As an ECA they can charge any price they think will sell product, cover cost, and provide them the profits they desire.

What they need warned of is:

1. Low end commissions make it less attractive for SFI Affiliates to promote their products and services.

2. Prices that are too high though will not sell as often because people online are pretty good at checking more than one price before deciding to buy anything.

3. Settling for less profit per item may

SFI has 16+ years of integrity, longevity, and success and is getting better all the time.

When looking at an investment you look for potential gains and time to fruition and the SFI Business Model can help you achieve a reasonable Return On Investment or ROI in as little as a few short months. Many of us are in profits within 30-60 days of investing in ourselves which is the truth of where your investment is placed.

How you and your team get started will dictate much of your success.

When a new member joins they are typically low to moderate income and in need of making added money to pay bills, or cut out that second job or third job so they can spend time with family. Many like me are disabled and can not work outside the home. In my case it's Bi-Polar Depression with severe social anxiety in addition to a pinched nerve in my neck.

It's not difficult when you look at the industry and compare SFI to what happens elsewhere.

With other companies more of the details are listed on the outside of the site. There are often newsletters and free reports you can sign up for to get more information before joining etc.. SFI however you have to actually join the program to get access to the same types of information so we actually convert more total sign ups than you do with other programs because they join as a lead and are

Give your visitors what they want which is information.

Visitors to your website or blog don't want advertisements. They want great content and informative post and they don't mind ads around it but if the site reads as an ad they will just click away as fast as they arrived.

Have a means or multiple means like a Newsletter and Social Media connects to capture leads and follow up with them. Keep spoon feeding them more and more information until they trust you and are willing

Pay Per Click advertising can be very expensive if you don't have the right tools and knowledge.

You have to constantly keep your eye on ROI or Return on Investment, and know how to laser target your prospects. You want people ready to work and willing to invest in themselves so that you get a active return on what you spend in acquisition. You are not going to achieve that if you target terms like free home business, earn easy income, or make money in 30 minutes a day.

Step 1 is stop counting on your upline to grow your business.

It's really not healthy to put your upline on the hot seat for creating growth in your business. They wont promote for you, and very few will tell you actual places they promote because it will weaken their own results, and most of your upline is no more experienced than you are.

It's possible to have someone join at 10AM and recruit their first PSA at 10:15AM before they even complete their affiliate profile or do

Credit Card not required.

A Purchase is not required at all in SFI even to become a team leader.

Have them focus on learning to refer personally referred members to TripleClicks. This in turn will come back to them in sales commissions and when a PRM makes a purchase their referring affiliate gets the Sales Versa Points the order results in.

If your goal is to generate 1500VP monthly, promote the auctions and remind prospective members that the credit packages are

Yes you should have a Autoresponder and Capture Form for your blog.

I saw someone else wrongly advise against it saying it was against SFI rules and that's wrong. What they alluded to is giving a e-mail address to SFI that has a auto response message that it sends back. Those never get seen by humans and clog the mailing queue.

I personally offer a 4 day special report on getting started in Network Marketing where I give examples using SFI as our training model. After that first

Tell them a story they can relate to, usually your own.

Tell them why you decided to start a home business.

Tell them how you found SFI and why you joined the program.

Tell them about the training you received and how it has helped your business.

Tell them about small successes you have accomplished like I have 30 PSA and 180 total members in my team, or I have won the daily grand drawing 3 times and am a Finalist in E-365, currently ranked number 3 in
