Forever Affiliate Review Part 8: Week 2 Coaching
Hi everyone, today I’m going to review the Week 2 coaching of Forever Affiliate, which is all about niche research and competition analysis.
Week 2 Coaching: Niche Research
The Forever Affiliate Week 2 coaching consists of:
- 2 Mastermind Webinar sessions (over 4.5 hours)
- 2 Advanced Content Videos (20 mins)
- 1 Expert Interview with Sara Young (26 mins)
- 1 Action Checklist
Mastermind Webinar Replays
Once again the webinar replays were my favorite part of the coaching. Like always, the first thing Andrew did was check everyone’s progress and find out what people were having trouble with. It turns out the majority were having trouble with competition analysis, just like I was.
Unfortunately Andrew says we’ll only get a feel for it with experience, but he spent the next 90 minutes of the webinar analyzing more niches for us and showing us how to do the analysis in different types of scenarios.
These extra examples were extremely helpful for me. There were cases similar to the ones I found when researching my niches, and the audience also asked the questions that I was wondering about.
It also turns out that the additional $79 I talked about in the previous part of my Forever Affiliate review may not be necessary after all – in this week’s webinar Andrew says checking the competition with that tool is actually the last thing he does, and it’s not necessary to do every time because you can often get enough information just by looking at the SERPs.
After that, the rest of the first webinar (and the whole of the second webinar) was open Q&A, where Forever Affiliate coaching members were allowed to ask Andrew any questions they wanted. This part of the webinars is also a great source of useful info. Some questions I had were asked, as well as some other good ones that I hadn’t thought of.
Advanced Content Videos
The first advanced video this week is about spying on your competition to find new keywords. I knew of this method before, but Andrew adds a twist to it and shows us how we can find keywords that the Google Adwords tool shows the wrong search volume for. This means that we can find profitable niches that we may have skipped over before during our research, because it looked like they didn’t meet our criteria.
In the second advanced content video, Andrew shows us 5 market areas he’s already done the research on, that have many subniches and products available with high price points. He also gives us links to affiliate programs with high commissions that we can use for these products.
Expert Interview with Sara Young
Sara Young has built an affiliate business that supports her and her family of seven children. In this interview Andrew talks to Sara about the methods she uses for finding and analyzing niches, and which kind of niches are the most profitable for her.
I got a few good nuggets of info from this interview, and the links to two very useful sites that I didn’t know about before.
This week’s checklist is a mix of things to do and things to fill in. It’s quicker to complete than the previous one, but it would take longer to complete the actions than the first one did.
End of Today’s Review
Wow, I think this is the shortest part of this Forever Affiliate review series I’ve written so far! Probably because I haven’t been feeling well lately, so I’m not as loquacious 😉
It’s not arm pain that’s bothering me right now, I’ve just been feeling dizzy and exhausted all the time. Because of this and some other issues beyond my control, I’ve fallen very behind schedule with following the Forever Affiliate course. The week 5 coaching is already available and I’m still on week 2!
I am happy that I haven’t let myself be distracted by other courses and things though, which in the past was something that usually happened. I just have to get back to doing the course regularly again, even if I have to go slower than what I had planned.
Week 1 of the coaching was especially for when stuff like this happens, so I’m going to go back and reread the exercises I did then, to help me get back on track. The important thing is to keep moving forward! 🙂
