About Phantomdruid
Joined September 2017
I've been a freelance writer for just over two years, and I realized that apart from two main clients with whom I work well, I would much rather write articles for my own blog, and potentially earn affiliate money from that content. I am also hoping to become a certified life coach at some point, on top of being a musician, jewelry maker, etc.

How are things going today? Just wanted to pop in to see how things are going with you thus far and how your website/niche is coming along.

Hope you are rocking it A and of course (and as always) I am in your corner if you ever need anything!

PS. Today is my last day for Premium bonuses, if you are interested in getting them make sure you upgrade today.

Hey A,

I forgot to mention the other day that I am going to still be offering you my awesome bonuses if you join within the next 4 days.

Here are the bonuses that you are going to be getting:

(1) You are going to get a 59% discount on your first month Premium membership (only $19)
(2) You are going to get personal and private access to me! If you ever have a question or need help with your campaigns, I will be there. Where else can you access the CEO of the company for help?
(3) I am going to be giving you my "Diamond Traffic Bonus". This is going to show you how I walk into absolutely any niche and get unlimited traffic.

But only if you join in the next 4 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).

Anyways, just wanted to mention this. Hope your training is going well A and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)

Kyle Premium
Here we are, 10 days into your experience at WA. :)

I hope things are going well A! I want to remind you of one thing, your hard work and dedication IS going to pay off. Keep working through the training, communicating within the community, and of course, ask for help when you need it.

Just heading out for a bit here, but do leave me a message if you need a hand with anything. You should have Premium communication back for an additional 7 days now, so hit me up when you get a chance A!
Kyle Premium
Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far A? I am here to help if you ever need a hand with anything, just holler!

PS. Also, quick reminder. Today is the last day to get your first month discount/bonuses. No rush, no worries. Just a simple reminder here. :)
Not sure where to post my link for feedback, since I can't yet afford the Premium level to access the "feedback forum" (no, I can't even afford the current special offer. I have to wait till the first of October, or until I sell something on eBay, whichever comes first. :P)

I admit, I skipped watching the video in Lesson 5 first and dove right into the customization bit because I'm reasonably confident about jumping in and designing things in a general way, based on previous experience with other non-WP blogs. It's the fine-tuning and CSS stuff that will likely trip me up.

Hey A - How's it going?

I trust you've been finding your time at WA interesting and exciting so far and are making good progress.

I know there's a lot of training to take on board, but take it step by step and it does all fall into place much more as time goes on.

Also, just a quick reminder that there is a 61% discount on your first month, (making it $19) if you sign up to premium within the first 7 days. :)

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all and have a great rest of your first week!

Take care, Nat.
Hi, Nat! Good to finally have a brief 'chat.' :) First, I must tell you I became a very quick fan of your blog Rags To Niches. It's engaging, informative, and it has a friendly conversational vibe which makes the content fun to read. And affiliate marketing is one of those topics where you either feel a spark of interest or you don't, I think. In any case, I did feel that spark, thanks to your blog.

Anyway, yeah, there's quite a bit of information. But I'll get through it. I've mostly figured out my niche, which is Druidry. My main goal with that, is to sort of take people on a journey into a different way of looking at how they relate to this and the Otherworld.

It would be a place where people who feel somewhat spiritually adrift and exiled could go and experience a healing vibe, but also read about a different way of seeing and perceiving. Since Druidry is more of a philosophy than a religion, there would be very few typical "trappings" and dogma. But it is spiritually focused, usually, and spirituality, as opposed to religion, tends to be quite fluid and accepting.

I am restarting the correspondence course from OBOD (Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids) this month, so writing about that and sharing my thoughts and what I've learned will be a part of this niche topic. Any other topics, like crystals and Tarot will be part of it all, but kind of like side dishes at a meal. ;)

Hi there, thank you very much indeed - I'm so pleased you found my blog useful and beneficial to you.

I think your potential niche is fascinating and holds plenty of possibilities in terms of affiliate marketing - or also possibly creating your own products down the line too!
I have also had an interest in spirituality throughout my life, so the niche appeals to me.
In the past, I collected crystals as a hobby - now my son has become interested in that too.
In any case, I think you've found the perfect niche for you and I'm looking forward to seeing how it progresses over time!

Let me know if you need anything and I wish you all the best!

Nat :)
Wow, cool! I never once thought I'd meet anyone else who was even remotely interested in the stuff that fascinates me. At least not here on WA. It's rather a relief, actually. :)

Anywho, I feel like I need to give my ideas some more thought before I start my site. But I'm sure the right ideas will come. :)
NatNiches Premium
Well, there are indeed - actually, I think you'll be surprised by the range of people at WA. :)
I think you have some good ideas there - at least you're not short on ideas! I think that's what is a real struggle for many getting started.
New blog post added! :-D

Welcome to WA buddy! good luck!

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! :)
Thanks for the message. :) I've got some pretty decent ideas, I think, since I have so many varied interests. Some of them are:

1) Spirituality/Alternative healing (a bit broad, I know, but it's a start)
2) Druidry (my own spiritual path, and I could broaden it somewhat with other related interests like divination, crystals, etc)
3) Productivity/Time Management (within Self-Improvement). This is a big issue for me, especially since I have what some might call an "ADD" brain: hugely creative and visionary, but sometimes distraction and follow-through are struggles if the person is not emotionally or mentally passionate about something. I was thinking maybe focusing a bit on Google Play apps for this problem, and how to creatively "weave" the usage of Google Play apps (since I use Android) together to form a seamless workflow for someone like me.
4) Cats, especially within the "purr-view" (hehe) of animal rescue, how to adopt a shelter cat, deal with taming ferals, irresponsible breeders, fostering, TNR (trap-neuter-release), etc.
5) Music--especially as it pertains to my interest in electronic/ambient, Celtic and Broadway music, singing, composing ambient stuff (maybe featuring some of my own work), and my connection to spirituality via music.
Kyle Premium
Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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 Kyle! :)
Kyle Premium
