We’re extremely excited today to debut our awesome new SFI Forum! Here are a few reasons for our excitement:
1. Up until today–for 15+ years–the SFI Forum has operated on third-party software (and all the limits that come with using off-the-shelf software). No more! The new SFI Forum has now been completely built from scratch by US, designed exactly how we want it. This means we now can TIGHTLY integrate our forum with the entire SFI Affiliate Center and system in ways we could never do before. And while we’re launching with a somewhat bare-bones feature set today (so as not to delay the launch any longer), there’s now almost no limit to what we can do with the forum! Indeed, numerous powerful additional features will be added over the coming weeks.
2. The new forum adds a significant layer of new security to the Affiliate Center. With third-party software, there are just too many areas hiding deep in the code that can be (and have been) exploited by those with malicious intentions. Through our new design, we’ve made security a priority.
3. Though the value of a strong and well-run forum may not be immediately obvious, we believe it’s one of the most important resources we can offer our affiliates. Excellent COMMUNITY is absolutely critical to any successful organization, and with our new forum–and all the things we can now do with it–we believe we’ve just greatly enhanced the SFI system. We also believe that, with our new upgraded and more visible forum, we will gain much greater participation from affiliates across the board. And this is a truly great thing for every SFI affiliate’s business that can lead to more active teams and higher commission checks for all.
We hope that everyone will take a little time today to familiarize yourself with the new forum. IMPORTANT: Start by reviewing our new TIPS & RULES page here:
It’s vital that you understand the rules of the forum. Meanwhile, the TIPS will provide you with numerous helpful and time-saving ideas to make your time at the forum more enjoyable and the forum a more valuable resource for everyone.
After you’ve reviewed the TIPS & RULES, click on one of the other tabs and start reading, posting, and participating!
We truly hope you like the new forum and we look forward to working with the entire SFI community to make it one of our greatest resources over the coming months.
