* Member Rewards Program (http://news.sfimg.com/index.

We're in the process right now of transitioning our EyeEarn (EE) program to an exciting new replacement program we've named WAVE3 (W3).
With so many great additions (and the above are just a FEW), it's not surprising SFI enjoyed a great year in 2010...and 2011 will, no doubt, be even bigger. In fact, many of 2010's accomplishments are simply the foundations for even more powerful improvements in 2011 . Yes, we are continually building, building, building. One piece at a time. Building the most powerful program of its kind in the world!
So what might be coming in 2011? Here are just a FEW of the items planned:
- WAVE3 (official launch in next 10 days)
- Thousands of additional new products and ECAs at TC
- New SFI marketing tools, promotions and programs
- A new, redesigned TC homepage and more
- Local selling for member listings fully enabled
- Will-call local pick-ups for ECAs fully enabled
- TC Product and ECA ratings/reviews
- Expanded Pricebenders auctions
- New weekly/bi-weekly newsletters for W3 members, SFI affiliates, and ECAs
- Several powerful new features at the SFI Affiliate Center
And we've got some MAJOR new additions to the family coming too. We can't share any details today, but they could be as big as anything we've ever done...so stay tuned...and GET READY for the opportunities that are on the way.
ONE MORE THING...
Our "secret sauce"...the reason SFI continues to grow...the reason SFI is now in it's 12th successful year...the reason tens of thousands of would-be competitors have come and gone over the years while SFI continues to flourish...is because of YOU, our affiliates. You make SFI go...and for that we THANK YOU SO VERY, VERY MUCH!
Let's all now go make 2011 SFI's greatest year yet!
