Pricebender strategies for you and your team 



Pricebenders Auctions are a new and exciting feature of the TripleClicks store. These popular penny auctions are sure to attract even more TC members and, therefore, more overall store sales (and profits for you)!

Encourage your team members to check out Pricebenders and increase their and your chances of winning with these strategies, which you can include in your newsletter or other team communication:

* Read all the Pricebenders™ FAQs and familiarize how our auctions work before bidding.

* Go to TripleClicks.com and simply observe auction activity for a while before jumping in. This will give TC Members an idea of how Pricebenders work.

* It's vital to determine how much you're willing to bid on a particular auction BEFORE you begin...and then stick to that limit.

* Make sure you have enough TCredits as you'll need for bidding. You don't want to run out of credits at the last moment of the auction! TCredits can be purchased HERE.

* Pay close attention to the auction timer. If the counter almost reaches zero again and again before starting over, it means that there are probably not many users bidding on that item...and you have a better chance of winning.

* Less expensive items usually generate fewer bidders and are therefore the best opportunities for you to win.

* Use the Auto-Bidder with care. It can be an effective and powerful tool for winning auctions but could backfire on you, so be sure you employ a sound plan when using it.

* Timing is the key to winning Pricebenders Auctions!

Make Your TConnect = More Sign-ups 



As you may have already heard, SFI recently launched its Member TConnect Websites. All SFI affiliates are also TC members, so every affiliate has a TConnect page. You can check out yours at:

http://my.tripleclicks.com/XXXXX
(XXXXX = your SFI ID number)

Note: Once you have the page up, log in to get administrative access.

Your next step, then, should be to put your TConnect page to work building your SFI business. One way to do this would be to use your member profile text to talk about SFI. Here's a sample of some profile text you can use (just make sure you put in your actual SFI rank and replace the "XXXXX" with your SFI ID number):

I'm an Executive Affiliate with SFI. Since SFI launched in 1998, it has been showing people all over the world how to build profitable Internet businesses from the comfort of their homes. In fact, the system is so successful that thousands now join SFI every week! If you've ever wanted to be your own boss or even just earn a little extra spending cash...I'd love to work with you. Note that SFI provides everything you need to get started FREE! Join my SFI team at: www.sfi4.com/XXXXX/real

Also, be sure to have your photo in place to personalize your page!

Here are some ways your "about SFI" profile can generate extra sign-ups for you:

* When you refer people (e.g. via Facebook) to the stuff you're selling

* When you bid on and/or win Pricebenders auctions and the thousands of people who watch the auctions and/or view the winners page click on your name.

* When someone uses a search engine and searches on words in your page (example: someone looking for a home business in your city--both of these appear on your TConnect page)

* When shoppers at TC click on the link to learn more about the member who is selling products they are browsing (link to be added to all product detail pages soon).

* When people click on the member names in the "Members I connect with" and/or the "Members who connect with me" sections on any Member TConnect Website. Hint: This is one of the reasons for connecting with other members--so that the link to your TConnect Website is on lots of other people's TConnect pages.

In the near future we'll also be coming out with a method that will allow you to display cool, new SFI, EyeEarn, and/or TripleClicks banners (and perhaps a "Join My SFI Team" button, too) on your TConnect page. Stay tuned for these coming announcements.

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: Don't miss the red flags! 

Keep an eye on your Genealogy for red "<500" flags. Affiliates with this flag next to their information indicates they've generated less than 500 VersaPoints in the last 90 days and are in jeopardy of having their SFI affiliateship canceled at the end of the current month.

Although SFI starts to send notifications about the red flag status to these affiliates beginning on the 15th of each month, there's no substitute for PRO-ACTIVE, personal contact by you, their SFI Sponsor!

Here's a sample letter you could edit and use:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Tom,

My Genealogy is indicating that you have less than 500 VersaPoints in the last 60 days. This is less than SFI's Minimum Activity Requirement, so your SFI affiliateship could be canceled at the end of this month.

You are an important member of my team and I'd really hate to lose you! So how can I help? Are there questions I can answer for you? Is there anything I can assist you with?

I'm extremely excited about what SFI is doing. With its new E-Commerce Associates program, for example, the SFI opportunity has just taken a huge leap forward. I'm going to be very active with SFI personally and I would really like to be able to work with you as a key member of my team.

Please drop me a quick e-mail and let me know what I can do to help you get the points you need before the end of the month.

Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you.

Your Name
Your contact information

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Marketing outside the box 

Sponsoring affiliates, referring TripleClicks members, and driving duplication in your team are key to creating big incomes at SFI.  But don't forget that you can also add to your income in these two ways:

1. Sell stuff around your house you don't need for extra cash. You can even list your first 50 items on TripleClicks free! After completing the SFI LaunchPad series, you'll have 50 complementary TCredits, which you can use to post listings of your items at the store.

2. Consider becoming an ECA and setting up a TConnect store at TripleClicks. Then just promote your ECA Gateway to your online customers. If you need ideas on items you can sell, see this article

Use TC banners to attract new customers 

Thanks to our new ECA program, thousands of new products are constantly flowing into TripleClicks. With the store growing stronger every day, there's never been a better time to get the word out about the deals, products, and services at TC.

To help you promote TC, several banners designed to market the store to bargain hunters and online consumers around the world are now available.

To use the new banners, just log in to the SFI Affiliate Center, go to the "Banners For Referring TripleClicks Members" page in the Member Referral Aids section, and click "TC general ad banners." Follow the easy directions to install the banner on your site or blog.

By the way, if you haven't already installed a TC banner on your site, you can earn 100 VP for installing a TripleClicks banner on your Website or blog. See the VP Scoreboard for details.

Business building tip 



Experts and successful entrepreneurs agree: a big part of success is in the follow-up. Don't let your initial marketing efforts go to waste. Make an effort to follow up with your PSAs who have not yet confirmed their registration and procured full access to SFI.

At least twice a week, stop by and check your Non-Confirmed PSA Report report. Look for any new names and contact each PSA, advising him or her to log in to the SFI Affiliate Center. They will then see an alert with a link to have a confirmation e-mail re-sent to them--and YOU will add another confirmed affiliate to your team!

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.
