Anyone still pay some of your bills by mail? in Team Building #Marketing #Team Building #TripleClicks

18 hours ago

Hello Tall Ship,

Better be careful in putting advertising in payment envelops that you return your bill in.

I was doing that and received a warning stating "You are spamming the employees of this company using our material, if you persist eagle action will be taken."

A few years ago I was doing it all the time, even picked up a PSA doing it but not now it isn't worth being drug to court over it.

Just passing on a warning.

What's Better Old or New in Team Building #Team Building

4 months ago

Hello Nijaz B.

The way I see it, those who are Gold and up team leaders, that have huge teams will make a lot of extra money -

But, those who are only Silver or Bronze and EA's will take a huge cut in commissions.

With the current size of my team right now the new program changes will cut my commissions by more than 75%!! That is going to hurt real big time.

The commissions earned by my CSA's will lower from 15% down to only 8% which is close to 50% drop.

The Gold, Platinum and Diamond's levels qualifying has dropped to make it easier for them. But for the Silver down levels the only change is going from 5 needed PSA's drops to three but all other qualifications remain the same.

The drop in commissions hurts in other ways such as: you still have to gain the needed VP to qualify for your rank (this remains the same as the old system) which means your SFI ranks are going to cost more because your ROI is much lower.

The only ones who will benefit from the new changes are (as always) the very top levels in SFI - Everyone else must now work more than twice as much to maintain the level we are on now.

New localvantia merchant in Morocco in Sales #Localvantia

5 months ago

Hello Elarbi E,

I am excited for you to get your Localvantia sign up - good work!

But I must state that advertising the name and advertising site is not allowed on the public forum of SF - It is breaking the rules - this forum would be nothing but advertising from the thousands and thousands of affiliates in SFI if it was allowed.

Why Mobile Marketing is Important? in Marketing #Marketing

Hello Temel P.

You could have easily added this to your first thread without creating another thread on exactly the same subject.
If you notice other people's post you will see how they add more information without the need to create
another thread that only take up more room on the computers slowing the overall system down.

versa point in Getting Started #E365 #VersaPoints

6 months ago

Hello Arman A,

What you need to do is to realize that the 1,500 VP that you need is the total for this month not the total from the date you joined SFI.

Each month we need to collect 1,500 VP to reach the EA level for that month.

The reason I am bringing this up is that your badge still shows an green affiliate and that means you have not yet collected 1,500 VP for this month of April

Forum post and Etiquette- What we have forgotten in Miscellaneous #Getting Started #Leadership

7 months ago

Hello Robert - (and all),

When I come to the forum and see the answers to posted questions, I do not see this horrid amount of crude and disrespectful answers as you are suggesting. Most of the replies are kind and very supportive to those asking the questions.

The problem comes in when someone sees your answer to the question and does not agree with it then the stuff hits the fan. I thought a forum was set up to share different opinions and solutions to the question being asked but many times you are slammed dunked for your "difference" in how you answered. This should not be - but it goes on all the time.

I have been personally told, on this public forum, by a Platinum team leader and also by a Gold team leader to "GET OUT OF SFI" simply because I did not agree with what they were telling a new person to do. I have also been told by the same levels of top affiliates that I, and others, will never be successful if we do not do things exactly the way they are doing it. This should not be going on, but it is, and it is allowed because these people are in the top ranks in SFI.

So the real problems is not about others jumping all over the new people - I just do not see this happening - the problem is more about those who think they are Gods gift to the forum and it is either do it my way or get out of the way!!

I try my best to answer questions in a helpful manner every time I respond to a thread - I have no intentions of ever putting someone down for their questions - nor do I try to put others down for the answers they are giving, I may state that I do not agree with them but it is not to "hurt" them or dishonor them - it's just I didn't agree with them and that stirs up the hornets nest almost every time even when there were no bad comments directed at them personally - they take it that way then jump all over you.

That is one of the main reasons that I have quit coming to the forum to help others - simply because if your answer is not what the higher levels in SFI likes they jump in and brow beat you publicly until your replies to others mean little or nothing.

Some day maybe this forum will be a place where everyone is able to share information that is different in opinion than someone else and still be accepted as someone who is trying to help others instead of being ran off by the hot shots.

Rewardical tab in ECA Program #ECA #Rewardical

8 months ago

Hello all,

This may be off a little bit but all the Rewardical stores (all of them so far) I have visited do not have any listing as to how my "tokens" you will receive for a purchase of any product.

If we are using these stores to promote "rewardical Tokens" what good is it to send people there when there is no indication of how many tokens they will receive for their money spent.

It is the same when we look for VP in the TripleClicks stores - the VP is listed and we "know" what we will receive with the purchase - but that is not so with a purchase from a rewardical ECA - we do not know how many tokens for any purchase made.

It all depends on you in Getting Started #Getting Started

8 months ago

Hello Milorad A,

You basically repeated your post again with only a few minor changes - you could have just added to the thread you had already written instead of starting another hard to read thread on the same subject.

Break up your thread so it is easier on the eyes to read - no spaces causes confusion in trying to stay on track with what you are saying.

Why every member has a chance to succeed here in Getting Started #Getting Started

Hello Milorad A,

A nice post - except for one thing - you need to put some empty spaces in between some paragraphs to make it easy to read.

My eyes are old and they hurt when I try to read something that never give your eyes a little rest - It will look so much better and be easier to read if you use spacing between your thoughts.

Paid advertising sites money goes into flames. in ECA Program #ECA #Marketing

8 months ago

Hello Clarence W.

The closure of the ECA may not be due to "FAILURE" - My ECA was not a "failure" - I had a three day delivery time, I refunded all shipping charges - I contacted the person making the purchase the day I processed their order and notified them of the day they should receive their products along with tracking (all on my own cost)

My store was closed along with the other 95% of the ECAs weather they were bad or not - just simply closed to fit in SFIs new system - so don't be telling others that the ECAs were "FAILURES" That is being disrespectful and judgemental.

They were closed simply to new policies and new programs and leave it at that please!

Just a Suggestion in Team Building #E365 #PSA #Team Building

8 months ago

Hello David A,

Just a day or so ago you asked the same exact question on this forum - you were given a lot of really good answers

Posting the same question again just a day or two later is against the rules of the forum and should not be done. This is wasting everyone's time because you are just going to get the same answers that you received on your other thread.
