Another day, another YouTuber. This time we take a look at Chad Bartlett and his affiliate marketing course on Teachable called the Affiliate Marketing Mastermind. It's not exactly a unique name so it's not to be confused with other courses out there that sound the same.
Who is Chad Bartlett?
Chad Bartlett is a full time online marketer and entrepreneur. He's very active on his Youtube channel and does videos around 3 times a week. In these free videos his goal is to help people make passive income with affiliate marketing.
In looking at his videos, he teaches everything from how you can make $100 a day to collecting emails, making high converting landing pages, getting targeted traffic to your website and more.
He still makes commissions through his free training with links to products he suggests (like Builderall for example) which is perfectly fine as he doesn't look to review any scammy products out there.
A Review of Affiliate Marketing Mastermind
I'm sure the main reason you are here is because you heard of his course and want to learn more about it. In case you're not, just so you know he's created a course on the Teachable platform where he charges a respectable $247 for his affiliate marketing teaching.
Chad claims that he spent over 10K in courses and felt that there was a common theme with all of them - they lacked something which prevented you from making money. He doesn't actually say what this is but believes that his course is the last course you'll need in affiliate marketing.
There are 5 areas where he goes into great depth with the course:
- Facebook Ads - covering both affiliate & CPA
- Facebook Groups (for free traffic)
- Youtube Marketing - Affiliate offers (free traffic)
- Landing pages & funnels
- Email Marketing
The course has just over 41 videos in total.
Let's take a closer look at the modules

There are 6 weeks of video replays dealing with topics on buidling a funnel, email list, free traffic, paid traffic and promoting your offer.
He's also got some testimonials on his offer page but take these with a grain of salt. There's even the famous Clickbank earnings report that can be easily doctored up. Not saying it is of course but it's pretty common.
What Do I think of His Course?
I like Chad's free training and the topics included in his course are good but it doesnt look like he includes any Google Ads training. Also lacking is SEO training - although he does teach Youtube SEO.
I have also noticed that his teaching style and topics covered are similar to that of Savage Affiliates by Franklin Hatchett. He's another Youtuber you probably know about.
If we compare the two courses, Franklin does cover the topics Chad misses and Franklin's got a hell of a lot more content in his course.
So although I think Chads course is decent and priced ok, I'd still prefer Savage Affiliates over it any day. It's also priced lower at just $197. But don't take my word for it here, take a look at my review on Savage Affiliates and decide for yourself. If there's any questions feel free to contact me!
