You’ve been looking for the best affiliate marketing training platform or course for a while now…
You have already read dozens of affiliate marketing training program reviews and instead of getting closer to decide which one to purchase, you become more and more confused and overwhelmed.
I can understand exactly what you are going through and I am here to help.
In my almost 3 years as an affiliate marketer, I have tested many affiliate marketing courses, programs, and platforms, good and bad, and I have singled out the 2 which bring real results and are worth your time and money.
Before I go on and reveal to you those 2 platforms, I would like to first let you know what you should be looking for in similar products, in case none of those 2 platforms cover your needs and you require to continue your research elsewhere.
What You Should be Looking for
First of all, the training has to be high-quality (obviously). I’d recommend not to purchase a static course but rather go for a platform which adds fresh content regularly and updates its old one as well (such platforms are usually membership platforms). Online marketing is constantly changing and so a course which hasn’t been updated for a year or even more will most probably contain out of date information and practices.
Besides the training, it would be a good idea to be looking for a program which offers access to some kind of active community such as a private forum, private Facebook group, live chat, etc to those who purchase it. This way you will be able to exchange words with other people who have purchased the program before you, find out if they have succeeded, how long it took them, ask them for tips and help if you get stuck, etc. Also, connecting with like-minded people who are going through the same shit as you, is going to make your entire journey much easier and maybe even increase your chances of success.
Another thing that plays an important part in making the decision to purchase a training module is my ability to try it for free. There are a lot of crappy affiliate training courses and programs out there and I would rarely purchase one without first getting a small glimpse of what I am getting. To tell you the truth, the only reason that I am here right now is that I found a program that allowed me the option to start my training and build my very first website completely for free (this program is actually included in this list so keep on reading).
In addition, does the program include any useful tools with its purchase? For example, there exist programs which offer keyword research tools, website monitoring tools, 1-click website builders, etc. At the end of the day, the only tools that you are going to need to get started are a hosting plan and a domain name but if you could find a program which offers some more tools which are going to make your life easier, why not go for that?
Lastly, what matters the most to me is the testimonials and success stories of people who have purchased the course. Are there any? Do they look real or made up? Can you contact those people? Can you see their websites? If you can find several real-life testimonials or success stories of people who have used the program before you, then chances are that if you follow it correctly, you might become one of them yourself.
Anyway, now that you know what you should be looking for in an affiliate marketing training course, let’s find out more about the 3 best affiliate marketing courses that you should join in 2019.
The 2 Best Affiliate Marketing Training Courses That You Should Join In 2019
1 • Project 24
Project 24 was created a couple of years ago by Jim and Ricky, owners of incomeschool.com.
Jim and Ricky have been building successful, passive income, niche websites for more than 10 years. Within Project 24, they lay down all they have learned during those years in 60 steps that anyone can easily follow to build a successful niche site of their own in literally any niche.
Project’s 24 training is off the hook. It’s simple to follow, very high-quality, structured, focused, and to-the-point and it mainly consists of video in conjunction with text.
In addition, Project 24 is not a static course but rather a dynamic platform. New content is being added all the time and the main training is constantly being updated with the most up to date techniques and practices.
Also, as a Project 24 member, you gain access to an awesome private, forum-like community whereas members ask questions, share success stories, motivate each other, etc. Ricky and Jim are also pretty active within this community and do their best to answer most of its member’s queries.
Unfortunately, Project 24 doesn’t offer any other tools with its membership but the truth is that their approach to building websites doesn’t require any additional ones besides a domain name and a hosting plan. Even their keyword research is conducted without any keyword research tools but with the help of Google search.
Lastly, in order to become a Project 24 member, you have to pay upfront for a whole year. Jim and Ricky don’t offer any free trial or money back guarantees. However, if you want to get a glimpse inside Project 24 before investing your money in it, you could check out income school’s Youtube channel. The information that they share within their channel is basically a reflection of what they teach within Project 24.
If you want to find out more about Project 24, go ahead and take a look at Project 24 by Income School Review (2019): 60 Steps To Full-Time Blogging in Just 24 Months, head off to its official website right here, and also watch the two videos right below.

Before You Purchase
The affiliate marketing training that you are going to finally purchase and follow means nothing if you don’t put the necessary effort and time yourself. There are no programs that will magically bring success to you in one week or one month. There are no shortcuts or magic pills to making money online or basically anywhere.
Sure, following a dedicated training is going to make your life easier… It will save you tons of time and effort that you would otherwise spend guessing, experimenting and failing over and over again until you figure out what works for you and your business but whether you succeed or not depends on you how you are going to utilize everything you are being taught.
You can have all the resources of the world but if you don’t put everything together as you are supposed to, you’ll get nowhere further from where you are right now.
An affiliate marketing training will show one of the many ways to succeed, but it’s ultimately up to you to walk it. Don’t go into affiliate marketing believing that money will start flying into your bank account out of nowhere because they will definitely not.
Be prepared to work your butt off. Even with the most perfect training, there’s no other way around.
Here you are, the 2 best affiliate marketing training platforms according to my own experience of course. I am pretty sure that there could be other equally good programs out there.
In my 2+ years as an affiliate marketer, I have found none. But if you keep looking, you might.
Anyway, if you want, I have created some other reviews right here for you to take a look at. But if I were you, I would probably bookmark this page because chances are that you are going to need to get back to it.
Project 24 and Wealthy Affiliate deliver tremendous value to their members and they are constantly doing their best to further improve. Since they are both membership platforms, they have no other choice because if they stop improving, if they stop catching up with the latest updates, they will lose their customers. So, I wouldn’t expect anything less from them and they both always meet and even exceed my expectations.
