Who is Doug Cunnington?

There are a lot of things to say about Doug. First, I need you to know that he is my mentor when it comes to Amazon Affiliate Marketing. I’m a student of Doug. I’ve been on his YouTube channel several times and he was on the Hasta La Vista YouTube Channel as well.

So I’m a be a bit biased here … but nevertheless, this is my honest opinion about his course!

Project Manager Professional

Doug used to work a 9 to 5 job as a project manager (PMP). After being laid off from his day job, he now finally had a lot of time on his hands to go and work full time on his online business side hustle and try to make it successful.

Successful Amazon Affiliate Marketer

Not long after being laid off, Doug started to have some success with his affiliate sites. And his hard work started to pay off very soon. Now, a few years after he started his online journey, he has the freedom to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants.

Founder of Niche Site Project & Five Figure Niche Site 

NicheSiteProject.com is Doug Cunnington’s personal blog. That’s where you can find A LOT of information for FREE. Additionally, you can download some templates that Doug is using in his business for hiring people, for writing content, etc (for FREE as well).

And Five Figure Niche Site … well, that’s what we’re talking about right now. It’s his premium course.


At this point, Doug Cunnington has over 1000 videos on his YouTube channel. He shares a lot of good information for free. Plus he does a lot of interviews with people from different backgrounds, at different levels of success which many can find motivational and inspirational.


If you like to take the show on the road, Doug has a cool podcast called Doug Show where marketers and experts in different areas share their success stories, chat about how they’ve started in order to become entrepreneurs.


Doug does some coaching as well every now and then when he has time. But you should always talk to him first about it. Depending on where you are on your online journey, this might be for you or not.

What Is Five Figure Niche Site All About?

Five Figure Niche Site is an Eight Unit (or 13 units for Advanced/Premium students) course focusing on building a profitable Amazon Affiliate Niche website from scratch. The course is growing. Doug will add more lessons in the future as things are constantly changing in this industry. This will make the course relevant and up to date, no matter when you’re joining.

How The Course Is Structured?

Once you are in the course, you’ll get access to what Doug calls as Unit 0: Setting the stage.

One thing I LOVED about the course is that YOU WON’T have access to all the videos straight away.

The lessons will be released weekly or bi-weekly. Why this was EXTREMELY important to me? Well, I’m sure you’ve done other training before. Usually, as soon as you pay you’ll be able to watch all the material straight away.

What happened to me doing other courses is that having access to the lessons from day one, I went and watched all the videos in a day or 2 day … WITHOUT TAKING ANY ACTION!

And when I got to the end of course … I felt like there was SO MUCH work to do and it felt almost impossible for me to start from zero and actually do all that work.

Releasing the lessons weekly helped me a ton. Because after watching one of the lessons (a few hours) then I had 1 week to practice and apply what I’ve learned until the next lesson. Plus that will allow Doug to answer any questions you might have.

Depending on which training you’ve enrolled in (Basic, Advanced,Premium) you’ll have access to these awesome inner circle session calls in which you’ll go live with Doug and the other students and you guys will discuss the topic of that week. Plus ask Doug any questions you might have!

The cool thing is that you have access to all the previous sessions with students from other years. I found that to be one of the best resources of this course. There’s a lot of value in those calls.

Is This Course Beginner Friendly?

YES! The course IS beginner-friendly!

Doug covers all the bases. I mean, I never did internet marketing before joining his course. I was a total newbie. 
I didn’t know what niche is. I didn’t know what keyword means. 

This thing was a completely unknown thing for me. I didn’t know anything!

Who Can Enroll In The Five Figure Niche Site Course?

In my opinion…anybody that wants to have a go at building a profitable niche website.

As I said above, the course is beginners friendly. So no matter how much you know about technology, internet, making money, business, creating websites …

…you can join Doug Cunnington’s course.

Is this course for experienced marketers?! I don’t think so. It’s more for beginners and intermediate people.

What I Liked About This Amazon Affiliate Course

  • As I was mentioning earlier, one of the best things of this course is that is not releasing the content straight away. You’ll have time to watch the lessons and time to apply what you’ve learned before you move on.
  • It’s a very systematic and organized course. Once you’ve done with it, you’ll know exactly what to do if you want to build more sites. It’s a blueprint.
  • Easy to follow instructions in video and text
  • The inner circle sessions – pure gold. You can think about those as 1 on 1 coaching (even though it isn’t because there are most students on the call, but never too crowded. So you can ask Doug whatever you want)

What I Didn't Like About Doug's Course

In all honesty, there weren’t things that I didn’t like about the course.

Maybe he could’ve gone a bit more in-depth into the Gray Hat stuff. I personally don’t mind using such techniques.

One thing some people said they didn’t like about it is that you have to join a waiting list in order to enroll in the course. But you know why Doug is doing it this way?

Because he wants to work with a limited amount of students. And by having just a handful of students to work with … he will give you the best of his time!

Is Five Figure Niche Site A Scam?

No! You can REST ASSURED that this course is not a scam. Doug is one of the most genuine guys you’ll find on the internet.

What's The Price Of This Course? Is It Costly?

I’d love to tell you how much Five Figure Niche Site course cost. But I don’t know when you’re going to find this article. And Doug might change the price at any time. It could up, it could go down … I don’t know. 

Just click the button below to find out (if it’s open for enrollment, if not, you’ll have to join the list and wait for Doug to make it available for the public)

One thing I CAN tell you. It’s not cheap. It’s a premium course!
