5 new E-Cards debut

We’ve just added five fun new E-Cards to the Congrats category.

These four are designed for congratulating/recognizing new Team Leaders:

AND…to make them super-easy to use, we’ve just added a link to them in the email notification you receive on all new Team Leaders (and Team Leader advancements) that you are the sponsor or co-sponsor of!  Just click the provided link and you’ll be able to select and send one of these cool new cards within seconds!

Staying on the “super hero” theme, we also added this new “YOUR ROCK!” card, which can be used for a wide variety of situations.  Remember, people love being recognized for their efforts, so don’t hesitate to send an E-Card (with a nice personal message from you of course) when you see a team member doing good things!

TC Gift Cards are now “TCards”

As you know, we are always working on exciting new projects here at SFI.  One is an initiative to bring popular, name-brand gift cards to TripleClicks.

With a robust gift card program at TripleClicks, we’d be able to take Transfer Buying to a whole new level!  You’d be able to, for example, buy gift cards for your favorite restaurants…and earn VP whenever you dined out.  Likewise for coffee, gasoline, clothing, groceries, and much more.

In short, you could earn all your VP each month–just doing exactly what you do now, by just patronizing all your favorite stores!

Even more VP could be earned when giving gift cards as gifts to friends and family members.  And, of course, even more VP would be earned when your PRMs purchased gift cards from TripleClicks.

In addition to third-party gift cards, we expect to also roll out traditional TripleClicks gift cards, at some point, too.  That is, you’d be able to purchase, for example, a $50 TripleClicks gift card and give it to someone–who could then redeem it on any product at TripleClicks.com (not just TCredits/MRP).

To clear the way for this, and to eliminate future confusion and conflicts, it’s necessary to move away from calling our current cards “gift cards.”  The new name is TCards (the “TC” of course referring to TripleClicks).

So, effective immediately, we are now stocking and shipping this new, redesigned version of the card:

TCard-front

TCard-back

The new cards work exactly as before, they just have a different name on them and no mention of gift cards.

Another benefit of this name change is that it should entirely eliminate any confusion with traditional gift cards.  That is, a criticism of the old card was that recipients received them expecting them to work like traditional gift cards, which they did not, which caused hard feelings. There should now be no confusion.

Note that any older versions of the card you have in stock (or that are in the hands of your prospects) will continue to be accepted and redeemable.

  • You may order a supply of the new TCARDS HERE.
  • To learn more about how to use TCARDS, see our guide HERE.

Updating everything else…

Now that the cards have been redesigned, we must now update the many, many references and images throughout TripleClicks.com and the SFI Affiliate Center.  Also, there are numerous marketing aids affected.  Please bear with us as we make all of these edits over the next few weeks.  Special note:  If you’re still seeing a reference to gift cards (where it should say TCards) after September, please submit a ticket and let us know so we get it updated as well. We greatly appreciate your assistance!

New TripleClicks homepage (and more)!

We are excited today to unveil a brand new, totally redesigned, homepage at TripleClicks!

The new design is also now fully mobile-friendly!  Whether you visit TripleClicks on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, it’ll look great…and work great!

screenshot_1161

One of the first things you’ll notice is that we’ve made the menu much cleaner and simpler.  There are now just four main sections:

  • BUY
  • SELL
  • BID
  • PLAY

Note: The former ECA , DEALS, and DIGITALS sections have been incorporated into the home page, BUY, and search engine.  And we’ve eliminated the MUSIC section, Song Of The Month tournament, etc.  Why?  The way music is purchased and enjoyed has changed dramatically over the last five years, and we are, unfortunately, just not positioned to compete in this space any more. Our affiliates are also better served with us putting more focus on developing a robust site experience.

By focusing on four core sections, we are going to be able to do SO much more to grow TripleClicks.  Indeed, this overhaul now sets the stage for MAJOR improvements, including:

  • A much bigger and better ECA program, with thousands of new sellers, and hundreds of thousands of new products–with better quality and better pricing, too.  We have big, big plans!
  • A more robust auction section–with new types of auctions in the works.
  • More and better online games to attract to TripleClicks a MUCH larger share of the more than 100 million people who play games online daily.

A cleaner, simpler site also make it easier for customers to find what they’re looking for.  In other words, look for a growth trend in sales soon, too!

Note: There are still some pages that are in the process of being overhauled.  For example, a slick new mobile-friendly shopping cart and checkout page will debut soon.  And a new Member Center, ECA Center, and more will follow over the next few weeks.

We hope you will take a few minutes to head over to TripleClicks.com now and explore our new look!

P.S. As alluded to above, this overhaul is just the appetizer.  The stage is now set for a plethora of powerful and exciting new additions we’ve been working on for months…so stay tuned and be prepared to be delighted by what’s coming!

New design for TripleClicks Gift Cards

i-TC_giftcard_2015

Many of you have requested that we redesign the face of our TripleClicks Gift Cards so it is clearer that the card provides TCredits and Member Rewards Points only.  We listened!  The new cards are now in stock for all orders starting today.  Order HERE.

Learn more about how to use TripleClicks Gift Cards HERE.

logo-EagerZebraComTIP: A great way to use these cards is in conjunction with Eager Zebra game promotions.  Know anyone who like to play games?  Doesn’t everyone?!  Tell them about your favorite TripleClicks games like Time Machine, Gold Streak, Card King, or Knockout Trivia (returning SOON).  Maybe even challenge them to beat your best score or badge!  Then just hand them a gift card (or provide them with a digital version–available where you order the physical cards), letting them know that the card will allow them to play six games for FREE!  Once they’ve registered, you’ve got yourself a new PRM and have set yourself up to receive 45% CV commissions on all their purchases for life!  It doesn’t get much easier than that!
