Last day to get in on Opti-Build for July!

Tomorrow (July 1st),  Opti-Build will continue to assist thousands to “build optimally” for the month of July and automatically follow The Diamond PlanBut to participate in July, you need to be set up by the end of today (June 30th)!

Three things you need to know to participate:

  1. If you’ve qualified as a BTL this month (or expect to by the end of the day), be sure you’ve opted in to participate.  You can do that HERE.  Note that your sponsor does not need to be active or a Designated Diamond themselves for you to benefit from the Opti-Build program.
  2. If your sponsor has a lot of first-level Team Leaders, you’ll need to be one of his/her top five Team Leaders by the end of the day (by rank and/or total VersaPoints if a tiebreaker is needed) to be designated a Designated Diamond for July. We recommend that you contact your sponsor if you haven’t already to determine your status.
  3. If you’re a Team Leader, you may want to do some reassignments to maximize your results in July.  You must get this completed by the end of the day.  Get directions and info on the reassignment rules HERE.  Read all about how to do reassignments and benefits of reassigning affiliates HERE.

Localvantia excitement!

Localvantia is off to a GREAT start with hundreds of merchants already being pre-registered weekly in dozens of countries by SFI affiliates who see the huge opportunity in front of them!

The United States leads the way, with Canada, Australia, Italy, Serbia, South Africa, and Nigeria also having added numerous merchants so far.

The top merchant categories registered so far are restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, general retail stores, health & wellness, automotive, and beauty/hair salons.  In all, merchants in 30 different categories have been pre-registered so far!  And we’re just getting started!


What is Localvantia?

Imagine earning all your rank-qualifying VersaPoints each month by simply buying your groceries, fueling up your car, dining at your favorite restaurants!  Better yet, imagine earning earn all these VersaPoints with no additional expense whatsoever; you just buy what you already buy!

That’s exactly what our new program, “Localvantia,” aims to do!  But Localvantia isn’t just about grocery stores, gas stations, and places to eat.  On the contrary, Localvantia is designed to cover ALL merchants with products and services consumed locally.  Learn more HERE.


Boost your future SFI income now!

While the opportunity in a few months to be able to earn unlimited VersaPoints just by shopping at your favorite merchants is BIG, if you’re in SFI to earn big monthly commissions, the Localvantia pre-registration program is what you want to be focusing on!

And remember that this is a “first-mover advantage” opportunity.  That is,  the merchants in your area can only have one Referrer.  If you’re not pre-registering them, if you’re letting other affiliates in your area do it instead, you’re potentially forfeiting thousands of dollars in monthly residual income that could be YOURS.  Get your share!

LocalvantiaPR_Testimonial

Here’s how easy it is to pre-register merchants:

All SFI affiliates with the minimum rank of Executive Affiliate (EA) can pre-register local merchants. Here are the four simple steps:

  1. Visit your favorite merchant(s).
  2. Take a good picture of their storefront.  See examples HERE.
  3. Go to https://www.sfimg.com/MyAccount/lv_prereg and complete the pre-registration form for the merchant and upload the photo you took.
  4. Monitor your list of registered merchants and results at: https://www.sfimg.com/MyAccount/lv_mymerchants

Then, in October, when the Localvantia website/search engine goes live, the merchants will be contacted to confirm their registration and formally opt in to the program.  To clarify, you’re NOT contacting merchants now, you’re just pre-registering them in our database, in preparation for the formal launch in October.

Note: Do not pre-register any merchants you’re not willing to follow up on later.  What form will the follow-up take?  It could take many forms, depending on the merchant, including mailing literature, leaving a brochure for the owner, phone calls, or even meetings.

LocalvantiaPR_RewardFor your accounts (the merchants you pre-registered), your reward is the opportunity to earn unlimited Bonus VP (each worth one share of the TripleClicks Executive Pool)!  That is, for each VersaPoint dispensed by your merchants, you’ll earn one Bonus VP!

Imagine you’ve signed up a popular restaurant or grocery store that SFI affiliates shop at, who earn themselves 50,000 VP a month from their purchases there.  That’s 50,000 Bonus VP (shares of the TripleClicks Executive Pool) for you each month, essentially just for introducing the merchant to the Localvantia program.  And that’s just for ONE merchant; you could have dozens or even hundreds of merchants!

Read more about the new pre-registration program HERE.   And/or visit the Localvantia thread at the SFI Forum HERE to learn more.


Pricebenders Update

PricebendersLogoTo try to improve Pricebenders for everyone, over the coming weeks we’re going to be testing some new things.

Effective immediately, we will be testing limiting live auctions to a maximum of four at a time.  One big benefit of this is that it should drastically shorten auction times.  Most auctions should start and be finished in less than one hour total in fact!

But, wait, what if you’re not interested in any of the four items being auctions or are not presently qualified to participate?  To address this, we will be rolling out and testing a new upcoming schedule within the next few days.  In short, auctions will now start at specific scheduled times that you can plan around.  Hence, if what you’re interested in isn’t a live auction right now, you can determine exactly when it WILL be from the new schedule and you can even set a automatic reminder (you’ll receive an alert when the auction starts) if you wish.

Other modifications may also be tested.
