About StubbyS
Joined February 2019
Hi, my name is Petra and I live in sunny Queensland, Australia. I burnt out in my nursing job, and then when running my own massage business for 4 year. My hubby keeps telling me ... you don't need to work... but I want to earn enough money to be able to afford my horse madness. I own 3 horses, love hanging around them and learning about horsemanship, dressage, and equine body work. Courses, competitions and feeding all costs money. I was working to afford my horse hobby, but there has to be an easier way.
So here I am ... and for now I am happy to earn enough to allow me to pursue my horse hobby and put some money aside for travel and get aways with my horses.

Hello Petra and Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you may have come to the conclusion that internet marketing is a steep learning curve and there is always something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 480+ blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.

Thank you Robert for your kind words and offer.

I am familiar with WordPress having used it for over 10 years now but marketing is a totally different kettle of fish.

I am looking forward to the learning and stepping outside my comfort zone a bit.

Loving it so far :)

Hi and congratulations on going premium with WA. It's a wise decision.

Your best bet from here is to follow all of the 5 course, 50 lesson Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

But the really important step is to apply what you're learning WHILE YOU'RE LEARNING IT.

I can't emphasize this enough.

Not only will it make the training stick, but in no time at all you'll have your first WA website up and running.

Google ranking and monetization will follow inevitably.

If you're stuck any time, just post a question.

One of us at WA will answer it and you'll be off again.

It's a journey and you've just taken your first and best step.

I wish you all the best.

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! :)
StubbyS Premium
Thank you Jack,I didn't have to think hard about my 'first' niche. I am a Western Herbal Medicine practitioner and have used herbs to treat my horses, friend's horses and some clietnts' horses with good effect. I used to make up my own blends, held stock of dried herbs, etc just to see me throwing out a lot of it because of spoilage. It cost me a lot of money and I am not doing it anymore. So a while back I came up with the idea to 'consult' and recommend herbal formulations but then put clients in charge of ordering the ingredients or ready made products and put it all together themselves. No stock, no responsibility if they get things wrong when blending. My sole responsibility is to give sound, well researched advise (and am insured for that) and link them with suppliers, etc.
I've also been asked to teach... I started developing a course... so much to do, so much to think about, so much research... but... there are plenty of good courses out there already so the plan is to find them, hope they have an affiliate programme and link my 'clients' with these courses rather then going through all that work myself.
Of course I have some freebies and work on a sales funnel and may charge for the 'consultation' as well.
I am hoping this will get me some direct income doing what I love ... talk all things herbal, plus passive income through linking my clients with herbal product suppliers and herbal schools.
What ya think... doable?
JackCao Premium
Of course! If you can find the right affiliate products for what you've described, I think you have a winner. Have you found them yet? Because that is the key for you to start your niche site.
StubbyS Premium
Thanks Jack for your vote of confidence.
I've been doing research into Affiliate programmes that would cater for my niche. When it comes to dried herbs not so much luck but have found a supplier who is willing to work with me. How that will look like I don't know yet. So I asked for more info.
iHerb is one I am looking at, and I found a few others as well so am busily reading their affiliate offerings. au.Amazon as well... but feel that I need to create a bit more content before they are happy to have me.
I am also looking at Herbal Schools with affiliate programmes, and then of course... whatever products I can come up with myself. I.e. blending bespoke blends for horse and rider. The company I found will blend for me and drop ship... so something to nut out with them.
For now though ... I am focusing on going through the training... learning before earning. Write content and, later on, I can always put the affiliate links into what I have written.
JackCao Premium
What I also recommend is to target human beings as consumers as well (not only horses). Because the horse niche is a narrowed niche with small audiences, so I am afraid you might hit a roadblock in the future. You might want to consider researching other successful affiliate sites (identify who their audiences are, and what niche they are in) that are closely related to your niche. The reason I recommend that is because those affiliates already have a success path, and by following their footsteps, you could achieve their results, if not better. I am pretty sure you will have lots of ideas while researching your competitors.

I think that you are going to get a lot of value from it, so do subscribe to my Channel. It is brand new (as of 5 September 2018), so pardon me if there is only a few videos. I will continue to post the training videos on the channel every week. Here's the link to my YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCY7IhZ5Uq_qFB9PgN8Rjy3g

2) Subscribe to my 10 day email course to help you get started (if you haven't already). Please let me know your email address so that I can put you on the list.

3) Those who ask questions, interact with the community are far more likely to learn faster and meet their goals. Watch this video here to learn how to maximize your community reach in WA More buddies means more support. More support means more success.

4) You can get started learning how to make money by doing your Level 1 Certification Course. Here's the link to the course: Remember that you can ask any questions you want in the live chat, on your personal blog, or in the Getting Started Classroom here:
