People are frustrated! Whether it’s their jobs, their families, the economy, or their retirement - it all adds up to concerns about the future. But one thing is for sure – commerce is the backbone of all we do. No matter what happens, people are always going to be buying things they need for themselves and their families. And they’re always going to be wanting the best deal and the best value around. In addition, E Commerce and online shopping is on the rise. There are more than 1 million new Internet users every day! The Internet has seen explosive growth – from 1.2 billion users in 2006, to 2 billion in 2010 (that’s 1 in every third person in the world who now has Internet access).
And that’s where DubLi comes in. DubLi is a global online shopping portal, and consists of two major components – the retail component and the business opportunity. Dean Mannheimer, Country Manager for DubLi North America, explains ”it is a perfect time for a company like DubLi to position itself in this particular market, at this particular time”.
So let’s take a quick look at the customer focused side of DubLi…
This consists of the DubLi Shopping Mall, and 2 DubLi Auctions – the Xpress Auction and the Unique Bid Auction.
Dean Mannheimer says the purpose of the DubLi Auctions is simply “to bring the best products and brands, the newest products… in a fun, exciting, and entertaining shopping environment”.
Customers have additional confidence because they have the reassurance of the Best Price Guarantee. He states that if customers purchase something from DubLi but find the same item cheaper elsewhere, within 2 weeks of their purchase, DubLi will not only match the price but also better it by 10%.
What’s the difference between the Xpress Auction and the Unique Bid Auction?
With the Xpress Auction, customers will see everything on screen, including product, original price, etc, but they won’t be able to see the latest “current price” until they use 1 DubLi credit. The benefit of this is two-fold: not only can they see the price as it stands in the auction at the moment, but by doing so, they also contribute to driving the price down by 25c (US)! They can then make a decision to buy the product immediately or wait a little longer to see how much further the price will drop. Dean Mannheimer continues: “this group of customers is driving the price down, not up as in other online auctions”. This is known as a ‘Reverse Auction’.
By contrast, each Unique Bid Auction has a time restriction on it. Within that time, customers place bids at ‘Price Points of Interest’, in increments of 25c, each trying to place the lowest unique bid. The excitement is that they don’t know what the lowest unique price bid is (unless they’re the lowest unique bidder). During the auction, a bidder gets an instant message on the shopping portal screen which notifies them as to their position in the ‘race’ – telling them whether their bid is one of the lowest or the lowest, as well as whether their bid is unique or not. This allows customers to strategically decide in which direction to bid, to ensure they’re the lowest unique bidder when the auction closes. Dean Mannheimer adds that the Unique Bid Auction is DubLi’s “longest running auction – it’s very entertaining and one of our most popular auctions”. In fact some high ticket items have been won in this way for very low prices, such as this brand new BMW Z4 valued at $52,000, which sold for $1,106:
What’s the catch? There isn’t one! The question you should ask yourself is: was it money worth spent when Mr Daniel Gibbons (the winner of this BMW) used 1 DubLi Credit (80c) to place the winning lowest unique bid, thus saving himself 97%?
So what are DubLi Credits?
DubLi Credits are simply a ‘passport’ that enables customers to participate in the DubLi Auctions, to drive prices down. Customers can visit the DubLi website any time, but if they want to take part in the Auctions, they’ll need to purchase a minimum of 10 DubLi Credits (currently $8 or €5). So each DubLi Credit costs only 80c (US).
Compare this to annual memberships for Sam’s Club or Costco. On the other hand DubLi customers pay only 80c a time to take advantage of deep discounts up to 90%!
And when first time customers register with DubLi and purchase their first DubLi Credits, they will also each get a $500 resort voucher and a $25 restaurant voucher, simply as a thank you.
But that’s not all – you can share in the DubLi phenomenon as a Business Associate…
DubLi offers one of the best business opportunities around, simply because when people choose to join DubLi as a Business Associate, they’ll earn commission from customer sales in a number of ways. And because DubLi is customer focused, there are 3 methods of acquiring customers: personal customers that are referred to DubLi by each Business Associate and by other customers, organizational customers referred by the team of Business Associates under each Business Associate, and Partner Program customers.
The beauty of this business model is that it’s truly global, online and you don’t have to buy or distribute any stock. Customers will continue to get value and convenience from the DubLi shopping portal, and even more is being added to it over time (such as the new Entertainment Division, about to be launched in 2010). Thus Business Associates will continue to grow their income, and receive between 5% – 27.5% commission on customer purchases and activity, based on which of the DubLi Business Associate packages they choose.
It costs just $175 to register as a Business Associate, and then depending on your personal circumstances and the type of business you wish to grow, there are three packages of DubLi Credits you can choose from. These DubLi Credits are sold on to customers by DubLi, on your behalf, making you immediate profits. Business Associates also receive commission from customer purchases in the DubLi Shopping Mall and Auctions, as well as from purchases of customers referred by Business Associates you have recruited to your business team.
Dean Mannheimer states that “DubLi is one of the most unique business transitions taking place today. It’s simply the best business opportunity that exists today”.
He goes on to say that “When all is said and done we’re going to find books written on this model about a historical event and transition that took place that we get to be able to participate in – if we understand the value and we see what DubLi truly represents for each one of us and each one of our families”.
