Grab 50 FREE CSAs!

PeopleGrowthArrowSMALL

Due to SFI’s exceptional growth during the past few weeks, we’ve got an extra 50,000 unassigned CSAs currently looking for a co-sponsor.

Here’s how YOU can grab up to 50 of them for yourself today:

Place a regular order for 50 TCredits anytime between now and the end of July and we’ll immediately award you 25 CSAs if your rank is Affiliate…or 50 CSAs if your rank is Executive Affiliate or Team Leader.

It’s that simple:  Buy 50 TCredits for $21 and receive up to 50 CSAs!

Want even more CSAs?  So that everyone has an opportunity to get a share of these CSAs, we’re limiting everyone to one pack of 50 TCredits per day.  However, you may order another pack of 50 TCredits every day until the end of the month, if desired, to gather even more CSAs.

Yes, this offer for 50 TCredits/50 CSAs is one of the best deals we’ve ever made available to our affiliates.  However, it IS a first-come, first-served deal with a finite number of unassigned CSAs available.  Once the 50,000 are gone, the offer is over, so don’t wait too long if you want to take advantage.


Bitcoin sign

Special Tip: You can make this special offer even sweeter if you choose Bitcoin as your payment method.  That is, if you order your 50 TCredits pack with Bitcoin, you’ll automatically receive 10 free Bonus TCredits!  That means SIXTY TCredits and up to 50 CSAs all for just $21.

To learn more about using Bitcoin at TripleClicks, see this June 22nd announcement.


Be an awesome Co-Sponsor!

When you receive your CSAs, let them know right away that you’ve been assigned as their Co-Sponsor and that you’re there to assist and support them.  Note: Though some of the CSAs you receive may have signed up during the past few weeks, they have never been assigned a co-sponsor.  YOU will be their first.

To send your welcome message, go to your Genealogy and use the “CSA Assign Date” filter with the appropriate date to pull up just the CSAs you’ve just been assigned. Then click the “Send an e-mail/team mail to this group” link.

For sample welcome letters and other helpful ideas on supporting your new CSAs, see:

The Builder Bundle is here!

businessbundle_logo
SFI works best, of course, when there is duplication from generation to generation.

Today, we’re announcing a new product designed to make duplication simple and easy for all affiliates.

The Builder Bundle delivers to you a powerful monthly package of up to 20 new PSAs and CSAs and 100 mighty TCredits…all at a special low price.  To make it even more powerful, Builder Bundle also generously includes 100 MRP…and 1500 VP!

The price for this bounteous bundle of goodies is just $59.  The actual total value of this bundle is $68…saving you $9!

For just $1.94 a day (about the cost of a cup of coffee), you get, each month:

  • An EA-qualifying 1500 VP!
  • 100 Mighty TCredits!
  • 8 freshly-generated  PSAs and 2 CSAs to continually infuse your group with growth and momentum!
  • 100 valuable Member Rewards Points (MRP)!

Set up Auto-Delivery for an even bigger value!

The above version is for if you buy Builder Bundle just once.  But set your Builder Bundle for monthly auto-delivery, and the price drops to just $55.

Builder Bundle auto-delivered, besides an even better price (just $1.81 a day), gets you TEN additional CSAs added (via CSA Rewards). This puts the actual total value of this bundle at $113…for a whopping savings of $58!

The auto-delivered Builder Bundle includes the following items:

  • An EA-qualifying 1500 VP!
  • 100 Mighty TCredits!
  • 20 fresh PSAs and CSAs (8 PSAs and 12 CSAs) to continually infuse your group with growth and momentum!
  • 100 valuable Member Rewards Points (MRP)!
  • A prestigious new badge (see below) that comes with 500 Badge Quest points!

Each Builder Bundle also includes $20.00 CV.  That means a sizable $9.00 Direct Commission for Sponsors, a nice $3.00 commission for Co-Sponsors, and an ample $8.00 going into the TripleClicks Executive Pool for profit sharing on every Builder Bundle unit sold!

For SFI affiliates serious about building a lucrative internet business with continual monthly growth, the Builder Bundle is a slam dunk deal!  Thus, it’s a GREAT item for your team members, too.

Not sure how to set up an Auto-Delivery?  Go HERE.


Get the BADGE, too!

If you set up your Builder Bundle as an Auto-Delivery, you’ll also qualify for our cool new “Building Something Great!” badge, as show here:

bb-badge4

Note: The new “Building Something Great!” badge comes with a big 500 Badge Quest points, too!


THE PLAN…revised and rechristened!

We also wanted you to see Builder Bundles “in action!”  So we’ve updated THE PLAN with new information that shows how much you can earn and how big your group can become if  everyone has a monthly Builder Bundle subscription.

And because we wanted THE PLAN to be more descriptive of its role and objective, we’re also renaming it The Diamond Plan.

To make Builder Bundles even more of a slam dunk deal, if you’re one of the first 500 persons to set up an Auto-Delivery order for one or more Builder Bundles, we’re also going to drop 75 additional CSAs into your Genealogy!  

HURRY, this very special offer EXPIRES at midnight CST on March 15th, 2017.


Q & A

Q: Can I order more than one Builder Bundle?
At this time, yes you can.  Limits may be necessary in the future, however.

Q: Are the 12 CSAs we receive each month with Builder Bundle new or “Second Home CSAs?”
They are the newest CSAs available who have not yet been assigned a sponsor.  Typically, they will have joined SFI within the last few days.  You will be their first Co-Sponsor in SFI.

Q: Are the 75 bonus CSAs we receive for being one of the first 500 persons to order new or “Second Home CSAs?”
They are CSAs that have joined SFI in the last 2-3 months who have not yet been assigned a Co-Sponsor.  You will be their first Co-Sponsor in SFI.

Q: Are the 12 new CSAs included in a Builder Bundle in addition to the CSAs that come from CSA Rewards?
Ten of the 12 are courtesy of CSA Rewards.  Two are in addition to and are exclusively  for Builder Bundle buyers.

CLAIMING YOUR CO-SPONSORED AFFILIATES:

Each time you qualify for one or more CSAs from the CSA Rewards program, you’ll receive an alert on your Alerts Tab.  You’ll then need to visit the CSA Rewards Ledger and click the “CLAIM” button to get your CSA(s)*.  Your request will immediately be queued and your CSA(s) will be added to your Genealogy as soon as new CSAs are available.  This will normally be within 24 hours.  CSAs that go unclaimed after 30 days are forfeited.

Check your Alerts Tab NOW to see if you have any CSAs to claim. Then be sure to welcome them to your team and start working with them!

*  There is one exception on CSA claims: For the two CSAs that brand new affiliates receive upon initially achieving the rank of EA, claiming is not required.  Rather, for first-time EAs, the two CSAs will be awarded automatically.

Introducing…CSA Rewards!

screenshot_1048

We are very excited today to debut a major, new SFI program.  Effective immediately, all affiliates can now earn 10, 20, 30 or more new, income-boosting CSAs every month!

Here’s how it works:

Everyone is familiar with our program that awards 2 CSAs each month for going EA.  The new CSA Rewards program takes that same concept and drastically expands it so that you can now earn CSAs for dozens of actions!

One of the easiest ways to score a plentiful load of new CSAs every month is by setting up a qualifying Standing Order.  You’ll now receive…

  • 10 CSAs each month (120/year) with a min. 1500 VP Standing Order -OR-
  • 12 CSAs each month (144/year) with a min. 2000 VP Standing Order -OR-
  • 20 CSAs each month (240/year) with a min. 3000 VP Standing Order

If you already have a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order now, you’ll automatically begin receiving these new CSAs.  Feel free, however, to increase your Standing Order so that you may receive more CSAs each month.


BRILLIANT white stamp text on green

SPECIAL, LIMITED TIME BONUS!

GRAB A SHARE OF 25,000 OR MORE BONUS CSAs!

For those who have a 1500, 2000, or 3000 VP Standing Order in place before the end of February, we’re also going to give you a share of a minimum of 25,000 BONUS CSAs!

  • You will receive one share for each 1000 VP contained in your Standing Order.

i.e., a 1500 VP Standing Order will get you one share, a 2000 VP Standing Order will get you two shares, and a 3000 VP Standing Order will get you three shares.

How many CSAs will each share represent?  That’s impossible to say, of course, as it will depend 100% on how many shares are qualified for before the end of the month.  Hopefully, however, it will be at least 8-10 CSAs per share.  But, again, that’s only an estimate.  It could be less, it could be much more.  Keep in mind that if it’s less, that will mean a LOT of people (including potentially some or many in your downline) have set up a new Standing Order…and that’s a VERY good thing…and much more valuable than a one-time allotment of CSAs.

If you already have a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order now, you’ll automatically receive one share of the Bonus CSAs.  Feel free, however, to increase your Standing Order before the end of February so that you can receive one or two additional shares.


But that’s just the tip of the iceberg…

Standing Orders are just the headliner for the new CSA Rewards program.  Here are the other 28 ways to earn monthly CSAs:

Quantity shown represents the number of CSAs you’ll receive each month.
Minimum rank of EA required to receive CSAs.

  • 2 for being an EA or EA2
  • 3 for being a BTL (Bronze Team Leader)
  • 4 for being a STL (Silver Team Leader)
  • 6 for being a GTL (Gold Team Leader)
  • 8 for being a PTL (Platinum Team Leader)
  • 10 for being a DTL (Diamond Team Leader)
  • 1 for being a Fast-Track Silver member
  • 3 for being a Fast-Track Gold member
  • 5 for being an E365 Champion
  • 1 for being top 3 in your Power Rank Class
  • 1 for having the silver-trimmed Top Sponsor badge
  • 2 for having the gold-trimmed Top Sponsor badge
  • 1 for having the silver-trimmed Top Co-Sponsor badge
  • 2 for having the gold-trimmed Top Co-Sponsor badge
  • 5 for having the TC Top 100 Seller badge
  • 1 for having the silver-trimmed Top VP badge
  • 2 for having the gold-trimmed Top VP badge
  • 1 for having the silver-trimmed Overall Power Rank badge
  • 2 for having the gold-trimmed Overall Power Rank badge
  • 1 for having the gold-trimmed Country Power Rank badge
  • 1 for having the gold-trimmed EA Streak badge
  • 1 for having the gold-trimmed ECA Referrals badge
  • 1 for having the silver-trimmed Fast-Track PSAs badge
  • 2 for having the gold-trimmed Fast-Track PSAs badge
  • 1 for having the latest Leadership Challenge badge
  • 1 for having the gold-trimmed Ask SC Top Author badge
  • 1 for having the gold-trimmed Likes badge
  • 1 for having the gold-trimmed Daily VP Streak badge

Tip: To view the qualifications for all the SFI badges, see the BADGES GALLERY.

We are also looking at adding some fun CONTESTS in which you’ll be able to win even more CSAs from the CSA Rewards program monthly.

IMPORTANT NOTES: 

  1. Some restrictions apply. See CSA Rewards Ledger (coming soon) for details.
  2. There is a FINITE supply of CSAs available each month.  Though we do not anticipate having a month where there are not enough new CSAs available to fulfill delivery of every CSA earned from the CSA Rewards program, it IS possible.  Should this occur, fulfillment will be prioritized, first-come, first-served, with Standing Order CSAs being awarded first, those with Team Leader ranks next, then EAs with the longest seniority.  For any actual shortage, TCredits, on a one-to-one basis (one TCredit per CSA), will be substituted for CSAs.  Again, however, this is a contingency plan ONLY.

Q & A

Q: Do I still have to maintain my EA status to keep the CSAs I acquire?
Yes!  It’s VITAL that you maintain your EA status.  Otherwise, ALL of your CSAs will be forfeited, no matter how you’ve acquired them.

Q: What’s the best way to make sure I maintain my EA status?
The best and easiest way is to set up a Standing Order, and if it’s for at least 1500 VP, it will also earn you 10 fresh, new CSAs each month (120/year).  Or get 12 CSAs/mo. with a 2000 VP Standing Order…or a big 20 a month (240/year) with a 3000 VP Standing Order!

Q: I already sport some of the badges on the CSA Rewards list.  Does that mean I’ll now start automatically receiving the CSAs associated with these badges each month?
Yes, just claim them from the CSA Rewards Ledger (coming soon).  Add even more CSAs by meeting the qualifications for other badges.

Q: When during the month will the CSAs I’ve earned be awarded to me?
For Standing Order CSAs, Rank CSAs, E365 CSAs, and Fast-Track CSAs, fulfillment will be approximately immediately upon meeting the qualification.  For all others, the CSAs must necessarily be awarded after the month has closed, all of the month’s business concluded, and commissions processed.   That is, on or about the 10th of the month for the previous month’s activity.

IMPORTANT: The above schedule is for March and beyond.  For February–this being a MAJOR NEW program being launched in the middle of the month–please be patient while we process all the CSAS earned this month, as they will need to be awarded manually.

Q: Do the Standing Orders for CSA Rewards have to be exactly 1500, 2000, or 3000 VP?
No, those are the just the minimums. You can make your Standing Order any size you want.

Q: What is the age of the CSAs I’ll be receiving?
We currently have a backlog of never-been-assigned CSAs going back as far as a several weeks, some of which will be used for the Bonus CSAs.  Otherwise, the CSAs you receive going forward each month should typically be fresh, with the sign-up dates within days, and can even include brand new/today’s signups.  Some exceptions to this general rule may be seen occasionally, however, if supply outpaces demand appreciably.

Q: Will I be notified of CSAs that I have received?
All CSAs are claimed from the CSA Rewards Ledger (coming soon) by you.  Therefore, you will always know when new CSAs have been awarded to you.  And, of course, you can use the various filters in the Genealogy to always identify any group of CSAs you’ve received for any date, etc.

Q: I already have a Standing Order set up for 1500 or more VP.  Do I get the Bonus CSAs?
Yes, they should be added to your account by the end of February.

Q: When will I receive the CSAs each month for having a qualifying Standing Order?
After your Standing Order has been successful processed and payment verified.  Note that all CSAs earned from the CSA Rewards program must be claimed at the CSA Rewards Ledger (coming soon).  That is, a “Claim” button will be provided next to each action.  Click the “Claim” button to receive delivery of the CSAs earned.

Q: Why am I required to manually claim the CSAs I’ve earned?  Why not just automatically provide them to me?
This nominal requirement is necessary to ensure that no CSAs are “wasted” on affiliates who are no longer actively working their SFI business and/or who can no longer fulfill (or are no longer willing to fulfill) the responsibilities of being a Co-Sponsor.

Q: What if I receive CSAs that are not active?  Can I get replacements?
Sorry, replacing inactive affiliates isn’t feasible.  And always remember that it will be a numbers game.  The majority of people who join SFI will never commit to do the work required to be successful (success comes before work ONLY in the dictionary). This is just a reality that must be accepted.  However, just as YOU “get” SFI (as do tens of thousands of other affiliates), you will of course acquire smart and active CSAs too.  They may not show up right away, but if you continue working your business and working with your team members, you’ll receive your share of active CSAs, some that may go on to be amongst SFI’s highest-achieving affiliates!

Q: Is it possible there will be other actions added to the list or the number of CSAs for some actions increased?
Yes, but first we have to see exactly how many CSAs are being earned and how fast the program is growing.  Remember, there is a FINITE supply of CSAs each month; we can’t award more CSAs than we have CSAs to give out.  We need to be a bit conservative to start and see how the program develops during the initial months before we can expand it.

Q: Do actions “stack?”  If I advance from EA, to BTL, to STL, in one month, do I earn CSAs for each action?
Some actions do, yes.  In this example, you’d earn 2 + 3 + 4 for a total of 9 CSAs for that month if you advanced from EA to STL.  However, you couldn’t, for example, earn 1 CSA for having a silver-trimmed badge and two more CSAs for having the gold-trimmed version of the SAME badge, as it’s not possible to possess two or more versions of the same badge.

CSA Reassignment tool now available to BTLs!

screenshot_908Effective immediately, ALL Team Leaders–including Bronze Team Leaders–have the ability to reassign their CSAs throughout their downline!

By strategically reassigning CSAs, all TLs can now provide the incentive for downline affiliates to both become EAs and maintain the minimum rank of EA every month!

If you’ve been anxious for ways to re-qualify for your Team Leader rank under the new 2016 TL requirements, this tool may be what you’ve been looking for!

One of the best features of the CSA Reassignment program is that if you reassign CSAs to someone, and they do not maintain their EA rank (or, in the case of someone who has not yet reached the rank of EA, if they do not achieve the rank of EA), they roll back up to YOU! So, either your reassigned CSAs create EAs for you…or you get the CSAs returned back to you (and you resume your role as their Co-Sponsor with all the Co-Sponsor benefits you had before).

And for the person to whom you reassigned the CSAs–provided they maintain their EA status–it’s a WIN too, because you’re helping them build their team…and potentially their commissions, also.

For more information about the CSA Reassignment tool, see this Knowledge Base article.


Major new team-building tool now available!

screenshot_908

We are very excited today to announce a powerful new team-building tool for Team Leaders.  Effective immediately, Silver Team Leaders and up have the ability to reassign their CSAs throughout their downline!

Why is this a tool to be excited about?  Because by strategically reassigning CSAs, you can now provide the incentive for many members of your group to both become EAs and maintain the minimum rank of EA every month!

Especially for those of you anxious for ways to re-qualify at your current TL rank after the new TL requirements go into effect in January, this may very well be THE tool you’ve been looking for!

One of the best features of the new CSA Reassignment program is that if you reassign CSAs to someone, and they do not maintain their EA rank (or, in the case of someone who has not yet reached the rank of EA, if they do not achieve the rank of EA), they roll back up to YOU!

That’s right…it’s a great big WIN/WIN!  Either your reassigned CSAs create EAs for you…or you get the CSAs returned back to you (and you resume your role as their Co-Sponsor with all the Co-Sponsor benefits you had before).

And for the person who you reassigned the CSAs to–provided they maintain their EA status of course–it’s a WIN too, because you’ve markedly helped them build their team and potentially their commissions, also.

There is MUCH, MUCH more to this new tool, but rather than include in this post all the how-to information, restrictions, strategies, FAQs, etc., please see the following new Knowledge Base article:

https://www.sfimg.com/Support/Solution?catid=26444&id=215051

Team Leaders are also invited to come join a special discussion about this new tool in a Team Leader-only sub-forum at the SFI Forum here:

https://www.sfimg.com/forum/thread?post_id=387923#post-387923

P.S. For those who are not yet an STL, you’ll of course have full access to this new tool, too, as soon as you achieve the rank of STL.
