What is The Super Affiliate Network?

the super affiliate network package

The Super Affiliate Network is a video training course and community teaching people about setting up their own profitable affiliate marketing business.

It has created quite a lot of buzz around the internet because it is the brain child of Misha Wilson, who is known as the youngest and fastest growing traffic and conversion expert on the Internet.

If you haven't heard of this guy, you can read more about him on his website here.

Basically, he is a very young and successful multi-million internet marketer today and he achieved his success through affiliate marketing.

The Super Affiliate Network is the company that he started to help people achieve success in the same way as he did.

Having such a good background and successful founder, SAN should be a pretty good program theoretically, right?

But wait, don't come to conclusion just yet. Let me reveal to you what to expect if you are to join this program first.

I'll be sharing with you my personal view on SAN later on. In fact, I found out that The Super Affiliate Network has signs of a pyramid scheme. Read on and I'll prove it to you!

The Super Affiliate Network Product Line

Basically, SAN's product line is all about membership, courses and upsell. Their membership can be classified into 3 main categories.

1. SAN Basic Membership ($47/month):

This Basic Membership's main focus is on a 3-week bootcamp course that focuses on the basics of affiliate marketing. They'll cover a wide range of topics include:

  • Mindset
  • Psychology
  • Email Marketing
  • List Building
  • Selling
  • Automation

This is a course that has 21 modules, which means you need to complete 1 module per day in these 3 weeks.

Once you join their program, you'll be assigned with a coach to guide you along. This is pretty good for complete newbies.

After every module, there will be a quiz for you to complete and you'll need to discuss with your coach before he or she will unlock the next module for you to make sure you understand all the details in each step.

Pricing + Upsell:

The normal price for this Basic Membership is $47/month with a $1 30-day trial. However, you can save $10 every month if you skip the $1 trial. This means that starting from the first month you'll be paying $37/month until you cancel.

However, immediately after you've purchased their Basic Membership, they'll be selling to you 2 more upsells - "Solo Ad Success Formula" and "Super Affiliate Monthly Newsletter".

Solo Ad Success Formula is an in-depth course on email marketing strategies that charges a $97 one-time fee for new members. (But I thought they will be covering Email marketing in the Basic Membership already?)

Super Affiliate Monthly Newsletter is a monthly video update from Misha Wilson showing things that are currently working for Misha himself and how to apply it. This cost a $47 one-time fee.

2. SAN Pro Membership ($2,497 One-time fee):

This is the membership for their more advanced training, support and help. This is for people who want to scale up their business with better marketing funnels, sales letter, strategies, etc.

You'll have access to monthly and weekly coaching as well as private Facebook Group for further support and mastermind.

3. Maui Intensive Mentoring ($12,497 One-time fee):

This is an exclusive 4-day mastermind event at Maui where you can work directly with Misha's team to help build your personal marketing funnels.

So far, this may seem like a pretty good program. But look at the price. And I'm going to reveal to you the ugly part of this program very soon in the pros & cons section below!

Pros & Cons

The Good

1. $1 Trial

I think this requires no further explanation. Being able to try the system at $1 is a pretty good offer.

2. 30-Day "Better Than Money Back" Guarantee

the super affiliate network refund policy

If you are not satisfied with the program within 30 days, they'll not just refund you but give you $100 for "wasting your time". This is for Basic Membership.

For PRO Membership, they'll give you $1,000 for "wasting your time".

This may sound very appealing and convincing but there are some criteria you need to know. For example, you need to complete all courses and have at least 3 calls with your designated coach.

The Super Affiliate Network Refund Policy

You check read their refund policy carefully before diving into this program. But anyway, having such refund policy in place is still a good feature.

3. Very Detailed Step-by-Step Course

The Super Affiliate Network's video course are professionally recorded and their content are clear and detailed. They've even arranged them into different days of homework to complete so it makes things very clear especially for beginners to follow along.

4. Misha Wilson is a Real Person

As we all know, there are a lot of scam programs or companies out there that are unwilling to show their real faces to the public. Some hire actors while some simply hide their team and founders completely. All these are indications of a scam..

But in the case of SAN, its founder Misha Wilson is a real person who has achieved success that is known to the public. The fact that they are transparent about their founder and team is a good sign that this company is at least not a scam.

I'm sure Misha Wilson wouldn't want to risk his own reputation by creating scam products, right?


The Bad

1. Has Features of a Pyramid Scheme?!

Despite SAN has quite a lot of in-depth training, their main focus is to help its members to promote SAN membership and recruit more people into the system.

Also, you can only earn commission from the products or membership level you have personally purchased.

For example, if you're a SAN Basic Member and someone joins SAN to become a PRO Member through your affiliate link, you won't be able to earn any commission from this PRO Membership upgrade simply because you're not a PRO Member yourself.

I think that's just the strategy they are using to encourage more people to keep upgrading their membership and pay them more money. They claim that the higher your membership level the more commission you can earn. To me, this seems like a scam.

Although they do provide legit training and support, these are some signs of a pyramid scheme.

Take a look at the following video and you'll find out the price and commission for different membership levels:

In fact, this type of program is not uncommon. Take a look at Six Figure Mentors, Digital Altitude, Legendary Marketer and MOBE.

They all have very similar system...

  • High-ticket membership products
  • Focus on promoting themselves
  • Require members to pay expensive membership cost in order to be qualified for commission

I'm not saying they are scams but you should really think twice before joining any of these programs, including The Super Affiliate Network.

My top recommended platform, Wealthy Affiliate, can get started for Free and you can build your own online business in any niche you want. You're not restricted to only promote themselves.

2. Only Focus on Email Marketing (NO Website?!)

This is another huge concern I have. The Super Affiliate Network training focuses mainly on generating traffic via Solo Ad and making affiliate sales via Email Marketing.

These methods are legit and effective if you do it correctly but they totally missed out on building an authority website and generating free organic traffic.

In fact, Solo Ad can be very expensive and ineffective depending on the email list you target.

SAN doesn't have a proper system and technology in place for people to easily build and host their websites.

3. Courses are Locked

Like I've said above, the courses are locked. Each course will only be unlocked after you've successfully complete the quiz from the previous course and contacted your coach.

This prevents beginners from going too fast and skip the necessary details but for people with some experience, this will be very restrictive and annoying that you'll hit a roadblock everything.

The feeling is just not good. I'm sure many members will have the same feeling as me.

4. Pretty Expensive

The Basic Membership is not expensive and you can have the $1 trial. The expensive part comes after you've joined their platform. They'll be offering you upsells straightaway. And the price for PRO membership and Maui program is just not affordable for many people, especially beginners.

Not only that, the Solo Ad you'll be using in their training may also cost quite a lot of money like I've mentioned.

Overall, I just feel that this is pretty expensive and you're limited to use their resource and promote their products.

P.S. This program that has enabled me to generate a 4-Figure Monthly Passive Income at just 21 years old is FREE to get started and only cost $49/month fee to go full-time!

Is The Super Affiliate Network a Scam?

The Super Affiliate Network by Misha Wilson is not a scam because they have quite a lot of legitimate training resources and support.

But I just don't like their "pyramid scheme features" and their total lack of emphasis on building websites and Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

I'm sure you don't want to spend a couple thousand dollars just to be qualified to promote their products, right?

How I Make a Living Online...

I've personally created a 4-Figure Monthly Passive Income Stream and become financially independent at just 21 years old without any College degree or working experience!

Through my own hard work, I went from a broke restaurant waiter to living my dream laptop lifestyle in less than a year's time...

I think of the many (may be in the 100s) reviews I’ve accessed there has been maybe two that did not recommend WF. I must admit, it is suspicious in regard to the promotion of WF. Is part of their training for building a list to write reviews?

I joined WF many years ago. I’ve not done anything with it. Usual reasons: shiney objects, quick money etc. My question: How long, typically, does it take to break even with the monthly cost? You may be thinking this question is silly if I’m asking for earning such a low monthly income. Remember, the monthly payments accumulate; the longer it takes, the larger the investment becomes. Please bear with me; part of my hesitation in participation is my experience with other income opportunities. There always seems to be a step in the training or instructions where I encounter a task that I don’t know how to do. Unfortunately, the exchange of emails becomes unacceptably long. I think it might be my fault that it takes so long because of my lack of knowledge/training.

Please respond.
Kind regards,
Peter

    WF? Or are you talking about WA?

Why is it WHENEVER I search for reviews on any program, not just Super Affiliate Network, and read a bad one it is from someone like you who will bad mouth the program in order to pitch Wealthy Affiliate? You say SAN is not good because members only get to promote SAN yet here you are pitching WA! If WA is so good, and I believe it probably is, and much money can be made developing niche websites and getting training, why do you need to plug WA to earn a commission if you’re earning so much? Rather hypocritical of you.

    I respect your opinion. Just so that you know Wealthy Affiliate’s main training focuses on teaching people how to start and build your own niche website.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions, I came across SAN because it was linked under one of my favorite affiliate marketing YouTubers video. Now I’ve lost all trust in that YouTuber for promoting this junk. You’re doing a great job exposing these scammy programs.

Dude, I just checked out The Super Affiliate Network and I do have to agree with you.

I think it is best to stay away from these types of systems because their have been a lot of shutdowns recently (Digital Altitude and MOBE).

These guys or Legendary Marketer are next for sure.

Wealthy Affiliate has stood the test of time, but I am really enjoying the training at 4 Percent Group. It’s a legit system that has actually just changed to be not a business opportunity but a IM training program primarily.

    Jerry Huang - July 24, 2018

    Yup, totally agree with you. There are simply too many programs out there trying to act like the best platform to help beginners yet they’re just sucking money out of their pockets.

    Like you’ve said, Digital Altitude & MOBE are real life examples!

I completed the free training with Super Affiliate Network and even had a couple of coaching sessions. In fact, I almost paid the โ€˜justโ€™ under USD$3000 to upgrade but was hesitant for 2 reasons: (1) I didnโ€™t really feel I was accomplishing anything and (2) I felt the only way I would get ahead was to promote their products.

I accidentally stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate and canโ€™t believe the amount of stuff I have learned in 2.5 months – from creating my own website to actually being affiliated with 3 companies in my niche. I am learning every day without paying the big bucks. For me itโ€™s WA all the way!

    Awesome work Mary!

    I’m glad you didn’t fall for Super Affiliate Network and actually found Wealthy Affiliate. Indeed, there are a lot of seemingly great programs online but if you look closer, you’ll find out that all you’ll be doing is to promote the companies’ own membership/products.

    After reviewing so many of them, from to top of my head, I can give quite a lot of examples of such companies like Digital Altitude, Six Figure Mentors and Yoonla.

    So far, I can’t find any other programs like Wealthy Affiliate where they recommend you to build your own online business in any niche of your choice and they help you to do so. Most companies only focus on promoting themselves despite they may have great training resources.

    Yes, there are some similar programs like Solo Build It. However, all these programs have their own limitations and when compare to WA, they still fall short unfortunately.

    Wow Mary Ann…I’m just about to have my first call with my coach tomorrow (after being introduced to the Pro package). So glad I checked this review, even though your post is older I’m sure that it still applies.

A decent review, simply for the fact of not just labelling it a scam, but I must say you’re misinformed on a couple of things…

1. You are actually given training on how to build an authority website and online presence, including website layout, call to actions, blog content, etc.

2. The Solo Ad Success Formula teaches you traffic specifically. Email marketing is covered in the basic training.

Those misconceptions probably would have been cleared up by going through all the training. The training you get at Basic level is the clearest and most concise training I’ve found on the internet, and I’ve been through quite a few courses.

You also get the community aspect (which, as a WA member, I’m sure you’re familiar with paying for), ongoing coaching, and more. It’s much more than just paying to be an affiliate for them.

Hi, thanks for the detailed layout of the SAN program. I cannot really trust this thing.

Firstly, why would I have to pay for a training that takes 3 weeks a monthly fee? I would be finished with the training before the first month was over and pay the rest for what? For being able to be affiliate partner?

This is an expensive affiliate program and if you say there isn’t even a website hosting involved, no thanks.
This guy is making a lot of money that’s true but it seems to be not enough yet.

    Haha thanks Stefan! Thanks for the interesting comment ๐Ÿ™‚
    I definitely won’t pay to become an affiliate as well!

It is good to know that this program is legit because of what you said. But the upsell part is not good at all because it is amazing of the amount of money you may eventually spend in trying to make money.

Reply
    Jerry Huang - January 24, 2018

    Hey Norman,
    Upsell is one issue. But I feel that the restrictive system is a bigger problem because its members are kind of being forced to only promote SAN products to make money. Also, they’ll need to upgrade to higher membership level in order to get more commission. That’s scammy!

Great review. It is very helpful and will definitely help in keeping a lot of people from making the mistake of spending their time and money on something that does not offer the best options available for them.
