If you're hoping to generate an income online, and you haven't really taken the time to learn affiliate marketing, then you're absolutely leaving money on the table.
Chances are good that you're facing an all-too common dilemma: how to “crack the code” of monetization and generate an income ethically from the audience you've been building.
Maybe you worry that to do so you'll have to create your own products from scratch. But generating an income from your own products requires time, energy, and a clear sense of what your audience wants and needs.
On top of that, you may fret that creating your own products will make it seem like you're "selling out" and could damage the trust you've so carefully built with your audience.
Affiliate marketing offers a great solution to all these concerns. With affiliate marketing you can generate an income by recommending market-tested products you already trust and you know your audience will benefit from.
Affiliate marketing is a time-tested income-generation strategy with two powerful benefits: it allows you to maintain and strengthen your audience’s hard-won trust in your brand, with no need to invest time and energy creating products of your own.
Sadly, it’s easy to do affiliate marketing the wrong way—by putting money before your audience’s needs and trust, and damaging that relationship in the process.
That's why I created 1•2•3 Affiliate Marketing.
With 1•2•3 Affiliate Marketing, I’ll give you all the tools you need to win by promoting products that already exist in the market you're in—and I’ll show you how to do it the right way, so your audience wins, too.
1•2•3 Affiliate Marketing is your one-stop shop to become an affiliate marketing powerhouse.
Affiliate marketing changed my life.
At first, I was too afraid to create my own products, and I didn't know what to build. But over time I found that by sharing and recommending the products that had already been proven to help people, companies would pay me for sending new customers their way, and my audience would thank me for sharing those resources with them.
Since 2010, when I started affiliate marketing, I've generated over $3.5 million from affiliate revenue alone. You can even see all the details in my monthly income reports over the years on smartpassiveincome.com.
Affiliate marketing can be done the wrong way, or it can be done the right way. I've learned what works and what doesn't, and I want to use that knowledge to teach you how to generate affiliate income ethically and effectively.
If you've been struggling to generate an income online, and you're not sure how to start monetizing, 1•2•3 Affiliate Marketing is for you.
1•2•3 Affiliate Marketing is built on 23 lessons across 5 distinct modules that will guide you in how to:

- "Stay legal" when you're promoting affiliate products.
- Promote your affiliate products in any situation, at your own comfort level.

...and many more rules, tools, and strategies that make the difference between affiliate marketing the right way and affiliate marketing the wrong way.
I want you to get paid for your efforts AND be thanked by your audience for it. That's the goal, and I'm here to help you make it happen.
1•2•3 Affiliate Marketing was built with the ambitious online business owner in mind.
- Work at your own pace.
- Clear action items set you up for success, teaching you how to choose the right affiliate relationships and share those recommendations with your audience effectively.
- Gain exclusive access to a Facebook community to discuss coursework and trade ideas with your fellow classmates.
- Ongoing office hours with Pat each week give you the opportunity to ask questions and get advice.
This course is for people who already have an online presence. It’s not for people who are just thinking of starting a business and starting from scratch.
The audience size doesn't matter—you can actually benefit quite heavily from implementing these strategies early on in your business—but you need to know who you're serving and have some sort of following online, whether it's in a small email list, on social media, or a website with a bit of traffic.
What it comes down to is this: I don’t want to sell you anything that you cannot benefit from.
That’s simply not how I do things. I want you to succeed. And if you don’t have any online presence yet, this course is not going to help you succeed.
When you're ready, I’ll be here for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Pat provided both the foundation to understand what works with affiliate marketing, but he went further with recipes to create your marketing efforts with different types of products. Each one of these recipe books provided multiple ways to approach my marketing efforts. That was a lesson in itself—don't just do one thing when trying to market a product you recommend to your audience.

I was on the fence about joining 1·2·3 Affiliate Marketing because I felt like I pretty much knew everything that I needed to know about affiliate marketing already.

Over the past two years, I have been nothing but overwhelmed with internet and affiliate marketing. I think I am like many beginning internet marketers. Try every tool and every internet marketing guru's advice because they promise the world and make it seem so easy. Cost? Huge. Results? Few. When I came across Pat Flynn I felt there was something different. He just seemed real to me. So, I decided to try Pat's 1·2·3 Affiliate Marketing course. His course was much less expensive than others I've paid for. I'm half-way through the course and I finally finished my site and made a sale. I have regained my faith and really enjoy the white hat aspect of affiliate marketing. I feel like Pat really cares about us, which is unique in this business.
