At $2.95, this WSO seems like a bargain. It promises to teach you everything you need to know to start making money online in the affiliate marketing niche.
The ‘How to Make Money Online With Affiliate Marketing’ Pitch

- Digital products

It seems like a lot of topics are covered, however, all of the content is VERY basic. Consider it a super-newbie guide to getting started online.
Unfortunately, the author of How to Make Money Online With Affiliate Marketing breaks one of the cardinal rules of writing: “show, don’t tell.” In other words, he describes every step in a very broad overview. This is not really a true step-by-step guide that shows you how to go through the process of becoming an affiliate marketer.
The WSO is 43 pages long. It is ALL text. There are no screenshots or illustrations, just paragraphs of text. It is formatted nicely and the writing is professional. The copyright notice is from 2014, so is this product really 3 years old? From the design and the content, it certainly seems that is the case. The affiliate marketing world changes so rapidly that even content that is 6 months old can be out of date.
Again, the content is written for someone who is completely new to affiliate marketing. If you have any experience at all, this guide may be too basic for you and you may not get much out of it.
Purchase or Pass?
Hard to say. At $2.95, the price seems right. However, even at that price, you are getting very basic and outdated information. Really this WSO should be turned into a basic blog about affiliate marketing and given away for free. None of the content is unique – all of it can be readily found online with just a little googling.
