Affiloblueprint: An Honest Affiliate Marketing System

mark ling photoToday, I?ll be reviewing AffiloBlueprint, the infamous step-by-step guide to creating an affiliate marketing website. It was created by Mark Ling, an 8-figure millionaire affiliate. Before I jump into what is included, and whether it is worth it or not, I want to tell you a bit more about Mark?s story – and I think you?ll be very surprised.


Mark began affiliate marketing in college. He was making $3,000 a week in less than a year. He did this by ranking highly in Google search engines, and targeting profitable niches. And this was all great – until one day he got Google slapped, and it instantly started to crash! But Mark didn?t give it up. He decided to give it another go, and this time instead of focusing on banner ads, he decided to put more focus on making money through email marketing. And you know what?



It worked


It worked so well, that he looked at his dad. He was in a stressful job he hated. Mark wanted to help him do what he was doing – so he created AffiloBlueprint, a system his technically challenged dad could even use. And you know what?

His dad is now retired on a 6-figure income that works on autopilot!

AffiloBlueprint Stips Away The Confusion With A Foul-Proof Guide To Success


AffiloBlueprint is exactly what it says it is – a blueprint. It tells you what you need to do, step-by-step guide to creating an affiliate website by scratch. It contains 12 modules. Each module includes over-the-shoulder videos, PDF notes and homework to complete. At the end of the course, you?ll have a finished website – and, just as importantly, traffic too!

This is great for new affiliates, who still don?t understand all of the steps involved, and need a blueprint to follow. I went through it, and I can personally tell you that Mark Ling?s formula works. And he has left nothing out – it is all there.

Get One-On-One Help With Mark Ling?s Support Staff


Wouldn?t it be nice to have access to someone who can look over your website, and give you suggestions to improve it? Wouldn?t it be nice to have mentors on-hand? When you purchase AffiloBlueprint, you will also get the opportunity to talk with support staff as much as you like! They can give you one-on-one training, help and answers. Other services usually charge hundreds to thousands of dollars for this, making it an absolute steal. On that note…

AffiloBlueprint Will Actually Save You Money And Pay For Itself


Obviously, it will pay for itself by teaching you how to make a money-magnet website. But it will also save you money – right now. As a new affiliate, my guess is you?ve bought lots and lots of products and services, such as web hosting, and SEO tools. All of those things are great – but the monthly expenses add up! One thing I really enjoyed with AffiloBlueprint is it taught me how to do everything using FREE tools. So you can rank websites in Google using FREE tools and services. They even include free website hosting for up to 5 websites for a year!

But AffiloBlueprint Has A Downside – So Be Careful!


AffiloBlueprint gives you everything you need to succeed, but it doesn?t give you a website in your lap. It comes with homework modules, and you have to actually DO the work – otherwise, you won?t even make money. If you want a made-for-you solution, you will need to look elsewhere because this isn?t it. They have purposefully given you the training and not made the sites so that they can offer it for a reduced price.

If You Want A Formula For Success, This Is It




As long as you are willing to do the work and follow the system, you are guaranteed to make a website that is exactly how Mark Ling does it. It is really easy to follow the instructions, and no matter what, you have a 60 day money back guarantee, so you really have nothing to lose. Check it out before the FREE bonuses expire, which are worth $164 by themselves! To find out what they are and to see AffiloBlueprint for yourself, check it out here.

My review of Blueprint Pro – Barely not a scam

blueprint proProduct: Blueprint Pro
Overall Ranking: 7 on10
Price: $67 for Blueprint Pro or?$67/mo for Blueprint Pro+,Platinum package $647 one time

Owners: Tom Godfrey and Steven Clayton


Blueprint pro is an internet marketing course that purports to make us immune to the changes in the internet such as the Panda and Penguin?


Blueprint pro is an internet marketing course that purports to make us immune to the changes in the internet such as the Panda and Penguin updates of our benevolent pals at Google. There has to be a thousand so called gurus talking to us about this since last year.

In brief this scheme supposedly allows us to skirt the big bad Panda and Penguin of Google. How is this possible??Good old tried and true techniques such as quality content and good old fashioned contact lists. That?s how.?So why is this so revolutionary that we would shell out up to $647 of our hard earned or scarce money? What?s so new about this course? And is it a scam?
Let?s look further.

The product looks like a well defined internet marketing course covering the basics


The Good and The Bad

The product looks like a well defined internet marketing course covering the basics including keyword research and site development. They say that they can help us find niched businesses ?to sell to and populate a website that will attract potential conversions through techniques such as mailing lists; perhaps the hardest thing to achieve in internet marketing.

But we see in their literature evidence that this could be a SCAM with the usual wild claims of riches or short duration to go from rags to riches. Stuff like ? $11,000 per month” in earnings makes me leary.

Have we not heard this all before?

We are led to understand that the current state of the internet still honors tried and true techniques such as quality content and so on. God knows I?ve been saying this for years. Quality content targeting a niche will usually pay off.

This product is for those starting out in Internet marketing or those who have been at for some time?


WHO IS Blueprint Pro FOR?

This product is for those starting out in Internet marketing or those who have been at it for some time who want to compliment what they have learned from other ?quality programs such as Wealthy Affiliate or Affilorama.


Online videos as well as documents form the basics of the program. You have access if you upgrade to a forum in which over 40 thousnad persons could help you as well as access to the owners of this program.

Blueprint Pro SUPPORT
There is a forum available to Blueprint Pro+ customers as well as a support email address which I have not tested.

It looks legit but I don?t like the ?scamy? claims.


My Final Opinion Blueprint Pro

It looks legit but I don?t like the ?scamy? claims. Most reviews feel this program is legit though. From what I see I am going to give them the benefit of doubt.

PRODUCT NAME: Blueprint Pro

If you are sick and tired of battling to make money online claims in the brutal changing online environment where websites run the risk of being obliterated by search engine changes that are out of our control, then this may be a helpful program.


Owners: Tom Godfrey and Steven Clayton
Price: $67 for Blueprint Pro or $67/mo for Blueprint Pro+, Platinum package $647 one time

Overall Scam Rank: 7 out of 10

How do you find good keywords?

keyword-research-servicesWhy is keyword research important?


It is important because in order to attract visitors and maintain a good search engine ranking you have to write content about things your potential customers are looking for. This is done by using keywords which are essentially a phrase somebody would type into a search engine.

How do I use my keywords?


You use keywords to create titles for your articles. For example you may be writing about cameras on your site. So a keyword influenced title might be “How to clean my Nikon D60?” ?So in this example people typing the keyword phrase?”How to clean my Nikon D60?” may see your page listed ?high up in the search results and read your article and may purchase the cleaning kit for cameras you are selling.

You can also use variations of your keyword phrase as subjects within your article. Something like “Cleaning the lense” and “Cleaning the mirror“.

Thirdly you can connect some keywords to your social networks when you post a link to your article on let’s say Google+ or Facebook to help increase your rankings in the search engines.

question markHow do I find my Keywords?


There are several ways to do this; some for free and some for a monthly or one time fee. Here are a few examples.

1 – Alphabet Soup

This technique is free and involves playing around with Google’s search box. You begin with let’s say our example “How do I clean my Nikon d60?” What you will notice is that Google will also suggest some alternative related searches. So now you have your original keyword and perhaps a few good alternatives you can use.

The technique also involves suffixing or prefixing the letters A-Z to your original keyword. This will render potentially many more useful keywords.

To illustrate this in action please see this short video on the alphabet soup keyword research technique.


?Click photo or this link to view video

While the Alphabet Soup technique is free it is a bit of a lengthy process to come up with a long list of relevant keywords for your niche. Also you have little idea which ones are the least competitive compared to others. Using low competition keywords is a good practice because though it may not bring you a lot of traffic for one particular keyword; the aggregation of all your keywords on your site will.

Also low competition keywords should render better search engine ranking very quickly. As a rule of thumb if your article is listed on the 3 first pages of the search result you are likely to get a good amount of traffic.

?2 -?Ubersuggest? automates the Alphabet Soup technique for you. All you do is type in your phrase in a search box and it will return a list of various suggested related keywords. You would have probably have ended with the same list doing it manually as explained above; but this is a lot faster and you can save and download you results for use later on your website.

Here’s how it works with another example keyword “how do you find good keywords“.

Ubersuggest Search Box

As we can see it found 56 results which you select and get to download for future use. Saving them in a spreadsheet or notepad file is where I suggest you keep them.

Ubersuggest Keywords Download

?Again the advantage of Ubersuggest is that it is free and quick to come up with lists of relevant keywords. But you do not have any idea of which ones are lower competition compared to the others in the group.

3- Keyword Research Suites

Now let’s look at some tools that will not only help you find keywords but also tell you which ones you should target and a bit more. There are several ?good products out there that are known as Keyword Research Suites. Here are a few good ones.

    • Jaaxy
    • Wordstream
    • SEMRush

I’m going to talk about Jaaxy because it is full featured, offers a free limited trial, and is well priced.?Wordstream and SEMRush are excellent tools as well but are much more expensive and are geared towards larger businesses and enterprises.

Jaaxy has several features including keyword search, site ranking, affiliate program search, and domain name search. You can also save all your results on the site or download them for future use. And training is included. Here is an example of a quick keyword search using one of our examples. Note that I am only showing a partial result in order to present some essentials. A lot more is returned in actual searches.



As a rule of thumb we are targeting keywords with > 50 monthly searches and a QSR of 300 or less?


What I want to point out are a few statistics; monthly searches, estimated traffic, and QSR (Quoted Search Results) and the little colored dots. Obviously green means good and yellow or red are not as good.?Why?

As a rule of thumb we are targeting keywords with > 50 monthly searches and a QSR of 300 or less. This should represent low competition (QSR) for those keywords marked with green dots and you should rank high in the search results. Remember it’s the aggregate of all your good keywords that will represent your overall site traffic.

You can validate your keyword performance quickly


With Jaaxy you can measure the result of your keywords rapidly. As an example I entered below one of mine to see how it performed. The keyword is “boomer travel trends” which is relevant to one of my websites.

So the result was very good. My article showed up on page one of the search results. This means that potential customers will see this article right away and there is a good chance they will visit my site; and perhaps purchase something I offer.


So it is obvious that using advanced keyword research suites are the best way to optimize your keyword research as well as adding additional functionality. Jaaxy for instance does offer a free trial for thirty keyword searches. It’s a good way to explore the power of the tool before buying.

You can have a quick peek by using this search window below to see for yourself.

My Internet Marketing Career So Far

internet marketingIn my professional life before I retired I was an IT professional. I graduated college in 1975 as a qualified programmer; a new field in its day. I started out at a major Canadian bank programming in COBOL (look it up). Then I moved on to a major worldwide engineering firm in Montreal, finally ending up my career at a Canadian railway where I ran IT technical support, networks, data centres, call centres, and in the end a wireless internet service for our passengers.

I used to think marketing was for lightweights


All along the way I was exposed to the various marketing departments where I worked. I didn’t get what they did actually. And why did they consume so much of our corporate budget, I thought? To say that I did not respect what these marketing people did was the least disrespectful of thoughts I had. You have probably seen the countless Dilbert cartoons to know what I am talking about.

War existed between IT and Marketing.

I wanted to earn money to supplement my retirement income


Like many of us I consider myself quite tech savvy so I decided to start a website in the autumn of 2012 shortly after my retirement. Not only was I going to start a website but I wanted to earn money to supplement my retirement income and also have some fun doing it as well.

I thought it was a piece of cake; technically. I had chosen WordPress as my platform after dabbling with Joomla and Drupal. ?But nobody was coming to my technically beautiful site. What was wrong?

SCAMI fell for some scams along the way

So I searched around a bit and fell for a sales pitch about a “web business in a box”. Intrigued I ordered their sales material which arrived by courier a few days later. After digging some more into the offer I discovered that this “web business in a box” was part of a huge multi level marketing campaign where I would have been at the bottom of the pyramid; probably earning little while my “coach” higher up was going to make most of the money and get rich off my work. Did not seem to be fair to me so I abandoned that idea.

I joined affiliate programs in the hopes of making some commissions. Never earned a dime. I tried dropshipping and an Amazon Affiliate store. I even tried something called Resellers Heaven (to be reviewed later). Was I in heaven or was I in hell? Check out this at my site I set up which I am not too proud of now. In short, several hundred dollars, maybe over a thousand, ?spent on sites and not a penny of revenue.

I discovered that I was not following internet marketing best practices


I then discovered that I was not following best practice for site design, SEO, social media and content. How did I come to this conclusion? I searched all over the place for answers. I looked at my situation and determined that I needed professional help. I was not going to figure this out on my own easily. I got discouraged until I discovered?Wealthy Affiliate.

So I ended up here at Wealthy Affiliate (see review) ?because it is the only place where online marketing training guides you through the right steps to becoming successful.


Proper training like that at Wealthy Affiliate has helped me considerably


I am now getting many more “quality” visits to my original site I started in late 2012. And I have created another niche site here at Wealthy Affiliate that already attracts significant traffic since just a short time. ?I have even made my first sales commissions in the past month.

Now with the training, support, and resources I have retrofitted my first site launched in 2012 and am getting solid traffic and legit comments. I never got a legit comment on my first site I created before this training.

moneyAll my sites are receiving decent traffic and engagement with visitors and I have started to earn sales commissions


So far the best part of the courses has been the keyword research techniques which were much simpler than I had imagined. They really help you to focus on a meaningful audience and act as a guide to writing content.?On my first site?I have thirteen posts so far and have written 7?for?Street Articles.?I have also submitted an article to?EZINE?where I had already published earlier in my blogging career.

I am also social bookmarking at Reddit, Delicious, and Stumbelupon; along with posting to my Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and G+ pages. I have also joined one forum within my niche.

All in all a busy month, but thoroughly enjoying the experience.?And the community is awesome; I have collected 142 followers in that can be of benefit to myself and to them further on.

Why was I so lost?
