In my honest opinion, I like that Affilorama has 7 day free trial and to try out the Premium member for $1 for the first 30 days. It is a little confusing on which package to choose from. As a beginner in affiliate marketing and someone starting a online business, I personally don’t want to spend a lot of money and I’m sure you don’t either. There is good information to learn but at the same time there is outdated information that could make your new online business fail. Outdated things are backlinking (penalized by google and your site will get deranked), private label rights(duplicate content), and page rank. I felt like I was in a dead program because the discussions were not current or active which indicated the community was not active. Here’s an image below. The last comment was on 12/2015. We are in the year 2016 now, aren’t we?
In my experience, when you enter into a program and there is upsells of products, it is a turn off for me. Also, I have been left in the dark with other money making programs. Doing my research, there were several reviews where people did not like the lack of support in the program. They also did not like the long wait for a response. When I don’t get a quick response, I don’t find them very supportive and that’s a negative view to me.
I don’t agree with the affilojetpack where 80% of the work is done for you and you put in 20% of the work. It puts you at a disadvantage, because you don’t learn all the steps in building a successful business online, so you will be dependent on them permanently. You want to be independent to be your own boss and know what the heck you are doing. If you want to get money quick, it its just like going into a get rich overnight scheme. A little strange, when I clicked on Affilojetpack, it indicated “The door is closed.” Not very competent site to me.
I found the content provided for the lessons a little overwhelming. It felt unorganized. I didn’t know which order I was supposed to learn the lessons. The layout of the course was not easy to follow.
What I found fishy was why do they include google analytics as a affilotool when google analytics is free? To me, that is their way of ripping us off by charging us an extra $20 a month. If you calculate $67X12 months=$804. That is a lot of money compared to $359/yr with Wealthy Affiliate. Not only that, you have the upsells in Affilorama so you may end up spending a total of $2095 because they have their ways of convincing you that you need all of the packages.
I found a great program that does not have any hidden fees. You pay it and you get all the features monthly. You even get 2 free websites when you join as a starter member at no cost to you and you don’t have to pay extra to get step by step instruction on building a website. Any other tools you need, Wealthy Affiliate will find stuff that you can use where you wont have to spend another penny. You can also get a discount if you want to pay yearly at $359. That is less than $1 a day for up to date information and training with active support and a active community.
