About SusieSoapbox
Joined February 2018
Let's see where to begin, well for starters my name is Susannah; nickname Susie Q for short. I have to say I am so glad I came across this website. Through the years I've been looking for ways to explore a personal website that supports not just that but a voice and a way to empower and support others. I am a high energy people person with a creative need for innovation who is constantly looking for change and ways to solve problems outside of the box. Oh yeah and I have an open mind and love to explore other people's mind.

I eat and breathe inspiration and well I hope to become a success on this new and exciting journey. That's all for now but i'm sure I will write more as I continue :)

Hello SusieSoapbox

Congratulations on going Premium.

I just wanted to say that while there is much value to be had here at Wealthy Affiliate, it can sometimes seem very overwhelming, with everything that has to be done.

My advice from experience is to focus totally on one of the training directions, the green certification OR the Bootcamp, and to stick with that until you have finished it.

Wishing you every success with your business.

~Mark

SusieSoapbox Premium
Thank you Mark! I will keep that it in mind. I started the green certification so I will take your advice and go with that first before heading into the boot camp.

Cheers!

Hi again Susannah,

It's great to see you moving along here! I see you've got your profile filled out, which is awesome. Hopefully you've been engaging with the valuable community here, getting your questions answered, meeting new people, etc.

I know when I first started here, those first few days were an exhilarating experience to say the least. To be honest, it's still an exhilarating experience for me even to this day. :)

Remember that if you EVER need a hand with anything, I'm more than willing to help out. Or you can drop a "reply" here if you just wanna chat or have a quick question.

See you soon!

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! :)

SusieSoapbox Premium
Hey Kyle! Thank you. Yes I watched the video last night, and so before going further to the next step I did some research into niche ideas and wrote down some notes. This might be a little long but I will just let it out here.

"Notes for my Niche website"

*Providing a discussion forum? Say perhaps a "Soapbox " topic for discussion each week?

Goal #1 is to bring a sense of belonging by encouraging interactions.

Goal #2 is to how I can differentiate it from competitors through my storytelling. I just need to see if a product or service can fill in the niche. Also to find a brand that consists engagement of building relationships offering expert blog content in that niche area.

So to fill in the blanks of "I want to help people" I'd say here are some ideas:

1. Helping women feel beautiful about themselves. I have been brainstorming for a few years now a "Love your Body" project that started in September of 2012 when I finally overcame a 20 year eating disorder I never thought I would. So I want others to know they can truly overcome and to truly love themselves and to also be able to feel like they can express their "inner kitten" too and we together as women should be able to embrace and come together rather than putting eachother down.

2. I love talking and giving insights and advice about love sex and relationships. Not to go too deep here but another example topic.

3. I am working on a memoir but not sure really what to incorporate into that yet.

4. I'm into all types of advocacy - broad so I can narrow that down

5. I love inspiration and love to inspire others - perhaps books would be say a market for that however might be too broad too have to narrow down

6. I want to help people - my audience to fully embrace where they are right now

I hope this isn't too left field so any type of feedback is most appreciated thank you :)

Awesome, you are creative and you certainly have lots of ideas. Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

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. :)

PS. Your first niche doesn't have to be your last and it probably won't be.
Reply
SusieSoapbox Premium
Hey Kyle thank you for responding. So since writing you prior my mind finally made up at least one niche I think I can work with! Since yesterday and as of today I have thought of perhaps 5 more websites I could maybe start ( granted 3 after premium membership :)

I will keep that in mind especially as I start to fill in content and figuring out how I will guide and format it.

Cheers!

Susannah

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

PS. I hope you are looking forward to an absolutely amazing week ahead! :)

Hey Susannah,

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! It's great to have you here, and I can guarantee that you'll find this community always willing to help you succeed.

I wanted to mention a couple of things that'll help you get started here. The first thing you'll want to do is to fill out your profile. This step should only take a couple of minutes. Here's a video that walks you through the simple process: Filling out your profile is very important in this community, as it will give you more trust. People will be more willing to help you out knowing that they're helping a REAL person. ;)
It also shows that you're serious about learning to succeed here.

After that's done, swing on over to the "Get Started Here" training (the big green button on the left). This course will show you exactly what you'll be learning here in an easy to understand way. It'll also show you how to get your own site up and running in no time. Here's a link to the course: If you ever get stuck or need any help, PLEASE contact me and I will be more than willing to help you out. I want to see you succeed Susannah, so I will do anything I can to help out.

I just wanted to add that you don't ever have to upgrade to the Premium membership here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.

Anyway, like I said before, it's GREAT to have you here. I can't wait to see your progress, so what are you waiting for? Lol, but really, the best thing you can do right now towards becoming successful here is to fill out your profile, and get started with the training.

Hey there! I've started the course 1 and I am excited to keep going. I do agree it takes hard work to be successful in anything and this is the first site that I have found that represents that. Thank you.

Awesome, keep it up! Sounds like you understand the hard work involved. A lot of people don't for some reason. You can guess who becomes successful :)

If you ever need any help or guidance as you work through the course, just give me a shout or ask the community.

Good luck!
