a2a 2.0 

As an a2a member, you already know that a2a allows you to search, browse, and exchange messages with any SFI affiliate. You're also aware that a2a allows you to identify and befriend SFI affiliates in your own country, state/province, or city; or search by gender, age, join date, common goals, and more...or any combination, as well as create "best buddy" lists, brainstorm, share tips, discuss SFI news, and more.

With a2a 2.0, we've integrated this resource even more into SFI--with an a2a tab on your SFI homepage and 1 VP a day awarded to affiliates for visiting it. It also uses a2a members' real names and SFI account photos, so you know exactly who you're dealing with.

You can also access a2a via Affiliate Snapshots (the "mini-profile pages" you see when you click on an affiliate's name at the SFI Affiliate Center--such as the names on the various leaderboards). This makes it super easy to connect with fellow affiliates. When you open an Affiliate Snapshot, for example, you'll see an a2a "Friend Request" button. Just click this button and follow the simple directions to become friends with the affiliate. Note: The a2a button will not appear if the affiliate isn't an a2a member.

For more information on a2a 2.0 and answers to frequently asked questions, see this page.

Not yet an a2a 2.0 member? It only take a few seconds to get started:

To get started with a2a 2.0, everyone must register (even those who were previously members of a2a, version 1) from the new a2a tab on the Affiliate Center homepage.

Upon submitting your registration, you'll get 60 VersaPoints instantly. Plus, you'll also get a cool, a2a 2.0 badge for your homepage. NOTE: Due to privacy issues, the SFI system cannot maintain past relationships established in a2a version 1.0. However, you can get started fresh right now and begin befriending affiliates immediately.

Leadership Tool: Profile Scores 



Identify potential future stars in your affiliate team with Profile Scores!

Here's how it works: Our system reviews the responses your affiliates have given to questions on their Affiliate Profiles. We assign a point value to each response to help identify affiliates who have set high goals, committed to investing significant time or money into their new business, are experienced in network marketing or Internet marketing, and/or who have past leadership experience, and so on. These point values are all added altogether to create the affiliate's Profile Score.

These Profile Scores allow you to quickly get an idea of your affiliate's level of motivation and commitment, and maybe even an insight into the kind of affiliate this person is going to be.

That said, there are limitations to how much weight you should put on the Profile Score for any given affiliate. Keep in mind that the score is only a number based on Affiliate Profile responses. A high score does not guarantee a future Platinum Team Leader. Likewise, a low score doesn't necessarily indicate that an affiliate is going to go nowhere. High or low, ALL your affiliates should be greeted with enthusiasm and strong support!

You can find Profile Scores in the e-mail notifications you receive whenever one of your PSAs completes their Affiliate Profile. Also, you will soon be able to see Profile Scores on the Affiliate Manager and Genealogy.

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.

Haven't set up your LP yet? We strongly suggest you do this as soon as possible. Just click the small LP tag in the top right corner of the Affiliate Center to go right to your page at https://www.sfimg.com/Resources/LeadershipManager. You can also access your Leadership Page via the Hot Spots menu.

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.

Find your affiliates online! 

How can you find and communicate with your team members who are currently online at the SFI Affiliate Center? Just look for the "yellow SFIM bubbles"--on your Genealogy report, on the My Movers tab on your Affiliate Center homepage, on Affiliate Manager pages, and on your Upline Team page. 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.
