Internet marketers in all areas of business often go looking for an online coach who can either help them get started on the right foot, or coach them to the next level in sales and commissions.

Your goal is ultimately to earn more money, but you want to choose an affiliate coach that delivers information in a way you enjoy, and has the ethics intact that you can respect and implement.

There are tons of affiliate marketing courses and tools that help you learn the fundamentals about promoting tangible and digital products online in return for a commission.

But an affiliate marketing coach is a person who delivers specific training to help you customize your mission based on your own talents and training. There shouldn’t be a cookie cutter approach because no two affiliates are the same.

Sometimes you’ll see marketers selling a coaching program for affiliate marketing. This is nothing more than an affiliate marketing course – they just threw the word “coaching” in there to make it sound more personalized.

You want to carefully evaluate what kind of interaction you’ll have with the coach himself – will he analyze your sites or look at your previous efforts to show you where you’ve gone wrong?

How will you be interacting? Some coaching have cookie cutter homework they want you to do, which you then report back to them. This might be the style you appreciate. Or, you might want something more customized.

Some coaching programs have group systems where they take on a handful of marketers at once and coach them as a group. This is better than a hands-off course, but it’s still not 100% customized to your needs.

A top tier affiliate marketing coach will give one-on-one training, not in a group setting, so that you get the attention you deserve. They will want to talk to you about your goals, see what’s holding you back, and then help you discover a solution.

The best affiliate marketing coach can get on Skype with you like it’s a face-to-face meeting, while reviewing your site and techniques in real time. This makes it easier for you to have a back and forth Q&A so that you leave the coaching session with plenty of “Aha moments.”

Before you sign up and pay extreme amounts of money, don’t just go by screenshots and proof of income statements. Ask for names of other people they’ve coached and find out what their experience was.
