Is SFM A Scam? – Judge For Yourself

Is SFM A ScamIs SFM a scam? Or in fact is – insert whatever you are researching as a possible internet business to get involved with – a scam, is a valid question. Judging by the number of views my video by the same title has received it’s a popular one. Co-founder of SFM (Six Figure Mentors) Stuart Ross says in his video – in answer to the same question – no it isn’t and here’s why.

Stuart was one of the few who found very fast success after discovering the affiliate marketing business model. He puts this down to being in the right place at the right time and to a lot of hard work. Within 6 months of starting he had made his first half million. He wasn’t selling get rich quick schemes or push button instant wealth programmes, just products that were in high demand at a time when most of us started looking for them on the internet.

He started by producing multiple websites promoting dozens of low profit high turnover affiliate products like e-cigarettes. Then he discovered high-ticket products that for the same work or less produced big profits. He learned how to become very good at Internet marketing on multiple online advertising platforms.

He then went on to coach and mentor others on how to do this and earned another fortune as a business consultant. Later, with business partner Jay Kubassek, he formed SFM and partner outfit DEA (Digital Experts Academy) That’s where we come back to the question is SFM a scam?

What They Actually Do

What SFM and DEA actually do is provide a platform for Internet entrepreneurs that reverse engineers their success as affiliate marketers. It’s a membership platform, which provides an online marketing tool kit, advanced training and a high ticket affiliate ‘business in a box’, for those who want to get started quickly.

Real Products

This offers members everything needed to create Internet businesses around any of the millions of readily available affiliate products and services. There is no requirement to promote their suite of education products although most do. Nothing beats being a product of the product so to speak – selling products that you yourself use.

So really the question – Is SFM a scam? – is null and void here. I’ve been a member and affiliate partner of both SFM and DEA for 3 years. Previous to that I’ve seen many an obvious and not so obvious Internet scam come and go. Sad to say I’ve been duped by a couple along the way.

In fact helping entrepreneurs avoid Internet scams is one of the reasons Stuart and Jay founded the company. Both could have retired into the sunset many years ago if money had been their sole motivation. Instead they have invested their personal fortunes in a business they are clearly passionate about: Their multiple annual live events, daily, weekly and monthly live webinars are clear evidence of that.

In my video – Is SFM a Scam – I liken it to comparing a bus to a lump of cheese. I then take the viewer on a guided tour of my own SFM back office and show them exactly what you get as a member. I’ll try to explain the bus/cheese thing: A bus is a vehicle that takes you where you want to go. A lump of cheese is well … a lump of cheese: It’ll disappear quickly or rot.

How To Tell The Difference

Is SFM a ScamAffiliate marketing and Internet marketing (as taught by SFM and DEA) is simply the process of matching legitimate products and services to the people who are looking for them. Pretty easy to understand I think given that you can sell anything from cat food to Internet dating services – and everything in between online. You sell something and earn a commission from the sale.

At this moment in time, with a huge and rapidly widening digital skills gap, the hot products are in e-learning and digital education. Learning how to do business on the Internet being the hottest of the hot – like SFM and DEA.

Internet scams on the other hand, in my experience, are based around complicated, hard to understand or explain, ideas. Sometimes they can sound quite plausible but the question “where does the money come from?” is always hard or impossible to answer.

The Sad Truth About Online Scams

Usually the truth is that the money comes from the people that can be persuaded to part with it. They tend to be work-shy dreamers looking for something push button simple. They are prepared to believe that clicking on a hundred adverts per day will bring them riches fast. Or that some saint-like individual has developed a way of sharing the revenue they’ve generated from trading shares – they just need your money to invest……

Personally I’m far too sceptical to fall for that crock. There was a time when I networked with people who were promoting this stuff and I’ve lost count of the schemes, programmes and “opportunities” that have come and gone.

Meanwhile SFM and DEA have gone from strength to strength, as has my business partnership with them. As well as promoting their platform they have also helped me develop online businesses selling guitar lessons and energy saving products. I’ve also been able to earn consultancy fees and to market my partner’s traditional business via the Internet.
