That's definitely something that you can get by dedicating time and being consistent in your efforts Natalie. An hour or two is a great way to start so you don't get overwhelmed, and I'm sure that over time, as you start seeing results, you'll want to ramp up your efforts to see faster results!

Things are going well. I have been plowing through as much as i can training-wise but also had no internet all weekend and today my trial expires so kinda sad about that. I haven't decided if I will do the $19 trial only because well, money is very tight this week. If I dont, are the training videos still available and I mostly just lose ability to chat and interact like this?

Thanks! So i have started 3 pages now and am not sure which one to go full force in to force that would have the most potential.

Zipperkids - kids with heart defects/heart disease
Mombiebear - the cute and funny baby stuff
And just today i created
Corneroffice - How to get promoted. I have been a hiring manager for several years and thought about an informative honest yet funny site to help people that keep applying for promotions but never get them. I would want to be an anonymous author on this one so I could truely be honest and share experiences and keep anonymity. I am feeling strongest about this one today.. what do you think. Pages within it would be 'what to wear/not wear', Resume, Laughable Moments (True Stories), etc... all the pitfalls people make etc.. and why i would not promote someone like that etc...

I thought more about it and am thinking the MombieBear I could focus on potty training info and tips and that is where I could fit in some of the cute stuff like training pants.

But I am stuck on the other 2. I think i have a lot of info to give on both and that the How to Get Promoted would get more visitiors and convert easier. On that same note, is that something that would make a good website or maybe just a good ebook. How do you determine which is better to do (website or ebook?

I think since the mombie bear idea has a clearer set of products involved, that's a good place to start. The Corner Office idea is also great, but could be a longer term project you start after you gain some experience with online marketing.

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! :)

Yes! I put something in the chat earlier. I jumped ahead and had created the website url with thoughts in mind but am second guessing it. My 1st NICHE idea was training pants for toddlers. Sounds goofy but it really is hard to find cute affordable ones! I feel like something like that could branch in to other toddler/baby items such as cute/funny binkies, onesies, etc... I like the term Mombie (Mom + Zombie because we are so tired all the time), but i know that is overused so i came up with Mombie Bear (Mom + Zombie + Momma Bear). With Mombie Bear brand in mind I am not sure what would be the best niche/product to start with.

Then i was also thinking something related to something personal to me. My son was born with heart defects and the community is small and hard to find for support etc in this area. But... I am not sure how to actually make money of anything in this niche so i have been straying away from it.

Any advice would be great!
Thanks
Natalie

Any niche can make money, even without selling anything. Check out my recent post: That being said, I think you'll find a wider audience with cute baby products, so I would stick with that niche as you have already started to do.

As for branding, any idea you can come up with will work. MombieBear will work! Maybe the "through line" for your baby clothes niche idea could be "quirky and fun" baby clothes. Clothing is just such a broad idea, that it might be too much to handle for one site. That way you could cover fun onsies, unique training pants, etc.

What do you think?
