Is My Site/Niche Worth It?
Is it Worth it?
Lately, I’ve been receiving some not-so-motivating feedback/opinions/advice about my site/niche from other members… I don’t mind the honesty, I actually prefer it, but- It’s concerning to hear from someone who knows what they’re doing and is obviously successful at this that my site is going in the wrong direction, or that my business plan is setup for affiliate/online marketing failure.
When someone gives me advice, I take it. Especially if its corrective.
I would rather stop messing with a hopeless niche now, than put in even more work than I already have into it, only to find out later down the road it all wasn’t worth it, and that all my hard work was for nothing.
I am still very motivated and passionate about succeeding in online/affiliate marketing with a website, but it is a bit discouraging to feel like I’ve been heading in the wrong direction all along.
I would really love to hear your straight-up, honest, real opinions about the potential of my websites current plans, and future.
- -I promote/recommend psychedelic art & clothing
- -The main purpose/solution of my site is to compile psychedelic art & clothing from multiple (affiliate) sites into one, convenient place, so that shoppers/visitors have one place to go to, and don’t have to shop around searching various different sites. I also plan for my site to be an info-center for anything and everything to do with psychedelic art & clothing.
- -My target audience is people like me: people who like psychedelic art, and are interested in buying it or wearing it as clothing.
- -I plan to display massive amounts of art & clothing in gallery style setups, with affiliate links to the product page in the image description, so that those that are interested in buying can easily be linked to the “buy” page of my partner site, with which I am affiliated.
What I’ve heard
I’ve been told/advised by some of the trusted, successful, more experienced WA members that having a website with mostly images and affiliate links will not rank well in Google. I do intend to write content, not just images, but- there WILL be more images than actual articles/writing in the end.
Should I drop It?
I am new at all of this, so I’m not sure if I picked the best niche for my first website. I would like to hear your opinions on whether or not it’s worth the long haul. I’m sure some of you out there have had similar struggles.
If not, that’s ok. I’ll move on to another niche. I still learned a lot making this site, and had fun too. If I end up making a new site, I will apply all that I’ve learned from my current site, and be sure to avoid any of the same mistakes or pitfalls.
I have no problem with starting over. I actually kinda look forward to it! Would be nice to have a fresh start with what knowledge I have already gained.
I am still extremely motivated, and determined, to make this work. I won’t let anything stop me.
I have a burning desire to make this happen- to be fully and completely self dependent. To have a successful, authority niche website that allows me to work from home and be my own boss and, enjoy life on my own terms.
This is just another bump in the road.
