Forever Affiliate Review Part 9: Week 3 Coaching

This entry is part 9 of 9 in the Forever Affiliate Review series

Forever Affiliate Video CourseI’m back with a long overdue installment of my Forever Affiliate review!

I’ve been having a lot of problems with my internet connection the last few months, so I haven’t been able to work on any of my websites very much, and I had to put the Forever Affiliate course on hold. However, yesterday we finally found the signal booster that was packed away in our garage. Hopefully once we’ve set it up on the roof we’ll have regular internet access again!

This time I’m covering week 3 of the coaching, along with the relevant videos from Phase 2 of the basic course.

Forever Affiliate Video Course Phase 2: Testing and Validation

ForeverAffiliate Phase 2I already reviewed the first part of this phase in Part 6: Building Profitable Sites, so in this part of the review I’ll go over the last 3 sections.

Post 2012 Content Creation

This section has 7 videos, which are almost 2 hours long in total. The first thing Andrew teaches us is the general strategies to use for minisites and authority sites, and the differences between them. The focus of this course is minisites, though these minisites are not like the old-school minisites.

Andrew says we will only have 1 or 2 authority sites in our portfolio, because they take a long time to build up and start making money. This is a bit of a bummer for me, because my current portfolio is basically made up of only authority sites, but they do take ages to start making money so I’m excited to try making minisites too.

Scarcity Samurai Review

Update: 30 May 2016

Note that I now use a different scarcity plugin which I recommend over Scarcity Samurai. Read my Thrive Ultimatum review to find out more about it and to see how the two plugins compare. I have uninstalled Scarcity Samurai from this blog, so any scarcity banners or widgets you see now are made with Thrive Ultimatum.

Scarcity Samurai boxI caved and bought the Scarcity Samurai plugin today 😛

If you don’t already know, I’m a bit of an addict when it comes to WordPress plugins and themes. I try to keep out of the WSO section of the Warrior Forum as much as possible, otherwise I end up spending way more than I should.

This is because the WSO section is full of limited-time discounts and dimesales, the bane of my existence! When a product I like doesn’t have one of these, I usually put it on my wishlist and maybe come back to buy it in a few months – or I just forget about it, which is always better for my wallet 😉

On the other hand, if the product is discounted for a limited time or if it’s on a dimesale, I usually end up buying it that same day. It gets me every time! ^^;

These sales tactics work by applying scarcity to a product to get us (the buyers) to take action immediately, instead of putting it off for another day (that may never come). The creators of Scarcity Samurai tested the difference in conversions between a page that used Scarcity Samurai and one that didn’t, and the one that did use it had an increase in conversions of 450% – 4.5 times more sales!

Forever Affiliate Review Part 7: Week 1 Coaching

This entry is part 7 of 9 in the Forever Affiliate Review series

Forever Affiliate Video CourseHi everyone! It’s been a couple of weeks since the last part of my Forever Affiliate review.

If you read my previous post, then you know why – I’ve been suffering from pain in my arms from working on the computer too much. The pain isn’t gone yet, but my arms are feeling a bit better and I really wanted to get back to doing the Forever Affiliate course and working on my websites, so I’ve been trying to catch up this weekend.

While I was on my temporary hiatus from the computer, the coaching started for those of us who bought one of the upsells, so I will be reviewing that as well each week.

Additional Cost

Before I begin, I just wanted to let you all know about an extra cost I found last week when I was checking the competition of possible niches.

Forever Affiliate Review Part 6: Building Profitable Sites

This entry is part 6 of 9 in the Forever Affiliate Review series

Forever Affiliate Video CourseHey everybody! Today I begin reviewing Phase 2 of the Forever Affiliate course.

I hope those of you that bought the course are further along than me! This last week has been crazy – on Saturday I put together a list of about 100 niches using one of the techniques Andrew teaches, but then life happened and I haven’t had the chance to put them through the product analysis funnel yet. I probably should have put them through the funnel as I found them, but it’s so addictive and I was on a roll! 😛

Now, on to Phase 2! This phase is divided into 4 parts:

  1. Site Setup
  2. Post 2012 Content Creation
  3. Promotion
  4. Testing

There are a lot of videos in here, so today we’ll just go over the site setup part, and I’ll continue with the rest of Phase 2 next time.
