Review of SFI Marketing Group (SFIMG)

SFI (Strong Future International) Marketing Group is a network marketing company founded by President and CEO Gery Carson. SFI was started in 1998, with only one product servicing the United States. Over 10 years later, SFI is now a completely global business opportunity providing millions of products and services to over 190 countries.

If you’re looking to join a company with a proven and successful track record, there’s none like SFI. Both and men and women all around the world are building profitable internet businesses thanks to SFI’s unique and lucrative business model. SFI’s biggest strength is that they’re constantly evolving and growing to meet the needs of affiliates. This shows they care about their affiliates and who they represent.

With the introduction of the VersaPoints system, affiliates can join for free and earn a substantial income without investing any of their own money. This is one of the biggest differences that set SFI apart from other business opportunities. Because of this, SFI is the fastest growing company of its kind, with over 8,000 new affiliates joining every week.

SFI is also home to the famous International Association for Home Business Entrepreneurs (IAHBE). The IAHBE is a one-of-a-kind resource for aspiring internet business entrepreneurs and is a perfect compliment to the SFI program.

SFI also has two sub-divisions: EyeEarn.com and TripleClicks.com.
EyeEarn.com is the world’s largest advertising network and co-op powered by affiliates. You get paid for going about your normal day and getting seen. You can also gain sponsorship over new affiliates through the EyeEarn network.

TripleClicks.com is home to SFI’s product database, housing thousands of products found nowhere else on the web. Earn commissions by referring people to over one million new and used products from all around the world. You can also sell your own unwanted items on the TripleClicks.com site.

TripleClicks, in addition to thousands of products of its own is also a portal to more than 170 major, name-brand online stores representing millions of additional products and services. These stores are known as MaxMalls Merchants.

Benefits of joining SFI:

  • Free to join
  • Extensive training materials
  • Live Support
  • SFI Discussion Board (Forum) – Get answers, tips and advice from other SFI affiliates.
  • VersaPoints system to encourage affiliates to stay active.
  • Complete Marketing Aides and Tools
  • Gift Certificate Program – Motivate your affiliates by giving them gift certificates to help move their businesses forward.
  • No purchase requirements. Can qualify for all ranks with just actions or combinations of actions and sales!
  • Fast front-end commissions (earn up to 72% of total Commission Volume on every customer sale* you generate!) PLUS lucrative, multiple, ongoing, residual income streams of up to 40% CV!
  • Unlimited earnings potential.
  • Thousands of commissionable products, with new products being added daily.
  • The MaxMalls Pool allows you to automatically share in the worldwide sales and purchases every month of every SFI affiliate…AND every TripleClicks customer!
  • Splash pages designed to maximize your referral and affiliate sponsoring efforts.
  • Prepaid MasterCard for direct payment of sales earnings, easy ordering at TripleClicks and other stores, and more.
  • Much More!

How you earn money with SFI

SFI’s compensation plan has nine components:

  • Customer commissions through sales generated at TripleClicks.com.
  • Affiliate Overrides – When your personally sponsored affiliates purchase something from TripleClicks.com.
  • Executive Overrides – When your personally sponsored affiliates generates a customer sale at TripleClicks.com.
  • Co-Sponsorship Overrides – Earn on activities of the affiliates you’ve been assigned as the Co-Sponsor of.
  • MaxMalls Pool – 100% of the revenues SFI receives from MaxMalls each month goes into a special pool for top affiliates. Every month that you achieve a minimum of 1500 points, you’ll automatically receive one equal share of the pool.
  • Network Overrides – Create an income stream based on your Personally Sponsored Affiliates (PSAs). Network Overrides now take your income to a whole new level by allowing you to earn handsome commissions on the purchases and sales generated by affiliates sponsored by your PSAs and other affiliates in your organization.
  • LaunchPad Rewards – SFI sends you a special daily e-mail your first 30 days that contains a link to an exclusive, copyrighted LaunchPad™ getting-started training Website. Each of the 30 LaunchPad™ editions includes a simple, one-question quiz. Once you’ve completed all 30 quizzes, you’ll receive special LaunchPad™ Rewards.
  • VersaPoints Rewards – Each month, SFI awards cash and other valuable rewards to the top 200 VersaPoints earners of the month. Just be in the top 200 at the end of the month and you’re in!
  • Peak Performer Bonuses – Make the top 20 in any of SFI’s three Peak Performer Quarterly Contests (Top Sponsors, Top Sellers, or Top Builders) and you’ll receive one of many cash bonuses or prizes.

The drawbacks of SFI

No matter what program or opportunity you look at, there’s always going to be drawbacks. That’s just a fact, and SFI is no different. This doesn’t mean that SFI can’t help you earn a part or full-time living on the internet, but there are some things you should be aware of.

  • Becoming an EA is much easier and quicker by earning the required amount of VersaPoints (1,500) each month via TripleClicks credits. Going this route would cost you 19.90 per month to stay an active EA. It’s entirely up to you if you want to spend any money initially. You can earn these points without investing any money, so I suggest doing the necessary tasks first before spending your hard-earned money. In the future, you may want to do so as things will be slow going at first. Once you’re bringing in a steady stream of affiliates and building your team, earning the necessary 1,500 VP will be much easier.
  • Many people are looking for get-rich-quick schemes. Since joining SFI is free, it attracts the types of people that don’t want to invest any time or money and expect to make it big over night. Don’t be surprised if you get bombarded with emails from your affiliates asking you why they’re not making any money. Then after explaining to them what they need to do, you’ll almost never see a single one take action. This shouldn’t discourage you, however. There are plenty of serious people ready to do what it takes – Focus on and help these people as much as possible.
  • The training material available is very good, and I recommend you go through it. However, I suggest you do some research of your own in order to become an effective marketer and take your internet business to the next level. There are many resources and tools out there that SFI doesn’t cover or provide.
  • It’s a fact that every affiliate who earns a full-time income from SFI has their own website. As a beginner, this isn’t necessary. But, if you’re serious about making SFI a profitable internet business, you’re going to want to invest in a website of your own at some point. Only you will know when the time is right, and you’re under no obligation to do so to earn a substantial amount of money from SFI.
  • Not everyone makes money from SFI. Some don’t make a single penny. SFI isn’t full-proof by any means, but there’s not a single business opportunity out there that is.

Is SFI right for you?

This is isn’t your ordinary review. If it was, I’d tell you that SFI is the greatest thing on Earth and that you need to sign up right away. However, I’d be flat out lying. Truth be told, SFI might not be right for you at all. Or rather, you may not be right for SFI. You see, SFI is designed in a manner that the system weeds out the slackers and freebie seekers. Rewards are given to those that take action.

If you’re passionate about building a long-lasting internet business from home, and you’re willing to put in the grunt work to see it through, then SFI is looking for somebody like you. And, SFI could just be the opportunity you’ve been looking for as well.

However, if you’re just another one of those freebie seeking, affiliate hopping, get-rich-quick, make money online wannabes, then I’m sorry to say that you’re in the wrong place.

Have you made a decision?

At this point you’re left with two decisions: dismiss the SFI opportunity and decide it’s not what you’re looking for, or realize that SFI has everything you need to start building a profitable business on the internet.

If you’re ready to give SFI a try, you can Sign Up Here.

SFI is what I devote a lot of my time in because it has proven to be reliable time and time again. That’s not to say I haven’t endured some hardships along the way, but patience and persistence pays off in the end.

I’m in the process of building a team of successful affiliates, and I’d love for you to join me. I offer my own personal free training in addition to SFI’s comprehensive training to assist affiliates in getting a quick head-start.

Do you want to start learning how to make money on the internet? Are you willing to take consistent action toward changing your life and creating a better financial future for yourself?

If you answered yes to either of those questions, then I would highly recommend SFI.

Get started with SFI today!

@Legitimate work at home jobs, Hi there, thanks for commenting. This will be my best month yet for SFI as I’ve earned Bronze Team Leader status. Hang in there and keep working. Your hard work will pay off in the end. It is for me.

@Chandan, I left a few years ago after they made some major changes. I would have liked to continue with them, but I went a different direction.

I still know people that are active with SFI, and the links here and throughout the site go to one of my friend’s pages. I still think they are a good company, just not right for me right now.

I’m interested to hear how you’re doing and what you’re doing to grow with them.

I think i should join your Affiliate Marketing Program.
Thanks for the info.

Hi! I just came across your site though search engine,I want to ask,I can’t get in touch with my sponsor,I have email him,& sent messsages,should I keep trying to get in touch will him or do this on my on with the help of all the info SFI gives me.
Thank you

@Jacqueline Norris, Thanks for the question.

If all of your attempts to contact your sponsor has failed, then chances are you won’t hear from him/her. As sad as it is, there are many sponsors who don’t take care of their downline or even communicate with their affiliates at all.

SFI provides a lot of information, so it’s possible to do it alone, but it’s always nice to have help from other members.

I’m one who helps my team as much as possible because I’m ultimately helping myself as well. I do well when my team does well.

An option for you would be to drop your current account and sign up again under someone else. Not sure if that’s a viable option for you, but it’s something to think about.

If you have any questions about SFI, I’d be happy to answer them for you and help you out. Feel free to email me or post your questions on here.

SFI Marketing Group would be really a nice affiliate and from what I’ved read it offers many benefits and I’ts free to join that really interest me.

I am considering joining your affiliate program, one question… I told this to my friend, and he looked at the list of countries, and his is listed… but is it accepted? He is from Egypt. Thanks.

@Joe@Pepper Spray,

Not sure what you mean by “accepted.” If Egypt is on the list of countries, then there’s no reason why he couldn’t join. I’d be happy to have both of you join my team, so if you have any questions just ask. :)

I provide my own free training as well as the training you get from the site.

Alan,Great review on SFI ( Strong future international ) marketing group. -:) Thanks ! I was thought it was suppose to be Six figure income Marketing group ! :)

Yes they have. I’ve been with them for 5 years now and have seen very positive changes.

Alan, this may sound stupid with all the training given on SFI. But, here goes. I have signed up with SFI about a year ago, went through a lot of the training courses (good information by the way) and came up empty. Got frustrated and quit. Now a year latter, have re-signed or reactivated by account under the same non-responsive Sponsor. I want to do well and will work very hard, just don’t know how to get started really. I know referring and sponsoring are the main things to do. But I really have a tough time figuring out how. Ads? Forums? Blogs? And where or how do you find GOOD Ads, forums and blogs? I found your blog completely by mistake by the way. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

@Phil,

Hey Phil, sorry to hear about your non-responsive Sponsor. That happens quite frequently, and it’s a shame.

Regarding the training, SFI does have a lot of good info, but I can understand where you’re coming from. There are in fact many different ways to drive traffic to your gateway pages. I mainly just use my site and blog as a “gateway” to bring in people looking for ways to make money and work from home. That’s about all I do, which is barely anything.

I offer all of my affiliates free training specifically for SFI. Even though you’re not signed up under me, I’d be willing to give you the details as to how to get signed up. Let me know if you would be interested. Or, you could always leave your crappy Sponsor and re-join under me. ;)

Joking aside, I’d be happy to help a fellow SFI’er out. Look forward to hearing from you, and even though you found my blog by mistake, I hope you’ll stick around. :)

Wow! Home based businesses have never had it so good as we do now! With such resources available to even the novice, we can all look forward to building a lucrative small business providing we have a good product and use the directions and guides as outlined in this and other marketing strategies.

Just curious, why do you want to move your company further away from Google and Clickbank?

Hi Gary,

Just follow the instructions to get going found in your backoffice. I would recommend contacting your sponsor for help.

@Jerry Rivers,

You must earn a certain level of Versa Points each month to become and keep an EA status. Last time I checked, it was 1,500 points. Go through your dashboard and follow the instructions for earning Versa Points.

[Reply]

I just want to say one thing after reading your review. ” Awesome “.
Your blog is very informative.Thanks Man.

[Reply]

I have tried signing up to sfi affiliates. However, when I fill in the information and click the sign up free button, it tells me that the recaptcha code wasnt entered correctly and to try again. I go back, try again, there is no recaptcha code to even enter, not even a box in which to do so let alone an actual code being shown. I’ve tried in both firefox and internet explorer, it is not showing for either.
The only options are for name, email, password, city, state/province and country. Nothing to do with a recaptcha code is appearing.

The Captcha code shows up for me, Dave. Double-check your browser settings and make sure you have Java enabled. It’s possible a particular setting could be blocking the script from running that’s needed to produce the image.

I’ve been with SFI for about half a year, and have to agree on the part regarding SFI not being just for everyone. Especially not those ‘magic button chasers’ who gets turned off by the word ‘long-term’ and ‘work’ ;)

[Reply]

Alan, Excellent information on SFI.
I joined SFI about 2 years ago and have been overwhelmed with how to get started. Assuming that I would be able to get started and make some money without spending money is my first mistake. You have to spend money to make money, right?
I really want to make this workout and at least until some money is made I don’t have any to invest.
Anything you can do to help someone like me who is struggling would be greatly appreciated. Do you have a co-op I can join, that won’t cost me anything? I am willing to work very hard, but I need direction. (By the way, my sponsor is unresponsive)

[Reply]

Thanks for giving such an informative review of the site. I have been in SFI for 5 years and have achieved the rank of BTL on a consistent basis. Honest reviews are always welcomed. You can tell when you see reviews that really dump on a company that the writer had some grievance with the company. That’s really not an honest review. So I commend you for your review although I do not entirely agree with everything said. It’s your honest opinion and that’s what a review should be.

[Reply]

SFI is honest that not many can make money under its wing. That’s true for all affiliate business. What makes an affiliate succeed is having the right knowledge, wisdom, passion, and skills.
