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:

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.

The only way I can limit my search results on google is by quoting the search term as in the example. When I type it in without the quotes I get millions of results. I don't find any search term that would get me less then a million results.

Any help? :)

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.

SO glad you are enjoying them and these are things that you can "recommend" and audiences that you can target on your website (the keyword/research category, the website builder category, the hosting category, website analysis).

This is one way you can expand within your given niche. ;)

Revisiting this document after 3 months or so of working on my site I see things in a different light...I am astounded at how much I didn't take in before...even while I thought I was getting it. I can see I was being far too broad with my posts...I was too eager to get on. I am not saying I didn't learn a lot, I did, and I am pleased for things I learned. Good stuff.

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?

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.
