Great opportunity... in Suggestion Box

1 day ago

Hi Randy, It might have changed, but it's my understanding that S-Builder comes from Corporate's own advertising, and I assume this would mean Builder Bundle as well, unless Builder Bundle is from PSAs-To-Go which are from a qualified source who is an affiliate as well the other PSAs sold on TripleClicks are from different leaders here. I welcome any corrections.

It looks good, Gyanendra. Concerning product delivery, where appropriate I would mention that the most common product, TCredits, is digital and highly commissionable.

By the way, how is it going over the in the GF? Any clif notes? Much going on since the recent overrides move? I would think that would calm things down concerning the comp plan. They may need to let other TLs in to rile things up.

Addressing the injustice of Denial of DD Status in Suggestion Box #Leadership #Sponsor #Team Building

13 days ago

If you cannot be a DD because of the various reasons, you can basically do what Opti-Build does with the co-op manager as well. Opti-Build is a luxury that is not absolutely necessary for you to team build. DD only means that you are in Opti-Build. Not a major obstacle.

I Feel Left Out In The General and Gold Forum... in Marketing #Getting Started #Marketing #Team Building

It appeared largely because of interaction with leaders and corporate that this recent change came about. www.sfimg.com/forum/thread?id=137263

To report that many TLs were downgrading to EA to take advantage of overrides is not just an unproductive complaint. This kind of interaction is crucial.

GOOD STEP-New Gold Forum for brainstorming debuts. in Team Building #Compensation #Leadership #Team Building

14 days ago

There should be no concern about the GF. Where leaders express opinions concerning changes to the compensation plan, it is appropriate that there is a space to do it not visible to the public or new people so as to not create confusion. Although I wish other TLs could access the dialogue, it's understandable and good move forward.

Bitcoin and Bitcoin cash in Ask Gery #Rewardical

I hope, if we add a cryptocurrency for reduced transaction fees, that we choose another like Litecoin or Digibyte, not Bitcoin Cash, which is tainted with controversy.

Can you come back from a bad review in Team Building #Getting Started #Leadership #Team Building

about 1 month ago

The rating a person gives, in my opinion, is a reflection of their own level of positive attitude and generosity, and whether they are the right kind of person to keep in mind as someone you can work with long term. If you are supportive with a positive attitude, there will be people who appreciate that with good ratings.

Any good at sales ? in Marketing #Marketing #Sales

about 1 month ago

Hi Shawna,
Many exchanges and mailers will offer login ads which users see when they login to their account. Considering the credits or cost of login ads, I personally haven't seen as much benefit from those as regular text ads which provide a larger number of impressions for the credits. It depends on the certain program as well. The only way to see what works for you is to test a lot, and a/b split test which is to use two or more ads in the same ad service, tracking with keycodes, and when one is seen to perform better, modify the lesser one, and in that way optimize the ad response.

Astro Auction as a COOP? in Ask Gery #Astro Auctions

3 months ago

Hi Roy,
I bet the coding for that is not in place, but if I were doing it, I would use a rotator for a PRM co-op. I used to use a free php script that has a nice little user interface, and you just add the urls:
www.sfi4.com/2345.12/Astro (if someone gets two shares you add the url twice, etc.)
There are third party hosted rotators out there as well. With a lot of orders it may be too much manual input, but it's something that could work. There would also be the issue of getting Adwords to accept a rotator url, which might lean toward hosting your own.

My custom domain can't link to the gateway in Miscellaneous #Marketing

3 months ago

Hi Friedrich, See Stephen's post above. If you have your own domain you need to manage DNS or use a forwarder to a gateway. SFI's prestige custom domains take care of this internally; we just need to pick the domain name, gateway and keycode.

My custom domain can't link to the gateway in Miscellaneous #Marketing

To clarify, if it's a prestige custom domain hosted here by SFI, there is no need for DNS management. If the domain is set up in the gateway manager, it is ready to use.
