PDCA It. in Team Building #Sponsor #Team Building

Reply by Sarah W. 6 hours ago

I know what your thinking what in the world does PDCA It mean. Well I'm going to explain that here. But first I want to tell you how I learned this process. Before SFI I was involved in other businesses and got really frustrated by them because none of them seemed to work out, but I did learn a lot of strategies that have helped me out with SFI and other marketing businesses I do along side of SFI. PDCA is one of those strategies that works with everything you do.

These ideas and the author of PDCA is: W. Edwards Deming, He was an American engineer, statistician, professor, author, lecturer, and management consultant.

"Now lets get into what PDCA stands for:

Plan
Do
Check
Adjust

In any business if you are not making a game plan on how you are going to succeed then all your doing is treading water and standing still in one place. You have to have a plan. One thing you need to do to start your plan is to set some goals first, these goals can be as big or as little as you want them to be. If your not sure what goals to set start out with some small ones and work your way up to your long time goals. Once you have your goals set then make a plan to accomplish them.

Once you have your plan of action in place then you need go out and Do the action steps to your plan. You have to stay consistent in your action steps and do them every day to make them successful. You can't just do part of the steps and expect your plan to succeed. You must make sure to do everything so you can properly check your progress.

Every day or at once a week you need to Check your progress and see how your plan of action is working for you in your business. How do you do this? Well you need to check your numbers. Are your numbers in commissions growing or staying the same week to week or month to month? Are your numbers in PSA's and CSA's growing or staying the same? Are your PSA's and CSA's moving up in the ladder or are they staying the same? These are just a few of the things you can check but they are the most important, because without commissions, PSA's and CSA's you don't really have a business.

After checking your progress you need to Adjust anything that isn't working for you in your plan and change those action steps that aren't working. It could be anything, maybe simply just changing the way you approach people or how you send out emails. Maybe it's the wording in your emails that needs to be tweaked. Maybe you need to change the way you are marketing SFI. What ever you feel maybe the issue or needs to be changed to get better results then change it.

Once you change it then start the process over again and PDCA it again. You must always be PDCAing because you can always change something or make something better. One thing that makes this work the best is to have an accountability partner, someone who will help you stay on track and also point out areas where you can improve. I suggest this person be someone who has more experience in SFI, like your sponsor or maybe one of the leaders in your group above you. This way you are talking with someone who has the results you want in SFI. If you look towards someone who has the same results you want with the business they can help you move along the path they used to get there. "

PDCA has helped me tremendously in a lot things in SFI and life. So go out there and PDCA it up! And remeber to DREAM BIG and you will move towards you goals faster then you thought you ever could.

Best of luck to everyone!

I'm here to tell you that not everyone cuts it and why! in Getting Started #Marketing #Sales #TripleClicks

Reply by Johnny and Christine .. 8 days ago

The Rest Is Up To You! Not Them who ever they are;

Making a living online is a very steep learning curve for many and it can be difficult to learn everything required to run a successful business online or offline in a short space of time. More often then not it can not be fast enough for most so they quit and move on to the next latest greatest offer presented to them. Guess what they still have to do???

As an experienced SFI Team Leader, I'm here to tell you that not everyone cuts it! Some people just plain give up before they've even make it off the ground... I know this because I joined SFI with the intention to make a living not for today but for the now not so distant future-- and the reason is to make sure our retirement years are much, much easier financially then they have been working our jobs over the last 40 odd years.

So when I hear about the failure rates online, it really disappoints me because I think to myself...

"It's such a shame to miss out on the potential profits available here just because we don't fully understand just how much quality education SFI offers for free only to be dismissed or put aside for a latter date maybe!"

If you really want to succeed, and you'd like to do it the safe, proven, simple way -- without headaches, without stress and quickly, then read on because this may be the most important piece of information you've ever read...

There are five must-have ingredients that you need to include in your "Recipe For Success".

And if you don't have them, you better pay close attention here:



    A Workable Business Plan.


    A Unique Selling Proposition.


    A Quality, Value-Adding Service that can be offered through an Affiliate Membership site.


    Practical Tools to make the Administration & Management as easy as possible.


    A Marketing Plan.


Then once you've applied that recipe to one business, you can start adding Multiple Streams of Income to your business. This is to ensure you have more than one form of revenue coming into your bank account.

Just imagine how easy it would be to setup your own online business or to add value to enhance your business so you increase your profits... Don't be fooled in thinking it's easy to do or that you won't need to do anything.

SFI Can Make It EASY For You BUT! SFI won't do the mouse clicking for you, nor will they stand over you and make you learn the how too's either, only you can do this if you really want to make Money online.

Wouldn't it be great to be up and running in just a few hours? Do you think if you emailed your list you might even be able to make a few sales? Why not indeed!

(What? Don't have a list? Can't or Don't want to ask people to join SFI? ... Relax SFI can help you there!)

They have all the Tools, Banner Scripts, Support and affordable discounted ways that Can Make Difference For You

Don't you think that not having to have a high level of technical expertise to manage and work with your new members will be a God-send?

SFI Saves Precious Time For You

I don't know of too many places online where you can purchase stuff, earn rewards, play games and more while earning commissions and have others help you learn while you earn that has :

An affordable price tag that suits you (Free To Use)
A straightforward and easy Plan to follow
Will easily fit into your existing lifestyle
And is designed to make money for you

You can even show your new PSA's how to get started live if you wish for free...
Use Skype and Screen share, its that easy
Don't like Skype tell us what you would prefer then if anything we are always looking to improve our communications to our team.

You see that's what I excel at...Skype is so easy to use it's a wonder that more people don't use it.

The bottom line issue we are working on fixing in our team is that many people who join us do not follow through as sad that sounds but those who have talked with us and see what we do have started to move forward in SFI and are Team Leaders because of their actions not ours. As I said earlier, when I hear about the failure rates here it really disappoints me because it's such a shame to miss out on the potential profits that are available to everyone at any level here.

In my humble opinion this stems from peoples misconception about online business, not fully understanding just how much quality information is freely accessible in SFI, and the lack of action taken to get the job done.

"Only when YOU as the reader take action to remedy what might be holding you back only then will you improve your quality of life!"

Here is your Business Plan.
www.sfimg.com/the_plan

A Unique Selling Proposition.

The above links are just a few examples that we use to build an income using the SFI Platform and we are considering more as we grow. If you have some links that are working for you please explain and share. Remember though keep this about SFI not about out side offers Ok?

How Opti Build can save your business. in Team Building #Compensation #Leadership #Team Building

Reply by Andrew A. 8 days ago

I'm Andy Zeus Anderson and despite being one of the most highly respected forum Gurus and a perennial team leader who has earned thousands of dollars with SFI. I must admit that for over 5 of my nearly 7 full years with the company was running my business all wrong.

I was screwing things up and didn't even notice because at times I was soaring like an eagle with plenty of cash flow in SFI and other business interest but them things would happen and my income would all but vanish in what seemed like overnight. See I was building success for me or so I thought but in fact, I was just building income and not a real success.

I had single affiliates who were strong self-starters who were often funded better than me and my only if I earned it budget, but even they would hit a wall and close their seemingly profitable business after some time because they couldn't find that catalyst that takes you from making money to financial freedom.

Fact is we all had the same issue.

The fact was that we would all recruit leaders but only build our downlines. Let that sink in. SFI is unlimited width and while the Training told us we could earn so much more with Matching VP or Versa Points as they were called back then and as they are now simplified as commission overrides, we saw this high number for front-end commissions and set out to make 99% of our business about sales.

You can even look at my forum archives as I have helped many of you find a bit of success generating sales and even paying your EA or higher rank entirely from sales profits but I was somehow missing part of a big picture I thought that I knew. I know formulae to sell just about anything online. I was an affiliate marketer using my blogs and social media as early as January 3rd 2003. I was a sales leader in many programs including A Blog Marketing program that I put 88 members into in just 24 hours time and had a 40% conversion on recurring income from on an average 4 month rebill. That on a $40 a month membership.

I could make sales yes but make success, not so much.

See success versus profits is like being rich versus being wealthy. To make month takes profits but to be a success those profits must be residual and unstoppable. To be rich means you hit some arbitrary income goal and are now spending the money but if something happened tomorrow you would have to go back to work. Being wealthy means your money is making you money and you can live virtually forever off the income generated by others.

For an investment banker, they buy stocks and properties, bonds, and bank notes and live off interest, dividends, and rent. For an affiliate marketer or in our case network marketer the model is not as clear. We are told everywhere we turn to keep recruiting because it's a numbers game but if we get to know the people coming in we know the numbers are not all created equal.

SFI realizes this too and tells you to work with your workers, the problem is most of us don't know or take years to figure out what that means. We think like I did that if you learn it teach it, if you do it they will too but that is only part of the secret. I can tell anyone how to make sales and have through my blogs and this forum for years but I can't make them follow my lead. I have only recently realized the reason I at times would seemingly beat my head against the same brick wall. I would find good people and keep trying to find more people and suddenly my great people and they were some really great people would leave SFI and Me.

I am not talking EA or BTL referrals either. I have had people I helped build their business to BTKL and in one case GTL, a rank I personally have never obtained would walk away. The GTL was because while he was making money it was not solid income and he was spending too much time away from his Wine Bar Bistro business so he left and so did several hundred dollars a month in commission volume with him.

What was I doing wrong? How did they fail at those ranks?


The secret was we were building people under us instead of leaders under us. We had this field of dreams ideology that if we brought people in and showed them the training and were proof it works they, in turn, would be able to follow our footsteps with no help up the stairs. If a person failed or vanished we would tell ourselves they were so close to success but quit and feel assured with that answer. It's what we were taught or so we thought.

See in the time it took to build my first 5 leaders who combined would have put o0ver $1,000 a month in my pockets just based on them and their first level. My sponsor during most of this time was absent, and my new sponsor was given to me just prior to Opti-Build as a part of the bargain that included Active Sponsors as a new policy a couple years back. Cynthia is an amazing sponsor and saw what I see now early on so she has been huge in helping me turn things around.

So what about that $1,000 in leaders, why aren't they here with you?

Well, I lost these members of my team for the same reason I myself have been struggling to break a glass barrier to success. I stopped building beyond my first level of team and relied on them to read my teachings and those of SFI and find 5, who would read and find 5. I didn't help them find 5, didn't teach their 5 like I did them, and so they also would get a set of great people who would make no real money and move on to something different.

Now I have 3 people I am focusing on giving as much support as possible in my Designated diamonds. I have a couple future DD, and have already begun giving manual reassignments but above all, I split my recruiting with them through Opti-Build and it has helped them begin getting quality referrals before they were even finished learning how to get their own.

I can now teach those recruiting and conversion skills but add in my experience with co-opting my recruiting to build depth instead of width and show some profitable leaders in my team who have budding downlines of their own. The leaders I have now I can see myself working with 10 years from now because we are all learning how to not just recruit a downline but to help that downline learn to make money and even make money while they are still learning.

My team is growing deeper by the day.

As a result, where I could have lost, half my earnings with the new comp plan 3 years ago I lost very little in the changeover and the successive months have looked bright and will have me sitting pretty by this time next year. Opti-build and advertising coops are my power tools, my team is truly a team working on common goals for the common good, and our futureprofitable. Get your people profitible and they will stay, stop the attrition and it's like putting the plug in the bathtub so it can fill with water.

Build Your Team Up - by Going Down in Team Building #Leadership #Team Building

Reply by Scott L. 16 days ago

The SFI Ultra Basic Plan is all you need to follow to build a successful business.
https://www.sfimg.com/SFIBasics3Steps

But, to create an income that gets easier over time requires that your teams get larger on lower levels, not just on level 1, your PSA’s.

Having 1000 PSA’s who reach EA one month by purchasing something, yes, you will earn 24% commission. But if your PSA’s don’t have a team below them - if they are not earning any income - they won’t be an active PSA very long!

Reward your new active PSA’s with at least 3 PSA’s for their team by reassigning some, or by putting them into your co-op.
https://www.sfimg.com/ROS/ROSWorkWithWorkers

This gives them the opportunity to become BTL as soon as they can meet the Versa Point requirements. It shows them you are an active sponsor ready to help.
https://www.sfimg.com/Support/Solution?id=191295

They benefit by getting more CSA’s, more TCredits, more Rewardical Tokens -- all things that will increase their business.....and yours too!

Most network marketing opportunites pay down 2 or 3 levels; some do more. But as you know, SFI allows you down to 12 compressed levels....meaning more than twelve potentially.

Knowing that you can earn just as much Team Override commissions from a level 12 or lower as you can from your level 1 should be a huge incentive to teach your PSA’s to build their teams down as well.

And I haven’t even touched on Designated Diamonds or the Opti-Build program, which, if you understand it correctly, can build your downline for you automatically, as you refer members to your team.

Auctions and games are fun, and are decent products to promote; but if you want residual and leveraged income that gets easier and better over time, your priority has to be team building.

Build your team UP, by going DOWN!

How to leverage Localvantia to achieve EA every month in Getting Started #Getting Started #Localvantia #Marketing

Reply by Cameron H. 17 days ago

Locavantia is still in its infancy. Are you taking advantage of this amazing opportunity?

A quick search shows that there are hundreds of thousands of opportunities to register local businesses for this program. Local businesses that you yourself can add to your account list and earn 10% residual Rewardicals from.

One of the biggest complaints we all hear from SFI affiliates is that they don’t have the disposable income to purchase Tripleclicks products and earn VP to achieve EA.

Here is a business plan for you to implement:

1. Find a way to set aside $36.25 a month for 6 months.
2. Set up an automatic delivery for the 125 TCredits. (This will allow you to achieve Executive Affiliate rank for 6 months)
3. Use the first couple of months to pre-register as many potential local businesses you can including locations you already shop at regularly.
4. Establish your account list.
5. Collect 10% of all Rewardicals awarded by your new accounts.
6. Redeem those Rewardicals for rank achieving VP, PSAs, CSAs, Bitcoin, whatever your heart desires.

With a large enough account list of local businesses you will earn enough Rewardicals to redeem for the 1,500 required VP to maintain EA.

Your business costs are now self sustaining and you can focus on marketing the business opportunity to increase your earnings month to month.

July was good. But August will be GREAT. in Team Building #Leadership #Sponsor #Team Building

Reply by kevin d. 20 days ago

Hey Guys
I just wanted to share a few of my thoughts as we close out July.

For us at SFI I think it has been an exciting month, with many changes.I know that many were a bit disappointed earlier on in the month with a lower commission than expected, but I hope that made you work harder to make sure the next payment is better.

What we have to remember is that the changes were made to help us not hinder us.

I know it has been a month about learning all about the new compression within the commission structure and that to me has been exciting.

Also who does not love “Astro Auctions”? How can you be such a winner and not even win the auction? How great is that?!

During July I became Silver Team Leader, one of my PSAs became a Silver Team Leader, one of his PSAs became a Silver Team Leader and to finish that of one of his PSAs became a Bronze Team Leader. How great is that?

So as I reflect on a good month of team building I am excited for the next month to start and build an even stronger team.

I have an amazing team and an amazingly supportive sponsor, she is such an inspiration to me and she is my biggest cheerleader. So with her help and the dedication of my downline I am very excited to see what August will bring.

Please remember to look up at you upline as well if you need help, if your sponsor does not help look higher. As you see from the forum many great people are here to help everybody. No one should be left behind because they did not ask for help or advice. The forum is a GOLDMINE.

So I wish each and everyone of you a GREAT August. Set your Goals high but not unreachable. Work hard as you would at any business that you own. The harder you work the higher the reward. Remember this is about the long term, Not A Get Rich Scheme (because there is no such thing).

Regards

I Lost My Net Amount - No Need Standing Order in Miscellaneous

Reply by Steve L. 25 days ago

Hi Navanithe,



I would consider all this a little bit of short term pain for a lot of LONG TERM GAIN!

I can't recall all the details of the new compensation plan BUT i believe that unless I am mistaken (and that is entirely possible) but I believe that right now you ONLY need to find your 3 best PSAs and work with them to help them build their own teams! As you teach those 3 they'll take you to Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond... THOSE THREE!

Think about that! Teach just 3 people to be successful in one part of SFI and you can go to the beach!

What I'm gonna do is announce a 3 month contest to let every PSA I have put up as many VPs as they can and at the end of those 3 months the top 3 will become MY 3. My 3 will receive PSAs placed in their downlines, I will provide them training and free advertising AND I WILL EXPECT THEM TO DUPLICATE WHAT I'M DOING WITH THEIR THREE! I'm even gonna try to assign PSAs and other benefits by the percentage of the VPs generated and a couple other trackable stats by each of the three.

We MUST NEVER ignore those affiliates who aren't spending those are likely the most hungry and will be the hardest working affiliates you could have! We all must find ways to reward them

Again, think about that... just THREE PEOPLE coached and taught and supported WILL take you anywhere you want to go!

Hang in there Navanithe, identify YOUR THREE and let them know they are YOUR THREE and that you are gonna teach them how to build their SFI Business AND more importantly IDENTIFY THEIR THREE! And that you will help and expect them to DUPLICATE what you are doing for them for THEIR THREE!

It really is simple, not easy, but simple and it takes time!

Once again I've rambled on too long, I'll shut up now!

Be Well,
Steve Lanier

Worth it? Yes/No in Astro Auctions #Astro Auctions #Rewardical

Reply by Keith D. 25 days ago

My Astro Auction results since 7/10/18 (16 days)

I have bid on AA 40 times since 7/10 and have won 3 auctions (50 CSA's, 500 TCredits, 3 month subscription for 125 TCredits; ie. 375 TCredits and 4500 VP).

Calculating all TCredits spent on AA less TCredits returned, less TCredits won, less RT's won (16,025) if converted into TCredits. leaves a net spend of 84 TCredits.

So, what did I get for 84 TCredits?
* 50 CSA's,
* 2200 extra VP this month,
* plus an additional 250 TCredits and 3000 VP over the next 2 months,
* not to mention 120 Moves and 120 Matches for the EZ games,
* AND 17 Daily Crown bonus entries!

Now, if I convert my RT's to VP my net TCredit spend is 292, but I get an additional 5341 VP! Not sure how I will use my RT's yet, but the exciting thing is: I know there will be many more RT's coming my way as I continue to bid everyday.

I'm happy! What do you think? Is it worth it? Is it worth a monthly Auto Delivery for TCredits? Even 1 TCredit spent on AA comes with many great surprises!

1st Anniversary! in Recognition #Contests #E365 #Team Building

Reply by Zhumagul A. about 1 month ago

Hello everyone hope your all having a wonderful morning, day or evening!

Today I am celebrating my 1st Anniversary here and I would like to share everything I have accomplished in 1 year.
I feel honored and proud of my accomplishments because all my hard work starting to pay off.

Since day 1 of joining SFI and starting my amazing journey here, I have never stopped reading, learning, working towards building my business. Everyday I had to do something to grow my business, which later became my daily habit.
I've became Silver Team Leader

Here are my accomplishments so far:
I had made it to 5 Gens, but one of my PSAs became inactive and for failing one of the affiliate agreement she has lost all her downline and all her downline were assigned to me. But its okay I know she had very good reason of personal life of why she became inactive. She said she'll be back online after getting her life back together.Till she's ready to come back, I'll make sure to take care of her downline for her.

Now I got 3 Gens and CSAs
GEN AFFILIATES
PSA 162
2 135
3 126
CSA 344
PRMs 30

I got amazing Team whom I am very proud of (1 STL, BTLs and EAs) and whom I cherish and appreciate every each one of them. Thank you all for being such an amazing associates and friends.

E365 Champion with 40,041 ALL-TIME VP , 11-MONTH EA STREAK and 365-DAY VP STREAK
#58 in Top Sponsors
Buster Club Member
Forum Guru
#1 in my class
25x support stars
Opti-Build Leader etc....
60 TOTAL BADGES
Leaderboard Rank: 258 (13630 points)

This month just to show how much I appreciate my team, I created a contest from July 11, 2018 to December 30, 2018 for everyone in my downline from Gen 1 -8.
Who ever reaches BTL each month will be receiving 1 PRM with a special key code from me.
As promised each BTL so far got their PRMs.
Now of course for my EAs in Gen 1 as reward they get 5 PSAs and BTLs (DDs) get their PSAs from my Opti-Build program.
I just hope they also appreciate all my hard work as I appreciate theirs!

About my inactive members I have already made a thread sharing the great news here:
www.sfimg.com/forum/thread?post_id=1458075#post-1458075

Soon I'll be going for GTL or Higher if God permits.

So what trying to say is be patient, keep persisting, keep learning, keep working hard. With the right mindset and attitude you can do anything. Just set your goals and keep moving forward working hard in reaching each one of those goals.
Together we can move the mountains. Only the sky is the limit.

Wish all of you much more success in your businesses!
Thank you all for reading.

Team Leaders Should Support Each Others! in Team Leaders #Getting Started #Marketing #Team Building

Reply by Tommie K. about 1 month ago

Hi Fellow SFI’ers,

Tommie Kirkland (Captkirk)

Team Leaders Should Support Each Others!

[/b]For Example, If I start a thread on:[/b]
- Free Advertising
- Motivation
- New Pay Plan
- Team Building
- And Etc

Fellow Team Leaders should do in the forum:
- Support the Fellow team leader
- Edify each other when we can
- Build up rather than tear down
- Lead by a Good Example

Fellow Team Leaders should NOT do in the forum:
- Tear down a fellow team leader
- Say hear we go again with the same old stuff
- Interupt Fellow team leaders threads with negative comments that have nothing to do with the threads.
- And Etc

Why?

Because the forum members are watching the team leaders and a great team leader leads by examples.

Tip: Be the kind of Team Leader you want your team to follow!

In the recent past........my leadership has been challenged in Team Leaders #Leadership #Marketing #Team Building

Reply by Andrew A. about 1 month ago

The new compensation plan virtually forces members to implement what SFI has always tried to get us to do voluntarily and that is building strong teams below us.

In the past, the incentive was to earn 45% of the CV by recruiting nothing but PSA and then basically telling them how to fend for themselves and leaving them off to profit on their own. We as a whole didn't implement deep team building because we didn't fully understand the value and potential of the Versa points system but now those tiers under us have a dollar value and that is a 4% cash override on all sales and purchases.

In the past, your earnings could fluctuate on a month by month basis even if you had the exact same VP every month because low sales or extra free shares of the Executive Pool issued would reduce their value. No more will your earnings be devalued based on other members not driving sales.

Before now you would have to depend on every affiliate being as hard working as you and your team. Now what your team earns stays in the team, 48% of the CV paid out over up to 12 tiers. 8% earnings on New CSA, and up to 16% or 2 shares on existing CSA in our teams, and 24% of every sale we directly make via 4% override and 20% direct commission.

Going forward:

To step back out as a leader again you need to focus on systems like Opti-Build to place workers under your workers and teach those workers to do the same. Keep building up the team with reassignments and building down instead of out so you can have dozens or even hundreds or thousands of people earning you income each month. You can not make that happen but you can make sure that if it doesn't you have done your best and the roll-up for those who fall out will make sure you don't lose ground.

Better understanding of Compression in Compensation #Compensation #Sales #Team Building

Reply by Liezel T. about 1 month ago

I want to show you a simple explanation as to why the new Compensation plan and the Compression feature is absolutely the best fit for building a large and profitably business within SFI!

These are numbers I have taken from my downline and are meant for explanation only.

SFI has an "Active Sponsor policy". Which basically means. "Log in at least once AND have at least 250 VersaPoints every 45 days".

Simple, but good rule in my personal opinion.

Now even though this is a fair and decent rule. A lot of affiliates do just that. They log in and do less then 1500 VP, but more then 250VP! There are a lot of different reasons why affiliates do this, but that is for a different discussion.

Lets take a look at the #1 reason why Compression can be such an amazing feature within the SFI compensation plan!

Last month I had 2,500 affiliates within my 12 levels who did less than 1500VP but more than 250VP.

To put this in perspective... That means that 2,500 positions within my 12 levels were taken and I received no commissions.. with the possibility of a few cents!

Now with the compression feature... SFI has removed these 2,500 NON-EA affiliates from the commission process and compressed all active.. 1500VP or more, down from levels 13, 14, 15, all the way, etc... into these positions. Hence COMPRESSION!

Now I don't want you to think that I now received 2,500 more paid positions.. There are a lot of other things to factor in! There could be no active EA or above to fill the removed position.. But my point is this..

Build a strong front line..
Build deep...
And most importantly........
BE A STRONG TEAM LEADER..
Learn and pass on your knowledge to your downline.

Compression will eventually weed out the weak and show you the strong!

I hope I helped you to understand the HUGE potential that Compression can have on your commission check...

What happened to my recent sponsor? in Miscellaneous

Reply by Tim F. about 1 month ago

Hi

Don't worry about sponsors you don't need them - other than of course to get you into the business in the first place

This business is about what you do - how good or bad your sponsor is doesn't impact on you one way or the other in the end. Think of it like a family. You might get the best support from grandparents or maybe a half cousin rather than your mum and dad. The same in sfi you have the forum and may be people you meet online who you never knew were in sfi but gave you good advice.

I would say don't rely on anyone else or think someone else has the illusive answer as to how to do well in sfi - the truth is they don't know any more than you

Simply set out to advertise the program with simple text ads, recruit new affiliates and refer sales and you will do fine
Always be positive and optimistic about what you can achieve on your own - roll up your sleeves and get on with it - the more you talk about it and discuss it the less you're actually doing anything

In short sponsor? Sponsor who! Enjoy the program get active recruit refer that's it OK

More Than Doubled My May Commission in Compensation #Compensation #Team Building

Reply by Bing O. about 1 month ago

One Level Higher Status at the last Day of June More Than Doubled My May Commissions!

1. Many Thanks to SFI for the Improvements in the Compensation Plan announced on June 1st.

2. I can't thank enough my Bing-Zing teammates for pushing me up to the DTL spot!

3. Remove all your lingering doubts about our SFI business opportunity.

4. It is now time to put in your/our best efforts in promoting SFI and building depth first - in order to push up your TLs

5. Nobody who sincerely set up goals with schedule, following the Six Steps of The Diamond Plan: will not be ecstatic with their growing commissions in the months ahead!

What a Loser! in Pricebenders #Contests

Reply by Tim B. about 1 month ago

I've seen a lot of people over the years come to the forum and complain that they can't win a pricebender auction, so I want to be the first to complain about not being able to win an Astro Auction.

So far today, they have given me:
8 Daily Crown Entries
45 GMP/ZJ Matches
30 GMP Moves
110 VP
2227 Rewardicals
And I haven't won a single auction.
I know what you're thinking... "What a loser"

So, if you've given up on price benders... give Astro Auctions a try.
You'll still probably lose, but losing never felt so good.

It's a great way to leverage your TCredits.

how to conect my csa's sponsor ? in Team Building #CSA

Reply by Sampath Kumar S. about 1 month ago

1. You will not be able to contact your CSA's sponsor. You can find the name of her sponsor by clicking her Profile Photo. You can try to become an A2A friend with her sponsor. Just a possibility.
2. It's her wish to be active or other wise depending on many reasons perhaps personal too.
3. All you can do is please keep encouraging her through regular communication and remain hopeful that she will become active again.
4. Please see if she is available in the Facebook or any known channels like LinkedIn, etc.

Beyond this you can do nothing.

I am so discouraged and can't take it anymore! in Team Building #PSA #Sponsor #Team Building

Reply by Zhumagul A. about 1 month ago

Did the caption called your attention?

Hello everyone, hope your all having great evening or morning!

So today I wanted to talk about everything that happened in the month of July.
After months of my sleeping beauties they are slowly waking up and starting to work in their businesses and reading their launchpad lessons. How exciting is that? I know I am super happy and so excited!

But do you know how and why is this happening?
Because I didn't give up on any of my team members, and I keept sending E-Cards of each changes in SFI, kept reminding them what an amazing opportunity they are letting to slip out of the tips of their fingers. I kept sending the new updates and how great the New Comp Plan was. Let them know that now is the time to wake up and work harder, that now isn't the time to go into the deep sleep or keep being asleep.

I didn't throw the towel and said I am discouraged and tired, I didn't quit that easily.
Having an inactive members shouldn't be the reason to quit, instead keep working on recruiting new members but also keep working on waking up your sleeping beauties.

Here is why you shouldn't give up your hopes in your sleeping beauties and your business.
For a simple reason that they are still in your genealogy downline report and they didn't opted out of their SFI business account. This only means that they are still interested and it gives me hope that one day they are thinking about coming back online and work. They are only waiting for that right time when their ready.

I am blessed and grateful to have such an amazing working Team Leaders in my team, and I am so proud of them all. I love helping and showing support to my team. I don't only consider them a part of my team but I also have made an amazing friendship, I consider them as part of my family. Wish they would all know how much I appreciate every each one of them.

This month I have been working so hard to recruit members into my team.
Today I got 23 PSAs/POS, from which 50% went to my DDs and and another 5 members to my EA member.
One of the reasons why I love having my own personal advertising FB group.
My Methods of recruiting are:
Facebook Groups where they allow to advertise your business for free and all has over 10K and up of members.
Empowr
My personal advertising FB group that I created myself.
Twitter
Instagram
Google+

From the traffic sites:
Safelist
TrafficSwirl this one you might check on it as it comes with promo code for free credits as a sign up bonus.
SocialSurf4U this one also comes with promo code.
I suggest you read and learn the terms of service and privecy policy first and learn how to use the sites.

I am using other sites also, but I'll let you all know on how the others going after I see any results from them.
But so far only the above has given great results.

I also get so excited to see my scoreboard and the percentage of advancement:


This is what team work is all about!
So what trying to say is be patient, keep persisting, keep learning, keep working hard. With the right mindset and attitude you can do anything. Just set your goals and keep moving forward working hard in reaching each one of those goals.
Together we can move the mountains. Only the sky is the limit.

Wish all of you much more success in your businesses!
Thank you all for reading.

Reassigned over 500 PSA today. To my downline! "Teamwork". in Team Building #Getting Started #Leadership #Team Building

Reply by John M. about 1 month ago

With my marketing efforts, I found I had close to 1200 PSA on my first level. Some active, some not. To much to handle without help!
So I went to my genealogy and wrote down a list of my best "movers" meaning, people that take this seriously. I write down important information about my recipient such as name, country, and rank. Anyone with the rank of EA or above will receive free PSA from me as your team leader.
I try to help each one of my "movers" by matching them with people from their own country. But sometimes this is not possible. I would like to help one of my movers from Croatia but I am not getting any new affiliates from that country.
But we are all about diversity! Global business. Right? So I sent him 50 PSA from around the world. I hope and pray that my team appreciates my efforts. I sure appreciate theirs! I wish all of you the best of luck in the future with SFI.

On a side note: I know a lot of people are wondering about all the new changes to our income structure and all the new changes overall! In my opinion....I think it's pretty exciting! I'm really liking the "scoreboard" tab! It gives me daily data on the progress of my team.

Don't give up people! This is just starting to take off.

My Earnings Now Showing in Compensation #Compensation

Reply by Gery 2 months ago

Minimum rank is EA to earn a Team Override (qualifies you for Team Overrides on 3 compressed generations). So if Joe on your 7th generation generated CV (via either a purchase or sale)...and there were less than three persons between you and Joe at the rank of EA, you'd earn a Team Override on the CV due to the dynamic compression we now utilize.

The line of sponsorship might look like this:

YOU (EA)
Tom
Mary
Bob (EA)
John
Lori
Sara (EA)
Joe

Of course, if you're a BTL, it could look like this and you'd still earn the Team Override on the CV on your 27th generation! Yes, dynamic compression is a HUGE upgrade to our comp plan!

YOU (BTL)
Tom
Mary
Bob (EA)
John
Lori
Sara (EA)
Frank
Burt
Phil
Jarred
Molly
Justin
Allen
