Earnest Affiliate, Overview


This program was developed by Johnny FD a “digital nomad”.  What exactly does that mean?  Well a digital nomad is a person who works online and can travel or move anywhere they want at any time they want.  The claim is that you may build a profitable blog or website, starting today.  Now for the question I always have to ask, “Is Earnest Affiliate a legit or is a scam?”

 

The Good and the Bad


Good

Is Earnest Affiliate a ScamThis program is packed full of videos and has a total of 8 modules.  There is a good intro video once you become a member.  The video reminds you that you can access any of the modules at any time you want and you can view each video as many times as you want.  The best part about it is he tells you up front.  This is not a get rich quick scheme.  You will have to do some work in order to see a progress and become successful.  He also says if you thought this was going to be quick and a way to take short cuts he will be happy to refund your money right away.  He only wants honest people to go through his system.

Throughout the course he focuses only on white hat ways of promotion and writing.  He is very detailed not missing a step along the way.  There are great examples of what to do and how to do it.  This course was made with the true beginner in mind.  Even with the beginner in mind there are many things he discusses that are good reminders.  So it is a good idea to go through each video and take notes.

Earnest Affiliate Johnny FDThere is a fairly active forum community.  It is a new program so it is growing.  As the community grows it will become more active.  The best part of the community is Johnny is consistently involved with answering peoples questions and is very active.  You can easily reach the owner and he is very responsive.

Also while the community is growing, Johnny is adding additional modules and lessons.  It will take time but over a lifetime this site will be amazing, in my opinion.  This is great, while it is a membership site, you don’t pay a monthly membership fee.  It is a lifetime membership so you will always have access to the new material as it is introduced.Is Earnest Affiliate Legit

 

Bad

It is a brand new community so it may go through some growing pains.  That is okay though.  Over time the value of it will grow.  This program is set up for people who know very little about blogging or websites.  So it would not be very good, at least not yet, for the more experienced person.  My guess is that over time, Johnny will be adding additional sections that will help the more experienced person as the site experience grows.

This is really not a big deal, but there are other fees associated with the product.  You will need to get hosting as well as buy a domain.  He does discuss you can go through a free process like blogger, but it is better to own your domain.  He does give you links to do so and get discounts, of course they are affiliate links but he is up front and honest about that.  It is really hard not to like Johnny.does earnest affiliate work

 

Customer Support


Johnny himself answers most of the questions.  I love it when I can talk directly with the owner!  He is very personable and likes to guide people to become successful.  I believe his personal touch can be felt in the entire system as well as the quick and responsive customer support.

 

Who is Earnest Affiliate For?


Right now as of Aug 20015 the program is set up for beginners in the internet marketing realm.  As I stated earlier I am sure that the program will develop and progress to include more complex and advanced information on it.  It is very easy to follow and the steps are truly laid out for anyone to easily follow.  I am sure Johnny himself will help out with any more advanced question you may have as he has years of experience.

how much does it cost

Earnest Affiliate Price


There is a onetime fee of $197.00.  While this seems a bit high, I think the value is definitely there.  Furthermore it is a lifetime membership.  I wish there was a free trial, but I have had a chance to lift the curtain and see what is there.  It is definitely one of the best programs out there for the price.

 

My Final Opinion of Earnest Affiliate


I think you can tell by now what my thoughts are on this product.  It is a winner for the beginner.  The lifetime membership is great.  Other programs will take you a while to get to the $197 but you will soon pass that cost and continue to pay for the membership.  The information, right now is for any beginner and you will learn the “earnest way” of building an online business.  Please check out the sales page here.

      Dannyboy,

      Thank you for your comment and sharing my site with others. Unfortunately the internet is a virtual minefield (pun intended). I just got tired of finding all the scams out there, I thought it would be nice to try and help some others out.

      Earnest Affiliate is not one of those scams by any means. It is one that is honest, just like its name implies. I really like Johnny. I never met him before I found his product and sent him an email and I think he has started something really special.

      I am glad you found my site useful and please let me know how it goes.

    $197 for a lifetime membership? It would be good to have the option of paying monthly instead. Apart from that, this looks like it could be pretty good. If I hadn’t found Wealthy Affiliate then this could have been a good alternative to get me started in earning money online.

    But Earnest Affiliate, what a strange name! It sounds a bit….I’m not sure how to put it really. But it doesn’t really have the same ring to it as many of these earn money online sites.

    Anyway, the fact that this is a new community means that we should be a bit cautious. It will be interesting to see how it evolves over time.

      Wealthy affiliate is a great place but there is a monthly or yearly cost that is more than a lifetime membership at Earnest Affiliate. The price really is not expensive for the value you receive. Overall it is a good program and a good place to start. Nothing that is taught in the program will hurt you in anyway with rankings and making a successful online business.

      Thank you for your comment. I found Wealthy Affiliate first as well. I am very happy with paying the monthly fee for the premium membership. It is a great value as well. That is why it is my number one recommendation. Overall both are great programs.

      Thank you again.

    If you have spent any considerable amount of time researching Wealthy Affiliate you might have realized there are virtually no bad reviews about WA online. Whenever you think of customer s rant and feedback you realize that unhappu customers are a lot more tempted to leave a bad review online than the satisfied once.

      Tony,
      Thank you for your comment about WA. You are correct, there are very few complaints. That is just one of the many reasons why it is my number one recommendation. I am sure you have seen from my site I dont give great reviews to make sales. I give reviews to help people avoid scams and get good deals.
      Let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
      Best of luck to you.

    Hi!
    This sounds interesting.
    It reminds me a lot of Wealthy Affiliate and if Johnny follows in that format he will do nothing but become a force in this business.
    I love the white hat and the one-time member for life fee.
    I wish others would be so willing to refund your money as Johnny is.
    I am very impressed with this so far and would love to hear some feedback from others!

      Shawn,

      Thanks for the comment. Yeah it really is a good program and I agree with you that if he continues to build it, he will be very successful.

      The name of the program is well done as it reflects his attitude about the process.

      The overall idea with a lifetime membership is a great one.

      Thank you again for your comment.

    Earnest Affiliate looks like it is excellent for the beginner. I have been looking around for a way to learn affiliate marketing and this looks like what I need. The price is reasonable particularly as it is for a lifetime. Is there personal support from the owner or the community?

    From my research domain hosting can be expensive.

    I am also not sure what ‘white hat’ and ‘black hat’ are.

      Christine,

      It is a great place to get started as well as the owner does personally support you. The community is growing but it is still in its infancy.

      Domain hosting does not have to be expensive. You can check out my review of Bluehost here to see what I mean.

      White hat is the honest above board way of gaining rankings and getting traffic to your site. Black hat is a little sketchy. Blackhat skirts what is ethical and trys to take advantage of the system. White hat is longer lived and black hat will eventually be caught and penilized.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Marc, thank you for being honest and sincere about Earnest Affiliate. I came across is business a couple of months ago, but did not grasp the idea fully. Your review shed a different light on my understanding, and I thank you for the simplicity.

    When you look at the value, you are getting, $197.00 is a very low price. The idea of the owner getting involve and answering members questions within the community is huge. With most businesses you never get to interact with the owners.

    I will take a second look at this business and get back to you if I need further clarification, or if I have any questions. Feel free to add to this article at any time, cause I will be referring to it from time to time. Good luck with all your aspirations.

    Cheers,
    Bishop
