About GarethCook
Joined July 2017
Hello! I am a 13-year veteran educator, currently serving as an Assistant Principal out in Leander, Texas (very close to the capital, Austin). I have a life-long love of learning, but sadly our efforts as educators do not match what we are paid. I am here to continue my learning journey, but this time into the realm of online marketing! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me both to ask for help and also to give it! I look forward to integrating myself into this fabulous WA community!

Thanks for the chat we had, we learn something new every day here. I went back to look at the new post I wrote up for my website today, and realized my images were smaller than I normally would have them! Thank you for pointing that out they look better now. Word count up 139 ;) :)

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! :)

Thanks, @Kyle!

I am thinking along the lines of either youth/adult soccer equipment (i.e. shoes, gloves, uniforms, etc.), or soccer training (i.e. online coaching, systems, drills/skills, etc.). Does equipment seem too broad, even if I tabbed each section on my website and researched best brands and did a compare/contrast with affiliate links to each product? Would narrowing it down to youth or adult matter?

In regards to training, I'm not sure how I could use affiliate programs to promote anything related to that topic, as most people nowadays simply go to Youtube and watch videos. I just feel more knowledgeable about the topic in general as a lifelong player.

At the least, I would much rather go this route first before trying affiliate boot camp so I can at least say I tried my own niche and did as much trial/error firsthand.

Kyle Premium
Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)
