FireFan is a sports app network marketing company that connects fans on game day and lets them play mini games where you can win cash and prizes.
A mobile app that lets you bet on your favorite sport teams and interact with other fans?
Seems interesting enough.
And you make money when your friends join?
Yup, and that’s exactly why FireFan is getting so much buzz right now. While they’re technically not a fantasy app, you still earn rewards based on your correct predictions.
So have I been involved?
This video explains:
All good? Let’s continue…
In 2016, United Games developed and launched an app that allows you to make real-time sport bets right from your smartphone.
So why all the hype for just another fantasy sports app?
Well, it’s not quite a fantasy app. You compete against an online community of your friends, family, and celebrities in real time during a game. You answer questions and make predictions and are rewarded based on the results of the sporting event.
As you watch a sports game on TV, the FireFan app will prompt you with questions that you can answer with your predictions. Based on how well you compete against the others determines how much your winnings are.
Similar to sports betting in Vegas, the more probable outcomes yield less reward than if you predicted an unlikely outcome that actually ended up happening.
For example, if you predicted your team runs it back for a touchdown on the initial kickoff, and it really happened, you would earn a huge reward. If you predicted that your team runs it back to the 20 yard line (a much more probable outcome), your reward would be much smaller. Make sense?
They claim they are “not a gambling app” but rather a real-time interactive sports game app.
So far, the app will cover sporting events in the NFL, MLB, NHL, MLS, and International Soccer Leagues. More sports are in the works.
The app is free to download right to your iOS or Android smartphone.
After registering with FireFan, you can begin answering questions and making predictions to earn points or tokens. Your tokens can be used to enter certain contests and unlock certain features in the app.
When you rack up enough tokens, you can use them for fan apparel, gift cards, electronics, and even tickets to sporting events.
There are in-app purchases that are available, but you can earn free tokens just by watching the advertisements during the game you’re watching. And of course, you earn tokens by winning competitions against your friends.
But wait, there’s more. FireFan allows you to make money online as an affiliate, where you can get paid for every person you bring on board. But is it legit?
Apparently, there isn’t a comp plan.
There was at one point, but they scratched it.
According to a user, “As you play the game, you earn tickets for how often you play and those tickets can be turned in for gift cards, electronics, game tickets and stuff like that, so you aren’t being rewarded with stuff based on how well you play the game but on how often you played. Therefore, anyone who likes the game and plays often has a chance to turn in their tickets for some cool stuff. The affiliate side of this app was just an ingenious way to advertise their app and was well received, otherwise you probably wouldn’t have heard of Firefan unless the company spent millions of dollars to advertise, which they didn’t have to do because they instead chose to use affiliate marketing.”
Their comp plan went something like this:
Low cost buy-in fee.
This gets you in the system as an affiliate and allows you to start earning money referring other people using your unique referral links and codes.
After that, you must pay a monthly fee of $9.99 to maintain your affiliate status.
Each person that you personally refer is added to your downline or “line” and you earn commissions based on:
1- how active they are in the app
2- how many tokens they acquire or buy
3- how many people they refer
This is a pretty typical comp plan structure for a multi-level marketing company.
You can also earn bonus checks if you have people in your downline also earning commissions from being an affiliate, starting at 20%.
For example, if you have someone in your downline that you personally referred (tier 1) and they earn $100 this month in affiliate commissions, you would get a bonus check of 20%, or $20. Just from that one person. See the potential here?
Bonus checks pay 20% for your tier 1 affiliates, 10% for tier 2 affiliate commissions, and 5% for tier 3 and tier 4 affiliate commissions.
As an affiliate, you would want to recruit people in your downline that would be active users in the app, and you would want to offer training resources to help your downline succeed at recruiting.
Might be MLM 101 tips, but would be a game changer if you’re looking to go the affiliate route with this company.
FireFan is going where no app has gone before, combining sports betting with an MLM comp plan. If you’ve ever wanted to get paid for your sports trivia knowledge, now could be your chance.
So far, they have pretty good reviews and you could probably make some decent money if you figured out a way to get fellow sports enthusiasts on board.
Just don’t expect to quit your day job and work from home anytime soon.
From a passive income point-of-view, the company is still very young and will probably face legal allegations, as most sports betting companies and MLMs have to endure.
I’m not saying they’re going to fall off, but statistics would indicate that it would be rare if a company like this is still standing in 5 years. Too harsh?
While I used to be a 1%-er in a hot MLM, I have changed my ways. Since then, I have quadrupled my income, traveled the world and now make more money than most doctors and lawyers.
In other words, you might like our training because of social proof. And by that I mean other people like it, a lot.
