What makes The Customer Advantage DIFFERENT? It's MISSION and PURPOSE sets The Customer Advantage apart from any other company on the planet! The Customer Advantage is all about CONNECTING YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY - Businesses, Schools,Non-Profit Organizations, Churches, Residents - to help everyone and your local economy. In turn, it is CONNECTING COMMUNITIES to help the LOCAL ECONOMY of all those COMMUNITIES. This NETWORK of COMMUNITIES and their businesses, people, organizations, schools, churches and activities helps EVERYONE! It is truly a WIN-WIN-WIN opportunity and ANYONE and EVERYONE can benefit!
The Customer Advantage accomplishes these objectives by combining Daily Discount Offers from the businesses in each of these LOCAL COMMUNITIES with the proven business model of NETWORKING. This concept provides the opportunity for BUSINESSES to market their products or services by WORD OF MOUTH throughout the entire communities network, in turn SAVING their CUSTOMERS 50% or more and thereby enhancing their awareness in their community and expanding their customer base. The Customer Advantage provides advertising, marketing and merchandising support for each business and sends the Discount Offers emails to all members in that area. People who PURCHASE these products and services SAVE MONEY in the process. The REVENUE generated by the sale of these offers is SHARED equally between the business making the offer and The Customer Advantage, who then shares its portion equally with members. In addition, members who sponsor a business is paid 2% of the TOTAL AMOUNT of ALL the OFFERS purchased from that business! EVERYBODY WINS!
The Customer Advantage model forms a SAVINGS CIRCLE with all the connections in each person's group. ALL individual SAVINGS CIRCLE combined form a NETWORK SAVINGS CIRCLE. When everyone is paid from the sales of SAVINGS OFFERS, everyone's SAVINGS CIRCLE becomes their EARNINGS CIRCLE!
WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. People helping people by SHARING this FREE GIFT of SAVINGS!
JOIN - SAVE - SHARE - EARN...MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
These words represent the essence of The Customer Advantage. First, you MUST JOIN FOR FREE to be a member. Then, ONLY MEMBERS receive offers from LOCAL businesses for 50% or more off the retail price or value of the product being offered. When you SHARE this FREE GIFT with friends, relatives, businesses, non-profit organizations, schools, churches, clubs...ANYONE....you EARN a commission on EVERY DEAL PURCHASED by everyone in your referral network. Each member is PAID 5% of the PRICE of the offer (10% of TCA revenue) on each referral who purchases an offer to 5 levels of referrals. Sign a business for a MERCHANT account, which allows them to provide offers, and you get paid 2% of the TOTAL REVENUE GENERATED BY THAT OFFER FROM THAT BUSINESS! Now, that is just a brief overview, so let's delve into TCA in more detail.
Everyone who joins as a member (EVERYONE) participates in the compensation plan. Each member has their own referral link which links to their OWN website, where someone you invited can learn about TCA and JOIN. That person becomes YOUR DIRECT REFERRAL on your First Level. This is YOUR TEAM. Some will join just for the DEAL offers. Some will join to make TCA their HOME BUSINESS. Some will refer a few friends and relatives so they can also share in the special deals. Regardless, EVERYONE WINS! Membership is FREE....NOW, TOMORROW, NEXT MONTH, NEXT YEAR....FOREVER! The ONLY time anyone spends money is when they PURCHASE A DEAL CERTIFICATE and SAVE 50% or more on a product or service from a LOCAL BUSINESS! YES, Virginia, this REALLY is FREE....PERIOD!
FREE BACK OFFICE
Every member has their OWN SECURE Back Office. In this back office, you enter your Personal Profile, Manage your Website, keep up with your referral network and corporate information. Marketing materials and much more is included. TCA provides all of the tracking data, so all you have to do is have it available to you so YOU can keep up with all your referrals, commissions, etc. Most companies charge a MONTHLY FEE to provide this and the tools that come with it. At TCA, there is NO CHARGE for these services...EVER! All this is included with your FREE MEMBERSHIP!
SHARING THE FREE GIFT
TCA membership is a GIFT! It is FREE! Build YOUR referral network by simply SHARING THE GIFT with everyone you know and even those you may not know, but with whom you come in contact anywhere, anytime. You can use whatever means you choose to spread the word, such as on Facebook, Twitter, in Blogs or other internet site, but the BEST way is by WORD OF MOUTH in a personal contact or phone call. The next most effective is contacting people you know via email, with a short personal message. Members have access to sample emails for this purpose. Many other tools and information is available to help you with effective inviting. The bottom line is, simply, TELL EVERYONE! JUST SHARE THE FREE GIFT!
REFERRING TO NON-PROFITS [Charities, causes, schools, churches, clubs, civic organizations, etc.]
I believe TCA to be the BEST Fund-Raiser EVER! Just think about it! The organization GIVES something AWAY to its members and supporters, those people SAVE 50% or more on a local deal....and the ORGANIZATION GETS A DONATION! EVERY TIME someone in their network SAVES on a deal! Is that cool, or what? NO ORGANIZING and conducting events! NO inventory of merchandise or products! NO SELLING! NO SOLICITATIONS (Begging for money)! NO "MANDATORY" VOLUNTEERING! NO NOTHING....except INVITING and ENROLLING members!
Now, will these organizations continue to hold events, participate in major events, sell logo'd T-shirts and other items, in order to maintain awareness and interest? ABSOLUTELY! But, you know what? They won't have to do all that to survive!
REFERRING TO BUSINESSES
ANYONE can approach and enroll businesses into TCA. A BUsINESS should JOIN as a MEMBER , to enroll their customers into their network and earn commissions from deals purchased by their network...regardless of the source of the deal. In other words, if Jane is in the network of Business A and she buys an offer from Business B, Business A receives a 5% commission on that sale!
To OFFER A DEAL, a business must also register and open a MERCHANT ACCOUNT. TCA will work out all the details on the deal for the business. Whoever sponsored, or referred, the business will receive 2% of the TOTAL revenue generated by EVERY deal campaign in which they participate!
TCA administers the deal after working out the details with the merchant. TCA does all the marketing and advertising for the merchant's deal...WITHOUT COST TO THE BUSINESS! In fact, the business NEVER pays one cent to TCA! Rather, when a deal campaign is conducted, the business RECEIVES a check from TCA for 25% of the Deal Price. ..for the TOTAL AMOUNT of the combined sales of that deal! The MERCHANT sets the parameters for the deal...the RETAIL VALUE, the DEAL PRICE, the TOTAL QUANTITY of the offer, the time length of the offer and any restrictions on redemption, such as certain days or hours, if applicable. All the details of the deal offer is worked out between TCA and the Merchant BEFORE the deal campaign is conducted.
IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT EACH PERSON CHOOSING TO ENROLL BUSINESSES RECEIVE TRAINING ON THE SIGNING PROCESS TO INCREASE THEIR EFFECTIVENESS AND AVOID DIFFICULTIES RELATING TO THE BUSINESSES' PARTICIPATION. TCA, A vita d'Oro and associated teams provide the necessary training.
THE SAVINGS OFFERS
Members receive daily emails with offers in their local area*. If a member chooses to take advantage of an offer, they purchase the offer online, much the same as one would buy any other product online, via a Credit Card, Debit Card or PayPal. The member will then receive an email with PROOF OF PURCHASE and a REDEEMABLE CERTIFICATE to take to the merchant offering the deal. The member is also given a CONFIRMATION CODE for that deal which also must be given to the merchant at time of redemption. Personal ID may be required. This process insures that everyone involved in that transaction is properly credited with commissions and avoid fraud. This protects the members who purchase the deal, the merchant who offers the deal, and TCA, who administers the deal and distributes the proceeds.
Any member who receives an emaile with a Deal Offer can SHARE that offer with anyone else, including a post on Facebook or other social network, or an email, etc. If anyone who receives that shared deal, and they are NOT also a member, and they choose to purchase the offer, they will be required to join as a member before they can purchase the deal. When they join, the member who SENT the email or POSTED the offer from their email is credited with the referral, and gains another team member on their level one...AND are PAID commission on that sale!
All of the details of the COMPENSATION PLAN is contained in your Back Office. I like to think of your referral network as being a big SAVINGS CIRCLE with a BULLSEYE and 5 concentric circles, much like a dart board. YOU are the center, or the bullseye. Your DIRECT REFERRALS are in the first ring next to you. Their referrals are the next ring....and so forth, to the 5th ring, or organization level. As your SAVINGS CIRCLE grows, and your refer more and they refer more who refer more....and so on through your 5th Level, YOU are paid 5% of the PRICE of a deal ON EACH AND EVERY DEAL PURCHASE inside your SAVINGS CIRCLE. These earnings transform your SAVINGS Circle into YOUR EARNINGS Circle! Over time, these earnings can be SUBSTANTIAL!
