    You need to be more careful not to reveal your name to my customers. It makes us look foolish after we invested in having the Trumpia software.

      I agree that is totally unacceptable. It should never happen. No room for mistake at all. But that conerns me with any reseller program. Their names are blasted everywhere on their web pages. Must be easy to just slip up and not make a change or include a variable somewhere and have their name show up.

      I still believe though that Trumpia offers the best back end admin for the end user client and that is very important.

    My main issues are an error message through our Whitelabel system had Trumpia's name in it which may lose us a customer we worked hard to earn. We offer more services but still.. there's a few other things regarding hidden costs I am not happy about as well. Some things were not mentioned up-front.. like the extra cost of using their email servers after they sell the white label as "all inclusive".

    I can understand your concerns. I just started with Trumpia not long ago. I want to get the white label but I need some clients 1st before I drop the amount needed for that. Sorry to hear you might lose a client, that is not good at all. Any idea on how and why they error occurred? Has it been just once or many times?

    So far I like them, but I did not know about the email part, I was told it was included. Good thing I have not switched to white label yet. Is there a way you can add your email server from your domain? So you can just use yours and not pay the extra?

    One thing I found out that I did not like is that to send a auto respond msg at time of opt in. You get charged for 2 text messages and not one. Not sure if its the same in white label. But the opt in person, I tested it myself. Gets one msg saying thanks for joining, you will get blah messages a month, and you can opt out at any time. Then your auto respond msg goes out. So boom 2 text per opt in. I had to change my pricing just because of that. BLAH! But I am still working on a pricing model(cant seem to get one I really like yet) so I guess that is the up side to it.

    Yeah be sure to ask about the email ACTUAL cost (They told us $150 a month plus credit cost) as well as about the monthly fees they impose on you at $4 per keyword rate (minimum of 10 I believe) if you use them or not you pay monthly for those keywords. So "No Monthly Fees" my foot.

    That is different from what I was told. I was told keywords would be $2.00 a keyword a month and I can buy them as I need them as well as delete them if I do not need them.

    Congratulations Tim.

    Though you seem to be the most feature rich, I think your cost to get in and pricing are way too high. No offense Tim that's just my opinion. But it seems to be working for you. I'm sure the fees are because you want to reward your sales associates well. That is commendable if that's the purpose. I'm all for people getting paid.

    Good to see..

    I have a question about fundamental mobile practices at Trumpia vs others such as Avid, Lime, etc..

    It seems the majority of other providers do not deduct my message credits allotted to my clients until they are actually used.

    Trumpia's practice is to remove them from my allotment as soon as someone goes on a plan. They move the entire amount from my allotment to the my client. Since most do not use all of their credits in a given month I lose this overflow benefit. It forces me to buy more credits much sooner than i would have to with other providers.

    In theory, I could buy 100000 credits and sell 100 thousand minute plans in one month. I would be forced to buy another 100000 the next month to fund their plans even thought not one text was ever used?

    If I made this confusing let me know.

    Cheers!

      Don't buy credits or pay fees. Purchase and own your own software and go to the gateway directly. No minimums, no limits when you grow. Paying for keywords, extremely old school.

      Fancy websites, tons of sales people, fancy interfaces are all hogwash. It works but while it is working it's reaching into your back pocket at the same time.

      I have seen about 7 different independent programmers/marketers besides myself who offer a complete SMS Platforms that won't drill you in the backside.

      Buy the platform(reasonable cost) and you owe NO ONE anything ever. Your only cost is the ACTUAL cost of the messages. Did I mention no - minimums.

      PM me for help in this area and a demonstration. No opt-in, just a real platform for sale with your choice of the color of label you want.

        Hi Scarab,

        Thanks for the info. I just bought in to Trumpia today as they have just entered the Canadian market. I don't have enough posts to pm so if you could email me greatzen at hotmail any info about software that you recommend and about the gateway then that would be great.

        Thanks

    Its is sort of funny that many of those businesses touting mobile do not actually have a mobile enabled website.

    Do they really believe in their products?

    I was looking into Trumpia today. I was avoiding it because of what I heard were the high costs.

    But, I saw this "www.trumpia.com No Setup & Monthly Fee, No Contract" in their adwords ad so I was looking closer.

    Now, I don't believe I will do business with a company that misrepresents themselves like this.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Baronetta,

    With all due respect I encourage you to talk with them directly as they may have some special programs that include no setup and not to make make a blanket judgement based on an adwords campaign. I'm finding there is no perfect platform and each of us have to set their own selection criteria.

    What I am seeing are specials with a monthly recurring fee with 10,000 texts included plus 100 keywords. They reserve the right I'm sure to change up their specials and it may have been a one time but doesn't hurt to ask.

    I would encourage anyone evaluating these platforms to pencil it out on a spreadsheet factoring in monthly platform costs, keywords, emails, etc. Sometimes that great deal only pencils out if you do not grow beyond 25 clients. Don't forget the intangibles such support, stability of company, and commitment to improving their platform.

    Good luck in your search..

    Cheers

      Tim,

      Thanks for the update..nice deal no setup and no licensing fee. How does the no licensing fee work? Any gotchas? This is 180 degrees from previous white labels for Trumpia. Sounds very interesting.

      Cheers

    No setup for Trumpia? Then what do you call the upfront cost of $2,700?
    $500 for the white label and 100,000 credits at 0.022 cents. To me that is a setup fee, since you have purchase that to get in to the white label with Trumpia.

    What's with all this blatant self promotion Trumpia?

    I'm seeing too much of it all over the offline forum. You are more than welcome to participate in the forums and have your product listed in your signature but stop posting threads that are only posted for the sole purpose of advertising your services.

    Have a quick read through this thread - it reads like an advertisement... a poor one at that.

      Follow up to my previous post re Trumpia.

      Ahem... I missed a huge opportunity because Trumpia could not meet the deadline, in spite of assurances they could. Now I am trying to get a refund... and the answer to my first request was "no." I will try again.
