SFI Affiliate Question of the Week  

Q: What are the best actions to focus on to earn commissions?

A: You create revenue in your organization from sales and purchases made at TripleClicks.com by the customers you REFER and the affiliates you SPONSOR. In other words, you CREATE revenue in your organization by referring and sponsoring...and then you MAXIMIZE the commissions you earn on that revenue by achieving the maximum number of VersaPoints you can each month. Therefore, by focusing on referring and sponsoring, you can both create AND maximize your earnings with SFI. Learn more about referring and sponsoring here.

Affiliate Manager tools and tips 

A couple of new additions to the Affiliate Manager lets you better track your affiliate's progress in the SFI program.

Look for the pencil icon beside your affiliate's e-mail listing. Click it for a small popup "notes" window, where you can record your specific notes about this particular affiliate. These notes are private and for your eyes only--your affiliate will NOT see them. Click Save Note when you're done.

Second, we've added information about the VersaPoints needed for your affiliate to advance to the next point level. Armed with this data, you can send off a quick e-mail letting your affiliate know how close he or she is to the next level and include a few suggestions for actions to close the gap.

These are just two of the MANY tools available for you at the Affiliate Manager. To access this resource, simply click the SFI ID number of a given affiliate in your Genealogy report. The Affiliate Manager for that affiliate will open in a new window.

And be sure to check out "Affiliate Manager Tips: Getting the most from your Affiliate Manager" for details on using the Affiliate Manager.

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.

3. At the bottom of the details page for the product, you will see a light blue "SFI Info Box." 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.

4. Refer prospects to this URL. From there, SFI will process any orders generated by you and pay you the appropriate sales commissions. You'll also receive an immediate e-mail notification each time you generate a sale.

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.

QUICKTIP: Easy, quick, and free language translation for your global business 

Running a global business from home might be a simpler matter than it was before the Internet, but one age-old obstacle to international business still remains--the language barrier.

But thanks again to the Internet, that barrier is also being eroded with a plethora of free online translation programs. Although far from perfect, these programs can help you communicate with team members in countries around the world:


Simple to use, these programs allow you to simply cut and paste your text into a special window and translate with the click of a button.

Give them a try!

PS: And don't forget to let your affiliates know that SFI also provides one-click translation for our sites. Just look for the country flag at the bottom of SFI pages.
