Affilo theme

This is according to owners the fastest and easiest way to build a profitable business. This tool supposedly will help you maximize profit, wow visitors, impress google and build your list fast. It cost a one time fee of $ 97.

Affilo jetpack

This product is suppose to earn you money on auto-pilot. According to affilorama, this product is your short cut to success especially via email marketing. This product is suppose to give you the blue print of email marketing that succeeds all the time for 18 highly profitable niches.

This product cost $ 997. Mark Ling is very sure this package will make you money so he offers a 60 day money guarantee and an extra $ 100 if you do not like it.

Affiliate program

This program is free to join and the commission is generous. You get 50% commission for any person your refer that buys any of their products.

My take on Affilorama

Affilorama is a legitimate program that teaches its members in easily understandable ways, how to run an affiliate business. It has a ton of lessons for members of all stages of growth in affiliate marketing. So, it is good for beginners, intermediates and experts alike.

It has a huge community of affiliate marketers and the owners are well respected entrepreneurs.  Affilorama however has so many products that can be very confusing to beginners. More so, these additional products are on the expensive side.

Affilorama has a great customer service that can help members with their concerns. The community is also very helpful if you have any questions. It is however, very difficult to contact the owners Mark and Simon for help. They can drop by occasionally and contribute to the forums but you can expect to get any prompt help from them directly.

I will recommend affilorama for its wealth of lessons and for the fact that they are legitimate. I however will recommend wealthy affiliate over affilorama because they have one package that covers everything with no upsells, unlike affilorama that has many confusing and overlapping packages.

Recommendation and conclusion

Do not take it from me; if you are really serious about affiliate marketing, then join the free membership of both programs and decided for yourself after you have had time to study the sites.

Both programs are amazing and have well respected entrepreneurs as owners. As a matter of fact, many online marketers join both programs and then choose one to go premium with.

I hope this review was helpful. Constructive criticism is welcomed. If you are a member of affilorama, leave a comment and tell us what you think.

Cheers Denise

  1. I don’t think that affilorama is a scam either.
    From what I know the man standing behind the website is highly respected in the marketing network, yet he doesn’t run his website himself but rather lets other people do that for him.
    Quite frankly, it shows. In Wealthy affiliate the founders are always there, it’s actually a huge difference.

    1. So true Vlad,

      I like that I can reach Kyle and Carson directly with my problems. I even get emails from Kyle checking to see my progress. You don’t get this king of royalty treatment at affilorama. They offer good lessons and have a great community just like at WA but very little interaction from Mr. Ling .
