Thank you for being here and for being awesome. I want to start by saying that the conversation door is wide open here at Niche Twitch. I never want you to be afraid to leave me a comment or send me an email with a question. In fact, I strongly encourage it.
Hello. We may or may not have met in person yet, so I would like to first introduce myself to you. I’m Loretta Oliver. I’ve been working online from home since 2001. I’m married, we have four sons that have grown to be amazing young men – the youngest of which was born in 2001. Not hard to figure out that working from home became a necessity at that point, because nothing kills a small budget faster than childcare costs.
I was working as the evening manager in a telemarketing office (I apologize if I ever tried to sell you magazines back then), I was exhausted and there were some things going on with the upper management that just didn’t sit well with me, so I walked in one night, handed over my keys, packed my desk, and quit. It took awhile to find work, but I eventually started working from home doing data entry, then later I started doing virtual assistance work, and a few years later I started doing transcription work.
I love those things and I enjoy offering services, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years it’s that you don’t want your whole business to be just you, and there’s a ceiling when you’re trading time for dollars. If you don’t have time, you don’t have dollars, and the electric bill still needs to get paid. That’s what led me to build small niche websites and explore the different options that working online and content marketing have to offer.
Now, why am I here, on this website, talking about affiliate marketing and content and building websites?
The truth is there’s a lot of crap and fluff on the internet when it comes to marketing, especially niche and affiliate marketing. If you’re just starting out, there are hundreds, probably even thousands, of tutorials and articles about how to start a blog, how to make a million dollars in your sleep, or whatever crazy headline they’re using this week.
- I want to help you cut through the noise and make senses of the tech jargon.
- I want to help you start your first website or blog!
- I want to help you avoid shiny objects and get things done.
- I want to help you create awesome content and build a list.
- I want to help you make money online – maybe even your first dollar
I am a real person making a living working online. I make a decent income working from home doing things that I enjoy, certainly better than a boring office job or stressful retail job. My income comes from a combination of offering services, advertising on my niche websites, and affiliate marketing.
I currently have websites in small niches like…
- cross stitch and needlework
- a little subniche of gardening
- being a virtual assistant
I’ve built and sold niche affiliate sites on other topics like…
- feather hair extensions
- gadgets and electronics
- tomato gardening
Now, here’s the thing. I’m not a million dollar earner – YET. Some months are better than others, other months the budget is a little tight, as one might expect in a household with four young men and a fixer-up home that needs some repairs.
Life is messy, I’ll be completely honest with you about that and everything else here. Sometimes health struggles slow me down a bit, but I keep moving forward a little bit at a time, and the income grows a little bit at a time with each new milestone and with new opportunities.
Here at Niche Twitch I want to share you with you about creating passive income, affiliate websites, what works for me, what doesn’t work for me, who I’ve learned from, mistakes I’ve made, successes I’ve experienced, valuable information and resources I’ve found, and so much more. It is my intention to provide you with inspiration, niche website ideas, content, tools, and tutorials that will help you along your journey as we travel down this road together.
Thank you for joining me and I look forward to getting to know you,
