Terms and Conditions for the Investor Machine

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Terms and Conditions for the Investor Machine Lead Generation System and Community.

INTRODUCTION

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. "You/Your" means you as a user, member or customer of our services.

INVESTOR MACHINE

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 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.

PAYMENT POLICY 

Payment is required (initial membership fee) to start the program. On an ongoing basis, there are monthly management fees (based on the number of Markets you have purchased a membership in). You agree that by purchasing a membership, you understand these fees completely by speaking with your sales representative, and agree to NOT PURCHASE MEMBERSHIP if you have any questions at all regarding the fees below.

1. Initial Membership Fee (for 1 Market) – One Time Fee
2. Additional Market(s) Membership Fee – Optional One Time Fee, per Market
3. Management Fee – Monthly, based on # of Markets you have membership in
4. Advertising Expenses – Your monthly advertising fees
5. Other Optional Products and Services

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 in the event that you decide to leave the Program prior to the end of the payment schedule.

Further, you understand that that you are responsible for ongoing management fees EVEN IF YOU DO NOT ADVERTISE DURING A GIVEN PERIOD. Advertising spend isn't required every month (should you choose to not advertise), but you are responsible for paying management fees for each market you're a member of until you've cancelled your membership, even if you stop advertising for one or more months.

Ongoing Advertising and management fees are due by the first calendar day of each month, even if that day is a weekend or holiday. Payment options exist to pay (other than initial membership and/or adding additional counties as membership) via ACH bank draft (preferred), or via credit card payment. If payment is made via credit card, there is an additional 3% charge to cover processing fees. You understand that any Membership Fees or other fees owed to us will be deducted from any advertising payments you market to satisfy those issues first, with the balance going towards your advertising expenses.

Advertising payments are late if not paid by the 5th of the month prior, and will be assessed a 10% late fee at that point. Any advertising orders not paid by the 15th of the month prior will be cancelled completely, though management fees will not be waived.

You may change your previously agreed to advertising plan (budget or creative work) if request change through our membership portal, between the 1st and the 20th day of the month PRIOR to invoices being sent. You are not allowed to change your budget or invoices after that point, only cancel the order in full (not including management fees). Once advertising fees and management fees are paid, there are no refunds in any way, even if you choose to cancel any or all of the in-process order. We make no guarantees to even being able to stop any in-process orders after it's been started.

Key Dates

To keep costs down and efficiently manage your advertising, it’s critical that you understand and follow Key production dates, as not following, causes significant operational challenges. These dates include:

1st of the Month: All advertising payments are due in full for the period that begins the following month

5th of the Month: Any advertising payments not paid at this point will be charged a 10% late fee, and risk order cancellation (management fees may not be cancelled).

15th of the Month: Any advertising payments not paid at this point will result in a cancelled order. Management fees + 10% late fee will still be due.

20th of the Month: Last day to finalize Budget changes for the advertising period that will begin in approximately 40 days.

20th of the Month: Last day to change creative work (changes to post cards, letters, etc.), for the period that begins in approximately 10 days.

***Note: As of the 21st of the Month, if you have NOT approved your mail creative/proofs for the advertising beginning in approximately 10 days, YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY USE YOUR CREATIVE/PROOFS FROM THE MOST RECENT ADVERTISING PERIOD, AND HOLD US HARMLESS FOR ANY ISSUES THAT MAY ARRIVE FROM THIS DECISION. Best course of action is to simply approve your creative work prior to the 20th of each month.

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.

OTHER COMPENSATION

You understand that we will share other products and services with you, and will in some instances, be compensated if you purchase that product or service. These products and services are generally limited to things that can help you in your business, and are optional to you.

EARNINGS DISCLAIMER

You understand that we make NO GUARANTEE as to the performance of our lead generation services. We will assist in creating your strategic marketing plan, and help execute those plans, but make no promises or guarantees that our actions will generate leads, or allow you to generate revenue or profits.

We discuss financial matters and business improvement ideas frequently in this group, but we make no guarantees that the ideas or strategies discussed at meetings will work for you explicitly. Everyone in this group is a mature business owner, and implements anything they learn or hear at these meetings or within this group at their own risk.

YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE ANY OF THE KNOWLEDGE, RELATIONSHIPS OR ADVICE, AS WELL AS OUR INVESTOR MACHINE ADVERTISING SERVICES IS AT YOUR OWN SOLE RISK.

You understand that real estate investing is a risky business, and many that try to become successful are not. You understand that you alone are responsible for your success in life and in business, and understand that success varies based on your skills, knowledge ability, dedication, network, financial situation, and even some luck. You also understand that any testimonials or endorsements by our customers or audience represented on our programs, websites, advertisements, content, landing pages, sales pages or offerings have not been scientifically evaluated and that results experienced by individuals may vary. Any statements made on any of our online or offline properties or anyone in our company, or by our advisors or customers are simply opinions and not guarantees or promises of actual performance.
