Affiliate Marketing Mastery ( My 2019 Critique)

Affiliate Marketing Mastery ( My 2019 Critique)

Finding success as an Affiliate Marketer can be tough nut to crack. Finding the right affiliate marketing training can be even more of a challenge given the vast inventory of affiliate marketing training options. Courses like Affiliate Marketing Mastery by Stephan Pylarinos populate the affiliate marketing training landscape like Iguanas do on the Galapagos Islands, it’s hard to know what program will suit your budget, learning preferences, time restraints and still produce the results you expect out of your affiliate marketing training program.

I hope you find all the answers to your questions on Stephan’s course in my 2019 critique of Affiliate Marketing Mastery. If I missed anything you can ask me any questions or leave a comment on this review at the bottom of this page.

Topics I will cover, but not limited to, in this Affiliate Marketing Mastery critique are…

  • Who Is Stephan Pylarinos?
  • What Is Affiliate Marketing Mastery?
  • Is Affiliate Marketing Mastery a credible program?
  • What is covered in the Affiliate Marketing Mastery course?
  • What does the cost to value look like for this course?
  • Is Affiliate Marketing Mastery course content still relevant?
  • Is Affiliate Marketing mastery suited for beginners?

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.

All in all, what the Legendary Marketer system is trying to accomplish is to bring a franchisee type business structure to the online world.

The Legendary Marketer Products

Legendary Marketer Products are offered using the typical licensee marketing concept. How this works is, when you buy into a course you not only get the course for your own benefit, but you also earn commissions off selling this course to others. Other higher ticket programs to incorporate this business model are programs such as Elite Marketing pro and My Top Tier Business which I have heard has run into issues with the FTC and members are now out-of-pocket.

This basic membership offers participants training, education and resources to help get you started, grow and scale a digital marketing business.

Specialty Products – Invisible Influence: One-Time $997

This Invisible Influence is a complete start to finish course on how to build branded Facebook fan pages and Instagram pages that are specifically used to generate traffic, leads and sales from a highly engaged group of followers. Not sure on how up to date and useful this option of training is, Facebook is updating guidelines on a regular basis so this course would need to be very responsive to the changing guidelines Facebook implements.

Compensation Plan: Legendary Marketer Review

Legendary Marketer offers its participants the ability to resell Legendary Marketer products and services, and in return earn revenue based on the sale of products sold.

Inside the licensing platform they also offer training and tools such as ads, software and sales funnels.

Legendary Marketer will also include sales support for their licensees via phone, webinars and live events from other representatives on behalf of the affiliates’.

You’ll get paid 60% of all introductory-level products and 40% on all core products and specialty products.

The reason why you receive 40% commission on two of those categories is because there will be coaches there to assist in the sale of those products on the affiliates’ behalf. 20% of that commission goes to the coach.

From time to time, Legendary Marketer will have discounts of their products, and you’ll only receive the commission on the sale price, not the regular price of the items.

An affiliate has to qualify for the product level they’re making a sale on. If not, the full commission passes up to the next qualified affiliate.

An affiliate can become qualified to sell a product in 2 ways:

  • First option is to purchase the product, which gives you the right to affiliate commissions from that product.
  • Second Option is to qualify for a commission from a product by selling 3 units of any given product without actually buying the product yourself. This option doesn’t give you access to the product.

Who Is Legendary Marketer Intended For?

If your brand new to internet marketing, then you can start from scratch with Legendary Marketer, the training looks to be very well laid out. If I were to choose who is best suited for the Legendary Marketer I personally wouldn’t go into the program as a beginner, yes it does look fairly straight forward but there are some dangers for newcomers.  I feel the Legendary Marketer program is best suited for someone who has a medium to advanced understanding of internet marketing. Having a good understanding of internet marketing will help you sell the products sooner than later, minimizing the length of return on investment.  Being new to internet marketing also makes you vulnerable to buying into products which realistically you may not need.

If you are new to affiliate marketing/digital marketing you would be putting your faith in David Sharpe to only sell you what you need and I wouldn’t recommend that for any Biz Op, not just the Legendary Marketer offer.

What’s The Better Business Bureau Have To Say?

Although Legendary Marketer doesn’t have an accreditation with the BBB, they do hold a B+ standing.

They were first opened on the BBB in May 2017, and have accrued one negative complaint and a positive comment.

So far, no big red flags to report.

What Legendary Marketer Does Well!

  • Training is detailed and easy to follow
  • Offers experienced marketers valuable training and good resell opportunities
  • High commissions as an affiliate;
  • Sales team will help promote and sell products with you;
  • 30-day money back guarantee;
  • Created and run by a long time experienced marketer in the industry.

What Legendary Marketer Could Improve!!

  • No FREE option to try the program
  • Focus of the program is on selling internal products (building a recruitment force);
  • Program is new and lacks established track record, don’t have good statistics to show successful affiliates’ making money, to date they can only assume the industry standard of between $500 and $2000 a year.
  • Not a program I feel is suited for a beginner, way too much opportunity for a newcomer to get in over their heads with the allure of making big bucks while incurring high associated costs.

My Final Legendary Marketer Review Verdict.

To be honest I have mixed feelings about the Legendary Marketer offer. I like what the program offers in the way of training and support options,  but looking at the Legendary Marketers program from an experienced marketers perspective I feel the program is at the top end of the online marketing training spectrum.  From personal experience I know you can make decent money without incurring the training costs that the Legendary Marketer program requires. I feel that Legendary Marketer could be a great money maker for an experienced internet marketer who wants to resell the courses.

Honestly I am not a fan of high ticket products in general. When I started affiliate marketing I was on a shoestring budget and needed to keep my costs as low as I could, I never went over $50 a month for training, support and the necessary  tools to make money as an internet marketer, far cry from the costs you could incur with the Legendary Marketer program.

When you first start out I totally believe its a necessity to keep your costs as low as you can, the learning curve can be steep and the last thing you need is to add un- necessary financial pressure to the pressures of learning a new discipline.

In summary, I feel the Legendary Marketer is a  legitimate offer, just too rich for my blood. There are cheaper ways to learn to affiliate marketing/digital marketing which give you the opportunity to sell any product. My advice, don’t pay to promote any product online until you have established a sales history online. There are thousands and thousands of merchants willing to pay you to drive traffic to their products with no fees.

The Wealth Network – Amazon Sellers Training Platform Reviewed

The Wealth Network – Amazon Sellers Training Platform Reviewed

Name: The Wealth Network

Cost: $3 access plus premium upgrade option of $1997

Established: July 2017

Type of business: Amazon sellers training platform

Founders: Aaron Andrews, Josh Jacobs, and Jesse Singh

Website: www.thewealthnetwork.com

 

As you’ve probably already noticed, Amazon has seen insane growth over the last few years. The Wealth Network was developed to take advantage of the meteoric rise in Amzon’s popularity. The Wealth Network has embarked on creating a training program to teach beginners or experienced online entrepreneurs how to sell via FBA (fulfillment by Amazon).

If you’re looking to make some money online, Amazon could definitely be your venue, but even as a person who has experience as an affiliate marketer there’re still more you will need to know to pull this rabbit out of the hat and make money with Amazon! As you’ve probably noticed from the pictures, Amazon has generated a total of 22.9 billion in affiliate revenues, as well as more than doubled their item deliveries through third parties. In addition, by the end of 2016, Amazon saw a 70% increase in FBA sellers. This is huge!

The Wealth Network has developed a program to help you get into Amazon, and make some real coin. However, is the cost and training provided worth your time and hard-earned money? Will you actually find yourself making money after completing The Wealth Network training?

Read my “The Wealth Network review” and find the answers to your questions. Like always please leave me any experiences you may have had with the Wealth Network or any comments or questions you may have, cheers Mike.

What Is The Wealth Network??

mentioned earlier in this post, The Wealth Network is a program that was designed to provide you with the necessary skills to sell physical products on Amazon. They offer an educational platform and tool suite with software and services for beginners and advanced marketers.

The Wealth Network is primarily designed for people looking to start a new business, or even looking to take their current business to the next level.

TWN makes a bold claim right out of the starting gates claiming to offer a 100% money back guarantee if you don’t make money within your first 48 hours of signing up!

The Wealth Network also offers training in areas focused on affiliate marketing.

The Wealth Network was launched by experts in their fields; Aaron Andrews, Josh Jacobs, and Jesse Singh.

TWN did what is referred to as a soft launch when they first released their product to consumers. The Wealth Network platform was originally released with a price tag of $49.95 per month for an entry level course, and a $149.95 per month price tag for a more advanced level of training for people a little more motivated to build a money making business online. Unfortunately this didn’t go off to well for the trio and they were deluged with negative feedback, mainly members claiming it was just too costly for them to participate.

Long story short, they have recently decided to scratch their initial payment model for something that was more receptive to prospective members. The Wealth Network now offers a new (one time payment) option of $1,997 complimented with a $3 entry level course for those who just want to find out what their platform can provide.

With this change in mind, TWN also went from saying you’d make money within 48 hours using their platform, to having your site up and running with amazon products within a few weeks, little more realistic in my opinion, a more credible statement, that’s for sure.

I have a very hard time don’t taking anyone seriously who claims that you can make money in two days of launching a website with the intent to generate income. I am glad they decided to re-word their “guarantees”.

Jesse Singh runs a MLM review site where he provides a review on The Wealth Network, claiming that he has the most up to date information on TWN, I guess it should be if he is an actual principle in The Wealth Network.

What Can You Expect From The Wealth Network?

mentioned The Wealth Network offers a $3 entry level training program that Jesse calls on his site the “3-day pay system”. It is more formerly known as The Ecommerce Wealth Center on their official website.

This particular course focus primarily on utilizing the Amazon Platform which provides instructional info so that someone with ZERO experience can get started using Amazon’s platform.

TWN offers one-on-one advisers who can help you set up and scale an Amazon selling Business.

The Wealth Network will help you find profitable items already sold on Amazon, source these same items cheaper, and then turn around and send them to Amazon directly.

FBA or fulfillment by Amazon is a great way to go about selling products on Amazon. Shipping, customer services, and returns are all facilitated by Amazon. You will eventually need to deal with consumer refund requests but on a limited scale.

In The Wealth Network’s training platform, they claim to have students making anywhere from 20 – 40% profits using the training they have received through TWN’s training.

If you buy into the $3 entry course you’ll have access to products like Profit Spy software, which will help you compile a list of profitable items already for sale on Amazon. Webinars, top rated resources essential for growing your Amazon business, and access to a Facebook Mastermind group where you can connect with entrepreneurs in The Wealth Network community are also provided.

The Wealth Network’s entry level course will give you roughly 40% of what you need to know to make money online. However, I feel if you are a true newbie to selling on Amazon your benefit from this level entry program may be limited.

Their Premium Product, The Wealth Network Journey!

Besides the low cost entry level program of $3, The Wealth Network also offers a considerably more expensive training option called The Wealth Network Journey, or more formally on the site as Marketing Wealth Center.

This premium offer from the Wealth Network is going to cost you a one time fee of $1,997.

In The Wealth Network Journey, you’ll find access to:

  • Smart Funnels, which is a multi-functional landing page software which will allow you to build beautiful landing pages;
  • The Wealth Network blogging system, which is a fully customizable website with top SEO friendly themed plugins already installed;
  • Marketing, comprehensive blogging and SEO training from expert Jesse Singh himself;
  • Many top resources; and
  • Access to the Facebook Masterminds group.

This course is a tool suite and training package designed for beginners and advanced students alike.

The Important Part; Compensation!

What’s great about working through Amazon is that they can offer some really good margins for their products. But if you’re looking at becoming an affiliate for The Wealth Network, (which they highly encourage!) you’ll find the following compensation plans outlines.

The Wealth Network doesn’t consider their offer to be a MLM style gig, they consider their program to be more of an affiliate program.

For the $3 entry level course, The Wealth Network pays their students out at 40% commissions.

For the higher end course you actually get less affiliate income, you’ll only receive 25% commissions by promoting this higher end offer. The reason behind the lower commission is explained by the need to pay a 20% commission to the one-on-one experts that help their students navigate Amazon’s sellers platform.

If you’re just simply using the course for educational purposes, and selling products through FBA, Amazon pays anywhere from 10% to 40% depending on the product being sold.

What I Like!

  • Comes with legit training from proven marketers;
  • Is inexpensive to get a look at the training provided;
  • Covers a wide range of marketing strategies;
  • Recruitment is not required to be successful;
  • 7-day money back on $3 entry level course.

What Could Be Better.

  • Promoted very much like a “get-rich-quick” type of opportunity;
  • Not a lot of information on their website, or their own review, pertaining to the courses and what you get;
  • Most beneficial course is far too expensive in my opinion;
  • Getting acquainted with your adviser takes some time, sometimes up to a week before you even get one;
  • Getting your refund back is difficult; and no information of whether I can get one back on the $1997 course.

My Thoughts On The Wealth Network

I feel that the over the top type of sales propaganda give the Wealth Network an unintended snake oil salesman feel.

  • Outrageous claims of money making ( within 48 hours);
  • Very little information about what you are paying for;
  • Overly enthusiast testimonies about people making large sums of money.

If you can get past these types of what I would consider over the top marketing tactics, there are some real positive aspects to the Wealth Network offer. The tools and resources that TWN offer are legit, and making money through Amazon is a legitimate way to earn an income online. Many have made a good income leveraging the popularity of Amazon’s marketplace.

Overall I feel it’s worth the $3 for a look and a little insight into selling products on Amazon, but I feel the cash you need to dole out for the training and tools that you really need to make money selling on Amazon is considerably higher than training to become an affiliate marketer, which would run roughly $400 a year to build a nice income for yourself in the process. Jesse Sing one of the principles in The Wealth Network is an accomplished affiliate marketer and has reported making a nice income from affiliate marketing.

I myself engage in affiliate marketing, making thousands a month in affiliate commissions. My training cost me under $400 a year, which I recouped in mere months while building my affiliate business promoting various products and services for nice commissions upwards of 50%.

2018 Review Of Rapid Profit System

2018 Review Of Rapid Profit System

Rapid Profit System is a video training program that was created by Omar and Linda Martin. Rapid Profit System has a low introductory price of $19.95 makes the Rapid Profit System offer very enticing to price conscious consumers. I know anyone can blow 20 bucks in a flash, but why throw your money away if you don’t have to? Lets see if your $20 gets you something for your money in my Rapid profit System review.

In this Rapid Profit System review I am going to take a critical look at whether the Rapid Profit System offers any value for your $20, just keep in mind, if you bite on the numerous up sells within the Rapid Profit System offer you will find the cost creeps up considerably.

Rapid Profit System pitches two up sells, one for an additional $27 and one for an additional $37 which I will touch on a little later in this Rapid Profit System review.

 What Exactly Is Rapid Profit System

Rapid Profit System offers a video training platform that focuses on various aspects of  affiliate marketing.

These strategies are laid out in a convenient 3 phase delivery system.

The Rapid Profit System concentrates on the promotion of JV Zoo products which do yield very good commissions,  usually at the lower end of the cost scale so they do have some consumer appeal. I have promoted a few JV Zoo products over the years and have made some decent money promoting these products. If there is one issue that I have with the JV Zoo affiliate market place is, they don’t pay out for 90 days and there are quite a few refunds that’s why they have that 90 day hold on commissions.

Products offered through the JV Zoo affiliate platform tend to be low budget products some tending to be on the “flakey” side in a manner of speaking. When I say flakey I mean they tend to have a very short life span , in and out products that were created to make a vendor some quick cash and affiliates some quick commissions.

Affiliates jump all over products like Rapid Profit System so you will see quite a few false positive reviews by affiliates trying to get a quick commission. The top earners at JV Zoo tend to use websites and content creation as their go to marketing technique so it does raise the question, what type of affiliate marketing strategies does the Rapid Profit System recommend?

What Are The Three Phases Inside Rapid Profits Offer?

Phase 1 – The Market

This phase is all about finding a profitable niche. Instruction on choosing a niche in a profitable niche market is delivered through video format. The instruction is pretty thorough and easy to follow, this is the exact steps that the creators say they use personally. I can tell you from experience that finding a profitable niche to participate in is probably the most important aspect of finding success online. I created some training you might want to check out that shows you how to find a profitable niche right from the beginning, you can check it out here, finding a profitable niche market.

Few topics that are covered in phase 1 are,

  • How to locate potential customers
  • Attract more buyers for your products
  • Planning promotions
  • What to avoid when running your campaigns

Phase 2 – The Funnel

Once you have found your niche the next step comes in Phase 2 where you will learn to build a basic sales funnel which will guide people to your offer. Rapid Profits shows you how to build landing pages that attract traffic and offer your visitors incentives in the form of bonuses to click through to your offer. One incentive that Rapid Profits promotes is to use free PLR material as your giveaway.

Few topics covered in Phase 2 are,

  • How to build your email list
  • Maximize your return on investment

Up sells You Will Face Inside The Rapid Profit System

  • The secret funnel workshop – Learn how to apply simple techniques to maximize your sales funnel effectiveness and conversions
  • Secret traffic session workshop – Learn techniques that will help you drive targeted traffic to your offers

Is Rapid Profit System Worth $19.95?

Lokking at what is offered inside the Rapid Profit System offer I would say yes it is worth the $19.95 investment. Personally I feel the original offer is where the value lies not in buying the two up sells that are pitched inside the offer. What you do need to keep in mind is that people who are successful at promoting online incorporate many affiliate marketing techniques which almost always start with a website that offers valuable information. From there you can incorporate email campaigns and build your email lists.

Landing pages and so on are great but not as effective as using a website as your principle marketing platform while combining a solid social media campaign, I might add quite a bit more affordable that using paid traffic sources which don’t always deliver results.

Using Omar and Melinda’s techniques can be quite costly if you don’t have prior affiliate marketing experience and some type of prior success. I like what Rapid Profit system offers for training and the price is right but I feel to be successful promoting JV Zoo products you really need some sort of review site that focuses almost exclusively on JV Zoo products.

I have has some decent success promoting JV Zoo products but the 90 hold back on affiliate commissions kind of sucks and I find because most JV Zoo products are in and out products that offer low value the refund rates can be quite high.

All in all if you have experience in affiliate marketing I think it’s worth a look just keep in mind you don’t need the extras! Take a look at the first page for Rapid Profit System and it will give you a really good sense of who is getting all the traffic, do you see sales pages top the search results? NO!  What you do see are review websites which are getting all the traffic whether they are promoting the Rapid Profit System or not they are still getting the bulk of the traffic with not one sales page insight other than the Rapid Profit Systems home sales page so you really should consider this before making any investment.

Can You Profit With All In One Profits?

Can You Profit With All In One Profits?

Cost: $10 or $20/month

Founder: Johan Van Geffen and Isabella Capsuna

Established: 2012

Website: allinoneprofits.com

Building an entire business online can be tough and time-consuming, and a lot of people would be looking for what All In One Profits provides, which is a one-stop-shop.

The internet has become the most expansive resource as each and everyday more people are discovering its potential. All In One Profits is designed to help you capture that growing base of individuals looking to purchase from the internet. They have provided a single spot for you to access everything you could ever need to build your business online.

There are numerous things you need just to get started and then numerous services and programs needed to maintain and grow your business.

Today I am reviewing All In One Profits to find out if the one-stop-shop they provide is really as valuable as they claim it to be, and whether it’s worth you investing your hard-earned time and money into it.

Join me in reviewing All In One Profits!

What Is All In One Profits?

All In One Profits claims to have integrated a suite of essential web tools, products, services and advertising for your everyday needs as a potential internet marketer.

These services include things such as professional web hosting and autoresponders, all made affordably to help businesses and individuals simplify and facilitate their online operations.

All In One Profits main goal is to lower the cost of someones online presence by delivering critical internet products and services one demand, with a full spectrum of compliance to web presence regulations and anti-spam compliance services.

Again, as mentioned above, All In One Profits has built a one-stop-shop for someone looking to build a complete online business from the ground up.

In addition, they offer a compensation plan for those looking to recruit others into All In One Profits. Some of the compensation is 100% profit back to the affiliate!! We’ll talk about that further down.

The Products

There are two levels that you can sign up for with All In One Profits, one being a ‘basic’ level, and another being the ‘pro’ level products.

The basic level of products come with:

  • Premium web hosting;
  • How To video guide for setting up you host account;
  • What All In One Profits considers their ‘fantasico’ C Panel. This is a built in site builder, where you can choose from your own ready-made templates for your website;
  • Programming and database features;
  • Email features;
  • As well as the all-in-one profits e library, which includes hundreds of how to video training courses on everything about internet marketing, computer training, self-development, network marketing, social marketing, MLM, educational, inspirational and motivational videos, software, audio, templates and sell pages, articles, and email training and tips.

The pro level comes with everything included in the basic level membership, however, you also get:

  • Drag and drop landing page and website builder to create your own lead pages and sales funnel;
  • Photo slider maker to quickly and easily create photo slideshows for your site;
  • Video squeeze creator;
  • Web video testimony creator;
  • Premium audio video, which is a royalty free music and image creator;
  • All In One Profits ad co-op, which will help advertise your links for you automatically on a co-op rotator;
  • 3 text blocks;
  • 2 rotating banners with unlimited credits;
  • 20 track links;
  • And a premium special PLR products package, updated monthly.

What Would I Pay For All In One Profits?

The cost is actually fairly reasonable, depending on how much you utilize the entire site.

It is $10 a month for the ‘basic’ level membership.

For the ‘pro’ membership, you’d be paying $20 a month, however you’d get a little more compensation when recruiting members. In addition, you’ll be getting more bang for your buck.

Compensation; All In One Profits

This is one of the most basic compensation plans I’ve seen in some time.

At a basic level, you actually get 100% pay out. For every basic membership you promote and sell, you get $10 back for your referral.

The same goes for the pro membership, however, if you’re a pro member, you get $15 back for every pro membership your sell and refer to another member.

Regardless of whether you are pro or basic membership, if you refer someone to the basic membership and they sign up, you get $10 commission.

They’ve actually approached it in a more “rotator’ type of fashion, where even numbered referrals (2,4,6,8…) goes to your sponsor/the company if you don’t have one. Every uneven numbered referral goes to you (1,3,5,7…).

This is the same when you refer members, their even numbered referrals come up to you, they their uneven numbered referrals get paid to them.

They do this because of that very sensitive line between what would be considered a “multi-level marketing” operation and what wouldn’t. By utilizing this rotator method, by definition they cannot be considered a MLM. A MLM company or program is considered as such if they contain a matrix, binary or pyramid type of compensation plan.

Instead of building your team out on multiple levels, where one level is constantly paying into another, they build out their teams width wise.

Support/Tools/Training; All In One Profits

The tools to become successful are all included within the memberships. This is a nice change from a lot of other programs I have reviewed.

The training is complete self engaged and motivated, and most of the library e-books as things you can find for free online. You’re expected to teach yourself through these e-books and articles.

Again, All In One Profits goal is to create the one-stop-shop, but that’s about it.

Their support is supplied through a support ticket system.

All support requested is assigned a unique ticket number which you can use to track the progress and responses online.

There is a customer service number for technical service and support that this based out of the Netherlands. The number is hidden in very small print towards the bottom of the page so it looks as if they may discourage the use of it.

What Others Are saying; All In One Profits

All in all, this is a very weak membership/system and it looks as if many others agree.

Even though it seems like All In One Profits offer a lot for the money spent, they really do not offer a lot of resources and tools for people to utilize.

They focus hard on getting you to recruit new members rather than actually building a website for your own business potential.

Many members comments I read feel as if All In One Profits has things backwards as to why you would upgrade from basic that pays100% commission while pro which is the more expensive membership only pays a 75% commission.

What All In One Profits Does Well

  • Great idea for a marketing one-stop-shop;
  • Inexpensive start-up cost;
  • 100% commission pay back on basic membership.

What All In One Profits Could Do Better

  • No refund policy;
  • No real support, all on your own;
  • Most tools available via membership can be found for equal or lower price online;
  • Pro membership has lower compensation compared to basic membership;
  • Membership payment is monthly;
  • Not great for beginners;
  • Trying hard not to fall under the network marketing umbrella, but still are.

My Final Thoughts On All In One Profits

With All In One Profits, your only option to make money is to ensure you are recruiting people in your down line. Although they emphasize the ability to create your own business online, they are really only prepping you to sell their products to other people.

Again, your claim to fame relies on whether the people in your down line are paying their monthly membership fee.

The ugly truth behind structures such as this one are that once someone 4 levels down from you decides to stop paying their membership, the person 3 levels down from you will most likely begin to stop paying their membership fee.

The structure has the ability to implode at the smallest change in structure, which isn’t very strong.

There are no other products to sell besides the membership, and even with some affiliate knowledge, it would be extremely difficult to take the tools provided and simply build your own successful affiliate business.

The success of All In One Profits depends entirely on the internal structure continuing to build from the top down. If someone on the bottom gives up, or falls short, the whole structure will quickly begin to fall apart as well.

Is Global Affiliate Zone A Scam?

Is Global Affiliate Zone A Scam?

Cost: $99/month

Establishment:2016

Founder: Julian Sherman and Mathieu Jang

Website: globalaffiliatezone.com

The main goal within today’s Global Affiliate Zone review was to figure out, “Is Global Affiliate Zone a scam?”. As I worked through the systems, tools and compensation pertaining to Global Affiliate Zone, I began to understand the answer to my question.

In today’s affiliate marketing arena, there’re millions of dollars out there looking to be claimed, but how do we tap into that resource, and how do we master the art of affiliate marketing? Everyone believes their way is the best, but sometimes your have to look deep into the offer to ensure that your’re investing in something legit and not another dud, which there are many of.

My goal today, besides answering the question “Is Global Affiliate Zone a scam?”, is to provide your with 100% accurate information about the GAZ membership. From there, I anticipate your’ll begin to make your own conclusions about the membership program at Global Affiliate Zone.

So is Global Affiliate Zone a scam? You’ll have to finish the review to find out!

What Is Global Affiliate Zone?

In order to answer the question, “Is Global Affiliate Zone a scam?”, we first need to look into what Global Affiliate Zone truly is as a website, and what they offer.

From what I’ve pulled from the Global Affiliate Zone website it’s easy to see that it’s a network marketing company, that is geared towards coaching and training. Upon completion of your membership, your’re provided training and mentor ship to learn how to make money online.


Global Affiliate Zone currently maintains memberships with over 4000 members thus far, and is originally based out of Las Vegas, Nevada. They claim to offer the most comprehensive, up-to-date training, coaching and resources to online entrepreneurs. The idea is to teach your proven marketing strategies that work, so that your can implement these strategies into any affiliate program online.

Global Affiliate Zone state that they offer “in demand products” and services that your can market as an affiliate, and they focus a good majority of their attention and effort on teaching your to sell their own affiliate products.

As an affiliate for Global Affiliate Zone, your’re given the ability to sell their products as an affiliate, and they handle the customer experience and marketing processes such as email sequences, marketing materials, coaching processes, as well as sales and follow up.

Products And Services Offered Through Global Affiliate Zone

Although their website indicates all throughout that they offer different “products and services”, they are really only selling the Global Affiliate Zone monthly membership. This is somewhat misleading, and although the membership does offer some services, it leads someone to believe that the Global Affiliate Zone offers some over and above products and services. This is not the case, and the only product available to promote and sell is their membership.

The membership, which will cost your a $99 monthly fee, offers access to the Global Affiliate Zone community, and it’s training resources.

After joining, your’re given access to private automated sales funnels, including done for your marketing materials, custom capture pages, pre-made follow up emails and live sales presentations.

The private Global Affiliate Zone community offers support and coaching from some top performers within the GAZ community, available at the click of a button.

Let’s take a look at what your really get…

What You Get For $99/month

Private Community Access: Insider access to the community and resources.

Mentorship and Coaching: You’re given specific game plans custom tailors to your that will coach your along the way and ensure your hit your goals.

Live Events: You have the ability to connect with the community and masterminds within the leadership teams to get advice and coaching.

Sales Team/ Sales Funnels: You can run the same funnels that run on six and seven figure campaigns that plug into the top sales team in our sale that will help close sales for your.

Live Workshops and Webinars: Live team workshops every week s that your can come and ask questions as well as submit work to have it reviewed by the top leaders within the Global Affiliate Zone.

Courses and Training: Offers click-by-click training that is specifically engineered to allow the newest person with no experience to follow along and get results.

Video Tutorials: The videos are set up as over-the-shoulder type videos that walk your through exactly how to set up your campaigns.

The Compensation Plan With Global Affiliate Zone

The compensation plan is fairly simple, and their primary focus is just their GAZ pro membership, the same one your would have signed up for.

In order to be eligible for their affiliate program, your would have to be a Global Affiliate Zone member, paying the same $99 a month cost as the members your’re trying to recruit.

As an affiliate, your’ll be directed to push the GAZ Pro membership, which is $99/month. Your commission from that is 30% for every month your recruit renews their subscription.

This 30% equates to $29.70 a month payout for your, which would be paid bi-monthly after your recruits finish their 14-day refund policy probationary period.

Commissions are paid out via ACH transfer in the United States, and for Canada, UK, Australia or any other country, your commissions would be paid out by check until they develop a more secure global payment solution.

GAZ Pro Support

The most important part for a beginner to have is support, and without it really doesn’t matter what program, course or company your go with, your’ll be fairly lost.

Global Affiliate Zone does have a general number and email address that your can connect with, however, they encourage your to utilize the private GAZ community for the majority of the support needed. In addition, your have the live webinars and meet up to ask questions, share ideas, and gain feedback.

What I really Liked About The Global Affiliate Zone

  • Offer a 14-day refund period. If you are not happy after 14 days of testing the resources and courses on the GAZ pro membership, your’ll get the opportunity to have a full money back guarantee.
  • They offer quite a few different sources for support. Whether it be access the community for support, or joining in on live webinars, events, or meet-ups to gain insight to your troubles or to gain valuable feedback.
  • The commissions are reasonable. If your look at a few other offers for recruitment type opportunities, 30% is a large return on commissions.

What I Feel Global Affiliate Zone Could Do Better.

  • Cost of membership is fairly high, and will cost up to $1200 a year to be a member. This is quite high for what is offered, even if your include the support and help they give.
  • Essentially a network marketing company geared towards training your to sell for them. If your want to learn true internet marketing, companies that are geared towards MLM aren’t always the best. They usually will only teach your want they want your to know in order to sell their products, the way they want your to sell them.
  • Training is very simple, and doesn’t show your much regarding building your own website, targeting a niche, building an audience and growing your traffic. Through-out all the training, your’re not once taught what traffic is, how to achieve it, and how to build and capture it.
  • Still, a new company with some bugs to work out. They have done an excellent job of developing their appearance and website, but have some work to do on capturing members, and developing their training and coaching resources.

So, Is Global Affiliate Zone A Scam?

As I mentioned at the beginning, my focus was ensuring I provided your with the information your need to answer the question, ” Is Global Affiliate Zone a scam?”.

At this point I don’t believe Global Affiliate Zone is a scam, but I do believe it is a network marketing company geared around training your to pay, to help them sell their memberships. Although your may make money during your membership, your won’t learn what it takes to be a true affiliate marketer on the web.

That being said as well, the chance of your making back what your invest into the membership I feel would be tough on a monthly basis, selling a 100 a month membership is a little steep for most, your really have to be good at affiliate marketing to convince people to fork out that kind of doe!

There are memberships out there that will teach your from start on how to be a good affiliate marketer, selling the things that your want to sell at literally half the cost for your training. I don’t feel your need to tie yourself with any one product line, leave your options open and learn how to promote any product online.

Like always I welcome any comments, questions or experiences your may have regarding Global Affiliate Zone, have a great day Mike.

There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to pay high training or support costs, this is a trap that so many fall into. To be more specific there is no reason to pay thousands of dollars for what is really simple step-by-step training that will allow you to promote any business or product online with effectiveness and best of all,  at a very low cost.

Learn how to drive thousands of visitors to your business/products with cost effectiveness. What business owner doesn’t want to cut costs and add that profit to their bottom line or add it back into growing your business.

 It All Starts With A Website

We’re going to start at the beginning which all starts with creating a website, gone are the days where this took considerable skill and was a very time consuming process. Technology has made building a website a streamlined step by step process that takes no skill set and very little time.  The website you are on right now was created using the same step by step format that you have access to for free. You can check out the program I used to create this website  for free here!  Better yet you can watch a video on how I created the main structure for this website in less than a minute.

 

Build A Website To Promote Your Business Online In Minutes

What Do You really Need To Promote Your Business Online?

If you spend any time searching the Internet for ways to effectively promote your business online you’re going to see so many  varying techniques pitched as the “ultimate way to drive traffic to your business online”. It’s really hard to discern what is real and what has been conjured up by some online entrepreneur looking to get rich off your needs.

Having a website to promote your business online is essential, there’s no debating this fact, it’s not short-term, it’s not a fad, it’s been around since the creation of the Internet,  it keeps working for the life of your business.

Many will tell you that Attraction Marketing is the way to go. Many will tell you that social marketing is the way to go. Many will tell you that email marketing is the way to go, and many will tell you that YouTube marketing is the way to go. How about if I told you this is all true, there is a but!!!

Each marketing technique has it’s advantages, but “not” when used on an individual basis. All of these marketing techniques produce optimum results when they are used in concert to make a very powerful marketing campaign for promoting your business or products online.

If you have done your homework you will see that the marketing techniques I mentioned previously can cost you a small fortune to learn and apply to the promotion of your business or products online. Don’t buy into the” pay more and you will get more” sales con. I am going to lay out for you how I learned and use all these techniques with very little or no cost at all to my business.  Check out this low cost training that will help you totally market your business online, it’s free to get started!

  What’s The Cost To Promote Your Business Online?

I am not going to B.S you and say it’s totally free to run an effective marketing campaign for your business online,  it will cost you something,  but definitely not the premium prices I have see thrown around by certain training platforms, plain and simple you are getting ripped off.  If you buy into the dark sides notion that you need to spend hundreds and even “thousands” of dollars to promote your business online, well then,  see you in a few months so I can say I told you so!

Honestly, at the most you should expect to pay $50 dollars a month or less to direct thousands of potential customers to your businesses door step . This includes all your training, as many websites as you need, hosting for your website,  any tools you need to market your products or business online, absolutely everything you need to promote your business online should cost you no more than $50 a month, even less.

 Small Details That Have A Huge Impact

Little things that have a huge impact on the branding of your business and give you that professional look can be found for free if you know where to look. For example,  you can create professional looking logos for your business or website using free services like Canva. Any logo that you see on this website I have created free at Canva.

Simple little things like this and will help complement the promotion of your business online.

 Back To The Website Thing…

Once you have a functional website up and running your options to promote your business are unlimited. I am not talking about the websites like you will get when you join a MLM, those websites have very limited capabilities and to be honest are given to you to make you think you have something of value to make it easier to promote your business online. MLM offered websites serve very little purpose when it comes to getting traffic to your business, they are simply a landing page that will accommodate sales transactions or orders in most cases.

Here’s what you can do with a real website….

With a fully functional, optimized website,  you have a powerful tool at your disposal. You have the ability to create newsletters on your website that you can send out to potential clients that subscribe.  You can create email campaigns by capturing visitors emails that visit your website. You can engage in social marketing campaigns via your website.  You can Guest post on forums that are relative to your business and link back to your website and your offer, and you can create targeted content that will be indexed high in search engines such as Google,  bringing thousands of targeted visitors to your business. These are just a few examples of what you can do with a website,  but it all starts with a functional website. I like WordPress for its user friendly applications. WordPress websites also have thousands of plugins that can be installed with a click of a button adding graphics, charts, ratings, surveys and so much more.

 Using Your Website To Promote Your Business Online

Like I mentioned earlier, it all starts with a website, this is your home-base, this is where everything originates. All of our promotional and marketing will originate from your website. In the following paragraphs I am going to give you some quick examples on how  you can use your website to conduct a very effective marketing campaign that will draw thousands and thousands of visitors to your product/business quite easily and with a very low investment on your part.

Establishing A Brand Using Content Marketing

We’ve established that you need a website as your home base, a place where you can start marketing  your business to the internet public. Content marketing is a technique that is used to build the foundation for your website and the starting point for the marketing of your business online.

Creating content for your website is a very simple process and shouldn’t be something to back away from. Many newcomers to marketing online get a little freaked out with the prospect of writing content for their website, truth be known this is a very simple process that I have personally helped thousands of people with over the years. The platform I use to write content is called “site content” I wrote this very post using this simple writing platform. This platform guides you through every step of producing a high ranking post, oh, did I mention it’s free also!

Site content has pre done templates that allow you to add your paragraph titles, word counts, spell check, offers writing tips and so much more, all you do is fill in some of the subject matter.  As your business starts generating sales you can hire this work out and concentrate on other aspects of your business, I have two writers that work for me on various websites I own, this is me right now, lol! Content that you create on these templates is directly published on your website with a click of that green button.

This is an example of a basic template that I use everyday, just one of many you will have free access to…

 

Basic writing template

 

Keep this under your hat but, I actually use the enhanced dictation feature on my Mac, I am a two fingered bandit but with dictation I can write a post in minutes using dictation. I just speak into my computer and presto, it appears on my template. Do a little editing and I am done. Spell check and grammar check takes care of the rest, I suck at grammar and spelling! Note, don’t try and drink or eat while dictating, lots of editing if you do, trust me I know, lol.

 What Kind Of Content Should You Create?

No business is the same but you are still going to sell a product or a service. To promote your products or business in your content you need to come up with ideas to engage potential customers. For example, if you’re promoting Health and beauty products offered by a MLM like Forever Living, you might want to create a post on ‘repairing sun damage skin’ and link to your recommended product line for this. In many cases the MLM products that you are promoting will come with a lot of promotional literature, benefits, attributes such as no animal by products or testing results that you can leverage and simply spin it into your own words. I can think of quite a few topics that you could post and drive quite a bit of traffic your way.

  •  How to repair damaged hair
  • How to treat athletes foot
  • Get rid of wrinkles with this natural cream
  • Best lotion for a sunburn
  • How to treat an itchy scalp using this premium shampoo
  • Best multi vitamin for kids
  • Natural products for your skin – Forever Living Has you covered!

These are just a few topics but you get the drift. You will learn how to use a keyword tool the will spit out topics that have lots of traffic and very little competition that you can discuss in a post that will bring lots of traffic to your website.

Here’s a quick screen shot of a few searches I did when I was helping someone with their Health and beauty distributor business. Look at the traffic numbers for 1 month in the first column. These keyword phrases (topics) could be quickly discussed in a post and you could capture much of this traffic and even more! Over 1100 searches just for these 3 topics and you haven’t used all the marketing techniques that my #1 business promoting platform offers, your just scratching the surface when it comes to potential traffic to your business.   This keyword tool is also free with your membership!

 

 

I am using forever living as an example because I’m currently working with a lady that is a distributor for Forever Living products. Mercedes ( the ladies name, not a car) creates knowledge based posts, with my help,  around topics like the ones I mentioned earlier in this post.  Her goal is to write posts on a variety of Products Forever Living carries and how they will help you. Mercedes will also do product reviews which are great posts for converting traffic.

Product reviews target consumers at the right stage in the “buying cycle”. Your time is valuable and you need to focus on the segment of the internet that is ready to make a purchase,  there is no one more ready to buy than a person reading product reviews, all they need is a little nudge and some helpful information.

 Now That We Have Content What’s Next?

Don’t be content with creating a website and content, although content alone will generate lots of targeted traffic  you’re leaving thousands of visitors and potential sales on the table by not expanding your reach by implementing more marketing strategies.

Once you have started to developed content for your website the next thing you want to do is start to leverage that content. Once again this is all part of an easy step-by-step process that doesn’t take that long. So now that you have content on your website and you have people coming to your site following this content, you can now start engaging your visitors.

Have a look at the following headlines to get an idea of how you can maximize your engagement with the customers you have and create even more opportunities to draw more people to your website and business.

 How To promote Your Business online Using Social Marketing

Once you’ve created some informative content it really becomes a push button operation from here on.  To share your content with thousands of potential customers on various venues it’s a mere click of a button.

Take this post for example, when I finished creating this post all I did to share it with thousands of followers and potential followers is effortlessly achieved by simply clicking on the various social sharing icons at the bottom of this page.  I can click on any social icon that I’ve opened an account with, it’s that easy and takes no time at all!

You will want to open as many social sharing accounts as you possibly can, you want your content and business to be seen everywhere, on Facebook, on Twitter, On Pinterest, on Reddit, G+, LinkedIn. Sharing is as simple as clicking a button, and the nice part about sharing is it’s free! Actually this whole process of creating content and sharing the content is all free,  there’s  absolutely no reason to pay to have thousands And thousands of the visitors come to your business.

The nice part about sharing content that offers value is you won’t get banned from social platforms for sharing relevant and informative content.

 Using Email marketing To Promote Your Offers

Using email marketing to promote your product or service online is actually a very simple technique to use. Many think that you can just use email marketing on its own and see results, well you’re sadly mistaken.

Its pretty hard to “cold sell” someone into buying, it’s one thing to send someone an email promoting a product but when they go to your site they want to see credibility, they want to see your an authority, and they want to see informative content.

People just don’t open their wallet for anything, they need to feel a connection, they need to feel they’re in safe hands, and they need to feel that you’re an expert on the product that you’re selling. This is where using your content to leverage an email marketing campaign is critical.

Content is what brings people to your website, and from there we can put into play many techniques such as email marketing. To capture someone’s email address off your website you need to offer something of value that in most cases is free. You can offer any ebook that you have access to, you can offer your own newsletter that you created which is very simple to do with a WordPress website, or you can offer an automated alert that they subscribe to when you have new information or a new product or new service to offer.

Once you capture someone’s email address your options are endless. This becomes your direct link with your visitor.

Email marketing is promoted by many online as a discipline that requires a vast array of tools and gadgets such as landing page creators,  lead the page creators, tracking devices and so on. You really don’t need all this when you have a website. Many that promote email marketing services are affiliated with the tools and services they are pithing, they are getting a nice commission from promoting email marketing services that will end up adding to your monthly cost to operate your online business promotions, this is an unnecessary cost. There are inexpensive ways to engage in an email campaign by sourcing out email providers such as “Mail chimp” ( not an affiliate) which actually offers a free service for subscriptions under 2000 and allows you to send 12,ooo emails a month, feel it’s working for you and want to grow your list, simply upgrade when you can afford it, but yet again another free service saving you money!

 Using Forums To Promote Your business online

Using forums to promote you’re business online can be a very effective way to target people that have an interest in what you have to offer. I guest post in many forms, Quora is one particular forum that I use quite often. I literally get thousands and thousands of people viewing questions I have answered for other members and it’s all free press. I always make sure that I drop a link to what ever offer or website I am promoting at that time, this is absolutely free traffic!

There are many forums online you can participate in, reddit, stumbleUpon, LinkedIn, Quora, and many more. There’re forums on home renovations,  automotive forums, health related forms, book forums, sewing forums, really the list is endless.

Here are some of my numbers just from answering a few questions on Quora’s forum. All my answers have links to my products or online business, this is all free traffic. To be honest

 Lastly,  There Are Paid Traffic Sources

I know many outfits out there will pitch using paid traffic sources as a way to get targeted traffic to your business. If your new to the online game this isn’t something I would advise getting involved in until you have a really good understanding of where your traffic is coming from. Not only can this be an expensive endeavour but if not done properly you won’t see the optimum results you should see. You really need to understand your market as well as keyword usage if you are going to advertise on venues such as Facebook, Google, Bing, Yahoo or Twitter. I do recommend using paid traffic sources but not until you have a good foundation and have created a solid base and know exactly who your customers are and where your traffic is coming from.

Once you see the analytics from your content you will know where to focus your paid traffic resources. Did I mention Google Analytics is a free and valuable tool!

 I am Finally Done!

Yup, I have finally stopped blabbering. From reading the process I laid out for you in this post you might get the impression that there’s a lot to creating website and promoting a business, but it really is a simple step-by-step process and by the time you’re done you will have implemented an awesome and effective marketing strategy that will bring thousands of potential customers to your products doorstep on auto pilot for many years to come. The nice thing about this process is it allows you to focus on what’s important and that is growing your business not worrying about how you are drowning under all the financial pressure that needless gadgets and training will end up costing you!

It’s not hard, it’s not overly time-consuming, and it definitely doesn’t need to cost you an arm and a leg to promote your business online. If you have any questions at all regarding this post or promoting your business online,  feel free to contact me at anytime,  I’m more than happy to help you, free of charge of course.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

 

 

Stack That Money Review 2018 – Is The STM Forum Worth $99?

Stack That Money Review 2018 – Is The STM Forum Worth $99?

I hope my Stack That Money review will equip you with the knowledge you need to make an informed decision before you decide to fork out $99 of your hard earned money. I am not an affiliate for Stack That Money, to be honest I never found enough value in the forum to stick around and become an affiliate. Stack That Money requires that you spend at least 6 months in their forum or $594 to qualify as an affiliate, mind you,  this still doesn’t guarantee your acceptance into their affiliate program.

To be honest, Stack That Money’s affiliation requirements kind of got me thinking that they were consumed with the almighty dollar which is never a good sign when I start looking into a program. This really made me dig down and write an in-depth Stack That Money review. Is this forum all about the money or does it really offer members value? Read on and find out!

What is Stack That Money?

Simply put, Stack That money is a forum design to help affiliate marketers network and learn from fellow affiliate marketers. STM offers discounted access to affiliate marketing tools such as tracking services and spy ware that can check on competitors affiliate campaigns.

Unlike most affiliate marketing forums,  Stack That Money offers more than a space to just shoot the shit with other affiliate marketers. STM offers tutorials on how to get started in affiliate marketing and actual case studies from high profile affiliate marketers such as Charles NGO. Charles is a very accomplished affiliate marketer whom I had the privilege of collaborating with as part of a free ebook on finding success with affiliate marketing. So STM does have its upside if you get to rub elbows with people like Charles NGO.

Here’s a quick video that will help you understand what STM is all about….

 Stack That Money,  Is It A Forum For Beginners?

If you watched that video above you get the message loud and clear from STM that their platform is great for beginners. I totally disagree with STM’s claim that their platform is beginner friendly. Yes,  STM does offer a  “40 – day newbie guide” but really that’s the only thing I saw that was truly beginner friendly. I would say if anything the Stack That Money forum is best suited towards the intermediate marketer.

What Kind Of Info Will You Find Inside STM?

Stack That Money is a forum that focuses on many aspects of affiliate marketing, not all. What I found with STM was the community is primarily focused on paid sources of traffic generation which if you are a beginner is not something I would recommend until you really understand who your traffic is and how to convert that traffic. Here are a few benefits of joining Stack That Money…

  • Opportunity to connect with traffic source and network reps
  • Hook up with affiliate network managers
  • Affiliate lawyers and tax consultants are present to answer questions
  • Access to tracking experts and vendor sponsored discounts on their tools and services
  • STM helps organize global hangouts where you can network with other affiliate marketers
  • Opportunity to view traffic source case studies ( I found important details were left out of most case studies I viewed)
  • Access to guides that help you with outsourcing certain aspects of your affiliate business. Once again this wouldn’t be something I would recommend for a new affiliate marketer. Sourcing out is for affiliates that have their business rolling and want to scale up their business.

What I do find of value are discussions relating to the “changing environment” that all affiliate marketers face on a daily basis. For example current Facebook changes to their news feed and advertising guidelines are discussed as they happen which could potentially save you some coin if you are looking at Facebook as a paid source of traffic. I still don’t feel this info is worth hanging around and paying $99 a month for when you can get current affiliate marketing related info and rub elbows with seasoned affiliate marketers on a  multitude of FREE affiliate marketing platforms.

 Would I Pay $99 A Month For A STM Membership?

Nope! Here’s putting the Stack The Money forum membership cost into perspective. I have been participating as an affiliate marketer for several years now, since 2010. I have had quite a lucrative career online to date with many offers to contribute my thoughts and tips to various promotions and ebooks offered to the public. I am considered an expert author on many writing and marketing platforms so I can say from experience that,  although STM does offer some great opportunities to network and gain some valuable insight into traffic generation techniques for example you can find much of what they offer fro free elsewhere online.

I feel STM is still a forum where you need to be vigilant on who you are linking up with and what their ulterior motives may be. Many affiliate marketers look at the $99 monthly STM membership as a cost of doing business with the opportunity to make that $99 back ten fold by selling you their services and affiliated tools.  Some affiliate marketers can predatory in nature and no fee is going to stop certain members from gaining access to a captive audience eager to make it rich online. I feel forums in general are bad places for newbies to source information do to the opportunity forums offer less than ethical affiliate marketers.

I hope there was something you could take away from my Stack That Money review, if nothing else just be cautious if you join and don’t believe everything you hear. You need very little tools to create a great living online, I personally only use two tools that I pay for and they are a keyword tool and an auto responder.

  • Spend More time doing what you want to not what you have to, such as fishing!I 

I am thrilled that you have taken the time to check out my website. I have been operating my online business for over 7 years now and have gained a ton of knowledge in the process that I would like to pass onto you!

Here’s just a little snap shot of some random commissions I have made over the years off one single affiliate item. I have multiple commissions every month from a variety of affiliate products just like the ones shown above. These commissions are all  generated working from home or anywhere in the world I want to work from. I don’t have a schedule and I work when I want!

I love to fish and golf, this last photo was just taken July 22/2018. Fished in the morning, home by 10:30 and had a tee off time at 12, that’s my life now that I work online. It’s really not that hard to enjoy the things you want to do in life, all you need to do is get started!

In Lisbon sept/2018

I am going to give you the “EXACT BLUEPRINT” I used to create these commissions and many more in less than 3 months. This isn’t a push button system it will take work on your part to get things up and running but once you are set up you will find that online income just keeps rolling in with very little effort.

This is by far the most powerful and effective method I have ever come across for making an awesome online income.

Take your time and read this page thoroughly, you don’t want to miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime! Today I am going to cover the following topics:

  • Who I am & why I am qualified to give you advice
  • How I learned to make money online
  • How to get started and work hand in hand with me today while keeping every penny in your pocket

Who’s Mike?

At the time of this post I am just hitting 55. I have owned offline businesses in areas such as helicopter logging, landscape and excavation businesses and I am also a journeyman meat cutter. All my business interests were fairly successful but didn’t offer a great pension and to be honest took a hell of a lot of my time generating just enough money to raise my family with very few extras. I put much of my income into giving my children a life that I felt they deserved which ultimately didn’t leave much in the way of savings for my wife and I to eventually retire on. I have always been somewhat creative so I set out to find a way to generate some income that I could supplement our retirement income with. This led me to the internet and eventually to Wealthy Affiliate. I make it sound pretty matter of fact and non eventful finding Wealthy Affiliate but it was not without some set backs which included my being relieved of my hard earned money on more than one occasion by people claiming to have the ultimate push button money making system which I unfortunately discovered didn’t have the slightest possibility of paying off.

Some of my interests are:

I love playing sports, hiking, fishing, traveling, craft beer and wine. I have a lovely wife and 3 grown children and two grandchildren I love spending time with. Since the creation of my online business I have had the luxury of  traveling extensively, fishing in some beautiful and remote regions of the world.

My wife and I frequently go on wine tours and love spending time just wandering the globe finding quaint little places to have a cocktail or a bite to eat. Traveling and camping with our kids and grandchildren is one of our favourite past times . My wife and I are off to Portugal this year for a month and last year we were in Malaysia for 3 months, all the time my online business is running leaving us with zero financial pressure. Sound like a life you might enjoy? Trust Me It’s Not That Hard To Achieve All This And More!

Here’s How I Built A Thriving Online Business From The Ground Up

When I started building my online business I had literally zero experience online. I didn’t have the foggiest idea on how I was going to make money online all I knew was there seemed to be a lot of potential given the fact that the internet was growing in popularity and people were getting more comfortable shopping online, something I knew I wanted to find a way to tap into. To make a long story short this is what I do to make money online….

I create content that makes a connection with people searching the internet for products/services and I get paid to do it.

With absolutely no skill to start with I have been able to create websites that I use to promote merchants products. People search Google looking for these products/services on Google, Bing and Yahoo and come across my websites and read my posts eventually they click on my links I place in these posts which direct them to the merchants that provide these products and services, a sale is made and I get paid, its that simple and something that you will see you can also learn how to do quite  easily.

Here’s a look at the process….

You can follow this simple process and make boat loads of income or you can use it to earn a nice part time income it really depends on how much time and effort you want to put into it. You can make $50 a day or $1000 a day and up there really are no limits if you are willing to work hard at it. There are literally hundreds of thousands of online merchants that are “DESPERATE” for people just like you that will agree to promote their products and services. Online merchants such as Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Lowes, Home Depot, Wayfarer and thousands of other online merchants have created programs that make it very easy for you to promote their products and services with ease, these programs are called affiliate programs. When you agree to promote products/services for these companies you become their affiliate. This isn’t a complicated process.

You are not responsible for the products, shipping or returns and you don’t have to sell anything.

As an affiliate you simply direct internet traffic and if that results in a sale you get a commission. In some cases you will get commissions just from people clicking on your links. Think of how many billions and billions of dollars are spent online, you only need a small fraction of those sales to make a huge difference in your life!

Are You Starting To See The Potential Of Creating Your Own Affiliate Business? 

There are affiliate programs for almost anything you can imagine. Almost every online merchant offers affiliate programs, like I said they are desperate for people just like you. Wealthy Affiliate teaches you ow to find products to promote and affiliate programs to join. You will also learn step by step how to create simple websites just like this one that can be optimized for promoting online merchants products. I will actually work side by side with you to create an online affiliate business from the ground up. Here’s a screen shot of a member (Jesse) I worked side by side with and helped create a thriving affiliate business promoting a variety of fitness products

When I first started working with Jesse he had zero experience working online just like I had when I started my online affiliate business. Jesse was in college and at the time had his hands full with his studies but he set a very modest time frame to build his online business and just plugged away at it when he had time as you can see for yourself in his post. Jesse is a member at WA who started by taking action and clicking on a link like the one you see here FREE starter Membership which gave Jessie an absolutely free starter membership with no strings attached. Jesse isn’t the only success story at WA there are many members who have created unbelievable incomes through the businesses they have built at WA.

Here are a few recent notables….

 Take note of JohnMiguels commission, that’s just one nights income from one product while he was sleeping. The cool thing is you can follow these guys and many more successful business owners and learn from their experiences all you have to do is click follow on their profile and you have their ear!

Katie, my latest protege at Wealthy Affiliate

Every week I get new members to work with and last week Katie joined WA under a FREE starter membership. Katie is a teacher and a mother of a young one so her time is very limited. What Katie has going for her is the desire to build a better life for her new family. Katie picks a way at her step by step training and in a short 4 days Katie has created a site to drive traffic to her network marketing venture called Pampered Chef.

Just think in 4 short days with a few hours here and there Katie has built her website structure following simple step by step instructions supported by a community of over 1 million members. Katie is now ready to create relevant content that will drive traffic to her new site which will then be directed to her Pampered Chef supplied website. Websites that are supplied by MLM offers are usually not good for anything other than to make sales transactions and learn a little about the products. As I mentioned to Katie the real money in MLM’s such as Pampered Chef is made by recruiting new members, so Katie and I have developed a strategy to focus on recruiting members for her downline, we are looking at promoting Pampered Chef as a Biz Op.

Katie will now start to create relevant content with “my help” that will rank high in search engines and drive traffic to her site. Content creation is so simple that anyone can do it, you don’t need any writing skills to create engaging content with the help of Wealthy Affiliates content creation training. Here’s a screen shot of just one single page that Katie has created in such a short time with Wealthy Affiliates step by step training. By the end of the month Katie will have multiple posts that rank high in search engines such as Google that are relevant to what Pampered Chef offers. This will drive traffic to Katies new site and ultimately to Katies biz op!

The next screenshot is of how I have an ongoing working relationship with  Katie and how we will get to the point in a very short period of time that we are driving lots of traffic to her offer. You can do this with any affiliate product you choose doesn’t have to be a network marketing product, Wealthy Affiliate helps you find affiliate products and online merchants to work with to create a nice online income.

As you can see by the screen shot of Katies site she hasn’t had time to follow my suggestions yet but that’s life, you work on your promotions when you can! I am sure by next week Katies site will be well on it’s way to driving traffic to her offer. You don’t need to spend countless hours or income driving people to a product, few hours here and there and before long you will have good traffic looking at your product!

You have nothing to lose and so much to gain by trying out a free starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate today. WA has a Black Friday sale coming up for only $299 for the year which is a steal, you get everything you need, no extra costs! So get in and have a look, it’s free, they don’t ask for any credit info, if you don’t like what you see simply walk away, no questions asked.

 Here’s a screen shot of my profile and a small sample of how I work hand in hand step by step with members that Join WA to work with me!

Dillon signed up through this website and is now well on his way to creating a profitable online business that will provide him and his family with a great income form many years to come. Here’s another member I work with one on one which doesn’t cost you one single dime extra. Terrance likes sports so he wondered if he could get into promoting some sports related items. Not all sports related items make for good money making products, some products if too broad will have a ton of competition so I work with members to find products that are profitable to promote in areas that they can dominate. Terrance ended up building a site on kids soccer equipment which turned out to be a very nice niche where Terrance in time will be the go to guy for Kids soccer equipment. Here’s how we got to that stage very quickly, within minutes actually…

This is just a snippet of our correspondence which is actually quite lengthly but this gives you an idea of how hands on my support is and will be for you if you decide to join me. For many finding a profitable “niche” ( products to promote) can be time consuming and to be honest a little stressful but this is my area of expertise and I work hand in hand with you to get you through this process very quickly so you can start creating your online business. My goal is to get you up and running as fast as possible. You can also ask any question of the community  by simply typing in your question at the top of your WA screen. Not only will you find immediate training resources but your question goes out to the WA community and it is not uncommon to get an answer within minutes if not seconds.

Are You Involved In Network Marketing And Stuck With No Customers, WA Can Help!

I work with many Network Marketers on a daily basis looking to grow their Network Marketing business. Unfortunately with many MLM’s they don’t offer the support and the training needed to reach the vast and lucrative Internet Market. I work one on one with you to bring your Network Marketing to the next level helping you reach your full potential all you need is to bring the effort. I think you can see why Wealthy Affiliate remains my top rated work from home program for the last 7 years. WA keeps adding more and more training and services at the same low price which leads me to the next topic….

What Will A Wealthy Affiliate Membership Cost You?

This is the sweet part, you don’t have to spend a single dime for  WA’s free starter membership,  its absolutely free to get started building your online business at WA. Wealthy Affiliate has 100% confidence in their program. WA feels they offer the best opportunity for people who want to create a profitable online business from the comfort of their own home and I have to agree.  WA’s FREE starter membership signup requires no payment info or anything like that, you don’t think after doing it for a while building an online income is for you then simply walk away no questions asked. Wealthy Affiliate offers one other membership level which is their premium membership which is completely optional. I feel the premium membership “should only” be  utilized if you want to have access to absolutely everything WA has to offer. A premium membership will give you access to

  • Thousands of custom WordPress website themes
  • Unlimited access to both owners Kyle & Carson
  • Unlimited websites and state of the art hosting
  • Hundreds and hundreds of specialized training module
  • Live weekly webinars
  • Unlimited access to live ask an expert sessions

This is just a fraction of what you get access to as a premium member. You can get your first month premium membership for $19 and $49 a month for following months. There are no up sells inside WA, you will not be asked to pay for anything other than a premium membership if that is your choice.

I Look Forward To Helping You Create A Great Income Online!

I have reviewed hundreds of work from home programs and Wealthy Affiliate still holds my designation as my #1 recommended program for building a work from home business. I make an income from a variety of affiliate products and my success is directly attributed to Wealthy Affiliates program. I now live life on my terms and you can to by taking the first step. Look forward to working with you!

AWOL Academy Review – AWOL Academy Scam Or Worth The Premium Price?

AWOL Academy Review – AWOL Academy Scam Or Worth The Premium Price?

AWOL Academy is a pitched as high end internet marketing training program which asks for some pretty high membership fees.  I will give you my insight into AWOL based on my many years of experience working online.

Read my AWOL Academy review and see if AWOL is justified in asking a premium price for their offer or, if they are simply another scam trying to sell people on the idea that a high ticket price means you are getting a premium product.

What Is AWOL Academy? 

AWOL Academy was created by two former Empower Network members  Keala Kanae and Kameron George. Empower Network was another high ticket item that made a few members rich off of recruiting wannabe internet marketers.

AWOL Academy was established in 2015 to help aspiring internet marketers gain a presence online and ultimately an income through the AWOL training platform. According to Keala and Kameron the AWOL Academy was designed to be the most comprehensive Internet Marketing Education & Mentorship platform on the market.

AWOL stands for “another way of life”,  kind of catchy, I guess that does sum up what participating as an internet marketer gives you, another way of living life to its fullest, it sure has had that impact on my life!

 AWOL Academy Review

AWOL Academy has 6 different program components that relate to affiliate marketing  and utilizing paid sources of traffic generation. It’s really up to you how far you want to proceed with your training at the Academy,  of course how much moola you have at your disposal is a big factor in how far you proceed also,  the training doesn’t look cheap!

 What Are The 6 components That Make Up AWOL Academy’s Training?

  1. AWOL Pro Academy – $99
  2. Inbox Academy – $297
  3. Conversion Academy – $997
  4. Traffic Academy – $997
  5. Masters Academy – $3497
  6. AWOL Elite – $9997

Training costs (without tools and additional services required) if you enrolled in all the training – $15884.

You can get all the training by buying the AWOL Elite package for $9997 which saves you a few grand off the top!

Here are a few basic services and tools that you will need to implement the training that you receive at the AWOL Academy…

  • LeadPages $48 – $79 per month, this is a landing page creation service
  • GetResponse $15 per month and up, this is your email responder service
  • ClickMagick  $12 – $17 per month, this offers a tracking service for your ad campaigns

I received all the training and tools I needed to make literally thousands of dollars in income every month for less than $30 a month! Check out the program I used here!

A Glance At What You Get With Each Component

AWOL Pro Academy – $99

  • Brief orientation video
  • Fill out your profile and contact information
  • Finish the ‘AWOL Coaching’ steps
  • Sign up for a coaching call

This component basically gives you an introduction into affiliate marketing, which is what you will be learning at the AWOL Academy. You will watch a total of 25 videos covering basic topics such as….

  • Introduction to affiliate marketing
  • Choosing a domain
  • Setting up web hosting
  • Installing WordPress
  • Creating a custom email address for your domain

Inbox Academy – $297

This is an emailing course that provides…

  • Introduction to emailing prospects

This course will take you through all the steps, from set up to the following up on captured emails.

Conversion Academy $997

This course is all about increasing the effectiveness and conversion rate of your sales funnel. This course covers topics such as…

  •  Story Telling
  •  Mind Control Hacks
  •  Live Sales Formula
  • Evergreen Sales Formula
  •  High Ticket Sales
  •  Affiliate Tracking

Traffic Academy $997

This course contains considerable amount of decent material in relation to getting targeted traffic through social media platforms such as Facebook. Might want to rethink the Facebook component of this course for the simple reason at the time that I published this review Facebook was in the process of completely overhauling the way it shows ads which could make the Facebook portion of this training obsolete. All in all I felt this component was the best overall value offered by AWOL Academy.

  •  FB Traffic Academy
  •  YouTube Traffic Formula
  •  Instagram Traffic Formula
  • Bing/ Yahoo Traffic
  •  CPA Traffic Formula

Masters Academy $3497

AWOL Elite $9997

This is the pinnacle to your training with the AWOL Academy. This particular course offers everything that AWOL Academy has to offer including reviews of your sales funnels, weekly webinars and access to AWOL Academy’s private FB group.

Is There Any Guarantee That I will Make Money With AWOL Academy?

If you believe everything that Kameron and Keala is saying to you, then the answer would be yes. Unfortunately being the skeptic that the internet has made me I caution you to read the fine print if you think you are going to be eligible for AWOL Academy’s $10,000 money back guarantee.

AWOL Academy has set criteria that must be followed to be eligible for a refund which is as follows….

You need to have bought into the AWOL Elite package which cost $9997.

Complete the 5 pillars of success daily which are as follows…

  • Listen to audio for 20-30 minutes on relevant topics
  • Read 20-30 minutes on relevant topics
  • Generate traffic and leads daily
  • Email your list daily
  • Ask and answer questions within the AWOL community forum

Unless you follow these guidelines to the tee your chances of seeing your $10,000 guarantee are slim to none. My advice is, never go into a program thinking of getting your money back, focus on success not failure!

Is AWOL Academy A Scam?

AWOL Academy actually made my approved category so that should give you an indication of what I think of their program and no I am not an affiliate!

Many would not agree with my giving AWOL approved status but here are my thoughts….

The AWOL Academy feels their training is deserving of a premium price tag and only the market will dictate whether this is reasonable or not. AWOL Academy isn’t a scam because it offers some really good training albeit expensive in my opinion, this doesn’t make it a scam!

Speaking from personal experiences and helping literally thousands of new internet marketers get a start online. Knowing the financial pressures of building an online presence even at the bottom end of the cost scale for training can be an overwhelming experience. If I can give you any advice at all,  keep your costs as low as you can to start and source as much training as you can for FREE!
