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


==> Go here if that is you.

If you have any questions about your "niche" or direction of your business and you want to get feedback from the community, leave them below and we will be happy to help.

Onto the next lesson, building a website! Exciting stuff is ahead! :)

Hi, yes you can however the learning curve would you steeper as communications would cease up, however it is possible. It can take 3 - 6 months to see any income. This is a long term commitment and takes months of consistent work

However you could remain a starter indefinitely and your siterubix subdomain remains valid for six months.

Actually I have too niches am basing on and this too niche is my favorite one is hanging out book camping niche and the other one is health and fitness product, so I really don't know the right one to go for at this moment am kind of confused so I really need a good feed back with this,

Hi,

Which of the two, you are passionate about more and can write lots of content. Healthy and Fitness product is something you would promote vs Health and fitness, however too broad and need narrowing down.

What type of fitness, to what group, what will you be writing about, what issues will you be discussing? Tips, training, frequency etc

Again the camping part is same why type where and to whom. who's going to benefit most from what you have to offer. Who's your target audience?

However it has got to be a niche a website, but would advice going with the one site for starters.

Thanks I really appreciate your concept on my answer but like your word am going to focus on the one I can right about and get a tagetable audience for the sales

Hello! Ok I surrender! Can I delete my website and start over?! I was getting along fairly well till I got to the Seo plugin, and then somehow I got off course.😪. So I guess I need to just start over. (Actually I need a niche). Ty anyone got a suggestion?

Peace, Larry.

Hope you figured out your AIOSEO plugin issue.

As for niche ideas. I am attaching a blog that may give you some ideas. If you are referring to your xxx.siterubix.com site YES you can delete it and start over.

Thank you for responding. Sounds like solid advice and now that I’ve stepped away for a few minutes I seem to have recovered some clarity. I don’t believe I have done anything that can’t be fixed. So I’m h he ping to review the last three videos and see if I missed something.
Thank again I do so appreciate your input. If you don’t mind I would like to follow you.
Respectfully,
Larry.

Hi , thank you for the response and the links I’m pretty sure that niche thing worked itself out!! We will see. I will for sure check those links out.

I’m still knocking around seo trying to figure out why there’s something sandwiched in my title that I thought I had deleted. Also trying to figure out where the two h2 tags are.... grrrr. Anyhow thank you so much!
Peace and prosperity
Larry

When you reference two H2 tags, do you ever use the Text tag in WordPress? It can look overwhelming at first but learning how to use that tab can save some time. You can put your own h2 tags in. Learning how is by looking at other H2 tags in the content body.

Did you delete all the prepopulated title page tag suggestions by AIOSEO? Is this causing the problem with your title?

If it's our own domain you will loose it, so perhaps you just need to adapt it a bit. If it's a siterubix then delete bit and start again

Hi
I have just finished watching the build a website video, which was really good. There is so much information on how to build your site that i am worried i will not remember what to do when it actually comes to starting, should this be a concern for me?
kind regards
Neil

It is good to complete each task for each lesson. They are meant to pilot you through various stages in running a website and to make you put into practice what you learned in a lesson as you move to another one. They ensure that you grow or advance as you follow one lesson to another as design by Wealthy Affiliates. I don't know if I answered you question?

Yes I believe in the team that's why not having enough money to survive for the rest of the month I max out my account in order to finish level 1 and grow in knowledge and statue in this program. I never have had success online with various other companies before but I believe that this is the season with this team. As such, you have my commitment to allow this team to prove yourself to me. I'm currently doing a 9-5 as a teacher and 8 additional hours with this team. Everyday now since I have started to work on my courses.

After finishing level 1 I still believe that I would need more help to do 3 more websites so that I can get the hang of it. After transferring to my domain my privacy policy is missing and I don't know how to sort this out.

May I suggest starting off with the one site in the beginning as it takes a lot of work and effort to set up correctly. Once you know better the process, by all means you may have a second, third site .
Have you added your privacy policy page to your menu. You can do that in Appearance > Menus.

Also worth empty browsers cache, refresh and try again. Try URL in a different browser or a mobile device.

Kindly let us know how you get on.
