WOW! Over 2 million Rewardicals awarded last month!

WOW! We’ve only just begun on our Localvantia and Rewardicals journey…and already, SFI Affiliates and TripleClicks Members received 2,819,433 Rewardicals last month from our Biz Quiz, Daily Grand, Daily Crown, and Badge Quest contests–more than DOUBLE our total from last month!! Congrats to all our contest winners and good luck to all our December contest participants!

Remember: In addition to winning Rewardical Tokens (RTs) in SFI and TC drawings and contests, you can earn RTs when shopping at local and online stores via the Rewardical loyalty program. You can then exchange Rewardical tokens HERE for a variety of great goodies including at free gift cards, Bitcoin, silver bullion, and more.


Boost your business! A great way to attract new Rewardical members is to pass out Rewardical X-Cards, designed to promote Rewardical and digital Rewardical Reward Tokens, to anyone and everyone you like. As their referrer, you’ll now be set to earn unlimited 10-1 Rewardicals on every Rewardical they earn…for life!


Localvantia Invitation Letter now available in three more languages

In addition to the multiple languages already available for printing, the Localvantia Merchant Invitation Letter* is now available in Arabic, Macedonian, and Swedish.

Here’s how to choose and print your invitation letter:

1. From the My Merchants report (the list of all your pre-registered merchants) at the Affiliate Center, click the CONTACT link beside each merchant’s name, located on the right side of the screen.

2. In the open modal, select your chosen language from the dropdown menu.  These include:

  • English
  • Spanish (Spain)
  • Spanish (Latin American)
  • French (France)
  • French (Canadian)
  • Hindi
  • Italian
  • Bosnian
  • Serbian (Cyrillic)
  • Croation
  • Nepali
  • Bengali
  • Arabic
  • Macedonian
  • Swedish

The languages listed above reflect a majority of languages spoken by SFI Affiliates; however, we may add more languages in the future. Note that each letter has been professionally translated and reflects business-related conversation norms for that language.

3. Click the PRINT INVITATION LETTER link to print out this letter (preferably using a color printer and on a nice grade of paper). Then sign it above where your name appears.

4. Next, put it in an envelope and mail it.  Or, you can personally deliver it (walk into the merchant’s store and hand them the letter). TIP: for details on how best to use the Invitation Letter with your pre-registered Localvantia Merchants, see this article

By presenting your local merchants with a professional looking invitation letter in their own language, you can SIGNIFICANTLY increase the likelihood of getting them on board and actively participating in Localvantia and the Rewardical Loyalty Program!

Be on the lookout in the coming weeks for more translations of Localvantia marketing materials you can use in your local market.

2018 message from Gery

screenshot_3227

To: All SFI Affiliates
From: SFI Founder & President Gery Carson

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Yes, a brand new year has arrived, and with it, fresh opportunity!  We finished up 2017 in strong fashion; now it’s time to grab that momentum and turn it into a BIG, BIG 2018!

REWARDICAL
Leading the way will be our powerful new Rewardical program.  So far, we’ve only shown you the tip of the iceberg.  But there is much, much more to come, including lots of new ways to earn and win Rewardicals.

LOCALVANTIA
Of course, Localvantia will also be a big part of 2018.  Already dozens of merchants from all over the world have officially signed on, but we’re just barely getting started!  If we all work together, we can be celebrating thousands of merchants in the Localvantia network one year from now!

EAGER ZEBRA
We know you love our Eager Zebra games, and we know you want more and different games.  Well, our next great game is on the way…and if everything comes together like it should, it’s just the start of  a big expansion of the Eager Zebra universe.

BITCOIN
Bitcoin was one of the most talked about things in the world in 2017. Well, not only can you make purchases at TripleClicks with Bitcoin, you’ll soon be able to get paid in (receive your commissions) in Bitcoin, too!  Tip: Until this is officially available, you can set your commissions to accumulate on account.  Then, when Bitcoin is available, you can simply change your settings and receive all of the commissions you’ve accumulated into your Bitcoin wallet!

MORE
And, of course, the “Ideas Machine” at SFI (empowered by suggestions from our awesome affiliates around the world) is PROLIFIC, and the current Projects Pipeline is burgeoning…so there’s no doubt we’ll be surprising and delighting you with many other great developments throughout 2018!  Tip: Subscribe at news.sfimg.com and you’ll receive an email of each new development the second it’s announced.


ONE MORE THING…

Even though it was one of THE biggest new developments in 2017, Opti-Build sort of got lost amongst many, many other big developments.  Well, we’d like to see a whole lot more people discover the power of Opti-Build (learn more) in 2018.  And what better way than to introduce some new badges!

Effective January 10th, we’ll be rolling out two prestigious new badges (with four levels each) for those participating in the Opti-Build program and generating POAs (Personally Originated Affiliates).

Generating 25 POAs earns you the basic “Opti-Builder” badge.  Upon generating your 500th POA for your downline, you’ll be awarded the prestigious “500 Club” badge.  Become an Opti-Builder PRO with 750 POAs.  And 1000 POAs puts you in truly rarified air with the gold Opti-Builder ELITE badge:

ob-rank_360.png

In addition to the above four badges, we’re also introducing an Opti-Build leaderboard that recognizes our top Opti-Builders. You’ll sport the basic leaderboard badge by being in the top 200.  Move up to bronze with a leaderboard ranking of 51-100.  Advance to silver with a ranking of 11-50.  Sport the highest leaderboard badge (gold) by making the top 10.

Watch for full details on our eight new Opti-Build badges (including Badge Quest point values) next week.

That’s it for now.  Time to get to work!

GOOD LUCK to all our players!


Important ECA program update

In line with our growing development of the Rewardical program, in January 2018 we plan to have in place a new platform that will allow all ECAs to participate in the Rewardical program and have Rewardical Tokens automatically dispensed to their customers on purchases.

To prepare for this change in our system, we’re no longer accepting new ECA applications, effective immediately. Additionally, no new ECA product listings will be accepted.  Existing listings can be updated if the update is critical, but only by request, and only via a Support ticket.

Similarly, we are also discontinuing acceptance of new Member Listings, effective immediately.

Please bear with us as we make this transition.

More details on the changes coming will be provided in the next few weeks, please watch for further announcements.


Q&A

Q: I’m an existing ECA.  Will you continue to process orders at TripleClicks, pay me sales commissions, etc.?
Yes.
Q: Can I make a product listings inactive if needed?
Yes.
