About Sheilap1
Joined January 2019
I'm a single mom, to two grown daughters (currently 25 & 27). My youngest daughter has Down Syndrome so she lives with me. My oldest daughter got married last year and is doing her Ph. D. at Oxford. So quite the spectrum of parenting experiences.
I've worked in marketing and communications most of my career and spent ten years as an entrepreneur owning a marketing company. I left my government job almost a year ago because it was so stressful and I decided life was too short to spend my days being so stressed and unhappy.
I knew I wanted to do something online. I've looked at literally dozens of courses and opportunities. Affiliate marketing always intrigued me. I'm really hoping this will be what I have been looking for.
Appreciate all the help and support anyone can give. :)

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learned to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask.
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.

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 have jumped in with both feet and have been feverishly looking at different niches last night and this morning.

Did a bunch of keyword searches and narrowed it down to the following niches.
In order of what I think would be top picks based on keyword searches:
β€’ Cannabis stuff (paraphernalia, medical marijuana)
β€’ Sunglasses
β€’ Bitcoin mining
β€’ Fitness equipment (passionate about fitness)
β€’ Hair extensions

I would appreciate your feedback on which one you think would be best to pursue.

Kyle Premium
Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)
sheilap1 Premium
Thanks, Kyle. Because I was eager to get started, I chose cannabis products because of the popularity of the keyword searches. So, I started building my site and am well on my way.

I do have a question that I posted but no one has responded. Is there a way to migrate a site from a free domain name to a registered domain down the road?

Kyle Premium
Sounds good regrading your niche.

And yeah, we actually have a "Move" feature that you will see right within the SiteManager.


You can move any domain to any domain hosted here at WA. For example, if you wanted to move your Siterubix website to a domain that you have purchased, then it is a very simple process.

The "Move" feature also handles for all proper redirects and SEO, it will transfer your site in its entirety and it is as simple as a few clicks. See attached screenshot for what I am referring to here.
