How to make money with Amazon - Free Course by Alex + Interview with Alex Whalley

Alex Whalley is  another awesome blogger who started blogging at the same time when i did. I’ve learned so many things from Alex!

It’s really cool to get awesome tips from those who has been blogging for a while and don’t mind to share their tips and advice for free, yesterday Alex launched a Free course I would like to share with you.

What is Build Rank Profit?

Alex says at Build Rank Profit.. is a website devoted to showing you just how easy it is to make money from niche sites and affiliate marketing.

If you wish to get access to the Modules contained within these pages you will need to sign up via email on the right in order to receive the FREE E-COURSE. Once inside you will have access to over 20 Modules, containing everything you need to know to make money from Niche Sites and the Amazon Associates Affiliate Program, and trust me when I tell you that you will not be disappointed!

Interview with Alex Whalley

1. First, can you tell us a bit about yourself. How long have you been blogging/marketing online and why you started the Bluildrankprofit course?

Sure thing. I am 32 years old and a fulltime father of two living about 20 minutes outside of Sydney, Australia. I have been married for 5 years to the most beautiful woman in the world and before I started blogging and attempting to make money online I was a lot of things, but mainly I was in Sales and Marketing in the IT sector – really exciting stuff!?

I first started my blog in February of 2010 and I had been studying various online methods of making money for about 6 months prior to that.

My Journey has been an interesting one to say the least, but in a nutshell I think I dabbled in everything before i eventually found blogging. The rest, they say  is history. ;)

The BuildRankProfit Course came about as a result of my realization that I needed to merge my online relationships (my blogging) with what it was that was actually making me money.

It is my way of showing those who are just starting, or who have exhausted every avenue trying – just how easy it is to make money online.

2. What is Buildrankprofit all about? And why should someone join. What’s your Unique Selling Point?

So what’s it all about?

BuRP is all about building Amazon niche sites and getting lots of Organic Traffic.

Why did I choose this particular route?

Blogging for money, for example is REALLY hard work, and takes months and months of dedication, building relationships, establishing credibility and fostering a sense of community, but with niche sites and Amazon this is not the case – in fact it’s so far from it you can put all that list building and blogging mumbo jumbo down for good. With good SEO and physical products, you are giving the people what they already want, and this course shows you the best way to do that.

Why should you Join?

Apart from the fact that it’s totally FREE you mean?
BuRP is A step by step guide/account of everything I have done to go from earning absolutely nothing online to making over $1000 each and every month with the Amazon Associates Program. Although it does take a lot of work early on (nothing good ever came from ‘easy’) documented here are the exact steps you need to take to build a profitable site, as well as link building strategies that actually work! Subscribe to the BuildRankProfit Course and get instant Access to the lot!

My Unique Selling Point is quite simply ‘Teaching you how to Build, Rank and Profit from Amazon affiliate niche sites’ because that is exactly what you will learn when you sign up.

3. Anything you would like to share with our readers?

I just want to thank you again Dev for taking the time to get to know me and let me tell everyone about my new Course. I know I am a familiar face to a lot of you and I appreciate the journey we have shared so far (you especially Dev!) so it’s a privilege and an honor to be able to (hopefully) give back some of the value that has so freely been given to me over the last 12 months.

Don’t forget to Sign up at BuildRankProfit

Do you make any money with amazon? Do you anything to add?  Please share with us!

Hi Devesh,

Excellent interview, one of my goals is to create a niche site this year and the free course by Alex is definitely one i will be entering to know all about the secrets.

I agree with Alex said. This requires hard work and we need to put in the time and effort to see some revenue.

I just started an Amazon niche site of my own; Alex found my blog that I created to document my experiences and gave me some useful, unsolicited advice. He is a genuine guy and his site is full of terrific information.

Hey Dev,

I can totally understand what Alex is doing, he’s rather mysterious about this Amazon thing and he finally got it out for all the world to see :D Haha Alex, if you read this, you would probably know what I meant ;) I totally agree with his stand on blogging. It is hard hard work, nuff said.

Anyway, I’ve joined the dark side, taken this challenge and have gotten a site up and running already!
I’m sure things are working well for you Alex. You must have a bunch of this niche sites around by now.

This sounds like a simply awesome system for anyone looking to make some extra moeny from Amazon affiliate profits. You are always in depth and cover your topics very well. I am sure this is going to be a real kick ass tool from BuRP. (excuse you)

Having done Blogging, Affiliate Marketing and a “little” bit of niche marketing I can say that Blogging is the toughest of the models and Niche and AM both have ways that you can turn your hard work into cash with a lot more rapidity.

Thanks Dev for a great interview and thanks to Alex for what seems to be a wonderful product.

Well Alex,

“You da Man!”
And Devesh – “You da Man too” for doing this interview with Alex and sharing such valuable info with us.

I think it’s about time I take a very serious look at that course. I already signed up now and about to activate my subscription :) .

Alex – Seeing your work in general and the amount of informative/helpful information you put out there, I have no doubt that this too (BuRP) will be extremely thorough. I look forward to reading it and will make sure to ask you if I have any questions a long the way – as I haven’t wondered around those parts yet.

Keep doin’ what you do so well my friend! Learning from you is a pleasure.

Hey Alex,

So you are getting your little secrets out to the world?!

Blogging is a though ‘little’ nut to crack. You have to write, engage and wait years to gain trust, influence just to break even. You have to be really dedicated.

I am not saying the amazon doesn’t necessitates dedication, but with you sharing the knowledge Alex I know we will do well :D .

P.S. I think Ingrid watched Nick Vujicic motivational videos :P

Hi Alex & Devesh,

Great interview! It truly is amazing how far both of you’ve come in such a short time in the world of blogging. In the “real” world you are looking at 3-5 years before see the type of results you both have. Congrats!

Alex – your course sounds very interesting. I’m reluctant to sign up only because I already have so much on my plate, however, given that it’s you that created it, how can I possibly pass on it?!?! You are a force to be reckoned with and I have no doubt your course and anything that follows will be exceptional.

OK, off to sign up and thank for your generosity! :-)

I think Alex nailed it with this one – I definitely need to get a hold of him again on Skype because it’s been some time since we both started digging into Amazon. This stuff has been an amazing ride since starting, sales have continued to climb and over the holiday break they really rocked when you combine in a bit of email marketing and “best gifts guide”
