NICHES. The scariest word for most people when starting out. However, the idea of a niche should not scare you. Instead it should be exciting.

What is a Niche?

A niche is a distinct segment of a market, in other words an "audience".

When choosing a niche that fits you, you should be choosing something that is ideally an interest, a passion, a hobby, but it could be something that you would like to learn about. You don't need to BE an expert, you BECOME an expert.

I personally enjoy many different things. I enjoy basketball, I used to collect baseball cards, I like to go skiing, I am really interested in men's fashion, exercise, internet marketing, and I love everything about the online business world.

There are also many niches over the years that I have been very successful within without knowing anything about them before getting into them. Dieting, voice over IP, hosting...are just a few.

Almost anything you can think of is a niche and that is why we are going to get you to choose YOUR niche based on things that you are interested in. You can earn money online from absolutely every single niche because there are billions of people out there searching for information, for solutions, and spending billions of dollars or products/services every day.

The idea of a niche can be a little confusing at first, so I have created a video walk-through for this lesson "Choosing Your Direction - It Starts With a Niche" that is going to walk you through what a niche is, how you earn money through a niche, and I will get you choosing your initial direction online.

Check out the video below.

 

Your online business should not feel like a day job. Earning money online should be fun, and it is fun. This all starts with choosing a niche that you are interested in and will enjoy working with.

The MORE you enjoy doing something the LESS it feels like a job and the more productive you are going to be. Carson and I are immensely passionate about online business and teaching people how to make money online, so that is the niche we have chosen with Wealthy Affiliate.

Your niche could be anything, but at the core of your niche selection it should be something that you "like". Something you enjoy. Something you can talk about. Something you want to learn about.

Task 1: Choose Your Direction

We want you to select the niche that interests you most and gets you the most excited.

A few things that you should understand about niches are:

(1) You are going to be writing content within your niche
(2) You are going to be communicating within your niche
(3) You are going to be choosing products to promote within your niche
(4) You are going to get to help people within your niche.
(5) Your first niche PROBABLY won't be your last (so don't worry about it being perfect)
(6) Any SINGLE niche website can become a "full time" income/business

There is NO SUCH THING as choosing the wrong niche.

Also, note that you can always change your niche down the road. Just because you are choosing a niche now does not mean you will be in this particular niche forever. Either way, please do not spend a week choosing your niche. Within the next 15-30 minutes (maximum) you should have your "starting point" niche chosen.

If you have any questions about your niche, feel free to leave a question below and we will help you out.

If you are REALLY STUCK at this point and you cannot decide on a niche, perhaps you may be interested in the make money/affiliate marketing niche. If you don't have a niche at this point, this will be your niche and we have an Affiliate Bootcamp dedicated to those that are interested in promoting Wealthy Affiliate.

I have just joined, and already have a website that I have been making and I love it and I'm really happy with it.

To use WA, do I have to use their website builder to make the most of it, or can I continue to use the one I have already put many hours of work (and money) into?

Does anybody have any advice either way?

Hello! I would like to ask a few things.

How can I change my user profile?

I am building another website with Wordpress and I have bought the DIVI theme. Can I use it within the WA platform?

For now, I have just a starter plan and I am learning so much.

Thank you

Hello Helena,

Do you mean user profile in WA? As you did in your bio through Settings click your picture and settings there are several edits be careful with your name one you only have one more shot at that so make it count.

The WA Platform is a word press Platform Word Press supports all websites so yes your brand new shiny DIVI theme is in its rightful home!! ; ha ha

A plan sounds a very good start you'll go far ;

Oh great thank you Ramco!
I managed to change my profile name in the settings.

What I don´t see yet is my DIVI theme on the Wordpress dashboard. Is that because I am a starter and not premium at WA?

Thank you again!

Your most welcome Helena!!

You got it in one!! as free you are on the siterubix path as it where: where you only have one free siterubix site to practice with.

Once you are a premium member and have your own domain you are then allowed into wordpress dashboard proper...and of course the full range of facilities available to full premium members only..

WordPress offers thousands of themes and you should find or have access to you DIVI theme then!!

Have fun!

Rami
