Thank you so much for the follow, Christina!

I am liking it a lot so far. I think the training is well put together, so I feel like I am in good hands here at WA. I am not very tech savvy, so it feels good to have been able to build a web-site.

How about you? Your web-site looked very good and well put together. I like the niche, you have chosen.

Best of luck to you as well!

Thank you, Alex - that is nice of you.

All is well so far. Today I bought a domain, and build the basics of my first web-site, so that is a very exciting step.

I hope to make small improvements and advances like that every day.

Wishing you a nice day!

Hi Mark,

thank you for the welcome greeting!

I have only been with WA for a week, but I have already got the impression, that this is significantly different from other similar offers out there.

Especially the access to help when needed. Thank you for offering yours.

All the best,

Stine

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! :)

Hi Kyle,

I was going through the "niche" training yesterday, and I do have some questions.

For the past year, I have been nurturing the following ideas:
I currently live in Thailand, and right now, I am working on writing a book about Thai food. It is a slow process, as the project requires, that I learn to cook Thai. But I am determined to reach my goal of publishing the book, and I am making small progress towards it each week. At the same time, I would like to create a web-shop, where I can sell Thai kitchen utensils and other crafts related to cooking. I am also playing with the idea of making small films with tips and tricks about Thai cooking.

Thai is first on the list, but my long term plan for this web-site, is to also add other countries. Next would be Nepalese food + crafts, then perhaps Italian etc.

Now that I am learning about the affiliate aspect of making money online, I immediately thought, my niche should be "Thai cooking". That way, I can collect a list of followers, who I can promote my own products to, when I am ready to go live with that.

But.... I am afraid, it will in a way be doing things double. That the the Thai content I am preparing for the "world food" web-site, will then already be used on the Thai cooking affiliate marketing site. Perhaps the question will be answered, as I learn more about the affiliate marketing, and get a better understanding of what content I have to produce and send out to attract followers. But I just wanted to hear, what your thoughts are?

Perhaps, "Thai cooking" is even to broad for a niche? Should I rather choose something narrower like "What are the health benefits of coconut oil?"
Or choose a totally different topic like "How to get rid of wrinkles?", as with every birthday, that is something I am becoming more and more interested in. :-)

I am sorry, if this got a bit long winded, but I wanted to try to give you the full picture, of what I have am thinking about.

Kind regards,

Stine

Absolutely Stine. I think that type cooking would be the natural direction that you head and I know many people that struggle trying to make a good Thai Meal (thus go out to dine instead).

I would personally cook more Thai food if I had a resource that I can utilize to learn it.

Thai Cooking Guru

That is just an idea of the direction that you could head with your niche, but I think you can see where I am heading with this. Go for it!

Hi Kyle,

thank you for your feedback!

"Thai Cooking Guru" - I quite like that, even thought I don't quite feel like a guru just yet. But I certainly aspire to become one.

It would also be my pleasure to teach you how to cook a well tasting Thai meal.

Thank you for the input - I will sleep on it. :-)

You don't start off as one, you become one. That will happen through time.

MissNielsen Premium
Thank you, Kyle - however, I feel a bit uncomfortable calling myself a guru....
How about "Best of Thai cooking"? Do you think, that would work? It seems like that domain is available, and it is actually what I would Google, if I was to search for information about Thai cooking on the internet. And I also want to bring the best to people out there. :-)
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, definitely. Absolutely a direction you can head and many things that you can talk about in this space as you immerse yourself.

When I go to do research on a given niche to come up with concepts for keywords (and ultimately content), I ask a few questions of my niche.

**What are some products/services that people are purchasing in your niche?
**What are some questions they are asking?
**What are some problems they are having?
**What are some "how to's" that are useful?
**What are some trending topics in your niche?

Do some research, in could be as simple as a Google search to uncover a lot of these items. I personally start off my keyword research using this technique: This will open your doors to essentially unlimited ideas and concepts, from there you can plug in these keywords into a keyword tool like the one here at WA or Jaaxy.com. Hope this helps you out here Stine!

Thank you, Kyle - that is a great help. I will go for that! :-)

Thank you also for the advise regarding keywords. I will have a closer look at that.

Hi Kyle,

I hope, you are doing well, and enjoying the holiday season.

I have a question regarding my theme.
I started out with one, followed your instructions to remove the default Hello world etc. and it all worked fine.
A few days later, I came across a theme, I thought was better suited for my cooking niche, so I changed it. On this new theme, I am not having success in removing the default pictures and text. I mean, I have done it as advised, but the text and pictures are still there..... Not sure, what to do about that. Should I care at this point, or will it work itself out at a later time? I mean, will I be able to just replace the pictures and text with my own?

It is a little misleading to have posted the "about" info on my Thai cooking page, and then there is a picture with an Italian pizza next to it.....

Another issue is, that on the privacy policy page, viewers are allowed to leave a comment. As I understand from the training, that shouldn't be possible on a page, only a post. Do you know, how I can change that?

Please advise.

Kind regards,

Stine

Some themes have default images within their theme that are not edited by removing the content. You will have to go into the Theme Customization (usually under Appearance => Themes) and manage it there.

If you cannot figure this out and this new theme is too awkward to use, you might want to choose a new one.

And I agree, you don't want pizza next to your Thai food! lol

Thank you, Kyle - I would like to keep this theme, as it seems perfect for food blogging. So, I have tried to work my way through it - and things are beginning to come together.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas!

Hi Kyle, I hope, you are doing good.

I am a bit frustrated with the lesson about Google+ (Course 2, lesson 9).
I already had a gmail account, so connecting to Google+ was easy. But that is an account in my name - not related to my WA web-site project. I don't understand how I get that set up/make that connection.....? My niche is Thai food, so that needs to be my profile in Google+ - not my private name. A video tutorial in that lesson would have been helpful. Is there any other training made, that can elaborate a bit further, and "take me by the hand" in setting it up, and also in understanding why G+ is even necessary? That was a bit cloudy too for me in that lesson. Thank you in advance.

Hi Stine,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! Great to have you on board :)

You'll probably experience a bit of information overload in the first few days. There is a lot of training and resources in here.

I suggest you start with the Online Entrepreneur Certification: If you would ever get stuck, let me know. I'm here to help!

Cheers,
Ronnie

Hi Ronnie,

thank you so much for reaching out!

In the past year, I have tried other offers, but not to much success.

I just stumbled over WA, and at first glance it seems to be, what I have been searching for, so I feel excited and motivated to dive in and start learning.

Thank you very much for your advice on where to start and your offer of assistance.

Best wishes to you also!
