Uncategorized / Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Sure, you can find a lot of affiliate marketing training in the online world, but it is often hard to find which ones are legit and which ones are scams. One platform that teaches affiliate marketing is Affilorama. Is Affilorama a legit platform for you to learn how to make money online?

In this review, I will give you the facts about the program, including 5 points that really make Affilorama a good place to learn affiliate marketing. By the end, you will be able to make a decision on whether it is worthwhile for you to sign up.

>> Here’s the Training Platform that Trained me to Make Money Online <<

The Members’ Area

The members’ area, in my opinion, is a little hard to navigate. There are no indications as to where to start. There are a bunch of different posts linked within the homepage that don’t really look newbie-friendly. They are all over place, addressing different issues.

It was hard to find where to start but it was easy to find the upsells (more on them later). I would have liked to see the members’ area just a little more geared towards promoting the free lessons, rather than having the upsells there because it seems to me that they are trying to pitch the upsells to you.

From your members’ area, you are able to go through the lessons (when you find it), seek help, get into the members’ forum and you are also able to take a look at Mark’s blogs.

The Free Membership

In my opinion, the free lessons are great for the newbie to learn about every aspect of the business. As a free member, you will have access to over 100+ hours of free video lessons. However, be advised that there are no tools for you to use, such as SEO tools, website hosting and keyword research tool.

Those free lessons provide background information and helping you understand how things work is great! But nobody has become successful at affiliate marketing just by watching videos. You also need to practice what you learn to make it successful.

If you do choose to go with the free membership, then I suggest that you also SIGN UP WITH WEALTHY AFFILIATE HERE, to take advantage of the free website hosting, SEO tools and keyword research tools that Wealty Affiliate has to offer. Then, you will be able to apply what you learn from Affilorama, as well as take advantage of the free training at Wealthy Affiliate.

There is some training that is oudated but Affilorama does a great job at making sure you see the warnings. I would actually have preferred for them to NOT include them at all.

Upsell #1 – Pathway to Passive

This is a PDF of a “roadmap” to success, reasonably priced at $37. It’s a great read for anybody who is new to affiliate marketing and who needs a bird’s-eye view of the whole process of making money online through this method.

However, keep in mind that it is ONLY a PDF. You’re not getting more access to any part of the platform by investing in this book. If you do find that it is not helping you, you can ask for a refund within 60 days of buying it, which I think is great!

With this book, you get great information on how to build websites ready for SEO, the secrets to choosing a great niche, getting visitors to your website, as well as how to make them purchase and share your content.

It covers a great list of things to avoid as an affiliate marketer and will mold your mindset to how the online world works. having the right mindset will position you for success.

Upsell #2 – AffiloBlueprint

This is where things get interesting! AffiloBlueprint is where you get the real deal, with THE package to start your successful online venture. This is also very reasonably priced at a one-time lifetime access fee of $197. It also comes with a 60-day money back guarantee, for a risk-free trial.

With AffiloBlureprint, you’ll have access to the following;

1) More than 90 videos lessons that explain what to do step-by-step

2) Progress tracker so you know where you’ve reached in your training

3) Downloadable videos and material so you can access them at any time

4) Actionable tasks as homework so you can apply what you learn

5) Sign into the members’ forum 24/7 if you have questions or need help

6) Get AffiloTheme absolutely FREE ($97 value)

7) Get a 1-month free trial of AffiloTools, which is essential for the analysis of your website.

I’m particularly VERY impressed with how Mark does not leave out extra costs. For example, he does mention that a website will cost you around $10 per year and that the AffiloTools section of the website will cost $67 / month.

The value that you get within AffiloBlueprint is amazing and totally worth the $197. However, as important as website analysis is, I don’t think that AffiloTools is worth the $67.

If you want cheaper hosting and great website analysis tools, then upgrade to Premium Within Wealthy Affiliate, which is only $49/month.

So if you want the training within the AffiloBlueprint as well as website hosting, website analysis and other tools, I would recommend to pay the one time fee with AffiloBlueprint and sign up at Wealthy Affiliate for the tools. It will save you money.

Worse case scenario, if you’re not totally happy with AffiloBlueprint, you can get a refund within 60 days of purchase and start the training at Wealthy Affiliate, which will ALWAYS remain at the $49/month. You don’t have to pay extra for the training, unlike Affilorama.

Upsell #3 – AffiloJetpack

AffiloJetpack is a higher ticket item, priced at $997 but the good news, is that it is a one-time fee only. Once you get it, you don’t have to invest into anything else, but the $10 / yearly for your domain and maybe an autoresponder down the road, which will cost around $10 / month.

Remember that it also comes with a 60-day money back guarantee. I have to warn you though, that because it is a high ticket item, that Mark will not just hand you the money back. You have to prove that you have tried what he has told you to do within the lessons and given the training a fair chance.

Not only will he refund you 100% of what you paid, but he is prepared to also give you an extra $100! There’s really nothing to lose by trying it out; either you make money within the 60 days, or you get your money back + $100!

AffiloJetpack is PACKED with the below goodies:

1) Over 90 pre-crafted (and customizable) emails to make email-marketing a breeze!

2) Build your email list with the super-effective, ready-made “bait” that will turn your subscribers into paying customers.

3) Training on how to build your website and incorporate all the tools available.

4) Get 20 content “cheat sheets” to make it easier for you to write up content for your website. Again, completely customizable.

5) If you want to ousource content, you also get a list of top-notch writers you can hire right from AffiloJetpack.

6) 18 ever-green niches you can choose from, that is guaranteed to make you money.

7) Host up to 5 websites that you can turn into money-making machines from the AffiloJetpack training.

8) Get AffiloTools for FREE.

As you can see, there is a ton of value included here especially because it is a one-time payment. If you work full-time on the website for a full-year, you could potentially make everything back. This is the time-frame that I give because it does take an average business (online or offline) this amount of time to see profits.

5 Reasons to Choose Affilorama

1) You get a ton of value for your money – One time payment is very rare for what’s offered.

2) Affilorama has a proven track record – it has been around for 10 years!

3) Lots of training, even with the free mebership

4) It is easy to find help

5) You get your money back within 60 days of purchase should you not be getting desired results

Is Affilorama a Legit Platform to learn Affiliate Marketing?

Absolutely! it is one of the MOST legit platforms that you will ever find on the internet. You get lots of information being a free member and the packages are reasonably priced for the amount of research that has gone into creating them.

One thing that I am concerned with, is the pricing of AffiloTools, which I find is a little steep for what is offererd. But you don’t have to miss out on the great training by signing up with Wealthy Affiliate and even hosting your website for FREE there, without having to upgrade to premium (unless you want the tools).

If you do host your website at Affilorama, remember that you will need to renew your hosting every year, and it could cost you $100 every year.

However, overall, Affilorama is a well-rounded platform with great training. It gives you the chance to make money online whether you only want part-time income or full-time, passive income.

  1. Very well constructed post highlighting the main points of this program. I am familiar with Mark Ling and also highly recommend him and his programs. Thanks so much for your insights. Much appreciated.

  2. Hi and thanks for this in-depth information on Affilorama. I was wondering, when I want to start trying my luck in the affiliate marketing, I understand I need a website.
    If I choose the free starter pack with Wealthy Affiliate, with the free 2 websites do I still want to join the free Affilorama program or do I get all the training from Wealthy Affiliate?

    1. Hello Stefan.

      That’s right! You absolutely need a website if you want to achieve real and great success online.

      To answer your question, I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate over Affilorama any day, just because of the fact that you can host 2 free websites there AND get the free, step-by-step training all within one platform.

      You get a lot of information with Affilorama but as a newbie, if you were to follow the training from both platforms, you could get overwhelmed by the amount of information to absorb. So if you want to follow the training at Affilorama and still want to get a free website to practice what you learn, sign up with Affilorama and Wealthy Affiliate, but make sure to only follow the training from Affilorama, until you become a little bit more experienced.

  3. Very informative post with tons of useful information. I have heard about this program before and it seems to be a good program that is legit only the part that you pointed out for beginners can really be confusing which is not good other than that this is great to have.

    1. Norman,

      I’m glad you were able to learn a few things from my review of Affilorama. It is a good program for sure!

      One point about Affilorama that I don’t like, was that the free lessons are hard to find, compared to the upsells that are in plain view. I think it would have been better to let newbies go through the free training first and then have them upgrade after they finish the free training.

      The second point that I don’t like about the free membership, is that although it has wonderful training, newbies CANNOT apply what they learn on a website of their own within the platform. I’m so grateful for Wealthy Affiliate‘s 2 free websites and free hosting. It makes it a lot easier to REALLY build something significant.

  4. Very informative article ! I looked at Affilorama when I was making a decision on which way to go with training. I decided on Wealthy Affiliate and couldn’t be happier! But in all honesty, I think Affilorama has a lot going for it!
    The free membership was pretty good and I can just imagine what the $997 version was like !
    I don’t think people would go wrong with Affilorama.
    I will say that $37 for a book wrequires that I can hold it in my hands! But curiosity is about to get the best of me! I might order it! LOL

    Have a wonderful day !
    Mike

    1. Thanks for dropping by, Mike!

      I am glad that you are happy with Wealthy Affiliate. I too, have not looked back since I joined and everything that I now know is thanks to them.

      I agree; there are a lot of reasons why Affilorama is good for the right person! There’s tons to be learned from there.

      As for the ebook, I am also the type of person who loves to hold the books that I read. I’m not a fan of ebooks. But if they’re gonna make me money after I read them, then I don’t think I would refuse… 😉

      Thank you and have yourself a wonderful day as well!

    1. Definitely, Deraj. With Wealthy Affiliate, they actually update the training, whereas in Affilorama they mark it as outdated. So how do we know WHAT part of the training video is outdated? From my perspective, it’s just a better bet altogether to sign up with Wealthy Affiliate.

      Thanks for your visit and I hope you have a great day!

  5. Great review!

    I’ve heard a lot about Affilorama, and it definitely has a good reputation. In fact, besides Wealthy Affiliate it’s probably the safest and most reliably reputable tools to help someone start an affiliate marketing business.

    The main issue is just that Affilorama and Wealthy Affiliate are essentially identical. They seem to offer the same sets of tools. But Wealthy Affiliate is notably cheaper.

    Does Affilorama offer a discount if you get the Yearly membership instead of monthly? Wealthy Affiliate only costs about $29/month if you get it yearly.

    1. Hello Jordan.

      You’re definitely right when you say that Affilorama is probably one of the safest and most reliable places online to learn how to make money the right way. 

      The one thing that I don’t like with Affilorama is that you cannot host a free website with them, thus rendering their training useless in the way that you cannot practice what you learn. You HAVE to pay for the next upsell in order to be able to put anything into practice, whereas Wealthy Affiliate lets you host 2 free websites and put into practice what you learn.

      That being said, the monthly premium for Affilorama is definitely pricier than Wealthy Affiliate; see $67 vs $49 per month! There is no option of paying yearly with Affilorama and you will end up with $804 yearly towards Affilorama, vs $359 yearly with Wealthy Affiliate.

      Based on this, I do recommend Wealthy Affiliate over Affilorama, but the free training in Affilorama is a definite bonus!

  6. I too looked into Affilorama but decided to start with Wealthy Affiliate because they give you two websites free to start off with and I can quickly learn and apply all in one location. Also, you can’t beat the price!

    This is a great comparison, though. I do watch their videos as they come up in my inbox. The layout kind of reminds me of Internet Jetset by John Crestani. Basically, modules covering different topics but no real organized step-by-step training system. That was another deciding factor for me because I don’t want to spend hours hunting around and accomplishing little. I’m the type of person that needs some more structure when learning a new skill.

    1. Hey AnnetteCristina.

      My decision was also based on the 2 free website at Wealthy Affiliate, as I knew that if you wanted your own domain and hosting, that nobody else would get you that for FREE! I agree, even with the Premium membership for Wealthy Affiliate, there just isn’t any other platform out there that can compete.

      And what you say about the organization of the videos is true; there is a little bit of fishing to do if you’re looking to go through the training at Affilorama, but at Wealthy Affiliate, it is VERY organized, with a sequence to the videos that will not cause confusion.

      Glad you found Wealthy Affiliate and thanks for dropping by to share your experiences! This will be valuable to help others make a decision on which platform they should go for.
