New On-line ‘Side Income’ For Tradies a Growing Trend in the Digital Age

Hawthorne California - a former carpenter decides to put down his tools and join the masses moving from the workshop to the home office.

Hawthorne, United States - January 18, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Ash Davies is a carpenter who has recently discovered the benefits of sharing his knowledge of tools, woodworking and carpentry in online spaces.

He is part of a rising trend of people who are looking for new ways in which to capitalise on their existing skills while reaping the benefit of passive income on the side.

His website, reviews products – mostly power tools, that are needed in woodworking projects and general DIY carpentry.

‘I wanted to provide an authentic voice to the products I myself use and the ones my dad uses too.” Ash said.

Ash said he stumbled across the idea when researching a product he wanted to buy for his own woodworking project. It prompted him to follow suit and start his own niche site so he could share his knowledge and experience online.

Ash went on to say, “One day I was looking for some advice on a new miter saw I wanted to buy, and came across a bunch of ‘review sites’ that discussed the tool I was after. It made me realise that I too have a wealth of knowledge on wood cutting tools (and other tools and equipment) and perhaps my experience and expertise can help someone else.”

As a veteran of the industry and a woodworking enthusiast, Ash knows his trade well but is new to website design and management.

“I didn’t have the slightest clue how I was going to go about launching my own site, but had some friends who had done something similar. They helped to point me in the right direction” He said.

Simply put, niche sites are websites structured around a particular subject (such as a hobby or interest) and are generally targeted to a specific audience. The site serves to address popular ideas and interests within the niche including reviews of products related to the niche.

Usually niche sites will contain affiliate links and or advertisements of some sort (pay per click or products or both) with readers enticed to visit another website in an attempt to sell the reader a product or service.

Gary Wilcott, a niche site entrepreneur expressed, “essentially niche sites are a form of marketing that provides useful content for the users and low set up costs for the owner. If built correctly, they can be quite profitable too – from just some extra income to help pay monthly bills to generous amounts that can replace a full-time job or salary.”

Ash indicated that he “enjoys writing on anything relating to woodworking” and intends to make his site “valuable to those who visit it.” He further added, “for this reason, not all of my articles contain affiliate links. I don’t want the site to be too spammy. If I can earn a few dollars on the side, well that’s just a bonus. Ill probably just buy a beer or two with it!” He said.

A specialist in Search Engine Optimisation, Gary revealed that niche sites “require a lot of time and effort with the most successful ones offering original and useful content from those passionate about their subject matter.”

Although only new to niche site creation, Ash has a target audience in mind and a vision for his site. He disclosed, “my aim is to attract visitors who are after some know how and to help other budding and senior craftsman with their projects and DIY needs.”

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Feb 27, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Feb 27, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Feb 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs.
