The Good, The Bad and the Ugly of the First Few Months

Last Update: December 07, 2017

So far, my time here at Wealthy Affiliate has been fantastic, and inspiring. I came in with a healthy dose of skepticism, but also a determination to succeed, and make the most of my opportunity. I quickly found that Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal.

I have admittedly had difficulties. The teaching has been excellent, and has enabled me to build a website that I think looks great, and I am starting to be pretty proud of it. My greatest difficulty is that while my niche is something that I love and can write about, I do not think it's profitable. The potential for profit from my particular niche, which is movies, and more specifically the Oscars, and movie critique/opinion sharing, seems pretty sparse. I am now trying to decide if I should stick with the website and niche that I am in now, or try to use the knowledge that I now have to pursue a niche with more profitable potential.

I have definitely come to appreciate the community here! And I look forward to what the future holds.

Hello Jordan, wish I could respond to your comment about your niche, but like many of us you have to live your dream. If you did not you would always be wondering “what if. “ From what I can see you joined in November, that is a very short period of tie to give your niche an opportunity to attract visitors and create powerful content. I would give it a little more time than that and see what others who are fascinated by the Oscars have done on the internet. That might give you ideas on what is missing and could be your content builder.

Honestly, your biggest monetary assets when using a niche like that, would be using banners for WA on the site, as well as creating and linking to a Youtube where you did video reviews of those movies.

You could set up a Twitch and do live streams where you discussed the latest movies and talked about the Oscars, and link that to Patreon, so your subscribers could tip you.
