I thought I would have to put this post up here today as I still get lots of comments on my original post about Free Affiliate Insider, and about 95% of it is NOT GOOD. I am also subscribed to a thread about the program and Michael Beeson over at Yedda, and I urge you to have a read of it.
When I made my first post, I had just signed up with the program and had to overcome a few stumbling blocks, and the first 2 months or so it looked it might be a legitimate program, but after my own experience and reading through all the comments here on my blog and on Yedda, this is my final verdict of Free Affiliate Insider:
SCAM. Do not sign up for it. It’s not worth your money or the hassle.
If you want to make money on the Internet and you are serious, be prepared to put in some work by learning how to set up and manage your own website or blog, and you can be very successful. I mean you are trying to make money online, and that is only possible through websites/blogs, that’s the name of the game. Don’t you think it would be worth learning how to do that? There is no quick fix, and certainly not with Free Affiliate Insider. It takes a little bit of effort and time to get in the game, but it will be worth it to learn it yourself as then you yourself will be in control of your online business, not somebody else.
With this in mind, and knowing that most of you won’t have all that much money to spend on training manuals etc, I urge you to sign up for Affilorama, which is a FREEtraining and community site for aspiring affiliate marketers. Here you get taught everything about building a website or blog. Affilorama “… was founded in 2006 by well-known super-affiliate Mark Ling, and features step-by-step lessons, interviews with gurus of the internet marketing industry, a bunch of useful affiliate tools and a lively forum.”
I am subscribed, and I think it’s a wonderful site with lots of support and tons of free material and training to achieve success in affiliate marketing.
So, to be clear: I have officially put my site DietReviewCentral from Free Affiliate Insider on my pile on the office floor that gets no attention from me any more. Done and dusted, R.I.P. I have made sure that there won’t be any more future charges to me in any way (renewal of hosting or domain), and just let it run its course now. If you have signed up for more than one year of hosting, it might pay off to ask for a refund of some of the hosting fees ( it’s not worth it for me because my hosting company for that particular website does charge a cancellation fee which is about as high as the hosting for one year ). Also, have a think whether you could use your domain for another – better – website which you will build yourself. After all, if you sign up with Affilorama, you will learn how to do it!
I wish you all the success you deserve.
