Misconception of many affiliate about passive income in Team Building #Compensation #Team Building

18 days ago

SFI has created the opportunity for affiliates to grow a second income which is passive. However, I observed a serious misconception of many affiliates about passive income, resulting in failure of these affiliates, manifesting in the form of inactive PSAs. This is not particular with SFI alone but with many other related kind of businesses. Many people believe that passive income involves doing very little or nothing and getting money flow into your account while you sleep. But what they don’t realise is that you MUST be active with your business of growing a passive income in order to succeed in staying ahead of competition, maintaining customers’ loyalty, leading a great team and creating meaning, passion or purpose in life. However, many want to be passive with their business and they fail. We need to understand the following:
1. You Can't Stay Ahead of Competition Passively
2. You Can't Maintain Loyal Customers Passively
3. You Can't Lead Great Teams Passively
4. You Can't Create Meaning, Passion, or Purpose in Your Life Passively
Therefore, building something great like your SFI business that generates passive income does not mean being passive about the business but require lots of work. I believe that if Gery Carson were passive about his business, we will not be seeing the improvements in SFI on daily basis. At his level in business, I believe he has simply leveraged his time with his team in their quest to create more and more value. They have chosen to focus their efforts (not less than 12 hour daily) on scaling to provide value to larger and larger audiences. Gery Carson may have delegated, automated, streamlined, systematized, etc not with the intention of sitting on some beach somewhere for the rest of his life and watching the checks roll in, but with the intention of freeing up his time to create even more value, either by leading the business to the next level of greatness and service to greater audiences, or by starting a new business.
I wish to conclude with Warren Buffett Quotes: “If you don't find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.” This is usually interpreted as passive income but does not mean that the way to make money while you sleep does not involve work. It may or may not require greater work but it definitely involves working smart with unwavering focus and determination to succeed.
To succeed in SFI, you MUST be active in the business of growing your passive income. What’s your take?

How to sell TripleClicks Products?? in Marketing #Marketing #Sales #TripleClicks

18 days ago

Mick has complained of using free classified advertisement platform for promoting tripleclick products and did not succeed in gaining from it. I believe he wants to know what method(s) others are using that is working. I suggest we need to be including whether or not the method(s) we are using are working. I have tried using free classified advertisement platform for promoting my SFI business and I did not succeeded in gaining from it. I also set up a blog for promoting my SFI business and a tripleclick product with paid advertisement but only got a few PRMs that did not survive before I stopped it. The answer to his question will benefit not just him but every one of us that have not gained from advertisement whether free or paid.
Best Regards.

Inspired by Mr Gery Carson’s Success in Miscellaneous #Leadership #Team Building

25 days ago

I have learnt over the years that if you have an idea of what you want to do in your future, you must go at it with almost monastic obsession, being single-minded and letting nothing get in your way, not even losses or failure. Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears. Mr Gery Carson is a man of great determination which set him apart from his contemporaries. Even when life was urging him to quit, his passion held him on. He stayed focused, going after his dream and kept moving towards his goal. Today, he is a success model.
I have vowed that I will rather hustle 24/7 than slave 9 to 5. My progress in SFI may be a bit slow but quitting won’t speed it up. I am fully persuaded that my determination will take me to the top. For those feeling like quitting, I advise you think about why you started in the first place. For me, I may not be where I want to be but at least I am not where I used to be courtesy of SFI. Please keep moving towards your goal on daily basis using the diamond plan. I have also learnt that if you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working on it. Hustle is not just working on the things you like. It is doing the things you don’t enjoy now so you can enjoy the things you love later.
It is said that when you live for a strong purpose, then hard work is not an option. It is a necessity. Let us hear Mr Gery Carson’s brief testimony which I ran into and was inspired to share.

Cannot get EZ tab to turn Green! in Miscellaneous #Eager Zebra

29 days ago

We learn every day. I got the clue of what the issue could be from Kay B’s second comment. I bought 50 moves and kept buying until I had over 100 moves. As at the time of this complaint, I had 91 moves. To confirm what Kay B suggested could be the issue, I decided to buy additional 3 moves with 1 Tcredit which I used to Play another Grandmaster Poker game and the issue was resolved.
Now I know that accumulating moves which I cannot use within a day is not in my interest. Thanks to Nimo P for having a good understanding of what I complained about. Many thanks to Kay B for providing the solution to my issue and to every other person that provided suggestions.
Today I have learnt that when I buy more than one move or match, I get a discount on the price and get credit for using (spending) TCredit, no matter how many TCredits I actually use or spend. The other days that I use the remaining matches or moves DO NOT COUNT as spending TCredits. That is price I pay for the bonus of the discount for buying the moves. I even submitted a ticket to support and this information helped me to understand the reason why support was not seeing any issue with my complaint as there was no indication that I have used Tcredit for Grandmaster Poker. Knowledge is indeed power. What a wonderful SFI Forum we have. Once again, Thanks so much

Cannot get EZ tab to turn Green! in Miscellaneous #Eager Zebra

about 1 month ago

I have observed very few cases when even after concluding the Grandmaster Poker game and using up my Burns both free and paid as well as maintaining the current streak (turns red to green), the EZ tab does not turn green. In all these cases, the EZ tab turned green after concluding the second game. What could be the problem?

COLD WAR in Just For Fun

about 1 month ago

A woman and her 7 years old son were inside a taxi. It was raining and all the twilight girls (Prostitutes) were standing by the roadside.
The boy asked, “Mummy, what are all those women doing?”
His Mother replied, “They are waiting for their husbands to come back from work.”
The taxi driver turned around and said, “why don’t you tell him the truth? Little boy, they are prostitutes. They sleep with men for money, said the driver”.
The boy’s eyes got wide and asked, “Mummy, Is that true?”
His mother, glaring hard at the driver replied, “Yes!”
After a few minutes, the boy asked, “Mummy, what happens to the babies those women have?”
She replied, “Most of them become taxi drivers.
Up till now, combined force of armed men are still trying hard to see if they can separate the woman and the driver
See fight!
Have some fun!

Have you checked your scoreboard today? in Miscellaneous #Compensation #Leadership #Team Building

about 1 month ago

As an SFI Affiliate, have you checked your scoreboard today? May be you have or may be you have not. Do you know that many affiliates turn the scoreboard tab daily from red to green without really paying attention to it. The Scoreboard helps you to know how well you are doing both as an individual Affiliate and as a team. You need to know, in real-time, whether you are “winning” or “losing” so that you can adjust accordingly.
The SFI Scoreboard Helps the Affiliate:
• Create focus
• Sustain team member commitment
• Make “real-time” adjustments
• Conduct team discussions
• Collaborate on solving problems
• Celebrate team success
What's your take?

Linking Payoneer Master Card to PayPal in Miscellaneous #Compensation #Marketing #Sales

2 months ago

I think it depends on your location. If you are in USA, you can link your Payoneer master card with paypal. However, if you are in Nigeria, I don't think it will be accepted. This can be confirmed country by country if there is any one who has succeeded in doing so in any particular country.

Reward for first Class position? in Compensation #Compensation #Rewardical

3 months ago

I have contact support but I am getting a different impression of the reward for first position in the class. It appears as if what is rewarded is first position in VP in the month regardless of your position in terms of total VP. I have always maintained first position in E365 total Versa points in my class but second position in VP in month of April 2018 and therefore lost the reward. This was not how I understood it to be initially except if my understanding of the reward for first position in the class is wrong.

Reward for first Class position? in Compensation #Compensation #Rewardical

3 months ago

Thanks for all the comments. I have maintained first position in my class since I joined SFI. I have also been receiving the 1,000 rewardicals since the policy commenced few months ago but not for April 2018. I have also checked my rewardical ledger as advised and it is not there. I think it is a matter for support as some of you have advised. Thanks so much.

SFI the best networking business in Nigeria

Hi Chinwe, I agree with you that SFI is working but you need patience, focus and determination to succeed. SFI has so much information to make one succeed but these information can also scare lots of newbies who do not want to learn so they earn.

Delivery system of TripleClicks to Nigerians in Nigeria #TripleClicks

4 months ago

Hi, Okputu has answered you correctly. However, some post offices close to your vicinity still have house delivery bike riders who deliver items to your door step. In the area where I live, these bike riders tend to charge additional fees for delivering items to the house but the office learnt of this and stopped them. The problem is that the bike riders are using that service to their advantage but to the detriment of the owner of the item to be delivered.

Am new on SFI but it has been amazing since joining and I truly want a mentor. in Nigeria #PSA #Team Building #TripleClicks

4 months ago

Hi Andrew, It is nice having you as a member of the SFI team. Every Affiliate has a Sponsor who should play the role of mentoring you. You also have a Co-Sponsor who will also assist you in this business. You have also the Forum where you can bring any issue that is of concern to you and it will be thrashed. Please note that your first point of call on any issue is your Sponsor. Pay attention to him or her and allow the person to mentor you. True humility is staying teachable, regardless of how much you already know.

You earn by building your business first as there cannot be earning without a business. How do you build your business? Learn the SFI business and apply what you have learnt; Engage in your daily routine of turning all tabs green as well as every aspect of the SFI platform; expand your team by recruiting more PSAs, CSAs and PRMs and teaching them to duplicate what you are doing i.e engaging in games; participating in localvantia and rewardicals, etc. You can also participate in Opti Build to tap from the benefit of team work. Always remember to keep in touch with your sponsor.

Condolences to all who forgot the change to DST in Miscellaneous #Eager Zebra

5 months ago

I personally do not like doing things the last minute because any thing can happen which will hinder you from completing the task. Such limitations could range from forgetting, over sleeping, network issues or even DST as you mentioned. I always try to complete my daily task well ahead of time because this business is highly placed in my priority list. The condolence message is to those who wait for the last minute to complete their daily tasks.

Products in Sales #Localvantia #Marketing #Sales

5 months ago

Just like Gery said, your RW tab on your SFI homepage is supposed to list participating merchants in your area where you or any affiliate have registered a merchant in the area. However, where nobody has registered any merchant in the area, the space will definitely not be left empty but other merchants will be used to occupy the space pending when any affiliate registers a merchant.
Simply go physically to the merchant in your area to buy things and simply upload your receipt. For online store, you can simply click on the required store to do your transaction.

Where are VP redeemed with Rewardicals shown in the VP Ledger in VersaPoints #Leadership #Rewardical #VersaPoints

6 months ago

Hi Gilbert, You Versa Points cannot be shown in your VP ledger because Versa Points is only one of the items you can exchange rewardicals for. You could also have rewardicals exchanged for T Credits or even gift cards. Recently, rewardicals can be exchanged with PSAs and PRMs. Therefore, you can only find all the items you can exchange rewardicals for in the rewardical site at www.rewardical.com.

How would you talk locally about Rewardicals? in Marketing #Marketing #Rewardical #Sales

6 months ago

You talk to localvantia merchants with good knowledge of the Program. You could say " there is this program that is operated internationally and used to promote customer loyalty which they use to expend their customer base. You need to come from the angle of their benefit. They are your customers and so there is no need to be very formal. Both SFI and the Affiliates have their roles to play in establishing a localvantia merchant. The SFI will contact the merchant directly to confirm their registration and also produce appropriate materials for the marketing of the program. SFI does not know the merchants in your area and therefore, their greatest role is to facilitate the Affiliates' marketing of the Program by presenting a big picture of the program, releasing information on the Program for Affiliates to use, assigning appropriate rewards for affiliates who work hard on the Program. Whereas, it is the responsibility of the Affiliate to Pre-register a merchant, present relevant letters to the merchant, follow up on the merchant, use the appropriate material for marketing.
