LEARN THE PROPER SKILLS necessary to build an affiliate marketing business from scratch, from your computer!

This course is a solid, step-by-step system with clear, easily to follow instructions. We fast track you from knowing nothing to knowing the fundamentals of affiliate marketing and Organic SEO in JUST ONE AFTERNOON!

Companies need traffic. They need customers, they need sales and they need growth. It doesn’t matter how big a company is, they can’t do everything themselves. Even Amazon needs help.

This is where you come in, as an affiliate. You act as a commissioned salesperson who drives traffic to the business you have a relationship with. The only thing you’re responsible for is finding the traffic … and then converting that traffic to sales.

My name is Chris Molnar, part of the OMC team with Tim Godfrey and Aidan Booth, and I have been building affiliate websites since 2005. Over several hundred sites in dozens of niches, I have witnessed all the Google changes through the years, but one thing has always remained constant ... the need to offer valuable content to solve people's problems. That is all affiliate marketing is.

I have dabbled in black hat and white hat SEO, and if there's one piece of advice I can give to new students ... if you want a stable business with sustainable results ... do not cheat and take short cuts!

In this course, I lay the solid foundations of a real business for the long term. After following this course and following the instructions, you can have an income stream that can last for years with little maintenance ... true, passive, automated income.

Preview 02:36

Since a majority of our traffic will be through the Google search engine, I teach you how to build affiliate sites so Google will LOVE you. I go straight to the source, and explain in Google's words how they advise you to build and market websites with affiliate links.

Does Google Like Affiliate Sites?

A quick primer on ranking in Google. I introduce the terms "off-page" and "on-page" search engine optimization, and how Google ranks websites. An entire section will be devoted to ranking and search engine optimization techniques.

Ranking Organically in Google

A quick primer on the concept of content marketing, and how you use quality content to rank naturally on Google, as well as ways for your visitors to click to your content and remain on your site to read what you have published.

+ Niche Market Research
7 lectures 30:39

Before you begin affiliate marketing, you need to think less about the money and more about WHY people would want to click to your website and continue to visit your site. First and foremost, you need to solve your visitor's problem by offering an effective solution.

Preview 01:14

In this lecture you will learn what a niche is, and the reasons why you should choose a niche over a larger, wide-ranging topic.

Preview 02:57

How do you go about choosing a niche topic? I explain the best way to go about brainstorming and researching a profitable niche to give you the best chance to succeed.

Choosing a Topic

In this lecture, I go through the fundamentals of keyword research, interpreting the numbers, free and paid-for tools, and using this information to choose a niche.

Keyword Research

I discuss the concept of user intent as a Google ranking signal, as a building block of knowledge for when we go into content creation and marketing in a future section.

User Intent

Who is the "perfect" customer for your niche? Knowing this will help you in the lingo, emotions, problems and solutions for your customer. I also include a pdf guide and a worksheet so you can research and figure out who your perfect customer is for effective, targeted marketing and maximum sales.

Your "Perfect" Customer

The last step in niche research is measuring your competition. I introduce a free competitor research tool and plugin, so you can analyse certain keywords and see the strength (and weaknesses) of your competition so you can rank with them or beyond them.
