About Matstabler
Joined January 2017
Hey there,


I'm very new to this affiliate stuff, and so still getting my head around it all. I've thought of my niche, and now thinking about creating some exciting and interesting content in order to drive business. Maybe a little bit ahead of myself but we'll see.

I am 35, I have right sided hemiplegia(cerebral palsy) and as such finnd it hard to find other work. I currently work full time already in a job I have had since 2001, but I would like to turn my passions into a business and step away from being employed. Having researched things a bit decided to take the dive into Affiliate marketing.

I have just purchased a house so any extra could come in very handy, and I love learning about other opportunities.
I have also been learning to trade Forex for about 8 months now, so maybe affiliate items along those lines might work?

Update 12 June 17

I have now been at WA for around 5 months (4 with a proper website tbh) and although I haven`t earned any money as yet, I have obtained a wealth of knowledge about things like:

SEO
Customer psychology
Website building

There is far more to affiliate marketing than meets the untrained eye, and its not a scheme, is a business plain and simple (and complex lol)

Thank you for reading and also your support!

Thank you very much Jeff.

I have been here just over 2 months, so still very green although it feels like I have learnt alot I am quite clearly still a newbie learning from my mistakes(some of them seemingly major but fixable) and some of them not so major.

Sometimes AM does feel a bit like an esoteric art that i cant really understand, and other times I feel I have AHA moments.

Thanks again

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

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made 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 on the 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

Hi again Mathew it’s a good idea (only if you want to) to click the 'Like' icon within a comment if you like it as I have done with yours.
Obviously you don't have to click every single comment or you will be here all day doing nothing but.
But to click the ones you like that are replies to your own comments will be reflected in your WA ranking because it shows you are getting involved with the community.
Enjoy your day.

Some things take time, just allow it to come and don't fret. There will be things that inspire you and you will get a natural feeling for them. Keep up with the training and if you get really stuck go to the bootcamp training.

Matstabler Premium
Thanks Kyle!

Yeah I am just sure how long it'll take to even get traffic to my site! Obviously, I'm working on content first and foremost.

To be honest, without an audience, there is no point in me trying to monetise, so I'm just treating it like a personal blog. I've go another site registered here which im going to work on also so we'll see.

I just don't want to rush anything and make it the best I can, and be helpful to people.

Thanks again,

Mat
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, exactly the case. Traffic doesn't happen overnight and if you are looking to race to success, it won't happen this way. The breakthrough point for a new website is usually around the 3 month mark and that is really when you will start seeing some penetration into the search engines.

Take action on the training and continue to move forward with the content production on your website, you are going to do just fine. Remember, you are building a foundation that will set you up for a long term business here Mathew! :)
Reply
Matstabler Premium
Thanks, Kyle.

Tbh I thought as much. It's a shame because I'm so passionate about tech. I'm not sure how to narrow it down!!! My main passion is TVs and air receivers. Hmmm. I'm thinking I should perhaps start from scratch?

What does everyone think?

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! :)
Reply
Matstabler Premium
Well thanks again Kyle!

I do have a Niche in mind, and you can (if you would like to of course) take a look at the site I am working on) my link is in my blog!

One thing does concern me at the moment: Have a chosen a Niche that is too large(that is to say, way too many products to focus on)?

I would appreciate your feedback!

Thanks again
Reply
Kyle Premium
A niche can honestly be anything, what are you passionate about? What are you interested in?

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. :)
Reply
Matstabler Premium
Thanks Kyle! That's very useful. I have chosen home electronics as my niche. Think anything from coffee machines to TVs.
Broad enough to encompass lots of products (and I love gadgets!) yet, because I'm super passionate about it,I feel I can create some interesting and informative content.

I am really trying to focus on the content right now, because I'm concerned without it, I won't be indexed.

I really must say thank you to everyone who has reached out to help or just say hi. WA is such a great community,and I look forward to helping others where I can in the future.
Reply
Kyle Premium
I would recommend that you narrow it down a bit, what aspect of "home electronics" do you want to help people out with? Even TV's is too broad of a niche, you can narrow things down here drastically.
