Check out the homepage at www.TripleClicks.com
. We've just added a splashy new banner to greet visitors and tell them what TripleClicks is about.
Meanwhile, at the SFI Affiliate Center (www.sfimg.com), we've added a new banner (see below) that links to the recently-published "Essence of SFI" article
. Check the banner on any page at the Affiliate Center that has a sidebar. We've also added this banner to the sidebar of every LaunchPad lesson.
We've also upgraded the "Essence of SFI" article
with an audio track. That is, you can now click the audio icon in the top right corner and HEAR it straight from the article's author and SFI president, Gery Carson.

1000 Fans in less than a week! On January 11th we announced our official Fan Page for SFI affiliates at Facebook, and our goal of 1000 fans by the end of January.
Today, less than seven days later (and WAY before the end of the month), we've already surpassed our goal! W00t!
A BIG THANKS to everyone who went in and became fans of SFI and helped us make our goal! Now, in the spirit of "aiming high and dreaming big," we've set a new, bigger goal:
100,000 fans. Let's do it!!
We are currently experiencing some temporary server issues at the Affiliate Center (www.sfimg.com). We hope to have it resolved soon. Note that Gateways/signups are not affected. Nor is TripleClicks.com.
If you haven't looked at the TC Members Benefits page recently, there's a new addition now listed: Member WebsitesCheck it out HERE
Though we can't divulge a lot of details yet, this is going to be a very cool addition to TripleClicks with "much more than meets the eye" including several social networking elements that will connect TripleClicks members, ECAs, TuneFlow music artists, and more! Stay tuned for future developments.
New, easier "PSA Mailer" is here!
It's a fact; If you're not employing regular communication with your team, you're building your business with both hands tied behind your back. Referring TC members is great. Sponsoring SFI affiliates is great. But more than anything else you do, it is the act of driving duplication in your group that will create the exponential growth that can send your income skyrocketing. And one of the prime ways you drive duplication is through quality and regular communication with your team. Starting today, we've made this easier than ever.Introducing...PSA MAILER!
Just go to the new PSA Mailer webpage
, enter your message and hit submit. You're done!
You've just sent a message, automatically, to all of your PSAs (personally sponsored affiliates). And provided you haven't already earned it for the week, you've also just earned yourself 30 VersaPoints!
There's no need to go to the genealogy or select a segment of your group. And there's no need to worry about messages going to bad e-mail addresses or opted-out affiliates as these are automatically filtered out for you.
Messages are sent to both the PSA's registered e-mail address AND to the PSA's "Team Mail" inbox at the SFI Affiliate Center.
There's also no rank or points requirements to use the PSA Mailer.
Special Note: Weeks will be defined as running from Sunday to Saturday. You can use the PSA Mailer as many times as you like each week, but a maximum of 30 points can be earned each week.
P.S. Be watching for an exciting future addition to PSA Mailer that will allow you to read and borrow excerpts from some of the best messages being sent out each week by fellow SFI affiliates and Team Leaders.
Our hearts go out to all of our affiliates affected by the earthquake disaster in Haiti, and we will be waiving minimum activity requirements for all Haitian affiliates for at least the next three months.
We have also confirmed this morning that the CARE organization (care.org) is preparing aid for Haiti. As you know, we donate a portion of every sale at TripleClicks to CARE, so your purchases and sales will be providing humanitarian aid to the people of Haiti. Better yet, make a larger, direct donation to CARE or other similar organization aiding Haiti.
Let us all work together to help those in need.
Tell-A-Friend Keycode is 1300
We're excited to report that hundreds of new members are now joining TripleClicks daily thanks to the new Tell-A-Friend feature we added on January 6th (see announcement here
So that you may identify your members coming in through Tell-A-Friend, we've assigned them a special, universal keycode. Just look for keycode 1300 on your Customer Report. If the keycode says 1300, it means this member found TripleClicks thanks to someone "tell-a-friending" them.
By the way, so that Tell-A-Friend is more visible, we'll soon be adding a Tell-A-Friend tab to the main menu at TripleClicks and also a Tell-A-Friend banner to all product search results pages.

Minimum activity requirement now in place
As of January 2010, we are now requiring a minimum activity requirement to remain in SFI. Minimum activity will be defined as at least 500 VersaPoints accumulated by the end of each month.1/8/10 UPDATE: We have decided to extend the window to 60 days. This means that on the first of every month, provided you had at least 500 points during the previous 60 days, your affiliateship will not be cancelled.
These points can come from any combination of actions. See your SFI To-Do List on the homepage for a listing of all pointable actions available to you.
Any affiliate who fails to meet the 500 VP requirement will forfeit their SFI affiliateship, all SFI benefits and downline. However, their TripleClicks Membership will continue. That is, they will still be TC Members, but they will no longer be recognized as SFI Affiliates.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Q: Why do we need to purge inactive people?
A: There is substantial overhead in maintaining "dead wood." Pruning the dead wood will make the SFI Affiliate Center faster and much more efficient for those who ARE active. Your genealogy will display ONLY active people from now on. Moreover, SFI is a business, and business is about DOING and BUILDING. If an affiliate is doing nothing, it is pointless for them to be in the system as an affiliate.Q: I'm the sponsor of a number of inactive affiliates and I want to help as many as possible get qualified before they get removed. How will I know which ones are pending removal from the system?
A: The easiest way is to use your genealogy. Any affiliate who is facing cancellation at the end of the current month now appears with a red flag before their name. You can individually contact those flagged.Q: So any affiliate I've sponsored who is purged will still be a TripleClicks member?
A: Yes, instead of a PSA (personally sponsored affiliate), they will become one of your PRMs (personally referred TripleClicks member) and you will earn up to 72% CV Customer Commissions on all of their purchases at TripleClicks (plus the VersaPoints, too).Q: Will these new PRMs show up on my Customer Report?
A: Yes.Q: If someone is purged, can they rejoin SFI later?
A: Yes, you are welcome to have them sign up again at a special webpage we will be making available soon. They will retain the same ID number, you as their sponsor, etc. For this purpose, you MAY want to maintain a mailing list so you have their email addresses, etc. You can download this list, by the way, using the link found at the bottom of your genealogy.Q: Can someone who is purged sign up under a different sponsor?
A: Eventually, yes. They will have to sit out for a minimum of six months however.Q: Isn't 500 points a lot to require?
A: On the contrary. If you're serious about SFI, we feel it's a very nominal requirement. You can earn up to 124 of these points a month just by visiting the Affiliate Center every day and 120 more a month by staying in touch with your downline every week. With a minimum amount of additional sponsoring and referring, the rest of the points can readily be accumulated. And if that's not enough, there will soon be tens of thousands of products at TripleClicks--products you are ALREADY BUYING elsewhere. Simply transfer those purchases to TripleClicks and you can easily attain the points you need for the 500 minimum or, better yet, 1500 for EA (Executive Affiliate) status.Q: How will you be alerting affiliates who have less than 500 points during the past 60 days and are in jeopardy of losing their SFI affiliateship?
A: They will see a special alert about this now when they log in at the SFI Affiliate Center. Secondly, starting on the 15th of the month, they will receive a series of e-mail alerts until the end of the month.Q: What about EyeEarners? Will they also need to have a minimum 500 points?
A: EyeEarners are exempted from the minimum 500 point rule.

Tell-A-Friend feature added to TripleClicks
TripleClicks now includes a cool "viral marketing" function. It works like this: Anyone browsing the TC site can now submit the email addresses of friends and family members. Upon submission, we send out a special e-mail invitation to become a TripleClicks Member.
To check it out (and/or try it out), first log in at TripleClicks.com (using your SFI ID and password).
Then go to: https://www.tripleclicks.com/tell_a_friend.phpNote: As we begin rolling out our new modules and site redesign, there will be links to the Tell-A-Friend page in numerous locations. It will be readily available from everywhere on the site!
So how does Tell-A-Friend benefit you? Every TC Member who you've personally referred who uses the Tell-A-Friend function will be marketing for YOU! Any TC members generated from Tell-A-Friend are automatically entered into the system as referred by YOU and come with all the benefits of a personal referral (e.g. up to 72% CV Customer Commissions for life!).
Example: You personally referred Joe to TripleClicks, i.e. he's one of your PRMs (personally referred TripleClicks Members). Joe likes TripleClicks so he uses the Tell-A-Friend function to invite several friends and family members to become members, too. Five of them become members. You now have five more PRMs (thanks to Joe!). And there's no limit to how many new PRMs that Tell-A-Friend can generate for you!
Tell-A-Friend will REALLY become powerful later this year when the ECA (E-Commerce Associates) program is in full swing and our many new member benefits and modules are in place. Indeed, there will soon be SO many great reasons to become a TC member that we expect millions of signups from Tell-A-Friend over the coming years!

Many new affiliates who join SFI get overwhelmed. "Information overload" or sometimes just the perception that there is so much to read and learn "paralyzes" some affiliates and stops them in their tracks.
To help with this, SFI Founder Gery Carson has written a new article, "The Essence Of SFI," which boils SFI down to three basic actions.
Read it now at: https://www.sfimg.com/EssenceOfSFI.sfi
Or, for an audio version, in which you can hear Gery recite the article, just click the audio icon in the top right corner of the article.
Tip: If you're sponsoring affiliates, you're undoubtedly hearing from people saying they are confused, stuck, or don't know what do. When this happens, be sure to point them to The Essence Of SFI article.
