In fact you’ll be very happy to see that many people just like you are partnering up with our company and creating both supplemental and life changing incomes in relatively short periods of time.
Regardless of your background, degree or no degree, young or old, part time or full time many people just like you are capitalizing on what this exploding and profitable industry.
Right now you could potentially make thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars in residual income just for your referrals.
Sales people, realtors, mortgage and financial service pros, entrepreneurs, single moms to CEO’s and regular people in communities all across America are cashing in big time already.
So what are all these people doing to supplement their incomes?
They’ve decided to become Bid Point Power affiliates.
Before we go any further, I want to ask you 2 simple questions.
What if you could make money on the energy usage of businesses in your community?
Question # 2
What if getting paid on those energy bills merely consisted of asking someone an 8 second question?
Now before I share with you how it works and what the 8 second question is, let me briefly tell you about who we are and why you should consider partnering with us…
Bid Point Power is an independent marketing group that is helping people just like you capitalize on the massive $750 Billion dollar business energy market by paying you handsomely for your referrals.
…and the best part is, there is absolutely no experience necessary, no real training needed and you NEVER have to sell anything or ask anyone for any money.
Here’s how it works…
Most people already have relationships with business owners.
However you may not realize that one of the largest financial strains on that business are their utility costs.
In fact in almost all cases, these businesses are being significantly overcharged but don’t even know it.
Now as a BidPoint affiliate, you have the ability to seriously help these businesses and again you don’t have to sell them something and it won’t cost the business a dime for what you are about to do.
Now the only thing you really have to do is get a copy of a businesses bill and most of our affiliates have been successfully using that 8 second question I mentioned earlier to do so.
So here’s the question that you can share with any business owner that pretty much works every time…
“I don’t know if I can help you or not but if you’ll give me a copy of last months utility bills, I can have them analyzed for Free to see if you’re being overcharged”.
Now once you have a copy of their bill, you’ll have access to our proprietary, real time, energy bidding portal.
Now you might be saying to yourself I don’t know anything about rates or energy stuff or whatever.
All you have to do is fill out some basic information from the bill and then our software and energy consultant’s team takes over and this is where the magic happens for both you and the business owner.
Since Bid Point Power has the largest collection of relationships with major energy suppliers in the country, you can have confidence that the business you are trying to help is going to get the best non-biased quote and best pricing scenario.
Now after the bidding process is completed, you’ll receive the supplier’s offers and be able to present it to your business allowing them to choose which offer is the best solution for their needs.
For the customer nothing changes, they will continue to get their bill from exactly the same company but it can be discounted now.
Now because you connected the supplier with the business, you will be paid a referral for that customer. The best part for you and the business is that you are paid on usage not on price.
This means we want to get the lowest possible rate for the customer because then you become their energy affiliate for life.
We represent the customer, not the supplier.
Now, whether it’s a big savings or a little savings it all adds up…..and the savings are important to those businesses.
We can help any type of business, big or small non-profit or for profit, even government offices and buildings.
As you can see it’s a very simple and extremely profitable process.
Now you may or may not be interested in this opportunity but…
Imagine how it would finally feel to take the financial pressure off.
Imagine how it would feel to quickly reduce your debts.
Imagine how good it would feel to pay for a child’s college.
Imagine how much peace you would have knowing you have enough money coming in for retirement.
Imagine being able to quit that second job.
Imagine being able to afford that dream vacation.
Imagine having more time to do the things YOU want to do.
Imagine having all that and more just because you helped a business out with something they have to have.
In any event, thanks very much for reading this and we hope you choose to join our TEAM at Bid Point Power.
Can you smell it? The inviting aroma of energy dollars in your pocket. It’s not just for the giants in the industry anymore. No, it’s out there for all of us for the taking. But that’s just it. We have to take it.
With hundreds of suppliers entering the game of deregulation, they have opened their arms to individuals who are willing to go out there and “sell energy”. You might say, “I am not a salesman.”
As you will see, there are many different ways you can get your slice.
You will have to decide on one or a combination of the following ways you would like to market Energy. There are really only three basic methods of moving products, and in this case the product of energy.
1-Linear Based Income
This is an hourly-based rate. For each hour you work, you receive a wage. If you don’t work, you don’t get paid. Did you know that 90% of Americans are accustomed to linear income? In this pay structure it becomes very difficult to get ahead because your cost of living requires you to work a certain amount of hours. There are only so many hours in a day!
There are many opportunities to secure a position or job with an energy company. First of all, you would have to follow the same steps anyone else would when applying for the position. This will consist of resumes and interviews…and as always… you will have to sell yourself.
You will need to keep in mind that the 40 hour work week is just a memory to most people these days who are working anywhere from 60 – 80 hours a week just to make ends meet. Keep in mind that even if you are making a few hundred dollars an hour, like most lawyers, you are still capped. How does someone have time to spend with their family when they are gone from home that long? The sad truth is they don’t. Since you get paid based on how many hours you work, when you stop the money stops. For this reason linear based income, whether it is with an energy company or not, is limited.
There are many definitions of direct sales, and the definition is ever evolving. Some people define it as the act of selling products away from a retail location, where products or services are offered on a one- on- one basis and sold directly by the salesperson to the consumer. Others define it based on function or how the salesperson works it whether they are selling door to door, doing party plans, or selling online.
For our purposes, we will define direct sales as a way of selling where the representative is compensated solely for their personal sales. In some compensation models once the sale is complete, the salesperson must move on to the next person and potential sale in order to continue to make money.
The most advantageous type of direct sales is to be paid residually month after month as long as the customer stays on the product or service. When you think of residual, think of doing the work once and getting paid over and over again. This along with up front commissions it quite lucrative. Earning income from residuals and up front bonuses will solidify your business and keep it stable in the long run. It also means that you will be more than likely to stay with your company instead of constantly looking for the next great deal.
Building a substantial income in energy through the direct sales model is a real, viable option, especially with commercial accounts. Commercial energy makes up 68% of the market. There are many businesses today with giant accounts that don’t understand deregulation or the choices available to them through other suppliers!
Many people, both professional and those with no real sales experience are already engaging in this model successfully. While representing an energy company, a good sales rep can educate and offer the business owner a free analysis on the options available to them and completely change their bottom line. Think of it! Do you know anyone who is interested in going out, “building a book of business” as we like to call it (this just means you are gathering and closing energy accounts), with gas and electric customers and getting paid month after month on those accounts? The result is a win-win for the sales rep and the business owner. The sales rep is making great money and the business owner is saving money. This money drops straight to the bottom line and can be utilized to increase profits, save and add additional jobs, or help employers grow the business. Business owners, especially these days, are open to listening to how they can save money. The opportunity to save with little or no effort from their utilities is very attractive.
As you will see in the coming chapters, the degree to which the direct sales rep has maximum success financially is based on many factors including the process of analyzing the customer bills and the handling of the process, along with the compensation plan that accompanies their effort.
Affiliate Marketing, is different from direct sales in that now you can build a team of people all marketing the same product or service and make money not only on your efforts but the efforts of others. This is called leverage. When you refer others, you can draw commissions from not only what you sell, but also on sales of your referrals or affiliate partners. This concept was best said by J. Paul Getty, who created one of the world’s greatest fortunes,
I would rather make 1 percent on the efforts of 100 people than 100 percent on my own efforts.
It takes hard work to get your business to the point where you can rely solely on your team’s efforts for 100 percent of your income. As a matter of fact in the beginning it might feel like you are the only one working day and night to get it “over the hump”. But be encouraged, the price may be high, but the reward far outweighs the cost. The good news is that today there is a business opportunity that allows you to use the power of leverage without having to quit your current job. You don’t even need a large team developed before you begin enjoying the key advantages. A team of any size will put you in a position to profit. This is the power of Affiliate Marketing.
Most business opportunities require hundreds of thousands of initial upfront investment and tens of thousands or more monthly overhead. Traditional business models typically take 3-5 years to recover its initial investment and to even reach its break point. Minimal initial start-up costs, long ongoing residuals and fast profitability are just a few reasons Affiliate Marketing is so attractive.
Also, when you consider how advertising has evolved in just the last 20 years, this model rises to the top. Print is becoming extinct and electronic media has been split into hundred of thousands of outlets leaving the business owner confused as to where his message would be most effective. Today, many companies employ Word-of-Mouth marketing tactics to build their customer base. The advantages of overcoming customer resistance and the ease of using social media on the Internet make Word-of-Mouth marketing an important tool for businesses desiring to grow while spending fewer marketing dollars. We all know that people do business with people they know, like, and trust. When a buyer is referred to a product, they tend to trust someone who gives them a referral because they assume the person was happy with the product or service.
This Word-of-Mouth model is now considered a legitimate way to do business and is being recognized and endorsed by many business leaders.
Watch the video below to see why so many people are becoming energy agents with BidPoint.
Over the past two decades, energy deregulation has ushered in a new era of competition and consumer choice. Just think of it, only 20 years ago options among power suppliers were unheard of! In the early 1990’s, open access to the wire system that delivers electricity to the commercial and residential market was guaranteed by Federal legislation. This is when our government said, “Yes!” we are now opening the floodgates of wealth to all who want to go after it in this amazing market that already brings in $200 billion in annual revenue.
Up until this time, the power market in each state was virtually monopolized. Gas and electric was distributed inefficiently across the country making prices fluctuate wildly. The deregulation of the electricity and natural gas industries has created vast opportunities for businesses and residential customers to reduce total expenses by enabling customers to select suppliers for the best combination of price and reliability.
The idea behind deregulation is that competitive markets benefit the consumer. It forces the supplier to compete on price and it allows them to create unique products and services. This is exciting for consumers because before deregulation, you simply paid the regulated rate just like everybody else. Energy is a product that is unconsciously purchased and habitually used. With a new awareness in the marketplace for different options, consumers are more excited than ever to make smart choices for their utility needs!
The fact is we now know that deregulation is working as we have seen it being implemented on a state-by-state basis over the last few decades. This is different than the long distance telephone deregulation that was done on a national level all at once. As many as 34 states (and growing) have some form of deregulated energy and these states are reaping the benefits of competition and have even written legislation regarding Energy Deregulation.
