Making money online can seem like a daunting and overwhelming venture for people new to the industry and even seasoned veterans can use a little more guidance from time to time. Providing you with valued instruction across this entire spectrum is Internet University by Super Affiliate Twins.
The online course serves as the subject of today’s review and we’ll be taking a look at the information being offered, whether or not it’s useful, and how much this guidance is going to cost you.
Going Back to School
Internet University is designed as an ongoing course in how to make money developing and running websites. It goes through many of the different avenues you can take, from email marketing to media buying.
I think it’s a bit of a stretch, but main guy Ryan Gray refers to himself as the Lead Professor at the University. It’s a fun title, to be sure, but I feel it’s a bit of a misnomer.
Ryan has a couple of small issues in his videos (e.g., referring to Africa as a country), but I’m willing to overlook these for the core content described within.
The Classroom Is a Forum
To provide for the simplest and best possible user experience, this online training program is presented in the form of a forum. You can see the different “modules” to the left and all the sub-forums in the main area to the right.
This helps to foster conversation both between the student and the teacher, but also between students. If you have any questions, you can raise them in the appropriate forum thread and get a timely response from Ryan or from someone else in the community.
In terms of modules, it starts with basic website creation and moves on to content gateways, search engine optimization, PPC marketing, mobile marketing, and more/
I think the forum configuration works, since each of the new lessons within each module is published as a “sticky” post in the appropriate forum.
One Lesson at a Time
Each lesson is comprised of a video and a brief write-up. The videos range considerably in length, but you can typically expect to sit down for 15 to 30 minutes at a time. Underneath this, Ryan describes the necessary experience level, knowledge required, and how much you can expect to invest based on the information in the video.
In this first video, for instance, the estimated initial cost is about $10 (the price of a domain for one year). These “investment” costs can increase, of course, as you start to invest in Google AdWords campaigns and so forth.
One of the more interesting modules, at least for me, was the Introduction to Content Gateways. This would relate to sites like those that share video game cheat codes, stream television shows, and offer other kinds of premium content.
With a content gateway, you force site visitors to fill out a CPA offer before they can access that premium content. This can be a great source of revenue when executed effectively. In the video, Ryan describes how to set up the site, where to get the CPA offers, how to set up the gateway widget, and more.
How Much Does It Cost?
When you sign up with Internet University by Super Affiliate Twins, you gain access to everything the online “classroom” has to offer. This runs the full gamut of making money from websites and comes with plenty of added support. The screencast videos are certainly helpful.
To further sweeten the pot, you are also provided with complimentary web hosting at RackSpace for however long you stay enrolled as a student. You also get a free LanderSplit.com account to test the effectiveness of your landing pages.
So, how much does this all cost? What I find interesting is that the subscription price isn’t listed on a per-month or per-year basis. Instead, they say that they’ll charge you $3.22 per day. This makes it sound more affordable, but you have to realize it works out to about $100 a month. Use the exclusive John Chow dot Com coupon in the link below to save 20% off your first month.
