Writing to you today from beautiful Lake Placid, New York. I’m on vacation, and one of the main benefits of affiliate marketing online is the ability to work anywhere that there is an internet connection! If you are seeking information on the best niche website ideas, you’ve come to the right place! Today, I’m going to go over the Wealthy Affiliate University training that will teach you exactly that!
This lesson is from the Online Entrepreneur Certification classroom – Level 1 – Lesson 3 of 10 – Choose a Niche!
The definition of “Niche”
Choosing a niche is such an important part of starting your online business, so in the beginning of this lesson Kyle explains exactly what a niche is. The training is done by Kyle who is actually one of the creators and owners of the Wealthy Affiliate platform! Did you know that the Wealthy Affiliate program has been in existence for over 14 years? So many of the thousands of members on the platform have been with the program since its inception.
Let’s talk “niche.” This is the subject of your website. This is what you are going to make your website about. You want to choose a niche that you are passionate about, the reason being that you are going to be immersed in this niche as you build and maintain your website.
Kyle talks a lot about your niche because it is so important. In the world of Affiliate Marketing, your goal is to get traffic to your website. Traffic is people. People who come to your website to read your content. Why would you want to pour your heart out onto your blog to have nobody read it? No, you want a lot of traffic to your site, and in order to get that, you have to be approved by the search engines who will send that traffic your way.
Search engine optimization
Getting that traffic, or those people, to your website is done when the search engines, like Google or Bing, send those people to you. Let’s say you search for something like “fountain of youth lifestyle,” Google is going to pop up results for you to view:
When people search something you are writing about, you want to have your website appear at the top of the results for that search. That is what is called “search engine optimization.”
In this lesson, Kyle goes over how you are going to become an expert in your niche so that the search engines look at your site as credible and relevant and want to display your website on page 1 when people search for keywords related to your niche.
Something you love
I want you to begin to think about your niche and what you might choose. Kyle stresses in this training that you want to enjoy this venture, you should choose something you love for your niche, something you are passionate about! He talks about how he and Carson, the other owner and creator of the Wealthy Affiliate platform, are passionate about teaching people how to make money online (as am I).
I chose this niche regarding coaching for internet marketers because I have been a teacher my whole life, and I have been running my own online business for many, many years as well! It just made sense for me to choose this as my niche.
Making money in your niche
One of the things you will come to appreciate about the affiliate marketing business is that you really can make money in just about any niche you can think of. Wealthy Affiliate University will give you the tools and resources as well as the knowledge, and they train you to go after your dreams.
I’ve seen fellow marketers on the platform with website niches that range from diabetes to perfume, from children’s tablets to dog kennels. When I say anything, I really do mean anything. People are making money by providing solutions to their readers. People search online for information to help them, and as a blogger (affiliate marketer), you are there to provide that information for them. First and foremost!
The way you make money is by offering products that provide the answer or solution your readers are looking for. If they are searching for ways to look younger, you may present the best facial creams to make their skin look more youthful. If someone is curious about CBD Oil and what the best ones would be, you could research and present the best company to buy that product from.
Wealthy Affiliate training style
How do you learn best? Do you prefer written text to read from or do you learn best from video tutorials? Either way you prefer, you get both with the Wealthy Affiliate University training. Kyle will train you with written directions, screen captures and discussion, and then he includes a video to reiterate the training and show firsthand how things are done!
Let me take you inside the Wealthy Affiliate platform for a sneak peek at one of their training videos! You can view it by following the link here:
Inside the Wealthy Affiliate program, there are new trainings done daily, not only by the owners, but also by the other members. You will get training on every aspect of your business, and you can sort the training to find exactly what you are looking for through the search function
Let’s say, just as an example, you want training on “WordPress forum plugins.” You would merely search “WordPress forum plugins” in the training area of the platform, and all pertinent training modules will pop up like this. Take a look:
The training is unlimited, with new training being added every day! You can get a good sense of all that is available in these articles here:
