Great decision you have made. I am happy for you. Please maximize this opportunity to build a robust online business.

Read these two articles on my WA Blog (JOFA); i.e. if you want to avoid many mistakes I made in my early days as an online marketer.

HI!!! And welcome to WA Premium. You won’t regret this decision!! The information available here is never ending!! And the training is Incredible!! Gobble it up!!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons.

Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. I did. There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome!! Be amazing!!! And be successful!!

Hey Dereck! Welcome to WA! Congrats on going premium!

So glad you made it here to Wealthy Affiliate! It's a great place to learn how to make money with affiliate marketing.

I think the most import thing to do with any new venture is to "plug in" and be consistent. Schedule time each day to do the training, work on your site and write content. You'll find that content is king. :)

There's so much info here that it can feel like you're drinking from a fire hose! :) Learn at your pace. Please don't hesitate to ask for help. LiveChat is a great place to go for a quick answer. You'll find the community here at WA is very helpful and supportive.

Here's to great success with your WA journey and online endeavors!

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! :)

Hi Kyle,

Great to hear from you. As I'm going through the training and trying to find a "niche", one idea did come to mind and that is Financial Literacy. I consider it to be an important topic, and something that many people could benefit from knowing, but I'm unsure of how to drill down and find either services or products that are related to Financial Literacy. Sure there are a lot of books consumers could buy, but there a lot of free courses offered online as well, so I'm not sure on how follow through on this possibility. Do you have any advice?

Thanks!

Sure, that is definitely a direction you can head.

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. :)

Thanks Kyle, that helps a lot. While I think a product/service related to Financial Literacy is something I may pursue, I've thought of another option that I think I can start with right away: the yard game Corn hole. With Football and tailgating season starting, and Christmas a couple months away, I think may be a good niche to look into.

Thanks as always for your time and assistance!

Awesome, corn hole is another direction. Many discussions, game strategies, types of boards, events, etc. you can discuss within that space. Last year at our annual Vegas trip we actually had our own custom cornhole games made, it was a hit.
