I love when a program creates real value to its customers. In an environment where a lot of program creators want to collect your money for the trash they put out, it is refreshing to see a high-quality product.
Indeed, Amazon has really made a lot of people rich via their popular affiliate program, but as you rightly said, it also comes with a lot of limitations. I generally love and agree with the idea of having different monetization strategies instead of focusing only on Amazon, in case something goes wrong.

I would expect no less from a program created by Stefan Pylarinos. The quality of training you get even before you have to pay a dime beats what most programs will charge you for. The material covered was clear, concise, honest and straightforward.
