Welcome to Day 6 of How (and Why) To Start A Profitable Blog E-Course, even if you’re a baby boomer like me!
If you missed anything in Day 5, you can access Day 5 again here.
Defining Your Niche
If you haven’t finished those lessons as of yet, you need to return to Day 5 and complete the action steps there before continuing.
You’ve already spent some time thinking about some topics that you want to blog about, but today is when you’re really going to wrap things up in terms of your niche.
Confused about what your niche should be? Don’t be! Here are some tips to follow:
- Choose something you love & are passionate about.
- Don’t worry – You don’t need to be an expert.
- Choose a niche that has related products/services for sale.
- Don’t get stuck here! Most peoples first niche is not their last. Alot of us (myself included) have changed their niche after working online for awhile.
Today is all about really defining your niche.
You’re going to return to the Online Entrepreneur Certification course inside Wealthy Affiliate and continue where you left off. You should have already completed Level 1, Lessons 1 & 2.
Continue now starting with Lesson 3. This lesson will show you the whole “niche” thing in much more detail.
By the end of lesson 3 hopefully you will have chosen your niche. If you need some more time to consider it, that’s fine. However, remember what I’ve said a few different times – Don’t get stuck on the niche. Pick one and move on to Lesson 4 where you’ll actually be creating your blog/website.
Creating Your Site
In Lesson 4 you’ll be creating your site.
I recommend that you start out with one of the 2 free sites that are included in your free starter account. You’ll be able to do this using the super easy Site Builder that is available inside Wealthy Affiliate. The training will walk you through the steps. You can actually create your site in less than a minute.
Since you’re still learning your way around the inside of Wealthy Affiliate, I recommend using one of your free sites at first….even if you’ve already upgraded to Premium and perhaps purchased a custom domain name for your site.
You can always switch your free site over to any domain that you purchase or already own at a later date.
