Are You Sure You Really Want an Internet Marketing Home Business?

It’s so weird how some people look at Internet home business as so one-dimensional. They may put out a little effort to join something, and go through a half-hearted motion to show a little interest; but that only goes just that far. No matter how much they receive to help them build a business, the whole ‘journey falls off right there where the help ends.

There may not be any further progress that would be considered a serious attempt to succeed in business beyond that juncture. You see they may have lost interest just by the mere mention of the concept of ‘w-o-r-k’! With the Internet it should be instant. It should be magical. The ‘money grows on trees’ don’t you know? Or another possibility is that they just do not relate to working on their own. That is they need to be supervised.

There are however with all due respect many who really do try – even if only for a while, they give it the ‘old college try’. But then they roundly reject the whole idea and assume there is some problem with the business or service if they do not see evidence within a set time-period where usually the main consideration beyond the necessary work is that they just don’t want to pay the monthly fee again.

Some drop in and kick the tires, then quit; and then drop back in and quit again – and it is ok to quit as long as you try again. It’s really a true statement, ‘you can’t fail unless you quit’. You can’t fail as long as you keep trying – as long as you do not ‘accept defeat’.

It is no sin that not everyone can do two main things that seem contrary to the usual working class mindset. #1 Work without being paid, even if working for themselves; #2 Continue to work without evidence of any progress (i.e., walking in faith = believing in the unseen). You have to determine early on if you might not be able to do that.

Otherwise it may be best just to get a second job or part-time job or some way to make money that doesn’t involve working for yourself (and not getting paid right away or even for sure). The perfect time to start a business is while you are working at least part-time or have some way to support yourself while you develop your business.

Besides that all being a real challenge for most people, people really do need to make money and that is why they are starting a business. When they see that it will take time, effort and likely at least some money, they often balk. They really can’t afford this scenario and maybe they didn’t realize that until they saw what would be involved in developing a real business.

People need to really have self-confidence for many reasons but particularly in business, because for one thing, they will have to constantly justify what they are doing on the Internet hour after day. They will even ask themselves at times, as well as to need to answer to their significant others’ objections. It would be much better if they had support particularly at a time like this.

However, it’s not hard to understand how someone might really believe you are spinning your wheels and being played for a fool if they can only relate to having a job and working a specific period of time for a specific amount of money – no more and no less. If they see work and no guaranteed return on investment, then it doesn’t ‘compute’ to them.

Not everyone has the ‘entrepreneurial’ spirit – and they should probably not try to start a business at least on the usual ‘shoestring’ budget. No crime in that either.

Amazing New TripleClicks Features & Policies.

New TripleClicks features and policies

 Effective immediately, we are testing some new features and policies.

1. All ECAs can now accept MRP as a payment option!  Yes, you can now spend your MRP on virtually every product listed at TripleClicks!

2. ALL Pricebenders auctions are now open to ALL bidders from ALL countries!  Here are the details:

For physical items, the auction item will be available for shipment only to US and Canada members (see silver/gold exception in FAQs).  If you live in any other country, you may now bid on any auction item, but if you win the item, you will be offered your choice of a TC gift certificate or a quantity of TCredits (each of which can be redeemed on virtually any product at TripleClicks).

Here’s an example: You bid on a tablet and win.  But because you live in Germany, when you check out, you’re offered your choice of a gift certificate or a quantity of TCredits.  You choose the gift certificate.  You can now purchase a tablet from a local ECA.  Also, because it’s local, shipping time is likely greatly reduced.  In addition, many truly messy issues we’ve had to deal with–like shipping restrictions on the shipment of electronics (and other products), going through Customs, etc.–are also greatly minimized or eliminated altogether.  Yes, a gift certificate greatly streamlines Pricebenders for our international members!

Special Notes:

A. No exchanges (either gift certificates or TCredits) will be available on digital items.

B. All auctions winners will be required to pay the ending (winning) price before choosing to accept a gift certificate or TCredits.

C. The value of TC gift certificates will be our approximate cost for the item and will expire after 180 days (Pricebenders gift certificates must be used within 180 days).

D. US and Canada members who win auctions for physical products will actually have three choices.  You may choose to take the item won, a gift certificate, or TCredits.

Big opportunity for ECAs

We are very excited about our new gift certificates program for Pricebenders and we think it’s going to provide a much, much better experience for our international winners.  But we’re not stopping there.  To truly empower this program, we want to align the program with our ECAs in a way that makes the experience even better yet–while boosting the sales opportunity for our ECAs around the world, too.

What we want to see is our ECAs stocking many of the same or similar products that we’re auctioning at Pricebenders. For ECAs that accomplish this (and are proven and reliable of course), we will refer winners of gift certificates directly to you!

Example: You live in South Africa and you are the winning bidder for a premium cookware set.  At checkout, we would provide you with a list of ECAs in your region that have this or a similar cookware product available.  With just a couple clicks, you can place an order with the ECA of your choice for the product (or similar product) you won using your gift certificate…and potentially receive it in just a couple days!  Slick!

Big opportunity for ECA REFERRERS too!

Know any businesses that might like to have potentially hundreds of gift certificate winners sent their way with a big gift certificate in hand and anxious to spend it?  That’s the opportunity for businesses that are willing to carry and ship “Pricebenders-approved” products.  To learn more about the ECA referrals opportunity (which can include handsome lifetime royalties for you for EVERY sale your referred ECAs make), go HERE.


Q: How do I redeem a gift certificate?
Simply choose “gift certificate” as your payment option when you check out.

Q: Can gift certificates be saved up and/or combined?
Yes, this is a great way to earn big, highly-coveted items such as a fast, new computer for your SFI business!  Note, however, that gift certificates won at Pricebenders expire in six months (180 days).

Q: How long will it take before ECAs can be listed with products to redeem my gift certificates on?
The timeframe is unknown as it’s dependent mostly on our ECAs, but we’ll start spreading the word with our ECAs now…and you can do the same.  In the meantime, we recommend that you patronize the top-rated ECAs in your country as listed on our ECA tab at TripleClicks or on theECA tab at the Affiliate Center.

Q: Can I redeem a gift certificate on a digital SFI product such as PSAs To Go or a Prestige Custom Domain?

Q: Could I use a gift certificate on a non-auction physical TC Direct product that can be shipped to my country?
Yes, however, you would be required to pay the shipping cost in such an instance.

Q: I’m an ECA that would like to have gift certificate winners directed to my ECA store.  How do I get listed for this?
You may submit a ticket at with your proposal.  If we like what we see from you, we will contact you when we are ready to incorporate this component of the program.  You can “apply” now or whenever you’re ready.

Q: What about silver and gold auctions?  Even though I’m in a country that you’ve been able to ship these items to previously, am I now out of luck?
No, you are not.  We will continue to ship silver and gold to you should you win one of these auctions (pending any future changes in shipping laws of course). This is the only exception to the new “Physical items are available for shipment to US/CANADA members only” rule.
