Introduction to Searching for a Product to Sell Online
For newbies to Wealthy Affiliate and new online entrepreneurs, making the decision to begin an online business is an exhilarating journey, but perhaps a little intimidating as well. It is a whole new world that can be overwhelming and extremely challenging to navigate. Perhaps you have tried starting your own online business before or it could be you are using the WA Training that Kyle has created under the Online Entrepreneur Certification classes to build your very first online business. Whatever your situation, every single new business will offer its own unique opportunities and difficulties. I know when I was first started in April 2015, I was unprepared for the amount of information and learning that went into affiliate marketing.
Everything from selecting a product, examining and evaluating it, assessing the market, sourcing and researching inventory, building your online storefront, marketing and content promotion, social media outreach, SEO and keyword research, there is so much to learn. For those whom have not done so yet, be sure to check out Jay's Training, because he offers great lessons that cover much of this. Jay offers weekly webinars on up-to-date and timely issues. You do need to be a premium member to access his webinars.
It is said that one of the challenging and difficult hurdles for e-commerce site builders and online entrepreneurs is the first step of figuring out which products to sell online and what your niche should be. This seemingly impossible and mountainous choice can become the reason most people never actually start their online business in the first place or give up before it has a chance to take off. It is my hope you do not become one of those people, thus, the reason I created this WA tutorial.
In an effort to help new WA members I attempted to put together this tutorial to help you focus on a product and niche, so you can get started building your online business.
In this tutorial you will learn the fundamental types of product opportunities that are out there. I will show you the best places to search for ideas. You will see how to understand market demand and evaluate your niche idea and finally, you will get an idea on where to find affiliate companies to work with and what products you want to promote on your niche site.
