About AlisaK
Joined December 2015
Hi there, my name is Alisa. I live in beautiful Penticton, British Columbia, Canada with my husband and our three children. I have been a stay at home Mom for 13 years. We have three amazing, spectacular children ages 13, 7 and 6. Before we had children I was a Financial Advisor for 11 years and loved it. I grew up in a family environment where entrepreneurialism was practiced. My parents always had a business of their own and made their paycheck as needed. When my husband and I had our first child my heart melted and I just wanted to be there for all the special moments in her life. I didn't think that I would ever leave my career of Financial Planning at the time. I loved helping people with all facets of their financial life and felt blessed that I could help people. But I loved being at home with our first daughter so my husband and I decided that the financial sacrifice was worth it and I would retire from my business and stay home with our daughter. I did try businesses that were stay at home type opportunities but never quite had the right feeling about them.We were later blessed with two more children a daughter and a son. So I am very busy raising them. We have horses and they are involved in several activities which keeps me escorting them to different things. I have always worked for myself and would love to be able to earn a wealthy living online helping others to do the same and be with their families too. I am fascinated with the power of the internet and I have an optimistic view of succeeding online. I am extremely grateful to have come across this website. So I will jump right in to the premium membership and enjoy the new journey!! I am hoping to find guidance on which niche and direction to go since I am interested and passionate about many things including horses, finances, wealth, success and families being together. I wish you all God's amazing blessings in your lives and businesses!!

Hi Louie,
Nice to meet you too!! I joined WA in December and I am bit embarrassed to say I have my website name but have yet to post content. I am trying to see it is even a good idea to pursue the three areas of interest in my website named horsefamilywealth.com

I am a bit frozen and uncertain as to what gifts and information I can share or even help people with. Obviously we are all here to earn a living and I just would love to contribute to our household income. But it seems like it is quite difficult to pick a niche, write great content then find a product to sell that will help monetize an idea. I guess you could say I am pretty overwhelmed and not sure where to turn or what to do next. I will definitely check out your training and blog. Thank you for the warm welcome. This community is very genuine and caring. Alisa

Alisa, try reading this quick training to see if it helps you with choosing a niche or better understanding how to do it: You can also follow the Public Niche Site Project on my blog to see how I go about each and every step from start to finish with building a niche website and making it profitable.

As for your fears, my best advice is: try to stop thinking about what's stucking you. Just take action and start doing something- Don't mind if it's good or bad. Even if you make mistakes you're already learning. As they say, even if you fall at least you moved a step forward. That's 1000% better than not moving at all.

Besides, visitors search for blogs to find real people like them and with whom they can relate to. They want genuine stuff (with errors and personal opinions included), not something created by machines or big companies.

You are awesome. Thank you so much.

I missed seeing this a few days ago so I apologize for not responding sooner. I will be checking out your training. Sometimes I am striving to get it so perfect that I don't accomplish anything. I am jumping in:) I will also see the above you posted about What is a Niche Website.
Thank you again Louie, Alisa

My pleasure Alisa!

"Sometimes I am striving to get it so perfect that I don't accomplish anything." I totally get what you feel, I'm just like that!

We need to learn to see accomplishing and finishing things as perfection too.

Yes indeed. I am so eager to get things going and to become successful that I am also drifting to other sites or opportunities only to find out that I need to just stay here and be patient. Thanks again and I will be reading your training today. I am sure I may have questions for you or opinions. Thanks again, Alisa

Great Training Louie, It was simple to understand and follow. May I ask your opinion? I registered and named my website horsefamilywealth.com I wanted to do this so I could branch out in the future and possibly cover those topics, but for now I can either choose a niche idea that is, how to buy the right safe horse, or a review of online opportunities and training, or ways to keep sane being a busy mom with three children, several activities, horses ,animals , home and life? I just cant seem to decide in which ways to help people with the knowledge and advice I have. I know our first goal is to help people by solving their problems but how would I eventually pick a product that would help people for instance buy the right horse? I don't think there are affiliate programs that are linked to that? Sorry, I hope this isn't going off track, I just am a bit confused how to go about a blog, affiliate program or advice for people. Alisa

Hi there Alisa. :)

With that kind of domain name people tend to think it's a website about horses or something related to a (wealthy) family that owns those beautiful animals, in my humble opinion.

I would keep myself on topic:
A site about horses publishes content about that.

All the other topics you referred do not relate to that.
I wouldn't feel comfortable searching online for a blog about horses and finding content about something else like online opportunities, busy moms and other unrelated stuff. (I wouldn't read that unrelated content and would probably leave the website without even reading what I was looking for.)

Niche websites are aimed to be laser-focused on a niche (topic / subject / theme). Their goal is to bring in an audience that is interested in that topic ONLY. That's what they came in looking for.

Think about it: when you go to the pet store you don't expect to find groceries or finance books selling there, right?

I don't know if there are affiliate programs about horses, but:
a) There may be some books you can review and promote.
b) Maybe there are horse events that you can promote too in exchange for some monetary compensation.
c) After your site gets big you can get in touch with horse riding schools and ask if they want to advertise their services on your site.
d) You can write an ebook about your site's topic and sell it there and / or Amazon.
f) And you can even put some AdSense ads on your website to earn some income when a visitor clicks on them. (I don't usually have AdSense ads on a website that promote affiliate products.)

As far as the other niche ideas you have, don't put everything in the same bag. Build a different website for each of those ideas.

Hope this helps,
Louie

Thank you Louie. Best advice I have received and related to since starting. Time to do more keyword research on Jaazy then become laser focused on one niche idea, one niche website and then content building around that one topic only. Thank you again, very helpful. Alisa

Hi Louie,
I love your website. I have been studying it and doing some of the exercises that you recommend when doing niche research.I really like the "look around you" exercise. It is helpful and intriguing. I have been struggling with a migraine for a few days so haven't been around here but enjoying your link that you sent above. I will check in shortly. Alisa

LouieLuc Premium
Thanks Alisa! If you're struggling to find a niche, try a different thing: find the right audience. Meaning a group of people with an interest (problem, question) you used to have for instance, or something you're comfortable with and can help people out.
Reply
AlisaK Premium
Good advice Louie.

For me the struggle is actually deciding what I can help people with and what I am most passionate about.Also being able to link the two (my passion and niche or knowledge)and find a way to help people and earn an income. I think if I focus on the financial area shouldn't I be already financially successful if I were to give advice?? This is my struggle. I go back and forth which area and niche to focus on and then how can I help people if I am not totally where I want to be.. We have all had issues with our finances and many still to this day have problems. That is part of the reason most of us are on this site or struggling to find a way to earn an income online. I just cant figure out how "I " can make a difference and share wisdom that actually makes a difference in peoples lives. ARRRGGG. Sorry, I don't want to give up I just feel like so much time has passed by as I am learning and frozen that will it be worthwhile to get it going. Thanks again for reading and helping. It truly makes a difference. Alisa

Alisa, people visiting niche websites (which are mainly informational sites about a specific topic) are looking for advices from REAL people (I really need to capitalize that), not experts or gurus.

They want to read, listen or watch people they can relate too, people whose life stories resonate with theirs, not unreachable rock stars.

Let's say you have a niche site about late night snacks and I wanted some healthy recipes for tonight. I wouldn't be expecting to read from a world-wide known and famous chef. I would like to read from someone that I could see as more like a friend, someone that also needed to eat healthy mid-night snacks one time and learned some cool tricks and tips that now wants to share to the World. Just that!

The same goes for a financial niche site. You already know more from just being here in WA than someone else who doesn't even know that WA exists or that there is such a thing as making money online. You already have some good advices to offer.

My advice: start, take action, everything will make more sense and become clearer as you go. If you fail, or realize you're in the wrong niche, fine! You're just learned a new thing that you'll avoid next time.

As they say: if you fall, at least you moved one step forward. That's 1000% better than not moving at all.

Louie

Alisa: Thank you so much for your follow. I appreciate it very much and welcome to my network of fabulous WAers. My network is about two things. First, I encourage every follower to regularly post a blog with WORTHY content to other WAers. Obviously, if you blog once a day your ranking will quickly move up in WA. However, please understand that I only blog approximately once every two weeks and in the back of my mind I am only blogging to my followers in an attempt to provide the best example (of my writing skills) to you that I can. Why? Your website will only be successful if you post quality pieces to it.
Second, I try to help my followers every time they run into a snag with their websites to the best of my ability. If that is not good enough, I will refer you to other HELPERS at WA that will definitely be able to help you. So an open invitation: If you run into a problem here at WA, please let me try to assist you.
Please remember that Kyle, Carson, me and you are not WA. WA is the thousands of students learning the concepts of e-commerce and the hundreds of WAers that learn to blog regularly for the delight of the community as they attempt to hone their various writing skills. Welcome! DAN

Good afternoon to you Alisa my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I have been blessed by WA in so many ways. I struggled online after losing my wife and WA helped me recover my sanity and give birth to my new life. So too with you, WA can help you create a legacy for your family, become debt-free and give like no one else. So many opportunities to learn and to master. The best part about WA is the community. They are the "secret sauce" of online success.
I look forward to watching you grow and I will be following you back. I wish you much success in reaching your goals and finding prosperity in 2016.
