Introduction: How Does Credit Repair Work?


Credit Repair works because of the law

The Fair Credit Reporting Act gives you the right to dispute any item on a credit report.  If the item cannot be verified, it must be removed.  This is the basis of all credit repair.

Credit Bureaus make a lot of mistakes

Nearly 8 out of 10 Credit Reports have errors!  Errors come off quickly, usually after 1 letter,  but even accurate items can often be removed. You just need to know the rules.

Step 1: 


Your client orders reports from all 3 bureaus; Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. The report imports into Credit Repair Cloud. Together you identify all the items you wish to dispute.

Step 2: 


Send a dispute letter to each of the 3 credit bureaus. Limit the letter to 5 dispute items (or fewer) within a 30 day period. 2-3 items is better. This is called Round 1.

Step 3:


A few weeks later, the bureaus send a letter explaining items that have either been corrected or verified.


Lather rinse repeat.

Repeat step 2 (this time with just 1 letter for each single item). If bureaus respond that the item was verified, send another letter demanding proof of verification, a signature, etc.  These letters are called Round 2, 3, 4, etc.

Over time negative items are corrected and the score goes up!  


Client is thrilled and keeps paying your monthly fee!

How do successful Credit Repair Companies make millions?

1) They give awesome service!

Part of giving awesome service is educating your clients, delivering what you promise and providing transparency to your work.  Credit Repair Cloud helps with all of this.  Just remember…

  • If you keep your existing “paying” clients happy…
  • And you add a few more clients each month…
  • Your revenue will grow LARGER every month.


2) They have “affiliates” who refer clients to them!

Affiliates are mortgage brokers, loan officers, realtors, CPA’s auto dealers and financial professionals who refer clients to you. Credit repair cloud has tools for requiting, managing and paying affiliates.

Now turn it all into a recurring-revenue business

This document gives an overview key steps. It’s meant to simplify the flow for someone just getting started. For additional videos

STEP 1: 

Your client orders online credit reports and scores from one of these  6 providers. Of those 6, PrivacyGuard works the best. They charge $1 for a trial with instant access to all 3 reports and scores (a real bargain). Just remind the client to cancel the free trial if ongoing credit monitoring is not wanted. However, credit monitoring is an awesome tool during credit repair to monitor the reports and scores over time. Just sayin’.

Next, import the credit report data into the software and choose a “reason” and “instructions” for each negative item:

STEP 2: Create credit dispute letters in the Dispute Wizard

STEP 3: Bureau sends a letter for each item to notify about changes. Update that item’s status in the software:

Later Rinse, Repeat! The actual Credit Repair “Work” is minimal.  It’s about 5 minutes of work per client per month.  Now lets turn it into a business.

Collect monthly recurring payments with ChargeBee


Credit Repair Cloud integrates with an amazing tool called ChargeBee. ChargeBee starts at $49 a month. It’s understandable that you wouldn’t want an extra expense, but ChargeBee is phenomenal at what it does.  You can enter the clients credit card information — or the client can signup with a credit card on your site and ChargeBee bills that client each month like clockwork. It sends invoices and receipts, it updates to the credit repair cloud accounting, it sends letters to clients telling them what to do when their credit cards fail, plus they send you awesome reports. ChargeBee does so much more.  We recommend ChargeBee for anyone running a Credit Repair Business.

ChargeBee works with most popular Merchant Gateways and you can try it free for one month if you sign up from within your Credit Repair Cloud. That tells ChargeBee that you need an account pre-configured for Credit Repair Cloud. Visit MY COMPANY>CHARGEBEE..

Setting up your Company Information

The MY COMPANY tab is where you add your company information that gets used in the other parts of the software, as well as in the Client and Affiliate Portal.  It’s also where you choose settings and preferences for the different parts of your software.

Assigning Roles and Permissions to Team Members

Creating an Online Agreement

You can set an online agreement for your clients to sign on their first visit to the client portal.  We have a default agreement already in your account. It has a document called “Authorization for Credit Repair Action” that most people use as limited power of attorney. Most people leave the default agreement as-is and only change the 1 paragraph about fees.

No worries. Add the negative items yourself in the Dispute Wizard. You don’t need to enter the entire report, just add the items you wish to dispute.

How to add or edit the library letters

Credit Repair Cloud comes with 100+ letters.  Most people use them as-is, but you can certainly modify them or add your own.

How to modify the automated notification emails that send to clients and affiliates

By default the automated notifications are generic and only send with the options you choose in your MY COMPANY tabs.  However, if you use our Mandrill Integration, you can modify them any way you like. Once you activate Mandrill in Credit Repair Cloud, all the emails will flow through your own Mandrill account, and Mandrill gives you awesome tools for monitoring delivery.  We recommend Mandrill even if you don’t want to change the letters. Mandrill is awesome and a free Mandrill account lets you send up to 12,000 emails a month for free. There is no downside to Mandrill. Just do it!
