About Sharon22
Joined October 2016
My name is Sharon, a stay-at-home mom from Malaysia with 2 kids. They are growing up faster than I thought. Thus, it is time for me to get back to learning and be ready to start working again.

I have read about affiliate marketing many years ago but didn't give it much thought. I found Wealthy Affiliate while searching for a part-time work from home job. Hopefully, I will be able to learn and earn some money, contribute to the household income.

Update: April 2018 - after more than one year

Time flies. It has been more than a year now with Wealthy Affiliate. The journey is truly amazing and I wouldn't say it was easy. There was so much to learn. It was overwhelming at first. It still is, at times. No matter, I am enjoying my journey, still learning.

If you would like to find out how my journey was, go to My Post in the right column and click on My Online Journey - Shameful of Proud

Thanks for dropping by.

Just wanted to shoot you a quick message and see how things were going thus far Sharon? 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. :)

Thanks Kyle.

I have just finish with the keywords. Next will be building the framework. Probably in the late afternoon. Now have to do mother duty.

I will do the upgrade tomorrow on Oct 12 since the offer valid till Oct 13.

Once again, many thanks for the guidance and support!

I have built the 3 pages - About Me, Privacy Policy and related to niche page but when I view my site, it didn't show. Even the home description which I added in the previous lesson didn't show. Why? Some steps that I missed?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, some themes by default don't show pages in the header menu. You can add these custom menus to organize your top menu in any way in which you like, as well as create sub-menus (for themes that will support this). You can also use these custom menus to add within your side widgets on your website (within your sidebar).

Here is a tutorial on how to create custom menus: I use custom menus on all of my websites (over-ride that default menu). It allows much more control and organization....both good things!

Hi there Sharon! How's the training going? Are you enjoying WA?

I found this great video by Kyle I'm sure you'd be interested in, take a look: By now I'm sure you're beginning to grasp all the knowledge there are here in WA.

If you ever need help, just ask of course :)

Hi Chris,

Thanks for following up on my progress. I am doing good. Just that I am stuck at my niche and domain name.

Wanted to write about "Learn all about Herbs & Spices" or rather "Usage of Herbs & Spices". As a Stay at Home Mom who cooks, learning new recipes every other day, thus buying all the herbs & spices, there are plenty of stocks in the pantry. Am sure there are many usage for it. I could share recipes that uses the same herbs . Also, share with the MOMs on the health benefits of the ingredients. How does this sound? Workable?

As for the domain name? Hhhmmm...
Learn Your Herbs & Spices
Usage of Herb & Spices
Cooking with Herbs & Spices
Know Your Herbs & Spices
Spice Up Your Life (I do like this but the "herbs is missing")

My goodness, so much is going on in my mind...
Reply
Chris Lee Premium
I like "spice up your life" a lot as well haha. You don't have to have the word "spices" in the domain so don't wry much about that.

My second fav would be "knowyourherbs.com". It's a great catchy and easy to remember domain.

Let me know what you decide! :)

sharon22 Premium
"Spice Up Your Life" it is :-)

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,

Thank you so much for following my progress.

Firstly, on the niche ideas, I as a Stay at Home Mom always has the challenge of home cooking. What's for dinner mom? kids ask every other day. "Home cooking" is broad, yes. I would like to go into "learn to cook with herbs & spices". Reason being my pantry is full of herbs and spices which I am searching for recipes every now and then so as to utilize the herbs & spices. On top of my head, I can think of writing, describing all the characteristics and usage of each ingredient. Support with recipes as well as health benefits. Do you think it is workable?

Secondly, as my next lesson will be building my website. Will I be able to move the site from siterubix to my own domain when I upgrade to Premium.

Appreciate and thanks in advance for your reply.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, you could narrow it down like this, most definitely workable. Just come up with a more unique approach than "home cooking" as that will be a little too broad (as it means pretty much everything).

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
sharon22 Premium
My target audience will be Stay at Home Moms. Am sure they have the same predicament as I do. Pantry full of herbs and spices unused. If so, only a minimum amount per cooking. With my site, I am hoping to help SAHM use their herbs and spices in every possible way/recipes. Going into the health direction, I can share / help my audience on the benefits of using herbs and spices.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Your target audience will be people that want to cookie with spices/herbs, this could be men or women.

TheHerbAndSpiceCook

Something of that nature and you could build out your website in a way that appeals to women.

Hi Kyle,

When I did Lesson 5, I have activated the SEO and click on "Upgrade to Pro" without realising that I do NOT need to in Lesson 6. What can I do to revert?
Reply
Kyle Premium
That is fine if you activated already, you are just one step ahead. Just do know that you do not need to upgrade to Pro.
Reply
sharon22 Premium
Well, that's was the problem. I unintentionally click on upgrade to Pro. Any issue then?

No issue at all, that is fine.

Hey there Sharon.

Glad you decided to take advantage of the free membership here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Now that you’ve joined the WA family, it’s time for you to get clear on what you are here to achieve. Do you...

want to build a profitable blog business?

want to learn how to do SEO?
want to get free hosting?
want a helpful community?
want a step by step action plan that will GUARANTEE success?

All that you are looking is available for you on the left-hand side of the screen.

Here is what you should do first.

1) Fill out a quick (short) bio and add a profile picture.

This will help you make connect with other fellow members of WA

2) Start Exploring WA.

Start exploring what WA is all about. My suggestion would be to hit the green “Get Started Here” button. It is a 10-day step-by-step process which will show you how you to start building your online empire!

3) Read this amazing story by a fellow WA member: It will show you what you can achieve here at WA if you simply follow the training process.

-----------------------------------------------

If you enjoy Wealthy Affiliate, which I am sure you will, then you should consider going premium in the near future.

When you are ready to go "Premium", you will open up all the training modules, webinars, courses and content available at Wealthy Affiliate.

Here are just SOME of the bonuses you'll get if you decide to go premium in your first 7 days:

1) A 59% discount on your first month (only $19 - $0.61c per day)

2) You’ll have me as your own personal mentor in WA.

I’ve been here 4 years now and achieved all my dreams with WA, I want to help you do the same.

3) Free hosting for your website (valued at $12 per month each).

I have 5 blogs hosted at WA, this alone saves me $60 per month on hosting costs.

*And they wonder why I love WA so much* LOL !

-----------------------------------------------

I’ll leave you to it now Sharon .

Just wanted to drop by and introduce myself and the WA community to you.

Just know that I am here to help you so feel free to reply back on this comment or leave me one on my own profile here:
