There are very few courses online, no matter the subject, that have been around for longer than a few years. Many fizzle out in weeks, months or a year or two. Affilorama by Mark Ling first saw life in 2006 and is still around today.
That’s an accomplishment in itself! But it is any good?
I am not an affiliate for Affilorama. We’ll dig into Affilorama today and see how it compares to the stock pile of crap we’ve compiled here at StoppingScams.com and just like all my other reviews, this will be ruthless and I’ll hold nothing back.
If it’s crap, I’ll say it’s crap.
So let’s see which pile we’ll be putting Affilorama into.
Affilorama is an online study course that trains people how to do affiliate marketing. With 100+ videos in the library you’ll learn what affiliate marketing is, how to do it, and more importantly how to make good money from it.
At least this is what Mark promises.
Affilorama has been around for 9 years now and has gone through many versions. Mark says the entire course has been updated back in 2014 so it’s up to date. 5,445 people have gone through this course and Mark says some of them have gone on to do big things.
Is he another scammer? Is Affilorama worth your time or money?
Well that’s what you’re just about to find out.
At the moment you can gain access to Affilorama for free. That’s right… Free. You’ll get 100 free lessons which walks you though how affiliate marketing works and the different methods you can use to get people to click on your affiliate links.
As you can see in the picture above, not only do you get videos but you’ll also get PDFs too. I didn’t see too many PDFs so maybe that’s old copy Mark didn’t change in his latest update. But there’s transcripts and pictures that act as a walkthrough accompanying each video.
What I love about Affilorama is the way Mark and his team have broken down each topic. You can clearly see what’s covered in each section:
This is just one section that contains 9 different videos about discovering what affiliate marketing is. All of this is free inside Affilorama.
As you’re watching the videos and learning all the different facets of affiliate marketing you’ll see a little tab at the top of each video that’ll say either “complete” on “incomplete” which indicates whether you’ve watched that video yet.
The videos are a decent length too. The majority are 5-6+ minutes so it’ll take you a while to go through all 100. The longest one I saw was 23 minutes!
Once you’ve watched a video, that “incomplete” will turn green and say “complete.” When you go back into the library of videos you’ll see your progress has changed:
Now you can easily see how far you’ve progressed through the lessons.
When you first login you’ll see a small orange bar at the top with a little countdown timer:
