Update: 3 April 2018
A month into WA and I am proud to announce I have gone Premium Yearly and have launched my first website. The first 30 days has been an interesting journey filled with learning experiences and also the challenge of staying motivated.

Glad to now embark on the next 365 days of online learning to start making some serious $$$...

* * * * * *

New to affiliate marketing and I'm looking to create a freedom lifestyle so as to enjoy what I do day-to-day. Have been in the corporate rat-race for over 30 years and have lost precious moments not seeing my kids grow up. Now that the are way past their teens, I am looking to build an online business that can give me the opportunity to get to know and love them as a father and friend.

Avid fan of kayak fishing! That's likely my niche ; )

Hey Carol, I just reread you message! I love to tease as well, keeps the juices going and the spirit up! I am struggling getting started, right now hung up trying to find a niche! Have found a niche for yourself! If so how did you go about it?

Hi, Charles. When Kyle said to think about things we're passionate about, I thought about ballroom dancing, pet therapy, quilting, reading, and making people laugh.

I decided on ballroom dancing because I wanted to build a site where dancers on vacation and unfamiliar with the city could find a place to go dancing.

My ex and I had the experience of wanting to dance, but being unable to find a place in a strange city, and I thought that might be a service people would be looking for.

I asked Kyle, Carson, and Ian for their opinions, and they all said they thought it was a good one.

I think I was lucky because I hit on a good one first try, but I know a lot of newbies do struggle to find a niche that they feel strongly about.

My website has evolved from my original idea to a lot of other things dancers might be looking for as well. I have not learned how to make a bulletin board where ballrooms, dance instructors, and dance clubs can post their dances yet.

Good luck. Let me know what you come up with.

Carol

Hello Charles and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.

You must keep up with the training and keep referring to it but if you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 400+ blogs I have published within WA.

You can always get in touch with me as well.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Have a great day.
Robert

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! :)

Howdy from Austin Texas! I am ever so glad to hear from you! I have hit a road block when it comes to finding a niche! My Background, Education and Experience had been in Agriculture and Agricultural Sciences, which don't seem to lend themselves to lucrative niches! I am interested in all things around me however. I would be ever so appreciative if you could give me guidance for locating an appropriate niche!
I am looking forward to hearing and advice you could give me! Charles

Hey Charles! 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.

Cheers!
