Kudos to our top Forum Gurus! in SFI News

about 1 hour ago

AGAIN, Gliceria, no one unfollowed you. We simply removed persons from the database who were no longer affiliates, the people who are removed daily from everyone's Genealogy after a year of inactivity. It happened to everyone who had followers. You did nothing wrong! There's absolutely no need to be looking back at this. You're loved here!

NO ONE unfriended you, dear! We simply corrected a major oversight and removed the people who were no longer SFI affiliates. Everyone experienced the same thing as was announced. And OF COURSE you deserve your Forum Guru badge as evidenced by the massive number of votes you've received from your peers!

As I explained, very few are opt outs. But thousands of people every month reach one year without a login and hence lose their affiliate status. This was your drop. Please don't take it personally. The future is bright!

Yep, those no longer SFI affiliates (not just opt outs who are a very tiny percentage) were rightly removed after you alerted us to this oversight. Now everything is kept up to date so a big drop should never happen again.

Discouraged PSAs!!! in Marketing #Contests #TCredits #Team Building

16 hours ago

Hi Phil,

I appreciate your feedback. We're always working on it and we've got tons of new things we'll be doing in the months to come in this area, but there's a fine line between promoting and what feels like "harassment," spam, whatever you want to call it. We of course don't want to be blacklisted by the major ISPs for being considered part of the latter. With MILLIONS of members, if even a tiny, tiny percentage yell "spam," we could be completely shut down as far as email marketing to our members goes. I'm sure you agree that would be a disaster...so we have to be conservative in our marketing to members. But hang in there with us; we're going to get there!

Powerful new feature added to Scoreboard tab! in SFI News #Compensation #Team Building

16 hours ago

First, remember that your CSAs are someone else's PSAs...and visa versa. But, yes, this new feature is designed to get our incredible earnings opportunity out their prominently, so it's not overlooked! I fully expect it to create new excitement across the board! However, you can help yourself create new waves of momentum by making sure all of your affiliates, especially new recruits, know about and use the Earnings Calculator. Just point them to the Scoreboard -- www.sfimg.com/Home?tab=scoreboard -- and tell them to check it out.

Special Note! The BENEFITS portion of the panel is currently down for some code correction, but should be back early tomorrow. I recommend holding off on any messages to your downline until the benefits portion is back.

Sure it does. The more CV they personally generate, the more you'll earn in Co-Sponsor Commissions.

Powerful new feature added to Scoreboard tab! in SFI News #Compensation #Team Building

16 hours ago

Hi Ray,

It's your estimated monthly earnings after six months of hitting the marks you've set (the numbers you entered in the Earnings Calculator). There is of course a "compounding effect" with each month going forward. "Slow and steady wins the race." For example, 3x3 = 27. 3x27 = 81. 81x3 = 243. And so on. This is what's known as exponential growth of course and it's all about duplication and teaching that duplication ever downward. Indeed, it's THE KEY--always has been--for creating great wealth in network marketing. If you're not focused on duplication, you're missing the boat.

Tip: Our reassignment tool is fantastic for this if you're able to generate lots of sign-ups...and/or use Opti-Build (which essentially does it for you automatically).

Benefites of your Downline EAs in Compensation

19 hours ago

Hi Anda,

That's just not the right way to look at it. Four quick examples:

1. You can redeem your Rewardicals for TripleClicks gift certificates (i.e., cash to buy anything at TripleClicks).

2. You can redeem your Rewardicals for Bitcoin (we've doled out hundreds of dollars in Bitcoin just in the last couple weeks alone--could be worth tens of thousands of dollars in a few years as many financial experts expect it to increase in value by over 50x its current value).

3. You can redeem your Rewardicals for PSAs or CSAs (or S-Builder Co-op units that can generate PSAs), any one of which could be worth hundreds or thousands of dollars over time.

4. You can redeem your Rewardicals for VersaPoints...which can help you advance your rank to earn Team Overrides on additional generations. This alone could be worth many thousands of dollars annually.

Are Rewardicals valuable? IMMENSELY! Can Rewardical earn you money? ABSOLUTELY!

Benefites of your Downline EAs in Compensation

19 hours ago

But with all due respect, Aferdita, you've got it wrong. For example, you can redeem your Rewardicals for TripleClicks gift certificates (cash to buy anything at TripleClicks) and Bitcoin (we've doled out hundreds of dollars in Bitcoin--which could be worth tens of thousands of dollars in a few years-- just in the last couple weeks alone).

And, yes, there's not a direct VP payout now, but considering a VersaPoint was worth only a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a cent, very little was actually given up here...and in return you now can earn tremendously more. I would strongly encourage you to go back and review the June 1st announcement and really focus on what has replaced the Executive Pool and the powerful benefits, such as:

1. Until now, there have been only indirect earnings (from Matching VP) available on retail sales at TripleClicks generated by your group members. Now, you can earn overrides directly on every sale made by the affiliates in your group…infinitely deep…on ALL sales at ALL Zing Network sites (purchases at Rewardical.com, from Localvantia merchants, etc.)!

2. Previously, all CV (Commission Volume) on Localvantia and Rewardical sales just went into the Executive Pool. Now, Direct Commissions, Co-Sponsor Commissions, and Team Overrides are earned and paid out directly on ALL these vendor sales! To put it another way, whenever a vendor dishes out Rewardicals to a customer, commissions to Sponsors, Co-Sponsors, and 12 upline EAs/Team Leaders are immediately generated!

3. We have the ability to do Instant Pays on ALL commissions (no need to wait until days after a month ends to calculate share values). Speaking of share values, you can now erase this term from your SFI vocabulary. No more worrying about shares values, whether they’re increasing or decreasing; just focus on building your business, adding to your team, referring new members, and generating sales!

it is time, that Uplines only sent messages to their own PSA in Suggestion Box

1 day ago

I absolutely understand and that's why we have the following warning text on the Upline Team page:

------------
Note: Keep in mind that different people use different strategies and concepts. To avoid confusion, you may want to contact your team members one at a time so as not to receive what might appear to be conflicting advice. That said, we recommend introducing yourself to ALL the members of your Upline Support Team so you may work together for mutual, maximum success. Remember, TEAM stands for Together Everyone Achieves More.
-----------

However, for every upline member that is causing "duress," there are likely 100 or more who are fulfilling a very important role. Indeed, "I never hear from my sponsor!" remains one the biggest complaints in SFI. To restricts upline persons would just make this situation even worse (now they can't hear from ANYONE upline!).

If the messages are literally spam, cross solicitation, or disparagement (a violation of the SFI Affiliate Agreement), REPORT IT!...and the person will be banned from mailing, suspended, or terminated.

Hi Mary,

As I've explained before, you're looking at it wrong. We didn't change this so people could have four co-sponsors. We changed it so we could incentivize new members to get started, get engaged, go EA, etc.! How? New members, via Smart Start, can now receive four times as many CSAs for getting started. All these CSAs also provides ample motivation to maintain EA status every month once they get to EA so they don't forfeit all their CSAs. So, again, look at it from the other side and you'll see that it makes very good sense to have changed from 1 to 4.

Points to this cooperation in Suggestion Box #Team Building

1 day ago

1. We have covered this here on the forum so many times and in the announcement on June 1st, which stated:

Special Note: With up to three more Co-Sponsors now in the mix, it’s critical that all persons supporting new affiliates (Sponsors, upline Team Leaders, and Co-Sponsors) clearly know their role. Please review this important new “Leadership Do’s & Don’ts” article so that you are providing proper support while not overstepping your responsibilities.

2. That is incorrect. You now earn MORE. From the June 1st announcement:

Important note: For all existing, currently-assigned CSAs, the current Co-Sponsor will be populating TWO of the Co-Sponsor “slots.” So, instead of 15% commissions, you’re now going to be earning 16% (8% x 2)!

3. Here you go:

Hi Suzy,

Please provide your definition of upline. Your sponsor is your most immediate upline member...and you can of course rate your sponsor because they have a responsibility for support. No other persons upline have this direct responsibility, however, so an official rating form is at least somewhat illogical. And of course you can always contact your upline members and let them know how much you appreciate them. You don't need an official ratings from from us to compliment your upline members. If I'm misunderstanding your suggestion, please advise. Thank you.

Pricebender Auctions - For Zingers Only in Pricebenders #Pricebenders

2 days ago

As was alluded to when we announced Astro Auctions, Pricebenders would quite possibly not survive. At this time, we will continue it for SFI affiliates who are interested in PSAs, CSAs, S-Builder Co-op units, etc....so long as there are bidders. But as a product for non affiliates, no, it's looking like it has run its course and we will be moving our auction full focus to Astro as expected.

Discouraged PSAs!!! in Marketing #Contests #TCredits #Team Building

2 days ago

Actually, sir, there are game companies that make over a million dollars DAILY in sales. It is a hugely profitable space to be in. According to a recent report, there were more than 2.2 billion active gamers in the world in 2017. And 47% of those spent money while playing, generating $108.9 billion in game revenues that year! What's more, those numbers are only expected to grow in the coming years.

That said, our focus is not on games. Our focus is on SALES...of which games can be part of... if you want. We offer nearly 100,000 products to sell at TripleClicks (these include goods and services, auctions and, yes, games). ALL designed so you have a wide variety of products to sell and earn commissions from. Choose what you're passionate about. Clearly, you are not interested in marketing games...so don't; promote some of our other tens of thousands of products.
