SFI Introduces Another Income Stream – ID Theft Protection by Privacy Maxx

Strong Future International (SFI) keeps enhancing its affiliate program with the addition of Privacy Maxx. Learn how you can capitalize on the growing ID protection market as an SFI affiliate..



Now has never been a better time to become an SFI affiliate. The Tripleclicks marketplace continues to grow and exceed expectations, while Pricebenders is steadily moving into the limelight and gaining more popularity in the penny auction realm.


If you thought life was good as an SFI affiliate, now there’s news that an Identity Theft Protection service has been added to the line-up.


Why an Identity Theft Protection Service?


Can you imagine using your debit card without covering up the keypad from prying eyes? Well of course not. There’s just too many people out there who want a free ride at your expense.



Not only do you have to worry about the people around you when you use your credit/debit card, but you have to worry about the breaches at websites where your confidential information is held.


Just recently the IRS had such a breach. If that’s not scary, then what is? See story here.


There’s even been cases where briefcases and laptops that contained people’s private information have been lost. Here are just two stories: The I’m Sorry I Lost My Briefcase Letter and Oops, I Compromised Your Private Info…


It’s bad enough that there are people entrusted with your confidential info walking around with it, it’s worse when they do careless things like leave it laying around in car!


Are You Next?


If you’ve never gotten a letter from a financial institution saying that your confidential information may have been exposed, then you’re among the minority.


I myself have gotten several letters over the years from my banks and credit card companies saying that my confidential information may have been exposed through a breach in their website. I even got one of those “briefcase” letters I mentioned above.



It’s like this…


Sooner or later, you’re gonna get a letter too if you haven’t already. Odds you may know someone who’s had their identity stolen.


It’s unfortunate that the demand for identify theft protection is growing – and it’s not going away anytime soon. You see, there’s big money to be made by crooks with stolen information. It’s a billion-dollar industry that’s costing banks, credit card companies, and people like you and me big time.


There is a way you can help people not become victims of identity theft and that’s through SFI’s new product affiliation with Privacy Maxx.


What Does Tripleclicks Privacy Maxx Do?


First of all, the special with Privacy Maxx is customized exclusively for TripleClicks customers. This deal is not available on Privacy Maxx’s website.



Family Identity Theft Protection


This is a very pro-active identify theft plan in that it:

  • Provides three full years of coverage for their entire family
  • Has a Proactive Monitoring System that will alert them to potential issues before an ID theft occurs
  • Has a fully-managed Family Identity Recovery and 12-month post-monitoring service
  • Has a generous $25,000 expense reimbursement policy

…all for a one-time payment of just $199!


It’s a great deal for anyone who’s concerned about their identity being stolen.


Are You Afraid You Might Be the Next Identity Theft Victim?


If you’re troubled by the rising crime of identity theft, then you’ll want to get in on this great Privacy Maxx deal by going here.


How You Can Be a Part of the Lucrative Identity Theft Protection Marketplace


If you ever want to make money online without the struggle, you’ve got to find a product/service that is in demand and that people are already buying.



I’ve seen too many people do the opposite and then wonder why they’re having a hard time making money in their business.


It’s like swimming upstream when everyone else is swimming downstream.


It Gets Easier


It’s a no brainer to see that identity theft protection is a hot evergreen niche that continues to grow exponentially.


With the introduction of Privacy Maxx in the Tripleclicks marketplace, as an SFI affiliate you have another money-maker that can produce yet another income stream for you.

As an SFI affiliate, you get $33.75 for each Privacy Maxx protection plan sold. You also get a generous 5,600 Versa Points (VP). You’ll want to refer to the SFI comp plan here.


In an industry where you’re paid a few dollars as an affiliate/distributor for products, it’s nice to know that there’s a company like SFI that’s going to give you a much higher than average commission for selling something that is such great demand as an identity theft protection product.


How to Get Started Making Money With Privacy Maxx Identity Theft Protection…

SFI Introduces New Programs to Help SFI Affiliates Build Their Businesses

If you’re an SFI affiliate, you’ll be eager to know that SFI has launched two new programs to help you build your business…


work at home mom home business

It’s no secret that most people who join a network marketing company become disappointed in the amount of resources and tools that these companies offer its distributors.


After all, it’s in the companies best interest to give its distributor force as many tools as it can to help them build their business – right?


Unfortunately, most companies leave their reps empty handed thereby forcing them to seek out third-party network marketing training.


Where other network marketing companies have dropped the ball, Strong Future International or SFI  for short has taken the ball and ran with it.


You see, SFI is always improving and focusing on getting more education, tools, and resources in the hands of its distributors so they can build a better business. In fact, you can even take what you learn at SFI and apply it in another business.


SFI Business Tools



The latest tools to come out of SFI are T-Credit Welcomes  and Cash Welcome.


Both of these programs address the biggest problems in network marketing  – getting people engaged and involved in their business.


If you’re a network marketer, then I’m sure you’ve faced those challenges in your business at one time or another.


Incentives Build More Interest



By giving small incentives (heck, everybody likes free stuff) to new enrollees, these programs aim to help people become more active in their business.


SFI again proves that it’s ahead of the curve and really care about helping people build successful businesses.

SFI Takes Tracking to a New Level

It’s always been said that if you’re not tracking your advertising you’re pretty shooting in the dark.


sfi news

SFI has upped its game again and is now allowing you to download your tracking results so you can analyze and see what’s working and what’s not working.


SFI Members


You’ll want to do download your stats before each Sunday because that’s when the system automatically resets the stats. You can read more here.


To get access to your SFI Hit Tracking page, click here.


How to Do SFI’s Tracking


If you have any questions about SFI or TripleClicks, all you have to do is log into SFI and click on the red tab on top that says Ask SC.



To Track Hits…


SFI member John Gill gave an excellent example of how to do this. Just a testament on how the SFI community is always willing to help one another.

With the hit tracking, you should also use the Key Code section and you can determine which of your gateways is bringing better results and more hits.


The xxxxx should be your affiliate number, the 56 is an example you could use as a reminder for where you have your ad listed. (Say 56 is “X” advertiser).

Then choose a different number for another place like 36. (Say 36 is “y” advertiser).

Then in the hit tracking section, you can check your hits, specifically on a Saturday before they reset. You will see that “x” advertiser got more hits and “y” advertiser got less, based on the numbers you have chosen for each advertiser. Then you would know to stick with advertiser “X” instead of “Y”.

You can also use this same method with each gateway…

Choose a different key code for each gateway, keep track of which ones get the best return for you, and you will know which gateways have the biggest return for your promotions and advertising methods.


Thanks John!

Running a Small Business From Home Without Going Bonkers in the Process

Want to know about running a small business from home before you invest a whole lot of time and money? Then you’ve got to read this…


running a small business from home

So what do you really know about running a small business from home?


You may have heard horror stories from your friends…


And you may have heard of the great advantages from your other friends.


So where does the truth lie? What are the important things you’ve got to know about running a small business from home?


Well, I’m not gonna sugar coat this – this may or may not be what you’re expecting to read; however, this will save you a boat load of time, money, and energy if you understand these important concepts…


Running a Small Business From Home – The Good and the Bad


Having had businesses of some sort all my life, I can tell you there is no greater feeling knowing that you’re making your own money from your very own business.


running a small business from home


Can you remember a time where you felt like you were really in charge?


That’s the feeling that a lot of hopeful entrepreneurs chase. What stops most people who want to work from home, is not understanding right from the get-go what it takes to run a business from home.


Although you have all the perks of being home, you also have all the distractions that come with it.


Let’s be real, you are within walking distance of your bed, your couch, and a TV – it’s no wonder that a lot of home business owners struggle to stay on task in their business. In fact, any one of those things can be a business-killer for sure.


So running a small business from home can be full of distractions that can put your business in a nose dive – but an online business can also be the fastest kind of business to turn a profit in the shortest amount of time.


So amid all the great benefits of having a home business, you’ve got to be able to stay focused and multi-task when you have to. Remember, if you’re a solo entrepreneur you’re gonna be wearing many hats – the customer service hat, the marketing hat, the website troubleshooting hat, and on and on it goes.


It can literally drive you a bit crazy unless you know how to structure your environment and your day.


Let’s break this down…


Successfully Running a Small Business From Home in 4 Easy Steps


running a small business from home

After you read this section you will have a clear path as to what you’ve got to to do to get on the successful path of running a small business from home without succumbing to the many distractions that plaque most home businesses.


Let’s start with number one…it has to do with finding small at home business ideas


1. Choose a Business That You Like – It’s no secret that if you’re in a business that you actually like you’ll look forward to working it day in and day out. You’ll also be less likely to give in to your favorite show at a time you should be working your business.


There are many, many businesses you can do from home. You can take your existing skills/hobbies and turn it into an online business – as long as you’ve identified your target buying audience online.


You can sell someone else’s products and services as in the case of affiliate marketing and network marketing.


For example, I like shopping online so it was an easy thing for me to join a company that rewards me for showing people how to save money online.


What are your interests that you can turn into a money-making venture? Would you want to sell someone else’s products or join a network marketing company?


2. Control Your Environment – Can you imagine detonating a bomb with a person in your ear telling you every few seconds that you’re a loser and that you’re terrible at detonating bombs?


How likely would it be that you would mess up and blow yourself up? How much confidence would you have in yourself if you had a negative person like this telling you how awful you were?


running a small business from home

Well replace the scenario with that of a loved one who’s nagging you telling you that you’ll never succeed or those things never work, or you can’t make money from home?


How successful would you be running a small business from home?


In all likelihood you would really suck. If those around you don’t distill confidence in you, then you should limit your time with them or don’t be around them at all if possible.


Another thing you can do is to not tell your loved ones what you’re doing – no need to give them all the details. Lastly, you can give them the talk.


The Talk goes something along these lines…

I need your love and support at this time because it’s very hard and at times stressful to build a business. I know you have my best interest at heart when you tell me_____ but I have to make tough decisions and sometimes that may include making mistakes.

Without failures there can never be successes. I appreciate your words of wisdom, I just ask that at this time if you could hold your opinions and thoughts to yourself so I can focus on moving our lives ahead.


Now that you’ve chosen your business and you’ve controlled your environment as much as you can, now it’s time to work on getting a plan together.


3. Plan Your Life – Plan Your Business


I like to use Google Calendar, but you can use any kind of calendar system you want. What’s important is that if you have a busy family life that you plan your family’s activities and your business-building activities on a calendar.


You’ll have less wiggle room to get out of building your business or dodging a pre-planned family activity. You could even schedule in your favorite show as a reward for getting your business building activities done.


4. Get the Eyeballs on Your Products – When it comes to running a small business from home, this is the area that is neglected the most. You see, without traffic and leads your business is a goner.



There’s just no getting over this. The fastest way to get traffic to your products is to do paid marketing. That could be running Facebook Ads, pay per click on Google or Bing, etc…


Your goal should be to pick one traffic technique and get it down so that it’s producing results for you before you add on another marketing technique.


Running a Small Business From Home – In a Nutshell…


By now you’ve realized a lot of the pitfalls that you can fall into as a home based business entrepreneur. There are a lot of moving parts to being a business owner that at times it can get a little hectic and confusing especially when you’re wearing many different hats.


These four simple steps outlined here can help you combat these pitfalls so that you can have dynamic and enjoyable time running a small business from home successfully without going crazy in the process.


Step one is picking a business – see these recommended businesses section here if you don’t already have one picked out…



Scott Hilton’s Credit Secret Review 2015: Fix Credit Problems?

Are you eager to get your hands on Scott Hilton’s Credit Secret – but you’re not quite sure if this is real or whether or not it will work for you? If you’re ready to fix credit problems that are holding you back, then read up on this…



If you’re a business owner or just an ordinary run-of-the-mill person, you know how important it is to have good credit. After all, you know that you’ll pay an arm and a leg in higher interest rates if you have bad credit. Do you feel like sometimes you’re being punished?


Not only that but some creditors won’t even lend you money if your credit score is not high enough!


What’s worse is to be turned down for credit in a store where there are people all around and the cashier tells you loudly that it was denied! Has that ever happen to you? How did it make you feel?


So before you even begin to start applying for credit for any reason, let me tell you that you’ve gotta straighten out that credit first.




If you’re thinking about paying those huge fees to a credit repair company, let me tell you you’re gonna be in for a let down and a meltdown.


There are a lot of companies in the credit repair industry that are complete scams. In fact, in my mid twenties I was scammed by a credit repair company that even had the BBB plaque on their wall!


The truth of the matter is that after you’ve paid those big fees to a credit repair company there’s no guarantee that any of your bad credit will be erased. In fact, even if they do manage to get some items removed from your credit report, your creditors can put it back on months later if the found that it was accurate to begin with.


Are you gonna pay money again to get those items removed yet again? What if it takes five attempts to remove those items – are you gonna pay the credit repair company five times?


As you can see, going with a credit repair company can be very costly to the tune of hundreds of dollars. I guess you probably already know this which is why you’re looking at Scott Hilton’s Credit Secret.


Read on…


Other Scott Hilton’s Credit Secret Reviews Don’t Tell You This


I know who the person is behind this credit program and he started off being dead broke with a lot of credit card companies on his back.


In fact, he ultimately became a multimillionaire but he probably wouldn’t have gotten there if he had not sued his creditors and repaired his credit first.



So, does this guy know what he’s talking about? You betcha!


And unlike other credit repair programs you see on the Internet, the person behind Credit Secret had no intention of selling these secrets to the public.


All he wanted to do was find a way to repair the damage that was done.


And what he discovered was a little known loophole that nobody talks about that can literally raise your credit score by about a 100 points!.


One hundred points is significant. Not only would you pay a lot less for credit, but you would eligible for credit that you normally wouldn’t get if your score was one hundred points lower.


Here are just two testimonials about Scott Hilton’s Credit Secret:


My score was 497 before I started. After a month it’s at 565.
Rico A.


I raised my score 100 points in the last six months and just signed a contract to buy a house that I could previously not do. Thanks!
Christopher T.


Overall This Scott Hilton’s Credit Secret Review Comes Down to This


You really have two choices – either sit on the sideline and do nothing about your bad credit situation as time passes you by, or you could take action and finally get the credit score that’s been holding you back from buying the things that you want without paying through the roof in high interest rates.



If you’re a business owner, now is the time to get your financial situation straight for 2015 so you can have more money to put towards your business and even get out of debt.


If you’re not a business owner but just want to have more choices in life without being put into the sub-prime category with other people with low credit scores, now’s your chance to rise out of that pit of bad credit hell.


You want better credit – right?


You want to get a credit repair program that’s written by someone who knows what they’re talking about – right?


Then you want Scott Hilton’s Credit Secret.


This is the last Scott Hilton Credit Secret Review you’ll ever need to read…

How Home Businesses Take Advantage of Virtual Services

Compared to a decade ago there are an enormous number of virtual services available to home business owners nowadays that simply didn’t exist back then; services which can make the running of your business significantly easier while, at the same time, helping to prove to yourself and others that you do indeed run a home-based business, rather than working a home-based job.

Virtual workers

Image source:

There are countless ways in which virtual services can work for you to help take your home business to the next level.

Some of the most popular (and potentially most important for your business going forward) are that they:


Serve as Your Registered Business Address


If you’re a home-based business there’s a good chance that you had trouble getting all your insurance documents and other information in order when setting out to name your home address as your new business’s address.


The difficultly of this issue varies by country (and often by provinces and states within each country), but if you’ve ever had to go through this process in a location in which many forms of identification and paperwork is needed for you to simply be able to work from your own home you’ll know how much time this takes up, time that’s much better off being spent actually working on your business.


In this regard, employing the ‘registered business address’ virtual service from a virtual business services provider is a no-brainer, as it allows you, for a small monthly fee, to use an address owned by the virtual company as your registered business address, meaning you no longer have to worry about the legal requirements surrounding working from your home.


Provide Telephone Answering and Mail Handling Services


These services can either be arranged for your home business as part of a package (such as alongside a registered business address) or individually.


If you receive numerous calls throughout the day, but are often unable to answer some due to being in a meeting or working alongside a client, taking advantage of a virtual telephone answering service is a great way of ensuring none of your calls go unanswered, with the contents of your call being delivered to you by email, in most cases, with the person answering your calls for you doing so in a manner that suggests they’re your company secretary or receptionist.


If you receive a fairly high volume of mail you can pay a virtual services company to have this mail delivered to one of their addresses, with their staff opening it and either scanning in the letters and emailing you a copy, or forwarding the letters directly to you.


Have Numerous Meeting, Training, and Videoconferencing Rooms


One of the main problems of home working is the need to find a suitable meeting, training, or videoconferencing room when you need to perform these necessary business tasks. Conducting an effective meeting is stressful enough without the need to find an actual room in which to conduct it from playing in the back of your mind. Virtual services offer these albeit not virtual necessities, meaning you can:


  • Take meetings in rooms fit for purpose, often at the last minute.
  • Find room(s) large enough for an entire training session, potentially spanning several days.
  • Come across a private space to undertake an important videoconference from.


In conclusion, as a home business owner if you’re not currently taking advantage of the myriad of virtual services available to you you’re missing out. Popular services among home business owners include the ability for them to act as your registered business address, telephone answering and mail handling services, and the use of meeting rooms when they’re required.

World Ventures Can Continue to Sell Its Membership in Norway – Victory or Defeat?

The final word has come down from Sweden that World Ventures can sell its membership in their country. With a long list of problems for this mlm travel company, is this the end or only the beginning?



World Ventures

World Ventures execs are probably jumping up for joy right now with the news that Norway has now allowed them to sell their travel memberships in their country. You can read the article here…


World Ventures, one of many network marketing travel companies, has endured a lot of controversy since its inception – see these:


I’ve personally never been a fan of mlm travel companies – and neither are business regulators in many countries. That doesn’t mean that the travel program is completely flawed (from all accounts, it appears it used the Travelocity travel engine), it means that there is something to be said about the business opportunity side of things.


There has to be something consumable in order justify the monthly price tag which is one of the reasons why World Ventures gets accused of playing a money game.


Hopefully WV can learn from its mistakes and detractors and create a more solid business opportunity that doesn’t come with the skepticism and controvery this one has created.


Just my two cents.

Tennessee Pulls the Plug on Pyramid Schemes

In the latest round of hits against pyramid schemes and direct selling organizations companies like Herbalife, Tennessee decides that more regulation is the cure.


tennessee ponzi scheme

In a move that is becoming more common these days, the attorney general in Tennessee has passed legislation againgst Pyramid schemes. You can see the story here.


If you didn’t know it already, Pyramid schemes also known as Ponzi Schemes are illegal already. So what makes this legislation in Tennessee different?


Must Read: What is MLM?


Well according to the article on the Direct Selling News site, it gives law enforcement more leverage in prosecuting these schemers. In fact, a lot of states are updating their Pyramid scheme laws.

Which is a good thing as long as they, meaning the Feds, understand what a true pyramid scheme is and isn’t.


Could it be possible that legitimate companies could be rounded up in a case of mistaken identity by this latest legislation?


I would say that it’s possible. Take the case of Herbalife that’s under a lot of scrutiny right now by the Feds (see story here).


I’m not in Herblife, but I do know they do sell legit products. If you want to argue against their selling price-points and how they do business that’s another thing.


What’s important though, as a person who is looking into being involved in the direct selling/Internet marketing realm, is that you use good ol’ commons sense and not rely on the government to tell what is and what isn’t a pyramid scheme.


Just my two cents…
