Good afternoon all,
Just wanted to say hello and offer my thought's on Elite's "Insurance Restoration Sales Training" platform. As the founder, course instructor and owner of Elite Consulting Pro...I believe that I can speak freely from a point of authority and experience, on what the program has to offer.
Since launching in December of 2011 Elite has:
*Trained and certified over 100 Dallas/Ft. Worth restoration companies on the most effective and profitable way to achieve lasting success in this business
*Experienced contractors flying in from all over the United States to attend our training events
*Trained and certified 100's of independent restoration salespeople, across the US, on the "total sales approach process" to selling the restoration job
*Received 100's of positive "Contractor testimonials" detailing the effectiveness of our proprietary sales training system
*Amassed multiple "letters of recommendation" from satisfied contractor course attendees found on our website
*Received 55 "Recommendations" on our LinkedIn profile page, just search "Jacob Krahl"
*Received recognition and praise from local shingle material supply stores and national shingle manufacturer's
*Conducted numerous "Lunch-n-Learn's" for restoration contractors, at local material distribution centers...free of charge
*Provided substantial financial support to the Preston Trail Community Church (located in Frisco, TX) building fund, dedicated to bringing "one more life" into The Kingdom...Just Google "Preston Trail Community Church, One More Life."
I am passionate about training contractors on the most profitable way to ethically navigate this business...and take high offense to those who wishing to discredit my approach with the intent of tarnishing Elite's brand.
I would like to address LMB at this time. I consider it a personal insult that you speak negatively about my course, especially since you've never even attended. I find your comments "an act of sheer folly." It seems that you have a motivated interest in discrediting my efforts...Oh, that's right...you do! It's abundantly evident to me that you are attempting to discredit Elite so that unsuspecting roofers will be persuaded to "kick the tires" on your "sales training" program, 3RS Profit Max??? Just because you've been in the industry since 1970 does not qualify you as an "industry expert" or speak of your effectiveness in training, motivating and inspiring greatness. Credibility is everything.
I reference "LMB's" following comments:
LMB- "Ten years is not a lot of time and much of what is taught appears to be basic retail remodel company sales training"
JK- LMB, I've had the joy of training restoration sales people, across the US...in every major market for over a decade. My documented sales training experience spans the entire Midwest (Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Colorado, just off the top of my head). I take a lot of pride in knowing that I've helped 100's of reps across the country achieve financial success in this industry.
JK- Furthermore, I have no idea where you came up with "what is taught appears to be basic retail remodel sales training." "Retail sales" appears nowhere on my website, my course outline, or about us page. This course has NOTHING to do with bidding jobs in a retail sales environment...You need only to look at my homepage to find the text in BIG BOLD letters "Insurance Restoration Sales Training," this is what I specialize in...and I am an expert in this discipline.
LMB- "Since insurance repair work is not really a sales based prospect (your goal is not to "outsell your competition", your goal is to get the claims fully paid which means knowing how to go head to head with insurance adjusters and win)"
JK- So, LMB...I guess your experience, dating back to the 70's...tells you that "insurance repair work" does not even have to be sold to the homeowner? Because, "gaw-leehhh" who even has to SELL an INSURANCE JOB...All you got to do is "go head to head with insurance adjusters and win." Your preceding comments are negligent, careless at best...
JK- You MUST convince (SELL) the homeowner that you are an expert in your field, have their best interest at heart, have a genuine concern to restoring their home to whole again, etc....before you ever even have the opportunity to "go head to head with their insurance company."
JK- I must say I'm a little disappointed LMB...with your thoughtless words, stemming from a man whose professional "restoration career" dates back to the Nixon administration (1970)...
LMB- "the best sales training in the world will still leave one lacking in the real fundamentals of going up against P&C ins companies and winning which is where the real money is going to be made."
JK- Thanks LMB. You've made me out to be more of a genius than I already am. First off, I'm a licensed adjuster and have been for years...If you had done your due diligence on my company...and actually requested a "full course-outline" you'd be armed with the necessary information required to intelligently comment in a forum such as this.
JK- Reflecting back to speaking from a point of authority (strength)...I can advise you that the "insurance claim negotiation process" is covered in my course, down to the most minute detail. Thanks for playing, next???
LMB- "Sounds like a decent course for someone looking for some general to advanced sales training that will be more helpful on retail work as well as some basic insurance claim 101 help though"
JK- Nice. Thanks LMB, seems like an "under-handed endorsement of my course"..."decent course, for someone looking for general sales training...more helpful on retail work...some basic insurance claim 101 help"....I can only infer that your closing remarks left you with comfort, thinking that contractors would line up in droves to purchase (2) "3RS Profit Max" CD's off your website...
In closing, I would like to thank you LMB. You've amplified my abundant, overwhelming self confidence, and have further propelled my passion to effect positive change in this industry...Please take my parting words to comfort you in your sleep.
Trolling on roofing forms, attempting to discredit those making positive change in this industry, while propping yourself up as an expert is not the road for you...You can do better. I'm sure of this.
