Previous to Pre-Launch: Establish 3Circles Church Communities
Estimated time frame, Spring to Fall 2010
A. Develop basic
3CCC website to introduce us to the rest of the world. [DONE]
B. Purchase SBI
services for lead capture page development and SEO. [DONE]
C. Purchase package for setting up
membership sites to create immediate and recurring revenue
using existing payment processors like Pay Pal and others.
D. Hire law firm [DONE]; incorporate [DONE]; & secure trademarks on slogans of 3CCC [TO BE DONE].
E. Create 3 or
more 3CCC membership levels around the concepts of “Free memberships are
killing the Internet”; and “Commitment through a signed
covenant.” [DONE] Create a 3CCC/member covenant
that encourages an ongoing commitment. [DONE]
F. Create in-house
social networking modules that will support networking among members:
1. Create Wisdom Blog:
“Transform Yourself” [DONE: http://www.3circles.org/transform
2. Create 3CCC Forums [DONE: http://www.3circles.net/yabb ]
3. Create online fellowship via VOIP conference
room [DONE: http://freedom.3circles.net/
4. Setup up meditation rooms using the
same VOIP web conferencing software (communications disabled so people can only listen)
dedicated solely to meditation, providing relaxing meditation music and different backgrounds
(like nature sounds with mandalas or with nature scenes). [TO BE DONE]
5. For added privacy and increased
communications I have built upon my knowledge as a former ISP to develop a unique concept. Members will only be able to access their
3CCC membership site by entering a members only,
password protected, VOIP enabled, web conference room. Once logged in to this members only room,
they then log into their own personal social networking sites, including
those created by 3CCC. Regardless of
what sites a member is logged into, the other members
will not see their private sites or profile info. However, even though each member is surfing
their own sites, they are able to communicate via VOIP and text chat, as well as setup
impromptu meetings via other web conference rooms, Skype, or real world meetings such as a Meetup. [PARTIALLY
G. Set up project
management software with access provided to volunteers who want to help
build our online and offline communities. [DONE: http://payitforwardbiz2biz.com/projects
] Provide a list of projects
to new members [DONE]; establish clear guidelines for those who volunteer for the
various projects [DONE]; provide collaborative tools to assist with collaboration [DONE]; and provide guidelines for how to become a moderator/presenter in our web-based training
rooms. [TO BE DONE]
H. We have a
targeted niche market composed of approximately 10 million Born-Again, Unchurched Christians who are looking for something
more. To reach this market we refuse to
rely on the black-arts of SEO and we won’t purchase keywords or advertising
These methods are increasingly unreliable, due to Google’s
history of changing search algorithms overnight. Google has done
this repeatedly, reversing the fortunes of Internet millionaires
overnight. Instead, we will use tried
and true direct marketing methods, something I’ve done in the past, when I
owned and operated a mail-order seed company. Our
advantage will come from leveraging the efforts of those who join our cause as
affiliate-members. To make this an easy
process I will offer affiliates the ability to purchase Pre-printed post-cards
and mailing lists with their own special code in the return address. Anyone who becomes a member of 3CCC will have
to enter this code, so our affiliates will get credit for that member. [TO BE
Develop a “Media Plan” using Joan Stewart’s Media Planning info [TO BE DONE]; Meet
with her for the one hour consultation that came with the package to utilize that offer [DONE].
a “3CCC Business Portfolio” (3CCC-BP) composed of 3CCC products and outside businesses we’ve found to provide health,
wealth, spiritual or Home-Based Business benefits, offering the 3CCC- BP as a member resource for additional
income (thru commissions). Valuable for helping members make the transition
from a job to a home-based business they can operate
from the community. [PARTIALLY

Community Publishers (books, podcasts, videocasts, pamphlets, etc; we own 10 ISBN's and qualify as bona fide publishers).
f. Collapsible indoor
meditation chambers to create a silent meditation space for busy families.
g. 3CCC Hosting services via our own

K. Create Logo and Stationery (business card,

L. One of our
volunteer projects will be to provide all the necessary profile info for 3CCC
and then ask volunteers to sign up 3CCC on the sites of their choice, gleaned from a list of preferred Social Media sites provide to such members. [TO
M. Setup guidelines for online virtual
retreats and begin them ASAP, so as to train members to meditate

other educational aids that can be used by anyone who volunteers to help man our web-based conference training rooms. [TO BE DONE]

ARE TO BE DONE]:
Time Frame, Fall 2010 thru Winter 2010
A. Do Pre-Launch for 3-6 months
B. Set monthly goals for new
memberships based on March-May PRE, Pre-Launch direct marketing phase.
C. Rely upon Go-To-Webinars and our own web-based conference rooms to keep up
D. Gradual roll-out 3CCC
Presentation Movie, training modules, books and other commissionable products, collaborative tools and projects to
keep up the excitement.
E. Create and sell direct marketing package to members who want to join our affiliate program and sign up new members to earn a monthly recurring income (in addition to earning increased commissions on all 3CCC product sales). Members who join this program will get our high gloss brilliantly colorful post cards, with mailing lists (names, postal addresses and phone number, targeted for their area and gleaned from our master lists of some 10 million Born-Again, unchurched Christians).
F. Create a “Calculate your potential income” web page for members to see
the potential of promoting 3CCC and earning recurring income from members they sign up + commissionable sales.
G. Create a membership drive for our 3CCC Faith-Based Credit Union, outlining the number of members and amount of funds that must be deposited in order for each group of local 3CCC members to qualify as a local credit union. This is extremely important and one of the pillars of our 3Circles Church Communities, enabling us to truly apply the 3Circles Empowerment Principle (as people take their money out of this system’s banks and put it into our own).
ARE TO BE DONE]:
Estimated Time Frame, Spring 2011 thru Fall 2011
A. Coordinate “3CCC Official Launch” with the unveiling of our plans to
host the first real world gathering of 3CCC members and member affiliates at the historic Bedford Springs Resort Spa in Bedford, PA. Invite media, offering to pay the way of one embedded reporter from each media outlet (vetted and chosen by us).
B. At the Bedford Springs gathering announce details of the 3CCC Reality
Series. After seeking potential communitarians in small to medium towns around the USA, we can offer Bedford Springs some unheard of publicity (in exchange for drastically reduced resort fees) if they’ll give us exclusive use of one wing or section of their resort spa for the early elimination rounds aimed at finding a core group of pioneering types who are chosen to build the first 3Circles Church Community. Unlike all other reality shows, cooperation, teamwork, and acts kindness or genuine love provides greater rewards. I think a 3 week elimination period should do, followed by 3 months of filming at the community site, where further eliminations will take place. These core pioneers will then become the leaders to start up simultaneously other 3CCC’s.
Establish Local, Real-World, 3Circles Church Communities[TO BE DONE]:
Estimated Time Frame: Spring 2012 and beyond.
A. Help to connect 3CCC members locally via zip searches of our database;
provide materials to help those members establish a “House
Church” in their locality. Fellowshipping with the larger 3CCC can continue via the web and our conference rooms.
B. Once we have 3 or more local chapters of 3CCC established, with sufficient members and funds to create their own 3CCC Faith-Based Credit Union, we rent Credit Union facilities and open our doors.
C. Establish the first 3CCC, using our Reality TV/Internet TV series as a promotional tool for signing up new members. Through this process we obtain a core group of pioneer types and we assign a team of leaders to seed another 3CCC within 6 months to a year of establishing the first one.
