About ScottLindsa1
Joined December 2017
I have been self employed for over 25 years and for the past 17 years, have developed a very large online business my main business model being membership websites. I was able to become financially free using this business model. I then sold several of my online businesses which left me totally free to pursue other passions.

Over the last 4 years I have developed two million dollar brands selling products on Amazon using private label.

The one thing I have never been able to break into successfully is affiliate marketing. I hope the Wealthy Affiliate program can help me to finally succeed in this area.

Thanks for including me (fulltimejobfromhome.com) on your list of best 95 work from home sites.

I appreciate it and good to come across other WA members.

One recommendation. You might want to create a Pinterest image for that list post. Most of the blogs you include have HUGE Pinterest followings that you could leverage by having them share your list on Pinterest.

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! :)

Hi Kyle:

I do have a site already and I am working on it. It is in the home business niche and I have been working on this since April 2017 and it is growing. It is off of the WA platform on my favorite host. I do plan on promoting WA from the site and I do hope to bring many new people here.

As I say in my profile, I have a lot of experience in online business and have been quite successful. In fact, I have been financially free for many years as result of my years of building businesses online. I have have great success in building membership websites, had several Adsense websites years back and did very well with all of them. I was making more money than I ever thought possible (back before Google's big changes) I sold the businesses after many years of operation and cashed out and it left me in a great position.

Over the past 4 years I have built two million dollar + brands selling private label products on Amazon. I sold the business for a nice 7 figure sum.

However, the one area I have not been able to truly break into in a big way is affiliate marketing. I have made a little money here and there but nothing great.

So I came to WA last week and like what I see so far. I plan on becoming a Premium Member.

I do hope that through this platform that I will finally make my break through in affiliate marketing!

A niche I am thinking about is the "toenail fungus treatment", "toenail fungus cure" etc...niche. Not that I love this niche but I have personal experience with it since many family members have this issue. I have actually found a way help people with this problem but I am not sure if this is just too competitive of a niche. Everything I look at seems to show that large sites like WebMD make up the search results and that is so hard to break into.

What do you think? I just don't want to waste any time on a niche that is too hard to break into.

I appreciate your time and sorry for the long message!

Regards,
Scott Lindsay

Well it sounds like you have a really exciting background Scott and I am sure you have a lot of stories and information you could share with the community on the ecom side (we have lots of FBA/ecommers here as well).

You are definitely in the right place to learn about affiliate marketing and I know you are going to really enjoy your experience at WA. You could use this in tandem with your own products and you could absolutely use any leverage you have within Amazon and with sellers there, to help introduce them to the idea of building a business online and scaling their business through the recruitment of affiliates.

You could head in the toenail fungus niche if that is something that you think you would be passionate about, but only head that direction if it is an interest and something that you want to help people with.

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. :)

Kyle, good advice.

I want to help people that "want to make more money" or "want to start their own business".

My main passion is helping people succeed in their own business and helping them find ways to do this. That is what I do from my site and that excites me. These "make money" niches are so competitive though and I know it will take some time to build that into something more substantial. May take a few years.

I do have hobbies but I can't say they are my passions. So this is where I struggle outside of the business niches. I just can't seem to find something that gets me excited.

In the "toenail fungus niche", I thought about entering that because I do have a solution and that does excite me but not sure I could ever get traction in a niche like that.

Would you enter a niche like that with so many medical sites littering the search results? Not sure how I could compete in a niche like that but there may be a way.

Anyway, I do appreciate any help you can throw my way.

Scott

Sorry for the previous message Kyle. I realized you probably don't want to give me a "go for it" or "don't go for it" on a niche. Sorry about that.

Just upgraded to premium!

Hey Scott,

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 Scott and Reply to this if you do have any “pending” questions. :)
