How Many Times Should I Try To Close ????? in Marketing #Marketing

6 hours ago


You are correct.
"How many times should I try to close?"
As many as it takes.

Getting to "YES" is not always an easy proposition, nor is the path to "YES" always strait forward. Meander a bit. Take the scenic route. Sometimes it takes a bit longer, but the reward is well worth the journey.

Really in the Badges Quest' I'm going backward! in Compensation

6 days ago

If it were easy, we would all be Grand Master Elite.
The powers that be at SFI keep things fresh, moving, and always a challenge. Worth noting: these challenges are always rewarding.
Due to the extremely fluid grading system of Badge Quest, I may be 200 points away from my next milestone in the morning; by the same evening I am 2,000 points away. C'est la vie. This is supposed to be a challenge, yes?
Work hard, do more than the minimum required, play the games, and sell, Sell, SELL...you'll notice your badges increasing inexorably.

New Signups Asking For Money in Team Building #Sponsor #Team Building

7 days ago


This is not an uncommon practice. There are countries where the term "sponsor" is a literal implication of financial support.
You are right to encourage your team members to "work for their business." Perhaps another go at LaunchPad (or at least a thorough first reading) would be a good suggestion.

Much success to you!

LOST .... Reward Offered !!! in Miscellaneous #Eager Zebra #TripleClicks

10 days ago

Click on your affiliate picture. Your Snapshot page will appear, along with SFI Badges.
Go to the bottom of that page; you will see a series of dots. Those indicate pages you may scroll to. Scroll to (I believe) the fifth page, you will see your T-Time badge displayed.

Now...check and see if you have somehow set it to NOT appear on your leadership page. Reverse that action.

Receive More Marketing Interest By Asking More Questions! in Marketing #Marketing

12 days ago

Hi Bruce,

I absolutely agree it's wise to get the prospect talking. Advice on a product, however, has a 50% chance of not having a positive outcome. I don't like those odds.
What I favor, is getting the prospect to talk about themselves (people LOVE to talk about themselves!). Engage the prospect. He/she will tend to share insights with you, and this works to build a relationship. Nurture this relationship; get them to "Yes."

Challenges that can be reported via support desk or forum in Getting Started #Leadership

"So poorly in the forum"??? Randy, you are the Number 1 Forum Guru! NUMBER ONE!!!
Haha! See what I did there ?!?
I tend to use capital letters for emphasis, as well. I have been admonished by those who are responsible for such things for doing so. No, my caps lock isn't broken, I'm not shouting, I am merely emphasizing. It's a thing.

Thank you, Randy.
I recall she had opted out a few years ago due to health issues, but then came back stronger than ever.
Hope all is well and that she makes a triumphant return.

Has anyone heard from/been in contact with our friend Mary B? She is usually fairly active within the Forum, but I don't recall having seen a post from her in a considerable time.

Qualify EA before 10th and after 10th difference in Team Building #Compensation #PSA #Team Building

With all due respect, EA does NOT "come with Booster Club membership."

Your Booster Club membership came on the first of the month with your Auto-Delivery.

Much success to you!

Why Signups Join Then Optout 3 Seconds Later in Team Building #PSA #Team Building

19 days ago


I believe you're referring to the "tire kickers," the "lookie-loos," the "I want to make a million dollars on the internet overnight and without working" mindset individuals. They're plentiful. Also, they are not the workers you are looking for.

Question for $ Million? in Team Building #Getting Started #Leadership #Team Building

25 days ago


This business is entirely a numbers game. For that very reason, why choose width or depth???
Choose width AND depth!!!
We are, none of us, frankly, in a position to limit our options. Choosing width OR depth definitely limits our business expansion, while choosing BOTH allows for our business to grow exponentially.

The sky's the limit, if only we don't limit ourselves.

Gold Plated Fast Track Pin in Suggestion Box

27 days ago

Plating the Fast Track pin would be a very costly endeavor.
With all due respect...as this pin currently serves as an incentive to affiliates, your suggestion of charging a fee to said affiliates for the plating process would make it less an incentive and more an encumbrance.

SFI Team Work in Team Building #Pricebenders #PSA #Team Building

Agreed, we are all independent business owners; however, any level beyond BTL is very much reliant upon the actions/activities of our downlines. We rise or we fall TOGETHER.
None of us can reach the level of DIAMOND TEAM LEADER without our teams. Much as we strive for success, it is ultimately our downline that determines said success. If you are blessed with such a downline, help them also achieve the levels (ranks) they desire at your earliest opportunity. We ARE in this together.

Welcome to SFI!
I cannot stress enough the importance of the LaunchPad lessons. If you've read them (rocket icon at top of your affiliate page) I encourage you to read them again. Study them; truly absorb the information. Then...read them again.

Much success to you!

Biz Quiz Correct Answers Percentage in Miscellaneous #Contests

about 1 month ago

Early in my SFI days, I often forgot to answer Biz Quiz. My solution (and I use this method still!) is to NOT turn my WIN IT tab green until I have answered Biz Quiz. The moment I do answer Biz Quiz is also the moment I turn my WIN IT tab green. Now, I know at a glance if I've answered or not.
