The Insiders Guide To Affiliate Marketing by David Sharpe [Review] Recommended

By Ray Alexander

If you are new to online business and looking to take a shortcut step to success, welcome to my Insiders Guide To Affiliate Marketing review. This ebook by David Sharpe is good. I'll show you a sneak preview of the content and explain why I think it's worth a read.

I'd say, don't waste your time (and money) looking for the books on Amazon or relying on some general guide PDFs that are available for free here & there, if you're looking for guidance. Get this one instead. Of course, I'm not saying all others aren't as good as this. But I have two main reasons to recommend Dave Sharpe;

  1. Because he's current, he's selling (means he's trustworthy), and he shares his practical do's and don'ts with readers. He's real.
  2. Because the content is pretty intense, in the sense that every part of this book is straight-talking and meaningful. 

Intense doesn't mean serious and scary because Dave Sharpe is a friendly, down-to-earth guy. But in this manual, there are NO big decorative words that many network marketers use that don't actually mean anything, you know what I mean? It's approachable, put it this way.

What Is The Insider's Guide To Affiliate Marketing?

The name actually says it all. It's a 92-page manual to affiliate marketing, but not a complete guide. If you've been working on your new affiliate business based on all the generally accepted "how-to" concept, some of Dave's words may surprise you, or open your eyes.

It consists of 12 chapters across 3 parts; setting up, running it, and the growth. It's all based on Dave's own experience and the facts that the "insiders" know. Therefore this is, I wouldn't say just a "good read", but it's full of actionable tips.

If you've been wondering why this is sold so cheap for the price of $1.99 - that's almost nothing - this ebook is sold as a doorway to his paid training materials and the ultimate training course, Legendary Marketer. The book comes with 4 x free bonuses, all of which are part of Legendary Marketer's "15-day free challenge" package.

What's Missing From This Book?

If you can learn all about affiliate marketing from this "Insider's Guide" and it's full of actionable tips, why should you consider taking his paid training course? What doesn't this book teach you?

Well, you can apply the techniques you learn from the book. The techniques such as copywriting that works, a sales page layout that proves to sell, the most effective funnel flow that sells, and YouTube video production to drive traffic. But if you are brand new, you probably wouldn't know which tool (website builder) to use to start with. You would probably want some help in building your own unique version of your sales funnel while making sure that it's the one that sells. 

Basically, nothing is missing from it. The book works as an essential read before you dive into your no-mistake affiliate marketing business. I hope this makes sense.

The Contents

Dave Sharpe Event

When I first read the introduction/forword "Why I Wrote This Book", I loved it and couldn't help but scroll right down to read the closing words "More Wisdom For My Children That I'll Share With You" before the first chapter. Forewords and epilogues can sometimes be too personal to the author and quite patronizing to the readers at times. But Dave's words are, I guess, relatable to any of us who are ordinary who wish to have a perpetual success online.

An advice from a guru can be so philosophical that we don't get it, but Dave's advice in his introduction and the closing words is actually helpful. I won't reveal much here, but at least that's what I personally felt.

Why Should You Get This Book?

Dave Sharpe Affiliate Marketing Book

I was thinking about why I was so drawn to David Sharpe... 

In short, he's a great speaker and a great writer. Not a single sentence in this book did I find boring or meaningless. I found it useful throughout, and every chapter exciting. His words come from the heart and the examples come from his actual experience. 

Dave's in his late 30's, he's not a machine gun talking, all hyped-up, full of adrenaline kind of guy (like many young online tutors). His event audience is from a variety of age groups, including many seniors. He knows that we all digest information differently at different speeds, he never assumes that we're all in the same state of mind. So the words he uses are universal and easy to understand. He understands us, which means likewise, it all makes sense when he tells us how we can understand customers' psychology while talking about sales pages. His words are credible. That's how I feel.

Free Bonuses

  • Bonus 1: Access to the Legendary Marketer's "15-Day Challange". This is useful particularly if you are brand new and seriously want to sell high-ticket items to make good profits from the beginning. Also if you've been trying for a while but you're not quite getting the level of online income you want. The full review can be viewed here.
  • Bonus 2: Personal 1-on-1 business plan consultation with an adviser. This, and also the bonus 3 & 4 are all part of the 15-Day Challenge. The consultation seems to be a hit & miss depending on the adviser that's allocated to you. I had a very nice, chatty and helpful person to speak to. But I've seen some people complain that they're simply a salesperson encouraging to buy the main Legendary Marketer course.
  • Bonus 3: "Affiliate Domination" ads, email templates, video and phone scripts. I've found some of them useful. Phone scripts are frankly a cold-call manual, I appreciate the fact that speaking to people personally is the way to scale up your business dramatically but I'm not doing that. You don't have to follow everything if you don't want to. It's up to you.
  • Bonus 4: Access to the Legendary Marketer's private Facebook group with almost 20,000 members. Very active and you get a lot of advice and support from it.

"The most valuable thing I've ever done!"

30-Day Money-Back Guarantee

If you get this one and don't think it's worth paying $1.99 for, you'll be covered by the "no question asked" guarantee. You can email the support or call the number and claim a full refund within 30 days of purchase. 

But to be honest with you, if you find nothing to learn from this ebook and feel the need to have your two dollars back, you're not going very far with your affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a business and just like any other businesses it involves a lot of trying, testing and investing a lot of money to make more money along the way. $1.99 is really, nothing.

The Insiders Guide To Affiliate Marketing Pros and Cons


  • Relatable to anyone who struggles to make money online.
  • Easy to understand. NO jargons or unrealistic provisions to alienate us.
  • Low cost + bonuses.
  • 30-day money-back guarantee.


  • It's not a complete affiliate marketing guide.

The Insiders Guide To Affiliate Marketing Review - Conclusion:

This ebook is packed full of information and I believe some advice from Dave can be eye-opening to new affiliate marketing hopefuls. With free access to the Legendary Marketer's "15-Day Challenge" as a bonus, I definitely think it's worth paying just under $2 for. Recommended.

  1. This is a very nice program, should be very proud to have already enhanced affiliate marketing experience benefiting from all kinds of ppc, cpa commissions etc from high ticket items. Everything you need to know about is in this program hats off to David Sharpe. I even discovered that many prospects would come back again & again to learn essential and vital skills. The Insiders Guide will let you launch your affiliate marketing successfully and earn commissions very fast and easily.

  2. Thanks for details about the book. I am new to Affiliate Marketing.
    How much investment needed to start with Affiliate marketing?
    I already own a website. What else needed apart from this? Which platform is considered to find the niche product?

    Regarding 15 day challenge, how much time I need to invest daily?

    1. Hi Mak, thanks for your comment. You have a very nice website. You’ve chosen to start content marketing with your website to drive organic traffic, I don’t think you need to spend any more money unless you want to start using paid ads and traffic service. I do believe you need a good premium keyword tool though, which would cost $20-$50 per month which I think is worth it. I’ve seen too many bloggers who use a free keyword tool and don’t get the right words to rank.

      But David Sharpe’s program is nothing about SEO – it’s a different method and, if you want to carry on with your website, I think the book may “distract you” from what you’re hoping to do? Any more questions don’t hesitate to get back to me. I wish you all the best!

  3. Hello- I appreciated your review and got the book but the question is can I really make my online business a success? I guess not with this one. But I cannot afford to pay Legendary marketer scheme. Is there a cheaper course you recommend? thanks

  4. Why is it so cheap. What is the catch? You can read the book and receive free training for 15 days and leave. it’s all too good to be true?

    1. Hi, no there’s no catch. As I explained in the post, the book is a doorway to the Legendary Marketer course. If you take the 15-Day challenge and don’t like it, yes, you can just leave. But the book is worth paying money for if you are seriously interested! Thanks for your comment. If you have any more questions don’t hesitate to get back to me.

  5. Hi Ray, I’m glad I read this review because I previously knew about Legendary Marketer but wasn’t sure how it made up to be worthy of such an expensive course but now I read your review at least the book is worth reading and for such a low price I’m seriously thinking about getting it for myself. You say it’s eye opening but do you also recommend it to someone with a lot of experience, or no experience?

    1. Hi Tomasz, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I’d definitely recommend it to those who have little or no experience in affiliate marketing. For experienced marketers, I think it’s good to learn how Dave Sharpe sells from the way he talks? That’s my personal opinion. For such a low cost, you won’t lose anything. Thanks for your comment Tomasz, appreciate it.

  6. Hey, great review. The tips may be actionable I guess you will learn something from it.
    But I’m not too sure about the guy & the method. Youtube is not the only way to drive traffic. but I feel as if I’m told if I can’t do Youtube I’m a failure

    1. Hi Kamil, Dave never says YouTube is not the only way to drive traffic, though he does say the absolute best traffic comes from it. You can also learn other techniques from the course. I can’t do YouTube either and I never feel like a “failure”. If you need any help don’t hesitate to ask. Thanks for your comment.
