The 2 Best Affiliate Marketing Training Courses That You Should Join In 2019

The 2 Best Affiliate Marketing Training Courses That You Should Join In 2019

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is constantly changing and so a course which hasn’t been updated for a year or even more will most probably contain out of date information and practices.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

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.

2 • Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate Logo

Wealthy Affiliate is an affiliate marketing training community/platform (not a course) which has been founded by Kyle and Carson and it has been teaching people how to create successful affiliate marketing businesses since 2005.

Truthfully, Wealthy Affiliate has got the whole package

  • Hundreds of hours of high-quality, step-by-step video training
  • Useful tools such as website builder, keyword research tool, dedicated tech support, website manager, and a give and take comment function among others
  • An extremely active community consisted of almost 1 million members with a live chat to instantly connect with any of them
  • Tons of real-life success stories
  • AND it’s free to join (of course, as a free member you get limited access to most of the platform’s features)

In addition to everything else, there’s a live webinar every single Friday held by Jay, Wealthy Affiliate’s training chief, on several subjects such as

  • keyword research
  • Google Analytics
  • improving your writing efficiency
  • SEO strategies
  • Scaling your business
  • Converting visitors to customers
  • etc

As a Wealthy Affiliate member, you can also watch all the previous live webinars back from 2012.

On top of that, dozens of training modules are being created daily by other more advanced members as well.

Moreover, Wealthy Affiliate’s main training is constantly being updated and improved in order to keep us up with the latest techniques and practices. The platform itself is also constantly changing. Only within 2018, some major updates and additions took place in order to ensure the best user experience for us such as

  • an entire platform redesign
  • mobile responsiveness so you can work better from your mobile phone or tablet
  • Free SSL and accelerated website loading speeds for all websites
  • a very important update on the give and take comment system

I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for more than 2 years now and I have never thought of leaving it due to how easier it has made my affiliate marketing journey.

I will be creating a 2019 Wealthy Affiliate review shortly so stay tuned.

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.

  1. Greetings, Xaric and thanks for this post.  This is the first time I have ever heard about “Project 24” and I have to say that it sounds interesting and might be something worth looking at further. The fact that they have a laid out plan and what results one can expect IF they follow it, also makes it sound more plausible and legit. 

    I would definitely check this out if I wasn’t already a member at WA for the simple reason I can’t afford the extra cost.  

    The one thing that I didn’t see you cover was whether or not there was a money back guarantee.  Did you cover that and I just missed it? I re-read your post and I don’t recall seeing it.

    As for your #2?  I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for three + years and it’s a great program.  Everything one needs to learn to be a successful Affiliate marketer is available on this platform.  I would disagree that you said it’s not a course.  I think it is a course but it’s different in the extras that it offers.  

    I have to agree with you on this one point, however.  It doesn’t matter which training program/course one takes part in.  If one is not willing to knuckle down and follow the plan their success will NOT BE.  Pure and simple, taking action is the key.

    Thanks again and all the best,


    1. I totally understand about the extra cost… To answer your question, Project 24 does not offer a money back guarantee. You can read more about this query of yours in my Project 24 review.

      Thank you for sharing your Wealthy Affiliate experience with us. It’s always great to hear from other members. And yes, at the end of the day, each individual’s success is up to each individual themselves. The training is just a compass, it’s up to you to follow it correctly.


  2. I like the structure of these two training courses.

    This is the first time I am hearing about Project 24. 

    First thing I like about it is it is legit.

    I will take your words for the Project 24 organization. It seems to be a top tier organization. Most importantly I like its SEO driven content generation. It is worth to go through the webinars and youtube to learn more. 

    No free trial and 500 dollars initial investment without having a real glimpse are the ones what keeps me away. 

    One thing of particular mention for Project 24-because your domain and hosting is outside, you can leave without losing anything. 

    Obviously being at WA, I am spoiled with the free trial. 

    WA  offers a vibrant community, awesome training forum with live chat, the weekly invaluable webinar by Jay Neil and excellent hosting platform. You can buy your domain with a fixed price. 

    I joined it because it was free and loved the 30 sec built of the website in front of my eyes. I like it so far.  It offers everything you need for Affiliate marketing at a substantially reduced price compared to the rest of the industry.

    It is all about how smart and how hard you could work. That is the key to success. 

    1. Thank you for taking the time to read this and comment this mini Wealthy Affiliate review 🙂
      It’s always nice to hear the opinion of other people who have used a product in order to know what we are purchasing before we actually purchase.

      Income School’s Youtube channel is definitely worth a look. Tons of value there. and you actually get a glimpse of what is being taught in Project 24 as well. You could say that Project’s 24 free trial is their Youtube channel.

      My regards, 



  3. This is a big favor you’re doing to us who are getting into affiliate marketing. Thank you for making such a wonderful post. 

    Bloggers do find success in affiliate marketing by monetizing their content. And what’s a better way to start it than signing up for free at Wealthy Affiliate! It’s way better than the first one you’ve mentioned which doesn’t even offer, the least, a trial period. 

    Thank you, Xaric!

    1. I agree with you…

      Truth is that if I hadn’t found Wealthy Affiliate which let me test drive this whole affiliate marketing thing for free, chances are that I wouldn’t be here now.


  4. Never heard of Project 24 so this was very interesting to me. It sounds like a good program. It seems a little expensive and I don’t know how many people want to wait a full 24 months to be making a full time income. I guess it takes about that much time in most cases anyway.

    Do they guarantee you will be making that kind of money in 24 months?

    I know Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t guarantee that, because it just isn’t a sure thing unless you are willing to follow the step by step programs in your article.

    I have spent a lot of money on another program that is really expensive and I just couldn’t afford all the upsells.

    Does Project 24 have other upsells besides the yearly membership for the 60 lessons?

    Thanks for this useful and informative post.

    1. Hi Curtis,

      Project 24 is kind of pricey to be truthful, but you gain full access to it for an entire year. And to be more exact, you don’t just get the 60 lessons with your membership but access to a private active forum, tons of videos, podcasts, mini-courses, etc which are updated all the time.

      Project 24 has no upsells at all. You just pay for your yearly membership and that’s it.

      No one can guarantee anything in this life. 24 months to a full-time income is just an estimation. For some people, it will take less time, for others longer, and for some others, it’s not going to ever happen.

      It’s undeniable that you can’t wait to reach this goal if you are slacking off, skipping lessons, or not applying everything you learn. you can read more about this subject by reading my article How Long Does It Take To Become A Full-Time Affiliate Marketer?

      And be careful not to go in affiliate marketing with high expectations… Chances are that it will take months of hard and consistent work until you even start seeing any results. So no, two years is not that long. I know people, including me, who have been working on their affiliate marketing businesses for more than 2 years and still aren’t making a full-time income through it.

      Hope this helps,


  5. Thanks for letting us know about the 2 best affiliate marketing courses. Personally, now I can testify that Wealthy Affiliate is good since I’m a member and that if you buy it you will definitely learn how to build a real affiliate marketing business.

    However I’ve not heard of Project 24 before, but it sounds like another great platform.

    I’m your opinion what is the main difference between these two, and if you had a choice which one would you pick if it could only be 1?

    1. That’s a great question, Michael.

      If I had to choose just one difference between Wealthy Affiliate and Project 24, I would say that Wealthy Affiliate has been around for way longer and thus they are more experienced and qualified to help people, beginners or not, grow their affiliate business. That doesn’t mean that Project 24 is low quality or whatnot, but I would trust Wealthy Affiliate more.

      If I was an absolute beginner to affiliate marketing, I would go for Wealthy Affiliate solely based on the fact that you can join and start your first business completely for free and this way you lose nothing but a few hours of your time if you decide that affiliate marketing is not something that you are interested in after all.

      Hope this helps you out 🙂


  6. Great article and excellent writeup you got here! I really agreed with you that the best affiliate marketing programs are the ones which come with training and other ways to improve the marketers. Since I am on Wealthy Affiliate I think I’m gonna try out Project 24 based on your review about it. Thanks for sharing these. Keep up the good work. 

    1. Glad to be of help Fasuan.

      Let me know how it goes with Project 24 when you’ve given it a try yourself.


  7. Thanks for sharing with us your 2 best affiliate marketing courses for 2019. Thanks for highlighting what someone should look for in an affiliates program, I agree 100 percent with you. Though I have heard of both Project24 and Wealthy Affiliate, I decided to opt it for Wealthy Affiliate for some reasons, that includes low cost, and free trials which Project 24 is not offering. Both programs look similar in terms of their training package. Please don’t get me wrong, both programs are okay, but based on personal preference and circumstances I decide to join WA.

    1. It’s okay man, I am not judging you 😛

      Wealthy Affiliate is indeed pretty awesome, offering things that no other platforms are offering, at least not high-quality ones.

      I have been a Wealthy Affiliate member for more than 2 years now and I have thought of leaving not once. 

      To tell you the truth, Project’s 24 and Wealthy Affiliate’s training are pretty similar in terms of quality and effectiveness but extremely different in terms of methodology.

      Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment 🙂


  8. Hi, Xaric. Thanks for your short and sweet article.

    I have never heard of Project 24 but will for sure go have a look. Looking over the fence I get that point as in the guy standing on the ladders until the light goes on. You never mentioned the cost of project 24. I guess I just have to take a look myself…

    I am in Wealth Affiliate and having a good time learning the ropes, but you are certainly right about putting in the work, its all a learning process and a journey, good luck to all who chose this route. I can’t wait to see some positive income, but you have to take that first step tc

    1. Hi TC,

      I neither mentioned the price of Wealthy Affiliate 😛 If you want to find out more about Project 24 I have created a full review right here. Since you are a Wealthy Affiliate member I guess you already know its price.

      Good luck with your affiliate marketing journey. Just work it, stick with it, be patient and you’ll get what you want.

      I recently wrote an article about my first $100 if you want to take a look for some motivation and tips.

      My best regards,


  9. Never tried any online marketing platforms before. Having done tons of research I can honestly say that this blog is one of the most concise and  informative without being in your face.

    Good points on all things to do with finding training, guidance and advice on setting up an online business.

    There is so much information out there, some of which sounds highly dubious but this post offers wellinformed narrative and experience of the online marketing business.

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Louise.

      So, have you tried any affiliate marketing courses before? Which one was the best and why?
