About JimSchmitt
Joined July 2017
I am a retired accountant who is fascinated with the internet and the opportunities that are available. Like many others, I have tried different options to get on the web and earn some money. Unfortunately, I only recently discovered Wealth Affiliates.

My wife and I live in the state of Washington with out two dogs. We love traveling, museums, old cars and trains. I also have collected a variety of clocks and am interested in how to repair clocks that quit working. As a youth, I was taught stamp collecting by my grandfather and have a small stamp collection to this day. My favorite sport is baseball but I also watch football and hockey.

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! :)

My wife and I had a previous website with a niche of bedding. We found the ability to write "unique content" for that niche very limited. We got about 1200 visitors over 6 months on-line with no conversions.

As a result, I feel selection of the niche is very critical. I feel like I have to check ad words, competition and whether groups exist in social media as we found all of that was difficult with the niche of bedding. You may say that was too broad a niche but it was what we chose.

I know your video indicates we can always change the niche but there is a lot of work that goes into getting a site up, writing content and trying to get traffic. As my profile indicates, trains, baseball, travel and reading are my main areas of interest but again, I think, you might say they are too broad as a niche.

I would appreciate your thoughts.

All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 3.75 BILLION people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

Hey Jim!
This is Kyle (not the owner, just a member). I am glad you made it. Wealthy Affiliate is awesome and you will like it. If you are ready to roll you can get started in the training if you click the green button labeled "Get Started Here" in the upper left-hand menu.

Everything is laid out simple, but inevitably things are going to get confusing for you at some point in the training. So if you ever need help don't hesitate to message me. I was in your shoes not too long ago and would be happy to help.
