To everyone else that entered, thanks so much for getting on board! We truly appreciate every single one of you. Remember that you can still get AffiloBlueprint here.
Happy birthday to us! In today's blog post we are taking a lighthearted look back while we celebrate seven years of Affilorama. As one of the younger Affilorama staff members, I hadn't even started high school when Mark decided it would be a great idea to share his affiliate marketing secrets with the world. Nonetheless, I've donned my 'police detective' cap, and have snooped around to bring you the concise (and exciting) history of Affilorama.
To celebrate our seventh birthday the shout is on us - read down to the bottom of the page to learn how you can win one of seven copies of our flagship AffiloBlueprint program! (I reckon that's a whole lot better than getting a free slice of birthday cake)
Like a fine wine, or cheese if that's more what you're into, we think that Affilorama has only got better with age. But let's take a brief step back to the early days and have a look at how the site has evolved. Unfortunately, I was unable to find any images of Affilorama from 2005, so let's start a little later.
Affilorama in 2006:
Here's a little screenshot of the Affilorama homepage from 2006:
As you can see, Affilorama has always been at the cutting edge of website design! Affilorama back in 2006 was extremely different to the site you see now. You can see in the screenshot above that one of the biggest parts of Affilorama was its affiliate program directory. If you were after an affiliate program to promote, then you could scoot on over and be greeted by Mark (as you can see at the top of the page) and then find something great to sell.
That being said, Affilorama also offered a paid training course back in 2006. In fact, you had to pay to become an Affilorama member - that big join now button didn't give you free access like it does today.
So there we have the earliest version of Affilorama, so how has it evolved?
Affilorama in 2007:
I won't show you the homepage again, because nothing much had changed really over that year (besides more quality affiliate marketing training and advice being added to the site on a regular basis)
Even back then, Affilorama offered some of the best affiliate marketing training and resources at the best possible price (how about that for some blatant self promotion!)
Affilorama in 2008 (aka Affilorama goes free!):
If you were after Affilorama access in early 2008, you would have been greeted with the following home page:
A bit of a bummer if you were desperately after an Affilorama membership. Nonetheless, you could sign up to the launch notification list and get VIP access when Affilorama was re-launched.
It's time to get excited, because Affilorama would soon be free for everyone to join!
Affilorama goes free (end of 2008)
As promised, after a brief hiatus Affilorama was back and better than ever before. This time you could get your hands on an exciting free membership, just by handing over your name and email address:
Nick, our tech-master general, has informed me that Affilorama was rewritten into CakePHP in 2008.
This redesign also saw the release of Affilorama Premium, which to this day offers some of the best affiliate marketing training and tools in the world. If you haven't already, you should check out Affilorama Premium here.
AffiloBlueprint 2.0 - 2009
2009 saw the birth of our flagship AffiloBlueprint course (AffiloBlueprint 1.0 was basically a private members' masterclass, so it's a little bit difficult to show that off here). For the uninitiated, AffiloBlueprint is a time-tested and proven method that Mark often uses for building profitable affiliate sites; at the bottom of this post you're gonna find out how you can win one of seven copies of the latest AffiloBlueprint 3.0 course.
Affilorama 2010 onwards
As you can see, there has been massive change and improvement in every Affilorama product and service since 2005. Of course, one thread of continuity has always run through everything we do here at Affilorama - everything is about delivering the best affiliate marketing training and advice to our valued customers and visitors.
The next major redesign of Affilorama came in the middle of 2011:
I hope you've enjoyed seeing the evolution of Affilorama over the past seven years to the site it is today. As one of our valued members, you're just as much a part of this story as any of the staff! So here's to us, and here's to you on Affilorama's seventh birthday.
