SFI now in its 18th year!

SFI News

We are now officially in our 18th year!  From but a small acorn 18 years ago, SFI has grown into a tall and mighty oak tree, with strong and deep roots.  But you ain’t seen nothin’ yet…because we planted an entire FOREST…and it’s spreading across every country in the world.

SFI President & Founder Gery Carson remembers the day SFI was born:

Gery2009_125w“As an entrepreneur, there have been very few holidays where I haven’t worked at least a few hours, and this day in 1998 was no different.  I went into my home office that morning planning to spend a few casual hours–on nothing in particular.  It was a holiday after all and no one else on my staff at the time was working.

Important new SFI gateway

SFI News

screenshot_833With the big Signing Bonus announcement, it’s of course vital that this exciting new bonus is prominently promoted to all prospective affiliates.

To accommodate this, we are unveiling today an important, new, completely-redesigned SFI gateway:
(you’ll replace 21505 with your own SFI ID when advertising of course)

Key new features:

  • Fresh, modern look
  • Retooled ad copy to highlight the biggest and best reasons for becoming an SFI affiliate
  • Mobile-friendly (page adjusts for any screen size)
  • New, simpler built-in registration form (requires only name, email, country, and password to get started)
  • The old, clunky Captcha has been replaced with a slick, fast, and new security check that helps ensure no autobot can register an account
  • An income disclaimer and no-spam policy have been added (required by many ISPs, search engines, and advertising programs)

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Because it was not feasible to quickly alter every existing SFI gateway to include a promotion…

100_dollar_winner-01Effective immediately, we’ve added a very exciting new incentive for all new SFI affiliates: SIGNING BONUSES!

What’s a Signing Bonus (SB)?  Like the name suggests, it’s a bonus you now qualify for when you sign up with SFI.

All new affiliates will now immediately be eligible to earn $20 just for joining SFI!

The SB amount increases to $40 for those who qualify for Fast-Track Silver.  And for those who qualify for Fast-Track GOLD, the SB increases to $100!

Signing Bonuses will be paid out with regular commissions–paid as a percentage (3%) of your regular commission earnings for a maximum of 18 months.

Example: Your regular commissions for the month are $400.  Hence, $12 (3% of $400) of your SB would be added, for a total earnings of $412.  Each month, you’ll receive a portion of your total SB until it is fully* paid.

*Any remaining SB balance…

Team-BuildingBeing a Team Leader in SFI is of course supposed to be focused on building and leading a TEAM. And, in fact, these activities–DUPLICATION–are absolutely crucial to the success of the SFI system. Over the last several months, however, we have seen this vital element given less and less attention by both new and old Team Leaders.

To reverse this trend, we are adding a new Team Leader qualification, which will become effective as of January 2016 (qualifications met by midnight, January 31, 2016).

Here are the Team Leader requirements as of January (the new requirement shown in red):

Bronze Team Leader (BTL)

  • Minimum 3,000 VersaPoints (1,500 min/2,000 max from sales/purchases)
  • Minimum (1) first-level EA2
  • Maintain Leadership Page
  • Minimum 3-star sponsor rating from PSAs (not required if you receive less than 5 ratings)

Silver Team Leader (STL)

  • Minimum 4,000 VersaPoints (1,500 min/2,500 max from sales/purchases)
  • Minimum (2) first-level BTLs
  • Maintain Leadership Page
  • Minimum 3-star sponsor…
