Leadership Pages - have they fallen away? in Team Building #Leadership #Sponsor #Team Building

14 minutes ago

Thanks for the post.
Personally, I think it is outdated.

I have been using Stream post to the max.
Since it is on the To Do List, our teams will see it daily.

I send them links to great posts they need to read.
I give advice about playing games, advertising, and communication.

No matter where we live, the Chat is good anytime.
When the recipient logs in, it bobs up and down.

Permission to Do My Own Title Rewrites in Suggestion Box

3 hours ago

First thing is to use paragraphs. It makes your post easier to read.
Sometimes I just use 2 or 3 sentences and then space them.

Suggested titles can be seen as you start a new post.
Maybe your title was used before.

team building by advertising in Team Building #Marketing #Team Building

7 hours ago

I am the expert on this one by accident.
Years ago (1999) I did not have a clue how you became successful in Network Marketing.

I joined safe-lists when they were new and offered lifetime membership for $25-50.
I advertised 3 of them in each other.
Only joined those that let me keep my ads on their site and let me read 10-25 ads before I could advertise.
E-mail ads I just do a few if I feel like it.

Learned how to make a banner and post it.
Learned how to drop HTML into a banner post on a blog or traffic exchange.

These skills are needed to advertise.
Next I used the Notepad to save advertising so I could copy/paste it.

Ads were categorized by" free" , "upgraded", and "want to upgrade" later.
Upgraded get advertised daily and not upgraded every 3 days.

I had no business but had lots of referrals.
Referrals give you advertising credits when they surf.
Adding a business, you just need to add a tracking code to see where your hits are coming from.
I use my blogs, the JMSFIT website with my picture on it and all the Rewardicals advertising.

Result is I get PRM"s as well as PSA"s.

How many ad places do I need? I have 15 upgraded,18 free and 5-10 I am looking at right now.

No bid assist ? in Pricebenders

1 day ago

I wish there were many many auctions with smaller prizes.
Then we can do it like off line.
I refuse to stay at an auction for hours just to loose.

Let"s make it fair to all.
No way will I advertise these.
They are for the leaders with lots of T credits.

What I do is spend one T credit a day on auctions.
If it is at the end,it must be less than 10 seconds for me to contribute.
I have won 3 big prize auctions and several little ones.

Make increasing your team your first goal.

SFI and websites! in Sales #Marketing #TripleClicks

1 day ago

Looks like you are majoring in games here.

To get down to business,I use the Rewardicals website for advertising.
You get both PSA"s and PRM"s.
I also use their banners and text ads.
I only use SFI"s wording too.

Advertise daily.
As your team grows this business will become more fun.

There are many ways to communicate with your team.
In my Welcome Letter, I list them.

I use Chat and let my team know I will answer them as soon as I get on line.
Since no one but our team sees the Stream post, I include my e-mail for easy access to communicate.

I also tell my team to make a list of questions they have for me.
Go to the Forum with a specific question.
Best to get the lines of communication open at the beginning,so the new Team Members get familiar with them.

How To Earn Maximum Income As A Basic Affiliate Only in Marketing #Marketing #Sales #TripleClicks

4 days ago

To earn one must be at least an EA.
If not, you will loose all your CSA"s rather you won them,paid for them or was awarded them.
Best way to earn by selling is to have a blog.

All my blogs use the JMSFIT "call to action" because it has my picture on it.
My blogs have 3 columns.Center one is for text,links to my other blogs, an links to my
favorite SFI pages and advertising places.

This type of blog contains banners in both outside columns related to SFI.
Be sure to include some Product Collections to earn income.

When you are a business owner,you must work long hours rather on line or off line.
Since I do not want to do all the work myself, I have Auto-ship.
How much do I earn? I have earned more each month than the month before all year.

I went on a 10 day cruise in March.

Bothered by Inactive PSA and Team Leaders? in Team Building #Leadership #Team Building

5 days ago

There are many reasons for inactivity.
I moved just lately.
One day somehow I did not log in.

One of my PSA"s is sick and waiting for surgery. We are in contact or I would not know that.
My past sponsor has had 3 deaths in her family this past year.

The unexpected happens to all of us.
Most times it is not just lazy.

Using SFI materials in our ads gives them a professional look.
Besides, all information is accurate.

I also include text and banner ads that include my picture.
That is called "branding yourself. "

Suggestions for my two problems in Suggestion Box #PSA

12 days ago

I too think you should retain the CSA"s you paid for.

But instead of helping yourself, help your team.
First get to EA by logging in every day.
Do not spend your Rewardicals till the following month so you can get some free

I get myself to EA.Then I help 2 workers get to EA.That gets me to BTL.

New people? Long time ago I started to purchase a one hundred buck Gift Certificate.
Gave each new person $10 with a 10 day expiration. If they do not use it, I get it back.
Then use it to help your workers or new people.
Gift Certificates are the gift that keeps on giving.

ZackJack can be frustrating at times! in Eager Zebra #Eager Zebra

18 days ago

Think about this.
The Ace is either worth 11 points or 1 point.
So try to attach 2 cards worth 10 points before you draw the Ace.

To do better purchase 200 matches with 24 T credits at the beginning of the month.
This gives you Rewardicals as well as more chances to win.

Second pile of cards:
Use just one 10 point card and one or 2 lower cards.

3rd pile
Put all the lower cards here you do not need for the other 2 piles.
When you have 6, that is a ZackJack no matter if the pile is 21 or under.
One color ZackJack is worth more.
I get 3 ZackJacks out of 10 tries every day.

Probably better to ask for 3 log in days to receive one free CSA.

Newbie needs help in Getting Started #Auto-Delivery #Contests #TCredits

First time I went through Launchpad, I took notes.Also made a page for abbreviations.
Also I made the page larger.
Just hold down the CTRL key and roll the mouse wheel.

One thing that helps is to do the daily To Do List.
You can take a break from lessons, and click on the tabs on your Home page.
It is a lot to learn at first.
