Hello Mark, Nice to be connected!
♫Thank you for following me. ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA.
I am a fairly newbie to WA, but I have put my head into it and I am prepared to do the work needed to reach success.
My first road bump was to how to decide on a niche. I thought it good to write a post on how I got to a decision. Please read about it here and leave me a comment. Cheers for now.
….enjoy the WA journey

Hey Cobus,
Has your process found you a niche.? That's a great post to get people thinking, might want to follow up with some sort of a weening/thinning procedure. I remember when i started, Kyle seemed to be pushing for a fairly well defined group as a target niche. As I move forward I am constantly re-evaluating my choice of niche. All the best moving forward.

Cheers,
Mark

Thanks for the follow, Would be great to have some advice. I have to problems - I can afford $19 for premium, but will I be able to make anything to cover the next months subscription.

And will I be able to do this - if I am not a good writer - Please help - I am so unsure, and dont want to waste money, we allready dont have much going for us.

Would be great to hear from you.

Hi Maralleze,
You might not like what I have to say but here goes...
The chance of you making money in the first month is almost zero. Once you engage in the training you will realize this is far from a get rich quick scheme. You will have to work your 'you know what' off, if you expect to see any positive results. 6 - 8 months is a much more reasonable time frame.

If I was you, and I really wanted to do this...I would stick with the free membership until you are ready to go. Prepare yourself by reading books and ebooks that will improve your 'writing for the web' skills. Save enough ($350 USD) to pay for Premium Annual. That will give you lots of time to think about it.

This opportunity has the potential to make you a full time income. Success will not come without sacrifice.

All the Best
Mark

Hey Dennis,
Your message to me was flagged with a red 'new' sign. Did you go away for a bit and return. I've been here since last June, on the verge of making my first nickel. But I have enjoyed the learning process immensely.

Btw, your site is down. So, you starting from scratch now.? I see you originally started back in 2009. Perhaps we can exchange wisdom gathered from our journeys on here...

HI Mark,

Thanks for the feedback and I am now following you. I was reading your bio and was curious about what exactly you are doing as a health professional? I injured my back doing deadlift at the gym at 18yo and since then I was very passionate about health, fitness, muscles, yoga, anything related to the body actually and eating healthy. Believe me, I read SO MUCH on the internet about back problems since then lol.

I think we could have some interesting conversations since I always love to learn new things. I am in way better shape than I was for a long time (thanks to physiotherapists, the gym and yoga) and I can live normally without much pain but I still have symptoms like posture problems and sometimes slight inflammation.

Anyway great to meet you Mark!

Cheers,
Jp

Hi JP,
Good to meet you as well JP. That's awesome that you have chosen to take charge of your health. Being pro-active is so important. Sorry about the injury...but look what it has done to you..!! I work as a chiropractor and advocate an active lifestyle. Sounds like you are on it.!

One question regarding your site JP, do all drones come with built in cameras or is that an add-on..?

Cheers,
Mark

Jpmartel Premium
Hello Mark! many drones comes with built in cameras, some drones are built without cameras and can have a GoPro camera attached to it. The one with GoPros are a little bit expensive though. Some drone ( like the first one I bought ) has a "built in" camera but it is still an "accessory" which mean I can remove it and replace it by a new one in case it broke.

Yes, I did read your profile and know you live a colder climate than I do.

You have a lot of the same interests I do, except Golf and Snowboarding. Tried Golf once, never been on a snowboard.

I've always done a lot of reading, interest in health topics, and attempted to keep my mind active,body fit. even in my later years.

Just had a Stress Test 10 days ago.ordered by my Doctor, more of a let's us check and make sure your heart and arteries are healthy..Seen him last week and he told me he wish his heart and arteries were as healthy as mind.

Only medication I'm on is a 10mg Blood Pressure prescription, which he told me is more of a water pill and with be good for my kidneys as well.

Make me feel pretty good about my health regiment over the last 50 years.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

Hi,
Looks like you don't like vowels, of course, the other way around would be impossible to interpret!
Anyway, I see you have been with WA a while. Hope it is working out for you.
Though I am sure you are not timid, be sure to remember that one of the main assets of WA is the freedom to ask questions and then usually get help.

Hey Bob,
Vowels are a bit over-rated anyway.. About the questions, I have asked a few since starting (10), as well as when connecting directly with other WA members. I have been stuck a couple of times and the questions pulled me through..

Thank you for inviting me to follow! It has been quite overwhelming since I joined here a couple of days ago, not the least am I impressed by the sincerity of the people in this community. We are all uniquely different, coming from different backgrounds, but deep down we are all on the same journey. I came here by discovering WA through reviews, and once here, I like what I see. I will update my profile in the coming days and weeks, presenting my work. To me, the potential here is a new experience, a new route, so I will take one step at a time. I have never before felt motivation like now to get to know people in an online community, which oftentimes is not as convincing as this one. I look forward to this!

Yeah, it's pretty unreal how friendly everyone is but like you said, it's really nice and helpful, especially when things are going sideways on ya. I've had more than a few of those moments, lol.

It's only -10 today (but feels like -18) so that's a positive! My son has a hockey tournament this wkend and from what I've heard the arena is a barn arena and those are usually so bloody cold that you can see your breath when the outside temp is more than -15. The good weather came at the perfect time that's for sure!

Hoorayyyyyy!!! It's FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! This has been a brutal wk for me so today couldn't come fast enough, lol! Happy Friday Mark :)!!!

Have a great wkend!

How are things going for you with WA? You have been on here about 3 months longer than I have so I'd be interested in what you have experienced. So far it has been awesome for me, not all easy either. I struggle a bit with the technology but the training and community have definitely helped.

Just changed out my theme, so a bit of a do-over. I feel it is the right thing to do, as I have yet to really expose myself to the online world.

All the best with achieving your goals for 2017, one step and one day at a time..

Hey Mark,

The technology can be a little tricky when you're first starting out, but that's what's so great about WA. You can always find help within the community or by searching past trainings. Every step is a learning process but as long as you keep taking them, you're moving forward, right?

Yes, I started my journey here at WA a short while before you, last Spring, but I've had some prior experience in this business before joining. Since becoming a member, I really like the way my latest site is coming along, and I'm learning so many new things with the training provided at WA. The site is called My Natural Stress Relief and you can check it out if you like, there's a link on my profile page:)

Though I haven't really begun to monetize my current site, I'm strictly trying to load it up with content right now, I have made a few bucks off another review site that I built last year. It feels great, and I believe that if you can make even a few bucks in this business, scaling up is just a matter of continueing to learn new things and applying the knowledge!

I feel like 2017 is going to be an awesome year, and I hope you achieve all of your goals too!!!

I see you're beginning to work on a site in a niche that will interest many people as well, myself included. I'll check back later on as I look forward to hearing what you have to say regarding this subject.

Best of luck and keep up the great work!!!

Hi Mark, mine was not recent, it was 14 years ago, a coma for 4 months and then starting from an infant stage. It was an illness, not an injury. Very bizarre, so my challenge is memory. Have forgotten most of my life and today is just memory challenged so I write everything down or just re-read. Yet, had a very strong non-religious yet spiritual life prior so I am meditating and truly living in the moment as that is my life! I look forward to being back with WA.
Reply
mrkmccllch Premium
Hey Vicki,
I've always held the position that memory (both short and long term) is highly over rated, especially if it comes at the sacrifice of the present moment. So, I see that as your gift...living in the present moment, which can be pretty sweet at times..!!

Happy New Year

Hey there, mark fellow canadian

How are things? Good of you to drop by. I’m a newbie here, as you’re likely aware. So far, I haven’t made the first move to becoming a follower to someone else. The reason being is simple; I am new and am caught up in learning as much as I can. However, that being said, when someone offers to follow me, I take a few minutes to read their profile with the hope of connecting with them on some level. Then I take a few more minutes to drop them a line just so that they can know that I want to take a sincere interest in them. What’s your take is on that? I just moved from Calgary several months ago.

Very interesting company as well as useful insights on their site. https://www.kayakonlinemarketing.com You might find some useful info there.

In my experience... much of success, in life and business, is a mindset and commitment. Each new lesson and each new experience at WA are the building blocks of creating your own online destiny. WA provides the tools, the training and an amazing community of support. How you use them is up to you. Don't be shy... ask questions about those things you do not understand. Live chat is a quick way to get answers to your questions in the beginning.There are many experienced members that will step up to help when available.

The path to building your own business is filled with challenges yet so many possibilities. You will learn much here. Follow and master the lessons while gaining new skills and knowledge.

Hey Desmond,

All the best with your WA journey. Do you actually have time to work on an online biz...your profile suggests that you are very busy.

Read your post, "We're here to help!". Thought that was excellent. I was familiar with reciprocity but you added another dimension or two..!! Keep up the good work.

Cheers,
Mark

Hi Mark,

You're right, I've bitten a bit more than I chew. But, as you wrote, I keep trying to keep up the good work, off line as well as online.

Thanks for reading my post, hope it's helpful.

To our success,
Desmond

Thanks for the follow! I haven't seen many profiles that say they are here for fun, but I think that is the best way to go about it when beginning. That way you don't get burned out and can look forward to the next work session, because it is fun!

Hey, Mark, thanks for the follow, right back at you.
I am not a health care professional, but we do have a common interest in "natural health and wellness". That's my passion, my niche and what my website is all about.
I don't see any links to a website for you but I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
All the best.

Hey Merry, -25c in Calgary today, not sure how I feel about that..? With a bit of luck a warming trend will be upon us soon...I hope.

Just read your blog post, "A Wee Drop of Wisdom". So thx for kind of sharing your mistakes, the takeaway for me...Patience, good things take time.

Hi Mark! Thanks for following me. I'm still very new here. Only 1 day old. Still trying to understand the user interface, where the notification buttons are, how to reply, etc. Please pardon me if you wrote to me and I have not replied.

Once again, thanks! Always good to make a new friend. :)

Hey Jeha,
Welcome to WA, and good choice going Premium..
The WA puzzle will sort itself out in good time. The more you work at it the easier it gets. If you get stuck there are lots of others around to help and they're working on the same puzzle as you. As well they are busy blazing the trail you will soon travel.

Enjoy..!!

Hi Mrkmccllch
Nice to meet you. I reside in Georgia, Macon Ga which is 80 miles south of Atlanta. I'm new to Wealthy Affiliate and it seems like a great place to network and grow relationships with like minded individuals. It is such a pleasure meeting you and will chat in the near future.

Hey William,
Welcome to Premium and welcome back to WA. I too work as a chiropractor, here in Calgary, Alberta. Where do you practice and what school did you go to.?

I'm really just getting my feet wet at this point, looking to go in a bit deeper and put this opportunity to the test.

Cheers,
Mark

Mark, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend.

Calgary hey, I sort of know it as my sister lives there.

So what have you been doing since June. Looks like you have lots of friends. But do you have a website yet. (If you do and it is on your profile page, just ignore me. Website lists are randomly not appearing at the moment. One visit they are not here and the next, hey presto, they are.)

And I must ask what is that thing behind you!

Work hard, have some fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Hey Helen, Thanks for the poke.

I think I am avoiding the obvious...my missing website. I've also written 2 posts that are hidden in WP somewhere. You may be just the person i need for a bit of accountability. My site is poor at best, after doing a number of reviews of other's sites I'm getting a taste of what appeals to me.

Before health care I worked as a geologist out of Calgary doing well site work and as a student some very interesting mineral exploration projects. Kimberly and area is a very nice part of the world. I've snowboarded, mountain biked and golfed in the area.

That thing behind me is a King Kong replica (I'm in his hand), came across this one in the largest mall I have ever seen, in Panama City.

So, guess I'm kind of stuck right now. Any comments are welcomed...

Cheers,
Mark

Too bad Kimberley had to shut down due mainly to hot muck but also the mine was running out. However they have done a job on the town and ski hill.

I must admit I don't like the ski hill anymore; it's too commercial.

As for comments just yell when you need them. I will try to fit some time in for you.

You get stuck you ask ok.
Enjoy your day.

Hello Mark,♫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 (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

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! :)

Hey Kyle,

The niche I have chosen is, "Aging - with Health and Wellness". Hoping to grab the attention of the baby boomer audience. I've set a deadline of next Thursday to have a website up, possibly not polished but something to begin this process.

Cheers,
Mark M

What aspect of aging do you want to help people with?

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. :)

Narrowing down a niche.
Answering your question: "I want to help people that can still help themselves."

Help themselves from what? Why?
Reply
mrkmccllch Premium
To help themselves from the ravages of aging in an effort to avoid pain/discomfort and to live to their highest potential.

How important is the suffix on the domain name, e.g. .com, .org, .net etc. The .com seems to be more difficult to acquire.

What aspect of aging? This pretty much encapsulates every ailment, so you will want to narrow things down a little bit.
