About AnnaHolburn
Joined June 2018
My goal is to be able to control my own destiny!

I'm based in the UK. My day job is being a Secretary/PA. I have a BA Honours Degree in Business Studies and I have a good level of IT skills. I am also artistic and up till now have used the internet to explore and express my creativity.

I want more freedom and flexibility. In my day job I currently work 40 hours + per week. I want to escape from the stress of office politics and work place bullying. I want to achieve a good work/life balance, and to be able to go outdoors into the sunshine if I want, rather than being stuck in an office all day.

Hey Anna! Just wanted to follow up and see how you're doing so far. Hope you've been enjoying the training offered here and the community as well.

You must be wondering if you can really make money after going through the courses here in WA. Truthfully, it can be done because I have experimented it and I know it works.

Just wanted to let you know that if you have upgraded to the premium membership, it covers the full spectrum of training, there will not be any further products that you "need" to purchase within the members area. This is unlike any programs out there.

Personally, I feel that the WA course is the best stepping stone for any one who wants to start an online business. You will be a seasoned affiliate marketer after going through the entire WA course.

See what the premium membership offers:


Let me know if you have any questions or need a hand with anything! I will be more than happy to help you out to build a successful future for you.

Thanks for the follow Anna, welcome to this fabulous WA family, I am sure that you will enjoy the friendship and the training. Not to mention the reduction in your working hours.
JackCao Premium
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, thanks for the offer of guidance. I was considering indoor fountains as a niche. I'm interested in interior design/home decor. What do you think?
JackCao Premium
Hi Anna,

Personally, I think this is a good niche, but do not take my word for it as I am not an expert in your niche.

Let the numbers tell...

Here's a set of guidelines so that you can identify if your niche is a good niche.

To identify a good niche, there are basically 3 steps:

1. A good amount of people (traffic) interested in your niche.

You may want to use the Jaaxy keyword tool to check if there are many people interested in your intended niche. You can do that by thinking of some general keywords and typing them in the Jaaxy keyword tool. Generally, you do not want to enter a Niche that nobody is interested in.

2. Have the right type of affiliate products to promote

To be successful with affiliate marketing (to earn a full time income month in month out), you'll have to promote either of the following categories of products:

- Affiliate programs that have continuity and awards you with recurring commissions (e.g. membership sites);
- Affiliate programs that have high ticket products and rewards you with high commissions.

So, if your niche has affiliate products that I've mentioned, it will pass this test.

To identify the possible affiliate products that you can promote, you can search on Google by typing "Your selected Niche + Affiliate Programs", or you can find out from other successful websites in your niche (see what they are promoting). I am sure you will come across some successful affiliates' websites when you are doing your first test above.

3. The more competitors in your niche, the better!

It means that your niche is profitable. Don't worry about competition because you will learn how to beat them as you move along with the lessons.

I am sure at this step, you already have some clues as to who are your competitors in your niche. If you can identify at least 5 to 10 successful affiliates' sites, your niche passes this test.

Hope this helps! Feel free to share your findings with me.

Hi Jack, Thanks again for the advice. I checked out affiliate programs for the indoor fountains and I found one that looks good 'Serenity Health & Homes' who offer 10% commission. I don't think I have access to the Jaaxy keyword tool at this stage? I looked at Google AddWord instead and noted that indoor fountains was rated 1600. I'm not sure how this will go, but I've now started my first website. Regards, Anna
JackCao Premium
I think it shows there are people interested in the products of the niche. It's a go ahead.

Looking forward to see your site soon.

Thanks for following me, Anna.

Welcome to the WA family. Success can be found here by following simple directions in the lessons.

I'm also new to WA. I went Premium May 4 (Joined April 22). I'm here at WA to learn how to supplement my fixed income.

If you enjoy the WA community, look into Premium as soon as you can. I hear there is a lot more interaction at this level. I went Yearly June 1 since I saved up this past May (using my birthday money and savings from tax refund and book sales on eBay). The benefits will be sweet now that I'm dedicated to WA for a year.

All the best,

JackCao Premium

I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started.

Before you start making money, there are just three things you need to know.

1) Those who ask questions interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

2) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Click on the green "Get Started Here" button.
