THE $277/day QUICK START FORMULA
In this section Mike gives you actionable steps that you can follow to repeat his success. There’s no theory here: Just a REAL blueprint that will get you from zero to hero!
There’s no doubt that the method and systems that Mike uses work. And thats what I find refreshing about this course is that Mike doesn’t shy away from the ‘W’ word. Mike courses teaches newbies and intermediates alike he most straight forward way to provide value and be paid accordingly. There are no push buttons or magic pills here. But by leveraging video and blog posts and listbuilding you can gradually build a profitable six figure building.
This course is aimed at beginners but even intermediates will get value out of it. I enjoyed Mike’s concise videos that were very much to the point. The pacing of the course means that it would be hard to be overwhelmed or overloaded. You could easily go through the whole course in under 2 hours and implement it in 3.
But I also feel that the conciseness occasionally sacrifices details. Mike talks about important points such as your ‘Home Base’ aka Blog and Listbuilding but apart from a link to hosting and Aweber there is no further instruction about how to set these parts up. For an absolute newbie looking for step-by-step instructions about exactly how to set these crucial elements up then it would be real roadblock for them. Having said that, Mike goes into all the necessary details in his further upsells:
For $17 Affiliate Income Secrets is an absolute bargain that is worth your time and money investing in. Its an excellent mix of concise fundamentals and actionable steps. Mike lays out the real formula for making a living as an affiliate marker. However to truly get the most out of it you may need to purchase one or two of his up-sells. This isn’t a deal breaker as they are very high quality content.
- 12 Concise, clear and informative videos
- Actionable content – clearly laid out step by step plan
- Authentic and ‘real’ way to make money
- Absolutely newbies will wish there was a ‘Aweber cheat sheet’

I give Affiliate Income Secrets 8/10 – A recommended purchase that passes the Pich Test!
