About Shaughn
Joined May 2019
I'm a former Marine who has worked in a myriad of industries throughout his life including food, Real Estate, copywriting, and Industrial Radiography to name a few. I have also owned two businesses that, while successful, Iife did not deem it the correct time for them to work out.

The second never took off as I had a child a little over three years ago which I ended up raising alone. I am currently looking for a viable work from home opportunity so that I can see my son as much as he needs as well as work on getting my book that I have recently finished (for the second time) published.

Wishing you the very best in your online business Shaughn. As a friendly suggestion, it would be very beneficial to you if you would follow members who follow you and other members. This way, you would be on the distribution of all of their posts and have the opportunity to learn a lot of "Tricks on Online Marketing".

Have a great weekend Shaughn.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

WA is an amazing environment to learn and apply our skills towards creating an online business. I tried to do this alone before and was completely lost.

Now I know why.

There are so many tricks of the trade and it saves so much time having it all laid out clearly in the WA training programs.

Keep following the training and exercises every day. Give it a year to see significant results. You'll be a happy camper by then. We all make progress at different rates and it is possible to see meaningful results in 4-6 months. Google cannot be rushed.

Google rewards people with websites that provide value to their visitors. It helps to boost their ad revenue of course! And that helps your websites get high rankings. But it takes time to build credibility. Once they realize your site is an authority site, good things will happen faster.

When you get stuck, and you will, just ask for help in the discussion area located below each lesson. Scroll down to find it. Another member who has the answer will get back to you promptly.

In the meantime have fun with the program. Much success to you.

Cheers!

Edwin

Hi Shaughn,

Hope you have enjoyed your first 24 hours here at WA, I wanted to pop by today and just give you a bit of direction here if you are feeling the slightest bit stuck.

There is “core” training at Wealthy Affiliate, which is called the Online Entrepreneur Certification. This is a very comprehensive course and is going to walk you through the process of building a business online.

By lesson 4 of this training you are going to understand the process of building a business online, you are going to have a direction chosen for your business, and you are going to have your very own niche website up and running.

A lot of the time I see people that are shy to “take action” simply because they worry they might do something wrong. I can assure you that there are no major mistakes that you can make, and you have help every step of the way if you ever need a hand with anything!

Here is a link to the course: (or click “Training” in the main menu, and choose the “Getting Started” course)

So, get rolling through the training, you will see your business take shape very quickly. And if you ever need a hand with anything at all ask for help... simply click "Reply" to this comment, and leave your reply below. I will be here to help you out along with many other experts that are available 24/7 within the community.

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! :)

Since you asked I was actually looking for a little feedback on my niche idea. I posted this thought in the course question section as well.

My thought was that my niche would be strategy games. I was going to start off with board games, but try to keep the website name more on the general side (ex. Strategy Gamer) so that once I know more about what I'm doing I can expand it to the huge world of video games.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Sounds like you have a great niche Shaughn. You can definitely take this passion and turn it into a successful business with some direction and a little elbow grease here at WA. We are all about turning a passion into a business and that is what our training is going to walk you through.

If you ever need any guidance with the training then please don't hesitate to drop me a reply.

I actually do find myself with a question for when you have a chance.

I just finished with my first keywords search on Jaaxy and I have a results interpretation question.

My chosen niche is strategy board games. During my keywords search I'm receiving drastically varied results, which I assume is normal, but have a quick question on which factors weigh more heavily on the good or bad side.

The two most drastic examples are as follows:

(Keyword) Chess -
764,995 average searches per month and 99QSR

(Keyword) Best War Strategy Board Games -
112 average searches per month and 9 SQR

Now obviously since there are (I'm fairly sure) 10 results on the first page of a Google search if I were to get ranked with the latter I'm on the first page 100+ times per month. But does the shear volume of the former search outweigh the visibility of the latter?
Reply
kevinmj Premium
The keyword Chess is extremely generic and broad. It will be very hard to rank page 1 with that keyword. The other keyword is low competition and a long tail keyword. It is much more targeted and easier to rank page 1. That is why the training teaches to source low competition keywords.

Just wanted to pop by and say hi. I realize you are probably just get stepping into the platform & community here at Wealthy Affiliate, but I wanted to let you know that I am here to help you out if you ever need anything.

My immediate recommendation for you (outside of asking for help when you need it), is to start moving through the training under the “Training” menu. You will want to go into the Get Started Here” course.

If you are looking to create a business online and do so within any niche, you are in the right place!

Chat soon Shaughn!
