Is Deadbeat Super Affiliate SCAM?

Product Name: Deadbeat Super Affiliate


Cost: $17 for the product. Upsells: The Deadbeat Traffic Blaster ($23), Instant Affiliate Site Builder ($97), Deadbeat University ($67 per month) and Deadbeat Millionaire ($47)

Overall Score: 4/10



Is Deadbeat Super Affiliate SCAM? Here’s my honest review. Deadbeat Super Affiliate, an internet marketing training program, was launched in 2010 by founder Dan Brocks. Five years later, however; a revised program of the original product was re-launched as Deadbeat Super Affiliate Reloaded.

Given that the program offers training for internet marketers that are either amateurs or professionals, it’s very popular. However, in terms of the content provided, the suitable target audience is beginners.

Yet, Deadbeat Super Affiliate Reloaded is mostly popular for all the benefits it offers to its trainees. From learning about WordPress Optimization to learning how to endorse products on Amazon, the program is packed with useful information. Notably, it contains at least 23 videos that are centered on the fundamentals of affiliate marketing.

According to Dan Brock, his training course will allow online marketers to earn an insurmountable amount of money.

Just like anything else, this program has its share of advantages and disadvantages.


  • Free Deadbeat WordPress theme
  • Teaches how to build affiliate websites
  • Access to the Amazon Associate program
  • Access to a host of Affiliate links to use on your website
  • Optimal training on video creation
  • Includes a member forum: This helps provide personal support to the members whenever they are stuck and need some help.
  • The overall training course is very detailed and structured



  • The upsells are not only a turn-off but are misleading
  • Old and ineffective techniques: The training program teaches its members about building backlinks that are no longer as effective. This can have you penalized by Google.
  • The scarcity of information: The information provided on keyword research and SEO optimization is lacking.
  • Questionable product recommendations
  • I believe some of the sales pitch videos are super misleading! (see below) –  C’mon, it’s not realistic to think that everyone will make $20K in 4 months. If it sounds too good to be true…you know the saying

Who Is It For?

This product is specifically suitable for beginners, and not professionals. The course helps equip one with the necessary skills and knowledge to navigate the online world adequately. The cost is also suitable for beginners who may not be willing to invest a lot of money in their online endeavors.

Considering the primary focus of the program, it is beneficial for those willing to acquire the necessary skills on affiliate marketing. Notably, it is not a way to make money quickly. Despite its claims, you will need to put in the effort to start earning a good amount of money.



The support provided by Dan Broker himself, as well as his team, is pretty good – I have to admit. You get access to first hand training, and thanks to its online live member forum, they are able to provide help to its members whenever they get stuck. The forum is constantly active; hence, members are able to receive help immediately.

The training material includes a number of videos, covering how to sign up for affiliate programs, choosing a niche and how to set up a website.

The feedback I’ve heard from members is that they are happy with the Support, which is great.


As previously mentioned, the Deadbeat Super Affiliate goes for $17. It does come with other upsells that go for different prices. They include:

  • The Deadbeat Traffic Blaster goes for $23
  • Instant Affiliate Site Builder- $97
  • Deadbeat University- $67 per month
  • Deadbeat Millionaire- $47


Summary – Is Deadbeat Super Affiliate a Scam?

Deadbeat Super Affiliate is not a scam. Notably, it offers exactly what you pay for through high- quality step by step videos. It can benefit beginners that wish to learn about the basics of the online world, as well as Affiliate marketing.

Personally, I don’t buy into very hyped up salesy-sales pitches. I’ve had a career in Sales, and I’d much prefer to speak with, and learn from, someone who’s more consultative and honest in their approach. My #1 recommendation for the best affiliate marketing education program is Wealthy Affiliate. I’ve learnt everything I know about making money online from them – If you care to check it out, here’s my review.

As always, I’m keen to hear your feedback and questions.

Have a super day!

  1. Hello Karina,

    Enjoyed reading your article it was very thorough and captures the essence of what the Deadbeat Super Affiliate offer is all about.

    Comparing it to what is available through Wealthy Affiliate show the valve that is offered through both options.

    It is refreshing to read such positive reviews that give people an honest look at programs they have not seen before.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Karina, thanks so much for this detailed analysis of Deadbeat Super Affiliate.

    Clearly, what they are really wanting to sell is the Deadbeat University. It only takes a few people to stay in a $67 a month recurring program for a few months for the income to really add up.

    Incidentally, is it just me? The name really puts me off. “Deadbeat” has such really negative connotations. They undoubtedly thought it was clever, but it just doesn’t work for me.

    From your description, DSA does sound like a collection of information that anyone who’s been around for a while already knows – WordPress, Amazon, affiliate marketing etc.

    And it’s disturbing that some of the information appears to be out of date. You certainly have to be careful these days with Google backlinks.

    I totally agree with your comments about Wealthy Affiliate. A great program full of topical information, with a supportive member group.

    1. Hi Phil, 

      Happy New Year! Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment, really appreciate it. and I totally agree with you on the name; just sounds unprofessional and tacky. But each to their own right 🙂

      Have a super day!


  3. Deadbeat Super Affiliate may not be a scam but I doubt if this is the program that aspiring affiliate marketers want to sign up with. Before getting on board any program, it’s important we know enough about it. This will save us from disappointments as a result of unmet expectations.

    In the pros of this product, you mentioned that a member has access to the Amazon Associate Program, does this mean that when you join Deadbeat super Affiliate you are guaranteed to be accepted as an Amazon Affiliate? And why won’t they keep their training and lessons up to date so that no matter what upgrades will take place in the world of internet marketing, members won’t be left hanging in the dark. 

    1. Hi Alice, 

      Thanks for your feedback and questions, really appreciate it. From what I understand, there is no guarantees on being accepted to the Amazon Associate program – they simply teach you how to register for it. As we know, Amazon will kick you out if you haven’t made a sale within a certain timeframe, that’s no different for a Deadbeat Super affiliate. I would certainly compare to other (and better) affiliate programs before handing over my money to this mob. 

      Happy New Year!


  4. I think $20k in 4 months is definitely a reasonable and achievable income level. It does break out to $5k per month which I have seen many successful affiliates make. Granted, I don’t think it is possible when you first start out from scratch. 

    I am curious to know if people use the site builder or if they just buy a regular domain name and hosting package elsewhere? It sounds a lot cheaper to do so.

    1. Hi Jessie, 

      I agree, $5K a month is definitely realistic income levels in affiliate marketing, but I doubt very much you can achieve it in your first 4 months….There needs to be time to build up your site, get some trust and content on your site to be ranked. I don’t know the answer to your question, certainly would be interesting to know

      Happy New Year!


  5. Great post!  I honestly had never heard of the Deadbeat Super Affiliate program.  It’s interesting that this program goes off of videos with techniques that aren’t all that relative to today’s internet marketing world.  I guess since it’s so inexpensive, you would actually get just what you pay for.  Thank you for an informative post, but also, for naming a highly respected alternative!



  6. Great review! Like you said, this seems like more of a program for intermediate or advanced internet marketers. I know if I stumbled into Deadbeat Super affiliate I would be super confused, especially since you said they offer very little content. The red flag for me was when the guy said you could be making 20k in 4 months, as it is very unlikely and pretty misleading to advertise that. Thanks for the review! You may have just saved me a couple bucks further down the road!!

  7. Wow I didn’t know about it using marketing techniques that are outdated and not as effective.And yea we do know the saying of it being to good to be true ha

    I did look at what it offers for beginners on this page but I don’t think its worth it in the long run.I’ll be keeping an eye out for something more realistic.
    As well as on that site you recommended as I don’t think I have the time currently.

    Thanks for your review, I’m sure u saved a lot of people from falling for this “not entirely a scam” product/program. 😀

    1. Hi Joe, 

      Thanks for your comments 🙂 And while you’re looking for something realistic – I cannot recommend Wealthy Affiliate enough – it’s free, has the support and is for everyone 🙂

      Happy New Year!


  8. Its great to see these reviews.  Its great to see that people have some education out there for respect to the not so great opportunities on the internet.

    For those of us who have been around for a while we can spot these a mile away.  However for the newbies they are usually desperate to make some quick money and we just know quick money doesnt help.

    Once again this was a great review and I look forward to reading more from you.
