Have you checked out your SFI Rules Of Success? 

Last week, we unveiled our set of rules for success, distilled from our 11+ year history and the extensive investment of literally millions of dollars and hours by SFI and affiliates.

For over the last 60 years, literally millions of people have participated in our type of business (network marketing). And through many years of trial and error, and hundreds of millions of dollars spent on figuring out what works and what doesn't, we have a very clear picture of what leads to success.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The person who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The person who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble."

This is sage advice indeed. In our case, hundreds of methods and strategies for building your SFI business have been provided, but if you do not know the principles (i.e. rules) behind them, a very, very large void exists in your approach!

SFI Rules of Success is designed to fill this gap and illustrate for you the ABSOLUTE MOST VITAL tenets of our business. Rules that when followed bring success. Rules that when ignored or violated bring failure!

Take a few moments NOW and start learning the rules and start telling your team members about them. And, most importantly, start actively APPLYING these rules to your business and life!

You can begin with SFI President Gery Carson's introduction to SFI Rules of Success HERE.

Extra Tip for Team Leaders (and future Team Leaders): Write a newsletter (to send to your team) and/or a training article for your team Website about each rule. Create up to 20 separate articles. Reference the individual rule title and URL...and then "frame" it with your own comments and insights.

Easy-to-find SFI marketing items at TC 

It's easy to find the SFI-related items you and your team members are looking for. Instead of searching among general items in the TC catalog for specific SFI, ECA, and TC items (X-Cards, postcards, brochures, T-shirts, hats, etc.), simply:

1. Log in at TC using your SFI ID and password.

2. Click the "SFI" department located in the department list on the left side of the TC homepage. All SFI-specific items will be displayed for you.

3. To narrow your result, use the filters in the sidebar. For example, if you're looking for TC shirts to use when contacting prospective ECAs, click the TripleClicks filter.

*The SFI department is for SFI Affiliates ONLY. You must first log in to TC to access the department.

Marketing Index Tip 

The recently overhauled Marketing index at the SFI Affiliate Center helps you find the marketing methods and aids you and your team members want. Look for "Mktg" (replacing "R&S") in the main menu. The Marketing index organizes Marketing Methods and Marketing Aids into categories for Referring Members, Sponsoring Affiliates, and EyeEarn, as well as the E-Commerce Associates (ECA) and ClickBucks Supplemental Income Programs.

As part of the re-organization, EyeEarn marketing aids and methods are now separated from the Refer and Sponsor marketing sections. This change lets affiliates interested in using EyeEarn to simultaneously sponsor affiliates and refer TripleClicks members easily find only the EyeEarn aids and methods they're looking for. Note: Though encouraged, participation in the EyeEarn Co-op is NOT required to use EyeEarn marketing aids.

SFI Affiliate Question Of The Week  

What are the best actions to focus on for earning VersaPoints?

A: The ones that create income for you of course! You create revenue in your organization from sales and purchases made at TripleClicks.com by the customers you REFER and the affiliates you SPONSOR...and then you MAXIMIZE the commissions you earn on that revenue by achieving the maximum number of VersaPoints you can each month. In this way, by focusing on referring and sponsoring, you can both create AND maximize your earnings with SFI.

You will, of course, want to complete all the Training and Business Set-Up Actions on your To-Do List, but the income you earn ultimately comes from your referring and sponsoring activities.
