My Six Figure Mentors Review Snippet:

If you follow the SFM training, you will gain some decent online marketing skills.

There’s also a business system to make launching your websites as simple as possible.

The downside is the cost.

It’s an expensive program when compared to the best providers in the same space (my top alternatives at the bottom of the full review).

Pros

  • Broad training
  • Business system
  • Support

Cons

  • Training not deep enough
  • Cost
  • Pressure to upgrade

Are you currently thinking about joining the Six Figure Mentors, like I was a while back?

Maybe you’re struggling to decide…is this a genuine online opportunity?..

…or is the Six Figure Mentors a total scam?

There is no shortage of coverage on the internet about both the Six Figure Mentors, and the Digital Experts Academy.

Digital Experts Academy is the most advanced part of the online program created by the two founders Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek.

But What’s The Real Six Figure Mentors Story?

six figure mentors review

Over the last five years or so, I’ve signed-up to, and tried out, over twenty different online opportunities.

It’s cost me both time and money…way too much of both to think about really.

This review is simply my take on the Six Figure Mentors, having been right through the system as a fully paid up Elite member, and Digital Experts Academy Gold member.

I hope it helps you in making your own decision.

Here’s the deal:

The Levels of Six Figure Mentors Membership:

Let’s look at these in a little more depth:

Not much more to say about this level of membership than that really.

While you can earn affiliate commissions at each level, this is the first level where they start to get pretty big.

My Six Figure Mentors Experience

six figure mentors and digital experts academy website header

I have to say I found the first few days of my Student Membership pretty very annoying.

You get absolutely bombarded with relentless upgrade opportunities and that gets more than a little bit irritating.

You know the stuff…

…every upgrade is offered at an apparently discounted rate for a prescribed amount of time, with a digital countdown to add to the drama.

Not a great start to be fair, but very much part-and-parcel of buying most digital products online these days.

It did get better though, just as soon as I decided to ignore the early-bird discount opportunities and to make up my own mind about if and when I would upgrade.

Even at this early stage, what really intrigued me about the Six Figure Mentors opportunity was the fact that it is also a high-ticket affiliate program in itself, and the ability to earn while you learn.

But what does this…

a high-ticket affiliate program in itself’, and the ability to earn while you learn.

…actually mean?

There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about this online.

I’ve read quite a few Six Figure Mentors reviews.

Many of them say that within this program, all you are learning to promote is the Six Figure Mentors and Digital Experts Academy programs themselves, and that you aren’t really free to apply this to a business of your choice.

Now that’s either a huge and fundamental misunderstanding, or it’s a downright lie!

What it means, is simply this:

The training itself aims to provide you with the skill-set to market on the internet and earn either affiliate commissions should you be marketing someone else’s products, or straight up sales profits if you’re marketing your own products.

Combine this training with the fact that both the Six Figure Mentors, and Digital Experts Academy, offer members the opportunity to affiliate market their own product ranges, with high retail values, you have a genuine opportunity to earn while you learn.

And you can earn significantly with the Six Figure Mentors affiliate program…and if you choose to, also with the Digital Experts Academy affiliate program.

But, in mitigation of the online reviewers who try and paint the SFM as a bit of a scam…

…I don’t think the SFM do themselves any favours in that they do try and lead new members into marketing the SFM and DEA straight out of the blocks.

And the problem I have with this is that it’s a seriously tough niche to get any real traction in, seriously tough.

Before going any further…

…if you’re not absolutely certain what affiliate marketing is and how it all works, check out my article on this site covering exactly that.

Bottom Line?

The Six Figure Mentors and Digital Experts Academy is about teaching you how to be an affiliate marketer and online business owner, while learning you can choose to…

  • Affiliate market the Six Figure Mentors / Digital Experts Academy products and services;
  • Affiliate market someone else’s products and services;
  • Market your own products and services;
  • Do all three of the above.

If you carry on through all of the Six Figure Mentors membership levels and decide to move on into Digital Experts Academy, aside from this membership upgrade costing you a ton of money…

…you will also be taught, by industry specialists ImportXperts, how to set-up and run your own online importing business, such as an Amazon FBA business.

The best part about joining the SFM, for me, was this:

  • I wanted to learn how to be an affiliate marketer…and I wanted to learn quickly;
  • Like most people starting out, I didn’t have my own product to market, nor at the time did I have anyone else’s to affiliate market;
  • I wanted to earn high-ticket commissions and not be slaving away making 100 sales all for a couple of hundred bucks profit;
  • Last but definitely not least, I wanted to start earning from day one…well…month one anyway.

And the worst part:

  • The affiliate training turned out to be nowhere near deep enough in some critical areas;
  • The high price;
  • I really didn’t appreciate the high-pressure selling of the optional upgrades during the first few weeks of my membership;
  • New members get encouraged to promote the SFM itself, rather then being encouraged to get into a niche of their own.

My Six Figure Mentors Review – Wrapping It Up

Making money with the Six Figure Mentors and Digital Experts Academy is absolutely possible, but you will need to apply yourself to the training in order to reap the rewards. Like anything really.

If you level up above ‘Essential’ Membership it starts to get very expensive, there is no getting away from that.

Also, I don’t think promoting the SFM product range itself is the right way to go for most new affiliate marketers.

But if you are an experienced affiliate marketer, and believe you would be comfortable promoting the Six Figure Mentors and Digital Experts Academy product range, well…

…high paying affiliate programs are extremely hard to come by, but this is one.

My Experience: 2.5 /5

Recommendation:

At the initial stages, the training is fit for purpose, but in my opinion only up to the level of ‘Essential’ Membership.

For the cost of the course material that’s on offer above ‘Essential’, there’s significantly better out there.

If I was starting out in affiliate marketing right now, with no prior experience…

…I would be signing-up with someone else.

There Are Better Affiliate Training Programs Out There!

Okay, not that many, but there are a few.

These are my two most highly rated affiliate courses right now.

Both of these programs will teach you their tried and tested steps of how to build and grow successful affiliate sites.

Authority Hacker: Authority Hacker’s The Authority Site System is bang up to date affiliate training with a focus on niche selection, building out new authority sites, content creation and building layers of traffic sources.

The goal of The Authority Site System is to get you to a point where your authority site is earning you in the region of $2k to $10k per month…what they refer to as a “Stage 1 Authority Site”.

Once you’re making that kind of monthly income, you can level up to their flagship program: Authority Hacker Pro.

Affiliate Lab: SEO legend Matt Diggity’s outstanding training program is of rare quality and focused on getting you the results you want as quickly as possible.

This course is packed to the rafters with cutting-edge affiliate training that you won’t find elsewhere.

You can find out more about both Authority Hacker and Affiliate Lab, plus one other highly recommended affiliate course in my dedicated post all about exactly where to find the best affiliate marketing training.
