Pyramidal business

How can I convince a prospect that SFI is not pyramidal. There is now a band on any form of pyramidal business in my country

Unless their mind is already set, I would ask if they can join (free) and have them check it out themselves by learning all of our good training and associating with our leaders and affiliates. Pyramid normally asks them to pay to join - and we do not.

Israel, I suggest you try to find out through Google what a pyramidal business is. Then compare this to SFI and see if there is any similarity between the two.. As a Bronze Leader you now know many things about SFI. Do you think it is a pyramidal business?

In a pyramidal business the ones at the top always earn more than the bottom, and earning depends only on referring more people and getting them to buy. But in SFI, you have potential to earn more than your sponsor, or their sponsor, simply by making more sales, or making more personal referrals and having more co-sponsors. And there is no requirement to purchase anything if you can make sales to others. Someone joining today has almost unlimited earning potential through many income streams, which doesn't happen with a pyramid scheme. If I refer someone today and they start making a lot of Triple Clicks sales, or start their own ECA store, they could be earning more than me.

Hi Israele,well as explained by your friends I remember that pyramid activities are banned by federal law in the USA and Europe. This is a good reason for your friends. Carlo

[quote=948847]How can I convince a prospect that SFI is not pyramidal. There is now a band on any form of pyramidal business in my country[/quote] You are not restricted to a set width, your structure could be thousands of top level referrals and only hundreds of bottom tier affiliate which would hardly be a Pyramid but shape has nothing to do with law. Even a pyramid shape like the recommended 5x5x12 structure does not make it a Scam. We are an affiliate program, you never have to spend a dime, and we do not over inflate prices on a company owned product to afford a elaborate pay plan even an accountant and a Lawyer couldn't understand. If they don't understand that they aren't right for any business even as an employee because the local fast food restaurant has 1 boss, a couple managers, and several employees who all depend on thousands of customers to get paid.

Hi Israel, most corporations are pyramid structure, like; President, vice president, executive manager, floor manager, workers. The odd of a worker in large corporation to reach vice president not likely! Same go for Your country president the odds of a worker whom campaigns for there president. Won't become vice president! So the people at bottom never reach top triangle. Here in SFI you can reach top level before your sponsor, co-sponsor or most upline members. Meaning were not a pyramid business. :office:

SFI is not band in your country. SFI must be a legitimate business. You have been given links and reasons to convince your prospect. What does your prospect really want? A way to opt out! It is human nature to envy success. Give your prospect a motive to succeed.

Hi Israel, There are a number of active PSAs with EA, BTL and GTL status whose sponsors are inactive. This proves that in SFI, one earns based on the amount of work that one puts in. Your success in SFI has nothing to do with the success of those above you because you can surpass your Sponsors and Co-Sponsors if you are a more efficient worker.
