SFI affiliates and other third parties with products or services to offer can submit ZNAs (Zing Network Ads) for approval. Approved ads appear on the Daily Tabs at the SFI Affiliate Center (as illustrated below), during and after Astro Auctions, to people playing our Eager Zebra Crystal Ball game, or to people playing T-Time.
One big objective with ZNAs is to match up buyers and sellers in the same countries. Therefore, the system includes the flag of the country where the seller resides. When affiliates see a flag from their country or region, they may be more likely to check out the seller's offerings and support these local businesses spending their advertising dollars with SFI. Some advertisers may also offer Rewardicals for purchases, which can then be redeemed for lots of goodies.
NOTE: Ads for business opportunities, including the SFI program, are prohibited. Affiliates may, however, submit ads for particular products at TripleClicks.com using one of their Gateway links.
IMPORTANT: Affiliates won't see ads until an advertiser chooses to promote their offering to their specific demographic. For example: A German advertiser may only want to put his or her ads in front of affiliates from Germany. If you're not from Germany, you wouldn't see the ad. When an advertiser chooses your demographic, you'll see the ad.

WHY THE ZNAP MAKES SENSE FOR SFI & BEYOND
1. New types of commissions may become possible in the future (i.e. earn commissions by selling advertising on Zing Network sites).
2. It gives Localvantia merchants a direct method to attract affiliates and members in their area. Similarly, it can allow Rewardical ECAs a great way to bring new customers to their websites and products.
3. By attracting and partnering with well-known companies and brands, we can expand our footprint and burnish our own brands, which can pave the way for a much bigger overall opportunity for SFI affiliates over time.
4. Advertising revenues can fund numerous, business-boosting new programs for SFI affiliates, lucrative contests (e.g. win trips!), and much more.
5. It provides yet another great conversation-starter with businesses...which can lead to Localvantia/Rewardical merchant referrals, sales of ECommergy subscriptions, etc.
