By purchasing access to and becoming a member of the Investor Machine Lead Generation System and Community, you agree to be bound by this Agreement. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS, YOU SHOULD NOT PURCHASE ACCESS OR BECOME A MEMBER OF THIS PROGRAM.
In these terms and conditions, "We/Us/Our" means REI Success Partners, LLC dba Investor Machine. "You/Your" means you as a user, member or customer of our services.
The Investor Machine Lead Generation program is a cutting edge lead generation system that focuses on using 'data first' to attempt to identify sellers that are most likely to sell in the near future. We use many proprietary methods to attempt to identify these sellers, but many factors come into play with all advertising. We also request the input of our members to help shape the focus of our data analysis to meet their interests, such as geographic preferences, preferred property values and types, etc., to ensure our members advertising spend is as focused as possible.
We own the data, and use it to manage your direct mail as a ‘done for you’ service, but we will NOT provide you with the data, and will NOT allow you to use our data to mail on your own through another provider, or skip trace through another provider. We do NOT “sell lists”. We will however, provide you the names and property addresses of records that you skip trace through us.
Further, we provide a world class community for members to learn and grow together and host regular online events/meetings.
TERRITORY OR MARKET
As a member of Investor Machine, you will be assigned to a 'Market'. For us, a Market is defined as a US County, other than the following counties: Los Angeles County CA, Cook County IL, Harris County TX, Maricopa County AZ. These counties have been divided into multiple Markets. If you are interested in one of these Counties, please talk to one of our representatives for additional information and definition of each market.
We've further defined Counties into "Major Counties" (population of >500,000), "Minor Counties" (200,000 - 500,000 population), and “Micro Counties” (population <200,000) based off US Census data. We reserve the right to change how we define these counties as we see fit.
As a Member of Investor Machine, you may add additional 'Markets', for a fee.
In the event you'd like to CHANGE your markets, a fee will apply to make this change, and we may or may not allow the addition or change, depending on availability.
MEMBERSHIP IN A MARKET IS NOT EXCLUSIVE. We generally limit the number of actively advertising members to one per 200,000 population (example: 0-200,000 = 1 member, 200,001-400,000 = 2 members, etc.), but reserve the right to change this limitation at any time (higher or lower). Our goal is to maximize 'membership wide' performance in each market we operate in. Despite these limitations, we do not provide exclusivity of markets to any member. Note that we do NOT limit the number of members for Micro Markets.
The expectation is that you will be consistently advertising in your paid markets each month. In the event that you decide NOT to advertise in market in a single month, or you're spending less than the minimum amount required per month, you understand that we may resell your paid market to a new member, and you may lose your paid market with no reimbursements or refunds paid to you in anyway.
Investor Machine charges several fees to become a member and participate in the program. DO NOT PURCHASE MEMBERSHIP if you have any questions at all regarding the fees below! Contact your Sales or Account Representative with any questions. We charge the following fees:
1. Initial Join Fee – This is a one-time fee to join the program and become a member. First payment through Stripe. Includes one market.
In some instances, we may offer a payment plan for the Initial Membership Fee at a higher total price. If you choose to pay on terms over time, you agree that all payments must be paid in full, even if you decide to leave the Program prior to the end of the payment schedule.
2. Additional Market Fees – If you want to advertise in more than one market, you have the option to add additional markets for a one-time, per additional market fee. Pricing is contingent on the availability and size of the market (e.g Major or Minor county.) Contact your Sales or Account Representative for more details if you are interested in adding additional markets.
Advertising Management Fees – These are fees for us to manage your advertising budgets, place orders with our vendors on your behalf to fulfill your advertising order, graphic design, proof management and strategic account reviews. You will be invoiced monthly for these fees and payments are submitted only through our secure online payment portal. You are responsible for ongoing management fees EVEN IF YOU DECIDE TO NOT ADVERTISE DURING A GIVEN PERIOD. Advertising management fees are due for each of your paid markets until you've cancelled your membership, even if you stop advertising for one or more months. See Cancellation Policy for more details.
3. Advertising Budgets – This is the amount that you designate to spend in each of your markets, on certain type of advertising. Currently, we offer direct mail and skip trace advertising. Advertising spend isn't required in each market every month, but you do have monthly minimums. Check with your Account Representative on the required minimums you must spend to advertise in a market. Pricing for direct mail and skip trace products includes the cost of our data and can be found in our Member Portal and can change without notice, as product pricing is highly dependent on our supplier fees, including postage and paper costs. We reserve the right to change our pricing at any time, due to adjustments in vendor market rates.
4. Other Optional Products and Service Fees – These include other service fees like our Weekly Hot Sheet Monthly Fees, Weekly Hot Sheet Record Fees, as well as Late Fees and Budget Transfer Fees, which are fees to process moving a paid budget to a future month.
OUR PAYMENT POLICY
Payment for Initial Join Fees, Additional Market Fees as well as a special, one time orders made through our online store and are due and payable up front.
All other fees for monthly recurring orders, including Advertising Management Fees, Advertising Budgets, Initial Join Fees (on payment plan) and Other Optional Products and Service Fees are invoiced monthly and can be paid through our secure, online payment portal. Payment must be received in full and up front, prior to us fulfilling any order.
Invoices are sent by email around the 25th of each month and are due and payable on the 1st of the following month, even if that day falls on a weekend or holiday. Refer to the Key Dates section for more details on the timing of invoicing and fulfillment of each monthly order. You can pay via ACH bank draft (“e-payment”) or credit card through our secure payment portal. ePayments are free to process, but a 3% credit card processing fee will be charged and added to all outstanding amounts due that are paid for with a credit card.
You understand that any Late Fees, Initial Join Fees, Advertising Management Fees or other fees owed to us will be applied first to any payments we receive from you, with any remaining balance left over being applied to your Advertising Budgets.
Late invoices will be assessed a 10% late fee on the total outstanding amount, up to a maximum of $1,000 on the 5th day past the invoice due date. Any invoices more than 15 days PAST DUE will have the Advertising Budgets CANCELLED and member’s advertising orders WILL NOT BE FULFILLED. However, all other charges, including Initial Join Fees (on a payment plan), Advertising Management Fees, Weekly Hot Sheet Record Fees for those records that have been delivered, and Late Fees will still be due and payable.
To keep costs down and efficiently manage your advertising orders, it’s critical that you understand and follow the deadlines stated below, as not following will cause significant operational challenges and delays to the fulfillment of your advertising order.
WE OPERATE ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT YOUR LAST MONTH’S ADVERTISING BUDGETS AND MARKETS WILL BE THE SAME AS YOUR NEXT MONTH’S ADVERTISING BUDGETS AND MARKETS, UNLESS NOTIFIED BY YOU BY THE DEADLINE (20th OF THE MONTH).
Changes to your membership, markets, advertising budgets and add on services like weekly hot sheets must be requested through our support ticket form on our membership portal by the deadline defined in the Key Dates section.
To cancel your Investor Machine membership, you must submit your request in writing, by submitting a support ticket through our Member Portal.
Cancelling Recurring Monthly Advertising Orders
If you wish to cancel your ongoing monthly Advertising Budgets for direct mail, skip trace, or weekly hot sheet service, you must do so by submitting a request in writing through our Member Portal PRIOR TO THE DEADLINE.
We reserve the right to approve or deny any order cancellation requests received past the deadline and for orders where we have already received payment and started processing fulfillment of the order. WE WILL NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES HONOR ANY REQUESTS TO CANCEL IF:
• we have already fulfilled the order and delivered hot sheet records and skip trace records to you via email;
• we have already fulfilled the order by placing your direct mail to the print house for mailing; or
• we have already started the process of fulfilling any part of your order and/or have already submitted orders on your behalf, to our vendors.
ANY INCURRED ADVERTISING MANAGEMENT FEES, INITIAL JOIN FEE PAYMENT PLAN FEES, WEEKLY HOT SHEET MONTHLY FEES, WEEKLY HOT SHEET RECORD FEES AND LATE FEES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN PAID WILL NOT BE REFUNDED.
If your request to cancel all or a part of your advertising order for direct mail and skip trace is approved for cancellation, you will receive a credit for the amount of the advertising budget (direct mail and skip trace) less a $250 budget transfer fee, to apply to a future month. WE DO NOT ISSUE REFUNDS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES FOR ADVERTISING BUDGETS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN PAID FOR.
There are NO REFUNDS OF ANY PAID ADVERTISING BUDGETS OR FEES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Any advertising orders paid for will be placed as agreed, unless requested to cancel per our Cancellation Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH OR UNDERSTAND THIS POLICY, YOU SHOULD NOT PURCHASE OR BECOME A MEMBER OF THIS PROGRAM.
