Which affiliate training should I pick?

by j9hagop 26 replies
I stumbled onto this forum today and have found it to be very resourceful. This is my very first post, I have blogging experience and am looking to take the dive into affiliate marketing. I am considering 3 training programs to signup too an am having a hard time deciding.
The 3 are,
1. Affilorama
2. Wealthy affiliate
3. Niche Hacks

Does anyone have any insight on which program to pick?

Thanks in advance to any responses I get.

    I have had a brief look at these products a while back. However, I found a great training program that taught me a lot about Blogging as an affiliate marketer, I'm a member to this day and keep learning new "Tricks"

    I've never tried those 3. I've heard ok things about affilorama and wealthy affiliate years ago (I haven't heard much lately).

    IMO the best 2 affiliate training programs right now are aff playbook and stm.

    You should get free training from places like the warrior forum and myfirstdollar.online

    your training is the least of your worries. You have no idea how much time and money you're going to be investing in practicing what you've learned. Not only that but you need to learn how to set up and configure wordpress, learn cPanel, SEO. Which is goign to take months to understand because the market makes it seem difficult. SEO is the easiest thing you'll ever learn. Budget + backlinks + logical anchor text ratio. You'll rank for anything.

    You shouldn't buy any of those courses. You should save your money for marketing tools.

    Affiliorama has enough free training on their blog to skip the payment

    wealthy affiliate is a swiss army knife it's seriously smarter to just use it than studying it. No company has ever streamlined the ability to launch a WP site. but if you aren't educated in MMO, don't consider buying it

    Niche Hacks ...meh

      This quote from Project Sniper is probably the best quote I've ever heard/read about affiliate marketing or any marketing that involves organic search results.

      [Begin Wiseowl]: I disagree here though.... Autoblog Blueprint was a great program for streamlining blogs, even if hey weren't auto blogs. It's outdated now, so don't go buy it, but in it's day it was the awesome.[/ End Wiseowl] .

    to be honest, in past 2 years i have spent a hell of a amount in buying courses hiring mentors , however none proved to be beneficial for me . everyone took money and started the course or training as a expert which i was not. secondly they take alot of money and promise 10% of that within first week, you get 10% in first week and then nothin. thirdly those courses are cheap . however require tons of investment that you can not afford.

    The best way IMO to get lots of answers to your question is to make use of the search feature of this forum. Affiliate marketing training has been discussed in detail about one zillion times on this forum so there is lots of info.

    If you search for those different course you will get results with far more information then will appear in one thread.

    As a general suggestion I would not be in a huge hurry to take a course but take the time to study affiliate marketing. There is an enormous amount of free info that can help you, both on and off of this forum.

    This is a perennial question we have all asked just starting out. And you can spend a lot of time and money looking for the 'best' program.

    As others have already noted there is lots of free training available and Warrior Forum is a good place to start.

    The first training program I ever purchased was Affilorama way back in 2010. I thought the material was comprehensive and well put together and I did get my first website built. Not that it has generated any income.
    Certainly I ended up with a good basic understanding of the Wordpress world. Affilorama has changed a lot since then and with what I understand now I likely could get most of the information at no cost participating in forums and online communities.

    Also tried Wealthy Affiliate for a while but found that the constant need to create posts (which you appear to have done) for the site you build was too much of a chore. The other thing to bear in mind is that it is a subscription membership so you are up for regular payments (monthly or annually) so you are locked in to their world.
    The tools they offer are quite good (Keyword research and sites) but if you want to leave you lose access to your site and have to transfer it out.

    Give serious thought to free options before commiting to paid course. Ask questions here and I am sure you will get plenty of assistance.

    I believe it's not the program you should be concerned at - it's how great products are in these programs. Scour for niche-related products that are of best quality and use to people. A lot of these products are bad , let me tell you. So choose well.

    There are other affiliate program aside from these 3, like CJAffiliate, Clickbank and JVZoo. But just what I've told you, look for great products, not programs. Good luck!

    It always depends on your passion, it's better to choose something that makes you happy. Then you will put a lot of effort, because you like it, and you will definetely have success.
