How the Commercial Customer Process Works for BidPoint Agents
I think you will find this post very informative and easy to understand. You will also see how very lucrative the commercial energy space is.
Before we get started, I want to give a short disclaimer that there are no guarantees of income. The following examples are for training purposes only.
So here’s how the process works…
Electric energy is measured in kilowatts. As a BidPoint agent, you are paid on USAGE not on savings, not on cost. This is great for the customer in the fact that we can give them a true, non biased quote through our patent pending bidding process helping the business choose a best pricing option. The example below will help you measure potential commissions on business energy usage. As an example, 1,000,000 kwh’s would pay you, the agent, approximately $1,250 based on BidPoint’s commission plan to it’s agents.
Based on the example above, below are some examples of what types of energy usage is consumed by different types of businesses. These are just estimates but can give you an idea of what types of businesses to focus on. The great news is that closing even small accounts over a period of time can seriously add up.
For example, based on the commission structure for BidPoint agents above, if you were the originator of the deal that closed the school that was doing 2,000,000 kwh’s per year, you can see from the example below that it would be a great supplement to your income on an annual basis.
Another great example would be if you were the originator of the large church. Based on the examples above, that would pay out approximately $9,100 annually in residual income for that one facility.
And the last example below is obviously a very large account and uses a tremendous amount of energy but it’s still nice to see what types of accounts are in the market and can be bid on. This hospital example uses 40,000,000 kwh’s annually. The commission on that to the person who originated and closed the deal would be approximately $50,000 annually.
So what is the process that BidPoint agents go through to gather, submit and close energy customers? Let me break it down in a few easy steps.
Step #1 is to use our recommended ‘8 second’ question to create curiosity to the customer. Below you can see the question. It’s worked for thousands of people.
Step #2, If the business says yes, is for you to gather a few items. The first thing needed will be copies of their bills. We recommend the last 3 months billing statements so that we have a more consistent average of usage. The other item needed will be an LOA or Letter of Authorization.
Step #3 is submitting the information through your BidPoint back office for a RFP or Request for Pricing to Avion Energy.
Step #4 is really where the magic happens. Avion Energy then uses their patent pending real time bidding portal to utilize their network contracts with the biggest and best energy suppliers nation wide. Those suppliers then have the opportunity to bid against each other for best pricing options for the customer. Once the process is completed, usually in less than 24 hours, Avion energy then presents the bidding results to the business to see if they would like to choose one of the best pricing options.
So as you can see the process is really very simple. It takes some time and energy to gather customers and build a book of business but I’m sure you can see the benefits. Think about the fact that most businesses sign multi year contracts with us and that means residual income for you for years to come.
Could you imagine earning a great supplemental income just for referring a free service to businesses in your community that saved them money on something they HAVE to have?
Hundreds of people from all walks of life all over America are cashing in BIG TIME already and you could be next.
As you may or may not be aware electric and gas energy in many states is being deregulated now. This allows alternative suppliers in energy to sell power to commercial customers in your state as well as in others states that have already been deregulated.
You see, most businesses are being dramatically overcharged and don’t even know it!
As a BidPoint agent we give you the opportunity to help and we pay you handsomely for it.
Here’s how it works…
Most of our agents are just using this 38 word, “8 Second” script to get a copy of the bills from a business… “I don’t know if I could help you or not, but if you’ll give me a copy of last months utility bills, I know a company that will analyze them for free to see if you’re being overcharged.”
Once you have the information gathered from the business, you then login to your BidPoint back office and submit the information to our partner company, Avion Energy. They then use their patent pending bidding portal process to quickly get suppliers to bid against each other to search for better pricing for the business.
If the business chooses one of the better pricing options, YOU GET PAID!
One of the great things about our process is that the business owner gets a real, non-biased, pricing quote since we work for the business, not the supplier and we pay you on the usage not the price.
Below you can see real examples of people, just like you, who are supplementing their incomes with our business model:

Have you been thinking about the possibilities of becoming an Energy Agent? Perhaps you have been thinking about getting into the deregulated energy market but aren’t sure if this is something you’d like to do.
Today, we’ll share with you 5 reasons to become an Energy Agent with BidPoint, and how you can get your share of this 750 Billion dollar market.
Energy is a MUST Have!
Everyone uses natural gas and electricity…ESPECIALLY Businesses!
If you have any doubts that you can earn a respectable income in the deregulated energy industry, here are 5 reasons you can refer to!
Energy is the ultimate consumable. As you are already aware, everyone uses natural gas & electricity and it is very likely they will continue to do so. Having the ability to earn a passive residual income on something people and businesses won’t do without should be your first clue that this is the ultimate market to be involved in.
Businesses want what you have. How hard is it to convince someone to save money on something they are ALREADY USING? Not very hard, right? Consider the fact that most businesses largest cost of doing business are their utility bills, so the fact that you can help them save on those bills puts you in a position of strength when approaching businesses.
It’s a sale that isn’t complicated. If you have ever sold anything before, like cars, real estate, insurance, pills, potions or lotions etc; you know there is a lot of haggling, questions, and mountains of paperwork usually involved. Our model is simple, ask a business if you can do a free analysis to see if they are being overcharged then get back with them after the supply bidding process finds better pricing and show the business savings…pretty simple, huh?
Ongoing Passive Residual Income. Did you know that you can earn commissions on the business month after month, year after year? Think about that for moment… do a little work today and get paid for years and years. Did you know that most businesses sign up for long term contracts that guarantee your income?
BidPoint gives you flexibility. Most people have busy lives but are interested in other streams of income whether its to help make ends meet, pay for student loans, bring the spouse home, save for retirement and the list goes on… Did you know that most people who are energy agents go about their normal lives but tend to run into business owners all the time? Its easy to ask a business owner our 8 second question, “I don’t know if I can help you or not, but if you’ll give me a copy of your utility bills, I can have them analyzed for free to see if you are being overcharged”. This simple question allows average people from all walks of life help businesses in their communities save on their bottom lines.
There are plenty of ways to make money and this may or may not be for you. Hopefully these 5 Reasons to Become an Energy Agent have given you more confidence to move forward with your interest.

The long money in energy is business energy. Most of North America is already deregulated, meaning most of north america has the power to choose their energy retailer. Most have never made the decision to switch, meaning most are likely over paying right now. They don’t know and frankly they don’t care.
So what would happen if energy costs doubled? or tripled? Can you imagine a what a restaurant owner that’s spending $5,000 dollars a month right now in energy saw that double? or triple? If all of a sudden energy costs exceeded the rent?
The fed rate just went up for the first time in a decade. A wave is coming. The world of business energy is about to become very important.
In the last year, I have found that building a residual income is a realistic way for me and other baby boomers to secure income for retirement.
I am a college graduate and owned my own business for many years. My future looked bright, and then life happened. I found myself divorced, lost my business in which I had invested all of my retirement funds, and found myself starting over. Being 62 years old and single, it has been difficult enough supporting myself, and at the same time saving for retirement. The company I currently work for doesn’t provide any benefits, and health care costs are extremely high. Paying 100% of the costs for insurance takes a large chunk out of my paycheck.
When I was shown the residual income that could be generated in the energy deregulation market, I knew I had found my answer. I could help both individuals and businesses save hundreds to thousands of dollars on their utility bills, at no cost to them, and earn residual income month after month, instead of just getting paid a one-time commission! I was in!
It’s so refreshing to finally be involved in a business that’s truly on the ground floor, providing people with a free unbiased analysis, and building a residual income that will provide revenue for retirement. This is truly an amazing business. I’m so glad I not only saw the opportunity, but also am acting on it everyday!
Through careful research, we have found an incredible opportunity! We have partnered with a phenomenal, trustworthy company that is ahead of the wave in energy. For us energy deregulation equals financial/time freedom. Our parents had good intentions when they taught My wife and I that you have to go to school, get a degree, and get a job…. yes in that order. That is the direction we took and followed. We both have been in the medical sales industry for the past 12 years. Having three kids age 17, 14, and 3 years old, life can be hectic and costly. We knew we had to make a change,
The opportunity to earn revenue by educating others on their energy options is unique and exciting. To be able to stay home with our kids on snow days and take as many family vacations as we want has been incredible. Who knows, our dream of owning a cottage up north, might be here sooner than later. By seizing this opportunity, we are well on our way to realizing our dreams!
I have been an entrepreneur all my life. Years ago, I found a hobby of racing homing pigeons and turned this into a profit center. I discovered that if I found a way to monetize these young birds, I could earn money for feed and race fees. This was my first exposure to leverage…making money on the efforts of others. I realized that leverage was overly important to get ahead. At 21, I bought a few rental properties for extra income, which again gave me another profit center. Shortly thereafter, I got into real estate sales and began building a team of other like-minded real estate professionals. In March 2011, after 20 years in the real estate industry, and with the downturn in the economy, my wife and I chose to sell our four RE/MAX franchise locations. With two young children, we had no idea how we were going to support our growing family.
After being self-employed for over half our lives, getting a job was out of the question. We needed a way to earn an income that we had been accustomed to. We prayed to GOD to help us find a way to help other people as well as ourselves. Affiliate Marketing and/or direct sales seemed to be a perfect fit. After 2 ½ years with another company, we found ourselves out of options until we found this incredible company marketing gas and electric and helping people save money! We have been on fire ever since our introduction.
