Is INFINii’s genius money-making scheme still relevant?

INFINii is yet another internet marketing MLM, but this one specializes in drop shipping training (or something that looks like but isn’t quite drop shipping).

They claim you can start making money online without any experience and barely any work involved.

So have I been involved?

This video explains:

 

All good? Let’s continue…

Overview

INFINii is a reincarnation of DS Domination, founded just over 3 years ago by Hitesh Juneja, Jason Rose, and Kevin Hokoana. It teaches members how to get rich via drop shipping. (What they do is actually called arbitrage, but more on that later).

The guy who started DS Domination was an internet marketing genius. He came up with a really smart, new, creative way to make money online without doing any real work. It’s called arbitrage, and it’s basically buying trending products as cheap as you can find them and then reselling them on Amazon and eBay for marked up prices. You pocket the difference and you don’t even have to touch the product.

Online shopping has been booming for years. In 2016, a survey showed that for the first time, consumers were buying more online than they were in brick and mortar shops. [1] I mean, how much of your shopping do you do on Amazon alone?

Internet retail was the place to be for entrepreneurs who wanted to make money online. It was a literal goldmine, just waiting for people like the founders of DS Domination to explore the new frontier and discover gold.

But that was a decade ago. Online shopping is no longer the new frontier – it’s commonplace. Even your grandma does it.

And the money making methods of back then are not the money making methods of today. The first rule of making money online is don’t talk about making money online…because as soon as your method catches on, the market becomes saturated, and you can no longer compete. Time to move on to the next thing.

This is what happened to affiliate marketing, and it’s what happened to dropshipping as well. There are massive corporations with millions to spend on dropshipping – there’s no way some guy in his basement who just discovered Facebook is going to be able to compete.

People realized this with DS Domination, and that’s why they folded and came back to life as INFINii, hoping to rebrand. But it’s just a fresh face for the same old tricks.

How much does INFINii cost?
$49.95-$399.99/month.

There are three membership levels offered by INFINii, depending on how much you really want to learn.

  • Prime ($49.95/month) teaches you basic eCommerce training for Amazon, eBay, and Google.
  • Surge ($149.95/month) teaches you basic eCommerce plus advanced techniques for Amazon and eBay.
  • Excel ($399.99/month) teaches you basic eCommerce, advanced techniques, and how to build up a brand and sell your own products.

Products

The Prime membership teaches you the basics of arbitrage, which is basically dropshipping for people who don’t want to do the work of dropshipping.

It’s pretty simple, actually. You find out what products are trending and find where they’re being sold for the lowest price available online. Then, you list the products on websites like Amazon and eBay for a marked up price. You can even copy the product description word-for-word. When someone purchases your marked up product, you enter their shipping information into the cheaper product order form, so it gets sent directly to them and you pocket the price difference.

Sounds easy enough, but in the long run, it can be pretty impossible to make any good money. Prices are constantly changing and profit margins are incredibly small. You will be spending a lot of time learning how to do this, and the reward might be next to nothing.

The software they provide helps a little. It includes tools and programs to automate the process for you, such as an automated listing creation tool for eBay, an app that shows you what retail items would be profitable on Amazon, and a training program for selling on the Google marketplace.

If you purchase a Surge or Excel membership, you also get a powerful analytic tool that helps you identify upcoming trends so that you know exactly what you should and shouldn’t be trying to sell.

Surge members also get additional Amazon training that helps them source wholesale items and access to the INFINii marketplace.

The higher your membership level, the more bonuses you unlock in the compensation plan.

Opportunity

INFINii’s compensation plan pays out affiliates on 75%, according to them. If this were fully true, it would be pretty amazing, but there’s a catch.

Their hybrid comp plan has 4 ways to earn.

JumpStart Bonuses are one-time bonuses of 25% that you can earn on the initial purchase of your personally sponsored recruits.

Milestones Bonuses and Check Matching Bonuses are also one-time bonuses, but they’re a little more generous. If you’re a Manager or higher, they range from $50-$500, depending on your rank, and you also get a 20% bonus each time one of your personally sponsored recruits reaches higher ranks. If you move up enough, you can access 10% on your high-ranking Level 2 affiliates as well.

Infinity Pay offers a 10% commission on the BV of both your legs, and there’s no minimum BV required to access this commission.

Infinity Pay Check Match gives affiliates matching bonuses on the infinity pay earned by their personal recruits. Depending on your ranking, this matching bonus can range from 5% all the way up to 100%.

If you can move up to the highest ranks and recruit, recruit, recruit, you can make some good money off this comp plan. People already have. Of course, those people make up less than 1% of the affiliates at INFINii, so your chances are slim.

Recap

You’ve heard it from me before – it’s a brilliant money-making scheme, but its time has passed. The bar for getting in and actually raking in good money on dropshipping and arbitrage has been raised too high for your average Joe.

Their income disclosure statement supports this. The average affiliate makes between $500-$2,000…per year.

To make even a sort of decent salary of $60,000 per year, you would have to hit profit margins of around $5,000 per month by reselling Dollar Store products on eBay. In order to get those kinds of profits, you’d have to be selling AT LEAST $40,000-$60,000 worth of resold, marked up products EVERY SINGLE MONTH. It would place you amongst the top 5% eCommerce sellers in the entire world, including global corporations and internet giants.

All that talent and work for just $60k/year?

Look, I’m not a hater of INFINii. But if you like passive income streams, there are much better opportunities out there.

In other words, you might like our training because it teaches the “good life” without 3-way phone calls, home parties, and recruiting your friends on Facebook.
