NEW - Amerisight  (Available to ALL Ameriplan IBO's and members at no additional charge)
AmeriPlan® now has preferred pricing for Laser Vision Correction eye surgery through Amerisight’s nationwide network of Board Certified Ophthalmologists. The arrangement with Amerisight® means that AmeriPlan® members can have the procedure at a significantly reduced rate, with savings of 40 to 55% off the national average cost of LASIK surgery. Whether you have the Medical OR the Dental, Vision, Prescription and Chiropractic Plans this new program is available at NO additional charge.
Click here for more information (PDF format).
Testimonial:  Ameriplan  recently added a laser vision surgery benefit called Amerisight to our already fantistic package.  My husband had  gone in for laser surgery 3 weeks ago... (before Ameriplan added the NEW benefit) and paid $4000 (It would have been $4500 if we paid installments but he got the $500 discount because he paid cash)...

I called Amerisight to learn more about our plan for lasik, and spoke to someone extremely helpful and found out that I'd save 55% with our benefit.  So the same surgery is going to cost me $1900 TOTAL, with a doctor even closer to my home than the one who did my husbands eyes!  This doctor has done over 3000 laser surgeries in his career...  I know this because Amerisight had all his credentials listed in their system.
They praised Ameriplan on the call and it was a WONDERFUL experience.  Kelly Fuller, NSD

MAGAZINE ADVERTISING COOP for December..ending  November 14th!!

We now have opening for our  December  Magazine coop.   We will have a feature article along with a full page advertisement in the Home Business Connection Magazine (HBC).  This article will be an awesome opportunity to show your prospects and your team!    Some of our team members are buying magazine coops and splitting the cost with their 2 of their  team members...

The article will feature leaders like Kelly Fuller, Pennie Berk, Regina Morris, Rebecca Blacka and Janie Jones.


About the Magazine:

HBC has been running feature stories on NSD's with Ameriplan since September of 2005 and many brokers are seeing some huge growth coming out of the advertising.  Check out the recent testimonial they received from Tony S.


"Out of my first 7 leads, I was able to sign up 1 new broker who had a 10,000 person downline with Excel before they went bankrupt."


Now I'm not saying that every lead you receive will bring 10,000 people to your team, but this will give you an idea of the type of prospects that we will be reaching with our story.


So how does it work?  Cutting Edge Media will be assigning our story and ad an 800 number which prospects will call into.  If you purchase a share of the advertising, you will receive a voice mail box attached to that 800 number.  The voice mail system is rotational so the leads are spread out evenly across the board.

The advertising will be limited to 30 participants and if you would like to reserve your spot for next month just call Susan Miller at 866-235-4770 ext. 1170 and let her know you are part of my team.  She will get all of your information at that time.   We only have a few spots open so please contact Susan right away.

Keep in mind that when we enroll a $250.00 broker, we can get receive a $185.00 training bonus.   To view the ad and article visit: http://www.hbcmag.com/faht/sample.asp DO NOT place an order on this site.   Please call Susan for details.

Testimonial:

To whom it may concern:

I was a little nervous before joining this advertising venture but because I was told about it through my upline in Ameriplan, I trusted that things would be great. I was so glad that I took a chance because I got 2 amazing brokers out of it. The quality was outstanding. I started seeing results within a few days of the nationwide ad running. I loved getting alerted through the email because I didn't have to constantly call in and monitor my voicemail. I would definitely recommend advertising with HBC because I feel that it was money well spent. I had tried to advertise locally with little to show for it . Then I got involved with HBC and it has opened my eyes to an array of possibilities as far as advertising is concerned. Now I have branched out into other areas of advertising as well including my car windows and Internet advertising. And by talking to all of the leads generated from my portion of the advertising, I have become more comfortable talking to others on a daily basis. Thank you so much for the quality service you provide. Keep up the good work.

Sincerely,

Michelle Stepp

WHY YOU SHOULD GET TO A NATIONAL CONVENTION 
I would like to encourage everyone to attend any Ameriplan National Convention.

Conventions are a life changing experience and I promise you, everyone that attends a National Convention, will propel their business into HIGH GEAR and help you obtain that six figure income, you and your family so richly deserve.

I have seen many of our team members life's change, simply by attending a National Convention.

Here are some of our team members that attended convention and what they got out of it.

Pennie Berk, NSD
Attending convention is a life altering event.   It will take your business to an entirely new level in a very short amount of time.  You learn from top producers new ways in which to do the business.  You meet your team and spend valuable time with them.  It is truly amazing!

My first convention was Champions.  I left the convention with new found enthusiasm and determination.  I was determined to make it to NSD as quickly as possible.  I was just an RSD at the time.  In just 6 weeks, the 3 ladies that went to Champions with me moved up to RSD and I made SRSD.  A month later I was ESD.  At 8 months I was a NSD and when I returned to Champions weekend that year, I was at $50,000 President's Club.

Definitely, life altering!!!


Jennifer & David Horton, NSDs
I attended Convention last year for the first time.  I had been with the company for 14 months. I wasn't doing a lot with the business.  I lacked enthusiasm and drive.  My residual income for July of 2005 (the month of Convention) was around $330.  I am now going back with over $20,000 in annual, lifetime, residual income.  I attribute this increase to Convention being my main thrust and setting the tone for the next 12 months of my business.  I have not missed a company event since the last National Convention.  It is SO much more than the "hype" that I thought it was going to be.  It was all heart, I was able to experience the "connection" with the rest of the FAH team members.  I knew for the first time that there was something really "solid" behind my business.  The training is here, available now, I recognized at this Convention that success was already here.  It had arrived.  Success was waiting on me to do what I had been trained to do! As a result of attending last year and creating my foundational goals I am now anticipating to be at $50K in Residual income before the year end!  It was more than worth the sacrifice to buy plane tickets, motel, etc other expenses.  It paled in comparison to the benefits I was able to bring home to my business.


Janie and Michael Jones, NVP's
What did Champions weekend do for me?
I took my  husband Michael  to his first Champions weekend kicking and screaming all the way to Houston, TX in 2004. Michael had seen me try many homebased company and he thought  Ameriplan was another company that I had enrolled in and  was going to lose money.

The convention started and Michael was very quiet.   He had no expression on his face.  I could  tell that in his mind he was already determined that he was going to HATE it and nothing was going to change his mind. 

Champions Weekend started and as the meeting went on... his expression on his face started changing... then he started saying  "wow, this is incredible, over and over again"  throughout the meeting.

During the lunch break, he started meeting all the fantastic, genuine, warm, caring people in this company - at all levels.  He started seeing that this company cares, delivers on it's promise, and is the best thing around for changing peoples lives!

Now, he is a changed man!  He is always the first one to reserve our convention tickets and book our airline and hotel reservations.  We attended our 2nd Champions Weekend in February 2005 and he told me  "I didn't think they could top the last Champions Weekend but they DID".  Sometimes I think he loves Ameriplan more than I DO!!  From the training and the heartbreaking, yet so inspiring stories...it was awesome!

I could have NEVER imagined the number of lives that have been changed through this business.  People from all walks of life are making money, but it's more than that.  It's a company that does not give false hope and that can give a family who had to live on popcorn, movies and potatoes (you had to be there!) an income of $100,000 in residuals in 2 years.  Or like someone living in an tiny little house with no lights and no gas and taking cold showers.  But now, they don't have to be concerned whether or not the bills can be paid.  Someone who wanted to end it all numerous times, but now can buy pretty much whatever he wants - but most importantly, he has his self respect back.  Or Like someone whose favorite aunt was close to death - no need to ask permission "can I go?", no need to figure out how to pay for the trip, no need to worry that if you need to stay by her side a month that your bills will be paid.  I mean, this is priceless!  The stories seemed to be endless.  To listen to some of their testimonials please visit:  www.theschoolbusdriver.com

But the most amazing thing is the CARING and the FAITH and the COMMITMENT of the founders of Ameriplan  (Dennis and Daniel Bloom).  We are not dollar signs to them - they truly do care!  I've sat next to Daniel and Dennis Bloom and I have seen how tearing they get when brokers walk down the stage to receive their awards.

Yes, I want to make money, but I want to reach out and help people.  I learned from convention that this business is really about caring for people.   If we do that, the money will inevitably follow.

Let me close with a final thought. I would like to say to all of our team members, If you have not made the decision to fully pursue AmeriPlan, make that decision now. You really do not know what is sitting right in front of you...YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT TO THIS CONVENTION.  We can share other peoples stories with you, but it is nothing like the atmosphere that solidifies this thought - AmeriPlan is REAL and the work that you are doing right now, is worthwhile!

Michael and I and all the leaders in our group want to meet  you at  AmeriPlan's National Convention. We have many of you already that are coming to the convention and we cannot wait until that day arrives.  We are also so looking forward to seeing MANY of our team members go across the stage to receive their awards and recognition that they deserve.   It will be AWESOME!

(1) I got my nephew on the medical plan, and recently he used the dental program, he had 4 teeth surgically removed with anesthesia, the price w/o benefits would have been $800.00 when he used the dental card he paid $160.00, a savings of $640.00!
Kathy Bard

(2) My daughter went to the doctor and he ordered an MRI with dye. She saved
$950.00 on the MRI when
she used her AmeriPlan card!   Janet Slaton, SRSD

(3) I had to purchase an antibiotic today called Cipro. When I got to Walmart I asked the pharmacist (what the price was for
the full price, Medco discount, and the generic.

Full Price $77.62
Medco discount $68.66
Generic $ 8.53

My savings was $69.09! Thank you Ameriplan!
Eileen, Austin, TX


(4) I just wanted to share some good news.  My sister used Ameriplan Dental yesterday and her initial visit would have cost her $80, but she ended up paying $30.  On Monday she is scheduled for a root canal and crown, etc., without Ameriplan it would have cost her over $2400, but now she will have to pay $1100.  She's very impressed with the savings and says it ended up being better than the insurance plan she had with Group Health.

Shirley

(5) Just wanted to add how amazing This company really is. The second day of me joining this business, one of my co-workers called me to tell me that she would not be able to come in to work. When i asked her why she informed me that that she was having dental problems and need time to stay home and take care of it. Well the next day she came into work and the entire left side of her face was swollen. I asked her why don't you go to the dentist and have that looked at. She said she had not been to a dentist in years because she could not afford it.

Her situation was very bad and as her supervisor i could not let her work in that condition. So I asked her who was the last Dentist she had been to? She told me his name so i went online and looked up his name in the provider listing. She got really exited when she saw his name as one of our providers. So she signed up on the spot and I sent her off to the dentist. The next day she came to work the swelling was gone and she said that she saved over $900 on dental work and they made payment arrangements for the rest of the bill only because she was an Ameriplan member. fast forward a few months later she had to go back to the dentist for an emergency and again saved $135. Thanks to ameriplan

Larry Wright, RSD - Florida

I went out this morning with my girlfriend who also has Ameriplan, to look for glasses.   Sears was having a 50% off sale and even with their sale Ameriplan saved her over $100!!   The girl told her she saved more with her card then she would have with the sale!

(6) I went to Pearle Vision and found a pair of glasses and saved over $100 also!  I also called a new dentist and when I told her I had Ameriplan she told me that was great because I will have a substantial savings when I have my appointment next week!  Marilyn  Lawson


(7) I had to tell you, again, how wonderful our benefits are!  I went yesterday to get 2 prescriptions filled.  One was an Albuteral Inhaler.  The original cost was $49.11.  With Ameriplan I paid $18.73!  The second one, is Allegra-D.  The original price was $259.96.  I paid $95.31!  I am so grateful for these benefits!

MEMBER LEADS

theAPlan.biz is well-regarded as the top member lead source for our team.  They have a lot of features that make this lead source head and shoulders above the rest.  This is a long email, so make sure you save it for future reference.
Remember, use your enroller's referral link if you decide to purchase member leads.

First, before I get into why the APlan rocks, let me suggest one thing you do before you work the membership side too much:  use the benefits yourself.  If you can tell anyone that you saved $240 at the dentist, it will go tremendously far.  You will also have a lot more belief in your voice, and on the phone, that is so critically important.


So, on with the tutorial.  Why are APlan leads the best?

these leads are totally exclusive to you--no one else will call them based on the survey they fill out

the survey they fill out online is extensive and requires all fields to be entered in order to get into their database


their return policy is great.  If a lead is bad for pretty much any reason other than they just say no, you get the credits returned to you.  Bad email OR bad phone OR "no one asked for information" OR doesn't speak English OR several others.

you get a lead capture survey page included, which results in f re e leads for you.

you get to earn credits for referring others, in full compliance with AmeriPlan policies


you can use the service to recruit brokers who want to know, How do I find members?


you can change your membership rate at any time.  I recommend starting out at a level you feel comfortable with (at least Bronze to start as the Virtual Business Manager is worthless as a new member), and then after a couple of months of advertising your lead capture page online and offline, you can drop down to the Virtual Business Center

and most importantly:  You get to see almost ALL important information about the lead BEFORE you buy it.


Other than when they signed up for the survey and their actual phone number, you see what they are looking for, what Zip Code they are in (so you can make sure they have good providers), and if they want family, health, just dental, etc.

In order to get the most out of this service, I have a few suggestions that I always like to share with my team--but otherwise guard relatively closely.  All of this may be confusing at first, but will make sense as you do the tour, the training on the site, and go through the profile acquisition process.


These may come relatively randomly, so forgive me in advance.

Use the same filter(s) EVERY time.  With thousands and thousands of leads, theAPlan works off a filter system.  You eliminate all the people who would make bad leads in your mind using the filters.


Ideally, I suggest you use one or two filters in such a way to produce only 5 leads at a time if you are part time, and 10 leads if you are full time.


The one drawback of the APlan is you don't know when they asked for the information.  When you get your first batch, each lead may be as old as 30 minutes or 30 days.  But if you get it down to 5 or 10, and you grab all 5 or 10, then the NEXT time you use the same filter, all of them will have filled out the survey since you last looked.  This helps me make sure my leads are within 48 hours fresh--sometimes just a couple of hours old.


The main filter to use:  City.  You can use the Zip Code, but if you go to a state in provider search, and click the City header, you can see the main cities that have a lot of providers (more than 5 each is my cut off).  Keep track of these cities.  You can put as many cities in at one time as you want, and it will increase your profile costs just by .25.


Filter #2:  EITHER method of payment OR type of membership they are looking for.  If you are going for pin level, then it doesn't matter too much whether you get an individual DVPC or a household medical plan--a member is a member.


But if you are at RSD, and you are building your check, then either filtering for or looking at the profiles that are looking for the higher commissioned plans, you will see a much higher return on investment.  A $3.50 lead that generates $6, $10 or $12/month is going to pay off a lot more than that $3.60.  I usually use one or the other of these filters, and then just look at the results for the other category.


Spend the time to learn the setup of your autocampaign.  The one the APlan comes with is pretty cheesy.

Setup your lead capture page, and use that in your member flyer advertisements.  You'll have something that looks like this:  www.theaplan.biz/tellmemore.  This will give you all their information that you ask for in the survey, and eliminate your time wasted talking to tire kickers.


Use the Contact manager to keep track of activity.  There are simple buttons to hit when you've left a message, or signed someone up, and the APlan will track that so you can see the rewards of your activity.

Create folders for interested, not interested, new members, etc., so that when you have a decision from a prospect, you can file them.  As you do this, you build up the folders, and when a promotion like this comes along, you can send an email to everyone in a specific folder updating them on what's up with AmeriPlan.


Only get 4-5 leads at a time.  Then work those prospects, set up follow ups, and look at your calendar.  Too many people use the APlan and get 25 prospects at one time.  Then those people sit in their contact manager because they can't get through to everybody.  So call 4-5, see your results, get an idea of your schedule, and then get some more.  Since you are using the same filter, and you filter for a very small number, you should then have very fresh prospects every time you do this.


Very important (and I learned this from talking with Dr. Clydene at last year's convention):  When you call them, realize that you are the deal they are looking for, and they have contacted you in order to sign up.   If they don't want to sign up, they will tell you, but otherwise, you are there to sign them up and help them start saving money.

Posture is extremely important here for your success.  Give them broad discount ranges, and give them specific savings when they ask for it.  If they don't ask for the specific procedures, etc., don't spend time telling them because you will lose them.


As with any member prospect, be sure they understand how discount benefits work, and that we are not insurance.  When they filled out the survey, they likely have the "insurance" mindset.  So be sure to educate them at the value of our service and how we are different than insurance.


As with any new member, be sure to connect with them after they have joined so they understand how to use the plan.  They also may know others who need our great service. 

As for which plan to take on, realize you have a month to use all the credits, and on average, you'll see one lead for every 4 credits.  I recommend the Bronze plan so you can get a feel for it during your first month, then either the Silver or Gold for the second month if you like what you see and have made money.  If you are just starting to member prospect, it will take some time for you to get the hang of prospecting members, so work with your upline on how you are doing with this part before spending too much energy on cold leads.


After you have a good ad campaign running (fliers, online ads, etc.) that promotes your survey pages, you should start to see leads coming in through your own link.  These are free to you.  Once you see that happen, then you should cut back your lead package to the Virtual Business Manager.  Then, when a promotion happens, I like to kick it back up since that's my focus for the month.


Talk to your upline about whether they are already in the APlan.  If they are, use their referral link.

I hope this is helpful to you, and I know if you're geared up for this promotion, great things are going to happen for you this month!  What a great foundation 6-15 members will have on your residual and future business.

HOW TO GET INTO PROFIT MODE?

Visit step #5 on our training site and study all methods to advertise the benefits and the business opportunity. Basically, there are 2 ways to promote this business. Offline and Online. Learn Both!  Yes, you can do it...we did it and you can too.

Advertising is fun and very exciting! Just think...you are building YOUR business!  
Have you tried... Free Internet Advertising (learn how to post ads in the internet)  (see step #5)  
Have you tried.. FREE post card leads
Have you tried... Referrals are  free and it works!

Many of our team members start generating checks simply by letting everyone know that they are working for the largest discount health benefits company nationwide.    Have you tried... Placing small inexpensive newspaper ads. My enroller has an ad in the Green Sheet.  She placed an ad that states...  My Moms Works at Home call and ask her how. Then she placed her website and her phone#.  She has this ad running every month and she always receive phone calls.   If what you are doing right now is not  getting the results you want, don't be afraid to try other methods.  Try and try again...you will find a perfect method that works for you.  Be FEARLESS!  It takes guts to get out of the ruts. :-)    Note:  All methods of advertising works.   Just keep in mind that you have to be consistent. Consistency is the key to this business.   If you really want something in life, stop wishing and instead, start building a Network Marketing business and GET EVERYTHING you want!            To the top

How to make $25,000, $50,000 and $100,000 with Ameriplan
Many of you have asked me "What does it really  takes to get to $25,000 or $50,000  in LIFETIME residual income in one year with Ameriplan"? 
Below you will find information  that will help you understand exactly what it takes to make  25k and 50K  in one year!

Of course, once you hit $50,000, we will then work on hitting $100,000!   Get the desire to make an annual six-figure income.  Dream BIG, your dreams are going to see you through.

To Hit $25,000 in one year
Make 3 complete presentations a day, 6 days per week
A complete presentation consist of "hello" to "which package makes more sense to you"

That's 18 presentations a week.  Out of those, you would have enrolled 2 brokers each week. That's  8 brokers a month.

Stick with the "3 a day presentation"  and hit $25,000 in lifetime residual income  a year.   This is income that will continue growing and paying you for the rest of your life.

To Hit $50,000 in one year
Make 5 complete presentations a day  working part-time, 6 days per week
Again, a complete presentation consists of "hello" to "which package makes more sense to you"

That's  30  presentations a week.
Out of 30 presentation a week, you would have enrolled  3  brokers a week   That's 12 brokers a month.

Stick with the " 5 a day presentations"  and hit $50,000 in a year in LIFETIME residual income.  This is income that will continue growing and paying you for the rest of your life.

Is it worth it? ABSOLUTELY!We only ask people to spend a  few hours each week and all they have to do is simply talk to some people about an opportunity in which they can help people   work at home or help people save money on their health benefits. You don't have to worry too much about what you say or how good you are, because  you will get better.
Just invest 1-2 hours per day. And at the end of the year you might be pleasantly surprised. You would have built a great income that will continue growing and paying you for the rest of your life.

Is it  simple?  sure it is.  But you have to stay focused and committed.  That is all I did.  I focused on my Ameriplan business and I just made those calls everyday.  Good or bad days,  I stayed focused!

Am I glad I did it?  YES!   I retired my husband and we now have the freedom to do whatever we want for the rest of our lives. Our checks are always growing, every single month and that  is exactly what I want for you to have and I know you can do it. How do I know?  because I did it and I'm certainly not any different than you are.
Okay,  so you are committed....you see the BIG picture and you are ready to roll-up your sleeves like I did and give it all you got!   Great, let's get to work.

My tips to get the job done:
#1.  Get trained to be the best recruiter.
Yes, you can learn this, but you'll need training.  We  have lots of tools to help you become the best recruiter.  Take advantage of them.
Make the commitment to attend at least  2 training calls every week.  We have LIVE recruiting calls.  Jump on those calls and listen to TOP ACE recruiters.

Work hard on yourself, you will earn a life.
* Develop your gifts
* Develop your vocabulary
* Develop your power and mind
* Do not settle for less than you can be
* Attend 2 training calls a week
* Listen to professional trainers and motivators
  Dani Johnson  (on our training site)
  Ellie Drake   (on our training site)
  Jeffrey Combs    (on our training site)
Ameriplan has 10 top recruiters NATIONWIDE and several of them from our team!
When they first started, they didn't know anything about recruiting but they took the time to get trained.   They  jumped into training calls, they practiced their script, they perfected their presentation and they focused on recruiting.  I promise that  you will become very good at what you focus at.

#2.  Make the commitment.
The people who make a personal commitment to work the business are always successful! It's never failed.  It will not fail you either.

People who are reluctant to make the commitment never get started. In most cases  it's not because the need is not present.  It's not because there is no time - we always make time for the things we want and need. And it's not because there is  no help available.

In order to make a proper commitment, it is essential that you recognize that your plan has been proven to work for anyone who works the plan.

Make the commitment that this is your new chosen profession and quitting is not an option.
Make the commitment to work 10 to hours a week to build your Ameriplan business.  You are in control of your success.

Realize your performance and production are dependent solely upon activities that have already been proven to work for thousands and thousands of others.

Get committed. Stay Committed.  Your dreams are going to see you through.  Fire up! Just do it!
Persist until you succeed!

#3.  Have plenty of people to talk to.
Leads are the lifeblood of your business.  If you talk to 5 people and day and if I talk to 1 person a day, you are going to enroll more brokers at the end of the week.

So, how do you get leads?  You can learn how to generate leads ONLINE or OFFLINE.

We have listed many advertising methods on our training site to generate free leads online and offline.
To generate leads offline and online,  please visit our training site.  Step #5

Don't be afraid to reinvest in your business and purchase leads or place small newspaper ads.
We have lots of advertising methods on  Step #5

Our goal is to  help many of our team members become  top recruiters.  Make the decision that you want to be the very best and it will happen.  It will take practice and training but I promise you, that if you master recruiting,  you will build a large group that will continue paying you residual income for the rest of your life.

Three years ago, I made the decision that this was going to be my new profession and I was going to make it happen NO MATTER WHAT.    Quitting was NEVER an option.    Even if it would have taken  5 years for me to hit the highest level in the company, I would of done it.  For you see, I had already made up my mind that I was going to reach the top.  My family needed Ameriplan and I was NOT going to let them down.

I  got into ACTION mode.  I practiced my script many times, I got  on the phone, sharpened my communication skills, and  finally mastered recruiting.  You see, you WILL become very good at what you focus on.   I focused on recruiting and that is why I went from $0 to $300,000  in 3years and  growing!.

Did I have bad days and did I have people that quit and did not see this opportunity?  ABSOLUTELY.  I just kept on talking to more people and guess what:  I have found the most amazing people that are now my best friends and they have joined me on this amazing journey called "FREEDOM AT HOME".

They are absolutely on track to make a 6 figure income, paid residually, for the rest of their lives!  I'm so proud of them.  I know it took a lot of courage to  do things that ordinary people do NOT want to do.  But for their courage, they will have everything they have ever dreamed off.  They will never have to work for somebody else and they will have all the money and freedom they want.

What made it happen for me and our top leaders on our team? We got trained and we always made sure we  had plenty of  people to talk to.


My suggestion is and always has been:

Get good quality leads, talk to less people.  Work smarter and not harder.

The quality of the leads you purchase makes a BIG difference.  It will save you lots of time,money and frustration.

I will be running live business opportunity calls every week at 2pm and 7pm to help close your prospects for you. We are having great results with our live business opportunity call so please take advantage of it!

Affordable lead source

Get ready for some more awesome months!  Our biggest months have always been August thru May !!! There will be many people looking for work at home.  The holidays are coming and people will also be thinking ways to make HOLIDAY money!! Take this opportunity and build your team!  I took advantage of all the peak season and went from 0 to $300,000 in 3 years.   I promise you that if you build your team, you will build your dream and you won't recognize your life!!  I'm living proof of it!!

If you are a new broker, grab your script, practice it and start talking to people...Don't worry about knowing everything.  If you have a question that you do not know, call your enroller or brokers support.   I promise you that the more you talk to people, the more comfortable you  will become.  This BUSINESS WILL make sense to people. 
Ameriplan pays daily, our credentials are amazing and people WILL  absolutely LOVE the fact that they can build a 6 figure income in 2 to 4 years  (what's not to love )

If you are an existing broker, THIS IS THE TIME to go full force.  Go for it!  Don't be afraid of success!  Go for Greatness!  This business is awesome  They will always have open arms for us.  This business does not judge, nor does it matter where you come from, nor how old you are.  They take ordinary people and give them this wonderful opportunity to go all the way to the top.  The opportunity is here for YOU.

Stay positive.  If you give life something positive - it will reward you, if you give life something negative, it will punish you.  Everyday you place information, ideas, and beliefs into your mental factory and this in turn is placed into your MENTAL PROJECTOR.  If you ever wonder why your "life" screen is playing something bad - I am almost positive it was self-inflicted.  Simply input good information.

How do you take advantage of the busiest time of the year?    Simple..all you have to do is make sure you have plenty of people to talk to.

Where do you find people to talk to?
Well, you can read step #5 on our training site and learn about advertising online and offline.    Many of our team members love to build our business thru the internet and many of you are seeking affordable broker leads.

WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE A HOMEBASED BUSINESS

"It is anticipated that by the year 2005, 50% of households
in the US alone will be involved in a home business"
- Newsweek Magazine -

As you can see, home based business's are gaining in popularity in America. This is especially true now because the IRS has recently re-instituted the home business tax deduction which allows home business owners to deduct up to $5000 per year in business expenses off of their income tax. This means that you can start a home business and not make a dime with it and still be able to come away with an extra $5000 in your pocket at the end of year!

"A home based business is the best tax shelter left in America"
Sandy Botkin (IRS Attorney & Tax Reduction Institute Chairman)            To the top

PROSPECTING TIPS
Take Control of Your Life
Home based business are booming.  Many people want off the freeways, out of the subways, away from the big cities, more time to do what they want to do, more time at the gym and are finding out that they have health challenges of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, hypertension and are getting fatter every year. Credit card debt, college expenses, travel expenses, upkeep of a car and home expenses are going to skyrocket.  Take control of the rest of your life and get busy recruiting!

As the Leader  Goes..
If you are always prospecting and front line recruiting, you will succeed.  As the leader goes, so does the Success line!  Your brokers will copy what you do!

Patience is a virtue
It is hard to prospect without needing to know what the outcome of your work will be.  Starting to build a network marketing business form the ground floor up can be daunting.  Remember, all top brokers started getting their first recruit.  Author Og Mandino reminds us to follow nature's example that nature never moves quickly. We must pass through our experiences, making sure we're not quick to pass judgement.  Time alone can bring us good news or the reward that is in store.  Walking away too soon, out of impatient, robs us of lie's choicest blessings.  Keep prospecting.

Step up to Bat
As a professional baseball player, if you can average 4 hits out of 10 time at bat you are heading for the Hall of Fame.  In this business you can expect your prospect to say No 5 times before they join.  With this in mind, realize that with every rejection you receive, you are one step closer to getting a broker!

Tough Times Never Last
Dr. Robert Schuller says, "Tough times never last but tough people do."  Verdi says, "Fortune favors the brave!:  Minimize the emotional ups and downs.

You have Everything to  Gain
Just suppose this business works for you?  Isn't it worth giving it a serious try? Many brokers have achieved more than they would ever imagine.  If you give up, you go back to your former life.  You have nothing to lose.  On the flip side, if you really work the business, you might surprise yourself.  Would it be worth it to you?  At least give it one year.  You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.  What have you got to gain?  A lifestyle only few can dream of.  What have you got to lose?  Absolutely nothing. 

If you Cannot enroll a broker
If other team members are enrolling brokers and you are not, STOP and take a look at what you are doing.  It's not our services, it's not the plan, it's something YOU  are doing that YOU need to change.  It might be your words, your script, your people skills.  Try and try again!

Listen to our live  prospecting calls  that are held every Thursday and Friday and learn how  top recruiters talk to prospects.  Master it!   We did it and you can too! Recruiting is Fun!  We are  changing people's lives and you will see it  more and more each day as you work your Ameriplan business.

Taking Care of your Home While Running Your Home Business
Time Saving Tips!

Remember that as a work-at-home mom, your home becomes part of your business. You work where you live and live where you work. I was surprised when I first started working at home to find that my home was never really used before, when I was working away from home.  Now I have to manage my home- and my home business.

Find your comfort level and realize that you’re not alone!

Housekeeping and Children
Housekeeping tasks can take over all of your free time.  But you can actually minimize the time you spend taking care of day-to-day chores by working with your children and following these simple steps:

1.Teach your children to clean up after themselves.  Keep small brooms and dust pans, a Dust buster, and paper towels where they can reach them when they need to clean up a small spill.

If your children tend to be competitive, make up cleaning contents. Try the bed-making dash or the take-out the trash triathlon. Use  a stopwatch; create charts of personal bests and household record holders.  Blue ribbons and trophies can be purchased inexpensively at discount stores or party supply stores and they really add to the fun.

Limit your cleaning time and set a timer.  Designate your cleaning time into 10 minute intervals during which everybody pitches in to clean the house.  You’ll be surprised at how much you can accomplish in a short time if everyone focuses on his or her tasks.  Since there is a time limit, helpers are less likely to drag their feet.

A trip through the car wash is a big treat for my kids.  Get your children to help vacuum, wash the windows, and clean the inside of the car with the payoff being a trip through the wash.

Working at home is like adding a new member to the family.
Starting a home business is like adding another member to your family.  As you can imagine, this will require some adjustment on everyone’s part.  Your priorities and expectations will determine how well you will adjust, communication, help, and humor will make the transition easier.

First of All, Determine your Priorities
Defining what you expect from your business and family is important before you start your business.  What are your priorities?  Do you need to have a clean house?  Make lots of money?  Have free time for yourself?  Will your spouse be supportive?  Will your children be expected to help with the business or will the business be off-limits to them?

Will you work regular hours?
For me, one of my top priorities is my family, which is why I chose a home business in the first place.  When all is said and done, I would rather say I’ve had a marginally successful business and a successful family life. 

Besides, once I build this business, I’ll have all the time and freedom to spend many many years with  my children AND my grandchildren!  (which I’m very looking forward to spending lots of time with them as well).  I plan to be the best grandmother ever! 


I do believe that it’s possible to combine business and family successfully. 
1st: Adjust your expectations.  

The first day is very exciting!  You got a homebased business and you can’t wait to get started. Then reality sets in, and reality doesn’t always meet our expectations.  The day-to-day challenges of running a business starts to take a toll.  Do not give up!  Adjust your expectations and realize that this is normal and to be expected.  Take advantage of regional offices (if you have them in your area). Talk to other people that work at home.  Stay plugged into training calls and listen to people that have built a huge business (like  Dani Johnson, Elie Drake and Jeffrey Combs). 

Talk to other stay at home moms that are on our team.  They will understand what you’re going through, and often just talking to someone else who understands can help you get through the tough times.  Also keep your priorities clear, go back to your priority list.  Remind yourself why you started the business in the first place, and keep your focus on your long-term goals.

Communicate:
Don’t expect your spouse and children to be psychic.  If you require something of them, let them know.  Now that you’ve established your priorities and expectations, communicate them to your family.  And be specific.  I get more  help if I say to my husband, “Please empty the dishwasher and make eggs and toast for the boys” than if I just ask, “ Will you help in the kitchen?” 

I also tell my family the details of my business and sometimes discuss questions I have with them.  We are always talking.  We make a point of sitting down for meals together so we can all share what is happening in our lives.  We usually keep the radio off in the car and use this time for talking, too.  We set goals together and choose something fun that we will all do with the business money when our goal is reached.  It can be simple as a night out for ice cream or as big as a family vacation.  This way, they also reap the rewards of the business.  And I often get great ideas from  my husband and the boys. 

Accept Help
Since time is a limited resource, you’ll want to spend it in the most efficient manner possible. 
Face the fact that you can’t do everything.  Get out your priority list again. If you don’t want to turn over full-time care of your children to someone else, explore other options.  Maybe have a sitter come into your home occasionally or share part-time child care with another home-based parent.  Then plan your client meetings and work during those  hours.  Hire a neighborhood teenager to help out with chores around the  house. 

Help is out there; accept it.

National Training School

One of the best things AmeriPlanB.  has done is to create a National Training School for New Senior Regional Sales Directors (SRSD).  This will be a monthly school for new SRSDs.


If you are an IBO or RSD and promote to SRSD by Oct 31st, AmeriPlan will fly you down to Dallas at company expense to attend the first scheduled class.


AmeriPlan  did an extensive search for a National Trainer and everyone they talked to had one gentleman on their list. The new National Training Director is Dale Calvert. Dale is a legend in the network marketing industry. He has build an organization of 60,000 reps and has been a top earner in his company at $3 million a year.

If you are anywhere close to SRSD, you need to do what it takes to be an SRSD by Oct 31st. Start speaking the victory and you will be there. I was so excited about having Dale as our guest speaker and new Training Director, that I purchased three of his DVDs on EBay when I got back home. Many ESDs - NSDs want to attend this training, but it is exclusively for New AmeriPlanB. SRSDs. Get it done!



Note: Leader's of Tomorrow Conference will still happen in Feb for selected SRSDs and above. The selection will be made soon.

New IBO Training: AmeriPlanB.  has hired a group of professionals to initially contact and welcome new IBOs to AmeriPlanB.  and schedule a 30 minute training with each new IBO. They will get the basics and get the number for their sponsor and followup training information.

Top Producer's Trip / ACE Programs.
There are eight months left (May 31 2007) to qualify to become and AmeriPlanB. ACE for enrolling members and/or IBOs or qualifty for the TPT to Quebec Canada in Aug 2007. Many at the Conference were recognized for being on track for ACE and TPT. It does take consistency, putting on members/IBOs every month and promoting team members throughout the year. We had RSDs and SRSDs on the trip to Alaska. You can be an ACE or go on the TPT if you make the decision.

The Myth

If you think you're just going to wake up one day and be financially secure, you're living a lie.  Find out how to proactively live the life you've always dreamed about.

We all have dreams. Some of us want to spend  more time with our friends and families, others want to do more with their free time, drive nice cards or live in fancier homes.  We all want a boss who cares about our well-being, a vacation on a long-forgotten tropical island and relief from our monthly bills, expenses and overflowing debt. And to achieve these dreams, all we have to do is work harder, longer hours.  In doing so, our companies will take notice, pay us more money and everything will work out, right?  wrong.
It's a myth.

The truth is things are not going to go our way unless we make a change.  A change in the way we approach our jobs and,  more importantly, the way we approach our lives.  Until we take control, we're destined to live by someone else's rules, conditions and limitations.  But what kind of change?  How can we revamp our financial priorities enough to secure the things we want out of life without starting completely over?  Well, we could hit it big with the stock market - capitalism at it's finest.  OR is it legalized gambling?  The stock market is certainly ripe for making a killing...but it's just as easy to get killed.  While millionaires are certainly made everyday on Wall Steet's hallowed floor, just as many lose their shirts..Or Worse.

Maybe a shift into a different field is more secure-footed and could help increase your earning potential.  All it'd take is additional schooling, and every year, millions of people choose higher education as a mean to improve their lives.  While it's an admirable and noble pursuit, it doesn't come cheap, nor does it guarantee a better job.  And remember, you're trying to squeeze more hours out of your day, not fewer, so where are you going to find the time to take a class?

At night, meaning you'd be seeing even less of the family your already don't see enough? The reality is most people are already too busy to go back to school.

INTRODUCING PLAN B
Feeling hopeless?  Don't worry - there is a solution to your dilemma, the same dilemma shared by millions just like you who are looking for alternatives to the roads their lives have taken.  It's an opportunity that has generated more than $100 billion worldwide.  Ever thought of opening your own business?  Statistics suggest you have.  Ninety-six percent of adults between the ages of 25 and 44 have looked into starting their own businesses.

In fact, 74 percent of the millionaires in America own their own businesses.  And many of them had never previously owned a company.  They all had one universal trait in common that helped ignite their success, however, and that is courage.  They were willing to go where a few had ventured before and never let a lack of experience stand in the way of their dreams.

Their dreams, like yours, include freedom from the constant threat of unemployment, pension plans and other benefits that are being reduced or even eliminated and corporations that are being swallowed and pit out by their own greed and taking thousands of innocent employees down with them.

So why aren't more people following the leads of these self-made millionaires and start their own businesses?  Because we are conditioned to fear change.  We stay at jobs for their security no mater how many dead ends we run into.  We follow career paths that others recommend no matter how ill-advised they may actually be.  We buy into the myth that success is easy if we're willing to get a degree, work hard and invest wisely.  It's safe, it's easy and,  as you're quickly finding out, it's a lie.

Think about the power that would come with being your own boss, setting your own hours.  It sounds great, doesn't it? But like a lot of your peers, you've probably found business ownership doesn't come cheap.  Unfortunately, franchise fees can range from $20,000 to $1 million, meaning the "average" franchise is not for the "average" person.

And we haven't even added in insurance, employees, marketing, office space....

Plus, what you thought was a busy work week could soon pale in comparison. Owning a business means you're working six or seven days a week, opening the store in the morning and then locking its door at night.  And remember, the franchiser earns up-front fees and gets paid royalties based on grow revenue, not profit.  The franchiser makes money whether you do or not.

But what if there was a way to tap into the proven success of a franchise without the high overhead, capital investment or employees?  What if you could own a business that is modeled after successful companies?  Like Ameriplan. 

Opportunity Knocks - Anyone Home?
You have an opportunity for average individuals looking to turn their lives around to market the product or services through word of mouth or thru the internet.

As an independent broker of a virtual franchise, your efforts help the company save millions on advertising on distribution... and they're willing to pay you handsomely for your efforts.  It's a "read made" business complete with products, services, policies and procedures, and training - all at a fraction of the investment of a standard franchise or a traditional start-up business.

It is a model that has been around for more than 50 years. Currently more than 13 million people in the US alone are already acting as independent distributors/brokers, helping to generate more than $29 billion in revenue every year.

More than $29 billion being generated by stay-at-home moms, college students, retirees....And here's the best part:  It's something you can do in your spare time!  You can even do it from the comfort of your own home!

All that matters is your  willingness to make a change.  CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE.  Change your finances. Change your life.

In  fact, the majority of people in this industry do just that:  work their business around their existing jobs, around their hobbies, around their kids and still qualify for the incredible tax advantage of owning their own home-based businesses. And many more people all over the world from all walks of life have made it their full time career.

MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE.
Have we got your attention yet?  Good.  Now that you found a solid company with a great service that you feel passionate about.  You  need to let everyone you are open for business.  Remember, the power driving this industry is word of mouth.  If you don't believe in the service or opportunity, how are you going to pass its remarkable qualities to others?

Start spreading the word
The sky literally become your limit.  Just think if your career didn't have a glass ceiling, if there were no fear of layoffs, no schedules that took you away from your family.  This industry pays for productivity - the more you put in, the more you get out.  So you can more effectively leverage your time.  It's not about working harder; it's about working smarter.

J. Paul Getty once said, I would rather have 1 percent of the efforts of 100 men, than 100 percent of my own efforts. :  Sound advice from  a self-made billionaire, don't you think?  To put it another way, imagine that you were in the business of mowing lawns.  If you made $25 per lawn, and, on a good day,  could mow eight lawns, you'd be making $200 a day.  This is an example of 100 percent of your own efforts.

Now imagine that you own a lawn mowing referral business.  You spend your time finding lawns that need to be mowed and then hire contract mowers to actually mow them.  If you charged $25 a lawn and then paid 10 independent contractors $20 per lawn, and they each mowed eight lawns a day, you would profit $5 each yard.  So every day, they, not you, would mow 80 yards and you'd put $400 in your pocket.

Which sounds better to you?  of course some people are going to say, "Wait a minute! That's selling!  I don't know how to sell!  I don't like to sell!"  That's OK.  Remember:  This business thrives on word-of-mouth marketing, not selling.  You probably already do it and don't realize it.  What about that movie you saw last week - when you told your friend how good it was and that they should rush out and see it, that's word of mouth.  Wouldn't it be nice for your efforts?  Well, that's the benefit of virtual franchises.  You get paid for such recommendations.  You see, it's not really about sales.  It's about exposure.  In direct selling, that's  your job.  Tell people about the products and services that you already know, use and lie, and "word of mouth" become a "business."

As a virtual franchise owner, you're encouraged to find others like yourself:  People who want to own their business and get paid for their efforts; people who want out of the rat race but have found few places to turn.

It doesn't take a degree from a prestigious business school or years of experience with a Fortune 500 company. All that matters is your willingness to make a change.  Change your perspective. Change your finances.  Change your life.  You can seize control or wait for someone, or something, else to come do it for you. Until then, you'll have to be content to play politics with your office peers, see less of your family and watch someone else drive our dream car, live in your dream house and retire on their terms.

If incredibly successful companies see the power of virtual franchising...like Japans, Pearl Vision and Eye Master, don't you think it's worth a look?

Article by: Success from Home September 2005
Liking It is Not a Requirement
By Jerry Clark

I once spoke with a gentleman who was a 54-year old Sales Manager f
or a major U.S. Computer Company. He had never been in
Network Marketing but was highly considering it for the first time.
He said, "Jerry, I was in London last month on a business trip.
A business associate over there gave me a magazine that was published in  the U.K.
and I saw an article you wrote in it. I didn't know who you
were but I read your article and really got a lot from it.
Then I heard you on a radio show when I got back to the U.S.,
and I thought that was  a sign that I should contact you. Over the past 25 years, at least a
dozen people have approached me about Network Marketing,
but I have never been able to see myself as a distributor."

I asked him what interested him about it now, and he said, "Retirement.
Based on my investment portfolio and my income I know I won't be able to
retire and continue to live the lifestyle that my wife and I are
accustomed to. And based on my research, it appears this thing I've been
avoiding all these years - Network Marketing - is our best chance to be
able to set ourselves up financially within the next 6-8 years. But I
just don't like doing the things that I've been hearing that I would
have to do in order to make it work."

I laughed and said, "Great! Welcome to the crowd."

He was puzzled.

I told him that one of the best parts about building a Network Marketing
business is the fact that you don't have to like it to do it. There was
silence on the phone and I knew he was confused so I continued.
I asked him how long he had been in the workforce. He said over 30 years.

I then made the following statement to him: "Are you telling me that
over the last 30 years you actually liked waking up in the morning to an
electronic rooster ringing in your ear? Did you like rushing in the
morning to get into traffic and breathe in the exhaust pipe fumes that
came from other cars? Did you like working with a bunch of negative
people who were constantly engaged in office politics? Did you like
being told when you could take a lunch break, take a vacation, how often
you could get sick, and how much money you were worth? Did you actually
like telling your four children that they couldn't get the toys they
wanted and deserved? Did you like telling your wife that you couldn't
take the vacation that you all deserved and desired? Did you like being
bossed around by someone who was less competent than you were?"

I went on a tangent for at least another minute or two with this type of
questioning. I finished by saying, "I didn't like a lot of what I had to
do, but I knew I wasn't going to like doing all that corporate stuff for
30 or 40 years either. So I figured if I was going to do something I
didn't like, I may as well do it for a shorter period of time. That's
why I chose Network Marketing.



"Today I'm a 32 year old guy who lives in a 7,000 sq. ft. home, travels
the equivalent of five trips around the world each year, associates with
positive, uplifting and pumped up people, and wakes up when I'm done
sleeping to a beautiful view of trees and the sounds of the waterfall
crashing down on my swimming pool. I figured if I was going to do
something I didn't like, I may as well do it for a shorter period of time.


"So my friend, you can go ahead and spend the next 6-8 years of your
life doing something you don't like and end up flat broke, or you can
spend the next 6-8 years of your life doing something you don't like and
set yourself up for life. Nevertheless, don't be surprised if you start
to not only like Network Marketing, but also love it. It's your life and
it's your choice."


By the time the call ended, the guy was in tears. I think he got the point.  To the top
