Many newbies to the Wealthy Affiliate training platform come here with various different expectations and goals. But the majority come here to learn how to earn revenue online while working from home and doing so in a way that is fun.
Though this is a concept that is quite attractive, it does require some smart planning before setting off on your training and building journey. Unfortunately many are so over-excited or overwhelmed by this concept and they draw a blank when having to choose a niche.
Choosing your niche is the important first step and it should be your choice. There will be those who make the mistake of thinking that the niche they have selected is too competitive and/or over saturated. These are both concerns that are highly overrated.
ANY NICHE CAN BE PROFITABLE
You can be quite profitable in any niche market you choose to be involved with. The trick is not to choose a niche based on how much money you think you can earn but rather how much information you can provide to help people who are interested in your niche.
It is relatively important to select a niche you have a passion for, one you have a great interest in, because it will show in the content you write. When you are passionate about something, what can most of us do with that passion? Talk endlessly about it.
Think of it this way. If you wanted to take a road trip with your friend and you had a couple of exciting destinations in mind but cannot choose which one, would you feel happy if your friend picked a different destination and told you they would guide you there?
At first it might seem like an exciting concept. But after hours of them telling you which turn to make and which road to take, not knowing when your destination would come, could make you lose interest. This is not what you want to happen when choosing the niche for your website business.
Take the time to learn the simple concept of what is a niche and which niches you are involved with. We are all involved with many niches every single day, just pick the one that you enjoy the most. Do not think that this will be your only niche website. You will more than likely create a few as the years go by.
NEXT UP = Why choosing your own niche will yield better results in the long run.
I can find niches for people just by talking to them for a bit, finding out what they like and what they enjoy doing. It is not hard to find many niches. But newbies want to make money quickly and that is just not how it happens.
They then give up on the simple process of finding a niche and just accept Bootcamp. But if being in the MMO niche is not a good fit for them, they will most likely fail. This is why they need to take their time and find a niche they like. Everyone has something they like doing or using.
When I joined WA I had no idea what a niche was really all about and then Kyle said that it is a group of people looking for a specific product or service. That is a very simple and easy to understand explanation.
Millions of people wear waterproof leather boots
Millions of people drive pickup trucks
Millions of people like traveling to Disney World
Millions of people buy baby clothing
Millions of people enjoy the movie Star Wars
Millions of people play video games
Millions of people use an iPhone
Millions of people want to live healthier lives
Millions of people love watching sports
Millions of people buy t-shirts
Millions of people wear athletic shoes
Millions of people enjoy flat screen TVs
The above twelve are all niche markets. Go to a newsstand and look at the magazine rack. Each of those magazines represent a niche market. So understanding what is a niche is simple. To find in oneself what a person enjoys should be a simple process too.
But many newbies, not all, wrongfully search out a niche that they feel will be the most profitable for them. Again like Kyle says in the training, every niche can be profitable and when it is a niche your have an interest in, you can create content that will convert.
As a traveller ( I constantly travel) I actually found signing up to Affiliate companies a nightmare, as they all want an address, a phone number, a bank account....etc.
This is all very well if you are living in one home, but I don't. I have been on the road over 2 years.
Also, importing and exporting goods is a nightmare if in the cosmetics industry, which I am.
I am still struggling with that.
Amazon....only pay into a bank account if you have an address in the USA, otherwise it's a cheque! ...to a home address.
All these things have pushed me to leave the affiliate Bootcamp to the end, Lol.
I am glad I have been concentrating on the lessons first.
Thank you for this training it will help new members get on track.
I have been with WA since 2013 and I've never really understood the difference between the Affiliate Bootcamp and the Certification Courses--until now. I started with the Affiliate Bootcamp first because I did not have a niche. What you have said in this post makes a lot of sense, so I will start the Certification Course and see what happens. Thanks for explaining the difference between the two courses.
There is a reason Kyle, Carson and everyone eho promotes WA, will recommend a newbie start with the Certification Course first. Because it will teach you EVERYTHING.
I probably shouldn't do this but I find that I'm flying through the bootcamp with no problems, even skipping some parts cause I already know how to do a lot of things. This could be a mistake though because my 2nd site has not been indexed by google yet and its been 10 days, had I missed something? If it doesn't get indexed in another week I'll have to go over everything again slowly... ah, should have just done that the first time.
I plan on having 4-5 blogs in the next year or two. diversification is the key to a reliable passive income, you never wanna put all your eggs on one site.
At the very least skim through them because there will always be some little thing you may have forgotten or that me be explained in a slightly more understandable way.
If you want to see right away what if any of your website has been indexed, just go to Google and do a site search by typing
Make sure your domain name does not have the www or the https in front of it.
