If you’ve been online at all you’ve probably seen John Crestani (Pictured Above) pitching his product “(SAS) Super Affiliate System“. He’s well-known and there’s a lot of online advertising for SAS 3.0.
After seeing Mr. John online at least a few hundred times, I thought I take a deep dive into his program and find out just what is Super Affiliate System about. After all, he’s pretty proud of the system for the price he’s asking.
What Exactly Is Super Affiliate System?
What is Super Affiliate System about? In a nutshell, it’s a 6-week course in Affiliate Marketing.
Created by John Crestani, it has been through 3 iterations now, Versions 1, 2, and 3. Version 3 is now marketed as SAS Pro (Super Affiliate System Pro.) or just SAS for short.
Upon gaining access to SAS you are presented with the Welcome section where John introduces to the course, how it’s laid out. You get a high-level overview of Affiliate Marketing, the mindset, and how you’re going to be successful.
The rest of the course is laid out in a weekly fashion, plus the Resource Vault and Discussion Board. Before you can advance to the next week, you must complete the current weeks training. This is probably a good thing since the focus here is on paid advertising.
- Week 1: The System Setup
- Week 2: Google Ads Setup
- Week 3: YouTube Ads Setup
- Week 4: Advanced Ad Tactics
- Week 5: Presell Pages and Scaling
- Week 6: Product Selection
Week 1: The System Setup
Week one takes you through your initial steps to set up your business.
- Purchasing web hosting. Bluehost is the recommended hosting provider.
- Setting up your website.
- Joining an Affiliate Network
- Setting up your presell page through either a Clickfunnel ($19) or doing it manually which costs nothing.
- Setting up Facebook Ads.
John also covers common mistakes made at this stage of setting up your business.
Week 2: Google Ads Setup
As the title indicates, this entire week’s lesson is all about Google Adwords.
Week two starts of with an introduction to Adwords then dives straight into setting up your Adwords account.
Following this, you will learn about setting up search ads and display ads. Search ads are those you see occupying the top spots in your Google searches, while display ads are ads that are shown across Google Display Network (GDN) which includes millions of websites, videos, and applications.
You can expect to learn:
- How to set up keyword-based campaigns
- Targeting by location and device type
- Split testing
- Common mistakes
Unfortunately, there isn’t much detail on setting up match types for your keywords. So it is advisable to get some secondary education on this. Fortunately, you can find some pretty good video’s on YouTube that explains match types.
Week 3: YouTube Ads Setup
Speaking of YouTube, this is the focus of Week three.
Week 3 teaches you all about:
- Setting up your YouTube Channel
- Setting up YouTube Ads
- Common mistakes
- And John’s special Week 3 Bonus. Sorry, I can’t reveal that here.
Week 4: Advanced Ad Tactics
This week consists primarily of Facebook tactics and compliance along with some bonus videos from folks like Tim Burd and Brain Pfeiffer.
Pay particular attention to the videos on compliance. The bonus videos on how to write headlines and people hacks are pretty good also.
I would also advise finding some additional learning on copywriting to supplement this section.
Week 5: Presell Pages and Scaling
This week is all about A/B testing (Split testing) and common mistakes with presell pages. You’ll learn how to use Clickfunnels to A/B test and track conversions in order to find the best-converting pages.
Beyond that and learning how to avoid common mistakes, that pretty much sums up the weeks training. I think there could be more focus and examples on presell pages though.
Week 6: Product Selection
Up to this point, everything you’ve seen in the training has revolved around promoting SAS Pro. So I was happy to see that this section talked about the promotion of other common niches such as health and wellness.
The MMO (make money online) market is a tough market, so if you have interests in other markets that aren’t so competitive, you will do well to pay attention in this section.
You’ll also learn about other affiliate programs beyond Clickbank and how to avoid common mistakes when choosing a product to promote.
This wraps up the sections on training.
The Resource Vault
The vault contains:
- DFY Presell pages proven to work
- Ad Swipes
- Email lists
- Affiliate Networks
- Advertising Networks
The DFY Presell pages are nice. They are proven to work and a great resource. The same goes for Ad Swipes.
I’d be careful with the email lists as you could into some trouble with Facebook on these, so be careful not to violate their policies.
There is 24/7 support which is responsive. Additional support comes by way of the community forum. It’s not bad, you’ll find a lot of answered questions and have the ability to get your own questions answered as well.

Who Is Super Affiliate System 3.0 For?
Since SAS is focused on paid advertising you’re going to need an advertising budget. I can tell you from experience that it is very easy to shell out $400 to $500 or more, before seeing any type of return.
SAS is for the person who has the budget and patience to implement paid advertising campaigns.
If you are looking for something you can start on a shoestring budget, this is NOT for you. Take a look at my No. 1 program you’ll see in the next section.
How Does Super Affiliate System Measure Up?
How does SAS compare to my No. 1 product Wealthy Affiliate? Let’s check it out.
As you can see, SAS falls short in the features area. Wealthy Affiliate provides a no-nonsense, all-inclusive platform. Everything is in one place. If you are on a shoestring budget I strongly encourage you to check the Wealthy Affiliate Free Membership.
Super Affiliate System 3.0 is solidly focused on sending traffic to a funnel via paid advertising. John is surely very good at what he does. But, I am somewhat disappointed in the fact that there is really no mention of free methods to drive traffic to a presales page and funnel.
It has always been my thinking that one should learn how to drive traffic using free methods before jumping into paid advertising. Many of the skills needed to master paid traffic are learned in the process of driving free traffic. So that has always been my recommendation to anyone wanting to drive traffic with Adwords, Facebook, Bing, etc.
If you are flat out determined to master paid traffic first and you have the budget and the patience, then, by all means, indulge yourself. What is Super Affiliate System about, that’s it folks, paid traffic sources and click funnels.
