Rank promotion notice

screenshot_988To avoid any technical issues with rank promotions pertaining to the new January 1st Team Leader requirement–with the New Years holiday falling on Friday, and the weekend immediately following–no Team Leader rank promotions will be processed until Monday, January 4th.

In other words, if on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or early Monday, you meet the qualifications to advance from the rank of Affiliate to any of the Team Leader ranks, it will not be reflected on your account until approximately noon CT, Monday.  This will allow our IT staff to be available in case of any issues resulting from the new Team Leader requirement that goes into affect on January 1st.

We appreciate your understanding.


TripleClicks TCredits expiration notice

47534Since the introduction of TripleClicks several years ago, we’ve chosen not to enforce our TCredits 1-year expiration policy, allowing our awesome affiliates and customers to use their TCredits whenever they liked.

However, tax regulations compel us at this time to start the clock for enforcement of the 1-year TCredits expiration policy.

Effective immediately, ALL TCredits you currently have–no matter how long you’ve had them–will expire one year from today–Monday, December 28, 2015. Going forward, all new TCredits bought or awarded will expire one year from the date they’re issued.

You can view all your TCredit details from the TCredits Ledger at the TC Member Center. Just click the TCredit Expiration Ledger button to view your expiration dates.

Re-post: 4 great ways to use auction bidding to build your SFI business

How can you parlay the fun and excitement of Pricebenders auctions into a money-saving way to build your SFI business?

Easy!

1. Bid on money-saving auctions for PSAs, CSAs, TCredits subscriptions (eliminating the need for a monthly Standing Orders), custom prestige domains, and gift cards for marketing. You can also bid on silver and gold items to build an invaluable portfolio that can become more valuable every year.

But even if you don’t win a Pricebenders auction…you STILL win!

2. You get 5 Member Rewards Points (MRP) every time you place a bid–10 MRP per bid on DP (double MRP) auctions. Use these MRP to redeem for any product at TripleClicks!

3. You’ll also get 1 Action VP per bid–up to 600 AVP a month…a GREAT way to help Team Leaders and aspiring TLs maintain their rank of the accompanying benefits.

4. Build your downline with the free Pricebenders Bid & Build tool. You can win up to one brand new PSA for every 10 bids. PLUS: Each time you win a full PSA, you’ll also receive a FREE bonus entry in the Daily Grand, where you can win additional business-building prizes, including CSAs, TCredits, VersaPoints, and more! Find out more about Bid & Build HERE.

ALERT! TC Gift Certificate scam

SFI News Square IconSFI Corporate has identified a scam involving TC Gift Certificates that we want all SFI Affiliates to be aware of. We’ve discovered that scammers are creating multiple new SFI accounts under different sponsors and using different names and e-mail addresses…THEN soliciting their sponsors for gift certificates. These scammers are then using unscrupulous ECAs to turn the TC Gift Certificates into cash.

DO NOT BECOME A VICTIM of this exploitation! Although we are shutting down the ECAs involved as we discover them, we strongly recommend that you and your team members give gift certificates ONLY to those Affiliates who have been active in SFI for a while, have earned it with concrete accomplishments, and/or who you know well.

For more information about TC Gift Certificates, see your Gift Certificate Manager.

Redesigned front-end pages for new affiliates debut

New affiliates will now see these two new, completely redesigned pages upon joining SFI:

screenshot_946

The first page (shown on the left) is what new affiliates now see immediately upon submitting their affiliate registration.  The second page (shown on the right) is the next page they’ll see and incorporates the “getting started” video.

You can view both of the actual pages at:

These two new pages match the modern, new style we debuted with the new SFI gateway so that new affiliates experience a continuous “flow” of the same consistent look and feel as they begin their SFI journey.  The two new pages are also fully mobile-responsive and automatically adjust for any screen size!  We’ve also updated and enhanced the text to make getting started clearer and easier.

But we’re not stopping there!  SFI Basics and the whole LaunchPad series of lessons will also be getting a similar facelift very soon…with more pages to follow.  Indeed, we hope to have at least 90% of the entire Affiliate Center (and TripleClicks too) modernized and fully mobile-responsive by the end of 2016.

37,735 free VP awarded in latest Spin & Win

spin-and-win-2Did you miss out on the most recent Spin & Win contest, held between December 10th and December 12th?  Affiliates who spotted the Spin & Win notice–announced in the December 10th mailing of the Ask SC Awesome Answers newsletter–and who entered the free contest grabbed 37,735 free Action VP!  Readers are leaders!

Here’s how Spin & Win works:

At least once every month–and up to three times every month–we include a blurb in our newsletters announcing that a new Spin & Win contest is underway.  NOTE: There is no mention of Spin & Win in the subject line. You must read each newsletter you receive in its entirety to find the new Spin & Win contest blurb.  When you find it, get to the Web page URL referenced as soon as you can (the entry period will typically be 48 to 72 hours, but could be less).

When you arrive at the Spin & Win Web page, answer the simple questions there about SFI or TripleClicks.  Answer correctly and you will get one free spin of the VP wheel–with a chance to win up to 1,000 VersaPoints (everyone is guaranteed to win at least 5 VP per spin).  There is NO obligation and NO purchase is necessary.  Just enter the correct answers, spin the wheel, and you’ll be a instant winner…with up to 1,000 VersaPoints added immediately to your account–just for reading your SFI e-mails!
