About DFotinos
Joined June 2017
We all have something in common. Compassion comes to mind. Whether we have survived trauma or had a rosy childhood, life has it's moments. I have heard it all, from, "God gives you hardship because you can handle it" to "S*** happens for a reason" and I would like to embrace the latter.
For most of my life, I carried around this victim type mentality. It was after discovering other's pain that I realized there is no level of pain.
What we do with our trauma, weaknesses, and pain determines our character and I am here to invest in how we, as a species, can utilize our weaknesses.
I don't have a clue how to harness my niche or genre but with all of your support, I believe anything is possible.
Thank you to each and every one of you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to meeting all of you, especially Kyle, the genius mastermind who has done wonders for the greater good.
Kyle, I hope I can utilize this extraordinary gift so that I too can share with my beautiful family, friends, and those I have not had the pleasure of meeting.
Thank you everyone and to say that I am elated is an understatement.
Danielle

That 'One Dollar' put me in mind of Price Is Right game show, lol... But, I really do get it though. That first dollar to breakthrough opens the floodgates for steady cash, commissions and confidence. RockOn!

Thanks for the inspiration! It's nice to know someone is thinking of me or what I say besides myself!

As women, I feel there is still a very big social standard to attain an unideal perfection, cook, make babies, clean, cook some more, and look like a 1940's pin up. So overrated. I would like to see more female support and thanks to you, I am receiving. Don't spoil me. lol

It took me a long time, but I finally realized--you have to like yourself. To hell with trying to look perfect or perform on demand. If you have respect for yourself, others will also, no matter what you look like. Plain and simple. :)

Thanks for loving my honesty. I can tell you being honest is, at times, to my own detriment so I appreciate you appreciating my honesty! Redundant to say but worth it to hear, I hope.
Thanks, I am grateful for the appreciation, really

Nice work setting up your account Danielle, it's great to see you taking action and moving forward within WA!

Those that get amongst the community and follow the training see WAY more success so you are well and truly on the right track. Let me know if you need help choosing a niche or if you're stuck on something, I'm always happy to help where I can :)

Cheers,

Tim

Hi Tim,
Thanks so much. I would like to take you up on helping me with a niche. I realize without yet being a premium member, I figured I would start Affiliate Ads. I wanted to start with a key search work beginning with an A, and be as close to Amazon as a search word. Will that make a difference or can I pick any search word, ie. regardless of what it begins with.
Hope I didn't confuse you lol

Hey Danielle,

I must admit I am a little confused lol.

What do you mean by "I figured I would start Affiliate Ads"? Please clarify this.

Also, I'm not sure what you mean by "key search work beginning with an A, and be as close to Amazon as a search word"?

If you mean, you want to choose a keyword close to something like 'Amazon' then I do not recommend this at all. Reason being, this is WAY too broad for a keyword/ niche website topic. You really want to drill down and find an actual niche.

The key is to start with a passion or interest. And work from there.

For example:

Wine (too broad)
Vintage Wine (better)
vintage wine glasses (targeted niche)
vintage crystal wine glasses (very targeted niche)

This is just a quick example, there are SO many options within 'wine' alone. I picked this because I remember you run a successful winery and know your stuff! This is good.

When it comes to keywords within your domain name, this is optional. You can do this if it makes sense and it can help you rank, but it's not the be all end all either. You can have just as much success with a more 'brandable' domain name too, with little-no keywords in it.

Hope this helps!

I will have the aha moment and hopefully this will be amusing to you, much later.
I always appreciate your advice!

That's ok, I did the same thing when I first started :)

You've got the right idea. Take your time, go through each lesson and you will absolutely get there. You are more than welcome to reach out if you have any questions moving forward! Cheers

Tim,
Okay, belay my last crazy impulsive response. I am actually having way more fun engaging with the community. So, my "normal" question will be:
If I find helping the WA community and after completing the necessary training, would you advise promoting WA through the Affiliate Program and if so, is it lucrative?
Reply
TimMcKinlay Premium
For sure, you can absolutely begin promoting WA. It can be easier to tackle a lower competition niche first, but by all means WA is a great thing to promote, and there's plenty of money to be made. The 'make money' niche is one of the biggest niches online so the profit potential is practically endless.

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! :)

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche (could be anything)
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Danielle. :)

Envision me in the front of the classroom as the annoying one projecting her arm as high as it will go, pick me, pick me. I honestly don't have a clue how you respond so efficiently, unless you have secretly cloned yourself. Bad joke.
Ok, now that I enjoy talking with this incredible community, what if I decided to strictly promote WA as an Ambassador? Could I earn a nice chunk of change in doing so?
Reply
Kyle Premium
I haven't figured out how to clone myself yet, but I am definitely working on it! lol

You can promote anything you like, if you are going to head in the "Make Money" or related niche, you will want to go through the Affiliate Bootcamp. I do recommend though that you choose a niche that you are passionate or interested in. That way you love what you are doing.

And yes, the sky is the limit online. Regardless of the niche you choose you can earn a significant amount of money online. :)

Kyle,
Ok, I have always been curious as well as an active participant, I am after all American. lol
What if I did something to do with diet or adult coaching or inspiring others or motivational? Yea, sorry, my brain is going on overload status. It's good, for me, not so much for you. Falling under Health and Nutrition? You can make also make money blogging if I remember correctly?
I also made an impulse buy on a domain name that I wish I could get back but once a domain is purchased, what should I do with it? It is catchy but it has nothing to do with diet culture.
Are sexuality/relationships not on the table? I believe as a society, we don't talk enough about such a stigmatized subject. Any thoughts?
Reply
Kyle Premium
What aspect of the health/fitness niche do you want to help people with? There are literally 1,000's of niches within these categories and you will want to narrow it down.

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. :)

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here and many to help you.

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

To all my WA family members. Is it me or is it weird to harbor a sense of guilt walking away from my computer? I need to run some errands and for the first time in my life, I feel like I am abandoning my computer, moreso my community!
I am honest to my detriment but I would rather be the student that asks the awkward question so at least one person can be relieved of embarrassment.
If I get a laugh or two, all the better.

You will get used to that. But this site is not going anywhere. The key is to keep coming back, again and again. There will be days when you absolutely can't, and that is fine, too. You just play catch up for awhile after that. Just keep at it, be as diligent as you can, and you will succeed. Happy errands!
