As with all affiliate programs “slow and steady wins the race.” But having said that I realise that it only took me two days to become a Bronze Team Leader (BT) in SFI .
It’s fairly easy to become an Executive Affiliate (EA) when you follow the to-do list daily. In a certain way was SFI one of the first programs that offered a gamified experience. Follow and close all the lessens, do every task on the to-do list as often as you can and you’ll be an EA in no time.
But to gain from the full potential of SFI you’ll need to become a Team Leader. To become a Bronze Team Leader you’ll have to personally sponsor at least five affiliates (SFI calls them PSA’s).
Here are some tips to get from EA to BT:
1. Promote, promote and promote
As with every program to earn from affiliates you’ll need to promote as often where you can, everywhere you can. Don’t spam and don’t promote your direct affiliate link but use a squeeze page, in a future post I’ll go deeper into this subject.
2. You can buy PSA’s on TripleClicks
If the end of the month is approaching and you haven’t managed yet to get the right amount of PSA’s you can consider buying them on SFI’s own TripleClick system. There are several packages, for example here, here and here.
I got them delivered very fast when I bought a few and it certainly helped me progress faster.
3. Ask family and friends
You don’t just have to invite them to the affiliate side of things you can also send them personal links to items on TripleClick that they may like.
I hope that I gave some ideas here on how to progress faster in SFI. This certainly worked for me!
Three days in the program (again) and I’m a Broze Teamleader now
To become teamleader you need to sponsor at least five PSA (personal sponsored affiliate).
It wasmuch easier than I originally thought. The coming days I will post some tacticsto become a BTL asap
It only took me two days to become an Executive Afilliate.
When you follow the to-do list, absorb all the information available in the system you can’t go wrong.
But in the end “slow and steady wins the race. That’s why SFI gives two valuable suggestions:
“1. Clicking links contained in LaunchPad lessons will, in many cases, take you to pages in the SFI Affiliate Center. The Affiliate Center can be overwhelming for new members. If at any time you’re feeling overwhelmed, just click the button with the rocket on it–located at the top of the Affiliate Center–to return here to LaunchPad. Stay focused on your LaunchPad lessons until you’re ready to move on. But rest assured—all that stuff that looks overwhelming right now—is really just awesome tools and resources. Over time, everything will begin to make sense and you will be delighted that you have so many powerful tools to build your business with.
2. Do NOT try to learn everything about SFI in a few days or weeks. One of the main reasons SFI is so successful is because it has real substance—with more than 30 years behind it and literally tens of millions of dollars invested into building its system and infrastructure. Yes, you’re now part of a REAL business that you can earn a very large income with, but it will take time to fully absorb everything. And that’s alright, because anything worthwhile in life takes time. So relax and take your time. Learn a little bit every day. Soon, making money with SFI will become second nature for you. Getting started and taking daily action is the key.”
Eigth years ago, in 2010, I had this silly little idea of branding myself as the SFI-guy. That worked for about a year. I had a reasonable downline in the program but I didn’t know then what I know now.
My little website gathered dust and later expired. I thought SFI was a program from the past.
Now SFI is still going strong and in it’s twentieth year of operation. Still one of the largest and best affiliate sites ever. When a company excists that long it must do things right.
And 2018 is going to be a great year for SFI with the introduction of a new devision and more branding opportuities.
Now I know much more about online marketing. You may know me from GVO or one of my own programs (like traffic exchanges, TE-books.com). But I’m also back with my first love SFI and looking forward to help it grow in 2018.
