Effective on Friday, March 1, there will be a price increase for the Big Biller software for members of Top Echelon Network.

The Big Biller software is listed on your Network invoice as “online software fee.” Below is new pricing structure for Network member agencies that use Big Biller.

Updated Pricing (March 1, 2019)
$60 per month for the first user and $40 per month for each additional user

Keep in mind that this price increase is for the Big Biller software only. It is NOT for Top Echelon Network. The membership dues for Top Echelon Network will remain the same: $130 per month.

This is the first time in nearly eight years that we’ve raised the price of Big Biller for Network member agencies. That’s because we believe in keeping the prices of our tools and services as affordable as possible.

Please note that you can take advantage of the annual billing option for Big Biller. This represents the best value for pricing. With the annual plan, the cost of the software is $55 per month for the first user and $30 per month for each additional user. Advanced payment is required to receive the annual billing rate.

On March 1, there will also be a change regarding disk space pricing. Network member agencies that use Big Biller will receive substantially more storage.

At the present time, your agency currently 1GB of space and are charged $15 for each additional 250MB over 1GB.

With the new pricing, your agency will receive 25GB of disk space storage and will only be charged $10 for each additional 1GB over 25GB.

Once again, this price change is for the Big Biller software only. It is NOT for Top Echelon Network. The membership dues for Top Echelon Network will remain $130 per month.

As always, we appreciate your business. Our mission is to help you make more placements and our goal is to serve you in the continual improvement of our software and our services.

Let’s make this short and sweet: Early Bird Registration for the 2019 Top Echelon National Convention in New Orleans is ending soon!

How soon? How about February 9 soon?

That’s right, you have between now and then to register for the Early Bird price of just $449 per person.

However, if you do NOT sign up before February 9, the price goes up. That means if you register after that date, you’ll have to pay the Regular Registration price of $549 per person.

As mentioned when we announced the National Convention, industry speaker Jon Bartos of Global Performance Search will be keynote speaker for the event. Jon will be part of three sessions in New Orleans. The titles of those sessions, along with the description for each, are listed below:

“Increasing Your Marketing Effectiveness”

Learn critical marketing topics to achieve higher levels of success. Attendees will walk away with:

  • Customized scripts
  • Skills to Implement when you get back to the office
  • Understanding why marketing is less effective today
  • Developing your Zebra, Value Proposition and USP
  • Why the right direct response marketing just works today and how to use it in conjunction with your marketing strategy
  • Critical questions that need to be asked and answered in order to ensure you are working on the right searches
  • And much more!

“Increase Your Recruiting Effectiveness”

“The Art of Closing Every Deal”

On October, 19, 1999, Jon had seven offers go out . . . and had all seven offers declined. From that day forward, he made a pact to never let that happen again! Attendees will lean how to stop losing deals due to:

  • Clients choosing other candidates
  • Candidates turning down the offers
  • Candidates accepting counter-offers

Attendees will learn the details of Jon’s five-step process for closing every deal:

  1. Qualifying
  2. Setting expectations
  3. Re-qualifying
  4. Pre-closing
  5. Closing
