Hey Susie! How is everything going?

Still looking Derek. I love the idea of sewing but cant pinpoint specific niche yet. Should I just start blogging without thinking too much of specific low competition keywords...

I just did keyword research on "free sewing patterns." It brings in A LOT of traffic, and there is some competition but it's under 300 QSR (Quoted Search Results).

It seems like you would really enjoy the sewing niche, and there is definitely potential. When you are first starting out, it can be good practice to just write whatever you feel like (just to get the ideas flowing) but generally speaking, you should always focus on keywords.

I would focus on some back-end efforts in regards to your website. Make sure you have a privacy policy, an "about me" (focusing on sewing), etc.. Get the look you want, and then you can start figuring out how to fill it with posts.

Do you have a website yet?

Hi Derek, thanks so much. Sorry for the late reply. Seriously thinking of getting a website up soon and purchase a domain with a dot com. Would it help if my domain has the keyword in it or can I just put any name that I like?

That's great news!

Putting the main keyword in the domain name makes it easier for you to rank for your niche specific posts. It will also improve your CTR (Click Through Rate). When people are searching for sewing patterns they are more likely to click on a site that features the word "sewing" in the name.

However, you want your domain to be memorable so you can get return visitors. Something like "sewingwithsusie.com" (if you are still pursuing the sewing pattern niche).

Keep me posted on your progress!

Hi Kyle, thanks for asking. I am torn between signing up for the premium and getting my new sewing machine that I've been saving up for. Really I want this to work out for me , I mean getting paid online. But my time is running out, I have about a day before your offer expire. I will definitely signing up Kyle. I have curtains to sew, loads of them so I will make whatever time left I have to learn from WA. I hope you be patient with me cause I am nervous about the whole thing..not knowing what to ask and interact and be equally helpful with others. I may be slow but I will catch up. Thanks Kyle.

Maybe a natural niche for you to head into would be sewing/making curtains/etc. This way you can have fun doing something you are passionate about and create a business doing so. :)

I know you are going to love Premium and I really do look forward to working with you!

How are things going Susie? I see that you have completed your account setup. This will result in a lot of new friend requests from other members of Wealthy Affiliate. That means your network is going to get bigger.

Having a large network is crucial when you are starting out with an Internet Marketing career. It allows you to ask questions as they arise. Don't be shy about asking a lot of questions! Everyone has gotten stuck at some point or another, so you'll find the members here are always willing to help (because they were once beginners too).

Always feel free to contact me directly if you need any help.

Hi Derek. Thanks. I was thinking of creating a website offering free templates/patterns so people could learn how to sew cool stuffs like handbags, carry all bag, pouches and purses/wallets and I thought that the best keyword would be sewing patterns because the last time I checked monthly searches are high and the QSR is lower than 300. I also checked a domain sewingpatternsforfree dot com is available. What do you think? I am very nervous about the whole idea of getting myself into internet marketing as I do not have any technical background.

Hey Susie,

I think that niche sounds fantastic! Very original! I was concerned about monetizing that niche (considering you'll be giving away patterns for free), but I found an affiliate program for you (for when you're ready to monetize. Don't rush it).

You don't need to be nervous! Just take your time, learn as much as you can, always take action, and most importantly, CONTINUE to learn.

Cheers to your initiative! Don't be a stranger!

Yeah, that niche would definitely work. Don't worry about a specific keyword when choosing a domain, it will be the content on your website that leads to rankings and you can target as many keywords as you want as you build out your site Susie.

I definitely think your niche could be a good one and I would move forward with that. Here is some training on how to choose a good domain: Hope this helps you out. :)
