Chuck began his career with FFUSA as an outside commissioned sales agent and doing so, landed more business than anyone in company history. But what’s really impressive is that most all of his clients came from referrals, which gives you sense of the level of service Chuck provided his clients. Today Chuck trains First Financial Sales Agents & Mangers in the preeminent philosophy and technique that has made him one of the most successful merchant services salesmen ever. In Chuck’s words, “When you take a real and sincere interest in your client and get them what’s best for them..always, they feel the difference, it endears them to you and they refer you to their friends, colleagues and other soon-to-be clients!”
“First off I must say this is one of the most exciting opportunities I have ever had. The “sale” is easy since there is not a product involved. You are offering people a way to help their business save money. I feel more like a consultant than a salesman sometimes after I get to know each owners specific business, and help them realize the best solution. I received the $3,000 bonus by helping every client that I could, who in-turn sent me referrals, so that I was able to meet my goal of 20 accounts in 60 days. Seize the moment!!!”
“I wouldn’t have my house without you guys! I finally purchased my first home due to the income I’m receiving from First Financial Merchant Services. My residuals more than pay for my mortgage payment and I’m definitely living a more comfortable lifestyle – all due to my success with this company. I’m very grateful and will always be loyal to First Financial Merchant Services!”
“The biggest difference [between First Financial and my last company] …when I started figuring my numbers …the amount I made on the deals I had written over the past 3 ½ years, which wasn’t bad …but compared to what I could have made [on those accounts] at First Financial? It just makes me ill.”
“The communication internally has been fantastic. …What amazes me is when you write up a deal and turn it in, within 15-20 minutes you’re already getting a response telling me where that deal is. Having that kind of response [from corporate] is incredible.”
“I just had this sense from what I read that this was a company that I could align myself with. They would support me, they would train me, and they had the kind of product and the GiveBack program that made a whole lot of sense to me!”
“I am excited to offer businesses in my area the $100 guarantee! It’s a great way to introduce myself to them. It alows me to bring something to the table before they even see the savings I can offer them. Our GiveBack Fundraising Program is second to none. I am truely excited about the opportunities I am uncovering with First Financial Merchants Services!”
I was thrown to the wolves by the last merchant service provider I worked for. Without training I wasn’t equipped to go after the big deals and I never could have closed them. I’d been looking for a company like First Financial for the last 9 years! Now I’m capable of anything with the training and support I’ve received from my Agent Director and John Eliason (Founder & CEO)! They invested in me and now I know I can go out and get the business!
“We help merchants get in a great program and we give back to our local community through our Give Back program making us a win win for all!”
“I was self employed. I had been an auto-mechanic for 30-years and owned my own business… I just picked up a small interest in this, and it worked so well that eventually I didn’t have to work 7-days a week anymore…. It got to the point where, when this started paying more than my day job, It was easy to quit!”
“The great thing about First Financial is that you can have a steady income and build a monthly residual… and that’s what made it such an easy transition for me- I knew the power of residual.”
“When I looked at the whole picture of First Financial and I saw what you were doing and how you were doing it, I didn’t see anything out there that even came close! It just clicked—It really seemed like the type of organization that I wanted to be a part of.”
“FFUSA has brought in an amazing additional income to our family. I never thought I could make this much residual income – it’s a dream come true!”
“Working with First Financial Merchant Services is the most fun I’ve had in as long as I can remember. When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them, I help businesses grow, and they are instantly interested in what I have to offer. It is incredibly satisfying knowing that for some of the clients I work with, getting access to Jay Abraham’s marketing expertise will be the definitive difference between them going under or growing and thriving.”
“I just love doing this! I don’t have to sell anybody anything other than my credibility as a human being. You walk in the door, they either have it, or they need it, and if they already have it, you just do a quick analysis for them, and explain the business to them.”
“I wrote about 60 accounts this year. Next year, I plan to write at least a hundred. And I plan to do that—at least a hundred—from this point on. What I want to do is get to the point where I’ve got seven to ten thousand dollars [per month] in residual income that I can count on. And I know I can do that [in two years].”
I’ve been in sales for a while, and this is different than anything I’ve done before. I have been with First Financial a month and already feel confident because of the sales training provided and the support I’ve received from my manager – Kurt, and the VP of Sales – Chuck Fowler. In less than a month I earned over $2,700 when I wrote my first six accounts…by working the program just like they show you. I’m confident a year from now I will be on track for a six figure income!
“My main thing with this company is that number one, you pay better than anybody else. But besides that, it’s the things you do support-wise; with the conference calls and being able to talk to Chuck one-on-one. Those types of things you don’t get other places. So I believe in what you’re saying- that you want to help people- and that’s big. You know, if you’re going to help people, you’re going to succeed as well. So I thank you for that.”
