Affiliate Marketing Revolution, will this course help me make a sustainable long-term income that I can quit my 9 to 5 job with?
Will it help me make me my 6 figure income online?
Is affiliate marketing the best online business opportunity for me?
I plan on diving into all of that for you, after going through his course.
Why should you listen to me?
I’m someone that came from nothing to building a multiple 6 figures local marketing business.
I work from home & these days have the time & freedom to study & look into starting other businesses like affiliate marketing, e-commerce, etc.
This past year I decided to really figure out what this affiliate marketing shit was all about.
I studied few courses out there.
Luca’s course was one of them.
Let me give you the insider tip.
But first, for those of you that don’t know…
What’s so awesome about affiliate marketing?
These are some of the top reasons why someone might go into affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is basically selling other people’s products for a commission.
- The ease of not having to sell your own products – no need to create a product, manufacturer, handle customer service, shipping, etc
- Online tracking makes everything seamless – thanks to technology, using tracking url & cookies, you know you’ll get credit for the sale & get paid automatically because good ‘ol technology handles everything on point.
- you can virtually find affiliate programs for every type of product/service out there. don’t believe me? just google “What your niche is” + “affiliate program” or not to mention on amazon.com or clickbank.com you can find just about everything.
- Low barrier of entry – Anyone can start promoting affiliate offers TODAY
- Scalability – unlike real stores that are burdened with customer order fulfillment, an affiliate can sell huge volumes in multiple niches & keep scaling further with no concerns as long as he has the means to generate that traffic.
In the right circumstances, an affiliate that has the means to generate tons of traffic to his affiliate links can make a shit ton of money online.
Then they become what is called a Super Affiliate.
I’ll go into what those special circumstances are a little bit later.

My general video of his entire affiliate course?
Its pretty basic in my opinion.
I don’t believe some of his tactics will be that effective in 2018 & moving forward.
Well for example, every year there’s more and more affiliate marketers joining the scene & going after the same niche that you chose.
There’s only so many spots on the first page of youtube search.
There’s only 10 spots on the first page of Google.
That get any kind of clicks/attention.
& you can only make good money with affiliate if you’re able to generate a lot of traffic to your online properties.
Without traffic, I don’t care if you have the greatest article about dog collar, or the great review video of the latest smart phone.
You’re not gonna get sales.
I feel that a lot of times Lucas is explaining to you how to setup part 1 of the affiliate business process, which is setting up your digital properties with the affiliate offers included that will generate cash if you were to get bunch of visitors over there.
But this course could use more advanced skills when it comes to the actual generating of traffic.
Still overall its easy to understand & follow for a beginner to definitely get a taste of some affiliate sales.
I think your best bet is the youtube strategy.
Why I believe the skill to generate FREE Traffic is crucial for anyone trying to make money online.
You might have heard the saying.
Money loves attention.
That’s so true.
Making money online is all about your ability to get attention.
Now I’m not saying you need to become the next Dan Blizerian of Instagram or Gary Vaynerchuck that produces video content on the daily & get thousands of social media followers.
But if you can build websites that rank for keywords in Google, you can build financial freedom because these websites once they are ranked pretty much stay ranked for a long long time.
& the sites will generate income for you month after month.
Instead of the saying, “let money go to work for you.”
I say “let technology go to work for you”
Technology that is the Internet, which never sleeps.
The truth is…
Being able to rank digital properties on the internet & generate FREE traffic has always been the
#1 Business Opportunity of the Internet
I know, a lot of courses these days are teaching about Facebook ads, & there’s nothing wrong with learning that as well, but remember with FB ads you always need a paying client to keep you in business.
Or if you’re spending yourself, then you’re still dependent on Facebook to delivery great traffic & conversions for you to stay profitable.
& IMO facebook traffic is not all that stable, it can be extremely volatile at times.
Sometimes ads just stop working, your ad account gets shut down, random spike in cost per clicks, people aren’t buying for some reason causing the ad spend to eat up all of your profit margins or worse spending more on ad cost than what you’re making.
Its is definitely not an evergreen, predictable & stable source of traffic.
& I’ve made $30,000 in one month running facebook ads to affiliate offers before.
It was pretty cool.
But it was a good month on FB ads for some unknown reason.
The next month, I made far less.
Even though I was doing the same shit.
Also I had to do ongoing maintenance on the ad campaigns that it was hard for me to see a viable way to scale the business.
You see, what I hate most about FB is this.
I’m spending all this time on creating FB ads, tweaking ads, studying data, making new ads, etc on day to day basis
But as soon as I stopped spending money on FB, my FB business goes to zero.
No more traffic.
Why I love building my business around Free Traffic?
Because Free Traffic never sleeps.
My business on Free Traffic keeps running, whether I want it to stop or not.
So you gotta look at the long picture folks.
Yes paid traffic can get you some short term results.
But if you want something sustainable, evergreen & give you time freedom.
You need to master the skills of generating free traffic online.
In the end, it is important to practice the 80/20 rule.
Which is that there’s something you can do that only takes 20% of your time but produces 80% of your results.
Me writing these articles, or building another local lead generation site that will eventually rank, get free traffic & generate income for year to come is my highest leveraged income per hour activity that I could be doing.
It is my $10,000 per hour activity.
The Biggest Challenge that Stumps Most Affiliates?
In the above, I explained why you need to focus on building an online business that runs on free traffic instead of paid traffic.
The problem with affiliate marketing is that the competition is SUPER high when it comes to trying to rank anything in Google or Youtube.
Anyone can create a webpage or youtube video with affiliate links attached to them.
But can you generate big traffic consistently?
This is where most affiliates fail miserably.
In my opinion, you need SEO (Search Engine Optimization) skills way higher than what Lucas is teaching in his Affiliate Marketing Revolution course, unfortunately.
I know because I see these low power affiliate sites all the time, people that spent a lot of time producing tons of in-depth content & not realizing that’s just one part of the equation. As I blow past these sites, sometimes with less actual content but my superior SEO skills allow me to do so.
Now there might still be opportunities in the youtube space for certain niches of affiliate.
But even if you did get some sales through some of your youtube videos, I wouldn’t expect massive results.
There’s simply too much noise on youtube in my opinion.
For every product review video you make, there are 30 other ones doing the same exact thing.
Youtube success is mostly attained through being super unique. Unique enough to cut through all the noise & attain followers. You need charm, personality, great ideas, etc
That’s the real way to success on Youtube anything lesser only produces mediocre results. Nothing you can bank on.
Now all of that is not feasible for everyone out there.
You need to have some unique talent imo.
Way too difficult for most people to pull off, including myself.
How about ranking my own website or blog?
People getting massive results with affiliate marketing have HUGE POWERFUL authoritative blog sites or review sites that have been around for years and they’re dominating the page 1 of Google, promoting all kinds of product or service-based affiliate programs.
Its very hard for a beginner to build anything even remotely close to being able to compete with these sites, even with seriously advanced SEO training.
Let a lone, Lucas’s SEO training which there is very little.
The difficulty level, time commitment & money required into being able to compete with most affiliate sites out there, is pretty much way too high for most beginners.
This is why I ultimately don’t recommend affiliate marketing to a beginner.
Look, if you’re a newbie to making money online, most likely you still have a daytime job, with limited expendable cash every month.
Therefore, time & money is not on your side.
You need something that you can work on part-time, couple hours per day & still be able to make consistent progress that builds on top of each other.
You can do this with local marketing using free traffic. The best opportunity imo.
Its essentially the best of both worlds.
- 10x easier competition than affiliate because now you’re only competing with like 10-20 local companies for the page 1 spot instead of 200,000 affiliate markteters
- Business built on free traffic – you already kno why this is so important #neversleepmoney #leveragedincome
- So many local businesses around the US that need a good lead generation service, so there are massive opportunities everywhere
Lead Generation for local businesses is the exact business I built to kill my 9 to 5.
We’re showing others how to do the same & the success rate is off the charts.
