About Petergillies
Joined March 2015
I live in Northern Ireland and I am retired.
Following the big drop in income and with plenty of time available I want to build an online income.
I am interested in affiliate marketing but don't know a lot about it.
I have decided to spend 4 hours per day on the "Wealthy Affiliate" programme.
I am keen to learn from others and need as much help as possible.
I am proficient in wordpress, photoshop and adobe premier pro.
I have a basic knowledge of SEO, but have never done any affiliate marketing.

Just stopping by to read a bit more about your background Peter. It looks like you have a leg up on many, given your aptitudes. To succeed at affiliate marketing, you need to abandon the typical "I will succeed" mindset. Know that you will make mistakes, perhaps *lots* of them. Each one brings you closer to the successful venture - so resolve to fail fast!

Thanks for following me! I have been exposed to affiliate marketing in the past but never applied myself like I intend to do with Wealthy Affiliate. I see that you mentioned proficiency in wordpress, photoshop, and adobe premier pro. I hope you won't mind if I call on you for help from time to time should I need help with these features with my website.

Thanks Tmaltz. Yes its really scary at the moment. I hope I can make the right decisions and find a good niche market

You know Peter, that's on everyone's mind. As a matter of fact I was studying up on this. There is so good Webinars in the section that says Live Video Classes that have several case studies about finding a niche. -Their excellent videos that should be put on your weekly schedule to watch.

The post I read from a WA'er earlier and enjoyed today was.. If you put up top "how to find a niche" you also get a ton of other training and perspectives.

Everyone says it and it's true, find something you're passionate about. Check out some of the sources here and relax, take your time, find something you love.

Here's an article I wrote about how to find your niche if you want a quick read: http://learntogrowwealthonline.com/what-is-your-niche

Let me know if you want to run any niche ideas by me, you can always PM me

Thanks,
Todd

Hi Kyle. Your message is appreciated. Had an OK weekend - no spare money after paying all the bills!! Does that sound familiar? I am now choosing a niche. I am interested in slimming plans, healthy eating, recipes weight loss and obesity issues. So I am thinking of a niche built around these issues and products. Do you think this is stupid or what? I have lots of other ideas but I want to choose a niche that has a good product base and a good hit rate. A celtic gift shop is another idea along a completely different interest.

Not stupid at all, but I would narrow it down a little bit. All of these are niches in themselves, so focus on one of them and then scale out your website. The problem when you start off too broad is that you will be left with an overwhelmed feeling.

Start really niche and then scale outwards, that is the best approach Peter.
