Frequently Asked Questions

THE COMMUNITY

A group of businesses, possibly unknown to each other, working together to benefit themselves and as they do, they automatically help each other and benefit the Community at no additional cost.

Companies “piggy-back” off each other’s efforts to increase customers and sales and reduce costs and increases efficiencies.

Businesses collaborate with each other, in noncompetitive areas to achieve similar goals. The more companies a business can collaborate with, the greater the benefits and its contributions to the Community.

Here are several examples.

First, let’s say you’re looking to open a new location in a different state from your current one. You can turn to the Community in that state and ask for referrals for contractors, personnel, legal and financial advice, etc. The recommendations you receive will be people that Community members have actual experience with.

Second, you can work with other Community Members to negotiate better prices for supplies or contract work your business needs.

Third, you can share databases to cross market and cross promote each other’s business, thus increasing each other’s reach without each of you reaching into your own pocket for additional funds.

TCBC is the perfect example of us being a Member of the Community that can help every other Member. Because of the expected size of our Community, we can offer programs and services, like our video program and newsletter service, at much higher quality or lower
prices than if you contracted with an outside firm to obtain the same objective.

If you’re a B2B supplier, our video newsletter program will help build your reputation with your customers and clients. It shouldn’t take long for them to realize that better and more frequent communication with their customers results in more satisfied customers and more sales.

Your customers will also know they have your company to thank for providing the FREE newsletter program even though TCBC manages and services the program at no cost to your company. This helps build our database and the advertising income pays for everything so your customers can get the newsletters for FREE.

 

This is known as a Win/Win/Win situation.

Further, as TCBC builds the Community, adds new products and services that benefit the Community and increases the ease and lowers the expense to market to the Community, your business can grow faster, with less work and at lower risk than if you had to do all
these things by yourself.

Plus, for helping us build the Community, members can earn very generous incentives. We believe, the more you contribute, the bigger the rewards and bonuses you deserve.

Membership is FREE. You only pay for products and services you need and everything comes with a 100% Total Satisfaction Guarantee. Your satisfaction is our primary concern.

Further, because we know you’ve never used some of the products or services we offer, in many cases you can try it for FREE (we won’t even ask for your debit or credit card). In all cases, you can cancel at any time and get a pro-rata return of any unused service for which you subscribed.

VIDEO MARKETING

Simply stated, video is the single most effective media to capture attention, generate interest, convert prospects to customers and get customers to recommend your business to their friends and associates. Nothing else comes close to being as effective.

It could be but, with TCBC’s program, even new businesses with limited budgets can easily afford to use videos on their websites and in their social media program.

Just take a look at our website and judge for yourself but, we’ll go one better.

Just fill out the Form for a FREE Video and we’ll create your own special. And, we won’t even ask you to give us your debit or credit card until you subscribe to one of our regular programs. If you don’t subscribe, the video is yours to keep and use for as long as you wish.

That’s how confident we are you will absolutely love our program. You get all the benefit we take all the risk.

FOUNDING MEMBERS VIDEO MARKETING PROGRAM

Founding Members help us build and expand the Community. As our way of saying “thank you” we’ll give you five years of FREE videos for referring other members who subscribe for a total of 36 months.

It doesn’t matter whether you get 36 people to subscribe for one month or three people who subscribe for 1 year each. As soon as you reach 36 total paid months, we rebate every dollar you spent and give
you five years of FREE videos. Depending on the program you subscribed to, that could be worth $9,000, $15,000 or $24,000.

Yes, it’s that easy. What are you waiting for? This program will expire, never to be repeated again, after we generate 1,000 Founding Members.

VIDEO NEWSLETTER MARKETING PROGRAM

There are services where you can buy or lease a database. Depending on your business, some are better than others and costs can vary substantially. These may or may not be cost effective depending on a lot of factors such as urgency of immediately starting your marketing program, participation rates, conversion rates, profit margins, customer loyalty, lifetime customer value, number of referrals generated from customers, etc.

For members who wish to subscribe to our video newsletter program, there is a simple, easy, highly effective and low-cost method of building a truly effective database.

For additional information, see Database Building above.

For businesses like yours, we recommend sending a weekly newsletter because your customers probably eat out often and when they do, you want to make sure they choose your restaurant over your competition. A weekly newsletter will work perfectly provided you have something new to talk about each week such as featured menu items, special events, wine tastings, free desserts on Wednesday or whatever wild and crazy promotion you dream up.

We’re here to support you and enable you to do this very effectively and inexpensively. A weekly newsletter will allow you to quickly gauge your ROI which, due to our super low prices, should be sky high. Your CFO should love us.

Simple, just like radio, TV, newspapers and magazines, our video- enhanced newsletters are advertising supported. The money we earn from selling ads allows us to recoup our costs and earn a profit without us having to charge you a larger fee. Yes, we’re capitalists and we want to earn a profit too.

FOUNDING MEMBERS VIDEO NEWSLETTER MARKETING PROGRAM

Founding Members help us build and expand the Community. As our way of saying “thank you” we’ll give you an immediate 25% discount on a one-year subscription. Plus, we’ll give you an extra 25% discount for each business you refer who also subscribes for one year. Help us enroll just three businesses and your newsletter is now 100% FREE.

But wait, as they say on TV, “it gets better… a lot better.” Help us enroll four or more businesses and not only will your newsletter be FREE, we’ll pay you $100 per month for two years. That’s a saving of $1,450 and in income of $2,400 for a total of $3,850.

Admit it. That’s the best deal you ever heard of. However, the Founders Program will only be available until we have 1,000 members, then the program ends, never to be repeated.

COST OF PROGRAMS

TCBC has multiple ways to earn money. The more members who join the Community, the more money we earn. Therefore, we want to build a huge Community where we can offer multiple products and services to lots of clients. The more members, the greater the number of products and services we can offer at low prices. That’s a win for the client, the Community and for TCBC.

FREE VIDEO

Whether or not you’ve ever used video to market products or services on your website or on social media, TCBC would love to make one just for you… at no charge. Then, you can judge for yourself. And, when we say free, we mean FREE. We won’t even ask you for your debit or credit card.

Why not give it a try? You have nothing to lose and if you choose not to subscribe to our monthly video program, you can still keep and use the video we created for you absolutely FREE. Use it wherever you want as often as you want.

CLIENT WEBSITE

Yes, and very effectively too. In fact, we recommend you use 30-second or 60-second videos on your site to give your promotion even greater impact.

TCBC offers beautiful, high quality videos at very low prices. To see what we mean, check out the videos on our site and then fill out the form to get your very own custom video, absolutely FREE.

We’re so sure you’ll love it we don’t even ask for your credit or debit card upfront.

Of course. You’ll need a video for each event and possibly more if you’re planning to highlight certain aspects of each event. That’s the beauty of our program. We’ll create two videos for you each month and, should you need more, we can do that as well and charge you less than virtually any other provider.

DATABASE BUILDING

For clients with no database, we’ll show you how easy it is to build one and we’ll do the most difficult and time consuming part to help you build it.

That depends on what information you need, how large a database you need, how often you use it, add and subtract data from it and how well you “scrub” it to remove old or outdated information.

Many independent business owners spend hundreds to thousands of dollars a month to lease a well-designed and managed database because they know how valuable it is to maintain communication with their customers and prospects.

Cost is only one factor in determining the value of your database. A better measurement would be, what is the return on the investment?

To answer this properly, you’ll have to know things like your response rate, your conversion rate, how loyal your customers are, what their average order size is, their lifetime value and whether or not your customers can be converted to “ambassadors” who will gladly recommend your business to their friends and associates.

Yes. In fact, TCBC can help you build a very effective database at virtually no cost to you.

All you have to do is collect business cards from your customers and prospects and then each week or so, put all the cards in a pre-addressed, postage paid envelope that we supply and mail the cards to us. We’ll scan the cards, enter the names in our special database software and send you a copy of the information.

These people are your most valuable prospects and customers because they’ve already shown interest in your business by taking the first steps to come into your establishment or fill out a form on your website. You definitely want to keep them coming back and telling their friends and better still, bring their friends with them when they return.

The best way to encourage them to give you their business card is to offer them an incentive. If you own a restaurant, you can put a fishbowl by the cash register with a sign that says, “GET SPECIAL OFFERS AND GURANTEED SAVINGS. Join our newsletter program.”

Drop in your business card in the bowl and win a chance for a FREE dinner for two. Join our newsletter program and get additional discounts, FREE desserts, wine and opportunities for other prizes.”

Smart restaurant owners will train their wait staff to explain the benefits of enrolling in the newsletter program. Your staff should always ask for business cards and offer a small discount for joining that you immediately take off the bill.

If you have different type of retail business, the best offer is to give something related to your business if possible. If not, the simplest way is to offer lottery tickets or, even better, collaborate with other Community members and offer discounts to their business or service.

That way you all win. Isn’t collaboration great?

SOCIAL MEDIA

Whatever you’re doing with social media, adding video will make it more enticing for people to see your message, more memorable when they see it and more effective in moving them to take action.

It’s easy. Just fill out a form with some information and our team will create the video for you, including music. We’ll then show it to you for approval. If you’re not 100% satisfied, there won’t be any charge and we’ll create another until you are 100% satisfied.

No problem. Our staff can manage your entire program and the cost will be less than hiring a part-time high school dropout.
