Make Money with Super Affiliate Zac Johnson

Zac Johnson, who refers to himself as a Super Affiliate, has been busy promoting his new blog ZacJohnson.com by ordering a bunch of ReviewMe reviews from other bloggers (here and here for example). I figure it was only a matter of time before Zac ordered a review from me. After all, you can’t be a Super Affiliate and not order a review from John Chow dot Com!

Who Is Zac Johnson

Zac Johnson has been in the affiliate marketing game for 10+ years, making Zac as old as me in term of Internet moneymaking experience. Zac is the founder of the MoneyReign Network and derives most of his Internet income from it. While I would love to do a business model breakdown of MoneyReign, Zac ordered a review of his blog and not his network. However, I may come back to it at a later date.

Zac Johnson is a true Super Affiliate. Many affiliate marketers call themselves Super Affiliate but are not. True Super Affiliates run their own affiliate networks. Just as Shoemoney has his AuctionAds, Zac Johnson has his MoneyReign Network.

The Zac Johnson Blog

zac.jpgZac started his blog on March 17 of this year and has done a reasonably good job at keeping it updated with at least one new post per day. The posts are mostly about making money with affiliate marketing but there are few personal posts to keep the blog lighthearted. Lighthearted was the image I got when first visiting Zac’s blog. ZacJohnson.com features a caricature of Zac with a crown on his head and holding a fist full of dollars.

Zac does a good job personalizing his site to add that human element that most blogs lack. From his descriptive about page to his photo gallery, you get the impression that Zac is a down to earth guy who’s really having fun at what he’s doing.

For such a new blog, ZacJohnson.com has a ton of categories. Many of the categories overlap each other. I’m not a fan of too many categories but I can see that Zac is doing this more for tagging and SEO than trying to make his blog look bigger than it really is.

The stated purpose of ZacJohnson.com is to help you make money online (this sounds familiar). All posts on the blog are from Zac’s 10+ year of experience. Some of the more noteworthy entries include:

Monetized With Affiliate Deals Only

True to Zac’s Super Affiliate title, ZacJohnson.com is monetized with affiliate deals only. In addition to reviews on advertising networking (using his affiliate link), Zac offers a Make Money page with his list of approved moneymakers. Zac’s list is a little different than my list because it’s geared towards affiliate marketing.

Aside from the affiliate links, Zac has done nothing else to monetize his blog. It will be interesting to see what direction he takes the blog in as it gets bigger. The blog headline states there will be no paid sponsorship of post. However, posts with affiliate links are no problem. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have added ZacJohnson.com to my Google Reader (he offers a full feed RSS). There are tons of online moneymaking blogs on the Internet. Most are started by bloggers who couldn’t make money online if their life depended on it. ZacJohnson.com is not one of those blogs. It’s good to see Zac enter the blogsphere to share his knowledge. I look forward to reading his future posts.

    Just saw Zac in Kumiko blog. Well, your writing skill is better than her, a lot.

    1. Kumiko says:

      Hilarious!! If you’re going to criticize my writing you should really use correct grammar to do so. ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Kumiko says:

        AAAAHHH! NO! Forget the above comment…I forgot to follow JC’s advice for handling negative comments….let me try that again…

        Thank you for your comment. I would love to hear your advice on how I can improve my writing.

        aaahh….that’s better….

        1. Shaun Carter says:

          Writing and grammar has become quite the hot topic around here lately. Nice save there Kumiko ๐Ÿ™‚

        2. LOL good one, Kumiko. However, I think John’s personal approach to negative comments is by not retaliating at all. It does feel good to use a little sarcasm from time to time though, doesn’t it LOL. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

        3. Court says:

          Kumiko, your writing is awesome and you don’t have to worry about what anyone says. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        4. I think that when your fans (kumiko’s) saw this, they’ll be angered.

          However, I do think compared to the number of John’s fans?…. nevermind. ๐Ÿ˜€

    2. come on, louiss, kumiko is Japanese as far as i can tell. I bet your written Japanese is not half as good as her written english if you know what i mean

  2. We have some things to learn from Zac. Kumiko also wrote him a nice review, it did not seem so bad to me!

  3. Mubin says:

    Wonder why he didnt order one from me?

    1. maybe your blog has not got a fan base as big as john’s…

    2. now this is the time for you to learn about PR or PageRank.

  4. Sharon says:

    Only thing is affliate success is secrets is closely guarded and not much information is share in it. Just general info is all we get

    1. i agree with you, but I still learned a lot from zac’s blog

  5. Steve says:

    From all my surfing around blog’s I can say that I don’t see many Shakespeares blogging. Good grammar is hard to find, and we’d probably not recognize it if it hit us in the face. Good content is what most people look for, and as long as it’s understandable then it’s fine.

    1. Steve says:

      By the way Kumiko, his japanese probably sucks.

    2. Shaun Carter says:

      Now that’s a clever idea Steve. Start a blog only writing in Shakespearian era English.

      “I have already delivered him letters, and there
      appears much joy in him; even so much that joy could
      not show itself modest enough without a badge of
      bitterness.” – Shakespeare

      I don’t know how much writing like that I could take! I know I sure didn’t care for it in High School and college.

      1. Steve says:

        If blogs were in Olde English, I know of one humble blogger who wouldn’t be blogging.

        Although I still remember to date some Shakespeare verse we had to memorize. Doesn’t serve me much use, but at least it helped me pass English.

    3. for me, i’d rather read kumiko’s blog. i’d be bored out of my mind reading shakespeare’s

      1. uncle sha says:

        yeah Hi5 … old english is such a bore

        keep it simple, short and to the point

  6. thesilly1 says:

    As Steve mentioned. I would personally rather see a blog with great content and ok grammar. Then a blog with bad content and great grammar. It’s the content that people return for not the content.

    Neat site Zac. I’ll return and catch up on the blog… soon.

    1. well said thesilly1, but it’d be great to read a blog with both great grammar and great content

      1. Great grammar and great content are ideal, but it is rare to stumble upon these two at the same time nowadays. High-quality content does take off some pressure on grammar and spelling though.

  7. wish i had the money to order a review with you, john

    1. Steve says:

      I think John would recommend you to write more content. I’d save my money if I was you. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. you’re probably right, actually you’re

  8. Shaun Carter says:

    Zac’s got a really great looking site. The man with the crown logo is pretty cool. I’ll definitely be reading some more of his posts.

  9. You know what would make Zac even a better Super Affiliate…if he waited until you hiked up your ReviewMe price and ordered up a review then. Well, I still give him props for his advertising strategies. And his blog…very human and lighthearted indeed; I like it a lot.

  10. Court says:

    Sounds like an instant ‘must read’. I really like it when the ‘dot com moguls’ get into the game. It makes it a lot easier for everyone else that is trying to learn from them.

  11. Eric says:

    Great review, and I’m equally as impressed with Zac’s site.

    Are you serious?

  12. Eric says:

    About the whole Shakespeare thing… bad idea.

    1. not really. that is just your opinion.

  13. lucky, shoemoney, his auctionads get a free ride there

  14. Eric says:

    on top commentators

  15. Eric says:

    really sparked a lot of spam commenting!

    1. Court says:

      Yeah it did, I like your evilness. Keep it up. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

      1. Money says:

        EVIL!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    2. and you are one of those spammers.

  16. Eric says:

    especially from people like ‘monetize your blog’

    annoying huh?

  17. Make Money says:

    This was a great discussion, lets stay on topic.

    I whole heartedly believe in monetizing the site with affiliate deals. PPC is stealing commisions. Don’t you aggree too? Lets say you have a certain audience, and they click on an ad and go away to buy something. You get 5 cents, and the advertiser (could be a vendor, could be an affiliate) just made $50.

    Publishers these days get too lazy and think that their small site/blog/forum needs to have Adsense as monetization, because they are too lazy to make money themselves.

    Shame.

  18. mickno says:

    Just another “make money” his blog will fail like harpzon.

    1. I agree I think harpzon fluffed his blog up to more than it was…how once he started making all those I get so many people a day statements he takes off his visible sitemeter!….Huh?

      Clothing line

  19. Money says:

    What is harpzon?

    1. HarpzOn dot com is Mitch’s site…he is selling/sold his domain recently. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

  20. Finally got around to checking out the site and have to say it is pretty good…nice information…

  21. uncle sha says:

    that’s one big RSS button, you can’t miss that. haaha! :mrgreen:

    it’s a cool site, with plenty of guides, reading it as of now

    yupz i’ve bookmarked it too

  22. guys. the topic is about Zac’s site “super affiliate” and not the top commentators feature on this blog.

    back to the topic:
    great design skills. the site is very creative. however, he should have more content.

  23. One more thing, I love the pics of his checks. It definitely gets the point across about the effectiveness of his recommenations. Similar to the pics of Shoemoney and Markus Frind (Plentyoffish)and their huge checks. Definitely inspiring and builds a lot of credibility.

  24. Great review! The site is awesome, and I think this is the perfect sort of ReviewMe for your site John!

    -Sam from Market Matador

  25. I like Zac. Man it’s getting harder to get on the comment list! wtfcharles

  26. He’s got his layout covered; next thing he should work on is content, definitely. It’s still early anyway, I’m sure he can come up with some pretty good content soon (fingers crossed).
