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 am new here, and excited to be here. I learnt about this from my friend who is in Nigeria, That was in 2018. I tried to join the WA, at that time in Nigeria, but was told that I could not as it was not available in my country. I wanna know why this is the case. My friend who told me of this, was going to introduce me to MOBE, but because it was down at that time, and still is, he took my own offer, to join my network marketing company, where he is currently doing well. So my question is I wanna really know why this is not currently not allowed in that country, because I also intend to promote WA in Nigeria. I am currently studying at a University in Dominica, that's why I am able to join; as I said, I had earlier tried to sign in to WA while I was in Nigeria. I await answer on this, so that I know if I can promote this to my down-lines in Nigeria

Okay. Thank you. but is this available in other African countries besides Nigeria? I was also asking myself why is it not available there. Is it not time we also took this good news to them? Just thinking.. Because my three brothers in Nigeria will be so excited to be on this platform.

I wonder how I can set up my future page to be bi-lingual with the following requirements:
1.) SEO should be possible and not disturbed by different languages
2.) There will be a pattern like articles
a,b,c,d, f available in language a
a, c,d,e available in language b
( so no exact mirror imaging of every page)
3.) nevertheless I want an easy way to ideally copy paste a post, re-using structure and imagery and only replacing translated text.
4.) users might want to switch between languages, but they will mostly stay in one language setting right from the beginning ( but I might reference things like "Post about xyz, only available in the English version and link from German version to English version).

What do I need to consider / understand / take care right from the start so as not to feel sorry later, once a lot of content has already been created and structures might be more difficult to change?

I hope there's somebody out there who has already been running multi-lanugage wordpress pages and can give me direction.

I think most people will have their own browser translator, so I wouldn't focus too much on translating your website. Just my opinion though.

Hi .
As Diane says follow the training closely.
A little tip I used because my memory does not retain technical info. I opened 2 windows and as I watched and listened to the videos, I paused and then implemented the training straight away so as not to forget it. The other thing is if you try to do something and it doesn't work 1st time you don't have find the relative training.
Good luck

I have completed the 9 training modules and was reviewing my pages and menus when I decided to try a manual log-in. I typed my website URL 'name'; SafetyAtHome followed by .siterubix/wp-admin (SafetyAtHome.siterubix/wp-admin/) but I did not get in. Instead, I got some Google search results related to siterubix/wp-admin/. When I removed the /wp-admin component, hoping to hit my website I received an advisory that the site was not secure.
Any ideas?

I currently have "Home", "About Me", and "Privacy Policy" on my site and have published seven articles thus far that all show up under "Home". Is it a good idea to break these articles down into sub-menus under "Home", or maybe to add more menu items to the three that I currently have? If so, how do I go about doing this? Thanks in advance.

I recommend creating categories and then assigning posts to one or more categories. You can then place a categories menu with each submenu being a specific category.

I did this on my drone site: https://mavicmaniacs.com
