My name is David Ford - I'm the owner and founder of the Aff Playbook affiliate marketing forum. I got my start in affiliate marketing over 10 years ago when I was working an IT support job. It was a good job, but I was bored and had no opportunity to increase my income. I started looking for ways to make extra money and soon after found myself doing affiliate marketing. Within a year I was making 3x my 'real' job's salary. I quit my job, and never looked back.
Over the years, I've been successful across many traffic sources and niches. I've consulted for companies, created my own products, and coached thousands of affiliates. In 2009 I started the Aff Playbook affiliate marketing forum as a way to offer coaching and interact with other affiliates. If you're interested, you can read more about me here.
My goal with the forum is to help you build a successful affiliate business. Over the years I've seen so many affiliates who make a ton of money, but end up broke because they didn't think long term. My approach involves building your business so you don't have to sit and babysit campaigns all day, or have all your income wiped out overnight. Don't worry, I still teach how to build high income campaigns, but as part of your well diversified affiliate business. This is really what separates the Aff Playbook affiliate marketing forum from other resources.
I really love running the forum, and I think it shows. I'm in there every single day answering questions and interacting with members. Aff Playbook has a great reputation in the industry, which directly benefits members. There are numerous affiliate networks who post in the forum and help members out. Affiliate networks often tell me how they love getting Aff Playbook members as affiliates because they have the knowledge to be successful.
Step by step lessons, case studies, and tips on popular traffic sources like PPV, PPC, Facebook, Plenty of Fish, Mobile, SEO, and more. That's just the beginning though. We teach you how to turn that traffic into a real business. You'll also find...
Lessons and guides focused on product and offer creation. Learn how to get started creating your own products or offers. This is huge!
Lessons on building landing pages, implementing code, & tracking. We also have free landing page templates and code samples ready to use.
Business and productivity advice. Learn how to run your business for maximum profit and scalability. We teach you everything you need to know.
Successful affiliates, network owners, and traffic sources all happy to share their advice and help you grow your business.

The forum is a very active community that people love to be a part of. Make friends and network with successful people in the industry.
Aff Robot tools were built exclusively for Aff Playbook affiliate marketing forum members.
These tools were designed by affiliate marketers. This is an important point because so many tools are built by people who have no idea what affiliate marketers need. We designed these tools for ourselves too - we use them every day.
At least 1 new tool is added every month. Members get a say in what tools are developed, so this is a great opportunity to suggest a new tool you've always wanted.
From spy tools to scrapers, we have you covered. These are exclusive tools for Aff Playbook members.
This is just a partial list of our tools. New tools are added every month!
I recommend the AffPlaybook forums to anyone who wants to learn affiliate marketing. They have a helpful community and a huge selection of tools. A small investment in this forum will save you time and money!
David Ford is easily one of the nicest people in the industry, and he's done an afftastic job launching AffPlaybook. I always recommend this community of affiliates from all backgrounds that come together to talk affilishop with like minds. Great advise, motivation and support for all levels, with endless new goodies from follow alongs, case studies, coaching networking events, and collaboration.
Two years ago I knew NOTHING about paid marketing. Now, I run a six figure affiliate business. The pivotal point was joining AffPlaybook and being coached by 1,000’s of serious affiliates who are there to share the best of their knowledge which in many cases, have made them millions. This is definitely the place to be whether you’re just starting out and need professional coaching or have been in the industry for years and want to network.
The AffPlayBook forum is a great place for any affiliate marketer wanting to learn and grow. There are plenty of discussions and resources for newbies to experienced marketers. The forum is a great place to learn how to become more profitable and successful.
Hands down, without a doubt, the decision to join AffPlaybook.com was the pivitol moment in my affiliate marketing education. Because I'm such a strong believer in what AffPlaybook does and know first hand the results they produce, I require all my students to become Affplaybook members. It's a no brainer.
Within my first month of being a member at APB I was able to get my first profitable campaign going. A week later I had my next. In under 6 months time I was able to build up my income close to the levels I had pre Panda penalty. There is SO MUCH GREAT content in the forum it can be overwhelming. That is my only complaint about the AffPlaybook forum. If you are serious and done dicking around the internet buying shiny object courses that don't pay off then APB is for you. I've only signed my name to 2 other products in more than 10+ years in the IM field so you can bank on this statement.
APB has all the educational resources you need to be successful online in under a year. It's all in there for those who are willing to work hard and learn from industry experts.
What makes Aff Playbook different from other forums?
Aff Playbook is an affiliate marketing forum that offers a level of personal attention, coaching, and tools that goes way beyond any other program out there. You won't find any questions that go unanswered, or be left wondering what to do next. Another thing that makes Aff Playbook truly unique is that I teach you how to build a stable, long term affiliate business with real world examples.
Other forums teach you how to build campaigns, but don't tell you what to do when that campaign stops working. Chasing down campaign after campaign, or traffic source after traffic source and spending all day watching your campaigns gets tiring. That's why most affiliates don't last more than 6 months in this business. We teach you campaigns and strategies that actually last and free up your time to build other areas of your business. That's not something you can find on any other forum and a big reason why we have a large number of members who have been with us for years.
Do I need any prior experience?
A basic understanding of how affiliate marketing works is helpful. However, we do have tons of resources for the motivated beginner who wants to get started.
How much money can I make?
It depends on what you want to focus on. To do PPV, PPC or any other form of paid traffic advertising you need some money to spend on traffic. Joining our coaching program will save you a ton of money that you would otherwise spend testing and learning on your own. We also teach methods you can use without spending any money. Please be aware that with paid traffic such as PPV, you might spend a lot of money before finding your first profitable campaign. We have some great lessons on making money without buying traffic too.
