This Forever Affiliate Review is a work in progress. Your mileage may vary.
So first off, let me say this is a real review — not a review designed to get affiliate clicks. If the review is helpful to you, and you want to buy the course, that is awesome. If you want to buy through my affiliate link, that is even better. But the review is my honest opinion. That's how I roll. Ask around.
If you have a question about the course before (of after) you buy, leave it in the comments. Andrew is a long-time friend, and I will try to help you get an answer.
What is Forever Affiliate (Review)
Forever Affiliate is the latest affiliate marketing course from Andrew Hansen. It's so new in fact that I am still working through the course myself. There are over 50 videos I think. I can tell you that I am really amazed at the quality of stuff that I have seen so far. The instruction is clear and I really think it is created in a way that just about anyone (probably even you) can follow it. By the way, if you are looking for a “taste” of what Andrew is delivering, check out this free report that gives the background information about why Andrew is offering this course now. If you like the report, you will like the course.
Forever Affiliate Overview:
As part of this Forever Affiliate Review, I would like to give you an idea what the course is really about. To describe it in a paragraph, I would say that the course teaches how to find high-profit affiliate offers with winnable buyer keywords. Lot's of emphasis on the right offers and the right keywords. The course then explains how to get traffic for those keywords. Because of the nature of the traffic and the keywords, conversions are high. And because of the offers themselves, sales and commissions are high too. Andrew cites examples of hundreds of dollars a month from just a handful of daily visitors.
What is sort of exciting about the course is that Andrew has several examples of people that have successfully created sites generating hundreds of dollars per month with this “method.” There is nothing really “magic” about Andrew's approach — it's just smart.
The Content Of Forever Affiliate:
The Forever Affiliate course is jammed full of helpful videos organized into four major areas as shown in the screen shot below. There areas are Theory, Phase 1 (finding offers and keywords), Phase 2 (building a site and making initial sales) and Phase 3 (growing the site to maximize profits). I'll describe what the course looks like now (about a 10 days before launch). I don't expect it to change much in the next several weeks.
Forever Affiliate Theory (3 videos):
The theory section is the shortest section, but maybe the most valuable. In the theory section, Andrew explains why you can still make make with affiliate marketing in 2013, and what will be covered in the Forever Affiliate course. At the time of this writing, the theory section consists of meaty videos about the course and why it's laid out the way it is. This section basically serves as a roadmap for the course. It's incredibly motivating to know why you are doing what you are doing, and I consider this section of the course to be just what is needed.
Forever Affiliate Phase 1 (15 videos):
Phase 1 tackles two of the most critical topics in Affiliate Marketing — finding offers and deciding if they are worth going after. The latter topic is what Andrew calls The Analysis Funnel. Basically Andrew reveals his method for determining whether or not a niche is profitable. Of course, the other half of this section is all about how to find offers to put them into the analysis funnel. So in phase 1, you learn how to find offers and decide whether or not you should promote them. Andrew takes you step-by-step through his proven system using examples and video from actual analysis that he does live for the course. It's pretty cool.
Forever Affiliate Phase 2 (20 videos):
One of the things that I really love about this course is Andrew's approach to testing offers. The basic idea is that even offers that make it through the analysis funnel might not convert for some reason. The funnel is great, but you never know absolutely for sure that you have a winner until you test it. It's common sense really, but it's one of the places a lot of affiliates get really messed up. They spend tons of time, effort, and money, on a site that never makes a sale.
Andrew's recommendation is to test offers on small mini sites with the minimum amount of promotion to get a sense of whether or not your keywords can be one, and your offers will convert. Offers that pass this hurdle are ready for full buildout of the site to maximize earnings in phase 3. Of course Andrew goes through all of the details needed to register a domain, build a website, get content, etc. It's all covered in the 20-video Phase 2 series .
Forever Affiliate Phase 3 (10 videos):
Phase 3 is all about promoting the site that you've proven is a winner in phase 2. That means that phase 3 is all about promotion and really search engine optimization. Everything that you need to know to promote your site is in this section. And the really cool thing is that all of the information is written for post panda and post penguin search engine optimization.
The Forever Affiliate Offer:
When you check out the Forever Affiliate course. you will be shocked at the low price (seriously — I was stunned). Can't quote the price here yet as the site is not live. Note that there is an up-sell on the back end for private coaching that is more expensive than the course itself but very attractive if you want to get personal help from Andrew.
The bottom line:
I give this course a strong recommend — and I will be recommending it even more strongly when I finish watching each and every of the 55 videos. So far, they are awesome.
