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 nathaniell. I did have a wall or a block keeping me from understanding my personal niche.

I do have an idea I would like to run by you:

I am a fashion student and learning photography on my own. I would like my niche to be about becoming an expert in fashion photography. I have some experience with fashion styling and some experience sewing my own clothing, and I have just begun learning photography over the past six month.

My agenda is to talk about producing a photo shoot. This would including:

1) Networking: Finding models and stylists to produce the a shoot

2) Fashion: Giving expert advice on stylish trends, colour schemes, etc.

3) Photography: Discuss the equipment I use per shoot, the books and trainings I have/will undertake(n), and producing a great image with what I have learned.

ALL ON A BUDGET

I am not certain if this is too broad of a scheme. I know it will take a lot of work, but I am thrilled to undertake this project.

Is there any advice that you may have to give?

Thank you again!

I don't think it's too broad. There are TONS of amateur photographers out there (my gf is one), so they will definitely be searching for information online. My gf always complains that people ask her about tips on getting started, so there is absolutely an audience out there for new photographers trying to get started with their own home studio.

I wouldn't focus on "budget" though. It attracts customers trying to save money. Focus on people with money! You can of course talk about pricing in your articles and offer budget options, but I wouldn't make that the main idea behind your site.

BTW in case you missed the message, you also get free keyword searches in Jaaxy ( http://www.jaaxy.com ) that can help you with finding topics to write about on your website.

If you need some help understanding Jaaxy just respond to this message and I can send a training video to you.

Hey Nathaniell, I am focused on creating a website mainly about mens fashion. Are you familiar with selling things like clothes on ebay or amazon?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Personally, I recommend you do not create an 'online shopping mall' or ecommerce site for affiliate marketing. I've done it before, and I found that most people do no click from your blog to your shop to browse products.

You will have much more luck writing targeted blog posts and including specific affiliate links to products related to the topic. Remember, if you leave people to browse, many people will leave! You want to give them relevant information to their searches, and deliver relevant products.

That will convert much better into sales, and make better use of your traffic.

This whole process is explained in level 3 of your training. First, we need to focus on getting traffic! Once we get some traffic rolling into your site we will have a better idea of how to monetize your site properly.

The training is set up to build a strong foundation to your business. It's how I set up my first websites, so it's what I recommend you do as well :)

Ok. Thank you very much Nathaniel for making me feel at home. I do have a question... I read I will only be able to make 25 websites for free with (Wealthy Affiliate) & 25 websites using the site publix domain network... I thought website creation/building was unlimited? Are we just able to have active websites at a time?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
It used to be that it was unlimited, but almost no one used their unlimited sites! Now it's 25/25. If you point out on my site where it still says that, I'll be happy to change the language there!

But most people only need one or two websites to make money! If you have 25 websites and run out of space, you'll be making tons of money by then and can talk to Kyle/Carson about adding more website slots.
