You can learn more from our asked questions
1) Why would a truck driver come to me to get him/her place with a company? Meaning, can’t they just go to a company themselves and apply?
Answer: This what we teach in the course. Drivers cannot go directly to a company or recruiter and expect to get the best options. The company or recruiter has to say they are the best or they would not stay or be in business long. The driver understands, and we teach that being a part of our network that is based on real true drivers in the seat and their feedback of jobs is in a non-biased approach.
When you join our Mastery Course, you will be a part of my driver network as well. The Drive United Group has helped more than 1.5 mil drivers, and we give them incentives to provide us with true feedback on the truck driving jobs in the USA.
2) Do I need a website, contracts, proposals, etc.? I can get a logo on Fiverr or Upwork as I have used both services in the past.
Answer: You will not need a website, contract, or proposals. When you activate my team to build your funnel, this will serve as a website designed to funnel a candidate through the process to get on your calendar.
You will need a logo and a short video of the job/jobs you plan to hire for. I show you how to set this up, and you can have someone on Fiverr to them for under $100 in most cases. We have a network of those contacts to use.
3) Do I need a payment processor? I believe you said you would be paying me directly, but I just wanted to make sure.
Answer: We pay agents by PayPal in most cases until they hit the average of 10 hires per month, and then we can make a direct deposit.
4) Do I need to set up an LLC / Corporation or do most people who come into this program just run everything under their own name and social security?
Answer: I would set one up and then apply for an S-corp form, but that is a question for your attorney in the course. We have other resources with Legal Zoom if you do not have an attorney in our course members area as well.
As you know, the write-offs alone you can do will benefit you when setting up the LLC.
5) Once a driver is placed with a company, do I get paid on that driver as a 1-time commission, or do you get paid some sort of residual every month as long as the driver stays with that company?
Answer: We set our clients up to be a one-time payment in most cases. We do not want to play the odds of getting paid the longer they stay. The industry is 98% turn-over, and a driver remains 2-3 months with a company on average. So, we deliver the qualified candidate and application, they pass the drug test, driving test, and physical to get their truck to push the gas pedal for the first time, and we get paid. They will pay within 7-10 days in most cases, and we pay instantly.
6) Does a driver need to have their own big rig truck, or they just need to be a licensed driver, and the company provides the truck?
Answer: both, but we focus on putting a driver into the company truck in most cases as it is a much easier process.
7) If I move forward with your program, besides the $10k fee for the program, are there any other hidden expenses that I need to know about? Do I need to pay for any automation software, etc., such as a CRM? I would like to have a breakdown of everything so I know what I am looking at going all into your program.
Answer: if you are scaling your agency, then you might decide to acquire software expenses down the road, but initially, we start every out with free platforms like google drive, docs, spreadsheets, emails, and skype. I have people that have run more than 50 man agencies off of free platforms.
I will help you with different options as you start scaling.
8) After I complete the course and get started trying to get my first driver, this is done through Facebook and Google Ads. How much money do I need for ad spend in my first month to acquire my first driver?
Answer: I have a special deal that the president of Jobs In Trucks does for my agents after completing the course. You can have full access to a massive database of drivers looking for jobs for $150 per month. If you have the capital to build a better marketing plan, you can use my agency to build out your funnels and connect all the pieces for no cost on the build, but it takes $297 per month to stay active in our team managing your ad accounts. We work primarily in FB ads, and on average, FB cost for a lead runs around $22, but the way we do it, it is usually under $5 per lead. So, on budget, after we test for a few days to see what cost average, you will know how much you need to spend to get the number of drivers you want. Example: $3 lead, and you want ten per day to pay $30 per day to get those leads.
9) Approximately how many drivers does the average person close from their first ad spend in their first month?
Answer: This all depends on what you decide to put the focus on. I will help you know what the hottest jobs will allow you to get paid the quickest. This is ongoing strategy updates.
10) How much money do I need to spend every month on ad spend? On the low end, I make a $1200 commission. I am assuming this $1200; I need to take a certain percentage and put it back into advertising; otherwise, I can’t get more drivers.
Answer: After a series of testing, we usually find that $20 per day is a great place to get, and then as you scale, you can scale that. Initially, we test a few ads at $3 per day until they tell us what we need to know.
On your commission, The average commission for you is $1200. I will show you a list of jobs for the commission I get, and then it shows you what you get. So, you get 70% of the commission I get, and when you hit 15 hires per month, it graduates to a 75% payout, and eventually, you can reach 80% of the original commission.
If using my client base when hiring, we stay at 80% because I have a support staff dedicated and hired for you. They are available 8-5 CST during corporate client hours.
11) Also, when did you start offering your course? Is it brand new, or have you had people purchase this course over the years? Has anyone failed at making any money from your course?
Answer: I have been training people 22 years from being one of the original people who build JB Hunt’s internal recruiting group. I then created my firm in which is the biggest in the US for brokering placements. The course you will get is the 3.0 version as I have put all my courses into one and added the ability to learn how to market like I do with my agency and in my clients in the trucking world.
12) Is it fairly easy or simple to get drivers for this type of business?
Answer: It’s not a get-rich overnight kind of business. It takes work and dedication. There is an art to how to do this, and if you follow my system, this can be very simple. The examples and testimonials I have are real true numbers, people, and stories. All walks have jumped in and been successful. Not to mention me being right there with you along the way adds a lot of value.
13) Is this business the same as being a Freight Broker?
Answer: No, freight brokering is negotiating a rate to be paid to get a load of goods from point A to B. This requires endless nights of hoping that driver or company you set up to do this shows. They don’t; you lose money.
We Broker the driver’s full-time placement to get in the truck’s seat for the trucking company. This is the most powerful part of the transportation business. They could have the best contracts to haul for and a thousand trucks, but without the driver, they have nothing. This is why we are rewarded very well.
The average trucking company with a truck sitting in the yard without a driver is losing $900-$3500 per day in revenue.
14) Can you confirm that once a driver signs up, my job is done, and your team takes care of the rest? Or is there more to it?
Answer: once a driver shows up to the orientation and passes the drug, physical, and driving test to get into their truck and hit the gas pedal, you get paid. We have nothing more to do with how the job goes after.
15) Do you have a breakdown of everything that I will get if I come into your program? Meaning, you will provide the exact funnels that are proven and working “today,” provide me with the VAs and the sales closers, etc. No stone left unturned. Completely turn-key. I don’t want to be guessing on how to do something and trying to figure things out.
Answer: Yes, I will show you how I have scaled the largest agency in the US. Every step, and if you come up with more, I will get it to you at no other cost.
Once you want VA’s, I will connect you with that resource, and I will have my team train them for you, so you do not have to mess with that part either.
16) How do I invoice?
Answer: All agents are to send their invoices to the company firstname.lastname@example.org
17) How do I find out what the commissions are?
Answer: You will go to the Simba 7 Strategies members area < Document and Resources module < Agent Commissions
18) What equipment do you recommend for my office?
Answer: This will depend on what kind of setup you are planning on working with. I usually have contractors that have their computers, and we set them up with a phone system on their computer. As you scale to a bigger group and decide to take on employees rather than contractors, we will then work on supplying everything.
19) At $150/month, what type of leads (quality, warm, etc.) do I get, and how many?
Answer: This is a database of drivers looking, and it is huge. You will have to speak with the president of Jobs In Trucks about the details. She takes care of anyone that is a part of our mastery course.
20) Do you pay for a VA to take your phone calls, or do you have them forwarded to your cell phone, or do you have a separate cell phone for business?
Answer: I have resources that I can introduce you to that will allow you to have quality VA’s that can do anything needed with data entry, applications, phone screening, etc. My team will show them the ropes, so you do not have to worry about that part.
21) I assume a vanity phone # would be more “eye-catching/professional”?
Answer: Assume you have a list of VA’s and their costs? We recommend Dialpad to start with. We can work with VA’s at around 1500-1600 per month full-time. We can get them part-time as well.
22) Do bandit signs attract callers, especially around truck stops?
Answer: The only way to go with this is digital. That is what will bring them in and save you time.
