About Greg-C
Joined August 2017
Greg here - I've been looking to build an online business for some time now, as the benefits of working from home and building a worldwide business that is recession proof is very appealing. I have worked as a CAD technician for architects most of my working life, and must develop other streams of income as the construction industry is the first to dry up every time there is a recession. Affiliate marketing looks like a fantastic opportunity, and to follow a proven system like Wealthy Affiliate seems like a good way to learn the business from people that have done it.

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also 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 just wrote my 102nd training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

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

Hi Loes, Thanks for all that, I just checked it out. It will be a big help.
A quick question: I am up to the training where I add links to my affiliate program. Is there a recommended number of affiliate programs you can link to on one website? Is 2 or 3 Ok?

No, but I know from experience that the more you have the more cluttered it will become, 2-3 is fine. When you work via a network company, you can use a bit more. You get one overview

Good day to you Greg, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. After high school, I started going to college to become an architect. This was back when everything was done 'old school', no computer-assisted software like CAD. I had to drop out of college, get married and start raising a family. Even though my life had me going in a different direction than what I originally wanted, I am also facing occupational reshaping. I am a printer by trade with technology going all digital. I am still standing, though.
I am also learning here at WA to build multiple streams of income to make my income 'recession proof'. Careers can no longer be guaranteed. So I am building my retirement income today.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much success in your online journey.
Ken

Hi Ken. Looks like you're here for the same reasons as me. To build an income that is recession-proof. I'm so glad to have come across WA, and be trained by people who can help every step of the way. Look forward to working with you too.

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Hey Greg, 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

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 Nathaniell,
Yes I do have a couple of niche ideas I'd like to run by you. I am up to the step where I have to choose.
I have always been a bit of a gym junkie, and into health & fitness, so I was thinking maybe something in the fitness apparel area. Do you think this niche is too overcrowded already?
My other main interest is motorbikes. I used to race professionally in my 20's, and since then always had dirt bikes for a bit of fun. There is a market for motorcycle apparel/accessories. Do you think this is too narrow and limited?
I read somewhere we get 2 websites initially, so should I choose 2 niches at this stage?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

As for your gym idea, you should never worry about competition, because if there is competition, it means that people are making money there. Also, you should understand that you are starting out as a beginner right now, but with time and focus, you will become an expert in this niche. It may look like you can't compete with the "professionals" right now, but you will be able to...that's what the WA training will teach you.

Building a business has to start from a beginning point. Your site may look a bit boring in the beginning, and it may seem like a tough task ahead to join a competitive market, but there's always room in any industry for passionate, knowledgable, and engaging business owners.

However, you'll want to get more specific. Gym apparel for WHO? Male bodybuilders? Triathletes? Women doing yoga?

Thanks for your advice. I set up one website last night in my motorcycling interest and called it 'motogearonline'. Do you think I should modify this name? I will set up my second website tonight in the fitness/workout wear industry and take your advice and narrow it down to mens bodybuilding/gym wear. I'm at a loss as to what to do next, so I'll follow the next lesson.
Thanks for all your help. I will upgrade to premium tonight as it seems the way to go if you're serious about it.

Hi Nathaniell. You have a very inspiring story and was my decider in joining Wealthy Affiliate. Looking forward to corresponding with you. I have been looking at Amazon for some time and I see they have an affiliate program, but you must have your own website and this is all still new to me. Do you deal with Amazon as part of the Wealthy Affiliate team?

nathaniell Premium
I am a part of Amazon's affiliate program, but WA doesn't have any special relationship with them. Anyone can join.

However, if it's confusing to you how to join, that's OK! This will be part of your training. Kyle will walk you through the steps of joining Amazon, plus a bunch of other potential affiliate programs. There are thousands out there, so you just need to pick a few that are related to your website.
