If you have ever thought of making money online, you may have probably considered affiliate marketing at least once. There are lots of affiliate marketing programs out there and it can be overwhelming when it comes to choosing one.
But the first step to making a choice is reviewing the available options. This article reviews one of the popular affiliate marketing programs; Partner with Anthony (PWA). By the end of this article, you will know if worth any attention or investment.
Now, I need to be frank with you. I have been making money online for over 20 years, and I have major concerns with the Partner With Anthony business model.
My main concern is this: Since you only make money by selling someone else’s product, the product owners may not pay you. They may change their commission structure. They may remove their products from the market. I have PERSONALLY had all these things happen. Instead, learn a business model that puts you in total control. You keep all the profits and you own all the products. And it takes less time to setup than it does to go through the Partner With Anthony program. It uses a loophole in the google maps system to get you autopilot monthly payments. Video Here.
My own teenage kids even make money with this business model!
Here’s a video of my daughter’s business using this :
OK but enough about me and my daughter, lets talk about Partner With Anthony.
Who is the Creator behind Partner with Anthony?
As the name of the program already suggests, the program was created by Anthony Morrison who started learning about Internet marketing while he was in college. He was motivated to make money when his father lost millions of dollars of investments to Worldcom due to fraud.
Their financial situation changed quickly and he figured he will need to start a side hustle to make ends meet. He started dropshipping auto parts. His business became successful quickly since this type of business was not popular then.
He started making a profit of about $50K per month. That saved his family from their bankrupt situation. He moved on to become an affiliate marketer for credit companies. That also became successful and soon he had people coming to him for lessons on how to start an affiliate marketing business.
He taught his brother Adrian Morrison and his roommate and they were also successful after following his systematic approach. He realized the power of imparting knowledge and he scaled that into an info publishing business. After sometime, he started PWA.
What is Partner with Anthony?
This is an affiliate training course that guides you to set up an affiliate marketing business. But that is not all, you become an affiliate partner for PWA and you earn commissions when you sell the program to others.
Thus, you get trained to sell PWA to earn commisions.
How Does the Program Work?
The program has 14 sessions and each session contains a series of training videos that are designed to answer your affiliate questions. The lessons are available via drip feed. Thus, the next lesson will only be released to you 24 hours after you complete the current one.
Some topics covered include copywriting, email marketing, and Facebook Ads. You will learn how to use sales funnels to market PWA and drive traffic to these affiliate funnels.
Anthony recommends tools such as Click Funnels to set up your affiliate marketing system. When you follow all guidance and invest in all the things he recommends, you will get an affiliate link that you can share with your audience.
When they purchase the PWA course, you will get a percentage of the profit.
What is the Cost of Partner with Anthony?
There are two payment options; you can opt for a monthly plan which costs $7 or the lifetime access plan which costs $97. But you need to set some money aside for some of the tools you will need.
ClickFunnels costs a minimum of $97 per month and you will need it to create your sales funnels. If you want to track clicks and conversions on your pages, you need to invest at least $19.99 per month into BuildRedirects.
There is also Aweber for collecting emails and the pricing starts at $19 per month. Some of these are optional but if you want to start making decent money, you will need them.
Anthony also has some upsells; Digital Marketing Mastermind and M Inside Newsletter. The Mastermind is a membership program that costs $69.95 per year and offers extensive training in marketing. The newsletter also provides guidance to optimize your campaigns and it costs $9.95 per month.
If you want to earn a higher commission percentage, you need to upgrade to the PWA ambassadorial program which will allow you to earn 70% commission instead of the usual 50%. This program costs $1497.
Apart from getting free traffic on social media, SEO, and word of mouth, PWA recommends solo ads and you can only access them via his Fast Traffic Source. The solo ads cost $0.73 to $0.85 per click.
Fortunately, there is a 30-day money-back guarantee so if you are not satisfied with the program, you can request a refund within the first 30 days and you will receive a full refund whether you chose the monthly or lifetime option.
For the PWA Ambassadorial Program and the Fast Traffic Source, you have the option of canceling it within the first 3 days after that, all sales are final.
All you need to do is to send an email to the company and your refund will be processed in under 24 hours.
Should You Invest in Partner with Anthony?
There is no doubt that Anthony can provide some helpful information in his training. If you can learn all that for $7, it is worth it. But the problem starts when you are hit with a lot of unexpected bills. As mentioned earlier, you need to pay for tools to run a successful business.
They do not also offer any form of support to members. Once you sign up, you are on your own.
Another problem is that the entire program sounds like an MLM and you can only make money by recruiting other people into the program. Even with that, it’s difficult to make a decent income. Although you can use the knowledge you receive to sell other products that have an affiliate system, most of your investment will already be targeted toward this program.
Finally, the program does not have positive reviews. One review talked about how you start by paying $7 which is super low but then you will end up paying so much more at the end of the month and the bills continue to increase. Another person talked about how the company refused to pay her the commissions even after earning more than $50.
The bottom line is, it is not worth it. It seems the $7 is meant to draw you in so that you can pay more and it is very difficult to make enough to recover your investments. Hope this helps you make your decision!
