People every day are learning about the significant income opportunities that can be achieved with online, affiliate marketing. As a result of this, quite a few training courses, focusing on affiliate marketing, are now available on the internet. These course help give people a foundation for all the new skills they’ll need to acquire to make a go of it online. A few people that I knew who had found success in online, affiliate sales encouraged me to find a quality training program to help with this new adventure.
When I started searching the web, I uncovered an online course called “Affilorama” offered by Mark Ling, a very successful affiliate marketer out of New Zealand. This course, at the time, gave me a good start. Other affiliate marketers I’ve spoken with have told me about some other good training courses available online. While there are quite a few good courses out there, I’ve heard about Ed Dales “The Challenge” program and Chris Farrell’s “Membership” training series. I’ve also heard about a course that’s getting some buzz and that’s Traffic Voodoo 2.0 Private Membership Site and Coaching Club. Ed Dale’s and Mark Ling’s basic courses are free of charge. Traffic Voodoo and Chris Farrell have a monthly membership format. There are also other training programs that charge a one time fee.
Recently I was asked by an aspiring affiliate marketer about a new membership style training course called the Affiliate Marketing Institute. I hadn’t heard anything about it, but told that person that I’d find out want I could and get back to her. What I discovered is that the Institute has a unique approach in the way they present their training material. Professional educators have have shown that the best way for people to learn and absorb new material is to deliver training materials in a structured and systematic manner. Modern theory shows that dumping everything at your feet all at once is simply overwhelming. It just isn’t effective. If you look around the internet, you’ll find out that many of these training programs have tons of training material and hour after hour of audio,video and written training materials. While the content is rather comprehensive, the whole approach can be intimidating and it makes people feel like they’re never going to finish and never be learn how to make money online. The more proven technique, in contrast is to offer a program that starts with the basics and then methodically proceeds to more advanced subject matter. That’s the way the Affiliate Marketing Institute has structured their training program.
The Institute will teach you everything you need to know in a step-by-step format, and delivers the material in a way that helps you apply it as your membership continues. Every few days they update the members area and add new content that builds on the things you’ve already learned. The nice thing is that if you get a little busy, as we all do from time to time, and you happen to miss an update to the members area, they automatically archive all your trainings for you. Upon your return, you’ll be greeted with that new content. In addition, you can always refer back to everything you’ve learned through the course of your training. The course begins with an introduction to affiliate marketing and it goes from there. Specific learning topics include: understanding affiliate networks, using WordPress to develop your website, niche keyword research, building prospect lists with autoresponders, article and video marketing techniques, search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click advertising (PPC), cost per action (CPA) promotions, private label rights (PLR), product creation strategies and joint venture tactics. While this list is rather comprehensive, the material boils everything down and makes it easy to digest.
There is money to be made online and affiliate marketing is one way to do it. Check out the Affiliate Marketing Institute. When you log on to the members area, you’ll immediately be impressed.
