As you know, the ECA (E-Commerce Associates) program is off to a fantastic start. Over 800 companies have applied to become ECAs so far and nearly 2000 products have been added to TC already...and this is just the tip of the iceberg!
To support and promote all this wonderful, new e-commerce, we are announcing today the TripleClicks Booster Club.
The fact is, SFI's success, and your success as an SFI affiliate, is tied directly to the success of TripleClicks (TC). The more successful TC is, the more successful SFI's affiliates will be. In short, SFI goes as TC goes!
A popular and successful TC means:
• Easier sponsoring of SFI affiliates
• Easier referrals of TC members
• More and better ECAs
• More products & services
• Better prices
• Lower shipping costs
• and MORE
The TC Booster Club is designed to make sure we maximize these great benefits and we utilize our "strength in numbers" at all times to grow SFI...by growing TC!
But guess what? The above goodies are only just SOME of the benefits of the TC Booster Club. As a TC Booster, you also get:
• Special product offers and sales available to TC Boosters only
• An additional 5% off the regular price of the Deal Of The Day
• Special recognition
• Access to deeply discounted Booster-only closeouts
• 100 free VersaPoints every month
• and MORE to come!
Becoming a TC Booster is quick and easy. Simply agree to the following four pledges and you're in:
1. To always shop TC first for products and services you want to buy for yourself and others (gifts)
2. To make at least one purchase from TC every month
3. To encourage all of your personally sponsored affiliates to become TC Boosters
4. To promote TC to non-affiliates to the best of your ability>>> SIGN THE PLEDGE & JOIN THE CLUB HERE <<<
If we all work together,TC can become one of THE most popular destinations on the Web. There's no reason why we can't someday compete with the biggest online brands in the world and create thousands of incredibly wealthy SFI affiliates. And there's also no reason why YOU can't be one of them.
But to make it happen, it has to be a company-wide TEAM EFFORT! Sitting on the sidelines and hoping everyone else joins doesn't cut it. Instead, everyone needs to lead by example and become a TC Booster. The more affiliates who join the club, the bigger TC will become, and the faster commission checks will rise!
Speaking of leading by example, as soon as you've met the club qualifications, we'll add a little "TCBC" flag beside your name in the top right corner of the Affiliate Center. All of your PSAs (personally sponsored affiliates) will also see this flag beside their sponsor's name (i.e. YOU). Make sure that all of your PSAs know that you are an active TC Club member. You want THEM in the club, so make sure you lead by example!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Q & AQ: So now I have to buy something to be an SFI affiliate?
A: No, you are never required to buy anything. Membership in the TC Booster Club is 100% optional. If you don't feel it will benefit you, you're under no obligation to join.Q: Is the TC Booster Club purchase requirement a minimum amount?
A: No, any TC purchase qualifies. The more purchases you can transfer to TC the better of course, but any purchase meets club qualifications. We expect you'll want to buy more when more of your favorite products and services become available in the months to come.Q: I bought something at TC earlier this month. Does that qualify for my purchase?
A: Yes. You now just need to sign the pledge
to become a fully qualified TC Booster Club member.Q: I already have a Standing Order at TC. Does that qualify for my purchase?
A: Yes. You now just need to sign the pledge
to become a fully qualified TC Booster Club member.Q: What if my budget won't allow me to buy from TC?
A: No one is suggesting that you spend money you don't have to spend! Rather, the idea is to do what is known as "transfer buying." That is, start buying the products you ALREADY BUY somewhere else...at TC instead. If you do this, you'll be buying from "your own store" and helping to make TC successful–which in turn helps your SFI business and everyone in your SFI downline as well.Q: There's nothing at TC I want to buy, so what should I do?
A: There are now over 20,000 different products at TC and we are adding hundreds more every week now (thanks to the ECA program). Surely, there are products at TC you want...or there will be soon. And if that's still not enough, with a little effort you can personally see to it that your absolute favorite products--products you now buy elsewhere--are available at TC (see THIS ARTICLE
).Q: There may be over 20,000 products at TC, but they aren't all available for MY country. So what should I do?
A: The first option is to simply be patient. We haven't even scratched the surface of what's to come. If there aren't ECAs there already, there will undoubtedly be ECAs in your country in the weeks or months to come. And/or...take advantage of this opportunity and sign up some ECAs yourself! There could be thousands of other SFI affiliates just like you in your country who want to start buying and selling products from local ECAs. By referring some ECAs in your country, YOU can become a major beneficiary! You can be the one earning lifetime royalties every time an affiliate or other TC member buys or sells the products of the ECAs you've referred.

.Q: I agree the product offerings are starting to look pretty good, but shipping to my country is still just way too expensive. How can I avoid high shipping fees?
A: One of the powerful features of the ECA program is that it's attracting companies from all over the world. If not already, you'll soon be able to patronize businesses from right within your own country, region, or city. In some cases, you'll be even able to pick up the products from the merchants' local retail outlet, eliminating shipping fees altogether (watch for announcements soon on the "Will-Call" program).Q: How do I find ECAs who are in my country?
A: We're going to be making this much easier soon, but in the meantime, here's how:
1. Go to TripleClicks.com and log in (using your SFI ID and password).
2. Go to Advanced Search
3. Select "ECA listings" as your category.
4. Select your country for the "Ship-To" Destination.
5. Click "GO."Tip: You may want to also try, in a separate search, selecting your country as the "Ship-From" Country instead of using the "Ship-To" as this may find additional options for you.Q: I want to buy from a local ECA, but I can't use any of the payment methods offered at TC. What can I do?
A: We are working on adding a method which would allow you to pay local ECAs with your local currency. Watch for a future announcement on this feature.Q: How does the timing work?
A: Once you qualify as a TC Booster, you'll be recognized as such both for the month you qualify and for the entire following month. Example: Qualify on April 3rd and you'll be recognized as a TC Booster Club member for the rest of April and all of May as well. However, if you fail to make a purchase before the end of May, on June 1st you will no longer show up as a Club member.Q: I want to "lead by example" as you've suggested. How do I do this?
A: Congratulations, this is a trait all true leaders and successful people share! By simply meeting the monthly qualifications of the TC Booster Club, all of your personally sponsored affiliates will see that you, their sponsor, leads by example and is a TC Booster (via the TCBC flag displayed behind your name in the top right corner of the SFI Affiliate Center). Furthermore, the TCBC flag will also appear on everyone's "My Upline Support Team" page
, so all affiliates under you within seven generations will also be aware of your Booster Club status. So, Team Leaders, make sure you're sending the right signals to your group and become a TC Booster today!
