Today I have created another review for you, this time the Six Figure Mentors Review from the Digital marketers Jay Kubasek and Stuart Ross.
Name: The Six Mentors
Founders: Jay Kubasek and Stuart Ross in 2011
Training and Support: 4
Price: different memberships level from $29.95- $20 000
Ranking Together: 2 out of 5
For who is this program for?
The program is best for the co-founders and the highest 1-5% Affiliate Marketers.
It is hardly going to be suited for beginners. Unless you are ready to make a huge investment. ( 10k+)
If you would like to find out more about one of the co-owners of SFM, Jay Kubassek, you can see he was co-owner of scam companies in the past, called CARBON copy Pro, and CARBON copy marketing, and he was as well part of SCAM company Liberty League International.
Interestingly enough there is no information about those companies be found on the internet anymore.
The program is claiming to teach you how to turn to be earning online by promoting other people’s products= Affiliate Marketing. In the reality, it has as well signs of MLM marketing program. Why?
Because, you are going to promote THEIR product and, your upper line is going to earn a commission always you are making purchase.
Therefore you are going to need to HIRE new people in your “business” in order to make money.
While in Affiliate Marketing, you often don’t need to even buy the product you are going to be promoting.
And to compare the commissions, Affiliate marketing can offer you 50, 70, or even 90% commission, while with MLM you’ll go barely over 50%.
(SFM commission are between 5-40%, depending on your memberships and the product you are going to sale)
That note was to be meant to clarified the business model you are about to jump if you sign up with SFM. But let’s see what that program really looks like.
Once you sign up with them, you will have access to their easy to follow training where you are about to learn how to start your very first online business.
Next to that, they are going to provide you with access to the exclusive private community members, plus you will be assigned with one of their “coaches”.
According to SFM your background, does not really matter.
You can learn the skills needed for creating an online business.
So far, all sounds great, right?
Let me show it to you, if it is really so simple and if there are not any white spaces.
Steps you are going to take with SFM:
1. Sign Up, providing your Email
After you are going to sign up, most likely after watching some of their ad( I have watched as a first one Dan Holloway’s video, Dan’s one of the SFM affiliates running his own site).
When you are done with watching or reading, you are going to leave your email and you sign up.
2. 7-Day Online Course
When SFM will collect your email, you might expect to receive their 7-day online course.
Below is an example of a video I received among the first.
It is from one of their “students” Dan Holloway.
3.Your “first” membership
When this daily session of videos is done, you are going to be asked to become their “student” meaning your membership is going to become paid.
As their “student, you are going to be paying $29.95 one time.
To be honest with you, this membership is not going to provide you with any more value except these videos, what you actually got already.
P.S. Here was the moment for me, where I didn’t go further with SFM, but rather joined Wealthy Affiliate instead.
The eye-opener for me was ironically enough, another WA member’s review -;)
However, I am glad I did this turnaround at this point, as it could easily end up for me much worse, and I could have ended up paying much more down the road.
Let’s get back to the actual review.
I mentioned this is their “first” membership.
Here you can see them all below ( as of in August 2020).
4. Contact with their “coach” and offers for new memberships
When you are showing interest in continuing with SFM after those videos, you are suggested to have a talk with one of their “coaches”.
He/she is going to answer some questions you might have, will give you some tips and hints on starting your journey, and most importantly he/she is going to like you for an “upgrade” or, in other words, for an upsell.
Please one reminder from me, from this moment on, I am sharing knowledge shared on the internet or out of experience other ex or present members of SFM, as I did quit after the request to become their “student”.
However, I have tried to capture the facts and less my personal feelings.
If you thought, that the ELITE membership is the last part of their schema, you were wrong.
Because once you reach ELITE, you will be introduced with the Digital Experts Academy( DEA), stating you will gain access to more training, tools, and support.
In my opinion, here it starts the real “upsell hunt”. And here is the reason why just the top affiliate marketers are going to earn a huge money.
- Silver ($2,499) – “e-learning” course
- Gold ($4,999) – 12-month coaching program and 3-day Bootcamp
- Platinum ($9,999) – 3-day workshop, “professional website” with social media profiles and brand building training
- Black ($19,999) – ticket to an annual “mastermind retreat”
As you can see this is high-tickets selling affiliate marketing.
Whereas the DEA is working integrated with SFM and unfortunately enough has no real retainable products or services, you can earn money by selling the DEA membership.
Earnings are 40% for you and 10% for your upline.
1. The idea of what Affiliate Marketing is all about
I can also rewrite it for the idea of how you can make money online. For that purpose, is the 7-Day video online course a great tool. In case you are completely starter with ZERO experience, as I was back in 2018 when I joined(almost) the SFM, then you will really appreciate this info covered in those videos.
2. Real People experiencing success
It is very important that any kind of business especially an online business, has some kind of proof, right? Otherwise, no one would believe it is working. SFM is sharing the stories of successful and REAL people.
The only problem with that is, that the amount of people who succeed and who fail is not in the right relation.
There are numerous companies, who are referring to fake reviews. Unfortunately, the internet can be a dangerous place. That’s one of the reasons I have created this and many other reviews -;)
3. Web Support
The response of the “coach” is timely ok. That means if you would experience some technical issues, or you just have some questions related to the training you will in most cases get a quick response. I am not sure, how it is with their further stages, but I am guessing when you are paying them more, they will maintain at least the same level as I had back then, so the STUDENT( basic) level.
It is not always guaranteed, that you will be instantly helped. I had to wait unexpectedly long for help when experiencing issues when using Swagbucks.
This is very simple to describe.
Basically, everything valuable (except the first 7 videos) would cost you more money.
As you could see earlier, the amount of money you are going to spend is huge.
If you want to get the whole training SFM offers, you have to prepare to spend around $20 000.
By the way, the same valued knowledge, but for a much lower price, you will get at Wealthy Affiliate.
2. “Lock-in” program
You will not receive any knowledge on how to build a business out of your passion, rather then you’d be taught how to sell their SFM and DEA memberships.
Second of all, as you proceed with the program, you will be entitled to use “just their suggested” tools.
As you will go deeper with Affiliate Marketing or any kind of home-based online business, you will discover that you’d need many additional resources.
You would like to stay free to choose which resources they are going to be.
3. No Value provided until you pay
I mean, when they decided not to include the earning opportunity with the first stages, there should be the reason for it.
But here is not. In my eyes, it looks like they just want to get more money out of you.
Unlike Wealthy Affiliate, where you are able to start be earning even as a FREE member.
Is The Six Figure Mentors SCAM?
Now, I wouldn’t call it SCAM, because there is some legit training, and there are people who are earning huge money, however, those are the owners, or the 1-5% top affiliates.
The biggest problem for any starter is the UPSELLS.
I am not sure how about you but form it was just impossible to invest $20,000 when I was starting out and would really consider if this is worth it even now.
On top of that, the small voice in the back of my head is keeping asking, WHY THE HELL THEY DIDN’T REVEAL ALL THE THINGS AT THE BEGINNING?
Especially when they claim to create value and change people’s lives.
Why am I suppose to pay them each time more and more, when I want to know at the beginning.
Therefore, I would not recommend this program.
On top of that, if you are going to join through this link, you’ll get 2 EXTRA BONUSES FOR FREE.
What I love about WA is that you don’t have to invest huge money when starting out, yet you will get very relevant, comprehensive, and thorough training, including weekly( recorded seminars).
You will have access to a like-minded community and you can even directly contact the CEO’s and you will get your answers within 48 hrs.
If you by any chance, stop liking the WA benefits, you can leave any time you want.
With the option to keep your website. (If you move it to another hosting service of course)
Personally, I have seen a lot of SCAMS or scam looks like platform, or money dragging platforms out there.
But never found such a place like WA. The founders provide 15 years of VALID online experiences and the community is acting like a big happy family, you can check it here by yourself for FREE.
(For the first 7 days you will even get PREMIUM access for FREE).
I hope I could provide you, with some valuable information within my The Six Figure Mentors Review.
My with it is to don’t let people make the same mistake I (almost)did. It can help the undecided staters to save a huge amount of money and eventually it can bring you, if you are searching as well, to the pad, that can change your life for real.
Whatever pad you will choose, I wish you a lot of fo success.
P.S.S.: If you like the article, please do me a favor and share it with people you think might find it valuable as well as you hopefully did.
Great thanks in advance.
