About Lorraine52
Joined October 2016
I have spent a lot of my life learning to cope with challenging situations as have we all. Despite reading many self help books, following the law of attraction and trying positive thought, I still suffered bouts of depression and failed miserably at goal setting and taking charge of my life.
The first goal I ever achieved was buying my horse. I put up a picture and a date and my horse appeared in my life and became mine exactly in the month I had stated. From that day on she has helped me understand all the learning I had done and In 2012 I created a free self help website based on what she had shown me. So that others need not suffer as I had.
Since then my health has been ruled by my stress levels making it very hard to work for other people, but I learned that I could write quite well, ghost writing articles on line for a pittance but very good experience. I also have a positively motivated Facebook profile and two pages, one for my website and one for my self published poetry book.
I always talk a lot but I started to realise that my strength was in my words and I can not help but think that it is my life work to help people in this way. Unfortunately hours giving people advice on line does not pay the bills and so I turned to affiliate marketing to make money from my site whilst still helping people for free.
I find the whole affiliate marketing thing confusing as Google has so many rules and regulations about their ads and what else is on your page and I am worried my site will be blacklisted.
I am rebuilding my site and would love to include affiliate ads as well as advertising my own books, a second edition of my poetry book (I made mistakes with the cover of the first edition and can now add some bonus poems) and my book nearly self published book, Grief, the Unseen Pain - a comprehensive guide to the grief we all carry.
I would love to turn my energy to my writing and my horse and forget the need for a 'proper' job and am hoping affiliate marketing will help me do this.

To all my followers. Thank you for following me, unfortunately their will be nothing to follow soon. Having joined and watched some training I can see this is a great site to help you build your on line businesses and I have learned some valuable information. Unfortunaely for me, the platform and web builder this site uses is miles away from where my website already is and starting afresh or transferng to a new platform is not really something I can deal with at this time. Due to my current financial situation I cannot justify the site subscription when I cannot personally make this work at this time.
I wish you all good luck and hope you all succeed in your personal endeavours. You are in the right place especially if you are just starting up. Good luck to all
Lorraine

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! :)

Thank you. Focus is difficult at the moment. I know I can succeed at this so my "self destruct " keeps kicking in. It's amazing how many things you can get done whilst priocrastinating getting rich. lol

Hi Lorraine,

We can't avoid it in most time, this is not the only thing we're doing every day, there is always some destruction.

Thank you Tasna. How are you getting on? I am stuck with my Niche.I guess I'll get there in the end.
Reply
Tasna Premium
I got stuck at the niche stage too. Mainly due to having so many interests. Due your due diligence and research. This can take days or quite a period of time. One thing that helped me was to analyse what type of information am I interested in, what am I always looking for tips in? What do I get excited about? What resonates and then how can I look at monetising the website.

Hope that helps.

Lorraine52 Premium
Thank you yes. My current website covers "self help" so the niches that are within that are numerous, trying to concentrate on one is a nightmare. lol

Kyle I am really struggling with my Niche. I wanted to turn my present website into a money machine whilst still helping people with all the free info but the website is self help, anxiety, depression, grief and the analytics are low and I don't want to stick sales funnels all over it and make the people who need the help think they have to buy stuff.
This all makes me then think I should start a wordpress site with another niche but I keep getting low analytics on everything I chose.

Kyle Premium
That is too broad, which niche are you targeting there. Self help, anxiety , depression and grief are all MASSIVE niches. You will want to narrow things down here, choose just one of those and then go form there.

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. :)

Hi dear welcome to the wonderful family of Wealthy Affiliate.

Hope you join us in making lots of money here.

The secret is: REGULAR work.

Just give 1 hour of your precious time every day, you will start earning money without great effort.

Sorry forgot to introduce myself, I'm Usiba Umsizi (your helper),

just have a quick look at my profile to know more about me.

Here is the link: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/thebuilder

Tips: I've started by writing just one paragraph about me. Then after every 15days or so, I add another paragraph,...(You get the point - Regular work - step by step - No need to Rush)

There is no need to do everything in one day. Do it slowly, you will enjoy it.

I'm happy to follow you. Hope to see you in my network and to hear from you soon.
