What Is SFI ?

I will start with SFI is not a scam. You heard me right SFI is not a SCAM. That being said, what is SFI?. I joined SFI in order to give you the best review possible. SFI (Strong Future International) Marketing Group was founded in 1998. SFI boasts it has more than 10,000 Products and services that are sold in more than 190 Countries throughout the World.

Pros :

Cons :

  • The training is basically train yourself
  • The products are over priced
  • No help driving Traffic
  • No Video tutorials
  • No real community support

How do you earn money ?

There are basically three ways to earn commission with SFI

  • Sell Products – They Provide you with what they call a gateway to Triple Clicks Where you send people to purchase products and thus earn a commission
  • Purchase Products – Yep you purchase products from which you earn a commission
  • Refer People – Affiliate program the people you refer sign up and you make commission from their sales and purchases.

Products and Pricing

SFI says it has access to more than 10,000 products and services. Ten Thousand sounds like a lot of products but it is really minuscule compared to 1,000,000’s of Products listed on Amazon. As I looked through their product lists I Found that a number of the product headings had no items for sale. Once you have the product you want to promote where do you promote them.

SFI Has a heading called Marketing and a sub heading Marketing Methods. The first three methods of marketing are 1.) sell to your Family and Friends by sending them to the Triple Clicks Link. 2.) Refer Family and Friends to specific product links. 3.) Share Product information on Face Book, Pinterest or Twitter.

The Pricing of the products seem to be quite a bit higher than on Amazon as well. Here is one example a simple External Battery. You know one of those power bars that you can get to use as extra battery power for your Phone. Here is a comparison between similar products one from Triple Clicks the other from Amazon

As you can See there is quite a price difference making the Triple Clicks product a much harder sell. The Pricing was similar in most or the products that I compared. I am not saying it is impossible to sell the products. I am just giving you the honest information.


Training What Training ?

I have been with SFI for almost Three months now and the training is just a compilation of written lessons, endless reading its mind-numbing. There are no videos no tutorials no interaction between teacher and student. No comment sections. There is a live chat where you can ask for help from other members who seem just as lost as me.

 

 

This is one of the most hands off approaches to internet marketing that I have ever seen. If you have any real issues you can open a support ticket and wait for a response. So you train yourself and you hope that you can get help in a timely manner. I said in the beginning that SFI is not a Scam. On the other hand I do not Recommend this program.

  1. I think affiliate marketing is 100% legit , but not everyone can do that, that is very hard job and you must put a lot of effort in. By the way the site is awesome and very well organized.

    1. That is true Affiliate Marketing is not for everyone, as for being hard I don’t think so I am very comfortable doing it and I work on it about 2 – 3 hours a day. That’s far less than when I worked for someone else. I love it

    1. The Commission rate varies from one Affiliate to the next The Giants pay between 8% and 12%. There are programs out there that pay as much as 75% Commission. I tend to look for the ones somewhere in the middle.

  2. To be honest, i like affiliate marketing because you’re free to work in a flexible schedule and environment of your own choosing and you don’t even have to worry about any after-sales customer concerns. And you will earn money while you sleep .

    1. You sure can earn money while you sleep, while you play, or while you are doing anything you want. I was on Vacation last month for two weeks and made, well let’s just say I earned a enough to pay for the vacation.

  3. Affiliate marketing can be an easy way to have another source of income for website owners and publishers. This type of marketing works as when an individual struck a deal with a company to promote their products on the individual’s blog. This type of marketing and advertising is less expensive and is a wiser way to sell products online.

    1. That is absolutely correct Lazar. It is financially smart for the Product owner and the Marketer. The Product gets Tons of Free Advertising for which they pay peanuts. The Marketer gets Free Products to sponsor has no shipping and no inventory it is a win win situation.

  4. Yes actually it’s one of most profitable ways to make money online. You no need to worry with creating your own product. You just have to choose a good product and send quality traffic into it.

  5. It has always been believed that earning for a good life requires a lot of hard work but when you have the convenient ways of earning money then there’s nothing that could be better than this. The conveniences of internet are hardly hidden from any person. This global network also came up with the platform for conducting affiliate marketing for any online business that will help you earn and keep your profits fuller.
