Hi everyone! I'm Todd. New to this world of affiliate marketing. Eager to learn.

Spent the last 15 years living in Singapore with the last 10 running my own business as a freelance photographer. Decided after a decade of doing this to move on and try new things, expanding my knowledge and expertise. Currently in the US for now and spending my time learning all I can about setting up an online business.

Hope to connect with some of you soon.

Great goals! Creating goals is an important first step. After that, I suggest taking advantage of the well-designed and systematic training provided here at WA. When you have questions, don't be afraid to ask the talented and helpful mentors here for us. Also, it is good that you are willing to make the time commitment to succeed. Good luck progressing toward your goals.

Great goals Todd,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

I read a comment you had posted that you do photography. I was really into it but had to hit the pause. I lost my standing balance when I was injured so is quit difficult to stand and focus the camera when I am swaying around. I decided to work hard on my rehab then get my camera and lenses out again. Gave you a follow!

Hey Todd! Congrats and welcome to WA premium!

I think the most import thing to do with any new venture is to "plug in" and be consistent. Schedule time each day to do the training, work on your site and write content. You'll find that content is king. :)

Here's to great success with your WA journey and online endeavors!

toddbeltz Premium
Hi. Thanks for the kind welcome.

I haven't advanced with the training yet as I'm up to the part where you have to select a niche. No point in going past this if I can't figure out exactly what it is I want to do yet.

I'm also not a writer, or at least not good at it. Having to write content daily, even in the form of blog posts, is quite daunting especially considering I have no clue what it is I want to do.

Hope that in time I find a niche so I can get going with this. :)

Hey Todd!

Knowing what I know now and looking back to when I first started, I wish I just picked a niche within the first 24 - 48 hours. That could have been my started niche to learn with.

For me, it's so important to take action. It's so easy to overthink things and be paralyzed by indecision.

I didn't consider myself to be a writer either. It's something that I have to work at. I've found, that the more I write, the easier it gets and my post have improved over time as well.

Good luck!

Hi Zed,

Thanks again. I'm sure as I get going into the training I will have plenty of questions to ask.

I have one for now that maybe you can help with. I've gotten to the point in the training where I need to select my niche but as I'm having difficulty selecting one at this moment, I can't continue with the lessons as the next ones going forward all deal with setting up your website.

Would you suggest that I instead try out the affiliate boot camp so I can continue with the training?

Thank you and Merry Christmas.

Regards,

Todd

Depends on your goals Todd.

The bootcamp is for those who will want to promote WA instead of choosing a niche. So if you want to build a site dedicated exclusively to WA than you could choose the Bootcamp route ... However, even in this case the OEC training is needed, because you need to learn how to efficiently build that WA-centered site ...

And if you want to promote some products or services (meaning a given specific niche) than you definintely need to make a decision on your niche before moving forward.
Reply
toddbeltz Premium
Thanks Zed.

So basically I need to find that niche first before I continue with any training moving forward. Hope that I can find that idea soon enough as I'm really eager to get going with this.

What I'm stuck on is finding the right kind of niche. I have some ideas but need to make sure that it's the right fit first.

Thanks for this Zed.

Just had a read. Very valuable information here. Now it's down to choosing a niche that fits all the things that will make it profitable.

So many ideas though. I'm a photographer by trade but what I'm most passionate about is travel. Not sure how though I can profit off of both of these areas. Have some research to do first.

Hi Todd,

I am an Australian citizen and resident of Thailand, been involved in photography most of my life. For the past 10 years Iv'e been documenting my surrounds which I consider travel, street and portrait photography. I don't attempt to sell the images, I make photo books, Iv'e produced 13 since living in Thailand. Any photo related ideas as an online business, run it buy me if you want. I ran a photo website 15 years ago. Tools have changed dramatically since, concepts haven't.

Cheers

Hi Roo,

Great to hear from you. Thanks for reaching out. Nice to meet another fellow photographer.

As for me, born and raised in New York and have spent the last 15 years living in Singapore. Left in September and now back in the US for now. Hoping to create a new business where I can be financially free and not be location dependent but still make a living.

For the last 10 years, I have been a freelance commercial photographer specializing in food, lifestyle and interior photography. Over time though I have become a bit bored and jaded with the industry and lack of jobs. Maybe leaving Singapore was what I needed in order to get my passion back for something that I loved.

When I travel though, that is when I seem to be so alive and happy. Taking pics during my travels and not being pressured dealing with clients, is the type of photography that I have enjoyed. Just now I'm wondering how to combine my love of travel with the skills I currently have as a photographer.

I made the mistake over the years by just focusing on my work and not taking the time to really learn more about my industry, other cameras/gear, etc. I know all about my Canon gear but if someone were to ask me about Sony, for example, I would be clueless.

So now it's all about how to monetize what skills I do have with my passions and get into something that isn't already being done in such an oversaturated market.

Looking forward to connecting more. Merry Christmas.

Cheers,

Todd

Hello and welcome to Premium. This website is full of wonderful helpers and I have learnt to always use the search tab at the top of the desktop, the answer is usually in someone's free training. Type in topic, rather than long question.
There is an answer to just about every question, all you need to do is ask..
Aside from the Certification and Bootcamp courses, there is heaps of extra training. Check out the training classrooms as well as the live events. There are current as well as past events in here. You can find both these tabs on the left-hand side
Start playing with tabs and boxes on your dashboard, there is so much hidden information, just keep looking for it.
Enjoy Wealthy Affiliate. There are lots of people here only too happy to help you along the way with encouragement and helpful tips. Wealthy Affiliate is about training, but that is just a small part of this wonderful community. If you participate as well as train, you will gain so much more.
cheers

H!! And welcome to WA Premium!! You will not regret your decision to go Premium! The information available here is never ending! And the training is incredible, and you won’t find anything like it, anywhere else!! Take it ALL in!!

Follow the training! I cannot stress this enough. Do not skip around. Do the lessons in the order in which they are. As well as the tasks that follow each of those lessons. I often jumped ahead in my training, to only later really regret it. Take my word for it, it’s not worth it. Stay on course.
Go at your pace. Slow and steady is my new rule. You'll find you can't wait to learn more in the following days. You’ll want to learn more!! It ignites a new passion within you. It did me! Gave me back my purpose for living! There were a few lessons that I had to watch twice. If that's what you have to do, do it!

And soon you will have yourself an awesome website. Amazing direction, and the tools that you need to succeed in whatever it is you want to do!

You CAN do this!!

Be awesome! Be amazing!! And be successful!!!

Thanks so much, Laura. Appreciate the advice.

I've completed 8/28 tasks already in the "Getting Started" section but now I'm stuck on selecting a niche. Seeing as I don't have a clear niche to get into at this moment, do you recommend that I go over and start doing the affiliate boot camp training instead? I don't want to let a lack of figuring out my niche stop me from learning. I realized that without a clear definition of what niche to get into, I can't set up a website yet in the next lesson.

Hope to come up with my niche soon enough.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas. Thanks again.

Cheers,

Todd
