When you first come on board as an Investment Advisor, you will start learning more about our industry before jumping into the job. First you will learn about the different types of online businesses available for sale on Empire Flippers. Then you will learn about EF Capital. You will become well versed in all of our processes, from how investments are structured down to intricacies of business acquisitions.
Once you have the basics down, you will use the phone, chat systems, and email to communicate with our customers and will have access to our backend support systems through HubSpot, Zendesk, and our custom software platform.
You might be wondering, though … what will your daily work routine really look like once you’re up and going?
Here is a list of daily tasks we’ll expect from you (not exhaustive and subject to change):
Take calls with potential operators and answering their questions on how we structure investment deals and how they can participate Call potential investors who have expressed interest in investing and guiding them to the next step in our sales funnel Return emails to potential operators or investors who are looking at using our platform, but still have questions about our process Work closely with our team to improve marketing based on your conversations with investors and operators Figure out ways to improve our existing process to make it a better experience for both investors and operators While no previous work experience is needed, experience in sales is a big plus. Any background in e-commerce or online business is also helpful. However, we are looking to train the right person, so if you don’t have that experience, don’t let it stop you from applying.
You must love talking with people. You need to be able to pick up the phone and call someone who doesn’t know you and see how they are doing. This isn’t cold-calling, everyone you call will have expressed some interest in working with EF Capital and have given out their phone number, so they will be familiar with the company. It is your task to make sure they understand our processes and see why we are someone they want to work with.
You can spot risks and opportunities. Every day, you will speak with investors and entrepreneurs about scaling businesses, liabilities, and how good certain assets are as an investment. Over time, you will need to be able to spot genuine risks and opportunities with online businesses. You will need to be able to confidently tell the entire story behind each potential investment opportunity. While investing in online businesses can bring great returns, it can also be a volatile space to play in.
We take a consultative approach with customers. We’re not trying to fit square pegs into round holes. We truly believe that the best sales experience includes transparency – which sometimes means letting the customer know why they shouldn’t do the deal. Having that confidence will allow you to be that much more effective and persuasive when the right customer is looking at the right deal.
Along those lines, we respect our audience’s intelligence by telling them about both the risks and rewards.
You’re a problem solver. Investing in these businesses can be a very important decision and a very intimate experience for entrepreneurs and operators on the other side of the deal. That means you will face obstacles and challenges. It will be up to you to make sure those challenges are met head-on and solved for all parties in the deal.
We typically require all new hires to work in-person with their manager for the first 3-6 months to get up to speed quickly and create a close knit group. After that, employees are free to live anywhere in the world. Due to COVID-19 and global travel restrictions, we are not making this a requirement. We will offer an optional 3-month in-person training in Medellin, Colombia with the EF Capital Manager. Again, attending this in-person training is optional and won’t be a hiring requirement.
Our company holds biannual meetups where we gather in a fun location and collaborate over the latest projects and ideas. The purpose of the meetup is team building – we make sure there are a variety of activities outside of company presentations and breakout sessions. Our meetups were on hold for 2020, but we plan to see each other again as soon as we can.
For the first 6 months, you will be paid $3,000 USD per month during the probation period. After 6 months, you will be gradually introduced to our compensation plan and will have paid, international healthcare coverage. Within 12 months, you can expect to be earning $50,000 – $60,000 USD per year depending on performance. With this being a new venture, there is a lot of opportunity to move into management roles with significantly higher pay.
