Affiliate Nation Review (Buyer Beware)


Affiliate Nation wants to help you launch your next business. Not teach you how to sell your own course. Not mentor you and then you have to do it all yourself. Nope, they’ve created a virtual business in a box where 99% of the heavy lifting has already been done for you. Why would they do this? In a word, money. When you get paid, they get paid. Confused? Me too. Scroll down for my Affiliate Nation review.

Affiliate Nation claims they pay the highest commissions in the industry. Here’s how it works. They’ve got a fully automated business that’s ready to go. Good leads, a proper system, a quality product, and stone cold closers. Oh, and get this, says the pitchman in the YouTube ad I just watched, when one of your referrals buys, you get paid $2,500. Even if they put zero down and come in on an itty-bitty pay plan. No wonder complete beginners are winning super fast with this, he adds.

Hmm. I’m still confused. What are you actually selling that’s paying such big commissions? And if they do 99% of everything for you, why do they need you? I did some digging. Affiliate Nation was created by a bunch of guys: Dylan Alarie (from the ad), Shane Carling, Jordon Rowse, David Trachsel, Michael Mossino, and Justin Cartwright. They consider themselves a dream team. Supposedly, each of the cofounders has built a six or seven figure business online, and now they’ve joined forces to help the little guy succeed.

Affiliate Nation has created what they call a digital franchise model. They’re hooking you up with a proven, plug-and-play system you can run from anywhere with WiFi. Again, it features in-demand, big ticket offers; prebuilt, high-converting sales funnels; copy and paste ads you can run on social media; and an inside sales team.


It took a while, but eventually they revealed the product you’d be selling: Unify Travel Club. Which is basically one of those “pay us $7,000 for possible discounts on luxury vacations to places you may or may not want to go, on dates that probably won’t work with your schedule” offers. Also, an opportunity that was likely created solely to help affiliate marketers earn bigger commissions.

It gets weirder though. Guess who’s in the pitch video for Unify Travel Club? Yep, Dylan Alarie, the same dude that’s in all the videos promoting Affiliate Nation. Gee, you don’t think there’s any bias when they say Unify Travel Club is the best high ticket offer ever, do you? Guys, this thing reeks of a scam. Actually, it’s like two pyramid schemes rolled into one. Unify Travel Club is sketchy. Affiliate Nation is sketchy. Combine them together and, in my opinion, it becomes super sketch.

Google “Digital Altitude FTC” and “MOBE FTC.” Read about what happened to those companies. Which, I believe, are very similar to Affiliate Nation. Here’s a hint: it didn’t end well. And again, use common sense. Why, if they’ve got everything figured out, and they’ve already done all the hard, costly, confusing tech stuff, would they need you? I’ll tell you why. It’s for the same reason gurus sell $30,000 to $50,000 DFY Amazon and Walmart stores: because it may not work, and they don’t want to assume the risk. They’d rather charge you a bunch, up front, and then split future profits if it does pan out. Either way, they win. Gross.
