Target Audiences for Wealthy Affiliate

When you sit down and think about all the people in the world that would like to make more money, you could pretty much include just about everyone.

Every person from every little corner of the population could use extra cash and that is really the target audience. So in essence, your target audience consists of the close to 7 BILLION people that live this world, 3.4 of them have high speed internet and would love to have access to a platform like Wealthy Affiliate.

That is a pretty MASSIVE target audience, so within this tutorial I am going to give you a hand with some more targeted examples of audiences and show you exactly how to break them down.

Pretty big and pretty broad right? That was intended to prove the scale of the market that you can promote to, and within this section we are going to explain smaller more niche target audiences and also let you in on some ways in which you can research and market to these audiences.

When many affiliates begin to work on their keyword and industry research for Wealthy Affiliate research, they typically think of the most obvious marketers that are highly relevant to the services offered at Wealthy Affiliate. The main audiences that come to mind are:

  • Making Money
  • Work From Home
  • Internet Marketing
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • PPC Marketing
  • Email Marketing

These are fine and they are definitely targeted, however marketers typically run into a wall when they attempt to promote WA under these keywords as they are very competitive. They convert, but they are competitive.

Because of this, we recommend also venturing into other very targeted niches. I have included a list of these below:

  • Entrepreneur Programs
  • Website Marketing
  • Local Marketing
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Twitter marketing
  • Facebook Marketing
  • Linked In marketing
  • Email Marketing
  • Google Adwords
  • Google content network
  • BingAds
  • PPC Marketing
  • Clickbank
  • Data Entry
  • Home Business
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Article Marketing
  • Getting Rich Quick
  • Become a Millionaire
  • Search Engine Marketing
  • Self-Employment
  • Affiliate Programs
  • Affiliate Networks
  • Wordpress Plugins/Theme/Hosting
  • Website Hosting
  • Website Builders
  • Internet Marketing Tools

These are all hot topics and highly related to what is offered within Wealthy Affiliate. Anyone looking for help in any of these areas can easily get help and get training within the Wealthy Affiliate community if you look a little deeper you find that there are even more than the obvious.

These can all be target audiences and I am going to show you how to elaborate on these in a second. However, there are complete demographics of people that should not be forgotten about. Massive groups of people that are looking for opportunities, to create businesses online or to expand their existing businesses online.

  • College Students
  • University Students
  • Retired Individuals
  • Middle Class Populous (large majority of US consumers)
  • Retired Veterans / Disabled Veterans
  • Disabled Individuals (who can work from their computer)
  • New Career seekers
  • Career Development/Advancement seekers
  • Laid Off Employees
  • Unemployment Benefits
  • People with massive hospital/health bills
  • Low Salary Employees
  • High Salary Employees that Want More
  • Minimum Wage Workers / McJobs
  • Passive Income Seekers
  • Residual Income Seekers
  • Baby Boomers About to Retire
  • People Who Vacation Lots (like the freedom)
  • Loans/Cash Advances
  • People with a mortgage
  • People that are forced to foreclose their homes
  • Debt Consolidation
  • People with Undesirable Jobs
  • Office Workers
  • People looking to win the lottery
  • Computer Jobs and remote jobs
  • People interesting in computer programming
  • Residents at business and Internet marketing schools
  • People looking to get a marketing, finance, or business education
  • Someone who wants to quit their job
  • Franchising/Franchisees
  • Ebay Sellers
  • Summer Job Seekers
  • Part-Time Employment
  • People seeking any type of employment!
  • Employment Search Engines (JobSearch, Monster, Careers.com)
  • Criminal Employment (employment for criminals)
  • People seeking post secondary education (can target University and College names)
  • Real Estate Investors
  • Online Surveys Takers
  • Related Forums and discussion rooms
  • TV Shows (Apprentice, Deal or No Deal, etc)
  • Famous Rich People (Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Rich Dad Poor Dad)
  • Hard Copy Books (The Art of the Deal, Buzz marketing, etc)
  • Affiliate Network Keywords (CJ, Clickbank, Linkshare, Shareasale, Kowabunga, etc)

These are some demographic based audiences that you can target. These above ideas alone will give you enough ammunition to promote Wealthy Affiliate for a lifetime!

With what we have already given you, you could easily scale a campaign to make over $1 MILLION per year...in fact, if you put your effort into just one of these target audiences, you could likely make that with just one.

Remember, the average affiliate referral for Wealthy Affiliate is close to $150. Commissions and recurring revenue add up very quickly!

In the next section, we are going to elaborate on a few of these so you can get a better idea of how to research and find keywords within them, and and how to effectively set up campaigns targeting them.

I cannot find any low hanging fruit when I try travel keywords. I've mixed it up to include specific destinations, cruises, beaches, route 66 ect. I've used wanderlust, travel so on and I keep coming upi with great Avg and QSRs but NO low hanging fruit. I keep getting stuff like this

I am not familiar with the travel industry. All though I have heard this same problem from others, trying to represent the travel industry, my only thought would be to pick one vacation spot and see if that helps. Erin has written about beach vacations. Maybe she would have some ideas. If I were to look up up a given vacation spot, I would want to know about the best restaurants, tourist spots to explore, the best hotel for your money, etc. I hope this helps

Basically, keywords are what surfers will search for to find your web site. Keywords are incorporated into the content on your website, making it more likely to be found.

Keywords are used for targeting an audience, and demographic can be a wide range of things from age, location, gender ect. You can use tools like google trends to test keywords or search phrases. Hope this helps a bit.

Hi Robert,

This is how you use keywords:

You find keywords with BOTH of this combination:

AVG > 100
QSR < 50

For me, those are the ideal criteria to look for in any keywords.

So to get that kind of keyword, yes, it's usually a phrase.

You will find as many keywords as you can.

Each post you write will be tackling only ONE of these keywords on your list.

sample "how to train a dog to sit"

Then you will incorporate that phrase in your title, first paragraph, and then once again near the end of your post.

Title: "3 Easy Steps: How To Train A Dog To Sit" - Always add to the title to make it enticing and reason why people should click on YOUR post on their results page.

First paragraph (within first 160 characters):
"When first getting a new puppy, you will want to learn how to train a dog to sit when he or she is 2 - 4 months old.

I have 3 easy steps below that I'm going to go through with you so you can teach your new puppy...."

Body: anything you want.

Last section of post somewhere:

"If you have learned how to train your dog to sit, then please comment below and let me know of your results!" - or something else, anything that will bring that keyword back into your article.

When researching keywords you need to beware of Stop Words like "what is" "how to" and words like "in" "a" "on".

Those words don't really count and if you see another keyword with same AVG but higher QSR and without those stop words, then that keyword is the true QSR.

For example "what is commission junction" and "commission junction" are the similar AVG but the true keyword is "commission junction" which will have a much higher QSR than "what is commission junction".

Sometimes you may also need to be more creative in your keywords if the product name you're promoting does not have any good keywords, you could work around that and think of why a person would need this product.

So instead of using product name keywords, you could also look at keywords like "how to cure...." or "natural remedy for..." whatever your product can do/improve for people, and so that's more keywords you could use.

You have to put yourself into the mindset of the person doing that search and figure out what a person that needs the information you're offering would search for.

Demographics is the people you are talking to in your niche. So some keywords can incorporate that as well like "best cameras for kids".

I hope this helps!

When it's based on PPC, it's more about how much money people are bidding on those keywords, so that's what the competitiveness mean on Google Adwords' keyword planner.

Jaaxy's QSR (competition) measures how many websites use that particular in their content.

Hope this helps,

Hi Donna..... the mind blows with the opportunity you have here with your niche.
You could tackle it from - how to make your home work efficiently for you - Ie cleaning, decluttering, routines etc
this would then give the mum time and energy to spend on her on line business.
You could tackle it from - Activities and education an at home mum can do with their young children and link to educational toys and products
You could tackle it from - The mum using a hobby ie handcrafts, art, etc and how to market this through various channels.

These are just thoughts I had. Good luck with choosing your niche.

Awesome content and ideas, thanks a lot, Kyle!

I'd like to add a thought that came up when looking through the list on page/lesson 1:
If you've ever worked in a corporate environment/company for more than one week, you came across some very unsatisfied coworkers.

Maybe some didn't show it that much to their outer world to not be laid off immediately, but I bet you can think of a couple of people who are highly unsatisfied with their current (work-life) situation.

I think that's a perfect target group, unhappy ex-colleagues that you probably can highly relate to, which in essence is "knowing your (potential) customer".

Have a great one and stay awesome! :)

Wow, the list is powerful. I now realize I should have taken this training first. Although, I feel my present website is great... The theme is not in sync with most of my content. From reading this lesson, I think I might have to build another site. Lesson learned...1) Slice the excitement, buckle down and thoroughly read and don't move to the next step, without a thorough understanding of the present content. 2) Choose the right training, if unsure, no doubt, the boot camp training, should be first. 3) Come to each lesson, ready to participate, learn and apply the knowledge. Kyle, I'm feeling like a jerk for not doing this "boot camp" first... That explains my procrastination to go 100 plus.

So, here's my question... Since my present website is a couple years old, would it be best to change the theme/name or just start all over building another niche site, as I bounce through my boot camp training geared to help me slay this beast, lol ?

Hold up. So to summarize... When I'm writing articles for my site, I use the keywords I found on the Google search, right? And I should try to go for the ones that have less than 300 or 400 sites results attributed to them, but get over 50 searches a day? And I can find how many searches they get using the keyword tool which is I-don't-know-where-can-I-get-help-with-that.

Could you provide a little more detail on what QSR on Jaaxy really means. For example, many search terms look like they have nearly the same number of searches vs traffic...but very different QSR results. The QSR on three keyword searches might yield 64, 97, and 162.

What does the QSR number tell us? Is it 100 and lower? Or just right at 100? Is there a range of QSR scores that will be acceptable?

Thanks!
Reply
CravenATAT Premium
QSR is quoted search results. This refers to the amount of websites out there using that keyword. Lower number there means less competition.

SEO is your search engine optimization. That is the number near 100. The higher it is, the better chance you have and google recognizing it.

Seo should be at or near 100 while QSR should be low so less competition. I was typing fast earlier and may have mistyped.

Thanks for the response!!! I completely get the demand vs supply idea...but I am still a little unsure on SEO as it relates to the current version of Jaaxy.

Jaaxy lists Searches...Traffic...Competition (OSR)...Article Power...PPC Power...and then Dig.

Where do we find the SEO score within Jaaxy?

Can you shed some light on Article Power and PPC Power as it relates to Jaaxy?

Is there a training video on Jaaxy that goes into more detail?

Hey Gloria, although I'm a newbie myself to this group, I believe that your domain name is not as important as the content in and on your page. Whether it is a post, a blog or a website you want to target those keywords in your niche. Your domain name is really one of the least important aspects of reaching your audience. Of course it helps to have a nice short and memorable domain name for sure, it is not as important as content. Hope this helps.

You want to make sure the QSR is under 100. The left columns give you the number of searches so the higher there the better. On the right will be the .com .net .org availability. I would check your keywords for qsr to see which is better, and of course google those words and see who you are up against on each.

Need advice (based on the tutorial).
I'm a vet and am targeting vets. Typing "how veterans" in Google search yields among its popular results: "how veterans can start a business."
Inserting that into WA Keyword Search yields "Searches: 56," "Traffic: 10," and "QSR / competition: 4."
Google believes that this is a popular search; WA KW search doesn't seem to think so. Am I misinterpreting the data? Google seems to be pointing me in the direction of exploiting (in a nice way) this market.

Nope. The numbers were the first result I got when I plugged "how veterans can start a business" (from Google search) into the WA keyword search (/kw_research). I don't know if the numbers I got were too low, though Google says that was a popular search in their search engine. Looks like the competition isn't very much.
Reply

Jaaxy's result is accurate. Google search does not show you the actual keyword searches and competition for the exact same keyword.

How do you know "Google says" it was a popular search?
Reply
KevinH427 Premium
Because when I used the main Google search screen, and typed in "how veterans," the fuller keyword ("how veterans can start a business") instantly popped up as one of the options for completing the search entry. Kyle says in the lesson says that this feature, "called Google instant," was launched by Google in 2010.

I just got confused (not hard for me). The Target Audiences Tutorial says, "Let's take a quick look at some potential searches that people may type in using the Wealthy Affiliate Keyword Tool (free to use). I typed in 'minimum wage' in the Google keyword tool and here is what we got."
It seems to abruptly switch gears from talking about the WA KW tool to the Google KW tool. Are they the same thing. Is this related to Google Adwords and their keywords?
Thanks.

The google keyword tool is different from the Wealthy affiliate keyword tool.

The google keyword tool is an extension of google Adwords while the wealthy affiliate keyword tool is also known as Jaaxy.

The basic level of Jaaxyis free for wealthy affiliate members.

As I try to understand this I have a question.

Lets say I choose to build a site. E.g. I choose to write a post about unemployed college dropouts.

Is it in my best interest to continue writing many articles related to this initial target audience 'unemployed college dropouts.' Trying to find different low competition keywords that relate and build a business like that

Or is it just as good to write 1 or a few articles about unemployed college dropouts. And then move on to, lets say 'work opportunities for the retired'. So on, and so forth?

As I gather building a niche site is to be specific to the topic and condense as much info out of it as possible.

Any true wisdom offered will be appreciated!!!
Reply
RCoppersmit1 Premium
It depends on what your objective is with your blog, either is right. Is it to help college dropouts or anyone that is unemployed? You might write about college dropouts, the challenges they face trying to find decent employment, how they can make money, inspire them to go back to school, teach them about starting a business or teach them about affiliate marketing. One Tab for college drop outs with sub tabs, one tab for the retired with sub tabs,if it is about the unemployed; or you could make them two different niches with posts focusing on the target audience (college dropouts, retirees, stay at home mother's etc.).
Hope this helps, Best Wishes

I think, once again, I am torn as to which direction to take:
I'm on a limited income so it would be good to target those folk who are on similar incomes and would like to make more money... but they may not have enough to spare to work with WA...
I'm thinking of people on disability who can still work, as not all disabilities are visible...
And I'm thinking of those folk who, again like myself, have found it difficult to find "normal" paid employment and might enjoy working online from home...
Thoughts? Suggestions? :)

I know what you mean Mark, I think. I too am disabled and on a good day, I seem normal even though I am feeling some signs of my disability. But then,
.on a not so good day, some signs of my disability show like crazy. This makes it difficult to function in a "normal" environment even more because I never know what kind of a day I will have.
For me, my purpose for generating a second income is because I can't make ends meet on what I receive from SSDI. But ultimately, I want to leave a legacy and I hope to accomplish that from what I am learning here. I think being disabled and reaching out to others who are disabled is a pretty slim topic. I would need to expand my topic.
So, David4618, don't you think anyone who wants to do this will find the funds? There are many things they can do. Sell something on Craigslist or borrow from a close friend who supports what they are doing. I just let my need be known through conversation and "BOOM" help came from 3 directions. My daughter mailed me some money, my partner gave it to me, my neighbor who owed me money , paid me back. Of course, as soon as they get a couple of referrals, they can pay their monthly amount easily.
There is a site with Amazon where you can earn money doing odd jobs online. It's incredible. If you want anymore info. on this subject, I can direct you to it. PM me if intrrested.
I hope I have helped someone here and didn't just blab on and on.

Wishing you all the best,

what I understand that Jaaxy is not enough for keyword search and can be overestimated! Oh God..Is it correct?

AlexEvans Premium
Hi Safia,
I am just in between meetings so will try to give it a good shot.

Just from reading your comment it appears that you are putting the horse before the cart. Using PPC or Google add words to promote is further along in the training, so plenty of things to work through before tackling that and as per the training it is probably better to start with Bing adds not as expensive as Google add words, a good way to learn and not so expensive if you make mistakes along the way.

If we go to the training, We are trying to establish our direction, or who are we going to reach out to.

The direction I am going to be choosing for my business is:

...........................................................................................

and the second thing

The name of my brand:


.....................................................................................................

Initially, we need to work out who we are targetting and then secondly how are we going to create content that will reach out to that audience.

The basics of it are that we want to create content that is related to what people are searching for in Google.

The amount of content that is posted online on an hourly basis is mind-boggling, it is unbelievable.

The key is to create content that is focused and relevant to the audience that we have decided to target.

So if we look at the training Kyle has started with a broad search term.

If at that stage you write an article and someone from an authority site writes an article...................both are indexed

The question is will you be on the same page in the search results for that search term, the answer is no you will not even be in the same stadium.

So how you leverage the keyword research is that you drill down so if we look at the example, Kyle has drilled down and down and down, so it ends up with search terms that are more targetted and as we do that the search terms have less competition, not so many folks writing about that topic, at the same people are searching for those search terms, so the chances that when Safia writes an article, folks will click on it and read and possibly click through to your offer and the chances are that you will end up on page one for that particular search term so once again more chances for folks to see your content.

Hope that makes sense

Good job.and the more content that we produce and get indexed and ranked more and more folks turn up to your show.

It is a whole process and one that does not happen overnight, much better to follow the training and cross the bridges as you get to them

Best wishes.

Hi Safia,
Try not to overthink things, it causes us more problems than it solves, only speaking from experience.

Jaaxy is an amazing resource, personally, it has been of huge benefit, can't say enough about it.

Like all tools and resources, they are only as good as our skill set to use it and the only way to do that is to use it, get our heads around it, you have to play around with it........... to get the results we need to work it.

The thing about it is that it is just not one thing we are building a huge jigsaw puzzle and each little bit adds to the picture.

Just follow the training we don't have to reinvent it.

Best wishes.

Okay I agree that this could be a very good target audience, but would this audience really be searching for these terms? I think if I was one from this audience I would be more likely to be searching for something like, "how to increase my income" It would be interesting to see some demographics of these searchers.

so that i one of the target keywords to use - show them how adding a 'passive income' stream to their portfolio will gove them more income.
but getting to konw the audience is one of the most important things you can do - you then think like them and know what they are after.
good luck

I need help, I m still undecided and confused about the niche.At first my idea was open a website around something that I know good for example niches in the real estate field or music, but actually today i don t know how I could monetize those topics through the affiliate marketing, so I explored the BOOTCAMP here to understand if I should start promoting Wealthy affiliate due to the fact that there is already a path to follow, but when I came on the "about me" step I stuck again because I don t have any experience and result that prove that I m expert on this field,so, ok for the target ok for the niche but how could I start a topic on something that I m not expert with?

feigner Premium
i know how you feel - a couple of years ago i was in the same boat - i have a lot of interests but couldn't decide on one so went for the bootcamp - thre months later i was looking back at the certification course and starting again.
seriously if you are not really passionate about the make money online business and can either buy the products or just cobble together reiviews from others on the net then go for something less competative.
even something like bathroom fans! - they are cheaper than mmo products and there are a lot of them.
it can be something you are looking to improve on the house or have just bought. others will want the same thing so why not create a site about that?
note that your first one may not be your best one - or it may be a red hot hit.
take a little bit longer and use the search bar above to look for more info on how to look for your niche - boomergp08 has a good training as has loes.
good luck

I'm not a creative person maybe.. But..
I think we need to be a bit more realistic. WA is not for everyone. There are some basic skills that a person must possess to start any online business with WA.
Ability to express oneself in writing (better in English), ability to learn some tech skills, willingness to put in a lot of time and effort before seeing any money.
I wouldn't target people who want to win a lottery or find any other get rich quick method. It will take too much effort trying to change this mental setting. Look at the "Work from home" type of groups on FB. The only posts that get attention and a gazillion "How?" comments are those with videos of people counting $100 bills.
Cash is the king there.
Well, it's getting too long. I'll have to make a blog out of it..

I share your opinion Maria - WA is not for everyone.
It's not for people who are not willing to learn and not patient.
The skill how to build an online business is something everybody has to learn - and all are provided here in WA. If one is willing to learn and persevere, she will break the code of how to 'anything' about the business - writing, expressing ideas, promoting and so on.

Just my opinion.

Look, my former nanny desperately needs work, as she has her own baby now. She is creative - can create diaper cakes, knit blankets etc.
But her English is very weak, no grammar whatsoever. She'll need years to fix it. Or hire writers.
But she is on food stamps and really has no money.
I would be happy to help her, but I feel it's just too over her head.
Need to find some other type of working from home for her.

Hi Mary,
I agree with you 100%; WA is not for everyone! People still have to be teachable and have a certain level of basic skills. Recently, I have seen some poorly written profiles and I wonder how are those people going to be able to write. Content is the backbone of the online business. It's hard enough to be successful without the added lack of the basic skills.
Reply
newmarketpro Premium
There are 3 things that I can suggest you can explore.

1) She is good with creating products. Can she join-venture with someone who can write about her product and promote it online?

2) Get someone who is already have a site in her niche and have one category to promote here product. This can be done on an agreed proportion profit rate

3) Can she write in other language? If she can, help her to build a multi-language site which can be translated into English.

Just my opinion.

:)

Hi Kyle
Having a target like "everybody with computer and internet" is really so wide and rich to think of possible WA clients. Why do we have to brand and segregate them when quest for "money/income" is also all embracing? If we do branding, we limit our scope to a limited group and drive away potential clients that we could reach or come in contact with? Can we just be open when it comes to "Target Audience"?

It’s easier to position yourself as an authority site within a smaller niche Majorie, your articles can be tailored and more specific so you can really help people, plus you have less competition from other websites.

OK, I've got a question here.

I have found a keyword that I really like It has 500+ AVG and 0 QSR, I think it will convert really well and even .com is available.

Now the question is should I buy that domain or should I create several content posts around it? or both? I assume it is both, just the thing is it is quite long(29 characters) and I don't think its that brandable.

Besides the length, my concern is will the domain name help with the ranking in the google for that specific keyword and will I get that traffic if I don't have that keyword that many times in the posts?

Thank you for the help in advance! :)
Reply
katkatskitchen Premium
Alex,
you have to remember that a domain name should be memorable.Your suggestion is too long to be memorable. The shorter the domain name the better it will rank and also having your keyword in the title no longer has the impact it used to have. Providing you don't use the domain name WWW.hangingplants.com and then try and sell dog food from that site you should be okay. What I mean there is you can tailor a domain to your needs but it should contain Keyword phrases from another niche
Reply
AlexSomm Premium
I have read in a couple of different places that it has an impact, then I have read in some other that it doesn't I guess that changed during some time so that is why there are different pieces of information out there.

The keyword is the niche Its similar to Kyle's "Howtolosebellyfat" from the training and I saw that a lot of his websites have long domain names, that is why I asked.

Thank you Kat. :)

It has all changed.
Once upon a time having the keyword was like "magic" and then it lead to "domain squatting" and other problems. I mean there can only ever be one "www.chocolate.com" or "www.lawyer.com" right? There are over 1 billion websites on the internet so the Search Engines have all changed their algorithms to minimise this problem now.
My advice is simply to pick the name you like and then write lots of post targeting your niche / targeting your audiences specific problems. Very, very, very few people take the time to read domain names anyway. Working links in the right spot are more important that the actual letters that make up your domain name.
Good luck with it.

If have heard Kyle mention many times the "audience" or people online is three billion people. Recognizing that billions of them do not speak English how would I reach them? Yes, I know that still leaves a lot of English speakers but is our audience really every person in the world? If so, how?

I'm not sure Kyle was speaking to you specifically when he said that. I believe he was talking to WA members collectively.

Lots of the WA members speak English as their second language so they can of course target speakers of their native tongue.

Thanks for the reply. I did not think he was speaking to me specifically but my question still stands. My girlfriend speaks fluent Chinese but could I really build a website here on WA for people in China? And if I could I wonder what obstacles I would run into.

I'm sure that many of Steve Jobs' ideas could have been called, 'pie in the sky' but he changed the face of mobile telephony. :)

I regularly speak to a friend in Beijing and I think that yes, there's no reason you couldn't build a website here on WA for people in China (as long as it's not blocked by the state firewall).

People in China share the same hopes and dreams that we do and I'm sure that if you picked the right niche, it could be a success.

JerryHuang Premium
We're definitely not targeting every person in the world. Your website should have a target audience, be it in English, Chinese or any other language.

You just need to recognize the group of people you want to target, then work towards offering value to them and them eventually monetize it.

If you need more clarification on your niche, you can check out Kyle's post here: Also, as you mentioned you may want to build websites in other languages apart from English, I've created a training here for that:

Your target audience for selling WA is NOT everyone on-line.
Please remember that many of the common features / benefits that you enjoy as a WA member are only possible because you can both speak AND write in English.

Jaaxy struggles with non-English based queries.
All the training / Jay's video's and almost all of the community posts / replies are also English based.
Chinese people who do are not literate in English will not / cannot get $49 per month of value from WA as a result.

Ok got through the first 4 lessons of Bootcamp but should I have even come here yet? I still haven't completed the getting started section of WA yet but took this since I was sent this way from that course because I didn't have a niche. I thought this would be a great option but they are into keywords etc and guess I need to get a website name first? Guess I took a detour..

hi scott - welcome to wa - i took this route when i first started and my mentor said not to - i used three months and found that i did not want to pursue it - learned a lot in a short period of time - so think carefully before going down thiss route.
are you sure you cannot find a niche - what do you do at the moment? can you help others who have not learnt how to do it?
what would you like to do? can you learn this skill and pass this onto others who want to learn?
good luck if you persue it

if it is available then yes - you could use namemesh to findout whether you like other names like nameaffiliatedotcom or similar
the niche is the group of people you are serving - be clear and specific on this as you wil lbe targeting them
so people 40-50 looking to get out of a job and take early retirement - they need to find another way - affiliate marketing is the way to get more time with the grandchildren and help them through college etc
so what information do they need, what are the problems they face, what keeps them up at night or wakes them up.
look for topics and then search for keywords to write articles about
more money for retirement ( topic) 5 ways to make more money for retirement ( article title) ( keyword make money for retirement) then write about 1k words about this topic - research 4 other ways and add in affiliate marketing as one linking to your wa review

So while I understand how this works can anybody help me with how to make the most of only being able to put in 10-15 min at the beginning and ending of my day I knew it was gonna be tough but I didn't expect for the first person I asked to just assume that since I wasn't home or near a WiFi connection that I don't have a laptop when I do have a laptop and it is how I access this website most of the time since I found this web community. And since they assumed that and told me there was no way I could do this because I didn't have a laptop or desktop to work with it really made me wonder if this place is worth my time. I asked my question the only way I had available at that time so since the first person I asked wanted to show bias of device and means used to ask for help I ask the community. Any tips or tricks that y'all can think of to help me with remembering the information I took in when starting my day for when I can come back and do more at the end of my day would be very helpful. Please and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

To be successful with your online business you will need to put forth some time and effort. There is a lot of hard work, especially in the beginning. However, you work at your own pace. The less time you put in the longer it will take you to reach your goals. But, this is not a race.

I would suggest you try to get in about 10 hours a week at least, but if you can't, do what you can. Maybe you have more time on the weekend.

Not quite understanding what you are saying about the laptop, but I think you are saying you do have a laptop. If that understanding is correct, you work on it when you can. If you don't have a laptop/desktop you can always do something different. There is someone here that actually goes to the library to use their computers.

Sounds like you didn't get a good first-time impression of WA. Let me assure you that the community here is very helpful to other members. I apologize if you felt something different from that. I have been here for three years and have felt nothing but encouragement and have received a lot of help from other members.

I hope that you will continue here at WA because I can honestly say that you can't get what WA offers from any place else. Sometimes people can't always express what they are actually trying to say in writing and sometimes it doesn't come out like we intend it to.

I would suggest that you concentrate on getting through the training. First the Certification Course and then The Affiliate BootCamp. Do the training step-by-step and don't skip around.

By the time you finish the course, you will have created your website and built out the content for it. The training is designed to get you where you need to be.

There are some great helpful members here and all you have to do is ask questions about anything you don't understand or need clarification on. We will be here for you.

Best wishes to you.

Hi,
Think that I understand the question. When you study first thing in a morning, make some notes to jog your memory when you return at night. If it is going to take time, so be it. Though I am looking at boot camp as I can see myself eventually having a website devoted to WA, in addition to my other sites, I am only on lesson three in the certification site. Have been struggling with it, but i will get there. As i am sure that you will. We are all here to help.

very useful content. As i read through the discussions I uncover that if I don't have much experience on "making money online" it may be quite a task to produce regular content on the subject, thereby rendering it difficult to promote WA. That got me a bit confused for a moment but then, I thought...even if I were to write about something I am more familiar with and passionate about, like fitness and exercise, I would still need to do research so that I produce QUALITY content!

So, why not set a challenge and enter into the deep end but strive not to drown? get out of my comfort zone and get things done?

just my opinion...what do you think?

Hi everyone,
Just started my journey at WA, right now getting trained at Affiliate Bootcamp, now while finding out the target audience and keywords, there are some keywords which have very few searches ie.<50 but google shows millions of results for them in a google search.

How can I find a keyword with very few google search results ??

You don't actually use Google for keyword research, you use Jaaxy. The results of a general Google search are not very accurate. Please use the tool provided for you to find the right keywords.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Don't pay too much attention to google searches.
These results are based on a general keyword and related keywords that are used by countless people to find what they want.

Your ideal keyword would be one with over a 100 searches per month but under 50 for the QSR.
It may not have many searches but it will be easy to rank with.

You and your site are in this for the long term so the more articles you publish with different keywords the more your site and articles will appear in the search results.
Have a great Sunday.

What does "pay per click promotions" mean? Are we supposed to be active on Facebook? I do have an account, but I haven't been on it in a couple of years.

Hey Lisa,

The definition you requested is in the 1st screen print below.

You don't HAVE to be active on Facebook. However it can be another source of quality traffic to your website. It is best to create a Facebook PAGE so that you won't have to use your personal FB page thus you won't pester your FB friends.

When you are ready to take that step, there are loads of great tutorials offered on Facebook Fan pages right on WA. See the 2nd screen print below to see how you can access them.

Hope this helps you.

I've already wasted 2 of my searches trying to maneuver my way around that page. If I VIEW RESULTS will I lose another search? What is QSR, KQI and SEO? Also, how do you know if a Keyword has low competition?

Hi Lsessions,

I am just writing a review of this lesson.

Basically all you need to do before you go on are 2 things.
I) Ask yourself, "Who would I like to tell about WA?"
2) What name will encompass the idea of WA and the people I want to share it with?

Look at the group Kyle Choose and look at the Name he choose.
Keep it simple you will get it as you go along.

The problem I have always had with getting keywords is not actually getting the keywords. It is actually developing content around those keywords so that the content is original. All my posts eventually sound like a big parrot or a broken record, just repeating the same thing over and over. That seems to be my big problem with keyword work. Does anyone have any suggestions on getting past this phenomenon?
Reply
siamjerry Premium
I am not sure I understand the problem, but do you think that you need to use the keyword in all paragraphs? This is certainly not the case. You should use it in the header and withing the first 100 words or first paragraph. Then you use it sparingly. What I do is have the key topic, make 6 different paragraphs (relevant to topic) and start writing. I hope this helps.
Reply
SeanmMonahan Premium
No. The issue is that all the posts that I wrote back then sounded similar to one another. The seemed to be no differentiation from post to post on the website. I understand that all the posts are designed to "funnel down" to the promotion of WA, but the content over the whole site seemed very homogeneous rather than like separate concepts that lead to one point. Does that make sense?
Reply
siamjerry Premium
Then choose keywords that are not so close to each other. In my site howtobeatyourboss.com I have post like: 'my boss is a jerk' and 'why HR is not helping' and 'passed over for promotion unfairly'. All of them eventually have a CTA to review WA.
Reply
feigner Premium
you don't need to make all of your post tunnel down to promote wa- you can pick pu a few other affiliate programs- jaaxy or other keyword tools - ahrefs or similar.
so you are starting to move away from just one affiliate program.
dependant on how you are promoting wa, does depend on how your site will sound.
if you are posting about wordpress there is lots of differeent areas to create articles about.
if you are talking about mmo then again there are lots of areas.
what you need to do is to go back and write down the different areas within the main topic and then create 15 titles of articles and see if they match what direction you are going in.
good luck Sean

Utilise social hangouts relevant to target audience.


And also this.... leverage the keywords to promote WA.

No3..through google adwords, bingads com (pay per click promotion) ...those it mean that one can get paid once they click the promotion or what and how do they pay.
Reply
kathytee787 Premium
Hi,
utilising social hangouts relevant to target audiences means you go where ever your target audience are. For example, lets say your target audience are retirees then you would find social media sites, community programs, instragram pages fb pages and any websites catering to retirees etc etc. That is where you want to promote yourself to get the best responses. It will be covered more later but for example, if you advertise with fb you will use specific parameters (ie age 65 - 85) to help narrow in on your specific group.

Leveraging the keywords to promote WA is simply using the key word(s) over and over in your articles, blogs, advertisement etc to drive referrals back to WA. You want to make sure that when someone googles those words (as in the eg) your business eventually becomes one of the top sites that pops up--your goal is to be on pg 1 not pg 1798.

Pay per click is just that every time someone click on your advertisement you will get paid. I believe the amount and how to set it up will be covered a little later in the boot camp.

Hope this helps. :)

This stuff is confusing to me too but I have figured that if any of these folks can do it, I can do it too... I just need a tad more time for the information to mature in my brain.

My goal is to establish a solid passive 6-figure income...
Does it matter how long it will take me to get there?
So, what if it takes me 5 years... would it be worth it?
You betcha it is worth it - and then some!

Meantime... and until it clicks, I will just keep on reading, watching videos, asking questions, getting involved in the community... you know, immersing myself in the culture.

Again, I figure that the same way I learned English, I can learn this foreign language as well... I just need to give it whatever time it takes to make sense... my English is not too bad anymore

Thanks Kyle , Great Tutorial.
Something I was thinking about is that people do not only like low wage unskilled jobs. I have noticed that people tend toward easy things minimal efforts , easy money. I do not know, but by their nature they do not like to work hard. They are lazy. I believe making the things easy for them is a key in here.

I am still not clear on how to target the above list. Im trying to figure out how to take one of the examples and break it down with keywords pertaining to it and write an article about it. I wish someone who know could make a more extensive training on it.
Like for instance, tv shows. Not sure how I would target it. Or clickbank. Or people with undesirable jobs. Or looking to win the lottery.
My website is all about making money from home. I have gone over this training many times trying to get it. I need some more elaboration examples.

So you are already making money from home, right?

If that's your niche target audience then all you have to do is break it down further.

Who are you wanting to show how to make money from home, is it stay at home moms that are in their 30's, is it retired military moms in their 50's, single dads in their 40's?

You can't just say you want to show everyone how to make money from home. That's when you'll be told it is too broad of a niche.

If you are making money from home, how did you start making money from home yourself?

Where did you get your information from that got you started and what can you do better to make other's like yourself start making money at home?

You have to look at what you're doing already and do what you're familiar with. There is nothing wrong with learning how to make money from home as you do it, but if you're not making money from home how are you going to help others make it?

There are people who are already making money at home and if they want to help others make money then they would have to do research on what group of people they're more comfortable in working with.

If it's a male dad making money from home he would focus on single dads; if it's a female teacher, then her audience would be young educators looking to make extra money from home, or if it's a retired military male or female in their 40's 50's 60's already making money they would focus on military people in their age because that is something they are familiar with.

Go through the video over and over till you get what Kyle is getting across. You'll get it soon no doubt.

Hope that helps,

Rick

Hey Reta,

You're welcome! I know that finding a niche can be confusing. WA has a comprehensive lesson on this and it doesn't have to stop there.

There are other sites that explain what a niche is that can give you ideas on how to pick a niche that is fit for you.

Here's one for example - http://www.falkenstein.com/

This lady gives some tips on what to look for in a niche. There are many other sites on niches to help you just Google them and learn as much as you can until you understand then come back to WA with a different view on how to look for that niche that you can become an authority of.

You can do it Reta, you already have the desire and passion for it. Just do it, girl!

Wishing you the best and hope you find that niche

Rick

So if I were to build a site around a Click Bank product/s, would I choose an audience first and then pick up a product or products to review and promote?

If anyone has any advice on how to go about promoting CB products via Bootcamp training, I'd be very grateful.

I am torn between starting a stay work at home mom website where I'd promote WA and a CB site... Advice, please? Thanks so much!

Actually combining the two is very easy... most of the products are in the 'making money online' niche, which is also where WA falls. Pick products that are poor comparisons to WA to review and 'promote' - believe it or not, you often sell just as many products from a negative review as you do from a positive one.

Being a newbie, one of the things that I'm blown away with is that all of the sidebar tasks related to getting the job done is somehow condensed into a few steps or click of a few buttons. You don't have to over think things to complete sidebar tasks which allows you to keep moving forward.

This is really great information because this is just the way I want to promote WA; to everyone!

I understand the task behind this I think. I think it is to promote to all this different type of people separately by going to where each of these groups hangs out, so to speak. But, I'm thinking just promoting through social media would catch all these groups of people. Is that right?
Reply

Social media is a wide net, to be sure, but there is still no better way than by writing audience-specific content on a website.

Yes I can see where you're coming from. Here in the UK there are thousands of people on a minimum salary and quite a lot on a stupid scheme where employers put there staff on a no-hours contract, meaning they can phone the staff and tell them they are not needed on any particular day or time. How sad!

Kyle,
You had me at a Million Dollars... just by deliberately focusing on one particular audience... Wow, That's huge!!

This means that building my WA Affiliate business to just 1/10 of that ($100,000 per year)- in 5 years, is so incredibly doable...!

This way of thinking could actually get the fire going under anyone remotely perceiving how big this can get, right?

I keep remembering what you said earlier that every expert... everyone making big money today-including you and Carson, was just a newbie not long ago... Wow, Somebody slap my mama!

Thanks again

Do you recommend targeting one website around one specific group of people (i.e. college students)? I would like to make a website specifically tailored to writers who want to make money through a variety of avenues (self-publishing, traditional publishing, fiction, non-fiction, copywriting, blogging) because I've tried them all. I'm not sure if that's specific enough, though.
Reply
SeanGreentre Premium
Hi Kate,
Yes, one site per niche - otherwise you'll end up in competition with yourself for keywords and keyphrases. Plus your content may get a little diluted across two sites.

That's a great niche, and yes, I'd say it was specific enough.

Good luck.

Sean

J-KWest Premium
I agree with Sean, definitely go with one website, one topic. You may find an opening to expand your niche as your site grows,but in general, the more narrow your niche, the easier it is to become an authority and consistently rank well. Having said that... you don't want to go so narrow that your audience is too small, or you run out of content ideas too quickly... which won't be a problem in the writers niche.

The key to getting traction early on is going after the low hanging fruit as Kyle teaches when doing keyword research. There may not be a ton of traffic with low competition keywords but you can rank much easier and the traffic you get will signal to Google what your website is about. The behaviour of your readers... how long they remain on page for example, and how they interact with your site... (do they click through to your other pages or hit the back button), indicates to Google the quality of your content and its relevancy.

So, when you're doing your keyword research, make sure to also do SERP (search engine results page) research as well to see the competition you're up against. Your SERP research will give you insight into what Google sees as relevant to that search term and your aim is to create better, more engaging content than your competition... which is much easier inside a relatively narrow niche.

As far as the niche you're suggesting, I would start out with only one topic. Self-publishing for example, but base that decision on your keyword research. The "blogging" for bloggers niche is extremely competitive so my personal opinion would be to leave that one alone (but you may uncover something there during your research). Blogging for teenagers and young adults for example might be a way to narrow that topic down.

The WA affiliate bootcamp is probably not the platform for someone searching for vacations, if you already have a niche you would probably get more benefit from the "green" Certification tab to get tips and ideas how to market your blog to reach your ideal audience of those searching for popular or value travel packages etc. The affiliate bootcamp is to market WA as the premier choice for those looking to start an online business, make money online etc.

I reread this for better understanding. It’s insightful. I like how Kyle went in-depth on how to target specifically. As he used “minimum wage workers” as an example, i want to use “someone looking to quit their job” & “people with undesirable jobs” as who I’m targeting for Self Employment. Is it okay to type those exact niches into the keyword tool?

I think if it is related to your niche, you can explore what value these keywords have. You might have the necessity to re-formulate your keywords for the better results.

as what I have understood, using keyword search, I can see what are those niche that has a lot of competition and avoid them.

Basically, I should start a niche that has less competiton but with quite a good number of audience.

Then, use these keywords to make an article out of it.

Is my understanding correct?
Reply
HowardJaros Premium
Yes, that is correct!

Choose a keyword, or keyword phrase, that has an average of over 100 searches per month and a QSR under 100.

That will give you a good chance to rank on page one of the search engines if you follow the training here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Ok well I guess I have a question. In the begining of the course lessons we were told to be very specific about our website. But actually if recycling is in the name of my website I can talk about recycling anything on same site right. Like glass, wood, relationships, food!
Reply
SeanGreentre Premium
Absolutely. Your specific niche is 'recycling', which in my view is quite specific. On the other hand, recycling materials and recycling relationships (to use your example) are very different, are they not? Ultimately, you want to get to a specific niche that you can build your site and brand around. The more specific, the better, otherwise your niche can be too broad and this will affect the traffic to your site and the user experience while they're there. Too broad and your content will be too diluted and your 'bounce rate' (people leaving after seeing just one page) will increase. Being specific with your niche will ensure that your content holds the interest for your specific niche - be that recycling materials, or recycling relations, food, etc.

So to answer your question, you'll be better off narrowing your niche down as you'll benefit from more engaged and, ultimately, converting traffic.

Hope that helps?

Regina, Hi! I might have a couple ideas you can consider. Women in general, especially single moms, live busy lives. At WA you can access everything 24/7. It's all here whenever you need it. I'm fairly new here. I'm not too knowledgeable as far as technology goes. I've often felt over my head here. If it wasn't for the help of the people here at WA I probably would have thrown in the towel. Everyone is REALLY concerned about you. I found that if one person's answer doesn't make sense, keep trying. Another one down the line will "speak your language". I hope I helped in some way. If not, keep asking. Someone will "speak your language". Have a great day! Good luck!

Hello, Regina. Take it from someone who has dedicated a great deal into this dilemma. I started out here 3 months ago, finished the "Green Course" and I've been struggling with the exact same question you are asking right now!

Now, thanks to the community, and more straight-forward, "ericcantu" I finally got the answer I was looking for. So here's what I came up with...

In this course, you will do a website based on promoting WA. It will focus on the product WA and by picking your target audience you will then aim to that perspective. For example...In this lesson, we are taught that there are more to it than just what is in front of you. In fact, by visiting different WA members profiles and interact with them, you will quickly see that they are all tied up to here from different backgrounds. If you choose one of these target audiences you need to see through their eyes. This is how you will use this lesson into a count for the Black Course of promoting WA towards a Target Audience.

If this got you confused, I should speak up loud and clear, hang on. Let me just clear my thorat...*eh-hrmm*...

There we go.
Ok.

- If I am to focus - "Single moms"...
I can give this specific audience value that would be of worth to them in person by pointing out pros from using WA. Keywords that comes to mind would be to have financial stability, make a website for your children, create a safe playground with easy steps, connect with other like-minded people, activate your mind and discover yourself, be an asset to others, learn about starting a business - as in setting your mind to it. All of these could be starters for an article to show certain parts with the help of images to vividly explain the benefits and value they receive from signing up in here.

If I am to focus - "Broke teenagers"...
Instead, keywords that come to mind would be: to make quick money, create an instant website, learn marketing the right way, spend time making money etc...

Not to forget the "Retirees"...
For them building website might not be as interesting as for treating their own online business (which a website should be treated as). have support along the way and make new connections...

In terms of using these keywords in a natural manner, you could simply use initiations like: "This service would benefit especially if you fee..." (examples: Alone. No tech skills and suffers from mental illness.)

As for me, I've decided to go with the retired persons, especially those who carry with them, mental illness. (3 of 5 people already suffers from it as it is and Premature Retirement increase the risk of mental illness by another 40%. (source: BBC News))

All in all, you will focus your desired perspective towards your target audience. And since the website will still be about promoting WA as a solution to whatever your audience are facing in their lives (e.g. lack of time, lack of knowledge, wish to connect, curiosity, tired of being scammed, etc etc...) WA can provide a solution to help that.

I strongly recommend that you start taking a good look at the service that is offered in here. Here you will see all you can gain from WA. And by staying on the homepage, covering each section within the menu and text content, you can highlight things to use in promoting it. The whole idea of this is to help you to reach out to those you wish to affect. You will provide a solution with needs and desires they haven't found out yet.And since your market covers almost over 50% of the entire world population (access to a computer and high-speed internet) I truly believe that the potential is UNLIMITED!

Hopefully, this helped you understand the concept. I remember, I sure felt relieved once I understood it.

As a premium, you will also have the features "Classrooms" - Where you can post questions in different sections to aim different 'experts' inside the community. Or "Private Messaging" - Which probably is explanatory enough. But for the formality, is an instant inbox, connected to your individual WA Profile. It can therefore not be accessed from outside these walls and is fully secure and supported.

However, if you ever feel insecure about the process overall or just need some support along the way remember... Help is just a message away. Either to me through here, on my profile, to the community from using live chat or do exactly what you did now - post inside training, as instructed.

Side-note:
I apologize if this came across as; unscripted, repetitive or even over-explanatory (with no actual point.) I wrote this on my smartphone, one-handed with some time pressure and limitations to review it afterward.

Wishing you all the best of success and progress in business and life.
Best of luck

That means a lot, thank you, Regina! I'm happy to be part of the solution and wish you great success.

Oh, something that came to mind:
Take a moment and think of your target audience and the issues that they are facing. From there you will have a better starting point to practice it onto your branding direction. This is more than just a marketing strategy - It is the Value of your whole business and brand. Value is all tied up with how well your messages will proceed in terms of being successful. Because of the global scale of the internet (and the many-many resources available), it would be a waste of time to click on something that lacks value to you. If you think about it, but not too much, most of your free traffic will come from the search engines, this means that you are competing for the visitor to pick your site out of all that matches the same criteria as you!

If I would describe "The Ultimate Searching Experience" it would go like this...
I need something, so I search for it. - I find something that matches my request, so I click on it. - As it turns out, this was exactly what I wanted, and more. It even over-delivered beyond my wildest dreams. This would be defined as "the solution". - The solution could be anything from DIY or even a service/product to be bought. - Because of the amazing over-delivery, this source proved to be an asset and must, therefore, be of great value to me as a visitor. This will then quickly translate into Trust, Loyalty, and Affectionate Behavior, overall.

When you've reached this state, you will have a happy and loyal customer - happily willing to use whatever you throw at them. Ideally not necessarily for themselves but to help YOU. This could also be to involve promoting, signing up, subscribing and (yes, even) buying sometimes.

The most common factor towards buying behavior, in general, is connected to feelings. And when someone applies to this behavior they are defined as customers. If this would result in a happy one as well, then they will all, soon or later, return - Which lastly would prove to be due to loyalty. As in, Loyal towards your brand and your success. Devoted to helping in any way they possibly can.

If you need a valid example, take a look at the WA and the value it brings. Try to quickly summarize, with 3 words how you feel about co-founder and owner Kyle or Carson here at WA. Towards their efforts and presence in your progress.
We all know that the WA empire is mainly built on our money for the Premium Memberships, but none of us could ever hold that against them because the value is so much more and without it, this place would just be an "air-castle". Like every other Scam out there. - Built from empty promises of great rewards with no guarantees.

As you can see - Thanks to the Value this was all possible.
Keep this in mind when you move through the training and you will have every reason to go just as far as you want.

Fortune favors the bold.
Your ally, Robin

In our everyday lives we encounter people in low-paid and even undesirable and/or unfulfilling jobs. How about carrying a supply of promotional leaflets or business cards all the time and give one to every shop assistant - waiter/tress, bar tender, pump attendant, etc we meet? Or the next time we take a train journey, just walk through the train distributing leaflets? Just a suggestion.

I am not good at handing leaflets out - if there is someplace to put a flyer, like a bulletin board, that would be better for me if we were to do print advertising.

Such great content. I know SEO and long tail KW are the way to go when you don’t have the big KW/Ad budget. If you are brand new to marketing, advertising, or the online space, I would read this over & over. If you get this down, affiliate marketing will be easy. Think about it, obviously WA sells.....we are all proof. So if you can get people to the WA site (using your affiliate link of course) you will make money. The only thing missing from the equation is getting people to the WA site, right? Well this training solves that problem. Equation figured out.

Back here in the UK we have a massive surge in people reaching retirement age (the baby boomers). This is an emerging market. Just ask 'What are these pensioners going to need and want'? and fulfill that need.

While also providing an inspirational free daily personal daily encouragement. meanwhile I could also have partnering links available to help lead my readers to other possible directions. Thoughts?

Well my thought of the other directions were I guess something I probably dhpuld have evexplained better. I have mmy ideas on ldschool papers and notes. But I wanted to start with a blog of the encouraging dort. To help people bring their spirits up and. Possibly if I can figure out how. Make it sort of an interactive site. Not in the sense I am talking with them, but rather I had come up with a handful of other site ideas that would be along the lines of pushinv someone toward a better place. Helping them to move forward. Figure out what's holding them back. Pretty much all sites designed for people yo get referred to WA itself. I wasn't thinking so much of outside sites. Although, because of the nature of of my blog and the fact I am looking to reach people who may be at a rock bottom. I feel like I should not just for moral purposes state I'm not a doctor of course, but have somewhere if you feel like harming yourself or others leasr call 911, and offer a suicide hotline number. Those were the only things not WA I was thinking about. My purpose for the blog was to hopefully get someone who msy not have faith in thrmself to the point where they would possibly see the importance in change and know they can mskr it happen. Meanwhile I do have my other site ideas. I get what you are saying and thsnk you for your imput. But after hopefully explaining myself better do you still think that I shouldn't use it to promote WA? And seriously thsnkbyou for your honedty. I am OK making changes to plans if it is for the better. Gotta be flexible in thus life or I'll break. And in this case I'll be broke if I'm not willing to bend lol.

I want to target college and university students interested in Entrepreneurship Programs. I was once a college student but I was an adult/fulltime working college student. I returned to school at the age of 27 and finished with my masters at the age of 35. In the midst of working through my degree programs, I was interested in entrepreneurship but didn't really know what direction I wanted to go into business wise. So, now that I've found Wealthy Affiliate, I believe targeting people who have the same struggle I had is my niche...for now.

Hey Carl, I'm new too, but I think that you do the training under the green tab "Get Started Here" to build what you describe. The "Affiliate Bootcamp" is to get you set-up ASAP to promote WA and earn commissions from that.

I was thinking of targeting people who are working away from their homelands because there aren't enough high paying jobs in their rural regions of New Zealand. In particular our Maori indigenous people who have been forced to live in Urban cities. This in effect could apply to many other worldwide nations where many people have to find work in the bigger cities to make a viable income for their families. D0 you think this may be limiting my market?

I think it will not limit your possibilities. I guess you know all about the Maori, but you will have to discover the same about those minorities all over the world, as they might not experience the same kind of issues.

Hey Kyle:

I was looking through this tutorial and had a question.

You started with a seed keyword and entered it in the WA keyword tool. You dug deeper and found one below the 300 QSR competition.

Then, you went to Google and entered the seed keyword again to get suggested keywords. However, you did not see what the competition / QSR was to determine what keywords to attack.

Why did you use Google to find suggested keywords? For one, isn't that what the keyword tool is for? Plus, you can see the competition when using the KW tool.

Thanks for clarifying.

Hi there!

I believe what he did was called the alphabet soup technique to get ideas for keywords that he then put into the keyword tool to see what the QSR is.

It basically allows Google to come up with keywords for you by filling in the blank. Here's more info should you need it.

Hope this helps,
Michelle/Anne

Hi Michelle/Anne:

Thanks for the reply.

What you said makes sense. If he had the tutorial in that order, i.e. "alphabet soup" for keyword ideas > Keyword Tool for more ideas and competition check, then I wouldn't have any questions.

If you understood what he meant, then it's just me and my ignorance :( Thanks for clarifying that for me!

My niche is football and I make my website focus more on the English Premier league's club manchester united. So would that mean my target audience is football fans who follow the English premier league matches and who are likely to be Manchester United fans?
my website domain is: myunitedfootball.com
Please visit it and tell me what you think. Thanks.

we must remember our audience is the "IT" they are the "GOD" of what you are aiming for.
Customer service is so drilled into us in the retail environment I work in and guess what the customers know it and more so online. If they don't like your shop they go to the next one and online it's by the click of a button.
What I am saying is, if you have this super dooper site with amazing dazzle and incredible content it means nothing if no one is reading it.
Therefore choosing your audience and pinpointing there needs and keeping them satisfied is the answer to anyone's success out there.
I am busy learning to focus in on just that.

To be honest. I don't think I understand the Lesson Target Audiences for Wealthy Affiliate.

Hi there,
The key here is to choose an audience that you feel comfortable with. That may be one of the examples used by Kyle, it may be something completely different. You are not tied to any of these, but you do need to choose an audience (a niche) to market to. This decision will determine what your brand will be, your website domain, look and feel, it's content and promotion. If you can, try and think about a completely different niche to everyone else - one that has great traffic potential and no competition. It's a research exercise in Jaaxy, but you'll eventually find the perfect niche. The examples given by Kyle are just that. I'm sure you can think of others. It requires some creative thinking, but you'll get there. And when you do, the world is your oyster.

This is why I love affiliate marketing they sky is the limit. WA to me has some of the best training to really zero in on any passion that you may be considering venturing into.

Upon on joining, I had no idea where to begin and I have used WA countless times for reference since becoming a member. Almost anything you may need to know about marketing is here.

It truly is evergreen since the good folks at WA are always changing as the industry does. Unlike some courses that end up being outdated within months.

Not to mention there are so many experts on so many topics here. So you can literally find help in any niche.

thanks for the reminder. One of the mistakes I made the first time around was not to define the target audience correctly, and therefore not connecting with them on a deeper level. Not making this mistake this time around.

So the goal is to define the target audience: Stay At Home Moms who want to create an independent income

Now the next task for me is to learn to connect with them. I think that is the harder part. While I am in the midst of that target audience, I feel like an outsider looking in. Does anyone have suggestions on how to connect with your target audience to create a "community" of followers?

Thanks!

I am interested in helping veterans and others understand that there are legitimate businesses out there.

Or watching a 45 minute video only to find out it leads you to another buy proposition. Life is to short to waste time on FLUFF and no substance.

Is it ok for me to target health and wellness business owners? I want to help personal trainers, massage therapists, yoga instructors, acupuncture professionals, physical therapists, holistic practitioners, nutrition and weight loss counselors, etc. to get found online whether thru their website or social media. I am passionate about health and wellness and since I have a massage therapy practice and have found some success in bringing in a lot of new clients, I feel like I can be a help to others. Thanks to my extensive learning here at Wealthy Affiliate all my websites sit on page 1 of Google and when searches are done my websites appear towards the top of Google. You see, when I first came to Wealthy Affiliate, my original website - well I was FORCED to change it over to Wordpress. I did not know a daggone thing about Wordpress. But I found Wealthy Affiliate and went through all the tutorials. I have since then added additional websites. The most fantastic thing I have found about the WA platform is the fact that when I have created a new website and took the time to actually set it up and write content, it IMMEDIATELY (within a week) was on the first page of Google! What the heck?! That is what finally totally sold me on Wealthy Affiliate and is the reason I continue to hang around month after month. Anyway, back to my question - Is it ok for me to target health and wellness business owners as my niche?

Yes you can. In health and wealthnes niche you can target the audience for affiliate marketing not for WA. But I suggest you can still promote WA using Subdomain in WA. You may create subdomain for your domain. If your domain name is Https://migrainecure.com subdomain will be https://migrainecure.subdomainname.com

Hi Marco,
Sounds good. Just a small word of warning from my own experience. I am from the UK and like you decided with one of my sites to target a niche to a UK only audience. If you are doing the same for Italians you may want to keep in mind that as a result I get limited traffic to my sites, and hence very limited income from it. I find that of all of my sites, the ones that target a global audience about a specific niche perform the best.

Just thought I'd share that with you in case you wanted to rethink. It may be your particular niche is a lot more lucrative than mine (mine was targeting local tourism), but I thought I'd let you know just in case you found the same after putting a lot of work into your new site.

Good luck with it though. I hope it goes well for you :-)

No worries Marco,
As long as it target the worldwide audience - which I guess is predominantly English speaking - then you'll be fine.

There are plugins out there that allow you to more easily make your site multi-lingual so, if the reader wanted to, they could switch from english to Italian - or vice-versa.

What I suggest, try and use Jaaxy to get an idea about competition in your niche keywords. Use long keywords - sometimes it makes entire phrase: like this: life changing opportunities with online education.
When you run your keywords Jaaxy will calculate competition, and you can make a decision if the keyword is suitable or not.

What about a target audience in the service/restaurant industry? I would like to target those workers, maybe making $2.13 an hour (been there, done that!). The laws surrounding that pay scale are hard to learn about and employers don't seem to know (i.e. if servers aren't making minimum wage during slow hours, employers are supposed to make up this difference), so maybe a keyword about the laws of employers paying only $2.13/hr. Thoughts anyone?
Reply
kimwolfe Premium
That sounds like a great way to help people! Does this have a name? I’m dont believe it’s referred to as minimum wage. I googled it to find “tipped employees” as away to categorize some one who makes 2.13 an hour. The right keyword can be important to target who you are helping. Not only can you guide them on what they need to know and how to get what is lawfully guaranteed to them, you can recommend other ways for them to make money. You have tons of possibilities here.

oK, here's something that I think can really help a specific group of people in the US. people who are trying to be sober. people who may be on probation or have experienced criminal charges due to addiction and drunk driving. The angle is to provide helpful information related to self-improvement while recognizing the need to be or maintain sobriety, and to provide an additional income for these people. It's based on my own experience and journey and the need to find a focus and hope that is often hard to imagine when facing these daunting circumstances, mounting bills, and sometimes a major life adjustment. I really think a good number of people who find themselves in this sort of trouble do so because they lack maturity in one or more aspects of their life, and they have not found satisfaction in the current job market. I remember meeting a friend who had gotten sober and I feared he would be a different person. He turned out to be actually the same person but a much better version. I told him so, and I think about that often. I hope I can help people become a better version of who they are, and help them realize that as well as make a living pursuing a passion. what do you guys think?

Tough road to hoe. There is a huge market out there. I would think though that you might want to focus on all substance abuse and not limit yourself to alcohol abusers.

I'm getting a peripheral view of what this is all about right now. (Not me but a close associate) It is a hard thing not just for the primary person but for the family and friends involved as well.

If you can provide a solution and support structure for these people, that would be a wonderful thing.

I think it's a good idea. I know a lot of people who have had their lives heavily impacted by isolated mistakes while under the influence of alcohol or drugs - some of those people were also abusers of drugs or alcohol. I can think of two who paid dearly (as they should to a degree) and they both people that are generally good and have a lot to contribute to society. However, it's been years and neither have recovered from their mistakes.

I would like to be able to help fathers, such as me, who have daughters that work at sports bars in clothing that accentuate the scenic views or advertise owl watching. I have nothing against such establishments and may have been at them on occasion. I stopped going when I realized that the women working there were not much older than my daughter. Anyhow, she has had no harassment issues, but I would gladly pay for a years worth of WA to allow her to make her spending money? That is a very tight drill down to a target audience, but can it be that specific? Also, if targeting college students, is having a presence at career fairs and perhaps dorm flyers or stadium/arena advertising beneficial at all?

Hi Kyle and all,

Thank you. Most of this makes sense, but...

Here is what I don't understand about finding and then using the keywords... I don't see how I could naturally target most of the keywords, which in reality often turn out to be low hanging fruits... How could I write a post that aims to bring minimum wage workers to WA using "how minimum wage affects businesses" or "...higher paid employees" or "...unemployment" keywords? Actually, in this case, I don't even see the connection between my chosen audience and either of these keyword phrases: why minimum wage workers would care about higher paid employees, businesses or even unemployment? I don't think my niche people will ever google these keyword phrases. And yet, my article has to organically lead to "join Wealthy Affiliate" message from one of these keywords, which I am supposed to use in the Title and in the first couple paragraphs. How? What am I missing in this concept? Kyle, would you really use any of the keywords from "how" group, or was this just not a very good example, and you'd continue searching for other more relevant keywords?

Thank you,
~ Julia

Hi Craig,

I appreciate your response, but that's not what I asked... I understand that minimum wage workers are great as a targeted audience for WA referrals. I don't understand how to use these keyword phrases: "how minimum wage affects businesses" or "...higher paid employees" or "...unemployment". If you don't mind to re-read my original question, I'd love to learn from you.

Thank you for your time,

A potential WA affiliate may see or want to determine the connection between: minimum wage mindsets, and higher paid mindsets, minimum wage and business owners, the comparative fees (capital) to get started in different programmes, or to even do campaigns about the economy, minimum wage, and the looming risks and gloom of unemployment without any backup. Remember that the reader in the audience may not necessarily search those keywords verbatim, only partially, but may still pull your content if ranked well.

These type of keywords may return high quality affiliates as well, since they are persons seeking to understand how to satisfy an audience that is looking to get out of the 9 - 5 rat race, or rigidity and lack of freedom of traditional corporate jobs.

Also you don't have to use it in the first few paragraph's but spread it out and make each of your paragraphs have a relation to campaign topic, theme, or issue.

Hope this helps, however it may be just an example here.

Jewelia Premium
Hmm... Thank you very much, Paul. You brought up several good points, which are helpful. But I am still not convinced that "how" group of keywords in Kyle's example is appropriate for the task he defines.

The assignment Kyle sets in this tutorial:
1. Point your audience to Wealthy Affiliate as a resource for success online.
2. Your target audience is Minimum Wage Workers
3. And closer to the end of the tutorial:
Use any of these 4 search terms:
"how minimum wage works"
"how minimum wage affects businesses"
"how minimum wage affects higher paid employees"
"how minimum wage affects unemployment"

I read your response 3 times trying to mentally plan my own blog targeting these keywords (#3) with a goal of delivering "join Wealthy Affiliates" message (#1) to minimum wage workers (#2). I still can't connect all three.

One or even two of three given conditions fall out of the picture... I hear you saying that the topics addressed by these keywords(#3) may find "a potential WA affiliate" (#1), but "a potential WA affiliate" in this case is not " minimum wage worker"(#2), which would not be a problem if... the rest of my blogs were not focused on targeting this group. But they were and therefore most of the visitors to my website ARE minimum wage workers.

I am very meticulous in this particular example, but of course, I am not running this exact scenario. I am trying to understand the line of thoughts for my own niche and for a different target audience in WA referrals.

Do you understand my confusion? What am I missing? If all pieces don't seem to fit together, what should I do: move on to different keywords, or not to worry about the originally chosen audience? I am sure I am over-complicating something and somewhere... What and where, please?

Thank you,

Hi Julia - as a minimum wage employee constantly looking for income opportunities outside of work, I can tell you that in my quest I certainly googled things like "how to get a higher paying job" or "unemployment alternatives"

Hi, I’m no expert but I understand what you are asking and I believe you create a list of these keywords to ensure you use them in Articles you post on your blog that the search engines will pick up.

You could choose anyone as a niche. Like you could use many unemployed workers have now chosen internet marketing to earn extra cash and replace working 9-5 etc. or one on higher paid employees are often made to do more work than is required etc and promote wealthy affiliate within that article. I hope this makes sense.

You have two choices on what type of site you want. Or, you can have two sites! LOL First, you can pick a niche that you are very interested in and build it from there. I have always loved to create things so my niche is customized printed items. Second, you can build a site that drives traffic back into WA. You need to decide what is more exciting for you and gets your juices going. If doing the WA site is uncomfortable try something different. A hobby you love or something you have always dreamed of. The process should always be fun and exciting.

Is there a newer version of this article? After reading it through once, i decided to go back and substitute with my idea of target audience. When i click on the View Result button, a pop-up window comes up titled keyword competition and states the competition QSR is xxx number, not what the image above that shows what appears to be a google search result. Am I misunderstanding the directions?

Thanks in advance for any help.

NicoleJBN Premium
It appears that the article has been updated in June 2017 as seen underneath the title. However, the images are showing the older keyword tool version. It has since been updated and the window you're talking about is showing you the competition directly without having to use the Google search feature.

This is for your convenience and to give you an instant idea how competitive the keyword you're searching for is. If you prefer the Google search results as shown in the article, you can always go to Google and perform a manual search using the following search term.

"YOURKEYWORDHERE"

For example, your keyword is baby seats. You'd search in Google like this:

"baby seats"

This helps Google to search anything using this keyword only. This gives a more direct result in terms of competing websites and articles focusing on the same keyword.

To get to the point, the popup window with the QSR result is the shortcut to the manual Google search. The lower the competition, the better you can rank for the keyword. Rule of thumb is to try to find keywords with a QSR of 300 and less. More would be too competitive. It'd be harder and take longer to rank for it.

I have a question ...

I haven't been at WA very long (about 6 weeks or so) and am still very new. However, I have been so impressed and immensely grateful for all the support and help that I've experienced thus far in the Certification course, that I've convinced myself to start the Bootcamp as well in order to not only promote WA but hopefully help others who are looking for alternative ways of earning an income from home.

Let me be honest here in saying that I haven't earned any income yet (and wouldn't expect to in such a short amount of time and no experience) and I'm still learning the basics to becoming an online entrepreneur.

However, my question is, even though I lack the experience and knowledge of whether WA will work for me or not (or anyone else for that matter), can enthusiasm for WA alone be enough to follow the Bootcamp training and become a WA affiliate or do I wait until I have completed the Certification course in its entirety?

I would appreciate any thoughts or comments - thank you.

You can do it either way. You can just work on Bootcamp...many others have done that, though I have not yet. It is probably easier to just do one at a time though, not both at once!

I did wander if I would be stretching myself too thin but I also thought that alternating between the two would help keep me from getting "bogged down". If I concentrate on just one thing and put all effort into it, sometimes I can get quite stuck and then frustrated. Whereas, if I have the option to give one thing a break and do something else (even though in this case, it would be kinda similar), it may keep me from going insane!

I guess the only way to find out would be to trial it and if it gets too much, I can always come back to the Bootcamp at a later date.

Thank you - I'm grateful for your insight.
