You Make It Too Complicated For New Affiliates. Can You Simplify It For Them?
We strongly encourage all affiliates to start at SFI BASICS here:
We recommend they focus on this page ONLY and not move on to other parts of the SFI Affiliate Center until they feel they fully understand these basics. We state this in their welcome letter, the first official message they receive from us.
Then, we have our LaunchPad "getting started" series: www.sfimg.com/LaunchPad. The first LaunchPad lesson arrives on the affiliate's second day and we send only one lesson a day going forward so no one has to digest too much information at once. Also, each lesson states at the top in RED:
1. Clicking links contained in LaunchPad lessons will, in most cases, take you to pages in the SFI Affiliate Center. The Affiliate Center can be overwhelming for some people. If at any time you're feeling overwhelmed, just click the blue "SFI BASICS" button above. Review the four actions in SFI BASICS and keep ONLY them as your focus. Everything else—all that stuff that looks overwhelming—is really just tools and resources to help you with the actions described in SFI BASICS. Over time, everything will begin to make sense and you will be delighted that you have so many powerful tools to build your business with.
2. Do NOT try to learn everything about SFI in a few days or weeks. One of the main reasons SFI is so successful is because it has real substance—with more than 25 years behind it and literally tens of millions of dollars invested into building its system and infrastructure. Yes, you're now part of a REAL business that you can earn a very large income with, but it will take time to fully absorb everything. And that's alright, because anything worthwhile in life takes time. So relax and take your time. Learn a little bit every day. Soon, making money with SFI will become second nature for you. Getting started and taking daily action is the key.
We clearly advise affiliates on the information available to them. If they choose to go beyond what we recommend, that's not something we can control.
Could we hold information back (as some suggest we do)? We could, but we can tell you that for every affiliate who says there's too much information, we have just as many who want all the information available to them immediately so they can get started earning money right away. If we were to withhold such information from those you sponsor who want to immediately begin taking action, making sales, recruiting, etc., that would be very bad for them, for us, and for you.
Bottom line: We try very hard to provide a good middle ground.
