Hey everyone! Names Jaylin but you can just call me J for short if you like.

I'm completely new too affiliate marketing and making money online in general, but I've actually been paying attention to Wealthy Affiliate for about a year now. I discovered it through another link somewhere else about a year ago and got curious. Doing more research here I decided this was something I wanted to try. But I wasn't ready at the time so I waited for a while, but now things in my life have gotten a lot crazier. I'm doing this for a multitude of reasons.

1. To help my family out financially and contribute my share.
2. I've got little else to do and I need a source of income of my own.
3. The educational opportunities presented here were just too good to pass up.
4. The ability to make money so I can do more things I want and start living my life the way I want too.

Aside from my problems though, I'm actually quite passionate about a number of things.

1. If you couldn't tell from my profile picture, I love video games.
2. Animation is something I've always loved and had a strong fascination in.
3. Television. No not just plopping my but on the couch and watching, but everything that goes into its' production as well. This also extends too
4. Film.
5. Music. Not only do I make it every now and then (only have four songs though) but I'm also very emotionally connected to the music I listen too. It actually does have a strong affect on my emotional state.
6. Technology and all of its' innovations, especially when it comes to nanotechnology and robotics!! I get excited just from thinking about it.
7. Mental Health and psychology. Being one who suffers and has to deal with Mental Illness myself, naturally I read up a lot on the subject and it's something I like to talk and help others with.
8. Sex. Specifically Sexology. I know this already sounds crazy to you guys, but I really love studying the mindset behind human sexuality and how people express it in a multitude of ways including in their relationships and kinks.
9. Culture and alternate lifestyles that may be unusual and perhaps socially taboo. Hence social issues are something that is very important to me as well particularly when it applies to minority groups.

I look forward to interacting with this community. I don't really know anyone yet, but you all seem like great people. I'm hoping that with everyone's help I'll be able to eventually have a successful business. Now I don't expect to start making money right away, but it would be great to be a millionaire ha ha. But in all seriousness I know this isn't going to be easy and I'm willing to put forth the effort I need to succeed at affiliate marketing and my life.

Nice to meet everybody!!
Nanowave's Goals 3
Money Goals
1. I'd like to earn as much as possible ideally, but honestly I'd be satisfied if I could make it to at least a $2000 a month mark for now.
2. Honestly to be earning anything at all would make me ecstatic.
3. I'm willing to put forth any amount of time and effort needed to make this work. I know this isn't going to be some overnight success and I probably won't see a single piece of income for the first 4 months or so, but I'm willing to do what it takes to try and make this worth.
Money I would be happy earning
Money I would be ecstatic earning

Your goals are totally realistic and when you achieve the first one, it will be just a matter of scaling to reach the second one. The Internet works wonderful when you have your formula for success down which you are going to be getting from the training here at WA.

Once you get this formula down the sky is truly the limit Jaylin! I look forward to working with you and seeing you make your goals a reality. :)
nathaniell Premium
Those are some very achievable goals Jaylin, and once you reach them, you'll be primed and ready to go beyond. If you stick to the plan and dedicate that amount of time to training and taking action every day, then you are definitely going to start to see some results!

Hi Jaylin! I wanted to welcome you to the community! Take care!
nathaniell Premium
Hey Jaylin, I just wanted to check in and see if had a chance to start exploring Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't started the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course - that's the best place to start. It'll take you through the whole process of how to start your website and how the making money stuff works.

Click the green"Get Started Here" button on the left.

PS. One thing people get stuck on a lot is picking a topic or "niche" for their website. If you are having trouble thinking of something to make your website about let me know and we can figure it out together.

PSS. Just about every new member wants to see some success stories! There are too many to list, but here are a few of my favorites:

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. I'm at the process of creating my website now. I know I want to do something video game related, but I looked at your list and I'm just not quite sure what niche I should do to make a living.
vintage console repair- something I don't know anything about
rare NES and SNES game reviews- Well I suppose I could emulate some and try them out myself
creating computer game mods- I don't know how to do that
genre game reviews (racing, horror, indie)- if I had more money to buy more I could see myself doing this
gaming chair reviews- I don't have the money to try this
gamer gear reviews- I don't have the money to try gaming gear
computer gaming headset reviews- Don't have the money
easter eggs- I could look them up I suppose
arcade games and MAME
Minecraft tutorials- Don't play
MMO (can also be broken down further)
These games I don't really play
how to start a letsplay channel on YouTube- I don't have a letsplay channel so how would I know?
virtual reality- Ideas but no experiennce
portable gaming consoles
browser based games
games where you can make money
family friendly video games
video games for kids under [age of your choice]
imported video games
rare video games

So I was wondering if someone could look at my list of interest and help me decide on a niche within that broader category to start a profitable business around? Please and Thank You!

I suppose I should also add that when it came to affiliate programs for video games I found this video game pay my bills .com
But I don't know if I can do that, because I'm not a lets player let alone a well known one.

Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!

If you only play games casually, then maybe this is not the niche for you though. It just depends on what you want to spend time researching and writing about!

I actually created my website last night. A techforgamers site. I want to help people choose the gaming devices best for them. Though due to my lack of money I can't buy a lot of them myself, I got some advice on what to do about that.

Great! If you haven't seen this training, it's a good one for you:

Hi there Nate. I'm officially a part of this community now. Thanks for all the advice. I'm looking forward to working with everyone here and maybe making a few friends.
Nanowave Premium
Curious question Nathaniell. Out of all of my passionate interest I mentioned in my profile, which one do you think would be best for my first website?
nathaniell Premium
Well, they are all very broad topics, so I think you'd need to pick a more narrow subject within one of those interests. For example, video games. I broke it down here: Maybe you'll see a topic you're interested in within that post, or at least see how I broke it down, then apply that to your other interests.

Any topic can make money as long as you have the passion and patience to write about it and share knowledge with other people interested in the same topic.
Nanowave Premium
Thanks Nat, is it okay with you if I see one of your website for an example of how this all works? I'm completely new here and it's true I play games fairly casually.
nathaniell Premium
I have a beer website here you can see at xbrewx.com, and you came through my website onemorecupof-coffee.com. You can also view other members here: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/rank and see which ones have listed websites in their profiles. Some people do, some people don't.
