Hello, Kyle,
I just got my computer back today and It sure is nice to be back. It's defiantly time
to move forward and not dare look back. I updated my profile and feeling much better now and I have a little more confidence in myself.
This video was straight to the point and you did a very good job exsplaining It
In great detail and very understandable. Thank you, Kyle.
I hope that you have a very wonderful day, my friend.

Now that I watched the video about building a website, I have some questions and really I need some 1-2-3 (in Layman's terms) answers, because I am "NOT" fluid at "Computer Tech" Langues.
So here is my Question(s), I have a Website and a Landing Page for my eCommerce affiliate Business, how/where do I put either or both?
Reply

Fred, I think a little more clarification is needed. What do you mean by, "how/where do I put either or both?" The obvious answer would be that you put it on the web via a webhost, such as here at WA, but I suspect that you already know that, so where are you lost?

Did you design your site here?
Is it in WordPress?
Is it a siterubix subdomain or a dot com that you purchased elsewhere?

You are going to be building a website here at WA in any niche. If you have any existing website, you certainly can use that was the training here, or you can follow along through our training and create a brand new one using our state of the art website builder and hosting platform.

I purchased the website from WA and I upgraded to premium, but then I was taken away from all the steps to finish building my site and I dont know how to get back there :) when I start over im asked to point the website i own to WA. Well WA has my domain, so im not sure what to do. Sorry, im very new at this

Are you referring to this domain? I see this within your account.

I must say that the video made things a lot clearer for me. I have never really been involved in building websites before but this video educated me quite a bit. Thank you for that. At the moment I don’t have any questions, but I may have once I get started on building my website.

The process of a building a website here at WA is very straightforward. It literally takes 30 seconds, something that took me over 30 days when I started out. That shows just how much technology has progress in the last decade. :)

If you ever need a hand with any aspect of your website do let us know. :)

I am SOOO confused!! I feel like I'm trying to bat my way out of a paper bag!! I don't understand what I'm supposed to be putting on my webpage. People keep saying build content towards a landing page but I do not know what that means. Where can I find examples? I feel like I'm going to have a melt down. Was hoping to get this webpage finished today since I work the rest of the week long hours but I can't comprehend general instructions. I need specific details so I can see exactly how number 1 is put together and then leads to number 2 and exactly what these look like. HELP!!

Have you written your about me page yet?
Which lesson are you having trouble with?
Reply

I'm at the SEO page so I haven't written my about me page yet. I'm not sure what I want to use the page for in terms of my niche. I just want to sell items that have to do with my niche but it's not like I can put a page together with all kinds of links to products having to do with my niche is it? For instance, I'm the kind of person who when I make a phone call, don't like to entertain with a bunch of chit chat....just want to get to the purpose of the call so it seems like the webpage is the chit chat making people feel comfortable before diving deeper into the conversation and I'm just wanting to get to the point. I don't know how to develop content to entertain them before getting them to click on my links and make money. Do I have a wrong concept of this?

It seems that at this stage, you may be trying to overthink things and are overwhelming yourself in the process.

You are at the point where you are starting to lay the foundation for your site so that you will be ready to start writing content in future lessons.

In the next lesson, you will be writing your about me post where you will briefly be writing a little something about yourself, why you chose the niche and what you hope to accomplish with the site and then your privacy policy which is just a standard page that you will be modifying with your site info, real easy.

Remember that as you move forward, you aren't really going to be selling anything.
You will instead be writing informative and helpful content and probably be doing product reviews, giving your opinions and making recommendations then referring them to the site that will do the actual selling.

With all of that said, just follow the training step by step and complete each task as you come to it and in time you will start to see the bigger picture.

The training was designed that way to help you build your business the right way without the need for being overwhelmed and, when you have questions along the way, someone here will help you out

This is all going to become much more clear as you move through the training. The content that you will be building on your website will be relevant to the niche you choose and any given niche can have 10,000's of different topics that you could potentially discuss.

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 that targets relevant keywords
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 Karren. :)

Hey Karren, it did make me smile when i read your trouble - i know i'm not supposed to but i had to.
I am an engineer,but trying my hand at affiliate marketing, so from this i am use to being able to come up with a solution to problems.
It is frustrating when people will not tell you, youput this piece before this piece and that will do this, but - you knew that was coming- the internet and peoples behaviour does not work like that - if it did the big guys would have picked up on it and exploited it - and they probably have.
I am more used to writing manuals where i put in
1.0 introduction .....
1.1 the y machine is a machine which does this ......
You will need to learn how to type like you chat with people, start recording what you ay with friends - ask them first- and then type it out and see how it feels - it does take time toget used to and youmight get frustrated with your typing speed - i still am and are looking into speech to text software to speed me up - as kyle did when he broke his hand.
Hopefully you can see my style has changed a little and can almost hear a conversation going on - albeit a one sided one.
But yes it is all about building relationships online to problem solve and not about just selling.
It will take time but stick at it and as long as you enjoy it, it becomes fun. it can be really frustrating at times, when you break your site for no reason!!!
You learn a lot - and there is a lot to learn so don't expect ot pick it all up in a weekend.
take your time and learn the fundamentals well and you can then go into any niche and learn about it, setting up a site and solving a problem which will reap its rewards .
just remember it is all about them - they don't give a stuff about you, they want a solution to their problem and hope your page has it - nope - ok click away - try somewhere else.It is as instant as that as people expect everything now.
On the other side you are waiting weeks for google to recognise that you have produced quality content and solved a massive problem and deserve to be on page one! so learn patience and persistance.youwill need both.
I hope youhave fun with it

Ok, so that is a whole different perspective on this than I thought. If I'm not an expert on anything specifically, then I'm not sure how to move forward. I'm stuck on the home title and home page description cause I don't know how to use my page now.
Reply
Dalkren1 Premium
Thank you Phil. I'm not offended that it made you smile. I tend to think more analytical and I appreciate how you described the "not all about you, it's about them needing a solution to a problem etc.". I enjoy solving problems but I guess I didn't think it's something that you design a webpage around unless it's a problem a lot of people are having. This is definately a road block for me as I don't know how to proceed. I wanted to sell gardening items because I love gardening but I can't say I can solve anyone's gardening issues....usually it's me looking for advice on it...lol. I probably should take a break from trying to do more on this today as it's taken my entire day so far and I haven't been able to get this very far along cause I just don't know how I'm able to help someone else. I just thought I would be learning how to market things for businesses and such.

You will become an expert in time as you research and write about your niche so, in essence, you are setting yourself up to be a future expert.

Your home title can be the name of your site

The description can be something like "name of site" is a site dedicated to being the ultimate resource for "whatever your niche is"

Of course, that is a simplistic example and you would embellish a bit beyond that

Below is a list of sample descriptions that may be much better than what I tried to do off the top of my head lol

ok so you want to promote gardening equipment, why did you buy them? what problem did they solve for you
If they solved it for you, they will solve it for others, so write about it. But put it in a way that they have the problem and this will solve it for you.
It doesn't matter that you are not an 'expert' as long as you are prepared to learn about it. you can stay one step ahead of newbies who are reading little snippets of what you are writing and they increase their knowledge through you.
don't let this be a road block , seroiusly it is not.
plan out what you want to sell and find what problems they will solve then find the people with the problems and you are there!! it's as easy as that - if you find it easy then come back and teach me how to do it!! lol
it might be worth using something like xmind as a mind map as youcan play with it as much as you want to - i will be doing an article about thi v soon on my blog.
You are learning how to market to consumers rather than businesses, the techniques are similar but why would youmarket gardening items to businesses?
don't give up and don't do too much at once there is too much to take in at the start, let it sink in.
As you are a free member remember where you clicked through from and go back there and hassle them for inf - you will lose your writing rights after a week but you can still continue onwards with your free sites.
try and look around for other member sites and grab their addresses as well - or facebook
is it worth it - well if you don't have to ba a slave to the alarm clock and work when you want to, does that sound attractive? to get to that stage is a long haul and hard work - sorry - there are no push button sytems which give you free money - they will either take time or money - or both!.
this one takes time, but is a skill you can use for the rest of your life and pass onto the children if they will listen.
sorry it's getting long again, but as i said stick with it- let it sink in. You can do this and create a blogwhich you are proud of and people visit. if you are successful in the garden you are better than some people and the ideas and information passed onto you can all be put onto your blog- youmay even have guest bloggers in the making.
so look at what you are going to promote and see a common thread and youcan do this, it will not be done in a week. but being here is a start - get a site setup and get writing as soon as poss. only practice will get you better - that#s good english!
the main thing is to have fun and take breaks

So, wasn’t wanting to sell equipment but smaller stuff and not sell to businesses but for businesses. I guess I’m taken back to the example of the football Snack helmet example in our beginning training videos and this is where I thought I could find a niche of something I liked and promote products that were in my niche. Like what did the football snack helmet solve for someone? It was a unique item being featured but how do you build a webpage to promote just 1 item like that? I would think you would promote several items on a page to make better use of time and maximize the chances of multiple sales. I guess I’m wanting to have a page like the football snack helmet page we were shown but don’t know how to make that happen. Do you know what I’m referring to?
Reply
feigner Premium
yeah i know the football snack helmets micro niche site - looks good doesn't it
Jay has 15 plus years of internet marketing behind him and he makes it look so easy.
is there opportunities like that now - yes but you will have to go through about 50 sites before you find it - i am after one of those - set it up in a weekend and leave it making me money.
ah the thought of it. sorry dreaming, no seriously they are available and will make a little money but you need to know what goes on behind the scenes with backlinking strategies - i haven't looked at it yet but will . also with googles latest update these types of sites are getting harder to get ranked - google is now after quality content for the visitor and a lot of it, so thin sites are not ranking nor are sites with a lot of affiliate links on each page.
You can try it and see what happens.
Personally i would follow the training and see where it gets you.
If you find a get rich quick way then market it - everyone wants it

just had a quick look and there are over 100 follow backlinks - a lot from here and other high authority sites - s owhat you see as the face is only a small part of setting one of these sites up - sorry to burst any bubbles you have - if it was that easy everyone would have 5 or 6 of these and retire

Perhaps this will help you a bit. For your about me, just let people know who you are and why you are creating your site.

Be honest and just be yourself.

Sometimes it helps to pretend you are talking to your best friend about what you are doing.

There is a template for your about me page in the Site content area. You get to this by clicking on the SiteRubix menu item and scrolling down to click on Site Content. Then pick Templates at the top of the page.

I am ready to create my first website, however before doing so I had a couple of questions, 1.As a Premium member,since I have access to 'Sitespeed' it is best to have it turned on, am I right? 2. I can change the sub-domain name I use now to a domain name I would like to finally use,lately. Right?

Correct on 1 and 2. I take it you are going to buy a new domain.

1. Yes, turn on "sitespeed" so it will optimize the speed of your website.
2. Are you trying to transfer your " siterubix.com" to the regular domain name you purchased? If so, this training may help you.

Hi everybody. Need some feedback. I have decided to promote the Wealthy Affiliate Program for my niche. I have the domaine name http://www.wealthyaffiliatesonline.com parked at Go-daddy.

Would this be an advantage to use it???? I have 12 other domains parked at Go-daddy but this one seemed the most likely. What are your thoughts?????

I like it. It is right to the point of what you are wanting to do. If you build it out with excellent content, good keywords and do all the right SEO and social media things you should do well. Good Luck.

It comes down to whether or not Kyle & Carson would allow this. Generally speaking, it's never a good idea to build a website on a domain name containing someone else's trademark. They can take ownership of the site any time they want.

Also, make sure to read the article I sent you in your WA Bonuses about going the WA Bootcamp route vs. OEC.

amexrn Premium
I think the best thing to do first is to transfer your domain to Siterubix. Here's a link to it.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/domains/transfer
Reply
Kyle Premium
I wouldn't recommend using Wealthy Affiliate, the trademark, within your own domain. It isn't because we are particularly stringent on this, rather it is because it can present two immediate issues with your business moving forward.

(1) You cannot brand yourself because you have someone else's trademark in your domain name.

(2) It immediately makes you look biased, so if you are planning on promoting WA it can make this much more difficult.

When you choose a domain, you are going to want to choose something that is "brandable" versus something that has keywords within it. The reason this is the case is because as you build out your website, you can target as many keywords as you like within the content (that is how you will rank).

I have created a discussion here outlining the process and what to look for when choosing a domain name: This should help you out here and if you ever want to run any domains by me, simply let me know and I will give you some feedback.

JWallo1 Premium
I already own a domain name with Go-Daddy. I understand that I can use this already owned domain name when I become a Premium member.

Q: Can I sync the free domain here at WA with Go-Daddy later?

My concern is that my Go-Daddy already reflects my niche and I do not desire to have more than one domain name for it. I don't want to confuse the traffic.
Reply
chrisbailey Premium
Welcome to WA.

Yes, if you already have a site hosted at GoDaddy, you can import the content and use WA for the hosting if you choose when you take advantage of the Premium membership.

If you just own the domain name and haven't already started building your site, you can build your site here.
Reply
Kyle Premium
And eventually you definitely want to use the hosting here over GoDaddy, it is far more advanced.

The Managed Wordpress hosting you have access to here at WA is matched by very few hosts in the industry in terms of quality, security, speed, and support. It definitely is not a budget host like the other shared hosting companies out there. The hosting you get here at WA is comparable to $250 per MONTH hosting packages.

You can learn more about it here:

http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/hosting/

You can host up to 25 of your own domains and 25 free .siterubix.com websites on your Premium hosting platform here at WA.

Hi ShaySharone,
Health is such a big topic for adults in that age group. That topic should draw a big following. The hard question is probably what area in health? What are they talking about on Twitter? What pictures are they posting or commenting about in Pinterest? What kinds of exercises are they enjoing? What is the makeup craze?
I will Follow you, if you Follow me, I can follow your success.

There are literally 1,000's of different directions that you can head within the health niche. Are you talk about shin splints, lower back pain, or congenital heart disease, or...etc.

Lots of different directions you can head and you can surely narrow things down a little bit here.

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

I have decided on my niche but would also like to feature more general stuff on the site. My area of interest is combat sports (MMA, Boxing, Thai Boxing, BJJ) and my niche is in the hygiene aspect of combat sports. Can I introduce general content about the world of combat sports or does the site have to remain solely on the topic of hygiene?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, you could definitely head in that area if you wanted. You could also choose ONE of these combat sports, and then hygiene could simply be topics that you talk about within that.

It states on the lesson 4 page the following.

The SiteBuilder platform here at WA is the most simplistic, yet advanced in the industry. It is going to less than 30 seconds to get a fully operational, profit ready Wordpress website up and running online.
So clarerubel don't feel silly, regardless of continuing to learn how to add content the above statement is a little misleading as the site is not fully operational and profit ready until such time content is added.

Another very informative video. As I was watching questions popped into my head but then it was as though my mind was being read because my questions got answered.

Building a website is so easy now - when I first started dabbling with websites many years ago we had to learn to code html.

With this system a cave man who has just crawled out of the jungle and never seen a computer could build a website.

Yeah learning how to code it is not fun (and no longer needed). We always say that if we build something that are grandparents couldn't use, then we need to rethink it as that is the "design" that should be implemented within anything these days.

Hey guys, hope you're all having a wonderful day! So, I just went throught the Building your own niche website lesson and I need to pick out a theme. I was wondering if some of you have experience with tutoring websites and which theme(s) would be most suitable for this? Would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks in advance guys, you all rock! I'm getting more and more excited :)
Reply
TDBauer Premium
I would strongly suggest making a list of things you know a lot about, such as a hobby. When writing blogs on a website you own it is MUCH easier to write about something you know a lot about. If you pick a theme you know little about, you are going to spend a lot of time researching and that slows down the website building process.

The more content (posts) you have, the better chance you will have to make money. If you know a lot about your theme, it will easier to write about it, and you will be able to add more content on a routine basis.

So I would make a list of ten things you know a lot about, are passionate about and can include hobbies. Then research the product or products that are related to those things you wrote down on your list. See if there is product you write reviews about related to those interests you have... and go from there.

Many people fail because they start out trying to choose a niche they think will make them money, but one they know little about. They struggle and give up. Picking something you love and know a lot about for your first website or two will give you a much better chance at success.

Thank you for your reply, much appreciated! But I was actually referring to a wordpress theme and not the niche because I already know my niche ;)!

Your post provides great advice for a beginner like me. I was having some difficulty picking from several possible niche choices, but now I feel more comfortable making a choice. Thank you very much for your advice.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Choose a theme that is simple, ideally with a white background and black text (as this is the most readable).

I tend to avoid themes with too many bells and whistles as the focus of your website will be your content and your content will make your website look visually appealing to your audience.

So choose something simple, yet elegant and if you ever need to change down the road, you can easily do so within Appearance => Themes.

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

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

Can you please recommend a few of the theme titles that you like to use?

Once someone becomes a premium member, will the websites published as a starter member be upgraded with all of the premium tools? Also, will companies such as Amazon approve a starter website into their affiliate program, or do we need to become a premium member and get our own domain name first?
Reply
JBond1 Premium
Hi, yes when you become a premium member you get all the tools you need and more!

Most affiliate programs require you to have your own domain. You can promote WA via a free website but to have a really successful business in the future you're going to need to be a premium member and your own domains, in my opinion.

This is a great question. I was just on a siterubix.com site today, and it had links going to amazon to purchase the products being promoted. I accessed the site from someones profile, so I honestly don't know if it was ranked with google, or how well it did rank.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, they can approve starter but most would prefer a site with a solid base of content and that you have residing on your own domain.

It is very easy to move your Starter websites over to your own domain within Premium, literally a click of the button and everything is taken care of for you. ;)

I have just gone through the process of creating my very first website!! I am very excited to add content to this site! All of the videos I have watched this far have been amazing! I am VERY new to this entire process, and was very scared at the idea of trying this. I honestly thought it would be weeks before I had a niche, let alone a site to work on. Its been less than 24 hours and I'm following and understanding the materials! I cannot say thank you enough for making this a smooth, and easy process this far. I cannot wait to upgrade, and see exactly how far I can go with all this information and training!

I was once "green" to all of this Internet stuff, as with anything new you are going to be green to it when starting out. No different than riding a bike or learning how to talk, you once didn't have this knowledge but you acquired it by doing and by being taught by others that know how to do it.

The same goes with WA. You can learn this and we will teach you everything you need to know and offer you all the support you need.

Have a read of this post, it is going to be relevant. :) You are going to be just fine, it is not going to be long at all before you are very proficient with this Internet business stuff!

You are definitely in the right place at the right time. Wealthy Affiliate has never been more advanced and in a better state, and the affiliate marketing marketing and Internet mktg. industry in general has never had more opportunity.

Usually when I hear audio in English active translator, I know that this wonderful place does not have this option, but it would be possible to make the video a little slower, since there is no other choice but to learn English, at least a little more slowly please ... or also a transcript written in pdf would be great ... I want to take 1000x1000 everything you say, but frustrated by the language .. Any suggestions? .. thank you.

I currently have a capture page made in Wordpress that is using the domain I would like to use for my page here. I also want to have a specific link to that capture page for anyone interested in that specific product. How do I go about transferring my Wordpress capture page here, and do I just give it a subdomain name then?

Hi Susan.
Why not just transfer your site here and solve all the problems in one go.

What if you make a free website and it's successful or has potential, would your ideas or domain name get taken before you get a chance to purchase your own domain? Also once you're ready to purchase a domain do you have to build a whole new site? Or can you just change the name of your first free site? Basically just take out the "siterubix" and just have .com
Reply
BobBarr Premium
It can be very difficult to purchase the same domain name as you have for your siterubix subdomain name. In many cases, you'll find that the domain name is already registered and you'll need to come up with another one.

The siterubix platform has a "Move" function that will copy your entire siterubix site to a purchased domain with one click. The name of the purchased domain doesn't matter for that function to work. It will move any free domain's content to the new domain.
Reply
Thanks, very helpful, so is it just hard in general to get the name you want on your own domain? Also is a siterubix site really efficient and secure enough to run a good site generating revenue? Or is getting your own domain always really going to be necessary eventually?

Hi there! You could always park a domain that you want, later on you can move it to WA, and then move your site rubix to your domain. It can all be done. Indeed you can move your site rubix to a new domain at WA and all pages will be forwarded to it, it will also tell Google about it, so you have no duplicate content issues. So once you did that, leave the site rubix website there for at least a month or so, so that Google knows where your new website is. All done for you, it's a wonderful thing!

Remember that any website has potential. You create the potential. You can make anything profitable, if you do an excellent job in providing great service and solutions to your visitors!

I wish you great succes at WA! ☼

In answer to your second question: yes having your own domain name is essential for your rankings in Google! And it's better for your visitors, they take you more serious if you have your own domain name. You can run a website in site rubix of course, it's secure and it has the basics you need. But running your own domain is much better. Highly recommended. It's worth the investment to go premium :-)

Thanks so much for that

If I'm adamant that my site is going to be successful would you recommend starting it in my own domain? Or starting on a free siterubix to be safe and then move it to my own domain once it begins to pick up?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Start with a free site, get your grounding and then once you are ready, move to your own domain. You can get your own domain out of the gate if you like, but you will need a Premium membership to hot your own domain.

We have a MOVE feature that you can use to easily transition a free .siterubix.com website to your own domain.

Thank you for explaining that! I was wondering the same thing: can I transfer to a purchased domain in the near future using the free siterubix initially.

I'm a old web developer and designer. This is so easy, and yes, gone are the days for hiring someone like me! Thus, I am here!

Pay per click was something I did for my own Ecommerce business (Circa 1999-2007) and spent a ridiculous amount of money each year with Google. But I also did the original version of affiliate ads reversing the process of spending to earning on my domains. I had a ton of domains and several had top ratings in Google organically. So, I simply inserted the codes for ads and the first year without even trying I made $4,000 with an initial input of about 2 days online.

But it was labor intensive and I hosted my own domains etc. I soon abandoned that gig for a full time web developer position in the "real 9-5 job...ugh).

This process offered appears to be so far, like a cakewalk for anyone with a desire to put in a little time. It's all pre built - like buying a house already built and having it dropped on a piece of land! Skip the carpentry and hard labor! Can't wait!

Yeah, times have changed and the efficiency in which you can build beautiful and highly advanced websites has truly changed.

Things that used to take months now can be done in days and as time goes on, we are going to continue to simplify things in ways that no other hosting co or website platform is doing.

Lots of exciting shifts coming in 2018 that will only continue to advanced our already advanced platform.

Hi Kyle, so here is a question. I am considering to transfer the hosting of my Dutch website (a .nl domain) to Wealthy Affiliate. Right now I build the entire html etc. myself. It looks okay, people love it, but it can look much better. So I could start in site rubix, transferring all my website pages there with the exact same page url name they have right now (like example.html, etc.) and then when that huge job is done, make sure my domain name is linked to the make over version? I don't want a lot of down time okay ;-) Even better: no down time because I have a lot of dedicated visitors that would be in shock if it was all offline... I want all the pages to have the exact same name, because they are already well ranked in Google, so no changes there! What would be the best strategy to work with?

And yes, as a start I'm going to create a brand new international website as well :-D I already researched and found a great and very short .com domain name :-D Is it better to first start building in site rubix and then later on link the domain name? Or register the domain name right away and hide it for google for a while till I have a number of lovely articles etc. published?

My mind is spinning a bit, but I really like this new adventure! I hope my questions are clear to you, if not just ask! Thank you for reading!

If it is just pure html, I guess you could create a dummy site at WA.
Then using ftp or FileZilla transfer the pure html files over from your old host over to your WA hosting. I think your dot htaaccess file needs an entry so that if someone visits say thewebsite dot com, that the default html file opens up.

Using pure html means you have to build all your webpages from scratch, whereas using Word Press, the look and feel of the website is in the Word Press Theme, so it is easy enough to change the look and feel without 'destroying' the content.

Play around with the Site Rubix way of using the WA site builder, develop a small test site first and play around. Using WA with WP means that the WP theme takes care of a lot of things regarding the look and feel of the website and on different platforms (pc / smartphone / ipads ) whereas using pure HTML you would have to build each webpage separately.

Once you are familiar with this way of doing things, you will see what a time saver it is compared to using pure HTML.

Hi David, yes I know, I have other sites build in WP and it's a super platform to build your content. I didn't want to change my own programming etc. for the website I mentioned because that would mean I would have to do it in a real crazy way with my current provider, they offer WP too you see, but over here at WA it's much easier to switch stuff. So I will have to build a dummy indeed until I'm satisfied (around 60 pages to transfer, but okay!) It will be so much better for the site structure as well. Google loves WP! So a lot to do for me ;-) The domain will stay at the current provider, because it is a .nl domain and WA doesn't offer that I guess. But I could change the name servers once I finished transferring all the pages into posts etc. There will be a few changes as some posts will change into pages, better for the tier structure, which I haven't got right now. I was too lazy to change all of that hahaha.

This is an amazing front end manager. I've worked with several others and without even finishing the video I can tell this is going to be worth it. All this content and a management platform for only 50 a month(rhetorical)? I've seen other suites that only offer a fraction of what you do for several times the cost. Why would anyone go somewhere else? Am I missing something? What is the catch?

Ok, I have my niche.... Camping and hiking gear for women and kids... is it a good choice to use the free domain and then move it to my own domain later? The comments on here seem to go both ways and I know it is a personal choice... is it really that easy to change it over at a later date?
Also, should my site name be a variation of what I described as my niche or how best to use the concept into a site name?
Thank you for your feedback!!

Question: This video demos how to set up a free site with WA. If we want to own the domain, we click "register a new domain", complete the process of registering our domain, and then must upgrade to premium in order to build the site on our domain? I am ok either way, I just am confused on the process. Can we build our site for free on a domain that we just registered with WA?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, in order to host your own domains you will need to be a Premium member. You can host up to 25 of your own domains as a Premium.

You can build two free websites on the .siterubix.com domain as a free Starter member.

I hope this clarifies.

Hey, I'm a little concerned. I see mainly the type of websites to create here are niche for those who would like to know about something and helping others (their audience) on how to find/learn about that topic. Not sure how that is going to work with my one of my website interest project. My website goal is not necessarily a "niche" has a project. Wanting to advertise and promote my goal in publishing a book and eventually a movie on a lesser known star? Who is my audience? Those who enjoy classic entertainment? Or would I need to go the route of my audience to learn with me on how to publish a book, then a movie/film?

And if i can create my business with WA, how can WA help me keep track of the sales and progress, i know it must be silly to ask but can anyone explain it to me.

MozMary Premium
do you actually have products that you want to sell? You can certainly create a shop with wordpress and the plugin woocommerce

affiliate marketing is where you don't need to invest in products, you help other people sell their products and you get a commission. It means you don't need to invest money in a product inventory or handle shipping.

so if you were in the health niche there are many products you can review and help guide people towards buying - they are already searching in google and are researching, you help them - same with the online marketing niche, people want to know where to get online with a website and you explain how good this platform is [or another one of your choosing] and when people sign up you get a commission

so niche is choosing your audience, who do you want to sell to , what do you think you could promote

if you follow along the lessons Kyle will explain how making money online works

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:

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. :-)
