How I Sold $1M of My Affiliate Course Without Trying

I sold over 1 million dollars in 106 days with my $97 course. Here’s the story of how I did it!  

I will preface this by saying that I never wanted to teach how to start a business or make money online. I always thought it was a super shady industry.  Then, I changed my mind.

I was living in a van, happily and peacefully driving around the country making money online as an affiliate marketer. When TikTok came out, I shared my story. People could not factor why someone who makes over 7 figures a year lived in a van. By accident, I made a lifestyle that constantly kept going viral. I transparently showed how much I made and where I lived and eventually got super popular. 

Followers wanted to learn how they could do the same. Initially, this scared me. I didn’t want to be like the other internet gurus who flash their money online. I didn't have a course that shared my honest tactics. I was stuck. Unfortunately, many of them ended up resorting to a different course causing their first impression of affiliate marketing to be pretty fishy. 

I hated that this was happening to my followers! I wanted them to succeed! I hated that they were being led down the wrong path and inevitably failing because of other preexisting courses. I was thrilled that people were inspired for me but was furious that other people’s crappy courses were being tied to my name! People even dueted my videos saying “If you want to be like Adrian, buy this course” that I was in no way, shape, or form affiliated with. 

I was tired of my honest content being used to promote a company I didn't believe in! So, I called up my good friend Dom Bavaro and asked for help launching my own course! He warned me that it was a very audacious move to challenge the big dog of online courses. That being said, I had enough of other companies portraying affiliate marketing as a pyramid scheme or MLM. I was sick of it!

Last summer, I posted a video calling out one company in particular, Legendary Marketer. I explained how their tactics are a scam and explain why you shouldn't get involved with them. Naturally, people got angry at me for threatening the livelihood of their businesses. They knew that I had a large following and that me exposing them was going to jeopardize their futures. 

Let me tell you… people got pissed! They were pissed that I was calling them out. They were pissed that I was going to make a better course that would steal their clients. They were pissed that I was only letting 100 people promote my course. They were pissed that in order to be considered for my affiliate program, they had to prove they actually knew how to make money online without selling courses! 

They tried to discredit me in any way possible all because I’m a true affiliate marketer! I got hate video after hate video after hate video. I was constantly made fun of me for living in a van. Obviously, none of their tactics works in taking me down. 

Creating the Brambila Method

The one thing that was unique about my program is that I allowed my 100 affiliates to be beta testers. They all got free access to my course in return for honest feedback on whether or not my course would actually help people make money online solely from the information in the lessons. I made changes, added videos, clarified sections, and launched. 

The drama that the launch created was crazy. I got even more hate comments. My course was proving to be a big competitor and Legendary Marketer did not like that. 

In the first 2 weeks, we did $425,000 in sales. Of course, my affiliates got 35% in commission for every sale they brought in. A huge shoutout gets to Dom and all 100 affiliates that helped make this course a success. 

Secrets to Success

1. Put the Customer First

It takes an extreme amount of trust for a customer to take out their wallet and give you their money. When I launched, I wanted to make sure that the customer was happy, was learning information, and was please with their purchase. The customer always comes first.

2. Help Your Affiliates

If your affiliates are successful, you are successful. Provide them with the tools and resources they need to make the most of their time. It will pay off in the end. 

Again, I wouldn't have been able to do it without my awesome team and affiliates. If you would like to join us, click the link here. And if you have personally bought the Brambila Method, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. It means to the world!

Peace and God bless.
