In this training, I want to share my Trunited getting started training. These are some simple step-by-step instructions you can follow to help you launch your Trunited business the right way. Keep in mind that it will take a little bit of time to learn and understand everything. Just ease into it, learn a little bit each day and do not give yourself information overload.
Before I go through the Trunited getting started training, here is a brief overview of Trunited.
What is Trunited?
Trunited is an online shopping portal, similar to eBates, but with additional options. It consists of a gift card mall, with about 400 to 500 different gift card options for popular big brand stores. Next, there are partner stores. These are popular websites and businesses with an affiliate program that Trunited participates in.
You simply login to Trunited first, click on the website you want to shop at, and you are then redirected to that website. Finally, Trunited has different direct to consumer products. These are mostly best-selling Amazon products that Trunited gets to offer for our members at the same price as on Amazon, or about the same. Basically, they work out a deal with these manufactures, and cut out the middle man (Amazon) and then the profits are paid back to us.
With the gift cards, we earn 2-5% of our purchase. In the partner stores, we can earn anywhere from about 1 to 15 percent depending on the merchant. With the direct to consumer products, we normally earn in the 20 to 60 percent range.
Everything in Trunited is based off profit points. When you buy gift cards, shop at any of the partner stores, or buy any of the direct to consumer products, you earn profit points for your purchase. Each merchant pays a different percentage. For example, if you earned 4% and spent $100 at Walmart, you would get 4 points.
When you buy the direct to consumer products, the points are immediate. They show up in your account instantly. When you buy a gift card or shop at a partner store, it can take 30 to 90 days to post to your account. During that time they are considered “on hold” points. Trunited does this in case people buy an item and return it. That way they don’t pay us for something, only to find out it was later returned.
At the end of each month your points are converted to a digital currency. Your personal purchases are ALWAYS converted into digital currency and never cash. Your purchases from your referrals is turned into digital currency, but can also be converted into cash if you are a paid affiliate.
There are three levels of participation: customer, affiliate and paid affiliate.
Everyone joins for free and is a customer initially. Once you have at least one point and you refer someone who has at least 1 point, you are now considered an affiliate. As a customer or non paying affiliate, you can get paid on level 1 referrals. Once you’ve referred 6 active people (at least 1 point) and three of them have referred at least 1 person, each with one point or more, you are now a Promoter in the company, and can get paid on level 2.
The only way to get paid on levels 3-15 is to be a paying affiliate. To get paid on deeper levels you need to work your way through the ranks. As you develop new Pacesetter legs, you can get paid deeper and deeper in your team.
You can match points on all your referrals UP TO the amount of your own points. So if you have 30 points and you refer me and I get 50 points, you would match up to 30 of my 50 points. If you also referred Tony, and he only had 20 points, you would match on all 20 points.
Only paying affiliates get actual money, if they choose to withdraw it. As a free member, you earn points which are converted into digital currency (in your Truwallet) which you can buy stuff with. This money is tax free.
Even if someone joined for free and simply referred 50 to 100 people, all on their level 1, they would get paid on all these people. They could build up a very large digital currency which they could buy stuff with, just like real money.
Trunited Getting Started Training
Here are your 10 simple steps for you to follow to get started with Trunited.
Step # 1: Create Your Trunited Account
The first step is to create your free account with Trunited. Get the link from the person who first shared Trunited with you, and sign up with them. If you weren’t referred by anyone, you can sign up on my team right here. The opportunity is currently for US residents only. When you click on the link, click on the JOIN FOR FREE button that you see on the top right of the page.
Once you do that, it will ask you for your cell phone number. If for some reason you don’t have a cell phone, get a free Google voice phone number, and that will work fine. Type in your phone number on the sign-up page, and you will be texted a confirmation code.
Type in that code on the sign-up page and then it will simply ask you for your first name, last name and email account. It will also have the name of the person who referred you. Double check to make sure this information is accurate. Do not sign up directly to the company. You want to sign up with the person who referred you.
Step # 2: Go Through the Website and Back Office
Once your account is created, you need to login. You will NOT receive an email verification that your account was created. Just go to www.trunited.com and type in your email and password. Spend an hour or two and look through the different tabs in the back office.
Check out the gift card section, the global brands, and the direct to consumer brands. There will be a short learning curve to see what’s available and how it works. In addition, click on the MY ACCOUNT tab and look at your customer dashboard and business dashboard. This is where you will see your stats.
Step # 3: Shop
The next thing you want to do is shop. Buy one gift card. Shop at one of the partner stores. Buy one of the direct to consumer products. This will give you an idea about how to use the platform, plus it will give you a great shopping experience you can share with others. Your “personal shopping story” is the best recruitment tool you have. Remember, you can buy just about anything you can think of through the Trunited platform.
Step # 4: Set Up Your Trubox
While this step is not mandatory, I highly recommend it, especially for people wanting to build a business with Trunited. I recommend you set up a Trubox order of minimum 30 points. Look through all of the direct to consumer brands and find two or three products that you like. These are the some of the best-selling brands on Amazon.
Trubox is an auto-ship feature. Once again, it is 100% optional. Trubox orders are processed around the 5th of each month and shipped on the 10th. With Trubox, you get free shipping. You can have your Trubox shipped to you one time, every month, or every other month. You can cancel, edit or modify your Trubox order any time you want. When you use Trubox, you get an additional 10% points on your order. For example, if you set up a 30 point Trubox order, you would get 33 points for it. Please note that you will be charged when you submit your order.
Step # 5: Connect on Facebook
Trunited has an awesome group on Facebook called Trunited Nation. I suggest you search for that group on Facebook and join it right away. It can take up to 1-2 days to get approved in the group.
In addition you want to join my team’s Facebook group as well. We’re called the Trunited All Stars. This is a secret group, so even if you search for it on Facebook, you won’t see it. To join the group, you can send me a friend request on Facebook here, and tell me you are on my Trunited team and want to join my group.
I will accept your friend request and add you to the group. I update that group every day with training tips and good to know information. The corporate Facebook group also gets updated daily and offers a ton of value. Make sure you add the people you refer to these groups as well.
Step # 6: Join Our Team’s Email List
I send out a few training emails to my team each week to share updates, provide recognition and let people know about upcoming training meetings, webinars and calls. If you want to be on my email list, just go to www.trunitedallstars.com to opt in. Each email has an unsubscribe button on it, so if you ever want to stop receiving the emails, you can opt out at any time. Your information is never shared or sold.
Step # 7: Download the Free Voxer App on Your Cell Phone
Voxer is a free cell phone app you can download on your smart phone. There is also a paid option, but you don’t need that option. Search for it in the APP STORE, download it to your cell phone, and then send me a text through Voxer with your user ID. My ID on Voxer is cholme3979. That’s how you can search for me on Voxer.
Once I get your ID, I will have you added to our team’s distribution list. Voxer is similar to a walkie-talkie. It also lets you send short voice messages and text messages to lots of people at once (your team). The distro list keeps you informed as to what is going on in the company, and our team. This is a must have for serious builders. People share success stories, recognition, inspirational messages, business building tips, corporate updates, shopping experiences, and much more.
Step # 8: Pick Your Marketing Strategy
I’ve created a training document with tons of different marketing strategies and success tips to grow your Trunited business. You can look at it here. I highly suggest you start with the people you know first. Go through all your Facebook contacts, cell phone contacts and email contacts. That alone should give you close to 1,000 to 2,000 people to share Trunited with. Personally, I contact everyone through Facebook messenger, text or email. I do a phone follow-up after they create their free account. This lets me works smart and leverage my time. After you’ve worked through your entire warm market, you should then go into the cold market, or work through your team members’ warm market with them.
Step # 9: Attend the Weekly Training
If you want to succeed with Trunited, it’s vital that you get plugged in and stay plugged in. We have a great community. Being part of the community will help you make new friends and learn tons of great ideas about how to make money and save money. There is no need for you to reinvent the wheel here. I just plug people into the training below, and I encourage you to do the same thing.
Monday – 9pm EST – www.trunitedlive.com, Mike Popovich, Business Overview & Training
Tuesday – 9pm EST – https://zoom.us/j/601959273, Chuck Holmes, Trunited Weekly Mastermind Meeting
Wednesday – 9pm EST – www.add2cart.biz, Kevin Weldon, Business Overview & Training
Thursday – 9pm EST – www.add2cart.biz, Kevin Weldon, Business Overview & Training
The Monday, Wednesday and Thursday presentations are pretty much the same every week. These are great presentations to attend yourself from time to time, but they are even better for your new team members to attend. The Tuesday meeting that I do is business training for our team. We cover new information every week. Please make sure you have Zoom downloaded on your computer.
If these times or venues change because of a holiday or scheduling conflict, I will send you an email notification.
Individual mentoring is available with Chuck at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (352) 503-4816 EST. It is best to email me first to set up an appointment for your training session. I will mentor anyone on my team, whether they are sponsored by me or not.
Step # 10: Focus on the Power of 3
We use a powerful concept called “The Power of 3” to build our Trunited business. In other words, we build the business three people at a time. Rather than go out and try to personally refer thousands of people, it makes more sense to refer a few people at a time, teach them the ropes and help them duplicate your efforts. By all means, you will want to refer more than three people, to find 3 serious people. Your goal should be to find 10-20 ACTIVE customers personally and THREE serious people. Once you find your three serious people, teach them how to do the exact same thing that you just did. Repeat this over and over in depth until you have a big team. This will allow you to go Pacesetter quickly, and help others do the same thing.
As you get questions, just post them in the Facebook group, since many other people might have the same questions as you do. I will do my best to answer all questions promptly. And remember, you don’t have to know every single detail to get started. You’ll learn as you go.
There you have it folks. This is my Trunited Getting Started training for people on my Trunited team. I hope you found the information helpful. If there is anything that I missed that you would like me to add in to this Trunited Getting Started Training, just send me an email to email@example.com and let me know.
