I want to be a good co-sponsor to my CSAs...but I don't want to overstep boundaries on those who have a great sponsor. How do I fill my role appropriately?

I really value my CSAs. In fact I have strived to be a team leader each month I have been in SFI so that I can get a share of the “second home CSAs”. And now, with the “CSA rewards program” I can earn even more FREE CSAs each month (last month I earned another 17 CSAs in this way.) So I have more CSAs than PSAs and more

One of the first things you can do when you receive a new CSA is check their sponsor and have a look at his or her badges. This helps give you a bit of an idea about how active the sponsor may be. Obviously this is not fool proof by any means because the badges don’t tell you how active someone may be outside of SFI's communication systems.

For instance, a seemingly inactive sponsor may be communicating with their team via social media, personal emails and so on. They may also be

To be honest I am not sure that there is a boundary to cross.

Neither role can direct an affiliate. Both offer guidance and support. What an affiliate does with that is up to them. So in that role there is no risk of conflict.

I am fortunate enough to have both an excellent sponsor and an excellent co-sponsor. Both support me and provide plenty of information and encouragement.

From my co-sponsor I get frequent communications, inspirational messages through her Stream

SFI has made incentives and designed the SFI programme in such a way that once you are an EA, you automatically are qualified to receive 2 CSA. As their CSAs, you are given 15% CV on their purchases.

As their CSA, we need to encourage , motivate and acknowledge them when ever they are in need.

I have my own experience whereby my Co Sponsor was the active one when i joined SFI. During that period, I was taught the importance of reading good SFI marketing manuals, what t currency

First of all, we do not know whether our CSAs have great sponsors or not.

All we can find out from the available Data through Genealogy, Movers, etc is whether the CSAs in our Team are active and performing or not.

Based on that every Co-Sponsor is needed to act, support and work together with them in order to make them stronger in terms of their daily activities, performance, achievements, and earning an income regularly.

As Co-Sponsors, we do earn based

Dear Tatjana,

There isn't any difference on approaching we must have on our CSAs support! Co-sponsored Affiliates by their team membership justifies same attention in functional assistance we need to improve for PSAs! Both are our team members and SFI Affiliates! With equivalent goals and needs!

Casually being our CSAs, as well as we are for our own Co-Sponsors, co-sponsored fellows are important on our business success. A time they have powerful Sponsors, they could have powerful

Although your CSA has a great sponsor, you can be a great Co-sponsor.

Follow the instructions for Co-sponsors.

Do not overwhelm them with unnecessary information. Remember that they will be receiving newsletters from a sponsor and from SFI.

Remember they have a great sponsor who has a role, so treat them as business partners, not as children who need to be trained. Send them newsletters just as you would your PSA's.

When there is a major important

SFI is one the only on-line marketing company that I know of which freely gives their affiliates CSAs (Co-Sponsored Affiliates). Receiving affiliates that you did not sponsor nor were they “spill over” from your sponsor.

The overriding commissions you earn from these gifted CSA is a whopping 15% of the commission value in the purchases or sales they make. I know 15% doesn’t sound like much but when you add up sales from a few hundred CSAs the income potential is very

Co-sponsor is a role that is very important as a sponsor. You do exactly what you do for your PSAs to your CSA. You are not over stepping any boundary in carrying out your legitimate role. As long as you are acting within the SFI rules of engagement, you are fine.

Remember that the CSA is also your responsibility to teach and assist in growing his/her SFI business. Your input is important to their growth. If you know their sponsor and think the sponsor is awesome, that's your opinion.

If your CSA's already have a great sponsor, chances are they will never ask you for help, because they are getting all the help they need. But you have no way of knowing that for sure (unless they tell you).

Just make sure they know you are there if needed, and keep in touch through a weekly newsletter, touching on new developments, and include a brief motivational message if you can. That way you are giving them a different perspective, and a lifeline in case they don't get the help they
