About BethTerrell
Joined June 2016
I'm a mystery writer (under the pen name Jaden Terrell), freelance writer, content/developmental editor, and writing coach.

A former special education teacher, I'm passionate about animals (my husband and I have 3 dogs, 2 African Grey parrots and 2 special needs horses), literacy & special education, and ballroom dancing, and I dabble in art, puppetry, dollmaking, and playing guitar. I'm hoping WA will subsidize my writing and support my ballroom dance habit--and, of course, allow my husband and me to live in comfort.

Your goals are very focused, which is such a great thing. They are also within your grasp if you work hard. The lessons and this community can give you a lot of answers. And in the business of affiliating those are strengths that we need. I look forward to reading about your success in the future

I missed the part where we were supposed to explain why we chose what we did.
Answer #1 is so I can comfortably take over a larger portion of our household bills, help pay off our debts, provide some luxuries, like a weekly or at least monthly massage and chiropractic treatment for my elderly horse (he's 36!), and devote more time to my writing.
Answer #2 is so I can take over the household expenses and let my husband quit his day job to pursue his love of photography and so I can afford ballroom dance lessons.
Answer #3 I already answered. I have to leave room in my schedule for writing novels. :o)

Thank you, Ali. I followed you on all three. I have to admit, technology talk usually makes my eyes glaze, but you have some interesting articles there on Google +.

Hi Beth,

Great to get to know you. I was a teacher in the past too. First an English teacher, then bit by bit I worked more and more in the field of special needs until I became a SENCo. Mind you that seems like a lifetime ago now, as I left teaching and began coaching back in 2014.

I am now committing to learning affiliate marketing and creating a new business fully online. I want to travel and explore the world with my daughters and my husband, and I love the possibilities that affiliate marketing is opening up to me.

Wishing you all the success you desire.

Thank you Beth for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created a short but informative training tutorial for all New Members that tell you what you can do here at WA and most importantly give you a link to the RULES of WA and what you cannot do here. If you have the time or wish to, please check out the rest of my training (Bottom Right Blue Button) on my profile page. I explain ways to help you build a better website, ways to make some extra $$$ with your WA training, and best practices here at WA. I also post a humorous blog on first Sunday of every month. Enjoy!

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, Vitaliy. You nailed it all right. I'm having a hard time nailing this down. Plus I have a question about domain names.

So...the niches. I have several ideas.

Idea 1: I'm a writer, so something that targets writers who want more income from their writing might be good fit. (I'm thinking of affiliate programs like Carol Tice's Freelance Writing Den and Jon Morrow's blogging course. Things like that. Or I could start there and then add goodies like handmade journals, high-end pens, Alpha-Smart, and Scrivener (if they have affiliate programs. If I do this one, should I put the affiliate links on my existing page, or send people FROM my author website to a WA page?

Idea 2: i'm working to build a platform for a project my agent and I want to pitch. It's about body acceptance and working toward health without obsessing about weight, and the topics covered include nutrition (could link to things like Thrive Market), exercise of various types, motivation & thoughtsmanship, and Fashion, Hair & Makeup. We talked about using a blog to build an audience, with, addressing one of those topics each day. I could do various affiliate projects on a site like that or pick one, like Plus Size Fashion. Same question as above.

3. I taught special education for 12 years. A site about education strategies for students with severe cognitive and adaptive disabilities could have affiliate links to companies that sell various educational products, especially those for special ed kids.

4, 5 & 6 - Horse, dog, or bird parrot) training or equipment. The affiliate part here is pretty obvious, but if you use training products and wellness products for the animal you choose, is that too broad?

And in every case, is it better to have your own hosted domain name, or is the WA suffix okay?

Sorry for the length of the missive, but thanks for the help.

That is certainly a lot of good ideas Beth! For the writing one, you could def pitch WA as an option and promote it in addition to other programs. I know about Mr. Morrow, he's great and you could use that with that with the bootcamp training here.

Regarding the other niches, it's really a matter of which one you connect with most, start with that one.

BethTerrell Premium
Thanks so much. I just thought of another, related to special ed--dyslexic studies. I think any of those are topics I would enjoy writing about, but I think either the writing or the plus size fashion might be the best fits for what I'm trying to do with the rest of my career. I think integrating with the big picture would be best. I'm going to sleep on it and decide tomorrow! Thanks again.
Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Integration with any big picture ideas comes way later in your site when you already have at least 1 niche topic down Beth, start from the niche you like best first, it'll be easier that way.

BethTerrell Premium
That confuses me a little. I know it takes a lot of time and work to get traffic to a site. If I'm going to be blogging regularly and doing social media about a topic, doesn't it make sense to choose one that fits with what I'm already doing?

Okay, I decided on one that is completely separate from anything i'm currently working on, so I can start fresh with it. It's "Children's Books and Learning." I've created the website (but will upgrade to premium and a dotcom as soon as I can afford it). I'm excited about it, since children's literature has long been a passion of mine. Thanks for the guidance.

Hey Beth, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out: (I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions Beth, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2015. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you Beth. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!

Vitaliy
