About Cheryl74
Joined April 2018
Hi, my name's Cheryl. I've been earning an income online for the past seven years, as a fiction author. As much as I enjoyed that experience I was getting burnt out and needed a new direction. Affiliate marketing seemed like the perfect opportunity for me, since it allows me to work from home and spend plenty of time with my husband, teenage son, and pampered pooch!
I have so much to learn about this business and look forward to developing relationships with other members who can hopefully guide me on this exciting new journey.

Congratulations on going Premium.

I have found the weekly webinar very useful to watch and now that you’re a premium member you can too.

One tip though… be sure the topic being covered is what you need right now otherwise it won’t be the best use of your time.

If you can’t or don’t want to attend live, there’s always the recordings. (See “Live Video Classes” under Training on the left hand menu.

Wishing you every success with your business goals for 2018.

~Mark :)

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,


Thanks so much for asking. I could use some advice about niches. My idea is for a 'Timesavers Gift Guide' where I would feature gifts for men, women, babies, kids, teens, pets, in different categories, as well as gift ideas for different occasions: birthday, Christmas, Valentine's Day, etc.
When I did the keyword search most came back in the 'normal' range while a couple were 'poor', like gift ideas, and others were great, like 'unique gifts for teens'. I don't want to pigeon hole myself by going too narrow at first, as I'd like to provide good gift ideas for all of these sub-categories.
What do you suggest for me, moving forward? It seems the website I'm interested in, www.timesavergiftguide.com is available, but is my idea too broad?
I'd really appreciate your input before I move forward. Thanks again.

Cheryl

Honestly Cheryl, I think that your niche that you have chosen is far too broad. I recommend that you narrow this down slightly and to do this I would recommend trying out the Alphabet Soup Technique.

Here is a short training video on this: I use this not just for keywords, but also to narrow down my niches into something more specific. Remember also, there are TWO BILLION people on the Internet. Even some of the seemingly smallest niches out there have huge audiences that are searching for help with them and buying products within them.

Also, I recently blogged about what is too broad of a niche and how to define what is a suitable niche (with some real examples). I absolutely recommend that you check this out as it is going to definitely help you here Cheryl. If you want to run any of your "narrowed down" niches by me, please do let me know and I will be more than happy to give you a hand Cheryl. :)

Sorry Kyle, one more question. I took your advice and tried to narrow it down more. Targeting men who are looking for gifts for women led me to a bunch of different keywords that had a KQI in the 'great' range, but do I have to choose just one keyword combination to try and rank in, meaning I have to get really specific? For example: anniversary gifts for her, Valentine's gifts for her, Christmas gifts for her, unique gifts for women, best gifts for women, and birthday gifts for women were all within the 'great range' but do I have to choose just one of those?
Thanks so much for your help! One I figure out this part I'll be well on my way. :)

Don't worry about keywords when choosing your niche, there are going to be 1,000's of different keywords that you are going to be able target. You could target gifts for women and then on that site, you could break down into different categories. That would be fine.

Perfect! Thanks for clearing that up for me, Kyle.
