My first serious attempt at Internet Marketing came with the purchase of Mark Lings Affiloblueprint training course which I found to be most helpful to a budding newbie which is what it was designed for and I still highly recommend it but it’s difficult to ascertain who Mark is aiming at with his new AffiloJetpack.
Marks been around for quite a while and is highly regarded and respected within the internet marketing industry for the no BS no hype manner in which he teaches affiliate marketing to his students and has always been known to over provide with his previous products which include (AffiloBlueprint already mentioned) and his Affilorama Premium ( For the more advanced.) Both of which are still drawing new members and providing updated tips to existing ones. The forums associated with these are also an excellent source of information and AffilioJtpack is no exception.
However. I’m a bit confused about AffiloJetpack in that in my first take it seemed to be targeting the total newbies but on digging a little deeper it also seems to be pressing the hot keys of the more experienced affiliate marketers.
For the complete newbie it addresses quite a few barriers faced by the totally new to Affiliate Marketing, by smashing down those barriers which stand between failure and success for the average Joe Newbie.
I agree with what he says in identifying what is for many the first hurdle in trying to decide on a niche to target. I know from my own experience and from watching other newbies deliberate for weeks or months in trying to determine which way to go with so many niches available.
Ten Selectively chosen Niches in AffiloJetpack
AffiloJetpack has overcome this with TEN hand picked niches which have already been proved successful by Mark Ling himself who has already made money from them through his promotions which really takes a load off the newbies shoulders. How many times I’ve wished for that in the past and even now?
The second barrier he overcomes is the actual building of the web site by creating a unique wordpress theme designed specifically for ease of use even by the most inexperienced web site builder. It includes functionality which only extremely experienced web site builders would think of. It also includes Mark’s personal squeeze page builder which allows you and teaches you, how to put together squeeze page layouts within your own promotional niche.
The AffiloJetpack theme also reflects Mark’s extensive experience in teaching inexperienced affiliates by including media and image uploaders and thereby eliminating the need to learn FTP programs in order to upload header and back ground images in order to get them online.
This AffiloJetpack theme is absolutely perfect for the raw recruit and Mark has also included free hosting for the first year. While many claim that installing wordpress and a good theme is easy……it does require a number of steps which need to be taken perfectly and any one of these steps taken even slightly of course will render the whole thing useless and cause unnecessary confusion and frustration where it could have been achieved with just one click of the mouse button.
Mark also includes the content comprising 20 pre-written top quality articles per each of the ten niches which can be just plugged into your site or re-written for complete SEO advantage.
All above is pretty well a kit website you can use for your own design and feel and includes all you need to build a high quality professional looking website without having to go through the tedious learning curve most others have had to negotiate in the past but….that’s just the beginning of what Mark is offering.
Also included is an 80 part auto-responder series which can be used with services such as Aweber or any of the Auto responder services available. Use these to gather email addresses in order to form a relationship with your visitors and create a mailing list!
The phrase “The Money is in The List” has been bantered around the internet for quite a long time and with good reason. This is the thing which earns all very successful Internet Marketers the most revenue and Mark himself has said on numerous occasions that he finds it disappointing when his students don’t add an auto responder to their web sites.
When I first started out I was guilty of doing just that. I just wanted to get a site up and running and making money. I didn’t want to put more money up in building a follow up series until the first one started bringing in money. However I’ve since learned that not only does an auto-responder help in building relationships with your visitors but it also adds credibility to a site and many tutors and successful affiliates will swear that it’s even more important than having affiliate products on your site.
The autoresponder series within AffiloJetpack consists of about 65 very informative emails and around 15 hard sell letters written by Mark himself and are of exceptionally high quality. I was even tempted to put them right here on my website along with some affiliate products.
Mark even tells you the best time and frequency in which to send them. From personal experience I’ve learned that sending auto responder emails out only once per week to new subscribers for the first couple of months, just doesn’t work. People are craving for information and follow up information and they want it now! If they don’t get it from you, they’ll go elsewhere and you will lose them.
Another advantage to this is that once people become regular visitors to your site, you can then promote other affiliate products to them and watch the commissions roll in.
The other thing that made me consider that this is not just for newbies, is that in Mark’s opinion, while SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is low risk in that besides the tactics involved it’s free, is that the bigger risk that newbies face is that results will be slow in coming and just give up.
As a result of this way of thinking as another part of AffiloJetpack, he’s offering to provide further training on a wide variety of methods used to generate traffic. While SEO can certainly be used it does take time for the search engines to index your site and then for them to recognize yours as an authority site. Google for one is now viewing sites considered to be authority sites with more favor but as I said it takes time and Mark is saying that for faster results other traffic generating methods should be considered.
So…my final verdict? AffiloJetpack is ideal for those new to the game or for those who haven’t been able to get over the techie hurdles of building a web site. The whole concept makes it amusingly easy compared to all the weeks and months of frustration and learning it takes many newbies to learn how to put a viable and successful affiliate site together on their own
The more experienced affiliates will see the undeniable value in the vast amount of quality content included. In doing a bit of research I found that even to put one of the series of newsletters included together, would cost more than double the complete asking asking price of the entire product. And remember that there are 10 niches to chose five from each with it’s own individual newsletter series. From a budget point of view…that’s exceptionally good value.
