Getting a lovely testimonial from referrers and clients is SO rewarding for any company and their team.
Our team at Credit Fix Solutions strive to offer the best customer service experience.
We go above and beyond to serve our referral partners and clients.
That being said, it’s not often that people spend the time to send across their thanks.
Often we fix people’s credit reports and they never say thank you.
In some cases, we fix their reports and they never even pay our fees!
It can sometimes be a thankless job in credit repair!
However, every now and then you come across a generous member of your community who is happy to give back and share some kind words about their experience with you.
In this case, it was the lovely Sherin Strachan, an amazing finance broker, Director of Australian Loans & Finance Group, who was kind enough to share her feedback with us.
Sherin wrote the following email to our team recently and she was kind enough to approve us to share her feedback as an online testimonial:
“I’d like to share a story of a very positive experience I’ve had with Marianna and the Credit Fix team with you.
I first saw Marianna in a Choice PD video session.
I contacted her on Monday 19 October to confirm the process for referrals, Credit Fix requirements and informed her of a client of mine I’d referred to the 1800 number. Marianna was friendly, informative, professional and answered all queries thoroughly. She promised to contact my client, locate my client’s file and keep me updated on the file progress.
3 hrs later I receive an email from the Credit Fix team advising of file progress.
Today, less than 3 days later, I’m advised of the removal of the default on my client’s credit file! Wow! What an amazing team and experience for my client and I – we are delighted!
I’ll be confidently referring any clients requiring assistance with their credit file to Marianna and the Credit Fix team.”
Marianna was beaming at the kind words that Sherin shared with our team.
Getting feedback is so important for all of us when it comes to our work.
It boosts morale and helps us deal with the not so appreciative people….and there’s always a few of those.
Thank you Sherin for the wonderful feedback and we look forward to assisting your clients again in the future.

How I connected with over 15,000 relevant connections on LinkedIn
Networking is a critical part of lead generation for many businesses and consistency is the key when making connections on LinkedIn, according to Victoria Coster, author of From Zero to CEO.
When I started my business from my son’s bedroom I hadn’t even started networking but I knew it was something that wouldn’t cost money, just time.
If you connect with 10 people a week at events, that’s 40 people you can potentially do business with every month.
That’s 120 people in the first three months.
This is how I grew my business!
I joined local business groups, created relationships, met with the same people on a regular basis.
Later, I turned my attention to online and largely LinkedIn.
I set myself a target to add at least 20 relevant people my LinkedIn profile every day.
I searched people who I thought would be interested in our services, and I added them.
Every day I added 20-40 people in the finance sector in Australia.
Sometimes I did this while queuing at the supermarket checkout.
Other times I did it watching crap on TV in the evenings.
It’s so easy, but the secret is to do this consistently, every day.
Then you send a private message to whoever connects and suggest you catch up for a coffee
(at their office, or a local coffee shop is fine) and start building a relationship.
I now have more than 15,000 relevant connections on LinkedIn!!
ALL relevant to our services at Credit Fix Solutions – and I started with ZERO.
There is no secret to building your connections.
Just consistently add people every day and then send them messages via LinkedIn to catch up.
Yes, consistency is the key when sending messages out on LinkedIn, keep connecting with 20 new people a day – don’t stop!
When you meet with people in person, make sure that you are adding value to their business or the meeting in general.
Also ensure that you start commenting and liking posts from your connections on LinkedIn and join relevant LinkedIn groups and start commenting and creating posts on a regular basis.
This will help establish yourself as a ‘go-to’ person in your industry.
It will keep you front of mind for your online audience.
On average, I get around two to five leads per week just from LinkedIn.
It’s taken me five years to grow my connections to 15,000 but it has been something that has really attributed to the success of my business.

From Zero to CEO: how to start a home business, step by step guide
Frustrated that there were no holistic guides to starting a home business, Victoria Coster CEO of national credit repair company, Credit Fix Solutions decided to write her own.
Victoria has put all her learning and skills together from starting her own business as a struggling single mother with no business skills, to create a hands-on step by step guide to starting a business from home, in From Zero to CEO.
The housing commission mother, turned award-winning business woman, even encourages you to stop at stages through throughout the book and action what she has taught. By the end of it, you should be running a successful small business from home.
“This is not meant as a guide to running a large business or earning millions of dollars – although it does give you the bones to create a structure that could!” Victoria said.
“It’s meant for those of you who maybe have young kids to look after, or have been through a life event that means you need to work from home or, for whatever reason, you just want to start and run your own micro business from home to give you the time and flexibility to live a happy life.”
From Zero to CEO takes you from working on yourself, to getting started, finding your target customers, setting up systems and social media, networking right through to making sure your business is compliant.
From Zero to CEO is available for purchase at Amazon in print or ebook format.

Most consumers aren’t aware of the effect of just 1 failed enquiry on your credit report.
Our credit scores range from 0 to 1200.
BUT most people’s credit scores only sit at around 700.
That’s only around 200 points away from a bad credit score.
What contributes to my credit score?
Your credit report contents contribute to the calculation of your credit score.
Credit reports contain information such as when you have applied for finance.
Also, if you have defaulted on a loan, eg a credit card or missed any monthly repayments.
When you enquire for finance, a Lender accesses your credit report.
This access translates to an enquiry into your credit history.
This enquiry on your credit report then impacts your credit score.
How much can an enquiry drop my score by?
Just 1 failed home loan or credit card enquiry could drop your score by up to 200 points.

Our previous client John had a credit card default on his credit report.
We spent a few weeks advocating on his behalf to remove the default.
Our lawyers, Credit Fix Lawyers, found that the default was listed in error.
Once they removed it, we checked John’s score and it had increased from 480 to 600.
John was now able to go for the home loan he wanted with a very low interest rate.
However, instead of using a finance broker, John went online to apply.
He applied once, and his score dropped back down to 480!
We suggest that you use a local accredited finance broker BEFORE you apply for any type of finance.
A finance broker will look at your best options before they submit anything to a Lender.
This will protect your credit report and therefore your credit score from being damaged.
Your credit report is easily damaged by enquiries.
Call our team on 1300 43 65 69 to discuss our free consultations on your credit report.
We offer no result no fee credit repair Australia wide for most cases.
