Ready, Set, Upgrade! TGI Rocks!
Would you pay $7 to upgrade your lifestyle?
When you upgrade your TGI account to the Silver level for a ridiculously low $7 a month, you will be upgrading all your marketing tools. You'll be upgrading your education and skills. You'll be upgrading your downline. You'll be upgrading your 4 Corners income. And that, my TGI friend, will upgrade your lifestyle.
After more than 2 grueling weeks of adding and modifying pages, endless coding, continuous daily emails and support tickets with software vendors, merchant account compliancy issues, testing and retesting, I have finally finished setting up the new Silver membership level.
Now I am very anxious to get us all through the upgrade process so I can start adding and improving your Team Global Impact experience. And yes, the number 1 task on my list is adding Autoresponder capabilities and a nice strong email follow up campaign. Wouldn't you agree that just the autoresponder makes it worth a lot more than $7 a month? But that's just the beginning!
I decided to do this in 2 phases.
PHASE 1: Everyone has a full 7 days to upgrade to Silver. I will not be changing access to anything on the site during Phase 1.
PHASE 2: Next Saturday, August 22nd, at 12 noon (Central Time USA), I will change access to everything so only Silver members can access it. With the exception of the Lead Dashboard. Phase 2 will last for another 7 days and the countdown timer will reset when Phase 2 starts.
When Phase 2 ends, I will then change access to the Lead Dashboard. This way everyone can still access everything for the next week and everyone has a full 14+ days to copy all your leads.
I'm doing this as a courtesy to all TGI members who, for some strange reason, do not intend to upgrade to Silver. If you have generated leads using the TGI marketing system, those leads are yours and you should copy all of them.
I think most of you know that $7 is pretty crazy for what you get now and what you're going to get. I've already had several people tell me, "I can't believe you're only charging $7. All the tools and everything are worth a lot more." Yes, that's very true, but I wanted to make the fee low enough that every TGI member can afford it and it won't take away from any marketing you are doing. The volume will be high enough that it should cover the cost of adding and improving everything I talked about in my last update. Plus it will also cover the server costs which I have been paying for out of my own pocket ($295 a month) for the past 10 months.
How To Upgrade
Upgrading to Silver is so quick and easy (and secure) that, if you're not paying real close attention, you may not even realize when you're done. I'd like to give a big shout out to a friend and colleague of mine, Dan Moyer, for helping me test the upgrade process late last night and providing me with some excellent feedback. Thanks Dan!
First, simply login to your TGI members area. If you are still at the Bronze (Free) level, you will see a notification and a countdown timer near the top of the members home page. Click on the link under the countdown timer. Read the brief instructions at the top of that page and just do what it says to do. It'll be over before you know it. NOTE: That notification and countdown timer will disappear once you have upgraded to Silver.
You will also notice a new item in the Main Menu called My Account. That page will show your current membership level so you can use that as confirmation if need be that your upgrade did in fact go through. You can also use a link on that page to change your billing info, should you ever need to do that. Stripe makes it a seamless process. Unlike most merchant accounts that would require you cancel an existing subscription and start a new one, which could mean overlapping payments, with Stripe all you have to do is add a different credit/debit card and make it the default card. Their system is smart enough to know to start using that card for any future subscription payments.
The last thing on your My Account page is a Cancellation option. I'm required by Stripe policy to provide that option for you. But don't ever use it, ok? 🙂
This is a great opportunity for all of us to come together and build some huge momentum again. If you have team members who haven't been active for a while, now is the time to contact them and tell them what's coming and why they need to "Join the Team" once again.
As I said in my last update, my goal is to do anything I can to make it easy for you to get plenty of referrals in 4 Corners. All the additions and improvements coming to this TGI site will do exactly that.
One thing I'm considering doing is having a contest or drawing where the winner(s) and status updates are only posted in our team Facebook group. This way we can get some momentum going over there again, too. And in case you didn't guess, your Silver membership fee is going to cover the cost of the prize(s).
I have a lot of super cool ideas swimming around in my head. Can't wait to make them all a reality.
So, without further ado, let's get your TGI account upgraded to Silver right away. As soon as you have done your upgrade, start contacting your team and point them in the direction of this update. This will be posted here in the News section and also emailed out to every registered TGI member but some people don't check their email every day and it's possible that the email could go to someone's spam folder. The more people you can get to upgrade, the more active your team will be.
See ya on the inside,
