Are you serious? 

Are you planning on earning a significant, ongoing income with SFI? Then you'll want to get your own Payoneer debit card as soon as you can.

In addition to picking up 500 VP for the month, you'll also then be able to receive your commissions every month quickly and securely on your card in your own currency. You'll also be able to use your card when making any purchase at (including products, services, marketing aids, S-Builder co-op units, TCredits, etc.). You can even use it as a payment option for your Standing Orders!

Your Payoneer debit card also makes a great recruiting tool; pull it out of your wallet and show people just how you get paid every month on this card for your SFI Internet business. They'll be able to see that this is a real business with real profits...and who wouldn't want to be part of that?

Leadership Tool: Profile Scores 

Identify potential future stars in your affiliate team with Profile Scores!

Here's how it works: Our system reviews the responses your affiliates have given to questions on their Affiliate Profiles. We assign a point value to each response to help identify affiliates who have set high goals, committed to investing significant time or money into their new business, are experienced in network marketing or Internet marketing, and/or who have past leadership experience, and so on. These point values are all added altogether to create the affiliate's Profile Score.

These Profile Scores allow you to quickly get an idea of your affiliate's level of motivation and commitment, and maybe even an insight into the kind of affiliate this person is going to be.

That said, there are limitations to how much weight you should put on the Profile Score for any given affiliate. Keep in mind that the score is only a number based on Affiliate Profile responses. A high score does not guarantee a future Platinum Team Leader. Likewise, a low score doesn't necessarily indicate that an affiliate is going to go nowhere. High or low, ALL your affiliates should be greeted with enthusiasm and strong support!

You can find Profile Scores in the e-mail notifications you receive whenever one of your PSAs completes their Affiliate Profile. Also, you will soon be able to see Profile Scores on the Affiliate Manager and Genealogy.

Connecting the dots in your area... 

Setting up a local "SFI Club" can be an effective and fun way to brainstorm and share ideas on building a profitable SFI business with REAL, live affiliates in your area. One easy way to connect with local SFI business owners is via a2a, SFI's affiliate-to-affiliate communication program.

Using a2a, you can search, browse, and exchange messages with other affiliates in your area and easily and quickly set up informal meetings, strategy sessions, or other offline get-togethers. NOTE: Remember, cross-solicitation is forbidden in SFI.

To get started, you must first register as an a2a member here.

Once you're registered, you can immediately start browsing the a2a roster, exchanging messages, and more. The more a2a members, the more valuable a2a is, so be sure to encourage all your affiliates to get registered.

Note that TeamTalk is for your SFI business only! Using TeamTalk to spam will result in suspension of your account.

Pricebenders winning tips 

Pricebenders penny auctions at TripleClicks are a huge hit. But a lot of bidders engage in counter-productive actions that actually cost auction wins! Fortunately, many of these actions boil down to common--and avoidable--mistakes.

One of the biggest mistakes we see is people waiting too long to bid. Connectivity issues, computer crashes, latency (network delays), and other factors may interfere with your bid. If you wait till the last few seconds to bid, you're running the risk that your bid won't go through in time. And make sure you understand that when you bid, it just resets the auction clock, so being the last one to bid before the clock hits zero may just keep you from winning if your bid is delayed by one of the afore-mentioned technical issues. If your strategy is to wait until the "last possible moment," we recommend bidding with NO LESS THAN 5 seconds remaining.

Of course, as mentioned, this is just ONE of the mistakes to watch out for. To help you out, we've gathered a list of 15 common sense do's and don'ts to help you win Pricebenders auctions. It's a quick but essential read for anyone wanting to participate successfully in our penny auctions. Access the article at:

Putting a stop to frequent Affiliate Center log-offs 

Are you experiencing frequent log-offs when surfing your SFI Affiliate Center ( Most likely, the issue is a result of security settings on your computer and is easy to fix.

First, a little background: SFI's system requires ONE login per session, set at 45 minutes (an established standard duration for secure sites such as ours). So long as an affiliate does not remain on any one page longer than 45 minutes, he or she will remain logged in to the Affiliate Center indefinitely. NOTE: An infrequent exception (normally less than once a week) is when SFI Administration needs to restart the system.

If you're experiencing frequent log-offs, it is probably due to one of these common causes for failure to access secured SFI pages:

* SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 must be checked in your Internet options. In Internet Explorer, you can access these settings via the Tools menu, then Internet Options and the Advanced tab.

* Firewall programs, especially Norton, frequently block access to SFI's secure pages. If you are running a firewall on your computer, check the program's settings to ensure SFI pages are allowed.

* If you have disabled third-party cookies in your browser, you must specify in the cookie settings/permissions to allow
