Hi Pam!

Personally, I find the training with Xpress superior to FAHT. Yes, they had good training. But the back office is much better with Xpress, I'm sitting on Skype right now randomly tossing questions out there and getting almost instant help, I can call someone anytime. It's amazing.

One of the chat groups on Skype is corporate. So you can talk to the company as well.

And the training is not particular to one team. Like tonight the team training call will have people from 3 different teams sharing ideas and support! Everyone really wants to see everyone else succeed, no matter who you're under or what team you're on. I'm on Team Gold Rush and am incredibly happy with that. I have not heard of any team though that has left anyone out to dry.

I don't want to cause problems, but sometimes you just don't always mesh with the person you first get in contact with, KWIM?
I definitely know what you mean. I felt the same way, but took the leap and ended up with who I feel like is a great leader with so much information to pass on and is always available to help. Most everyone here is always available. And a lot of the teams all communicate back and forth as well so its almost like being one huge team!

You can always contact your enroller for help. But the entire leadership team would be glad to help as well. I am a member of the leadership team, so feel free to contact me anytime.

The easiest way to contact any other member (your own "team" or not) is through skype. If you aren't yet a member, I suggest you download skype (skype.com). Once you join, we can add you to the skype group. Even the founders are in our group!

Like several others on this forum, I too was an Ameriplan FAHT member - for 6 years. After only 2 months with Xpress, I was earning more than I was when I left AP. I was in profit mode (earning enough to cover my monthly fee) in less than 3 weeks.

There are a couple huge differences between AP & Xpress. 1) Xpress has over a million providers nationwide; and 2) We operate nationwide - in ALL 50 states.

What I love most about Xpress is their amazing training and support. Their integrity is without question. One great example: A gentleman contacted our HQ with questions about joining as an ABO and bringing his team of 600 members with him. Corp could have just worked with him of course. Instead, they asked where he got the information about Xpress. When the gentleman said it was from an ad posted on craigslist, HQ suggested that he contact the person who posted the ad. I was wowed by that! I believe that any other company would have simply worked with the caller, and when he was ready, sign him directly to corp.

Since most of us signed sometime this year, we are all fairly new. Welcome to all! We are brilliant to have signed with this phenomenal company!
Thanks for the welcome!

Actually everyone on here is on my team already, and so is my sponsor.

So before you enroll through me link, I'd rather you email me first, so I can give you one of my team members links, so I can help them out as well and assign one as your sponsor - this way everyone benefits - and of course I will be supporting you as well as your sponsor, and everyone on the support team.
Now that's an awesome leader!

Default re: ABO enrollments

Yes,

I had a couple incidents where an ABO that should have enrolled under me, but went into someone else's site by accident, when they already opted into my site's autoresponder first. The enrollment was rightfully moved to the place where it should have been - ME!

So I give this company 2 thumbs up for their integrity! If you told the person about the opportunity, and they opt into your site, and go off somewhere else, and signup untintentionally on some other ABOs site, let the company know and they will rightfully fix it.

I admire that honesty in a company.

Charles & Julie,
I've been surfing the company's info and have been to several sites. I don't remember who's site I opted into first, but I am getting ready to sign under someone. I want to sign under someone whose personality I can work with easily.

That is the one thing I hate about opt in pages - If I am not ready to sign with anyone in particular, but I want information, I have to opt in to get that info. If I opt in to different pages, then when I decide I want to sign up with someone different than the first person I got info from, am I making trouble?

That is not my intention, but I like to contact different people and get a feel for whether we may mesh well or not before I sign up, see how they run their business, and then make my decision from there.

Having been on your side of the opt in page, I understand wanting the person to sign with the first person contacted, but I also understand them wanting to sign under a particular person or type of person.

So what do you suggest I do now? ('cause I'm feeling really guilty for contacting more than one person)

There's no need to feel guilty, we've all been in your position! I'm not sure what Charles and Julie would recommend but I'd say send a PM to a few people, possibly even give them a call. It's totally your choice and you're not going to step on any toes. My experience so far with with my team has been awesome, and I'm also getting to know others on the other teams straight up to the top dogs! The communication is like none other and I get the feel that everyone is here to help everyone!

I have to echo what the PP said! What is the point if you don't like the person you're working with? sure, you'll be on a team but fact is that person is still your main go to. We would all prefer to have people sign up under us if they opt in with us first. But the truth is, we'd rather you be under someone you can connect with and work well with so that you can be successful. Better to "shop around" and find someone you can click with than try to go around your upline because you don't. Been there, done that, it sucks!

I was one of the ones that heatwave had to get moved under him. I have no idea how I even ended up under someone else so I'm glad he was able to get me moved. I don't even know who it was I originally ended up under. If that happens, no problem moving someone. But nothing wrong with looking for that one you click with either.

Hi Pam,
I was a member of the FAHT team and did very well my first six months. But I had a family crisis and lost my momentum and was never able to get it back. I loved and respected my enroller and we still keep in touch but I became very disenchanted with the company after awhile. I just wasn't comfortable promoting them.
Xpress is very different. Their motto is "People above Profits" and that says a lot because they mean it.
They want to get a benefits plan into every home in America so their focus is not recruit, recruit, recruit.
The leaders listen to suggestions and ideas their ABOs (or as they call us "Partners") have and sometimes implement them immediately.
They encourage us to find our own niche - some of us are salesmen, some like to do fund raising or sell memberships to Groups, some of us market heavily online or some do local marketing. All the tools are there - we just decide what fits.
Will you make enough in 2 weeks to pay your fee? I don't know but the trial period is only $7.70 and you will see the great support, all the training offered, the back office and all the marketing tools that can only help you succeed.
Please take the tour, research until your eyes and brain hurt and then decide if it isn't worth it to stick around for the 2 week trial.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
Many blessings!

I can honestly say that this is a company where it would be more beneficial to go after memberships. Due to the low cost and overhead of running a business like Xpress, it's likely that you will have ABO's that may come and go if they can't make their initial investment back. Although I teach my team how to do so very quickly, most will not have this type of success due to lack of perserverence/bad information and training..and will quit. I saw this in Ameriplan as well. The memberships (and especially the group memberships) are by far the best way to go. You want to start with the right marketing methods and stay consistent. There are very few that truly know how to do this..I suggest you ask alot of questions and ask those people who you are interested in joining how much success they have had in terms of making their intital investment back and also strategy for achieving group members.

All the Best!
