Get PSAs/CSAs & PRMs Active & Enjoy D Power of Duplication in Team Building #Leadership #Localvantia #Team Building

20 hours ago

I think the Canadian Market may still suffer from the British mindset when it comes to anything like this. I know I have problems in the UK and yet I think SFI is the best thing since sliced bread was invented, so if I'm here, then so are others. I think the same probably goes for Canada - interested people definately live there, but finding them is the challenge.

Something I've absorbed from new sign ups! in Suggestion Box #Getting Started #PSA #Team Building

5 days ago

We'd love to do something like this actually. Our concern is this: We list stores that pay Rewardicals for visits. Those looking for freebies (and there are millions of such people) jump all over it, maybe promote it to like-minded folks, get it listed, etc. And the result is that the store has to pay a bunch of money for people who had no interest at all in what they were selling...just wanted those free tokens. And we just don't want to put our ECAs in such a spot where they can be exploited like this. If we could find a way to resolve this, we'd absolutely love to put this program in place.

P.S. SURVEYS is one of the ways we planned to attack this problem. i.e. We provide a way for ECAs to create detailed, custom surveys. Customer completes survey. Customer gets tokens.

Hi Gery, thanks for reply.

Perhaps looking at this from a different angle might help.

I fully take your points, but unlike all the other PTC's out there, we have an advantage. Only our RW ECA's could advertise and as Scott pointed out, they are probably advertising anyway so many will already know how bad this form of advertising can be.

Here is our advantage that may work. Make software such that you only get your 1 cent provided you keep page open on your computer and view page for 30 seconds, then clickers will not be able to do something else whilst waiting for counter.

As you have stated and I 100% agree with you Rewardicals will be a major player in SFI future and every site in our PTC offers the additional benefit that if you buy then you would not only get your click credit you will earn RW as well. Existing members who 'get it' would be all over this, as the idea of earning whilst transfer buying items from one of our own has got to be right up there in terms of wow!

Geo target clickers to advertisers that are either Local (Localvantia) or will ship to the clickers country and our PTC would be totally unique and would (could) address your concerns.

It's another of those, the only way we could find out for sure is to trial it. You could also do a bit of market research amongst SFI & RW ECA's to find out if they would be willing to risk $5 - $10 (any amount) to help fund the initial setup to see if it would work.

Personally I don't think surveys would work based on your concerns regarding those that many would complete them just for the money and wouldn't be very advantageous to the ECA's

From what I've read and from my own downlines, many people join SFI looking for a way they can do some activity on a regular basis and get paid to do it. The obvious one is paid to click. We now have 100's of independent stores offering Rewardicals. Would these stores pay for guaranteed visitors? I'm thinking maybe 2 cents per unique visitor. (250 visitors for $5.00) The individual who visits gets 1 cent, introducer gets 0.5 and SFI gets 0.5 cents to divide any which way they want.

This could be paid in cash to existing account.

Depending on numbers, this could solve some issues - our RW stores get exposure and possible sales, the clickers can earn cash and have an incentive to introduce others plus SFI - The Real Business - would get constant exposure amongst the PTC opportunity seekers (and there are millions of them) and some would undoubtably look at the bigger picture.

Just thoughts - don't get bent out of shape...

What do you Expect to Earn from SFI ? in Compensation #Getting Started #Team Building #VersaPoints

6 days ago

When asked this question I usually respond with something along the lines of - What do you want to earn? There is technically no limit to what you can earn with SFI, BUT it will depend on the time and effort you are prepared to devote to SFI as a business and that it is in no way a get rich quick opportunity.

Whats the best way to redeem Rewardicals? in Miscellaneous #Compensation #Rewardical #Sales

8 days ago

I like to add at least 20 VP's everyday to my VP total as it gives me another chance at winning a prize in the free Daily Grand Contest plus obviously increases my income, albeit by a very small amount.

Everyday I do my tabs and get 12VP, then I'll do anything else that will earn me VP that I can do - reviews, stream posts, mailer to earn a minimum of 8 VP. If I can't do anything that gives me these 8 VP I will exchange 24 Rewardicals for them.

I think we should let Smart Start play out before asking for improvements. Every improvement request is just an opinion, whereas an SFI opinion of what will happen is based on a lot more statistics than us mere mortals are privy to.

Create email lists in Marketing

24 days ago

To create an email list and market to it effectively you must have an autoresponder. These generally cost a monthly fee, however, if you have a wordpress blog, there is a wonderful free plugin you can use, especially whilst you are trying to build funds, not spend them.

Executive Pool & Matching VPs in VersaPoints #Compensation #Rewardical #VersaPoints

24 days ago

As far as I am aware, the amount that SFI charges any business for rewardicals is more than they are worth to us as members. Part of this difference is placed into EA Pool. I'm sure if this is not the case SFI Corporate will correct me.

So, IMHO, it is even more benefical to build a business to gain matching VP.

I am sure that its even worse than this. I think many join just for a chance to win $250, but when they find out they have to do something to even get a chance to win, they don't go any further. The sooner Class Cash is removed the better IMHO.

How to become ECA selling PSA packages?.. in ECA Program #ECA #PSA #TripleClicks

about 1 month ago

Because of the nature of online business there is never any guarantee as to the quality of signups regardless of the original source. This includes, but is not limited to Google Adwords. If, at some point you are excepted as a seller of PSA's as a Rewardicals ECA seller or a TripleClicks ECA you will find that it is impossible to guarantee quality, only signups in relation to what a buyer pays.
