Quick Summary of Affiliate Rebirth
Rating: 4 A solid introductory course to affiliate marketing.
The Good: In-depth videos and attached resources help you get started in affiliate marketing, select your niche products, choose relevant keywords, and input offers from affiliate networks.
The Bad: Some of the video presenters have thick accents that may be hard to decipher.The grammar and spelling in some of the videos needs cleanup.There is no forum for members to congregate and collaborate.It's doubtful you'll be making thousands of dollars each month just by implementing the discussed beginner strategies.
The Bottom Line: This is a great course for newbie affiliate marketers, but additional training and resources will be needed once these newbies know the basics.
Affiliate Rebirth Review
Affiliate Rebirth, which was just relaunched by Grigory Kononenko, Stefan Ciancio, and Shahnawaz Sadiquee, is a video training program for affiliate marketers that makes some bold claims about how much money you’ll earn by setting up websites. In essence, the program claims that you’ll make $3K-$5K/month by implementing its revolutionary affiliate marketing methods.
Supposedly, this program teaches you a completely different method for doing affiliate marketing, making over $1K/week, and not having to pay for traffic.
Yes, you heard right: According to Affiliate Rebirth’s creators, you will learn how to make a sizable passive income using free traffic-generation methods. You won’t even need to do any email or social media marketing.
Does Affiliate Rebirth live up to its hype? I bought this program at its advertised price of $17.70 to learn more.
Inside Affiliate Rebirth
Once my order went through, I found myself looking at the following:
For $47, Grigory will give you researched information on 10 niche sites you can build right now, complete with affiliate products, keywords, Amazon keywords, and competitor info. This upsell is called the Done-for-You Pack.
For another $47, Grigory will enable you to copy and paste his most successful niche sites, saving you the hassle of designing your sites and generating content for them. This upsell is called Affiliate Rebirth Elite $60k Case Studies Bundle.
The third upsell you see is this one, which Grigory says will provide you with secret link-building strategies for your niche sites. This upsell is priced at $27.
Once you get past these three upsells, you’re taken to your Affiliate Rebirth account area, which in my case was hosted by JVZoo. Here, you open up four modules of the following training videos:
Module 1: Niche Selection
Earnings proof (3:18)- In this introductory video, you see the kinds of web traffic that Grigory’s (and his colleagues’) niche websites are generating.
How to find a profitable niche (13:57)- You are taught how to spot great niches by perusing Amazon’s Full Stores and Best Sellers. You are also told to look at big websites and see which products they are pushing.
Criteria to access profitability (12:24)- Grigory goes through Google SERP results and advises duplicating their subject matter for eventual ranking of your content.
Basics of keyword research (6:59)- What are keywords and how do you select the best ones for traffic? Grigory goes through these questions and introduces head, body and long-tail keywords.
Buying intent keywords (6:47)- Here, it is explained that you need traffic generated from buying intent keywords rather than informational keywords, even if that traffic is smaller. Branded keywords are also introduced.
Product research on Amazon and generating buying intent keywords (13:19)- Here, you learn how to do product research on Amazon. Keywords research tools are introduced, including Google Keyword Planner, Long Tail Pro, and SEMRush.
How to find informational keywords (11:59)- Sometimes, you need traffic from users at the very beginning of their buying cycle; this is accomplished using informational keywords. Also, Google rewards pages that have informational as well as transactional keywords.
Module 2: Content Creation
How to create quality content for your niche (11:54)- Quality content is introduced and described.
Conversion tips (6:01)- Grigory explains how to maximize conversion from your generated traffic. Call-to-actions, H2 headings, comparison tables, banners, etc. are all introduced as ways to increase conversions.
Home page layout (3:38)- Grigory goes over how you can best lay out your home page for the most conversions.
Silo structure (4:52)- The idea of categorizing keywords by silo, or category, is introduced. Grigory goes over the concept of keyword silos and how to build them.
Supporting posts (2:34)- The supporting posts link to epic posts and use less popular keywords than epic posts.
Epic posts (4:29)- Epic posts are introduced and described. Grigory also shows example epic posts via his Google searches.
Keyword tips for content (2:49)- Grigory provides additional tips on how keywords can be placed into content for improved SEO.
Get out of Sandbox quickly (3:24)- After your site is launched, it might be placed into the Google Sandbox. This is a location where your site and its keywords are not yet ranked. Grigory explains how you can get out of the Sandbox sooner.
Module 3: Site setup
Site setup (17:10)- A rather in-dept introduction is provided for creating your domain, including selecting your URL, obtaining hosting, generating your WordPress theme(s), etc.
Easy way to set up Amazon monetization (3:14)- In this much shorter video, Stefan instructs you on how to set up and use the EasyAzon plugin for the Amazon Affiliates program.
Things to NOT do (2:24)- Stefan goes over things you shouldn’t do as an Amazon affiliate, like sending your affiliate link in emails, iframing, link cloaking, using links in e-books, using your affiliate link for your own product purchases, etc.
Boost website speed (2:48)- Stefan shows you how you can easily increase your site loading speed by taking basic steps like leveraging browser caching. Stefan notes that there is a resource (i.e., a quarter page of code) included in the training to help you complete this procedure.
Module 4: Traffic
Getting long term traffic (6:20)- Stefan goes over link-building as a way to get some ranking on Google. He goes over authority links, the relevance of those links, link diversity, and outbound links.

Infographics links, huge PR (9:28)- Stefan goes over how to insert links into infographics for improved site rank on Google. While this was an excellent tutorial, there was a point in the video tutorial (0:46) where Stefan forgot to edit out some of his expletives (!).
Effective blog commenting (8:39)- Stefan demonstrates how to find websites where you can post quality blog comments and boost your website.
Link building plan for your site (5:34)- Stefan goes over all the lessons of the prior videos and summarizes the strategies that were introduced for effective link-building.
Blog outreach (13:49)- The final video shows you how to target specific blogs in order to get links from them. Guest posting is explained in great detail.
Affiliate Rebirth: Pros and Cons
Like every training program, Affiliate Rebirth has its pros and cons. Here are some of the positive aspects of the course:
Affiliate Rebirth offers a comprehensive training program for people who wish to create affiliate websites and see them rank quickly. Lots of time is spent showcasing actual examples of niche sites, link strategies, blogs, etc. There are also additional resources located at the bottom of each video module for further reading.
The program offers a 30-day money-back guarantee that is honored. My refund request was processed within two days, no questions asked.
Affiliate Rebirth is fairly new and has some rough edges to smooth out before it can become a top-of-the-line training program. For starters, many of its videos feature typed pages of notes that are hard to read. Some of the presenters have rather heavy accents that may be difficult to follow, especially for non-native English speakers. There’s even a point in one of the training videos where Stefan can be heard swearing just before he cuts the video.
The product does not offer a member forum, although it does feature a webinar that one can register for. This webinar might be offered weekly or monthly; the next webinar is scheduled for August 9th.
The Bottom Line: Is Affiliate Rebirth a Scam?
At $17, Affiliate Rebirth is offering up a lot of value for the price. You are given quality information and videos packed full of useful resources to get an affiliate marketing website up and running.
For a beginner affiliate marketer, Affiliate Rebirth offers some good training and examples. More advanced affiliate marketers will probably wish to look elsewhere for in-depth training and strategies. It’s doubtful that, just using the techniques discussed in the base product at Affiliate Rebirth alone, you would come to generate $3K-$5K/month, but you would certainly be on your way towards earning some money through your niche websites.
As for the advertised free traffic, yes, it could be completely free if you did all the work involved in link posting, writing comments and guest posts, etc., but you will then be dedicating a lot of your time towards these efforts. Some of the advertised methods were ways I’d never recommend. I find infographics to be completely useless and blog commenting is only really effective if the blog has allowed dofollow links.
All in all, Affiliate Rebirth is not a scam and is absolutely worth the advertised price.
