Astro Auction Gateway now available!

We’re excited today to announce that the new Astro Auctions Gateway is now available for your marketing campaigns.

Tip: This new Gateway is for signing up PRMs…and if they like Astro and begin buying TCredits and bidding regularly (especially if they become VIPs), you’re going to earn GREAT Direct Commissions (52% of CV), plus loads of VersaPoints, too!

But before you dive in…

There are some special rules that go with using this Gateway, so please read the following carefully:

First, there are TWO versions of the Astro Auctions Gateway.  Which version your prospects see depends on YOU.

Version One offers your prospects a free bid.  That is, after signing up, they can immediately enter any open Astro Auction with guaranteed prizes for them but with absolutely no cost or risk!  This if of course a fantastic way to build your list of PRMs and, more importantly, get them engaged and making purchases (that earn you commissions).  With Version One of the Gateway, however, you’re required to provide the TCredits for the free bid (we automatically transfer one TCredit from your account to the new member’s account upon registering).

Version Two of the Astro Auction Gateway does NOT offer your prospects a free bid.  Instead, it simply highlights all the cool features of Astro and encourages them to sign up to try it out.  Of course, to try it, they’ll need to first buy TCredits, so your success rate of creating engaged new customers will likely be less, probably substantially less.


1. Go to and choose your level of participation. That is, choose how many TCredits per day you want to make available to your sign-ups (once this amount is reached, until the next day, your prospects will automatically see Version Two of the Gateway which doesn’t offer the free bid).  Note that you can change your limit, up or down, any time.

2. Begin promoting Astro, referring your prospects to:  (XXXXX = your SFI ID number)


To help you get started right away generating hits for the new Gateway, we’ve created some cool new banners in several sizes.  Here are three samples:

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are choosing to use Version Two of the Gateway, you may only use the banners that do NOT offer a free bid. 

You can find all the new Astro Auction banners at our Marketing Center HERE.

An explosion of activity at Astro, with many thousands more participating in Astro Auctions every day will have big, juicy benefits for everyone (better deals, more auctions, more products, more bidders, more sales, more CV, bigger commissions, etc.).

So, Sponsors and Team Leaders…help us spread the word to your team members about our exciting new VIP program and Astro!  And to help you do so, we’ve just increased the TCredits Transfer limit from 10 to 15. 

In other words, for your new team members, you can now transfer to them up to 15 TCredits.  And even for those you’ve previously transferred 10 to, you have an additional 5 you can now provide at your discretion.  

Note: We’re not recommending that you just give everyone 15 TCredits!  But what you SHOULD consider is transferring one or two to your team members who’ve not yet tried Astro so they can experience the fun and thrill of our new auction program.  After experiencing Astro, they may very become regular bidders, even VIP bidders (which will of course grow your commissions)!  

Following (in green) is a sample letter you can use (edit as needed):

Hi, FirstName!

I’m really excited about the new Astro Auctions.

After checking your badges, it looks like you haven’t yet tried out an Astro Auction.  With its great guaranteed prizes, free jackpot entries, free shipping, and more, I wanted to make sure you got to try them out.

So, I just transferred a TCredit from my account to yours so you can experience the fun of Astro.  Here’s what you need to do now:

1. Log in at:

2. Choose the auction you want to enter.

3. Click the BID button and place your bid.

4. As soon as the auction is ready to launch, you’ll receive an email.  Click the launch link included in the email and claim your (guaranteed) winnings!

That’s it!

Once you’ve claimed your winnings, please drop me a note and let me know what you think about Astro.  Also, if I can be of assistance on anything else to help you grow your SFI business, don’t hesitate to ask!


P.S. Also, check out the new VIP program that SFI has just announced, which makes Astro even more fun and rewarding.  Details at:

Great new features, additions at Astro!

JUNIOR auctions at Astro are now live! Junior auctions are based on the TCredits you have in your account and disallows participation by those with large TCredits balances, making Junior auctions easier to win for less aggressive bidders.

You can identify Junior and other special auctions by the paperclip icon located in the bottom left corner. Click the icon for further details.

ALSO, we’ve just added PSAs and PRMs to Astro.

Bid on Astro Auctions HERE.

More goodies and features coming next week, so stay tuned!
