Term4Sale Bumping Week Begins
If last year you took advantage of “BUMP WEEK” and moved your 3 local postal code listings into better postal codes, and BUMPED out paid listings, you can ignore what follows…

UNLESS!!! You have a Standard License for Compulife ($300 per year).

If you do, PAY ATTENTION!!

Last year, for the first time, we let standard license subscribers (paying the higher fee of $299 per year) purchase an additional 3 local postal codes and for for ONLY $12 each! Paid postal codes listings are normally $15 per year. If you miss this opportunity to increase your number of local postal codes, YOU MISS THAT OPPORTUNITY.

By doubling from 3 to 6 local postal codes you will have 6 postal codes that you can use to BUMP people out of postal codes within 20 miles of you (in rural areas the circle can be bigger – call if that’s you).

Once again, the normal cost of a paid listing is $15 but you get the additional 3 local postal codes for only $12 each (payable as $1 per month for the balance of your current subscription). More important, they can be used to bump which you cannot do with paid postal code listings. $15 paid postal codes are sold on a first come, first serve basis and once you purchase and have a postal code, no one but a local agent, using their local postal code, could force you out. But that can only happen once a year. Once you purchase an additional postal code, it is yours for the calendar year.

The local postal codes are tied to your subscription, and renewals on those are charged at the same time as your subscription. Additional paid postal codes are sold on a calendar year basis.

Can a Personal Use subscriber UPGRADE to a Standard License and get the 3 additional local postal codes. YES YOU CAN. If you want to do that we look at how much time is left on your current subscription and charge you an upgrade fee of $12.50 per month for the balance of the subscription. $12.50 is the normal difference in annual price ($299 – $149) divided by 12. The three additional postal codes would be $3 per month on top of that.

There are other advantages to the standard license, call if you want to discuss it. You should do that BEFORE November 6th.

And if you are in an area where great postal codes are scarce, because the good ones are all full, the week of November 6th would be a great time to make a move and double up on local listings.

And yes, people are making sales from term4sale. You can read about that here:

Testimonials from Compulife subscribers
The Starting Time is 12pm EST
Every year someone complains because someone else beat them to the punch. We have a HARD starting date and time to ensure that this is FAIR for everyone, and no one can complain if someone else beat them to it.

IMPORTANT: Do not call or email with postal code change instructions before 12pm EST on November 6th. If you do your email will be ignored. If you call early you will be told to call later.

Because the phone lines will likely be busy that day, and a lot of the early part of that week, it is BEST to do your homework in advance and email your instructions for changes.

If you are switching postal codes for better postal codes we will need specific instructions. Tell us what postal code you are giving up and which postal code you want in its place. If you don’t know what postal codes you have, email and ask for a list of those postal codes ASAP.

Do Some Preparation In Advance
You can research postal codes at:

Postal Code Analyzer
If you see a postal code that you want, and it’s full, and within 30 kilometers of your physical location, go to the home page of, and check the listing to see who is in it. Put in the postal code, run a quote, then click the “Select and Continue” button to see if any of the agents in that postal code are displaying a toll free number. Either a toll free number, or what appears to be a non-local phone number, is a pretty good clue that that agent is probably buying that listing as an additional postal code (not local). If that is the case then that agent can be bumped. We’ll make the final check but you should assume that you can get it if you want it; just email us those instructions.

If you are a Standard License subscriber, wanting 3 additional local postal codes, say so and let us know which postal codes you want. Use the same instructions as above.

You Have First Chance to Re-buy
Any subscriber giving up a listing, to move that listing to a better local listing, has the first opportunity to re-buy the listing that they just gave up. The cost to re-buy and keep the listing for 2018 will be $15, same price as any other additional postal code. If you do not re-buy the listing, then the listing will be released on January 8, 2018 when we post the new lists of postal codes that are not being renewed.

Do not put your credit card information in any emails that you send us. If you are buying additional local postal codes, or re-buying a previous local listing that you gave up, we will call you to get your credit card (once things cool down; make sure your phone number is in your email). You will need to pay by credit card when we call you, but your request does not need a payment to be locked in. Once again, first come first served.

One Other Way To Get More Local postal Codes
Compulife compensates subscriber referrals for new customers with a FREE local postal code for 2 full years, plus the balance of the remaining year. Refer an agent to try our software and that agent gets 6 free months of software (instead of 4) providing that they do the “Dare To Compare” challenge/tutorial to get the 6 free months (no purchase required). Once again, if your referral does that challenge, to get the free software, then you get a LOCAL postal code FREE for 2 full years, plus the remainder of the current year.

When your FREE period on that postal code ends, you will have first right to renew it as a paid listing. Before that, you will be able to use it as a local postal code to bump. The time to use the bump will still be the first Monday in November.

IMPORTANT: You have until November 6th to make referrals, earn your additional FREE local postal code, and use it to bump on:

Monday, November 6th, 2017 (12pm EST)
If I was an enterprising subscriber, who knows that term4sale is a profitable experience, I would be VERY busy in October referring everyone I can get my hands on. Use the following form to make your referral(s):

Compulife Trial Referral Form
Given the benefit of being able to bump paid listing in your local area, I am surprised that more subscribers do not take advantage of this opportunity. A lot of gold is being left on the table.

The One For Three Guarantee
Those who contact us inquiring about term4sale listings generally want to know what they can expect by way of results. I always say the same thing. For every 3 postal code listings you can expect ONE solid email contact through the system. Some subscribers do better than that, but it is a general rule of thumb. Now I say “email” referring to the contacts that come through the term4sale “agent” list where the consumer completes the email form and it is sent on to the 3 listed agents.

In addition to email contacts, your name and phone number are displayed in the listings. If a consumer calls you directly, and we KNOW some do, then we have no record of those contacts and that is icing on your cake. For the guarantee this does not factor in, simply as we have no way to monitor such activity.

Here’s how the guarantee works:

If you get to the end of December, and you did not have have at least one email for every 3 postal codes you have, we will reduce the cost for you to renew those postal codes for 2018.

EXAMPLE: You have 14 postal codes, three local and 11 that you purchased. For 14 postal codes we expect: 14/3 = 5 contacts (4.67 rounded up). Let’s assume that you had only 3 email contacts (note: we do not count duplicate or BOGUS contacts) On November 15th, we would have invoiced you $165 (11 X $15) for 2017 renewal. However, you really only got the activity we would have expected for 9 total postal codes, which would have been 3 local postal codes, and 6 additionally purchased postal codes. Therefore, we will credit your invoice DOWN to $90 (6 X $15) and give you the same 14 postal codes for 2017. In other words, you will have 5 of those 11 paid postal codes for free.

If you did better than 1 for 3 (many have) then you owe us money. NO, we’re just kidding. This is a minimum guarantee.

IMPORTANT: There are NO REFUNDS, simply a reduced renewal cost for the SAME postal codes for the following year. You can add postal codes, and pay for those, but if you substitute any of those postal codes then the price of renewal for those will still be $15 for the year.

This guarantee is designed to act as a way to retroactively balance out the cost of postal codes listings that are NOT as attractive or not producing.
