How is the class delivered?
The course is text-based. There are no videos involved and no live videos course. If you have any question about what you are reading you can ask them in the Facebook Group and other students or Michelle will answer you. Also, it’s self-paced so you can read quickly as you want. The course doesn’t expire so you can read multiple time each module. I’ve read the course in a night, but I keep going back to some module every time I am asking myself something.
I am not a new blogger and I am not new to the affiliate marketing but I’ve not made any money with it. While I was reading the course, I’ve found myself knowing some of the strategies but I never used them since they were not well conceived as the one in the course. While you are reading it, you get some idea on how you can implement it on your blog. Also, Michelle put a lot of focus on the integrity of you the blogger, so you will not find yourself promoting stuff that you would not use. This was an important thing to me when I was reading the course.
I’m writing this review a week after buying the course so I don’t have any number to show if the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing is really working but I have this feeling that I needed it to show me the ways of how using an affiliate to make money. I will update this review when I will have some result.
These bonuses are really great and I think Michelle could sell them as an option to the course and I will still recommend them to you. The facebook group is wonderful and you can get help from any blogger in it without being treated like an idiot. Two days after using the Pinterest strategy found in the course, I’ve double my Pinterest follower and I’ve got multiple clicks on my pins.
Is it worth the money?
First, of the question, I had before buying the course was if it worth the money? I’ve chosen to buy the course after two weeks without having a precise idea if it could help me. I can say that Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing worth every dime you put in it. The author, Michelle, made more than $50,000 in affiliate marketing with the tips and strategy you will learn. You can find some of this info on google but you will never get them as structured as this course. Also, time is money. You will lose a lot of time to find the information on google. You could use this time to implement the strategy you’ve learned in class and make money faster.
What are the cons?
I’ve read it in a night so it could be longer but you have all the information well concise
If you like to learn with video this course is not made for you. Else I think every blogger could use the course to perfect their affiliate skills even if they are already making money with their blog.
In final, I am very pleased with the course format and the strategy that I’ve learned. Also, at this price, I continually learn new things throw the Facebook Group of the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing. It so easy to read that a new blogger would learn how to start well his blog and an old blogger will learn how to make more money with affiliate marketing.
