Business Membership

In addition to the free services of site registration, we also offer unique site features through a Business Membership arrangement. This page explains the features of Business Membership, how it differs to the Membership we offer to individuals (through Personal Membership), the cost and how to join.

Why Join?

Business Membership is required if you operate a business and wish to use the community tools on this site (Forum and Blogs). Business Membership provides ALL the features and tools of Personal Membership, with modifications that allow your site Profile to be presented in the name of your Business, rather than a personal name.

To add value to your Membership, you will also receive a free promotion/link on the TriathlonOz home page at the time of joining. This is a permanent slot to promote the most recently joined Business Member. This promotion consists of a link to your Business Profile page, which you will have access to create online at the time of joining so we encourage you to be prompt in the setup of this whilst the opportunity remains active.

Opportunities to purchase advertising slots, either on the site or within our e-newsletter, are also available to our Business Members if desired.

Business Member-Only Entitlements

Using TriathlonOz as a Business Member will change the appearance of how the site displays information to you due to all the inbuilt features designed to provide the optimal experience.

The following list of Members-only features includes most of the same features of Personal Membership but with allowance for using business names in the Profile, plus some additional features designed purely to ensure all your site interactions are presented as "advertisements" for your business. Stats tracking is also provided.

  • Your own Profile Page - setup info about yourself, your business, your products/services. Customised Business Member Profile includes Location Map, Link to your Website, your Logo, Contact Numbers, plus a full page of text. This page automatically creates indexes to your Blogs as you create them, and any Classifieds Ads you have running.

  • Create Blogs as often as you like. Publish photos, embed video clips and use Tags to pin your blogs to relevant Tips & Techniques topic pages.

  • Your Profile is found from the Members List in the Business Members section. The list provides a link to each Members' Profile Page.

  • When you include a "Members Reward" statement in your Profile, this will also feature on your Profile Page, plus it will be published on our Members Rewards page.

  • A Promotional Footer is automatically included to any post you make in the Forum. The Business Member Footer displays your Logo and contact details with tags to link others to your Business Member Profile Page, your Blogs, your Dealer Ads in Classifieds (if any), and your Website.

  • If you've received a private message from one of our Members, you'll see a flashing icon in your Member toolbar. You can also opt-in to receive an additional email alert from your My Home. Business Members should ensure they only respond in this message system, for if they send unsolicited messages via Member-Message to Personal Members, this would breach Australian Spam Regulations.

  • You may opt-in to receive emails containing Forum content to all posts you participate in. This avoids the need to view the website to read your site correspondence.

  • All our Members (both Personal and Business) see/get discounted pricing (currently 5% discount) on all listed items in the TriathlonOz Shop. Please feel welcome to buy individual volumes or in bulk.

  • Free Australia-wide courier delivery for orders over $125

  • When your Membership is processed, you'll receive an email confirming when you new profile is ready for you to setup. This will contain all the necessary instructions to access the tools to customise your Member Profile Page, and explain ways to utilise the Member features. We'll also send you a Business Membership Package (Membership Card, Sticker, Mousemat) in the snail mail.
