New personalized JMT Banners!

If you love using your JMT (Join My Team) gateway, you’re going to love our new JMT banners that you can pair up with your gateway in your advertising and promotions.

Go HERE now to see all five new banners.

What’s special about these new banners is that they are personalized for you!  They automatically include both your name and your account photo!

Here’s a sample banner:


IMPORTANT TIP: If you’re planning to use the new JMT banner, it would be a great time to get the best photo of yourself uploaded as your SFI account photo.  An image focused on your friendly, smiling face will go a long ways towards attracting new prospects.  A dour, fuzzy, or otherwise non-professional image, conversely, may repel prospects!  Install your new photo HERE.

Learn more about the importance of a great account photo in this new, updated LaunchPad lesson.

Good luck with these new banners!

The new LaunchPad is here!!

screenshot_1680WHAT’S NEW

  • Simplified, streamlined, and with a fresh new and modern look.
  • Mobile-friendly.
  • All lessons have been updated plus lots of new content and topics previously not covered in LaunchPad have been added.
  • More personalized and more customization.
  • The LaunchPad Index now features 11 “core lessons” (chapters) by default.  All but two have “sub-lessons” which may be accessed by opening the “related lessons” panel beside the core lesson. As instructed, ideally, new affiliates should read all the core lessons first, then explore the related lessons.
  • There are currently 11 core lessons, and 50 sub-lessons.  Additional chapters and lessons will be added as needed going forward.
  • It’s no longer 30 lessons over 30 days any more.  Very few followed this guideline anyway, so we’re now recommending that new affiliates review 2-5 lessons a day, as many of the related lessons are brief (though just one a day is fine of course too). In short, everyone should read LaunchPad at a pace they are comfortable with–without rushing through this critical training of course.
  • Easily page back and forth through every chapter using the provided “Back” and “Next” buttons.
  • We are no longer sending an email every day about LaunchPad.  Instead, we will simply allow new affiliates to go at whatever pace they’re comfortable with. Note that all new affiliates are automatically funneled to LaunchPad upon registering and going through the New Affiliate Intro.  We also refer them to LaunchPad in our Welcome email (and so should you when greeting your new affiliates).
  • For simplification, we’ve eliminated the quizzes from LaunchPad.  To collect VP, you now simply need to click the “I’ve reviewed this lesson” button at the bottom of each lesson.
  • Every now lesson awards 5 VP, with 305 total VP available.  Note: Many of you have already collected 300 VP for completing LaunchPad earlier; you will be able to gain an additional 5 VP now by reviewing a lesson for the current 305 VP total.  And when we add new lessons, you’ll have the opportunity to gain 5 new VP each time. Special Note: If you’re an older affiliate who actually collected more than 305 VP prior to today for LaunchPad lessons, you will NOT earn extra VP until your LaunchPad VP total is greater than the current LaunchPad maximum total.
  • On the To Do List and VP Ledgers, we are no longer spelling out the titles of all the lessons (60+ lesson titles is just too much clutter).  Instead, a single line will appear that guides you on how many of the 61 lessons you’ve completed and how many total VP you’ve collected.  Note: At the LaunchPad Index, you can identify which lessons you’ve reviewed and which you have not yet by the green checkmark balls that will appear beside lesson titles.
  • The new LaunchPad is now THE place for getting educated on the basics of SFI and TripleClicks.  It’s for new affiliates and it’s for experienced affiliates for whenever they need a refresher on any key component of the SFI program.  Sponsors: Make sure you are referring your affiliates to LaunchPad.  It is now absolutely THE best place for getting up to speed on everything about SFI and TripleClicks (but without overwhelming details).
  • LaunchPad is now a fully dynamic and database-driven site, allowing for fast and easy lesson maintenance.  It also allows us to customize and personalize every lesson for maximum impact.
  • The new LaunchPad is a very big piece of work, a project that has taken MONTHS to complete…and it’s still a work in progress.  So bear with us as we continue with refinements, add more diagrams, etc.  Also, please be aware that we are looking at other ways to enhance LaunchPad, such as with videos, audio, etc. And we’re of course very interested in your feedback, so use the Suggestion Box at the Forum to let us know how you think we can make LaunchPad even better!

Spotlight on…BADGES!

SFI affiliates LOVE their badges…and we love coming up with new badges for our affiliates to add to their collections.  But now we’re going to take badges to a whole new level with an exclusive new SFI game–coming soon–with prizes, new competitions, prestigious new levels you can achieve, and more.


That’s all we can tell you right now, but we know you’re going to love it!

Important Note: We apologize for the inconvenience, but in order to write the programming for the new badge game, it was necessary for us to erase the hide-badge settings.  So, if there are any of your badges you don’t want to display on your Leadership Page, Affiliate Snapshot, or JMT Gateway, you’ll need to choose those again at:

We appreciate your understanding!  The new game should debut in September.

42,310 free VP awarded in latest Spin & Win

spin-and-win-2Did you miss out on the most recent Spin & Win contest, held between August 22, 2016 through August 24, 2016? Affiliates who spotted the Spin & Win notice–announced in the weekly SFI Affiliate newsletter, mailed out on August 22nd–and who entered the free contest grabbed 42,310 free VP!

Yet, that number is only a tiny fraction of the total amount of free VP we set aside for each Spin & Win contest! Don’t miss out on these easy VersaPoints and the earning benefits that come with them. Be on the lookout for Spin & Win alerts in our newsletters–and make sure everyone in your downline is looking for them as well. 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!

Achieving your August goals?

Dart & targetHow are you doing on your monthly SFI goals? Did you collect your 5 VP for setting your goals for the month (before the 10th), along with 1 VP each day you review your Goals Tab?

MORE importantly: will you reach some (or all) of the goals you’ve set for this month?

If you’ve answered no or are not sure, take a moment right now to review your progress:


Then, stop by the Ask SC archive at the Affiliate Center and search for “goals” to read top answers to questions about setting and reaching goals in SFI and helping your downline to do the same. You’ll also want to check out the SFI Forum for more ideas, tips, and advice on setting goals that will help you succeed in SFI. And don’t forget all the business-building training and support articles available for free to all affiliates at the SFI Affiliate Center!

And get ready for September!

On September 1st, it will be time to set new monthly goals. If you set goals for August, use what you learned to set realistic September goals. The most important thing is to have goals and always strive to achieve them. Various studies PROVE that those who write down their goals accomplish significantly more than those who do not…and we want all of our affiliates to experience bountiful success!
