Hello - here I am - starting again. Yes. I have been absent for some time and am beginning again. As before, it all seems so overwhelming - especially the starting over part. Didn't know how to pick up where I left off. Soooo - I decided to just start from the beginning again. I'm so glad to be in this community!! Thanks to everyone of you for being so positive and encouraging!!

To success for all

Hello there
I am so new to online marketing that its kinda scary. I have been piddling around for a few months - taking classes here and there (probably unnecessarily spending money). So I joined Wealthy Affiliate because I really want to make money online - as everyone here - and I keep seeing WA advertised as the best online education out there - especially for newbies. Believe me - I have tried quite a few and I am just totally confused and frustrated because I need to be gently guided step by step.

As for my passions - I love travelling: I love exercising; I'm a yoga instructor; I love reading and I love riding motorcycles. I love my pets, my children and my husband - not necessarily in that order - just in any order.

Anyway I am very excited to be here and hope I make lots of new friends.

Here's to us all

Broken down, this is going to be more than achievable for you (and then some). The internet has over 2 billion people actively search for and buying things online. All you need to do is connect with a few of these people each day to meet your initial goal!

I know with some hard work and persistence you will achieve all of your goals and then be building brand new ones. I am here to help if you ever need anything and you have an entire community rooting for your success here at WA Labarbara! :)

Hello and welcome to WA!
These are more than achievable goals. Sometimes it's good to start at a lower amount to give something for the mind to believe. Once you start making your initial goal and get the feeling of excitement it will then be easier for the mind to believe you can make even more. Stay focused and motivated and it will happen #BelieveAndReceive

Hi Kyle
I'm stuck trying to come up with a profitable niche. I'm probably being over analytical about it. Things I really like are health and fitness (general), yoga, hypnotherapy, working from home (competitive - very), pets. Any suggestions!!

Thanks, LaBarbara

Btw - signing up for premium now. I am very impressed with all of the training I can get with premium and the help from the community.

Yeah, you can take any one of these but I would narrow it down a bit. 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. :)

ok. Thanks Kyle!! That really helps. I think I'm going with the healing properties of yoga and maybe narrow it down even further.

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! :)

Hello Mike
I've been thinking of "yoga for healing" or "jewelry making for beginners" or something metaphysical. There I go - confusing myself again!! Anyway - your thoughts, words of wisdom?

Thanks for your help

Hi Labarbara, Yoga is very popular in saying that you must be very specific so Yoga for healing would be a good one for sure.
Jewelry making for beginners I would say looks very good and there are many things you can tie into that niche. I did a quick Google search and found some good affiliate programs this being one of them...
Join Program - ShareASale
Fire Mountain Gems and Beads Affiliate Program ... Over 116,000 Beads and Jewelry-Making Supplies; Swarovski Crystal Beads, Gemstones, Seed Beads, ...
I Like the jewelry making niche myself less competition but lots of potential. Hope that helps talk soon Mike.

Thanks Mike. It helps for sure. I'm gonna do both but focus on the jewelry making first. I like your suggestions and thanks for the affiliate links. Awesome!!

Hey Labarbara,

I just wanted to check in and see how you are doing? Hopefully you have had a chance to get started with the training?

When I first started here at Wealthy Affiliate I had a bunch of questions in the first few days and needed quite a bit of help as I had zero experience coming in :)

If you have any questions I will be more than happy to help out, just let me know and I'll do my best to lend a hand.

Cheers,

Mike

Hi Mike
Thanks so much. I feel like you are looking out for me and you got my back!! YaY!! I'm on the Niche lesson now and of course I have questions. For one - I still don't get the difference in a mini site and authority site. However I want to keep going and not get caught up in my sometimes too analytical mind.
One question though - do you think it would be wise to just go with the make money site in bootcamp to get started faster?

Thanks

LaBarbara

Hi Labarbara, the make money niche is very competitive and it can actually be a slow process I would suggest to finding some obscure niche that you can monetize. Some of the weirdest ideas can turn out to be profitable niches I have seen many find obscure niches in my years doing affiliate marketing one dealt with rabbit supplies wherever there is a need for a product or service you will find an opportunity.
Here is a link that will help you drill down on a niche let me know what ideas you come up with and I will help you pick one, talk soon Mike.

Hi Labarbara, Mike here from http://avoidonlinemarketingscams.com,

I am so happy you made the decision to take advantage of this opportunity. If you are determined and can stick with your training here at WA it can open the door to an exciting and rewarding future as it has for me. This is where your online business is going to be realized. Here's the course that started me down the road to an unbelievable lifestyle and one that is now within your reach. From this point on you will have not only my support in person but the ability to ask any questions of the community here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Without wasting too much time you can now access the Online Entrepreneur level 1 online course found in the main menu by clicking the green "Get Started Here" button.

Here's the link to lesson 1: This is the course that I started with and lead me to my first sale online!

If you are willing to put in an honest effort and take the bull by the horns I will personally help you through the course or with any questions or concerns you may have in your quest to make your online business a reality.

I can be reached through my personal profile at any time when you have any questions...trust me, you will!

Oh! Lesson 3 "Finding A Niche" for many is the most challenging to get through without pulling out your hair and the occasional temper tantrum so I have created some extra material that I feel will be of huge benefit to you while working through this lesson, let me know when you are there and I will give you if you upon request.

Don't forget to create your personal profile by adding an image and a few words about yourself! You will find many WA members come offering their help and asking you to follow them which is a great resource for you to have access too, many members here have a wealth of knowledge that you can tap into.

Just a quick heads up! You can just do the course and that's it or you can take advantage of a discount on a premium membership here at WA. There is absolutely no pressure to change your status, but if you decide to become a Premium member and unlock absolutely everything Wealthy Affiliate has to offer and do so before your 7 day course is over you will qualify for a 50% discount on the first month of your membership.

I look forward to getting to know you and being able to help out when you have questions.

Cheers, Mike
