Make $300-$3000 a Month In Passive Income?

by on March 19, 2015 · 12 comments

That’s a pretty bold subject line, but that is what Andrew Hansen claims you can make following his program Forever Affiliate.

He is a very successful affiliate marketer that is living a “location independent” lifestyle.  Which just basically means he’s living the dream.  Since he makes his $$ online, he can live and work from anywhere.  Sounds great to me!

The Forever Affiliate program is great because all of the information is geared towards how to make $$ online right now, given all of the major updates that Google made to their ranking algorithms over the last few years.

Andrew’s program goes into detail on how to adapt and make $$ under the new rules of the game and he says that if you follow the rules and are just starting out in affiliate marketing now, you may actually find it easier to make $$ online.

The Forever Affiliate program goes into detail on exactly how to make $$ online through Affiliate Marketing.  For anyone new to the concept, that just means that you promote the products of others and if they result in a sale, you’ll get a commission.  In my experience, that is the best way to make $ online with very little of your own money up front.

The program has a full money-back guarantee and he even says that he will give you $100 out of his pocket if the program does not work for you.  He’s been doing this successfully for over 7 years, so I believe he would make good on that promise.

This is not a fluff course with generalizations and theory. This program will show you everything from start to finish, from the initial steps on finding the right products to promote, to building your own website, creating content, helping your site build up traffic and finally achieving your first affiliate sales.  All contained in a series of excellent videos that provide fully detailed, step-by-step instructions.

No stone was left unturned. I learned a ton of information I had not found anywhere else and it has completely changed the way I will be creating niche/mini sites going forward.

One specific example I just learned is that during the first month after setting up your site, you need to be careful NOT to do too much promotion and link building.  That goes directly against most of the readily available, free information online. 

He goes into very specific detail on how many links you want to build in the first month, what kind of links those should be and how to go about getting them in a white hat, very conservative way.

What NOT to do is just as important as what TO do.  Otherwise you can very easily get penalized by the current Google algorithms and it very important to do all you can to not have that happen. 

That is just one tiny example of the type of actionable information contained in the program that I haven’t come across anywhere else.

As always, thanks for stopping by and best of luck with all of your niche website projects!

That sounds like a great program. I’m familiar with Andrew’s work from when he created “Niche Marketing on Crack” in I think 2007 or 2008. He really knows his stuff. I will have to check this out. Thanks for sharing.

You’re welcome! It really is a great program. I’m about 4-5 weeks in and it is so worth it. I’m learning a bunch and I’m seeing the traffic from organic Google search results start to trickle in. Looking forward to sharing the results as I get more into it and expand out from just the one initial site I’m concentrating on to start with. Thanks for the comment.

I’m thinking about trying out the program. I’m about to get out of debt. However, my dad and I lost our jobs and I’m thinking about working at home. I have tried many other affiliate marketing programs that gurus offered, but none of them worked. Will this work?


Chris April 29, 2013 at 6:13 pm

Thanks for the comment Arturo! This is a great program and is really the first one I’ve found that tells you exactly what to do and how to do it, rather than just providing general advice to follow.

I’m currently focusing on one particular site/product to get the process down first, but your best chance of making sales is to develop multiple sites, one after another. The more you have, the more diversified you will be and the better the odds!

If you have any specific questions, please don’t hesitate to ask and good luck!

Hi! I’ve been interested in Forever Affiliate after listening to Mark Mason’s podcast. I may have to check it out. I’m also interested in Internet Business Mastery’s Microsite Profits course. Do you know anything about that one, I’m curious?

Hi Crystal! Thanks for the comment! And I just noticed you subscribed via email recently as well, much appreciated. I will forward you my free keyword brain storming guide today as a way to say thanks!

Back to your question. Short answer is no, I don’t have specific experience with the Microsite Profits course. However, I just checked out their sales page and read some reviews and it sounds like it is very similar to Forever Affiliate, with a focus on utilizing Google Adsense as opposed to being an affiliate for specific products.

I listen to the IBM podcasts often and know they are great guys, so I think either course would be a good one. I think it is more a matter of personal preference and how much you want to spend.

Forever Affiliate is $97 and Micro-Site Profits looks like it is $397.

For me personally, I find that I enjoy the idea of affiliate marketing a bit more than AdSense. I have utilized AdSense on a personal blog and a few test sites and still haven’t hit the $100 payment threshold after 2 years time. Then again, I haven’t taken any courses like Micro-Site Profits on how best to profit from AdSense. I have had several sales of different affiliate products and I like the idea of the larger payout potential as opposed to the usually pennies per click for AdSense.

Hope that helps! And by the way, nice site. Really like the design/layout!

Thanks for the reply Chris! I think I’d rather invest $97 than $397 to get a good site up and going and if AdSense can contribute that would be great too. I would rather have multiple opportunities for income. I look forward to your future posts on the affiliate sites. Thanks for the site compliment – I’m new to all this. I didn’t even know what WordPress was 3 months ago – now I’m hooked ;o).

Hi Chris,

I know you wrote this post quite a while ago now. This article really intrigued me and I just wanted to ask how your affiliate marketing site(s) is/are now that you are well over a year into having started it? How long did it take for your to make good headway and how have you found the upkeep of them?

Grateful for all your advice on this site by the way! 🙂


Chris August 30, 2014 at 8:40 pm

Hey Anna, thanks for the comment and kinds words, glad to have you here!

I’ve had success with one site and another didn’t pan out. I’m still trying different techniques to get some more traffic and sales for the profitable site.

It took about 3-4 months for rankings and traffic to stabilize initially and 3 more months until I started to get sales, so about 7 months total.

Here are several posts that contain further details/updates, let me know if you have any other questions!

I hope this works for me. I’ve been looking for ways to make a passive income and somehow I still can’t reach the figures I wanted or expected. I might try it again with these tips of yours.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Nora,

Thanks for the comment and I wish you success with the new information and with all of your niche site projects in 2015!
