Welcome to my Lazy Affiliate Method Review!
In recent years, affiliate marketing has become one of the most popular ways you can make money online. This could be attributed to the fact that it promises a considerable amount of profits without requiring you to come up with a product of your own. However, it is not as straightforward as one might believe.
If you have ever tried your hand at affiliate marketing, you might have come across a couple of products and training promising to give you an edge over competitors and increase your income in the process. This review takes a look at Lazy Affiliate Method, one such tool, to help you determine if it is worth investing in.
WHAT IS LAZY AFFILIATE METHOD?
Lazy Affiliate Method is a product by Kevin Fahey that is described as a DFY (done for you) system. You are provided with squeeze pages, email copies, and thank you pages (to mention a few) to help you start earning commissions through affiliate marketing. The system also includes a series of 16 training videos that are intended to help you set up and get started generating leads and sales. According to the sales page, Lazy Affiliate Method includes the following:

As you might have noticed, the recommended autoresponder is Aweber. If you already have an active subscription to this email autoresponder provider, you should have an easy time uploading the provided DFY emails. On the other hand, if you don’t use Aweber, then you will be forced to manually copy and then paste the provided email content into the autoresponder you are using. It is also worth noting that the lowest pricing tier on Aweber costs $19 per month.
It is also worth mentioning that to use the Lazy Affiliate Method, you are encouraged to have either Thrive Themes or Optimize Press as page builder tools so that the capture pages work as they should. Optimize Press costs $97, while Thrive Themes costs $17 per month.

If you are new to affiliate marketing, you will find quite a bit of useful information in the training that may help you start making money as an affiliate. It is worth noting that the information provided is basic, which means that more experienced affiliates may not find the Lazy Affiliate Method particularly useful.
- The information is provided in video format
The training is provided in the form of step-by-step videos that are easy to follow. In my opinion, information that is provided in video format is often easier to understand as compared to written and audio formats.
- It comes with a money-back guarantee
Lazy Affiliate Method comes with a 14-day money-back guarantee. This means that you are given the option to return the product and demand a refund in case the results that you get from putting it to use fail to live up to the hype. To qualify for the refund, you will need to send an email to the Lazy Affiliate Method support team within the first 14 days of your purchase.
- The front-end price is reasonable
The front-end price of the product is $27. This is quite affordable, plus it is enough to gain access to some useful training in the members’ area.
- There are upsells
In addition to the initial product, you are encouraged to buy two additional products which come with the promise of higher and faster earnings. Therefore, you might end up investing more money than expected in the system.
- Hidden costs to consider
Once you access the members’ area, you will realize that you have to invest your money in an autoresponder as well as a page builder tool to get started. Aweber is the recommended autoresponder, costing $19 per month (for the cheapest plan), while you get to choose between Optimize Press ($97) and Thrive Themes ($17 per month) for a page builder tool.
- There is no guarantee you will make earnings with this system
Although you are reassured that you will find success with this product, the disclaimer states otherwise. As per the disclaimer, there is no guarantee that you will make any money from promoting or using the product.
- Hyped up claims
On the sales page, it is made to seem like you will only need 30 minutes of your day to make money with Lazy Affiliate Method. This is a misleading exaggeration that is meant to encourage you to buy the product. You are also led to believe there is not much to do when in reality you will need to do quite a bit of setting before you start making money.
- There is not much learned from a DFY system
DFY systems such as Lazy Affiliate Method are meant to make it easier for you to make money as an affiliate, but in the long run, you will not gain much knowledge on affiliate market ting and how to go about it on your own, as a result, in case anything happens to the system, you won’t have the skills and knowledge to re-establish yourself.
Lazy Affiliate Method provides you with a legitimate strategy that you can use to make money online, and there is potential if you are ready to put in the effort, time, and money. However, the system has several shortcomings, and there is no guarantee you will make money with it. It uses the affiliate marketing method which is a plus. But I think it overly complicates things.
WHAT IS BETTER THAT LAZY AFFILIATE METHOD?
