Maree's Tip. Tracking your SFI Promotions. in Getting Started #Getting Started #Marketing #Sales

2 days ago

I prefer to use numbers rather than letters.
I am sorry but it is against SFI rules to share out side links I use that match the codes.
YOU can find your Sponsors G mail address when you click Smart Start to view.
You will find on their leadership board, their email address.
DO not spam them or ask them to join other programs. I simply delete these sort of emails.

Send them an email and ask if they are running a SFI coop or maybe ask where they promote.
Remember to always do a google search first for any sites recommended.
I find some SFI members try to lure members away to other programs.
Best tip do not stray away. Be sure to participate daily with the Big O receiving Spill over.
Or lock into the builder bundle to receive random members.
I get some gems with these promotions.

Maree's Tip. Tracking your SFI Promotions. in Getting Started #Getting Started #Marketing #Sales

2 days ago

SFI tracking tool is a must when advertising.
Information sourced from SFI training. Have you read it.
Never Give Up. Keep Searching For that Gem Promotional Outlet.
Effective tracking is why many SFI Affiliates are able to build profitable businesses.
It's also at this point that many marketers fail.
They are not using the tracking facility therefore are not aware of their advertising results.
Wasting valuable time and money..
By placing advertising and tracking your results, you will find out where you should continue to place your ads, and where you should stop wasting your time and money!
Track the Web hits to your personal SFI Gateway sites.
Creating cost effective, high performance marketing doesn't have to be difficult.
In fact, simply following one important rule can help ensure you get the most bang for your marketing buck:
TRACK YOUR RESULTS!
Below are some of the hit tracking results I received to this weeks SFI advertising.
I keep a close eye on these statistics to tweak and perfect the details of my marketing campaigns.
It takes a lot of advertising to generate a few PSA's.
Personally I feel it takes people viewing 3-5 time the same promotional links before they decide to investigate and sign up.
Keycode: 6655 | Hits: 2916
No Keycode | Hits: 838 Some sites do not allow tracking.
Keycode: 3333 | Hits: 486
Keycode: 4897 | Hits: 383
Keycode: 9966 | Hits: 289
Keycode: 2228 | Hits: 139
Keycode: 7646 | Hits: 128
Keycode: 2388 | Hits: 96
Keycode: 4488 | Hits: 59
Keycode: 3344 | Hits: 28
Keycode: 8822 | Hits: 27
I like to see before investing more cash, which sites work and which are a waste of time and money.
Example key code 8822 and 3344 I spent around $30 on advertising which was a waste of time, as I achieved no signups and very few hits to my promotions. So I remove the site from my daily planner.
SFI Key codes is how I track my traffic and conversions I receive from my promoting SFI on a regular Basis. .
Remember to check before every Sunday when it resets.
https://www.sfimg.com/PowerTools/HitTracking

How to add Tracking codes. Plus Setting Up A Daily Planner To Work From.
I then work from this page daily. Doing my advertising.
Removing sites that were a waste of time from previous weeks.
Doing a google search for new sites to try. Plus advertising again at sites that generated hits.
Start with designing a list to record results on your computer.
www.joinmySFIteam.com/XXXXXX.3338 Add the name of the site here.
www.joinmySFIteam.com/XXXX.1043 Add the name of the site here.
Where you see XXXX insert your SFI Id number here.

If you compare this type of tracking with that of offline advertising, which is very hard to track with statistics.
Internet marketing can be a great playground for those of you who like to have control over future results.

SFI and websites! in Sales #Marketing #TripleClicks

Click your Smart Start Link and start to read all the training.
http://www.sfimg.com/smart
I sourced this information from Clicking the Start HERE Link then reading.

To understand the SFI Compensation Plan, you must first understand CV (Commission Volume). Every product on a Zing Network site has a CV value, which is the maximum amount of commissions paid out for that product.
For commission information about each product, just click the SFI Toolbox button on the products details page to view the DC (Direct Commission), CSC (Co-Sponsor Commission), TO (Team Overrides), CV (Commission Volume), and VP (VersaPoints) you can earn by selling this product.

No matter what we do. Not all affiliates will become active.

Maree's thoughts for the day. in Getting Started #Leadership #Team Building

2 days ago

Last year I generated a four figure income working part time with SFI.
This year I intend to increase it to five figures.
Do you see the pattern here.
All Team Leader profiles show they have been members for years, setting the same long term goals, benefiting with being patient and participating.
Building our knowledge to share with everyone here at the forum.

Maree's thoughts for the day. in Getting Started #Leadership #Team Building

When members are surfing at outside programs to earn the free credits.
They forget the idea originally was to promote SFI FREE.
Instead they get lured away to other programs with silly bribes.
Then wonder why they are in the same position a year done the track with no results.
This is how I achieve Gold Team Leader Month in Month Out.
I use the other programs for advertising different SFI gateways as my credits build.

Maree's thoughts for the day. in Getting Started #Leadership #Team Building

3 days ago

Leon my Sponsors Post at the forum was a great reminder.
I sometimes wonder if the average person that opts out of SFI is quitting online marketing all together or was SFI their only test.
Online marketing should be a lifestyle choice and consist of many different income streams. So why quit? Anyway...

My thoughts about affiliate marketing.
There are thousands of on line affiliate programs.
Then there is SFI. Still on line evolving year in year out.
Unique in their concept and just brilliant is all I can say.
Yes I also belong to outside programs
BUT I only use them as advertising portholes for my SFI Gateway Promotions.
The beauty is I earn numerous different income streams while simply promoting SFI.

My Thoughts for today.
1. Do not over analysis things and do not be afraid to take a few risks.
2. Always think positive, optimistic thoughts attract positive out comes.
3. Create a realistic time frame for your goals to help motivate you into actions.
4. Do not listen to negative people. Remember whenever some one undermines your dreams. They are telling you their story, MINE.
5. Check in daily to your Smart Start Program broadening your knowledge with all the training.

What are your thoughts for today.
What have you achieved and how is your progress with SFI.

Appreciation in Inspiration/Testimonials

3 days ago

Yes you are at the right place at the right time.
Well done with your achievement.
I thought I would share this quote from Gery.
I saved it many years ago for inspiration.

Did you know that you usually have to fail, multiple Times.
Before you get to success?
It was true for me and probably will be true for you too.
Persist until you win.
I look forward to watching your progress via the forum.
On wards and upwards I say.

Duplication can either build or destroy your business. in Miscellaneous #Getting Started #Team Building

3 days ago

What a great post. I could not say it better myself.
I always tell my team.
You will not learn everything about SFI in a few days or weeks.
One of the main reasons SFI is so successful is because it has real substance-with literally thousands of dollars invested into building the network.
By learning to create your own lead system!
You can then co-op that system with those you refer into your programs for maximum leverage.
Yes, support is critical, but lead generation is the life of your business.

"Gery Carson's Quote. Did you know that you usually have to fail, multiple Times.
Before you get to success?
It was true for me and probably will be true for you too.
Persist until you win. Zig Ziglar.
You can have anything you want in life if you will help enough other people get what they want."

I share this with all my team and via my blog and social media posts.
1. Do not over analysis things and do not be afraid to take a few risks.
2. Always think positive, optimistic thoughts attract positive out comes.
3. Create a realistic time frame for your goals to help motivate you into actions.
4. Do not listen to negative people.
Remember whenever some one undermines your dreams. They are telling you their story, MINE.
5. Check in daily to your Smart Start Program, broadening your knowledge with all the training.

Can anyone explain to me about Co-Sponsor Commissions in Sales #CSA #Sales #Team Building

3 days ago

By memory you do not receive commissions if the member redeems with rewards etc.
There has to be spending involved.
Then I don t have for PSAs To Go (Special Offer!) is it because is Special Offer?
By memory to activate this you need to lock in the SFI Coop Package.

What is the CSA Rewards program? Sourced from Launch pad training.
The CSA Rewards program gives all affiliates the opportunity to earn dozens of new, income-boosting CSAs every month!
Here’s how it works:
The CSA Rewards program awards you Co-Sponsored Affiliates (with YOU as the co-sponsor) for accomplishing various tasks.
One of the easiest ways to several new CSAs every month is by becoming Booster Club Qualified (BCQ), which includes 5 CSAs.
But you can also get LOTS more CSAs by advancing through the ranks of the SFI program:
Attain Executive Affiliate (EA) rank, and you'll receive 10 CSAs each month you keep that rank
Become a Bronze Team Leader (BTL) to get 12 CSAs a month.
Become a Silver Team Leader (STL) to get 14 CSAs a month.
Become a Gold Team Leader (GTL) to get 16 CSAs a month.
Become a Platinum Team Leader (PTL) to get 18 CSAs a month.
Become a Diamond Team Leader (DTL) to get 20 CSAs a month.
Finally, affiliates who become the E365 Champion for their class will get 10 CSAs every month!
IMPORTANT! Qualified affiliates will receive an alert on their Alerts Tab when their month's CSAs are ready.
They will then need to visit the CSA Rewards Ledger and claim their CSA(s) by clicking the "CLAIM" button(s) on that page.
That request will immediately be queued and CSA(s) will be added to the affiliate's Genealogy as soon as new CSAs are available. This will normally be within 24 hours. CSAs unclaimed after 30 days are forfeited.

Marees Tip. Stream Posts importance. in Getting Started #Getting Started #Leadership #Team Building

5 days ago

Morning all I thought I would share the stream post I just sent to all my team.
Feel free to duplicate.
Most important Check smart start EVERY BODY. Click Start Here.
http://www.sfimg.com/smart
View all Launch Pad Training top 14 posts. Then click blue links at the right.
Study 1-3 new articles daily. Leaders succeed with reading.
Check Top Movers and introduce yourself with sending an E Card sharing the link with all newbies.
Tell them the importance of logging in daily is the way to succeed.

Yesterday I studied my Smart Start VP Ledger. Clicking all links I had not activated.
Here are some interesting tips I found while reading the information provided.
Here are two great quotes that sum it up nicely:
"Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers." –Harry Truman
"Today a reader, tomorrow a leader." –Margaret Fuller
When I review the Lesson. Overnight success...NOT!
In this lesson we're going to talk having big goals...but REALISTIC goals.
SFI holds tremendous potential for those who will apply themselves, but it's not going to happen overnight or without work.
As the old saying goes, "the only place that success comes before work is in the dictionary."
I read the entire article.
Then I click the Green Tab I have reviewed this lesson.
I keep repeating this clicking all the blue tabs at the right.

Set aside some time today to broaden your knowledge with your Smart Start Training.
