Frequently Asked Questions

Need more convincing? Let us clear things out for you!


What makes Affiliate Academy different from all the other affiliate marketing courses?

The internet can be a confusing place and the most popular search results don’t always provide the best answers. Many self-proclaimed marketing gurus take advantage of curious beginners and in the end they are the ones who benefit the most from their courses.

Affiliate Academy by Voluum is different, because:

  1. It provides solid knowledge from true experts – the creators of a world-renowned affiliate platform
  2. The step-by-step instructions are created and consulted with the people who actually build the tools you will be using!
  3. It’s free!

I have no experience in affiliate marketing. Is Affiliate Academy by Voluum for me?

Yes! Our first course is for people exactly like you. It doesn’t require any marketing knowledge – just a computer and the will to start making money online!

Affiliate marketing isn’t new to me, but I struggle to make a profit out of it. Will you teach me how to fix that?

Sure! We recommend you take a closer look at courses 2 & 3. They will teach you how to properly set up, A/B test, track and optimize affiliate campaigns. You will learn many useful tricks to minimize your costs & maximize the profit!

Is Affiliate Academy by Voluum really free? Why?

Yes, it’s completely free! Why? To make things way easier for you... and for us :)

Since we are the creators of Voluum ad tracker, we talk to a lot of affiliates everyday. Many of them face the exact same challenges!

Turning all the useful knowledge we have into a series of online courses means less of the same questions have to be asked & answered. You can learn faster and we have more time to come up with new course topics & technical innovations. Everybody’s happy ;)

Do I need any additional software or extra money to spend to complete the course?

Yes & no. If you are a beginner, start with Course 1. It’s a basic overview of how affiliate marketing works and requires only your enthusiasm and hunger for knowledge.

Courses 2 & 3 on the other hand are more practical. They show you how to do things step-by-step using certain affiliate tools.

That’s why – to follow along – it is highly recommended to have an active Voluum tracker subscription, be registered to an affiliate program, and have a topped-up traffic source account. No worries though! All our students get special deals for VOLUUM, MOBIDEA, PROPELLERADS and ZEYDOO platforms!

However, we believe there’s no better way of learning than doing. So soak up the knowledge and start putting it to good use as soon as possible. Your affiliate dream is waiting!

How long does it take to complete all Academy courses?

Our classes are full of videos & reading materials, so everything depends on the way you like to absorb new knowledge. Will you focus 100% on learning?
