IMgrind vs affplaybook

15 replies
I am interested learn more from successful affiliate marketers from this two private forums which one will warrior recommend me more?

Pros of IMgrind:
-Learn from two highly experience IMers Ryan gray and Ralph Ruckman. The first one is a longtime successful super affiliate and the other is a former owner of a huge ad network.
-affordable monthly membership fees
-chance to learn ad agency marketing methods as imgrind owners also owns revivedmedia

Pros of Affplaybook:
-Much older forum than Imgrind thus have much more exposure to top affiliates
-have superaffiliates as members such as Ian fernando and jonathan volk
-have affportal toos intergrated into the forum

As listed above both forums have awesome resumes thus I have no either which one to choose. If you have experience in either forums please tell me why i should choose either of one.

Please don't tell me just get the free resources from internet as I am interested in freebies. I am only have interest to learn from a group of the best affiliate marketers.

Fyi I am still at the beginner level of affiliate marketing and please dont recommend me Stackthatmoney at this moment. I am only looking for recommendations on imgrind and affplaybook.

    I'm a member of both as well as stack that money.

    All of them are good, it depends what you want to do.

    If PPV is your choice, then Affplaybook gets my vote as your membership also includes a lot of useful PPV tools.

    If you want to get in to mobile marketing, then IMGrind is your best bet.

    Overall, the most active and up to date forum is probably stack that money. Affplaybook does have a lot of guides, but some of them haven't been updated in a while. IM Grind has some awesome guides and tutorials, but is less active as a forum than the other 2.

    I think any of the 3 would be a good investment, but as to which one is best I think it all comes down to what specific thing you want to learn

      bluebagger thanks alot for the reply but sadly at this moment I am not prepared to join STM yet. lol anyway, when you mention affplaybook is much more active, is it towards frequent newbie threads or threads by experienced affiliates?

      what do you mean by IMgrind is lesser active? does ryan g and ruck actively reply to questions?

      I am much interested to learn more abt affiliate lead generation and of course a private forum that is newbie friendly.

      And between the 2 which one has more experienced aff as members?

        Ryan and Ruck are both very active on the IM Grind forums as well as a couple of other senior members. All I meant was that of the forums, stm seems to have the most member activity. That doesn't mean it is better, as it is the quality of the activity that counts.

        You'll find all of the forums to be newbie friendly and to be honest, most of the value you will find will be in guides and tutorials that have already been made available to forum members. Just the information in those (at all 3 forums) as well as what you can find from other threads will give you plenty of value for your membership cost.

    Both are great resources..
    I think the bottom line is what portions of affiliate marketing at you looking to learn? What traffic sources are you looking to learn, etc?

      FYI, Stackthatmoney isn't good. Don't waste your $99. The mods don't really care about your success IMO.

      It took days to get a response via PM... by the end of the back and forth PMs... a quarter of my monthly subscription was used... AND my questions weren't properly answered. I had to email David from AFFplaybook and ask him to help a brother out.

      Btw, I'm not part of any paid forums. Really, when people say you can find good information by yourself using FREE forums... it's all true. The crappy part it digging through all the usual BS.

      So yeah you can save a lot of time with paid forums... but once you find what you're looking for... I would bounce and save your money.

        Haha..anytime

        sakhar1 - obviously I'm biased, and I don't mean this to sound the way it does, but there's no other way to say it - there's a reason I have 10x more members than either of those forums.

        I also have more success stories, case studies, and lessons (yes, up to date ones). There is no 'best forum' because everyone learns differently. Every IM forum has their own approach. My approach is very example based, and step by step. This isn't something I have found with the other forums.

        You don't need to join a forum to be successful. You don't even need to read free forums to be successful. When I first started out, I didn't read forums for probably the first couple years.

            We have a mix of new and experienced members. The forum is very active.

            If you're really undecided, or this is going to take a big portion of your budget, I would recommend not joining a forum right now. You can go as far as you want on your own really, nothing is stopping you.

              I was kind of curious about AFFPlaybook so thank you David for chiming in. I only have experience with IMGrind and unfortunately it's only with their DVDs and guides (which are excellent btw) and not their forum so if anyone can give more pros & cons, i'd be interested in hearing those too...

            I would go with affplaybook , Imgrind is good if you want to focus on Mobile and lead gen , However David is really active and provides great case studies and he runs follow along contest that are very helpful . Both are really good .

    Both are very good but Imgrind seems to be more focus in mobile marketing since they are the creators of mobitrax. If you are doing CPA, i would put these 2 as my top reads. Both have very good info as well as regular updates
