Seeing SFI through the eyes of your PSAs
To provide effective support to your affiliates, you must be familiar with the experience of your incoming PSAs--the pages they're seeing and the information they're reading.
Therefore, we recommend you review these pages your new affiliates see when they join SFI:1. New Affiliate Welcome at: http://www.sfimg.com/gs2.sfi
2. SFI Basics at: http://www.sfimg.com/SFIBasics.sfi
3. Your SFI Gateway at: www.sfi4.com/[YOUR SFIID]/Real2
Upon review, you'll notice the emphasis is on getting started by earning VersaPoints from performing actions on the SFI To-Do List. In other words, your PSAs learn from the get-go that earning VersaPoints equals earning income.
You can help your PSAs get started right by also focusing on the "score more, earn more" aspect of the SFI program in your own welcome e-mails, team communications, and leadership incentives.
Tip: Getting your affiliates to your leadership page
Your SFI Leadership Page
(LP) is designed as a central page for you to support your downline members. But how do you get your affiliates to your LP?
Your affiliates will find a link to your LP on their "Upline Team
" pages at the Affiliate Center. They'll also see your LP link on the "Contact your Sponsor/Team Leaders" line in the header of the Affiliate Center.
In addition to calling your affiliates' attention to these pages, you can also include a direct link--www.sfimg.com/leadership/YOURSFIID
--in your e-mails to your team.

Earn more commissions: become an ECA referrer
Are there few products you like at TripleClicks.com or no ECAs in your country at the store?
Well, you could simply be patient--we're bringing in dozens of new ECAs every month.
But a much BETTER option
would be to start referring your own ECAs! There may be thousands of other SFI affiliates just like YOU who want to start buying and selling products from local ECAs and/or who want products currently unavailable at TC. By making simple ECA referrals, YOU can begin earning lifetime royalties every time any one of the more than 1.3 million affiliates and TC members buy or sell the products of ECAs you've referred.

. Just click the yellow bubble to initiate an online conversation with that affiliate.A few tips:
* If you're chatting with a person who's primary language is different than your own, keep Google Translate open in another browser window so you can cut and paste text as needed to translate your conversation.
* When initiating contact with downline members, focus on how you can help them. Support and assist your downline, and you will build a stronger, more profitable group.
NOTE: If the bubble icon is gray, it means the individual is not online, or he/she has not entered IM information, or has not given your permission to contact him or her via IM.

Marketing Tip: Team-growing resources at TripleClicks.com
Make it a habit to browse Tripleclicks.com
and locate business-related products, especially those about marketing and sales, that you think your team members could find useful. Pay particular attention to new items specifically for affiliates in the SFI department
(log on first to view that department).
Use the PSA Mailer
and the CSA Mailer
to send your affiliates a brief message about it. Be sure to include the product link, so your team members can easily find it in the store to order. Another idea would be to include a blurb about a product and its store link in your regular team newsletters or other regular communications with your downline.
You can view your ECA Referrals in a single report via your My Reports index. The ECA Referral report
lists your ECAs from newest to oldest and features each ECA's company name, contact information, and customer referral link. You'll also see columns listing the date the ECA applied for participation in the program, the approval date (if applicable), and the number of products listed at TripleClicks.com.
This handy report makes it easy for you to view at a glance all your ECAs' information and their product counts at the store. Use this data to offer product placement help for new ECAs with no product counts, encourage individual ECAs with growing product counts, and more.
WHY DOES YOUR ECA REFERRAL REPORT MATTER?
Your success as an SFI affiliate (and your team's success), is tied directly to the success of TripleClicks--and our ECAs are a big part of TripleClicks. The more successful your ECAs are, the more successful YOU will be. A robust ECA program means more products and services, better prices, lower shipping costs, and MORE sales...which all adds up to bigger commissions for you!
And by referring ECAs, you can also benefit directly with royalties on ALL your ECAs' sales at TripleClicks for life! Learn more HERE
