Read This At Your Own Risk…

2011/02/17

As of today, Feb 17th, 2011 this company, GROUPON, a “deal of the day” website that offers 50% or more discounts from local stores in your city, town or neighbourhood is less than 30 months old and the stats are “too good to be true”, but that’s the point…they are true and they read as follows…

One guys idea.
Launched Nov. 2008.
Just 50 users in first month of operation.
Started with $1 Million in seed money.
Serves over 150 markets in the USA.
Serves over 100 markets abroad.
Realized in excess of $700 Million in profits so far.
Has over 40 Million registered users.
April 2010 – valued at $1.35 Billion.
Turned down offer from Yahoo for $3 Billion.
Dec. 29th. 2010 – Turned down $5.3 Billion offer from Google.
Dec. 29th. 2010 company valued at $6.4 Billion.
Preparing an IPO for later in 2011 for $15 Billion.

Now, here’s the thing, up and until a few days ago, I had never heard of this company and I daresay, unless you’re a single professional female (70% of their users) you may not have heard of GROUPON either.

The idea is simple, stupid…basically a “word of mouth” recommendation on steroids, delivering pumped up over the top sales to and for the participating store…Here’s basically how it works.

Users sign up as members anywhere in the world, once critical mass membership is reached in a specific market, GROUPON sales and marketing people approach stores with an offer… “How would you like to sell more of any one particular product in one day than you sell all year, and have it cost you less than a month of your current advertising and marketing budget?”

Who would say no to that?

Once a deal is struck, an email is sent out to the subscribed users and…Well, you guessed it…

Gap stores did a national “deal of the day” recently, sold 445,000 units in one day, their servers shut down.

The new coffee shop in Portland that on opening day, had over a thousand eager customers clamouring to get through the door…I can see that in my mind’s eye…freaking’ chaos!…that barista hightailed it out the back door when the espresso machine struck out, the owner and staff just about having heart attacks…a nightmare, if you ask me…too funny. Apologies for my absurd sense of humour here, but I have opened several restaurants and I can assure you, you do not want 1000 people coming through your door, on your first day of business…unless you’re Disney.

Quote – Forbes Magazine – “GROUPON is projecting that the company is on pace to make $1 Billion in sales faster than any other company, ever!”

So, you get the picture, right?

The point I am trying to make here is this…Thinking of past missed opportunities, how different my life would have been had I been aware of, or listened to good advice, and bought into Microsoft, Dell, Starbucks, Google, Facebook, AOL, etc…In some cases the people behind these companies were visionaries, for the most part…not…just ordinary people like you and I, in the right place at the right time and standing in front of their opportunity, having the insight and faith to proceed with their idea.

I wonder how many times Bill Gates was told – “it will never work”, whatever “it” was at the time…”It’s too good to be true” or when the Starbucks guys said…”We are going to open these funky little corner coffee shops and sell take out coffee for $4.95 a cup”, when a perfectly good cup of Joe was selling for less than a buck every where else.

The difference between us and them, I imagine, was their passion for what they were doing, and most important of all…they were in front of the opportunity. Call it an evolutionary process if you will, these phenomenal companies would have happened with or without them, and they have introduced us to the future…

In recent years I have become somewhat of an opportunist…actively looking for the “next big thing”, something I can get in front of, become involved in, and get swept along in the tidal wave to follow…

You are reading this blog today, I venture, because you too are looking for that one thing that can change your life forever…give you the lifestyle and peace of mind you dream of…to be free, to do what, when and where you want, whenever you want…

Listen to me, read closely and hear me…these opportunities exist…they are here now!

You can be part of this evolutionary process that is happening faster and faster with today’s technology.

The Commodities Online opportunity is one of these, an about to become a tidal wave phenomena, a get excited about now and get involved today must do…it’s working, its growing and I believe, will be a company that makes world headlines in time to come…Subscribe today, or at least learn more about this great investment vehicle here, or call me…for goodness sake, you have absolutely nothing to lose…I don’t want to be the one who says…I told you so a few years from now…just do it!

I am inviting you to look at another about to explode and erupt, passive income opportunity right here.

Do me a quick favour…read the first 3 paragraphs again, read them now before you read this…

I read somewhere some time ago, or maybe I said it, anyway, goes like this…”that there is nothing new in this world, just improvement, how it’s presented, packaged, conceptualised, realized and delivered”…”Word of mouth advertising” – nothing new about that, Right?

C’mon, you’ve thought about this, something along these lines…”What if…what if, I got paid for every time I raved about a place, a product, a movie, restaurant…and, what if I got paid for every person I told who raved about my raves to someone else and so on…”

Well…Now you can…

The Custome Advantage

TCA – The Customer Advantage – This Company is in pre-launch, it operates the same way as GROUPON, except for a very important MAJOR difference…that affects you in a very BIG way…

You sign up for free.
You never spend a dime unless you want to…
You tell your friends and they sign up too, and they tell their friends and so on…Just like the users have done on GROUPON…

Now, when this company launches in a few months and those 50% or more discounted “Deal of the Day” offers get emailed out to people that were directly or indirectly a recipient of your “rave”, who signed up as a user, under you… like a genealogy type tree system spreading across the globe…and they purchase the deal…You get paid!

You get paid a small commission for raving about TCA, they sign up, they buy, you get paid…simple as that!

It does not matter where they are or what they purchase – you get paid…

So, I am telling you here, I am inviting you to participate, no money spent, free to get in front of this massive opportunity…Just do it!!! I said that…

Go here; sign up now, it will take a few minutes of your time…look at the compensation plan available to you…get freaking excited…

This is not working…just do what you do everyday…tell people, RAVE about the opportunity…You will be very happy that you did…

By the way, if you are a regular reader you are probably be wondering, what the heck is Derrick doing here, where is he going with this…not the normal Commodities Online post…

As I mentioned in a past post, I was thinking of making this blog about passive investments and income opportunities, alternatives to Commodities Online. Passive income opportunities that I do due diligence on and then inform you, my reader about, as something to look at and get involved in.

Well, I have decided that I am keeping this blog only for pre sold physical commodities and that I will start a new blog about all the other good stuff I come across. This post is the introduction to that blog which will be up and running in a few weeks from now.

Thank you for your patience…thank you for reading…and Just Do It, already.

Be the Blessing.

Cheers. Derrick.
