Deadbeat Super Affiliate Reloaded is the second version of Dan Brock’s affiliate marketing course and is said to teach people how to make money online with affiliate marketing. So is the Deadbeat Super Affiliate a scam or legit? Let’s take a look at this Reloaded Review.

Deadbeat Super Affiliate Reloaded offers three upsells right from the start. This review is focused only on what is called “Deadbeat Super Affiliate Reloaded” and not the other programs Dan sells.

Deadbeat Super Affiliate Reloaded Overview


There are a few upsell offers right after you sign up, you can skip them or upgrade to them after the fact. I didn’t purchase any of the upsells. Here’s a quick summary of what they are.

DeadBeat Traffic Blaster $47.

The Deadbeat Traffic Blaster Claims to:

  1. It blasts out your articles to the hottest Web 2.0 sites like Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress and more for instant free traffic…
  2. It “SPINS” all your articles into endless unique content and “drip feeds” it out for up to two full years without any effort on your part… and…
  3. It posts your content for you (on total autopilot) on Facebook and Twitter, without you lifting a finger.

The Deadbeat Millionaire $97

Instant Affiliate Site Builder! $97 – This program is 20 preset websites, that are said to bring in lots of traffic. However, you will need to re-write the articles to avoid duplicate copies on the Internet. I do not recommend re-writing/respinning articles.

Deadbeat University $67 a month.

Direct access to Dan for personal training and the deadbeat community.

Deadbeat Bonus

Deadbeat WordPress Theme: This is a perry cool WP Theme if you just need a lightweight, no-frills, single product/service affiliate site. I built a new site using this theme and you can see it in action here. (Top 73 FL Studio Sample Packs)

This video is from 2015 and my main concern is that a lot of the techniques that Dan uses are gray hat and may not even work anymore. The video is from a live Google hangout and you’ll want to skip ahead to about 10 mins in because Dan is trying to figure out the Google Hangout software.

Dan should have edited this video as there is another 10 min section where he keeps stumbling his words and needs to drink some water, which he eventually does.

There are some differences in here and is worth checking out some of the resources inside.

Final Thoughts

Overall there is some cool information in this course and for the price you can’t beat it, however, it does skip some very important SEO steps such as 8 Things That Successful Affiliate Marketing Websites Do.

There are three main upsells and he recommends 3rd party tools as upsells plus you will need to buy web hosting too.

Also, a lot of what Dan teaches involves hiring other people to do the work for you.

Is the Deadbeat Super Affiliate A Scam The Reloaded Review

While Dan presents an in-depth look at his internet marketing strategies and has an excellent lightweight WordPress theme that’s a great fit for a single product or service, he teaches gray hat SEO techniques that I would rather avoid and recommend you do as well.

Google is constantly changing its algorithms to defeat black and gray hat SEO methods. The reloaded course was made back in 2015 so it’s unclear if these gray hat SEO strategies will even work.

I didn’t buy any of the upsells but maybe will in the future. I’ll keep you posted.

Overall the Deadbeat Super Affiliate Reloaded seems like a gateway to get you to join The Deadbeat Affiliate Millionaire Club for $67 a month. WA is much cheaper with not upsells and you can start for free. link below.

Good Morning Greg,

After reading your review of Deadbeat Super Affiliate I must confess I did not understand it completely. I am quite new to the internet world and when I read things like: Spin your articles, endless unique content and drip feed for a full 2 years,I get stuck. To then also hear terms like no effort on my part? or not lifting a finger? I do not believe it. For people like me, I suppose there are more people who are not good with a lot of technical terms, something a bit more easy and straight forward would be nice. 

I will have a look at your suggestion of trying Wealthy Affiliate, I hope I am capable of doing that.

Regards, Taetske

Some of the names they come up with these products make you laugh. “Deadbeat Super Affiliate” LOL.

The thing I always find with these types of products in the “make money” niche especially, is that they hit you with multiple upsells right after you’ve paid the initial basic fee.

There’s nothing wrong with the sales funnel/upsell approach but these creators are trying to sell you a bunch of extra products before you even know what the main one is about.

Shouldn’t you gain access to the main Deadbeat Super Affiliate product first and then see HOW the upsells will benefit you? It makes more sense to me.

However, from all the lessons you’ve outlined, it seems that the program packs some value for building a successful online Biz through blogging and YouTube. I also love the fact that a WordPress theme is thrown into the mix too.

But like you, I’m not too crazy about the Gray Hat SEO stuff taught. After getting punished by Google and having my very first website DEINDEXED many moons ago for “manipulative” SEO strategies, it’s now “White Hat” all the way for me (which is how it SHOULD be for a level playing field).

Those blogger and affiliate marketers who cut corners will eventually get found out by Google. It’s just not worth the risk.

However, with that said, I think Deadbeat Super Affiliate is still worth the purchase because there are the NON-Gray Hat strategies we can still learn from.

Cheers, Neil

    Thanks for your input Neil.

It certainly seems to offer a wealth of information for the price but like you mention – I am slightly dubious about the effectiveness of some of the tactics that Dan offers. My main concern is the promise to distribute your articles to the most popular Web 2.0 sites. 

Now, most webmasters know that this sort of thing can be quickly picked up on  Google, and your articles end up near enough worthless (even as a backlink). Does his program alter each article slightly to avoid duplicates or are you stuck  with the same article spread liberally across each platform?

This function kinda sounds like a offer you’d find on Fiverr or something! 

    Greg · October 5, 2018 at 7:55 pm

    Thanks for your comments.

I have heard of deadbeat super affiliate in the past, and didn’t really look much into it. Reading your article made me realize I made the right choice. 

I mean quite honestly, you can’t do well in affiliate marketing if you are not putting in the work yourself. This new reloaded seems to give you a lot of autopilot ways to increase engagement and create content. 

Even the articles are given to you and you need to rewrite? How is this even teaching people how to do well in affiliate marketing?

 It sort of feels like those programs that give you tools to make your life easier, but having some background on affiliate marketing myself, ‘making your life easier’ is not the way to succeed in affiliate marketing.

    Greg · October 5, 2018 at 7:55 pm

    Thanks for your input.

Jurgen · October 5, 2018 at 9:43 am

Okay, this looks like so many other shady programs that focusses on getting rich without much effort. If you’re serious about starting a business you would not join a program with the word Deadbeat in it. Then words like Traffic Blaster and Millionaire… So I guess they target a certain kind of audience, like those who are regulars on warrior forum.

This is a big red flag for me and it’s no surprise to read that the program encourages stuff like spun articles. The author also doesn’t come over very professionally, plus the fact that this program is already 3 years old. It’s practically a dinosaur.

At the end, it doesn’t seem like a good investment, even if the price is relatively low…

Halyna George · September 17, 2018 at 2:17 pm

Hi Greg,

great review, you have no competition!

I have watched the video as well, looks very professional.
Nice training breaks down, simply and sufficiently described.
I like the conclusion, it’s very clear and at the same time informative about grey hat SEO.

Finally, I loved your promotion of WA in that video. sound very interesting and you are not forcing for anything that’s good!

    Greg · September 17, 2018 at 6:27 pm

    Thank you

ernst marc · September 10, 2018 at 2:45 pm

Thanks to this in-depth guide about Deadbeat Super Affiliate, it gave us a new informative way in deciding on the right investment. However, it’s still very important that one must be sure to take risks. Affiliate Marketing is not candy for all. It takes guts and perseverance in this field.

    Greg · September 14, 2018 at 12:36 am

    You’re welcome.

Reyhana · September 5, 2018 at 10:24 pm

If a lot of what Dan teaches is to get other people to do it for you, then, to be honest, I don’t really see the point of paying for this.

I am looking for a place to learn more about affiliate marketing, and maybe some techniques and steps that I can use in my own online affiliate marketing business to improve it.

At this point, I don’t have the money to hire anybody else.

As an intermediate affiliate marketer, do you think that this course is going to help me much? As you mentioned, he also teaches some gray hat techniques.

I’m wondering if I should just not skip this course.

    Greg · September 6, 2018 at 4:14 am

    As an intermediate affiliate marketer, I would skip the deadbeat system and go for WA A platform created for
    marketers of all levels.

    Whether you are just getting started, have some experience, or are an ultra-successful affiliate marketer, Wealthy Affiliate has something for you.

Sukumar Thingom · August 24, 2018 at 9:24 am

The Deadbeat Super Affiliate does not look like a scam and even with its upsells, it’s not too costly. However, I’m wary of these so-called grey/black hat SEO techniques. But like you said, there seems to be some cool stuff there and the lessons seem pretty solid. Personally, I feel that there’s no short-cut strategy that works in affiliate marketing. The content has to be there. But if the Deadbeat Super Affiliate does not drive home this point, I have doubts about its workability in the long run. Thanks for a detailed review.

    Greg · August 24, 2018 at 6:08 pm

    you’re welcome

lynnsamuelson · August 22, 2018 at 11:29 pm

I appreciate your honest assessment of Deadbeat Super Affiliate but am feeling pretty skeptical after reading this. The upsells were one thing but it’s the grey hat marketing that kind of closed the box for me. There are too many of these types of programs out there and better safe than sorry. Plus I really dislike when someone offers you something for free when you can get it easily for free without going through them. Thanks for the insight!

    Greg · August 23, 2018 at 5:12 am

    Thanks for your thoughts. 

Cinderella · August 21, 2018 at 3:17 pm

It is interesting to note that though he has so many Upsells there Are few of this courses that I really got interested in and maybe I will try it out one day, thank you for giving me another choice from Amazon.

I would definitely opt for Wealthy Affiliate as you have recommended that there Are no Upsells and you can start without paying anything.

I hope to try both and see which one works best for me. Thanks.

Christopher · August 20, 2018 at 1:50 am

Hi Greg:

Deadbeat Super Affiliate sounds like it might be a workable program. However, the part I don’t understand is how blasting articles out the platforms like Tumblr is beneficial unless you have affiliate links within those articles. Is that how this works?

The training sounds pretty thorough but not as thorough as WA. Also, I don’t see a keyword research part to the training. To me the keyword research tool, Jaxxy, is priceless!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

    Greg · August 20, 2018 at 2:36 am

    Blasting articles out to platforms like Tumblr are to help get Back links to your site. Back links are good but using black hat and gray hat techniques as such is not.
