If you’ve been in the affiliate marketing game for any amount of time you’ve certainly heard of Clickfunnels.
If you haven’t, then you must have an amazing ad blocker or you’re actually brand new. In this case, let me tell you, Clickfunnel’s is a truly all in one digital marketing tool.
Whether you are selling widgets to people (ecom), recruiting members (MLM), or promoting businesses and products (affiliate marketing), Clickfunnels has your back.
But aside from being a great Swiss army knife for digital marketers, Russel Brunson, owner of Clickfunnels has developed a great 2-tier affiliate program. This means you’ll likely have a great chance of profiting from using Clickfunnels to promote Clickfunnels itself because you’ll also profit from those who you’ve personally referred promoting Clickfunnels.
Deep breath. It’s not a pyramid scheme, you just make money off of one level. Hence, 2-tier.
This is a tested system that has worked really well for the company, and is part of the reason Russel is able to turn Clickfunnels one of the giants of the marketing software world.
Another reason why Clickfunnels has seen this level of success is because they treat their affiliates well. For example, they offer a course, which is, in essence, a course on digital marketing, to their affiliates for free.
This course is easily worth $997, but because the company, Clickfunnels, itself, will profit from anyone who is successful promoting its products, they have every incentive to provide their affiliate partners with top-level learning resources for free.
I recently went through the 12 day, step by step, course and in this article I’ll give you a review of it to let you know what to expect and what you can learn in the next 12 days.
In a sense, you really don’t have anything to lose when you “enroll” in this course because the Clickfunnels platform itself has a 14-day free trial. You’ll only be paying for paid traffic if you do decide to go through the course. If you take action and work your ass off you can potentially get some results before you even have to pay a penny for Clickfunnels itself (disclaimer: can’t promise you any results).
Name: Clickfunnel’s Affiliate Bootcamp
Owners: Russel Brunson
Overall Rank: 4.2 out of 5.0
Overall Course Material:
Realistically, you can go through these modules in a week or less.
If you’re really ambitious you can go through all of them in a night of drunken digital marketing adventures. I only know one person that’s done that though (it was me).
Then again, I’m kind of bizz-op junkie that loves to learn about new ideas. But let me assure you, you will learn a lot of new concepts in the course material.
When you first enroll, you’ll be drip fed the course which means you’ll only be able to access one module a day.
This can be by-passed by messaging Russel Brunson on Facebook and asking for all the courses to be unlocked.
Affiliate Bootcamp contains a lot of essential digital marketing education.
For example, module 4: The Dream 100. This module is about reaching out to 100 of the top influencers and top marketers in the industry.
Yes, it is quite advanced, and something you’ll definitely be working towards and not something you’ll be doing right away. Especially if you’re just getting started with this industry. But it does provide a “grand scheme” kind of perspective to the concept of affiliate marketing, giving you an idea of what the whole industry is about.
In this module, Russel shows how he provided value to these influencers by performing simple gestures, and really gave his brand and company a lot of credibility. Turns out, its all about the little things (you knew that already) ;). In turn, Clickfunnels was boosted to the top of the digital marketing game right from the start of its launch.
Which is quite true. Being in the game for a while, it seems like it has always been in the scene, and almost every big influencer in the game has had their fingers in the overall success of Clickfunnels. Think, Tai Lopez, Grant Cardone, and Sam Ovens…
Thanks to the support and endorsement from the big hitters, and the wise reinvestment into the company by the management team, Clickfunnels has become a huge player in the digital marketing game. It has truly become all-in-one, and there is no hyperbole here.
I’m constantly impressed by how easy it is to make a sales funnel, or even a website on the platform. This allows you to focus on the business aspects of, well, your business and not the technical side of it. This is the direction that a lot of online platforms are heading to.
It used to be that you had to have technical proficiency to do anything online and it became the barrier to success for a lot of business people, but not with software like Clickfunnels. Now you don’t really have to worry about that anymore and you can focus on your content.
Ultimately, you’ll be getting a sufficient education on digital marketing with Clickfunnels’ Affiliate Bootcamp
A lot of foundational knowledge, and some cool Facebook ads tips and tricks. Including some ninja tricks 😉
However there is a module that is out-of-date as of July, 2018. This is module 8: Our Big Secret.
Not to give too much away, so not to spoil any of the learning you’ll be doing ;), but you can’t promote videos that you share on your page that you’ve posted from other pages anymore.
Essentially, in module 8, you’ll be learning how to share a video that has a lot of social proof. Let’s say you share a post from Gary Vee. Then you’ll be promoting this post with your own business, with your affiliate links, hoping to latch onto the social proof of Gary Vee’s post, because it’ll likely have thousands of likes and comments.
In this way you’ll be hijacking the social proof of his post and gaining your own likes and comments while, at the same time, getting clicks to your link.
Unfortunately, you can’t do this anymore 🙁
Oh well, most of the other modules have plenty of value.
If you leave a comment asking for it, I’ve actually thought up a way to go around this that’s almost just as good. So leave a comment 😉
Basically, like I said, Clickfunnels is the Swiss army knife for digital marketers.
You can do a lot with Clickfunnels.
- Sales funnels
If I discovered this software when I was starting out it would be a one-stop deal with getting all the tools I need.
Unfortunately, I have a lot invested in other companies (because they did a better job of advertising to me at the time :P), so I’m only using Clickfunnels for building funnels and pop-ups for now.
Eventually I’ll want to make some courses and maybe even venture into e commerce. This is something that Clickfunnels has a platform for.
In essence, all digital marketing tools seek to turn traffic, which are people active on the internet, into someone that is engaged with your business. I have to say, Clickfunnels has optimized every tool it provides for this purpose, in a user-friendly, intuitive platform.
If you really want to see the power of Clickfunnels, check out their flagship software called Actionetics. This software allows the user to plan out and strategize for every customer interaction.
This means you can create very complex sequences that suit every one of your customers uniquely. For example: Someone who has not opened your first email will be sent the first email again instead of the second email. However, for someone who had opened your first email, they will be sent the second email. But if that person has more than ten thousand Facebook followers, they will be sent a unique email specifically for that, whereas people that have less than ten thousand Facebook followers will be sent a generic one.
You can go on and on with these strategies.
It may take you a few months to learn the most optimal way to connect to your customers, but it may very well be worth it for you.

There is a lot of value in this course, and it might be one that changes the direction that a lot of digital marketers take in their business.
Since I’ve started promoting Clickfunnels and using the software for my business, I’ve upped by affiliate marketing game. Maybe its just because I’ve aligned myself with another entity that is at the top of the digital marketing.
I mean, if I see myself doing this for a while, then I have to see myself being in the position to possibly produce a product that is on par with the quality of Clickfunnels. What a daunting notion. But, then again, it is necessary to dream big, and aim high.
Hopefully, this review has given you an idea of what to expect in Clickfunnels’ Affiliate Bootcamp. Maybe it has even inspired you to start your digital marketing education 😉 If you do decide to do so, Affiliate Bootcamp is a good place to start.
Even if you are quite a veteran in digital marketing you may very well gain some new insights, and besides, promoting Clickfunnels will surely be another great avenue of income. Like we all know, it is quite lucrative to promote something that sells itself.
