Affiliate Project X
By Jamie Clarkson
Affiliate Project X, or "APX," is an ebook providing methods for earning income as an affiliate marketer on the internet. There are many such methods, techniques, products and services being touted as "the key" to earning big money online. The field of net marketing is rife with competition, each one trying to outdo another. APX is no different in this regard, and its author, Chris McNeeney, found his product breaking Clickbank records upon its release in October 2006. Shortly after its launch, Affiliate Project X was flying around countless internet marketing lists, blogs and forums. I myself received at least a half a dozen emails about APX from a number of internet marketers, including some of the better-known names.
Affiliate Project X does not pretend to be exhaustive in its methods and techniques. It is, in fact, rather short, cutting to the chase about various popular internet marketing methods. For example, the first technique in Project X is also the simplest, allowing you to be up and running in a fairly short time. Called "The Leech," this method requires you to have a website and a product such as an ebook, which you can get from affiliate databanks and which you then promote with a few targeted keywords in a pay-per-click advertising campaign. It is well known that information products such as ebooks, CDs, videos and audios are easier to sell and return good commissions. You could also apply this method to any other product and service, of course. With a profitable product and advertising campaign, experienced marketers - and even some clever "newbies," or people new to internet marketing - can and do rack up a significant amount of money. Anyone who has studied affiliate marketing for a while knows that fact. So what makes Project X any different? It is the way in which Chris lays out this technique, concisely and precisely, which makes it more readily understandable. The same can be said of the other methods in Affiliate Project X, including 'The Workhorse," which, as the name implies, requires somewhat more work.
There is some question about whether or not Affiliate Project X violates the terms of service of one of the major affiliate networks, Clickbank, because it recommends using bonuses and rebates. The book was poured over by Clickbank managers and, other than a short section that Chris excised upon request, was given the seal of approval for sale, which indicates that it does not break any rules. There is also a problem with the recommended manner for cloaking affiliate links, as the code sometimes does not work in placing the requisite cookies on the purchaser's computer, causing commissions to be lost. There does not seem to be an easy answer for that problem, and many affiliate marketers have continued to use "naked" affiliate URLs.
All in all, Affiliate Project X is a good and comprehensive overview of some the best methods and techniques used by experienced marketers in order to make money online with affiliate programs.
