So, for years now I have been trying and failing, yet learning how this online marketing/entrepreneurship stuff works.
I've not made a penny for the countless hours i've spent writing content, on social media and doing other things.
I except that I haven't been good enough to push on and make that 1st dollar, let alone go on to make a decent living from this.
My first blog was called mynewlifeacademy.com and to be honest, it was terrible, i couldn't write, the blog was terrible, I didn't have a clue how to use social media to build traffic, email lists, tags, or any of the basic and more complicated skils and knowledge for it to succeed.
It was a self help blog, that needed help.
Then there was my T-shirt venture. I spent £130 on 25 awful t-shirts with my own design on it to sell on ebay.
I only sold then to friends and family.
Then there was applanddevelopment.com. the clue as to what that was is in the domain name.
It was a website were people who wanted an phone app created and I'd outsource the work.
Then, my last venture was becomethemonster.com.
Now, this was my best venture yet, taking on all i'd learnt so far and putting it into this second self development blog.
Then, after 18months or so I'd lost interest and motivation to write about it and I felt that it hadn't built enough traction to take it on any further. I felt i was wasting my time with it and gave it up.
So, on to my next "idea".
I want to go through it with you guys and gals, to tell me what you think about it, how you all think it will do and lay a basic foundation of how it could do.
Now, I don't expect anyone to do the work for me. But any help, advice and guidance will be greatly appreciated.
This new idea stems from what I have been doing in my day job with more than 12 years of experience in and counting.
For those years, I have been a retail worker, working face to face with the public who buy our products and have learnt many skills that have eventually got me into a supervisory position at my current job.
The blog will basically be somehting for the retail workers, to help them improve what they do, somebody on their side, who can understand the frustrations and show them the right way and to become the best retail assistant possible and progress their career.
I will also be writing content about my own learning. I have, at the posting this thread, been in my first managerial/supervisory position in my retail career and learning in every shift I complete.
So this can be expanded to supervisors in retail and other industries too.
What are you thoughts on this niche? have you worked in it? is it viable?
Is there anything to consider before spending money and hours of time setting this up?
