This course will show you exactly what you need to do in order to create a money making affiliate marketing site from start to finish. This course leaves out the fluff and sticks to the hard and valuable methods. Many courses or online articles show you just enough to have taught you something, but none of the secret tools and tricks of the trade that could make you a legitimate competitor, even though there is plenty of business to go around.
I will walk you through step by step, click by click on everything you need to think about, consider and do so that by the time you have completed this course, you will have a fully functional site loaded with products and pages pulling in search engine trafffic. Leaving the site as is will make you money after some time, however, I will show what you need to continue doing on a regular basis to increase your SERPS after this course has concluded to continue building your profitability.
I will say now, this course is pretty specifc and uses some tools and or software that costs money. Some are optional, like SEMRUSH, MOZ or Aged Domain Names on Auction Sites while others are pretty firm needs such as the affiliate marketing referral ecommerce system I use. I am not associated with nor will I make a dime from anything I propose you use in this course. I will only be proposing the use of certain tools I use personally because I know they work.
Affiliate Marketing is a broad base from which an endless variety of methods, tools and platforms can be used. This course will walk you through the details of what has made me money and will for you too.
Final note: Once you have gone through this course and finish it while looking at your completed affiliate marketing site, you could in fact let the site sit and make a few bucks, but to make real money in affiliate marketing, this is where the actual work truly begins. I will show you what you need to be doing but its up to you to stay consistent with it in order to see true growth and big checks.
Thank you and see you on the inside.

This plugin is a bit pricey for the fully automated version and I dont get too deep into it as I didnt realize how expensive it was before including it in this course. I feel that starting out with limited or no budget, Blog2Social still rules.
Formerly the Director Of Business Development for a National Private Mortgage Lender where I developed the branch from 0 to an avg of 35 units closed monthly with some months exceeding 60 units closed. Avg volume was $18 million a quarter. This was all done for one loan officer who was a producing branch manager. I am now an independent business development consultant where I am hired by mortgage banks to help expand their brand and production volume through online marketing, direct relationship building, loan officer coaching and more.
In 2014 I signed a new client of which I transitioned from doing 85% Refinance business into 95% purchase business and doubling their production over their previous year in 2015. They have just renewed their agreement with me through 2017.
UPDATE June, 2017: I am no longer an independent consultant as I have accepted a position as the Vice President Of Sales for Sagamore Home Mortgage. I will be developing branch offices around the Greater Cincinnati Tri-State Area. If you're looking to make a move in the area, connect with me.
