This Forever Affiliate review is a full review of my review copy- yes I have already had a good look at it and if you don’t believe me scroll further down and watch my video which goes behind the scenes and as an added benefit (not) has my voice on it.Yes I am from the UK-sorry for that.
Andrew Hansen who is releasing Forever Affiliate considers that search engine traffic is the most targeted and cheapest form of traffic. As a means of making a passive income with reduced stress, and relatively low cost it cannot be beaten- if you get it right. That is the rub for many affiliates who suffered at the hands of Google last year and may have abandoned what could for some be the holy grail of internet marketing.
Has Andrew Hansen got it right with Forever Affiliate?This is my honest Forever Affiliate Review
Well as the title says this is a forever affiliate review and I have a copy of it which I have now gone through. As I say proof of that and me are in the video at the bottom of this page. You can see from that that Forever Affiliate is a series of videos and video transcripts with accompanying introductions to each section.
So what are you getting for your money exactly?
There are over 40 videos in the copy I have, of varying lengths with accompanying transcripts, so it could take some time to work through. It is however laid out in a logical step by step fashion, with the theory of the Forever Affiliate program followed by the initial research stage, which is in turn followed by the testing and validation stage and finally by the expansion stage.
I found the testing and validation stage very useful and it gave some techniques I hadn’t seen before to ensure that you are as safe as you can be entering a market or promoting a product. I buy a lot of courses and this was new to me.
Andrew gives some live examples of what sorts of products would pass this testing stage and those that are best avoided. As I was actually promoting the product he said to avoid (one I have got nowhere with), it would have been better for me if Forever Affiliate had been released a few months ago, when I thought I was onto a winner. Had I followed this technique then, I would have avoided the time and cost of trying to promote that particular product. This stage in the process for me is worth the cost of the course alone to be honest. Its not just the cost, its the wasted time spent on it. Thats one domain name to throw in the bin!
On a related note, there is a really good video called “Where Affiliates Like Us Really Make Money” Here is a screenshot. nb its not clickable
This is in his experience where most people generally make most money,specifically following this system. This is something he has never spoken about before and is an absolute goldmine. It will allow you to really narrow and focus on what are the markets that will make money and allow you to build a list. Obviously you need to take a look at that video pretty quickly. Whilst you can and should follow the steps he gives you, this video should be looked at early on because he gives you markets to look at before you start further research.
Another video you will really like is this one showing you how to have really high quality affiliate offers,with low competition, with huge volumes of traffic which is growing come to your site, without any (or any real ) effort. Honestly this is dynamite stuff. This is not some standard, find a niche, throw up a website, build links sort of course- its nothing like that. As I say 40+ videos has to suggest to anyone that this is not that sort of course. Not even close. NB THE SCREENSHOT IS NOT CLICKABLE
Other sections show you what sort of blog works best with this sort of site and there are videos showing you how to install and configure properly. If you have experience in building blogs already, then you can skip a few videos and rejoin the program- useful tips for those who feel faint at the idea of seeing yet another video about wordpress- although trust me, I have installed a number of blogs and there were still a lot of handy tips in those videos to help me, so if you are a total newbie to the process then this section of the course will be very helpful to you.
Once up and running with correct plugins installed, you are then given help on what sort of content to write, how to lay out the content so it is engaging and helps with conversions and finally the real thing- how to promote without falling foul of google and how then to get the rankings.
If you have read enough to make a decision, then
Carrying on with my forever affiliate review however. There are some things you need to know when promoting a new site and Andrew is very specific with his guidance. His view is, get this wrong and you may find your earning potential from a site will be seriously comprised. Getting the wrong plug in is one thing but the wrong sorts of promotion and link building is quite another as anyone in the affiliate marketing arena will tell you. It is really important stuff. The reason it is even a discussion is because Google is quite sensitive to your site and can raise red flags. There are a number of steps to avoid and he gives you the numbers and the methods of link building. Some of this is not new but the way you do it certainly is. These are both white hat and grey hat links,but do them too quickly- at your peril!
What Else Do You Get?
What more do you want? Really? There a number of bonus products or tools as Andrew calls them. To be frank, I dont really look at those- they just clutter up my hard drive. Yes I know loads of affiliates will be offering you bonus things when you buy through their link but do you ever use them? I prefer to give an honest review- having seen the product. Just check those other affiliate sites? Any proof? Thought not. Anyway apart from those bonuses that I cannot see the point of, Andrew does give you a real bonus called “Our Most Profitable Niches”. Beat that! Anyway

So are there any downsides to forever affiliate? To be blunt I cannot really see any. I was going to say that there wasnt enough on linking, but I had missed some of the videos- might be a little criticism of some of the layout of the program, or possibly of my lack of attention to detail! With any course, it would be impossible to cover everything and I dont doubt that forever affiliate has some gaps and I can tell that by looking at some of the links that have been made to Forever Affiliate itself- having said that, for a thorough grounding in affiliate marketing and what is working right now in 2013, you would be hard pressed to find better.
