The Affiliate Code
Welcome to my uncensored complete review of "The Affiliate Code" by Michael Jones. And to
prove that I actually bought it and used it, here's a copy of my receipt:
Please note that this is a REVIEW, if you are looking for the official "The Affiliate Code"
website, click here.
The reason I'm writing this review is two fold:
1) I love internet marketing and am a product junkie, so I buy everything that comes out to test it
to see how it works.
2) I see all kinds of "review" sites out there and there's two things in common with almost all of
them...1 - they NEVER show proof that they actually bought and used the product & 2- they
NEVER give a bad review.
The reason for that is they are lazy internet marketers that take pre-done materials from the
affiliate area and slap it up on a page, or they just cut & paste sales copy from the product
owner's website and call it a "review".
I'm just so sick & tired of all that crap! And I'm not going to play that game...
Here you'll find the good, the bad, and the ugly of every single internet marketing product out
there, so if you can't handle all sides to the story, I suggest you leave this site now.
Ok so now I'll step off my soapbox and get into the meat of this product!
Let's talk about what's wrong with this product first.
The first thing that kind put me off about this product is the way that Michael talks. He has a
very condescending voice and goes third person quite frequently which made it hard for me to go
through this product because it's a 40 video product. There is no ebook as part of this...
I also had a big qualm with this product because Michael espouses about the importance of
building a list and he has a section on how to set up an autoresponder.
He positioned this product as showing ways to drive massive FREE traffic to your site that will
build your list and make you money, but when you get to the traffic generation section, the
methods he unveils are all direct linking! He doesn't show anything about building a list...
Which leads to the next issue that I have with this product - I tested the free traffic methods
exactly as positioned in this product and did not gain a massive flood of traffic. So I was
extremely disappointed in this.
The Affiliate Code is geared toward someone just getting started online who doesn't want
to spend any money at all.
To make this system work, it will require many, many hours of tedious labor!
Those were the big beefs that I have with this product. So in the spirit of fairness and balance,
let's talk about the good points.

My favorite part of this course was the affiliate evaluator spreadsheet. I'm a technical guy who
likes to turn everything into a science and this tool that Michael provides makes it very easy to
decide whether to promote a product or not.
It literally has saved me hundreds of dollars, if not thousands just from AVOIDING products I
otherwise would have promoted! Now I am a bit more advanced internet marketer, so this alone
was worth the cost of admission for this product.
I also enjoyed the copywriting section of the course. It's pretty rare to see any internet marketing
product that teaches copywriting, let alone including that level of detail in a $67 product. I've
taken many different courses on copywriting including one that was $1400!
This part makes the course worth well over $67.
Michael does a great job of teaching tracking of your efforts, which is another piece missing
from most internet marketing products. In my opinion, tracking is what separates the winners
from the losers in this business.
Again, this section is extremely valuable and needed for the newbie just getting started.
My final verdict?
If you can get past Michael's tone of voice and going third person, and you are just getting
started with affiliate marketing, there are several good nuggets to be had with this product.
What you are going to find if you are new to internet marketing is that no one single course or
product will have it all for you. You are going to have to get bits and pieces from all over the
place and put them together like a puzzle.
And of course if you are already succeeding online, there is absolutely NO reason to purchase
this product unless you are reverse engineering it...

P.S. I am an affiliate marketer myself, so yes, the links on this page are my affiliate links! I don't
care if you buy through me or not, but I hope you enjoy a real, honest review and can appreciate
