We get PSAs in Miscellaneous

5 days ago

Hello Сергей,


That just makes "too much" sense, you see the problem is you get sign-ups as they occur and the majority of the sign-ups are from Asian and African countries so you purchase 100 PSA'S for delivery at 10 AM your time and you end up with nobody from the same background as you because they only represent a small fraction of the actual sign-ups at any given time. Now one would think it would all even out over time and Asians would get Asians and Africans would get Africans but the majority of the active members buying the PSA's are Europeans and Americans and the mostly inactive new members are what you are buying. The people who are signing up have no understanding of how SFI works and they are chasing a lie that quick riches are only a membership away because this is the advertisement that is used to lure them into signing up using their own languages. How else is it that we get new PSA's and the very first Google translated question we receive from our new member is "where do I get my SFI money?" To me, that screams of misdirection and all that is created by our demand to buy new PSA. Buy your advertising for recruiting PSA from sources that are offered in your own Slavic languages that will be the only way to break the cycle because too much money is being made selling bogus members currently.

Hidden game suggestion in Suggestion Box #Eager Zebra

6 days ago

Hello Robert,

I see you and I share a passion for the game hidden and a pet peeve about it too. Unfortunately for us web designers are notorious for crowding key areas of play with multiple choices all one on top of another, it's to speed up gameplay as it would be far too arduous to move a mouse all the way over to the other end of the screen to make a different decision. Like Gery said this game is in its beta stage and suggestions like yours are very much needed to enhance the future of Hidden's final design.

When to reassign affiliates for doing nothing in Team Building #PSA #Team Building

7 days ago

Hello Barry,

Congratulations on becoming a silver team leader in your first month. Further congratulations for sponsoring a bronze team leader at the same time period. I have always put inactive members into my active PSA line so they can have working access to a team of their own that they can work within their genealogy and hopefully move into active status. Continued great luck to you and your team!

Suggestion regarding E365 Champion contest in Ask Gery #E365

7 days ago

Hello Keshav,

I can see why the openness of the VP disclosure could possibly create some frustration for certain situations but overall it is in keeping with the general format that currently exists in that profiles always openly displayed total VP of every member. If you are having an issue with staying ahead of your class competition then all I can say is good for you and your class that you have a great spirit amongst the crew and hopefully, it will last as long as you are members at SFI. The spirit of competition always brings out the best in any players game and so be it that it might be a catalyst to create the best SFI class ever with you being privileged as a member to be pushed to true excellence.

How to convince new PSAs in Team Building #Compensation #Getting Started #PSA

9 days ago

Dear George,

I would start off the first meeting saying that the opportunity that you have started with is a free online business course and that you wanted to share that opportunity with as many new friends as possible. We all start from scratch today and we all build our fortunes together as we learn together. You tell them how you started months earlier online and learned a great deal but somehow something was missing and when you realized it was a hands-on sharing experience with new members learning together you decided to put a class together so that the experience would be much fuller. Then you get everyone down to the books signing up and starting smart start and earning Versa Points with their computing devices and your wifi. Should you have success with this plan I am certain you will be training your downline to do the same as your empire grows wildly out of control.

As for all the unanswered questions that nobody can tell with certainty, it all has to do with the activity of the business you create, all our efforts may be for very little for the initial growth but you certainly get nothing from doing nothing. Just be honest and true to yourself and you will do fine.

How to convince new PSAs in Team Building #Compensation #Getting Started #PSA

9 days ago

Hello George,

Have you considered taking the opportunity out to the masses in your own hometown? When you get people to come out and see the free online business training you are offering by doing a weekly lecture where anyone can attend and people can bring their friends. You create a physical presence of the people in your downline and people can share the victories of the past week with each other, you can finalize each get together with a draw for gift certificates, psa's, csa's or just cool stuff you got from SFI. I've never done this because the whole home party thing has been worn out here in Canada by all the cosmetic and cleaning product MLM's years ago. I have noticed some mention with success from the eastern European countries where they tend to be more home-style sociable than over here where we don't even hold children's parties at home anymore.

Spin and Win has Spun and Won. Done. Nada. No more. in VersaPoints #Contests #Getting Started #VersaPoints

10 days ago

Hello Jackie,

I used to check all the posts for the spin and win and I did everyone that was played in my time here yet I never got more than 5VP. I always thought the game was a bit parsimonious considering the real value of VP but I guess SFI couldn't afford more than 1/1000 actual 1000VP winners with the loss of triple clicks ECA sales that might represent. I was just at the verge of abandoning all interest in spin and win when they discontinued the game as I normally get all the VP I need at the beginning of the month anyway.

I think I should stop sending Team mails n E-cards! in Miscellaneous

10 days ago

Hello Keshav,

You have to understand that your team mail is being seen by "someone sometimes" and that is all you can expect for it to do. Now the real issue here is you expecting a response and predicating your future actions based on the lack of returned team mails, very bad form my friend, you are not the belle of the ball here and this isn't your first stag sock hop. Get over it and understand the team mail you send are just like a coach sitting on the sidelines of the game telling the defence to tighten up or letting the forwards know they cover more field when they pass. Do you think the coach is inviting the players back for tea?? It's a game on situation and all you can hope for is being seen by someone sometimes.

The rising entrepreneur in Suggestion Box #Leadership #Localvantia #Rewardical

11 days ago

Hello Xolani,

I'm no expert but I suggest you get Mr. Vodacom to sign up as an affiliate under you and then you offer to have him become an ECA at triple clicks offering rewardical credits for his packages offered. Seems like a simple plan actually just have a few bits of information for him about how he can benefit immediately and over the long haul, (about 5 years). Good luck with the sign up.

TripleClicks Gift Cards in Suggestion Box #TCredits #Team Building #VersaPoints

11 days ago

Hello Thomas,

I won't use the 25 RT gift cards at all for the reason that it is embarrassing to use such a 4 cents come on to ask for someone's business. So you do get enough interest for them to look at the site from the card but when they figure out how to redeem the value they laugh and leave never to be seen again.

If you want the same spending power of the old gift cards you would have to have the denomination upgraded from a 25 RT to 500 RT thereby a gift card can afford the 6 T-credit purchase. Maybe we could specify what we want our gift card values to be so we could order 20 cards at an even 1000 RT value each should we want to get somebody to genuinely appreciate what the offer represents. It just seems like a minuscule evaluation at 25 RT and almost an embarrassment offering such an insignificant amount of RT to entice somebody to set up their business with SFI, as if putting in almost a nickel towards anyone is going to induce them towards any action at all.

Chat room in Suggestion Box

15 days ago

Hello Jelena,

I have made a regular practice of initiating chat upon a new members' arrival for many months now and the results are invariably the same. They ask simply how to make money and when I tell them how SFI works they are gone never to return. Then there are the ones who don't respond at all they sign in and are gone even before I can write a chat message to them as if their agenda was only to sign up and do nothing else. Unfortunately many are expecting they need only sign up and some kind of magic takes over where they will be getting paid regularly from that point forward. It is too bad the instant income mentality exists but the competition is run by deceptive advertising campaigns that promise riches within hours of joining their programs and we have to educate people about the reality of the internet business and its costs to operate successfully. I am afraid the chat element at newbie initiation isn't the way to increase retention or it hasn't been for me anyways.

Option 1 or option 2 ? in Sales #TripleClicks

18 days ago

Hello el kamili,


You should definitely use option 2 as it will generate commisions the header, (option 1 )only gives a webpage without your affiliate link so better to get paid for bringing in a new sale.

Importance Of Managing Your Marketing Minutes!!! in Marketing #Marketing

Hello Bruce,
You are an inspiration to us all because you've been there and done that so we know you speak from experience. Little dribbles of time leaking out everywhere and they seem least contained the younger people are. Like you said people are mistaken about time feeling it's endless but there is still only 24 hours in the day to make the best of.

Hidden is too difficult! in Eager Zebra #Contests #Eager Zebra #Rewardical

24 days ago

Hello Jimmy,

I think Hidden is a great game for those that are learning English because the clues are simple words that relate to the hidden word, it also gives clues down to the last letter so filling in the blank at that point is easy. Don't forget many points can be earned revealing the mystery foxes so you could end up with badges based on sheer luck alone. Keep trying my friend and have fun all the while.

HOW DO I PROFITABLY INVEST A LARGE SUM OF MONEY INTO SFI? in Miscellaneous

27 days ago

Hello Mohammed!

It's wonderful you have so much capital to use for building your SFI business but throwing huge sums of money at SFI might not be your best course because you could, in consequence, create a huge unmanageable mess and rather than gaining forward momentum so that you could end up stuck in a quagmire. Budgeting the cash flow should create more manageable results and give you a plan for adjusting to a hyper-growth rate with your business. My choice in such a situation would be an extensive team building model based on well-sculpted team mail letters that are timed from beginning to end to handle the huge volume of PSA that you can generate, first you start off easy with 10 new PSA a day while you create a training and advice set of team emails you send out on the first through to seventh days of your new PSA's initiation. Include in-house team contests using VP as the grade for winners and PSA's and gift certificates as prizes. As your follow-up letters are set in stone for all the initiation process you can then increase your daily PSA count by manageable degrees as you get used to the system of bringing in ever larger groups of PSA. When your system gets to be self-replicating with ease ramp up your counts and watch the system grow all by itself. I know a short paragraph is way to little information to actually be a button down plan but the long and short of what I am getting at here is you need to plan to succeed because money alone can do very little by itself.
