Introduction


Is Affilorama free? In short, no but the 60 trial is so cheap that it might as well be free. This review will help you decide if this program is right for you.

Currently the world is moving at a really fast pace. There are internet startups popping up all the time and a lot of them are making huge money.

The problem is that so many of them are making their money by scamming people or misleading people.

To learn how to make money online can be a huge task especially if you don’t have any experience. Is it possible? Yes it absolutely is but you will need the right training. There just so happens to be a lot of people out there who really really want to make a living online.

This is why there are so many websites out there claiming to be able to help people make a living online. Affilorama just so happens to be one of those. But the question I’m going to try to answer for you today is about it’s legitimacy and value.

To get a membership at Affilorama you only have to pay $1, that sounds pretty good. You’re  probably wondering if that cheap of a membership has enough value in it to help launch a successful online career. I’m going to bet that it doesn’t but let’s take a more in-depth look to find out for sure.

So to be clear on what Affilorama claims to teach, it’s affiliate marketing. More specifically they boast that they will teach you how to set up a website that makes money through affiliate marketing much like it’s main competitor Wealthy Affiliate.

Who It’s For


There are aspects of Affilorama that would help some veterans of affiliate marketing if they just needed a little refresh in their career but mostly I would say that it’s geared more for beginners. The training is quite simple and really well explained in order to be easily understood by marketing newbie’s.

If you are looking to start a niche website to make money through affiliate sales then this would be an ok option for you. They even have cookie cutter websites that are already set up for you to buy and get started. This would be a really fast way for you to get your foot into the door of affiliate marketing.

The problem with that is if you don’t go through the entire process of learning how to build it yourself then you will miss out on a lot of good information and you won’t know a lot of the basics for building a foundation to a website.

Training & Tools


toolsThe initial $1 trial period training will cover some important topics and yes, it s cheap and you at least 20 training videos for that price. That is a very good deal.

This will cover the basics of website building which is a decent training session and you will come out of it with a pretty good idea how to build a website but in my opinion it didn’t go into enough detail.

It will also give you some pretty good marketing ideas that you can apply to your website throughout the life of your website. They are good ideas but again, they are pretty basic and I would have liked to have been givin more details.

They do a brief training session on SEO and PPC. These of course are very important facets of running an affiliate sales website and you need to be well versed in them in order to succeed.

These topics were covered in pretty good detail I thought, better than some of the other training. I have to say that I was impressed with this part of the training.

They also provide you with a keyword checker which is really nice especially if you’re new at this. It can be a nice way to know how your rankings are doing without having to pay extra.

There are some pretty good writing tools that can give you a good head start on writing articles and reviews. The writing tools are very helpful and I learned a little bit from it myself.

forumOne of my favorite tools that comes with the Affilorama membership is the forum.

This is actually quite an active forum with responses on a daily basis. I’m sure this would come in handy when you find yourself stuck on something.

The forum really does give the website a sense of community and I really think thats a valuable part of this membership.

Price


learn to make money with affiliate marketingSo the pricing is a little confusing because there are many different programs that you can choose from. It’s really difficult to decide what program to choose especially given the huge difference in price.

Some people tend to go for the most expensive option because they feel it will give them the best chance for success, others go for the cheaper option to play it safe.

60 day trial———————-$1

Full Membership—————$67/month

Affiloblueprint——————$197 or $597 with a full year membership

Affilojetpack——————–$497

Affilotheme———————$97

So like I said, there are a lot of different options and it could be really difficult to choose which one is best for you. I’ll try to show what you get for each package.

Membership

This is a little more expensive than most online training courses but it’s not crazy expensive. With the basic membership you will have access to their monthly training magazine which provides you with up to date training resources and it is very professional and relatively valuable.

You also get 15 domains included and some pretty good software tools. They also have a live affiliate blog bootcamp which is quite good training.

As I said earlier, you get access to at least 20 videos but this number is always changing.

Affiloblueprint

This is a package that includes all the same stuff you get in the full membership plus some additional stuff as well.

The additional stuff is mainly the blueprint. What this is exactly is a step by step guide to affiliate marketing. It will give you more details and be a little more helpful than the regular member ship if you’re a beginner.

It is a really good product so at least you’re getting something good, I just don’t think it’s worth the extra money because that really is a lot of money.

Affilojetpack

This is a massive up-sell. This is in my poinion very very pricey, I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of people who have purchased this package have felt ripped off.

This is essentially a package that provides you with 5 different website templates and so you would be able to have 5 separate websites that all look different.

Sure it would be nice to have 5 websites set up so quickly but you could do that for much cheaper elsewhere. So the websites you buy do have articles, pictures and videos already on them so it’s all ready to go.

But it seems weird to me because when you buy this package, you will have the same websites as everybody else who buys it. I can’t imagine that Google would see these as valuable websites since they aren’t unique in any way at all.

Affilotheme

This in my opinion is a pretty good option. You get a really nice wordpress theme and it can be customized to look however you want. I would say that this is the best option here even though it’s a little pricey.

At least your getting a website that looks good and you can make it into whatever you want. You don’t necessarily need to buy this to be successful but it will save you some time and guarantee a nice looking website.

This one depends on how much time and effort you want to put into the appearance of your website. Some people would enjoy doing that part on their own. If you don’t enjoy that, then this would be a good option.

Final Opinion


This product is not free however the trial is so cheap that it might as well be free. It is absolutely not a scam and it is a legitimate program that can help people start an online business.

The owner Mark Ling is a respectable guy in the industry and he is putting out a trustworthy product.

I think my biggest issue with this program is the cost. Sure the 60 day trial period is cheap and that is a huge benefit, but after that period the cost is high and the up-sells are enormous.

I think it’s very difficult for beginners to decide which program to select and that another downfall.

So the training is pretty good but not the best in the industry. I ranked it 70 out of 100 and the major reasons it lost points are the high up-sells and the lack of in-depth training.

Whenever I review a product that teaches you how to make a living online I always like to compare it to my number 1 ranked program, Wealthy Affiliate. Here’s a table showing you some of the differences between these 2 programs.

So for me it’s a no brainer but you should read my full Wealthy Affiliate review and decide for yourself which is the better program for you.

Thanks very much for reading my review today. I hope you enjoyed it and I’d love to hear from you. If you have any questions, comments or feedback please use the box below to share them with me. I always reply.

Cheers,
