About Gregory16
Joined February 2018
I live in the UK in a small town called West Bromwich, I have 3 children (2 girls one boy). I enjoy training in the Martial Arts, I'm currently training in Ed Parkers Chi Kenpo Karate but have been training in various other styles for 28 years.

I'm currently a stay at home dad, but I started my work life at the age of 13 doing a paper round before and after school. When I finally left school at the age of 17 I started my first full time job working in a foundry. Whilst working in the foundry I showed an interest in management and was put on their management training scheme. Since then i have worked in management and tried so hard to climb further up the ladder but with no luck. So now I stay at home looking after the kids and hopefully building a successful business with WA over the next few years.

Hi
I have been a premium member for about a week now. I love WA it just gives you so much. The problem is me, ok so I have had a few niche ideas, even started to do websites and I keep changing my mind. I always go back to my original idea and that is gadgets but this is as far as I get "GADGETS" I know this is broad but as I look at possible niches within gadgets I just wanna be able to cover all sorts of gadets and not just gadgets for him or gadgets for the kitchen etc etc. So my question is, Is there a way to do this and still get traffic or do I really have to pick a niche from within Gadgets? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Gregory. Hope your are well. I don't know that I'll necessarily be able to give you a conclusive answer to your question but here are a few thoughts -

1) Gadgets is a VERY broad niche but it's a launch pad. From there you need to start honing in on a few areas. Think about they types of gadgets, electronic, practical, etc. This will help you start narrowing things down and you'll discover a few targets that you can then dig into. I would imaging that once you've started with a few specifics you'll be able to broaden out with a lot more ease further down the road.

2) I don't think any of us who start this journey don't feel a little overwhelmed at first. Especially in the first month or so. Let me tell you there are times when I still have to steady myself. Chopping and changing ideas I think is part of the course and can be used to our benefit in that we have considered a number of options. When you eventually settle - really settle - on a niche idea you'll know that you are happy with it because you have applied thought to it.

3) I have found that as I immerse myself in the training and the education resources here I am more focused as to where I want to go and how I can get there.

This was a mouthful but I hope that it has been somewhat helpful to you. Let me know your thoughts.

All the best,

Brian

Thank-You very much. If only you knew how much of a help this is. I was thinking u had to choose one niche say gadgets for the kitchen and stick to it, because I just love gadgets but all gadgets and most people I know that love gadgets love different types too.

Again,Thank-You very much

Congratulations on your decision to invest in your future with your premium membership to Wealthy Affiliate! I have been here a couple of years now, and I still learn valuable lessons from the wonderful people here! You have to commit to the long haul if you really want to be successful here, but to start, just follow the training. If your first sites aren't a huge success, don't be discouraged. Just capitalize on what you have learned and develop a new site. Over time, you will find what works best for you! I wish you great success and prosperity!

Sincerely,
Tom

Thanks for that. I was very dubious at first, I have checked out loads of other platforms and decided to go with WA. After loads of research WA seem to offer the best on the entire internet. Now I'm really excited to get going.

I hope things are going well Gregory! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Gregory!

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 Kyle

Thanks for your rapid responses.

I have chosen a niche but now I'm not sure. Family clothing, a place for clothes for all the family? I have named my website Clothes For All. I'm not too sure how this will work now to be honest. Any advice you could offer would be much appreciated.

Kyle Premium
Honestly Gregory, I think that your niche that you have chosen is far too broad. I recommend that you narrow this down slightly and to do this I would recommend trying out the Alphabet Soup Technique.

Here is a short training video on this: I use this not just for keywords, but also to narrow down my niches into something more specific. Remember also, there are TWO BILLION people on the Internet. Even some of the seemingly smallest niches out there have huge audiences that are searching for help with them and buying products within them.

Also, I recently blogged about what is too broad of a niche and how to define what is a suitable niche (with some real examples). I absolutely recommend that you check this out as it is going to definitely help you here Gregory. If you want to run any of your "narrowed down" niches by me, please do let me know and I will be more than happy to give you a hand Gregory. :)

Hi Kyle

The video really helped.

I'm thinking of changing my niche to Travel Accessories any advice would be appreciated.

Kyle Premium
When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

I look forward to working with you Gregory and if you ever need a hand with anything going forward, please get in touch with me. Chat soon!
