The Face Of Affiliate Marketing Mastery

Stephan Pylarinos is a pretty credible guy who has a few products such as K Money Mastery and Life mastery accelerator. Stephan also has a few product successful launches to his name. On his Affiliate Marketing Mastery site, Stephan highlights how he worked on a launch for one of Tony Robbins products and knocked it out of the park. There’s no denying that Stephan knows his stuff when it comes to affiliate marketing, he’s a pretty successful affiliate marketer. Will that success translate into providing a good training option for you, lets find out!

What Is Affiliate Marketing Mastery?

Affiliate Marketing Mastery opened it’s doors in 2016. The only way you can get into the program now is through your participation in one of Stephans webinars. Affiliate Marketing Mastery focuses on all aspects of affiliate marketing starting with building the right work ethic to making your first affiliate sale.

What Kind Of Training Does Affiliate Marketing Mastery Offer?

Affiliate Marketing Mastery offers some really good training that includes training in the following areas…

This is a youtube video that Stephan created explaining what affiliate marketing is. This is a great way to get people to join one of his free webinars that lead you to his Affiliate marketing Mastery course. This is a great live example of how Youtube can work for you in your affiliate promotions.

All these topics and more (70+) are delivered via video format. Video format training can be a good training vehicle for many but it can be a slower vehicle for training. I personally like a combination of text and video instructional training options. I find this the most efficient method of training. The jury is out on which is the easiest to update when it comes to keeping your training platform as current as possible. Current training is of the utmost importance given the ever-changing landscape that affiliate marketing experiences every time a social platform or search engine such as google make updates.

Is Affiliate Marketing Mastery A Credible offer?

I don’t think theres any denying that fact that Stephans Affiliate marketing course is credible. The program does offer much of what you would need to learn affiliate marketing the right way. The program focuses on using proven affiliate marketing disciplines that do work, I use these same techniques to run my “profitable” affiliate marketing business. Given the fact that this offer was launched in 2016 which is like dog years when looking at  the changes that social media platforms and search engines have made in that time I would say that most of the training appears to have kept pace with the fast moving environment of the internet.

Is Affiliate Marketing Mastery Well Suited For Beginners?

I would say by looking at the course content and method of delivery and flow of the course that this product is well suited for beginners. I would say that I only have two legitimate reservations with the Affiliate Marketing Mastery course, one of which is the cost and the effects that this would have on newcomers to affiliate marketing which I will get into as I cover the next topic and the other the support mechanism.

Support in any online training program is the most critical aspect to finding success with your chosen platform for learning. I will be honest I am not a fan of facebook groups as a support mechanism. Over the years I have tested many Facebook groups to see how they compare to forum or community based support options, none to date have lived up to my expectations. This was mostly due to the lack of membership. Activity is great but shear numbers make all the difference to how fast and thorough the answers you get will be.

When I first started my training in affiliate marketing I needed support that was there when I needed it. I worked full time and needed support when I was working on my affiliate marketing training program that was there when I was there, I didn’t have time to come back looking for answers, I needed answers on the spot.

The Facebook group in this case really isn’t that large but they are fairly active which is good. You do get some support from administration which you should expect from a course charging close to $2,000. I would give this support model a “B” rating, there are better models of support out there that offer live chat options for example where you can get timely answers to your questions. There are also support options where members are given incentives to help other members which really speeds up the response time to questions.

Facebook group support is the cheapest support option that any company can provide, other than no support at all. For the price, I would have liked to have seen a few more support options available such as live chat for people who are on a strict time line and need responsive support.

The Question You’ve Been Waiting For, Is There Value In This Offer?

To be quite honest I don’t think there is any affiliate marketing training option that is worth close to $2,000 bucks in my opinion. I think that the creator of Affiliate Marketing Mastery is a credible guy. I think he is a talented affiliate marketer. I think his course is well put together, but the price is too high in my opinion for what you get, there I said it!

Look at what you don’t get!

To practice what Affiliate Marketing Mastery teaches you will need the following tools ad services that aren’t supplied…

Keyword tool: A keyword tool is necessary to write the content that is required in the Affiliate Marketing Mastery training. You shouldn’t write any content unless you first go through the process of doing some keyword research. A few keyword tool providers to look at…

Website Hosting: You will need to get hosting for your website that you will be building as part of your training in Affiliate Marketing Mastery. The cost for hosting varies. Usually hosting providers give you a deal the first year but sock it to you in the second year. A few hosting platforms that you might want to consider are…

  • Bluehost
  • GoDaddy
  • HostGator
  • SiteGround
  • Wealthy Affiliate

Autoresponder: You will need the use of an autoresponder service if you are going to take advantage of the email marketing component of this course.

Costs may vary on the above services and tools, it really depends on what packages and functions you want your services and tools to provide. You should expect that your additional monthly costs would be in the $75-$100 range, depending on what packages you decide on. This adds considerably to your overall cost for this training offer.

My Final Thoughts

I like the training option that Stephan Pylarinos has dished up with Affiliate Marketing Mastery, its first class in many ways. I like the fact that the program isn’t fraught with up selling offers. The program is a pure training offer that doesn’t look to get into your pockets at every turn. The training offered is relevant to affiliate marketing in this day and age.

On the other end of the spectrum I have some reservations. I struggle with the price point that Stephan has put on Affiliate Marketing Mastery. I have work with a lot of new people to affiliate marketing over the years and I feel that putting yourself under financial pressure with the high training cost with tools and services extra is in my opinion a death blow for many new affiliate marketers.

Months go by quite quickly when you are first building your affiliate business. Before you know it you are a year into the building of your business where the costs can really get high if you haven’t started to make any significant income yet. From my experience you should count on a year before your affiliate business gets any traction. It takes time to build a presence online and generate traffic to your affiliate offers.

The training that is offered in this program is good, but can you withstand the financial pressure? Could you handle at least another $1,000 added to the cost of the course for your tools and services. There are some really good affiliate marketing training platforms that offer everything under the same roof for a fraction of the cost, something you should at least look at before you saddle yourself with higher training costs. The program I used to get my affiliate marketing training offered an annual membership ($29 month that gave me everything) I needed under one roof, current training, great forum support, live chat, keyword tool, everything except an autoresponder which you can find for free (up to 2500 subscribers) if you are just starting out.
