New Compensation Plan and CSA Ratings in Ask Gery #CSA #Leadership #Team Building

2 months ago

Thank you, Chris. If the persons liking the multiple answer posts would stop, then maybe it wouldn't happen
so much because the one posting will understand that "Readers" will not react to their post, but ignore it.
Worse is when they answer after Gery, himself, has answered it.

For the same reason, I read the forum but don't post unless I need to or I know the answer is already posted
by another affiliate.

New Compensation Plan and CSA Ratings in Ask Gery #CSA #Leadership #Team Building

2 months ago

Would EVERYONE, except Gery, please read my "original forum post" and then read your answer?...hmmm
Most of your answers have nothing to do with my original post. Plus, after being with SFI for 2 years, wouldn't
you assume I had already read what all of you are posting?

This has come up in many forum posts in the past...READ THE ENTIRE POST before you respond.
Example: Gery, himself, answered my question...
Why would affiliates even post ANYTHING after Gery's answer if it was not a subsequent question that
pertained to my post?

SMH....just as they say "think before you speak", PLEASE!...think before you post.

I am not being mean, but being practical and adult here...READ, READ, READ...please!!!

Suggestions for my two problems in Suggestion Box #PSA

3 months ago

Milorad, you keep referring to "salary" and "pay based on hours worked"...SFI is a business opportunity,
not a paid salary or hourly "job". This mindset only creates an unnecessary stumbling block for yourself and your
signups. Just my thoughts, but I see my investment as an investment in My SFI Business. As for the amount you
invest, set yourself a budget and stick to it...that is what I have done.

Be patient and see how the New Compensation Plan plays out for you.

New Compensation Plan and CSA Ratings in Ask Gery #CSA #Leadership #Team Building

3 months ago

With the new Compensation Plan regarding additional Co-Sponsors for each affiliate,
do all CSA's, regardless of number of Co-Sponsors, have opportunity to evaluate all
of their Co-Sponsors each month? Or will they be limited only to their original
Co-Sponsor? I am asking this because I have already had communication with a few
of my new CSA's who welcomed my newsletter.

T-time game to be change to rewardical game in Suggestion Box

3 months ago

Not a good idea, in my opinion. Many new affiliates who have limited funds need the T-Credits from T-Time to help them earn VP's. There are enough changes already that award Rewardicals.

support for btl,Stl and gtl for team leader,,, in Team Building #VersaPoints

3 months ago

Consejo, I think you are misunderstanding this. If you go to your To Do List, it explains that you will receive 100 VP for each PSA who reaches each of these ranks.
Example: You have a PSA who reaches Executive Affiliate
You receive 100 VP
This same PSA reaches Bronze Team Leader
You receive another 100 VP for a total of 200 VP for that one PSA
Hope this clarifies this for you.

Gery, should I tell her not to use the Join My Team link? And is there a link for the Affiliate Center if she logs back in as an ECA?

Earning Commission With Criteria. in Getting Started

4 months ago

Avik, refer to : (on black menu bar) Income, then Compensation Plan
you will see that it states:
"SFI's powerful Direct Commission program works like this: each time one of your Personally Sponsored Affiliates (PSAs) OR Personally Referred Members (PRMs) places an order at any of our Zing Network properties, you earn 45% of the CV.

And once you sign up a member or affiliate, they become your customer for life!* SFI takes care of all order processing, product shipments, and customer service at no cost to you, and pays you a Direct Commission for every order placed by your members and affiliates for life!*

TIP: You can find the Direct Commission (DC) you can earn for any product by checking on that product's details page on a given Zing Network site. The DC (Direct Commission), CSC (Co-Sponsor Commission), EP (Executive Pool), CV (Commission Volume), and VP (VersaPoints) are included in each product's description."

Also: "Qualification: Affiliate"
I hope this helps.

whats a good way to lead a team in Miscellaneous #Leadership #Marketing #Team Building

5 months ago

Joseph, there are multiple ways you can build and lead a team to success. Each person has to find their own leadership style first. Some 1) will wait for person to ask questions, instead of provide information first; 2) will overwhelm new signups with too much information to quickly; 3) will have a regularly scheduled pattern of communication and support; 4) will provide incentives in addition to SFI's income rank rewards, such as contests and/or drawings.

I would say to start first with your communication.
1. Be brief, yet informative and supportive in your Welcome Letter.
2. Send a Team Newsletter through SFI Team Mail weekly, bi-weekly or monthly (as YOUR time permits).
3. Let SFI get the affiliate started with LaunchPad and the E365 Contest.
4. Email them weekly in regards to their progress and any tips you may have after reviewing their Affiliate Snapshot information.
Then, as your budget permits, begin providing contests and drawings and other incentives. For example:
1. Monthly VP Contest
2. Weekly Activity Drawing
3. Team Co-Op
4. T-Credit rewards for achievements

What I did was listen to what my affiliates were saying from my beginning with SFI. They expressed their concerns and financial restrictions. I tried to remedy these concerns and restrictions with my contests, drawings and incentives.

Do some brainstorming...you will find your own personal style.

Should I remain opted into Opti-Build, or back out until I have more active PSA's? in Team Building #Leadership #Sponsor #Team Building

5 months ago

I want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to express your thoughts on my dilemma.
Thanks to my fellow SFI'ers, I have made a decision: I am going to remain opted in at 50%. When I do
finally lead 4 more PSA's to the DD position, then I will change my opt in to 100%.

After much thought and reading your posts several times, I have concluded that
1. My team needs me to keep motivating them as I have always tried to do.
2. My team members will follow my lead as their leader and do as I do.
3. As I always remind my team in our newsletters: As A Team We WILL Succeed!!!

Again, thanks for all the support and help!
Sincerely,
Mare
