Hi P.K.R.

We do not see the CSA ' emails in the VP ledger because we are not theirPSAs. Go to your Genealogy and click on Communications. Go to the green sections. There you will find in numerical order the CSAs' emails.

I hope this helps.

With my knees down and repentant heart. in Miscellaneous #Getting Started #Marketing

1 day ago

Hi Nkechi,

I am sure, like me, many affiliates figured out that your brother was not the original writer. I did continue to read it because it was interesting enough to bookmark.

Except for him accessing your computer and your SFI account you can stand tall. Most of us leave our computers or cell phones on all day. We step away, to take care of other developments, and it is easy for an intruder to do what he did.

Remind your brother he needs to own this. What he did is called plagiarism. He stole and published a literary work that was not his. He should have given the original source which he failed to do.

Forgive him and yourself. Move on! Good luck with your business.

20 VP Daily ? in VersaPoints #VersaPoints

2 days ago

Hi Doru Loan,

The affiliates have posted how to earn RTs. I hope this helps you redeem them for VPs, etc
- Click on your RW tab
- It will show you how many RTs you have
- If you have 12 VPs you will need to redeem 8 more for 20 VPs
- Click on the horizontal bar and move the cursor to the left until you have 8 VPs
- You will then see how many RTs you need to redeem to get 8 VPs.
-Click redeem RTs

I hope this helps when you have RTs you want to redeem for whatever you desire.

All the best with your business.

Net neutrality is ending and is affectin published sites in Marketing #Marketing #Sales

5 days ago

Hi Stephen,

Here is an answer to your question.

Net Neutrality means that Internet service providers may not discriminate between different kinds of content and applications online. It guarantees a level playing field for all Web sites and Internet technologies.
On December 21, 2010, the F.C.C. approved a compromise that would broadly create two classes of Internet access, one for fixed-line providers and the other for the wireless Net.

Can somebody shed some light on this please... in Miscellaneous #PSA

Hi Ria,

I have been where you are. It is not a pleasant feeling. You give your best effort and all you have day after day, sometimes month after month. No indications are ever given by the affiliates that they plan to opt out. For whatever reason, it just happens.

I hope you can find out what really happened to the affiliate.

Do not take it personally and remember Some will! Some won't! So what! Someone is waiting!

I hope to see that you have eventually earned STL. All the best with your business!

I hope my answer helps you understand the VP transfer. Good luck with your business.

On this we are all Struggling with this Method. Right? in VersaPoints #Sales #Team Building #VersaPoints

15 days ago

Hi Alvin,

I feel you! But, for me, I will requalify my rank every month and buy as many PSAs that I can afford. With the new compensation package, I know I will find those previously frustrated worker EAs who finally qualified with their 1500 VPs. Then I can help them qualify for BTL and beyond. That is one of my many ways of getting to STL and beyond.

I wish you well with your business!

When is the best time to invest monetarily in SFI ? in Marketing #Getting Started #Marketing #Sales

20 days ago

Hi Praise,

A good time to invest monetarily is when you do not have enough Versa points to qualify or requalify for EA, BTL, etc.

Due to the many initial advantages of their first To-Do-List, most affiliates should be able to qualify for EA within their first month of joining SFI. That is your first level.

To guarantee 1500 VPs and EA status every month, if you can afford to do so, set up an Auto-Delivery of 125 TCredits ($36.25). You also get 32 Rewardical Tokens.

Success is on a learning curve so each affiliates SFI success will depend on their willingness to read and learn.

All the best with your business!

Which way do I go? in Getting Started #VersaPoints

21 days ago

Hi George,

I would go for the sure thing which is BTL. Put yourself in a position where you can control your destiny and SFI business. As much as you have confidence in your recruiting abilities there is more of a guarantee that you can requalify as a BTL than recruiting affiliates with a Prestige Domain.

Good luck with your business!

Hi Alipo,

You are right about the vacation mode accumulated VP streak not being affected. What will be affected are some badge streaks. Those streaks will go to zero and the affiliates will have to start new streaks when they deactivate vacation mode.

Take Your Time To Get To The Next Level! in Getting Started #Getting Started

26 days ago

Hi Bruce,

The saying is, "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." Not only should we plan but we should visualize while planning. Daily, weekly, monthly and yearly planning can set up a good five-year plan or longer.

Also, will is a better verb than shall because it conveys a stronger sense of duty. (www.grammar-duty.com) I visualize will as I am committed and shall as maybe I will or will not commit,

EA Requalification in Getting Started

26 days ago

Hi Caleb,

Please do not consider yourself a coward. In business, like life, there will be good times and there will be bad times.
What you need to do is never give up, and forget about being "scared." Figure out a way to personally gain strength through self-confidence.

A Winston Churchill quote is, "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

These have been happening to me recently in Miscellaneous

about 1 month ago

Hi Ebuka,

You have answers from Affiliates Johan, Michael, and Sead. Hopefully, they solved your "chat" problem.

I will add if you are using an android device (cell phone) delays can be a common problem. If your device is on low power or power save the device limits the amount of notifications sent to you in order to save energy.

Apps that preserve your battery life cause delays. If you put your device in sleep mode you are automatically cutting yourself off from your services and notifications.

Another way is to manually stop your apps from running in the background.

I hope you are eventually able to chat asap with your PSAs/CSAs. All the best with your business.

Sorry! Practice Does Not Make Perfect! in Inspiration/Testimonials #Getting Started

about 1 month ago

Hi Bruce,

Perfection is in the "eyes of the beholder." I awake perfect and I retire perfectly. Each person is an individual and no shoe fits all. What one person thinks is perfect for them might not do justice for someone else.

My question is how can someone, besides our creator define perfect? Yes, it can be done numerically, competitively.etc. that is objective. Other than that it is subjective and that is left to the creator not humans who think they know better for others.

As Affiliate Michael and the late legendary NFL coach Lombardi quoted, Perfect practice makes perfect. (objective) Yes and followed by a Green Bay Packers Super Bowl. (perfect)

Also as Affiliate Nafisa posted, is not 10/10 perfect? (objective) Yes and perfect.

Thanks, Bruce, but I will never let anyone define, their perceived perfection for me.

Good luck with your business, Bruce.

12 or 24 ? in Getting Started #Rewardical #TCredits

about 1 month ago

Hi Bensaad,

Great posted question. It is one that I can understand why you and many other Affiliates (I included) are confused about.
If you are referring to Milestone Shares this should help you. If not, I stand to be corrected.

Q: If I've been earning Milestone Shares at the 10x rate as an EA and then advance to BTL a few months later (which bumps the rate up to 12x), how are the total Milestone Shares due to me calculated?

Looking back one year, you'll receive shares at the 10x rate for the months you were an EA...and at the 12x rate for the months you were a BTL. If within that year you advanced further yet, say, to STL for a couple months, you would earn some shares at the 14x rate, too.

"400 Bad Request " in Eager Zebra #Contests #Eager Zebra #TCredits

about 1 month ago

Hi Cyriacus,

Affiliates have posted possible solutions to your "400 Bad Request" problem.

Affiliate Zoran steered you in the right direction, but, since you have not posted if the problem has been resolved, I thought I would post this on the Forum for you and others.

HTTP Error 400 Bad request
What is Error 400
The Web server (running the Web site) thinks that the data stream sent by the client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) was 'malformed' i.e. did not respect the HTTP protocol completely. So the Web server was unable to understand the request and process it.

It almost always means bad programming of the client system and/or the Web server.

Fixing 400 errors - general
There is a low-level problem in the client or the Web server or both. 95% of the time this is because of a problem on the client system e.g. there is something unstable on your PC running the Web browser.

Is your PC secure ?. If your PC is not well-protected, then all kinds of problems may occur - including HTTP 400 errors. If you run Windows, stay up-to-date with automatic security updates from Microsoft and possibly consider getting a registry cleaner. Always have good anti-virus and spyware protection. Invest in a hardware firewall if you can afford one. Be sensible surfing the Web - block pop-up windows and avoid bad sites. If your PC security is compromised, then Web traffic out from your PC to the Internet may be secretly corrupted by malware (spyware, viruses, etc.) running on your PC. This can be difficult for you to detect.

Have you installed web-based software ?. Some social networking and games sites ask you to download and run software on your PC so you can interact with other people on the Internet directly (without using your Web browser). This software, if badly written or even criminal, can corrupt all HTTP traffic from your PC. Getting rid of that defective software can be difficult. At worst you may have to reinstall your operating system again (possibly losing all your personal data on your PC if you do not have backup).

How stable is your Internet connection ?. If you have recently changed ISPs or your ISP is very slow or unreliable, then Web traffic from your PC out to any site on the Internet may be corrupt. Your ISP may have reconfigured some of their setups (e.g. introduced new proxy servers or caching) that is causing some instability. A possible sign of problems here is if you can not easily browse the Web site of your ISP. You can also try to check that the Web site you are actually visiting is the one you think you are visiting. For example, you may have a DNS problem. You can check this using a ‘ping’ test. A DNS problem may be caused by your ISP or may be on your own system e.g. in a ‘hosts’ file.

Do you get the error on more than one Web site ?. If you get the error on lots of Web sites, this indicates the problem is on your PC, not on those sites.

Do you get the error using more than one browser ?. If you have two or more Web browsers installed on your PC and the behavior is not the same (one Web browser gives an HTTP 400 error visiting a site, another Web browser does not give the 400 error visiting the same site), then one of your browsers may be defective. Try to find an upgrade or security fix for the problem browser. If you recently changed some configuration options in the problem browser, try reversing the change to see if that helps.

Do you get the error on big Web sites ?. If you get the problem on quite a small site, visit some of the bigger sites like Amazon, eBay, Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo. If you get the problem only on small sites, it indicates a problem with only those sites or the traffic from your PC to those sites.

Do you get the error on simple URLs ?. If you get a problem with a long complicated URL (such as www.xxx.com?PHPrequest=643&value=dres&cookies=No) but not with a shorter simpler URL for the same site (such as www.xxx.com), this can indicate a problem with the Web server on the site you are trying to visit. This is not conclusive evidence but is a good starting point. Contact the owners of the Website and describe the problem to them. You may find for example the problem occurs with POST methods (you are both submitting data to the Website and retrieving data from the Website), but not with getting methods (you are only retrieving data from the Website).

Do you have a cache problem ?. Try clearing your cookies, browser cache and browsing history in your Web browser. Disable or remove any third-party caching or ‘web accelerator’ software you installed. Then try rebooting your PC and any firewall/router you use to connect to the Internet. That may not fix the error, but at least may eliminate any problem due to old settings on your PC.

What has changed since you started getting the HTTP 400 problem ?. In general, terms, think about what has changed on your PC since you first started seeing the problem. This may cover any of the items mentioned above. Work backward and see if undoing those changes makes any difference.

So there are a lot of things that you can check on your own PC. If you contact the owners of the Web site giving you the HTTP 400 error and they say "We have lots of other users who do not have your problem - so there must be something wrong with your PC", they are right most of the time - and you can not expect them to be interested in fixing your own PC problems. However if they know there is a problem with their Web site, they should hopefully tell you so and tell you when they plan to fix the problem.

PSA , and Personally-Referrred Members in Sales #PSA #Sales #TripleClicks

about 1 month ago

Hi Lilia,

It could be that CSAs and PSAs are SFI Affiliates. PRMs are Tripleclicks and Rewardical Members but not SFI Affiliates. The 990 RTs offered could be to recruit more PRMs to eventully become SFI Affiliates.

Quote:

Q: Will Rewardical members be told about the SFI affiliate opportunity?

One of the things that is very intriguing to us about Rewardical is that it represents a MUCH simpler, more accessible, and more casual program for anyone to earn some extra money. Indeed, every Rewardical member can earn money by taking some very simple actions. But does this mean they’re SFI material? Certainly not necessarily, and assuming so could result in negative consequences. So just as when someone becomes a TC member, we’re NOT going to immediately start soliciting them about SFI. However, what we may do, if we see a Rewardical member generating a lot of referrals, is send them some friendly, general information about SFI. After all, such a person may very well be interested in “taking it to the next level” with the more serious earnings available as an SFI affiliate. So, concentrate on referring Rewardical members and we’ll let them know about SFI “when the time is right.” And, yes of course, you’ll be recorded as their SFI sponsor should they choose to join SFI.
End quote

All the best with your business!

BRAIN TIP
When you encounter the questions that ask you to pick the LEAST popular answer, it can really mess with your head! But here’s an easy way to deal with it: Just modify the question in your mind to make it read the opposite way. For example, if the question is, “What’s the ugliest animal?”…change it in your mind to “What’s the cutest animal?” Reading it this way out loud will also help. Using these tricks, it’s MUCH easier to choose the correct answer.

Hi M.L.B.

I know this is not answering your question but, I posted this some time back re: Gold Streak. It has worked for me 100%. Yes, I have never had a wrong answer and always end up in the top 10 %.

If you follow the Brain Tip you will have no wrong answers. Yes, I guarantee it.

Good luck with your business!

Today is my 300day VP Streak here in SFI in Philippines

about 1 month ago

Hi Gina,

A 300 VP streak is something to be proud of. That is a 1-5 positive percentile for SFI. By that, I mean many prospects do not activate for even one VP. They are in that 0-95 negative percentile.

I hope you continue to log in and learn as much as you can. Good luck with your business!

How long will it takes for my TC MasterCard card to arrive? in Compensation #TripleClicks

about 1 month ago

Hi Ibibie,

This process started February 13, 2018. My card took longer than the estimated date I received in the Payoneer email. When I did not receive the card, Payoneer emailed me asking why I had not activated it? My response was I did not receive a card to activate. Payoneer's reply was they would mail me another one. Approximately 2 months later I did receive my first card and activated it.

Due to the confusion, yesterday I received a second Payoneer Card which I will not activate. I'll phone Payoneer informing them the second card will not be activated. If I do not have to send it back I will destroy it.

The cards are mailed International Priority Airmail U.S. Postage Paid fromCarol Stream, Illinois, U.S. I noticed the one I received this week had two Philippine dates April 7 for one substation and April 12 for the second substation stamped on the envelope.

As previously posted it does depend on the postal service. Good luck with that and your business!
