About Slibby
Joined October 2016
Hi, my name's Steve. I'm very interested in internet marketing, domaining, and all related adventures. I've read several books on the subject, and I've tried other training programs. I like the depth, breadth and community aspects of wealthy affiliate, and I look forward to learning a lot here.

I was in a web company for about 7 years a long time ago, where I was a jack of all trades. I've also been a writer, and math teacher, and I even walked dogs for many years--yes, I'm a dog person too. I worked on some archaeological sites when I was much younger, and I majored in anthropology/archaeology back in school, with a lot of science courses too.

I have a wide range of interests, from science and science fiction to history, anthropology, good books, art and drawing, games, and more. Despite a promising start I never got good at poker. I think I'm pretty well-rounded, which I hope will come in handy picking a niche.

Steve,

I see you decided to, what I like to call "Take the Leap" as well. First I would like to say Congratulations. Not only on taking the first step towards a better career opportunity, but also the first step at a better life. Not only are you about to embark on a major learning and building adventure. You also get to share this experience with many like minded people like yourself, on that very same adventure. I myself am no expert, but if there is anything I can do to help you along the way, please don't hesitate to ask. I wish you all the best in your future here at Wealthy affiliate.

Best Wishes,
-Kenny

The Diamond Traffic is my approach to how I get unlimited traffic in absolutely any niche. I know you will love it Steven...not to mention that this is just the icing on the cake as to what you will get within the Premium membership. :)

Great to have you here at WA and I look forward to working with you!

Slibby Premium
Kyle, I can't argue with unlimited traffic! :)

Is there a time limit on this training? Should I do it now or wait til I finish the beginning training plan first?

Thanks

Steve

Kyle Premium
No time limit, do this whenever you like. :)

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! :)

I do have a couple of niche questions. What's the best way to flask you about this, a pm?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can ask them here, that is fine.
Reply
Slibby Premium
Great! Here's a question, then:

When we are picking a niche, and have chosen a few categories we find interesting, should we do keyword research with the tools to make sure that there are searches going on within a given range of search volume? If so, what volume range do you recommend? If not, then how can we be sure there's enough interest out there to warrant a site?

Thanks

Steve

All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 3.1 BILLION people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. They will all have 10,000's of potential keywords as well, so don't worry about a "niche" having enough traffic or opportunity, it will always be a case where there is too much opportunity. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

Slibby Premium
Thank you. Could I make a niche about popularizing science, scor archaeology profitable? That would be easier than a lot of commercial topics, for me.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, if that is a passion of yours and you want to help people within that niche, you can absolutely head in that direction.
Reply
Slibby Premium
That's very encouraging, but how do you monetize a niche like that, which isn't generally seen as very commercial?
Reply
Slibby Premium
We want people who are in a buyer's frame of mind, in some way, don't we?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Or to help people get there yes. That is what you are going to be learning as you build out your content, creating content with "intent".

I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Steven. :)
Reply
Slibby Premium
Yes, I need to complete the training. That will explain a lot, I'm sure!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, it most definitely will. If you ever do feel stuck just let me know though! :)

Thank you Kyle. I will seriously consider the upgrade. I look forward to learning a lot here. Is there a typical time frame for how long before people who do take action and follow the program start to earn money?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Everybody earns money at a different rate, so it really depends on the person. I have actually created a discussion on this that will put things into perspective for you here: Have a read of that, I know it will give you a lot of insight into this exact topic. ;)

The first month is typically your foundation building stage. In order to build a website that earns you consistent revenue, you need this foundation. After this, you are going to start seeing traffic and as you build this out, there are many different ways in which you can generate revenue.

Personally it took me into my 3rd month of busting my butt to make my first dollar online, by month 6 though I was making consistent income and by the year mark, I was almost full time.

But guess what would have happened if I quit during those first two "trying" months. I would not be where I am at today. Just wanted to put things into perspective for you.

I am in this journey with you, so is the community here at WA. If you want to jump in, work hard, take action, and persist. Amazing things can and will happen!
