Hello All,
I'm a 63 year old newbie, many years spent as a freelancer in engineering supervision jobs. Now the calls are becoming fewer, it is time to no longer be dependent on the ups and downs of other people's business!

My areas of interest are food - cooking, travel, flying, drones, diving - professional and sport, skiing and many, many more....

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate Premium!

Glad that you joined us.

Wealthy Affiliate 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 its 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

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! :)

Hello Kyle,
The amount of interest and warmth pouring forth from the WA Community is awesome!
The trick will be to balance the communication aspect against the actual 'work' to be done, however I expect that to even out at some point.
Basically the reason I finally took the step to proceed along this path has come forth from my age / ageism at large and ageism in the work field.
At the end of the day, you cannot force people to contract you, if in their perception you no longer fit the mould. I assure you that an old dinosaur in my particular field knows where the skeletons are kept.
These frustrations have led me to consider that there are any number of people out there who are over let us say 55, who are by no means 'Senior' in their health or thinking, however that is not the way they are treated.
Much of 'classic' marketing and advertising is focused on so-called millenials as the be-all end-all. I beg to differ, as the older generation still runs things, sometimes not visibly, and ultimately control the most wealth.
So my 'niche' will encompass people over 55, the issues in all areas of life that concern them, events, developments and opinions.
More importantly, I will point out products that are of interest which can make their life and resolve some of the challenges met on a daily basis.
The niche may narrow at some points, however, for the moment, I would like to keep it wide in the sense of a lifestyle movement.

Something like: www.BoomerFount.net/com/eu

Yeah, I just wouldn't recommend being too broad or it will be tough for you to define who you are and who specifically you are helping. The more specific, the more of an authority you can become, the more people you can help specifically, and the more success.

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. :)
