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?

Wealthy AffiliateThe 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.


Wealthy Affiliate

  • 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.

Next Step…

Amazon shoes
  • 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”

Next Step…

  • 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

Next Step…


  • 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.

How does YouTube make money?

How does YouTube make money?  – Simple, YouTube will generate likes and subscribers which will bring traffic to your website. You will probably hear many times people telling you “The money is in your list” they mean your list of subscribers and the quickest way to generate a list is on YouTube.

Once you are established on YouTube as a regular affiliate who posts weekly, or daily (Even better) you will eventually get an email from YouTube saying that YouTube would like you to join their Partnership program.

This means YouTube will allow you to put Google Adsense on the pages where you’ve got your videos on YouTube, and if anyone clicks on those ads… You get a commission!

Okay granted, it is not a lot, in fact, it’s can be anything from 1 cent to a couple of dollars per click but that doesn’t matter because over time those pennies add up as your presence on YouTube grows. When you have a hundred videos uploaded that are again, getting thousands of views every single day! As you can see, this adds up to be a pretty tidy sum that builds up nicely in your Google Adsense account.

The point is money can come in from many sources not just your website and every little bit helps.

Most viewers will not be bothered about the ads popping up before the video. They can click them off if they choose, but most people usually sit through a 10 to 15-second add unless they have seen it before. I would recommend starting to make as many videos as you can and upload them to YouTube. Over time, the views will come and as result… So will the invitation to join the YouTube Adsense Partnership program.

YouTube is also an awesome way to brand yourself as an authority in your niche. Over time you will be an authority from the hundreds of hours spent writing and researching for your blog. The best thing about YouTube is the traffic you get is 100% free and it’s totally “set & forget”.

Yes, there is a LOT of competition, but there are ways to boost your rankings and you can also add links to drive viewers to your web page. You can also load your YouTube video on your website too. Click on the video link below it will take you to a Video which will explain how you can use your competition to your advantage by seeing who ranks highest in your niche. Keyword research is essential to dominating YouTube, so rather than reinventing the wheel, you should look at the people who are doing it best and copy them. Literally.


  • Copy the Tile
  • Copy the Description
  • Copy all the tags
  • Copy the Channel name into the tags section
  • Put your channel name in all of your video’s and add all of this to your competing video

This will rank you very high in the suggested videos section which is hit regularly.

You know what we all want when it comes to traffic generation? Fast results, so here is a method to get lots of traffic. Hit the Video link below to watch the video hosted by James Scholes.

  • First up, it’s 100% FREE to implement.
  • Brain-numbingly EASY to do – no previous experience required.
  • Brings in lightning FAST results.
  • Copy down all keywords that get the most searches in a month. Three or five words is best
  • Click on review plan
  • Go to keywords stage
  • Go to match types – exact match – yes grab the ones with the most searches
  • Keyword + your topic, long-tailed, high volume traffic
  • Tools & Resources Mentioned in the Video  Online Character Count  and  Google Keyword Planner

If you have Jaxxy you can use that too. But resist the temptation for low hanging fruit. Go for keys word with huge traffic and 4 to 5 words long.

Once you have your primary and secondary keywords then you need to create a YouTube video title

Using the online character count as you cannot have any more than 100 characters in your YouTube video. Try to use all 100 characters to increase your chance of ranking with your primary and secondary keywords.

YouTube ranks from top to bottom in order in their suggested videos list.

Once you have your title upload your video using your new title.

Then add your primary keywords in front of your secondary keywords then put them in your tag section. (This increases your ranking on YouTube)

Then fill in the description and put in a plug to your website then put the title of the video and description.

And don’t forget to ask your viewers to like and subscribe at the end of the description

(DO NOT KEYWORD STUFF THE DESCRIPTION BOX) This is a NO NO and you can get banned from YouTube for doing this.

Upload your video with its new researched keyword rich title.

This will generate likes and subscribes which will bring traffic to your website.

After 2 days your ranks will begin to slip. You can post a new video once a week but every day is optimum.

So don’t worry if you’re noobie at internet marketing… This will work for you, and before you know it you will have a great list.
