The SmartStart Commitment

Advisors who went through the SmartStart program completed 210% more reports, providing additional opportunities to turn a business owner into a client. As for engagements, SmartStart participants saw 280% more engagements, which is directly related to the return on their investment in their first year. SmartStart graduates converted one in nine reports into engagements.

For those clients enrolled in the system through an advisor who did not go through SmartStart, they were only able to complete an average of 62 activities inside of the platform. By contrast, SmartStart-trained advisors made a much bigger impact with an average of 364 client activities completed, leading to a boost in their Value Builder Score. This directly demonstrates the active engagement advisors see from their clients.

What Our Certified Value Builder™ Advisors Are Saying

SmartStart is fantastic for so many reasons. It is a sound, practical, and flexible solution for a common and stubborn (and expensive) problem. The training is top-notch, including all the research, and especially the (new) training. The structure is fantastic and applicable from day 1. I was able to integrate Value Builder into my practice really quickly and effectively.

—Bill Hurtson,
Certified Value Builder™ Class of 2020

The most valuable training program I have been involved in, by a significant margin. The structure of the program was well-thought-out, and the process and implementation guides provided were clearly laid out allowing me to quickly apply the skills learned in the training to my coaching business to begin making sales. SmartStart is the complete package.

—Chris Mitchell,
Certified Value Builder™ Class of 2020

This real-time collaboration has worked very nicely and has been extremely helpful to get me going. In fact, my first mastermind group priced at $1,000 each for 8 business owners filled up quickly. My ability to create and introduce this program within 2 weeks is due to my Customer Success Manager's guidance.

—David Oyadomari,
Certified Value Builder™ class of 2020

The Value Builder System™ is a great system which is clearly developed over time based on real world experience across a large number of advisers and businesses. A systematic and highly professional process which allows for interaction and engagement and records all key actions taken and those to be taken.

—Gary White,
Certified Value Builder™ class of 2020

The quality of The Value Builder System™ and the platform are amazing. The whole experience so far has been positive, and the training and resources are top-notch. It’s incredible how well it all fits together with my business. There is a logical progression to integrating Value Builder into my practice. You've thought of everything.

—James Bosma,
Certified Value Builder™ Class of 2020

In all the training I have received, this stands above the rest and felt more like an internship then a training program. This program, with its hands-on learning approach, allowed me to employ and integrate the skills learned and the tips and tools provided in my practice, with great results almost immediately. There is nothing SmartStart doesn’t cover, from building out your pricing menu to how to sell an engagement, I walked away from this training a more competent and confident leader.
