How to reduce the cost of your S-Builder Co-op 

If you're willing to do a little extra work, consider "co-oping the co-op"!

Simply send out a message to your PSA's (personally sponsored affiliates) and/or CSA's (co-sponsored affiliates) using the PSA Mailer and CSA Mailer. Let them know that you are willing to split the cost of S-Builder units with any of your PSA's or CSAs who buy a unit (or units). Instruct them to make their purchase and then e-mail you a copy of the receipt and their PayPal address. Then, reimburse them for half of what they paid via PayPal.

This is a perfect win/win for both parties. You get PSA's and CSA's actively involved in SFI, they get S-Builder at half-price, and you, of course, essentially get S-Builder at half-price, too! Although the sign-ups won't be personally sponsored/referred by you, you'll be driving DUPLICATION within your team. And duplication is what creates wealth in your business.

PLUS...if any of your PSAs become inactive, all the affiliates and members they received will roll up to you, so you really have little to lose!

Take a few moments right now and find out more about S-Builder and "co-oping the co-op" here. You'll want to also check out SFI President Gery Carson's article "SFI Co-op Manager & The Magic Of Co-oping."

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.

QuickTip: Focus on your affiliates' concerns 

Did you know recent surveys of workers and retirees show more than 25% of workers and retirees say they have less than $1,000 saved for their "golden years"?

What does this mean to you as a business leader and SFI Affiliate Sponsor? Discussing the disparity of your affiliates' retirement dreams with their possibly low current retirement savings can motivate them to take action NOW with an SFI business of their own.

You can focus on the contrast of today's retirement savings and lifelong dreams in your ads for prospective affiliates. SFI has made this easy with these handsome financial- and retirement-focused banners you can start to use immediately.

Additionally, consider broaching the topic in a segment in your next communication or newsletter with your team. Point out the extra-income benefits of an SFI business of their own and refer them to the SFI Affiliate Center for assistance and resources. Access your Genealogy and click the "Send an e-mail/team mail to this group" link for an easy way to send e-mails to your team. You could also use the PSA Mailer to send your message to just your personally sponsored affiliates.

A powerful resource: Tap into your upline!

Grow your commissions with this great new tip 

When you receive notifications of new personally sponsored affiliates, log in at the Affiliate Center IMMEDIATELY (while they are still online) and initiate a chat with them! The email notification contains a link for this.

This is a great way to make a great first impression and it can be HUGE for you in getting your affiliates engaged and active--which is key for growing your business and your monthly commissions!

SFI Affiliate Question of the Week 

Q: How does the SFI Gift Certificate program work?

A: It's simple: use the Gift Certificate Manager to add funds to your Gift Certificate account, view pending certificates, etc. To issue a Gift Certificate to one of your affiliates, go to your Genealogy Report (Gift Certificate Format). Then click the "Buy Now" link to purchase a Gift Certificate for a specific affiliate.

The SFI system then automatically sends your affiliate a special e-mail notifying them of the discount you've offered and the deadline. There will also be a special link included to quickly and easily access and choose an EA-qualifying product or products from—your affiliates will receive the discount you've authorized right off the top! These redemptions will be deducted from a special account you will fund.

Duplication Tip 

Create a contest for your affiliates based on Power Rank points. It could be a prize for the most points accumulated in an upcoming month (so everyone has the entire month). Or, you could award a prize to every affiliate who achieves a top five ranking in their class or any other criteria of your choosing.

Prizes could be SFI gift certificates, a free spot in your co-op, X number of reassigned affiliates, or any number of other things. Be creative.

Many people love to compete for prizes like this, but be sure to recognize your winners in your newsletter and/or on your team website or blog, too, as many people like being recognized as much or even more than receiving prizes!

SFI Executive Affiliate Lyle Kannenberg had this to say about this topic:

"Since the launch of the Power Rank system, I've seen huge participation from new personally sponsored affiliates (and I'm running an extra incentive contest as well). So far this month, two of my new signups are breaking records on my team!"

QUICK TIP: Commitment Messages 

We recently unveiled a new Power Rank pointable action for sending your sponsor an SFI "Commitment Message." Read more about this HERE.

If you're the sponsor and you receive a Commitment Message, make sure you respond to the affiliate who sent you the message immediately. If you're not doing this, you're wasting GOLDEN opportunities for creating invaluable duplication in your group!

Conversely, if you haven't yet sent your sponsor your Commitment Message, don't put it off any longer! Your sponsor may be waiting to receive your Committment Message before they offer you co-op spots, reassignments, and/or other valuable benefits! That is, they may be looking for people to "raise their hands." Show your sponsor you're someone they should invest in by sending them your Commitment Message.
