How does SFI compare to other online businesses?
This Affiliate Apples to Apples:
“When comparing one on-line business with another we need to compare “apples with apples” – in other words there must be other marketing companies like SFI to compare them in a fair way.
One of the problems you will find right away is that most other on-line marketing companies charge a monthly fee. Some companies do this through what they call a “re-sellers fee” you pay a fee each month in order to get commissions when you sell their services or products.
*SFI does not have a monthly service or resellers free
Another method some marketing companies levy a monthly fee is a “forced” Standing Order of product. If you do not pay for an order you forfeit all commissions and in some cases if you stop the forced SO you are considered as quitting the business so you lose your affiliate-ship with them.
*SFI does not have a forced standing order.
Many of the on-line marketing companies will charge “rental” fees for marketing aids like banners, landing pages (sign up web pages). One company I was with you had to buy the sign-up forms (paper forms) to enroll someone, even if you enrolled someone on line you had to fill out a paper form and mail it into the company.
*With SFI most of our marketing aids are free – there are no “paper sign up forms” to purchase”
*The use of the many “power tools” and communication systems that SFI gives us free is second to none.
I could make a comparison report out of this that would take several pages showing the difference between other marketing companies and SFI. But in reality SFI is a unique company and there is no other on-line marketing company like it. ”

“SFI, first and foremost has stood the test of time, and I don’t know of any company that signs up as many people in one day as SFI does.
SFI never charges anything…you get access to world class training on internet marketing for FREE! I have been in Internet Marketing for over 7 years now and confess that I have paid $2000 for courses that teach what you can learn here for free. You just cannot put a price on the value received here.
Plus, I build my team by playing games and bidding on auctions…check out my forum post here describing how I have a team of 160 affiliates in 30 days by playing games at TripleClicks: https://www.sfimg.com/forum/thread?post_id=235273#post-235273″

“You’ve asked an interesting question here and I suppose I’m one of the ones best qualified to answer because I’ve seen and often participated in just about all the others. SFI has them all beat by a country mile and that’s why I’ve pulled out of just about everything else to devote my efforts completely with SFI. Some say ‘don’t put all your eggs in one basket’ but I see SFI as a basket where I can place a lot of eggs without much worry.
“How does SFI compare to other online businesses?”
Many online business are flash in a pan. They show up and make a splash on the launch and then they often seem to fade into obscurity. SFI has stood the test of time on the web by being a growing concern for 17 years. I think that online years compare to bricks and mortar years nearly like dog years relate to human ones and 17×7 over a century.
Online business also tend to concentrate on only one thing at a time. The exceptions like Google, Yahoo and SFI have become diverse because they only added new services after the other(s) were doing well. Now SFI is a number of excellent goodies like pricebenders, tripleclicks, eager zebra, PPA, and ECA rolled together. Add to that the vast assortment of commissionable items and you have a program that you can do almost anything and everything with.
So to answer your question in one final sentence I would have to say – “No other business can compare online to SFI because SFI beats them all the rest, hands down”.”

“Since I have signed up for – and been taken for a ride by – many online businesses, I would say that there is almost no comparison.
There are some good programs out there, please don’t get me wrong. Some cost money and some don’t. Some are easier to succeed at and other aren’t.SFI is unique in it’s own way. It’s really about the only program that I’ve run across that doesn’t require you to buy something or pay a monthly fee.
SFI is constantly making changes and upgrades to it’s multiple programs – and gives them to us for free! It really is amazing to me when I see other affiliates who say “why can’t we have this or that” when in actuality we are already getting an abundance of things we need to succeed.
This includes training, marketing, web hosting, products, games and more. We even get to share the profits. The CEO is more involved in all aspects of the program than I have ever seen and the Support system is outstanding.
I don’t know of any other program on the entire internet that even comes close to giving it’s affiliates so much and I count myself blessed.”
Another Affiliate Gives very good answer from experience:
“To answer your question, I’m going to present the uniqueness of SFI so that you can clearly see the big difference when comparing to other online businesses.
I wasn’t very much active when I first joined SFI. I didn’t understand the business concept and with very little knowledge about the Internet, I have no idea how to sponsor. I didn’t know what I was getting into when I joined. I was attracted with the ad “How to earn a six figure income?” I immediately signed up, because it was free. I remained inactive for several years; nevertheless I maintain my EA status. I was just logging in from time to time to check on the latest SFI news. Meanwhile I have joined other online businesses. In my experience, all of those online businesses require membership fees and you have to buy different kinds of product packages for you to promote online. That didn’t work out for me. I kept logging in once in a while at SFI and I saw gradual but significant changes with the creation of TripleClicks. That made me curious to find out more until I found myself consistently logging in at the SFI affiliate center.
Now in my 13th year with SFI, I’m well-pleased and honored to share the following uniqueness of SFI:
- SFI stand above other online businesses in regards to network marketing in a true sense.
Network marketing is very definitely a relationship business. In business sales and revenue matters. Money make the world turn and in order to get money, you need sales. However, sales is not everything. Sales may just go that far but for relationship, it goes a long, long way.
Through my experience with SFI, I have learned that relationship building is all about quality and not quantity. In my dealings with my team members, I always put emphasis on providing value, to help others more than just the ‘make money online’ part. SFI provides the platform to achieve building relationship that goes a long, long way.
This is a unique experience for me which I couldn’t find from other online businesses. Most of the business opportunities out there are focus only on making money.
- Build friendship through SFI Forum
I have seen often times when someone announces that he/she is leaving SFI for whatever reason, most of us would say don’t go. Most of us experience and feel a sense of belonging here in SFI. A sense of belonging increases meaningfulness of life. It’s very encouraging to have a firsthand experience of the friendliness of affiliates helping others in their challenges with business and life.
- Ask SC provides questions and answers about building your SFI business. SFI business owners share their experiences providing important tips to the SFI community.
- Other communication tools such as a2a and SFIM chat further encourage all SFI business owners to connect and share their expertise. We can choose and add friends through these unique tools to share our knowledge and also to edify one another.
- We can also have fun while doing our business through the EZ games.
Our SFI President and CEO Mr. Gery Carson is a pioneer in putting together real home business opportunity for people from all spectrum of life and building long lasting relationship in SFI community worldwide. This is unprecedented.
Can you find from other online businesses that offer everything you need to drive your business to success? With SFI you control your pace of growing your business. I’m very glad today that despite facing insurmountable challenges, I didn’t give up. ”
Another Affiliate Answers Question:
“Good question. Why we need to join only SFI and not any other online business? The basic reason is SFI is a unique business and stands apart from other online businesses in many ways.
There are many differences, let me enumerate them below:
1. The SFI (Strong Future International) business is one among the oldest surviving business. It started in 1998 with one product. Now it sells about 80,000+ products online.
2. Most of the online businesses sell their own products but do not allow you to sell your products. SFI sells its product on TripleClicks.com and also allow you sell your own products via TripleCLicks and ECA (e-Commerce Associate Program).
3. SFI offers you 45% Direct Commissions on your sales and sales by your personally sponsored affiliates which is among the highest in the world.
4. SFI is a Legacy Income based that means you can transfer it to your family member after building it up at any time. This provision is generally not permitted in other online programs.
5. Most of the online programs vanish or change to another business whereas SFI been online for the last 17 years and will continue to be always online.
6. Most of the online businesses pay you for your work but SFI pays you to many generations of your downline depending upon your Leadership Rank.
7. The best support system is available to all SFI affiliate through Forum and Support Tickets 24x7x365 days which is unseen in other online businesses. ”
