This is a quick overview that walks you through the process of creating a website here at Wealthy Affiliate.

It takes me literally 30 Seconds to create a fully functional, Wordpress website!

Starter Members = 2 Free Websites (on .siterubix.com domain)

Premium Members = 50 Websites (25 free .siterubix.com website and 25 on your OWN Domains)

Hope you enjoy this video. Easy website creation at it's finest, not to mention all websites at Wealthy Affiliate are hosted on the most secure, reliable, and powerful managed Wordpress hosting platform in the world.

I purchased my own domain name but when I picked a Theme or template to build a website the theme or template did not show up, why is that?

I have contacted support but still could not identify or solve the problem. I have deleted that website twice after keeping it for four weeks. Now I created a new one yesterday and the same problem is showing up again.

Need help here please!

Oh that sounds so frustrating. Is it the same theme that isn't working? If different themes perhaps it's a hardware problem and your computer just needs to be checked out?

You can change your theme at any time within your WP-admin:

Appearance => Themes

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

Simply do a search there (the search is pretty good) and you will be able to find a theme/look that you are seeking.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out:

Thanks Kyle.

I guess my question should be the pictures on the template did not show up.

Thanks.

Actually it's the Image.

Thanks for caring

No, the pictures you see in a theme when you "preview" it, won't be part of your theme when you create your website. You will be adding your own imagery to your website.

Oh, I see, so how do I do that. Are there any training or tutorial on that?

Or how can I use a theme that has a picture?

I am glad to have joined WA. I have been busy this week yet I receive emails loaded with helpful learning tools of which I can understand. Thank you Kyle, and everyone who comments and shares information. I am truly grateful. The Niche video and the Creating a website video has helped me tremendously as they were areas of concern. I tend to overthink things and over analyze. The videos were short and to the point. Amazing : )

I also decided on a niche to start with and ready to begin creating the website. When creating the website from SiteRubix, does anyone know if accessing the site's content from a Android/Apple phone device, Android tablet or Ipad works just as good as accessing the site from a PC? Is there a difference in quality?

Hey David,

After listening to some members complain about using their phones to access their websites, personally, I would stick to laptop or desktop computers. You'll want a large screen so you can see what you're doing.

Hope this helps you.

I've designed a number of sites using WordPress and have them hosted elsewhere. I'm new to WA and looking forward to trying out the SiteRubix, also to see how it compares to my experience with the WP platform. I may end up moving those other sites to be hosted here.

One thing that I'll need to change as soon as I create the first site is the username and password, and that's just from a security perspective. Brute force attacks increase every week, and the first username they use is "admin". So I always create a uniques UN and then a 32-character random password. And I also use a plugin called WPS Hide Login, which masks the wp-admin feature of the back end - also for security reasons.

Aside from that, I use Smush for Image Optimization and Yoast for SEO, but they're similar to EWWW and All in One SEO. All these plugins are available on the WP repository at https://wordpress.org All in all, it looks very similar to building sites as I have previously, can't wait to get started. Peace y'all. :-)

Ok, so I just set up a site, and Kyle wasn't kidding! It was simple as could be, and the format is EXACTLY what I've seen in WP for years. Thanks! :-)

Kyle Premium
Yeah, it really is that easy. In terms of your login, we protect that on our end and people actually can't attempt to hack it with our SiteProtect platform here (that protects your site in many different ways).

We also ran test using Smush vs. EWWW and EWWW came out the clear winner. AIO SEO has been chosen over yoast simply because it is more simplistic and doesn't have a lot of the "fluff" Yoast has, but both are great plugins. ;)
Reply
SurfsideBob Premium
Thankful to have the top notch security - I've been taking care of that on my own for years. I did go ahead and install Smush and Yoast, but you know what? I'll remove them and try EWWW and All in One!

Also just had a VERY quick response from support on a ticket I submitted, very impressed. I bought another domain I'll be moving here to mimic this site. Thanks for all the help and support!

Great info. I look forward to your journey as you acclimate to WA. I too have hosted WP sites elsewhere. So far, I'm impressed with the consolidation of training and the tools to get going.

just so I get this right, as a free member any domains created under my profile are technically owned by WA? As a premium member i can use domains that i own, and purchase domains as well? What if one day i decide I want to leave WA, do i get to keep the domain and website that i own?

Hello Mary,
I tried to shorten my link, but when I opened in in a new window, it only shows siterubix and that the site is for sale,
Nothing about my site is display even though my complete site name is on the web browser, what is responsible for this?

What is your website URL? Your website is definitely not for sale, so I think you may have typed in your URL incorrectly. You can access any websites you have built here within the SiteManager:

I am having difficulty deciding on a theme. Each has its own set of headers Footers widgets gizmos and bells and whistles. Since I plan to have an interactive blog site largely informational with links to recommended products and related information do I choose from themes that already have these elements are should I just choose what is visually appealing and be able to add and subtract?
Reply
MozMary Premium
you could try out a few different themes on the free sites first before choosing one for your main site, though I think they may be limited to about 12 types

bear in mind themes on your main site can be changed quite easily, just backup your site first

I'm hearing people recommend both customizr and divi, or just something real simple like the ones suggested on the free sites - it will be about the content - see how simple Kyle tends to keep it
Reply

Thanks for the input. In the meantime I selected one that looked like a format I'd like. If it proves too difficult I will pick another from the original 12.

I'm here at this website building stage, into my 3rd day at WA. I have already absorbed in the importance of choosing a niche. But since I'm all new to this, I want to know whether I can add features to my site later on, say more drop-down menus, pictures, videos, etc. after it going "live"? And before actually completing the site, will my website go live in its incomplete avatar? Is there an option where I can "save" the finished process but keep the site on hold so that it doesn't have to go live? Or can I launch it in its unfinished stage but let everyone know that certain features/landing-pages on it are still "under construction"?

You can modify your site, including all those items you listed, at any point, now or in the future.

If you use a plugin like Coming Soon you can block visitors to your site until you're ready for them to see it. https://wordpress.org/plugins/coming-soon/
Reply
phakacha8 Premium
Yeah most people hold back their sites on the reasons under construction so that they can add features like videos, pictures or dropdowns of menu, etc later. In my case I immediately let it go live with a page about the usefulness of WA as my first bite or experience and the usefulness it had given me and attract visitors ( you can check that page on my site,July 9). Because Google will look in to the longevity of a site for its Ranking as another factor. Some articles that need modifications can be made unpublished through the SiteRubix Ultimate Writing Platform. Hope this helps.

So you mean I should just go with the flow with the niche that I have in my mind and keep on adding features as I go along? After all, it's not possible to build a complete website at one go, right?

most people on this platform do not hold back their sites, outside of WA they do, but here the focus is on SEO and as one superaffiliate blogged recently, he does let those articles out into google as soon as they are written to give them time to be found and rank - of course there is a big difference between writing good content and having a fancy site - good content being the emphasis and no shortcuts on that
Reply
phakacha8 Premium
Yeah thanks. let's go for good content.
Reply
sukumarth Premium
I think I'm getting somewhat stuck here. Since it's a proper website that we are talking about (unlike a blog), I guess the scale is certainly bigger if the goal is to attract visitors. And as rightly pointed out, nothing beats a good content and the way the contents are stacked. If content is then, the be-all and end-all in a website, it also means the one who's owning the site needs to be a good communicator, if not a good writer. Isn't that so? Does this imply that in order to be successful in online business, one also needs to write well?? Does this also mean one needs to have a blueprint of the site before one actually starts building it??

The first I want to ask is..
After these processes is my siterubix website is going to be find in Google search

As I was watching the video, certain questions came to my mind. I have been told that after building my website on the "free" platform here, I can shift the whole website on a domain that I own. But after shifting to my own domain, will I still be able to get all the support that I got in building my free website? Secondly, will my website (built on my own domain) remain in my custody and control once my premium membership ends? During the building phase itself, will I be able to enter into affiliate programs and start my business right away?
Reply
MozMary Premium
ok, looks like you confused the domain with the hosting

1.you get free sites, they can be moved to your own domain at the click of a button and into the WA hosting, which you've already paid for with your membership - notice it is high end wordpress specific managed hosting with some extra features like SSL certs, email, and speed and spam protect, and more, so to compare prices with other hosting companies you have to look at their absolute top prices

2. If you choose to use different hosting then you can move your site, that is no problem, and you can still do all the affiliate programs - they are not dependent on where you are hosted

3. premium membership doesn't 'end', it is a subscription that is either monthly or yearly, The starter membership with the two free sites doesn't end either unless you go premium - at which point you've unlocked all the training so you can't go back down - I see you are already premium.

4. During the building phase yes you can apply for affiliate programs, many of these have their own rules as to whether they let new sites apply, and some people would advise to get your site established before flooding it with affiliate links - magistudios has some training on that, and you'll see members talk about it too

You get all the support though you transferred it to your own.Because it's the same platform that gives you 'free' or 'own'. Your website is yours and nobody controls it but you. Once your premium ends, you need to activate just like we do for our school children monthly or yearly.

Focus on just ONE website and create success with that before diversifying and creating multiple niche websites.

It only takes ONE website in one niche to be very successful online. I usually find that folks that try to do too much at once (focus on several niche websites) end up in a state of mediocrity because it can be overwhelming and you don't really ever become the expert in just one niche.

It is the experts (specialists) that create long term, successful businesses in any niche.

I want to have a web page with the niche - regaining your mobility and strength with the Total Gym. History, I have used the total gym for over a year. Prior to using the total gym I was having difficulty standing up from a seated position and I continually had pain in my legs and my arms. Since using the Total Gym I am able to easily stand up from a seated position and leg and arm (from bursitis). The pain eventually returns, if I do not maintain my workout regime. Total Gym has an Affiliate program and Amazon also has Total Gym equipment and accessories. Confused, how would I create the Website?

You could always call it "totalstrengthandmobility" or something like this?

There are literally hundreds of products you could promote if not thousands and millions within the fitness niche.

Strength and mobility could even be one "sub-section" of a total lifestyle/fitness blog sort of thing.

Thank you so much Mikepawlik. Your response is really helpful. I like "totalstrengthandmobility".

So I use totalstrengthandmobility as the domain name and then use what for the Website. I just researched my last name Oliva, and found it means "peace" in Greek. What do you think of a website name of She Knows Peace.

I'm sorry for just responding back. I was wondering why I had not received any responses. I found out today where to go for everyone's wonderful responses. All of you are great I am blessed to have signed up here.

Hi Mary,

In my opinion, you could literally call your website anything you like but it might not be obvious right away what your website is about if you call it She Knows Peace. Once you drove traffic there and people started knowing who you are you could get away with that but something that would let readers know what your website is about before they visit it would be beneficial in my opinion.

If you would like any other help feel free to reach out! I am fairly new at this but I am definitely up for helping out whenever I can. Have a wonderful day! :)

Excellent video and excellent web management platform.

I have a question though. As a starter I will work on one site only to begin with and it will be a free domain on the SiteRubix platform. In other words my site will be on a subdomain. Being my first website I do not expect it to be my best work of all times, it will be mediocre at the very best.

I still would like to know, who will own the content of the website I will build on the free domain? I know it will most probably be a pile of rubbish. Will it be my rubbish?

Thanks in advance x

I have am very new too all of this and even through I have never had my own web sight before, the video here makes it look very easy to do and I can not wait to get started. But I do have a question? I very much want to become a premium member, unfortunately a little while ago my bank account was hack and everything I had in it was taken and my account was close. I literally don't have the funds right now to purchase the premium package at this moment. In fact I am still in the process of still trying to find a new bank phase. I was just wondering can I will I have access to the first month discount after the time runs out? And if so for how long? But if not then will I still be able to become a premium member once I get my finances back on track?

Hello and welcome. I am not sure about the discount being extended past your 7 days but u can become a premium member at anytime just by paying the monthly fee. U can also stay a free member for as long as u want. Once your 7 days are up u can still use the search bar above for more training and help, just type in the words u are looking for and it will show what is available to u. So once your finances are on track u can become a premium member and still work on your website in the mean time.

I have a few questions. First, I absolutely love WA now that I understand it and can roam around with jumping out a window. I am a retired Federal employee. I get paid quite well but only once a month - on the first of the month. Therefore, on August 1st, I will be able to pay for the premium membership for the year. Until then I will play with creating two free websites to be comfortable with them. I do have a domain name, ANJELLISAJEWELRY.COM on Shopify that never got formalized to my satisfaction in a website. I would like to transfer this domain to WA and create a nice website here to sell jewelry. I have a photographer coming here on August 1st to photograph 20 sterling silver gemstone rings I imported from China to add to the website. I will also notify Spotify that I am moving it. Then I can send emails, banners, etd from here.

If you have any problems with anything I have said or if you have any suggestions, please let me know. I really appreciate your advice.

You can use the above process to create a new website:

1) Using a domain you purchase here (must be Premium member)

2) Using a domain name from another registrar (must be Premium member)

3) Using a free subdomain (starter members and premium members can do this)

OMG!! I'm already overwhelmed after watching the video, I am hoping I can get 1 website up...but 50!! I tend to quit things early, however...I committed myself to not giving up and working my way through these lessons and giving it 110%!

Don't be overwhelmed by the big 50 number. 1 or 2 websites can be a very profitable undertaking :) You don't have to ever build 50! (whew!)

Your site doesn't "upgrade" with premium or anything like that. What you do get with premium is the option to purchase your own domain and here at WA they are really, really cheap ($13.99-$15.99/year), but that of course is a separate, but small, cost.

If you've started with building your free site and then purchase a domain later you don't have to build it all over again. You can move it over with the click of a button so that part's easy :)

Hi everyone!
I'm just setting up my website, and with all the 2500 site Theme options (Premium account), it's a bit exciting, and overwhelming..

I have a few site ideas..for blogging, selling products and training courses.

Is there a WA resource / info that helps with the decision-making process of what Theme to choose?

And, once I choose a theme, and don't like it, can I change it down the road with no implications to my site pages/info?

What is the difference between a subdomain like .siterubix.com and an owned domain?

How much would it be to make your own domain?

Also how do visitors or the audience you are trying to reach react to a subdomain site as opposed to a owned domain site? I know having a subdomain can make you website name longer, maybe a little harder to remember when you go to search it.

I plan to get comfortable with marketing and promoting products first but eventually down the road I would like to create my own products to sell on my website for anyone to buy. How does that work?

Any feedback would be awesome!

The domain within the Starter membership are created on the .siterubix.com domain, you are in full control of the content, but you don't own the actual domain.

When you are ready, you can move these sites over to your own domains with a click of a button here at WA using the MOVE feature.

We also have a SiteDomains (domain registration platform) here at WA that simplifies the process. It is a breeze, it handles everything properly for SEO, and these are features included within the Premium membership.

Hope this clarifies for you Angelee.

You have a bunch of family coming over ( traffic)

Are they going to remember and enjoy visiting at your own home ( domain)?

Or at a home where you have roommates ( siterubix.com)?

I would prefer the home rather than the other .

Hey Ange, couldn't find a link as such, but there are advantages to owning your own domain. This is known as a 'top level domain (TLD).

Basically, better rankings in Google and better authority in your niche. It is always better to own your own domain, but a free subdomain is cool to get started or 'test the waters' so to speak.

Cheers

If I am a current premium member and am about to create my first website, but it looks like in the future I might have to downgrade to the free membership (budget constraints), what will happen to any themes etc I choose under the premium options? Would it be wiser to choose from the free options first, and wait until I can consistently stick with the premium membership/all its options?

Unfortunately, u cannot downgrade back to a free member once u are premium. If u stop being premium then u will have 30 days to move your site to another hosting platform.

Kyle Premium
You cannot downgrade to Starter, but you will be able to resubscribe to your Premium account at any time and reconnect your membership (when you can make it back). ;)

We also host your website for 30 days beyond the cut off date, which gives you time to still work on it or move it to another host in the meantime.

Hope this clarifies for you Kristine!

Wow, that looks like a totally cool way to build a website, and easy!
I am a little worried though as I'm not an expert on my niche, which is 3D Printing/Printers, and I'm not great at writing either which could be my down fall. So when it comes to content on my webpage to I have to write heaps of copy? That's the bit I don't understand, why would people come to my website and not go directly to say Amazon?

I just finished watching Create a Website and man do I have a lot questions. I want to promote a company selling discount golf clubs is there a theme for that, and how do I put on my web site things like: ads, links, naked links, descriptions, coupons. They use Linkconnector, how can I use them to add all this to the web site?

First of all what level of the training are you on?
If you have finished Course 1 You will need to upgrade to Premium before gaining access to the rest of the training. If you still have the $19 option I suggest you do it as the training that comes is easily worth ten times that.

Hey y'all I'm new here and I'm very excited to get started I'm stuck on this question. If your not a great writer how do you come up with good wording on your website and whats an easy way to get your website views so I can start selling products online? I appreciate all help thank you!

I tried to write for many years...I'm an administrator and former facilitator/trainer. I'll tell you what my mentor told me: write how you talk to people (not speak--talk). If you need to clean it up, you can do that in a few minutes before posting. How do you know what to write? Ask questions of your subject. If you are not a subject-matter expert, become one, it will make things easier when writing about your subject. You become a subject-matter expert by reading and doing--learn as you go and put it into action. Oh, it doesn't happen tomorrow--it happens over time. One day you won't know that you didn't know what you know. ;-) I wish you the best.

I have some questions about websites:

1. It seems better to own a domain (which is possible with a Premium account) than to use a free domain (siterubix in this case), why?

2. I already asked a similar question at the end of lesson 1 or 2 (which I got some kind replies for), but I want to be sure: is it easy (as it seems better, as mentionned in the first question) to transfer an entire website from a free domain (siterubix) to another one we would then own?

I am asking these question because I am really interested and I am looking forward to start a website, but I think I will start and continue with my Starter account for a while (several weeks at least). I could totally be intersted in a Premium account, later, if it goes well, in regard to the advantages it can provide to a more expanded business.

Thank you in advance for your reply.

P.S. I really am a newbie as a website creator, but I can't wait to dive into it and will already start one, in any case, to try and learn :)

The reason many move over to a paid domain is because of the perception of authority when a site is on a paid domain. When your traffic starts to build and your target audience has the chance to choose between your post and another post next to it on a google search, the majority of the time they feel the authority site is the one where the owner has a vested interest in his website and owns his own domain. There's nothing physically better about the domain, it's just a perception type of thing. If you found a site about training kittens to play the drums so they can join a punk rock band as a guise while they infiltrate another country's government as spies you'd probably pick http://undercoverpunkrockkittendrummerspies.org over http://undercoverpunkrockkittendrummerspies.siterubix.com. Google also sees it as a positive sign of authority as well :)

But by all means feel free to build your site on the siterubix platform for now and whenever you're ready you can move it over to your own domain. They're super cheap at just barely over $1/month and moving your content from siterubix to a paid domain is very easy when you're ready. It's done with one click. As far as staying free for weeks, you can stay free as long as you like, but I don't think it would take you several weeks to finish course 1 of the training. I'm thinking you'll be ready to get on with the rest of the training much earlier than that and go premium. At $19 it's hard to beat :) good luck!

Reply
ericcantu Premium
While we can't embed these videos directly into our websites, the easiest way to do it is the same way Kyle does in his tutorials.

1. Take a screenshot of the video player above
2. Copy your affiliate link from the white "affiliate" tab above the player
3. Place the screenshot image into your post
4. Make the screenshot image a link using the affiliate link you copied in step two.

This will make it so it'll appear you have an embedded video in your post and when they click on it they'll be taken right here. The great thing is that if they decide to click on anything once here they'll be prompted to create a free account and if and when they do that you'd earn a referral commission.

In checking this out and with no experience in the technology world. I went and started building a website for tree and it asked for a domain name to put down , I did not understand so I used my email . Then I got an email from you Kyle that what the message said it came from saying to watch a video and that is when I realize I have made a mistake and need more incentive for me to be interested in learning it . But in building a website and then what when will I see any traffic or profit in doing this.

Building a website is the first step and by no means do you need to be technically savvy to be very successful online. :)I have spent some time breaking down the process in the most simplistic way possible. Success online is at the core a 4 step process and I have broken them down within this video: Broken, down, the process looks like this:

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

If you have any further questions let me know Joy. :)

All the content is so easy to understand in your videos. I've never had any experience with any aphiliate marketing or SEO stuff and I am picking this up really quickly. Quick question though, any particular reason you and Carson (or wealthy affiliate) chose siterubix to be your websites hoster, compared to other ones such as wix or godaddy?
Reply

Thats great you are catching on and moving through the training. When i was new here i had no knowledge of any of this stuff, and now i have learned so much... site rubix is just a free site you can have as part of being a member. I would still recommend you buying your own domain and hosting it here... Good luck with your site development!!!

Is there a way I can put up this video without and ensure people sign up through me if some decide to sign up this video as it obviously is not my affiliate link? Hope that's clear iin it''s garbled way lol.

If I understand u correctly u want to add this video to your website and if someone clicks on it and joins WA u want the credit, correct? Then all u need to do is click the "Affiliate" button at the top of the post on the right-hand side. In there is a link code that will have your personal affiliate ID embedded in it all ready for u. Then just take a screenshot of the video, place it on your page and create a link for it using the link code u get from the "Affiliate" button. Then if someone joins WA through the video u will get the credit.

If I have misunderstood u I do apologize.

I just signed up today, and have already reached Lesson 4. I can honestly say that, as a previously employed tech support specialist and website builder, this seems like an incredibly intuitive platform. I'm excited to see that someone has taken the initiative to put together a system that does the hard building, and allows you to concentrate on the business aspects of formulating and implementation instead. Sounds like a winning solution thus far. Haven't built my first website yet, but definitely looking forward to it.

I was initially going to wait for the first 6 days to of the initial FREE period to end before deciding whether or not to sign up for the Premium Plan, but at this rate, it might be TODAY!

So if I purchased my domain I can use it here even as a Starter Member? I have purchased a few domains but not done anything with them and would like to use them here. And can I purchase and use domains on WA even after the 25 of my own included with the Premium Membership?
Reply
Dmorrow Premium
As a starter member you can have 2 siterubix sites hosted here. You would have to go premium to have your own domains hosted here, In the meantime, you can use what you are learning through the starter membership to apply to your domains. Hope that helps clear it up for you.

Ques 1: All you need to do is to point them to WA from your web host. If you are using GoDaddy, they have a very easy to follow video (as do most web host service providers). If you are still unsure about the process, just reach out to your web host for the instructions. It's a simple process, you just need to know where to look on their site. :0)
Ques 2: Not 100% sure on this one. That said... 25 websites is a lot. I wouldn't suggest going in on more than 1 (2 absolute max) for starting out. Writing content for 1 site can be a full time job. To do it right, you need to research and more research. If you are just selling via product reviews, then I can see multiple websites for various niches, however 25 niches is kind of a lot. Once you start closing in on 25 successful websites, let's revisit this question. To run 25 successful websites.. actually to run 3+ successful websites requires a team.

Thanks, Kyle, for the video walk-through. It looks basically simple to do--even if the naming my site thing will take a bit of time--and it should take me far less time than it took to build a site @ wix back in 2011. That took forever! And nothing ever happened from it. Very sad, that. I hope this turns out much better!

My suggestion would be to pick a specific area in your field and target that with your website. A niche is usually a targeted area of expertise that targets a specific audience, like "health and healing for those over 50", or "Weight loss for women after pregnancy" or something like that. The point being is that it targets a certain audience. Hope this helps u some.

I set up my website with the siterubix domain and am putting content on it, but want to change the domain as soon as I go premium. Would I be able to easily transfer my site and all the information over to my purchased domain when I go premium? Or would I need to create a new site, copy/paste everything and wait for Google to index my new site?

You'll be able to transfer your siterubix to a premium domain no problem. You shouldn't have to copy/paste anything. It basically just redirects your siterubix site to your .com domain.

Yeah, we actually have a "Move" feature that you will see right within the SiteManager.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

You can move any domain to any domain hosted here at WA. For example, if you wanted to move your Siterubix website to a domain that you have purchased, then it is a very simple process.

The "Move" feature also handles for all proper redirects and SEO, it will transfer your site in its entirety and it is as simple as a few clicks. See attached screenshot for what I am referring to here.

I want to promote a hot product. Obviously, I need to include the product title when naming my domain/website, right? How to know in advance if they have an affiliate program?

Also, make a contract with them, Arrange commissions,Etc?

I would not target one product and name your domain after that. that is an old school tactic which is not good anymore, target the niche and review the product as a part of your content within it. In short, just follow the training :)
Reply
jmartens777 Premium
Look up the company website. A lot of websites will have a link to their affiliate program hidden towards the bottom of their webpage.

If you can't find their affiliate program, then contact the website owner or their support team, and they should let you know. Most affiliate programs already have a commission % set-up , so you shouldn't have to negotiate.

If they have an affiliate program, look to see if they have an affiliate "tools" or "promo" page.

Make sure you are signed up as an affiliate before you start promoting their product or program, or you will not make any commissions.

They often will have banners with html code, which you can then copy and past into your side bar widget, or wherever you want on your webpage, with your affiliate link embedded in it. Make sure your affiliate link is in the html code so you get credit for it.

It usually looks fairly similar to what you see in the demo, but all websites start outas a "blank shell" and then as you add content to it you are going to see the overall design of your website take shape.
