Super Affiliate Accelerator Review
The Super Affiliate Accelerator Course by Jacob Caris is a 6 week training program all around high-ticket Affiliate Marketing. It includes videos, blueprints, frameworks, weekly Q&A calls and access to a private community to help you implement the strategies outlined.
The course serves as an extension to his free content on YouTube. It was launched in early 2020.
It strives to be a complete course – teaching you the fundamentals of marketing and sales.
Content is focused on teaching you how to build a profitable affiliate marketing business, a personal brand and how to grow a loyal audience.
All of which should be willing to purchase higher-priced products through your links, and that you recommend.
This is essentially the premise of the training and of affiliate marketing. Your success is entirely dependent on how you are able to convert.
For Jacobs strategy; the focus is on expensive products; so you need to make less conversions for higher commissions. Great in theory, but a challenge to implement.
Let us know take a closer look at the course content, and specifically what is covered:
The Super Affiliate Accelerator Course is split into 11 distinct modules; each covering a different topic and aspect of the business.
The content should take you 6 weeks to get through, according to Jacobs estimations.

Videos here include an overview of the high ticket affiliate marketing strategy, how to get the most out of the program and how to join the private mastermind group.

The Super Affiliate Accelerator by Jacob Caris aims to be the training course to help individuals build a six figure high ticket online affiliate marketing business.
While this sounds great, and it does appear that Jacob has had a lot of success with this business model and knows what he is doing, I have my reservations on this course.
Firstly, we have to consider the price. At $2000 (or $2400 if you pay in three installments) this is not a cheap course. In fact, even with multiple high-ticket sales you are still unlikely to have recouped your investment. And that’s assuming that everything goes to plan.
In reality, its not the case. Not all affiliate marketers succeed. This is precisely why you see the earnings disclaimer on the bottom of the sales page. Read that and you will see what I mean.
Going further, and a major downside of the course, there is a strict no refund policy!
So, if you did decide to bite the bullet and invest a lot of money in the course – your cash has gone forever and you are stuck with the course, irregardless of your opinions or views.
I personally find this strange, and it is a red flag as far as I am concerned.
Thirdly, another issue I have with this course is it being high-ticket in application.
Sure, high-ticket sounds like a dream; but it is often more competitive. All affiliate marketers want to earn as much as possible, so high-ticket tends to be very competitive.
Equally, high ticket items generally are a harder sale; they require a lot more work to get a customer over the line.
Then, this leads us to marketing strategies. Content, Facebook Messenger, Facebook Ads and phone calls are the main ones covered.
It would have been great to have seen some videos on Email Marketing and Sales Funnels; two important and timeless approaches that work very well for Affiliate Marketing. Especially on high ticket products/services that need that extra work to convert and get over the line.
So, with these things in mind, I would like to suggest an alternative.
Savage Affiliates by Franklin Hatchett comes in at a tenth of the price and is one of the most comprehensive affiliate marketing courses I have come across online.
The creator, Franklin Hatchett, with over 275k subscribers on YouTube, is another affiliate marketer and practitioner you’ll want to check out. He has won a 2 Comma Award with ClickFunnels; just going to show his ability to acquire leads and convert online.
My Savage Affiliates Review and Case Study outlines all that is included course and why I am such a keen advocate of signing up.
In a nutshell; it covers every affiliate marketing strategy and angle you will need for any online business – plus it is routinely updated and has that private mastermind group too.
So, if you want to save some money upfront and get a course that provides you with all the training you need, head over to Savage Affiliates and/or read my review.
Its in your interest.
