This is a great business opportunity. Do you think I could do well marketing other spiritual item like incense, crystals, etc…?

    Hi Larry and Kathy,

    very interesting and unique post! I loved how you used essential oils as an example for a niche. It truly feels like there’s potential for such niches to succeed online.

    On the other hand, as a Wealthy Affiliate member, I can’t emphasize enough that it is absolutely possible to become an affiliate marketer AND earn money. But many seem to chase after the fast cash which I feel should never be the way to go.

    Instead, I feel like earning money online is just as tough as making money in real life. Wealthy Affiliate is just a path that teaches and helps us get there.

    In a nutshell, great post! I enjoyed reading it =]

      Hi Rebecca,

      We couldn’t agree with you more! Earning money online is just as tough as making money offline. It takes work and determination. If a person is looking for a way to earn quick cash, affiliate marketing is not the way to go. However, if someone is looking to find an honest way to earn money online, affiliate marketing is the best. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit our site.

    Howdy Larry and Kathy,

    I believe health is the main reason why there is a huge market, meaning there is a huge opportunity for starters who has no idea which is the best niche. It’s great for the both of you helping out others who want to start their business with internet as the core medium. Also with tips such as keyword searching and the benefits on keeping physical products logistically.

    I have been buying products from my Direct Sales company who sell lots of everyday products like sink toilet and house cleaners aimed at people who don’t want harsh chemicals in their house . They recently launched a range of essential oils with much hurrah, which I didn’t understand not being an essential oil user. Thanks to your article I now see the possibilities. All the best Colin
