Hi all,

Thanks for dropping by and thank you for reading my profile. In the past I have created a few websites, which I didn't make any money on. I also did an ecommerce course, but never acted on this. Now I'm in a job that I want to get out of and I want to be my own boss. So I came to Wealthy Affiliate to see what this was all about.

I have now set up a genealogy site, giving family historians a guide to how they can research their family history. I also give reviews on genealogy products.

Ideally I first want to make money with my site, no matter how small. Then build on that to achieve what I'm earning at work. And then $10k per month, and after that who knows.

Through the course here I have joined a few social media sites. You can follow me through these links. I will return the favor.

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 Owain! I look forward to working with you and seeing you make your goals a reality. :)

Hello and welcome to WA!
These are more than achievable goals. Sometimes it's good to start at a lower amount to give something for the mind to believe. Once you start making your initial goal and get the feeling of excitement it will then be easier for the mind to believe you can make even more. Stay focused and motivated and it will happen #BelieveAndReceive

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! :)

I have two niche ideas. The first is a site that reviews family history software. I have just recently written up a lengthy family history book, so this subject interests me quite a lot. I did get disheartened when I was doing the keywords lesson and saw that there were a few keywords searched for in the hundreds per month. But then I saw competition is low so I'm going to stick with this niche. At least what I learn here then I can take to another niche.

The second niche is something to do with leather shoes. The reason for this is that my ancestors were shoemakers and worked with leather, and I thought it would be great for me to get into this field and make money. I haven't thought much about it though as I'm concentrating on the first niche at the moment.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. At the moment I'm on lesson 8 and looking forward to getting my site up and running.

Thanks,
Owain

You can head in either one of these directions and as you dig into ANY niche, there are going to be likely 10,000's of keywords that you will be able to target (you will be in a position with TOO many versus not enough typically).

So which niche are you most passionate about/interested in?

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. :)

Thanks very much for your help Kyle. I have gone with the family history software niche, and have nearly finished the first course. On one hand I'm excited about the course and the niche, but on the other I'm a bit nervous and wonder if this will take off. I guess it's because I'm heading into the unknown. If the rest of the courses are as straight forward as the first then I think to myself that there's no reason why I can't make a living with this. This is what I want and I got to remain positive.

Also, I get a bit frustrated as I can't do it all the time due to family life and work. I have to do it part-time, but want to get this off the ground. I guess it'll come with time and I got to be patient with it.

It will take off if you put forth the effort to make it take off Owain. I know you are going to love your direction, but success won't happen overnight. It will happen with time and I think to a certain degree every single person that you see that is successful online started in a "part time" state. You are going to be just fine.

Thanks for getting back to me. I'm putting together the content and it's helping shape what the site will look like. It's taking a while but I'm excited with the direction of the site.
