About Sjenkinsjr
Joined April 2016
I am a struggling freelance graphic design looking for internet success and a different way of life. I have an Associates degree in Specialized Technology (multimedia), I worked in Security for 8 years and just started a new job in manufacturing which makes me miserable.

Currently I am looking for a different way of life, the pursuit of internet marketing success and happiness. I hope to gather as much information as I can from Wealthy affiliate and finally earn the success I have been seeking for the last 10 years.
Sjenkinsjr's Goals 3
Money Goals
Currently I would be happy earning any where from $2000 to $4000 a month but that could change as I start to see some success and progress. Realistically I would be happy to see a couple of hundred dollars a month at first, something to reassure me that making money online in the comfort of my home is possible and not something only marketing geniuses can do!

I would be ecstatic making anything over $4000 or anything in the $1000s for that matter... The most I have ever made on freelance graphic design was $700 so making a consistent amount of money a month would make me extremely excited and motivate me to work harder.

I am willing to invest all my spare time, when I am not working or sleeping and then some. Whatever it takes to earn success...

Hey Salvatore,

You can definitely achieve these goals and I know that you will make it happen. The key is to dedicate yourself to your training here at WA. Follow the training, take action on what you learn, and ask questions when you have them.

It all starts with a goal - you can now start working toward it!

Talk to you soon,

Carson

I wrote a post yesterday on a keyword I found on jaaxy and one today. I just signed up for premium membership but hope in the first month I can earn enough to pay for the membership price after the $19 promotional price...

As always I appreciate opinions, help and any information to push my in the right direction or turn away from the wrong direction before I waste valuable time.

Here is the blog (http://simplelogodesign.siterubix.com), I will be working on some graphics as soon as I have the time... It is kind of hard, I have been trying to devote as much time as possible but I am on a 12 1/2 hour rotation shift for 4 days at work and I only have about two hours before I have to go to sleep.

Just feel free to give feedback and let me know what I am doing wrong and any pointers you might have.

What's up Salvatore, just wanted to see how you were doing and if you need any help. Let me know!

BTW in case you missed the message, you also get free keyword searches in Jaaxy (http://www.jaaxy.com) that can help you with finding topics to write about on your website.

If you need some help understanding Jaaxy just respond to this message and I can send a training video to you.

PS. I found a few more success stories I wanted you to see!

Great! I love to inspire newbies with links like that.

I think my concern is my niche... It is logo design but the question that I keep asking myself is Can I find topics all the time to write about on the website about logo design or will I hit a stand still?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Hmm, yes, that's a great question to be asking yourself. If it's something you're interested in, you can start your website on the topic right now, then you can always change to a different website later, or add more ideas to your niche later.

For example, if you start out with logo design now, and realize there's not enough to write about, you can "add" other elements like photoshop tutorials, gimp tutorials, newbie tips, and advanced tricks later.

Actually, now that I think about it, Logo Design has a lot of stuff to talk about! You can even talk about how to make money with your logo designs using things like Fiverr or Upwork.com to get clients.

I use fiverr... your right guess I am worried about nothing! I just need this to succeed and I am constantly worried about making the wrong moves.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You will definitely be making some wrong moves along the way (EVERYONE does!), so that shouldn't be a big worry lol. It's gonna happen for sure!

But those are great questions to be asking right now anyway :) Let me know if any more pop up along the way.

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! :)

Finding a good niche seems like a tough task, but it's actually pretty easy. Actually, ANY niche can make money, so you definitely should not worry if your niche is profitable or not. As far as competition goes, that's also something to not worry about. If there's competition, it just means people are making money. That means you can make some too! As time progresses, new products come out, new technology is introduced, new ideas formed, and each change is an opportunity for "the new kid" to get a foothold and overtake established websites.

So the big question is not "what" is going to make money, but "what do you want to make money with?"

In other words, what are your own interests?
What do you think would be interesting to research and write about?
What do you want to help people with?

A good sentence to help you decide your niche is "I want to help people _____"

Helping people is the best way to make money in any business. Everyone wins. Short of that, pick something that you just find interesting.

There are literally thousands of affiliate programs, products, and ways to make money in any niche or industry if you get creative. All of that will come into focus in Level 3 of your training, so for now, we just need to look at getting your topic chosen, your website built, and then start creating awesome content for your business!
