    Hi Folks,

    I just launched a course on Udemy titled - 'complete guide to building amazon affiliate sites'.

    It covers just about everything you would need to know about building amazon affiliate sites.

    Niche Research
    Keyword Research
    Site structure - siloed and niche sites
    Basics of WordPress
    Site speed
    Basics of SEO
    Advanced on page SEO

    There's a good deal of material about niche research and keyword research that I believe does not exist elsewhere - or will be pretty hard to find.

    If you are just starting out or have not built amazon affiliate sites that are earning a few $100 a month, you are certain to learn a lot of stuff here.

    On the other hand, if you are an affiliate marketer who's already earning $10k or more a month, there may not be anything new that you can learn here.

    There are a total of 238 lectures, 16.5 hours of video. All of the videos have subtitles.

    The only thing I do not touch upon here is how to install WordPress :)

    So if you can buy a domain and install WordPress and have not had success with building amazon affiliate sites so far, this may just be the solution you are looking for.

    Note: The approach discussed here is 100% white hat. It does not depend on loopholes or methods that work today and are gone tomorrow.

    The course is priced at $20 and can be accessed here...

    For $20 the content you get is insane, if you are new IM or want to get started in Amazon this is a great place to start for minimal investment.

    238 high quality videos for $20... While obviously I didn't view them all, the ones I did were very good.

    Excellent product.

    The table of contents that you included honestly looks fantastic and, for $20, it is insane.

    I think you should give out review copies here, it won't really cost you much and give out in large numbers, it will surely help at udemy as well. Paste the reviews placed at udemy here so people know.

    Good luck to your first BST, mine is also near approval :)

    This is a no brainer for the money.
    $50 is a steal, $20 is too cheap.

    There is so much content in here for the price this is a great deal.

    What I admire is the spoken commentary isn't a native English speaker, but to compensate there's subtitles.

    Compared to some Udemy courses I have seen, this stands head & shoulders above them.

    I am only part way through this wonderful course, but it's got and kept my attention.

    I bought the course. I usually skip such courses by BHW members as they are all crap and try to sell you even more crap, but this one was surprisingly good.
    My only suggestion is to raise the cost because $20 is too little for an in depth guide such as this one.

    This course outline is too much and will take days to assimilate.

    Good luck, the course is more than its priced.

    if question came to your mind , that info in that course can't get for free from the internet ?! the answer is yes ! but keep in mind you need at least 3 months of serious researching and a lot of hours reading and testing .... to reach the net result in that course ...... $20 will save you a lot of time and efforts ........
    this course Recommended for newbies ........
