I didn't expect as much 'how to' to be spelled out for me in the book, but it was helpful. I got some new ideas and was inspired to take a new look at what I'd been doing on my own blog: Savvy Sleuth.
Being a Kindle author myself (I wrote Simple Guide to Over-the-Air Free TV) I can appreciate the work that Shawn put into his book. I appreciate the links to more info and clear explanations of how it's done. Overall, a very good book for anyone looking to learn how to use affiliate marketing sources and increase their passive income.
The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is that I have some issues with some of the suggestions. For example, I would never recommend GoDaddy. I used them for years, because they were "good enough". But even ignoring all the politics / privacy / ethics issues, I've simply found too many times that they do weird, non-standard things, plus the fact that I got sick of being constantly upsold other services when I'm just trying to manage my stuff. There are numerous better options, at better prices, with better service. Frankly, while at a later date you may want to have your domains and your hosting separate, for newbies it's a LOT easier to just get them both at the same place...definitely saves a couple of steps and may even save you some money.
For a WordPress theme, Thesis is decent, but it's also $87 for the basic theme, and that's $87 more you have to make before you start turning a profit. There are tons of great free themes available. I'm personally a big fan of Atahualpa, which is the most downloaded free theme. It's particularly great because you don't have to edit theme files to put in custom CSS, or even to create your own widget areas. Yeah -- I know that's Greek to the target audience for this book, but trust me, it will become very relevant very quickly. As far as WordPress themes -- save your money until you're really sure you need to spend it.
A couple of notable missing promotional tools are Empire Avenue and Triberr. These have become absolute essentials for me and some of my clients. They're free, and very effective.
So, all in all -- a great step-by-step guide for newbies to get started, but don't take it as gospel. If you decide to join the world of affiliate marketing, plan on becoming an information sponge -- you never stop learning.
To my surprise there were helpful tips for both beginner and intermediate affiliate marketers. I ended up bookmarking several pages and passages on my e-reader.
The book contains several practical tips that will help any beginner get started. The book isn't full of hype like so many books in this category. Shawn lays out a simple roadmap that anyone can follow.
If you're brand new to the affiliate game, or having a hard time getting through the initial stages of growing your business, I highly recommend this book.
In the book intro he tells experienced affiliates that this isn't for them, but I disagree. I've been an affiliate for over 5 years and still found some nuggets of gold that I didn't know - such as creative use of Facebook ads and some social media tools.
I was a little confused at first because some links in each Chapter take you to a protected member area on his site for is book. But then I realized that the area is free for book buyers. A short explanation re how the site and book work together would have helped in the beginning. Knowing Shawn he will add that soon :)
All in all this was an easy read with lots of real examples and pictures too. I have no hesitation in recommending Extra Money Answer to anyone interested in affiliate marketing - experienced or not.
5 thumbs up!
