Introducing…Fast-Track 2.0!

h-fasttrack

Today we are truly excited to announce a brand new Fast-Track program…with great new benefits–including monthly bonus shares of the TripleClicks Executive Pool!

For complete details on the new qualifications and benefits, head over to our new Fast-Track central info page now at:

http://www.sfimg.com/FT

Fast-Track 2.0 is now live, and all newly-registered affiliates are being introduced to the new benefits and qualifications at this very moment.  Of course, we know that thousands of our existing affiliates would like to have the opportunity to go Fast-Track, too.  Hence, we’re offering the following two grandfather clauses:

If you joined SFI before today, and are NOT already a Fast-Track Member, you may attain basic Fast-Track Member status by simply meeting the basic Fast-Track qualifications no later than October 17th.  If you’d like to have GOLD Fast-Track Member status, you’ll need to also set up a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order by October 17th.  NOTE: if you already have a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order (and you’ve completed the five required Getting Started actions from your To-Do List), you’re all set; you’re already qualified as a gold Fast-Track Member (and you should see your new gold badge on your SFI homepage now).

If you joined SFI before today, and are already a Fast-Track Member, you’re all set for basic Fast-Track Member status; there’s nothing further you need to do.  If you’d like to have GOLD Fast-Track Member status, however, you’ll need to set up a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order by October 17th.  NOTE: if you already have a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order, you’re all set; you’re already qualified as a gold Fast-Track Member (and you should see your new gold badge on your SFI homepage now).

REMEMBER: This second chance to grab a Fast-Track badge and six other Fast-Track benefits is a 10-day window ONLY.  Don’t miss out!  After October 17th, it’s gone forever.


NEW FAST-TRACK BONUS SHARES

Money stashPreviously, qualifying as a Fast-Track Member brought some nice recognition, but being a Fast-Track Member can now also boost your INCOME!  With Fast-Track 2.0, we’re introducing a new element to the SFI compensation plan that we call Fast-Track Bonus Shares.

With this new feature, every month you can earn valuable bonus shares of the TripleClicks Executive Pool.  It works like this:  For every 10 VP you earn, you’ll earn one additional bonus share of the Executive Pool.

Example:  You earn 10,000 VP; you get paid an extra 1000 shares of the Executive Pool!  And this isn’t just once.  You can earn this special new bonus EVERY MONTH!  As you build your group, this bonus could be worth hundreds of dollars to you every year.

Please note that earning Fast-Track Bonus Shares requires that you are at least an EA (Executive Affiliate) and account for a minimum of $20 in sales and/or purchases.


WHY FAST-TRACK 2.0 IS BIG NEWS FOR SPONSORS

With seven great benefits (including the new income-boosting Bonus Shares), MANY new affiliates will be going Fast-Track.  And when they do so with a purchase, that means you’ll be earning Direct Commissions (45% of the CV of the item purchased)!

To help you stay on top of this new feature, and so that you may provide assistance wherever needed, we’ve added new Fast-Track icons to your Genealogy and also to your My Movers page.  A green jet indicates that the person is eligible for Fast-Track.  A red jet likewise indicates eligibility for Fast-Track–but that less than 72 hours remains of their 10-day window.

We’ve also added Fast-Track icons to let you know who has already qualified: A silver jet indicates basic Fast-Track qualification.  A gold jet indicates a gold Fast-Track Member.  Note:  If you’re seeing both a green or red jet AND a silver jet, that means the person has already met the qualification for basic Fast-Track Membership, but still has time to go gold by setting up a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order.

We’re also introducing a set of new badges to recognize sponsors who are helping their PSAs achieve Fast-Track Member status.

Earn this new badge with just five Fast-Track PSAs.

  • Sport a bronze jet with 10 Fast-Track PSAs
  • Sport a silver jet with 20 Fast-Track PSAs
  • Sport a gold jet with 40 Fast-Track PSAs

BTW, these new badges will be changing to being fully dynamic soon, so that whatever your number of Fast-Track PSAs is, that number will be displayed on your badge!


 MEET FAST-TRACK’S NEW BUDDY: THE NEW MEMBER PACK

NewMemberPack

The best way to guarantee lots of Fast-Track qualifiers is with a great $20 product that every SFI affiliate will want to get of course.

Meet the New Member Pack (NMP).  The NMP comes loaded with:

*With an EZ Express token, you can play any Eager Zebra game, even if you’ve reached your play or win limit for the day!

That’s a total value of $61.40; you save $41.20!

PLUS…

As a FREE BONUS, NMP also includes 30 FREE entries in the brand new TripleClicks Daily Crown Drawing.  That’s one free entry each day for the next 30 days to win a share of over $1,700 in daily prizes!

PLUS…as an SFI affiliate, there’s EVEN MORE.

As an SFI affiliate, when you purchase the NMP, you’ll also receive:

  • 3 New CSAs (Co-Sponsored Affiliates)
  • 500 VersaPoints

With all those mighty TCredits, Member Rewards Points, Eager Zebra Game tokens, and a plethora of valuable free bonuses, we think you’ll agree that NMP is a slam-dunk bargain.

BUT IT GETS EVEN BETTER…

The NMP includes $6.70 CV.

Plus, we’re allowing SF Affiliates and TC Members to buy up to five NMPs (limited to the first 10-days window).

And if you’re an SFI affiliate and you buy THREE NMPs, we’ll add yet another bonus:

20 more new CSAs (29 total)!

Or buy FIVE NMPs and we’ll add 50 new CSAs (65 total)!

IMPORTANT NOTE: The additional 20 or 50 bonus CSAs will not be added to your Genealogy until October 18th.

YOU MAY PURCHASE NEW MEMBER PACKS HERE.

ABOUT SELLING NMPs

Each sale of an NMP to a retail customer earns you 500 VersaPoints (i.e., earn 1500 VP EA status with just three sales a month to new PRMs).  Each sale of an NMP also generates $6.70 CV (Commission Volume). The Direct Commission for the seller is $3.02.  And can you handle one more bit of exciting news?  Shortly, every time you sign up a new PRM (personally referred TripleClicks Member), they’ll receive from us special promotions of the NMP on your behalf!  And why not?  The NMP is a great value for new members and is a great product to introduce them to all the awesomeness happening at TripleClicks every day.  And we’re sure you won’t mind earning all that new CV, right?  More on our promotions of NMPs to your PRMs soon.


 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Is SFI forcing affiliates to buy something?
Absolutely not.  First of all, Fast-Track Membership is 100% optional.  You can achieve the highest rank in SFI and become the highest earner in SFI without being a Fast-Track Member.  Furthermore, the $20 Fast-Track requirement can be met with SALES–as little as one sale to a single customer (the New Member Pack is a particularly great option–low price, big bargain, and immediate delivery with no shipping fees!).

Q: Will a combination of sales and purchases qualify?
Yes.  Any combination of sales and/or purchase totaling at least $20 meets the Fast-Track requirement.

Q: What if I can’t make the required $20 in sales and/or purchases within my 10-day window?
You will have the opportunity to apply for an extension (more time) if you are a facing a hardship such as limited payment options.  Watch for a separate announcement on this soon.

Q: If I set up (or already have) a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order, do I need to also account for separate $20 in sales or purchases?
No. Your minimum 1500 VP Standing Order, regardless of when it is processed this month, takes care of the $20 requirement.

Q: Are ALL the new Fast-Track benefits (such as the Bonus Shares) available to existing affiliates?
Absolutely, yes.  Just get qualified (if you’re not already) by October 17, 2014, per the Grandfather Clause (see paragraphs 5 and 6 at the top of the page).

Q: I have a Standing Order.  Why do I not have the Fast-Track badge yet?
Your badge won’t appear until your Standing Order has been processed.

Q: If sometime in the future I fail to generate the minimum $20 in sales and/or purchases in a month, do I lose my Fast-Track Member status and benefits.
No.  Once you’ve qualified, all benefits are yours for as long as you remain an SFI affiliate.  However, Fast-Track Bonus Shares will not be paid any month that you do not have a minimum of $20 in sales and/or purchases and are not at least an EA (Executive Affiliate).

Q: What are the five Getting Started actions from the To-Do List that are required for becoming a Fast-Track Member?

  • Valid, confirmed email address
  • Whitelisting of SFI to ensure email delivery
  • Completed Affiliate Profile
  • Account photo uploaded
  • “Ready to go” commitment to sponsor

Q: What is benefit of being a GOLD Fast-Track Member?
The benefit of going gold is that you set an example for every person you recruit for the rest of your career in SFI. You want your new affiliates going for gold (a 1500 VP Standing Order) and not “settling” for silver.  Remember, the more team members you have with a Standing Order, the more secure your income will become.  If you, their sponsor, is silver, you can’t expect them to want to do more than you.  LEADING BY EXAMPLE is CRITICAL in our business, and displaying a gold Fast-Track Fast-Track badge helps you set a clear and strong example.

Q: Do I need to let my new affiliates know about Fast-Track?
You can certainly mention it and offer to answer questions, etc.  But there’s no need to do much if anything beyond that (and it may be even counter-productive), because new affiliates will now see special Fast-Track alerts and banners at the Affiliate Center and LaunchPad.  They’ll also receive three brief email reminders during the 10-day window.  Tip: Whenever you need to explain what Fast-Track is to someone, just point them to our Fast-Track central info page at: http://www.sfimg.com/FT

Q: What about EXISTING affiliates?  Should I let them know about the new Fast-Track second chance opportunity?
For existing affiliates, yes.  Especially if you’re a Team Leader, it would behoove you to help make sure that affiliates in your group who might otherwise miss our corporate announcements know about this important and limited-time development.

Q: Can affiliates still earn 200 VP for accumulating 500 VP in their first 24 hours as was previously a feature of the Fast-Track program?
No, Fast-Track 2.0 replaced the old Fast-Track program.  There are new qualifications now, as listed here.

Q: On the Fast-Track PSA badges for sponsors, does it matter if the PSA is a gold Fast-Track Member?
No, for these badges, we’re simply looking at your PSAs who have qualified for Fast-Track, regardless of whether it’s the standard or gold membership.
