Have you come across this system called Super Affiliate Network and you are wondering what is this platform all about?
Or, you may have seen a “review” on YouTube explaining how great this platform is.
It seems promising, right? Finally, a system that will work out and can bring you the long-awaited side income.
This system has been around for a while, an owner is a real person, so it is probably legit.
But is that really so?
Don’t you think there is a lot of hype about the Super Affiliate Network?
At first, you are told that you can join for free, or for just a couple of bucks, and in the end, you may end up paying several thousands of bucks?
Why is it so?
The full price should be revealed right at the beginning, or am I too naive?
The more you dig into the product more you have the impression that this is a pyramid scheme.
Is the Super Affiliate Network a Scam?
We are going to go over the SAN step by step and by the end of this review, you will have a clear picture of what is the SAN about.
Here is what we are about to cover:
- Who is behind the SAN
- How to join
- What is the price structure
- and more
You have probably already seen some reviews of the SAN, most of them sound almost like “too-good-to-be-true” and I believe you want to find an unbiased review of this system.
Well, here we go.
Please note, that I am not a member or an affiliate of Super Affiliate Network. This review is based on research and information available online in the public domain.

Super Affiliate Network Overview
Product Name: Super Affiliate Network
Price to Join: $1 +$47 monthly (Upsells up to $12,497)
Creator: Misha Wilson
Do I recommend it? Not – It can become too expensive
Super Affiliate Network Review – Summary
The Super Affiliate Network is training on affiliate marketing using mainly Solo Ads.
To figure this out took me quite a bit since it is not clear what this SAN is actually about. They use a lot of videos within the platform but there is no practical value.
The main problem is the price structure where the most expensive program costs almost $12,500!
Another issue I see with the Super Affiliate Network (SAN) is that it focuses heavily on self-promotion and it is not far from the pyramid scheme.
This is not the way how to build a sustainable business online.

Super Affiliate Network Review (SAN)
The Super Affiliate Network was founded in 2015 by Misha Wilson. (We will talk about him in a bit).
This system is supposed to teach you how to make money using digital marketing. They offer online courses and mentorship and also one-on-one coaching mostly by video courses.
What I find disturbing about the SAN is the way how they promote the product.
According to the sales video (or the introduction page), I saw this program is for everyone and there are only 3 steps to follow:
- Copy what your mentor does and learn from him/her
- Take what the mentor is doing and apply it
- Enjoy the freedom and lifestyle
This is a screenshot from one SAN introduction video :
They want us to believe that it takes a few days to generate 4-digit revenue.
This is too oversimplified and no business (and that applies to internet business) works that way.
It requires a lot of work and effort, and also a bit of time until you see the first result.
How To Join?
You can join this system for free.
To be more specific you can create your account within the SAN for free. Just use your name and email address and you are good to go.
We will check how the platform looks a bit later.
What I want you to tell at this point, is that even if you are inside the platform you can’t go anywhere. I mean everything is locked and you have to pay the basic membership which costs $1 (or $7 I saw both offers).
After that, you are obliged to pay $47 a month for this basic membership.
Who Is Behind Super affiliate network?
Initially, I thought that this was a kind of scammy product and they use only actors in their promotional videos.
I mean it certainly looked that way, just by looking at the information above.
And believe me, I wanted to be as unbiased as possible, but the impression I got led me to a suspicion that this is some kind of fake system.
Well, it is not fake.
The SAN is a real system with a real guy behind it.
His name is Misha Wilson:
As we see, Misha Wilson is a real person and he is the creator of Super Affiliate Network.
Misha lives in Hawai and his website thesuperaffiliatenetwork.com is also registered in Hawai.
He and a bunch of other guys working behind this platform, and do a good job, especially when it comes to supporting.
Who is it for?
According to the sales video and the claims, the SAN is supposed to be for everyone. This system is so good that every person can copy it and put it into action and make thousands of dollars.
Well, again some kind of hype.
I mean, I don’t like such statements.
Let’s check part of the Keysha Bass promotional video:
“…and you begin to make sales in no time”
Is it really true that this kind of overhyped stuff works?
Do people really believe that fluff?
Like for “minimum effort you change your life”.
Come on – this is an insult to every person who tries to find a way how to make this internet business work.
On one hand, they say how easy this is, on the other hand, they try to act like a professional system, meaning they are not a “push-button” scheme.
Let me tell you that the SAN is not for everyone. First of all, to get everything off of this course, you need to spend thousands of dollars with questionable results.
Who has at least $1,000 for a shady course?
It reminds me of the over-hyped systems such as MOBE or other scams. As you know this system was shut down by the FTC (FTC Action Halts MOBE).
Why do I compare it with MOBE?
Because of similar patterns these systems have, we will see more in the price structure.
Don’t get me wrong.
I hope the SAN will work and they will try to improve (maybe make it available for more people) so more people will be happy with such a course.
How does Super Affiliate Network Work?
After signing up you are on the dashboard of the SAN.
At the top of the page, you see 3 training phases that you can take.
First Phase has 5 different modules:
I could not figure out how to start with the module.
It seems to be locked.
If I want to go back to the product or back to the Bootcamp, it does not work somehow.
It makes me confused.
That thing is that this free access is worthless since you have no access to the training whatsoever.
You have to actually buy the basic membership for $1 as a trial. Then the membership costs $47 each month.
What I find really annoying is the entire process of purchase – you gotta go through all the videos and upsells.
No skip button, in fact, you feel like you are stuck in this entire system – and no escape.
It reminds me of Starting from Zero, where I wanted to get just the book.
And I could not get it since there were upsells upon upsells and stuff like: “wait for this offer” and “here is a bonus” and this kind of nonsense.
In the end, I had to contact the support so they emailed me that book.
Here is the list of the SAN upsells or a complete Price Structure:
Basic Membership $1 for a 30 days trial – after that $47 per month
You have access to 3 phases with 21 modules. Each module is for 1 day, so this is a 21 days course.
A “personal coach” is included. After each module, this coach will ask you questions. Apparently, he wants to make sure that you understand what you have just learned. After that you get the next module unlocked.
Here is what is covered:
- Email Marketing
- List Building
- Follow Up
- One-on-One coaching
- Weekly webinars
You have an option to “save” $10 per month if you skip the $1 trial.
Right after the purchase, you’ll be hit with 2 upsells.
- Solo Ad Success Formula for $97 (one-time offer)
- Super Affiliate Monthly Newsletter for an additional $47 (one-time offer)
Pro Membership – $2,497 (one-time offer)
With this membership, you are getting better support and you have access to better training,
For example, you have access to a private FaceBook group, and also, and this is interesting, you have access to any products that might be available in the future.
Unless this product is part of the next membership.
What a tricky “option”, isn’t it?
So here is briefly what you get:
- Systematic profits (not sure how they do that)
- Solo Ads Success Formula (Sounds like you can’t go wrong with this…)
- Push Button Swipe File
- Weekly Pro Coaching
Now, this is going to be interesting:
“Maui” Intensive Mentoring – $12,497 (one-time offer)
This is a 4-days event at Maui (It is an island in the Central Pacific, part of the Hawaiian island group).
You will be working directly with Misha’s team members so you can help to grow your business (at least it is what they say about this session).
It is pretty expensive for a long weekend on Holliday.
It is believed that the more you “invest” the bigger ROI you get.
Unfortunately, it does not work that way.
Sure you can get some investment back, but the chances you get to break even are slim.
There is this misconception among a lot of people that Misha is aware of.
The thing is that still a lot of people think that once a product costs several thousand dollars, it must be good.
Well, it is not always like that, especially when it comes to digital products – as a perfect example is the Prosperity Income Network.
So Again – How It Works?
I admit, it has not been very clear.
The SAN is a system that teaches you how to make money using affiliate marketing.
But the program is limited to email marketing and solo ads only. There is much more to learn about how to run an online business using affiliate marketing. For example, you need a website to know how to get traffic to your website.
The SAN shows you how to reach people using solo ads which may be tricky. Apparently, they have their own “carefully selected list” of vendors, so you would get the best response.
As I said Solo Ads are tricky, because buying this kind of traffic is never a good idea, especially for beginners. You don’t know whether people on that list, really exist, whether they are interested in your offer, and besides it is a bit spammy.
With a “carefully selected list” there are other issues.
How many members are there within the SAN?
They all use the same vendor(s) right?
What would be the result of it?
The potential customers are getting the same spammy emails…
The SAN should teach you how to create a website and how to get organic traffic.
It takes some time though and people are not patient.
So they rather pay for the course and see quick results. but is this something sustainable?
Did I mention that solo ad – costs money?
Depending on the package you may end up paying thousands of dollars.
I have spent thousands of dollars on ads as a beginner and got nothing back. I did not know what I was doing.
The SAN is apparently for beginners – the same as I was a time ago.
Besides, you will be advised to promote the SAN only, since the money is in the commissions. So it works like MLM or a pyramid scheme.
Super affiliate network – The Claims vs Facts
Let me go over some red flags I don’t like.
1) Teaching Affiliate marketing, but in fact, the emphasis is on Email Marketing using Solo Ads
Pay for the email list and send this copied text to a bunch of people who have no idea where this email is coming from.
Isn’t this spam?
And Imagine then other members of the SAN do the same…
What kind of results you can get?
2) Focus on self-promotion only
Yes, you can make some money if some other person buys this system. So you get a commission.
But other than that, forget about it.
(not mentioning the cost for the solo ads).
3) Training in affiliate marketing, but signs of pyramid scheme (self-promotion)
On the one hand, you can promote the SAN which is a good thing.
But only up to the membership you have purchased.
Meaning if you purchase the basic membership and you recruit someone who buys the higher Pro Membership, your commission is only based on the membership you have.
This is unfair in my opinion.
It forces you to buy the higher and more expensive modules.
The same way operates also the Prosperity Income Network, which in my opinion is an outright pyramid scheme.
4) Claims about free training but the course is locked
They use deceptive marketing tactics.
Saying that the course costs $1 (or $7) and then you have to go through the funnel of upsells and hidden fees is not an honest way how to find customers.
Well, it may be working for Misha, but in my opinion, the price structure should be revealed right at the beginning.
But Misha (and other similar marketers) have a different opinion.
They want you to lure in for a couple of bucks and once you are in the system they think it’ll be easier to draw from you a couple of thousands.
Is Super Affiliate Network Legit?
For some it is legit, for others, it is not. It is not an outright scam, that’s for sure.
My point is that every person has a different definition of a scam.
You get your training (even though it is a bit shady), you get support and you are part of an active Facebook community. People seem to be happy and they even may have some results.
But on the other hand, it overpromises and underdelivers.
Not mentioning the price structure.
I think it is safe to say that the Super Affiliate Network is misleading and it is obvious that the only one who gets something out of it is Misha himself and some promoters.
You can check other reviews on the BBB (Better Business Bureau) website to get a full picture.
What I like
- Creator – Misha Wilson – is a real person (unlike many other systems)
- A lot of video training with some value in it
- 30 days money-back guarantee
What I don’t like
- Deceptive marketing tactics
- Solo Ads – can become expensive
- The price for the entire system (upsells up to $12,000+)
How About An Alternative?
I have not learned internet marketing by myself either.
I also needed some platform and let me tell you, it was not easy to find a system that teaches what really works.
But the cost I pay for the course is about $495 per year including the price for the domain.
The platform teaches how to drive free traffic, how to create valuable content, and eventually how to monetize the traffic.
Besides, it has 400+ video training including email marketing.
Now I drive organic traffic to my own website – meaning I don’t pay for traffic.
Disadvantage – it may take up to a year to get solid traffic.
But how long does it take for a regular business to take off?
There are certain criteria for the website until it gets OK from google.
Yes, it is time-consuming but it is the best way when you want to create a sustainable business online.
Here is a little comparison of both
I don’t recommend the SAN. They may have OK support. Some people who are promoting the SAN probably make some money, but this is not how a real business online should look like.
This is just another one of those: “hey I teach you how to make money – Buy my course and sell it to others so they can also teach others how to make money…”
Just another vicious circle.
There is no real value in there.
I will leave a link at the bottom of the post – you can take a look directly at the educational platform I was mentioning.
And you don’t have to use your credit card.
Use your email and you can test it out for free for an entire week. After that, you will decide whether you want to continue or not.
There is no risk since you only access the platform using your email address.

Thank you for this review.
I found myself immersed in their training during my days off last weekend. I purchased the teaser + 2 upsell products, their marketing is clean and professional, and a 30 days money back guarantee – but that was my first red flag, the ‘in my face’ guarantee was not congruent with the fine print. I took a screen print. I wanted to see what was behind the curtain.
Then – it got good – then weird. Modules – but they were like ‘puppy-doggin’ – I got through all the ‘training’ which was ‘ok’ in regards to a business mindset, but – nothing related to what I thought I paid for. Then, I had to complete some kind of Q&A to qualify to open up the next part of the training. It was all pre-sales for an upsell kind of thing. A long story short – I fast played the videos (all were longer than need, but seemed to be authentic), and a coach assigned to me, I had to paste answers to Skype, and …Grrrrr…I realized I’m dealing with an elaborate onboarding to a large upsell process. It was as if I ‘paid’ to enroll myself into a long – process to pre-qualify me to be closed on a more expensive program.
Gaslighting along the way about ‘mindset’ and ‘willingness to be teachable’; and all sorts of b.s. mlm – tactics going back to the good old days of MLM 30+years ago. Instead of launching an affiliate marketing training process, I wasted two days inside a weird convoluted sales funnel with incongruent statements, and worse. They literally demonstrated they clearly were not functioning from the very principles they were teaching. I politely pointed out these incongruencies, asking about the 3 programs I had already purchased, why all the ‘posturing’ and it felt like some kind of MLM thing. I was just interested in exploring the possibility of developing a time-efficient revenue stream part-time to add to my existing cashflows/assets.
The ‘PRO’ they build things out, guarantees a 30% conversion (wow…), they talked about needing 4 products setup, but in this process, you are buying 1, and then they are throwing in 1 free!! (…but…they just told me…I needed 4?)
Then there is this big 24hrs to make a life-changing decision. On one hand, ‘this is easy’, ‘done for you’, while the questions are ‘I’m willing to work and make it happen with every minute of time I can scrub out of my life, I will not be denied!!’ – me…so, which is it? After two days, I suffered through the processes, unlocked more ‘training’ (1 part training 99 parts prep to upsell), and I finally got to schedule a $500 ‘free’ coaching call – but then I had to fill out an extensive pre-qualification form to see if I was ‘worthy’ and ‘serious’ for consideration?
I provided some honest answers and professional business feedback. (shaking my head). Well, that didn’t go over very well. More gaslighting, not ‘open-minded’ enough, or I don’t have the ‘right attitude’, etc. Ok, yea, I’m not a devotee that can be ramped up around landing my own 747 on a private aircraft carrier in the Bahamas (a metaphor, they didn’t promise me that…).
Do they really work with Homeless People doing this on a cell phone? Now I’m wondering how they get them funded to pay for their training. The testimonials were nice and good, their process screamed – MLM – which I am not totally against, but the posturing and things were unnecessary.
In composing this comment I am realizing it is time to get my money back from what I purchased which launched me into a weird process to upsell the ‘Pro’ thing. The only thing missing was – Jesus behind the next curtain tying religion into the business process somehow. (I really don’t want to know what is behind the curtain anymore.)
Not my first rodeo; but wow, just weird.
Hello and thanks a lot for a thorough review.
I personally don’t like the MLM “kind of business”, but I wanted to offer an unbiased review.
However, even based on your experience, is obvious that Super Affiliate Network is not what it looks like.
Hopefully many other people will read the review and your comment so they’ll be able to make an objective opinion.
Thanks again and wishing you all the best.
Actually, if you feel like it, you can check the alternative I offer above (called Wealthy Affiliate).
Compare those two platforms to have a better overview.
As I mention, there is no risk, since you can access the platform just by using your email address.
(But don’t want to sound too pushy or salesy 😉 )
Have a good one!
I’m sorry but I hadn’t come across Super Affiliate Network, but this program must be a joke surely.
In summary from your review the free access gives you the ability to pay for membership and nothing else. The memberships gives you access to a few basic training modules that teaches you how to do email marketing but not much more The pro membership gives you access to facebook group, WOW! and the exclusive membership gives you a 4 day holiday for almost $12,500 with Mishi himself! Is this guy Robert Redford out of Indecent Proposal?
I’m sorry for being sarcastic , but I really can’t believe anybody would fall for such a product!
On the other hand, I do know that your recommended product Wealthy Affiliate is definitely worth the money and should be considered by everyone that is thinking of running an online business from home.
Thank you for the review, I think I will give Super Affiliate Network a miss.
It is perfectly OK to be sarcastic 😉
That is actually the best “reaction” since the Super Affiliate Network is really not worth it.
Thanks a lot for your comment
I read important information and enjoyed it very much. Even I learned something that I never knew. So thank you very much.
You are very welcome.
Glad you find the article valuable.
If you have any further questions, let me know
Well, there is no harm in giving out a trial on this product, But we all have to be careful as there is a lot of scams on the internet that even don’t ask for a fee at first but later they mastermind something and hit your even bigger they suppose initial, I am talking from experience but…this one is worthy of a trial.
Thanks for your comment
Yeah, it is good to know that Super Affiliate Network is not a scam.
I am sure a lot of people will like this platform – in the worst-case scenario, they can always ask for the money back, as Misha has a 30-day money-back policy.
Hello there, Thanks for sharing this awesome article i have heard a lot about the super affiliate system. I know it would help a lot of people as it is really well detailed..
Currently, the rate of scam on the internet today is high, but I think I would give this one a try as I love to do experiments and this would be my next field of testing.
You are right,
there are many scams out there and sometimes it is not easy to spot such a fraudulent site right away.
Super Affiliate System is one of the decent ones, although the price is high.
For those who have a budget, this can be really a game changer.
thank you for your comment
Wealthy Affiliate seems superior to the Super Affiliate Network. I am sure much of the training at SAN can be found on WA. Plus, I prefer to learn how to effectively learn about organic web traffic and SEO which is the focus at WA as opposed to relying on any type of paid advertising. Plus, I really don’t like up sells. I want to pay the price one time and receive the training I paid for.
I agree with you.
As for the upsells – welcome to the club 🙂
We are on the same page here.
To get the organic traffic – sure it requires time and effort but it is well worth it in the long run.
Once you learn how to rank well in Google, you basically can be successful in any niche. And that is what Wealthy Affiliate teaches.
I’m really happy to have come across your review of Super Affiliate Network. I had been trying to do some research on this and could not find a lot of real information. Anyway, you took care of it for me here. I’m very surprised to see these cons of the Super Affiliate Network and now I know what to do. I have done a little research on your recommendation of Wealthy Affiliate and I feel way more comfortable moving forward with it. Wealthy Affiliate looks like it is the real deal.
Thanks a lot for your comment.
Super Affiliate Network is just one of those that just overpromise and underdeliver.
And the price they ask – it is ridiculous.
One does not need to invest thousands of dollars to learn affiliate marketing.
I think that it is necessary to be clear about what you want to offer as a platform . issues like this is what makes a bad review on platforms that are genuine and helpful. been reliable is the key to getting the hearts of the public. thank you for this review. it has been helpful to me.
Glad you find it helpful.
I do believe that people should have a second opinion as well. They should see a bigger picture before signing up for some system.
Wishing you all the best
I really enjoyed reading your review about the Super Affiliate Network.
I did not know a lot about Super Affiliate Network, but your review was really helpful in adding to my knowledge. It is hard to believe that alone would pay almost $12,500 for a course (Even if it includes 4 days at the island)
I think there is no real value in that.
Thanks a lot.
Hi and thank you for your comment.
I agree with you.
It takes more than just being 4 days with some marketing gurus. You have to take action as well.
And if a person is looking for a breakthrough in his/her thinking, I believe there are much cheaper personal training delivering at least the same quality…
IMHO the Super Affiliate Network is not worth it.
There is no way i would be paying as high as 12,000 usd for a program. this is a method of extortion and people who are not wise enough will fall for it. if there is no transparency about the told money to be spent, what is the essence of engaging the platform in the first place.
The bad part is that they will not deal with the affiliate marketing but rather into something else. thank you for your honest review of this platform.
This is not a first product asking such a ridiculous amount of money for a course – and even if it includes a couple of days being “on-site”.
But there are people who are willing to pay for it.
In my opinion, one would be much better off spending a few thousand on programs like Unleash the Power Within by Tony Robbins, which costs around 1/3 of it (depending on the ticket).
I know that does not teach you how to start with affiliate marketing, but it will give you a proper mindset. And after that, you can sign up for an affiliate marketing course.
I know that one of the best platform teaching affiliate marketing costs less than $500 per year, and this platform is definitely much more thorough than the super affiliate network.
Thanks a lot for your comment,
I don’t think its a scam but there is only one way to prove it is to try it out and hope for the best..thanks for putting out this awesome article i know it would help a lot of the public as it has been of help to me…i must say keep up the good work i have been following your blog and i must say you have one of the best content.
Yeah, that is called “hope marketing”. I tried that many times and it never worked out 🙂
I am glad you like the article.
Hopefully, it will help others to form an opinion.
Thank you, Sophia, for your kind words, I am happy you like the content
Really appreciate it
Wishing you all the best
