Affiliate Marketing Classes – What Is the Best Affiliate Marketing Training?


So you want to learn affiliate marketing and might be feeling overwhelmed by the choice of affiliate marketing classes out there. You’re probably asking the question: What is the best affiliate marketing training?

I searched high and low for the best training to get me started in this business. And it can be a very lucrative business if you learn the right way, put in the work and have some patience.  Working online has very little overheads compared to many offline businesses, but it’s all about learning the tricks of the trade, minimising your expenses and maximising your traffic and profits.

In this post I’m going to be listing four companies where you can learn affiliate marketing, with my number one pick at the top of the list. All four are legitimate businesses to get involved with, so don’t worry about me sending you off to some place that is just going to scam you out of your money. I won’t do that. As corny as it may sound, your success is my success.

These reviews will be brief snippets of each company. I have written more detailed reviews of all four, which I’ll link to at the end of each mini review here.

Affiliate Marketing Training Too Hot To Pass Up!

Wealthy Affiliate – My #1 Choice

Wealthy AffiliateI literally researched the internet endlessly for somewhere to start with affiliate marketing and I finally settled on Wealthy Affiliate. I’ve never regretted that decision. It truly is, in all honesty, the best place to learn this business. The training is first class, step-by-step with text and video and extremely easy to follow. Added to that is an active community that is always willing to help out. Members of WA also contribute training of their own, free of charge, for everyone to learn from.

The best part is, it’s FREE to get started and look around. In fact there is never any obligation to pay for a membership upgrade (although it’s well worth it if you do). As a Starter Member you even get to create and host 2 FREE websites!

Here’s a quick list of the main benefits of joining Wealthy Affiliate:

  • Step-by-step training (videos, tutorials, classrooms, live training)
  • Members contribute training
  • Live chat
  • Very active community
  • Access and technical support 24/7

Chris Farrell Membership – My #2 Choice

Chris Farrell Membership LogoChris Farrell Membership (CFM) is another great place to learn this business. It’s not my number one, but to take the number two spot it has to be pretty good. Apart from offering awesome training, Chris Farrell himself is a very likeable guy. Originally from England but now living in California, Chris started his internet marketing career in 2008 and has since become an expert at it, raking in millions!

Like Wealthy Affiliate above, Chris has designed his training to teach even beginner marketers how to set up an affiliate marketing business from scratch. His training approach is a little different from WA, but he still covers a lot of similar ground. His training incorporates a lot of videos and he really focuses heavily on traffic generation strategies.

Here are the key benefits to a Chris Farrell Membership:

  • Chris Farrell is likeable and knows his stuff
  • The course is step-by-step, easy to follow methodology
  • It doesn’t cost a lot to get started. There is an easy payment plan to continue membership and learning
  • Lots of video lessons to supplement the learning
  • You don’t need to be experienced at marketing to do this course. Primarily aimed at beginners
  • Unlimited FREE website hosting
  • Supportive and active community of members
  • Official support from the company and from its active members
  • Teaches you how to take full advantage of social media marketing

Affilorama – My #3 Choice

Affilorama LogoComing in a close third just behind Chris Farrell Membership is Affilorama. People often toss up between joining either Wealthy Affiliate or Affilorama, because they both sound like they are offering similar training and community platforms. Affilorama membership is more expensive, though, and they do push a few upsells for extra training and membership above and beyond the Premium (paid) membership.

Affilorama offer very good and solid training, once again guiding even beginning marketers on the path to online business success. You will learn how to set up a profitable niche for your website, be guided step-by-step how to create that website, fill it with content based on keyword research that you are taught, all the way through to turning it into a profitable business.

Here are the key benefits to becoming a member:

  • Step-by-step training
  • Extra paid training modules you can enrol in to take your skills to the next level
  • Hundreds of videos and online lessons
  • Learn affiliate marketing the right way
  • Very active and helpful community
  • Learn how to build a website
  • Study SEO and how to do it successfully
  • Run by a very experienced and successful marketer, Mark Ling

Bring The Fresh – My #4 Choice

Bring The Fresh LogoOperated by a guy named Kelly Felix, Bring The Fresh comes in at the number four spot on my list. Kelly is a very well-known marketer and entrepreneur and he has made a lot of money over the years. Once again this training platform teaches you how to become an affiliate marketer, set up an online business from scratch, get your website ranked and ultimately making money. The difference with Bring The Fresh is they actually include software they takes care of a lot of the website set up for you, cutting down on your learning and labour time. The idea is to get you up and running and making money as quickly as possible.

Benefits of Bring The Fresh:

  • Quality step-by-step training
  • Software to build your site
  • Upgrades for greater learning
  • Active community forum
  • Regularly updated training
  • Ready-made and optimised WordPress templates
  • Interviews with top affiliate marketers
  • 60 day money back guarantee

  1. Hi there.

    I’m currently a member of Wealthy Affiliate and I can vouch that it really is the best one out there.

    I did try other programs and courses (although not the ones on the list) but I am very happy with WA and I have no plans of ever leaving.

    Been there for over 3 years now and I am still learning something new everyday.

    All the best.

    • Thanks for reading and leaving a comment.

      Wealthy Affiliate is the best and glad to hear that you agree. If you’ve been a member for 3 years and are never planning on leaving, well that says just about all there is to say.

  2. Hello,

    I agree that your number 1 choice is the best affiliate marketing training program out there. Which is something that people need to be able to understand the difference between an affiliate program and an affiliate marketing training product. Fortunately, WA has both; but the real value is in the training.

    Great post,

  3. Dear Darren,

    This is the best place to be hands down, it is simply phenomenal being in such a supportive online community, I wish I never went to college!

    WA is my Top #1 Pick and I hope that many people come to know about it sooner rather than later because they are really missing out on a true legit online opportunity. Make your passion your paycheck!

    Wishing you all the best with your online success above and beyond the horizon,


    • You are spot on, Angel. That’s why it’s at the top of my list. The support you receive from everyone at Wealthy Affiliate is amazing, and the atmosphere is so positive. It makes you feel like you are going to be successful, and that’s really important.

      Thanks for reading and for leaving a comment.

      All the best, Darren

  4. Hi Darren.

    These 4 sources that you gave are great. There are others as well, but these 4 will do. Wealthy Affiliate is also my favourite because you get for what you pay for.

    They are also very newbie friendly and the chances of me ever leaving is zero. I would recommend anyone to join if they are serious about making money online.

  5. Hi Darren,

    I like the way you gave short snippets of the four different training platforms for us to compare, but still provided the links for us to read the full reviews of each one.

    As an affiliate marketer, I understand the importance of finding a good training platform to help guide you in building an online business and learning what it takes to be successful.Joining an excellent training platform is probably the first decision you will make when you begin your move to own an online business.

    Thanks for giving us a look at these training avenues.


    • Hi Verna. How’s affiliate marketing going for you? Have you done any training? Yes, training and learning the right way is vital to business success, not to mention the confidence it gives you. Thanks for sharing your comments.

  6. You gave some great resources as to which affiliate marketing training platforms is the best. It is a very hard question to answer because it depends on what business model you want to follow.

    For ppc and ppv I would recommend Traffic Blackbook by Chad Hamzeh which is a very powerful and in depth course.

  7. I have also tried my hand at affiliate marketing and had some success too.

    I am certainly aware of Wealthy Affiliate and I can see why you put it on your number one spot.

    I have not heard of the others you mention though, but I know of one called Maverick Money Makers which you didn’t touch on. Do you know anything of this one in comparison?
