Not everyone has lots of money to spend on affiliate marketing courses, training or even masterminds. Lots of entrepreneurs are bootstrapping their business, saving and skimping as much as they can, putting all their commission back into their assets, but on occasion it's worth while splashing out on a course. So today, we are going to have a look at some of the best affiliate marketing courses for under $500.
It will be a mix of monthly programs, and fixed price or one off courses that all come in under $500. For the monthly ones, I will look at the cost over 12 months and see if it's worth it for the price per month.
I have also not put this list in any particular order, as they are all worth it in their own rights, so be sure to check out each one before making that decision!
Legendary Marketers Marketing Club
Kicking off this article is the Legendary Marketers, Marketers Club, a pay monthly affiliate training course, designed to teach you all about the different aspects and parts of affiliate marketing.
The Marketers club is the second product on offer from the guys at Legendary Marketer, and is a brilliant transition from the Business Builder Challenge, designed to build upon the knowledge and information you learn in that training to take you up a notch.
The training is great for those who know nothing about Affiliate Marketing and are still deciding if it's for them, or what style they want to master.
The majority of the training is aimed at funnels and ads, which can be a great way of getting started with Affiliate Marketing quickly, but for those without much capital may find it a little more difficult. I would compare this with Wealthy Affiliate, but then I would also add that it's better.
You have more up to date training, newer training every month and you get access (if you want and are accepted) to a much better affiliate program.
Savage Affiliates 2.0
A brilliant 'all round' affiliate marketing course, the original Savage Affiliates was the reason that I got back into Affiliate Marketing, and even kick started this very blog
Recently updated with new modules and videos, Savage Affiliates 2.0 is great for those who are just starting out or who want to learn the broad range of affiliate marketing styles.
The course is broken into lots of different modules, some focusing on blogging and SEO, others going towards paid ads, funnels and even email marketing. It has something for everyone.
I would say the the larger majority of the training is focused on building up a blog asset and focusing on content and then email marketing, with the second largest being about building landing pages and funnels.
To date, this is one of the best affiliate marketing courses for under $500, considering the sheer amount of content and value within the course. Frank Hachett really did smash this one out of the park with Savage Affiliates 2.0.
ClickFunnels Affiliate BootCamp Summit
If you are focusing on ClickFunnels, or you are interested in getting started with funnels in general, then the OG of boot camps, might just be for you.
The Affiliate Bootcamp, used to be a free coursed based on taking a complete newbie in affiliate marketing from 0 to hero, in 100 days.
I think ClickFunnels realised that the training wasn't quite giving their users exactly what they needed, the videos where out of date and basically rubbish.
Around June, July 2019, possibly a little earlier, they closed it down, re-vamped it and then put out a much shorter, more concise version.
The Affiliate Bootcamp Summit is now made up of videos and interviews from 15 of ClickFunnels biggest affiliates.
The training is actually different from most of the other courses you will find on your list, as it's all about tapping into multiple peoples heads to get at what they would do to succeed with affiliate marketing. Rather than just having one person teach different methods
If you are feeling stuck, then it's well worth taking the time and energy to go through it. Especially as it costs nothing.
ClickFunnels One Funnel Away
As part of the big revamp of the ClickFunnels Affiliate Bootcamp, there was also a secret training course being created. It was designed to show basically anyone how to build their own funnel.
Be it a vendor trying to sell a training course, a dentist collecting leads or an affiliate marketing trying to promote weight loss tea, this training course is designed to get you there.
The course itself is around 30 days long, focusing on the the idea, the execution and then the growth and after care of your new funnel. The best part is it actually comes with some pretty awesome bonuses.
For your $100, you get all of the following.
As you can tell, the books and the videos alone are worth the cost of entry, everything else is just value on top of value.
Exitus Elite G500
A new one for this list, and something that I will be covering in more detail in a different review at a later date.
Elite G500 is part of a platform called Exitus Elite, aimed at allowing users to sell or shall I say re-sell training (and platform access) for direct commissions. It essentially means you can keep 100% of the commissions for yourself.
You actually get access to something called the Genesis Library, the G500 provides access to 3 different levels.
The baseline level is essentially the core aspects of affiliate marketing and 'make money online', so they also throw in a little extra about other methods.
You will also get access to G250, which really starts to ramp things up, mixing in how to target high ticket commissions, using social media for lead gen and how to build emails and of course your leads through different methods.
Finally, something that is different than other training courses, you unlock the G500, which focuses on self improvement, sales, how to build webinars and utilise them and finally how to start smashing out those emails and articles and become a copywriter guru.
The one thing I love about Exitus, is that you actually get the chance to build your own team of affiliates. Which is a bit different from other training courses which usually just give you the training and that's it.
Dream Car Profits
A course that I picked up around the middle of 2019 just after Jacob scored his Dreamcar status for ClickFunnels.
At the time the course was $47, and to be honest, it was packed with some pretty decent strategies for improving your affiliate marketing game.
Even though the course is shorter than others around the same price point (The One Funnel Away Challenge for example), I still think it's full of a ton of value.
The course is split into 6 different videos, aimed at different areas from adwords & bing, to SEO and blogging. Now, you might say it's not groundbreaking, or anything new, but Jacob does offer some golden nuggets, especially for the price.
It's a training course that I would say any entrepreneur would want on their metaphorical shelf.
Conclusion - Can You Really Get An Affiliate Marketing Courses Under $500?
Most people believe that you have to spend $$$$'s on courses and training to get started with affiliate marketing, and that's just not true, you really can find affiliate marketing training for under $500.
You can really get stuck in for $30 a month or on occasion even less.
If you have $100 you can pick up some great courses, if you can stretch up to $300 you can pick one of the best training courses I have ever taken and still go back too every single day.
For those feeling flush you can get access too a platform that offers you 100% commissions and the ability to resell training and platform access starting from just $100.
James started The Online Student as a typical blog telling people about his struggles and woes with DropShipping, Amazon FBA and even Affiliate marketing. He then decided that blogging about it all would give people the skills, knowledge and apps to get up and running (while making a little extra on the side). After a few months he realised it was quite lucrative and decided to work his ass off making it a bit more than just a hobby!
