What is the value of the tool and all of the resources I receive every month?

A Club goal is to provide significant value to its members. Our accountants did the math for you. We deliver much more than just a new innovation tool every month. When considering the value of all the resources, including tool, webinars, newsletters and other resources, the savings are significant. Depending on the subscription plan, members can save from $375 to $2,990 per month. Annual savings range from $375 to $3,588 per year.

How does the Club define tools?

We have found that many people define the word “tools” differently.  Sometimes people mistakenly define “techniques” as tools. Tools should be some kind of physical object that can be touched or held in your hand, like a hammer or a wrench. Techniques are often a method or technique for applying a tool.  Our club will not offer a “book” since they are easy to find via bookstores or the internet. On occasion some tools will include a companion book.

How are the tools formatted and categorized?

Each month members get a tool in one of the 7 convenient formats:

  1. Card Decks: IDEO’s Method Cards, Ask Einstein or KnowBrainer
  2. Software: Thought Office, Mind Manager
  3. Mobile: iPodBrainer, Innovation Activator
  4. Music CDs: Innovative Brain Music
  5. Audio CDs: Healthy Brain Kit
  6. DVDs: Decorate-to-Innovate
  7. Posters: Formulate-to-Innovate, Quotemplations
  8. Games: ThinkCube, Bright Ideas

This does not mean you get 7 tools each month! You get one tool in a format selected by the Club’s expert panel. If members do not own an iPod, a tool of equal or greater value will be substitued.

How much are the actual tools really worth?

The average retail price of the tool members receive each month is much more than the subscription fee of $60-$98 per month. Some tools retail for nearly $200 while other may cost less than $100. The average retail value of each tool is about $100.

Will I know in advance what tool will be delivered each month?

We have found that many people like surprises, and we intend to surprise members every month with new or interesting tool.We also know that some people do not like surprises! However, we encourage members to keep an open mine and welcome each surprise as a gift of inspiration for innovation. We have published a partial list of tools we are considering, but we are always on the lookout for more tools. Feel welcome to suggest tools by emailing toolclub@solutionpeople.com

How much does it cost for the shipping and handling (S&H) fees?

It depends on the size and weight of the tool or package we send. The typical S&H cost is $8-$17 per month for shipments in the USA. International fees will range from $15-$40 or higher.  Your confidential credit card information will be kept on file so the shipping amount can be deducted from your MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover card.  A receipt will be emailed to you with the final amount. Members are responsible for notifying the club of address changes. Some tools and resources will be provided via digital download and there may be now shipping and handling costs for that particular month.

How do the webinars work and when are they scheduled?

Members can participate in one Tool Club group webinar per month. Webinars are also recorded and archived for members who are unable to join a live webinar. The webinar led by an innovation expert and/or tool creator. Webinars are typically 60-90 minutes long and require internet access and phone connection. All members are encouraged to join the webinar at the same time. Members will be notified of the scheduled webinar via email. Exact times will vary depending on the geographic location of the experts or tool creators. Members of the “Ten Tool Team Clubs” can have some webinars scheduled privately for their team.

How do I connect with other members via the Social Network Community?

Members may already be connected via internet-based social network such as FaceBook, MySpace or Linkedin. Our Club is currently using the business-focused www.linkedin.com service and is continually evaluating services. Members will receive a personal invite to join Club Founder Gerald Haman’s Linkedin professional network, which is one of the world’s largest Linkedin network.  Relationships can also be developed by participating in the webinars and podcasts.

Can you provide more details on the value of each membership plan option?

How does the Ten Tool Team Membership Plan work?

The greatest results can come from a team of people who collaborate to learn how to use the tools. The most significant value occurs when a team uses the same tool to collaborate-to-innovate.  A common team size is ten and they do not need to be at the same location. The investment of just $6,000 per year or $60 per month per person can yield significant dividends. Each additional person that is added to a team will also cost $60 plus S&H.

Can people cancel memberships or get refunds?

Member Satisfaction is Important.
Members may cancel their membership at anytime and receive a full refund for the remaining months left of their subscriptions. We cannot accept returns of tools or resources that have already been delivered to members. The risk is minimal and your rewards can be phenomenal if you join the club and use the tools.

Members are encouraged to keep track of the value of the ideas they generate and implement so they can demonstrate an accurate ROI (Return On Ideas). An investment of less than $100 per month only needs to help you generate one solution worth $100 to yield an ROI.  Time is money. Therefore, we also encourage members to track of the value of the time they save or gain as a result of using the tools. Tracking time can significantly increase the ROI.
