About Pgonz
Joined April 2016
Married for 34 yrs. 2 grown kids. I am about to retire from the local UA in August. I was in construction, and working on a new income for the rest of my time here on earth. I am a cancer survivor of 15 yrs. I always thought of doing this but never new how to get started. I love the out doors, camping, hiking, boating, fishing, & mudding...I also love a good camp fire. There is nothing like glazing at the stars out in the hills or the mountains. Its is breath taking. My battle was 3yrs and I wasn't suppose to live past 2001. With God willing I'm still here...

Hello Cristina11, thanks! Have you been doing this awhile? If so, how do you promote WA? Can I just copy their site? I had a niche but, now I'm stuck again. I started with the idea of posting ads. Now I have to come up with what people might want. A specific something. So yeah it is a challenge for me. Hope you got things going your way. Enjoy, and thanks for the intro.

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! :)
Reply
pgonz Premium
Hey Kyle, hope all is well. Your right, just a bit confused about my niche and how to promote it. I thought I had it figured out last night, but was just a thought in my head I guess. I know a lot about repairs and the outdoors, but not sure how to go about it. I want to post ads like Home Depot and Bass pro Shops. I requested for Home Depot to let me promote their products on my site last night. It has to be reviewed and they will let me know something via e-mail. I did not request permission from Bass Pro Shop. I am trying to promote WA on my FB page and twitter account from the affiliate link. I'm just putting things out their on my site as it come to me. I suppose I need to blog everything that comes to mind. If you get a chance, take a peek at my site and let me know what needs to be done, Please! I'll appreciate it. Thanks...

Kyle Premium
You will want to narrow your ideas down to something much more specific.

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. :)

Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, those are two different directions but they are definitely niches. Choose the one you are most interested in and go from there. :)
Reply
pgonz Premium
Which direction should I go? How can I just promote WA. I can't just copy WA's banners if I'm promoting WA? I was reading last night about this guy that posted a book from amazon and they bought something else and still got a commission from that sell. Could I do the same thing with any of the places like Home depot, Bass Pro Shops, and Amazon. It only has to be a specific item right?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You will get there as you go through the training, the first focus with your website is to build out the foundation, the content and get rankings. Once you have rankings and traffic then you can focus on what you are going to promote.

There are 10,000's of affiliate programs and millions of products you are going to be able to promote as an affiliate, don't ever worry about there being nothing to promote within a given niche. There will likely be 100's if not 1,000's of things you can promote. ;)

There is no sense in putting to much thought into what you are going to promote until you have content in place and an audience to promote to. You will definitely get there though!

Thanks Susanne-SB, and I thought I could get things going before I went Premium. Didn't know if I could get this going for me. Not working at the time so money is something I really must value right now. Worried about my health also, didn't want to do something I couldn't follow through with. If you could take a look at my site and let me know if I'm on the right track, I would appreciate it very much. No hurry, just if you have time. Thanks again!

Sure if I new how to do it. What link do I need to get? This is all new to me. Do I copy my website or is pgonz.siterubix.com my link? I want to post ads on my site and not sure if I'm putting them in there or where to put them. I'm trying, and maybe I'll get there eventually. Maybe getting the premium will help. Haven't slept yet, because this has been on my mind and so wanting this to work. It's 7:47 am, now here in League City, so maybe I will try to close my eyes for a bit. Thanks again!!!
Reply
Suzanne-SB Premium
I've had a look at your site and it's great you are making progress...Where are you with the training, what lesson are you on etc?

I see you have a siterubix website, now you are Premium you may want to buy your own .com domain but if money is tight then just stick to the free site for now.

The Out Door World (Outdoor is one word Paul) you might want to change this.

My suggestion would be to go over the lessons on writing content and get some more words to your articles and images help too.

I like the concept, 'Hopes and Dreams' and the outdoor life, I think you could come up with some great articles related to these topics. You can then begin incorporating offers and promotions.

I hope this helps

Hey Paul, welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate community! So glad you made the decision to try things out :) The first thing I suggest you do is jump into a live chat and introduce yourself. You will find this on the main Dashboard within WA. Here you will find other members within the community (including myself) that you will be able to communicate with, network with and get help with. :)

Lots of help here and a lot of people that care about your personal success. If you get stuck, simply ask! I look forward to working with you!

Oh, and I wanted to also point you in the direction of the Getting Started Course which is located on your dashboard, and in the main menu under recommended training "Getting Started".

Here is the link: regards

Reply
Suzanne-SB Premium
Your profile is very moving Paul and I sincerely hope you find what you are looking for here at WA.

The community and training you get here is seriously the best online, myself and many here have been scammed before, this is most definitely not one of those - with WA the first month is $19 and then it's $49 per month thereafter - there are no hidden extra costs involved. You will need to buy a domain but that is very cheap.

The training is excellent, you have hosting, the support is brilliant. I sound like a sales person but it really is worth the investment - if you follow the training here you will succeed.

If I can help with anything, just let me know.

regards
Suzanne
