The problem I constantly ran into was that the providers listed on Ameriplan's sites did not even know what Ameriplan was when any of my prospective members contacted them. If they did know they did not educate their staff. I would call the offices myself and get the same answers. This was not much of a confidence booster for me as a new IBO, let alone to help me promote Ameriplans' services and feel confident erolling others.
I am a very honest person and I wanted to be sure that people were going to get what they expected from these services. It made it virtually impossible to enroll members when the provider offices couldn't even verify that they were providers. Many said they had no idea how they got on our list.
In contacting them I made sure that I used all the correct names for the various services; Coast to Coast for Vision, Medco for Pharmacy, Beech Street Network for the Doctors as well as Ameriplan and yet almost every office I contacted did not even know who we were, let alone what discounts the members could expect. I spent countless hours trying to figure out why this was so, to no avail.
I spent lots of time, money and energy on this business trying to be totally honest with my clients which was my downfall. I found it very difficult ethically to try to enroll others in a business which I found to be almost impossible to get off the ground myself. I did the free postcard leads, I ran numerous ads in the paper and online, I distributed flyers all over my area.
I even ordered a magnetic sign for my car which arrived just a week before I finally decided to get out of this business. The problem came right down to the fact that when contacted the providers listed in our area did not even know who we were. I know that there are people in this company making money, but I would like to have a report of the statistics of how many like me work hard and get no where.
I am not bitter, just wiser now. I would caution anyone to really check things out carefully before signing on with Ameriplan. My son in law tried to talk me out of it and I sure wish I had listened to him.
