As a fairly new player in town, we tend to get a lot of questions from our members and our visitors. As people continue to learn more about America’s Footprints, they discover a platform that is both new and very intriguing, thus igniting the spark of curiosity that inspires many to dig a bit deeper.
However, in today’s fast-paced world where time is a commodity most of us just don’t have, finding the specific answers we seek in under 15 seconds becomes a challenge. And in the race to beat time, we often miss some important facts along the way.
That is why we have put together this list of 10 things you probably didn’t know about America’s Footprints!
1. A lifetime Footprint costs less than one tank of gas
For less than one tank of gas, you can reserve your very own Footprint in your family’s history. But unlike the unleaded stuff, your Footprint will never need refueling. Once you secure it, your Footprint becomes a permanent piece in the timeline of your family’s history.
In other words, your Footprint is a bottomless tank of gas that you can run on…forever.
2. It is 100% private…for as long as you wish
From the moment you sign up, you have complete control over who can view your Footprint, and when.
Unlike social media, and most genealogy platforms, everything you enter into your Footprint is private. No one will ever see the contents of your Footprint until you are ready to reveal them.
3. It is family history…for the future
America’s Footprints has no connection to other ancestry websites, and we are not a family-tree service. We provide a very unique and affordable opportunity that enables you to privately store the poignant moments in your life story, for the purposes of one day passing them down to your children and grandchildren.
We give your story a chance to continue living, long after all of us say goodbye.
4. Unlike the rest, we will never sell your information
Don’t be fooled by our competitors who offer something similar for free. 99% of the time, this is an unethical marketing tactic to obtain personal information about you so they can sell it to 3rd parties who will then begin targeting you.
5. We are committed to making a difference
The world has enough negativity in it, and we believe it’s time to start preserving the moments we are proud of as a generation.
That is why, in addition to helping preserve your stories through a personal Footprint, we: a) spotlight inspiring stories on our blog, b) host an inspirational community on Google+, and c) use the power of voice to spotlight the faith in humanity through our “Make A Difference” spotlight podcast.
6. You gain access to mini-Footprints, for your kids
In addition to your main Footprint, you will also gain free access to what we call “mini-Footprints.” These allow you to track the milestones and moments in your child(ren)’s journey, from your perspective. So that one day, they can once again relive the moments you chose to preserve just for them.
7. We gave away almost $7800 in free memberships in 2015
In 2015, we donated $7780.00 in free lifetime memberships to individuals from all walks of life. Some include baby boomers, patients who are terminally ill, and even those who are simply making a positive difference.
Why do we do this? Because we believe everyone has a story that deserves to be remembered. And we are working hard to make that happen – for everyone.
8. Our customer satisfaction rating stands at 99.98%
Once every three months, and starting in 2014, we regularly conduct surveys of any members who contacted us with questions. Of those who continue to respond, 99.98% have indicated they were “extremely satisfied” with their customer service experience.
And our score hasn’t wavered since we first opened our doors.
In other words, we are here to help support you…all day, every day. You can put your faith in our team to help ensure you aren’t just a customer…but that you’re like family.
9. You can become a lifetime member…for FREE
You have a home. You have a family. And you have to live your life. Financially, we are all strapped for cash. But that doesn’t mean your story is any less important than your friend or neighbor, nor does it mean you shouldn’t have the opportunity to preserve it.
That is why we offer our First Steps membership, giving you basic access to your very own Footprint – 100% FREE for life.
10. We are always evolving…at no cost to you
In 2015, we released over two dozen new Footprint features, in addition to countless website enhancements. We are currently building a completely new design that will be 100% mobile friendly, and anticipate its release in 2016. We will also be adding increased storage capabilities as well.
And virtually every single upgrade we continue to implement comes at NO extra cost to our existing members.
So are you ready to give us a try yet? Everyone has a story that deserves to be remembered in history. Isn’t it time you preserve yours today, for the family of tomorrow?
