About Craig48b
Joined May 2016
I am a disabled, Vietnam veteran who is 67 years old and lives in Spokane, WA. My parents have been dead for decades and I have never married nor had any children. A retirement and assisted facility named Maplewood Gardens is where I am a resident. The price I am paying from my VA Compensation and Social Security Income is far too high for the size of the room I live in and the extremely poor food I am served. Trouble is, I would need anywhere from $2,000. 00 to $2,500 to move into a one-bedroom apartment in Spokane. That total includes a non-refundable pet deposit for my black, male cat named "Rascal."

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! :)

Why hasn't my Rank been boosted? It is exactly the same as it was before I joined as a Premium Member. Please correct or at least tell me why this happened and thank you.
Alan Hocking Premium
Hi Craig

The rank only updates once a day at a specific time every day so you should see it change by tomorrow.

You will also see it steadily climb as you continue to post blogs and become more active in the community.

Looking forward to catching you in the live chat some day!

Al :)

Premium doesn't boost rank, interacting here, helping others, and taking part in discussions does. So do things like building websites, content, etc. All have a bearing on your ranking here at WA.
Alan Hocking Premium
Hi Craig

Just dropping by to see how you're getting on and ask if you need my help with anything?

There's a lot of information to take in so if you're struggling with anything drop by my profile and let me know.

I am more than happy to help you with anything I can so please don't be afraid to ask.

Catch up again soon.

Alan :)

It is solid advice to start your internet marketing business with yourself. That is, what are your personal strengths and weaknesses? What are your personal character traits and motivates you? Next, what is the product or service you want to bring to the marketplace online? What are the features and benefits your product/service have? Most importantly, what specific problem can you offer a solution for to your potential customers?

Now go on to research your target market (niche) carefully. How large is the market your niche is in? What is the level of competition in your target market? What is the profit potential the niche offers you? Finally, and this step cannot be skipped, what is the buyer persona or avatar of your ideal customer? Be sure to include demographic, psychographic, and behavioral details.

The more carefully and thoroughly you do your research, the more you better your chances of succeeding online.

You've certainly done your homework Craig!

I think you are going to be a great help to the community here as you settle in and start sharing your knowledge

Hi Craig and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

You're going to love it here!

The Wealthy Affiliate Community is very lively and there's a great bunch of very friendly people hanging out here with an enormous amount of knowledge and experience in building successful online businesses and they are always willing to lend a hand to anybody who needs some help so if you get stuck with anything don't be afraid to ask questions.

The best place to get started is here: If you do have any questions you can drop by my profile here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/alan-hocking and leave me a message, or use the "Live Chat" where you will get answers very quickly.

I'm on there most days! :)

You can also ask questions within discussions, tutorials, blogs, or directly to other members on their profiles.

As you can see there is no shortage of help and support here at WA!

Remember to complete your profile by adding a picture and telling me a little bit about yourself so that I can work out the best way to help you move forward and achieve your goals.

There's a video to walk you through it here: JUST A QUICK REMINDER!

I know you're going to love building your free websites and being a part of the Wealthy Affiliate Community and I just wanted to remind you that you can stay on your free membership for as long as you like and there will never be any pressure for you to upgrade to a premium membership but I'd also like to remind you that you do have the opportunity to try out the full premium membership as well without breaking the bank!

If you do decide to try out the premium membership in the next seven days you will get the first month for just $19

That's a massive 59% discount on the normal price of $47 (There should be a timer set at the top of the page showing how much time you have left to claim your discount!)

For now though just have a good look around and enjoy yourself!

Let me know if I can help you out with anything else and I'll touch base with you again in a couple of days to see how you're getting on.

Alan Roy Hocking :)
