I spent 2 years putting together a course on affiliate management that I thought/knew was pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself.
I still do own that domain, TheAffiliateGuy.com, and I still see a bigger chunk of money from that industry than I do Podcasting.
Now, yes, this wacky world of Podcasting got in the way (and it is my passion right now), but the content for that course was solid. A dozen plus people paid a thousand bucks to run through my first version of the program and I couldn’t have been happier with the content. Nobody asked for their money back so I must have done something right.
Affiliate Manager Secrets was that great little course that coulda/shoulda/woulda been – but I got distracted in getting it out.
You snooze, you lose.
You get distracted, someone else launches.
Then, suddenly, 2 courses on the same topic hit the market. One of them I can’t speak of because I haven’t read it, or seen anything of it. I wasn’t invited to be part of the launch. No sour grapes here, just reporting the facts.
But Anik’s The Affiliate Manager arrived at my office and, wow, the thing rocks.
I’ve always been frustrated with affiliate manager type training because it was so sterile that it became pointless – or so niche that it became useless.
This is neither.
The basic course is there – everything you need to launch an affiliate program that becomes the pride and joy of your organization, not the ugly red stepchild that these programs often tend to be.
The support is there – hours and hours of top programs spilling their guts on how those programs got that way.
The tools are there – the pack of cheatsheets alone are worth the price of admission.
If you have ever pondered launching an affiliate program – I can’t recommend it high enough.
