Genealogy Tip: Switching format views within your sorts 

Within your SFI Genealogy report, you can use the sorts and filters within any format you choose. HOWEVER, did you know that you can then switch to a different format with the sorts and filters intact? This could save you lots of time when creating multiple lists for issuing gift certificates, reassigning affiliates, and more.

a2a: Network with your SFI peers 

SFI's social networking program, a2a, lets you search, browse, and exchange messages with ANY SFI affiliate.

a2a allows you to identify SFI affiliates in your own country, state/province, or city; or search by gender, age, join date, common goals, and more...or any combination!

You can also create "buddy lists," brainstorm, share tips, discuss SFI news, and more.

One of the most valuable attributes of a2a is what it provides in LOCALIZED assistance. For example, by contacting other SFI affiliates in your area, you can learn about the best marketing methods and strategies for your region of the world.

Here's another great way to use a2a: Contact local affiliates in your area and form local SFI support groups and organize local get-togethers.

But don't stop there. With a2a's powerful search capabilities, you can find affiliates just like you to interact with. For example, let's say you're a 35-year-old female who lives in London, England. Let's also say you joined SFI three months ago. With a few clicks and a quick search, you can locate other SFI affiliates of your same age, gender, and location who started in SFI the same time as you did!

Click HERE to register and begin using a2a.

QUICKTIP: Marketing individual TripleClicks.com products 

SFI makes it easy to market an individual product from the TripleClicks store:

1. Log in at TripleClicks.com.

2. Locate the product you wish to promote.

This box contains the VersaPoints and CV for the item, plus the amounts of Customer Commissions (CC) that can be earned selling this product. Also listed in this box is the URL (Web address) you must use to market the product—it contains your SFI ID number so you will be credited with any subsequent sales. Copy this URL.

NOTE: In your promotions of individual products, you are allowed to use images from the product details page. You may also use the product name and a brief description.

Cool TC Credits Tips 

You can purchase TC credits to earn EA status. For as little as $27.86, you can earn an EA-qualifying 10 SVP. And because TC credits are an 100% digital product, there's no extra shipping cost.

CLARIFICATION: You will need to purchase FOURTEEN single $1.99 credits.

There are a variety of credit bundles available. To review all of your TC credit options, go to TripleClicks.com and search on the keyword "credits." Note that the more credits you buy, the cheaper they are (as little as 19 cents apiece in fact).

Once you have your credits, what to do with them? You can give them away as free samples to generate new customers (search on "TC X-Cards" at TC to learn more about this).

You can of course also use the credits to sell your stuff, which allows you to convert your credits into more money than you paid for the credits! Don't have anything to sell? Hit your local flea markets and garage sales and you can pick up tons of stuff for pennies on the dollar that you can turn around and sell on TripleClicks for great profits.

And coming soon...a variety of other things at TC you can redeem your TC credits for.

How cool is that? You can go executive (become an EA) for less than $20 a month, get all the numerous EA benefits , AND have the ability to convert the cost of your credits into hundreds of dollars!

And to make it ultra-convenient, you can even set yourself up to receive your bundle of credits each month via a Standing Order so that you are automatically an EA each month! Just click the green Standing Order button at TripleClicks for the TC bundle you want to set this us for.

Thanks to SFI Affiliate John Blackwell for providing the genesis for this tip!
