Hi, I am Coucka and I am sure you are just like me, stuck in a dead-end job I hated, never getting ahead financially, always struggling to pay the bills. God forbid if something should break like the car. Financial stress can be a truly frightening feeling that you have no control, and you are terrified wondering where the money will come from to fix the next appliance that breaks.
For nearly two years I trolled the internet looking for online employment to supplement my income. For every company I looked at, I did a Google business review. So many of those online jobs had negative comments about those businesses, which just turned me off applying. Eventually, I found Wealthy Affiliates and I couldn’t find one bad review, and here I had a chance to be my own boss.
Someone once told me “The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” so I decided to be my own boss and took a leap of faith and joined Wealthy Affiliates… It was the best decision I ever made.
“Why you might ask?”
I had no idea what affiliate marketing was about, but I was desperate enough to try anything. I was very surprised that it was fun and easy to learn. I built a website, made some friends, and I have never been happier. I love this job and Wealthy affiliates have done nothing but support, encourage and help me every step of the way.
How does Wealthy Affiliates work?
The formula for creating wealth is simple in principle. In practice, you will most probably fail on your own without a fabulous support network like Wealthy Affiliates. Unless of course, you have a degree in IT, CEO, search engine algorithms, and are a brilliant writer. (I had none of those skills, but I have learned)
Wealthy Affiliates has thousands of members who have mastered the secret of creating wealth online and all of them are available to answer your questions and support you through the process.
In my imagination can hear you saying “Why would they do that? … And what is the process?” Well, Wealthy Affiliates do this because when you succeed financially, they succeed financially. Wealthy Affiliates are 100% ethical in their business practices and they have a “Pay it Forward” philosophy, and the process looks something like this. Below is just an example of what you can do.
- You as a member of Wealthy Affiliates can start training for FREE and you can have two websites for FREE. The first 10 lessons will help you to get started and by the end of those lessons you will have your website up and running and your first blog ranked in Google. If you decided this is not for you then you can opt out and it has cost you nothing, nada, zilch. But, if you decide you love it like I did, then you can move forward on your own without technical support. Or you can pay a small monthly fee and have training, tech support for the rest of your life. A bonus is, if you pay yearly you will be given a 40% discount.
- You find a Retailer’s website that has products to sell, like Amazon for example, and let us say you love “Ladies Shoes”, or for the gentlemen, you are mad for “Football”
- Because you have a passion for ladies shoes Wealthy affiliate helps you build a niche website called “Fashion Shoes for Ladies”, or for the fella’s “Football Fanatics”. You register with Amazon to promote Amazon’s shoe products or football products
- You promote your new website on social media….
- Next Step…
- An online customer finds shoes she has been looking for on your website. She reads your blog, loves your review about these high fashion shoes and she and clicks the link you provide to send her to Amazon’s lady’s shoe department. She is thrilled, Amazon has shoes in her size and she makes the purchase…
- Next Step…
- Amazon will give you a percentage of that sale as you are an Amazon affiliate who recommended Amazon’s ladies fashion shoe products to that customer. If your customer purchases other goods from the Amazon store you will also receive a percentage of those sales too. If you are lucky and she buys an enormous flat screen TV, then you are looking pretty for the day…
- Next Step…
- That’s is about it. (Rinse and repeat) You keep looking for online shops that have the kinds of shoes you would like to promote and you sign up for their affiliate programs. Then you get their creative banners and links with your own special code so they know to pay you after the sale, and just keep building your website until you cannot stuff another shoe or football into it. The aim is to eventually have money coming in even when you stop working… This is called “Passive income”.
I have said it before and I will say it again because it is so important. If you decided this is not for you then you can opt out and it has cost you nothing, nada, zilch. But, if you decide you love it like I did, then you can move forward on your own without technical support. Or you can pay a small monthly fee and have training, tech support for the rest of your life. If you pay yearly you will be given a 40% discount.
The Secrets for Creating Wealth – The answer is SUPPORT!
- Only build one website at a time. Make sure you stick at it until it is filled out and earning good money before you build another new website. (I learnt that lesson the hard way. I won’t lie, there is a lot of work setting up.)
- Have a plan of action. This is very important and Wealthy Affiliates will help you with this.
- Set your goals and be consistent with how much time you can devote to your business each day. Remember this is a business, not a hobby, so you need to be realistic. The more work you can put into it, the faster it will begin to convert for you.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Wealthy Affiliates will reach out to support you if you just ask for help. They are experts in this profession.
- The people in the tech department are amazing and will do any tricky html coding if you are like me and cannot program.
- Follow your dream and do not let anyone talk you down. A positive mindset is essential. We are all plagued with self-doubt and insecurities. So put your Goal up on the wall where you can see it every day. Once you have achieved a milestone, let’s say the first $1,000, and then buy yourself a treat as a reward. If you are like me you will become addicted to building your website. I have so much fun and this is the first job I have ever had that I love.
- Remember. “Money is a renewable resource.” Keep this firmly in mind as you move forward, sometimes you have to spend a little to make a LOT.
