Hurricane Florence Slamming The SE United States in Miscellaneous

7 days ago

I would like to remind everyone that Hurricane Florence is currently hammering the SE Coast of the US. The coastal areas in several states are being inundated with high winds and flooding from the storm surge and rain. Particularly hardest hit right now is southeastern North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina as Florence moves slowly inland.

My area of South Carolina is in the storm's path later tonight and tomorrow.

Please keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers and if you are in these areas, stay safe.

College Football and Uber-Picks in Eager Zebra #Eager Zebra #Rewardical #TripleClicks

11 days ago

Thank you Veronika and Hans-Peter for your words of encouragement. I'm even happier now since I just noticed that Gery liked my post. I'm pretty sure this is the first time this has happened to me.

As for sharing on my social media, I'm working on that right now, but like FaceBook, some of the others that I participate in won't allow certain things to be shared. I'm trying to figure out how to share my happiness without violating their terms of service,

I'm sure I'll figure it out in a little while.

Thanks again,

Rich Richardson

Getting started in Getting Started #Getting Started

14 days ago

There are many ways you can get started with that amount of money. My first question, though, is have you read the section on "Getting Started With Your SFI Business?" There is a lot of information there to help you get started. Second, have you talked to your sponsor about how best to get started?

Those are the first two things I would recommend. Hope this helps.

Congratulations Keshav. It's always nice to start your day off with a win, isn't it. One of the first things I do every morning is check my email to see if I won during the night.

Have a greater day.

Not yet received money in PayPal. On 23rd. in Compensation #Compensation

29 days ago

Hi Sanjay,

Although other affiliates may have experienced similar situations, this really is a matter you should submit to Support. They are the only ones that can tell you about your commissions. Just submit a ticket. They are very responsive.

Good luck,

Thanks for sharing this Agnes. Believe it or not, I truly needed that today. It's just not been one of my best, but thanks to you and thanks to Rose, it's a little better now. After I got over the tears that were starting to form, I got a great big smile on my face. Thanks again.

YOU won the 3,000 RT Rocket Box in Getting Started #Astro Auctions #Contests #Getting Started

about 1 month ago

There have been several posts about the multiple Rocket Box winners and it appears there are still a couple of programming bugs that need to get sorted. From reading the posts, it looks like the Rocket Box should be shared by multiple winners, but as in your case, and others, it shows that all were won by one person. I believe you will find that you are supposed to be sharing the RB winnings with two other players, despite the email you received. That is one of the bugs that I'm sure will be fixed very soon.

I might be wrong, but I think not. Hope this helps.

A problem purchasing T credits in Pricebenders

about 1 month ago

Hey Al.

I see what you mean. The same thing is happening for me. I looked at several items but didn't have the option to buy. The other thing I noticed was every item had "This item is only for affiliates with a rank greater than or equal to " in the description, which didn't used to be there.

Any auction with a "Replay" button is one that you bid on. You should also see the prizes you won on the left side, if you have claimed them.

Ways Of Reducing Inactivity Of Affiliates / Members in Team Building #PSA #Sponsor #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Hi again, Joseph,

You are absolutely right, especially with your first rule. This should be the number 1 rule for any business. Sadly, we know it's not the case. We in SFI should all do the best job we can to make sure we are always seen as an honest and ethical business.

Regards,

Assign Forfeited CSAs To Sponsors! in Suggestion Box #CSA #Sponsor #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Hi Joseph,

Your idea has merit, but I think it's probably been looked and considered already by SFI. The forfeited CSA's become the Second Home CSA's that team leaders receive each month. Here is a very detailed discussion of the policy and process: www.sfimg.com/Support/Solution?id=164317&referrer=search

Keep coming up with new ideas. That's what makes this business so great - the collective knowledge of people all around the world.

Why Free Advertising Seem NOT To work For SFI? in Marketing #Getting Started #PSA #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Hey Tommie,

I just got start about a week ago, so I'm learning the online advertising game as much as I am advertising my business. Right now, I've learned about, joined, and started posting in several safelists and one traffic exchange. It would be nice to see a better return on my time investment, but I know it's just a numbers game. Eventually, I will find the Diamonds I am looking for - or who are looking for me.

BTW - we are neighbors, sort of, I am in Columbia, SC.

Why Free Advertising Seem NOT To work For SFI? in Marketing #Getting Started #PSA #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Hey Tommie,

Free advertising is working for me. Keep inspiring us to greatness.

Note for Jeep...you have to have any original ads approved by SFI Corporate before you can use them and you have to be at least a Silver Team Leader to do so. This is per Items 21 and 27 of the Affiliate Agreement that you agreed to when you signed up. Not to rain on your parade, but it's the rules set out by SFI to protect everyone's business.

Badge "Team builder" in Ask Gery

about 1 month ago

Hi Mirjana,

The consensus seems to be that you will get the badge for winning a qualifying item in Astro Auctions, and I agree. That is exactly what happened to me. I won AA for S-Builder and received the badge (see below). I'm really happy about it.



Kind regards,

Asto Auctions Excitement in Astro Auctions #Astro Auctions #Rewardical

about 1 month ago

I won my first Astro Auction just a few days after they were introduced. I misunderstood some of the mechanics of the auctions, so I ended up using more T-Credits than I planned on. I liked the auctions, but I just couldn't get terribly excited about them. Then I learned about all the Constellations Prizes you can win just by entering the auctions. This increased my excitement, especially on the day I won 1000 Rewardicals, so I enter them on a daily basis now.

Today I decided to try to win another auction. I reviewed the winning bids from some of the past auctions for the item I decided to bid on, then placed my bid. I really didn't expect to win, but a short time later I received the email that I was the winner. Well, the excitement level started rising, didn't it! As I replayed the auction, like we all do, and I kept winning hundreds of Rewardicals, do you think my excitement rose? Better believe it did! Then came that magical moment when my name popped up as the winning bidder. I think I won the farm on this one.



Astro Auctions! Get excited! I am!

Brain Sprint answer in trivia questions in Suggestion Box #Eager Zebra

about 1 month ago

Other people may have encountered similar situations, but this question, and any questions about issues with the games should be submitted to SFI with a support ticket. People can tell you if they have experienced the same situations, but only SFI Support can correct any problems.

Hope this helps.

I Built My SFI Business Entirely On The Internet! in Getting Started #Getting Started #Marketing #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Hey Tommie,

I finally listened to you and took your advice. I searched Google for some free advertising sites, just like you said; I found a text ad from our Marketing Aids, just like you said; I added my keycode to my gateway and started submitting the ad; just like you said.

Within a couple of days I sponsored my first affiliate from my free ad.

Free advertising works. Just like you said!

Thanks Tommie. Keep inspiring us to reach Crown, just like you (said)!

Hey Bob,

Max is exactly right. This function already exists as one of the QuickFilters on your Genealogy report. Just click on the QuickFilters at the bottom of the sort/filter panel and it will be the first selection on the drop-down list, as illustrated below.



Hope this helps.
