About AlanP1
Joined November 2016
I'm a 72 year old retired Financial Advisor, who is the proud grandfather to four boys who all live within 30 minutes drive. My passions are walking, listening to traditional jazz, visiting the theatre and drinking the odd glass of wine or pint (or two) of real ale. I am an ex Rugby Union referee and now spend my summers umpiring cricket throughout the Midlands area of the UK. I have been married to Angela for over forty five years and am now looking to supplement my income and, hopefully, establish a robust online business which, in time, could be further developed and expanded by, potentially, one of the younger members of the family!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle

I have managed to come up with not one, but two niches!
I will have to consider if they are, perhaps, a little 'broad' but at least I know the direction I will now be taking. Incidentally, I will be working on just one niche at a time as I do not want to spread my time too thinly. I feel there are exciting times ahead!

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

Good to hear from you Kyle - I've had very little time to devote to WA in the last 24 hours but I believe I've found my first niche. I just need to do some research tomorrow before, hopefully, I 'push the button'.

Awesome to hear Alan!

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Kyle - the blank is...'love walking'. I am/was an avid walker, having walked extensively in the UK and on the beautiful island of Madeira. I've also walked to a peak above Everest Base Camp 1.
My age and my cricket umpiring activities during the summer now restrict my walking and I have concerns about how best I would ultimately 'monetize' the niche. Any help and/or guidance would be very much appreciated.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks

Awesome, love it. You can definitely head in either one of these directions, choose the one you are most passionate about and move forward from there. ;)

Hi Alan, thanks for the follow back. It's great to connect with you here on this amazing platform. I see that you're into Rugby :) my partner is a fanatical rugby fan to the point where we are going to the world cup in 2019 in Japan :) Donny follows All blacks as he is maori :) Cheers, Linda

Lucky you - off to Japan for the Rugby World Cup! I see the All Blacks got their revenge against Ireland last weekend. England are steadily improving with Eddie Jones at the helm. Take care.
