Redeemed my 48 Rewardicals in Miscellaneous #Rewardical

18 hours ago

I am waiting to see how many RT (Rewardical-Tokens) we need to accumulate to Purchase the "Single TCredit" Package www.tripleclicks.com/detail.php?item=47534 It consists of 102-VP & 1-TCredit plus 5-MRP and costs only 150-MRP -or- ???-"Rewardicals".

I expect that we will be rewarded with a much better return-on-investment (ROI) of our patience/waiting-time.

What is the maximum number of days allowed on a vacation mode? in Team Building

23 hours ago

Turning Vacation Mode 'ON' does also TEMPORARILY suspend the "Active Sponsor" program up to 6-months:
news.sfimg.com/2017/04/06/new-45-day-roll-up-policy/

"Q: What if I was ill, away, or had some other situation that wouldn’t allow me to fulfill the requirements for awhile?
For such an instance, you may (pre-emptively) put your account on Vacation Mode and we won’t include the days you’re away in the 45 days. Note, however, that the limit on using Vacation Mode for this purpose is six months."

This raises the question: What happens when your VP Streak runs down to zero ?
Does Vacation Mode automatically reset to 'Off' ? -or- No, Do you run in to VP Streak debt?

Update SFI Splash Pages in Suggestion Box #Marketing

1 day ago

Totally agree with you Randy:

Absolute directions are usually much better than "relative" directions. Turning North may be a left-turn for you while it is a right-turn for someone else at the same intersection. It is similar when describing time 'milestones'/dates verses 'duration'.

Relative requires both 'parties' to have the same point-of-view; Absolute references do not.

Admittedly, Relative references eliminate the need to "do-the-math" by the recipient.

How to work it from least developed countries? in Getting Started #Compensation #PSA #Team Building

1 day ago

Welcome to SFI and your first Post and Thread in the Forum Bikram;

Generating Income and Profit (Income -minus- Expenses) through SFI and TripleClicks is very little different while "living in least developed countries".

What often is more difficult is accessing a good quality Internet Service and/or accessing a means of paying for expenses -- hopefully Purchases from TripleClicks. SFI will solve the "means of paying" problem for Active affiliates.

The major Streams of Income that are listed in the top section of the Benefits Chart www.sfimg.com/Reference/ComparisonChart
are all accessible anywhere the Internet is available.

Best Wishes,
Stephen

Opti-Build? in Team Building #PSA #Team Building

2 days ago

From what I understood about OB, it is like building your organization with SFI at the helm. It's an ultimate team effort actually from up down to you - from the leaders up the ladder of your organization to your ladder and down. SFI would basically flood your organization, once chosen as DD, of PSAs. This is a win-win situation for everyone involved. And you, being on top of this, would definitely be the end beneficiary of (shall we say, massive) shares from collective effort everyone put in the EP monthly.

To everyone's success,
Rolly



Sadly, Opti-Build (OB) is not a Team, nor is "SFI at the helm". Opti-Build is only 'artificial intelligence' and remember that 'If it is Artificial, it is not Intelligence'.

1.) OB does not take your POAs and assign them to your DDs -- if you are not a DD yourself.( OB completely ignores your explicate monthly Optin and Team Leader status -- if you are not one of your Sponsor`s top-5 Team Leaders.)

2.) OB does not check that your POA has a valid email address, before assigning them to one of your DDs.

3.) OB does not check the nationally nor language of either your POA or their recipient DD.

4.) OB does not check to see if the POA has earned any VP, before assigning them to your DD.

5.) OB does not let you adapt to changing circumstances during the month.

6.) OB does not understand people or changing circumstances.

Would you not do most, if not all of these actions, if you were at the helm?

PRMS in Ask Gery #Sales #Team Building #W3

3 days ago

Sorry Edson but;

SFI Marketing Group (SFI) does not provide any way for you to personally contact PRMs. PRMs are not part of any SFI Team so are not accessible via TeamMail. SFI does not share PRM email addresses so that you can not email your PRM either. SFI protects all its` TripleClicks Members including your PRM.

If you have 'captured' their email address outside of the Carson Services or SFI programs, make sure that Your 'Subscribers' know how to Stop Receiving your emails/ unsubscribe from your email list.

Stephen

Opti-Build? in Team Building #PSA #Team Building

Please read this official article, just recently released 11/13/2017:
www.sfimg.com/Support/Solution?id=230243&referrer=search

and note the 50-percent recommendation for Co-op participants.

I therefore highly recommend doing Manual PSA-Reassignments via the Reassignment Manager whenever possible;

Opti-Build? in Team Building #PSA #Team Building

3 days ago

Yes Jimmy, there are several difficulties with Opti-Build.

The major problem is that if you are not a Designated Diamond (one of your Sponsors five highest Rank Team Leaders), not only will you not receive any new Team Members from Opti-Build (OB), BUT OB will also not process (assign) any of your POAs (Personal Originated Affiliates)!

If you are fortunate enough to qualify for Designated Diamond (DD) status, you have NO Control over which POA is assigned to which of your Downline DD. You can not match-up POAs and PSAs or Downline based on their nationally, language, or culture.

OB locks you into passing along either 50% or 100% of your POAs for assignment, for a full month -- in advance.

OB instantly assigns your POAs, before you know anything about them such as "Will they ever log in to SFI?" or "Have they given a valid email address?"

Sorry if this seems totally negative, but...

I assert that you really must be too busy to do Manual "Reassignments" to Optin-to-Build your Downline.

Best Wishes,
Stephen

What is the best way to encourage your PRMs? in Marketing #Marketing #Sales #W3

3 days ago

You have already received excellent answers to your question, however:

Always remember that your PRMs are not SFI affiliates! They may however "Convert" or 'upgrade' to become your PSA.

You have very little ability to "encourage" PRM from within OUR (joint) Businesses.

Stephen

If they are Friends or subscribers to your external Blog or email Auto-Responder list you can continue to promote 'our' products and/or Programs to them PROVIDED you do not imply you are Carson Services, SFI, TripleClicks, Rewardical, or any of 'our' other businesses.

Confusion between likes a post in forum and Streams in Miscellaneous

4 days ago

My Unapproved posts listed at www.sfimg.com/forum/profile?tab=unapproved&sfiid=xxxxxxxx
where xxxxxxxx is my SFI ID number, contain the explanations: "(Thread was removed due to forum protocol violations, toxicity, or obsolescence)"

1. Access to Your Unapproved list is linked to/from your "Me" tab in the Forum.

2. Further research should determine whether your Content was largely Obsolete or a Violation of Forum Protocol. Great care in posting any Link/URL is required to not violate Protocol.

3. Any problems with Toxicity should be handled privately through Support Tickets.

The Forum needs to focus on high quality vs. quantity of advice. Quality is generally indicated by the authority of the provider. Their Authority is generally indicated by the Badges displayed on their Snapshot.

Excess duplication of content within the Forum merely increases Quantity and therefore floods the Forum and dilutes its` usefulness.

Please, read the Gery's post above.


Thank you Tanja K. for providing the screenshot of Gery`s Post.

Slightly Off-topic: A link to Gery`s original Post or the Thread would be very helpful for establishing its` context (date, replies,etc.).
(I do not know how to get a URL (link) for sharing individual Posts but have seen some shared)

It would also be helpful if you could highlight or copy/quote the key/problematic portion of the Post you are dealing with (Krishnendu M.).

With great Respect for a Great Forum Guru,
Stephen


Stephen,
Following the posts from Gery and Adam is my way for staying updated on all
news in SFI.
It's them making and explaining the rules, right?
So, their posts are a kind of " Bible" for me....when I am not sure of something, I go
back to them to clear my doubts.

When I see on some threads people posting opposite opinions, I like to post a
screenshot of a Gery's or Adam's post about that matter.

Because, if I say it in my words....it's only ME...if I post a screenshot of some of their
posts, it's like a verdict from the Supreme Court! LOL

I take screenshots of some important ones, like this one, or bookmark them.

You made me go through all my bookmarks, LOL...but, sorry, it seems I haven't
bookmarked this one, just made a screenshot.

Anyhow,
if you want to post the link to a specific post on the Forum...here it is

(Sadly, images are not quotable)

When you click on that time in the post (left corner) that's the link for that post...
.you just need to left click there and then copy the URL address from the index bar
and paste it here.

If you click on that More from Gery link ( on the right), you will get a page with
ALL Gery's post on that thread...very useful for some VERY long threads

Thank you Tanja;

Your Post contains very helpful information and should be noted by all Forum readers.

Best Wishes,
Stephen

Understanding The SFI Rank and Earning Potential in Miscellaneous #Getting Started #Marketing #Team Building

4 days ago

Please note that you must be at least an Executive Affiliate (EA) to profit from the Executive Pool (EP). You then receive a Number of Shares of the EP equal to the Number of Personal VersaPoints (VP) you accumulated for that Month. (Personal VP includes VP from Sales to your TripleClicks PRM, but excludes VP from Purchases by any SFI affiliate)

You also receive one-time Milestone Shares of the EP the first time you achieve a new Rank, such as the first time you become an EA or BTL, etc.

Once you become a Team Leader, such as BTL, you receive "Matching-VP" Shares for any EA (or higher Rank) in your Downline that month.

You also receive one-time recently-accumulated Milestone Shares of the EP the first time you achieve a new Rank, such as the first time you become a BTL, or higher.

I hope this highlights the impact of first-time Milestones and the importance of Monthly Requalification.

Best Wishes,
Stephen D

Will my Rewardical Member become a PRM? in Ask Gery #Rewardical #TripleClicks

5 days ago

Just to add a bit of clarification...

A referred Rewardical member is a PRM (personally referred member), but they may not know about TripleClicks right now. Since we will, in time, be promoting Pricebenders, Eager Zebra games, etc. at Rewardical...a Rewardical member may very become someone who learns about TripleClicks and ultimately comes to spend money at TripleClicks. If so, they would be a de facto TripleClicks member, you would earn direct commissions on their purchases, etc. the same as any TripleClicks member. But at this early, early part of the Rewardical story, we do not yet have a report just for referred Rewardical members available. You do, of course, receive an email notification, however, in the meantime.
Thanks for the clarification Mr Gery
As you said: A referred Rewardical member is a PRM (personally referred member),
And if a Rewardical member may become someone who learns about TripleClicks and ultimately comes to spend money at TripleClicks. If so, they would be a de facto TripleClicks member, we would earn direct commissions on their purchases, etc.
Then why don't you introduce TripleClicks products to him as you introduced games and not to wait for him to know about that by chance!


I expect that this idea is already on Gery`s To-Do list, after launching the Localvantia program/business.

I also expect Rewardical will eventually have more members than TripleClicks.

Respectfully,
Stephen
