40 replies
Based on my 4 years of experience and reviews I read so far in this forum, these are the 4 best courses I highly recommend to all newbies.

You do NOT need to invest in all of them. Just one will be good enough and you never have to buy another course. Simply focus and follow the videos and you are good to go.

1. Mark Ling's AffiloBlueprint,

2. Andrew Hansen's Forever Affiliate,

3. Adam Short's Niche Profit Classroom OR

4. Sara Young's Easy Paycheck Formula 2

    I personally enjoy Russel Brunson's DotCom SecretsX as well. The investment is a little bit on the high side though, but the course is very awesome, and Russel is very down to earth with people.

    Hi All. i am a total newbie here. So new that i don't even know how to build a website yet. But i have heard of Andrew Hansen and would like to start off by understanding what is IM as a beginner. Therefore, can anyone advise should i still buy his "unstoppable affiliate" or "forever affiliate". Because I do not know is "forever" a more advance version that I may not understand. Thank you

      Forever Affiliate is a more updated version in regards to coping with Google's latest and even future updates as well.

      He not just teaches you how to promote Clickbank but find and promote from other equally profitable marketplaces as well. One of which is Offervault.

    Hi Amuro thanks for your reply. So am I right to say in your opinion for a newbie like me there is no need to start from "Unstoppable" and I can just go ahead with "Forever" ? And "Forever" is basic enough for me to kick start ? Really thanks a lot for your advise.

      Yes, you should go for Forever Affiliate since it is more up to date. Andrew Hansen is very down-to-earth and realistic in the way he teaches about how to make money online as an affiliate. He also looks at things from a wider perspective such as beyond the main marketplaces of Amazon and Clickbank.

      I just checked out the reviews in this forum and most of them are positive.

      The few that are negative are those who are looking for an easy quick way out and yet not doing what they should to succeed.


      Do NOT be like them.

      Give yourself some time to learn and understand first before you do the right things that will make you successful.


      That's my only advice to you.

        That's my only advice to you.
        Hi. A word about these services... I used Andrew Hansen's Unstoppable Affiliate course, which I subscribed to back in the summer of 2011.
        If I recall correctly, it was called "Unstoppable" because it was designed to enable your site to survive a series of Google aglo. updates known as Panda

        The information was easy to follow, in a step-by-step process. There was lots of useful content. Even advice about building the WordPress site - incl: themes to choose and helpful plugins etc.

        I certainly took the course seriously, implementing all the various action steps. In fact, I worked at it for about 9 months, and didn't cut any corners!!!

        Unfortunately, by April 2012, the Google algorithm change, known as the Penguin, smashed my site's Google ranking, along with [probably] thousands of other sites, or more - Many of these folks would have followed the same (or similar) internet marketing advice.

        It was VERY frustrating. I had just made my first sale - and then my site was effectively blown out of the water.

        Regarding your comment about negative reviews: "The few that are negative are those who are looking for an easy quick way out and yet not doing what they should to succeed."
        ... I haven't read the reviews that you are referring to.
        However, I must point out that my experience did NOT involve looking for the quick solution or not putting in all the required effort.

        Since the Penguin hit in Apr '12, lots of people have seen their sites die off. Google then released a tool for internet marketers to disavow some of their lower quality back-links (The "Disavow Links Tool"), in an attempt to return to Google's good favour. Unfortunately, those who started to use it, didn't see their sites improve, so presumably their sites are still 6 foot under [*].

        Straight after the Penguin, no internet marketer that I came across knew how to deal with the crisis. It was very early days.
        ... In fact, I would still be interested to know what happened to the customers of these services who built their sites Pre-Penguin. "Unstoppable Affiliate", Sara Young's "Insider Profits Club" & "EasyPaycheckFormula1"... Did you make it thru the Penguin?

        As for the Andrew Hansen customer service, I have to say that whenever I asked a direct question, Andrew or his biz-partner Josh got back to me pretty quickly. Which is very good if you consider that I only purchased the $20-ish dollar service, and not the more expensive upsell Coaching program. They were always very polite and helpful.

        What I am concerned about now, is signing up to a new service, and the same thing happening again, further down the road. Which all things considered, isn't an unreasonable concern...

        I have noticed "EasyPaycheckFormula2" which does look interesting.
        Has anyone joined this yet?

        [* RE: Disavow Links Tool. I haven't read up about this in ages. If it did prove to be effective, and not a subterfuge to trick internet marketers... please do correct me]

      I really like Forever Affiliate. I think it is excellent, especially for the new marketer who needs to master the basics first. Andrew does a great job of walking you through everything -- step by step.

      Learning the basics is critical. And that is what Andrew will teach you.

        I've been looking for some feedback about this course since I am on his mailing list and did so to view some of the videos he has and I have found them all to be very informative with information that you can put to use quite quickly.

        Especially for someone as new to IM as I am now.

        I may have to give this one a further look.

        Thanks for the input everyone!

      Andrew Hansen is great, and there are a couple of others out there that are pretty good, but, I prefer Kelly Felix and Mike Long the most, along with their AWESOME course Bring The Fresh. I made my first money online through their easy step by step program.

      Outstanding support, guidance and direction by two of the most honest, ethical 7 figure marketers online who answers their own Phone AND email. Far as I'm concerned, they set the ultimate example of teaching, coaching or mentoring, which ever you want to call it, they've got you covered. The results are the same IF you're willing to work...............Massive Success !!!

        The only thing I don't like about Bring The Fresh is their site layout which is too flashy and sunny.

        Could do a lot better with Optimize Press or cool colors like Andrew Hansen's Forever Affiliate.

        I typed Bring The Fresh into my search engine and I was taken to tbis WF review.

        http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...ing-fresh.html

        This is what I found on the top of the page:

        FULL REVIEW: Bring The Fresh - Can You Really Make Money With Bring The Fresh? CLICK HERE FIRST: Watch How I Helped 26,461 Average Ordinary People Make $5,000//Month In 30 Days Without A Website Or Having to Pick Up The Phone.. Ever!

        I clicked on the link. It took me to some other program Big Idea Mastermind. with a video by a chap named Vic Strizheus with the Ferrari and the villa by the Sea in Miami Beach explaining his Big Idea Mastermind program

        and asking for an email address to receive videos #2 and #3.

        This is all a tad bit confusing.

        What does this Vic Strizheus Big Idea Mastermind have to do with Bring The Fresh?

        Looks like a different program with a different chap.

        Why is one guy trying to sell some other guy's program??

    Hi Brantley, In reply to your comment on Kelly Felix and Mike Long's Bring The Fresh I don't dispute it is indeed a very good course with all the support thrown in.I have been to their introductory site and all looks great except for one thing:
    Their course requires a lot of upsells and their course fees are quite steep.Not that suitable for a newbie with low budget trying to stretch their wallet.
    I'd say Easy Paycheck Formula 2 would be a better recommend as it introduces all FREE methods to run the entire course.

    Scamite, really? it does NOT require any of the upsells. They are just there as options. If you want a business you will have to spend some cash getting things going, but how and how much is up to you.

    I understand that they are all good programs, and a newbie should just select the one that appeals to them the most. However, and this is a very big however, none of them will work unless you do!

    The key is good teaching followed up with dedicated and relentless application of all that you have been taught. Most people fail because they give up, which makes determination the essential quality you need once you have decided on your program.

    If I want to create an internet marketing course, most likely I will use Mark Ling's business model and Andrew's model in follow up emails.

    Mark Ling gives away a free yet highly valued product called Affilorama followed by his paid products of AffiloBlueprint, AffiloJetpack, AffiloTheme and recurring AffiloPremium.

    He also has a forum whereby he builds a community of like-minded internet marketers to share with one another valuable information. Including reviewing each other's websites.

    For Andrew, you might want to read my other thread.

    1. Nothing
    2. He's one of those guys that, when it doesn't work immediately, goes on to something else. I can tell you that for the price, BTF is the most value added course there is, regardless of some of the other courses that you can have as well. It gets updated regularly. The forum is excellent and frankly the techniques work. I've got a site that I set up in October last year. It hit #1 in 2 weeks. And stays there. And has made me around $500 without me doing a darn thing. And that's on a $17 product.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[8269376].message }}

    The reason why I put Mark Ling on top is because he has a forum in members area whereby like-minded individuals get to know one another and have their sites critique.

    He also includes a module of What You Should Do If Your Site Is Not Making Money.

    Now just this alone is absolutely priceless than all other IM courses and even upsells put together.

        For your info, Mark Ling is a practical and no-nonsense type of marketer having joined his course and getting my sites critiqued by him.

        He is not the type telling you if you need to make money fast, you should sign up for his course immediately as best solution.

        He will tell you to get a job and clear your debts first before even going into internet marketing.

        When getting your site critique, he will ask you a lot of questions. Some of which like:

        1. How did you do your research?

        2. Is it according to what he teaches in AffiloBlueprint or from someone else?

        3. How do you create content?

        4. How do you drive traffic?

        5. Did you build the list and send emails regularly?

        6. What are your conversions?

        7. How do you track your visitors?

        8. Did you make an effort to improve your site if it does not make you money or the amount you want?


        Or if you have to, show him what you have done in PDF format.

        I hope this will help you to have a much better understanding should any of you decide to sign up for Mark Ling's course.

        Compared to Andrew Hansen, Mike Long, Kelly Felix and probably other marketers, Mark Ling can be very strict at times. And AffiloBlueprint is just a normal video course. Imagine if he were to have a coaching program - which has not happened yet but I don't discount that from happening, you might want to think twice or three times before joining.

        If you don't get your mindset right, he will not hesitate to tell you upfront even if you may not like what he said.

        But that is good as it helps you to be on the right track and have a clearer mind of what it really takes to succeed online.

            Mark Ling's Affilo Blueprint. Great - looks like I got that choice right! Now back to the program. I have not got far enough to know how good it is - but I can tell you it is one of the easiest to listen /watch / save / read. Whatever your learning style it is well catered for. You stay focused by answering questions at the end of each lessons.

    If you cannot answer any of his questions he asked you in regards to your site, it obviously means - from his perspective - that either you have not gone through the AffiloBlueprint or you have gone through but have not yet implemented what you learn.

    If you look at all those questions I mentioned carefully, you will notice that most are titles of the modules he covered in AffiloBlueprint if you have bought the course. So if you have gone through the course and apply what you learn accordingly, there is no way you cannot answer his questions or show him what you have done.

    I am not in the position to say what is right and wrong considering the fact that different people have different speed and level of understanding the fundamentals before putting them into action.

    But what I can and will tell you is that unlike most internet marketers who claimed to have limited education before doing IM, Mark Ling is very well-educated and a complete perfectionist in doing things. Look at all his products and you will know what I mean.

    The salesletter, squeeze page and members area etc.

    He himself also said in AffiloJetPack salesletter 3 years ago he was pursuing a university degree at the time of doing IM. More importantly he likes to know and analyze the whole picture before coming up with a complete solution that best benefits everybody. As in every single detail from how you do research to building email list.

    When you or probably anybody asks him a question, he likes to verify your intentions or main reason why you are asking that question before diagnosising and providing a solution that best suits you.

    Watch this video and you will know what I mean.


    Hope this will give you a much clearer picture before you decide whether AffiloBlueprint is best for you.

    Hey amuro and the rest,

    Just wondering does Affilioblueprint still work now compared to when it was first released?
    One thing about BTF is that it is updated regularly.

    Are the strategies of all these affiliate marketers the same?
    I used to follow Matt Carter as well - but he seems to be diversifying to the drop-shipping niche and not really putting his bet on Google algorithms.

    Would love to hear your comments.

      I used to follow Matt Carter as well - but he seems to be diversifying to the drop-shipping niche and not really putting his bet on Google algorithms.

      Would love to hear your comments.


      Yes, it still is.
