I just had an AHA! moment. The question is not asking how you present the ECA program, but it does ask how you describe TripleClicks to prospective participants in the ECA program.

They want to know what it is, what's in it for them, what they will get out of it, what it costs, what they have to do, and will it be worth their time. But their first question will be what is it?

In the past, I have gone to great lengths and costs to promote the ECA program. I bought the TC business

Prospective ECAs always look for opportunities to expand their business, sell more and earn more.

If everything is commercially viable, they will certainly jump in to the band wagon.

Keeping this in mind, before approaching any prospective ECAs, I would try to gather information about them on:

1. How long they are in the Business?

2. What is their credibility in the Market?

3. Do they enjoy good customer back up?

4. What is their performance

First, Open your own ECA and learn exactly how it works.

Second, As you learn the benefits of owning an ECA you will be able to recruit vendors easily. For example, I have an ECA and it has been the Featured ECA. This is a powerful tool/opportunity for any vendor. You get a huge amount of exposure for your store. Any retailer would love it.

When I was featured I went from making sales once every three days or so to every single day.

Also because I am an ECA I learned

Hi Andrew

My main focus is on phone call canvassing I believe this to be one of the most effective ways of getting quality business owners to sign up to TripleClicks. Many people are uncomfortable with this prospecting method but I believe that if we want businesses with quality products that help TripleClicks rival eBay, Amazon and raise the value of each VP in the Executive pool we need to be prepared to move out of our comfort zones and do what is necessary.

We always have to conduct ourselves in a professional businesslike manner but when we deal with ECA's I think it is even more important.

You have to convince these guys that joining TripleClicks makes good business sense. You have to make sure they take you seriously.

If you want to approach them via e-mail you can use the Gateway but your e-mail should be professional and give them a reason to click on that Gateway link. You can give them a point by point summary

I am promoting TripleClicks to prospective ECAs by telling them the benefits that they will get if they becomes an ECA and put their products in the website to sell. I tell them the procedure that they need to follow and documents that they need to provide to get certified as an ECA.

I do face to face promotion by visiting prospective ECAs door to door. I promote my ECA Gateway through social media campaign, email campaign and through print media ads. I also do connect with shops through

I have not actually started to promote TC to prospective ECAs.... yet. But your question got me thinking - why aren't I? A few quality ECAs could mean lifetime commissions for me of a substantial amoumt.

So, I thought of what I should be doing. Here's what I would do:

- Hit up small, local business that don't yet have an online presence, flea market sellers, local artists, and churches or other organizations that sell merchandise to raise funds.

- Dress professionally,

I practically do door-to-door marketing with my Flyer and complimentary card handy.

I approach supermarkets and high street stores (not chain of stores) telling them my name and that I am an online marketing agent and an SFI affiliate.

No small scale store owner is not happy making additional sales or exposing his products to a larger customer base. So he needs me. As a matter of fact, this is what they pay marketing consultants or employed marketing staff to do. Offering to

Promoting TripleClicks to prospective ECAs takes time and patience much like prospecting for PSAs.

First off it is necessary to find or identify a niche market, one that you are familiar with, or have a passion for. Advertising over a broad range is quite difficult, it is better to select an industry that keeps up with with the latest trends, provide a necessity, or offers selections of products or services in demand.

SFI provides an ECA Referral Guide, however everyone will

I promote in the following ways:

3. next, i introduce Tripleclicks to him as my company. This builds trust.
4. i share with him, what offers my company has for
