The Straight Skinny On Eyeearn / SFI

Mar 20, 2008
So you're thinking about starting your own online business. You have been surfing the net looking for a "good opportunity," and the name of SFI Marketing has popped up in your search engine results on more than one occasion.

Yeah, it's kinda hard to miss us. SFI Marketing Group is the world's largest affiliate marketer, with multiple programs and over TEN MILLION members worldwide. Yep, you read that right, ten million.

With that kinda power, SFI tends to be rather visible on the net!

Question # 1 : "Is SFI the real deal, and just how much is this get-rich-quick 'opportunity' gonna set me back, anyways?"

Fair question, so let me give you a straightforward answer.

First, let's get something straight right at the start: SFI is NOT a 'get-rich-quick' scheme. It's a legitimate business with a proven 10 year, wealth-producing track record. SFI Marketing Group is also a member in good standing with the Nebraska Better Business Bureau. SFI / EyeEarn is Free to join and test the waters.

Question # 2 : "What about all those ads I've seen talking about how SFI Affiliates are all getting these astronomical paychecks each month? I've even seen pictures of some of these SFI Affiliates proudly showing off some VERY large paychecks from SFI! Is that all a bunch of bull or what?"

Nope. It's all true. SOME SFI Affiliates are indeed receiving fantastic paychecks each and every month. And SOME SFI Affiliates are still building their business and are receiving paychecks of just a couple of hundred dollars each month. And SOME SFI Affiliates will never make a dime with SFI...ever. Sad, but true.

SFI is a business "opportunity," not a "guarantee" of wealth and success. That's also the truth.

Let me illustrate what I'm getting at with a few examples.

Why is it that some students always seem to fail semester after semester, while other students almost always get straight A+ report cards?

Or, just take a look around your own hometown and neighborhood. Have you ever noticed any "For Sale" or "For Rent" signs out in front of where a small business once used to be? What about "Going Out Of Business Sale" signs? Yep, we've all seen 'em.

On the other side, what about that guy who started out with just a small shop that is now a large, high-tech factory employing hundreds of people? He's now driving around in a chauffeured limo, and flying to meetings all over the world in his own private jet!

Or what about that seemingly 'average' guy who just happened to have a "bright idea" one day, and was somehow able to turn it into a million bucks! Was he just lucky or what?

Why is it that some people, and some businesses, succeed, while others seem destined for failure?

The point I am trying to make here is that there are MULTIPLE reasons why some people, and some business ventures, succeed, and others fail. The same is true with your SFI business. People have different talents, different resources of time and money, different knowledge, different contacts, different determination, willpower, and drive, different personalities, different circumstances, and on and on.

The happy news, however, is that success with SFI is, to a great extent, MOSTLY IN YOUR HANDS!

IF... IF, that is, you are willing to INVEST in that success. We are talking TIME AND MONEY here, folks.

Question # 3 : " Time and Money ? you said the SFI / EyeEarn opportunity was FREE"

OK, you got me there but answer me this, my friend: Is there ANY business where you don't have to make an investment of time and money in order to succeed? If someone is giving away free money, please let me know so I can go get in line! And if you can find someone to start, fund, manage and run your business at absolutely no cost to you, then more power to you. My guess is that you might as well go play the lottery or head for the casino! Oh, right, THAT costs time and money, too...

And, with your question, you actually just hit the nail right on the head as to why SOME SFI Affiliates fail: they are looking for something for nothing! And nothing is exactly what they will get.

The right question, the one you should be asking, is: "How MUCH time and how MUCH money?"

And, of course, I've got your answer: "How MUCH success do you want? And how BIG a paycheck do you want from SFI?"

And here's the really sweet part of the deal: with SFI, YOU are totally in control of how much time, and how much money, you invest. That's right. There is no "requirement" for you to spend anything or do anything. You can build your SFI business AT YOUR OWN PACE, i.e., according to YOUR financial resources, and according to YOUR time and circumstances.

For example, to put this web page on the internet cost me both money and time - money for a domain registration and advertising, as well as an investment in time and effort to construct and load the page to the server, and to write this article. But I have already had enough new signups to more than justify the investment.

This all explains why the ten million SFI Affiliates around the world are each at their own level of success. Different investments, different time frames, different levels of reward. As a general rule, you pretty much get out of it what you put in to it, just like most things in life.

There are THREE basic steps to success with SFI:

1. After you join, become an "Executive Affiliate" as soon as possible. There is just no way around this one. It's not all that hard to accomplish.

2. Personally sponsor SFI Affiliates. This means you must advertise the SFI opportunity and products, and sign people up through your marketing efforts.

3. Help your PSA's (Personally Sponsored Affiliates) to "go Exec" just like you. As you do this, you will quickly become an SFI "Team Leader," and as you build your team, you will open the door to those great paychecks you are looking for!

That's it. Those are the "basics" of success with SFI. It really is that simple.

And sure, there are a lot of details involved in marketing and in other aspects of the business, and there is a learning curve to master. There is great training available on the SFI website for all SFI Affiliates. Some, of course, advance and learn more quickly than others, and still others just refuse to do anything. One wonders what they were thinking when they first signed-up to launch their SFI business. I mean, suppose you had a 'brick and mortar' store, but you spent no money to stock the shelves with products, and you never bothered too even go unlock the doors for customers. Doesn't take an Einstein to figure out the fate of such an enterprise...

For me, it all continues to be a lot of fun and a challenge. I ENJOY my SFI and EyeEarn business! Life is too short to waste on things you hate doing! With SFI and EyeEarn, I set my own hours, and I am my own boss. There is no commute anymore, and I love working at home and on the internet. My SFI business is steadily growing.

EyeEarn is just one of the great programs offered through SFI Marketing Group. You can make money from them all.
