About MnS050817
Joined January 2018
In the last year, my wife and I have been through more tragedy and loss than any other couple that I have spoken to. In November of 2016, our youngest daughter (she was 17, one week away from 18) passed away from childhood cancer. We both lost our jobs in February, just a few days before a 5000 acre fire came through and burnt everything to the ground. We then had to move into my parents basement at 44 years old. We refuse to give up, and we know that there is nothing that can keep us from success other than ourselves.

Hi! Mark,

Sorry to hear the loss of your loved 17-year daughter.

Tracy related your passion on cancer as evidenced in your bio and ask me if I would like to network with you. Of course, I love to. To shift if mine fits yours, please go to www.ebettercare.com and www.formefirst.com. If yes, I am ready to join you.

Best,


Chin

Good Morning Chin!

I just read your message this morning. However, being new to WA, I am not sure what you mean by networking. If you could explain to me what you mean by this, I would appreciate it.
If there is any way that we can team up and make a difference for even one person, then we are all for it! Our passion is personal, as is yours.

Many Blessings to You,
Mark & Sherry

Thank you Mark for the follow and many blessings to you here at WA. When first starting your affiliate marketing website many members have problems coming up with niche ideas.

Probably the one main problem is that people tend to over-think the simple process of finding a niche. Just sit back and look around you. You have niches everywhere. You are even wearing different niches.

Though it is important to fully understand that any niche can be profitable, there are certain niche markets that will be more profitable than others. You might think that the market is saturated but there is plenty of room to earn.

The niches in these 2 types of profitable categories (Evergreen and Passions) are plentiful and broad. Like all niches they will need to be narrow and focused. The more they are, the more profitable they become.

I created a tutorial that explains the differences in these two groups and provide you with many niche and sub niche ideas for each category. If you are having problems choosing a niche, click the link below.

I'm at a loss for words, Mark...that you and your wife managed to find the strength to move forward is truly incredible. I have no doubt that you will have a positive impact on the lives of so many people. I'm honored that you have added me to your network.

This is an incredible platform, so make sure to take in all that it offers; the best way would be to establish a schedule for yourself. Even if you do not have a regular 9 to 5 job, you want to make sure to factor in "down time" so you don't become burnt out.

Here are some success stories from fellow WA members to give you additional inspiration:

I set up a website under the "Get started here" and then decided that I would move over to Affiliate Bootcamp. Upon following the directions the option was to pick free domain. As I went into site content to set up website it only gave me the option for the original site, I am unable to select the website I am working on because it does not appear under site content. What have I done wrong and how do I fix it?

I'm not 100% I fully understand the issue. All of your websites should appear under the Site Rubix blue button to the left, under Site Manager, and not Site Content. Site Content is just a page or post drafting page prior to publishing on your website. But to login to your website's CMS you need the Site Manager option. I hope that helps? Apologies if I've misunderstood. :-)
Kind regards,
Sean

Thank you for your replay, We were able to get a solution through site support. It was human error... mine.

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! My wife and I are doing this together and we are going to give it a serious try.
We have decided on two niche ideas, I would like to get your feedback on one of them. The niche I choose for myself was World War II. I have had a love affair with it since I was 9 years old. I am not sure how who or what to affiliate with such a topic.
Should maybe I pick another niche to get the ball rolling at first, and then do this niche?
Thank you for any input you may have.

This is going to be covered later on in the training, your first focus is going to be the foundation for your business, the content, the rankings and the traffic. Without traffic, there is nobody to promote to.

There are going to be many things that you can promote to this audience. As an affiliate, you have access to over 550,000,000 different products/services that you can promote (basically anything)

As you move into Level 3 of the training, the "make money" part and the various aspects of monetization are going to be covered in detail.

Continue through the training, take action on the lessons and you will see your business piece together.

Hey there - you guys are awesome for not giving up. I am sorry about your loses. And offer my sincere condolences.

Sometimes when you are at the bottom - the only way you can go is up.

I wish you every success. Just stick to the training. You will be fine.

What niche have you chosenjoy by the way?

MnS050817 Premium
Thank you for your condolences. You are correct, we can only go up from here.
We have just started and have not completely decided on a niche yet. We are definitely open to suggestions

Hi there, I have been thinking about niches you could get into.

My first thought is homes - You know what it's like to be homeless. You know peoples pain - you know what it's like to move back with the folks, how you want better for your kids, what it's like to loose everything. Did you get the diamond traffic from Kyle? In there it has suggestions on homes. I thought of these...

Finding local homes to rent
Mini Homes
Mobile homes - including riverboats
Minimalist living

another few thoughts...

Insurance of homes/valuables etc - if you loose everything

Preparedness for a disaster - affiliate for disaster packs and products that you used or wish you had had.

Maybe you have a hobby? I combined my cake decorating with travel and art.

Or just chose a product theme like ebooks and then set up a woo commerce site - just to learn the ropes before attempting anything else. Jay has got 2 videos on this. It's easier as it's not too personal.

Would love to hear what you settle on.

Wishing you all the best.

Wow, those are some really terrific ideas. (This is Sherry by the way)
After all we have been through in this past year, one would think at least one of these would have been our first thought. Maybe, we just subconsciously just avoided them. They are good ideas however.
I do appreciate the input, however, I do believe we are going in another direction. I want to help people in a different type of situation. My daughter suffered 3 1/2 years with childhood cancer and as you have read we lost her. While she was battling there were no real resources for me. People were very quick to jump in and by her all kinds of material things, but what she (we) needed was a cure. There are no programs out there that are willing to do research for cures if the child is diagnosed terminal with a rare cancer (which of course she had). She was the only teenage female in the United States ever diagnosed, if I understood them correctly and only 31 cases in the world of teenagers being diagnosed with this particular cancer (99% being males).
St. Jude is an awesome research hospital but they rejected her because there was absolutely no cure. They didn't even see her in person and made that decision.
I want to find a niche that will focus on rare childhood cancer, not for profit ( not that I would mind earning some extra cash) but that will profit these children, and so another mother doesn't have to sit by helpless and watch her child suffer and then bury her. It is by far the worst heartbreak in the world, one I may never recover from.

Hi Sherry

Funny enough - I had thought of something like that too, but was hesitant to suggest it. Everyone is different.

I think it would be an awesome thing to do.

Why don't you do that and get your husband to do another niche. After all, the bills still need paying. You can help each other learn what needs doing. Also once you have learned how to do an about page for example, doing two won't be such a big deal.

Wishing you all the best!

You can do this!

Thank you, and indeed we did come from your blog. My wife was searching and stumbled across a scam and through research, I came across your blog.
I intentionally search for a reason to believe WA was a scam and have been unsuccessful thus far, so here we are.
Again many thanks.
