Having been a student of the Savage Affiliates course by Franklin Hatchett; and having been able to see great success with my Affiliate Marketing businesses through the knowledge I obtained on this course, I feel the time is right to write a Savage Affiliates Review.
The Savage Affiliates course comprises of 9 separate modules running through, in chronological order, the steps you need to take to set up, build and scale a successful Affiliate Marketing business.
There are two versions of Savage Affiliates. For $197 you get the standard plan which is all you need to get started if you’re a beginner. It covers everything from full niche research training, complete website setup, complete email marketing setup training, complete funnel setup & training, Google SEO traffic mastery training and Clickbank/Amazon training. You also get a free and paid traffic training, access to the private inner circle and access to weekly updates and lifetime updates.
For $297 you get access to the Savage Affiliates Super package which includes everything above plus the all new step by step Clickfunnels affiliate academy, multiple done for you affiliate marketing funnels, a launch jacking affiliate method blueprint and a web hosting affiliate method blueprint. For all this, it’s just $100 more at $297. I would recommend this option if you’re an intermediate affiliate marketer or if you want the ‘complete package’.
If you’ve only heard of Affiliate Marketing and are not quite sure what its all about but are keen to start, or if you have tried it already with limited success then this is a course that will be of interest.
Personally, I’ve been able to increase my earnings by $3000 per month (screenshots provided below) due to implementation of the knowledge I’ve learned on this course.
There are quite a few reviews online about the course but most reviewers are clearly not active students. I intend to give you value by providing you with my experience. Ultimately I hope that you can use this information to make your decision.
In a hurry? Looking for a quick final verdict? Here it is. Savage Affiliates is a content-rich, comprehensive step by step training on building a successful online Affiliate Marketing business. Topics are diverse, varied and in-depth ensuring that you can follow along and replicate in real time to ensure that by the end of it, you’ll have an online business set up and running. Content covers the entire process, from how it all works, to finding products to promote, to building a website asset, to using various affiliate programs (Amazon, Clickbank) and then extensive promotional strategies including: Email Marketing, Sales Funnels, SEO, Free Traffic Sources, Paid Traffic sources and more. Lessons are thorough and clearly explained, and the course is consistently being updated and altered to ensure it remains current and relevant. In fact, the Super Affiliates Edition has just been released, whereby all current students get access to the new content for free. Having been a student and earned consistent passive income through the content, strategies and recommendations ($3000 per month), then I would thoroughly suggest you sign up. For a one off price of $197, the course pays back for itself in no time.
Who Is Franklin Hatchett?
If you’ve haven’t heard of Franklin Hatchett by now then you’re probably not been researching Affiliate Marketing on YouTube. He has made considerable earnings online, setting up multiple revenue streams that have earned him over 7 Figures.
He primarily has built his income around two methods: Affiliate Marketing (which is the subject of the Savage Affiliates Course) and Dropshipping (where he also has an extensive training called eCom Elites).
Affiliate Marketing is perhaps his most successful venture; he is a 2 comma club winner with ClickFunnels, meaning that he has earned over $1,000,000 in affiliate revenue by promoting the ClickFunnels Platform to new users.
His YouTube channel has grown to around 168,000 subscribers (at time of writing) due to his regular, useful content on making money online.
Franklin uses YouTube to actively provide recommendations, strategies and content on what he has been successful with and how you can implement some of these yourself.
Why Did I Sign Up?
I’ve been personally following Franklin and his YouTube channel for some time now. I’ve learnt a considerable amount which I regularly put in practice on my Affiliate Marketing Websites, Blogs and Dropshipping Stores. So if you are not a subscriber to his channel, this is the first place I would recommend that you start.
When I initially became aware that Franklin launched an Affiliate Marketing Course called Savage Affiliates, I was excited and keen to sign up.
Sure, I had started making progress in the Affiliate Marketing space but I wanted to leverage new opportunities and new strategies like Paid Traffic methods including Google Ads.
The price he charges for his products are incredibly fair and respectable. When you compare the cost of his courses with others, you soon realize how extortionate some other course prices are.
The thing is, you don’t need to pay $2,999 for an affiliate marketing course. Instead, it makes sense to purchase from a widely experienced and knowledgeable affiliate marketer at a far more affordable and reasonable price of $197.
And because he provides screenshots and financial proof of his own methods, you can fully trust in his process.
New To Affiliate Marketing? What Is It Exactly?
Affiliate marketing is where you promote other peoples/business products, and earn a referral commission on each lead or sale that you generate for them.
The benefit of Affiliate Marketing is that you can get started right away and that you do not need to research or build your own product. Furthermore, you do not need to deal with the difficulties that go with selling that product – customer service is one to name a few.
Once you discover desirable products in popular niches, its then just all about send buyers to the seller. Each time you do so, you will earn a commission.
And perhaps the best part, a lot of commission rates are in the 20-40% range!
As such, Affiliate Marketing is an incredibly profitable industry – and a perfect way to build an online income.
While Affiliate Marketing is not new, there are not many courses out there that provide an exact blueprint and A-Z guide of how you can actually do this yourself. Particularly from a successful Affiliate Marketer who is actually applying what he teaches. That’s where Savage Affiliates truly stands out.
Affiliate Marketing enables you to build a long term income, whereby your earnings scale and become self-sufficient with time. Once you’ve built your asset and your content, provided the foundations and covered the ranking factors – that website and content can earn consistent income for years to come. You can rely on free search traffic through the search engines for as long as your website and content is live.
Affiliate Marketing does not require any technical knowledge, experience or qualifications. You can get started quickly, and the costs are minimal. And there are a lot of free strategies to keep your costs as low as possible. Such strategies are discussed in the course. So, without further ado let’s take a look at what’s included.
Savage Affiliates Review
Savage Affiliates has just been updated in August 2019. Here, I’ll try and provide you with as much information as I can about what you get and whats included.
The course outlines an entire Affiliate Marketing strategy, step-by-step, where you see a rundown of how Franklin is implementing this content on his own affiliate websites.
The best thing about this course is that you are given step-by-step instructions so that you can follow along and replicate the business in a different niche.

Here’s an example of what the Intro Module looks like:
Since signing up, I’ve gone through all of the 125+ videos that are included in the training. You can view them in the quality that you prefer, whether this be 360P or 720P.

The Modules of Savage Affiliates
The Introductory Section is not considered a module, but it does include useful content that you should definitely check out. Lessons cover:
- What Affiliate Marketing is,
- How Affiliate Marketing all works,
- Looking at what is possible (earnings),
- How you will use free traffic,
- How you will use paid traffic,
- How you will use Google and SEO traffic,
- How To Navigate & Follow The Course for Optimal Results.
1. Affiliate Products to Promote
The first module in Savage Affiliates discusses the best and most ideal Affiliate products that you are going to want to promote for increased commissions and high conversion rates.
You learn all about the most profitable niches, like make money online, software and hosting, before turning to how those niches will look in theory once all set up and executed.
Videos that follow cover the main Affiliate Programs, how they work and how you can best profit by signing up to them:
- Clickfunnels Affiliate Program
- Clickbank Affiliate Program
- Amazon Affiliate Program
- Bluehost Affiliate Program
- GetResponse Affiliate Program
- Muncheye Affiliate Program
Ultimately your success, and profits, are dependent on how good the niches you enter and the products that you promote – the videos here ensures you know how to pick the right ones.
Franklin speaks at length on the profitability of the web hosting niche. It can be very lucrative, where each referral can earn you more than $100 per purchase. And whats more, you will earn money on each and every renewal. Imagine gaining a referral for a sale where the customer goes onto host a site for 20 years. That’s serious recurring commission right there.
2. Building Your Website Asset
This module teaches you on how to effectively build a high converting affiliate website.
The entire process is covered, from domain name selection to setting up a WordPress install to having all the relevant pages and structures in place.
Lessons cover the best plugins currently available and the ones that you are going to need for optimal website performance and results. As part of this you’ll also learn what plugins to avoid and how to keep your website running quickly which is essential to search engine rankings and visitor experience.
Videos go on to cover choosing and selecting the best theme for an affiliate marketing site and some affordable and cost effective marketplaces to acquire them.
From there you learn all about adding and writing articles for your website, including optimal layout and structure which include using categories for your content and setting up widgets.
There’s two videos on the important pages you need and what they should include: About and Legal Pages before you turn to collecting subscriber email addresses for your Email Marketing system that you learn about later in the course.
3. Email Marketing and Sales Funnels
Next up, you learn how to build out an entire Email Marketing and Sales Funnel system for your Affiliate Marketing business. These two topics are intertwined and work with one another so they are taught alongside each other in the revamped version of the course.
Email Marketing and Sales Funnels is essentially sending your email list a series of communications around products and offers (utilizing cloaked affiliate links) that enable you to make more commission and additional referral sales. However Franklin covers this in a lot more detail and at length in one of the videos.
This method is dependent on your email list – so you will need to build this over time for optimal results.
- Best Email Software To Use (Overview of GetResponse)
- Adding Subscriber Emails To GetResponse
- How To Create Your Email List
- How To Create A Simple Newsletter
- Create an Automated Workflow
- Introduction to Sales Funnels
- Best Funnel Software to use (ClickFunnels)

As you can see the entire process is covered. You’ll also see in real-time exactly how to complete each step to ensure you set up effectively, and without any errors.
4. Clickbank Affiliate Marketing
The Clickbank module (27 videos) is quite unique in the fact that it un-teaches you a lot of the misinformation out there. There are a lot of affiliate marketing gurus who tell you to use Clickbank, and how easy it is to set up on the platform. This is because literally anyone can create an account in under 5 minutes and you don’t need any approvals. They struggle to teach you how to actually profit from Clickbank products and generate traffic to your offers. That’s where this module proves its worth. It teaches you how to send high volumes of traffic that converts, helping you to earn every 14 days as opposed to the standard 30 days.
The first couple of videos provide the essentials, setting up your account, tax forms and so on. The videos that follow show you how to find the best and most likely to convert products/services through an often ignored filter using ‘gravity.’
Beyond the basics, other videos teach you how to build an entire review website on one Clickbank product alone. You’ll learn how to find profitable and low competition keywords and how to set up your site (themes, widgets, article structure) to ensure you rank highly in the search engines. If you have some spare cash, you can even purchase your articles on marketplaces like Fiverr for as little as $5. This is all taught in this module.
One of the best 2 videos in the module look at funnels; Franklin even uses his affiliate sites as case studies to show you exactly how he does it and how you can too.
5. ClickFunnels Affiliate Marketing (Part One)
This is a brand new module for the relaunch of the course and has over 28 videos of actionable content on profiting as an affiliate with the ClickFunnels Affiliate Marketing Program. Consider that your teacher here has earned over $1,000,000 with this program and continues to do so.
There is not just training covered here but real-time case studies which show you exactly how Franklin has succeeded with the methods that he teaches.
You learn all about the program, the platform and how much you can realistically expect to earn from application of the content.
Two case studies start off the course: one on how Franklin uses Share Funnels and the other on how he uses his Blog to promote the platform.
This module is split into two sections. How to earn through ClickFunnels with Free Traffic (e.g. SEO) and then how to earn through Paid Traffic (ads).

There too much to list here, so in the interest of time you can check out whats covered by clicking here.
6. Amazon Affiliate Marketing
This module looks at the ability to earn money through the Amazon Affiliate Program. Franklin then goes on to show how profitable this can be – citing a a $30 million Amazon affiliate site. Whilst this would be difficult to replicate, it’s possible:
The Savage Affiliate Course teaches you one of the most important lessons in Affiliate Marketing; how to conduct proper research. Without proper research you could end up wasting your time, money and resources. This is even more important with affiliate marketplaces like Amazon.
As such, Franklin explains the methods to review page one of Google and how to rank higher. He does this by explaining how to look at their current backlinks, social media shares and content relevance. Once you gather this kind of data, it is incredibly easy to rank higher than them – because you have a tangible target to aim for. You know what you need to build and where to build it.
The videos in the module explain how to set up an Amazon affiliate. This includes how to write your articles all the way through to how your site is put together.
You will also learn the different options open to you: whether you want an Affiliate Amazon site to be niche specific or general. In my own experiences, niche websites provide more trust with your audience, however you are relatively limited in what your articles can promote!
Like some of the other modules, you can see case studies of Amazon Affiliate sites and how entrepreneurs are making a killing with these kind of sites
My girlfriend is using this method from Savage Affiliates and has created a niche website on ‘Almond Nails’. She has written some Amazon Affiliate articles such as: the ‘Best Gel Nail Kits’. We’re earning commission on each and every sale of any kit that a visitor then goes on to buy!
7. SEO Google Traffic Training
The SEO Traffic module is one of the most important for any online business; whether you get into Affiliate Marketing. Here, Franklin teaches you how to rank higher in Google and in other search engines like Bing.
Franklin exposes his entire SEO strategy he uses on his site – both
- On-Page SEO – how to effectively structure your website, ensure the website speed is high, and the internal links that connects your site all together.
- Off-Page SEO – how to connect your site to the internet, obtain backlinks from other sites such as Web 2.0s (Tumblrs, Blogpsots) and Forum Posts.
You can also watch videos on how to track your search engine ranking – through tools such as Google Webmasters and Google Analytics.
You’ll also learn how to set up your Social Media profiles and how to engage on these platforms without wasting your time on them unnecessarily. As social media is part of the algorithm with ranking, this video is very helpful.
This module in it-self is an in-depth SEO course. Franklin could actually sell this as a standalone course and charge over $400 dollars for it. The fact that you are getting this free as part of the Savage Affiliate Course is incredible.
8. Free Traffic Training
In the Free Traffic Training module of Savage Affiliates, you learn how to make maximal profit because your costs are essentially zero. This module relates to the earlier SEO module, but elaborates further into other free traffic sources like Forums and YouTube.
It is through taking advantage of free traffic channels that ensure that you can make the passive income that Franklin suggests you can.
I’ve been into Affiliate Marketing only for a small time, and making commissions like the below is a regular occurrence due to the methods I’ve learnt from experts like Franklin:
In the videos in the section, you can expect to learn how to increase the size of your subscriber list by obtaining traffic from Free sites such as Forums and YouTube. You’ll be taught how to set up your own YouTube channel and start creating videos of your own. These videos will link back to your affiliate sites and send you high converting traffic. You’ll learn what keywords to go to maximize your results that are platform specific.
9. Paid Traffic Training
With Affiliate Marketing, one of the best ways to profit is through free organic traffic – through Google and other search engines. However, paid traffic is an option and can be immensely profitable if set up right. Remember, if you do not target the right keywords, go after the right audience, or set up your content in the right way, you are literally burning your cash away. That’s where this module is great.
In the Paid Traffic Training module you can access 23 videos that include training on Facebook, Solo Ads (like Udimi) and CPC networks such as Google Adwords
Facebook Ads are pretty popular right now and have been insanely profitable for many including Franklin. As such, several of the videos teach you how to run laser targeted and effective Facebook ads.
As mentioned earlier in this Savage Affiliates Review, you can learn to set up your tracking pixel and how to set up a converting funnel that doesn’t get blocked or banned from Facebook.
Moreover, Franklin provides you with brilliant Facebook ad case studies to show you what you can expect.
The next mini-section in this module, turns to solo ads. The concept here is that you’ll be purchasing traffic off other Affiliate Marketers who have already built up there list. The videos include how to find the best sellers and prevent purchasing fake or bot clicks. You’ll even learn the marketplaces to use and avoid; showing you the ones that will filter out bot traffic and only send you quality traffic.
Regarding CPC Adwords, the videos run you through setting up a campaign from start to finish. If set up wrong, your ads can scale out of control and become immensely costly. Franklin teaches you how to avoid this and how to target the best keywords for minimal cost and maximum profit.
Access to Private Facebook Group
The moment you purchase your access to Savage Affiliates, you will instantly gain access to the private Savage Affiliates Facebook group. This is where Franklin personally posts updates and shares his latest methods. You’ll see further case studies and the results from other members on the course.
You can discuss and gain feedback from other members if you get stuck. This is a the first place you should go to as other students that have enrolled on the course can help you.
30 Money Back Guarantee
To ensure that you are fully satisfied with the course, there is a full 30 day risk free money back guarantee.
The only thing I would say is that Affiliate Marketing does not provide immediate overnight success, like say dropshipping can. It does take a bit of time, especially if your site is new, doesn’t have much content or doesn’t have much authority if you have not acquired many backlinks. Once you start ranking in Google, the true value of the course will be repaid.
