New business-building opportunity for ECAs!

screenshot_249We are pleased to announce today a new program for all TripleClicks ECAs (E-Commerce Associates).

Beginning in May, as an ECA, you will have the opportunity to be featured on a new ECA tab coming to the SFI homepage.

As a selected Featured ECA of the Day (FECAD), your company and products will be featured EXCLUSIVELY for 24 hours on the new ECA tab.  Thousands of our most actives affiliates will learn about your products and be able to connect with you with a single click.  And for checking out your ECA TConnect page at TripleClicks, affiliates will earn an Action VersaPoint, too!

In addition to being featured at the SFI Affiliate Center, you’ll ALSO be the featured ECA on our ECA tab at TripleClicks! Note: ECAs selling only SFI-related products can only be featured at the SFI Affiliate Center.

Our new FECAD program is a terrific way to build name recognition, gain invaluable exposure for your ECA offerings, and boost your sales!

If you’d like to secure one of these valuable and highly-limited slots, the first step is to apply at:

https://www.tripleclicks.com/ECA/ECAFeatureApplication

The minimum cost to be featured is 20 TCredits.  However, we are accepting bids up to 100 TCredits.  Higher bids will typically be given earlier slots.

Important: We are interested in featuring ONLY ECAs that project professionalism in all aspects of their operation.  Applications from ECAs that utilize poor images, typos or formatting errors, have below-average ratings, or that have unresolved customer complaints, etc. will be rejected.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: How many ECAs will be featured each day?
One.  You will receive exclusive visibility for a full 24 hours both at the SFI Affiliate Center and on the ECA tab at TripleClicks.com (ECAs selling only SFI-related products can only be featured at the SFI Affiliate Center).

Q: So there’s going to be a new tab at the SFI homepage…and l will be able to earn additional AVP through it?
Yes!  You’ll be able to earn 1 AVP (Action VersaPoint) each day by checking out our featured ECAs.  These new points will be courtesy of each day’s featured ECA.

Q: How long will it take for my application to get reviewed?
Just 1-3 business days typically.

Q: How will I know if my application is approved or rejected…and if the former, how will I know what day I’ll be featured?
Upon review of your application, you’ll receive an immediate email notifying you of the status of your application.  If your application was approved, the email will inform you of the date you’ll be the featured ECA.  We’ll also send you a reminder email the day before so you can make sure everything is in order for your big day.

Q: You state that viewers of the new ECA tab will be able to easily connect with me.  How can I then communicate with those who’ve connected with me?
Any news posts you do on your ECA TConnect page will automatically appear in Stream (at the Affiliate Center) for all who have connected with you.  You are also allowed to use our mailing system to send out–with just a single click–up to one email a week to all of your connections (See the “Send newsletter” link under Customer Communications at the ECA Center at TripleClicks).

Q: So my connections are a customer mailing list?
Yes!…and you should use this valuable asset you have as an ECA to promote your specials, sales, new products, etc.

Q: Can I apply to be a FECAD more than once?
Yes, though our exact policies on this are currently pending interest levels. Depending on interest and your bid, you may be able to be featured every 30-60 days.

Q: Is there urgency in applying?
Yes!  The sooner you get your application in, the better your chances of being featured in the near future (and for repeat featurings).  Also, note that we will be accepting a maximum of 60 applications to start.  Once we have 60 ECAs scheduled, you won’t be able to apply; you’ll only be able to get on a waiting list.

Q: What happens if there isn’t an ECA for each day?
For any day when no ECA has applied to be featured, the ECA tab will not be available.
