Spencer provides valuable content in his Facebook Group and on his YouTube channel through free training and tutorials.
ClickFunnels VP Dave Woodward sat down with Spencer for an interview to go over some of the tactics that helped Spencer crush it with promoting the product. You can listen to the interview here.
Spencer also teamed up with ClickFunnels recently with two awesome project. The first was to explain what he would do in the first 30 days if he had to start all over again with his business and only had an internet connection.
In conjunction with 29 other entrepreneurs, they each sent in incredible, creative blueprints for how to get their business back up and rolling again, and generating income and leads in just ONE MONTH.

This includes a 100-day action plan for each of the 15 top affiliates and what they would do to recreate that full-time income they are making with affiliate marketing.
You can find this training in the Affiliate Bootcamp series.
Now that you understand better who Spencer Mecham is and why you should care about what he has to teach, I want to dive into this Affiliate Secrets 2.0 review and talk in-depth about the course and let you know what you can expect.
What is Affiliate Secrets 2.0?
Affiliate Secrets 2.0 is an affiliate marketing video course that shows you how to get started with affiliate marketing, explains why affiliate marketing is so powerful, why companies love having affiliates on their side, and how you can find high ticket affiliate programs to promote.
If you’re sick of guessing how to have success and wondering what you should be doing to get an affiliate marketing business up and running then Spencer’s course will put you on the fast track to success.
Tony Robbins has said, “If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved results you want and copy what they do and you’ll achieve the same results.”
So if making over a million dollars a year in affiliate marketing is the result that YOU want, then understanding what Spencer Mecham does is something you’ll want to invest in.
What Makes Affiliate Secrets 2.0 Different?
Spencer revamped his Affiliate Secrets 1.0 course with this new release because he wanted to take a deeper dive into many of the incredible ways to drive traffic to your offers.
In order to gather the material for the traffic portion of his video training, he called on experts to talk about Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Quora to shoot their video trainings explaining how to optimize these platforms to drive traffic to your affiliate offers.
You’ll learn about driving traffic to your offers through:
- Instagram taught by Josh Ryan
- Quora taught by Jelani Abdus-Salaam
- Facebook Groups by Jonny West
- YouTube by Spencer himself
- Facebook Ads by Jarem Atkinson
- Google Adwords by Spencer Mecham
Spencer himself touches on YouTube and Google Adwords, and with the addition of these other outsourced trainings ending up having to release a whole separate course on traffic sources.
What this means is that when you sign up for Affiliate Secrets 2.0, you are actually receiving 2 courses within 1 because there is so much good information that Spencer decided to release them in two modules.
Who is Affiliate Secrets 2.0 For?
Affiliate Marketing isn’t for everyone. You need to have one of two things, or both, to succeed. One, you need patience. If you are going to try and become successful with affiliate marketing, you need to understand that building your business will take time. Much of what you do involves producing content that lives online and it takes months for Google to realize who you are and that you mean business.
If you don’t have the patience or the time, this isn’t the business model for you.
The other thing that you need if you don’t have the patience is the skill to use money to expedite the success of your business. This is done through paid advertising. You either have to invest a lot of time or a lot of money. Each has a path to success, you just need to decide where you fit.
Spencer’s course teaches you how to have success with both models but Spencer flat out tells you that he achieved most of his success through paid advertising.
If you want to learn to use Google Ads to send traffic to your offers then this course is something you will want to invest in. Spencer breaks down the Google ads auction and how that works, and spends a ton of time explaining what factors Google looks at when determining which ads will be placed in the highest rank on their search results.
I was literally blown away when taking this course because I had the epiphany that for me the missing link was my lack of experience with Google ads. This propelled me to learn even more and start launching my own ads.
Affiliate Secrets 2.0 is for you if you see yourself in one of these buckets:
- You are looking to start a side hustle and affiliate marketing interests you
- The 9-5 isn’t leaving you feeling fulfilled
- You want the freedom to travel and work from a laptop
- Affiliate marketing makes no sense to you and you wish there was a course that could explain it A-Z
- You are leery of scams and want someone you can trust (Spencer is full of integrity)
- Affiliate marketing has kind of worked for you but you want to scale up with paid advertising
What’s in Affiliate Secrets 2.0?
As I mentioned before, the video training is split into two sections. In the first part of the training, Spencer covers the following topics:
- Gameplan (Module 1)
- Spencer dives into what affiliate marketing is and the principles you’ll need to understand and live by to have success
- Finding Hot Buyers (Module 2)
- How do you find people who are interested in what you are selling? Spencer talks about the importance of putting the right offer in front of the right buyer
- Traffic Legion – (Module 3) this is section 2
- Hidden Bank Account (Module 4)
- How do you help people to see the value in your product? The three purposes of value are explained as it pertains to building an audience that will be with you forever.
- Automation Templates (Module 5)
- Spencer explains how to automate his processes with sales funnels which have been one of the key elements of his success.
- Offer, Offer, Offer (Module 6)
- Knowing how to sell and knowing what to sell are two entirely different things. Spencer explains how he goes about choosing products and even let’s you know which products he has had the most success with.
- Follow-Up Automation (Module 7)
- Want to grow your business long term? Then email marketing is your missing link. Spencer dives deep and explains how he indoctrinates his subscribers and how he keeps those open rates high.
- Outsourcing (Module 8)
- As your business grows, it is imperative that you are able to outsource and take advantage of other people’s skills and other people’s time. Spencer talks about his process of recruiting, hiring, and outsourcing to help build his business.
and the Traffic Module contains:
- Solo Ads
- Facebook Groups
- Facebook Ads

What I Don’t Like About Affiliate Secrets 2.0
1: Emphasis on Paid Traffic
While Spencer does go over all of the different traffic methods by inviting experts in those chosen arenas because Spencer’s personal success came from paid advertising there is definitely a heave focus on that method.
Spencer teaches some YouTube tips but as far as using search engine optimation and blogging, there is not a ton of actionable steps. If this is what you are specifically looking for, you might want to consider investing in another course like SEO Affiliate Domination by Gregg Jeffries.
I’ll be honest, I’m cheap. And this course costs $897. That was a lot of money for me. At the same time, my mindset with money has been jaded my whole life. I’ve also told myself, “I can’t afford it.”
If you are the same way, then you won’t have success with affiliate marketing.
You need to break free from that mentality and start thinking, “How can I afford this?” instead of passing on valuable things because you feel like you are poor.
So while I’ll say that I didn’t like the price I WILL say that if you are going to buy this course plan on buying this course and IMPLEMENTING before you buy any other course.
TAKE ACTION with what you are learning and you will see results. Those results will motivate you to take more action.
Affiliate Secrets Results
I would consider Affiliate Secrets 2.0 to be a reference guide. It is something that needs to be gone through once, and then again.
It’s an incredible resource as well to go back through when specific questions arise.
I frequently will have a question and go back into the course to find an answer about traffic, or Seinfeld email sequences, or Pinterest.
There is a lot of material in there and you will view it more as a reference guide as time goes on because you aren’t going to be able to learn everything in one sitting.
But the real question is, will it help me get results?
My buddy Chris Fong talks about this in his review. Here is what he had to say:
How Affiliate Secrets Helped Me Qualify for the ClickFunnels Dream Car
I’ve always been good at SEO and ranking my posts on Google. But as a pure affiliate marketer I used to be pretty dumb. All I would do is write my content, slap on a few affiliate links and call it a day.
For a lot of affiliate programs, that actually worked, and I was able to make a decent income and pretend I was a good affiliate marketer.
But ClickFunnels was a different beast.
First of all, it’s not cheap, starting at $97 a month. And there’s a definite learning curve to using it properly in your business. But most of all, you’re competing against an army of other crazed ClickFunnels affiliates who are offering tons of value to get people to sign up under their link.
So my lazy man’s way of affiliate marketing had no chance. And I struggled for a long time trying to make any ClickFunnels commissions at all, even with my targeted traffic.
But this changed when I purchased Spencer’s Affiliate Secrets. I’ve bought a lot of courses over the years, but not many of them have impacted my business like it did.
While I learned a lot from all the modules in the course, the one on Value (module #4) was the one that really hit home for me.
After watching it, it made me realize that I needed to change my ways if I wanted to be successful promoting ClickFunnels. Instead of passively “hoping” that people would click on my affiliate links, I needed to give people a real reason to want to buy from me.
That meant thinking of high value, relevant bonuses I could add to my ClickFunnels offer. Including putting myself out there an offering my referrals direct access to me via FB messenger.
It took me about five months to tweak, test and finalize my amazing bonus package, but once I did, my ClickFunnels earnings exploded like this.
Affiliate Secrets 2.0 Bonus Bundle
