So, you wanna know what ‘Affiliate Bootcamp’ is, and more importantly, HOW it works for helping newbies like you to earn $4,000+ per month in “Passive” income, right?
Well, you’re certainly in the right place, my young Grasshopper!
In this review, I’m gonna show you, not one, but two (YES, 2) very different Affiliate Marketing training platforms that will enable you to create a sustainable money-making business online.
HINT: The 2nd one is Wealthy Affiliate, but SHHH! 😉
Ready to get stuck in and learn how to change your life?
Then listen up, Soldier!!!
Bootcamp #1: ClickFunnels
Name: 100-Day Affiliate Bootcamp.
Cost: 100% Free (Click Here to Join).
Creator: Russell Brunson.
Who is it For?: Newbies to Experts.
My Score: 7/10.
What’s The Idea Behind Russell’s Bootcamp?
Put simply, Mr. Brunson has set you a 100-day challenge – where you give away at least 1 free ClickFunnels (CF) trial per day for the next 100 days, which can lead to a $4K monthly income in affiliate commissions.
(If you’re unfamiliar with Russell’s ‘CF’ product, grab my review here for more info).
And the best part about his challenge is that he gives you heaps of free (no strings attached) step-by-step video training for helping you reach that awesome income level.
On top of those 4-figures per month, Russell will buy you your dream car as a bonus to say “Thanks” for bringing in 100 paid ‘CF’ software users.
Trust me, the guy’s not pulling your leg!
Watch the quick video presentation below to see for yourself:
Not bad, hey?
Please Note: Generating $4K per month isn’t gonna be a walk in the park.
So you must be prepared to roll up your sleeves and implement Russell’s training if you want success online with his program.
How Does ‘100-Day Bootcamp’ Work?
Once you join the free Bootcamp, there are 5 basic steps to do before starting your training.
- Watch The Welcome Video
- Join The Community
- Setup Your Affiliate Account
- Get Your Affiliate Links
- Track Your Affiliate Sales
They are all pretty straightforward steps that also come with quick video tutorials.
When it comes to the meat on the bone, there are 66 training videos that cover topics like choosing your dream customer to building a sales funnel to creating paid Facebook campaigns to email marketing to split testing, and much more.
The videos are divided into 14 sections to make the training easy to follow:
- Lay The Foundation (Day 1- 5)
- Your First Funnel (Day 6 – 10)
- Improving Your Funnel (Day 11 -15)
- Your First Back-End Funnel (Day 16 – 20)
- 2X Your Growth (Day 21 – 25)
- Expanding Your Traffic (Day 26 – 30)
- Hastening The Process (Day 31 – 35)
- FunnelScripts Traffic (Day 36 – 40)
- 108 Split Tests (Day 41 – 45)
- Traffic For 108 Split Tests (Day 46 – 50)
- Funnel University (Day 51 – 55)
- Evolving Your Traffic (Day 56 – 60)
- 14 Day Free Trial (Day 61 – 65)
- Using The 10 Day Formula (Day 66+)
Basically, all the training you get covers different strategies for building a successful online business as an affiliate of Russell Brunson’s.
All Russell requires is that you spend at least 1-hour of your time following his Blueprint for giving away just 1 ‘CF’ 14-day free trial every 24 hours.
What I especially like about the training is that the majority of it is in-depth, so you really get to learn the ins and outs of all the building blocks you need to make money.
Your $ Commissions (KA-CHING) + Free Car!
When you work your socks off, there’s no limit to the size of your commission checks from promoting Russell’s ‘CF’ software.
And because your commissions are gonna be monthly “recurring”, it means your income will increase month-in-month-out, the more free trials you hand out to folks.
You get paid 40% commissions from each person who upgrades to one of the two following plans:
- Starter Plan commissions = $38.80/month
- Enterprise Plan commissions = $118/month
So when you calculate 100 x $38.80, you’re talking a nice fat $3,880 paycheck from Russell every month.
Add a bunch of $118 commissions into the mix and it’s really gonna spice up your income!
* The Dream Car Contest (BONUS) *
Once you reach 100 ‘CF’ sales, Brunson pays you an extra $500 per month to cover the cost of your car payments.
But when you reach 200 sales, he really sweetens the deal by bunging you a cool $1,000 per month for your car costs!
Simply buy a brand spanking new car on finance (from the list of cars on the Ts & Cs page), send Russell the proof, and he’s got you covered.
I dunno about you, but being English, I’d LOVE an Aston Martin! The name’s “Bond, James Bond”. 😉
Wanna Really Turbo-Charge Your Income?
In addition, Russell has created a number of awesome products (which he also shows you how to promote alongside ‘CF’) that can really beef up your affiliate earnings.
I consider these as “income toppers”:
- 108 Proven Split Test Winners (View Product) – Earn up to $197.60/sale
- DotCom Secrets book (View Product) = up to $967/sale
- Expert Secrets book (View Product) = up to $927/sale
- Funnel Graffiti (View Product) = $26.80/monthly + $118.80/sale
- Marketing In Your Car (View Product) = up to $138.60/sale
- The Perfect Webinar (View Product) = up to $137.60/sale
- The Funnel Hacker’s Cookbook (View Product) = up to $933.40/sale
- Funnel University (View Product) = $26.80/monthly OR $237.60/sale + $118.80/sale
- 10X Secrets Masterclass (View Product) = up to $475.20/sale
- Funnel Scripts = $198.80/sale
So, promoting/selling these products for 40% commissions on top of the 40% “Residual” commissions you’re gonna get from ‘CF‘ can be a real life-changer!
Don’t you reckon?
But the really awesome part about the affiliate program is that your commissions are paid directly into your PayPal account on a “weekly” basis (after the 30-day refund period & when you earn a minimum of $50 per week).
Is The Support Up To Scratch?
You bet your ass it is!
When it comes to help and support, there are a couple of great options available:
Firstly, you can contact the ‘CF’ support team or Myles Alfred Clifford (the affiliate manager) if you have any issues.
Secondly, there’s a private Facebook group called ‘ClickFunnels Avengers’.
Now, what’s so amazing about the FB group is that it’s continuously active around the clock.
If you have any questions on any part of the training or products, you can get help quickly from a community of 44,000+ members (at the time of writing) that consists of newbies to highly successful affiliates.
Myles is also actively involved in the Facebook group along with Dave Woodward (‘The Dream Car Contest’ affiliate manager), and even Russell chimes in occasionally.
PROS vs CONS of ‘Bootcamp’
- Doesn’t cost you a single cent to join – It’s Free!
- Step-by-step video training
- An active Facebook support group
- Additional email support is included
- Lots of high-converting products to promote for 40% commissions
- Get paid an extra $500 to $1,000 per month to cover your dream car payments
- Commissions paid weekly via PayPal (when you meet the payment criteria)
- It’s a great starting point for affiliate newbies
- The potential to become financially free in 100 days
- Russell Brunson is a reputable marketer you can trust
- Some newbies will find the training overwhelming at first – Videos may need watching more than once
- You will need to invest a chunk of change into tools & paid traffic methods to start the ball rolling
My Final Thoughts…
In my honest opinion, the ClickFunnels Affiliate Bootcamp delivers fantastic training and support for building a profitable web-based business.
To get that level of value with any other training platform could very easily cost you $100s (even $1,000s).
So, we, as marketers, should be grateful that Russell’s training doesn’t cost a sausage. But then again, we are doing him a favor too lol.
I also love the fact that the guy’s products not only sell like hot cakes, but you get paid each and every week which makes a big difference to a lot of people.
However, the only thing about this sales funnel building approach to making money as an affiliate is that it’s best to have some spare cash available for resources and paid traffic before you start Brunson’s training.
The Bottom Line:
If you follow the Bootcamp training to the letter, work your tail off, and stick with it for the first 3 to 4 months, I believe that $4,000+ per month is within your grasp.
Watcha waiting for, Cadet?!…
Bootcamp #2: Wealthy Affiliate
Website: WealthyAffiliate.com (WA).
Cost: Start free here, then $49/month or $359/year.
Owners: Kyle & Carson.
Who is it For?: Newbies to Experts.
My Score: 9/10.
Wanna learn how you can earn 4 to 5 figures per month AND qualify for a free trip to Las Vegas once a year with the WA Bootcamp, huh?
Then continue reading to be blown away!…
Firstly, What The Heck is Wealthy Affiliate?
WA is an Internet and Affiliate Marketing community which provides you with WordPress websites, tools, step-by-step training, and 24/7 support for building a successful online biz.
In my experience and opinion, the community is flipping AMAZEBALLS!
You will not find anything quite like WA on the web. Period.
You get 2 options for learning to earn an income and become financially free.
Option #1: “Online Entrepreneur Certification” shows you how to turn any interest, hobby or passion you have into a full-time biz.
Option #2: “Affiliate Bootcamp” shows you how to create a full-time biz within the “Make Money Online” niche by promoting ‘WA’ itself.
This review focuses on the latter choice.
How Bootcamp Works For Big Bucks…
Kyle walks you through various step-by-step video tutorials for starting and building a highly profitable empire.
As a $0 starter member, you’ll get free access to “Phase 1 – Getting Your Business Rolling” which consists of 10 lessons.
- Getting Started!
- Choosing Your Direction
- Building Your Website
- A Website Look Around
- Activating Your Plugins
- Getting Your Website Ready for SEO
- Your Initial Framework of Content
- Understanding The Keyword Research Process
- Creating Thoughtful, Insightful Reviews
- The Exciting Journey Has Begun
Once you’ve got a web-based biz set up that’s ready to Rock N’ Roll, your next task is to upgrade to Premium membership @ $49/month or $359/year.
It pretty much unlocks FULL unlimited access to everything the community offers in terms of tools, services, training, and support for big success!
After you complete the Phase 1 training and become Premium, there are 6 more phases (each with 10 lessons) to follow and implement.
- Content, Keywords, and Conversions
- Giving Your Site Social Value
- Get Visual. Get Aesthetic. Get a Brand Through Media
- Know Your Audience & Catapulting Your Referrals
- Bing, Yahoo, & The Power of PPC
- How to Scale Successful PPC Campaigns
Now, I’m not gonna give away too much, because why spoil the surprise, hey? 😉
In addition to the phases, you get live weekly webinars (once every Friday) from Jay – a successful affiliate marketer and Bootcamp member.
Plus there’s heaps more training from other successful WAers.
Please Note: By no means is WA a “Get Rich Quick” scheme. You will need to work your socks off for a full-time income.
It’s for serious peeps only.
So, are you in or out, my young apprentice?…
Once inside the community, follow the steps to set up your profile and then head straight for the “Training” tab and choose “Affiliate Bootcamp” to set the wheels in motion.
Access Some Sweet Tools For The Job…
When it comes to the tools and services for building your biz, you get a big stack to leverage…
Firstly, there’s your free WordPress website which takes literally 30 seconds to build.
It also comes with high-security measures to stop hackers, bots, and spammers attacking your site.
Actually, you can build numerous free sites at WA. But for Bootcamp, you only need one.
Secondly, WA provides super-duper fast web-hosting for your site(s) which definitely helps with high rankings in Google.
Plus you have the option to purchase a domain for your website within WA starting from $13.99/year.
Thirdly, there’s a content, comments, and also a Jaaxy keyword tool for helping you stay on the right track with your blogging efforts and getting ranked in Google = traffic = sales = profits.
In addition, there’s a cool site health feature which monitors your blog(s) progress and performance in terms of content creation and engagement.
And to add the icing on the cake…
As an affiliate of WA, you can create your own custom WA affiliate links for tracking your referrals, and there’s a stats area for seeing clicks, conversions, and referrals.
Simply put, you get all the essential tools/services for becoming a WordPress Warrior and crushing it as an affiliate marketer!
Get Ample Amounts of Support For Success….
As for support from WA, you’ll be AMAZED at how much support you receive and at the speed you get it via the “Help Center”.
In my experience, I’ve never ever come across such a “lively, engaging, friendly and helpful” bunch of folks
Firstly, you have the option to connect with other WA members via live chat and get help as fast as a drag racer!
Secondly, there are various classrooms for asking the community questions.
Thirdly, you can Private Message any community member – including Kyle and Carson (WA co-founders).
Finally, there’s a tech support team who fix your website issues within just minutes/hours.
There’s no hanging tight for 24 – 48-hour windows, just like you find with most platforms.
In my book, WA has truly nailed support!
Is The WA Affiliate Program Worth it?
With the more-than-generous monthly “recurring” affiliate commissions, an affiliate program with a high-conversion rate, and especially a free trip to “Sin City” every 12 months as a BONUS…
You can bet your sweet bippy that following the Bootcamp training to promote WA for a full-time income is totally worth it!
“But how much am I gonna get paid, Neil?”
I’m glad you asked!
When you (as a Premium member yourself) refer a new member who chooses to upgrade to monthly Premium (1st-month special offer $19), you’ll get $8.
Thereafter, you’ll receive $23.50 per month for as long as they stay Premium.
Now, add some $175 yearly Premium member commissions on top of that, and it’s gonna give your income a lovely boost!
With recurring monthly and yearly commissions of almost 50%, I’m sure you’ll agree that Kyle and Carson are pretty generous.
And can you imagine the impact on your monthly income, referring literally 100s of WA Premium referrals every year would have?
In fact, some WA Bootcampers are earning up to and over $10,000 each month!!
And as for me?
In the words of the Spice Girls: “HA, you’ll see!” LOL.
Pack Your Bags For Vegas, Baby!!
Now, if a full-time income from WA wasn’t enough, then how about an “all-expenses-paid-trip” to the City of Sin stacked on top of that?!
Kyle and Carson offer you the opportunity to attend a 4-day ‘WA Super Affiliate Conference’ – rubbing shoulders with the Elite and having a jolly fun time with plenty of entertainment, top-notch grub, and bevvies thrown into the mix.
Everything is paid for, including your flights and MGM Grand hotel accommodation.
All you have to do is get that suitcase packed and board your ass on that plane!
Oh, and work like a Trojan beforehand lol.
Check out Kyle, Carson, and WA Bootcampers having heaps of FUN at the Vegas Incentive 2017.
“How the heck do I get this free trip, Neil?!”
Put simply, by referring 300 WA Premium referrals within a 12-month period.
From every January 1st – December 31st – if you get 300 sales – you’ll qualify for the freebie trip to Vegas and live the life of a high-roller (well, almost) for 4 whole days.
Plus you’ll get some super-cool SWAG goodies + “extra $” for gambling or whatever you like!
However, if you get 3,000 referrals in a year, your Vegas trip is stepped up a VERY BIG notch!
In addition, you’ll get picked up from the airport by a chauffeur-driven Bentley Mulsanne and cruise to the MGM in style – where a 3,000-foot Skyloft with full private Butler service awaits you.
Totally insane, right?
Remember: “What Happens in Vegas….” Well, you know the rest! 😉
Disclaimer: Earning a full-time income with the WA affiliate program and qualifying for that epic Vegas trip isn’t gonna be a piece of cake.
You must follow Kyle’s training and work your butt off for at least 12 months.
If you have the work ethic, drive, and patience, then I welcome you to join the community and participate in the WA Bootcamp.
PROS vs CONS of ‘WA Bootcamp’
- It costs $0 to get started
- Absolutely everything you need for success as a Premium member
- The step-by-step training is easy to follow for newbies
- 24/7 fast support (including “live chat”)
- WA is one of the cheapest & best affiliate communities/training platforms
- Earn nearly 50% recurring commissions
- The chance to qualify for an all-paid annual trip to Vegas, Baby!
- The platform/training may seem overwhelming for noobs at first
- The “Make Money Online” niche is extremely competitive, so you’ll need to invest a lot of work to succeed at making 4 – 5 figures/month & make Vegas. But it’s 100% doable
My Final Say…
In my experience, the WA affiliate program/Bootcamp and community as a whole really is one of the best ways to build a highly profitable business on the net as an Affiliate Marketer.
If you follow Kyle’s training to a T, take his advice on board, use the websites, tools, and support provided – you can build an incredible biz promoting WA, thus making it to Vegas.
But just like the ClickFunnels 100-Day Bootcamp, the WA Bootcamp will only work, IF YOU DO.
With both programs, you certainly have the opportunity to earn $4K per month (plus much more) + BONUSES.
But which Bootcamp will you choose, WA or CF?
If I was a newbie, I’d choose WA and then expand my wings with CF later on down the road to really boost my income.
But it’s your choice at the end of the day.
Your Friend, Neil 😀
