Great to see that you've added some goals Sean!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

Hi marcel92. It´s all a bit of a minefield for me at the moment. I was thinking of taking the bootcamp first and then moving on from there.

Best regards

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 Christene,

You got it in one. I´m struggling to refine my niche. It is too broad "effective communication in the workplace". I need to make it more specific but I´m struggling for the words and everything I come up with is too long.

My background is in teaching and training communication skills, appraisals and coaching etc. I thought I could start with one centred around effective communication and then move through to others on coaching, presentation skils etc.

Any advice or suggestions would be more than welcome.

I really want to start moving forward with the training.

Hi Sean. To be honest, I am no expert at most niches and thus would not know what would work or fail without doing a few days of proper research. However, I can give you advice on finding a niche with potential.

First and most importantly, learn how to do proper keyword research if you are not already familiar with it. WA has lots of training materials available on this. Keywords are the backbone of every promotional article, article, website and so forth. You need to know how to use them correctly.

Blogging and affiliate marketing is a long term commitment. The more content you publish, the more attraction you will get and thus make more sales. Your niche must have potential to grow into an info hub, meaning, you will always have ideas for new articles. You do not want to narrow it down to a point where you will run out of ideas for growth.

Choose an evergreen niche. Meaning, there must always be a demand for information and product for a long time to go. Example, "Christmas gifts" is a great niche, lots of traffic BUT, only at Christmas time. Pet care, health and weight loss, tech, illnesses and so forth are examples of niches that will most likely last forever.

In addition to finding an evergreen niche, it must also be something with a product demand, like the examples mentioned above. People will always spend money to lose weight, give their pets the best care or to be healthy. No matter their financial situation, the majority will still buy in these niches. To sum it up, choose something with buying and traffic potential.

Go to busy websites and social platforms to determine the popularity and buying potential of your niche. (Facebook groups and pages have something on about anything you can think of) Write down suggestions, questions, product recommendations and so forth to determine if there is a true need for the information you wants to offer.

The classifieds/online stores like eBay and Amazon are also good places to research product potential. Products with good feedback, high ratings and "sold out" indicators are signs that the specific product is in demand.

Unfortunately, we live in a financial crunch, people do not spend so easily anymore and would only focus on things that is needed. Thus, the more reason to pick niches with buyers potential.

Like always, please do not hesitate to give me a shout if you have questions or if the above is unclear.

Hi Christene,

Thank you for your extensive information. I have plenty of information on communication that I can blog about.I will do something centred around this to find my feet and move on to something else as I become more comfortable with this process.

Many thanks
