I went with Fitnessforu. I'm thinking since we are all different our strategy and our thoughts about our fitness should be yours. The workout clothes and shoes, exercise, diet and supplements should be personal to you. Even where you exercise is a choice. I want to give everyone that choice. I'm just unsure how to do that.
jghwebbrand Premium
we can see why you don't know what to do next. Your niche is too broad. It is best to start by focusing on a group of people and how specifically you wish to help them initially, You can expand your niche scope later. But of the things you have listed, workout clothes and shoes, exercise, diet and supplements, which one are you most passionate about. How can you help someone with your choice? What are the associated problems you can help them with.

Here's an example of narrowing your niche. to start.
How to narrow a niche down How To Expand Your niche later A niche should be for a targeted group of people
wow that's a great idea thinking for the comfort of the next person
TheAbie Premium Plus
Fitness is broad and it needs be niched down dramatically.

You ought to discuss an aspect of fitness to a qualified group of people who would be your target audience (that could be beginners or another group you have in mind), you would help people by giving them advice on an aspect, walk them through your journey and then promote products however relevant.

Also a niche is not a product vs a subject.

The more focused a niche website is starting out, the better chance it has to start having traction and traffic.

Please be aware you also need to create lots of content addressing issues related to your focused niche website.

Most important is to be passionate and genuinely interested in your niche

I am watching level 1 getting started training, and I just finished the how to build your website... My question is, is absolutely everything I need to run an affiliate business integrated into WA? Do or wil I need to have things like Bluehost, or Click Funnels, Click Magic... or anything like that?
TheAbie Premium Plus
No unless you want to. However primarily upkeep of your subscription to the platform and your dot com domain name.
jghwebbrand Premium
Hosting for 10 websites is included in your Paid Premium membership so Bluehost is not needed. To supplement the Online Entrepreneur Certification training. (Levels 1 - 5) you will find webinars (menubar classes tab) that will show you how to make your own sales funnels how to use social media and so much more.

Since WA uses WordPress you have access to thousands of no charge themes and plugins for added functionality. So WA is a very comprehensive platform with training, tools and 24 x 7 support.
My idea for a niche may be combining multiple niches, but that might be good as it can broaden my income from various sources. The thought is to make a website that directs people to merch for various entertainment sources (Movies, TV, Anime, Video Games, Sports are what I have thought of now). Say someone wants a Walking Dead hoodie, for example, that would be on my website within the TV category with links to different options from different sellers. Maybe they love Rocky and want some Rocky shorts? Same thing. The site could provide links to tons of stuff...NFL jerseys, mugs with characters from different media, clothing based on the media, stickers, wallets, flags, posters, and whatever else I can think of. Of course I'd probably like to begin with only part of this idea as I learn how to build it out, but the more think about this the more I think I can really gain a LOT of traffic on this site!
feigner Premium
ok, so how are you going to attract the attention of google and your customers...
why would they come to your site...
why would google rank your site full of links...
what makes your site stand out...
unless you are driving traffic to your site then the chances are that you may not have any visitors...
you could use pinterest to gain some traffic...or other social media...
jghwebbrand Premium
I get the feeling that you want to be a big ecommerce site with a lot of products you like. The challenge will be how to get traffic to your site and how will you get it to rank?
If your website is just products then it would just be yet another shop among the millions already out there and Google would not rank your site high enough to be found.

That is why WA training suggests you choose a focus for a targeted group of people. For example I like camping. So my niche is to help new campers with the essentials they need to have a safe and enjoyable camping experience. There are many informational things I can share about camping (the how tos, whys, cans and cautions) Plus there are related products I can write product review about. My website is all about camping so that is what the visitors and search engines will know it for. And that is how it ranks and grows in traffic and authority.

Who do you really want to help and why and how? You website is for people who want help and are looking for something.
TheAbie Premium Plus
The recommendation is to focus on ONE site starting out as it takes lots of effort and work get it going, however once you know what you are doing, then the learning curve would be less steeper to scale up.

And so it is ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche. Otherwise you'd confuse your visitors and google.

The more focused a niche website is starting out, the better chance it has to start having traction and traffic.

You ought to discuss an aspect of a focused niche to a qualified group of people who would be your target audience (that could be beginners or another group you have in mind), you would help people by giving them advice on an aspect, walk them through your journey and then promote products however relevant
Hi All,my question is regarding my domain. I came to WA already owning my domain name and I am enjoying the classes. What I want to know is if I build the website here is it possible to transfer it to the domain name I own and are there any restrictions in regards to moving it in this manner.
jghwebbrand Premium
You most certainly can MOVE your free http://siterubix.com website to the domain name you already own. This is taught in Level 2 lesson 7.

You can even point your purchased domain name to WA servers so WA servers is your website hosting service.

To do all of the above it is necessary to become a paid premium member. As of today Paid premium membership includes the hosting of 10 websites.

WA is a platform that offers so much training, tools and 24 x 7 support to grow and online business.

Do enjoy your free training and a test drive of the WA platform as you start as a free member.
TheAbie Premium Plus
You can indeed, however hosting is included with a premium subscription to the platform.

This video and instructions are very helpful, but in building my first website, I want to promote WA as a niche, but I want to start with Home & Office Electronics. I have an existing account on my FB page that promotes products from electronics companies in the Philippines. Can I hear some advice before I start to build my website? Thank you
TheAbie Premium Plus
If you are new to affiliate marketing, we always recommend starting out with your own niche vs the Affiliate Bootcamp (make money online niche) can be harder and more competitive. Plus if you are looking to earn sooner, your own interest niche is also better.

You may review below resource However, if you want to head to the Affiliate Bootcamp, the make money online niche you'd want to choose a target audience, folks who resonate best with you and you can build rapport and connect with through the creation of your content. Examples

Senior folks who are looking to make an extra income.
Students who want to fund their education.

ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche. And the recommendation is to focus on ONE site starting out as it takes lots of effort and work get it going, however once you know what you are doing, then the learning curve would be less steeper to scale up.
Rtungol Premium
Appreciate your advice. Thank you very much.
EricCantu Premium Plus
What you have there are two separate niche ideas. One niche promoting WA to people looking to make money online, and the other niche aimed at people interested in home office products and electronics.

You can absolutely go in either direction, but they both wouldn’t go together in a single niche website.

If you choose to go with home electronics, continue with the OEC training. If you choose to promote WA in the make money online niche, go with the Affiliate Bootcamp training. :)
Rtungol Premium
I decided to go with home electronics, and you're right that I need to continue with the OEC training because I don't know exactly what's the next move after I built my website. Thank you for your assistance.
EricCantu Premium Plus
No prob:)
jghwebbrand Premium
Looks like you have chosen to go with home electronics. Looks like you have a FB account too. Great! When you first start you website focus on helping people with content - information. answers to questions they have about home electronics, problems that exist and solutions. Help before focusing you selling products.. Grow traffic to your website first. The training will teach you all of that and more so follow it step by step for best results.
