Entrepreneur Affiliates Mastery Review (Anthony Alfonso Course)
Today, we’ll be going through a course by Anthony Alfonso on affiliate marketing. We’ll go through the content to help you decide whether the $997 are worth it or not. It’s not one of the cheapest courses you can get right now, but we’ll see if it’s priced at its actual value.
As usual, you can go to the bottom and find out my final verdict, or you can read on to discover its contents.
This is a course aimed towards beginners or people looking to start a business from zero with the strategies used by Anthony himself. After going through the initial setting up, the course goes into the different processes until you have a running business you can scale with Facebook Ads.
Before going into the course, let’s see who’s Anthony.
Who’s the author?
Anthony is an affiliate marketer with his own YouTube channel who claims to make constant 6 figures in income through his business with the different strategies employed, focused on paid advertising. He uses Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and even Bing Ads plus email marketing.
You’ve probably stumbled into his channel, currently circling the 10,000 subscribers mark, if you stay on top of this type of content.
His bio describes the content as a documentation of his entrepreneur and life journey through vlogs and reviews. He also has your usual videos about online entrepreneurship, focused on affiliate marketing and Amazon’s FBA program.
He usually uploads at least 1 video every week, and he has a solid color palette that identifies his videos. You can also see lots of affiliate links on his video descriptions, so he at least has some experience.
Reviewing Entrepreneur Affiliates Mastery
The course splits into 9 modules with videos on various topics. Each section ends with homework you can use to implement the different teachings he provides, and you also have access to your usual Facebook group and 3 months of email support, which is odd, considering how other courses provide the same for a lifetime.
It’s important to note how the course focuses on paid advertising, and even the author states in his FAQ how you should have a budget around $1,000 or $1,5000 for investing into the strategies provided. That adds up to the course’s initial price, making this a $2,000 or more investment if you want to apply everything taught.
Let’s go into the modules.
The course starts with a standard intro with a few videos explaining affiliate marketing and cost per action (CPA). You’re taught how this business works plus how actions work together to net you your referral commissions.
However, most people spending $1,000 on a course should at least know what affiliate marketing is. This content is also stuff you can find for free on the internet with a lot more detail, so it’s not a very strong introduction to the business.
There’s also the link to the private group for support.
The first real module gives you the best affiliate programs you can join for finding your products, and there’s also a video explaining how you can apply and be accepted into these circles.
The other videos cover the advantages of promoting digital products with high commissions instead of physical products, and it also explains evergreen niches that are good for promoting at all times. You also learn which offers you should stay away from.
The next module teaches you how to spy on your competitors to see what strategies are working for them. You have some videos on manual methods for this task before going into the tools you can purchase to do it for you.
The last video is on strategies you can exploit for some viral traffic.
This module introduces you to the concept of landing pages, their functions, and how you can create them. It’s mostly building a single page website that you can use for visitors to sign up and give you leads to get information or digital bonuses like eBooks.
There are some videos on how an affiliate landing page should look, an explanation of how funnels work through value provision, and some strategies to get more conversions from your landing pages and getting your leads.
You can also see some efficient and lousy landing pages, plus how to outsource this work to someone else, but note this will also cost you.
The next module is about tracking your promotions and see how they perform.
You learn what tracking actually is, how it works, some terminology you want to understand, and how to do your own tracking on your campaigns.
There are also some videos explaining how you can set up your custom domain and using your collected emails to track your affiliate sales.
The 5th module is about email marketing, with a video introducing you to the strategy and how it works. You get the same knowledge from the 101 lesson here.
There are also some videos on actually setting up your campaign from zero, and you learn how to spy on your competitors again, this time to see how they run their email marketing campaigns.
You receive a few insights regarding how to successfully build your list and how a good one should look in 2 different videos, and it closes with scaling your strategy and outsourcing this task.
This module on fan pages is the only 100% free traffic approach you’re taught in this course, and it focuses on creating them with Facebook.
The first video goes through why these pages are effective, and it then goes into setting them up and implementing bots for Messenger.
This module offers 15 different videos covering Facebook marketing, specifically paid methods offered by the platform.
There’s content on how to use your business manager interface and how to manage your account. It explains the rules of the platform. You learn about how good and bad ads look like and what makes them so.
There are some swipe strategies before going into how to set up and use your pixels for your affiliate marketing. The next video goes into targeting your offers before another one on how these targeted (dark) posts compare to existing ones.
You learn how to set up your first ads campaign and how to optimize them. Before that, you’re taught how to create your account. As well as optimizing, you also learn when you should get rid unsuccessful campaigns, and another video goes the opposite way: when to scale successful ones and how.
There’s another video on when you should retarget them and how to do so, and it closes with how to outsource this task.
This course makes an interesting choice going with Bing instead of Google Ads, as you might have noticed earlier in this article. There are entire courses dedicated to explaining Google Ads due to its traffic, but I guess Bing can work as well.
You have 15 more videos in this module, making it the largest section together with the Facebook Ads one.
The videos cover how Bing Ads work and what are the best offers you can use to promote with this platform. You again learn to spy on your competitors to see how they’re using it and what they’re promoting.
There are 2 lessons on copywriting: the first one goes into how you to write your ad copy, and the second one goes over keywords and how to understand the different types. There’s also a video near the end on negative keywords.
There’s a video comparing brand and broad bidding, and then there’s a video about understanding your account, but I’m not sure why this wasn’t the first or second video of the module.
You learn how to direct your links with campaigns here, and the next video focuses on merging your Bing and Facebook Ads.
Finally, you learn about how the back office works with Bing, the negative keyword video I mentioned, how to test your ads, and how to scale your campaigns.
There are some bonuses included, and they’re all some done-for-you marketing campaigns developed by Anthony that you can copy. Basically, you just have to leverage an already-built campaign that’s focused on the methods already discussed in this course.
You get 6 campaigns in total: 3 for Facebook and 3 for Bing, so they stick to the course material and focus.
I always advice against using templates, but I guess you can use these campaigns yourself since your audience technically isn’t seeing them. Just keep in mind everyone uses the same, and I’m not sure if Bing has any policies about these practices.
The course ends with a case study, which I guess can also work as a bonus. It’s how Alfonso started out with $0 and used his campaigns to start earning money.
Just one issue with this case study: he clearly didn’t start from $0 since he’s using paid methods strictly for this business, so don’t think this means you can jump into it without a budget and make money.
Other than that, is a fun watch, and it does provide an “inside” look into how he runs his marketing approach.
Igor is a pretty good affiliate marketer, and the numbers he’s done speak for themselves and are certainly amazing. He’s not a newcomer or a fake entrepreneur, and you can see that in the way he speaks as much as you can see it on his reputation and occasional associates.
In fact, the content inside this course is actually good, but it feels like a random conglomerate of different lessons mashed together. It has good content, but it needs work on its structure, and its seeming randomness may be confusing for newcomers.
Finally, there’s a money-back guarantee, but it’s a bit of an annoying process. You can ask for a refund, but you need to provide your 6-step checklist as proof it didn’t work before you get a refund.
In other words, refunds are based on your performance and proving that you failed despite this course’s teachings.
It’s not as bad as not having a refunds policy or asking students to watch only like 10% of your program, but it’s definitely worth considering before getting this course.
I hope you found this review useful and if you have any questions, please comment down below. I’ll be more than happy to assist you.
