People tend to make the process of building a business online more complex than it needs to be. In this video I am going to break down the process of creating a business, explaining the 4 components that are required.

These steps are:

(1) Building a niche website
(2) Create helpful, relevant content
(3) Get Rankings & Traffic
(4) Make Money (many ways you can do this)

Notice that the "make money" part comes in the 4th step. This is because before you can generate revenue, you first need PEOPLE to sell it to. The 3 steps are required before that and Level 2 of the training covers how to get ranked and get substantial amounts of traffic within any niche.

I finally got to this level course after a few months of now doing it. Kyle I been at this for almost a year and a half. I would love to be successful at this. My work has been keeping me busy. Plus I had some other obstacles along the way. I want to be fully committed to this.

This is a good session 3:10 in the training....I took a lot of notes here. I think I'm narrowing in down to about 4 to 6 (more probably) major hiccups for me presently along with about 5 to 8 minor ones....I've been at it a month and have come quite a way but have a long way to go....my goal is to see where I stand in 12 months of WA as I see it now, looks like really the first 3 mths will be intense training with the remainder 9 mths less intense but still training none the less...tks, Kyle for your vids as they are jam-packed like "gun-powder".....Duane.

HI
When I say I am a beginner that in what I am. I am working on lesson 4 and to the point of adding a look for your website. I choose the look and down loaded it and get this message. What Fire Fox should do with file open with Archive utility or save. I use an apple lap top. I need help in what to do with it and how to use it with my site.

I got this message from Tony Omary. He is the person that I sign up with but am unable to get back through to him.

"You should save the file first and not open it. After saving, go to appearance>themes>add theme>Upload themes then upload the theme you downloaded."

I have saved it but that is as far as I have been able to go, I do not know how to do the following. After saving, go to appearance>themes>add theme>Upload themes then upload the theme you downloaded.

If some one can help with this I would be very grateful. I have tried several ways to send a message but have not been successful. If any one gets this message would you tell me be replying to me e mail, address cri@q.com.

I am sending this message out with all the ways I think there is, so hope some one will get it.

Thank you LaMar

Where are you downloading it from? This is likely an issue with your actual theme here Lamar (if you uploaded it).

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've never done it before, but so far I know, I think if your themes are belong to Wordpress, then only you can transfer it from other platform to here in WA, otherwise if it is belong to other platform, then you can't. In that case, you can only back up your all content from your previous website and paste those here choosing other theme in WA. Yep, it is hassle, but once you complete it, after that it will be more easy for you. But, if there is some shortcut ways, then only Kyle knows about it and it is better either you wait his reply or just directly send private message to him through his profile.
Good Luck!

@Lamar4,
Sorry, but from your queries it seems you have skipped some lessons. If you have taken every WA lessons by clicking the Green bar on the left hand side menu of WA, then you should have find everything about how to set up a website within those video lessons, step by step and much more ways to earn money from your that website. Even the answer of your queries are in very first courses, within 10 lessons. So, I suggest you to refer those videos, that can explain you much more better than what I can explain here.
You can also find how to change theme by clicking this link:- You can find the admin panel by logging in your website by clicking siterubix blue bar on the left hand side menu of WA and then after that "Manager" tab.
Good Luck!

It's easy to want to skip to the make money part, but it's not gonna happen without providing great content.

I often look at other authority sites in my niche and wonder how I'm ever going to compete with them, but then I remind myself that my content is still unique to me and if the keywords are done well then there's surely no reason not to pull in some decent engagement.

Thanks Kyle !

Wow. This is too exciting. I have learned more than I could have imagined and I feel this is just the tip of the iceberg. I have built the site and put in some content. I also am an Amazon Affiliate. I followed the program all the way to the low hanging fruit and my next challenge is to master rankings. I hope everyone else is as excited as I am so we can all do it till the wheels fall off. Good luck everybody.

It took a while to realise that without traffic, you can forget about $$$. Initially, I had this idea that once I publish a few posts, $$$ will be flowing in. Boy, was I so wrong!
Focus on the content, follow the lessons and trainings, keep posting, be consistent ( this is KEY) and everything will fall in its place. :-D

This video - doesnt answer the question about writing and why do I need a blog. Wordpress is CMS - content management system(podcasts, videos, pictures, galleries, forums), it doesnt need to be a blog! It can be no post, no updates, no calendar, just some 10-15 at max different pages with solution content(possibly landing one) with description of profeesional service, some catch forms, info pages and a solutions for pains and benefits for customer. Local businessman need customers not news source, friendship or unprofessional advices from unknown to business practices self-made guru. Sorry I already have some kind of blog with audience - my twitter, facebook, vk, google+ etc.
I dont need readers - I need subscribers that wanna solves their problems not something that I think they need to solve...

Ok, I have content, not 50 plus pages but content none the less, I see traffic by viewing Google Analytics but really don't quite understand what I am seeing there -- right now no one real time, and no money yet either....I am hoping that the more I add to my website the more I will see others reviewing and maybe even a greater number returning because I did a good job and it is something they are interested in.

I have content and am getting traffic on the site according to Google analytics and my Amazon ads. No money yet, but I am sure that will come. It is just a matter of numbers. Only a certain percentage of people will buy. As I grow my content, I can start looking specifically at the finer points, getting people at the right stage of purchase, etc.

If you are new in the WA platform, is very important that you understand the concepst on this video. The first time I saw this info I was to excited about making money and getting started. Now that I come back after a few weeks I can see that this is the solid base of any online business you want to do.

I like the learning process and everyday brings a better understanding for me. When I first started WA I was scratching my head alot because it was all so new and I couldn't grasp everything that was being conveyed. I have much better idea of what I need to do now because I have gained confidence and patience, thanks to WA.

The 4 steps which is covered in detail from level 1-3 is very informative. In some instances I need to go back and review. I'm still trying to modify my website, but not successfully done that, so I'm hoping to get some help there. I added and affiliate and a product, but had some problems with adsense, which I could not get going. I think the most important factor is what I'm passionate about and then find ways how that can be made to help people.

I'm doing everything I can do according to the four steps. I'm trying to ad new content everday that is fun and informative. I've added my first affiliate. Now I'm just restlessly waiting for traffic. I keep telling myself if you build it they will come. So I'm being patient and anxious to learn how I can sell my own product online. Thanks, Kyle, for your wonderful lessons. I will be a success.

Patience is definitely something you must have if you wish to succeed in an online business because it can take months before you make you first sale. Like every new business just starting out, many things need to happen before people will start to recognize you. - Just keep moving forward.

I just want to say that it does not matter if you are good at writing content already. I know I can write good content because I've been doing so for quite some time, getting good rankings in Google and many here at WA have said as much.

However I am never satisfied and neither should anyone else who feels that they already write good quality content. I always want to learn, even if it is something I already know because it can spark creativity to better myself moving forward.

Thanks for the continued knowledge and training Kyle.

Thank you for keeping the process simple. I've spent the last couple of days creating the content and researching affiliates. I have my niche in mind. Planning to build the website tomorrow then focus on traffic. Building the website with WordPress seems fairly easy - not to over-simplify building a website. Looking forward to getting this up and running.

Thank you Kyle - I am a firm believer in the K I S S principle (not the one that says keep it simple stupid) but the one that says KEEP IT SIMPLE and STRAIGHTFORWARD and your training always certainly hits the mark. No frills - straight to the point and with clarity.

Kyle, at 52 years old, this is On the Job Training for me. I picked making money on the internet. I don't how to do it. I still have not thought up a name for my website that won't infringe on a possible affiliate contract stipulation.

Kyle, I need guidance in how to build a webpage that will fall into the guidelines of those I want to direct traffic to. I still don't understand where the content comes from.

Pokerstar, I suggest that you edit this so that you ask a question. Also click on "yes" when the box pops up. This way those in the community who have a better understanding of your situation can respond. Cindy
