About Clorpurt
Joined December 2016
I have been in the IT business for 20 plus years, I've done everything from fixing computers and networking to programming to IT Director for various local government. Now I would like to supplement my income and make life a little more comfortable.
At the same time, I have a few hobbies that I would like to help promote and maybe get people more interested in. First and foremost would be science, I think nowadays people take too much for granted and don't care about how things work, just that it, is what it is, so to speak. Hopefully, I can peak a few interest and hopefully spread just how cool it can be.

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! :)

Kyle,
Things seem to be going good, site got indexed by google so now just got to fill in some more content. My first site is about working from home with WA as the feature but also including authoring site, surveys, and avoiding scams.
On the niche side however I would like to know what you think of this. I want to create a site that focuses on science for the amateur, mainly physics, astronomy, and chemistry and using Amazon's affiliate program for science toys and kits.

I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "physics/chemistry/astronomy/etc" do you want to help people out with?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Awesome, thanks for the reply and recommendation. I will work on narrowing that down.

No problem at all Chris, I absolutely look forward to working with you and seeing you progress in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead.

I am connected to WA throughout the day, so if you ever have any questions let me know. I am always around! :)

I would like your opinion on a domain name, I wouldn't bother you with this except it is a buy and stuck with deal I want to get it right. I'm going to be building a new site around astronomy specifically telescopes and backyard astronomy how to's. My domain idea is "centralfloridaastronomy" or should I abbreviate Florida and make it "centralflastronomy"?
Your thoughts are much appreciated.
Thanks,
Chris

Those are OK, I wouldn't tie yourself to a specific location though unless that is the only demographic you want to target with your niche.

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

PS. You can host up to 25 of your own domains here within the Premium membership on our state of the art hosting platform. :)

Thanks, I didn't even think about it being tied down to a specific location.

Thanks again for the advice and the link, I ended up picking "backyardstargazing.com" I think that will cover my niche and audience perfectly.

Excellent, I like it and I think that is very brandable. Keep me updated with your progress moving forward Chris. :)

Chris, 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 Chris.

How are things going Chris? I see that you have completed your account setup. This will result in a lot of new friend requests from other members of Wealthy Affiliate. That means your network is going to get bigger.

Having a large network is crucial when you are starting out with an Internet Marketing career. It allows you to ask questions as they arise. Don't be shy about asking a lot of questions! Everyone has gotten stuck at some point or another, so you'll find the members here are always willing to help (because they were once beginners too).

Always feel free to contact me directly if you need any help.

So you're here to learn how to make money, right? First things first, make sure you start by checking out the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started" course (Level 1). This is a task based step by step guide that will walk you through setting up your online business. Something you'll soon learn about the community here is there are tons of helpful people always willing to lend a hand. Feel free to dive in and ask any questions within the community you may have. Those that interact are more likely to succeed.
