A Thought Mr Gery in Ask Gery #Getting Started #PSA #Team Building

about 1 month ago

I am very excited about the new Smart Start program. I did have a thought about our inactive PSA. I have close to 2000 inactive. I did a survey not too long ago and had several of them answer me. All of them said they were just overwhelmed. Is there anything we can do about this for these people? A chance to restart with a special link giving them access to the new program?
Probably not all would activate but some of them probably would.
Just a thought

Reassigned PSA/Inactive PSA From registration. in Team Building #PSA #Team Building

5 months ago

In the case of bought PSA you will usually find 1-4% active members but can buy 100 a not get one then on the next 100 get 6 actives etc.. There is no guarantee of activity at first as these are live sign ups and most of them join just to get information about the program to see if it is right for them.

Give them the right information and they become active, don't give them the right information they are gone 1 year from sign up. Never give up on anyone, I myself had health issues cause my inactivity for 10 months. Others logged in 1 day a year for years before getting active in SFI, so don't be alarmed this is all normal.

I agree about reassigning to the language spoken. Google Translate can only do so much.

As to reassignments your sponsor is probably assigning people he/she thinks you may be able to get active in SFI, I can't speak for them but don't scoff at the gift or they will stop giving you these vital leads.

I give away a lot of PSA's, some as soon as I get them and others that I know are inactive to individuals with the same language. My thinking is that just because I can't get them interested, maybe someone who speaks the same language an lives 'just around the corner' could easily do a better job than me.

Is There Any Advantage? in Team Building #CSA

7 months ago

I have so many wonderful CSA on my team. I would like to do more than send them an E-Card or recognize them on the stream. Is there any advantage to add them to a Co-op?
Thanks for your answers in advance

Where Might Be The Video's? in Getting Started #Getting Started #Marketing #Team Building

7 months ago

OK in the last week I have seen two references to SFI Beginning Videos and if I recall they were done by Gery and put emphasis on Daily Activites. Where would I find these videos? I agree more needs to be done to make sure new PSA understand the importance of this. I did my own videos and I send them out to my people as they come in. Do they watch them? I see no evidence that they pay attention. (I have views) So can anyone tell me where to find videos that will emphasize daily?

Hello all my SFI Awesome Forum People,
I would like to do more face to face with my new people that have done their commitment letter. What have you found the best way to connect is? Skype? Zoom? Or is there something else I know nothing about?
Blessings,

My Co-op in Team Building #Auto-Delivery #PSA #Team Building

10 months ago

I am need of some real guidance with my Co-op. Before the Builders Bundle, I had S-Builder and it went in the Co-op.

I had PSA To Go and they also went in. Any PSA I got at Auction whether won or built went in there. So it was not just S-Builder.

I dropped out of Opti-Build and set up another Co-op for my team but I kept the Builder Bundle and PSA To Go thinking that the PSA from them would go into the Co-op.

I am being told I have to only do the Co-op with S-Builder. Why is that Gery?

If it can only be done that way I need to know ASAP so I can change my order. Can it be changed so Builder Bundle goes to the Co-op if you are not part of Opti-Build?

Thank you

New price for 1 TCredit for 150 MRPs. in Sales #VersaPoints

10 months ago

Thank you for your answers everyone. That is why we are family because we work together so well. While I very much disagree with the hike. (Little things I have noticed over the last couple of years VP being taken away on actions or cut in half) so you have to push harder (or spend more.) There was a post from Melinda G on one of the threads I agree with. Many affiliates are struggling already to reach any kind of money. She said many will be rethinking being involved with SFI and I agree with that also. They may have been around for almost 20 years but the harder corporate makes it especially for new PSA the less success we are going to have with building any kind of sustainable business. Sad :(

Confused about Compensation in Team Building #Compensation #PSA #Team Building

12 months ago

I asked the question the way on purpose :) Thank you for your perspective on Opti-Build. I am still making a decision. My other thought is my direct upline is not part of Opti-Build so I am getting nothing from above. My position is #3 from Corporate. My sponsor is Platinum but he buys it all and never communicates. I find that very sad.




Hi Chris,

First, let me apologize if you found my response blunt or curt as I could not believe that you as a STL and looking at your Affiliate Snapshot which is very commendable and far better than mine, could not figure out the compensation plan.

So you would have noticed that all the responses from other Affiliates went on to explain the Compensation Plan to you. But in fact, you were seeking clarification on Opti-Build and its impact on your earnings. Sometimes it is good to be specific then you get the right responses.

Having said that, my humble opinion on Opti-Build is it is a great way to build your team and aligns well with the PLAN. It has an impact on your earnings when your PSAs get reassigned coz you lose your direct commissions from them but you get compensated by matching VPs as these reassigned PSAs are still part of your downline and team.

There has been ample discussion on Opti-Build in the Forum after it was launched on April 1st, 2017 and I for one would recommend it although I opted out in June for personal reasons. But I shall return.

As SFI puts it, it is an optimal way of building your team and if you read the SFI News on it I am sure you will get the hang of it, judging from your seniority and experience.

I will not say much more as there many 'Gurus' of Opti-Build out there who can provide better information and please 'Gurus' please correct me if I have said anything wrong.

I was not offended at all by your query and again please accept my apologies if I offended you with my response.No offense taken and No offense intended.

Cheers and have a nice day.

Yes, I have been around but never paid too much attention until OptiBuild came into being and my commissions started to go down a bit. So I was asking for clarification as to rather I should be having PSA go down 4 levels when I do not get paid for them. So my apologies if my question has offended you as I had a reason for it.

OK Tall Ship Pirate Cruise,
I know you have been around a long time can you answer me this: If I am only getting $$$ on my 1st level is it still to my advantage to do OptiBuild and have the PSA going down 4 levels???? I am really trying to figure this out.
