This blog is for you if you have ever been:

Harassed on social media by those guru-esque make money from home Ads?

Had Ads of people telling you that they did $30k a day and bought a new Lamborghini with the earnings all from dropshipping.

Saw a FB post about how someone was broke now they own a 90-room mansion

Had your Instagram scroll interrupted by some punk kid telling you he sleeps at night and wakes up with $5k push button simple.

Stop! Stop! Stop! 🤮🤮🤮 I cant take it anymore either.

You have seen the Ads and heard the stories and I know it blends reality with fiction at times. I’m a marketer full time and it really bugs me how many people get taken for a ride by this garbage.

What makes me want to make a difference is that a lot of the “guru’s” are just preying on brand newbies who are just starting out.

Every ecommerce guru with a course

I went through it the exact same as many of you who are reading this. *Avoid Avoid Avoid the pretenders like the baby face guru in the above picture, do your research.

When I was brand new to online marketing it was horrible.

The wolves were in sheep’s clothing and at every turn there was an upsell for the latest hot new thing.

Straight up I’ll save you the pain, there is no push button make money online trick or hack.

Everything requires some work. The work is nothing like a full-time job but it is required to build anything of value.

The hard work is in the setup and that’s where so many people fail because it does take some work.

But the good news is once you have the setup in place the work you do starts to compound and money really does come in overnight.

I’m the founding backbone that started this blog and that’s my introduction

How Did I get Here?

I Went Down A Familiar Rabbit Hole


My first ever online marketing experience I was retargeted with this ad for a super slick promo video of a affiliate marketing course called The Rich Jerk.
This promo video featured some familiar faces being Dennis Rodman, Nick Nolte, Ron Jeremy and a host of attractive women in bikinis……………………….of course I stopped.
The chicks were hanging off a jerk of a guy in his (obviously fake) mansion, driving a Lambo and wearing a silk robe.
He was rude, obnoxious and overly confident, classic lead actor syndrome. The actor played that part very well.

The appeal was simple, he was successful and making money online. He had famous friends and hot lady friends because he knew this one little secret. I could learn that secret as well but it cost just $997, plus two upsells for done for you and a mastermind group experience.

I cringe now but I am thankful I took that course. The customer journey from start to finish was quite slick and looking back it was very well done. I did’nt go from a zero to a hero overnight as described in the sales video, but I am doing really well after learning the basics in that course and piecing my own success to a system that suited my marketing style.

I do not own a Lambo or a mansion.

Chasing online training courses and shiny software is a common thing in the internet marketing niche. It’s referred to as “shiny object syndrome” and has caused more than 80% of failures in new starters. People have the plan laid out but get distracted by the distractions.

I should know I spent more than $50k chasing knowledge and on scammy sales pages trying to make this online thing work. I caught on pretty quick to what was real and what was pure sales page hype.

I actually did make a sheet tonne of money from promoting one of his affiliate programs. I was promoting Gold stocks. Check it out real classic internet marketer type stuff. But it actually works and paid for a lot of stuff. Thanks Rich Jerk.

Let me introduce the original Rich Jerk below.

The Backstory

What Do I Actually Do If I’m Not Wearing Silk Robes?

When I started working online I was super green and a complete noob. When I look back it is easy to see why these internet marketing gurus target the new guys.
I was a noobie but I knew business and how to manage a business like a well-oiled machine.
As I got involved in internet marketing I had just sold one of my largest businesses and was retired at 34 for all of 3 months before I was bored senseless and missing some drive and challenge in life.
What life had become:
  • Waking up at noon
  • Wearing the same clothes for 3 days
  • All-night gaming sessions
  • Going to cafe catchups with anyone that was available
  • Endless gardening  because I had no other goals in life
I began searching around learning how I could help people who had online businesses. I’m pretty tech savvy and I learn fast the perfect skillset for building online assets and working with others to get similar results.

I started a freelancing business and quickly built up a client portfolio and a great network of existing agencies that I would provide consulting for. I was working with the likes of 🌯 Subway, 🍕 Dominos Pizza, Papa John’s and 🏀 EastBay as freelance clients wow man where could this digital thing take me I thought??? The sky is the limit.

This exposed me to a new career path and direction. What it allowed me to do was build my digital agency portfolio AND build my affiliate marketing assets at the same time. This was pure genius, why didn’t I do this sooner?

I love affiliate niche marketing, and I’ll show you how you can reproduce my success step by step. I share the process I take, my templates, guides and S.O.P (standard operating procedures) for how to harness this tactic to build reoccurring income month on month.

I enjoy Agency work not quite as much as Affiliate marketing but I do really enjoy the challenge and the volume of diversity of clients and websites that need help. The learning curve is steep and life moves REALLY FAST! Im an introvert at heart and being client-facing is something I don’t really enjoy but I do enjoy having business owner-to-business-owner conversations because you can move mountains by speaking to a business owner on the same level.

Plus when clients pay invoices its all happy days 😃.

Why Give Me Your Attention?

I started this Click Bucks blog to get my pent-up creativity out and to try and help more people change their lives. I really believe in the power of online marketing and building the life that you want.

The world has changed and so has how we do business.

Everyone is online and you should be as well.

My goal is to help people take control of their finances and build online businesses. It’s that simple.

I give away a lot of free stuff and I’ll promote some paid training for more advanced or focused specialised training.

The same types of training I charge marketing agencies Thousands of $$$ for when I train their teams.

I like to create things, businesses, processes and run tests to find out how and why things work. One of the key takeaways for you is I’ll post most of these test results and process guides for a lot of the marketing strategies I do on this blog.

This is not a money grab either, I will only ask for payment if something I’m building takes up a lot of my time and it’s only fair to ask for payment when I’ve put in hours and hours of my time into something that will help others.

Most of the content, templates guides etc will be 100% Free.  This will be a help to you in starting your online business.

If I can give you any knowledge that I have amassed from my online journey and you actually use it and see success, that’s all the positive vibes I need from this blog.

I have a lot of real-life experiences and online success to share so if you want to absorb that I’ll keep creating content.

I’ve worked hard to learn a LOT of different skill sets and experimented to find the best types of online revenue-generating projects that I can really sink my teeth into.

From flipping domains to freelancing and Selling physical products I have had a lot of fingers in a lot of 🥧🥧🥧 pies.

The benefit I can provide to you is my knowledge across a lot of platforms, ad channels and techniques that drive traffic. My main job is providing training to advertising and marketing agencies showing them how to be better well well-rounded marketers. I love this and want to reach more people and share what I can with like-minded people.

💰 Pay Per Click:
I work across different pay-per-click platforms.

I’ll teach you how to use:
  • Google Ads Platform
  • Facebook & Instagram Ads
  • Pinterest Ads
  • Microsoft Bing Ads
  • YouTube Ads
My goal in working on these platforms is to drive targeted website traffic and use a smaller amount of my Ad budget. I also try to reduce the cost of the click and get higher conversions from my Ads. Nuff Said!
🛍️ E-commerce:
I spent a lot of time in China & Indonesia learning about eCommerce how the manufacturers work, the logistics process and then how to create set up and market an online store. I’ve worked with many store owners to help reduce Ad spend and increase sales and revenue.
💻 Playing Chess with Google:
I have worked in some difficult niches and niches where the only option is SEO or doing search engine optimisation to get free traffic. This is the most complex part of online marketing to understand because when you play chess with Google the rules are not clear. The rules change every month. I nerd the F out when I get into the SEO’s.
🏗️ Websites & Development:
I am not a developer or a web designer but I have made some impressive advancements to learning how to do this better than I did the previous day. Learning how to build my own sites and calculators has helped me generate a LOT of money 💰💰💰.

This is not a resume. I do a lot and I get results. I also give away WAY more than I should more often than I should haha but that’s cool because we are on the same journey now.

In short, I like to help people, I want to teach people and I love getting paid to work online.

See you online!
