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!

And the same to you Geoff - thanks so much for the follow :)

Ha ha, I know - I thought the same! (Not that we mind at all but it seems there are not many British folk around here - they've just obviously not been lucky enough to find WA yet!)

I hope WA is treating you well, good luck for your future here, and I'm sure we'll speak again!

WA is one of the best, if not the best that I have come across in the marketeering world and I think success is just round the corner for all of us in the community.

Good luck for the future and I hope you do well.

Hey Kirsty, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

PSS. Just about every new member wants to see some success stories! There are too many to list, but here are a few of my favorites: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/parre/blog/boom-goes-the-dynamite-4-338-57-for-august

Hi Nathaniell, I'll be sure to check out these success stories!
I've started the course and have chosen my niche although I'm not completely sure about it. If you check further below, I replied to your earlier msg and you'll see what I'm unsure about. Thanks.

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 :)
Reply
nathaniell Premium
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.

Gilb84 Premium
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!
