About ClaireF
Joined May 2017
I am new to internet marketing, however I do already own one website selling Cruelty Free Cosmetics; my website is linked to eBay and Facebook and I sell my products there mainly. However, the last few months have been a massive learning curve for me and I am feeling quite overwhelmed. I also want to branch out and create multiple income streams. I sometimes think I'm being overly ambitious, lol. Whatever I do though, I certainly need help as it's all getting a bit complex and much of it is completely new to me.

I am a 55 year-old grandmother of 6, and I live with one of my daughters and her family. I have a perfect canine companion, Jess, and I am disabled. I have a degree in Creative Writing and English Language and have been studying an MA in Creative Writing - I have just completed my PgDip Degree, and after all that I realised that in today's market, it is unlikely that I will find work (who wants an aging, disabled employee?).

Before suffering the stroke that left me disabled, I spent 20 years or so in the Entertainment Industry. My main role was as a professional acting coach and casting director; although I have also acted, directed, written plays and screenplays, and produced plays. I live in the Midlands in the UK.

Anyway, with things in the UK as they stand currently, even the disability benefits are being eroded. I want to work, I need something to occupy me, if nothing else, but finishing my MA has become difficult with University Fees going up so I also needed to raise funds. In the end, I decided that I needed to create my own work and generate my own income. With my limitations, I decided the best way would be to work online as I could work how I like, when I like (or when I can), and during whatever hours I choose.

So far, I am enjoying my journey, despite it being quite a confusing minefield, and despite all the mistakes I have already made; and looking forward to learning how to make the journey a little bit easier.

Thanks for following me. much appreciated.

Do you mind if I bounce a concept off of you?

I've been working on a project for affiliate marketers for a while now. I would appreciate your thoughts if you have the time.

Every now and then I would like to get the opinion of a wide variety of affiliate marketers, like a sanity check.

Would you mind if I share it with you?

Thanks
Dale

Claire, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Claire.

Thanks for the lovely welcome and the advice,

As always, everyone is so welcoming here and I know I've come to the right place.

Already making many new friends and trying to help (probably getting way more than I can give right now, but hey!).

Have my first website up, albeit with only the Privacy Policy, About Me, and Starting Out pages - but it's all coming along, so far so good!

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! :)

Well, yes and no. I understand the 'niche' concept, and have had several ideas from staffordshire bull terriers (my love of dogs), to motorcycle helmets (random, lol). There is the field I used to work in, so something to do with acting or entertainment, or even something to do with disability (having first hand experience). In some ways, I can think of tooo many!

But, I am now looking at the Boot Camp, mainly because, over the years, I have considered blogs, books, articles etc on subjects such as 'Change Your Life', 'How to get out of debt', Making Money Online', 'Positive Thinking', etc. I considered Public Speaking combined with Books many times over the years because, a) I have an interest in Self-Improvement on many levels, and b) I have spent most of my life in a Mentor/Life Coach/Wise Woman/Teacher/Coach/Confident and General Sorter-Outer of Everything for just about everyone I know - all unpaid!

So, the Affiliate Bootcamp appeals to me because it kind-of fits with all that. I could incorporate it into some kind of Self-Help/Self-Improvement Niche? Perhaps, something like: Dream Big, Start Small - or - From Budget to Boss - or even simply - Tips to a Better You ?

Sorry for the long reply, kind of thinking aloud, I suppose. Thanks for your kind offer of help.

I would choose one or the other, you can be very successful either direction that you head so choose a starting point that you are most passionate about. Bootcamp will help you refine your niche when you get into the Targeted Audiences lesson.
