Super Affiliate Accelerator Review Summary;
This method is not new, leveraging the power of social media, groups and building a tribe has been around for a while. But how to actually leverage that authority is something most people get wrong.
SAA teaches you how to actually market and make sales (it can be used with more than just affiliate marketing) as well as content marketing, networking and a lot more. One of the most in depth courses I have reviewed at this price point.
It's a high ticket course, but comes with a ton of content and support. This is for those who really want to take action and learn how to market and sell.
Ease of USe
I actually found the navigation and getting the resources etc really easy. The overall course training is easy to follow, though does require work and dedication.
The course is packed full of content, with new modules and videos being added all the time
Thriving community, Q&A lives every week, support thread and other support channels. Really can't complain.
Edit: As promised, SAA has been updated, new modules added, new resources provided and new training added. As such this review will now reflect these changes. A lot of the modules have been boosted or merged together.
Many moons ago, I reviewed a small training course by a guy called Jacob Caris. Someone who most people would not have heard of. Unless you where either a super fan of ClickFunnels, or the new and improved Legendary Marketer Platform.
At the time of the review, I didn't know much about him, never seen much of his work and hardly knew what he had achieved.
Fast forward 12 months, when I first wrote this Super Affiliate Accelerator Review, a lot has changed.
Jacob has made a huge name for himself. By having a very focused, bordering on insanely focused desire to succeed with whatever he puts his mind to.
His first training course DreamCar Profits showed he had the knowledge and accolades. So can his second (third if you include his Platinum Secrets Course) carry on this trend, or has he missed the mark on this one?
What Is The Super Affiliate Accelerator?
The Super Affiliate Accelerator (or SAA from now on), is Jacobs newest offering, an in-depth training and mastermind style course. Aimed at teaching affiliates, new or seasoned to leverage the power of authority and consulting on on social media. Allowing you to build an army of hungry buyers, desperate to buy anything from you.
Well, ok, not quite, it is designed to teach you how to build up authority and a following. Letting you show people you actually know what you are talking about when it comes to affiliate marketing, as sadly, a lot of people don't.
The training, Q&A's and course are a framework in which you can start to transition yourself from a follower, to a leader. Helping you understand what people are after and diagnosing their problems.
SAA is actually split into 2 distinct parts.
The high ticket training program. Packed with;
- Case Studies
- 2 Year back catalogue of Facebook Lives
The Private Mastermind Support group. This includes;
- Weekly calls - Q&A's / Examples And Coaching
- Ad-hoc Lives with strategies and ideas
- Support Threads
- Q&A Threads
This SAA review is going to be quite in-depth. Unlike others who have just looked at a sales page or head a thing or two. This is my experience as a BETA tester. All the screenshots and content are my own and from my account inside of SAA.
What Is Inside SAA?
It's time to get the the nitty gritty of this mastermind/course, and actually look at the substance.
As I have already said, SAA is split into 2 main parts. The core training and then the support group or mastermind part of this, so I will split this SAA Review up into those key areas.
Super Affiliate Accelerator Core Training
The Super Affiliate Accelerator training made up of 10 main modules. With additional bonus modules, and an affiliate training area. With roughly 90 odd different sections. Designed to take you from $0 per month, to $10k+ per month, using affiliate marketing.
As part of this Super Affiliate Accelerator review, I will group the areas or modules that cover similar topics. Of course go into a bit more detail where it may be required.
So lets take a look at what is inside of the SAA mastermind training, and understand the concepts and practises being taught.
Module 1 - Intro
This is your intro module, which is not that surprising. This module is made up of a number of videos that cover;
- Introducing Jacob, Jamie and Chris
- Explaining the strategy
- How to get the most out of SAA
- The Rules
- How to find support
It's an intro module, so there isn't a lot to talk about. The strategy and how to get the most out of SAA videos are brilliant.
Module 2 - Success Mindset
Most people will laugh when you say 'Success Mindset', I did when I first got into affiliate marketing. But, I learned over time that you can damage your own ability to succeed if you have the 'wrong' mindset.
I don't mean the whole 'dream of a boat, get a boat' stuff. This is how to get rid of the ego and understand what you are trying to achieve.
Something I had to go through a few times, because I have a stupidly big ego at times and this is a good place to break that ego down.
This whole section is also about helping you understand what mindset or framework you need to start setting up to understand how this works.
Jacob covers breaking some of the blockers, such as 'Shiny Object Syndrome'. A lot of people suffer from (including me for a while). As well as covering some of the key aspects and thought processes behind selling and presenting value.
A lot of affiliate marketing is all about selling, the clue is in the name, marketing. You are marketing and selling products, be that through articles, ad copy or email copy. You are creating content designed to sell, this is no different. Except it's a lot more personal, and can hit you hard if you are not ready for it.
Module 3 - Niche & Customers
This module is full of videos that focus on the niche and target audience. Understanding who you are actually trying to sell too, or more importantly, your target customer. Without this, there is no way you are going to succeed.
Lots of courses or training programs skip through this, take ClickFunnels for example, you don't have to promote it to other marketers.
There are thousands of customers who could find it useful, be it dentists, gym owners, brick layers or even car sale showrooms. This module is there to help you find, understand and ultimately focus on that market.
It's great to understand who you are actually trying to pitch your products too, or what your niche and the people within that space will be.
You don't just have to go for the big easy one such as Make Money Online, or Health. There are lots of niches out there, who have their own audience and people looking to build their businesses.
Take dentists, they are always on the look out for new leads, or new business. They may not be tech savvy, they can tell the difference between the molar and incisor. They probably don't fully understand what an upsell is, what lead generation is or the inner workings of an autoresponder.
Module 4 - Week 1 Fast Start Process
The first few modules within this course are the ground work. They help you understand the process, who you will be crafting your content for and how to stop yourself from jumping around offers.
It's time to hit the ground running. Module 4 is all about actually taking action in your first week within this course. Jacob mentions that he didn't want people just watching videos, or reading PDF's and text, but never putting any of it into action.
So Module 4 is there to give you actionable points and processes that you can start implementing.
I liked Module 4 a lot, most courses don't do this, they dive into the work, expecting you to instantly pick it up and start doing what they say. But from speaking to people over the last few years they don't.
Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day. This method of affiliate marketing can take a few months to start seeing results. Especially if you are brand new to affiliate marketing, or if you have never used social media as a way of selling before.
This Week 1 Fast Start Process is going to get you primed and ready. It will give you the exact plan you need to do daily to ensure you are actually doing, rather than just 'soaking'.
Each section within this module is a different action point. Some of which you will be doing daily, other's such as the accountability post will be done just once.
A great module, that also introduces you to the MOCA concept, which is the framework that the SAA training sites on.
This same framework is taught inside of the Super Affiliate Intensive training. For those who don't have the funds available or are unsure about SAA, this is a great place to start.
Module 5 - Monetisation
Module 5 starts with actually finding those products for you to sell.
The other part that I liked, is the about why you are not selling the product. This goes against a lot of what is taught. But understanding this can open up a lot of opportunity.
Jacob also explains how to find products within your niche. You don't have to sell the same stuff everyone else does.
When I went through this, I actually decided to use what I learnt inside of SAA and focus on a different niche. Something that this blog didn't cover, giving me a separate stream of income.
Of course, the module does focus on high ticket products. Finding items that can potentially provide you with $500+ commissions or $1,000+ commissions.
There is one section that I believe everyone should watch and understand. If you ever purchase SAA, you should go to Module 5, 'Crafting Your Evolving Offer'. This part has 10 different videos on how to present an opportunity.
For example how to actually create an offer for someone, such as a Super Stack. This isn't your usual "stack tons of W+ & PLR products onto a $7 product". This is about building the foundations to help people with their purchase.
If you are interested in a full list of high ticket products that I promote. Check out the Super Affiliate Accelerator bonuses. It comes with 1-1 support, everything you need to use to succeed with SAA and more!
Modules 6 & 7 - Sales
Both of these modules focus on the 'selling machine', another core part of making commissions. If you don't sell, you can't make commissions.
Each of the modules deal with a different type of selling, depending on how you want to go forward and what you are comfortable doing. For me I found a mixture of both of these styles worked well for me.
It doesn't matter which one you choose, as they both work well, and it's good to see Jacob offering flexibility in the training.
The modules are packed with scenarios, sales fundamentals and even some guides on setting up the funnels.
There is also a live call with one of Legendary Marketers own high ticket closer. This live call and case study are super useful. It explains how Andy closed people over the phone, and understanding how to talk to people or close them.
A lot of the information you need to succeed with high ticket affiliate marketing is held within these 2 modules, and learning this part is crucial.
There are also downloadable PDFs. Providing you with different scenarios and walkthroughs.
These modules alone are worth their weight in gold. I would honestly say that Module 6 is a goldmine for useful scenarios and information. Module 7 then allows you to automate, or at least semi-automate some of your follow up or lead capture.
Module 8 - Profitable Networking
Module 8 is a follow on from 6 & 7. this is about actually learning and understanding your sales machine, coming to terms with building that relationship, your groups and of course learning how networking and using the power of social media to bring in those leads and potential buyers.
This module includes scripts and scenarios, as well as explaining why this particular traffic method works (and why it has become so popular). There has been an explosion of other training courses focusing just on this single 'networking' method.
Sadly most seem to go about it the wrong way, without providing you with the basics or the scripts that you can use to succeed. A lot of them just give some generic Facebook posts. Or they tell their students to just constantly badger people on their Facebook profiles, with generic posts or messages.
Module 9 - Facebook Groups
Carrying on from the the past modules. It's time to build your tribe, your group and your following. This for me, was the key, and one of the reason I jumped on this mastermind when it came out.
Building a tribe and group is an awesome way of stamping your authority and providing value, while at the same time leveraging that group to bring in commissions and results. For many, a group isn't something they want to grow, but it can really help skyrocket results if used correctly.
So many SAA members have absolutely crushed it with growing groups (even a small loyal following). So never underestimate the power.
These modules also come with downloadable content and ideas on how to grow and build them. As well as how to increase engagement in your group to kick start the Facebook algorithm.
The scripts, emails and swipes inside of here can really help boost how you capture new members.
Module 10 - Your Profile
As well as building that Facebook group, it's also about building your branding for your own personal profile.
This part is covered in other areas, with videos and snippets about building your profile, and how to get people towards it. I would probably see this as an additional module or resource to add more information to what you are probably doing already.
They also cover how to build your friends list, how to find new friends (leads) and also touches on tools such as this to help purge the unresponsive friends (or the lukers).
People who lurk or don't engage can be kind of useless, or counter productive. It's worth finding them, possibly engaging with them and then sending them to your group. It allows you to remove them as a prospect and then find a new one.
A lot of people fail when it comes to this part. They can usually do some outreach, and make new friends. Or they can grow a group, but they can't set up a decent looking profile.
Having one can save so much time and energy. It let's people who try to contact you, know exactly what you do. You can also leverage the links and bio to generate leads or sales.
For me, I set my bio up to funnel people towards my own blog training, as well as my Facebook group and a few high ticket products. You will also find some of the details from what used to be Module 13 in here including;
- Personal Branded Hero Site
- Lead Magnet Delivery Flow
- Secret Bonus & Giveaway Rights
Module 11 (Adhoc Training, Resources and Interviews)
There is a shit ton in here. The whole module is packed with additional videos and resources to help you succeed.
There are videos about Frank Kern, and his 15 killer content angles. FastTrack lessons on driving people towards your brand (for those who have also learnt the fundamentals, but want to start pushing this forward). Guides on crafting and honing your skills with story telling.
There are also interviews and case studies with some of the SAA students. Especially those who have gone from 0 or maybe a few $100's per month in commissions to 0000's using the training and guidance inside of SAA.
As someone who has been enjoying affiliate marketing for years, this section is brilliant, as it allows you to see some of the bad habits you may have picked up, or some of the ways people have put a spin on their work and outreach.
Definitely worth sitting down and watching, and a great inspiration.
Finally, some additional resources that may not fit into other modules. You will find videos that Jacob or the guys created that can potentially provide some 'ah ha' moments for you.
The training and interview with one guy is pretty amazing to watch, as he talks about and explains how the used a similar strategy to hit $100k in 4 months. Yeah, that's a pretty impressive number. Now that's not typical, but it's an awesome goal to try and beat!
He uses a strategy very similar to what SAA teaches, and shows that with the right blueprint or information and the tenacity, you can do some amazing numbers.
SAA Support Group & Weekly Calls
The second half of SAA is the private Facebook groups with the weekly group coaching and Q&A calls. So far, at this time of writing there have been over 60 of these weekly calls, and nearly 100 total videos and lives from Jacob and the team.
This group is structured with a number of posts, such as 'wins', 'Q&A thread', 'Past lives' and a 'Daily Action' sections, giving people the ability to be held accountable.
Some members will post their monthly results, or awesome big wins (I recently posted hitting 200 members, and being made a moderator in 4 large Affiliate Marketing groups). It doesn't always have to be monetary.
Others like to post their daily activities, such as outreach, conversations and group growth. Personally for me, I don't as I don't really keep a daily record of what I do, but others find it useful.
The support or Q&A thread is massively helpful, as you can leverage the growing knowledge of 100+ members, some of whom are super affiliates (think Spencer or Greg Jefferies), or have experience within certain areas, such as SEO or copy-writing.
It's great to be able to ask an odd question and get back a large number of replies, most training courses lack any support (even when it's sold with having a thriving community).
Once a week you also get access to SAA Lives, whereby one of the guys, or all three, or a mixture of them will take an hour or so to answer questions that people have had issues with throughout the week, as well as provide value by giving new information, or helping people focus on the task at hand.
The lives have proven to be useful and it's nice to actually have have someone answer a question that might have bugged you for a few days and really annoyed you.
Lastly, ad-hoc lives and interviews also appear throughout the month, including interviews with big names in the affiliate industry, to people who may have just started but have just hit the ground running with their work. It's great to throw these lives o in the back ground and gain a bit of knowledge on someone's style, or tip-bit that they might have implemented that increased conversions or sales.
You should never underestimate the power of a good and active support group.
Who Are The SAA Mentors or Teachers?
This mastermind is actually run, or at least supported by 3 individuals, each bringing in their own expertise and skills to the group.
As I have already said, Jacob is the main guy in this mastermind, creating a lot of the videos, and the training within the SAA training modules. Jacob has been in the affiliate marketing gig for the last 3 years. He is the face of the course, and the front man of the 3 amigos.
His successes and resume is fairly impressive, hitting $100k commissions with Legendary Marketer, being one of the youngest ClickFunnel dream car winners, having 200 active members of ClickFunnels, every, single, month.
Out of the thousands of ClickFunnels affiliates, the Dream Car Winners Club is pretty small.
The ad guy, Jamie brings the expertise and knowledge with anything to do with Facebook Ads, or Paid Traffic. Some of the advance modules within Super Affiliate Accelerator use Jamies knowledge to help you see quicker, or bigger results.
Jamie is on a lot of the Facebook Lives, offering advice on how people can tweak ads, or scale up paid traffic.
The final piece of the puzzle is Chris, a Scottish bloke (which means people from the south like me can't understand him) who specialises in copywriting and crafting stories that convert people from simple leads to hungry buyers.
As with Jamie, you will find Chris's knowledge embedded within the training, the ability to craft stories is essential for building up your leads and followers.
Who Is This For?
I think one of the biggest misconceptions with programs or training like this, is that you need to be a established affiliate already.
It's really not the case, you can get started as a complete newbie and start seeing results, and can sometimes even be more beneficial as you are not tied down with past conversations or expectations. It also means you don't bring in the ego that you may have if you had been successful for a few years.
If you are looking to leverage social media, authority and building up a tribe of leads and potential buyers, with the aim at selling or providing value to them, then SAA might be the right fit for you. I would recommend giving the case study video a watch as it really provides and insight into what SAA is all about.
Is SAA Right For You?
As I mentioned, SAA is not the right training course for everyone, and it's worth keeping that in mind.
The other point to think about is, are you currently succeeding with your current approach, or have you hit the goal you set yourself with what you are doing. If you are not achieving success, then are you going to put in your absolute all to changing that and learning something that anyone who is willing to take the steps can succeed with.
Because that is the key.
This will not work if you buy it, watch a few videos, maybe do a little outreach and not give this your all. This requires work and drive to start seeing results.
You can even use the results of the community, or certain products to help build up your own reputation and credibility, and Jacob and the guys talk you through this approach, so those who have little or no experience can also pick this up and start seeing their own results.
Super Affiliate Accelerator Pricing - How Much Does It Cost?
Edit: As of 06/01/2021, new pricing levels have been introduced, as such the following section has now been updated to reflect that.
Edit 2: The price will be increasing on the 15th September 2021 (15/09/2021 for those who do the correct date style)
SAA is a highly valuable training course, packed with a lot of information, and it does come at a higher price than some of the other training programs I have reviewed. The Super Affiliate Accelerator pricing now starts at $1,000, which has been introduced to give people access to the core training modules.
The Super Affiliate Accelerator Basic Cost
This is their entry level package for the SAA course, costing a one time payment of $1,000 there are no payment plans for this package.
This package gives you access to;
- Lifetime access to the core 42 Day SAA course
- Access to the SAA Member only affiliate program
The Super Affiliate Accelerator Cost
Second up is the standard offering, currently the price for Super Affiliate Accelerator is either a one time payment of $2,500 or 3 x $1,000 payment plan.
This gives you access to;
The Super Affiliate Accelerator Deluxe Cost
The final offering within the SAA range is the newly announced SAA Deluxe Package. This is priced at $4,500 and is a one time payment.
This gives you access to everything above, as well as additional 1-1 coaching with Jacob Carris, the guy behind the SAA mastermind. A guy who has built and grown his own 7-figure business.
As part of the package you are given 2 x 1 hour calls with Jacob.
This package is for someone who want to kickstart this off correctly, with additional guidance and support, focusing on your weak areas, or the parts you want to accelerate quicker.
This program is unique in some sense, there is a no refund policy, the guys only want people who are dedicated and want to succeed with this program, it's one of the reasons there is a screening process.
Jacob or one of his team like to speak to each potential member of SAA on the phone, which can be a huge issue for some people.
But if you are not willing to speak to someone, then this course is probably not for you.
Super Affiliate Accelerator Bonus
I rarely do bonus offers, usually because I feel they never add real value or can even take away from the course or program being joined. But, I sat down and thought about a set of extras that someone can use the SAA training and will actually compliment the training and get you on your way.
The whole bonus stack includes access to 1-1 support, a high ticket program that you can use the SAA training to promote and Russel Brunsons Secrets Trilogy Boxset, as well as other products and assets to help you get started on the right foot.
At the time of writing, I have been within SAA for 8 months, I have gone from hiding behind Amazon blogs and SEO to actually stepping forward and taking charge of what I do. Including charging for my time and expertise and even (slowly) building my own group of dedicated followers.
I have managed to use the information and training inside of SAA to leverage some really high ticket products and platforms, as well as taking a new approach to promoting Legendary Marketer and of course Easy1Up.
I get messages daily, asking for links to different programs and platforms, allowing me to actually make commissions, without needing to constantly be online or throwing out post after post. People seek me out to ask for my links because of the value I now provide to them.
I would recommend giving the case study a watch, it really does explain a lot of the principles, and even gives you the chance to book a call with one of the team to have a chat through some of the concepts.
If you want to chat about the course, or have questions then feel free to hit me up on messenger, and let me know you have come from here!
Super Affiliate Intensive
At the start of October, Jacob and the team created a course called Super Affiliate Intensive. A low ticket offer, with a high ticket background. It utilises the framework that SAA sits on top of and offers it at a low ticket price point.
The course doesn't come with all the blueprints and in-depth videos that the SAA mastermind comes with, but it is still packed with a ton of value and knowledge.
This 4 step process is designed to fit around any program, platform or offer, and focuses on increasing peoples knowledge of how to frame, sell and essentially promote a product.
MOCA stands for;
Each section and each day of the training is dialled into those areas. For example most people never see affiliate marketing as a business, they treat it as a hobby. Which means that people come into this with completely the wrong mindset.
The other sections then build upon that, helping you build offers around products, finding your right audience and of course understanding how to convert those potential buyers.
The SAI course also comes with interviews with some of the most successful SAA students, who have leveraged the MOCA framework, all of whom basically started from scratch. You also get a game plan created for you, training on how to grow Facebook groups, the super affiliate story formula and even a some additional training from Jacob on how to attract high quality leads.
Super Affiliate Intensive Pricing - How Much Does it Cost?
If SAA is a big investment and not something that is achievable right now, then this intensive version is currently on offer for $100 and well worth the money to get it.
This training and framework can be put into practise instantly, and can be a great jumping off point.
I started this blog around 2017, after realising that I wanted to let people know about all the different ways someone could make money online. From DropShipping, Affiliate Marketing, Network Marketing and more.
This blog has now grown to review and explain a variety of different tools and platforms, in the bid to help you.
This blog contains affiliate links, and I will get a commission for purchases made through these links. It doesn’t change anything for you and will on occasion save you money! Enjoy, James,
