Hello and welcome to my website. I am sure you have heard of being an online entrepreneur, but what about a digital entrepreneur? So what is a digital entrepreneur? What is the Yoonla Affiliate program?
This is new to me as an inspiring entrepreneur. I have not dealt with a CPA (cost per action) affiliate before. So let’s dig in to see what it really is and what it is about, shall we?
Digital marketing according to Wikipedia
In essence what this means is there isn’t a PHYSICAL product and are all digital. Some may not even require the use of the Internet..
According to Study.com
Digital marketers can market to cell phones through smart phones, dumb phones and even tablets. This can include a website and social media channels etc.
What Is CPA
Cost Per Action or also known as PPA (pay per acquisition) as well as cost per conversion according to Wikipedia in an online advertising pricing model where the advertiser pays for a specified acquisition-for example a sale, click or form submit.
So what this means is that if a customer/reader takes action you and the advertiser get compensated/paid for them taking action on what you are advertising.
Usually this is lead generated, The customer/reader will need to submit their email address phone number etc. The best part about this method is that you don’t have to SELL something in order to make money.
It is said that this method is more strict in order to cut out the scammers and spammers. They only want honest affiliates, and unfortunately we know all to many of the platforms out there don’t care as long as they are making a buck.
So Let’s Take A Closer Look At Yoonla
I created my account with them and it is a MLM. You are required to purchase other services in order to make this system work.
To me, that is a strike against them. How is it considered free if you can’t truly utilize it without it costing you money somewhere else?
When you are JUST starting the training they are going to try to get you to claim your FREE priority setup and Elite upgrade for $297.
They try to get you to believe there are only a few spots open for this upgrade, yet you will see it a couple of times. That to me is considered yet another strike.
If your platform for digital marketing is truly that good then you DON’T need to mislead those who might be interested or those that have just joined. Who are they trying to convince? Us or themselves?
You are going to have to get an auto responder in order to be productive with Yoonla. I suggest you find a free one, If you use the services that Yoonla want you to, then Yoonla gets a commission from your sign up with those services.
I guess this idea MAY NOT be such a bad one if you are truly able to remain a free member with Yoonla. You can set up a free 30 trial membership with GetResponse
If Yoonla doesn’t have products or services to sell then I definitely don’t see the purpose of being a member. This would also explain why members do not stay long. Who wants to be a part of a program where the only option is to get referrals?
Products And Services Offered
Through very thorough examination I have found no products or services to promote other than Yoonla itself. The training encourages you to become affiliates of Amazon, EBay etc. only to promote Yoonla.
This makes absolutely no sense to me. Yoonla offers training on affiliate marketing. But yet there is no talk about using Yoonla to do this.
Is it covered in a different part of training? Let’s find out, shall we? My account was completely set up, yet no sign of how I am able to promote and actual PRODUCT through Amazon or any other marketer.
I have only found that I can USE the training in order to promote other products. What this REALLY means is that I can use what I learned from the training to promote other products, not that I can promote them on their platform.
I have even searched Google with “how do I promote other products on Yoonla” as well as other phrases. All I get are Yoonla reviews.
I searched in Quora.com as well. I was placed in a forum of questions, but my question wasn’t one of them. I will wait to see if I get an answer and then update this post if I don’t receive it before I publish this.
My Final Thought
If you are wanting to become an affiliate marketer of any kind, there needs to be a product or service of some kind to promote. Here the only thing being promoted is Yoonla and they are making money from others signing up with GetResponse and Yahoo Small Business.
If you want to join Yoonla to get the gist of affiliate marketing or digital marketing, then I don’t think you will learn to much. You aren’t really being taught how to become a digital marketer or an affiliate marketer at all.
There are so many steps to be ab;e to become a successful marketer. What they are trying to teach me, isn’t right. They are basically only showing you how to spend money in order to generate leads.
To join Yoonla in order to get paid a buck or 2 for someone clicking on your link and providing their information, I would say no.
I had to pay for other tools in order to make money with Yoonla and I don’t want to do that when I am only getting paid if someone clicks or if someone joins and chooses a paid membership?
If I am not really promoting anything other than Yoonla. I don’t really think that I will get enough people to click, enter their information or join as a premium member, to really pay off for the work and money that I have to put into it?
Especially knowing that there isn’t an actual product or that I can’t promote other ACTUAL products on their platform. I already know that they have many members that leave and I can see why.
On Another Note
The services you HAVE to have, are GetResponse, the cheapest plan is $15 a month and Yahoo Small Business for hosting is $5.89 a month but is paid annually so that is around $70.68. The prices in the training video are wrong.
I could not get the cheapest package for Yahoo Small Business because it doesn’t have the features I will need for promoting Yoonla. Or should I say, so Yoonla can set everything up for me.
Granted that price is for a year, but the chances of having someone join Yoonla and pay for one of the premium memberships are slim to none.
I had to create a list for leads in order to get others to join or at least click on my link and fill in their information. The chances of this happening are not worth all of this.
The percentage of someone actually doing what I need them to do are not very good. I would need to generate at least 1000 leads in order to get approximately 10 or less of them to actually take action.
Something else, when I got to the end of the setup I was a winner of a free Evolve Elite Upgrade & Priority Setup. Now, how am I supposed to earn commissions if someone “upgrades” when they are giving the upgrade for FREE?
I am still required to sign up with GetResponse and Yahoo small business, and then give Yoonla all my login and password information for those accounts in order for them to set EVERYTHING up for me. Umm, no. I will not do that.
If you are looking to really learn about affiliate marketing in a step by step basis with video lessons, and letting you pick your own products to promote from ANY affiliate, then feel free to check out a review I have done on another platform.
I believe in a company being honest with its members, Yoonla may have been honest, but they word everything so that you don’t catch what they may be saying.
The members reviews are just that. Members reviews. They are NOT making thousands of dollars a month. Reno Van Boven is the one who is profiting from everyone signing up with HIS affiliates, GetResponse and Yahoo.
Check out the review above if you are interested in affiliate marketing. You will really be taught how and what to do and you can set it up the way you want and it can be based on something that YOU enjoy.
If you have any questions, concerns or comments, I would love to hear them. I love responding. If you have been a member I would definitely love to hear about your HONEST experience. Good or bad.
Wishing you the best in all you do
