Introduction to Anthony
Before I get to the nuts and bolts of the course, MY DISCLAIMER:
What to Expect from a Morrison Publishing Program
The Partner with Anthony Program Breakdown
First off, you're met with a big heading stating:
Why Not Partner With Me For 2020?"
It tells you immediately what the course should be about and why you need it. It also implies that you will be working with Anthony. Who wouldn't want to partner up with a multi-millionaire and build their business?
The next line in the yellow banner (pictured below), illustrates this point in more detail.
Then you'll see a "LIVE" feed of Anthony. He sits at his desk at home with quirky images behind him, all done to create a sense of familiarity. Anthony tells you why he became an entrepreneur and why he wants to help you.
He includes pics and clips of his own successes, which ncludes a clip where he was featured on CNN to build his credibility. One thing I did pick up was that with this program, Anthony will show you the exact process he used to make "...a million dollars over ten years ago."
I have to ask: Is this training then still relevant? It's a weird statement to make for someone who consistently makes 7 figures a year from the internet. If we sign up, do we get his old (and possibly outdated) methods, processes and strategies?
So, straight off the bat, Anthony tells you that you are not going to make thousands of dollars per month using his affiliate program training...
So, can you make money?
Will it be a lot, or enough to quit your job?
Doesn't seem like it...
It's not "live", by the way. It's a recording and once you close the page and open it again, it starts playing again from the beginning. I can only wonder why Anthony would want you to believe that he is "live"..?
To me, if someone says they're "live" and they are clearly not, it questions their credibility...
Also, the "Special Offer" for a "select few founding members", is nothing but sales talk. The course price has been $7 for a year now. "#transparency #honesty", right?
- Creating a capture page using ClickFunnels, to collect email leads. You set it up to automatically redirect people who subscribe to the PWA sales page through your referral. Once they've signed up, you get a small "commission".
- You will also be sending people emails about joining PWA, who didnt't initially sign up. You are basically retargeting people with email marketing who abandoned their "cart". It's a similar process to eCommerce retargeting.
And that is basically the entire program in a nutshell (bar the extras). Anthony also offers you some done for you funnels, which is probably what he referred to when he said: “I’ll do mostly everything for you...”
What does PWA offer?
Partner With Anthony is a training course that teaches you how to make money with affiliate marketing. Affiliate Marketing is a business model throuugh which you promote other people’s products online, for a commission. If they buy the product, you get a commission.
It is a legitimate business model (I have used it myself), with good earning potential (with the right products).
Does Anthony, however, offer value with his Partner With Anthony training?
The way Partner With Anthony (PWA) works is by teaching you how to promote PWA itself, as an affiliate. So when you refer others to the same business model, and they sign up (like you did), then you earn commissions.
You also earn commissions on any tools or additional training your referrals purchase, as they progress through the training.
For example, you will need to purchase tools like ClickFunnels, Aweber (email autoresponder) and link tracking software, in order to make your business work. So if your referral goes through with the training and starts implementing the PWA business model, you earn as they subscribe.
If it's a once-off fee for a tool or training, you get a once-off commission. But if it's a monthly subscription, then you earn a monthly commission for as long as they keep paying. This offers you a form of passive income.
It's not as good as the passive income potential from my Number One business option for 2020, but it's at least a start.
Is PWA a worthwhile course?
Clickfunnels gives you the tools and software to create sales funnels. It has a free 14 day trial, but after that, subscriptions are between $99 and $297 per month.
Offers you click and conversion tracking software. It costs between $19.99 and $99.99 per month.
This is Anthony Morrison’s very own membership site with more training videos and a private Facebook group that will cost $69.95 per year.
Another Morrison Publishing product, featuring a monthly newsletter about optimising your campaigns and earning "even more money". $9.95 per month.
Offers email autoresponders and landing pages between $15 and $1,199 per month (depending on volumes).
An effective tool to collect email subscribers. Available between $19 and $149 per month.
You’re going to need to sign up to all of these monthly subscriptions if you want to implement the training, promote Partner With Anthony and see results.
That means even if you go for the lowest priced package options in each case, the best case scenario is that you’re going to need to shell out a whopping $159.99 per month (plus $69.95 per year and $9.95 if you want Anthony's additional training and tips).
That's a lot of additional expenses that you did not budget for...
Review Conclusion of Partner With Anthony
And let's not forget the dozens of add-on and upsell products that he suggests you buy from Morrison Publishing in order to be successful at (his version of) affiliate marketing.
With the PWA program, you will not learn how to be an independent affiliate marketer, nor how to build your own affiliate marketing business around something that you enjoy. You also don't learn anything about internet marketing to help you be a successful affiliate marketer.
Instead of getting people to buy something from you that you are passionate about, you end up selling Anthony's course to more people (like you) in the way that he subscribes.
In short, your partnership entails collecting email leads and promoting PWA as an affiliate. Thus, you are “partnering” with Anthony by learning how to promote his program. This is how the partnership benefits - both of you make money from each sale.
If you are eager to learn about affiliate marketing and being a successful online entrepreneur, then I don't suggest this course.
What I like:
What I didn't like:
Is Affiliate Marketing the right fit for you in 2020?
- Knowing which products and/or services to sell.
- Researching and knowing your market/audience to whom you're selling.
- Marketing: You need to know how to set up your sales funnels, which include marketing and retargeting with email campaigns. Instead of traditional sales methods, you need to know everything about digital marketing.
What's the alternative to Affiliate Marketing?
Luckily, there are tons of options to make money online in the digital age. I have tried my hand at many of them with varying degrees of success. I've had successes with affiliate marketing, dropshipping, Amazon FBA, digital agency (selling SEO and social media services) and lead generation.
There's only one business model though, that has consistently outperformed all the others - combined!
And it's done this for me for several years now.
