six figure mentors review

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 scam?

As you’ve no doubt seen, there is no shortage of coverage on the internet about the both the Six Figure Mentors, and the Digital Experts Academy, which is the most advanced part of the total online program created by the two founders Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek.

But What’s The Real Six Figure Mentors Story?

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 for any length of time 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 can help you in making your own decision.

Here’s the deal:

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

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

Access to the members-only site, which includes a step-by-step Online Business Success Module. Recording of the SFM Founder’s Visionary Call where they share advanced insights.

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

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 annoying.

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

Not a great start to be fair, but very much part-and-parcel of buying most digital product 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 got me excited 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 a few Six Figure Mentors reviews online.

Many of them say that within this program, all you are learning how 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 provides 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, the Digital Experts Academy affiliate program, from the very first few of months!

It means you are equipped with the knowledge, materials and products to begin generating sales. It’s a logical first step for any beginner to online marketing and a fantastic additional new revenue stream for existing business owners.

Before going any further…

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

Bottom Line?

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

  1. Affiliate market the Six Figure Mentors / Digital Experts Academy products and services
  2. Affiliate market someone else’s products and services
  3. Market your own products and services
  4. 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, 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 high price.
  • I really didn’t appreciate the high-pressure selling of the optional upgrades during the first few weeks of my membership.

My Conclusion

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.

It is very expensive, there’s no getting away from that.

But, since joining and realising how quickly it’s possible to get out of the gates affiliate marketing the Six Figure Mentors’ and Digital Experts Academy’s own high-ticket affiliate programs, the price hasn’t bothered me too much.

High paying affiliate programs are hard to come by, but this is one.

My Experience: 7/10 (the cost and initial high pressure selling are the main detractors)

Recommendation:

It’s what got me making money in affiliate marketing, so yes, I recommend the Six Figure Mentors and Digital Experts Academy…

but

…in all honesty, if I was starting out in affiliate marketing right now, with no prior experience…

…I think I would do one of the following;

Either join the SFM only up to the level of  ‘Essential’ membership for the first twelve to eighteen months,

or;

I’d join a less expensive program to learn affiliate marketing with.

Right now that would probably be WealthyAffiliate, where what’s on offer is very similar to, and a fraction of the cost of the SFM and DEA (without the high-ticket affiliate program but still offering generous recurring affiliate commissions of their own).

Further down the line…

Once I was levelling up my affiliate marketing skills, getting success in driving internet traffic…

…and assuming I wanted to be in the online marketing niche…

…I would then look at buying into the higher levels of SFM and DEA memberships, simply because of their big payout affiliate programs.
