SFI Rule for Success #1

Treat your business…like a business!

If you purchased a franchise, would you expect it to make money for you if you only worked it a few hours a week? Or if you didn’t get trained? Or if you only tried for a few months? Or if you didn’t follow the proven guidelines of the creators of the franchise?

 

Of course not! That’s ridiculous. SFI is no different. Success requires commitment.

 

Treat Business Like Business

 

I am continually amazed at how many people think that money will somehow magically fall from the sky without work, without plans, or without an earnest commitment. All these elements (and others you’ll read about in the following rules) MUST be present.
The fact is, anything worthwhile in life requires effort and commitment. If that were not true, we’d all be the perfect weight, we’d all have perfect relationships, and we’d all be highly educated. It’s the same thing with having your own business.

 

In short, if you treat your SFI business as a serious, full-time business, put in the effort and commit to its success, it will become a serious, full-time business.

“Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.”

-Peter F. Drucker

 

“You need to make a commitment, and once you make it, then life will give you some answers.”

-Les Brown

 

“There’s no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love. There is only a scarcity of resolve to make it happen.”

-Wayne Dyer

 

“There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either in or out. There’s no such thing as a life in-between.”

-Pat Riley

“Communication skill is not a very large factor to become a good sponsor. SFI provides so many tools by which you can make and improve your skills for communication
Welcome Letter to your PSAs & CSAsThere are so many sample welcome letter in SFI tools – choose one – make some addition, alternation, if necessary – put your name, designation (Sponsor/Co-Sponsor/Team Leader). Now save the final draft in a Word file carefully. So you needn’t make it again and again. While new member/s sign up – you can easily send your saved welcome letter to them through your genealogy or affiliates profile snapshot just to change the name of memberOther CommunicationGo to Ask Sc and search the question you require. There are so many topics on so many subjects. So you can easily find whichever you need. Copy and paste it in a Word file. In the above same way make some addition, alternation, if necessary and then save it finally first and send to your affiliates through Genealogy mail, Email, Team Mail etc

For Short Details of SFI & TripleClicks

Attend SFI Forum with a Note Book and Pen regularly. Click the necessary posts, read the opinions of different peoples. Note down which you think important

Easy Communication

To send an E-card, to write something short for your team members and send through your Stream Post, Chatting, write a short Team Mail – these are very easy. It doesn’t require any good or best skills. Anybody can utilize these tools for their Team Member/s

If you follow the above steps you can become a good Sponsor without skills for communication

Hope the above will satisfy you to improve your communication skills by which you may become an awesome Sponsor for your Team in near future ”

Another Affiliate answers:

“Obviously you need to improve the aspect of your communications skills which you think you are not good at.

If its because you cannot communicate very well verbally with others, you will need to identify why this is so and work hard at eliminating your deficiencies. In SFI, there is little requirement to verbally communicate with team members. All your work can be done via the internet and you do not have to ring them up and speak with them.

Written communication is a lot easier for most people because they can see and can check what they have written before it is sent out to the recipients. You can check you grammar, spelling, punctuation, format and the tone of your message.

If English is not your native tongue, you can use the online translators. Prepare your message in your native tongue and then translate it to English before sending it out. I would suggest that after translating it in English, translate it back to your language and see if it is the message that you want to convey. Translators are not perfect but they are a big help. Use the ‘language’ Forum.

Use all the communication tools that have been provided by SFI – team mails, streams, E-cards, messengers etc..

A tip:

Often its not what you actually type that affiliates respond to. I believe that what matters to the affiliates is the fact that you are communicating with them regularly, encouraging them, responding to their questions and answering them as best as you can. You don’t have to explain everything to them. Most of the answers to the questions are already contained in the SFI lessons and texts. Get to know where to find these and give the relevant links to your affiliates as required. They can read for themselves. Its also the best way for them to learn and for them to find answers for themselves.

Another tip:

Go to your genealogy report. Identify those with birthdays and anniversaries and send them congratulatory messages as necessary. I find most affiliates like these.

More tips:

Whenever one of your team members or yourself achieve a milestone such as rank, win a major prize etc.. sing their praises. Send out streams, mention these on your leadership page, mention them in you newsletters. Heap accolades on them and hopefully that will motivate others to do try harder.

Whenever you come across matters that your team should know about, let them know immediately. Eg, when Spin & Win is on, its always within a limited time frame. Don’t presume that your affiliates have seen it and will act on it. Send out messages to let them know about it and for them to act on them promptly. Its free VP and most affiliates appreciate the reminders.

As you can see, the secret is not the fact that you can speak and write fancifully. The secret is how you communicate with them. ”

For new affiliates without any marketing experience, what are the best ways to start marketing?

Category: Getting Started
Asked by Suresh Kumar R
An Affiliate Responds:

“Marketing is by definition is communicating the value of a product, service or brand to customers. So I say, we all have some degree of marketing experience. It’s just the same as telling your friends about a really cool restaurant with 5 star service. Your friends are going to pick up on your body language and the inflection in your voice to buy into the idea of visiting that restaurant. Most will ask is the food really expensive for the money or do you get your money’s worth. Of course you are going to tell them that the menu selection is awesome. The space is immaculate and the servers are top notch. You tell them it’s the kind of place that you would love to spend time with your family.

Hence, you are marketing for the restaurant without even knowing it! Apply this same principle to Strong Future International and Tripleclicks. Accentuate what you love about SFI/Tripleclicks. Tell your prospects why you use the service. In essence, word of mouth marketing is the cheapest and best form of advertising because you are able to sell value to people who know you and trust your opinions. Add enthusiasm to the body language and you can market everything under the sun to the right prospect at the right time. This is where anyone can start and the rest is up to you.”

How do I get my affiliates to understand the importance of grabbing the DAILY Action VP available to them?
Category: Duplication
Asked by Younssi Abdellatif
 An Affiliate gives Response:
“We can never make people do what they are not willing to do. We can however show the value to them. May I suggest the following illustration:Daily action is important because missed opportunities to earn daily VP can be costly. Let’s say that you are working toward EA. You feel you have a good handle on it, so you don’t log in for 10 days throughout the month. So you missed the opportunity to grab 130 VP. Then on the end of the month you wind up with 1450 VP. Will you make EA? No! To add insult to injury you only missed it by 50 VP.Team leaders get matching VP. So let’s say you are EA trying to qualify as BTL. Upon examination of your genealogy, you find you have 10 EA2s in your first 6 generations for a combined total of 15000 VP. That’s in addition to the VP that you’ve accrued throughout the month. You feel you got a handle on the situation and at the end of the month 2974 VP. Your child got sick so you missed 2 days logging in. That’s 26 VP that you could have collected for FREE! So now, not only do you not make BTL but you lose 15000 matching shares – ouch!

So what’s the point? Log in everyday and earn those FREE VP because each month 1000s find themselves in the pickle of missing their objective by just a few VP.”

—————————————-
Another Affiliate Responds:
“How many times affiliates at the Forum asked about ways to collect certain amount of the much needed AVPs to move up to the next rank? Missing one day of logging in could be a deciding factor in fulfilling your monthly AVP requirement for maintaining your EA/TL status or moving up to the next rank.VP is the metric used in calculating your monthly commission. Be an example yourself by logging in everyday grabbing the daily action VP. Your affiliates will most likely follow your lead.The daily action VP is an important part of your daily SFI business operation and shows the level of your commitment through your daily log in. It has an impact on the following:- Your SFI Rank- VP Leaderboard

- Overall Power Rank/Country Rank

- VP Streak/All-Time-VP Streak

You need to emphasize to them the value of grabbing the daily action VP going through each section, not just clicking the blue buttons. Each section contains important information such as the latest threads on the forum, tips in growing SFI/TC income, vast collections of solutions to business problems at Ask SC, and so on.

You need to show them that in a 30 day month, they will accumulate approximately 480 AVP, which is almost one third of the 1500 VP requirement to achieve EA status. They can qualify for shares of the TC Executive Pool by collecting the remaining 1020 VP through TC sales.

You need to let them know that performing the daily Action VP reflects the level of commitment in growing their SFI business and without commitment there is no success.

If they understand and follow these habits (logging in daily) which form a very important part of their daily SFI business activity then duplication process will start to unfold in your organization.

Through your badge your affiliate will see an impression about you, showing your current total number of times of logging into your SFI homepage.

For example, the Daily VP Streak badge is based on the number of consecutive days that you’ve been collecting 10 VP or more, if you’ve been collecting 10 VP or more everyday for the whole year, you’ll be displaying a badge of “365-DAY VP STREAK” enclosed with a gold trim and at the same time a badge of “365-Day All-Time VP Streak” enclosed with a bronze trim. This will look very impressive on your SFI homepage, Leadership page, Affiliate snapshot and your JMT Gateway.

Your affiliates would want the same badge that you have and that’s how you can get through your message to them emphasizing the importance of grabbing the daily action VP that’s available to them. ”

Another Affiliate gives a Response:

“Someone had asked this question recently. I’m going to tell you the same thing I told this person.

It’s the little things that add up to create big things. Those Daily Action VP are like pieces of a puzzle. You constantly have to put those pieces together to solve that puzzle; otherwise, you miss out on a great opportunity.

So, if your affiliates skip out on scoring those daily VersaPoints, they’ll have missed out on becoming Executive Affiliate and so on, and earning commissions. Even I try to emphasize this concept to my affiliates.

Of course, there are going to be some members who sign up for the heck of it and “drop dead,” meaning they become inactive. Don’t let any of your affiliates miss out on scoring those daily VP, or else they’ll be kicking themselves in the butt.”

How can a disabled person with no marketing skills build a successful business with SFI?

 

How can a disabled person with no marketing skills build a successful business with SFI?

From Ask SC:

“When I started looking for an On-line home operated business back in 2012 it was because I was disabled and not capable of working a regular 9 to 5 job anymore and it did not matter that I had zilch experience with marketing skills. Without going into reasons for my disability – I need to also state that my wife is physically impaired so I must spend a lot of time tending to her.
That is what makes SFI and TripleClicks Internet Marketing Company the best thing in my life right now. Despite any disabilities or handicaps I can work my home business just as good as a person who is in perfect health and shape. In fact my disability is an added plus! I can devote more time to working on my business.
Also my disability will be (and is) a testimony in action as to earning a great income even better than someone in a 9 to 5 Just Over Broke – job. If you can read and poke buttons on your computer or smart phone then you can be a great leader and inspiration to your team.
Don’t let your disability be a hindrance to your success, rise above any physical impairment and prove to the world you are someone who is determined to achieve your dreams no matter how long it takes.
By the way – many SFI and TripleClicks affiliates have a mind-set that is more of a hindrance to them then the real disabilities that some of us may have. Success comes to them who are persistent and determined to win – it does not depend on whether you are disabled or not.” SFI is FREE To Join!
 There are no required monthly charges.  However to create a viable Business it does require paying daily attintion to Business.  To really be successful in Business one must invest in the business:  Advertising, Promoting, learning the Business.
SFI is so different than so many “so called opportunities” . The Business Training is Free at SFI, so unheard of in so many “opportunities”.
 I love SFI, which is a great way to create a Residual Income.  With any Successful Business products must be sold, goods must exchange hands.  SFI ( Strong Future International )  is a solid International Business with a real future supported by the Better Business Bureau.
 This is a solid 17 + year in Business Company with Affiliates/ Members  in 203 countries.  90,000 products
. SFI is a great home business, that can be run from any place you have an Internet connection and a computing device.  This is great for FREEDOM!

Another person answers:

“I myself am disabled, I am mainly wheelchair bound and often bed bound among other illnesses.
I can work SFI from my bed, it makes me feel useful and even though some think it is a waste of time, others back me up because I am determined not to let my disabilities get in my way.
I can choose what is the best time for me to log in daily, I am learning a great amount daily which boosters my self confidence.

In actual fact, when a disabled affiliate succeeds in SFI the testimony will be stronger for those who are not disabled.
I want to prove to my family and friends, some who are also disabled, that we often use our disabilities as an excuse that we cannot achieve much in life. But the truth is, if we changed our way of thinking we can achieve much, others have succeeded then so can we.

I want my children to learn there is another way to live than just spending most of the lives working hard and have little time with their families…
So that gives me an extra booster to succeed with this Business.
Everyone has good and bad days whether disabled or not.

I would love to see more disabled people, succeed in SFI, with determination and confidence and believing in themselves.

So by all means, get the disabled involved in SFI it will do them good. ”

Someone else inputs:
“Being disabled does not make a person incompetent. With modern technology it also opens many doors for disabled people.A blind person can do this – if they have a computer that is manufactured or adjusted to cater for them. I am not an expert in this technology, but from what I understand the key board has braille on it and text is translated to audio

Deaf people can use the computer like you and me – it is just with things like videos that they need text or sign language.

People in Wheelchairs, bedridden persons, any person with a disability can make a success with SFI if they have the correct equipment and the same attitude all of us need to succeed with SFI.
The only disability I can imagine will prevent a person from working in SFI would be a person with severe brain injuries.

I know several individuals with disabilities that I admire and respect because they refuse to let their disability stop them from doing what they want to do. They actually put me to shame – I can not say how I will react in their shoes – but if I had half the drive they have I will be proud of myself.

I think if a disabled person signs up they have the equipment they need – your role is to help them. It won’t hurt if you ask them how they function and to find out how you can help them to succeed. In many cases they won’t need you to adjust the way you do things.”

There are Many Network Marketing Businesses

There are many MLM, Network Marketing, Online Home Business and Internet Businesses as well as Organizations. I have worked quite a few and did a lot to get ahead but all in vain.
I learned many things which I am proud of today because I will never repeat the same mistakes again. I wanted a way to build a residual income from home or from anyplace in the world. I knew I would need to have an Internet connection, and a computer.  One Organization I found was PIPS,  Plug In Profit Site. It led me to others such as SFI to Grow a second income . and GVO to eliminate MLM failure online.  One of the programs I got in for awhile was Success University, it looked good for awhile but turned out bad, and is no longer around, like so many, here today and gone tomorrow, so called “Internet Businesses”.

There is a parable which says, “if you have a bag of keys and only one door to open, you will try all those keys until you get the right one, once you are in the house, you will never try the rest of the keys” -unknown- This is what I do now.

A business person  was trying to convince me to join her MLM business. I told her I have one already. She told me they have many products. I told her we do too. She asked me to take 30 minutes to watch a webinar which she would send me. I told her that my time is very important and if I  spend some time for her business concept, first she should tell me  about her organization. I asked her the following:

  • How old is your company and how successful is it?
  •  Is it international and with different languages?
  • Does the Organisation take care of its members?
  •  Are the members in that organization friendly and support each other?
  • Does your Organization give free Tools and Education on how to become successful from home or does one have to pay for expensive seminars to learn something?
  •  Does your Organization gives it´s members support 24 hours a day and through out the year?
  • Does your Organization advertise for you?
  •   Does your Organization provide free Gateways which can be used for advertising?
  •  Does your Organization have a system to follow or is it only buying the products?
  •  Does your Organization provide a Portal where every member can sell their products?
  • Can one build a successful Team in your Organization?
  •  Does one have to pay monthly/yearly or one time fee to join the Organization or it is free?
  •  Does one have to buy products to join, be and to stay in that Organization?
  •  Does one have to pay a fee to advertise the organization products, or so called resell fee?
  • Do members in that Organization promote each others products and with provisions?
  •  Is your Organization honest?
  • Does the Leader of the Organization ever take time to communicate with his/her members?

After this, she told me every member has to pay a fee to join the organization. Then I told her, thanks, you don’t need to send me more information because I have been in many internet marketing businesses but now I found the best, SFI first with Entrepreneurs, and that is where I want to stay, spend my time, money and energy to build a strong successful Team. Then I asked her if she wants to join me, and she asked me to send her my Link which I did.

I like SFI, It has been around for 17 Years.  It has a good track record.  It is probably the fastest growing internet business in the world. Around 3000 people from over 120 countries in the world join each day.  Then there is Triple Clicks with so many values.
