We are all recommended to choose niches we are passionate about.

Although I believe we can all find niches we are passionate about, some of these niches present a greater natural challenge in getting niche followers/ readers to sign up for WA memberships.

For instance having a personal passion for "disparate niches" - niches where your reader might have no apparent reason toward any interest of making money online - i.e.,a "fly fishing" enthusiast could be a harder sell getting them to signup for a WA premium membership, than say, some who's passion niche is MMO (Making Money Online).

Let's put affiliate marketing income aside for now, and make believe you have ZERO interest in adding links or this is not an option. For the sake of this question, we are ONLY interested in generating our income through WA referrals and premium signups.

How do you bridge your reader's interest from your "disparate" passionate niche to bringing them to signup as a premium on WA?

Present some concrete examples from your own "disparate niches" of how you would go about convincing a reader through your blog posts to signing up with WA.

I am a premium Kayu member that found WA not looking for building a web site. My interest was totally in a different zone at the time and he was capable of fishing me into WA with his very creative niche.That had to do with health. I guess I am a very different fish to fry(o:
I know that he is a very prominent member of WA and has been to Vegas not once but several times. Not all of us can be that way but it does work.

Well for me it is simply how long will you work hard and make someone rich. Sacrifice your free time to learn how to build an online business. The internet is within reach.

There @ kind of people that can realise it. The millennial kid that has seen most of the life at an early age, the gain more insight about how to world works and the one who hit the rock bottom they are the one that will do everything that it takes to make it happen.

Yes it's best to work very smart at your own business and make yourself rich, then to work really hard and make some else rich! I agree Sheikave!

I think the idea is to get yourself into to a position where you are earning money (thats what we are here for isn't it), and you do this writing about a subject your are familiar with.

Once you are getting traffic to your site, and you have some money coming in, you can then create a second site promoting WA, this will take longer for you to get traffic and customers because the competition is so high.

But because you have some sort of income from your first site you are not under pressure to make money from your WA site.

Plus the fact you have learn't what it takes to create a successful site and can present yourself as a successful affiliate marketer.

I hope you find this helpful.

I believe you have "nailed it" Bill. Congrats!
And that means we are in total agreement, for this is precisely what I've been saying.

You need a 2nd separate dedicated site to sell and maximize WA premium sales - it won't be very effective using a "fly fishing site" or a "basketball site" or any other type of hobby passion niche site.

However, you can START with a hobby niche site you are very passionate about, and make money FIRST with an affiliate marketing program no doubt selling affiliate products-- but direct WA premium sales will NOT WORK driving new customers only through a "passion" hobby niche site.

Unless your passion niche happens to also be an MMO (Making Money Online) niche site or a niche site such as one targeting baby boomers who never saved enough money for their nest eggs, such as Don's (dchapman3) current niche.

Any niche that appeals to you no matter whether disparate or not, I am sure you if justifiable grounds exist to create them, why not?
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
You can write for any passion niche if your primary focus is on making money from affiliate marketing alone, Q.

However, for the purpose of this question, I am only talking about generating income by maximizing WA premium signups. Nothing else.

Kaju,

Anything is possible when or if you believe. Your destiny includes everyone that is lucky and fortunate to read your posts. Don't over think it, Kaju. I'm just saying...sometimes your own medicine is the best medicine.

Kindly,

Becky

P.S. Let the fly fisher fish for Wealthy Affiliate, haha. Thy might just find what they are looking for, and if not than email him a post, and if not just keep writing, lol. All joking aside...I support you. Las Vegas waits for you, regardless. Take care.

Thanks Becky, I always appreciate your great support. I will ALWAYS do as I do, and write as I write, but sometimes I like to dig deeper, and check "under the hood"

A stale Kaju would be a crispy one. And that would be very sad, haha. Go to a place where no man has gone before. I think that's how the interpretation of Star Track sounds but if not, well, you get the idea, lol.

Yes, absolutely keep that circuit board and hardware functioning at all times. :) Have a good Saturday, Kaju. ~ Becky :0)

It’s about being creative with your wording through a catchy and captivating headline that will peek interests and inspire. For example, If you have a photography website you could have a post on ‘How I started my successful photography website!’ or something to that effect.

This might not be the best option, but it is an option. The best would be to have a WA specific site for promotion of creating referrals.
Anything is possible!
All the best,
Marcus

No doubt, this is the best way.

I'm new to WA but I think I know a little about consumer behavior. There is a strong correlation between success online and giving your audience the information/product/solution they are looking for. Unless they are specifically looking to build a business, generate an income, or something along those lines, you won't be able to entice them into WA. WA has to be the solution to their specific need or desire.

Thank you D, that means you are in TOTAL agreement with what I am expressing here. You are very perceptive!

I can't imagine that this can work very well, Kaju. If an enthusiast is visiting a "fly fishing" blog, for example, he is most likely not looking or open for information on affiliate marketing. Instead, it might put the visitor off a bit to find a link that has nothing to do with the general subject area.
So I would keep the two niches separate.

However by joining and creating a passive income, the person could have more time to go fly fishing. A laptop could even be taken to use between casts.!

Sammy-B Premium
That's true, but it probably not be of interest to that person in that situation. If I go to a flower website to get some ideas for spring flowers, I certainly wouldn't be interested in affiliate marketing at that time even if I would be open to that at other occasions. So it's more about the appropriateness in that situation.
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
Yes, I agree with that. However, that is a harder sell. There are more convincing steps involved. This is my whole point here, Helen.

Certain niches naturally lead to more direct conversions.
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
That's exactly my point, Sammy. You are right on, and we are in total agreement here.

My feeling is the people who succeed most at getting premium signups are in MMO-type niches, and are also the ones with a separate dedicated website or landing ONLY or that purpose.
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
Precisely Sammy. Few would convert in this case, because there would be many more steps toward making the sale.

The make money online niche is just one of thousands. WA is all about training how to build a successful online business in affiliate marketing in ANY niche. Wanting to promote WA is purely optional. So no matter what niche your referral chooses, going premium with WA is a no brainer since this training will show them exactly how to grow their business in affiliate marketing in any niche they choose. There's no need to convince them to promote WA at all.
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
Yes I get that Eric, as I mentioned for now let's take affiliate marketing completely out of the equation.

Say I ONLY want to promote WA and signup referrals WITHOUT any affiliate marketing at all. Yes, I KNOW we aren't limited to this. But for the sake of this question, let's do that.

Now how do we reconcile such disparate niches to build WA premium signups only? Or perhaps we cannot.
Reply
ericcantu Premium
What I'm saying is that disparate niches don't have to focus on getting WA referrals. Going premium with WA will always be a great move for all members since WA shows everyone exactly how to build their business, build their following, build traffic, and be profitable in any niche they choose.
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
Again Eric, I think you are misunderstanding me here. I am not talking about the niche my REFERRAL has chosen, I am talking about a disparate niche WE as marketers choose.

Certainly "disparate" passion niches such as hobby niches i.e., "fly fishing, basketball, gaming, etc" - again these are only examples - would naturally be a greater reach to draw referrals to WA premium signups.

However, if your true passion was in an MMO niche (Making Money Online - and this is only one example), this niche provides a much easier and direct conversion to premium, since for this niche your job is strictly to write product reviews of competing MMO products to target people who already want to make money online, then comparing them to WA .

This niche naturally will lead to much easier conversions to a premium sale, simply because the prospect is already pre-sold on the idea of trying to make money online rather then a prospect who shares your interest in a "disparate" hobby niche.

I agree with everything else you say; ANY free member going premium with WA would certainly benefit doing so on all counts because of the great training here.

However, it seems that if you truly want to maximize your referrals to go premium, the consensus is you need a separate website or landing page dedicated ONLY for that purpose. To sell prospects on converting to WA premiums.

What I'm saying is that if you're in a niche like fly fishing, or basketball, or gaming, you're goal isn't to find people to join WA at all. That's not your audience :) And to be successful in a niche like that you would never need to get people to join WA.

That's why there are two separate training curriculums here. The OEC for every niche imaginable and the Bootcamp for promoting WA :)

I have a retirement niche that is targeting the retiring class and baby boomers. Statistic show that the majority of people retiring today do not have an adequate retirement fund.

Only 24% of baby boomer (millions of them) retiring today are confident they have saved enough, but most of those have not included the rising cost of healthcare.

Thus, this is targeting them to join wealthy affiliate and make money online.

I'm too early in this to think that this strategy will not work.

Writing content and maturing the site.

jetrbby80316 Premium
Actually Don, the retirement niche you have chosen I would think is an excellent niche for signing up WA premium referrals.

Thee people you are targeting are folks who are close to retirement age but have never saved enough in the "nest egg" for retirement - they are perfectly primed to convert to WA premiums!

Much different from starting out with a "disparate" hobby type niche such as "fly fishing". So this is actually aligned with the point I have been trying to get across.

Thank you Don!

Although I tell my viewers how I built my border terrier related website, i.e. with the aid of WA, I don't think my referrals have come from that website, but rather from my other website dealing with working from home ideas. So, maybe Elaine is right there :)

You might have the right answer, Elaine. Perhaps there ISN'T any way, you'd have to create a separate niche site.

I hope there is though.
