Affiliate Marketing Course 2018- 16 Weeks Of Hands-On Training
Hey its Marcus here, today what we are going to be doing is go over what to look for in an affiliate marketing course. What do we go for? How do we get started? How do you know if something is good? How do you know if something is actually going to help you? How do you know if something is not going to help you?
We’re going to go over 14 things you can go through to figure out if it’s going to work for you. We want to really understand like “should I get a course? Should I try to learn it free? Should I go for a boot camp? Should I go for one of Marcus product or should I go for something else? What should I do if I try to learn this affiliate marketing business?
If that’s you and you’re sitting there right now and wondering about what to do, this training is for you. The idea is to get you some results. The idea is to understand what works.
That’s one of the things you want to look for in an affiliate marketing course. You’re like, “hey are people actually getting results? Does this stuff work? Does it stand the test of time?”.
What I’m going to do right now is go through the 14 things you should look for when going for any affiliate marketing course.
Because, again, whatever you do, find something that works for you. If my stuff doesn’t work with you, if you look at my training and you’re like “Marcus training is not cool”. That’s fine, that’s cool. Go find someone else. But if you’ve been watching my video, if you learn a lot from them, I’ll like to invite you to look at these steps and then my course might be something that gets you over the edge, gets you to the next level because of the support that we provide.
So what we’re going to do here is we’re going to show you what to look for in an affiliate marketing course. What do we look for? How do we focus? In my couple of videos ago, we went through one of the major scam types that are going on. How do you know something is not going to live up to the promises? How do you know something is not going to work for you in the long run?
What I’ve done is that I put together these 14 steps so that you can take a look and say, “well, is this right for me? As you guys know: a lot of my stuffs, we don’t have refund policies. The reason is because I want you to stick with it. And we put a lot of efforts into you. So what I want to do is to line this up for you and show you what is going on. Let get started:
14 Things You Should Look For When Going For Any Affiliate Marketing Course
- Has the creator been around a while or is he a one-hit wonder?
The first thing you want to look for in an affiliate marketing course is, ‘has the creator of the course or the person selling the course been around a while or are they a one-hit wonder?”. There is two parts to this:
There are a lot of people you’re going to see: young kids all over YouTube teaching how to make money and some of their stuffs are really good. But you’ve got to look at it and say, “Has this person been around a while or they just get lucky?
Because, I’ve got to tell you, in internet marketing a lot of time stuffs happens by luck. I know it sounds like a taboo, but a lot of time: someone would get lucky. They’ll get the right product at the right time; they’ll get the right traffic method that just takes off and it works.
Like the people out there doing Instagram. Do they have something that has been proven? Can they do this in multiple niches or is it just something that they got lucky with. So we’ve got to look at that and say, “Has the person been around a while or are they just doing wonder?” For example, Shopify. Did they just get lucky with one thing on Shopify or are they someone who is got multiple successes in multiple different businesses. Is it something that’s going to work?
You guys know me; I’ve been around for almost two decades doing this online. I’ve been in niches, from Bible verses to niche on how to make money, to smiley faces. So there are lots of niches there. You have to ask yourself, “Has this person been around a while?”. I guarantee that if you go through these steps, you’re going to find someone who is going to work with you and you’re going to find something that would work for you.
- Is the system duplicable and sustainable?
Now we saw recently in a lot of the pyramid type things that have been going around. We saw that these are things that are not really duplicable and sustainable. They are not duplicable because if everyone is selling the same product, then at the end of the day it’s going top end.
Only so many people can sell the same product to the same group of people until it ends up. Now you notice that a lot of the stuff that I teach is based on affiliate marketing which basically means that you can promote anything you want. The strategy works in every niche if you focus and if the numbers match.
And again, the sky is the limit: you can promote anything based on what you are selling and the traffic method. So what happens is you’re not going to get something that times out. The most important thing is that I want you to get result based on something that works for everyone. So, we want to make sure that it’s duplicable and sustainable and something that you can do over and over.
- Does the training rely on one volatile traffic method or offer?
This is very important because a lot of people are going to teach you a lot of things and it would rely on one thing. Like, “hey this is what you’ll do but it only works on Instagram”. That’s good, but is there another way? Because, again, not everyone can promote the same thing on Instagram and not all traffic methods are going to work.
Like, if I came to you and I sold you my course solely on the fact that I did a lot of stuff with my space, you’ll be looking at me and be like, “this guy is a wash up because my space is not around anymore”. So you’ve got to say, “Is this volatile?” But the strategies that I teach works in every niche if you look at it objectively. At the end of the article, we’re going to have a Q&A section where we are going to talk to you about some of the course you can get involved in, some of the things that I do and some of the things you can do to help yourself learn this business.
So, does the training rely on one volatile traffic method or offer? Is it just offer centric or traffic centric? If so, you might want something a little more midi. Now I’m not saying don’t go learn this tactics. Because this tactics are great, they are going to teach you things in business but what I’m also saying is get a foundation. The simple site course, the simple site Bootcamp, and all this stuff that I teach is based on a foundation. You’re learning a foundation of how internet marketing works so that you can get in there and make it work.
- Are you learning tactics or business strategies?
Now, a lot of people are going to teach you tactics. Like, “okay, go on forums and post these things”. That’s good, they work. But, again at the end of the day, if you’re just learning tactics, you’re not going to be around. And if the tactics doesn’t work anymore, then you’re going to be off the road.
So what we want to do is to learn business strategies and get the foundation of how business works. The reason I’ve been in business for almost 20 years and so many other people have not is because of the fact that I learned a foundation of direct response marketing. I learned how to find people, how to find what they want, how to talk to them and how to give them things that make me money.
- Has the creator been around a while?
You’re going to notice that a lot of people, they get their first taste of success. They make maybe 50 grand to 100 grand and they go out to teach. Why? Because they make the 50 grand, but didn’t learn the business principle, therefore they really can’t go out there and duplicate it. So they try to sell a course on how it works rather than actually learning the business principles for themselves. So we’ve got to be really on guard for this and say, “has the creator been around a while?’. Has the creator of the internet marketing or affiliate marketing course been there for a while?. Have they been in different niches? Have they done the test of time or are they just like a one-hit wonder?
We’ve been around for almost 20 years. I know what’s going on. When things like Facebook takes over because the foundation that I’ve laid, the stuffs that I have learned work on everything. I just did a Facebook promotion last month. And we did the promotion and we did like $30,000 with barely any work. We did little videos and stuffs like that. And it works because the principles are the same. The way I build the simple site is the way I do Facebook. The way I do the simple site is the way I do Instagram- They are all based on Advertising.
And if you get that backbone of direct response marketing, then you’re going to be off to the races. Whether we’re doing old ads in Newspapers or whether we are doing virtual reality webinars, the tactics are the same. Because you are dealing with people. No matter what, Facebook is people.
That’s what you want, that’s who is going to buy your product, that’s who is going to fill out the forms, download the form and get you paid is people. So the number one rule of the game is learning how to talk to people online. Learning how to craft a message that is going to get them in there and really focus.
A lot of people will lose money when trying to market things if they don’t do it the right way. If you’re following on a tactic or you’re trying to do some kind of strategy, you’ve got to learn business. You’ve got to learn how to talk to these people, you’ve got to learn where they at and you’ve got to learn how to focus on what they want.
And if your course is not teaching you that, then you need to get that first. That’s why people fail in business because they don’t have that foundation, they don’t understand what’s going on. It doesn’t matter how good your product is (obviously we need good products), but that’s not the big thing. There are 5 star restaurants that struggle and there is a Mc Donald that doesn’t struggle and they don’t have 5 star foods. But it works, because they meet the needs of people. And again, marketing comes down to knowing what the people want. If you’re not focused on what the people want, nothing else matters.
- Is there support and guide when needed?
Trust me I’ve bought hundreds of thousands of dollars worth e-books, courses and trainings. Some of them, I’ve wasted money. I think my record was I wasted $10,000 on SEO type thing and it still did not work for me, wasn’t good, didn’t have the support and I wasted it. Why? Because I wanted to see if it works and it didn’t. I don’t want that to happen to you, I want you to focus.
So we’ve got to look at this. Is there someone to talk to? Is there someone you can learn from? Now, all of our course have support and guidance (obviously we have the phone number right here on all of our site.
If you go to affiliatemarketingdude.com, you’ll see that there is a live chat button. You can click it and talk to us directly. Right on live chat, you can see my wonderful support team online.
Again, make sure that you are focused. Have you gotten products and you haven’t had support from them? That does not work well because you’re not going to get the help and guidance you need when you need them.
Let’s be real about this: this is a business and it has a lot of variables. There’s is a lot of things going on, like I don’t know what traffic method you’re going to pick, I don’t know what your website is going to look like, I don’t know what’s going to happen. So you come to me and you’re like “Marcus, what do you think about my site?” And I’ll go in and give my expert idea. No support is a total deal breaker.
Just this week we started doing a whole lot of new stuff with phone calls. We’re here to help you and that’s the deal. No matter what you get from my course or someone else courses, make sure that it has the support and guidance that you need.
- Does the course teach you a solid starting point?
Now, this is extremely important. Most people struggle when it comes to this because they don’t have a solid starting point. Most people come to me and they are like “Marcus, I want to do Facebook, or affiliate marketing or whatsoever” And they have the idea of the tactics that they want to do but they don’t have a solid starting point.
Now one of the differences between my courses and other courses is we teach you the starting point. We actually go through and we make sure that you know how niche marketing works.
We make sure that you know how search marketing works, how Facebook and all these stuff works because you have to understand it. .If you’re not starting with a niche market, you’re starting the wrong way.
You have to start with a niche market. You might have ideas ( ideas are great), but the question is do you know where to start? You can have all the ideas in the world but getting started is where you need to understand. You’ve got to be laser focus; you’ve got to zero in on what is going to work. You’ve got to know where your people are coming from. You can come to me like, “Marcus, my niche is healthy” .
Healthy is not a niche, lose weight is not a niche; make money is not a niche. You’ve got to focus on exactly who you want to talk to. Because I tell you what: i can focus on a thousand people that I want to talk to that I know and you can focus on a million that you don’t know about and I’m going to do better with my thousand because I know what they want. So you’ve got to know where to start.
- Will you learn solid skills that transfers into other areas of businesses?
This is important. Are you going to learn solid skills that are going to transfer into other areas of business? You’re going to get skills that you can take with you. If I learn how to go through and build a landing page with an opt-in on it. That’s a skill I can now take and use.
When I first learn marketing, the reason it worked and I stood the test of time is because I learnt everything I could. I have this thing in my mind; I have this emotion type philosophy. When I go into something and I started to learn marketing, I got books on marketing. My wife said “print it out the entire internet”. I listen to talks, watched videos and I try to learn as much as I could. And that’s how I did it. And that’s the same thing that I want for you. And that’s what I’ve done in my courses.
I’ve really focused on taking out the junk. Are you learning tactics or are you learning marketing. For me, I would rather see you learn how to talk to people. I’d rather see you learn how to chat with people online and sell stuffs. I’d rather you learn how to write an article that’s going to lead people to affiliate offers. I’d rather you learn a skill that’s going to work.
I watched so many gurus; I didn’t know what questions to ask. I was so confused.
Hopefully this stuff is helping you because a buddy came to me and he’s like “Marcus, what I love about your stuff is you answer the questions that I would have asked”. So I come to you, I’m like, “what kind of theme should I have? And I go and I answer and I’m like, “here is what you need to be asking me”. I can stay here and answer your question all day, but some of your questions don’t need to be answered. You may be like, “Marcus, aren’t you suppose to answer everything? Yes and No!
If I answer something that’s going to lead you down the rabbit hole, I’m not going to answer it. What I try to do is I try to answer in a way that’s going to get you to come to the understanding without me telling you. Because if you come to the understanding of your own thought process, you’re going to have a much better experience and it’s going to mean much more to you. That’s why I teach the way I do. That’s why a lot of the stuff that I teach is very conceptual. Because if you get the conceptual stuff, nothing else matters.
Do you get the concept of how internet marketing works? Do you get the concept of people going to Google to search for information every minute? You can talk to them. You can get in front of them right now and make money right now if you want to.
That goes back to say this is a real business. I don’t know what you’re going to get. I don’t know what you’re going to make. I don’t even know if you’re going to follow the steps. But I do know that what I’ve learnt and what I’m going to impact to you in my videos, courses, and Youtube channel are the real world stuffs. You’re going to learn things that are going to go with you.
You’re going to learn things that will give you result if you work at them. So many people out there want to set up one page and make a million dollar. I don’t know if that’s going to happen. I’ve done that a couple of times and it was cool. Maybe there was some luck involved, maybe there was some good right timing involved.
Here is the deal: I’ve also done lots of little sites that have made me lots of money. Like the lottery site I put up, it made me money within 13 minutes and by the end of the day it made me $1600. The domain was registered by the night. I don’t even think the domain charge hit my account.
Why am I able to do this over and over again? Why am I able to go on Facebook and make money? Why am I able to do this on Instagram with 600 followers and make like $10,000- because I know people. I know people and I know marketing. Yu can learn about WordPress, you can learn about themes, you can learn about codes, you can learn about Google and all other stuffs but if you don’t know how to talk to people (which is marketing) then you won’t go far. Typing and talking, that’s what I do to make money.
- Are lots of people earning money with the ‘selected’ method?
By selected method, I mean the advertising method. If someone out there is promoting a Shopify course9 Now I don’t do Shopify , there is lots of other friends that I have that are doing Shopify), a lot of people getting good results with Shopify. Cool, maybe it’s viable. A lot of people getting results with affiliate marketing, yes they do. So, you’ve got to look at the method and say, is this something that works? Is this something I can sustain? At the end of the day, who is paying you? Lots of people sign up for courses because of the reason that, at the end of the day all you were doing is promoting the courses. So if you sign up a course that’s telling you to promote the course, that’s a scam.
It’s like years ago; my dad had this friend when he was starting out as a realtor and this friend use to run an ad in the newspaper. He had the store where he runs an ad on Newspaper and it says, “Make $500 a day running ads in newspapers”. And you send him$27 to get his course and he sends you back copy of the ads. That’s a scam. It does not pass any real value to anyone, it’s just junk. Now a lot of courses you look at are like that. It’s a big promotion scheme to get you to promote things and you’ve got to be careful of that. People might be getting result doing that, but at the end of the day, someone is going to be left with the short end of the stick.
- Do people get results?
Are people getting results? You saw people getting results all over my YouTube channel. You can see people getting results all over our pages. Now, unfortunately, in internet marketing, it’s like in weight loss when a lot of people don’t do the work, they just buy courses. That’s fine (maybe they’ll get to it later). But are people actually getting results if they do it. If I go to a personal trainer and I see that his whole group of people is still overweight and they have been going to him for a year, I’m probably not going to sign up with him because his people are not getting results. I’m going to go to the guy who is got all his trainees and they are totally great with 6 pack abs, that’s the kind of guy I’d want to go for. So you’ve got to go for someone who is actually getting the result.
- Does this system creator “promise” a certain income amount of Results?
This is a very important thing because a lot of people out there promise. That’s not the way it works and no one can promise you any income. If anyone says, “sign up for my product and you’re guaranteed this amount of income”, don’t believe him. No one is allowed to promise stuffs because we don’t know what you’re going to get. So don’t go for anyone that promises anything. Maybe it’s stepping on some people’s toes, but I want you to be armed against what’s out there. Because there are lot of junks out there. So you’ve got to focus on what you want. You’ve got to focus on things that work. You’ve got to focus on someone who is going to give you the straight real deal info of what it takes to do this business. And if you find someone like that, sign up with them. Whether it’s me or someone else. Just find someone who has something that makes sense. Find a mentor you can trust, find a mentor you can talk to, someone who’s got a support team who can help you get started.
- Are you learning from the “free” stuff…..Does it make sense
Have you gotten real value from the free content that I put out? This training is free content. You’re like, ‘wow, Marcus gave me value, no one sat down and talked to me about this stuffs but Marcus is actually doing it”. Or maybe you watched a video last week that has helped you. And that’s the deal: I want you to be absolutely certain that I’m your guy. Before I sell you anything, I want you to know that, “this is the guy I want to follow”. Our courses, the reason you get them is because of the structure. You can watch free videos and everything, but the structure of the way that I design my courses is in a very methodical way to make you go through and get the result.
- What are the hidden costs?
How many of you have bought something and you notice that it is an upsell? The reason why my stuff is a little bit more expensive than others is because we give you the whole thing. I’d rather tell you upfront that simple site Bootcamp is 16 weeks, we are going to give you a domain name, we’re going to give you a website, we’re going to walk you through a whole 16 weeks course hands-on, take you by the hand, build you toward everything and its $1277 one time. Is it not better than being like, “hey, for $100 you can get started right now? And by the way, if you want week 2, that’s a $100. If you want week 3, pay this and that”. So we’re upfront, that’s like 70 a week, and that’s nothing compared to the result you can get if you do it.
With my programs, there are two costs that you need to be aware of:
Cost of the course- we do have upsells sometimes for other product but that’s not compulsory. The two products that you need to look at. 1. After you order my stuff you need to have your own web hosting. Now I don’t know any web hosting company. We are an affiliate of a web hosting company that does great and we lead you through that.
The second one is an autoresponder which most people should have (It’s like $9 a month). So those are the hidden costs of all of my products. But a lot of people have a lot of hidden costs that will frustrate you and you’ve got to watch out for that. Here is the deal: you can go and watch my free videos and make money. How much better would it be if you go through the videos, get the course and get help from us?
- Can the company be reached? Live chat/phone/support site?
Can they be reached? Is there a support site? Like we have PCmoneymaking.com if you ever need support you go there. There is a live chat on every site that I own. We have phone supports (800-893-067). What I want you to do is to think about this and I want you to think about what you want.
What we want to do in our Bootcamp is to take you by the hand and walk you through everything. Here is the deal, we’re going to go through for the next 16 weeks and I’m going to take you through everything. So every single week, you’re going to hop on a live webinar. If you can’t make it live, don’t worry, it is recorded and we have a special live chat just for you.

Find Hot Amazon Affiliate Niches In Seconds: For Affiliate Marketing — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com.
Let’s talk about how to find hot Amazon affiliate niches.
I want you to go think about the last three things that happened in your house. This is because you’re going to have experience with these three things, and you’ll know a little bit about them, and you’ll know what you did to fix them.
You can actually make little websites about these things, and lead people to Amazon products, and you can make lots of money.
Now, let’s look at some examples of using affiliate marketing with common household problems.
We’re going to go to the Google Keyword Planner tool and search for the term “pool filter”.
You’ll notice that the competition says it’s slightly high, but the numbers are actually pretty low in comparison of what this niche sells. Pool filters can be thousands of dollars (the average is around $500), so there’s a lot of money in this market. And there are a lot of people getting a lot of traffic.
There are lots of people talking about pool filters on YouTube.
Here are videos with hundreds and thousands of views.
We can also see how much pool filters are selling for on Amazon.
As you can see, these pool filters on Amazon are pretty expensive ($1,500; $724; $607, and so on).
Because these are in the category of patio and lawn, you’ll currently get around 8% commission. That means if you get 8% on a $600 pool filter, you’ll make around $48 per sale. If you sell 2 of them a day, that’s $96 a day. That amount times 365 days a year (since your websites don’t take breaks), that’s around $35,000 a year. And that’s with one little site about one little item, which is pretty darn cool.
Now, let’s take a look at refrigerator problems. We can go to the Google Keyword Planner and type in “refrigerator won’t”. We see the suggestion for “refrigerator not cooling”.
Look at that: “refrigerator not cooling” has 5,400 searches a month with very low competition. If you were to pay for the traffic, it would be around 16 cents. With a little work, you could probably even get traffic for free.
Now let’s look and see if they sell refrigerators on Amazon.
Here are some refrigerators from Amazon. Some are around $180, and the more expensive ones are like $1,500 bucks.
Your commission on these will be pretty good.
There are also other affiliate networks that you can get these on, such as Best Buy, Sears, all different places that will pay you a huge commission.
You can also refer customers to CPA affiliate offers for “refrigerator repair”, “home repair”, different things like that. And as you can see, the sky is the limit to what you can do. You could literally just have a site that’s about “refrigerators not cooling”. You could even sell extended warranties for refrigerators, or things like that, and make a ton of money. It’s really easy to do.
And if we go to Google right now, and search for something like “refrigerator not cooling” in quotes, we can see what the competition is like.
We have “refrigerator not cooling” with only 305,000 competing. That’s not too bad.
And on the paid search, there are literally no ads. Which means you can do a lot of damage here, and make a lot of money, and sell a whole lot of refrigerators.
If you were to look up something like “dishwasher won’t”, you could find other opportunities too.
Let’s look up “dishwasher won’t” on the Google Keyword Planner.
The automatic search has a few suggestions, and one is “dishwasher not draining”. This has 14,000 searches a month. It says it costs $1.90 per click, but let’s see if there are any advertisers on Google.
It looks like there are no advertisers on page 1, so we should be able to get these keywords pretty cheap.
They don’t have dishwashers on Amazon, but you could find them at Best Buy or other places like that.
Air conditioners are another potential hot Amazon niche. Let’s see what we can find for “air conditioner won’t” on the Google Keyword Planner.
These suggested related keywords have cheap traffic and low competition.
We can look at this in Google and see if anyone is bidding on “air conditioner not working”.
There are a few competitors here, but not many.
Now, let’s see look at YouTube and search for “air conditioner not working”.
We see videos with thousands and millions of views, all related to air conditioners.
If we look on OfferVault, we can find a lot of offers about air conditioners.
Here is a pay-per-call offer. That means that someone calls the number, and if they stay on the line for 90 seconds talking about their air conditioner, it pays you $18. The people on the phone don’t even have to buy anything.
These are all examples of potential niches for Amazon affiliate marketing. Remember, you can find these niches just by thinking about problems with household items and what you did to solve them. If you need a solution to these problems, then someone else probably does, too.

How To Spot A Make Money Online Internet Scam In Reference To Mobe Ftc Shutdown
So there I was, 21 years old, about to have a baby, no money, broke and trying to figure out what to do to make something on myself. And I found myself in the middle of a crowded boardroom, up on stage. There are balloons, banners, cars with company logos on it, money flying around everywhere and people talking about millions of Dollars.
Someone has brought me to that meeting as an independent distributor of a network marketing company. They had these little CDs. It was difficult not to get caught up in the hype. But I sat there ( in my normal apprehensive self) calculating what was going on because the guy on the stage was talking about how he has made $12 million and boasting about how they had 30,000 people signed up to be distributors in the company.
Instantly in my head, I noticed on the page (where you sign up) that it was $420 to sign up for the company. Coincidence? I don’t think so. For those of you who know what 420 stands for, you probably don’t want to get involved in a company that uses the number 420 if you get what I mean.
But there I was sitting there and I calculated 30,000multiplied by $420 which equals about 12 million dollars. That means that this company’s sole revenue was getting new people into the company. This means that no product was sold, no goods were sold of real value and it was in fact, A Pyramid Scheme.
And today we’re talking about pyramid schemes, multi high-level scams, internet marketing fraud and what you can do to protect yourself. This is a public service announcement designed to educate you on what’s really going on in align with the tools you need to not get taken for a ride. Because recently, we’ve seen a lot of activity with the mobe FTC and various companies that are using deceptive and ridiculous tactics to get people into their companies and provide no real goods, services and you, the consumer are left footing the bill.
This is a public service announcement to anyone looking to make money online. My goal here is to educate you on what’s going on, how to get past the info-overload, how to understand what really at the end of the day is going to pay you from internet marketing world.
Now a lot of people are misconceived about this which means a lot of people get taken for a ride. But what I’m going to do is show you exactly how to figure out if a “business opportunity” is right for you, if it’s a scam and if it’s going to be the vehicle to take you where you want to go.
This is because there is a lot of shady stuff out there. There are a lot of people looking to get your hard earned money and I don’t want to see that happen. So what we’re going to do is give you the tools and enlighten on what has been going on recently in the news with the various companies being shut down.
I’ve been doing affiliate marketing and internet marketing for over 18 years now and in that time I’ve seen a lot of things come and go. Starting with the very first company I told you about at the beginning that got shut down by the FTC in about 2004.
Another company (a friend of mine who I had taught affiliate marketing too) he was making great money using the methods that I was teaching and they were legitimate ways to earn online. And he calls me up and says, “Hey Marcus, I’ve got this really cool ad cash company and all you’ve got to do is invest in this ad packs and you’re going to get money. Check it out I invested $60,000 and I’m making money every single day”. And I said that’s great but where are you making the money from?
It turns out he was only getting paid from new people joining the business and buying ad packs which didn’t really exists. Fast forward to few years later, my friend thought he had $100,000 sitting in his ad cash account ready to be taken out. And boom! They get popped with a lawsuit. This is a company that had fancy website, great order forms, everything looked and sounds legit. But in the back of my mind, I knew something didn’t look right. My friend kept begging me to put money into this company. He even got the founder’s son and its representative all on a call with me trying to get me in. I ask those founders and I said, “hey, where is the money coming from?” No one could answer the question of where the money is going to come from.
And if you ever want to spot a scam pyramid scheme or something that just doesn’t smell right, what you’ve got to do is follow the money trail. If the money trail isn’t coming from actual goods and products coming from the marketplace, then it’s usually not good. It’s usually a scam. And you’ve got to look at that because if you have companies that are making millions of dollars but they are not providing products and services that are good for everyone or a small niche or whoever for someone, then it’s going to be a scam.
All those companies out there (like the ones we’ve seen), that says, “hey sign up, we’re going to teach you how to do internet marketing’, Great, now that you’ve signed up, go get other people to sign up and we’ll teach them” they are not for real.
A lot of people in these companies are making videos and putting them everywhere that are actually feeling bad for the company owner. Now I’ve been in internet marketing in a long time and it’s been tempting to promote somebody’s product because I know that I can come home with a nice fat 7 figure paycheck just to send a couple of emails. But the fact of the matter is that I care about my users and I care about giving real-world values to people out there who are trying to make things work.
I see that at the end of the day, all they are doing is hawking expensive packages to get more people to learn things so that they can sell more people into the company and get those people to buy expensive packages and nothing of real value is being handed down. It’s a pyramid scheme and the guy at the bottom is left footing the bill-Sometimes $10,000, $5,000, $30,000 or more.
It’s too sad to see because some of these people are under retirement income, some people have spent their kid’s college funds. Some people are down and out from not getting real value. So you always in internet marketing or whatever you do have to follow the money trail.
Just like in the beginning, 420 multiplied by 30,000 people and boom! There is the money. You look at this other company, $125 million, great! How many people do they sign up, what are they really selling? You looked at the one that I talked about with my friend (that ad cash thing). More people buying ads and this people don’t even have anything they’re advertising.
They are business for the sole purpose of making the owners of the company rich until the armour stops and they get fired with the big fat lawsuit and even jail terms.
What To Look Out For When Joining A Company Or Investing In Anything
So here are some of the things you want to look out for when joining a company or investing in anything be it bitcoin, multi-level marketing or any of my product. Whatever it is, these are the things that you want to look out for
- Where Is The Money Coming From?
First and foremost, where is the money coming from? Where are you going to get paid? You notice in my stuff I always talk about like “hey you’re going to get paid by Affiliate Company like BestBuy, Amazon or even a CPA network or Adsense or something like that.”
Something that pays based on things that are bought and sold or whatever they are. Anything ranging from a book on Amazon to a T. V set on BestBuy or maybe a legal fill out form for a different type of thing or maybe a mortgage form on a CPA network. Either way, you’re getting paid by someone, either a merchant, advertiser or a company like Google.
- Is It Something That A Lot Of People Can Do?
You see when this pyramid things come out, what happens is that you’ve got to look at the numbers. Can 100,000 people make money with one method? Well let’s look at it. Can a 100,000 promote a business opportunity online and all make the income that they claimed?
Probably not, but the fact of the matter is that they are signing up millions of people. So we’ve got to look at that and say “well, at the end of the day, someone is left footing the bill”. And I hope it’s not you.
Can 100,000 people do affiliate marketing? Sure. I have only taught like 10,000 people but that’s still enough people to be able to do this business. And we have to look at it in the real world way and say, “At the end of the day, who is signing my paycheck, where is that money coming from?”
Because if you are promoting something shady or you are part of something shady, that’s your money on the line, that’s your reputation on the line. In fact, that’s your legal status on the line.
As a disclaimer, I’m not a lawyer, I’m not an expert in any of these but I do know what I’ve seen and I do know how you can protect yourself mentally and financially by not getting involved in things that are not secure.
That’s what we want to look at because a lot of people are like, “it’s the companies fault”. It’s not the companies fault; they know what they are doing when they cash your paycheck when they charge your credit card. They know exactly what’s going on and they know what they want to do. I really want you to pay attention because this stuff is everywhere.
- How Are Things Promoted?
The third thing I want you to watch out for is the way things are promoted. If you spend some time on Facebook, you’ll notice that it is littered with tons of scams. People out there will promise that you’ll make $100,000 in 90 days. Anyone promising you’re going to make something is full of shit. They don’t know what you’re going to make. They have no idea of what their stuff is going to do for you. They don’t have any idea of what you’re going to do with it. What they have to do is to provide what the average users get.
This is why on my webinar, I always say, “Hey, my average user doesn’t do anything therefore they don’t really make anything and even some that do the stuff don’t make anything”. There are different variables in the market. We don’t know what you’re going to get.
Anytime you hand over money to someone and they say, “Hey if you invest a thousand dollars in this thing, you’re going to get X amount”, they’re absolutely freaking full of shit because they don’t know what you’re going to get. If they knew, they’ll invest it themselves and keep the money for themselves. The fact of the matter is they’re doing this because they’re getting a piece of the pie.
- 4. Watch Out For How You Promote Things And How Other People Promote Things
I see this all the time, and if you see people doing this or you see people that are going to get caught up in these types of companies and they are begging you to join, send them this video. Do them the biggest favour because if they actually watch it, it’s going to get them in line and show them what to do.
But what happens is all these people go on Facebook and advertise things. They don’t have a disclaimer; they don’t tell you they are an affiliate. They don’t tell you what you have to do. And it’s just a bunch of junk that can get everyone in hot water. So, what you want to do is you want to make sure that you have good disclaimers. You want to make sure that what you promote is good. You want to make sure that every claim you make is backed up by proofs whether it’s your own proof or someone else’s proof.
- Be Honest In Upfront
How hard is it to be honest in upfront and say, “hey, you know what? This is what works for me, I don’t know if it’s going to work for you but hey, if you’re willing to give it a shot, then let’s do it”. That’s going to hinder your sales a little bit but not much. In the long run, it’s going to do you a lot better and you’re going to be providing good stuffs to the marketplace.
And that’s what you want to do; you want to watch out for this stuff. So whether you’re elderly and want to supplement your income, or you’re young and trying to make money with Shopify, affiliate marketing or whatever it is, protect yourself by understanding things. And what I’ve done is that over at affiliatedude.com/scam, I put together a little guide that you can print out; put it on your desk. And in the next time something looks too good to be true, go ahead and follow the steps even If it’s my products. Figure out what’s going on.
Don’t just listen to the countless reviews of people who were paid to review things. Go out there and do the diligent on the company. I don’t pay anyone to review stuffs but a lot of other companies do. And you want to look at that and you want to say to yourself, “Is this something that is in line with my moral value, my ethics and does it make sense? Is it something that’s actually helping people?” If I go out there and I help people by pool equipment to my affiliate link- at the end of the day, they are being helped. If I’m out there teaching people how to fix their lawn, then that’s a good thing.
Make sure that it’s something good and something everyone can do and everyone is benefiting. Not what someone is left with the bill. So, I want you to pay close attention to this.
Here is the deal: the government doesn’t want scams to be out there because a lot of people fall victim to a lot of things. These companies know exactly what they are doing. They are wolves in sheep clothing trying to get your money. They are trying to do things and not providing a real value at the end of the day. So you’ve got to focus and find someone that makes sense. You’ve got to know where the money is coming from. Make sure they have your best interest at heart. Opportunities are everywhere, opportunities are abundant.
Added Tip: Never Pay To Sell Someone Else Stuffs Unless You Actually Get Something You Know You Can Sell
A lot of companies do this. For example, they say, “Pay $420 and we’ll give you this CD and you’re going to get rich” and your money goes straight into the gas tank of the owner’s Lamborghini. So we’ve got to look at that and say, “Am I paying for opportunity or paying for something of value?”
Everything you do online have something free. On my YouTube channel, we have over 500 videos teaching you how to do stuff for free. You can go there free, set up on a free hosting, get affiliate link free, and you can get traffic free if you want to.
If you want to learn from me and follow through, we have a software set up which we charge for. Now, only buy because you want to learn not because you expect the software to make you money. The software never made anyone money, it teaches them how to make money.
I want you to be smart about this and focus. The next time someone calls you up or sends you an email about the next greatest thing, think about it” where is the money coming from?”. And if you can follow that money trail and figure out it is a legitimate thing, then you’re going to be okay.
I hope you enjoyed this note. I’m looking forward to seeing you at the guide at affiliatedude.com/scam. It’s a guide that’s going to help you fight these things up and understand what to do and how to protect yourself in this internet marketing make money online world because a lot of junk going on and a lot of these looks legit.
So we want to protect you and teach you how to do it. We are never going to tell you to buy anything from this guide. Enjoy the free video, enjoy the free guide, protect yourself and focus on getting the result you want and in ethical, moral, good way where everyone benefits. Thanks again for reading.

What Is Adwords – How Adwords Works: Drive Traffic To Your Website — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com
Today we’re talking about Google AdWords, how it works, and how you can use it to promote your business, product, service, or market yourself as an affiliate marketer.
What is Google AdWords?
Google AdWords is a paid advertisement program where you can run your own advertising campaigns. It’s like a big marketplace for all the keywords that are searched for on Google. Google is searched over 4 million times a minute—that’s like 65,000 times a second. That’s a lot of searches. As a business owner, you can put yourself in front of whoever you want who’s searching on Google.
If you did a search on Google right now, you’d see some listings at the top of the page that have little green boxes next to them. These are ads, and people are paying to show those listings there. That is run through the Google AdWords platform.
For example, let’s say we go on Google and search for Kartra bonus. That’s a product that I’ve been promoting lately that helps marketers manage all their stuff. If you do a search for Kartra bonus, you’ll see the following results.
You’ll notice that near the top that there’s one of my listings for Affiliate Marketing Dude. I’m paying for that listing to appear there as an ad.
If we scroll down the page a little bit more, you’re you’ll see a listing that’s also from my AffiliateMarketingDude.com site, but it doesn’t say “ad”.
See the difference between the two? The first listing is for paid traffic. This one is ranked using SEO, or search engine optimization. That means it’s ranked organically, and it’s free. You usually don’t want to only shoot for free traffic. Sometimes it’s very difficult to get ranked for the words you’re after, and you still might want to be higher up on the results page.
How to Use Google AdWords
To use Google AdWords, you go to their website and you sign up for an account.
You can bid on keywords or phrases, and your ad will show up when people search. Google AdWords is kind of like a bidding war. The more advertisers who are bidding your word, generally the higher the price-per-click will be. So if you have a ton of advertisers, the price is going to go really high. If you have low advertisers, or zero advertisers, the price will be really low. Sometimes a click costs several dollars, and other times it costs only a couple cents per click. This greatly depends on the word and the market.
There are several things to keep in mind when using Google AdWords.
First of all, you have to be careful in selecting your keywords. To do this, you’ll use what’s called the Google AdWords Keyword Planner. This will show you what keywords people search for and how many times a month they’re searched.
So you might have like 30,000 people a month searching for affiliate marketing, or 100,000 people a month searching for make money online, or maybe there are 500 people a month in your local area searching for real estate agent, or lawyer, or something like that.
The next thing to keep in mind is the location. You can target your ad to only show for people in a certain county, like the US, or even just a city. So if you’re a realtor in Winter Springs, Florida, your ad will only show when those people in Winter Springs search for realtor or homes for sale or something like that.
When you pair the keyword with the location, you can literally drill down to your perfect prospect.
Then we have what’s called match type. This tells you how you want your keyword to trigger the ad.
- Broad match. There is broad match, which would trigger any searches that have your words in them, no matter what order they’re in. This search would be without any other punctuation marks. (Example: coupon download). Let’s say you bid on “coupon download”. It would trigger coupon download, download coupon, how to download coupon, I need to download coupon, coupons for download—anything that has the word coupon and download in it. You’ll trigger it all under broad match.
- Exact match. Next is exact match. Here, your ad only shows up for people who search your exact keywords in the order you have them. You have these searches in brackets. (Example: [coupon download]). If you do a bid for an exact match on [coupon download], that means people have to search for coupon download for it to show up.
- Phrase match. Then, there is phrase match. Your ad will show when people search for your exact keywords or other phrases with the keywords in it. These are in quotes. (Example: “house prices”). If you bid on “house prices” as a phrase match, it will come up with things like house prices in our area, house prices 2018-2019, house prices predictions, etc. It will have everything, but it has to have the phrase match exactly in it.
Setting up the ad
When you set up the ad, you have a couple different elements:
- URL. This is your domain name. (So for me, it’d be AffiliateMarketingDude.com.)
- Target link. This is where the customer is actually going to go. This allows you to track things or test different pages. (My target link might be AffiliateMarketingDude.com/GA54 for Google AdWords campaign 54. That way, I can track it.)
- Ad copy. You’ll want your ad copy to match the keyword. So if your ad is for realtor in Winter Springs, your ad might say “Winter Springs Realtor,” and something like, “Over 2 million in sales last month,” or “guaranteed to sell or you don’t pay,” or something like that. That would be your ad.
Paying for the ad
Not only do you control the keyword, the location, the match type, and your ad, but you also control the amount you pay.
You’ll see in the Google AdWords Keyword planner a suggested bid amount.
The suggested big for Winter Springs realtor might be between 75 cents and $4. This is called pay-per-click. It doesn’t cost anything to show your ad. You only pay when someone clicks on the ad and goes to your site.
Daily ad budget
Here is where it gets really cool. You can tell Google that you only want to pay a certain amount per day. This is called your daily ad budget. For instance, you can say that you only want to pay $20 per day. So if you’re paying $1 per click, you’re only going to get 20 clicks a day. In your business, that might be enough to generate some income, and with some others, maybe you need more.
Once 20 people click on your ad, Google will pause it and stop showing it. Then the next day, it will start over.
Data and analytics
Google makes it really easy to see your stats and control everything you’re doing. You can go into your account and see what’s working and what’s not. You can see the keywords that people clicked on and the pages they went to. If an ad’s not working well, you can pause it. If it’s working, you can give it a higher budget.
You never want to promote an affiliate product directly on Google AdWords. They don’t really care for that. Instead, you want to promote yourself or your website as the commodity in your market. That way, when people come to you, they can join your mailing list. They can check out the stuff that you have on your site. They could read the information. They can watch the videos. Whatever it is you have for them, they’re going to look at that. Hopefully they’ll like what you have to offer, and they’ll want to learn more.

Find Hot Amazon Affiliate Niche In Seconds-For Affiliate Marketing
Last night we were sitting there watching T. V with my wife and kids. Then all of a sudden, we hear this boom! Outside! We all rush outside and we hear this hissing noise and it looks like its steaming everywhere. And it’s the middle of the night, the light is not working and we’re going crazy. What is this sound? So we go around and found out that our pool filter had blown up.
Luckily, nothing was damaged, no one was hurt. But today what we’re going to do is we’re going to talk to you about how that is one of the hottest affiliate niches and how you can find Amazon affiliate niches in seconds.
Before we go any further, if you like learning about how to make money online with affiliate marketing and Amazon and all other ways, then go ahead and click that subscribe button right now and hit the little bell notification icon. That way you get my latest videos when I come out with them and you can be here with me every Wednesday when we do a live training. So do that right now when it’s fresh on your mind.
Now let’s dive in and talk about how to find this hot Amazon affiliate niches and why my pool blowing up is something I think we can learn from. Let’s go over to the Google Adword keyword tool and take a look for the word “pool filter”.
Now you’re going to notice that the competition set is slightly high but you’re going to notice that the numbers are actually pretty low in comparison of what this niche sells because pool filters can be thousands of dollars. The average is like $500. So there is a lot of money in this market and there is a lot of people getting a lot of traffic. For example, if I am to take some of these people on YouTube with videos about pool filters.
Here is a guy here with 5000 views, 6000 views, 10,000 views, 75, 000, on and on we go. So a lot of people are looking at issues with pool equipment and that is a hot niche. As you can see, this pool filters on Amazon are pretty expensive.
Because these are in the category of patio, lawn, and garden, you’re going to get like 8% commission as per their guide right now. That means if I get 8% on a 6$600 pool filter, that means we’re going to get $48 per sale( which is pretty good). That means if you get $48 per sale and you sell 2 of them a day, that’s $96 a day. $96 in a year(365 days) , that’s $35,000 a year with one little site about one little item which is pretty done cool. So, you can find lots of niches like this, and I want to challenge you to find them by actually going through and looking at some of the household problems that you’ve had lately. Maybe your DVD went out, or maybe you want to fix your stereo system. And the way you can find this is by going to the Google Adwords tool and typing in the last three things that went wrong in your house. Maybe you’re typing in like “refrigerator won’t”.
So look at that, “refrigerator not cooling with 5400 searches a month with a very low competition. If you want to pay for the traffic, it’s like 16 cents. If you want to look it up on free traffic, you can probably get that too with a little work. And you look at this; you can actually go to Amazon, type in “refrigerator”. Here are the search results:
Most people are going to go for the most expensive ones in their house. And again, your commission on this is going to be pretty high. There are also other affiliate networks where you can get this stuffs on such as BestBuy, and all different places. Also, you can refer them to CPA affiliate offers for refrigerator repair, home repair, and different things like that. As you can see, the sky is the limit to what you can do. You can literarily just have a site that’s about refrigerators not cooling. You can even sell extended warranties for refrigerators and things like that and make a ton of money.
If we go to Google and search for “refrigerator not cooling”, there is only 305,000competing and that’s not too bad. And on the paid search, there’s literarily no one which means you can do a lot of damage here, make a lot of money and sell a hell of a lot of refrigerators. You can go through and find other stuffs. Perhaps, “dishwasher won’t”.
So here we have “dishwasher not draining” with 14,000 searches a month. Now it seems there is only one advertiser on Google which means we can get this pretty done cheap.
And again if you go to Amazon and look up “dishwasher”,
You can also form out leads if you want to go to Offervault and type in “repair”. Okay we got “home service repair.
. Now look at that, low competition. So you can see that there is a lot of stuff here for air conditional. So here is the offer on offervault for air conditioner.
Here, they stay on the line for 90 seconds talking about their air conditional. They pay you $18; they don’t even have “buy anything”. If you look at this stuffs, you’ll see that it’s really easy to do.
You can even do like, “dog hair pool” (this is the one I looked up to see if my dog hair was actually clogging)
You can teach these people (like me I didn’t know that my dog hair can clog my pool filter and make it blow up). These people would probably like to know that and they’ll probably like you to tell them.
Now what I want you to do is that you should go and think about the last three things that happened in your house.. Now, the reason I tell you the things that happened is because you’re going to have experience with it. You know a little about it and you know what you did to fix it.
You can actually go through and make a little website about this, lead them to Amazon products and make lots of money. It’s actually really easy. So, if you like these kinds of stuff, make sure you subscribe right now, click the little bell and hop over to Affiliatemarketingdude.com, put your name and email in the box.
Get my free toolbar and I’ll help you find this offers, help you find these niches and help you learn to make money online with Affiliate marketing. I hope you like this? I’m going to go to Disney land with the kids, hopefully, when I’m back the pool man will be done fixing our filter. Thanks for reading this note.
