About TaraEJH
Joined July 2016
Hi everyone. My name is Tara, I live in Ireland and I am a writer by trade and by nature. I am also a single parent, of three smashing children, and I want to provide for them in every way I can and still be physically around for them as much as possible. Working online appears to me to be the answer. I have chosen the image of the puppy for a few reasons: my profile picture is about 10 years old and I am currently working on setting up a new one. I am passionate about animals and breed puppies for The Guide Dog Association of Ireland. Labrador pups such as these are a joyful addition to my life. And lastly - who doesn't like puppies?! I am really looking forward to meeting you all. Warmest wishes

Great to see that you've added some goals Tara!

Working towards achieving these goals will happen as you take action on the lesson tasks here at WA. Ask questions when you have them, and take your time. This is not a race, and your time investment will have you up and running before you know it!

You're going to do just great!

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. Lovely to hear from you. I can't tell you how delighted I am to have found WA. I am blown away by what you and Carson are offering here.

My two main passions in life are - and always have been - writing and animals. I am a professional writer and have had five novels published so far. I also teach creative writing classes and adore teaching groups. I have had the idea for a while, and was working towards setting up my own blog, with the hope of using it as a platform for publicizing my own books. I also had the idea of setting up online creative writing courses and devising e-books in relation to this area.

However!! This last week I have discovered affiliate marketing. After some research I have read that dogs are a good niche area. So I was thinking of starting out with the niche of dog appreciation/humor. I am a genuine dog lover and I think writing funny articles about dogs would come very easily to me. As well as focusing on other areas I find fascinating such as dog therapy and canine psychology.

What do you think? Is it better to stick with my original idea, focusing on writing? Or are dogs a good place to start? And would dog appreciation/humor be considered a valid and/or specific enough niche?

I would greatly value your input.

Sorry for being so long winded!

Kindest regards

Tara

I would head in the dog therapy or psychology direction versus humor. Humor could be an aspect of your website, but I wouldn't make that your theme necessarily. If you can write, which you most definitely are a natural at, you could literally head in any direction you want with your niche.

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. :)

Hi again Kyle. I have been giving this some thought. When I filled in the blank, I kept coming up with the phrase "I want to help people that are depressed".
I am not sure what that means exactly! But it does make me want to set up a site that is uplifting in tone. I was thinking about dog therapy in its most general sense. For instance - "Have you been rescued by a rescue dog - share your story" - that kind of thing. As well as more serious and informative articles on dog therapy and how it works.

What do you think?

Thanks again.

Dealing With Depression?

That could definitely be your niche and if it is something that you are passionate about, definitely head in that direction.

Thanks a million Kyle. Just to clarify - do you mean dealing with depression in general? Or do you mean dogs helping people deal with depression?

You could narrow it down to dogs or even animals for depression. I do think you will have more flexibility and room to scale your business though if you make your domain something a bit more brandable and generic versus targeted a dogs for depression. Totally up to you here though Tara, I do like the direction you are heading and your creative thinking here.

Ok Kyle. Your personal insight is much appreciated. I will go off now and see about putting together a website on depression. Just have to come up with a cheery title first !!

Hello again Kyle
I am working away on the lessons - midway through lesson 8, course 1 - and really enjoying it.

However, I do have a niggling worry at the back of my mind.

We recently discussed the idea of me taking 'dealing with depression' as my niche and I have been happily running with this. But I do find myself wondering what products would tie in to a depression website when it comes to affiliate marketing. Just to be clear, I have no clue about affiliate marketing. But I was hoping you could shed some light on this ...

Also, having looked through depression on google, it does seem that most of these websites are medical in nature or set up by mental health charities etc.

What I had in mind was a site with a comforting feel to it - warm, vivid colors, beautiful natural images and a chatty, friendly tone to the writing. I don't want it to look or sound medical or text-bookish. And I definitely don't want to hold myself out as a medical expert or therapist, when I am not.

What do you think? Am I worrying unnecessarily?

Many thanks

Tara

Hello Sahbi

I really appreciate you sending me here. It is a great site - like something out of a dream, after trawling the internet for info on online marketing and stalking bloggers for months!

I have decided to go for dogs as my first niche. In your opinion, is dog humor/appreciation a specific enough niche?

Many thanks and kindest regards
