SFI Weekly News (February 1, 2016)
It’s a fresh, new week (and month)! Check out some of SFI’s newest developments to help you reach new heights this week!
NEW FAST-TRACK EXTENSIONS PROGRAM
We are very excited to announce a new program for firing up your team!
Here’s how it works:
In your Genealogy, on the OTHER tab, there is now a new Fast-Track column. For all eligible PSAs (i.e. those not already Fast-Track Gold or in the current standard Fast-Track window), you can now extend to them a special 72-hour window to become a Fast-Track member (or upgrade from Silver to Gold) by simply clicking the “Extend FT” link located in the new Fast-Track column.
>>> Get fully up to speed on the Fast-Track program here:
Upon issuing a Fast-Track extension, your PSA will receive a special e-mail from SFI alerting them to your generous offer, what they need to do to go Fast-Track, and the deadline for acting.
Once they’ve taken the necessary action (e.g. a $20 purchase/sale or setting up a 1500 VP Standing Order within the 72-hour window), they’re in! They will immediately receive the prestigious Fast-Track badge; 250 Bonus VersaPoints, Fast-Track Member Certificate (suitable for framing); and 30 free entries in the Daily Grand drawing.
The beautiful Fast-Track lapel pin will also be earmarked for them. They’ll also immediately have the $40 or $100 Signing Bonus added to their account!
And the biggest benefit of all…they’ll now be eligible every month for the 10% Bonus Shares of the TripleClicks Executive Pool (this alone is potentially worth hundreds of extra dollars in commissions every year).
One more thing: Anyone who goes Fast-Track Gold will immediately earn EA2 status for themselves!

PICK UP VP FOR EVERY TCREDIT YOU SPEND ON EZ GAMES!
Effectively immediately, all SFI Affiliates can now earn a VersaPoint on EVERY TCredit they spend playing Eager Zebra games. This doesn’t just apply to game entries but ANY TCredits spent on a Sidekick or on other in-game help, for example–up to 500 VP/month total!
Head over to Eager Zebra games (https://www.tripleclicks.com/indexContests) now and start picking up your VP!

MILESTONE SHARES CORRECTION
It has come to our attention that the number of Milestone Shares displayed at the Affiliate Center is incorrect for some affiliates. That is, Milestone Shares were designed to be based on your qualified rank at the end of the current month, not on previous month’s rank (which is what has been erroneously displayed).
We are now adjusting the programming so that the correct amount is displayed and all affiliates will receive the number of Milestone Shares applicable to their actual, qualified rank status. Thank you for your understanding.

10 REASONS WHY BEING TEAM LEADER ROCKS!
Success sure is sweet! Just ask anyone who’s ever built a successful business. In SFI, your potential for success really amps up once you reach the rank of Team Leader. Not only do you expand your access to several income streams, you achieve a MAJOR step toward building a long-term, successful business!
Of course, ALL Affiliates get access to SFI’s free training, marketing tools, compensation opportunities, and other goodies, but here are 10 MORE reasons why being an SFI Team Leader really rocks:
1. More Free TCredits every month!
Every Team Leader gets up to 24 FREE TripleClicks TCredits every month to use for member listings, to bid on Pricebenders Auctions, to participate in contests, play games, download songs from TripleClicks Music, and more.
2. More shares in the TC Executive Pool!
In addition to one TripleClicks Executive Pool share for every VP earned that every Affiliate gets each month, Team Leaders get matching VP shares for VP earned by all EA2s in their downline…up to 12 levels, including their CSAs! DTLs also get double matching VP on affiliates on their 12th level!
3. Even MORE TripleClicks Executive Pool shares!
As a Team Leader, for every 10 personal VP you earn, you get bonus shares in the TripleClicks Executive Pool. Advance up the ranks of Team Leader, get more Milestone Shares–up to 18 shares every month!
4. New, free Co-Sponsored Affiliates every month!
Team Leaders get up to 6 monthly share allotments of Second Home CSAs–CSAs who were previously assigned a Co-Sponsor but were forfeited due to the Co-Sponsor not maintaining required EA status.
5. Expanded leverage to transform your PSAs into Team Leaders!
The ability to reassign PSAs up to 12 generations to motivated, up-and-coming leaders in your downline can help you encourage, develop, and motivate your Team Leaders. And, remember: every time you develop a new committed TL, you’ve created another residual income stream that can keep bringing in money for you with minimum attention on your part!
6. Even MORE power to grow your SFI organization!
Team Leaders can also reassign their CSAs to their downline affiliates–up to 12 generations. This can be a powerful tool for providing incentives to your affiliates to upgrade and maintain EA and above every month!
7. Extra DD invites to help you expand your core group of select PSAs.
With up to 20 Designated Diamond Invitations, you can use this valuable resource to create a strong, core group of officially designated, select PSAs that you’ll work closely with to build a successful team. Find out more: https://www.sfimg.com/Support/Solution?id=215366
8. Exclusive TL support and resources!
We LOVE our leaders…that’s why we pride ourselves in giving our TLs the quick support response they need to keep their businesses strong. The SFI Forum also features a Team Leader category exclusively for TLs to brainstorm, ask questions, and get direct feedback from other SFI Leaders, as well as SFI President Gery Carson and others at SFI Corporate!
9. Creative freedom over new SFI ads and promotions!
STLs and above can let their creative juices flow by writing up their own ads and promotions to suit their local area demands, marketing focus, or special strategy. NOTE: All ads and promotions must first be submitted to SFI for fast approval (usually 1 to 2 business days).
10. Bragging rights and sense of accomplishment!
This might not seem all that significant at first, but never underestimate the far-reaching benefits of setting goals and reaching them! Your growing confidence and experience naturally shines through and positively affects your relationship with others in your downline. Happiness is contagious, and your team members will naturally want to emulate (i.e., duplicate) your efforts!
YOUR AFFILIATE WEEKLY TIP
Increase your CSA activity
Did you know that matching up co-sponsors and CSAs by country has been shown to increase activity in CSAs due to better communications and compatibility in regards to language, culture, etc.?
It’s true! And with the CSA Exchange, you can actively harness the power of this in your team by exchanging all your CSAs from other countries…for CSAs from your own country!
Using the CSA Exchange is simple. Here are the steps:
Step 1: Go to http://www.sfimg.com/MyAccount/CSAExchange
Step 2: Choose the ELIGIBLE CSAs view.
Step 3: Select all the CSAs you wish to exchange. You’ll, of course, want to keep your active CSAs. So only select the CSAs that you’re okay with exchanging for different CSAs.
Step 4: Save your selections by clicking the “Add selected CSAs to Exchange pool” button.
That’s it! Exchanges will begin automatically–usually within 24 hours, depending on what CSAs are available currently.
Special Note: As you acquire additional CSAs, be sure to visit the CSA Exchange every so often to add them to the CSAs you want to exchange.

TESTIMONIALS OF THE WEEK
Affiliates weigh in on the new Fast-Track Extensions program:
“Totally amazing!!! I am highly pumped over this. Another chance for my PSAs. I did not hesitate to get a Team Mail out on this. And even though it requires me to spend one TCredit each to do my part, I have absolutely no problem with that. I am all about giving people another chance. Gery, I am amazed at what you are doing for the affiliates on this site this year. You promised more this year, and you are delivering far more than I imagined. I am honored to be involved and to see what is being done!!! You are reaching past anything that has been done in the past, and I think it will only serve to bring SFI to greater heights!”
–Steve C., USA
“Wow! I read the e-mail, and I think it’s a very generous offer to the new affiliates. There are many advantages for becoming a Fast track member. I am sure many affiliates will make use of this wonderful opportunity.”
–Krishnamurthy T., INDIA
“Wow!! Thank you Gery. This new Fast Track Extensions program is another attractive way to boost more wonderful opportunities to our team. Many will feel excited, especially having the gold jet logo beside their names. Excited to build something great.”

“The Fast-Track offer you brought to the table is a great idea. I actually know someone in my team who had mentioned they regretted not taking advantaged of the Fast-Track offer when they first joined. Now they can, and I am happy for them. Great idea!”
–Norman M., CANADA
“Thanks so much Gery, and perfect timing in my case too. I have a few PSAs trying to work hard and I am trying my best to help them get Fast-Track…even offering a good reward. Now it gives me more time to explain the details to them. Greatly appreciated. You have come to my rescue yet again. I can breath a bit better now, haha.”
