The E365 (Entrepreneur 365) contest takes place between all affiliates who joined SFI on the same day. The goal is for each new affiliate to earn enough VPs (VersaPoints) to qualify and move on through each new round, and finally be crowned E365 Champion of their class.
VersaPoints are the core of the SFI member rank system, and the number of VP you earn directly affects the amount of commission payments you can receive. Learning how to earn VP consistently and regularly is obviously a very important part of an affiliate’s introduction to SFI, so taking part in the E365 contest is a great way to get started.
There are 6 rounds, and progress through the first 5 elimination rounds, is as simple as being “above average” in terms of VP earned. The 6th and final round is a straightforward challenge between the surviving contestants to see who can earn the most VP by the end of the contest. E365 runs for a whole year, so contestants can amass a huge amount of VP by the time it reaches its conclusion.
The first 6 rounds take place in your first 31 days in SFI, and ALL members who stay above the ‘Green Line’, shown on your SFI homepage, will win prizes (listed below). However, on your first year’s anniversary with SFI, only ONE person from all of whom joined on the same day as you, will win the coveted E365 Champion award.
Participating in E365 is an opportunity for new affiliates to get off to a strong and positive start with their SFI business. There are obviously prizes to be won, on qualification for each round, and daily random prizes throughout the final round, but the prizes are secondary to the opportunity E365 gives affiliates to learn, grow and develop their business. To stand a chance of winning, an affiliate will have to develop a sound business plan based on good all-round knowledge of the SFI opportunity, and put that plan into action. It’s SFI’s way of helping new affiliates to hit the ground running.
However, it is certainly not the be-all-and-end-all if you do not become the overall Champion – what you will have learned and achieved during your first year with SFI will be the real prize!
I had some stiff competition in my first year, and came 2nd in my class (out of around 3,500 affiliates who joined on the same day as I did) to a very worthy winner, but still regard myself as a winner in what SFI gave me throughout the year and beyond, to develop my online business-building skills and earnings.
