It is a pleasure to meet you Lisa! I can hear the music in your words, you are a lyrical writer. I have a passion for music also, but have not been able to integrate it so indepthly into my life as you have been blessed to do. That is incredibly magical!

Okay, back to the "business" at hand. What a thrill it is to be part of WA, after so much searching. . . I'm new also, but enjoying the past 3 weeks immensely.

I look forward to all the wonderful accomplishments we'll make with WA and the building of our own online businesses this year!
Enjoy the ride and take time to make some music. ~ Bob

Welcome to WA and congratulations on deciding to go Premium.

I had to look up "pedal steel guitar" on Google and Wikipedia. I see that steel guitars had their origins in Hawaii. I'm an English teacher living in Hiroshima, which has close connections with Hawaii and quite a few of my students go there to do homestay English courses. So now, thanks to your Profile, I have a new topic to talk to them about what to look out for while in Hawaii!

Anyway, all the best as you progress through the Certification Courses and apply the lessons to your niche blog(s).

Are you planning to build a niche blog around pedal steel guitars, by any chance?

Hi David. Well i'm impressed with your enthusiasm that made you want to check out the unique sound of the Hawaiian Steel Guitars. When i hear a Hawaiian song i think of Jerry Byrd and the infamous sound he created and so many players would try to copy the unique tone of his but few did. So this would make a great blog and i would love to read through it and see for the first time as it evolves from a Keyword to a Website. My Website I am very happy you mentioned this tonight. Thank you again Lisa

I hope things are going well Lisa! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance Lisa!

Kyle i tried to go premium with the help of my friends bank card, but it would not except her card on my account , but for personal reasons i do not have access to my debit or bank card until further notice from my bank. . Some serious investigating within the bank and mostly bank tellers that are under investigation with many scams and will bring many embezzlement charges b4 its over with. So i dont have alot of funds lol but what i do have i am not to spend or they might never know if any funds of mine were taken and if so i would lose any monies owed to me. I can hardly wait to go premium but a few more days and i will be okay. I was chompin at the bit to join and very upset that i have had to wait a few more days to join. So this worked out wonderfully for me cause i am stumped on lesson 8 for 2 days now...I don't have the Privacy Policy page to move to my sub menu although shouldn't i have it within my site somewhere?.Did we not do a template for PP in a earlier lesson that i can not find? So i didn't know if i should move forward so i'll wait until this is checked out.. Can somebody help me please? I'm so very thankful for the Premium use and the help from this community..Lisa

Hi Lisa,
Nice to meet you! When I first joined WA I was the same way. I was so excited about all the training and felt like I had to learn everything right away. Thankfully I realized that I could go back as many times as I wanted to a specific topic to make sure I understood everything. Enjoy the training and best of luck in all your endeavors.

Hi Lisa,

I KNOW what you mean!
Music is something that I could not live without!
I still have my REVOX which still works great, and I spent years recording my..better say taping, and making master tapes on my stereo system...basically when I was done with work...got stoned and now I listen to all of it...STILL! Its now almost 40 years ago!!
Cant stand that new stuff, at least most of it.

Thanks for the follow! I will return that favor!

hahaha i hear ya miami, i listen to all the 70s mostly, Spirit, Trower, Fogelberg,;EWF Marvin Gaye, and anything but todays music as well. i search all over the world and talk to my musician friends and find new but great music cause they are all great musicians.Speakinf of a reel to reel my daddy went in the studio in the 70s and due to a accident did not finish his demo.. Its on a reel to reel and we play in on our old TEAK and it still sounds remarkable. So thats pretty cool you recorded some stuff. i have some recordings on YOUTUBE and many hours of TV shows that we taped when i played with Porter Wagoner. So alot of those recordings are in the Gaylord archives and i cant seem to get ahold of them/ but i would love to hear some of your music sometime, do you play or sing? i got to finish my website or get it published.and i am needing to ask a question about my publishing the ;About Me. so ill talk with you soon and its nice to meet you. lisa

Hi Tom, Thanks for the page info i will surely check it out. Yes today's music has absolutely no feel in it it seems. I am fortunate to have grown up and lived through the 70s when music was at its best, i think anyway. So i'll check out your page and get back to you asap. Ok have a great day..!! Lisa ps. You should start your music up again. Good for the soul.!!

Thank you Lisa for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. If you need any help remember to post your question in the comments section or on live chat, and someone will be able to help you.

I created an informative training tutorial for all New Members that clearly explain the differences between the Certification Course and Affiliate Bootcamp.

I highly recommend that you do not start your WA training doing the Bootcamp. The Certification Course is the BEST option and I explain why in the following tutorial. If you have a few minutes free, give it a read and ask me any questions you may have within the comments section, and I will be happy to give you an answer.

Boomer i texted a reply back and it must have got lost so here it is again,. I am very happy to meet you and i did read up on your suggestion, i still have a few paragraphs to go but im in this to go all the way so i am soaking all this up and i did not know that Niches wewe so hard to come by..i have many Niches i want to work towards and im hoping that they will be good enough after i hears all the down side to the boot camp. i have many things to work with and i appreciate your input and really am glad you made me aware of what or when to do certain lessons. i will surely have many questions now so i will keep you busy too.lol.really im thrilled to know i can do this and i know i will have a very successful run at it and i will work as many hours and as much as need be to reach my goal. i want money of course but now im just wanting to learn all about AM and know i will survive and enjoy this ride cause its going to be a long but smooth ride for me. i am positive of this with WAs help and great support team. and i dont mean any thing bad by the way i mentioned the boot camp.lol but it sounds mean the way it came out but i have little time to fix and erase my text. i have to finish wy site.yippeee

Niches are not hard to come up with. People overthink the process and make it seem hard. When I read your WA Profile Description I see that you list at least 4 broad niche markets: Music, Cats, Horses and Fishing. Each one of them have at least a dozen sub niches each to choose from.
Reply
lstenpenny Premium
Hi boomer, That's why i said i had many Niches because of my work i have done. I had my own dog grooming business also. I know that people will spend more on their animals than their kids, some of them anyway, and that's something i have witnessed when i was a vet tech. I love my animals and if i had the money i would spend no telling how much on them, my kids are always number 1 though. .;lol. But even with the fishing, i was looking through a tackle box of mine that i hadn't been in for 17 yrs. and all the spinners baits and top water gigs. Man there was and is some great bait in that thing and that is some serious money right there..The grafite poles and the Reels. old Cardinal 4 was the only reel i liked to use. See i'm weird as the buyers are when it comes to being picky about certain things. I know everybody has a want in them and its just finding that sweet spot in a person to know what people will and won't buy. i intend to find out.lol. So i'm starting with my cases then i already have several more in my music list ready for a website. A new Website for each item is that how it works?. Or can you have like say a music store and have all those items listed on one website with sub-websites lol you know what i mean.like a drop down menu kind of thing. im sure i will understand more when im done with my lessons. I just got the templates and got them published so 'm onto 8th lesson i think. So Boomer thanks again and I need all the tips and help that is tossed my way and i'm off to my lesson for awhile. Have a great day ...Lisa

The problem many newbies have, especially those with many niche ideas, is that they tend to think of websites that will include all relevant items. An affiliate website on fishing poles should only contain content on poles and nothing else.

If you should want to include content for fishing reels then it would be best to create a separate website about fishing reels. Just because fishing poles and reels go together, they are separate niches and thus should be separate websites.

You will learn in the lessons how keeping your focus narrow is important to the success of your website. The niche of fishing, like many other niches, is too broad and needs to be focused on one particular product...like fishing kayaks.

Did you know that fishing kayaks can be a more profitable niche than certain other fishing niches? I did a post on my website about an affiliate program dealing in all kinds of personal watercraft used by outdoor enthusiasts. If interested, take a look.

Boomer thanks for your input on my Niches. i was scared a little bit thinking i didn't have enough of one thing; There is 1000 of cases in just music alone but i can have several different kinds of cases right? Or one link per Website or one kind of case per website i should say?? Can you clarify this Boomer. Keep me on track.lol
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
As for cases you would narrow it down to a specific type of case like guitar cases or drum cases. Then create a website on all of the different kinds and brands of guitar cases.

Hi, Lisa. Thanks for following me. Followed you back. Welcome to WA. You'll find that the community is very helpful when you have questions. I love music, too. Was a percussionist in HS and college. Played snare, tympani, and occasionally bells in concert band, snare in marching band and college orchestra. Haven't held a drumstick for about 40 years, though. My instrument now is my voice. I sing alto in the community chorus, and my church choir.

Hello Lisa!

I hope you're finding Wealthy Affiliate a fun place to be as well as all the learning you are doing!

A lot of new members are really hung up about making money right away and wondering if this training really works so I have compiled this list of success stories I've seen through the time I've been here for you to see how much and how long it takes for someone to make money: Please keep in mind that everybody's circumstance is different but the most important thing to remember is that if you want to see results (money), you need to put in the work. The more you work on your online business, the more you will see the money come in.

This is also why it's important to upgrade to a Premium account so you can gain the full benefits of the entire platform.

See the complete comparison of Your Free account to a Premium account here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/order/signup/a_aid/d6149715

You'll see all that you'll get when you upgrade to a Premium account in the following areas:
* Education
* Websites
* Hosting
* Site Content
* Community
* Support
* Success

Without Premium, you'll have a harder time making money, will take much longer, and you won't have the same support.

Anyway, think about it and your first month is super cheap at $19 which you really can't with everything that you get.

If you have any questions about picking a niche, please let me know and I can offer advice to you.

I'm here for you if you need me. Remember to have fun while you learn what you love to do, making money online! ;)

Talk soon,
Grace

This doesn't lol but its all falling into place now I have the best feeling about this move into AM. So i will be talking with you and the crew much in the coming days, weeks and future . jThank you for the pep talk. Till then..Lisa

You will see in a month's or two months' time how much you've done with your online business, you'll be very proud!

Looking forward to much more communication with you. :)

Hi Lisa, I'm so happy to hear about you liking the community here. :) That's also great you want to be an ambassador one day but don't make that your primary focus as the WA ranking here has nothing to do with our businesses - it's just a measure of your activity on WA and your participation of helping others. So if you're involved with the community here, you'll naturally climb up to ambassador status with time. Don't think that everyone up there is successful in their business, while some certainly are. :)

Just a little advice I wanted to give you as you start your new online business, which should always be your number one priority.... some folks lose sight of this and they wonder why they haven't made a dollar in 6 months.

I looking forward to helping you in your journey Lisa!
