About Gilb84
Joined July 2017
Hey! I'm Kirsty, from a small island, called Orkney, in Scotland.
I'm a farmer's wife and mum to a gorgeous little boy who is my world!
I am most happy when gorging on delicious food, holidaying, socialising with my friends or when surrounded by my family.
My hobbies are netball and hockey and I also enjoy a little photography.
I'm up for a challenge, always strive to do my best and am a bit of a perfectionist. Looking forward to being part of Wealthy Affiliates!
Gilb84's Goals 3
Money Goals
1
Money I would be happy earning
I'd love to eventually see my earnings be my main income - possibly somewhere between £30,000 - £50,000 per annum.
2
Money I would be ecstatic earning
£50,000 - £100,000 per annum.
3
Time I'm willing to invest to achieve my goals
If I don't return to my full time work at the end of my maternity leave, I will be a stay-at-home mum who will have to juggle that work with my online business. Obviously I'm aware this won't be easy but will try to put in a few hours every day. I would like to think that I will see some money coming in within the first year but I understand that realistically it is unlikely to be a great amount. I just hope to be able to make a little income even to begin with.

How much money would you be happy earning?

How much would you be ecstatic earning?
£50,000 - £100,000 per annum.

And how much time are you willing to invest to achieve these goals?

Hello,
I have learned so much. I have been with WA for three years, but I took my time getting information and building my website. I was also juggling family matters. I am going back through the lessons to pick up more hints to help me fine tune my website. I am still excited about being here.

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 there, and thanks for your message.

I've chosen my niche and made my website but am wondering now if I've gone too broad with my niche.
I've decided to base it on products for babies with sensitive skin. How does this sound to you? Or do you feel I might have been better to just have a website that is based on, for example, promoting nappy rash products alone? I'm just worried I'd get a bit stuck for ideas if I was only sticking to this one skin issue.

Thanks :)

I think that sounds like a great niche! This is a common issue and very specific. But it's broad enough to cover several things like clothes, lotions, soaps, etc.

It's narrow enough to be specific to a type of person (parent with a baby with sensitive skin), but broad enough to allow you to write on diverse topics so you don't get stuck writing about nappy rash all day.

Brilliant, thanks so much for your reply.
The only thing I'm worried about now is the name - I've called it Sensitive Baby-skin Solutions, and now I'm really not liking it - just doesn't sound right. Is it simple enough or even possible to change this? Or would you recommend I just stick with it?
Many thanks again.

Kirsty.

You'll be able to change this name if you upgrade to premium and move your site to a .com domain name. otherwise, you can delete the site and start over, or create a second site with a new name. You have two free sites on your current free account!

Hi Nathaniell, thanks for your message.

I'm a complete newbie to this but am keen to learn. I'm just having difficulty watching the videos yet in the Getting Started Course but have asked for some help so hopefully I'll get it sorted ASAP - I'm thinking it may have something to do with working off an iPad.

Thanks, Kirsty.

The videos should be accessible on an ipad, but things like operating system, browser, internet connection, etc can cause issues with video.

I would try to watch them on a desktop computer using Chrome browser, or at least try the chrome browser on iPad.

Let me know how it goes!
