Over Easter, I had an incredibly business-savvy friend come to stay with me. Given the wet, stay-indoors weather we had a lot of interesting chats over a cuppa.
I say interesting because he’d entered numerous and completely diverse markets and been successful in each one. I can’t say he had a particular skill for any of the avenues he’d explored, but this didn’t seem to hinder him one bit.
In trying to discover what his “secret of success” was, it became obvious that he had a common process. A formula which he applied to every venture he went into and it produced results. Great ones.
After all, if you’ve found out what works for you, wouldn’t you repeat that formula again and again to keep the money coming?
The best thing was that because of the diversity of his businesses, he’d barely been affected by the global financial crisis. If anything, business had improved!
In a lot of ways he’s very similar to Mark Ling, a Super Affiliate who earns over $1 million a year from a diversity of affiliate sites. He uses the same blueprint to create each site, then leaves it to earn money on the back burner, while he’s off repeating the process with the next one.
Given the current financial times, diversifying and having your eggs in a few baskets at the moment is a wise strategy don’t you think?
You may already know Mark Ling from a top affiliate marketing education site – Affilorama. Last year he actually made a live recording of himself building an affiliate marketing site. To top it off, it was in a niche he knew nothing about.
So in front of a live audience, he researched the niche, then created a site which started out earning $500 a week. You can bet that audience learned a thing or two!
Mark’s formula became the first release of AffiloBlueprint that was launched late last year and was one of the most complete systems for creating long-lasting income through affiliate sites. This was partly because he recorded everything from woe to go, and addressed his audience’s questions which were very typical of affiliate marketers starting out.
AffiloBlueprint has been updated for 2009 with an improved format and more in-depth lessons. Rather than a live recording, the lessons have had a ton of content added and streamlined so they are easier to follow.
I’ve been able to have an extensive look inside AffiloBlueprint, so you can take a look as well and see what all the fuss is about.
What AffiloBlueprint will teach you
Quite simply, AffiloBlueprint will take you through building your own profitable affiliate website. Then you’ll learn how to monetize it and repeat the process to create long-term income for you and your family.
If you’ve put off starting because you don’t know what product to market, then don’t worry. You’ll first learn how to choose a good niche so the course will get you off the ground to start off with.

Because AffiloBlueprint is a proven success model, you can then “rinse and repeat” on other niches you find.
After that, you’ll be learning how to make money from your site, so you’ll be skilled up in:
- How to get content for your site
- How to get your site up and running
- How to optimize your site to rank well in search engines
- How to use pay per click marketing to ramp up your revenue without burning through your cash
- How to create a profitable newsletter series (Mark has over 1.5m people on his email list so he’s got extensive expertise)
- How to market through social media
- How to track and use web analytics to measure your progress and know how to tweak your sites

So you won’t just be sitting in front of a computer doing the course training. You won’t get away that easy!
You’ll be following along with this course and building your own web site as you go. Support is also there for you every step of the way. It definitely beats doing it on your own without any hand holding.
Because it’s so practical, by the end of AffiloBlueprint, you won’t be sitting there wondering how to go about doing the training you received. You should already have your own affiliate site up and running.
Is AffiloBlueprint right for you?
AffiloBlueprint is not for everyone, but there are a few levels of knowledge that AffiloBlueprint would suit.
Because there’s no assumed knowledge, it’s especially good for starting affiliate marketers who want a step-by-step “how to” guide. It’s novice-friendly with a logical training structure to follow – and I do mean follow because you’ll be doing it along with the course.
If you’re already a successful affiliate marketer, then AffiloBlueprint can give you a proven, repeatable system. What you should expect to learn is how to better structure your sites to create sustainable growth and become even more successful.
Below you can check out what’s inside the course to see how AffiloBlueprint might benefit you.
Inside the AffiloBlueprint course
The format of the course is very visual with 55 video lessons. It’s smartly structured into a 12 week program with task-driven modules that build onto each other. Doing it this way gives you a satisfying feeling of progression as you build your own website and business.
With every module, you can watch and/or download the video and you’ll also have a downloadable pdf so you can print this and keep it handy while you are actually doing everything.

Advanced Covert Strategies Videos
Here’s a look inside week 8, which teaches you link building strategies and how to use social media to your advantage.
AffiloBlueprint course module for week 8 on link building.
Two modules that are outstanding are Covert Affiliate Strategies and Troubleshooting.
The Covert Affiliate Strategies videos are a powerful collection for intermediate to advanced affiliates so you can scale your earnings to the next level. Of course, if you’re starting off with AffiloBlueprint, then these videos will help you take your business even further after the initial stages.
Now have you ever followed instructions to the letter, but still found things are just not working? This time around, AffiloBlueprint has a troubleshooting lesson to help you get back on track. It’s a fast way to zero in on the troublemakers and learn how you can fix site problems. Again this is repeatable and can be applied to more than just the site you’ll be starting with.
AffiloBlueprint value for your money
Out of curiosity, I looked at the course outline from the previous release – 15 more modules and bonuses had been added to the original modules.
I find it truly impressive that so much was added to the course after it was already sold!
From everyone I’ve heard from, the customer support was fantastic and they genuinely cared about your personal success.
So hats off to Mark and the Affilorama team for lifting the game here as well. It certainly distinguishes AffiloBlueprint even further. As far as total value given to members, Mark certainly overdelivers!
As well as the AffiloBlueprint course support, you can also get help through the Affilorama Members Forum. Share ideas or problems with the people going through the course with you, or even borrow experience from a member of the first release!

The affiliate tools that were such a hit in the first one are back for the second round:

AffiloBlueprint’s window of opportunity
I know that some people can view the limited availability of offers as gimmicky. However, the ability to properly support members is a key consideration when providing these courses. If you take on too many students and can’t support their needs, how successful is it?
Mark’s success with AffiloBlueprint is largely dependent on his student’s success. You’re all in it together. So he is only taking on a limited amount of students that are committed to making a sustainable income online and could use some practical help.
This time around, Mark has opened the AffiloBlueprint course for a full 7 days from Tuesday 28th April 6pm EST . I think he’s trying to avoid the server problems they had last time when it was open for only 5 days
So don’t leave it till the last minute. If AffiloBlueprint looks like it’s worth the $197 price tag (the bonuses below are worth several times this), then grab it already and you can get a headstart on your own internet business.
The strategy that Mark lays out is one of the best and most comprehensive guides on how you can set up a few affiliate sites, and then reinvest your money to grow the reach and profitability of those sites.
I highly recommend you check out Mark’s video to see how you could follow a similar strategy to create a portfolio of highly successful affiliate sites that you can grow into your primary source of income.
