Advice: Be Relevant to Your Niche
Hey, fellow affiliate marketing entrepreneurs! I've been noticing an interesting trend lately when I do comments. Wealthy Affiliate reviews posted on niche websites that makes no sense to do.
Kyle states this multiple times during training that you want to be relevant. There are a lot of reasons for this, but mainly:
- People searching within your niche want to read about your niche.
- You lose return visitors when you aren't writing what your audience wants to read (your niche)
- Not professional
- It's confusing
Let's use a hugely successful site, The Penny Hoarder, as an example. It started off as a small blog and has multiple writers and staff now. It's about money, saving money, side gigs, how to go on vacation on a budget, how to pay off debt, best fee-free banking options, that kind of thing. It's a huge niche with the potential for a ton more posts.
You think that they just randomly posted a movie review or restaurant review in the middle of their money saving tips, that would make sense? Or if they posted about toothbrush cleaning? Or how to build a model airplane? They definitely wouldn't be clearing the millions they do today if they weren't producing what readers return to their site for: money.
Don't Review Wealthy Affiliate on an Unrelated Niche Site
We all love Wealthy Affiliate. That's why we're here. But you aren't going to get visitors or conversions promoting Wealthy Affiliate on a quilting site. You're going to confuse your audience and maybe one out of a thousand readers might be interested. They read your site for quilting, not online business.
They will not read your post! Unless that particular post gets ranked in Google. Then people researching making money online are going to be confused as to why the rest of the site is about quilting. You will not succeed this way.
I'm uncertain you could get to the first page of Google doing this, even. It's not a relevant post to your site and I am sure Google could figure it out.
But you really want to get referrals and love WA?
First, I HIGHLY suggest building a Make Money Online site and go through the Wealthy Affiliate boot camp courses. That is going to bring you the most success promoting Wealthy Affiliate.
How to Tastefully Promote WA on an Unrelated Niche Site
Notice that I said don't review. It's okay if you want to put a Wealthy Affiliate button in the side or footer, stating you are a proud member. Maybe a VERY small mention in your About Me page.
Don't overdo it!
This method might get you a referral now and then, but it's going to be pretty small number. People going to your niche site want informative posts about the niche. They aren't likely to jump over here because of a button or a tiny link in your About Me page.
Also, sharing occasional blog posts on your personal social media accounts could net you a referral. An occasional shared blog post to your niche social media is acceptable, but don't drive your subscribers away by spamming your site's Facebook page with irrelevant content.
Stick to Your Niche
I can't stress enough that this is important. You don't want to have Wealthy Affiliate reviews on a marriage counseling site or the like. It's confusing to me, and I'm in affiliate marketing. Think about your audience. Put yourself in their place. Google anything, then imagine the site is filled with unrelated information.
If you're struggling with your niche, you can switch to the boot camp training and build a whole new site to promote making money online services, including Wealthy Affiliate.
You could have both sites, although I recommend focusing on one at a time during training.
You could create a personal blog that's not niche specific and post about anything you want.
But dog grooming site with a Wealthy Affiliate review is not going to help you at all.
