Important Bid & Build Update

We’ve just concluded our second test and have just went live with test #3 with these new attributes:

To make the program more accessible to all–and more fun, too–Bid & Build (B&B) now works like this:  For every 10 bids you make at Pricebenders, you’ll earn a spin of the new B&B prize wheel.  Every spin is a guaranteed win of a full PSA or a partial PSA (minimum 10%).  All PSAs are brand new, freshly-generated sign-ups.

Your partial PSAs add up too, so even when a spin doesn’t win a full PSA, you’re contributing to the next PSA you’re earning!  For example, with three spins you could earn a 20% share, a 30% share and a 50% share. Those three shares equal one new PSA that’s automatically added to your downline (typically within 5 days)!  It’s that easy…and it’s a 100% free bonus!  The new PSA will then be added to your genealogy and you can begin working with them!

Special Bonus: Each time you win a full PSA, you’ll also receive a FREE bonus entry in the Daily Grand, where you can win additional valuable business-building prizes including CSAs, TCredits, VersaPoints, and more! Limit: 2 Daily Grand bonus entries per day.

Our newest version of B&B also has these benefits:

  • There’s no limit on how many spins and PSAs you can earn each day!
  • All bids carry over–both from auction to auction and day to day!
  • All spins carry over until you earn a full PSA!

So, effective immediately, every 10 bids at any Pricebenders auction now gets you the opportunity to earn a brand new PSA and a free bonus entry in the Daily Grand!  And EVERY spin is a guaranteed win of some kind!

You can begin earning B&B spins immediately, and all spins will be banked until you’re ready to use them–for when you’re feeling lucky!

To get started with our exclusive program that allows you to build your SFI business while simply bidding at Pricebenders, just choose an auction you’d like to win from the schedule HERE and start bidding.


FAQs

Q: If I’m earning B&B spins while bidding, will I still earn MRP and Action VersaPoints, too?
Yes!  Now, your bids can earn you MRP, VersaPoints AND free, brand new, income-boosting PSAs…while also having the opportunity to win the great product you’re bidding on of course, too!  Quadruple benefits!

Q: Do I have to pay anything extra to earn these B&B PSAs?
No, all you have to is bid. It’s a completely free bonus for you as an SFI affiliate.

Q: When will I receive the PSAs I earn?
B&B PSAs are an extension of our PSAs To Go program and, therefore, have the same delivery times of, typically, five days or less.

Q: How will I know when I’ve received my PSAs and they are in my Genealogy?
You will receive an email notification each time you earn a new PSA.

Q: What if I don’t reach 10 bids before an auction ends or I decide to quit bidding?
Whatever number of bids you’ve placed towards B&B is “banked.”  You can pick up right where you left off at any other auction, now or at another time.

Q: Can I bid on two or more auctions at the same time and earn B&B spins?
Yes.

Q: If I come up short of 10 bids today, can I pick up where I left off tomorrow or the next day?
So long as the B&B program is still available, yes, you can stop and start any time you want.  We’ll automatically keep track of where you are towards your next B&B spin for you.

Q: How long will this new version of the B&B program be available?
We will test at least 10 days.  However, if the program proves to be popular and helps drive additional activity at Pricebenders, we will look to make it available indefinitely. So it’s up to our affiliates!

Q: How are B&B PSAs generated?
B&B PSAs are an extension of our PSAs To Go program.  Hence, they are generated exactly the same way as PSAs To Go.  You can review those details HERE.

Q: What happens if an auction I’m bidding on is cancelled?
Though rare, auctions do get cancelled occasionally due to technical issues.  Should this occur on an auction where you have been bidding towards a B&B spin, your TCredits will be refunded and the amount of credit towards any B&B spins will be reversed.

Q: How are the PSAs assigned?
All B&B PSAs will be assigned on a simple first-come, first-served basis.  Hence, you may receive PSAs who reside in numerous countries around the world.

Q: If I receive a PSA with a bad email address, can I exchange it?
Bad email addresses are rare, but unless there are other, special circumstances, we cannot replace PSAs earned from the B&B program.

Q: Do bidders who are not SFI affiliates also see the B&B banner and earn spins?
No.

Q: I don’t want to build a downline, I just want to win Pricebenders auctions.  Can I opt out of the B&B program?
You can, effectively, by simply not using the spins you’ve earned.

New Forum Guru Program Debuts

logo-forum_lgThe new SFI Forum has been a tremendous success.  Participation is at an all-time high and its value as a resource for finding and sharing information has never been better.  We are so very pleased!

There is one main area, however, where the forum needs real improvement.  And that’s the Forum Guru program.  You see, The Forum Guru program is supposed to identify the best, most knowledgable members of the SFI Forum.  So when you see a post by a Forum Guru, you should be able to trust its content and have confidence that the information is accurate, correct, and actionable.  This is extremely important.  When your new affiliates visit the Forum looking for assistance and they get wrong answers, that’s not good for them, for you, or anyone else in SFI.  Our gurus need to be gurus!

But, to date, the Forum Guru program has only been partially successful because the system we have been using to determine Forum Gurus has been based exclusively on “likes” (people clicking on the “like”–thumbs-up–button).  We thought it would work, but too many were just not using it appropriately and we felt that this would not change.

So, effective today, a hand-picked group of voters will determine who our Forum Gurus are.  Our voters will consist ONLY of members of the forum that have proven themselves to be worthy of this very important role.

Here’s how voting will work:

Each time one of our voting panel members sees a high quality post, they’ll give it a vote.  Votes will be tabulated continually and those with the 200 most votes will sport the Forum Guru title and badge (old votes will drop off over time to allow the most active current members of the forum to achieve the rank of Forum Guru too).

For those who had held the Forum Guru title, and now it’s gone, don’t despair.  Just keep posting good, quality stuff, and the voters will notice and you’ll regain your Forum Guru title.

New longest VP streak badge

We are introducing a new badge today that recognizes your longest VP streak to date.

screenshot_67

For many of our affiliates who have had a long streak broken, you’ll now have a permanent badge to recognize that accomplishment!

The minimum streak for this new badge is 180 days.  So if you’ve ever had a streak of at least 180 days, your homepage, JMT gateway, etc. are now displaying this new badge.  If you haven’t yet reached 180 days, this new badge will arrive when you reach 180 days.

  • A streak of 365 days (1 year) adds the bronze trim.
  • A streak of 730 days (2 years) adds the silver trim.
  • A streak of 1095 days (3 years) adds the prestigious gold trim.

Gold Fast-Track Member status update

Advancing from Silver to Gold Fast-Track membership is as easy as meeting the basic FT qualifications and setting up a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order in your first 10 days with SFI. Beginning March 31, 2015, maintaining that qualifying Standing Order each month will also be a requirement for keeping your Gold FT membership and sporting the gold Fast-Track badge.

Gold Fast-Track members should take a moment now and ensure they will have a current Standing Order of 1,500 VP or more for March. Affiliates who do not have a qualifying Standing Order by the March 31st deadline will lose their Gold FT status and will revert to Silver FT status and badge until a qualifying Standing Order is back in place.
