In my previous Home Business blog post, I covered the first of two ways that I have been building my affiliate income with the SFI Marketing Group. In that post, I wrote about the benefits of Co-Sponsored Affiliates.

Today, I will write about Personally Sponsored Affiliates (PSA). As the name indicates, these are affiliates that you personally recruit or sponsor into your SFI business.

There are several ways to attract, recruit and sponsor new members onto your SFI team, but I will highlight only two of them in this post. They are, one, purchasing guaranteed sign-ups from qualified suppliers, and two, winning PSAs in the Pricebenders auctions on the shopping site. … Read the rest of this entry

I am an active and enthusiastic member of the SFI Marketing Group, an affiliate marketing company that has been producing monthly Internet income for me over the past year. Here is the first of two ways that I am building my SFI marketing team.

This way came unexpectedly about a year ago when I was re-familiarizing myself with the SFI marketing and compensation plan. There were aspects of the plan that I did not understand and therefore ignored while I focused on more familiar aspects.

The term, “Co-Sponsored Affiliates” (CSA), was one of them. Training in the member’s area made regular reference to the value of CSAs, but I didn’t know what they were and I definitely did not recognize their value. However, my eyes were quickly opened after I received my first batch of CSAs! … Read the rest of this entry

Goal Attainment: The Truth Can Be Painful

In yesterday’s blog post, Goal-Setting with the New Psychology of Achievement, we left off asking what it is that is holding you back from success. Today, I will carry on with that idea, but be forewarned, this could be painful.

The unfortunate truth of the matter is you are totally responsible for your life and everything that happens to you, and if you are not making sufficient progress towards your goals, you have only yourself to answer to.

In other words, as Brian Tracy tells us in Session 5 of his excellent audio program on the New Psychology of Achievement, you must take personal responsibility for your future and you must look within for the roadblocks and bottlenecks that may be holding you back. … Read the rest of this entry

I just have to say this: audio programs from Brian Tracy International (BTI) are powerful! Yes, I am a BTI affiliate and I make money selling Brian’s programs; it’s no secret, I have openly stated that many times.

But I have also stated that I could also possibly be my own best customer! I own many of Brian’s audio programs and the fact remains that all of his personal development and self-improvement materials are powerful.

I just finished listening to Session 5 on goal-setting in The New Psychology of Achievement, a 6-CD or 6-MP3 audio program that has to be one of my favourites. I have the CD version. Here are a few highlights from Session 5: … Read the rest of this entry

Consider this: You buy products and services from businesses and merchants in your own community … AND you earn rewards online for doing so! Everybody wins: you, the merchant, and you again!

But how can this be possible, you ask? Good question. Let me tell you how it is done.

First, you become an affiliate with the SFI Marketing Group. It is free and there are no purchase requirements.

Second, you read up on our E-Commerce Associates (ECA) program where commercial sellers (merchants, businesses, etc.) can list their items for sale in our online store. … Read the rest of this entry

Social Networking for the Active Internet Marketer

Here is an excellent social networking community that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. It is called IM faceplate, it is free to join, and it offers a variety of ways for marketers to share and highlight their favourite money-making programs.

This social site has been around for a few years but for some reason it has not caught on the way some of the most well known social media sites have, and I don’t know why! Internet Marketers should be flocking to this site in droves. It is free to join.

The big advantage is that IM faceplate is designed specifically for Internet Marketers. It is not like other social sites that stifle your marketing enthusiasm or prohibit you from promoting your products, programs or services. … Read the rest of this entry

Network Marketing has advantages over traditional sales and marketing. When you build a marketing team, you can reach a wider and more diverse prospect base than you might on your own. You leverage your time and your resources.

Duplication is fundamental to Network Marketing success and creating duplication is your major challenge and primary purpose. It is your responsibility. You may have been sponsored into a particular Internet income opportunity by someone else, but your success within that opportunity rests on your shoulders.

You are the leader. You must set the example. You set the pace. You can look to your sponsor or to leaders ahead of you in the marketing plan for insight, inspiration and guidance, but you are responsible for learning the steps to success and for coaching your team members and creating duplication down through the ranks in your network. … Read the rest of this entry

Achieving Success on Purpose

GT Bulmer GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

Most people dream of achieving success in some area of their life, whether it is personal or business or whatever. Some people just seem to fall into it naturally. But most of us have to work at it purposefully!

What I mean is you’ve got to clearly know what you want, where you are going and how to get there before you embark on your journey, otherwise you will end up simply spinning your wheels in frustration.

Now, I know what most people think: they think that they DO know what they want, and where they are going, and how to get there. But when their efforts produce less than spectacular results, rather than analyzing the problem from an internal perspective, as they should, they try to place the blame for it externally. … Read the rest of this entry

I just received a brand new, still-in-package “The Dark Knight RisesBlu-ray movie from Pricebenders Penny Auctions and not only did they pay the shipping, but they also gave me $13.07 value in more bidding credits!

My cost to win the auction was just $1.43 total. In return, they gave me the movie (with free shipping) plus 50 bidding credits (worth at least $14.50). This kind of deal hasn’t happened to me often, but man, when it does, oh, what a feeling! Here’s the breakdown of what happened.

First, I am a member of, the site that hosts Pricebenders Penny Auctions, and I participate in the auctions regularly. In order to bid on the auctions, you need to buy bidding credits in advance. Bidding credits are called “TCredits” and they are used for a variety of things in addition to bidding on the auctions. … Read the rest of this entry
