But I don’t actually know that much about the basics of internet marketing anymore.
This shocks a lot of people who’ve seen how successful I’ve been over the last few years. They’ve seen the car. They’ve seen my snaps in Dubai that I spammed Insta with.
My second home.
Jealous? They were too. But don’t hate me. I’m trying to be real here.
It actually got a little embarrassing when one of my cousins put me in touch with his college pal, “because I knew everything about the internet marketing game and had made myself a success.”
Well, sorta… Yeah. Only the thing is, I’ve been focussing so hard on my own Local Lead Generation business (more on that later) that I haven’t really had my finger on the pulse of the IM world for a few years now. I do know the ins and outs of Local Lead Generation—but generic affiliate marketing stuff a newbie might look for? Nope—not really.
So this guy Trevor (my cousin’s buddy). He wanted me to teach him some basics. But I didn’t know where to start. When I tried to explain, he wasn’t impressed. I felt like a fraud. How did it even get like this?
Trevor when I told him I didn’t know anything about Facebook marketing.
You see, stuff changes quick in IM. A few years back I took a course by this guy John Crestani. It was called Super Affiliate system.
If I’m totally up front with you. I don’t remember much about it. Only Trevor mentioned that they’d re-done the course and it was now even better.
Since my mind is a bit like a sieve sometimes (I can barely remember what I had for breakfast)—I decided to give his new course a go.
After all, I had a reputation to uphold. People thought I knew this stuff. But the truth is—I’ve forgotten more than I’ve remembered when it comes to the basics of affiliate marketing. I know that’s what guys like Trevor are looking for when they first get into this business.
They want to quickly find a niche, build a site, rank for it and promote a product. Simple, right? I haven’t forgotten THAT much.
But what about all these courses? There are so many of them. How many can actually give a guy like Trevor the info he needs? How many of them can help a guy like me?
So here’s my Super Affiliate review. Actually, it’s not just a Super Affiliate review. It’s also a John Crestani review. Who is this guy? Can he help you? Can he help me? Let’s check this dude out and see.
Who is John Cestani?
There are so many names in IM these days, it can be hard to remember them all. I know I had a vague idea about John Crestani back in the day, but I didin’t know if this was for a good reason or a bad one.
Everyone’s trying to make themselves into a brand these days in IM. It’s how they try and stand out from the crowd. Trouble is, there’s so many of them—that’s getting harder and harder.
So I decided to do some digging. Who actually IS John Crestani? Is John Crestani a scam? And is his new Super Affiliate 2.0 actually any good?
First thing I found was that there were published articles about him in Forbes and BusinessInsider. Great, right? Ummm….
I’ve got news for you like I had news for Trevor when he pointed this out.
You see, Forbes and BusinessInsider might seem like some pretty hefty sources. But they’re not.
I used to do a LOT of guest posting, and you can actually pay people to get on these sites for you. I’m not entirely sure how stringent their editorial process actually is. You can pay some dude on a freelancing site like $300 for a Forbes article.
So an article on Forbes IS NOT proof something is legit. Bear that in mind. This sort of marketing ploy works great trying to convince people like Trevor.
Now I’m not saying John paid for his own Forbes article. But just bear it mind. It’s possible.
After searching around and finding more reviews. I was still struggling. There’s tons of stuff about John out there. Most of it looks legit. But the only real way to find out if John’s stuff ACTUALLY PROVIDES VALUE?
Take the course.
So I did. I signed up to Super Affiliate and jumped right in. I pretended I knew nothing about IM so I could help Trevor out. This wasn’t hard. Remember? I’d forgotten most of what I new anyway.
Super Affiliate Review
The first thing you’re wondering—is Super Affiliate a Scam? You might have even slammed “Super Affiliate System scam” into Google to find this world-class review. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with a bit of self-hype, right?
No, it’s not a scam.
Phew. At least we got that out of the way.
But is it actually any good?
Ah… this is going to take slightly longer to answer.
If you want a quick answer. Then the answer is: it depends.
“Bro! I need more detail”
Here’s the detail:
I signed up to Super Affiliate and gave it a spin. Signing up was easy. You should be able to manage. I mean, when you’re parting with this sort of cash you’d expect them to make it as easy as possible.
Oh yeah… that reminds me. I forgot the mention the price. Wait for it…
John Crestani’s Supper Affiliate costs… $997!
That’s a big chunk of change. Thankfully by Local Leads gig was going well so I could afford it. This had better NOT be a scam!
So what’s actually in Super Affiliate?
It’s a 6-week course that aims to get you profitable by the end of that period. So it’s mostly training material. Some of this is good stuff. Some…not so much. For this sort of money, I expect the best.
Super Affiliate is aimed at people who are just starting out in internet marketing. That’s good news for Trevor, who still wasn’t sure how to turn his computer off properly.
When I started using Super Affiliate, I remembered a bit more about the old version that I’d done a few years back. The good news: this one is way better. They’ve really fine-tuned some of the info and there’s plenty of value here. Ok, maybe not a grand of value. But plenty.
And if you’re still worried about the cost—I don’t blame you. But there’s more good news here. Super Affiliate comes with a 30-day no-questions-asked money back guarantee. So while that doesn’t take you quite to the end of the 6–week course—you should already have a good idea of whether you’re going to be profitable or not.
Within four weeks, I had actually started to make a few sales. Great! Only they added up to about a grand total of $100. That isn’t to be sniffed at. The first few weeks (or even months) of any internet marketer’s career are normally always slow.
While that hundred bucks hasn’t come close to paying off the course fee, it does give you a good idea that this stuff is scalable. You can make money with the info in this course, and things should get easier as you learn more.
There are actually plenty of useful tools in the Super Affiliate System. The stuff on targeting data and ad swipes was dope. There’s also nearly $900 in coupons for paid traffic! This really helped, and while I wasted the first few campaigns, by the end of it I’d got a few more ideas that should be much more profitable if I want to put some more ad spend in.
And oh yeah—while the course is expensive, actually setting up your first ventures ISN’T. It shouldn’t cost you more than a few more bucks to get going, and starting to see if you can make money or not.
The first week of the course was mostly pretty basic stuff. I didn’t need it, but you might. I started to realize I might know a bit more about this game than I thought. I don’t need my hand holding through setting up web pages or signing up to clickbank. But there was some cool stuff in there on landing pages.
The next few weeks things started getting better. I was actually learning something. It was either something I’d forgotten, or actual new info that wasn’t around when I was starting out. Either way, it was all good stuff.
And what’s the best thing about Super Affiliate? The community.
Yeah, there are so many top dudes in here. Most of them are pretty happy to help a newbie like me. Or like I was pretending to be.
If you want to make the most out of this course, you need to get stuck in to the community. That’s probably where most of the value is. The networking opportunities are off the charts. Even if you just use it for a bit of motivation, it’s gold. There are some far harder-working people in there than me.
I even met this guy who I managed to link up with and he ended up sending me a ton of traffic. For free. You can’t get better than free traffic. I’m sure a lot of that actually contributed to that massive $100 I made. Don’t worry, I won’t spend it all at once.
Joking aside, there was some cool stuff on Facebook traffic and advertising in the course. A lot of this was pretty new to me as that has changed a lot in the last few years. There are also templates and stuff for landing pages and plenty of other material. Some of this I’m actually gonna use in my other business—so there’s plenty of value here.
And what about John?
Oh yeah, you wanna know more about JOHN! Not just the nitty gritty of his Super Affiliate System. But you wanna know about John Crestani himself.
Well, John started out broke and with a dream. He actually cites Time Ferris’ legendary book The 4 Hour Workweek with turning his life around. It gave him the motivation to get up off his ass and start actually working towards something.
With the stuff he learned from the book, he created his own business that was pulling in hundreds of thousands a month.
But wait a minute… I’m getting all this info from the same place you can if you search for it yourself. Yeah… that Forbes article and other similar places. But is it actually legit? Is John Crestani a scam? We’ve already established that it isn’t that hard to get a Forbes article.
The truth… I don’t know.
But what I DO know is that John SEEMS like a legit guy. I’ve actually chatted to him a few times online. He’s always there to answer any questions you’ve got. I wouldn’t expect any less after he took a grand of my hard-earned money.
So if you’ve read his rags-to-riches tale—you won’t necessarily be any the wiser. It’s the same sort of story all these guys have. I’d rather judge John on the merits of his actions, and on how useful his products are.
Is Super Affiliate really worth it?
So how good are his products? They’re…. good.
$997 good? I’m not so sure.
The reality with this stuff is that if you’ve got the time and inclination—you can find plenty of this sort of info elsewhere. A thousand dollars is a lot of money. It’s a great option if you simply haven’t got the time to do extensive research and want someone to fine-tune everything for you.
But if you’re on a budget or are broke on a beach like John was—then his Super Affiliate System probably isn’t for you.
The best part of the course is probably the community, as well as the info and coupons for the ad spend.
This sort of value is actually hard to find elsewhere. So Super Affiliate isn’t a complete NO from me. It’s a maybe.
If you want something that’s been a massive YES for some time now, then you need to check out Local Lead Generation. It took me a while to find something this good, but now it’s normally the first thing I’ll recommend to anyone. With Local Lead Generation, you can have your own slice of digital property where you can start collecting some fat monthly rental checks sooner than you might think. You’ve gotta check it out.
Should you quit your job to become a full-time Vasayo
You are reading this Vasayo review for either of two
reasons. First, you want to decide if Vasayo is worth your investment. Second,
you have already invested, but the program is not working for you.
The good news! In this comprehensive review, I will explain
to you each and everything about Vasayo. I will help you decide whether their
health products and business opportunity are worth your money and time.
Once, my friend Joe left his job for an MLM (multilevel
marketing) program (I’ve to keep the name confidential). At that moment, I was shocked!
How someone could quit his well-paid job for something he’s
never tried before and something that has no guarantee of a constant income stream.
But within a year or two, Joe made good money through the
program, though he also did some home-based side job too. But MLM is now his
major income source.
Recently, I heard of Vasayo, another MLM, which reminded me
of Joe. Also, I am now tempted to try it out.
Like me, many of you might also be willing to try Vasayo. So
I did some research and came up with this detailed review.
Is Vasayo worth your investment?
Let’s read on with me.
First, what is Vasayo?
We can pay any price to live healthily. Well, health is
wealth! This makes MLMs dealing with health products thrive. Vasayo is one such
fastest emerging MLM company selling nutritional supplements.
From the company’s website and other resources, I came to
know that Dallin Larsen and Karree Larsen founded Vasayo in 2014. The company
has headquarters in Utah, USA and Hong Kong. Both seem to have significant
experience with the MLM industry.
Frankly, their previous MLM was a failure, but this one
seems genuine to me. After all, success starts with failures.
Coming to the point, Vasayo’s mission statement says that
they offer superior quality products to health-conscious consumers who demand
key ingredients. In fact, they earned a B
rating from the BBB (Better Business Bureau) as well.
The Vasayo offers mostly dietary supplements, including:
CBD One: Organic compliant CBD oil
V-Tox: A mix of fulvic acid and cleansing herbs
Eternal: An age-defying antioxidant supplement
Core Complete: Daily multivitamin and
Renew: Spray for joint health
Neuro: Cognitive enhancement caps
V-Slim: Weight management supplement
V3: Energy-boosting and mood supplement
MicroLife Sleep: A supplement for sleep
With every product, you will get a downloadable PDF file that
lists the ingredients used to make it.
One thing that makes Vasayo products unique is the lipsomes
content. Liposomes are used for specific
oral delivery of some nutritional and dietary supplements. It increases the bioavailability
and absorption of these supplements, making these products even more effective.
If people get promised results, Vasayo would become one of
the MLM companies, genuinely offering unique products that are worth their

You can earn bonuses for new recruits, sales, and
leadership. There is also an executive check match of 2.5% available for you if
you are lucky. The introduction bonuses range from 10-20%.
A few things about Vasayo: Did you know these?
Here are a few important things you should know before
deciding upon Vasayo:
Vasayo’s products are legitimate
Vasayo’s products are backed up by legitimate science. The
liposomal delivery method is another positive point. Studies demonstrate the
ingredients Vasayo uses provide health benefits.
Dallin and Karree Larsen also founded another MLM, MonaVie,
which was linked to false advertising, bankruptcy, and copyright infringement.
Could you trust such founders with a bad reputation?
No income disclosure statement
There is no official Income Disclosure Statement on the
But we want to know what their brand partners are receiving
in commission. Don’t you? I do!
Commission rates are low
The commission rate is capped at 20%, which is very low
compared to other MLMs. It clearly suggests you won’t be making so much money.
No exclusive products
Vasayo doesn’t license its products exclusively. Second, liposomal
delivery technology is not patented. This means you can get products from other
brands at a reduced price, which is another challenge for brand partners.
Vasayo: Pros and Cons
Sells legitimate products that claim to improve the
quality of life.
Apart from moneymaking opportunities, you can
earn lifestyle trips, team commissions, and multiple business centers.
It is a part of the huge and ever-growing
industry: health and wellness.
Vasayo products are very expensive.
The earning potential is less compared to many top
The supplements don’t appear to have any
supporting clinical evidence.
Verdict – Is
Vasayo Legit or Scam?
Vasayo is legit, and the company sells science-backed
products. But as with the majority of MLMs, you must recruit many people to
make money. It involves a lot of direct recruiting and product selling. No
income disclosure statement means you can’t have any idea about how much you
But the company claims that they offer unique products with many
health benefits. They also provide customer support and a money-back guarantee.
So I can’t call Vasayo a scam or a legit long-term earning
But I can say it is like other MLM companies. That means if
you successfully market and sell their products, you can grow and earn more income.
The company’s product line is solid, but health claims are
not backed by clinical evidence. Moreover, as with most businesses, you gain
what you invest in.
Can it really help turn you into a property-investing
back, I always dreamed of becoming some sort of property mogul. It seemed too
good to be true. My property portfolio was gonna be huge, and I would just
chill by my pool and count that sweet passive income.
you’ve probably guessed by now—becoming that sort of property mogul isn’t as
easy as I’d first thought. Go figure. But it was still the dream.
was way before I started making a real dent with my own Local Lead Generation
gig. More on that later.
only real experience I’d had with anything close to this sort of biz was when I
used to let buddies come and stay on the couch in my college apartment. It had
a pretty dope location (close to all the bars and clubs), so I’d let them stay
in exchange for pizza. Once, a classmate even wrote my term paper because I let
him use the pad to impress some girl for the night. Haha!
was way before AirBnB or anything like that. I know right—I was truly a
let’s just say I didn’t really understand the first thing about property
investment, property management…. property anything. But I still had my
I’d been slowly going insane in my cubical-slave job. But at least I was
building up a nice little deposit for a buy-to-let on the side.
guy I knew called Colin (another cubicle-slave like me) had already leveraged
himself into a handful of properties. Banks were lending to almost anyone back
then. He was planning on “retiring” soon. You can probably guess how
jealous I was.
But I was nearly there. I’d already started looking out for my first investment
was that sound?
yeah… that was the Global Economic Crash.
was a bloodbath. Let’s just keep this kid-friendly and say Colin added a couple
of decades to his intended retirement age. Ouch.
I shelved my plans for a bit. Got back to being a wage-slave at my desk again.
At least I still had a job, right?
the years ticked by—I still had that dream.
Slowly, banks started lending again. I still had my deposit. It had even grown
I decided it was time to jump in and finally get that investment property. It
was clearly going to be the first of many, right? Well…
see, banks had tightened up their lending rules. That meant I couldn’t afford
15 times my income on a pad. More like 3 or 4 times. This restricted what I
could get massively.
I remembered this old bit of wisdom I’d picked up somewhere:
the worst property in the best area.”
I decided to be spontaneous. I went for it. My first investment property!!
great… But… I don’t think I’d done enough research.
Slowly, I started to realize that maybe I’d bought the worst property in the
worst area. Oops.
was even struggling to fill it with tenants. This was going to be a problem. In
the end, I had to accept defeat and take a tenant that’d just about cover what
I was paying.
was supposed to be the first of many. I was gonna take the profit from this
place and leverage it into an empire. But the property was barely paying for
when I phoned my uncle. He’d already made a nice wedge from the property
market. His advice—sit back and let the property go up in value. Sound
advice—except he lived in SoCal. It’s easy there.
needed better advice.
remembered hearing about this guy Phil Pustejovsky a while back. I didn’t know
much about him, but I knew he ran this business called Freedom Mentor.
did a bit of research and decided I had to try something. I couldn’t stay at
this desk job forever. So I decided to give it a try.
first, it was hard finding the right info about Freedom Mentor. I was searching
for “freedom mentor reviews” and all sorts of crap was coming up.
Things are a bit easier now, but I decided to write down my experience with
Phil’s program in this Freedom Mentor review to help others who were in the
same position as me.
What is Freedom Mentor?
Mentor is aimed at people just like me and you. Guys who want to get into
property investment but still have a lot to learn. The great part is you don’t
have to stump up a ton of cash to get started.
a free book and course to take to get you initiated. There’s tons of good stuff
in both these freebies. There’s a lot of info that seems common sense but I
just hadn’t thought of. More on that in a couple of minutes.
the real core of Freedom Mentor is the Freedom Mentor Apprentice Program.
That’s where you get real one-on-one tuition and personal advice from Phil
himself. Great, right? Sort of…
looked great to me, but I was also a bit suspicious. There were loads of those
too-good-to-be-true testimonials on the site. Plus this slightly worrying
disclaimer about the testimonials that implied they might have been completely
I don’t know why guys like this try the hard sell so much. They must have
realized it puts as many people off as it convinces. Right?
I wasn’t put off—because I knew the info I’d learned in the free book and
course seemed legit. So I applied to be an “apprentice”.
did it go? Keep reading to find out.
first, you’ve probably got one big question…
Is Freedom Mentor a scam?
remember the first thing I’d search for when I saw a new online product like
this was “scam”. So I jammed “freedom mentor scam” into
Google. Especially when I saw those testimonials. You’ve probably done the
good news is that Freedom Mentor is NOT a scam. Phil Pustejovsky is legit as
not a scam. But it is expensive. We’ll get onto that in a minute.
extra info you get in the Freedom Mentor Apprentice Program is even more legit
than the stuff in the free book.
the best bit is… wait a minute. This needs its own sub-heading.
What’s the best part about Freedom Mentor?
best part about Freedom Mentor is Phil himself. It’s having an actual mentor.
And one who really knows what he’s talking about.
info and course material is great, but let’s face it—you’re not here for
that. You can find plenty of good info out there, but having someone on call to
actually answer your questions is what really helped me. It could help
Phil around to answer my call or email, I quickly learned I’d been doing it all
wrong. Best of all, I learned what to do right.
it isn’t all roses and ice-cream. I’ve got a big issue with the Freedom Mentor
program that I’m gonna lay out for you…
What’s the worst thing about Freedom Mentor?
gonna say this as softly as possible. The worst thing about Freedom Mentor?
They take 50% of your profits!
also a $3,000 up-front fee.
made me want to walk right out the door. STAT.
after thinking about it a bit longer, I thought I’d give it a shot. Just as a
one-time deal. Phil better be worth it.
Did Freedom Mentor work for me?
actually had some pretty good info about how to find cheap properties in my
area: motivated sellers.
are actually loads of obvious clues about how to find motivated sellers and how
they’ll often be willing to accept way under market price for a quick sale.
also hooked me up with some super-legit lenders who had a bit more leeway than
the big banks. That meant I got a good deal on a buy-to-let mortgage.
is where I started really learning how I’d made mistakes with my first
property. Actually, I learned a few things that I could use to turn that place
around, too. And I was keeping all the profits there.
gave the new place a quick lick of paint and advertised an open house for
potential tenants. This was such a good idea, I don’t know why I hadn’t thought
of it before.
are the keys to making your open house a success? Free food and alcohol!
so you’re not trying to get people drunk so they rent your place. It
just helps set the ambience. Honest.
you’ve got a few different people interested in your place, it does something
crazy to them. They don’t wanna miss out. Even if they never really liked the
property in the first place. FOMO in action.
it’s a two-way street. It doesn’t just get people more keen to put a (higher)
offer in. It let’s you vet your tenants as well.
tenants is really important. Picking the right people to live in your property
makes them more likely to look after the place, and less likely to cook meth in
I’m not saying you have to do a full background check—but at least check
they’ve got jobs.
my old place? The first crap-heap I called an investment property? The stuff I
learned with Phil even helped there as well. Now I’ve got better tenants and
it’s even making me a bit more money each month. I’m on my fifth investment
property now, and I’m looking to get more soon.
yeah, I even started getting “back” into AirBnB lets. I know, it’s
almost like my adult life had come full circle. Only this time I wasn’t getting
paid in pizza and college papers. I was getting real cash.
just got one of my properties on AirBnB and the other sites like that. I like
the guaranteed income that long-term tenants give you. Only the upside to
AirBnB lets is great. I’m looking to get more.
place is out by the lake so it’s the sort of pad people like that are looking
for. I’m not sure how well an AirBnB in the middle of a housing project would
great thing about this place is that you make a similar amount of money with
roughly 50% occupancy. That means it’s free for you to use the rest of the
year, yet you’ll still make as much as if you had people living there
downside? You’ve got a bit more work to do in-between. Cleaning, key handling
etc. There are people that’ll do this for you, but they’ll take a cut. It’s not
completely passive income. And oh yeah—it’s a bit harder to get a mortgage
for a buy-to-let like this. If you tell the bank the whole story, that is.
What else do you get in Freedom Mentor?
main value is clearly in the mentoring (hand-holding) from Phil. You get 3 live
coaching calls and 2 conference calls a week.
actually thought this was a bit harsh. Come on Phil! I’m giving you three grand
and HALF the profits on my property yet I can only phone you a couple of times
also loads of other material including a lender database and all sorts of other
useful info. Most of this was good, but some of it can be found elsewhere. Just
letting you guys know.
puts on a few live events each year. I made it to one, and had a good time. But
is this worth $3k? I’m not sure.
Oh yeah… There’s one more thing
Mentor” is NOT the same as “Your Freedom Mentor”. This almost
tripped me up a few times. That’s some other IM rags-to-riches product.
Confused? I know I was. And it seems like that other thing “Your
Freedom Mentor” actually might be a scam. Oops!
did Freedom Mentor really work? Yes. Is it really worth it? Maybe.
should definitely check out the free stuff. There’s tons of good info in there.
I was probably a bit naive in the beginning to think property investment would
be easy. It wasn’t, but I got there in the end.
a lot of the info Phil gives out CAN be found elsewhere. Sometimes for free.
You just have to know where to look. I only kept that one property with Phil,
there’s no way I was going to give him 50% of the profits on the next few
places. So I “left” the system.
still ask myself whether it was worth it. He’s still getting half the profits
from one of my properties. But the thing it—he really helped. Not just his
info, but simply having a mentor to bounce ideas off.
yeah, he’s still getting a nice chunk of passive income. But I learned some
stuff that helped me expand my property “empire”. Hey, can I call it
that yet? Come on, that was the dream!
actually think that right now I would NOT recommend Freedom Mentor. But I
change my mind on this on a day to day basis. After all, I probably wouldn’t
have the property portfolio I’ve got now if it wasn’t for Phil and his Freedom
Mentor program. But this was at a time when I just needed someone to hold my
hand. Maybe you aren’t at that stage. Maybe I should have just asked my uncle.
also found that while the info was great, there are some other places you can
find similar stuff. But you definitely need to check out all his free stuff,
because there’s a lot of gold in there. And it’s free.
a property investor is great—but it’s an expensive gig to get into. That puts
a lot off people off. I get that. Property is a big deal after all. But imagine
if there was a way to own DIGITAL property, and you could get involved at a
fraction of the price? There is, and it’s called Local Lead Generation.
was stoked when I collected my first monthly rental income on my own slice of
digital real estate. That’s why I’ve been helping spread the word about the
number one online business idea today. Click here to check it out.
if I’d have found something like Local Lead Generation sooner, I wouldn’t have
had to give so much money to Phil.
Don’t quit your day job just YET!…. Ok now you can.
I first told my buddies I was quitting my “real” job because I’d
started making actual money online (thanks mostly to my own Local Lead
Generation hustle)—they thought I was crazy. Really crazy. Almost as
crazy as that time I got thrown out into the street butt-naked (long story).
real reason they were ribbing me was because they were jealous. That’s just
something you’ve gotta get used to if you want to be successful. But then my
bro Tom piped up in the corner—“Is that like that Wealthy Affiliate
was like wait, what? I had to do a double take.
You’ve heard of Wealthy Affiliate?
guys had only just started using smart phones so I was shocked. My boy Rick
doesn’t even know what Uber is. Yet here was Tom name-dropping an IM product.
the thing with Wealthy Affiliate. Almost everyone has heard of it. If
Tom has, you probably have too. But is it actually any good?
decided I need to take a closer look. What is wealthy affiliate? I’m gonna tell
you everything you need to know in this Wealthy Affiliate Review.
Wealthy Affiliate review
I know I said everyone has heard of Wealthy Affiliate. They haven’t, obviously.
But it’s still pretty well-known in internet marketing circles. Especially if
even Tom has heard of it.
that’s the thing. He’d only heard of it. He didn’t really know
you typed “wealthy affiliate review” into Google to get to this
page—you obviously want to know more. So let’s get started.
What is Wealthy Affiliate?
start with the claims. What does Wealthy Affiliate think it is?
internet marketing guys tend to oversell a bit. It’s part of their business.
Aim for the stars and be happy when you only reach the moon, right?
yeah… but. People are getting tired of these kind of sales pitches.
Everyone’s seen them before. That’s why I’m gonna cut through the bull with
this review to find out if Wealthy Affiliate works for real people. Real
people like Tom. And real people like you.
Platform Designed For Affiliate Marketers Of All Levels.” Great. That
doesn’t tell us much does it?
I jumped in and signed up to Wealthy Affiliate to see if it really works.
I’ve already made money online—so I’ve got a bit of a head start. But what
about guys like Tom? I decided to try and leave my knowledge at the door and
see if Wealthy Affiliate works for normal people. Because that’s what they
claim. They say it’s great for newbies to the IM game. They say you can build
profitable websites in minutes and start making real money in days. But can
you, can you really?
answer that and all your other questions in this review.
Is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?
let’s deal with the elephant in the affiliate room first. There are tons of scams
out there, especially in this business. I even fell for a couple when I was
just starting out. I know! Don’t laugh. We all had to start somewhere.
probably one of your first questions when you first hear about making money
with Wealthy Affiliate. is Wealthy Affiliate a scam?
I’ve got a definitive answer for you…
Affiliate is not a scam. It’s as legit as they come in this game.
can make money with it. But it isn’t going to be easy.
I see half you guys closing your browser right about now. You WANTED an easy
ride. This isn’t for you. CYA!
now we’ve got rid of those lazy guys—we can get down to business. Wealthy
Affiliate isn’t a scam, but it isn’t a get-rich-quick-scheme either. You gotta
put the work in if you want to make real money online these days. Are you ready
for it? Are you REALLY ready for it?
good news is that Wealthy Affiliate can make things a LOT easier for IM
newbies. There’s a ton of tools, info and coaching. All of it is designed to make
things easier for you guys.
the thing with Wealthy Affiliate. While they SAY they’re for everyone—they’re
not. A Platform For Marketers At All Levels… Yeah Yeah. OK. They’re just
trying to spread their net as far as possible.
reality is—if you know a lot about affiliate marketing already and have
already built a load of successful sites, then this site is NOT for you. But if
you’re just starting out and need someone to hold your hand along the way…
then Wealthy Affiliate does really work.
How much can you make with Wealthy Affiliate?
jump straight into the nitty gritty. You wanna hear about the moolah. Don’t we
4 months I was pulling in $1,000 a month. Great! Right? Sort of…
took a lot of work to get there. I didn’t see anything for the first month. In
fact, I was starting to think about giving up. But it’s only because I know how
things go in this game that I kept persevering. Maybe if you’re really new to
IM you might not stick at it like I did.
it doesn’t come easy. But we lost all those guys wanting a free ride at the
door, right? You knew it wasn’t going to be easy. But you’re still here.
Wealthy Affiliate really does have a ton of info. Almost TOO much.
you can never have too much info. That’s why you need to check out Wealthy
Affiliate University. There’s so much training info you won’t know where to
start. Especially if you’re new. Even I was a little daunted.
can’t really complain about too much info, can you? Start absorbing it and
Wealthy Affiliate University will give you a pretty comprehensive education in
without the frat parties. Bummer.
So is it really just for IM newbies?
think that’s who stands to gain the most. But even I picked up a couple of tips
along the way.
can’t say no to some free info, can you?
up a second.
I just say FREE?!
yeah, I forgot to mention…
can get started at Wealthy Affiliate for NOTHING. Zip. Nada.
less than the price of a… well, anything.
there’s a membership plan with loads more of the good stuff for $49 a month.
Even that’s not much compared to some guys’ courses. But if you’re still living
in a cardboard box or something—you can start learning without paying a
Wealthy Affiliate’s free membership, you’ll get all this good stuff:
· 2 Websites
(enough to get you started).
· Your first
10 lessons. Woo!
· 7 Days of
live 1-on-1 coaching (this was really cool)
· And more,
Wealthy Affiliate is great for all those cheapskates who want to start without
hear this from me: you might need to stump up some change if you really wanna
benefit from Wealthy Affiliate.
first 7 days are great, but that’s not enough if you’re still learning the
affiliate game. And there’s actually loads more useful info in the training
lessons AFTER the first free ones. You’ll also be able to make up to 50
websites instead of just two.
do get 50 searches on the keyword tool with the free plan—but I didn’t really
think this was enough. The $49 a month deal gives you unlimited. It helped me
really start drilling down on some better keywords and niches.
also get loads more support. I actually didn’t find that I needed much, but
maybe that’s because I had a harder time leaving my IM knowledge at the door
than I thought I would. I can’t help having a sponge for a brain.
I thought some of this stuff could really help those who are ACTUALLY new to
internet marketing. And after all, what’s $49 a month in the grand scheme of
I had to throw up about 10 or so sites with Wealthy Affiliate before a couple
of them took off. So if I’d have stuck to the free plan, it might never have
and did I mention that you’ll get double the payouts from the paid membership
affiliate plan? I know right!
Are there any drawbacks to Wealthy Affiliate?
not all good. Wealthy Affiliate is a great knowledgebase with tons of info. I
already tried not to complain about there being TOO much info, but I can’t help
it. It’s quite daunting when you get started.
of Wealthy Affiliate’s biggest pros is the community. But it’s a bit… Let’s
just say unmoderated. They could do with some help there. If you don’t like
sifting through a fair bit of crap to get to the good stuff—it might not be
for you. But there IS plenty of good stuff.
also found it a bit hard to navigate the site, but this is probably down to
personal preference. In other words, I’m picky.
But wait. What about Tom?
Remember our boy Tom? After all—he’d actually HEARD of Wealthy Affiliate.
Don’t ask me how, because he barely even knows how to check his email. I think
one of his roommates was dabbling in a bit of IM to try and pay for weed.
Living the dream, I know.
then I realized. Tom knowing next to nothing about this stuff was actually
huge. That meant we could actually use him as our own little guinea pig for
this review. Instead of affiliate-marketing-pro-expert me checking this out
(and modest)—I could see if it really works for the guys it’s really
aimed at. Guys like Tom.
I called Tom up and reminded him about Wealthy Affiliate. I nearly spat my
coffee out when THIS TIME Tom didn’t have a clue what I was talking about. Come
on, TOM! I’ve been repping you for weeks because you knew what Wealthy
Affiliate was. Go figure.
yeah, right…. Wealthy Affiliate”.
a quick recap got him up to speed. He still didn’t really know what IM was. I
think he thought it was something you get at the hospital.
anyway, all this is good stuff. It made Tom a perfect guinea pig
I cracked the whip and told him I’d double anything he made in a couple of
months. I knew Tom wasn’t that motivated, and I knew he needed to be to make
Wealthy Affiliate a success. So I told him I’d cover his shifts at the bar as
well. He only did 3 a week. Easy. All this for a stupid review? I know right.
You can thank me later.
now Tom was on board. He got cracking. I called him up every couple of days to
check how things were going.
the first couple of weeks… things were going slowly. It took him a while to
get to grips with the basics, but that’s cool. I think you’ll already be
starting from a much better position than Tom did.
he saw how much some other people in Wealthy Affiliate were making, he got a
bit more into it.
He had a bit of a scattergun approach to picking niches, including some stuff
he didn’t have a clue about. But he actually really enjoyed the one-on-one
coaching sessions and live help. All the stuff I thought would be useful for
had a bit of a wobble a few weeks in. He still hadn’t made any money. I was
actually a bit busy with my own projects (and at the bar… yeah), so I wasn’t
really around to give him a kick up the backside.
where the one-on-one coaching (I call it hand-holding) really came into its
own. Some OTHER guy gave Tom a kick up the ass. YES!
he kept at it a bit longer.
actually one of the best things about Wealth Affiliate—the community. There
are plenty of cool guys on it who actually enjoy helping people. They all help
a few days later, I got a call. It was Tom.
was super stoked. Tom got his first sale. It was $30.
doesn’t sound much, but what it meant to Tom was worth far more than the money.
It gave him the energy to carry on.
how did Tom do? He absolutely killed it. After that first sale, things went
from strength to strength.
was starting to dream about taking his laptop (the new one he just paid for) to
the beach somewhere. I think he said something about Maui. His mind was blown
that he could just chill at home and listen to music while making money on the
Tom can do it—you can too.
it’s not gonna be easy.
nearly gave up in the first few weeks. Even I struggled at the start too.
after that, he was hungry for all the IM ideas he could find. Dude was
devouring all the info I could throw at him. He even started paying attention
to this other really cool gig I had going—my own Local Lead Generation
business. That’s where you can actually make some real money. Local Lead
Generation is great, you need to check it out if you’re serious about being
successful in this game.
Affiliate isn’t a scam. But it isn’t a get rich quick scheme either. You gotta
put the work in. But you CAN make money with. And it’s great for those starting
with little or no internet marketing knowledge.
know I’ll recommend Wealthy Affiliate to the rest of my friends. Tom’s actual
brother is trying it now too.
