I want to learn affiliate marketing, and build a successful online business. - Mar 2017

Hey there,

My name is Jude and I started out with Wealthy Affiliate in March 2017. I was motivated to start an online business because of corporate and the daily commuting fatigue. I work in the Executive Search targeting manufacturing industry and the food ecosystem. I enjoy connecting people to their passions (jobs) but with ever-increasing economic volatility, it is difficult to mention job and security within the same sentence.

# My venture into online business #
After some online research, I stumbled across Wealthy Affiliate and the reviews were very positive. I didn't hesitate much to join the community and shortly, I signed up to be a Premium member as I didn't want to just skim the surface.

Alas...I fell prey to what I later learnt to be the Shiny Object Syndrome (SOS) and it distracted me from what I started out trying to achieve in WA. I was looking at Amazon selling, Drop shipping, Kindle publishing etc. and the more I researched, I discovered I was spending more time researching than TAKING ACTION. It put me into a spiral of analysis paralysis and I shared this in a blog post on my website to help others avoid what I went through. 6 months is a large chunk of time to be wasted roaming around. :(

For now, it is back to basics, staying focused with WA and DOING JUST ONE THING RIGHT - Learning and Executing. All businesses take time and I'm sure this is true for WA.

I am happy to connect and learn from you all, not just how to create a business (though that's the core theme here) but also about your experiences and stories around the globe.

I left my social media handles, email and contact details below. Open to connect and currently I ran two websites, one of which I co-founded with my wife who is a recent convert for affiliate marketing. :)

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! :)

Kyle,

You read my mind! I am stumped at the website creation stage, because I can't figure out what is my niche. It seems that for it to be my niche, it has to be something I already do/own/am using etc.
I am interested in bicycles actually but the irony is that I don't own one of these and a quick check on the web seems to indicate that there aren't that many affiliate programs associated with bicycles. Maybe I am wrong, and just need to dig deeper. :)
What do you think?

A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

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. :)

PS. There are 10,000's of products/services that you can promote online relating to affiliate programs, never worry about there being a lack of products/services to promote.

Hey Jk! Welcome to WA! I'm so glad you decided to create your free starter membership! I'm guessing you came here through my website, http://KirbysMarketing.com. Just in case you didn't, I will introduce myself again!

My name is Dustin! I have been a member here at Wealthy Affiliate since June 2013. Unfortunately, I got off to a slow start and didn't really dive in until a few months later. However, since I made that decision to dedicate time and energy to absorbing all of the information WA has to offer, the results have been tremendous! I am now getting thousands of visitors to my website a month and am actually turning a profit!

I'm more than willing to pass on what I have learned and look forward to learning a lot from you! So, if you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to shoot them my way.

Since you are a brand new member, I would suggest you get started by heading over to the "Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started" course. It is located on the top of the left-hand sidebar where it says "Get Started Here". Or you can simply click on the link below: It would also be really great if you would finish setting up your profile so we can get to know you a little better! All you need to do is upload a profile picture (can be anything) and write a brief description about yourself! Watch the video in the link below if you need some guidance to do this: Go ahead and dive in! I'm sure you will feel completely overwhelmed at first...but that's a beautiful thing. All you have to do is ask and you will find your answers!

Peace!
Dustin

P.S. Make sure you click the reply button below and say hi so I know you made it OK!

Hello Dustin,
Thanks for the email. That's what I am doing right now and I am very amazed by the clarity of the videos here. And by that, I am not just referring to their screen resolution but the contents, it offers a newbie like myself very clear steps for getting it right from the start.

Taking my time to absorb the information here.

Cheers!
Jk

Definitely take your time and go through all of the steps without skipping anything. The first time I went through I thought I could skip some things and realized that it's actually really important the second time I went through.
