Drew here again for another review. This time it's for you budding affiliate marketers out there. John Crestani is a pretty big name in the affiliate world so it's no wonder I need to do a review on his course called the Super Affiliate System 2.0.
So I went ahead and bought the course to see what it's all about and tell you if you should get it or not. I was previously a member of the Internet Jetset, a monthly subscription course so wanted to see how this course is different.
Who is John Crestani?
I won't go into too much detail here because you may know already but In case you don't know, John Crestani is an online marketer who is an expert in affiliate marketing. He has great knowledge of all forms of paid advertising from Google Ads, Youtube Ads, Facebook and Native advertising networks.
John learned how to craft his online advertising while working for a marketing firm. He was able to increase revenue for many companies thus making him a star in the agency. "Fortunately" for him though he was eventually fired and then set out on his own. The rest is history.
The Super Affiliate System 2.0 Review
This is his latest course and my goal here is to show it to you, give you my thoughts and to decide if it's worth the money or not. At $997 it's a bit steep so please pay attention before whipping out your credit card!
The course's goal is to make you a successful "paid traffic" marketer in 6 weeks. In these 6 weeks you will have 50 hours worth of videos explaining the process of affiliate marketing from A to Z.
In the first two weeks you'll learn the basics, such as explaining the business model, the mindset required, how to set up tracking software and creating landing pages.
The following weeks in the course will explain how to use the big traffic sources like Facebook, Adwords and native advertising.
In the final modules you'll learn all about optimization affiliate campaign scaling to tens of thousands of dollars a day - yes they actually have that claim on their members page!
Ok, let's get on with the modules!
Week 1 - Introduction & System Setup
Here's what is discussed in the first week:
- Goal setting
- How to join affiliate networks - Clickbank, etc.
- Setting up your site
- How to setup your presell page
- How to setup your Facebook Ads
- How to best work with Affiliate Networks
If you're an absolute noob to affiliate marketing this section will be very applicable to you if you are green on the subject. If you already know about the basics, this will be more of refresher on things you probably know already.
Week 2 - Success Skills
Here's the modules in Week 2:
- The Entrepreneur Mindset
- How to research your niche
- How to choose your offer
- How to choose your Ad network
- Researching Niches Online
- How to Network Effectively
- Understanding Intent
I'm really not big on the mindset stuff but hey at least he's not dedicating an entire module to mindset like some other guy. If you know, comment below lol.
When John talks about researching your niche he refers to finding those that are successful already and reverse engineer everything that they do. Kinda like funnel hacking that I talk about in another article.
Week 3 - Marketing Skills
This section teaches you to become a real marketer by understanding what it is that people are looking for, the psychology behind successful ads and so on. You will learn:
- How to write good copy
- Advanced copywriting tactics with Ronnie Sandlin - I think this guy was also teaching in Internet Jetset too if i'm remembering correctly.
- John's 17 step copywriting formula
- How to optimize ads
- Advanced Optimization Tactics
This was a pretty good module because I don't consider myself a copywriter at all so picked up some good pointers here regarding the psychology behind it all.
Week 4 - Facebook & Google Ads
You probably have seen John Crestani on either FB ads or Youtube and could very well be the reason why you are here now. He definitely walks the walk with this stuff. In a way he proved his strategy works.
Here's what is included in Week 4:
- Facebook ads
- Facebook ad compliance
- Important Metrics in Advertising
- Google Adwords - Part 1 & Part 2
- Facebook Ads taught by guest super affiliate Brian Pfeiffer
Week 5 - Native & Youtube Ads
Week 5 is all about the different ad networks that you can sign up with. John will teach you how to drive traffic to your offers utilizing these paid traffic methods.

Week 6 - Scaling and Outsourcing
In week 6 you'll learn things like how to use surveys within funnels, Capturing leads via surveys appears to be pretty effective so you will learn how to do this. There are other ways to generate leads which you will be taught in the section. Here's what's included and what you'll learn:
- How to use survey funnels
- $240K solar case study
- Scaling campaigns from $1K - $20K
- How to utilize Media Buyers

Here's a screenshot of the members area:
There are some extras in the course but I just wanted to review the main modules which is the beef of the course anyway.
The course has a webinar that you can attend if you haven't so already.
What I like about the Super Affiliate System 2.0
If you are only familiar with paid advertising on Google and Facebook, then you'll be happy to know that you will be taught some other methods. Once you go through the course you'll have a very good understanding of how paid advertising for affiliate marketing works and should have a much higher success rate than before.
The course is also targeted towards newbies and intermediates. Experts would probably know this stuff but I am sure they will pick up some tips here and there. The modules may seem confusing to some as I'm sure some of you don't know what things like MGID Native Ads are but don't worry, it gets broken down for you and is easy to understand.
What I don't like about the course
This course is all about paid advertising. Now, paid advertising works, but for those that are stretched a little thin with their finances may have some difficulties with 'experimenting' with their money.
There are no free strategies taught like SEO and so on, which although takes time, would be an asset to the program. Also the price tag at $997 is a little steep. You'll also need to invest more money in advertising so the price tag just to get in is just the beginning.
If paid advertising is the only thing you are interested in, then by all means you'll get something out of this course. However there is an alternative for those that want an all-in-one course for affiliate marketing.
My recommended alternative
If you want to learn paid advertising, free advertising and SEO to drive traffic, then I highly recommend my favorite affiliate marketing course - Savage Affiliates.
In this course by 2 Comma Club winner - Franklin Hatchett, he teaches you not only paid traffic methods but free ones too.. You'll also learn a lot more strategies like building funnels, email marketing, SEO, selling on Clickbank, Amazon and more. The methods he teaches have helped me earn more money with my affiliate marketing projects.
The best part is - it's only $197. Don't be fooled by the low price. This course is heavily undervalued and could sell for a lot more. Franklin doesn't gouge his students and wants to make this information affordable and attainable.
Check out my full review on Savage Affiliates to have a better idea of what you are getting. I am sure the decision will be very clear to you after. I'm available for any questions, just visit my contact page to get a hold of me.
Super Affiliate System 2.0 Rating
Information is good but price is quite high and focus is paid advertising only. I’d recommend Savage Affiliates instead and save yourself some cash while learning some kickass methods from a highly successful 7 figure earner coach.
