Are you looking to make money online as an affiliate? There are plenty of programs like Clickbank, 6 Figure Success Academy, 12 Minute Affiliate, 1K a day, Super Affiliate Network, Legendary Marketer, 4 Percent Group, Easy1Up, Clickfunnels, JVZoo, Wealthy Affiliate, Udimi, CJ, Power Lead System, Partner with Anthony, Six Figure Mentors If so, keep reading. You are in the right place.
There are loads of programs out there that claim to help you create an online business and turn it into a ‘great little earner’. Which one(s) you decide to join will depend upon what you actually want from the program. There will always be pros and cons of all options.
Below are three of the programs I have had some experience of, Legendary Marketer, Partner with Anthony, and Six Figure Mentors.
The first I experienced was the Six Figure Mentors– this had great step-by-step lessons on setting up a website- it was very thorough and helped me no end. However, I went no further with the system as I felt it was quite expensive and was geared towards marketing SGM above everything else, which wasn’t for me.
Next came Anthony Morrison, I have not been overly impressed with this, although it has helped explain sales funnels a little more to an absolute beginner. Support was good to start with and then suddenly stopped!
Finally, I found Legendary Marketer and in my humble opinion, it is the best out of the three reviewed here (for me and what I wanted). I actually wish I had found it sooner- it offers so much value and has very reasonably priced entry-level products, great videos, and superb support- they seem to really care about their clients.
Legendary Marketer is a comprehensive online training university for aspiring digital entrepreneurs made up of digital courses, eBooks, one-on-one coaching, support groups as well as one-on-one support, and even live networking events where students meet six and seven-figure entrepreneurs. Its founder and CEO is David Sharpe.
The brand produces low, medium, and high-ticket training materials at all levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. It is one of the most comprehensive, popular, and beginner-friendly marketing academies that I have come across.
Dave really knows his stuff, and he seems to genuinely care about his students and affiliates. He and his team know everything there is to know about marketing and offer lots of help and support, coaching and, consulting. Primarily it appears to be aimed at beginners but as you go through there are lots of valuable resources for beginners and experts alike.
Legendary Marketer is one of the most popular online marketing training brands out there because it’s one of the only websites that offers comprehensive, entry-level training for as little as $1.99 The Insider’s Guide to Affiliate Marketing is one of the best books about affiliate marketing for beginners I have seen.
I believe its popularity is also down to the fact that the program does not just teach you how to do one type of business but shares key ideas behind all online businesses. Once you have learned these you can then choose the path you wish to take, whether that is affiliate marketing or not. For example, once you do the 15-Day Business Builder Challenge, you’ll have the base of knowledge behind every successful affiliate site, eCom brand, or even YouTube channel. Just choose the one that stands out to you and start learning more about it.
Overall, I don’t think any of the training sections are elite. It’s more that they’re easy to digest and direct. Plus, you get a one-on-one advisor and regular assessment to make sure you’re learning (great for people like me…).
Some of my favourite things about Legendary Marketer.
Great entry-level training for a cheap price: Most free eBooks, courses, or videos teach you absolutely nothing. They only exist to get your email, so the company can bother you with upsells.
Legendary Marketer’s entry-level products are full of good info, especially the Insider’s Guide to Affiliate Marketing.
The Insider’s Guide to Affiliate Marketing $1.99
It comes with solid info on:
- How to find a niche product
- How to choose a niche with proven buyers
- How to build a simple site for your products
- How to run promotions
- Scaling secrets
The affiliate program is great
Legendary Marketer’s affiliate program is one of the best in the business for a few key reasons.
- Entry-Level Products: There are a ton of great entry-level products, so new users are more likely to sign up. This gives you more “bites at the apple” to earn a commission. Say someone signs up for the $1.99 eBook but then buys a higher-ticket item. You get a commission on that too.
- Access to Funnels: You get access to custom funnels for different products like the Copywriter’s Playbook, Business Challenge Black, and 15 Second Free Leads. They share funnels created in ClickFunnels, so you can integrate them into your ClickFunnels and even customize them.
- Training: Dave and his team givee so much support and suggestions on how to market the products. There are step-by-step videos giving advice on the best way to market products on a variety of social media platforms.
The 15-Day Challenge $7
The 15-day challenge is only $7, this teaches the fundamentals of running a successful online business.
- Building a sales funnel
- Value ladders
- Multiple income streams
- Lead generation
- High-income skills
The Legendary Marketers Club (their flagship product) is $30/month. It’s very comprehensive, so give yourself 2-3 months to go through the meat of it. After 3 months, if you’re confident enough, just cancel. Congrats, you just gained a ton of marketing knowledge for $97. That’s a fraction of some of the mid-level marketing courses that can cost $400+.
Copywriters Playbook $1
Another great entry-level product is the Copywriters Playbook. It is a step-by-step course to take you from a non-writer to a pro copywriter. Here is what is included in the training:
- How to get maximum clarity on your offer by asking the right questions
- The 4 crucial elements to your offer
- Newbie mistakes that will ruin your copy
- A nifty little formula proven to increase conversion on ads (so you don’t waste 4 hours overanalyzing a 25-word ad)
- How to move past features and find the real benefits
- The 5 reasons people buy
Then, you get a bunch of bonuses like:
- David’s private cliff notes
- A 43-page eBook
- A huge headline swipe file
- High-value template
These tools will help you:
- Freelance: Start charging clients good money to write their ads, sales pages, etc. That’s an instant income stream.
- Write your own copy: No need to hire high-priced copywriters or waste time searching for good writers.
- Earn more on your ads: Instead of writing low-converting ads, you’ll know how to write ads that actually make sales.
15 Second Leads $1
A step-by-step course on generating leads on Tik Tok. Dave walks you through how to set up a profile and create compelling content.
An overview of what is included:
- Creating your plan: Jake Thornhill tells you how to create up to 150 TikTok content ideas and build a solid plan moving forward.
- Building a profile: Next, the course teaches you how to build the perfect business profile, which actually helps monetize more quickly.
- Get TikTok to share your videos: TikTok uses a point system to determine which videos it shows to a particular audience. This training shows you how to game that system to get TikTok to share your videos way more than it normally would, so you’ll get more followers than your competitors do.
- Post what people want to watch: In this video, a successful TikTok marketer shows you how to create content that people actually want to watch and respond to.
I am not so keen on.
To unlock higher commission rates, you’ve got to be a Pro member. The two plans are like this:
1. Upgrading for higher commissions
- Basic: Basic is free and you get 10-30% commission depending on a bunch of factors.
- Pro: 30-60% commissions, but it costs $29.95 per month.
This is I believe to protect the reputation of Dave and the business which is understandable.
2. The blocked countries list is restrictive
The list of blocked countries is pretty long.
Legendary Marketer’s Club ($30/mo)
Legendary Marketer’s Club (the Netflix of online marketing training) is Legendary Marketer’s flagship subscription service. I’m usually someone who likes a structured, brick-by-brick training course, but this is an excellent “hands-off” library with a ton of high-value training.
Traffic University ($1,500)
A step-by-step (or should I say click-by-click) training course on how to advertise on Facebook, YouTube, Google, and Instagram to scale your business quickly. This is a little pricey but like all the other products it contains a great deal of value.
Affiliate Marketing Business Blueprint ($2,500)
The Affiliate Marketing Business Blueprint is a complete blueprint for setting up a successful affiliate income online, including finding a product, bringing in traffic, and choosing the right affiliate networks.
Digital Products Business Blueprint ($2,500)
The Digital Products Business Blueprint is well worth the price. This blueprint walks you through how to create and advertise a virtual product, plan your curriculum, execute the project, and bring in your first customers. In a month, you could be earning a passive income from a digital product that requires almost no maintenance once it’s up and running.
Further super high-end products:
Coaching and Consulting Business Blueprint (S2,500)
This training includes:
- How to define your niche
- How to accept payments
- How to find the right advertising channels
- How to bring in qualified leads
- How to successfully pitch clients
Live Events and Masterminds Business Blueprint
This training is all about how to put on live events, save on costs, and make a profit.
Anthony Morrison is a well-known online entrepreneur with over 10 years of experience in affiliate marketing
Partner With Anthony is a 13 video session training course aimed at teaching you how to make money as an affiliate marketer, however, you don’t actually get to work with Anthony. So in the true sense of the word, it is not a partnership. You do get access to his training videos and eBooks but you can’t contact Anthony directly, instead you raise a support ticket with his support team.
You will be able to use his done-for-you sales funnels but You will first have to go through the sales funnel yourself. This will cost only $7 but after that, you will be encouraged to buy many other Anthony Morrison Products.
Inside The Training Area
Log into the PWA members area and you’ll find links to the 13 video sessions and downloadable PDF files. The videos tell you about the tools and membership sites you’re going to need to sign up for to be able to promote his courses. He will show you step-by-step how to get your landing pages set up and your first email campaign up and running. There is a time delay for each lesson though so you’re going to have to wait 24 hours after completing the previous lesson before you can move on to the next. He says this is so you don’t skip through without ‘fully absorbing’ all the information.
Once inside the member’s area, you’re on your own as support here is not great. There is no question and answers area, no members forum, and no way to contact Anthony directly, despite the name of the program. This means if you get stuck or are unsure at any point, your only course of action is raising a support ticket with Anthony’s outsourced support team. While they can help you with technical questions surrounding your account set up, these people have very little knowledge or experience with affiliate marketing.
Can You Make Money With Partner With Anthony?
Become an affiliate marketer, take massive action and you can build a very lucrative income stream for yourself. I’ve run successful internet businesses for 5 years now and I’m a huge believer in people achieving financial freedom online.
Unfortunately, though, this seemingly low-priced course comes with a lot of unexpected costs further down the line that we were not made aware of in the promo video (we’ll go through some of these in a second).
In short, yes you can make money with this course but keep in mind that you’ll have to spend money to make money and the only way to do that is by getting others to sign up for the Partner With Anthony program itself.
Counting The Real Cost
Partner With Anthony has two payment options; you can either pay a one-time fee of $97 or pay $7 per month for life.
But this is only the beginning… to get the full ‘effect’ there are several upsells:
Upsell 1: ClickFunnels – $99-$297/month
With a 14 day free trial, ClickFunnels.com gives you the software to create sales funnels.
Upsell 2: BuildRedirects – $19.99-$99.99/month
BuildRedirects.com gives you clicks and conversion tracking software.
Upsell 3: Digital Marketing Mastermind – $69.95/year
Digital Marketing Mastermind is Anthony Morrison’s very own membership site with more training videos and a private Facebook group.
Upsell 4: M Insider Newsletter – $9.95/month
The M Insider Newsletter is a monthly newsletter about improving your campaigns and earning ‘even more money’.
Upsell 5: Get Response – $15-$1,199/month
GetResponse.com gives you email autoresponders and landing pages.
Upsell 6: AWeber – $19-$149/month
Sign up with Aweber.com and you’ll be able to start collecting email subscribers.
Is Partner With Anthony A Scam?
There’s undoubtedly some good information to glean from Anthony’s years of experience in online business. However, it depends on what you actually require from your program, and because of some of the issues mentioned below, it may not be the right fit for you.
- Anthony misleads people into thinking they’re going to be working with him.
- People sign up to a $7/month program and end up paying $100’s in unexpected costs.
- There’s a total lack of support for members.
- Partner With Anthony is about making money promoting Partner With Anthony.
- There’s a ton of negative reviews and complaints from members fighting for refunds (and not getting them).
