About Dlcurt
Joined April 2015
My name is Derek and I have wonderful wife, for whom I've been married to for 13 years and 2 great kids. I've been working for 20 years as an educator. I've taught elementary and for the last 9 years, special education. In the Spring of 2014, I graduated from a Massage Therapy school to become a LMP because I was looking for a change.

I love being an LMP and I still teach, but I'm looking to retire from teaching and want something to help provide income besides massage. I'm hoping WA will assist with this goal.

Still stuck on a niche! I've narrowed it down somewhat. I was thinking along the Massage Therapy route, but changed my mind. I had a new idea. I've been an educator longer then a LMP, so atm, I have way more knowledge there. Not sure if this is a good idea or not, but awhile back my sister and I discussed having our own business. We're both in the same field. She's more social work oriented, but we share the same knowledge (she has more). Anyway, the point being, would it be bad for us to go into this together. She can write the blogs, I maintain the website stuff, affiliates, etc... and chime in on the blogs? Also, my thought was... we can cover a large variety of subjects in the field between the 2 of us. Should we make 1 large site with many small ones, or start small 1st?

I would keep your website very targeted to one specific niche. Targeting many different things will confuse your audience and lead them to the impression that you are not an expert, rather a generalist (which you don't want).

You can work together on the project, but from my experience working on your own website will lead to the best results as with group projects someone always ends up doing all of the work.

If you need a hand with anything going forward let me know and I will give you a hand.

I'm still stuck! Reading different Massage Therapist blogs, but they don't look too good and appear to lack traffic. Should I be concerned?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, don't worry about your competition...most of them will have no idea what they are doing. That is the case within the online world, you are going to learn the proper techniques here at WA, techniques that most folks do not know.

Head through the training, take action, and don't worry about competition. You will be well on your way. :)

If you can help people, you can create a successful business doing so. This goes for absolutely any niche Derek.

Over the years I have personally been involved in many niches and the same principles held true. If you help someone, you build trust and once you have trust, you can generate revenue through your promotions. Not until then.

That is what you are going to learn all about here at WA and the proper strategies to create a business online. I look forward to working with you and if you need a hand with anything moving forward, simply drop me a reply here and I will give you a hand.

PS. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Thanks! I came across this site through your ways to avoid scams page late last night during my occasional late night web searching when I don't want to sleep moods. Since today was Easter, I'm just getting started with the videos. As soon as questions pop up, I will start asking! Thanks again.

Kyle,
I'm stuck trying to figure out my niche! I'm on course 1, lesson 4. I've been an educator for 20 years and recently started learning the benefits of massage since I've become a licensed massage therapist. I lean towards the health benefits of massage or perhaps something along those lines. However, I've also worked with kids for most of my adult working years. So I can't quite narrow things down. Any help would be appreciated.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, definitely can be your niche and if that is your passion Derek I would recommend you go for it. Many people do need help with various ailments and massage can likely be the answer. If you can HELP people, you can build a very successful business doing so.
