What I do When I Have No Money to Reach EA each month in Miscellaneous

22 hours ago

I feel you, Teresa, for me some months are like robbing Peter to pay Paul.

I have to figure out which bills I can let slide until next month so that the really important bills can get paid this month.

I had to really struggle this month to make it back to EA, it's a good thing that I had enough Rewardicals to get TCredits to do the AA so I can get more Rewardicals to exchange for VPS.

I always try to have enough money each month to do my auto delivery, but it's not easy when you are on a very tight, restricted budget.

Good luck to you and keep up the good work.

Don't Fall For Those False Put-Offs!-How?? in Marketing #Marketing

22 hours ago

Hi Bruce, thank you for another insightful post.

I would tell him that I am all booked up and need to talk with him/her now because I don't have any more time. This causes an instant of now or never. Which might get them to decide now.

Causing an urgency tells people that you are very busy and only have a limited time frame to work with. And we should always ask if we can call them later that day to make sure of their decision.

Follow up is crucial if we want to keep this person interested.

Good luck to you in your business.

Is it luck or there are technics for sponsorship in Team Building #Sponsor #Team Building

5 days ago

Hi Morgan, hope all is well with you.

There are no special techniques involved with sponsoring. It is up to the individual to decide to be active or not.

As the saying goes: "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't force him to drink."

All we can do is advise and guide our team members and hope that they become or stay active.

Just keep communicating with them, who knows, maybe one day something you say may resonate with them and make them become active.

Good luck and much success to you.

Instill Faith & Courage In Your Contacts With Pessimists!!! in Getting Started #Getting Started

5 days ago

Thank you for another great post, Bruce.

I agree that we need to not only talk to the optimists but also the pessimists.

It would be easy to get an optimist to sign up because they are looking for the good in everything. On the other hand, we need pessimists also because they only see the negative and we can offer them the opportunity to see how good our business is and how we can help them achieve success for themselves.

Thanks again and good luck with your business.

Powerful new Starter Incentives program is here! in SFI News #Team Building

5 days ago

Thank you, Gery, for another great incentive to get more active PSAs.

I will be interested in seeing if this actually works.

I will give it a shot and see if I get more active PSAs because I now have no one who is active.

Will you be introducing this type of incentive for PRMs at some time?

Thanks again for coming up with ways for us to succeed in our businesses.

Why Do We Lose Some Customers? in Marketing #Marketing

9 days ago

Hi Bruce, I totally agree with you.

We need to learn to listen to the verbal and nonverbal clues our potential customer gives us.

If we don't give them time to answer and let us know what they want, then we are missing a vital part of the selling process.

A customers words and body language will tell you much about how that person is feeling about us and our products/services.

Good luck, dear sir.

Tons of clicks but no buyers in Sales #Marketing #Sales

I have set up a Facebook page where I show the products and have a direct link to each product, I also advertise on free classified ad sites.

I don't have a blog or website because I don't know how to set either one up.

On my Facebook page, I have also asked for suggestions on what products or services they would like to see. No one has responded to that yet.

The crucial role of setting goals in the business in Team Building #Compensation #Marketing #Team Building

12 days ago

Hi Kaddour, thank you for reminding us of the importance of setting goals for our business.

If we don't set goals, how will we know when we have reached them? Every business has to set goals, whether they do business online or not.

If a business doesn't have goals then they will never succeed because they will not be able to see if there is growth in their business or not and won't be able to adjust and compensate for any shortcomings they have had.

Goals show us how far we have come and how far we have to go in order to succeed and help us determine if we need to do something different to reach those goals.

Good luck in 2019!

Beware of “router hack” email scams in Miscellaneous

12 days ago

Hi Chris, thank you for informing us of this new way that hackers are trying to scam us.

Unfortunately, there are many of these hackers and we need to become aware of them so we can stay safe.

My suggestion is that every time you get one of these emails, immediately run your antivirus/ antimalware program to make sure nothing was done to harm your system.

Good luck to you in 2019!

Uncredited actions points ! in VersaPoints #Getting Started #VersaPoints

19 days ago

Hi Sunny, if you have done the Getting Started actions and have not gotten the points, I would suggest you send a ticket to support and have them check on it.

I had to do this a few times and I was finally able to get the points awarded.

Please relax and take things slowly so you can really learn and understand everything.

Good luck.

Goals tab -- Who reads our Goals? in Miscellaneous

20 days ago

Hi Bulelwa, Happy New Year and welcome to SFI.

I think if we want to have a reminder of what we say our goals are on a daily basis we should write them down on paper and keep it in front of us as a reminder.

We don't really need a separate area on SFI for it.

This is, of course, just my opinion.

Good luck to you and everyone at SFI.

The more you know, then more is required of you... in Team Building #Leadership #Team Building

20 days ago

Hi Solomon, Happy New Year! Thank you for this great post.

I am wondering if we can somehow use it to get our teams more active? Perhaps if we went through their profiles and looked at what they say is something they need help with, we might be able to use that as a conversation starter and use it to help them understand about the help available on SFI.

If we let them come up with the resolution on their own and let them know that we are willing to help them resolve their problem they just might become more active.

Do you think this might work? Please let me know your ideas or suggestions.

For me, 2019 is going to be different.

I am going to log in every day, check my messages, once weekly I will send my team a message about any new developments here in SFI and tips on how to become successful.
I am going to advertise SFI and Tripleclicks more. I am going to promote my Facebook page more and I am going to reply to more friends messages on Facebook.

I always renew my AD at the beginning of every month so that I retain BTL status, but next month I am going to do my best to advance to at least STL.

Merry Christmas and a very Successful New Year to you and everyone in SFI!

Take the right attitude in Getting Started #Getting Started #Leadership #Team Building

about 1 month ago

Hi Sreten, I am an optimist and always have been. I do not let anything bother me.
When I have a problem or situation I look for a solution.

If I encounter someone who has a negative attitude, I ask them to try to find a positive outlook to replace the negativity. This helps them to turn things around and also helps their critical thinking skills. If they can find a positive to replace their negative then they are one step closer to looking at things from a brighter perspective.

My attitude towards everything is: "Okay, this happened, now how can I fix it?" In this way, I am improving my decision-making skills and improving how to handle anything that comes up.

May you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy and Successful New Year!

Good luck in everything you do!
