New easy image uploads at the Forum

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words.  We agree!  And now at the SFI Forum you have a new tool to make adding images to your posts super quick and easy!

Here’s how it works:

In the standard post creation window (what you see when you click to create a new post), we’ve added a new “upload” tool.

Click the “upload” icon and you can upload any image you have on your computer…and drop that image into your post, wherever it needs to be.

We hope everyone will use this new tool to make the Forum an even greater resource for learning, brainstorming, and celebration of all things SFI!

TIP: Make your images even more helpful by marking them up (as shown in the above image), highlighting specific elements or sections, etc. before uploading.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  1. Uploading any known copyrighted image is strictly prohibited.
  2. Individual images are limited to 4 MB in size and must be at least 50×50 pixels dimensionally.

New at the Forum: Must-Reads

Every day, there are amazing posts at the Forum–posts that inspire, teach, and provide invaluable, business-boosting tips and insights.

But amongst hundreds of daily posts, how do you make sure you don’t miss these gems?  Effective immediately, we’ve just added a brand new tab that we’ve named MUST-READ.  That is, these are those posts, the GEMS…that you MUST read if you’re serious about success in SFI (personally chosen by SFI President Gery Carson and other staff members).

screenshot_1071

Don’t miss a single Must-Read post.  Be sure that you visit the Forum at least once a day and check the Must-Read tab for new posts (and get your team members in the habit, too). Rest assured, all future Diamond Team Leaders will be reviewing every Must-Read post!

Tip: You can help ensure that SFI staff doesn’t miss a qualified post by making sure to regularly use the “Like” button (the Thumbs-Up icon) on posts that you think contain valuable information.

One more important note…

Reading and liking posts is great.  But if you’re also able to contribute valuable information by posting, please POST!  Remember, 40% of all CV in commissions come from the TripleClicks Executive Pool–which EVERY affiliate contributes to. The stronger the Forum is, the higher your income can go. Yes, by sharing your insights and tips with the entire affiliate base, you can indirectly grow your own income!  What are you waiting for?!
