  4. 4. What is It is a global online marketing place for Rotarians to conduct business with other Rotarians • The intent is to encourage Rotarians to do business with each other and yet remain outside the scope of the clubs • Bring additional fundraising opportunities • Built as a simple “Craigslist” style exchange, Rotarians can post items or services for sale and also post items that are being sought or wanted, plus 1 identity profile page
  5. 5. Why is it Called started as a web site a few years ago called contacted this site June 2, 2013, and explained because of trademark rules, we had to add D5300 to the name of the web site to be within compliance of their rules. “The addition of D5300 will meet the RI Board of Directors policies regarding the use of the Rotary marks. On behalf of RI, our appreciation goes to you and the leadership of D5300 for your cooperation and making these changes. Best Rotary Regards, Jim Damato, Supervisor Club and District Support, The Americas Rotary International Evanston, Illinois" June 18, 2013

  7. 7. Fundraising • When a club buys a 1 year package they immediately receive a $25 compensation. • Any club member who buys a 1 year package the registered club will receive $25 compensation PLUS $5 bonus because one of their club members purchased. • If a Rotarian outside the registered club buys a package from the club they receive $25. • Renewal revenues are the same for following years

  9. 9. Working With Other Rotarians • Doing business with Rotarians drastically increases the odds of a successful transaction • The common bonds of the 4-way test brings a confidence and fellowship when entering into a business transaction in Rotarian to Rotarian transactions • Not all Rotarians are perfect, however we prefer the odds when dealing with Rotarians

Buy and Sell Worldwide • Even though you may not travel worldwide, we live in a global economy • Rotarians worldwide are looking to source goods and services • Whether you are a business owner, employee, or retired, Rotarians Connect give you the advantage of reaching worldwide Rotarian buyers to sell inventory and surplus items
  11. 11. Why is this important to my Club? • When a club buys an advertising package, it creates an avenue for the club to receive free money anytime a Rotarian purchases an advertising package using their club id number • Each year when the package is renewed, the club will enjoy the same renewal income like the first year.
  12. 12. Why is this important to my District? • For those clubs that for whatever reason may not participate, the District can sell an advertising package to a Rotarian and they receive free money. • The District receives $25 plus $5 if the Rotarian is a member within their District. • The District receives $25 if Rotarian is a member outside their District. • Review “ Complete Distribution of $99.95 Fee” in the back part of this presentation for full details.
