Welcome to this In Depth Stiforp Review
Before we get started I want to make abundantly clear that I am NOT an affiliate with Stiforp in any way, shape, or form. So you can be sure that when you read this you really are getting a 3rd party perspective on what Stiforp is and what it really offers the marketplace.
Stiforp appears to be promoting semi-customizable internet marketing tools for MLM distributors, from autoresponders, to capture pages, to generic scripts, and the list goes on, all for a fraction of the cost most of these tools would cost on their own. Their entire tool suite goes for $9.95 a month, which is half the cost of just the autoresponder alone when trying to get all of these tools on your own.
They also have flash videos set up for reps to use, but they’re all YouTube videos. None of them are being hosted by the company itself, which can spell huge problems if for some reason YouTube has a hair up their collective butt one day and they find some obscure reason in their terms and conditions to cancel that account. However, I can also see how that is keeping the cost of everything as low as it is. No hosting costs, as that can get insanely expensive for a company, but that move certainly doesn’t come without risks.
I did catch a YouTube video of a woman that goes through all the tools, and one that really caught my eye was the conference call bridge system that can fit up to 100 people on the call.
How You Get Paid in Stiforp
Stiforp uses a 2×14 forced matrix that I’m not even going to try to describe here. For the simpler, more direct methods of getting paid, you can actually get a $25 fast start bonus for each new paid member you bring on, plus $2 for someone brought in from someone you brought in (2nd Generation,) and $1 for every new member that a 2nd generation person brings in (3rd-generation. )
Claims Made by Stiforp
Earn up to $8191.50 without referring ANYONE! - Research has shown this claim to be thoroughly deceptive from people who actually joined and got out. They were also very specific with the events that took place. NEVER expect, in ANY company, to make any significant money without doing any work to get it. Period.
Automated system does 95% of the work for you! – But what is that 5% that you have to do? None of what you really need to do is mentioned in the marketing tools, ever.
Already in 90 Countries – Okay, that’s pretty cool.
Earn a check just for joining Stiforp! – Let’s be real here, how big can your joining check be for a $9.95/month product?
Typical Buzzwords in Stiforp’s Presentations
After being in the MLM industry for a few years you begin to pick out the different buzzwords thrown around all over the place by different companies, all the ones that can’t be verified in any real way. So let’s go through some of the ones I saw, and the different ways you can hopefully verify that what these people are saying is actually true:
“Fastest growing company” – I cringe every time I hear this, because literally everyone and their mother uses this claim. You want to see how big a company is REALLY growing? Go to one of their regional events and see how many butts they have in the seats. If you can barely fill a hotel conference room after almost a year in the business, the claim is BS. If, however, you have enough people going to where the company owners have to actually reserve a spot at a convention center or a stadium to hold all of those people that are coming from literally all over the world… well, then you have legs to stand on at that point. Here would be a good example of a fast growing company.
“Debt Free Company” – Who gives a shit? It’s great for peace of mind, but as far as it being in a marketing message, no one cares. Period.
“Proven track record” – Most every company I have ever seen, when they really have a proven track record of success, they wave that record around like a national flag, showing it off for the world to see. However, when trying to see what that proven track record was for Stiforp, I came out empty handed. Also, how big of a success record can you really have when you’re just a year old? To be honest, the only ones I have seen at this point to have huge success and growth in a company in less than a year of opening the door are these guys here.
My Experience to Being Exposed to Some of Stiforp’s Promotion Tools
Many of the capture pages I have seen here seem to be extremely generic, and widely varying in quality (though when you’re trying to create material for just about every MLM out there I can understand this.) They look like good, professional capture pages as far as appearance goes. All of them carried a very generic message of how joining their business will get them out of the rat race and into a life of abundance, However, there are some of these capture pages that are a little more targeted towards specific groups of people, like single moms, people in a travel MLM (or greatly enjoy travel,) etc. The presentations on these different pages range between 45 seconds to 8 minutes.
One interesting thing is that they have a video spokesperson come out on the bottom of the page and start talking. Some are generic, but I found one that aims more toward giving information about a health & wellness business. It’s good that they are branching out, because being too generic in your marketing can seriously blunt its effectiveness.
Stiforp and Their BBB Record
As of writing this article on October 10, 2012 I found absolutely no information on this company with the BBB. To me, this sends up HUGE red flags, especially when they’ve been doing business for about a year now.
Final Thoughts on Stiforp
At first glance, as a tool suite it would definitely be worth the money to have some of these services for your business. More and more MLM is starting to move toward the internet and something like this is really necessary in the evolution of MLM.
However, as a standalone income opportunity in and of itself, there have been problems with getting the pay plan demystified and decrypted. What happens is that most people never see the $8191.50 advertised on the site (especially if you never recruit a single person, like the ad claims you can.)
But I will say that when put in the hands of someone who really knows what to do with them, these tools really can help make a killing in someone’s MLM business, all for a fraction of the cost of any outside service. The best way to look at Stiforp is as a toolbox as opposed to an income opportunity. The tools that they have available for use in the back end, like the autoresponder and the conference call bridge are damn awesome in my opinion, especially for only $9.95 a month.
However, I do have to ask a few questions as far as how effective the capture pages are in converting.
First off, has the creator of these capture pages actually studied sales psychology? Have they built a successful internet marketing company outside of this company that sells these capture pages, regardless of how affordable they are? More importantly, have they ever had success in helping other people build THEIR internet marketing business? Most important of all, do they actually TEACH new people how to send traffic to their sales funnels so they can get the leads, so they can convert them into sales?
After digging into what Stiforp offers I noticed that there is no training of any kind on how to get people to these sales funnels. That is one massive omission from the system that will absolutely kill any hopes of success not just in Stiforp, but in any internet marketing or MLM business.
My final thought is this: if you want solid tools to use for your business after attracting people onto your team, such as autoresponders, team conference bridges, and all that cool stuff, then I recommend getting the tool suite that Stiforp offers.
P.S. As good as Stiforp’s tools may be, if you want to have the real success that Stiforp and the other companies keep raving about, then you need to know EXACTLY what to do to attract an army of hungry buyers to you, from people who are succeeding in internet marketing, who are in the trenches doing what we do, and will open their entire playbook to you.
