TIP:  For ideas on getting your PSAs to EA2 status, see this training article.

By the way, just for entering, you’ll get our new UNSTOPPABLE “In it to win it!” badge for your SFI homepage.  Note: A minimum of one new EA2 must be generated within 15 days of entering to keep this badge.



TEAM BUILDING TIP

Hey, Team Leaders, here’s a great tip to help you grow your group and get your members more active.  Piggybacking!  That is, we strongly encourage you to run your own contest concurrently with our UNSTOPPABLE contest.

While we’re running OUR corporate contest, you can be running, at the same time, YOUR contest with your own prizes and recognition.  In doing so, you’ll help us get more people involved in our contest…and we’ll help you get more of your members active and in yours!  Meanwhile, everyone entering gets more opportunities to win prizes and recognition.  An awesome win/win/win for all!

We will post at the end of each month (after commissions are processed), a list of the top 100 finishers.  Hence, we recommend that you design your contest to award prizes/recognition for coming in first, second, third…and/or in the top ten, top 20, top 50, and/or top 100.

Special Note:  Depending on how it’s received, UNSTOPPABLE may become a regular, monthly contest.  If so, we’ll make it super easy for you to identify those in your downline who have entered each month, to work closely with them, send them group emails, etc.



HELP US GET UNSTOPPABLE OFF TO A BIG START!

We hope LOTS of you will get entered and get busy trying to win (or help your team members win) the $1200 in cash and Signing Bonuses in July.  If you show us you like contests like this, we’ll make UNSTOPPABLE not only a regular, monthly thing…but we’ll also make the cash prizes even bigger!  Indeed, we’d love to give away several thousand dollars in cash every month!  Who’s in?!
