I recently had a chance to review The Secret Affiliate Code. It is an info product (ebook, videos, audio) all about getting ahead as an affiliate marketer. Aka making money promoting other people’s products.
This is my absolute favorite way to make money online. I have owned my own company in the past…three companies actually. One sold physical products (my own and wholesale) and the other two were service businesses. ALL were successful but I wasn’t happy long term. I found something I truly love in affiliate marketing. I don’t have to serve customers, send orders, keep inventory, etc. I just write…which I love to do…and promote other people’s products for a commission.
The Secret Affiliate Code shows you how one successful Internet Marketer uses a special system to drive traffic to his affiliate sites, ranking number one in Google and raking in a ton of money….as in thousands in one day. Overall I liked the book. I think it would be an awesome read for someone who is just getting into affiliate marketing. But it also had some tricks for veterans to. It gives links to all the major affiliate companies, it explains how you can find high conversion products, and most importantly how to drive lots of traffic your way.
What I appreciate most is that this is not a book that touts some fast, easy way to make money. This system does require time and work…it is not plug and play. Some of it seems kind of tedious even but it is not black hat and it is valuable for those that want traffic and high rankings right away and can’t wait entirely on their awesome content. The book has quite a bit of info about setting up Adwords campaigns with pictures and clear instructions and tips to make sure you aren’t going to go broke paying for traffic. But for the most part this book is all about FREE traffic and links using web 2.0 savvy. It was also full of cool links I had never seen that will be useful in the future.
