To be or not to be! (BTL) .Hamlet's question? in Team Building #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Go BTL and use free advertising :-)

Lifted from SFI Solutions: "Contrary to what some may say, free advertising on the Internet is NOT a waste of time. Many SFI Affiliates have successfully used free classified ad posting to build strong SFI home businesses for themselves. Although it typically does take more of a time investment than other, more costly methods, when used effectively, free advertising can truly take your SFI business to the next level!" Here is a link for more Free Advert information. www.sfimg.com/Support/Solution?catid=26444&id=232661

Why I Chose Not To Go To STL (Silver Team Leader) Rank? in Team Building #Team Building

about 1 month ago

I guess if that is what your goal is with your business, then who has the right to argue with you on how you run your business. I just thought perhaps you had ample time studying "the plan": www.sfimg.com/the_plan to understand that there will be missed opportunities with your logic. I want to share with you "my best tip" which is kind of similar to yours but different logic.

Invest in yourself, Invest in your business, Invest in your networks, thrice will create value and a never-ending income stream. How to invest in yourself? Learn and master the SFI Business - The Plan. The Launch Pad is an excellent source of knowledge. Do apply what you learn.

How to invest in your business? Don't be afraid to invest financial means in growing and building your business. Learn as much about TripleClicks! It is your business to know how to promote and sell the choice of product features and benefits. TC marketing tools are boundless!

How to invest in your network? Based on The Plan; sponsor and teach your downline to do what you do; how to invest in themselves, how to invest in their business, and how to invest in their network; thus strengthening your network. Be there for them in every step of the way. Your business downline will yield ten-fold investment returns.

Always be mindful of these three things: 1. Invest in yourself; 2. Invest in your business; 3. Invest in your network.

All the best!

"Though SFI is truly one of the few businesses where you can earn while you learn, think of your first 6-12 months primarily as a training period. Build this into your plan. In this era of "instant everything," I know that's tough for a lot of people to deal with, but high incomes do not happen overnight. It's just not reality. If it were, everybody would be rich."

Agree! Perhaps, too much information at first. However, if team leaders or sponsors could show some assurance and guidance, it would go a long way, especially to a newbie. What I found that works well is to refer new affiliates to the Launchpad lessons: www.sfimg.com/LaunchPad/index?referrer=search

Can unused TCredits only be refunded within 30 days of purchase?". in Sales #Marketing #TCredits #TripleClicks

3 months ago


I would suggest that your PSA sets up an Auto-Delivery for next month, then go ahead and submit a ticket to SFI support for a refund. One thing I noticed is that six single Tcredits does not amount to $33.60. Make sure to advise your PSA to submit all related purchase details to avoid any delays.

All the best!

Does it make financial cents (sense) in Team Building #Compensation #PSA #Team Building

4 months ago


It appears to me that you are doing the right things towards building your online business, which shows me that you are ahead of the curve in some areas. If you allow the plan, www.sfimg.com/the_plan to be your guide, I do not doubt that you will build a stronger business and eventually achieve DTL in the long run.
Having an auto delivery is a right business decision. It is a step towards building a stronger team. Leading by example goes a long way as well. Your EA’s and other team members will follow your best examples.
Setting up and building a business from scratch is hard work; It does take time too; Do take your time to make a strong business foundation. Also, embrace a long-term vision and define the goals you want to achieve, and the future rewards will be abundant.
Lastly, keep learning and don’t get discouraged easily. Keep reminding yourself of your goals; reassess and redefine them and keep moving forward. The vital key to achieving DTL is the many affiliates in your team, the EA’s, the BTL’s, the STL’s, the GTL’s, and the PTL’s. Build a strong team, and things will eventually pay off for you and your team.
All the best!

How much time do you spend while doing SFI? in Miscellaneous #Team Building #TripleClicks

4 months ago

Time management is the essential part of any business if you want to achieve success as you define it in your goals. Based on the goals I have set for my SFI business, it will require 5 to 12 hours each day. Of course, not all spent on computing. Seven hours of it a week is spent talking to potential business owners - one hour a day is probably minimal, which can be adjusted. Posting ads online, twitter, facebook, Instagram are other exciting never-ending work that contributes towards success. If your goal is DTL, the more meaningful hours spent building your business is well worth it.

Ask her why she would make a decision for others and not give her business a chance for growth. You can show her the possibilities of building her business through SFI games. Moreover, SFI games do appeal to a lot of people including market segments that we least expect.

I can see your frustration. We are all experiencing it. However, we should not let it affect how we need to run our SFI business. Avail all the tools that are at your disposal to create a bigger and better online business for you and your family. There are Launchpad lessons that can give you greater insight to increase sponsoring team members: www.sfimg.com/LaunchPad/Lesson?id=21 There is also Sponsoring Aids and Methods: www.sfimg.com/LaunchPad/Lesson?id=80 And, there is "the importance of transfer buying" that can make it "easier to sponsor affiliates." www.sfimg.com/LaunchPad/Lesson?id=78 I hope this helps.
