Here's my Affiliate Blogger Pro review…
At first glance, WordPress seems a beautifully designed, wonderfully simple to use little tool.
It ought to be easy to create a blog with WordPress and earn money from it. Right?
The problem is that once you start using WordPress, you keep finding out there's one little thing you need to know, then another little thing, and another…
Where do you go for help?
You might start with the WordPress.org website. However, if you try that – and if your brain is anything like mine – you're quickly getting a headache. You hunt around for explanations and at WordPress.org come across sentences like this…
“A Transient is temporal data identified by a custom name,
stored in the web server database or memory for fast access.
This temporal nature and use of fast memory caching…”
What's THAT got to do with blogging and earning a living online?
You don't want to laboriously hunt through a website written by technicians. You want simple, clear instructions presented by a successful, professional blogger.
What you need is a real expert. Someone who's been there, done that, someone who is capable of understanding exactly what YOU need to know, AND is able to put it all in simple language.
You want screenshots and short videos, too, all in a logical, step-by-step order.
You also want step-by-step instructions on how to earn money from your blog: How to choose a profitable niche, how to design an effective website, how to attract visitors, various ways to make sales, and so on.
And that's exactly what you get from super affiliate Rosalind Gardner's Affiliate Blogger Pro (which is also known as Rosalind Gardner's Academy).
Rosalind is one of the most respected figures in affiliate marketing.
As you may already know, she's a real-life veteran affiliate. Back in 2002, she generated $436,797 US (much more now) in affiliate commissions.
Her Super Affiliate Handbook is very popular and widely recommended.
You could think of her Affiliate Blogger Pro is her handbook on steroids.
There's much to like in the Rosalind's “Academy”. Perhaps the best aspect is how she has beautifully organized all her coaching material. It's all in sensible, logical order, so whatever you need to know is easily found.
10 Basic Steps
Ros has divided what you need to know into 10 basic steps. Click on any of the links in the 10 steps, and you'll see how nicely organized the instructions are.
For example, here's a look at the Step 2 instructions, “Find Your Niche”…
Ros's Academy is a step-by-step guide to affiliate blogging, with 225+ tutorials and 190+ short videos, so you can watch and see exactly what to do next.
Rosalind doesn't waste your time. Many of the videos are only about 2 to 4 minutes long. For example, “The Easiest Way to Create a Contact Page” is only 2 minutes and 34 seconds.
One of the longer videos is “Anatomy of an Affiliate Blog”, a 10-minute, must-watch video in which Rosalind guides you through one of her successful blogs, explaining why it's successful and why it's designed the way it is. You get a first-hand review of a successful blog, which explains why it is successful and shows you how it makes money.
Affiliate Blogger Pro also shows you some of Ros's other successful blogs.
The tutorials and videos are updated as the Internet changes. For example, I spotted a video on Google's new Keyword Planner.
Here's a look at a list of some of the instructional videos. These ones are fvery helpful for anyone who, uses the Genesis WordPress theme. (Genesis is an excellent option for anyone wanting to build a beautifully designed blog. Like Ros, I recommend it.)
These instructional videos make things much easier for anyone who uses the Genesis theme.
Need extra help?
Support comes in various forms…
There's a forum where you can get answers to your questions from Rosalind and other successful affiliates.
You also get personal support from Rosalind and technical support via email from the Affiliate Blogger Pro team.
You can also request a review of your blog.
Not that you'll need it, but there's a no-risk, money-back guarantee.
Who's Affiliate Blogger Pro For?
Rosalind's Affiliate Blogger Pro doesn't assume you already know anything about either WordPress or earning money from affiliate marketing, so it seems to be aimed at newcomers.
Because it's so methodically organized, with hundreds of tutorials, screenshots and very short videos, it will also suit affiliates who need a well planned resource – a place to go to find out the things they haven't learned yet.
