About Alison54
Joined August 2017
Hi, I'm Alison, British but live in Spain on the Costa Blanca. Beautiful weather but very hard to make any money here as an ex-pat. I've been doing some marketing for some British owned businesses here, but to be honest, it's not great. I'm interested in building something sustainable online - not to earn a fortune, but to do something that I'm interested in, learn new skills and make enough to keep me living here and enjoying my lifestyle.

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
My situation is this: I have a very cynical husband who is very 'anti' MLM and affiliate marketing because all of the people he knows that do it (about 3!) haven't made any money out of it. I got really excited about Empower Network and went to their conference in San Diego (on my own) about 6 years ago, but my husband didn't 'buy into it' and it was difficult to do anything when you're constantly faced with negativity. I've registered with you before and started going through the course, but again, I veered off track with my husband's cynicism. So, I've decided not to tell him this time!

I have been pondering all day about a niche that I may be interested in and I'm thinking that 50 year old + women and how to keep well whilst getting older. Problems with going through the menopause (there's not much online info wise), nutrition, fitness, health markers (BP, cholesterol, etc), fashion for different shapes, dealing with lack of motivation.

Do you think it's a bit too broad a niche? Would really welcome your opinion!

I can appreciate any apprehension by her husband. The fact that he thought you were getting in a something wrong when you joined empower with probably some good intuition there. As you are probably aware they are now out of business and a lot of people are out a lot of money.

This is not multilevel marketing and we are the most comprehensive and cost-efficient platform in the world for learning affiliate marketing and Internet business. And we truly care about you and your success moving forward and this is going to shine through at every stage.


I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "aging" do you want to help people out with? I think there're a lot of different niche is within his overall topic that you can help people with. You have mentioned many of them and you don't want to target them all.

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. :)

Wow! I didn't expect a reply, Kyle, so I'm very impressed! Anyway, I've had another thought about what I actually love - and, sad as I am, I love camping with my dog! So I mooched around online this afternoon and came across Nathaniell's blog post about niches on this subject and sub niches, so I'm thinking now that this could well be my niche. I'd love it! What do you think?
I've looked at affiliate sites and there's quite a few and Nathaniell's blog post has given me some ideas for sub niches.

Didn't know that Empower Network had gone off the scene, but to be honest, after San Diego, I lost faith myself!

I am really interested in learning about affiliate marketing and earning some income to support me here. How many hours and how long do you think it usually takes to start making any sort of income from it? Big question, I know, but what %age of people really do earn an income - even if it's just $500 per month? Would be really interesting to know.....

Thanks once again for getting back to me - I don't think it will be too long before I upgrade!!

Kind regards

Alison
PS - I've just burnt my onions whilst writing this - I must be VERY excited!! Ha Ha!

Anyone that wants to earn five hundred per month can. Anyone that wants to earn $10,000 per month can. We are talking about the Internet here and there are 3.7 billion people online actively spending money each day on Internet. There is never been an opportunity like this.

Everybody earns money at a different rate, so it really depends on the person. I have actually created a discussion on this that will put things into perspective for you here: Have a read of that, I know it will give you a lot of insight into this exact topic. ;)

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months. I would not be where I am at today. Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist. Amazing things can and will happen!

Hi Alison,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! Great to have you on board :)

You'll probably experience a bit of information overload in the first few days. There is a lot of training and resources in here.

I suggest you start with the Online Entrepreneur Certification. See the green "Get Started Here" option on the main navigation ;)

If you would ever get stuck, let me know. I'm here to help!

Cheers,
Ronnie
