About MForstner
Joined November 2017
Since 2010 I've been writing content for Websites, creating ghostwritten engineering B2B Copywriting content for blogs and e-books, additionally doing my own photography as well. Now the time has come to step up the game a few notches. I'd like to start making an income via affiliate marketing. I've figured out all the pieces but need to figure out how to put it all together. Looks like this may be the place to get that information to make that a reality.

We are almost identical in our goals and # of hours per week that we can commit. I have actually been tracking my time in an excel spreadsheet to "keep me honest" about reaching my weekly hours goal. I hope that is a helpful tip for you as well.

Best of luck to both of us as we move forward.

Looking forward to see how you put it all together.

I am in a program learning to be a Travel Writer/Photographer. My next website is to have a community that will follow my adventure stories (content) to tropical destination's around the world and sell my images. Do affiliate marketing for camera equipment and accessories, as we'll as travel booking for Lodging.

I'm so excited about it. I hope to learn from you how to put it all together.

I wish you great success and a prosperous future.

Yes, I'm working a bunch of different angles trying to put it all together and pull if off by the end of this year. Every day brings a series of different successes and emotions!

When you wrote about being a Travel Writer/ Photographer that got me excited about that again. I took a course a while back but didn't follow through with the writing but I am still doing lots of photography. I taught my wife and now she is doing better at that than I, at least she is selling photos for stock. She has a more creative eye I think.

I am wishing you great success with affiliate marketing for camera equipment, accessories and travel booking for lodging. That is such a fun and exciting niche. You could easily get to point where you can travel and stay for free at the beach of your choice!

Curious....let me know which course you are taking in a private message.

Cheers,

Mike

Hello Mike And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined way back in 2017 you will no doubt have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.

You are correct Robert. It has been a steep learning curve and it doesn't seem to be getting any less steep anytime soon.

I will gladly check out your posts.

Thank you,

That's great Mike. Good approach. What some do is rewatch the training before moving forward. That's the beauty of this platform. You can learn at your own pace and seek the help of a caring community.

Thank you Mike for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. As a Premium Member you are now in the process of creating content for your affiliate marketing website.

It is important to fully understand how you should go about creating that content that will produce high Google rankings. Using low competition keywords is only a small part of the process.

Google has a set of guidelines for people creating content on their affiliate marketing websites. They do not like affiliate sites that are heavy on the selling and light on the help.

Though this may not occur to you in the beginning of your affiliate marketing journey, offering help instead of selling to your website visitors will yield more sales.

When you have some time, read the brief training at the link below which will explain Google's guidelines in a more simplistic way. When you help instead of sell, you will see better results.

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! :)

Thanks Kyle. I just signed up for the Premium service. Haven't had as much time to move forward with the program recently as I had hoped but am in the process of choosing a niche. Unfortunately my interests are different than most so I'll need to focus a bit more on a money producing niche rather than a passion. I have a nice camping website already with a nice level of organic traffic and would like to make into more of a money producer in the future once I figure this system out. My goals/steps are as follows:
-Find a money producing niche
-Create a site.
-Write autoresponders.
-Learn how to set up the upsell process
-Learn about how to set up sales funnels
-Learn how and where to place ads.
-Once that all works create a second site, differnet niche, perhaps look into seasonal products.

It looks as if all the tools and help are available here to do that. getting something set up before Christmas would be nice!

Congrats on going Premium Mike, I know you are absolutely going to love it. In the coming days, weeks and months ahead you are really going to see your business start taking shape. I can't wait to see it unfold.

You have everything you need here at WA now, take action, work hard, stay persistent and ask for help if you ever feel even remotely stuck. Lots of help here!

All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 3.75 BILLION people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

PS. I hope you have an absolutely brilliant weekend ahead! :)
