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.

HELP US MAKE UNSTOPPABLE EVEN BIGGER

We’d like to substantially increase the amount of cash and prizes we’re giving away each month!  Help us make this a reality by actively promoting the contest to your team.  The more participation, the bigger the prizes can go!  Thank you!

37,135 free VP awarded in latest Spin & Win

spin-and-win-2Did you miss out on the most recent Spin & Win contest, held between September 26, 2016 through September 28, 2016? Affiliates who spotted the Spin & Win notice–announced in the weekly SFI Affiliate newsletter, mailed out on September 26th–and who entered the free contest grabbed 37,135 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!
