This Old Dog Signed-up for DirecTv BUT I Didn't Want To
Last Update: Feb 9, 2016
Yes, it's true. Ruthie and I signed up for DirecTv and had it installed the other day but I didn't want to. It all started a month or so ago when Ruthie said, "I don't ever get to see you anymore. You spend all of your time at Wealthy Affiliate answering emails and writing articles for your website. I get lonely ever night not having you around."
The fact is, I am always home but yes I do have things to do and yes my dear Ruthie is suffering as a result of it. I went online and found a company that for $250 would create a life-sized rubber replica of me that Ruthie could plop down on the couch next to her and talk to it all night long. Ruthie rejected the concept! Something had to change. So Ruthie instructed me to order DirecTv to help fill up her lonely nights with uninterrupted "chick flicks" and multiple QVC channels. All was well on the home front. Then the world fell apart.
Ruthie had me move a wall mirror in the house to a different location. How much could that hurt? Well, it did. The new placement of the mirror hampered the wireless signal to the very DirecTv receiver on the tv that Ruthie loves to watch the most. The result, no tv for Ruthie.
Now, I consider myself to be somewhat of a "techie" for an old guy but no amount of previous skill was going to help me out this time. To the telephone, I went to DirecTv for some real help. The call lasted for well over an hour but in the end, the tv receiver was reset and Ruthie's tv was restored. Then it dawned on me!
What a great idea for a WA super niche. Pull up directv.com with its endless and hours of instruction on how to make their system work in your home and use that information to write helpful pieces for your website (written in plain English) on how to make your reader's Directv work in their home. You could add endless affiliate marketing widgets to your website regarding everything needed to make an evening at home in front of the tube more enjoyable. Heck, you could probably get Directv to affiliate market with you so that if someone clicked on your Directv widget and your reader ordered Directv for their home you would get a commission. What an idea. Who says that all of the really great niches are taken. What a great community our WA is to all of us. DAN
