    A vote for Michael Franklin... by the end of 2 weeks, you'll be forced to have an Amazon Affiliate site up and running.

    The other courses are all quite good as well, but if you need a kick in the pants, go with Michael's mentoring program. You'll actually be creating a site as you learn.

    I have not purchased any such a course but I've heard it looks like Jan Roos has a pretty good offer.

      You can't go wrong with either Jan Roos or Michael Franklin for Amazon review sites. I have taken both courses and get sales from both formats.

      Michael Franklin is by email which he personalizes based on your product. It is 14 lessons plus some new training for when your sites are up. He provides a theme for no additional charge.

      Jan Roos course is a series of video. The recommended theme which is excellent costs a little more.

      It really depends on your learning style.

    • Jan Roos' course. Just get it. Trust me. Look around in the WSO section for it. You won't regret it.
      All the best.

    I think you should check out Jenn Dize... she's got a very easy to follow 15 day course with daily steps to get your first site up.

    It's really good. I liked Dan Brock's course but I think it's easier to get started by building sites around a specific product... instead of a review site for several products. That's my opinion... then to scale them consider checking out Dan's course.

      Ill try that one too

    I think either Sara Youngs Easy Paycheck Formula or Dan Brocks Deadbeat Super Affiliate are the best! Dan even has the Deadbeat Super Affiliate product as a WSO.

    Another vote for Michael Franklin's course.

    I keep intending to try out Jan Roo's because I hear these two courses compliment eachother very well. They both have excellent reviews so you'll do fine with either one. Students are getting results from both systems.

    The Deadbeat Super Affiliate course by Dan Brock is an above average course to get for Amazon sales. This course can get you up and running and has some advanced material in it also.

    And it's less costly that the Jan Roos WSO or the Amazonian Profit Plan, each at $97.

      I've had good early results with Jan Roos course. It's also easily outsourced.
      Probably look at the Amazonian book as well.

      Most of the course that everyone mention above is quite good. but I still vote for Michael Franklin cos at the end of the course u already finished your amazon site. If you are like me who need someone push to take action you better start with Michael Franklin

        Preach it!

        All the other courses are good complements.

        I'm pretty sure that if I bought the other ones like Jan's, Sojourn's, Daniel's, Paula's, etc, as good as they are, I would've done absolutely NOTHING and they would gather digital dust on my hard drive.

        Something that happened way too often.

        With Michael's coaching, you REALLY take action.

    dan brock deadbeat product affiliate program - it is a series of about 20 videos. Of all the video courses this has the most time spent listening to videos. Does cover the basics of finding products to promote, writing articles, building backlinks etc. The support system is very shabby. I put in a ticket about a week ago and nobody has bothered to answer it yet. You will get emails trying to sell you his other products as well as products for which he is an affiliate. Does provide the url of one of his sites for you to look at. There are so many videos that it can be easy to listen to three at a time, take a break and not come back to them for days.

    jan roos - another video course. Not as long as dan brocks. Jan comes across as being very real and not someone out to sale you like dan brock might come across. Video are only about 12 to 20 minutes long each. Does give you url to 2 of his sites for you to review. The wordpress theme he recommends is a premium theme that you have to buy. Working with the setup of the images on this theme is a pain in the butt and I did not use it for that reason. Cover the basic information that you need to know to get a website up and running. You will need to have discipline to go through the videos and do the work yourself. Jan will answer questions you ask via email and is very responsive in his responses. He goes above and beyond in answering questions. You do not get many emails from him selling products like you do with dan. The emails that you do get are valuable and provide recommendation on products that might help your website.

    Michael Franklin - 2 week email teaching course. This course keeps you accountable. Someone already said that you will definitely have a website up and running after 2 weeks with this course. You can do the course at your own pace and not do every day for 2 weeks. I did lesson 1 and then waited over a month to do lesson 2 and 3. Then Michael worked with me and I did the rest of the lessons over a 5 day period. He gives you feedback on your choice of products. In fact he completely nixed the first 3 product categories that I was considering. Went back and picked 3 more and he approved them. Today I have 3 websites on all 3 product categories. Michael has answered every email for me during the course and even after the course. He has setup a new email for graduating students to use to ask questions. you will not get emails with sales from Michael. Emails from him contain valuable information. He provides url of one of his websites that you can look at.

    Amazonian profit plan by 2 ladies from warrior forum but cant thing of their name name. This is just a .pdf file that is expensive (IMHO) for what you do get. Covers basic information on selecting products, building website etc. The best value in this program is their section on writing articles for website. They recommend that you write 1,000 word articles which is double what the above 3 guys recommend. I do see some value in this and I have implemented this in my websites. I think this product would be better at a lower price. It does leave gaps in what I think a newbie needs to know to get started with amazon. You do get sales emails from them but not as much as you get from dan. They do not provide the url of one of their sites for you to review but you can type in the first sentence or two of their sample article and find the website that way. you can google the 2 girls name and find articles written at article directories and click the links in author section back to their websites. Their websites have been around for several years and have high pr for a product review sites. Some were PR4 and PR3.

    Overall if I had to rank them I would pick Michael Franklin first followed by Jan Roos. If you can afford them I would actually recommend that you get both of them. Watch Jan's videos and then go through Michael's course. You can pick and chose tidbits of information for each guy and use the ones that you think will work best for your website. After that it would be Dan Brock course since it is video and majority of people are visual learners. i would put the amazonian profit plan last because of the price and my perception that it is lacking in details that will help a newbie. Though like I said before, their section on writing articles (which is the bulk of the course) is very good.

    There is also a wso by sojourner out that makes amazon product review websites. I do not have this one. I decided against purchasing it because she would not provide a url to one of her sites for us to review. She is afraid of competition which I think is absurd and that is why I did not buy it. So have no feedback on it.

    Hope this helps. This is just my opinion on all of the products which I do own all of them.

      Respectable review of all 4 major Amazon courses. I agree that that Michael's is the best because it's the only proactive one. You only missed Neil V's course hihi

    I have done Dan Brock, Jan Roos and Michael Franklins courses and got value from each one
    Personally my favourite was Jan's course he has a very practical video show and tell SEO based approach that works well for Marketers with a bit of previous knowledge. He has developed a really effective optimised wp site set up that does well in the search engines.
    Michael's as others have stated is an 2 week email coaching course and in my view would work really well for less experienced marketers. Michael is very attentive and responds quickly to individual queries. You will end up with a working site within a few days I did 3 at once and have made money from all 3 sites since.
    If you take action I don't think you can't go wrong with any of these 3 programmes.
    Good luck in your decision.

    I have tried Sara Young's Easy Paycheck Formula. It is very step-by-step and good for complete newbies.

    Michael Franklin's coaching is excellent, too.

    Sara Young's program is based on blogger and e-zine articles, so no hosting and domains are necessary. The way she teaches you to write articles does work.

    Michael Franklin's method uses WP sites and in a certain way is easier. It does not require you to write articles, but does rely on SEO for traffic.

    Too much to choose from, heh?

      I agree with you, DebbieD, about the Sara Young Easy Paycheck Formula course.

      It provides good value. It gives a step-by-step approach.

      And it's great for newbies.. and those not so newbie-ish but wanting to start the Amazon thing.

        Michael Franklin's course is excellent. He gives you daily assignments and you complete each piece and then he reviews it and tells you what you did right and/or wrong and advises you on what you need to do. If it takes longer, then he is ready whenever you get ready for the next piece. If you have questions, he answers them quickly through email. I highly recommend his Amazon course.
