Hi everyone,

I'm also what you call a "newbee", to the exciting business of internet/affiliate marketing. I've been searching for months now, for a system or person who is honest and really interested in helping those of us who want to know and learn this business but may not have the finances to go full throttle. I hope that in a short amount of time I'll be earning some pretty good residual income to supplement so I can retire from my regular 9-5 job and be available to go and do for my grandkids, which I can't really do at the moment…that would be a blessing!

So, I'm excited about starting and I'm looking forward to all the instruction and feedback that I can possibly absorb to help me reach my goal.

I'd like to thank everyone in advance for all your help because I'm gonna need it!…:0)

Money Goals
These are my goals; I want to make between $1000 to $2000 per month by the end of April 2015 and would be ecstatic if I made more than that and consider myself truly blessed. To this a reality, I plan on spending at lease a couple of hours per night, as long as time permits with my day job and my budget.

Hey there Carol

These are great goals and they are more than achievable! The more time you can spend on learning here within the Community at Wealthy Affiliate the better, but we've built WA so that you can work at your own pace!

I know that you are going to do great!

Kyle, trying to find my niche and I think I found it but need some help. It's "everything toddler". Do you think this is too broad?

Honestly Carol, 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:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/alphabet-soup-technique-using-google-instant-to-find-keywords

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 Carol.

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 Carol. :)

Kyle, thank you so much for the advise. I guess I'm thinking broad because I'd ultimately like to open an online affiliate store under the same name; "Everything Home" or "Everything Toddler". Maybe that's why I'm can't see past my hand. Anyway, I'll checkout the links you provided and get back it choosing the right niche so I can move forward and finaly get my website built. Thanks again for your help...

Everything toddler could cover everything from "learning devices" to "diapers" to "car seats", all huge niches. I would narrow it down to an aspect of toddlers that you want to target.

Trying to cover all of them will lead you to being very overwhelmed and lackluster site because you will be unable to cover everything unless you have a team of 20 people to help you build out your website.

Don't worry, we were all newbies at one point along the way Carol. You are going to get the hang of this and as you move through the training, things are really going to start to fall in place for you. :)

I look forward to working with you and simply drop me a reply if you ever need a hand with anything.

Kyle, I was still at work and missed your "Step by Step" webinar that was today at 3:30 pst. Was this recorded and if so where do I go to watch it? Thanks for your help!

The live classes are Premium only training resources and they are run once per week. They are recorded and the classes are posted after the fact (there are 100's of hours of live classes you have access to as a Premium member).

Hope this clarifies for you Carol. :)
