About MaggieJoy
Joined May 2015
After selling my transcription and captioning business, I became interested in affiliate marketing. Followed a couple of "gurus," pursued some shiny objects, and actually learned just a little bit. I figured it was time to finally gain the skills to actually succeed at this business.

I'm really glad to have come across Wealthy Affiliate and very happy to be a part of this community -- looks like this is the right place.

Best success and blessings to you all!

Hi Maggie! Great spring, summer, & harvest blog. Gotta plant it, protect it, and tend to it before you can expect to harvest it.

Looking forward to seeing your blog listed in the right sidebar of your profile here!

Best of luck ~ Dennis

Sounds like it has been quite a journey to find your way here to WA Maggie, but I am glad you did.

There definitely are a lot of scams and programs that simply do not teach you what you need to know out there. It sounds like you may have run into one or more of these on your way to making it here at Wealthy Affiliate. I can assure you that much brighter days are ahead now that you have found WA and I really do look forward to working with you.

If you ever need anything at all going forward, I am personally here to help you out so feel free to drop me a reply to this post or you can find me in chat (I am frequent there).

PS. I hope you are having an awesome week thus far!

MaggieJoy Premium
Yes indeed :) ... Luckily, I got frustrated early enough that I got out before ever building one of those sites and maybe failing with it. It gives me something now to write about and I found my way to WA, so it's okay after all.

I will definitely be calling on you, Kyle, and thanks for your help. I'm have a very good week, and hope you are too.

Hey Maggie, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

Hey Nathaniell. Thanks for checking in. I'm okay as far as niche, but confused as to approach. I was planning to build a site around one digital product, try to find a close to exact-match URL, write articles and drive traffic. Or, maybe I should build a larger, more general site in the same niche and offer multiple related products. Confusion - First, would a "sniper" site work (and does this approach work at all?), or would a larger site be a better idea as my first site? Second, if I go for a broader site in the women's health niche, wouldn't I still be better off with a close to exact-match URL? If so, how do I choose that?

I appreciate your help. Hope you're having a wonderful, productive day.

MaggieJoy ;-)

I would definitely go for a slightly broader niche where you can promote multiple products. If you are too focused, there's very little to write about! Since we are relying on content to drive traffic to our site (not backlinks), we need lots of topics for our site.

You also do not need an exact match URL. This is an older technique, that while it can work, doesn't work as well as it used to. It sounds like you were learning from Google Sniper which is an older product and still teaches some of these things that we don't use any more in WA.

Just go with a catchy domain name, and you'll be fine. Exact match is good too, but they are hard to find!

Looks like I have some unlearning to do! Thanks for your help, Nathaniell.

Haha. No worries. If you have any questions let me know. I started learning about 5 years ago, so had plenty of unlearning to do myself!

I'm thinking of finding another niche for now, one that might allow me to promote more products and is not so challenging as what I had in mind. :-)

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Maggie!

Nathaniell here - you probably remember me from my site One More Cup of Coffee. I'm glad to see you've signed up and are ready to get started building your online business.
