Comp plan review and adjustments

After a thorough 6-month review of the changes to the SFI compensation plan enacted on June 1, 2018, we have determined that some minor adjustments are necessary.

The payout of three generations of 4% Team Overrides for Executive Affiliates was designed to incentivize more affiliates to become Executive Affiliates.  The actual result has been counterproductive.  That is, we’ve seen a substantial number of Team Leaders drop to the rank of Executive Affiliate because there was no longer a significant financial benefit to being a Team Leader for them (i.e. all Team Overrides could be secured by only being an Executive Affiliate).  This has negatively affected overall revenues and created a decrease in commissions for many.  Therefore, retroactive to November 1st, we are no longer paying Team Overrides to Executive Affiliates.

But here’s what we’re doing in return:

  1. We are kicking off today a special new promotion for sponsors (regardless of your rank) which will allow you to earn 100% CV Direct Commissions and hundreds of additional business-boosting CSAs.  We call it the Special Compensation Package (SCP).  Full details below.
  2. Effective December 1st, we’ll be testing a new “speed bonus.”  Full details below.
  3. We’re introducing two new badges for the SFI Badge Quest contest.  Full details below.
  4. We now have an extra 12% of CV to pay out.  Who’s it going to?  Our Team Leaders of course!  In short, 12% of the CV that WAS going to Executive Affiliates…is now going to our Team Leaders as part of Team Overrides.  So, there’s now another big, juicy reason to “go TL!”  Note that with backdating, you still have nearly 3 weeks to step up to the rank of Team Leader.

Special Compensation Package with 100% CV Direct Commissions and more!

Here are the details for the Special Compensation Package (SCP):

  • For any new PSA, you’re going to earn 100% of the CV for that new PSA’s first 30 days in SFI!  That’s 5x the normal 20% Direct Commission and will allow you to get into profit faster than ever!  Note: This is retroactive to November 1st, so you may have already earned some of these biggest-ever commissions!
  • If your new PSA sets up a minimum-1200 VP Auto-Delivery order within their first 30 days, we’ll also award you 100 new CSAs.  This 100 CSAs bonus is also retroactive to November 1st!
  • At this time, SCP is a limited time special deal, available only on PSAs registered between November 1st, 2018 and January 31st, 2019.  However, if it is well received, we may extend the program and, potentially, make it a permanent feature of our compensation plan.  We hope you’ll show us you love it!

Executive Speed Bonus

Here are the details for the Executive Speed Bonus (ESB):

In December, requalify as an EA (minimum EA) no later than December 10th, and you’ll automatically receive 10 additional new CSAs (to go with the standard 10 Bonus CSAs you receive as an EA perk for a total of 20 CSAs).

Note: ESB is planned to be offered for December 2018 ONLY.  However, if we see a significant number of affiliates requalify as EAs early in December, we will extend the program and, potentially, make it a permanent monthly feature.


New SFI Badges

**Allow up to 5 business days for new badges to begin appearing**

CATALYST CLUB BADGE

The SCP (Special Compensation Package) also comes with a great new “CATALYST CLUB” badge.  Earn the basic badge and 250 Badge Quest points when you secure your first 100% CV Direct Commission.

  • Add bronze trim and a total of 500 Badge Quest points upon achieving 10 marks*
  • Add silver trim and a total of 750 Badge Quest points upon achieving 25 marks*
  • Add gold trim and a total of 1000 Badge Quest points upon achieving 50 marks*
  • Upon achieving 100 marks*, you’ll receive the very special “CATALYST CLUB Elite Member” badge and a grand total of 2000 Badge Quest points!

Special Bonus: Who will be the first affiliate to earn the “CATALYST CLUB Elite Member” badge?  The race is on!  And just to add a little extra energy to that race, we’re going to award 50,000 Rewardicals to the winner.

*How marks are scored for the “CATALYST CLUB” badge:  Each 100% CV Direct Commission you earn (maximum one per PSA) scores you one mark.  Score two more marks (three total marks) if a minimum 1200 VP Auto-Delivery is included.

EXECUTIVE SPEEDSTER BADGE

Qualify for the ESB (Executive Speed Bonus) in December and you’ll receive the new “EXECUTIVE SPEEDSTER” badge. Earn the basic badge and 100 Badge Quest points by requalifying as an EA by December 10th.

  • Add bronze trim and a total of 200 Badge Quest points by requalifying by December 7th
  • Add silver trim and a total of 300 Badge Quest points by requalifying by December 5th
  • Add gold trim and a total of 400 Badge Quest points by requalifying on December 1st

Special Notes:

  1. Should the ESB program be extended, the badges and points will be required to be requalified for monthly.
  2. If you apply your commissions for your monthly re-qualification, you will receive the basic ESB badge.

Check out the new, updated NGRQ Gateway!

Earlier this year, we introduced our “NGRQ” (No Get Rich Quick) Gateway, a Gateway specifically designed to filter out, up front, “tire-kickers” and other non-serious persons. Read all about it and why it might be the right SFI Gateway for you HERE.

It’s been a popular Gateway, but some have asked that we update it with a better image. We’ve now done that!  Here’s the new look:

New bigger, better Badge Quest!

We are excited today to announce an expansion of our popular Badge Quest contest.  Effective immediately, we’ve now separated Badge Quest into two separate contests:

1. SFI Badge Quest

SFI Badge Quest will exist and operate from the SFI Affiliate Center (from the BADGES tab) and is exclusively for SFI affiliates.  All badges associated with SFI Badge Quest will be about activities related to building your SFI business.

2. TC Badge Quest

TC Badge Quest will exist and operate from TripleClicks.com at TripleClicks.com/BadgeQuest and is open to all (both SFI affiliates and non-affiliates).  All badges associated with TC Badge Quest will be related to games, auctions, and other non-SFI business activities.

Double the fun…and double the prizes, too!

You know those great prizes you’ve loved for the original Badge Quest?  Well, we’ve DOUBLED them!  That is, the same set of prizes, including the giant jackpot of 100,000 Rewardicals each month, is now available for you to win in BOTH contests!

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  1. TC Badge Quest at TripleClicks is not yet 100% installed.  Leaderboards, rank badges, etc. will be completed and posted in the following days.
  2. The SFI Badge Quest leaderboard rank will be partially dependent on the VersaPoints you earn for the month. This is necessary to break up what would otherwise be thousands of ties. Here’s how it will work: For every 10 VersaPoints you earn during the month, you’ll have 1 point added to your Badge Quest points total. So…be sure to maximize your VersaPoints every month from now on!

Q: Can I compete in both versions of the contest?
Yes.

Q: Do I need to compete in both versions of the contest?
No, only if you want to.  The TC Badge Quest is, first and foremost, for non-SFI affiliates.

Q: Will TripleClicks badges be displayed on the Badges tab at the SFI Affiliate Center?
No, not anymore.  Instead, they will only be displayed on the new Badge Quest page at TripleClicks.

Q: Where do I go to see my TC badges, points, etc.?
https://www.tripleclicks.com/BadgeQuest

Q: Does the SFI contest use Badge Quest points from TripleClicks badges?
No.  SFI Badge Quest will only count points for SFI badges.  Similarly, the TC version of Badge Quest will only count points for TripleClicks badges.

Q: My Badge Quest points have dropped dramatically at the SFI Affiliate Center Badges tab.  What happened?
Points for NON-SFI activities (e.g. games and auctions) no longer are included in your points total for SFI Badge Quest.  Instead, those points have been moved over to TC Badge Quest.  So you’ll have one set of points for business stuff for SFI Badge Quest…and another, separate set of points for TC Badge Quest.

Q: Why have separate contests?
First, we believe it’s better if SFI affiliates can focus more on business-building activities.  Secondly, by offering the TripleClicks-exclusive version of Badge Quest at TripleClicks, we’ve opened up a cool, new venue to attract more gamers, etc.  And by excluding points from SFI badges, they can compete on equal footing with all TC Badge Quest players.

Q: So, from now on, my new affiliates will only be exposed to the SFI version of Badge Quest?
Essentially, yes.  The new, updated Badges tab will only display SFI badges (badges awarded for business-building activities).  However, there will be a small link at the bottom of the tab to let them know about the TC version of the contest.  You can also of course directly promote TC Badge Quest to your PSAs if you wish to, but that’s up to you.

Q: Will NON-affiliates over at TripleClicks be informed of the SFI version of the contest?
Yes.  Hence, some of your PRMs may choose to become affiliates so they can participate in both contests.

Q: So now I have to compete with all non-affiliates in the TC Badge Quest?
You were competing with them before, but now it’s a level playing field because only points from TripleClicks badges will be included in that version of the contest.

Q: What about Badge Quest rank badges (e.g. Badge Quest Grandmaster)?
You now have the opportunity to earn rank badges for both contests.  Note that your rank may differ from one to the other, however.  That is, you might be a Badge Quest Pro in one, and a Grandmaster Elite in the other.  It all depends on your Badge Quest points.

Q: So if this “resetting” of points causes my Badge Quest rank to drop, will I be able to earn the prizes for that rank a second time when I regain the rank I lost?
No.

Q: Can I win prizes and shares of the jackpot in BOTH contests?
Yes!

Q: Will there be more badges coming?
Yes, we’re working on lots of new badges for both SFI and TripleClicks.  Stay tuned!

Q: Will having a TripleClicks Badge Quest contest engage more of my PRMs?
It certainly could, and that’s one of the big reasons why we’ve created a TripleClicks version.  Badge Quest is hugely popular with SFI affiliates; it’s logical that non-affiliates will love it too.  And so that it can’t be missed, TC Badge Quest will be featured on the TripleClicks.com homepage.  We’ll also be incorporating more badge elements in our game interfaces, communications, etc. with your PRMs.

Q: Will there be a way to directly promote the new TC Badge Quest to PRMs and prospective PRMs (such as a Gateway)?
We need to get it fully up and running first, but we almost certainly will make available marketing aids, yes.

Team Leader rank qualifications simplified


We’ve now made it easier and less complicated to become and maintain Team Leader status in SFI.  The new qualifications (monthly) are simply:

Bronze Team Leader (BTL)

  • Minimum 3000 VersaPoints (VP) (1,500 min from sales/purchases)
  • Minimum (3) PSAs

Silver Team Leader (STL)

  • Minimum 4000 VersaPoints (VP) (1,500 min from sales/purchases)
  • Minimum (3) PSAs, one with the minimum rank of BTL

Gold Team Leader (GTL)

  • Minimum 5000 VersaPoints (VP) (1,500 min from sales/purchases)
  • Minimum (3) PSAs, two with the minimum rank of STL

Platinum Team Leader (PTL)

  • Minimum 6,000 VersaPoints (VP) (1,500 min from sales/purchases)
  • Minimum (3) PSAs with the minimum rank of GTL

Diamond Team Leader (DTL)

  • Minimum 1,500 sales VersaPoints
  • Minimum (3) PSAs with the minimum rank of PTL

Note that you can of course, as always, have as many PSAs as you want, but we recommend focusing on three PSAs as the best way to grow and advance your rank.  Once you’ve established three strong teams (with a strong Team Leader PSA at the top), add a fourth, then a fifth, and so on.  But the key, to maximize your growth, is to establish no more than three strong teams before adding more teams.  Learn more HERE.

WHAT CHANGED & WHY

What we changed was the elimination of previous requirement for a minimum 3-star Sponsor Rating from PSAs.  Why did we eliminate this?  Primarily, because it was a constant source of confusion.  Almost everyone struggled with understanding it or explaining it to team members.  Yes, the requirement was designed to help assure that sponsors were responsive/supportive to their PSAs.  But the reality is that…

1) It probably was only fractionally helpful (most people don’t need to be “coerced” to support their team members.  Indeed, being unresponsive is the best way to fail as a Team Leader in SFI!).

2) No one builds a great business in SFI without MUCH self-reliance and self-determination.  That is, IITBIUTM.

Bottom line: We’ve concluded that the PSA ratings requirement created more harm than good, so it’s now officially removed.

P.S. You’ll still be able to rate your sponsor and earn VersaPoints each month from it.  It just won’t factor in to your sponsor’s Team Leader qualifications.

Have you set November goals?

Have you set your monthly SFI goals? Be sure you collect your 5 VP for setting your goals for the month–on or before this Saturday, the 10th–along with 1 VP each day you review your Goals Tab!

REMEMBER: People who set and print out their goals are, on average, more successful than those who don’t. Learn more about setting and PUBLISHING your goals in this Rules Of Success lesson.

And make sure you’re checking out the SFI Forum every day for ideas, tips, and advice on setting and achieving your goals in SFI. Also don’t forget all the business-building training and support articles available for free to all affiliates at the SFI Affiliate Center!

Then, before you know it, it will be time to start thinking about December!

On December 1st, it will be time to set new monthly goals! Use what you learned with this month’s goals to set realistic December goals. The most important thing is to have goals and always strive to achieve them. Again, 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!
