Notify your affiliates of all the important and exciting SFI announcements by using Stream, eCards, team messages, chat and email.

Encourage your team to do what you are doing:

- Subscribe to the SFI news, especially if they are Team Leaders or want to be.

-Read their Alerts Page every day when they log in to do their Daily Tasks etc. The SFI news and more will be there.

-Read the Weekly SFI news, posts from Gery Carson, Forum posts (especially must-reads)

One way is to send out team mails at least weekly pointing out the new announcements and the key highlights of the announcement.

A second way is to offer an incentive to your team members for answering a simple question regarding the new announcement.

A third way is to point out to your team how you benefited from the announcement and how they too can benefit.

I am sure there are many more, but those are my top 3 ways.

There is no problem with having your affiliates read SFI announcements, if they love to read. However, not all affiliates love to read. In fact, majority of them don’t want or don’t have the time to read or get easily overwhelmed with too much stuff to read.

What you can do is to rewrite the announcement in a concise and simple manner and send the info through team mails, E-cards, and stream posts.

Maybe you can think of a reward system, if they act positively on any SFI

Hi John,

This is a good question and there are generally 2 types of affiliates that are under your team. One is who logs in daily to their account religiously without giving it a miss and doing necessary tasks and another is who logs in occasionally or has not logged in after joining SFI and are not generally interested in this business.

For the first type of affiliates who logs in daily, you can assume that they will be reading the announcements that they see in their ALERTS

When I first saw this question my first thinking was that there is no need to ensure that my team reads all the exciting and important SFI announcements. As when they just do what I do, do their daily tasks every day, they would just see everything themselves. And an active SFI member taking SFI serious would just do that, wouldn't he or she?

My second thought was that my sponsor pointed me to some things I didn't see yet, like the Designated Diamond program and the Fast Track Extension

I use my weekly letters to my team - I make sure that I include the link to the latest newsletters. I try to peak their curiosity so that they will want to go and read the rest of the news.

I made them aware that reading the newsletters they have the chance to play Spin n Win at least once and up to three times a month. If they miss that part because they did not read the newsletter, they lost a price that could've been theirs. I tell them I won 5 or 10 VP (or whatever quantity)

It's a good question, you know the old saying "you can bring a horse to the water troue, but you can't force it to drink,no matter what you do (RWON )" but like the horse, and relating to humans,at some time in the day both will do what is necessary to survive.
You know my friend patients is the answer.
I constantly , everyday, without fail send all my people active or not, and in the course of the day, believe it or not I have gotten over 10 people to become active again.

You can not ensure that other people do things as one understands and knows.

It should try to provide them as briefly as possible the basic information to focus on your work, not to confuse them more. Keep in mind that SFI directly provides this information and when one does not know the operation of SFI, rather is lost, even after some time.

You can show them your specific information on your page NOTE manager individually, according to the characteristic affiliate and work
