It’s a fresh, new week! Check out some of SFI’s newest developments to help you reach new heights this week!

OPTI-BUILD UPDATE
We’re a little more than 20 days in…and Opti-Build is definitely heating up! Indeed, nearly 10,000 new affiliate sign-ups have already been awarded to affiliates participating in the new program!
If you’re not aware of our powerful new Opti-Build program, you can get all the details here:
and here:
Now, as you may realize, Opti-Build is a highly complex programming undertaking…and when it’s operating as part of a database as large and as active as SFI’s, it’s a real “beast!” Because of this, we’ve had to tweak a few things and eliminate a couple features that were proving to be unfeasible–things that could not be determined during our pre-launch, non-live testing.
Here are the changes:
1. If your sponsor is not a Designated Diamond (DD), you cannot receive Opti-Build spillover. HOWEVER, with the new Active Sponsor policy announced recently, you may be rolling up to a NEW sponsor soon that WILL allow you to benefit from Opti-Build upline spillover. And be sure to carefully digest the Q&As in the full news post on our blog, which explains how Opti-Build can still be highly beneficial for you even without the “icing on the cake” of an active upline. Remember, as always, “If it’s to be, it’s up to me!”
2. In our original announcement, we stated that once you reached the rank of PTL (Platinum Team Leader), participation in Opti-Build was no longer allowed. PTLs can now fully participate…until they attain the rank of DTL (Diamond Team Leader).
3. If you’re not a Desginated Diamond, you cannot participate in Opti-Build to have your sign-ups automatically flow into the Opti-Build stream. However, you can still manually reassign all your sign-ups as needed, which can accomplish the exact same results, it’s just not automatic. See the Knowledge Base article at https://www.sfimg.com/Support/Solution?id=210256 to learn about how to do reassignments and why it’s a highly valuable strategy. And/or search on the keyword “reassignment” from the Affiliate Center’s search engine.
One more thing…
We are continuing to refine some of the automatic reassignment algorithm code. Reassignments starting in May should be “smoother” and more consistent. We appreciate your patience as we make these refinements!

NEW “ROUND UP FOR CHARITY” PROGRAM
We’re very happy to unveil our new TripleClicks Round up for Charity program. Our new program lets you easily and painlessly support charities of your choice and help make a difference in the world! Another great reason to be a proud member of SFI!
Here’s how it works:
During the TripleClicks check-out process, just select the round up option to raise your TripleClicks purchase total by a few cents to the nearest dollar amount, and make a selection from among the charities listed. We’ll then collect 100% of the difference between your purchase amount and the rounded up total, and donate the accumulated totals each quarter to your chosen charity(ies).
Following are the 11 charities we are starting the program with. We have compiled this list of charities based on their international appeal, high ratings among charity watchdogs, and important causes.
CARE–A global humanitarian organization providing disaster relief to areas in crisis, while providing long-term solutions to poverty around the world.
Conservation International–Helping to build a healthier, more prosperous and more productive planet through science, policy, and partnerships with countries, communities and companies.
Doctors Without Borders–Delivering emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from health care.
Habitat for Humanity International–A global nonprofit housing organization working in approximately 70 countries around the world with the goal of providing all people with a decent place to live.
International Committee of the Red Cross–Helping people affected by conflict and armed violence and promoting the laws that protect victims of war.
International Rescue Committee (IRC)–Responding to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helping refugees and people to survive and rebuild their lives.
Make-A-Wish International–Granting wishes to children around the world who are living with life-threatening illnesses.
Rotary International–Business and professional leaders around the world working together to promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, support education, and strengthen communities worldwide.
The Nature Conservancy–Working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people.
Wildlife Conservation Network–Working to protect endangered species and preserve their natural habitats by supporting entrepreneurial conservationists and innovative strategies for people and wildlife to co-exist and thrive.
World Wildlife Fund–Working to conserve nature and reduce pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth through innovative solutions that meet the needs of people and nature.

ACHIEVING YOUR APRIL GOALS?
How are you doing on your monthly SFI goals? Did you collect your 5 VP for setting your goals for the month (before the 10th), along with 1 VP each day you review your Goals Tab?
MORE importantly: will you reach some (or all) of the goals you’ve set for this month?
If you’ve answered no or are not sure, take a moment right now to review your progress:
Then, stop by the Ask SC archive at the Affiliate Center and search for “goals” to read top answers to questions about setting and reaching goals in SFI and helping your downline to do the same. You’ll also want to check out the SFI Forum for more ideas, tips, and advice on setting goals that will help you succeed in SFI.

And get ready for May!
On May 1st, it will be time to set new monthly goals. If you set goals for April, use what you learned to set realistic May goals. The most important thing is to have goals and always strive to achieve them. Various studies PROVE that those who write down their goals accomplish significantly more than those who do not…and we want all of our affiliates to experience bountiful success!

YOUR AFFILIATE WEEKLY TIP
6 simple, easy ways to add Co-Sponsored Affiliates to your downline!
Co-Sponsored Affiliates (CSAs) are a great way to add value to your team and increase your profits–you earn 15% of the CV on each order one of your CSAs places at TripleClicks.com! Plus, if you’re a team leader, you’ll also earn Matching VP on all your CSAs. And that’s just the beginning of the team-building benefits your CSAs can add to your business.
So, how can you get CSAs? Easy!
You get at least TWO (2) CSAs each month you achieve the rank of Executive Affiliate (EA) or above. And it’s EASY to go EA.
1. The CSA Rewards Program gives you more than two dozen ways to get 30+ CSAs every month, including 10 CSAs you can get just by becoming Booster Club Qualified (BCQ). Learn more: https://www.sfimg.com/Support/Solution?id=224802

TEAM BUILDING TIP OF THE WEEK:
Get the MOST from TripleClicks PSAs To Go and Auction-won PSAs!
Maximize the value of your TripleClicks PSAs To Go or from PSAs you’ve won in a Pricebenders Auction: run them through your Co-op Manager!
Your participating affiliates will benefit with guaranteed PSAs added to their downline. YOU will benefit from motivated affiliates with expanding teams of new PSAs, whose activities could add long-term profits to your bottom line!
To funnel your PSAs To Go or Pricebenders Auction PSAs through the Co-op Manager, just go to the Start A New Co-op page at the SFI Affiliate Center and choose “Your Gateway Site” as the co-op source. Be SURE to enter 1104 in the keycode field. Click the Create A New Co-op button at the bottom when you’re done.
IMPORTANT! After purchasing your PSAs To Go or winning the PSAs auction, you’ve got a day or two before your new PSAs begin rolling in. Once they begin to arrive, it will be too late to run them through a new co-op. Therefore, be sure not to wait too long after winning your auction to set up your co-op!
For help and information about creating co-ops and using the Co-op Manager, see Co-op Manager FAQs at:
