Price Benders-Pick the Price VP in Suggestion Box #Pricebenders #VersaPoints

over 2 years ago

Gerry and all SFI members

In starting this I would like to state emphatically that I love the new price benders auction format because of the choice of auction available all the time and I am not looking for a change in this format.
I am just looking for a refinement to allow everyone to take advantage of all the offers that are available.

I have been using both the price benders Auction and Pick the price game to ensure that I make at least 20 VP every day. I am sure that many of you are aware that reaching this level will give you an additional share in the daily grand drawing each time you reach this level.

I have found that the new Price benders format makes it very difficult to ensure this will happen. As the auction may take a number of days to be completed and the points are back dated to the day the auction started and this can be well after the daily grand drawing which means that you may not be credited with the additional chance.

I know that this has always been the case, however the new format means that many of the auction have started on the previous day even when a very low bid. This is the point I always used to enure that I was bidding on was started on that day and I would bid early expecting the auction would end on the same day.

In the case of the Pick The Price Game this is not credited until the completion of the order, which again can be well after the day that you originally placed the guess. If you are relying this point to take you to the minimum 20 VP it may not come. As as with the Auction most new auction would finish within 24 meaning that the points would be credited on the day it was made.

I would like to suggest that if possible all Price Bender and Pick a price guess should be credited to the day that the action was made. So that members will know exactly what points they have squired on that date.

Buying @ Pricebenders in Pricebenders #Pricebenders

over 3 years ago

1. Select the product you want to purchase
2. Research the recent prices at the auction for that product
3. Have sufficient T- Credits (I would suggest the average number credits that have won that product over the past three months e.g. average price $1.50 150 you need minimum to even consider entering the biding with the intention of winning.
4. Have patience.
5. Develop an entry and exit strategy
6. Make sure you don’t pay more in T-Credits than the product is worth (including final purchase price).
7. Know your competition ( this may take time)
Finally I cannot reiterate enough you must have patience and be prepared to spend time on the auction site

T-Credit welcome manager in Suggestion Box #Marketing #TCredits #Team Building

over 3 years ago

Dear Gerry

I watch in awe all the new and innovative ways that you are improving the tools and services to help us to build an effective business teams.
The welcome manager is one of the best that I have seen; I have not used it as yet as I am working out the most effective way to use it to build my team at this time.
While am working this out I have one question and regarding this that I have not found answer to as yet.
My question is are the maximum 9 t-Credits that you can give to a team member in the tw welcome included in the maximum lifetime 10 t-credit you can give to members in your down line or are they in additions to these t Credits?
I would also like to suggest an additional field to the TW manager, I receive PSA’s from a number of sources, and I would like to be able to target my TW offer to people from a particular source or a number of sources.
The TW manager could have up to 5 key codes, which would allow setting the number of t Credits to be given maximum number to be issued on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. The number of Target key codes could be linked to the EA, TL s Levels.
I am not very computer savvy, however you have some very clever people working for you in this area and I am sure that they can work out a workable solution, thus making a very valuable tool extraordinary

Clubbing Junior Auctions together? in Pricebenders #Pricebenders

over 3 years ago


I am not quite sure what you mean by clubbing all The junior auction together,
I believe that you are requesting that all the junior auction should be run on its own auction area with only these auction
running on it and all other types of auction be scheduled on the the remaining auction sites so as to limit the disruption to other schedule Auctions as Junior auctions tend to run over time and disrupt service.

If this is the case I would agree however this may reduce reduce the number of junior auction being available for the more inexperienced members and curtail the number of people prepared to attempt auctions

Today when re-visiting our forum I was surprised but very gratified to find that I had been awarded a forum Guru badge. I have not placed very many posts on forum aiming for quality rather than quantity and I have been rewarded for this.

I would like to thank everyone for taking the time to read my post and comment, both the positive comments and the constructive criticism, as this has made me think carefully about what I say and how I say it as, words can easily be misinterpreted.

I would also like to thank everyone who took the time to like my Posts

New Auction Type Proposal !!! (your views) in Pricebenders #Pricebenders #TCredits #TripleClicks

over 3 years ago

Making people illegible to bid due to the timing of there entry is not how auction should be run as I said in my previous post auction rely on strategy a good strategy will win where a poor strategy of just throwing t credits at an auction will not give a positive result.

Adopting this type of game would mean that I would modify my strategy and make one bid early in the auction then hold back until the end.

Achieving the same result, a person with no patience or strategy would pour 100 hrs of t credits into an auction without result, while someone with a effective strategy will win at a reasonable price or get out

New Auction Type Proposal !!! (your views) in Pricebenders #Pricebenders #TCredits #TripleClicks

over 3 years ago


Auctions are all about strategy, part of the planing process is picking your entry point of an auction . I have been involved in many auction both online and in person and have most often used a late entry strategy to win these auctions, it is also important to know you exit point. This the point where you have either reached the maximum you are prepared to pay or the maximum t credits you are prepared to pay.

I would not be in favour of a change in the auctions as suggested, but would recommend patience and strategy to win the auction that interest you.

Fake Names in Team Building #Marketing #Team Building #TripleClicks

over 3 years ago


I am in a similar position I received a PRM with the name "Test Test" however with so many people from so many countries and cultures I do not believe that it would be possible to put a computer program in to automatically exclude certain names.

Many people have nicknames, pen names and stage names for various reason, not only for fraudulent reasons.

I believe the only way to decide whether an account is fake is to examine the actions in the account after it has been created and asses the legitimacy of the account then.

T-Credits instead of product won at auction in Ask Gery #Pricebenders #TCredits #TripleClicks

over 3 years ago

Gerry I agree, so why do certain people have the right to chose t-credit instead of the products that they have won they still have the same opportunity to win t-Credits in the same hundreds of auction as everyone else.

It would then appear that they can go ahead and win a non a non T- Credit auction and convert these into T-Credits and in doing so circumvent the 1 win a day T-Credit rule, which others are faced with and other member disqualified from being involved in some auction due to legislation.

This appear to be a very un-level playing field,

you appear to inferring here that if I want t- Credits I should be only be bidding on T-Credit Auction, in that case should this not be the case for everyone, if they bid on a gold coin that is what they should get, if they want T_Credits that is what they should bid on . This would seem to be a fair solution to the issue.

T-Credits instead of product won at auction in Ask Gery #Pricebenders #TCredits #TripleClicks

over 3 years ago

Gerry with the advent of T-Credits instead of product won at auction being available I would like to suggest that the issue of people in some countries being unable to participate in some auctions due to the legislation in there country should be revisited.
The reason I make this this suggestion that this will enable people to participate in more auction and at times more suitable for them. They should be informed that they cannot receive the product that they are bidding for but can take the prescribed T-Credit allocation only.

I am sure that other member could come up with other reasons that would include a more level playing field for all members

Archana although you cannot exchange VP for T- Credits as a reward for reaching certain levels with SFI you are rewarded with T- Credits at the following levels so in a way every month you exchange VP for t Credits, provided you reach the minimum level. The VP still remain on your account for up t 6 months so that you can gauge how well you are performing within SFI

To combat this I have just spent the last few weeks touring outback Australia each morning I managed to logon to SFI and complete daily, weekly and monthly tasks, I have then closed my browser and not thought of the business at all.

I have now come back and ready to do what needs to be done to be sucessfull
