Can you help me out please.?

Last Update: December 06, 2018

Hi... A Very Good Day Ladies and Gentlemen...

I have a niggling Question... One that tickles and stumps my brain each and every time I try to setup an Online Business... It is this thing called Niches... But this time round... I have you guys to draw support from...

I am a very technical person by nature... And a Project Manager Professionally... So I always try to conduct a proper Risk Assessment which includes simulating the movements of internet traffic... Potential Conversion Points etc. when planning out my Projects.. And this is My Project...

The issue I am facing is that I can't seem to find a single Niche that suits me well... My general interest is working on Projects... Working on Projects involving the Internet... Especially those that make money from the Internet... But I don't have a knack for marketing just that...

I don't want to directly set up a Website only for Affiliate Programs as in only for Monetization Purposes Only... I don't want to come across as someone who is only into this... (Please Don't Feel Offended ya...). I would like to structure my Website into something like a Website depicting my experience... My Life Journey... How I became what I am today... What I want in life... What I want for me and my family... More of sharing of personal interests kind of thing... I was thinking of setting up a General Interests Website... Then channel the Traffic to more precise websites for monetization. What do you think...?

I believe this method is called a "Landing Page" or something like that... (I may be wrong with the Terminology but the general idea is not to have the affiliate links on the main page itself). I picked up the idea from a friend of mine who in turn got it from some training Program that did not work... Yeah... The Program did not work... But I liked this idea of a "Landing Page" which would be my main website... Then work on channeling the traffic to other websites for the conversion...

I can work on content for the Landing Page... Or Landing Site for that matter. All my thoughts and feelings etc. And work on reviews etc. on the more focused Sub-Sites per se. I think it can be a very elaborate setup but I wouldn't mind the hard work if it really works.

Also, is there a simpler way to do this...? Maybe have all of this in 1 Website versus in separate Websites...?

I have not completed the Website Building Part yet... Just about to start actually but this hangup on Niches is seriously picking my brain...

Any and all ideas are greatly appreciated and I will evaluate them all... God Willing...

Then I came across this Post by Smartketeer...

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/how-to-choose-the-p...

This is written in a way I can easily relate to...

Got me seriously thinking... I think I have an idea of how to proceed now... Only 1 Website... But structured enough with these items below...

  • Landing Page...
  • Subpages for Monetization...

This would make my Website Future Proof and Infinitely Expandable... right...?


I am sure you have also considered this approach...

Anyone actually tried making a Website like this... What's your experience like...? Could you share them with me...?

OR...

Are all Websites actually designed this way...? Mannnnn...

See how I pick my brain till there's noting left...???



🤣

Please... Let me know what you think of my idea... Please... Your most sincere comments... You can say I am Crazy... That's OK... I also think I am half-way there as it is...

Thank you very much in advance...


All the Best Ladies and Gentlemen... And see you at the Top... 🚀


p/s : Not to worry... I am still sane... 🤣😎😀

Dzul when I read your concerns, I immediately thought of you in Facebook. No offense, just an observation.

I do see where you want to go, I can't tell you yay or nay if either way is a good decision. I guess it comes down to you my dear brother.

Here at WA you can design your page and the direction you want to go without me telling you how to do it.

It's just at least for me I want to make money, front and center. My #1 priority.

Try doing it the way you told us, might work for you. See Dzul the founders here created this platform for us to do what we want.

It is your decision what direction you want to go. If anything else
what would happen if your site becomes "successful!" It would only be you who did it.

As for your niche, hmmm....um....well is there something you like?????? Maybe think of what you like? You like to gardent?
What about catching roaches to feed lizards? That could be a niche.


Goodluck Dzul, let me know how you doing!

Hi Frank...

Thank you very much for your thoughts...

I sincerely believe that the Website Design that I am thinking of building would reflect me on a holistic manner... My personality... The way I think etc. But the whole intention of an Online Business is to make money although that is not the first impression I want to give people. Hence the predicament I am facing...

Maybe I should give this a shot... At the worst case scenario... It doesn't work and I need to rebuild another site... But I am a Premium... I have provisions for 50 Website after all... right...? Only time and effort wasted...

Let me think this through and get it pegged down by today...

Thank you very much for your thoughts. I really appreciate it very much...

Nice place to hail from... Hawaii... I hope to visit Hawaii some day... I'll look you up if I do reach Hawaii...


All the Best and see you at the Top... 🚀

My blog is all about me. My last 4 posts don't have an affiliate link on them. It sounds like you just want to write about what you are doing. There is nothing wrong with that.

You can get yourself established and later consider ways to make money. It doesn't mean every page has affiliate links. I believe it is better if they don't. I often go to a website to find information and can't read it because of the advertising. I get out quickly.
There are lots of ways to monetize a website. Work through the certification training and just write about your interests and share your experiences and skills helping other.
A landing page is basically just a page you can send people to whether it is monetized or not is completely up to you.
You can always grow towards one particular topic once your website is established. There is no hard and fast rule that says you must and can only consider one niche and one niche only.
Enjoy your writing and make your website about what you can help people with and as you continue through the training it will all come together.
Wishing you all the best

Hi Kerry Ann...

My Theme is to actually help people... Like me... Who are always dealt the short end of the stick... Always ending up in trouble for staying true to our principles etc.

That's my theme for the Main Page... Then the sub-pages would be ways how to solve the issues they might be facing... Alternatives... Alternative incomes... Hobbies... Training... Interests... Things like that... Those can have some affiliate links...

In Basket Ball for example...

Favourite Player... Team... Rivalry... things like that... All have their own commemorative and marketing links etc.

Alternative income...
Affiliate Programs would be WA... Online Trading... Broker of choice...

Technology... Gaming Computers... Things like that...

But these niches I will build slowly... As I need to get enrolled into their individual affiliate programs first... right...?

If I do it this way... I think I have enough to keep on writing and sharing meaningful content... Personally researched and written... Original material...

Thank you very much for you reply... I really appreciate it...


All the Best and see you at the Top... 🚀

How about your niche being personal interests. Niches can be innovation in different products based on them.

Hi William...

I am interested in quite a number of things... That's the issue too. I cannot write 100 Posts for each item... But I could possible go 50 Blogs for example... For 50 items... But gradually building up...

Thank you very much for your thoughts... It has got me thinking...

Dzul,
You need to make your website/business the way you would
like to see it and how you feel others would like to see it -
in the first place if you make your website designed around
helping people with a certain problem - such as they have
too many days in a month and not enough money well then
you help them by finding them a better and more prosperous
way to earn without giving up all their time to a JOB.
Does this make sense to you :)

Hi Susan...

Thank you very much for your thoughts...

That's the thing... When I began looking for ways to find a way out of the situation I am in now... I never found anything that shared similar experiences... No website... Only responses in Forums etc. and that too... Just like an Advertisement... The rest are Affiliate Links...

I did not want that... I wanted to know if there are others who are experiencing or have experienced the predicament I am in now and what they have done to get themselves out of it... I couldn't find any articles at all.

That gave rise to thoughts that I am probably the biggest Idiot in the History of Mankind... But I don't think I am that unlucky... Then I joined WA and read from the Bios of those I follow as well as those who returned follow me... I found out that there are a whole lot of people who are going through similar difficulties in life... I think this particular niche is yet to identified much less acknowledged but from the training... I need to identify one niche... That's why I am picking my brain...

The training is developed by experts... And I am not even experienced... I cannot be correct... right...? But somehow... I keep on coming back to the structure I explained above... Hence the Blog Post to see if what I think is actually valid...

You guys are the best... Seriously the Best... I never thought I would get responses such as those here now... and only after a short period of time to boot...

Thank you very much. I can't begin to even explain how appreciative I am right now...

Dzul,
You have some very good responses here - the problem is
deciding how your style is going to lay out on a website -
I am going to tell you I have been here 5 months started my
#6 on the 3rd. I am not anywhere near as experienced as
other members.
But what I have learned is everyone has their own style and
when you find yours and get stuff out there that is what
people are expecting to see from you everytime you put
a new piece out.
Have you considered writing a business plan? This might help
you with an outline of how and what you seriously want.
Going into 2019 this is what I am going to be doing with two
domains I just purchased - I have content ready for them but
they are sitting there blank for now LOL :)
Once I get that outline and plan together then I will go about
creating those two sites.
Just food for thought.

Hi Susan...

Thank you very much for your thoughts...

Funny enough you should mention a Business Plan... I am actually putting one together for myself... Hence the Delays etc.

It is like second nature for me to do everything in a Project like manner... The 1st Phase is Concept Design which includes Risk Assessment, Feasibility Studies and Business Plan amongst others.

Our Premium Plan does not come with domains... right...? But comes with Web Hosting...?

I follow certain people on the Internet... Simply because I like their presentation style... How they argue topics... Discuss topics... Their thought process and opinions... right...? The uniqueness of my Website should be built on these aspects as well... right...? So that there are people who actually look forward to my posts...?

I believe I can do that...

Thank you very much for your thoughts... I really appreciate them... Seriously...

There is a lot to write if you think of it along these lines...

Hi Susan...

That was no tiny push Ma'am... That was exactly what I needed to start things rolling... No tiny feat to enable me to do that...

Seriously...

Thank you very much...

I'm not sure how to answer you. The preferred choice for a site niche is a somewhat narrow topic that you have enough passion for to be able to write lots of posts for and that there are affiliate products associated with so it can be monetized.

However, I do have a site that is non-specific, I have a city online mall site that has several "shops" dealing with the various interests the people in our community have. Its a very active retirement style community. So I have shops for fishing, golfing, hiking, kayaking, etc.

I can't say I'm making very much off the site so far but I'm still creating posts and have very few right now.

Hi Shirley...

I totally understand this... But can I use this as my secondary Website or page etc. ? My Main page is more of a personal sharing kind of thing...?

Can I ask for the link to visit your Website...? I don't know if there is a Policy against this but I would like to visit the Website built by my friends here in WA so that I can have an idea of how to proceed...

If there is a policy stopping this... Please let me know. I don't want to get anyone in trouble... Me included... 😆

WA is my Life Changer... I don't want to jeopardize it in any way...


All the Best and see you at the Top...🚀
