Digital Freedom Movement Review (Affiliate Marketing Or Disguised MLM ?)

Digital Freedom Movement Review - Featured Image

Welcome to my Digital Freedom Movement Review. I want to congratulate you for doing due diligence on this product before buying in. It is always important to do thorough research before committing your money to any product.


Before you continue reading this review, you might want to hear this:

Apparently, this is a biased review according to the so-called Digital Freedom Members. Ok everyone is entitled to their opinion and I respect that. Here is the truth though…

No information contained in this review is made up!

I did my research. I even posted DFM videos from Vimeo.

I have nothing against DFM. In fact, I have contacted them to give me the true picture of what DFM is all about because it seems things keep changing with them. That’s a great thing…

I am still waiting…

So while I’m waiting for the information I urge you to proceed with caution and not allow yourself to be biased by my opinion.


My first look at Digital Freedom Movement raises some question. Is it an Affiliate Marketing or MLM in disguise? 

There are confusing features about this company, that  I intend to share with you. 

Here is the BBB (Better Business Bureau) report (Alert) on Digital Freedom Movement


What Is Digital Freedom Movement?

An Affiliate Marketing training platform that automates 90% of the workload for the newest person so that they only have to focus on 10%

They claim to be a unique company because they have created a “Super Bot” that tracks all your leads who have come across your affiliate marketing ad but did not take any action. Great!

The Super Bot is said to possess the power to rechannel your potential leads back into the DFM “Super Funnel” so that you will eventually get your leads to convert. Sounds cool, doesn’t it?

These guys say they spent over $17,000 in software per year to make sure that their links get clicked on. Impressive!


The brains behind the Digital Freedom Movement are Kelland Chaffee, Luisa “Weez” Abela, and Mark Wilson.


Digital Freedom Movement Membership Fee

To join DFM you pay $599 upon signing up and then $39 per month subsequently for as long as you are a member.

Digital Freedom Movement Affiliate Program

DFM Affiliate Program Explained from Digital Freedom Movement on Vimeo.


UPDATE:

You will notice that the video above is no longer available. I have no idea why it was made “private”. But below is basically a summary of the DFM Affiliate Program.


How Can You Earn?

There are 3 ways

1. Linear Income

Here you get paid when you make a sale.

  • If you sell their regular membership @ $199 UDS) you earn $100 CAD (Canadian Dollar)
  • If you sell Advanced Membership @ $349 USD you make $150 CAD

2. Leveraged Income – For Coaches

If someone in your team makes a sale you earn income.

If they sell regular membership @ $199

  • You pay your teammate/downline $100 CAD
  • You make $100+

If your teammate sells Advanced Membership @ $349

  • You pay your downline $150 CAD
  • You make $224

3. Residual Income

Here you get paid forever with no time or financial investment.

If someone on your team decides they want to become a team leader/ coach and earn leveraged income, the must pay you $300 every month!


Why Digital Freedom Movement Affiliate Program Works This Way?

They say they want to:

  • Put money back into your pocket because as an affiliate you are the one touching and changing other peoples lives. Therefore, you should be rewarded for your hard work. I think that would be an honorable thing to do.
  • Duplicate leaders so that there are adequate leaders within their system to help new members. Great idea.

Future Compensation/ Motivation Plans

The DFM owners want to reduce monthly membership fee from $39 to $19.99 so that they can attract more members. With the income generated the want to buy cars and give them to members as a way of motivating them. There will also be cash rewards.

Ok, while I admit that this is their way to motivate people to join, doesn’t the effort a bit much? In my opinion (which is not law), I agree with lowering the membership fee to make it easy for many people.

However, is there any need to go all out and buy car incentives? Well, this is their strategy which I have no right refuting…

Moving on…

They will invest in real estate and buy mansions all over the world for DFM members to stay there free, hold masterminds and have fun!

Sounds great, doesn’t it?

From where I stand I’m seeing DFM as something more than an affiliate marketing training platform as they claim to be. I see it taking the shape of a Multilevel Marketing entity. What do you think?

Is there anything wrong with MLM?

No there are millions of MLMs and some people actually like MLM businesses. What is weird in this case is the fact that these DFM guys claim to be teaching affiliate marketing while they do a lot of MLM stuff.

Or could this be an emerging business model? I think we could call it “Affiliate Marketing MLM”, you know the likes of Global Affiliate Zone.


Digital Freedom Movement Training And Support

Because their program is 90% done for you, they mainly teach their students how to place ads (10%). Great!

In my opinion, they run a “me too” program where new members are taught “the exact same methods” that the owners use. That is why 90% of the work is done for you.

They have an established funnel and ad copy that they hand to new members to plug into and promote.

As for their support, they have a Facebook group where members interact. Last time I checked, they do update their posts regularly. They have a little over 900 members in that group.


What Do They Actually Promote?

1. Digital Freedom Movement Membership

2. “High ticket affiliate products” – I discovered that among their so-called high ticket products is the Enagic Water Filter and MLM product that costs around $5000. For you to promote it, you must first buy it.

So,

Is Digital Freedom Movement An MLM?

Digital Freedom Movement has MLM characteristics.

If not, then

Why do they have such an intricate compensation plan?

Why do they promote MLM products?

Why do they tell you to reach out to the person who sent you the video if you have any questions?

See, their close cousin Global Affiliate Zone operates the same way. The difference is that with GAZ you cannot join directly from their website.

That means you need to be referred by someone. But DFM has an option of you join directly from their website.

In his Video, one of their Co-founders Kelland Chaffe says the owners are not greedy, they want to give everything back to their members. Sweet!


What I Like About Digital Freedom Movement – The Pros

Honestly, there isn’t anything much I like about DFM. Except for their mindset tips videos. It takes a great mindset to achieve success in any business. For that, I salute DFM.

What I Don’t Like About Digital Freedom Movement – The Cons

1. They are too expensive…but hey they do 90% of the work for you!

2. Done for you business – the problem with 90% done-for-you business is that you don’t really learn many skills to stand on your own in the event that you decide to leave DFM.

3. Their training is very basic – they focus on teaching you Ad placement. There isn’t enough value you can get. What about other forms of marketing – email marketing, etc. What about Search Engine Optimization?

4. They hide their true identity – I just don’t understand why they hide behind affiliate marketing ( which is actually my highly recommended business model).

5. No refund policy- your purchase is final?

6. No free trial – I think any legitimate program must have a way that people can try it out first to determine if it is the right fit for them. It’s only fair. Again this is how they prefer to run their system.



Digital Freedom Movement – Final Thoughts. Is It A Scam?

I wouldn’t call DFM a scam.

However, I personally would not join this company because I would like to learn how to build my own business myself. Not depend on DFY systems which are handed out to everyone who joins.

Their monthly subscription of $39 is ok and affordable. I don’t understand why I should pay a joining fee of $599. Anyway, it is their program and they are free to charge anyhow they want.

Another reason why I won’t join DFM is that they are running a secret MLM within their business. There are hidden expenses that you may need to incur in order to promote MLM products.

I personally don’t like the MLM business model because a lot of them are shady. People invest in MLM and barely make any money.

Do I recommend you to join the Digital Freedom Movement?

It is completely up to you to decide.

However, I would not join DFM…Yet!

I don’t recommend a program that makes you dependent on them for success. I recommend that you do Affiliate Marketing with any program that teaches you all the basics you need to run an independent business even in the event that you no longer want to be part of the program.

If you believe that DFM will do that for you, go ahead and join them.


I have learned how to do Affiliate Marketing with Wealthy Affiliate. I like it because of the following reasons.

  • Their training is beginner-friendly yet it is comprehensive
  • You build your online business based on your passion not just to promote the program
  • They help you build your own business assets beginning with your website. You can leave Wealthy Affiliate together with your websites anytime you want to and have your websites hosted anywhere you please.
  • They allow you to try the training for free so that you get the feel of how things are
  • They have no upsells
  • You do not have to promote Wealthy Affiliate to make money
  • The Wealthy Affiliate Membership Fee is actually cheap ($49) when you consider all the training, hosting, security, tools and support you get.

Now,

Should you abandon your research and join Wealthy Affiliate?

NO!

Don’t do that if your mind is set on DFM.

    This is a very biased review.
    I just joined them and you have it all wrong. They actually have their own affiliate system where they pau out $100-$200 to their members.
    Direct sales and MLM are very different so it seems you haven’t really done your homework.
    And you are (s@$%#*g) on them because you are promoting your own program lol Please!
    Also FYI they give back to their members cause in the short time i’ve been with them i’ve seen them give out prizes ranging from $100-$500.
    And… the one on one coaching is the best i’ve seen and I was a member of Tai Lopez courses as well.
    What you’re doing is slander.
    I am just a member of DFM and if you say a solid online marketing business doesn’t revolve around ads then you have no idea what you are talking about because affiliate marketing is all about ads.

    What you are doing is shady and that is why you haven’t made money online.
    People on the affiliate marketing business build each other up if you’ve ever attended a mastermind you would know that all business affiliate marketing owners lift each other up not tear each other down like you are doing.

    I think you actually need DFM in your life lol
    Pathetic, I am passing this on to them and I hope they sue you for slander.

      Jane Posted on12:18 pm - August 29, 2019

      Hey Bruce
      It’s a great pleasure hearing from you!
      Now, Bruce, I am genuinely happy for you to have found DFM.

      Well unlike you I don’t use foul language and therefore won’t insult you.

      Clearly, from your comment, you have limited knowledge of Affiliate Marketing.

      I will educate you a little.

      1. You can do Affiliate Marketing with paid ads and either be successful or fail.
      2. You can do Affiliate Marketing and be successful without paid ads. Only through SEO which is the reason why you were able to find my Review of DFM. I have nothing against paid Ads, I Know paid ads.
      You were quick to jump on me and missed my point – I said for complete beginners to start their affiliate marketing business focusing only on paid ads may not be a good idea because Digital Freedom Movement is already expensive to join.
      3. I don’t need to prove to you how much money I make online but you should know that I make money, thanks to the most thorough and comprehensive affiliate marketing training I get from Wealthy Affiliate.
      4. You should pay more attention to masterminds in the future to learn more about affiliate marketing.
      5. No, you are terribly wrong! I don’t need DFM, you do!
      6. I didn’t tear down at DFM. I am merely presenting the facts from my research. I was able to find their video explaining the Complex DFM Affiliate Program. Guess what Bruce? That video no longer exists…

      And Bruce, try and look at Miles Beckler – he has a lot of information you may benefit from.
      Enjoy your stay at DFM and please stop by and tell us how its been for you.
      Share with me and enlighten me, Bruce.
      GOOD LUCK BRUCE!

        Your research is rubbish.
        You aim is very very clear.
        Every single review you have made you only said negative things about every single platform except the one you are promoting haha
        I don’t need you to educate me thanks I’m very well educated and i’ve been an affiliate marketer for many years.
        Make sure you put wealthy affiliate in bold lol please!
        You have never been on the inside of the platform that is what is wrong with your review.
        Go inside, talk to the coaches and see the training.

        Also they don’t only focus on paid ads. So again you got it wrong there.
        BIASED all the way.
        That is not a review.
        That is the lowest form of promoting your program by bashing others and you can tell yourself that’s not true but you know it is you’re not fooling anyone but yourself.
        Tarnishing other people’s businesses to promote your own.
        Class act!

          Jane Posted on10:18 am - September 30, 2019

          Bruce!
          Welcome back!
          I am so happy that you keep coming back. Well, this time you are not vulgar like last time. You only sound angry as I imagined you. Anyway, I hate to bring out the worst out of my visitors.
          Things are going to change I promise you, Bruce.
          But before that,
          Know and understand that I got all this information from DFM Website and their videos on Vimeo. I didn’t make it up. Yet it still sounds so bad. I don’t like that.
          Bruce,
          Please share your true unbiased knowledge and experience with DFM. Refute my “biased” claims once and for all.
          I am willing to revise this review and write only what is true.
          In fact, I challenge you to write a real “unbiased Review of DFM. Rank it on the first page in SERPs and I will pull this one down. The great thing is that you have lots of experience. You can do it.
          Let’s end this madness once and for all, Bruce.
          What do you think?

    Waow! To start, i have respect for your hustle, blogging is hard! Although, bashing another company and giving false information about a company to promote your own affiliate offer (wealthy affiliate) is pretty low. I joined dfm a few months ago and it had been everything I thought it would be and more. My coach kelland is amazing! I may recommend getting all the details before slandering another company! Good luck to you, it must suck being broke promoting an inferior product :)

    P.s the (mlm) kind of structure regarding the affiliate program is no longer, its just 100 usd paid out to an affiliate, you should probably update your information! Smh

      Jane Posted on10:02 am - September 30, 2019

      Hi Tiffany
      Thanks for your comment, I appreciate your input.
      Let me first start by telling you that I have absolutely nothing against DFM.
      I would indeed appear that things keep changing at DFM and I needed to keep up. However,
      all the information in my review is not made up. Maybe it is my opinion that sounds bad. I formed my opinions based on the information in front of eyes when I wrote this review. I am willing to revise it when I get new info.

      About Wealthy Affiliate
      Perhaps you too needed to learn more about it before you decided that it is an inferior product! Wealthy Affiliate does not come anywhere near inferior. I am sure you will agree with me that you landed on this review on Google first page. I learned how to rank from Wealthy Affiliate.
      I love blogging, it not hard at all as you believe.

      I respect your opinion and I appreciate the time you took to comment.
      As of now, this review remains as is, pending new information, I am gathering.
      Meanwhile Tiffany, please share with me more information on DFM. The way you know it. The true picture.
