What are some daily marketing habits I can implement to grow my TripleClicks (ECA) business?

Being an ECA

What is an ECA?

An eCommerce Affiliate

If you don’t have a blog already I recommend getting one. If you can get your own domain and install wordpress I recommend doing that. However, if you cannot afford that you can settle for one of the free ones online. Add posts to it regularly and keep it updated with valuable information. One of the keys is to add value to what you bring.

You can categorize each marketing genre on your blog so you can do add posts for PSA’s in one category, ECA’s in another category and so forth. Keep it organized and easy to navigate.

If you prefer having a website you can do that instead. The same guidelines apply. Keep it updated and relevant. Use photos of products and things like that. Not too many and not too little. You want to catch the eye of your audience and capture their interest.

Use the ECA banners provided by SFI on your site. Explain how it will benefit the reader.

You can also use gift cards. These are one of the easiest ways to bring people to Tripleclicks. Who can refuse a free gift card? When they register they will see all the things they can buy and they will receive invitations from SFI to upgrade to affiliate.

Because we are here to earn money, we need to sell products. To do that we need customers.

You can place the link to your ECA portal on your website. Use the banners SFI provides also. Remember to key code them so you know where your customers are coming from. Even if you bring a PRM (Personally Referred Member) and they don’t buy from you, as long as they buy on Tripleclicks you still earn money. You can also separate this, invite PRM’s on one area of your site and then on another area focus on your ECA store.

The beauty of SFI is that we are not charged money every month for being an ECA like some sites do when you have an online store with them. You have the power of the internet at your finger tips and you can utilize all the tools that SFI provides.

To your success!

What are some daily marketing habits I can implement to grow my TripleClicks (ECA) business?

I love this question because I was an ECA and I believe I was on of the best. I did market higher ticket items so these products sell a bit slower but for me they are the most profitable. Really growing your ECA means that you need to have a central product theme, broad range of products in that theme, and excellent customer service.

I don’t believe you can effectively do all products like a larger discount store. The cash outlay need to do this is much higher and you are probably going to have more losers than winners when it comes to product categories. So what I did was to build my ECA around one hot product theme like electronics. Then you need to offer a broad range of products in that category. Some low range, mid range and higher products work great when they are all in the same category. For example, a Lenovo laptop is going to be more expensive than a Dell. So I would offer a power Dell laptop at a considerably lower price point than the Lenovo. But you might think I wouldn’t sell the Lenovo. Actually the opposite is true because price is not the only consideration in the buying process. If the prospect is looking for a status symbol in a notebook then a Lenovo is just what they are going to buy or even an Apple which cost even more! But for the personal more concerned about functionality and practically, the Dell may be a good choice because the prospect would save 100s of dollars over the Apple. Purchases are a matter of preference more than price. It’s difficult to wrap your mind around this sometimes as the more expensive items cost more to stock. Profit margin has to balance with customer needs and that’s how you sell anything.

As the saying is “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” customer experience is the same way. Every ECA should set out to provide the best customer experience possible but not at the expense of the business. Speedy delivery, excellent feedback, no hassle returns policy, and variety all play a major role in customer experience. However, the rating is in the power of the customer. Do all you can to get a favorable rating. It will only serve to better your customer service skills. I lost money on a few items to save the customer service experience. Image and reputation matters. So once they is lost know that you might as well close the ECA! Be courteous, polite, and available. Then after all of that sometimes you will get an unfavorable rating! Don’t let that bother you as long as you did everything you could do.

Finally, having a subdomain has some advantages. That is you benefit from all the top level domain traffic that you don’t have to pay for. So merely being on TripleClicks will bring traffic to your ECA (hint! ;) ) Then if you want to use all of the marketing tools available to create custom banners to sell products and attract members that’s all the better. Definitely promote your own ECA and maximize every opportunity to share on social networks. Keep accurate records and get your own domain so that you can promote your own brand – YOU! To recap:

1. High demand products centered on a theme.
2. Excellent customer service – returns policy, feedback, warranty, etc.
3. Do your own marketing as well as get your own domain.

————

1. Develop and reach out so as to make as many connections as possible with SFI affiliates. The more connections you have the more people who receive your weekly ECA newsletter.

2. Send out a weekly newsletter from your ECA back office. Promote new products listed. Promote bottom price point products for review. SFI Affiliates are always looking for new products to try inexpensively and then receive the 25 AVP for the review.

3. Provide tools that affiliates can use to promote your products. I make Banner ads, email ads and email campaigns that an SFI affiliate can use to easily promote my products. For example I have built an email Campaign that an SFI affiliate can use in conjunction with the $12.00 gift card. When a person requests the gift card they will in turn receive a series of emails on my ECA products. These emails will be customized to the SFI ID of the affiliate promoting my products, so that affiliate gets commissions for every sale.

4. Constantly teach in your newsletter how an affiliate can make money promoting your product and how he can attract buyers to your products.

Affiliates marketing my products is the real power of SFI. Yet most ECAs are just trying to sell their products to affiliates instead of training this massive sales force.

Developing Good Business Habits

Grow A Second Income

Internets Number One Affiliate Program

In order for your new home business with SFI and TripleClicks continue to grow and expand in team size and commissions you are going to need to develop some good business producing habits.

One of the first habits you need to develop is logging in every day at a specific time. The reason I state a specific time is because we humans are creatures of habit and once we form a habit it is hard for us to break it. Being set at a specific time will also help your family members (if any) know that it is time to leave you alone because of your work.

Once you have the habit of logging in daily you will easily form the habit of working your “To-Dos” without fail. This would also include visiting the forum, reading ASK SC questions and answers and working with your teammates.

To establish a business that is continually growing you can easily set a standing order for a unit of S-Builder along with some PSAs to go. If you are good at advertising for new sign-ups then you would want to be advertising daily for your new affiliates.

You need to develop the habit of dropping whatever you are doing in order to help your teammates as soon as possible and as much as possible. Your teammates are very important to the growth of your business. If you are ignoring your down-lines your business will not go very far. Remember that your teammate’s success is your success.

There are 6 income streams with SFI and TripleClicks you can maintain constant growth in any and all of them by making solid unbreakable habits out of the activities needed to succeed in each one of the.

Now; do you know how to make something a habit? It is much easier that most people think. All you need to do is force yourself to do the same thing at the same time for 14 to 21 days. Once you have done that it becomes a habit for you and when you do not feel like doing the needed work your business building habits that you took the time to make will kick in and you will get it done anyway.

Bad habits are just as easy to develop; so as you are building your business habits make sure you are developing “good” habits – it is easy to get lost messing around surfing the net when you need to be placing ads or writing a teammate a letter.

Building and maintaining good habits will help you to:

• Be consistent
• Be productive
• Stay motivated
• Consistently keep growing and expanding.

Good Communication For Business Building

 

Business Communication

 

From Strong Future Intentional Ask SC:

“In building relationships with your team members communication is the key. Your ability to communicate comes from experience, and experience can be an effective teacher.

The fact that you’re able to communicate what’s in your mind and asks this important question means that you can learn to write well and communicate with your team members effectively.

How to learn to write well and improve your communication skills in written form?

- Effective writing is not a gift that you’re born with; it’s a skill that you need to cultivate.

Before you start writing, consider what you want to say. Generally most people start working out their thoughts as they’re writing, which makes their writing less structured, meandering, and repetitive. Ask yourself this question: What should my audience know or think after reading this email/message? If the answer isn’t immediately clear, you’re moving too quickly. You need to step back and spend more time collecting your thoughts.

- Be direct to the point.

Make your point right up front. Most people find that the writing style and structure they developed in school doesn’t work as well in the business world. Postponing the message that you want to convey in the middle part of your writing will make your communication engagement with your audience unclear and ineffective. By concisely presenting your main idea first, you save your reader time and sharpen your argument before diving into the bulk of your writing.

- Avoid jargon.

Be selective in choosing words in consideration to your audience. As the business communicator, you must focus on the words you use and how you use them. Short, simple sentences, in themselves composed of words, also communicate a business style. In your previous English classes you may have learned to write eloquently, but in a business context, your goal is clear, direct communication. One strategy to achieve this goal is to write with the same words and phrases you use when you talk. However, since written communication lacks the immediate feedback that is present in an oral conversation, you need to choose words and phrases even more carefully to promote accuracy, clarity, and understanding.

- Always read what you write.

Consider putting your shoes in your reader’s shoes and ask the following questions: “Is my point clear and well structured? Are the sentences straightforward and concise?”

If you are writing ad copy, the goal is to motivate consumers to make a purchase decision. In each case, you are writing to a specific purpose, and a great place to start when considering what to write is to answer the following question: what are the readers’ expectations?

Reading is one step many writers point to as an integral step in learning to write effectively. If you want to write effectively in business, you need to read business-related documents. These can include letters, reports, business proposals, and business plans. You may find these where you work or in your school’s writing center, business department, or library; there are also many web sites that provide sample business documents of all kinds. Your reading should also include publications in the industry where you work.

You can also gain an advantage by reading publications in fields other than your chosen one; often reading outside your niche can enhance your versatility and help you learn how other people express similar concepts. Finally, don’t neglect general media like the business section of your local newspaper, and national publications like the Wall Street Journal. Reading is one of the most useful lifelong habits you can practice to boost your business communication skills.

- Allocate time to practice everyday.

Learning to write well takes time and your writing skills will improve as you practice everyday. Go to your local library and look for well written materials (books, magazines, etc.) to read everyday. When you read, be attentive to the word choice, sentence structure and flow. Most importantly, build time into your schedule for editing and revising. Writing and reworking your own writing is where the change happens, and it’s not quick. The time is well spent because good writers distinguish themselves on the job.

To summarize, here are the list of do’s and don’ts:

Do:

- Plan out what you will say to make your writing more direct and effective.

- Use words sparingly and keep sentences short and to the point.

- Avoid jargon and fancy words. Strive for clarity instead.

Don’t”

- Argue that you simply can’t write. Anyone can become a better writer with practice.

- Pretend that your first draft is perfect, or even passable. Every document can be improved.

- Bury your argument. Present your main idea as soon as possible. “

What are the most effective ways to communicate with your downline to get results?

Category: Team building

An Affiliate Answers:
“Hello, this is a good and important question! I’ve learned that my affiliates are much more successful when I communicate with them, so here’s what I do…First, I have a welcome letter set up that new affiliates read and gain V.P. for. Almost all new affiliates will read this, so the quality and content are very important. You can find and set up yours here: https://www.sfimg.com/ViewMyWelcomeLetterSecond, I set up an email service with Mail Chimp that automatically emails my PSA’s everyday for the first ten days. I created ten emails that walk them through getting Fast-Track qualified and reminding them to complete their Launchpad training for the day. I also invite them to connect with me on Facebook and Skype so that I am more available to them.After the first ten days, if they are active and completing the steps, I continue to work with them, offering them more personalized training (some affiliates are more advanced than others). If they are not active, I do not email them anymore from here.Third, I use the genealogy mailer once per week at: https://www.sfimg.com/Reports/Genealogy there’s a link on the right side that says “Send an e-mail/TeamMail to…” In this email, I update everyone on who the top five on the team are, and I have monthly contests for those who get the most V.P. I also reward anyone who makes EA with a TC Gift Certificate.Finally, I use the chat feature within SFI when I am logged in, if I see an affiliate online I will reach out to them and say hello, offer help, etc.I hope this serves you and that you have an amazing experience with SFI!!”————————————-

Hi, my name is Gerald, and the lovely lady is Barbara and we’ve been  SFI affiliates for over 6 months.

I’m with SFI because they’re the real deal. For nearly two decades now they’ve been providing anyone who’s willing to work a real way to earn extra income as an Internet marketer…from the comfort of their home.

One of the things I really love about SFI is that there’s never any purchase or sales requirements. Most companies have to have such requirements…or there would be no sales. But with SFI, there’s so much good stuff going on that sales, success, and commissions just flow naturally! And because SFI provides such outstanding training and tools, it doesn’t matter if you have any experience in marketing or not. You simply need to plug in to their proven system and go to work. More

 How do I get my affiliates to understand the importance of grabbing the DAILY Action VP available to them?

Category: Duplication

Affiliate Responds:

Let your affiliates know that it is important to grasp all VP within their reach because they play important role in their businesses; either in determining their ranks or/and their shares in the TC Executive Pool. This is as important as little drops of water, so they may be surprised as to the negative effect the absence of 1 VP is at the end of the month and ignoring them will be at their own peril.

Again, get your affiliates to understand that they should see the daily action VP for its total monthly contribution of about 372 VP which is much as far as this business is concerned, instead of viewing it from the stand point of just 12 VP. Unless you have other credible sources of earning other action VP otherwise, it could portend a business set back.

Another very important reason to get your affiliates to understand the importance is that they also provide a credible source of knowledge. This is because the To-Do-List contains very useful information on sponsoring, TC sales and ECA recruitment, so by not just clicking away the point but learning by reading some of the information contained therein is to their advantage too.

Let them also know that grabbing the daily action VP is like a preparatory or a warm up phase to opening and start working on their businesses on a daily basis, even if they think they don’t need the VP. Getting used to doing the daily action will be an impetus to visit their SFI businesses on a daily basis in order to do one or two things for the benefit of business.

In addition, make them understand that if they do not earn at least 10 VP daily, then they stand to lose their Daily Streak Badge, which is very important for duplication purposes. Furthermore, they will also miss out of the prestigious E365 Finalist draw (for those still in it) where they will be in the run to win various prizes, if they don’t earn at least 10 VP daily.

As you can see, tell your affiliates that they have nothing to lose by taking their daily action points seriously, because they provide some additional benefits.”

What are the best methods to attract new TripleClicks members?


Asked by Ellie Murphy

What are the best methods to attract new TripleClicks members?

Category: TripleClicks Sales

“There are several very lucrative market niches within TripleClicks. Reaching out to them will help us attract Tripleclicks members.

First, let’s mention the weight loss market, the Health-Nutritional market and the Gold Silver and Metals market. These three are well served with the TipleClicks Direct with high quality products, and reliable delivery. This is an excellent niche in which to grow TripleClicks membership.

Every affiliate would be well advised to focus on finding TripleClicks members who would be potential buyers of TripleClicks Direct.

TripleClicks offers one of the highest commissions rates in SFI and in the online business world,
Second, Pricebenders also offers high potential sales revenues. The online Penny auction niche market is thriving. The Price-benders auctions offer great saving on highly diversified quality product offerings.

Third, since their introduction over a year ago, the Eager Zebra game series have gained momentum and established an excellent reputation. We have not fully taken advantage of the sales opportunities withing Eager Zebra.

As a result, we have an extensively diversified clientele to prospect.

The best methods to attract all these potential customers should be both online and offline.
One the one hand, our warm market should be fully aware of all that TripleClicks is offering. We should also use newspaper advertising, flyers, and X-Cards to drop at any location where we can potentially attract a customer. In the Marketing section we have a wide range of marketing aids and marketing methods very much suitable for offline marketing.

On the other hand, online marketing is, as we know, with a worldwide reach. Here, to be effective, we need to do a thorough search on these various niche markets, their buying motives and habits, how to locate them, how to interact with their members.

Based on that information, our online advertising, our website and blog publishing, our social media activity, all our online efforts should be coordinated, using the appropriate keywords, the specifics of each niche market, as well as the best suited marketing methods and aids.

It is a long term sales strategy that will yield great results once the codes of each niche market are cracked.”

www.sfimg.com/Training/AwesomeSponsor
FIRST MONTH :
GOAL
Become a Fast Track member and an Executive Affiliate.

-Determine the remaining number of days for the current month . For example you sign up on the 15th of the month that means that you still have 15 days (for a 30 days month) left to reach you EA status.
-Compute the number of VP that you can get from your Daily Task . Example , if you have 15 days multiply it with 11VP then it will give you 165 VP . That means you need 1335 VP to reach your EA status .

-Go to your VP Ledger page ( www.sfimg.com/MyAccount/MyReports/VPLedger ) and complete the task that will give you the 1335 VP needed for your EA status . Remember that if you become a Fast Track member you will also get an additional 250VP. You will also get your Fast Track member badge .

-IMPORTANT : Just complete the task in your VP Ledger that will give you the needed number of VP for your EA Status . You can reserve the other task ( VP ) for your Second month . Make sure also to log in and complete your Daily Task so you can get the required number of VP from your Daily Task.

-Your first month goal is to become a Fast Track member and to reach your EA status . By doing this simple plan, you can be sure that you will accomplish your goal. Additional goal is to READ and LEARN about the system of SFI . Feel free to explore SFI website , READ and LEARN all the useful information that you can find.
NOTE : Participate daily in the Daily Grand Draw and other TC Games for a chance to win the TCredits and other Prize.

SECOND MONTH :
GOAL :
1. Maintain EA2 Status.
2. Find at least 3-5 Personally Sponsored Affiliates (PSA).

-Compute the VP that you can get from your Daily Task . For Example , if the current month is a 30 days month that means that you can get 330 VP from your daily Task.

-Go to your VP Ledger page and check how much is the remaining VP that you can get from your uncompleted task. This will vary depending on the task you complete during your first month.

-Check if you are eligible for the monthly Task like “Rate your Sponsor “ and “Setting your monthly goal “ . If not then you can do your Weekly Task ( whichever is available ).

-Assess how much VP you can get to maintain your EA2 Status ( required is 1500VP ) .

-You can contact your Sponsor if you find any problem in completing some of the task in your VP Ledger.

-If the available VP is not enough to reach 1500VP to maintain your EA2 Status I personally recommend that you purchase a single or multiple TCredits from TripleClicks. 1 TCredit will cost you $1.89 and will give you 102 VP and 5 MRP . Purchasing multiple TCredits can help you complete the 1500VP required for your EA2 Status. You can use the TCredits and MRP in your 3rd month goal.

THIRD MONTH :
GOAL :
1. Reach Bronze Team Leader Status.
2. Find more PSA’s.
-It may be ambitious to reach Bronze Team Leader Status in your Third month but it can be done . This is considering that you already find at least 3 PSA that will also maintain their EA2 status. If not, concentrate in finding your 3 active PSA’s and just maintain your EA2 status until you find them. The easiest way to maintain your EA2 Status is to place a 1500VP standing order ( I will recommend that you get the 125TCredits Standing order. You can use the TCredits to advance your status to Team Leader Status.

-There are other methods to earn VP’s but it will require you to spend more , my simple plan was designed to minimize the cost of reaching and maintaining a Bronze Team Leader status.

-To reach BTL status you must earn 3000 VP . Below is a simple plan to help you earn 3000VP.

ACTION VP’s :

MONTHLY VP
Rate your Sponsor 10 VP
Setting your goal 5 VP
For 1500VP SO 100 VP

WEEKLY VP
Sending Team email 120 VP
Visiting TC connect page 20 VP
Posting Stream Post 12 VP

DAILY VP
Completing Daily task 330 VP
(For 30 days month)
Bonus VP per auction Bid 1VP =1Bid

TEAM LEADERSHIP & SUPPORT :
(Assuming you already have 3 PSA that will maintain EA2 Status 300 VP

TOTAL ACTION VP 1026 VP

SALES VP : ( Max is 2000 VP )

-Place a 125 TCredits Standing Order (Cost $36.25) 1500 VP

-Use the 125 TCredits in Auction. For every Bid you make you will get 1 VP and 5 MRP . Total MRP’s that you will get is 625 MRP. Use this MRP to buy 4TCredits ( 126 MRP/TCredits ), you will get 102 VP and 5MRP per TCredit Total = 408 VP

- You have a remaining 121 MRP + 20MRP from the purchase of 4 TCredits so you still have 141 MRP’s. This will enable you to purchase an additional 1 TCredit . You will get an additional 102 VP

TOTAL SALES VP = 2010 VP

TOTAL SALES VP + TOTAL ACTION VP = 1026+2000 = 3026VP

YOU REACH YOUR BRONZE TEAM LEADER STATUS. The next important thing that you should do is to find PSA that will duplicate this plan. As your active PSA’s increase, the VP that you will get from “TEAM LEADERSHIP & SUPPORT” action will increase and it will help you advance to next Team Leader Status.
