Eileen your offer is so kind. I just may do that. At this point I'm still reading the lessons and viewing the videos and will take the plunge of creating my first site when I feel confident. I'm not a writer so I'm feeling a bit insecure with coming up with original and interesting content. I'm aware that aspect of web design is a have to and will eventually get over it if I want to succeed. Lol.
Thanks again for your offer.

Hello Michael, thanks for the follow.

Looks like you are just starting up with and going premium which is great.

I read your blog about wanting to start a site. You know with your background I am guessing you might know about sounds systems, speakers, sound sets/hardware, plus I also see you have commercial photography background.

These are all potential niches that you can exploit here with WA's training.

There are many products you can promote in those areas that I mentioned.

You could even review products and I have seen some folks use their
photography skills to set up web sites where they might offer related services and sell their images, while at the same time doing reviews of camera accessories using low competition , long tail keywords.

All the best to you.

Thanks for your great ideas. I'm specifically wanting to create a couple sites related to guitar and trumpet players (all styles) and inserting YouTube videos, bios, etc if that's allowed. I'm talking lots of interesting content and perhaps some Amazon links in order to sell related products so as to start making some income. If anyone has any ideas how I might pull off such a task I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks again for yours and everyone's help and support. I'm new but can tell already this is an amazing community.

Good day and welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate community! The first thing I suggest you do is jump into a live chat and introduce yourself. You will find this on the main Dashboard within WA. Here you will find other members within the community (including myself) that you will be able to communicate with, network with and get help with. :)

Lots of help here and a lot of people that care about your personal success. If you get stuck, simply ask! I look forward to working with you!

Oh, and I wanted to also point you in the direction of the Getting Started Course which is located on your dashboard, and in the main menu under recommended training "Getting Started".

Hello again Kyle. Well it's been 3 years and I've taken the WA plunge yet again and really want to stick around this time and not run away scared of failure. Lol. But seriously I'm wanting to add to my monthly social security income but because of health issues I can't work any traditional part time positions. I do have a couple web site projects in mind that I'd like to discuss with you later but like I said first and foremost I want earn some extra income. So I was thinking about starting out becoming a WA Affiliate and learn more about web design and internet marketing. Later I then could build and add these other sites I've been toying with. They are music related. Do you think this is a good plan Kyle? I'm very open to your suggestions. If you support my plan do you suggest that I start out the WA Affiliate training right away or do some other training first. Well it's great to be back with WA and continue to be totally impressed with everything you have to offer. I'm looking forward to staying in touch with you and many others.

Thank you
Michael LaRue

Choose what you are most interested in Michael, that is the approach you should take with your niche. You can't go wrong either way and if you want to head through the Affiliate Bootcamp with your initial direction I would recommend you do so.

The key is focusing on one thing at a time, once you create success within ONE niche you can always diversify down the road.

If you need a hand as you build out your business, do know that I am here to help you out!
