About Actionpaint
Joined June 2020
I am an artist - painter of abstract expressionist paintings (check out my paintings at www. anjastemmer. com if you are curious). I am living and working in Munich, Bavaria, Germany - which is an expensive place to live... . During Covid times I am facing difficulties to find work within my typical sort of a "day-job" to accompany my artistic practice. I am educated in physics, personality is curious, playful and willing to test, committed to implement and well, we'll see if and how affiliate marketing can help me start leading an even more self-directed life.

Hey Anja, I just wanted to check in and see if you had any questions about what you've seen so far. A lot of people get information overload in the first couple days!

If you are having trouble setting up your website, just let me know.

One cool thing I wanted to share with you is PROOF that Wealthy Affiliate members are earning money. And I'm not talking pocket change. I'm talking BIG money. John earned $6,582.97 from one commission, in one day. Amazing, right?

Finding affiliate programs is part of your training here at Wealthy Affiliate, but you need a website in order to apply for affiliate programs.

Here's a shortcut link to the training: You can start your training if you haven't already, or you can continue from where you left off.

Hi Nathaniell,
I am still stuck at finding/defining my niche (send two posts to you under the top left "contact Nathaniell" button.
I wonder how I can check my niche ideas against the question "are there existing affiliate programs for this topic/ within this niche" - of it is easy to convince merchants and academies to set up their affiliate program (the merchant part of it) on an affiliate platform.

It's interestin - I raised several questions about possible niches in PM - an none of the promised answers ever came in.

Was it me you contacted via PM? I checked my messages, and didn't see any from you.

Finding a good niche is a big challenge for a lot of people, but I'll share my process with you, and I think it'll help you pick a good one. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely shouldn't worry too much if your niche is profitable or not.

You can brainstorm some products you might want to promote by searching in Google or Amazon, but in my opinion, there are more important things to consider! As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not, "what is going to make money?", but instead, "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?

What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?

What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. They get a good product. The seller makes a sale. You earn a commission.

If you really can't think of anything based on that information, I just try to pick something that I find interesting. You'll be doing a lot of research and writing on the topic you choose for your site, so make it about something you'll enjoy writing and learning about.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

So what are you thinking - does that spark any ideas for you?

When I started my Wealthy Affiliate training in 2010, I had no idea what I would make my website about. I felt like I didn't have any special knowledge to teach, and I didn't really have any specific hobbies.

It was very frustrating.

What I really wish someone would have told me back then is that any website can make money.

Literally ANYTHING.

I have some crazy examples from my past that actually made money, including coffee enemas and ankle rehab treatment: Actually, Jay (the webinar guy), has built some weird sites that make money too. Here are some awesome case studies to check out, including hummingbird feeders, standing desks, and fitness watches: Are you having any trouble thinking of an idea for your website topic?

Just let me know and I can help out.
