Partner With Anthony Review: Affiliate Marketing Done Wrong?

Partner With Anthony Review

Hi and welcome to my honest Partner With Anthony review where I'm going to give you a quick overview of Anthony Morrison's latest affiliate marketing training program to help you decide whether or not this is right for you.

If you're like me then you've been getting a lot of emails from Anthony lately talking about how, for just $7 a month, he wants to partner with you to give you a low-cost way to start your first online business in 2021.

Click his email link and you're taken to the Partner With Anthony sales page. What's odd though is, even though it's made to look like Anthony's live streaming, hit refresh and the video reloads.

Heck, you can even pause and play the video whenever you want…

So what's really going on here?

Is Anthony simply trying to pull one over on you or is this a legit online opportunity you should sign up to without giving it a second thought?

Here's what I found out:

Partner With Anthony Review At A Glance

About: Anthony Morrison's latest video course promising to show you how to become a successful affiliate marketer.

Price: $7 plus $169.94/month and $69.95/year to apply the training.

Pros: There aren't any.

Cons: No refunds, a ton of complaints and I don't trust Anthony's shady history.

Verdict: One of the worst affiliate marketing courses we've seen and a borderline scam.

Who Exactly Is Anthony Morrison?

Anthony Morrison is a well-known online entrepreneur with over 10 years of experience in affiliate marketing.

He's written books and created a whole range of courses aimed at teaching people how to create a passive income online but, whether or not these courses have actually helped people achieve real financial freedom is the real question.

Read reviews and complaints from people who have enrolled in his previous courses and it's fair to say Anthony has a less than glowing track record…

When I reviewed Anthony's Inner Inbox Circle System I exposed the misleading and downright manipulative sales tactics he uses to squeeze as much cash out of people as possible.

His ‘Success With Anthony' course got shut down by ClickBank which is a real achievement when 90% of Clickbank's make money online programs are complete rubbish.

Here's the deal:

While there's no doubt Anthony is a skilled marketer and slick salesman, I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him and neither should you.

What Is Partner With Anthony?

Partner With Anthony is a 13 video session training course aimed at teaching you how to make money as an affiliate marketer, but despite the long sales spiel about this being a ‘true partnership opportunity' to work with Anthony, that's not what you're getting.

You'll be able to access Anthony's training videos and eBooks but you can't contact Anthony directly. If you have any questions you'll have to raise a support ticket and wait for an answer from his support team.

Yes, you'll be able to use his done-for-you sales funnels but there's a catch:

You'll first have to go through the sales funnel yourself.

The low $7 price is just the entrance fee you pay to go through his sales funnel and after that, you'll be expected to buy into a whole plethora of Anthony Morrison programs.

A little self-serving don't you think?

This should be setting off alarm bells. When the sole aim of a training program is to teach you how to promote the same training program it's never a good sign.

A Sneak Peek Inside The Training Area

Log into the PWA members area and you'll find links to the 13 video sessions and downloadable PDF files.

Anthony Morrison's lessons walk you through the tools and membership sites you're going to need to sign up for to be able to promote his courses.

He'll walk you through how to get your landing pages set up and your first email campaign up and running.

There is a time delay for each lesson though so you're going to have to wait 24 hours after completing the previous lesson before you can move on to the next. He says this is so you don't skip through without ‘fully absorbing' all the information.

partner with anthony members training area

Once inside the member's area, you're on your own as support here is severely lacking. I was surprised to see there's no question and answers area, no members forum and no way to contact Anthony directly, despite the name of the program.

This means if you get stuck or are unsure at any point, your only course of action is raising a support ticket with Anthony's outsourced support team. While they can help you with technical questions surrounding your account set up, these people have very little knowledge or experience with affiliate marketing.

Can You Make Money With Partner With Anthony?

Become an affiliate marketer, take massive action and you can build a very lucrative income stream for yourself. I've run successful internet businesses for 5 years now and I'm a huge believer in people achieving financial freedom online.

Unfortunately, though, this seemingly low-priced course comes with a lot of unexpected costs further down the line that we were not made aware of in the promo video (we'll go through some of these in a second).

In short, yes you can make money with this course but keep in mind that you'll have to spend money to make money and the only way to do that is by getting others to sign up to the Partner With Anthony program itself.

Counting The Real Cost

Partner With Anthony has two payment options; you can either pay a one-time fee of $97 or pay $7 per month for life.

partner with anthony membership costs and pricing

But this is just the beginning…

By far the biggest issue I have with this program is the sheer number of high-priced upsells and monthly subscriptions you're forced to buy if you want to implement the training and get any results.

Let's go through them one by one:

Upsell 1: ClickFunnels – $99-$297/month

With a 14 day free trial, ClickFunnels.com give you the software to create sales funnels.

Upsell 2: BuildRedirects – $19.99-$99.99/month

BuildRedirects.com give you clicks and conversion tracking software.

Upsell 3: Digital Marketing Mastermind – $69.95/year

Digital Marketing Mastermind is Anthony Morrison's very own membership site with more training videos and a private Facebook group.

Upsell 4: M Insider Newsletter – $9.95/month

Yet another Anthony Morrison program, the M Insider Newsletter is a monthly newsletter about optimising your campaigns and earning ‘even more money'.

Upsell 5: Get Response – $15-$1,199/month

GetResponse.com gives you email autoresponders and landing pages.

Upsell 6: AWeber – $19-$149/month

Sign up with Aweber.com and you'll be able to start collecting email subscribers.

You're going to need to sign up to all of these monthly subscriptions if you want to implement the training and promote Partner With Anthony.

Even if you go for the lowest priced options in each case, the best-case scenario is that you're going to need to shell out a whopping $169.94 per month plus $69.95 per year!

That's a lot for what you thought was a $7 a month program!

Making money online isn't complicated…

This video will show you exactly how to get started. Tap to watch now.

What Partner With Anthony Members Say

Read other members' Partner With Anthony reviews online and you'll see the same issues coming up again and again.

What I find most alarming (and you should too!) is the sheer number of complaints from people who signed up and ended up having money taken out of their account without authorisation.

See the complaint below from a member who had money taken out of their account for months without realising it, only to be told they wouldn't be getting a refund:

1. Unexpected Charges, Zero Chance Of A Refund

Hiding additional fees and charges in the fine print of the terms and conditions might make it legal, but this is still highly unethical in my view.

2. Website Glitches With Zero Support

From time to time you may experience the occasional technical glitch with any training website you join, but if this happens you definitely deserve more than an automated message at the other end of the line:

Is Partner With Anthony A Scam?

Partner With Anthony is technically not a scam because there is some training, but do I recommend it?

There's undoubtedly some good information to glean from Anthony's years of experience in online business, but there are just far too many red flags for me to be able to give this program a green thumbs-up, including:

  • Anthony misleads people into thinking they're going to be working with him.
  • People sign up to a $7/month program and end up paying $100's in unexpected costs.
  • There's a total lack of support for members.
  • Partner With Anthony is about making money promoting Partner With Anthony.
  • There's a ton of negative reviews and complaints from members fighting for refunds (and not getting them).
  • Anthony Morrison has a shady reputation with many calling him a scammer.

A Better Partner With Anthony Alternative

If you're starting out on your online journey, you deserve better than programs like Partner With Anthony that fail to deliver.

That's why I recommend Invincible Marketer; an online training platform and community that have been turning aspiring entrepreneurs like you into successful full-time affiliate marketers since 2005.

You can read my full review of Invincible Marketer right here.

As an Invincible Marketer member, you'll have everything you need to create and grow a thriving and successful online business at your fingertips and get real support in real-time.

Plus they don’t ask you for $169 per month like Partner With Anthony does.

  2. It’s pretty sad that all WA people are taught to tear others down to sell WA. I can find site after site doing the same thing.

    Why can’t you focus on your own merits instead of lying about other people’s programs while you do the same thing?

    It’s obvious you’ve never been a member of Anthony’s program, yet you tell lies about how it works anyway… how do you sleep at night?

    You do the same thing you accuse him of doing… shame.

    • Hi Simon,

      Wealthy Affiliate NEVER teaches anyone to write fake reviews or tear other programs for the sake of it. It would be better for me financially to say Anthony’s programs are all brilliant but then my reputation as an honest reveiwer would be on the line.

      If every Partner With Anthony review out there is negative, maybe that should tell you something…?

      I sleep soundly at night after reading comments and emails from people who nearly fell for some scummy internet scam or other but didn’t, thus saving them wasted time, money and frustration. Not to mention the dozens of success stories I read from Wealthy Affiliate members every single day.

      • Hi Simon,

        I guess PWA is really too good to be true; I am surprised Anik Singal partnered with him to sell his program.

        • I know Annie, me too. Watch Anthony and you’ll see him come out with his ‘latest, legit (for real this time) money-making course’ every few weeks or so.

          Wealthy Affiliate, on the other hand, have been showing aspiring entrepreneurs how to start thriving income-generating online businesses since 2005 and they’re still going strong. I think that says a lot in an industry obsessed with ‘churn and burn’ product launches.

  3. Well, that was interesting. I was pretty hooked until the obviously fake “Live stream”. Like anyone but the biggest loser in the world is going to sit and repeat that pitch endlessly to the one random guy who clicks through his youtube advert that minute! I mean, how desperate would you need to be for that $7?
    Thanks for the confirmation – I’m writing this in August, and it was still “just” $7, and “about to go up!”

    Reply
    • Haha – no surprise there and it’ll be $7 until the end of time! 🙂

      As I say, it’s just the starting price to get into his sales funnel and promote his many higher ticket products to you.

      Thanks for taking the time to share your experience.

  4. I almost registered today but realized the red LIVE icon was fake. With all due diligence, can Anthony convince any one with cheques made in 2006 while we are already past mid 2020? At least earnings in the past two or three years would do.

    • I’m glad you saw the light Soko. As I say, if he’s willing to use fake tactics like this to get you to sign up, then maybe this is not the best guy to learn from.

      If you’re ready for real training without the hype and deception then definitely check out my #1 recommendation here.

      They have a free Starter membership you can try out and if you like what you see it’s only $49 a month to go Premium. I joined as a very cautious Starter member in 2014 and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

  5. I watched the PWA ad very closely. Other than showing massive checks to hook you in, he does not explain the details.

    The HUGE Red Flags for me were first, it is not live like he indicates. He kept saying how affordable the $7 a month would be & going to end soon & would jack up the price to $197 a month. Then said it over & over again if you do not sign up before his video is over he is taking it down immediately……pressure buying does not work on me, it has the opposite effect.

    Then at the end, he up-sells to a one time fee of $97…..I knew that was only the beginning. Does not disclose any other fees. The other thing that was really disgusting to me was using his parents with emotional manipulation for his own financial gain.

  6. Hi Simon,
    Just a quick question: you said the course has 13 videos. What’s the total course length? (An hour, two, five?)
    Isn’t that worth $7 dollars on its own?

    You can always cancel the $7 per month subscription fee once you’ve worked through the content. Right?

    Thanks! (Keep up the good work!)

  7. I am trying, without much success, to stop payments to your program, but you make it difficult. And here’s why I want to leave:

    Either its 7 bucks a month or it isn’t. I sell books. $2.99 is the first in the series. When they purchase that first book they are offered the other three at a discount. But to buy that first book isn’t dependant on them buying the next books.

    You come across as sincere, you have a childish drawing of your father on the wall. But you are lying. It isn’t 7 bucks a month.

    Please take me off your list. My bank won’t cancel the payments because I stupidly gave you my card number before I realized there was more to pay before I was signed up.

    Now my worry is no one reads these posts.

    My worry is you seem to be uncontactable unless I spend more money but my least concern is the 7 bucks you took from me. I am happy to report my card stolen so you get not another cent from me.

    Don’t come across as sincere when you are hiding the true cost. Just tell us the cost and let us decide our fate. Don’t throw out the bait and laugh maniacally as you hook and land us.

    Just cancel my card. Please.

    • Hi there Andrew, you are absolutely right about the false advertising and endless upsells. As I say, people have ended up hundreds or even thousands of dollars worse off by falling for Anthony Morrison’s deceptive sales tactics.

      I would definitely call my bank and cancel my card if I were you and as fast as you can. You just can’t trust these guys to have any kind of moral compass and it’s the only way to stop more of your money being taken.

      I’m sorry you’ve had to go through this and I hope your story serves as a sober warning to others to keep away!

  8. I am looking for a program priced below $10 monthly but can give me the right guidance towards good results…Wealthy Affiliates is too expensive for me.

    Reply
    • Hi Tom, I totally get where you’re coming from (I’ve been there!) but I think you’re going to struggle to find any legit training/hosting/tools platform for less than $10 a month.

      Here’s the quick price breakdown of what it will realistically cost to run a profitable and successful business with Wealthy Affiliate:

      Monthly membership fee: $49/month
      Website domain: $13.99/year
      Jaaxy keyword tool (optional) $19/month

      The yearly membership option works out at $359/year or just $29/month and they haven’t increased their prices since 2005. Trust me when I say there’s no other business on earth you can run on just $1 per day!

      If money really is that tight right now then your best bet is to stick with the free Starter membership, take advantage of the 2 free websites they give you and get the most out of the training lessons and then reinvest your profits back into the full Premium membership as soon as you can.

      That’s what I would do if I were you. Do let me know how you get on.

  9. With all due respect, Simon I think your approach of “throwing rocks” to your competitors, even that is a “valid marketing strategy” is revealing your true colors, for what is worth, I will suggest to use a less obvious strategy of trying to discredits your competitors and come with a valuable offer (not promises or self ratings) to compete with them.

    Here is a fact: Anthony Morrison has been in business for more than 10 years with a track record that support his achievements, where are yours?

    I’ve been following you since 2016, your content at that time really had the intention to help but lately you have change with your “honest reviews” – disappointing!

    I really hope you get back to the basis!

    Reply
    • Hey Luis, first of all, thanks for getting in touch and it’s great to hear from you 🙂

      When I started TheMakeMoneyOnlineBlog in March of 2016 I had no idea where it would lead. Since then we’ve published 400+ high-quality articles, reviews and how-to guides, received 1,000’s of comments and I’ve personally mentored 100’s of aspiring online entrepreneurs through the process of taking a seed of a business idea and turning it into earning a full-time passive income.

      That’s people escaping the rat race, getting control of their lives, becoming their own boss and finding financial freedom – nothing in the world gives me a greater buzz than this!

      The last 3 years have been amazing, but I can tell you the best is yet to come! We’ve got some great things in the pipeline, some things I think you’re really going to like.

      If you haven’t yet, be sure to subscribe the mailing list so you get all the latest updates.

      I have to disagree with most of the things you said here, for example, when you said, “Anthony Morrison has been in business for 10 years with a track record…”

      What kind of track record is that exactly?

      I’ve heard from at least a dozen people who bought one of his $7 training courses thinking they were getting a full and comprehensive system to follow, only to be hit with upsell after upsell inside the members’ area until they were $1,497 out of pocket.

      Do you think this is an ethical and honest approach? Or do you just think, well, that’s the make money online niche for you, there’s nothing we can do to change it?

      Saying that, I DO think you have your finger on a very important point and I thank you for making it, which is two-fold:

      Firstly, you should always be sceptical, especially in the ‘make money online’ space! As I always say: make sure you do due diligence before ever paying out for any product or course because unfortunately most of them are low-quality rubbish.

      Secondly, when you’re checking out reviews what is the motivation of the reviewer? I would make a lot more money giving every product I came across a glowing review but I made a decision back in 2016 to always give my full and honest opinions, always put my amazing readers first and to never become a sell out.

      I am naturally a very positive and optimistic person so I actually don’t enjoy spending hours digging into how scams work – it’s a dark and murky world and yes, it’s all very negative…

      I would much rather talk about things like the huge opportunity the online world gives us to not only replace our full-time incomes but to dream bigger than ever to create the kind of life we want for ourselves.

      Unfortunately, though, most people will never get that far because of the sheer number of scams and misinformation there is out there.

      So I see my role here (at least in part) is to remove as many of the stumblings blocks that get in the way of people’s success as I can. And inevitably, this will involve exposing some of the more prevalent scams currently making the rounds.

      I hope this helps in explaining at least a little bit about why I do what I do and I thank you again for reaching out!

      • I’ve seen so many affiliates of Wealth Affiliates doing this strategy. They will make a review of an MLM or Affiliate Marketing program (to use the keywords), discredit it and then recommend wealthy affiliate… I have met Anthony Morrisson myself in an event with 5,000 entrepreneurs who flew in from around the world. It was an event where, Anthony received an Award for making a million dollars as an Affiliate. I have never seen the founder of Wealthy Affiliate anywhere.

        • Hi Ann, thanks for your comment and I appreciate your viewpoint. Just last month I met Wealthy Affiliate co-founders Kyle and Carson in Las Vegas at the Super Affiliate conference and their passion to genuinely help people really shone through. I would look at Wealthy Affiliate’s track record in the last 15 years, look at the many members’ success stories.

          My issue with Anthony is not whether he’s making money or not, because clearly, he is. My issue is how he does it.

          • What I don’t understand is, why would you try to promote WA in a review of another product? This is a common tactic used by WA affiliates. Grab those gullible in the moneymaking niche, diss on the other product and promote WA like it’s God sent!

            • Hey Ron, I appreciate you asking this question.

              Offering an alternative is perfectly reasonable and even helpful when done right. You’ll often see reviews of headphones for example with a list of alternatives and I don’t see anything wrong with that. I think the key for reviewers is to always put readers first, something I always strive to do.

              I can see there are some people (mostly beginners) who diss products for the sake of it without doing research and presenting the facts and I wholeheartedly agree that this isn’t a good long-term strategy.

              Wealthy Affiliate sure isn’t perfect, but it’s low cost, has a good community and the training works. At the end of the day isn’t that what you want from a training program?

              What gets my back up with Anthony’s products is the endless cycle of upsells. He just takes advantage of people but I think I made my feelings about him clear in the review.

              Wealthy Affiliate isn’t an MLM but it does have an affiliate program.

              If you’re looking for a training course that’ll teach you affiliate marketing but are not so keen on Wealthy Affiliate, Project 24 is another excellent option. Here’s my Project 24 review.

              Again, I appreciate you asking the question and getting in touch. Let me know if I can help you with anything at all. You’ll always get a straight answer from me.

  10. If I join wealthy affiliates, would I not need clickfunnels or an alternative say builderall or buying my own hosting and a WordPress theme to create my blog or landing pages. Will I not need an autoresponder like getresponse or aweber. Will I not need a tracking software. Are all this provided by wealthy affiliate at the cost of the training because you seem to imply that all I need to do to start making money online is just my entrance fee to wealthy affiliates.

    Reply
    • Hey Tolu, yes, as a Wealthy Affiliate Premium member ($49 per month if paid monthly) you get full access to SiteRubix, their fully integrated WordPress website creator with 1,000’s of free WordPress themes to choose from. No, you don’t need to pay $97 for the ClickFunnels membership or any other unnecessary landing page software.

      If you want to get into email marketing then sure, you can sign up to AWeber or GetResponse if you want to but MailChimp is free up to 2,000 subscribers.

      So in a nutshell: yes you really can build a full-time income online with just the Wealthy Affiliate membership alone. I know I did.

      Plus if you choose the yearly option of $495 you effectively get 2 months free vs. paying $49 per month.

  11. I heard a lot about Anthony Morrison before ever coming across any of his products. From the outside, he seems like a pretty honest guy who is trying to help people make money online. It saddened me when I actually started looking at his products and found out they were overpriced crap. Thanks for sharing and hope you will help many others find good information AND help to make money online.

  12. I agree completely that PWA is a scam and your research points that out with some great facts and a testimony to back it up.  I think before this online scam he was involved in selling a real estate course if I’m not mistaken.  

    To get shut down by Clickbank also tells me that far too many people complained about his scam promises.  He’s one reason why online marketing can have a bad connotation for some people.  The comparison table with Wealthy Affiliate and PWA is a great idea!  Nice way to show the very real features that Wealthy Affiliate offers compared to con artist.  Thank you for outing this crook!

It is not possible to earn money fast especially that big money. Although the cost is minimal it is not worth it. It is better to invest money in some trustful training that teaches about affiliate marketing.

  14. Well, there you have it!  Well done sir, I am very impressed on the layout of your site and as a new member plan to follow you if that is okay?

    I have a couple of sites now that rank in google, I am an Amazon affiliate and CJ affiliate, also I have joined the seller central.  Unfortunately, I have yet to make a dollar but persistence I believe is key, along with stride and determination to thrive and succeed.  

    Nothing comes in easy in life and I am a hard worker, a single parent of three and determination and persistence is all I know.!  I hope you can provide some insight with my current platform.  

    Thanks again for sharing how joining this program is the right move.

  15. I have actually followed Anthony Morrison for quite some years now and I although I did not register in any of his programs I kind of thought he was the real deal until actually reading about his Partner with Anthony program. I really don’t think he delivered enough in this program and one thing about these entrepreneurs is that they know how to suck out money from people. Their years of experience has made them know exactly what makes people tick and that is exactly what they target.

    With all their upsells and membership registrations. One would wonder why all these were not included in their first price. I find this really deceptive and a lot of successful online entrepreneurs do this. Though Anthony has lots of experience I don’t think he has the best interest of the people that decide to register in this his program.

    • Hey Jay,

      Trust your gut, you’re spot on with this one.

      Anthony Morrison is a scammer with a lot of experience. He gives you ‘just not quite enough’ in his courses to force you into buying into his more expensive seminars and coaching services. That’s the only reason anyone would ever create a training program with upsells and upgrades – to get more money out of you.

      There’s a world of difference between someone creating a course because they genuinely want to see you succeed and someone creating a course to pocket more money in their own pocket. Anthony, I’m afraid, falls into the latter category.
