Hello Mark and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and had a look round you will perhaps come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
You have decided to follow me and I will return the favour.
Enjoy your day.

I hope you do, too! Have a fabulous day!

As a side note, my son is watching me write this. He thinks you look like one of the actors in a Goosebumps movie he recently saw.

Thank you for your service to our country, first, as a teacher and, lastly, as a Soldier!

I make it a habit to thank my children's teachers every chance I get, because teachers are the unsung heroes of our nation. I recently retired from the US Army in Jan 2015 with 21 years. I've been very fortunate and truly believe that the Army and my country has given me more than I can ever pay back. My country doesn't owe me for my service. I owe my country for my service!

Best wishes to you!

Darren

Thank you very much. The times have changed on how today's veterans are treated compared with those during Vietnam (it has improved dramatically). All the best to you, Mark

Hello Mark,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Good morning Mark,

Last year did a beautiful trip in the US, from Denver to Seattle and everything in between. But as your country is so big there is very much left to be seen, also Texas, oh well, perhaps next time.
Thank you for the follow and good luck.

Regards, Taetske

Thanks for the add here, and I have done the same...

In reading your profile my attention was raised with the Nuclear Unit in Germany portion...

Where were you at M8?

I was in 59th Ordinance Brigade for years and started at the 74th USAFAD in Bavaria as a young lad in the late 70s...

Over 8 years I was in 3 units...

(1) Outside of Augsburg in a place called Klosterlechfeld, and a site outside of Kempton, in real southern Germany...

(2) Guenzberg (near Neu Ulm), where I had 7 units spread throughout Bavaria, and in

(3) Pirmasens, Germany at the HQ of 59th Ord Bde (close to the French Border was where I lived, used to jog into France a couple times a week hehe)...

Good times when I think back....Lots of good people and good beer!

Cheers and all the best here for you....

Hi Dave
5th Artillery Unit in Buren (east of Essen). We had 14 detachments scattered across northern Germany. You're a drop shipper?
Reply
DaveSw Premium
Great Mark, I think that was one of the groups we had at the HQ in Pirmasens...Used to love the TDY at that assignment hehe, I was on the road 5 days a week traveling all over Germany (I was a logistics dude)...

Yes, I am doing drop shipping, using AliExpress for product and selling at a higher price, and keeping the difference after the overhead...

If you want to get a good idea on more specifics, I recommend looking at Robert's website which has more information on US drop shipping companies...

Since you are in Texas, this makes sense and delivery times will be shortened a lot likely...That is the tall pole in the tent, over and above good product, good supplier, and, and, and...

My recommendation would be to find GOOD wholesale companies to work with (there are many that are intermediaries and then the profit gets sucked out by them)...

Robert's profile is here...Drop him a line!

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 for the message Kyle. I have 2 questions:
1. About 2 months ago I was going to start my affiliate website and I did start with a domain from Godaddy, but I never made a website. Can I use the domain with WA?

2. How does a niche for golf accessories & golf novelties?

Thanks again, Mark

1. About 2 months ago I was going to start my affiliate website and I did start with a domain from Godaddy, but I never made a website. Can I use the domain with WA?

Yes, of course. You will just need to update the DNS settings and you will be able to use your domain with the hosting here.

The DNS is also known as the "nameservers" and these are what tell your domain to look for your website, which in this case is going to be the hosting here at WA.

Here are your DNS settings again (also within that tutorial):

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

You can update this within your domain registrar (where you bought the domain). Upon doing so, you will be able to start building your website here within 24 hours, the time in takes for your new nameserver settings to propogate.

Let me know if you have any further issues.

2. How does a niche for golf accessories & golf novelties?

What type of golf accessories or novelties? I would narrow this 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. :)
