About Gopika1
Joined November 2016
Hello and Welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate Community.

I'm Gopika from Living Well and Happy.com and it is my genuine desire to challenge, inspire and motivate people around me to reach the top of their potential.

My life's journey can only be described as a rich tapestry of experience. Born and raised in Chile in the '70s, I used to work as a photographer up until 1999. That was when I realized that my life was meant to go further and the horizons I was meant to reach were not there. So I quit my job and sold all my belongings. Left only with a small motorcycle and a little more than a camping set, I embarked on a 10-day trip through the Pacific Ocean, with a mission to find what makes me happy and fulfilled.

I ended up living in a small island in the Pacific, which only had a meager population of about 2,000 people. While I was there, I had no other option but to learn how to live sustainably and support myself. I started growing my own food and lived as close to nature as I possibly could. While this was a challenging experience, I feel like it opened up my world view and showed me that nothing is impossible once you set your mind on it. It also taught me how to be resourceful and creative when it comes to problem solving – something that would prove extremely useful in my life later on.

Afterwards, I embarked on more travelling as a yoga student, living in monasteries and studying philosophy with monks all over the world. I have visited over 10 countries, across all continents, and I have met and helped people from all walks of life. Currently I live in France but as you might notice, this can only just be a pit stop on my journey through life!

That's definitely something that you can get by dedicating time and being consistent in your efforts Gopika. An hour or two is a great way to start so you don't get overwhelmed, and I'm sure that over time, as you start seeing results, you'll want to ramp up your efforts to see faster results!

Hi Gopika, lovely to meet you.

Goodness, you're well traveled. I've been to France, Portugal, Spain and Thailand from your long list there but I'd have to probably count France out because that was hardly a visit - it was more a stopover - didn't see a thing :)

Well, it's fantastic to meet you and thanks for the follow. I'd love to connect with you and share your journey here.

Wishing you every success

Hi Gopika, thanks for the follow. Happy to follow you back, what an interesting bio! I have started traveling the world 7 years ago but at a slow pace, since I've been working as a teacher in different countries for a while. This gives me time to immerse in new cultures and explore the surrounding places. Chile and Peru are in my top 10 bucket list, can't wait to visit South America.

We share the same values :)
I wish you success in your online endeavors!

Gopika, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

Wow, you are my first contact from Chile! And very well travelled too. Where about is Australia did you visit?

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao

Good morning to you Gopika, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. This world is full of wonderful and glorious sights, people and things that help spawn, inspire, or develop the soul inside of us all. You have seen much more of this world than I have, but the places and people that I have met have made an impact on me. People who are able to step outside of their comfort zone and go to places they have only read about are people who don't shy away from challenges.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success and enjoyment from your online journey.
Ken

Hello Gopika,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016-2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Kyle has a great video here: He talks about the basics. There's a whole list of other resources here: but don't get overwhelmed! Start with Kyle's, and see how it goes.

Shoot me a message if you have any questions about the stuff he talks about in the video!

Gopika1 Premium
Hey Nathaniell. So, the keywords will help me to choose what to talk about in my web to attract traffic. What I dont understand is the numbers, AVG must be under 300 and best 150. QSR must be at least 50. Do this means that will be a better KW one that is AVG 0 and QSR 500 (People is looking for it but nobody talking about?) than one that is AVG 300 and QSR 50 (webs are talking about and there is some traffic) ????
Im not very clear about how to choose the best number combination.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You want high AVG (high number of searches) and low QSR (low competition). The numbers that Kyle gives are a guideline, but not strict rules. As long as there are some searches and low enough competition (Under 100 is good, under 50 is best) then you can use that keyword.
Reply
Gopika1 Premium
and when I need to pick few KWs what will be best?

AVG <10 and QSR 0
or
AVG 128 and QSR 0

Is like AVG 128 will be better because people is looking for it more?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Yes. With the top one, AVG <10 means less than 10 people per month search for that term. With the bottom one is means an average of 128 people per month search. That's much better!

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! :)

Hello Nathaniell,
I've been writing down and reflecting about my niche.
After reading your 4th day e-mail I feel I would like to focus in helping people who want to find a more balance lifestyle through meditation, yoga and alternative therapies. I feel this is a niche where I can talk to many people in different aspects so I can find hundred of topics to talk about and products to promote, from essential oils for relaxation and focus in your yoga practice, to biodegradable products, to keep your family free of harmful ingredients, to bach flowers for your pets, to special gloves to do yoga in any hotel room while you are travelling and cannot bring your yoga-math!

Nathaniell, is this broad-covering niche something you think it will work for one website instead of several small niche webs?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
"Finding balance" is a little broad, but it can work! My advice is to imagine your ideal customer or visitor as you write content so you can make your website more targeted to a specific type of person. For example, a 20 year old male from NYC is going to have a different idea of balance than a 50 year old lady from the Midwest.

If you can narrow down who your audience is, then "finding balance" will be totally find as a niche. You already have lots of product ideas, review ideas, and content ideas to work with as you listed in your message, so that will not be an issue moving forward.

My ideal customers would be professional active women on their 60's.

Hello Nathaniell,
Im following your course! Thanks for the help.
I have a question for you: it's the spanish speaking public as good as the english one for the business?
My written spanish is far more better than the english one. If i build my websites in spanish then will I have much less opportunities than if I do them in english? Better to build english content even if I make some mistakes?
Regards
Reply
nathaniell Premium
That's exactly how I would put it. There ARE Spanish affiliate programs, and there are millions of people that surf the net in Spanish. It's the world 2nd largest language (I think...or close). However, most affiliate programs and most internet traffic is in English.

Your English seems very good. I would recommend focusing on an English website for now, and you can always try a Spanish one later after you have some experience and have been through the WA training from start to finish.
