I started internet marketing while living in China. The idea was that I could make American money while in China, and arbitrage my lifestyle. I could make money in different time zones and, and essentially have cash flow 24/7. I didn't realize then how well it would work. 10 years later, I'm still doing this affiliate blogging thing, and active inside the Wealthy Affiliate community helping others do the same!

There's still a lot I don't know about affiliate marketing, but I can say that I've achieved all the goals I set, and have surpassed them way beyond what I thought possible. I truly believe that anyone can "make it" in this space and that any website can make money if you put in consistent work and follow through.

Hello Nathaniell,
Hope you are doing well !
I am in the process of building my website, but first I feel like I need help in choosing a Niche as a final step.
I am stuck between 2 Niches.
It can be either about overall well-being and abiding to a healthy lifestyle with sticking to natural foods as a way to achieve ones goal of either losing weight or living a healthy life.
Or a website related to exclusive breastfeeding and how to give your child food gradually after 6 month till 2 years of age.
The problem is I am not sure what to sell with these two topics and in your opinion which is the most suitable one to start with.
I think the "Natural Food Healthy Living" is a good Niche to start with. I feel it will definitely grab the attention of a wider range of people.
One more thing, Do you think I can make a website with two languages to target a larger audience?

Great ideas Diana!

Any niche can make money so it's rarely a matter of which niche is best, and more often a matter of which niche is most interesting to you. Especially as a beginner, you'll run into some frustrating times with your business, and having a personal interest in your niche will help you maintain consistent work over a longer period of time.

The best question to ask yourself is, which topic you'd be most interested in researching?

Regarding your website question, If you feel comfortable writing English, then my suggestion is to start your first in English. The English language is the widest used language online, and the majority of online shopping is done in North America.

Plus, then you can participate in all of the Wealthy Affiliate benefits like SiteFeedback and SiteComments!

We have many Wealthy Affiliate members who are non-native English speakers who are making sales and earning money. Your English doesn't have to be perfect in order to communicate important information to people. In fact, Jerry Huang is a very successful affiliate marketer, and he's a native of Taiwan! He outsources a lot of his content, so that's an option too.

After you build your first website in English, you can use your knowledge to create another site in another language and I think you'll do well :)

Side note: If you are not comfortable creating an English language website, and do not have a budget to outsource content and have someone do the writing for you, then you can definitely do your website in your own native language. That's totally fine! There are many affiliate programs in just about every major language, so you can do the WA training and apply it to your website regardless.

PS. Hope this answers your questions, Diana!

Hi Coach! How's it going? All good here. I'm loving writing posts and sorting my website out. Not made any money yet but I'm only just sorting out the affiliate stuff now. That said, CLICK NO FOLLOW on affiliate links? Or leave it?

NO FOLLOW - means Google bots will ignore it?

Ah...the life of an affiliate!

Have a great weekend!
Louise

Historically, I've never used nofollow and done fine. However, after I wrote this post, I realized that all the links were nofollow (by default due to the plugin) So you can do either way. Standard advice is to use nofollow for affiliate links, so that may be the best way to go. Especially if you are using AIO SEO, it's easy to do that with a single click!

Hi Nathaniel,
I recently took a course in internet marketing at a community college by a brilliant instructor who hat Guy Kawasaki speak to the class for over an hour (he was the chief evangelist at Apple who invented this title). I have a number of WordPress sites and write a blog for a major chess site under the handle stamma1.
I look forward to studying with you!

Best regards,
Steve Cross

That's awesome, Steve! Sounds like you enjoyed listening to Guy Kawasaki speak. I think with your experience with WordPress already, you have an advantage when it comes to building your site here at WA!

Happy to have you here - enjoy!

Nathaniel,
I never made a dime from the sites but the domain names themselves have value - GoDaddy has an AI tool that estimates the amount a domain name would sell for in an auction.
I never had a clear business plan around these sites in the past, and hoped to get a reputation from them and figure out how to make money eventually - now it seems likely I'll be able to monetize even these old sites.
I also learned a little about social media in the class, but this was more useful for the students who already had businesses.
Thanks - your advice has been inspiring.

Oh, I got you! Either way, it's great that you already have an idea of how websites work. The training will walk you through the entire process.

I log in to WA every day, so I'll be around to check up on you in case you need anything - have a great rest of your day! :)

Hi Nathaniel, I am going in lesson 5 of the 3rd level and I am beginning to understand and see the possibilities of generating income. I want to ask your opinion or advice on the following points:
1. My current page is startybtools.com and in one of the feedbacks I was asked what the page name means. Currently, when you open it, a phrase appears as a title, which says "Entrepreneurship, the best option", but it may be worth changing it to something that explains the name of the page, something like "Tools for Start Your Business" what do you think?
2. I have a landing page in Mexico, which is .mx and in Spanish, related to entrepreneurs, I want to ask you if it is convenient for me to change it to .com and if I can open it as a new page in WA, for Latin America, in Spanish.
3. I have experience and familiarity with some aspects of health. I gave many courses to Walmart executives in Mexico, on lifestyle, touching on 4 basic topics: 1. Healthy Eating 2. Physical and Mental Exercise, 3. Stress Control and 4. Nutritional Supplementation and now that I better understand affiliate marketing I am evaluating the possibility of opening one or more health sites, with these topics. In your opinion, is it a good step? And if so, what would be the best time to do it?

1. Keep in mind you don't have to take on board ALL suggestions. People may have some impressions of your site, but if you like the name, then stick with it. This is something you can quickly address in your "about me" page. Your big text title "Entrepreneurship, the best option" is good enough explanation for most visitors IMO.

2. Is it just a landing page? Do you plan to put more content on it? If it's just a landing page, I wouldn't worry about "changing" it to a .com. I would just copy/paste the exact content onto a new website, e.g. recreate the website in English for a .com.

WA cannot host .mx domains right now, so you wouldn't be able to move the site here, but you could build a new .com site pretty quickly.

3. If you do a health-related topic, my advice is to pick ONE topic, and make ONE website. Making multiple websites about health would be a drain on your energy, and probably unproductive in terms of getting traffic.

Keep a target audience in mind. Don't make a general "be healthy" website. Pick a type of person, e.g. "How to stay healthy and fit even while working a busy corporate job". That's a very focused target audience, and sounds like it might be a good fit based on your personal work experience.

Thanks Nat, I appreciate each of your comments. I am going to finish my training and at the same time, plan how to open other pages so that I am not overwhelmed by opening many fronts.
Your suggestion about opening the page on Health topics in a more specific way, as in the example you present, seemed very important to me.
Thanks again and excellent afternoon.

A question Nataniell, are any of your courses in an affiliate program? if so, can you tell me what courses and what programs are they in?

I don't have any courses, but Wealthy Affiliate has an affiliate program. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/share

Yes, I know and I am already registered and I made my first WA recommendation, but I am referring to other types of courses, related to training through the internet or selling tutorials, doing webinars, etc. options other than affiliate marketing
Reply
nathaniell Premium Plus
I don't have any courses I run, so they would not have an affiliate program.

However, you can use any resources here in Wealthy Affiliate and use your affiliate link to recommend them. There's a blue "Affiliate" button on each page here inside Wealthy Affiliate, and that link is your affiliate link! This includes the Webinars, and all the member-created training modules.

Regarding to our last conversation about important things, like regular post sendigs with proper organisation of key words, after all work done. Iam gona politely ask You for judgment, about my way of understanding economic mechanism of creating business in web marketing. There is 2 examples of my work, building spech wise and comfortable to point of 500 AVG, and less then 100 traffic. If You can't see mistakes, enough to say it's all good Chris, if I am doing wronge, better for all of us, to let nature done a mass murder from out o the scale of our imagination.
