Are You Just Playing Games? in Eager Zebra #Eager Zebra #Marketing

24 minutes ago

More than 1.2 billion people are playing games worldwide, according to a state of the industry report by Spil Games.


Of those, about 700 million play online games. That amounts to 44 percent of the world’s online population, according to comScore data cited by Spil Games.


“Gaming is a huge part of people’s online activities. It’s really mainstream, crossing age and gender boundaries.”





Gery Carson knew that the online gaming business was growing by leaps and bounds and began to incorporate these games as a way for affiliates to earn money.


The amazing thing seems to be that the affiliates are more interested in PLAYING instead of PROMOTING! I get it! I like playing too! But let's get real honest here and evaluate our efforts.


What grade do you give yourself on playing games?
What grade do you give yourself on promoting games?


I have to give myself an A on playing and a D on promoting! That's pretty bad! 700 million playing games online and I am neglecting them to my detriment! How about you?

Okay, Tommie. If it was PURCHASED someone had to PAY for it! I give up! I don't want to take away from the pain point of the thread.

This is a great opportunity to BUY PSA's at a great PRICE!

Purchasing anything renders it PAID. If you buy an ad, it is PAID. If you PURCHASE results of others advertising it is still PAID.

No, that was not my intent. Tommie has been so hard-core free advertising only that I want him to clarify his stance. It's fine with me for everyone to use what advertising they want.

Tommie does say in another thread:
However, there are numerous ways to expose SFI to others:
- Free Advertising (My Favorite)
- Paid Advertising (Outside of SFI)
- PSAs To Go
- Builder Bundle (Great benefits)
- S-Builder Co-op

So, I'm thinking Tommie is okay with paid advertising.

This in no way was intended as an attack on Tommie, who I consider a friend.

Avoiding Distractions in Marketing #Getting Started #Leadership #Team Building

6 hours ago

Many Leaders here (many high ranking) have outside interests and don't consider it a "distraction". The important thing is that those operating other opportunities not use SFI communications in any manner to solicit.

Without doubt too many "irons in the fire" will probably render all useless so one is most likely better off keeping those pursuits to a minimum.

18. Affiliate is strictly prohibited from soliciting SFI affiliates for other business opportunities. Although SFI takes no issue with affiliates being involved with other business opportunities outside of SFI, affiliates may not use any SFI resource or tool (i.e. TeamMail, TeamTalk, PSA Mailer, CSA Mailer, My Best Tips, etc.) to promote these other business opportunities or for-profit endeavors to other affiliates.

So, the one that makes a big deal out of, "Gold Team Leader (Not Pending) That Used Only Free Advertising..." is now advocating paid advertising?

I'm good with both ways. Thought you were not.

What is your motivation? in Team Building #Compensation #Team Building

19 hours ago

In an Article entitled, "Difference Between Optimists, Pessimists, and Realists" , Michael (no last name given) enlightens us in the often confused understanding of the words, Pessimist, Optimist, and Realist. He says:

A pessimist is often viewed as a negative person, but in reality this isn’t the case. Most people confuse pessimism with fatalism which is the root of this misconception. By definition a pessimistic person is usually a skeptic or doubter, someone who needs proof before they jump on board. Whenever they hear something new, they are the first to scrutinize it before they will accept it. Can be frustrating to some (especially optimists), but often they are the ones that facilitate the level of quality and change. Investigators and scientific people often represent this group.



Optimists are often touted as the best way to be and are usually shown to be well adjusted and happy. They tend to look on the more favorable side of life and events expecting the most favorable outcome. Their outlook hinges on idealism and often overlooks the basic nature of people. Because of their upbeat mindset, they are often the most likely to be gullible and naive. They are the kind of people politicians like because they can be easily persuaded.


Which leave the realist. A realist is someone who tends to view or present things as they really are at this moment in time. They normally don’t worry about what was (even though they are aware) and also don’t dwell on what could be. They work and live in the moment, what is currently at hand. Even stranger is pessimists view them as optimists, and optimists often view them as pessimists.


We need to be careful about labeling people and using wrongly defined words. Each of these groups of people can have an overall positive mindset. It's all about how easily we swallow what we are given!

If you look at the banner code

<a href='https://www.sfi4.com/XXXXXXXX/ngrq'><img src='http://sfimg.csidn.com/SFIBanners/banner657.jpg' border='0'></a>

You can separate like:

sfimg.csidn.com/SFIBanners/banner657.jpg - (Link to banner image)

*Obviously YOUR affiliate ID goes where the X's are in the business link.

Great point for those that didn't know about bulk mailing, Captain! The added value is that people will be receiving the opportunity by someone local. It gives an added sense of trust.

As I'm sure you know Gery cannot possibly read every post because of his busy schedule. I suggest to anyone with a specific question for Gery to go to the "Ask Gery" Index and post your question.

Commissions are generated by Sales. It would not make sense for SFI to PAY a commission on anything free. Remember, a commission is a portion of the PROFIT.
