OK, awesome. You now have your niche, in other words, the direction for your brand & business. That is great and don't worry about this not being "perfectly clear" at this point, as you move forward the pieces of the puzzle are going to come together.

Starting with a big piece today, your website. We are going to be taking our niche idea and turning it into a tangible business starting with your website.

Building a Website Ain't Scary, It's FUN!

Building a website sounds like a "scary" process, but fortunately you have access to the most advanced, yet simplistic website platform in the world here at Wealthy Affiliate. We pride ourselves as a technology company here at Wealthy Affiliate and we are the industry leaders in the website development space.

I am not going to toot our horn any longer, I would rather you experience the website builder and platform for itself. The first step today is going to be building your website, which will literally take you less than 30 seconds.

Click the SiteBuilder link

within the menu, and you are going to be ready to rock here (and complete the next task).

Below I have included a "Building Your Website in Under 30 Seconds" video walking you through the Website Platform (also known as SiteRubix) here at WA and showing you how quickly and efficiently you can build a website here at Wealthy Affiliate.

 

Task 1: Build Your Website

Your website is your foundation of your business. It is where all of your traffic is ultimately going to come to, where you are going to build brand and trust within the industry, and where you can promote products/services and generate $$$!

The SiteBuilder platform here at WA is the most simplistic, yet advanced in the industry. It is going to take less than 30 seconds to get a fully operational, profit ready Wordpress website up and running online.

There are 4 steps in the website build process, that I am going to walk you through here. To access the SiteBuilder and EVERYTHING related to your website, you will simply click the light blue "SiteRubix" button in the main menu.

Step 1: Choose the Kind of Website

There are really TWO options here, on a FREE website or on your OWN domain. Ideally, you will have your own domain, but that can come with time.

You can "register" your very own domains right within Wealthy Affiliate using our state of the art SiteDomains platform, which will allow you to instantly set-up your own domain for your own use.

If you are just starting out as a Starter member, you will be building a website on the .siterubix.com domain, which is a completely free website. You can build and host your own FREE website as a Starter.

As a Premium member, you can build and host up to 10 websites (including websites on your own domain). That is more than adequate to drive many multi-million dollar businesses over time and our hosting platform is industry leading in terms of speed, security, and reliability...all critical factors to running a successful online business.

For the sake of this training, we are going to be choosing "On a free domain".

Do know that within the Premium membership, you can easily MOVE a free .siterubix.com button to a registered domain (one you own) using the "Premium Only" MOVE feature. So by all means start off with a free website and then down the road you can easily move it to your own domain.

Step 2: Choose a Domain

Remember last lesson when I chose my "niche". In this step, I am going to be choosing a name for my website and placing it in the "domain name" field. This is because this will be my website URL and my brand moving forward.

As you can see below, I have added my brand "how to lose belly fat today" into the domain field.


When you type in your domain, it will let you know if it is available or not. In my case it was, but if your first choice is not available simply do another search until you find a domain name that works for you.

You cannot put spaces in your domain name, hence why my domain is "howtolosebellyfattoday".

Step 3: Choose a Website Name

The name of your website should match your domain, but it just needs to be grammatically correct (with proper spacing). You can see below my example of this:

Domain: basketballskillsanddrills.stierubix.com

Title: Basketball Skills and Drills

It is as simple as that. Don't overthink this step, your title will be the same as your domain.

Step 4: Choose a Design

The last step is choosing a "look" for your theme. As a Starter member you will have access to ONE theme that has been hand picked for quality, speed, security, and overall theme design.

As a Premium Member though you will have access to over 4,134 designs (as shown below) or your website and there are always new designs being added to this daily. These are referred to as "Themes".

Choose a design that you like.

Click on the design you like, and then you will be able to build your site.

SiteRubix, a Next Level Website and Hosting Platform.

You are going to notice that there are many other website features allocated within the SiteRubix menu. I don't want to eat up too much of your time here, but it is important that you understand the incredible benefits of the SiteRubix platform.

The powerful hosting you have access you here is unparalleled in the Managed Wordpress hosting industry. We truly specialize here in providing a secure, robust and FAST platform for you to run your website.

We know that your website IS your business, and it is important that you have the most advanced technology to keep your business operating at 100% at all times of the day.

The following are just some of the powerful features included within the SiteRubix platform here at WA.

  • SiteManager (Starter & Premium)
  • SiteContent (Starter & Premium)
  • SiteBuilder (Starter & Premium)
  • SiteDomains (Starter & Premium)

To make your sites secure and fast, we have some SiteRubix EXCLUSIVE technologies to make sure your websites are operating at lightening speeds, but also in a very secure way that protects you from hackers, spammers, and all forms of erroneous attacks.

There you have it, the low down of the SiteRubix platform and you have your website officially up and running online. Exciting stuff!

As we move forward within the training we are going to be building out your website content, and working to get indexed and ranked in Google, Bing & Yahoo (and do so for free).

To be honest... I'm amazingly, 100%, totally, lost in all this. I feel like I'm in some kind of fog what with all the info. being poured out in front of you. There are skills here, that are different from skills I'm familiar with. I think what's being said, in a nutshell, is that we will basically 'advertise' for a product and when said product is purchased from them, then we would get a percentage of the profit. I hope I'm correct and also making sense.

Yup that's right; and I have suggested this to others. Try Amazon Associates; sign up for them. Just search for Amazon Associates in Google. Then sign up for them. And if you have problems with the tax forms; try Kyle, Carson, Carson2, and Site Support. Site Support is in Websites at the bottom; and to contact Kyle and others; just put their names into the search engine here on WA separately. Then click on the name; for instance; Kyle. Hope this helps?

You are right, that is it. However, the best way to move forward is to go through the training. If still unclear go through again. It is pretty straight forward, just needs to click.

I think you're getting it. I know I feel as confused as you say you do a lot of the time. I think I'm going to have to learn to take it one step at a time, learn what is on that step, and then move on. That's hard for me because I keep running into things where I feel like I need to know it all at once!

I agree with Wynette, it is a lot of information, however I believe if I'm willing to climb a mountain then it will be 1 step at a time! We can do this!

I haven't signed up to a premium membership but I just would like to know what the terms and conditions are if I cancel my membership ( let's say after I join for 3 months)? Can I cancel anytime I want? I have done 10 video lessons and I have a good faith of the services / products provided by WA, but I just would like to know some details about membership cancellation. It seems that I can't find any information or discussion about the cancellation.

Quite easy Clementapp. You can terminate your membership at anytime. Just go through your Dashboard, Account Setting, Membership and then stop Billing and Cancel Membership. However, better to always think of suceeding rather than anticipating the otherwise. With the current trend in Technology and World Wide Web, the easy way to secure the source of income tomorrow is building an Online Business. It might take sometime before it start yielding big but it certainly will. Goodluck

Hi!, as a senior (50+) I want to focus on this market. I think it is relatively underserved... lots of senior living, etc. I am thinking of a lifestyle site/blog/products to address the under-recognized reality of the hardships senior face: age/job discrimination, loneliness, discrimination, etc. Does anyone think this is a good market, idea(s), and any input will be very helpful.

I think this is a good niche. The more targeted you get the better, as it will lead to a more targeted audience. I think there's a lot to be talked and wrote about here. If you have good knowledge in these areas, I'd say go for it!

I think this is an awesome idea. Not only will you have people in your target market seeking the info you're considering, but their caretakers will be doing so as well. I haven't done any searches in this niche myself but it sounds like a pretty solid one. I'll let you know if I come up with any other thoughts.

Looking forward to seeing your progress!

Hi, to add a photo, click on the circle where your image should appear and go to profile. There you will see how to add an image. With clickbank, etc, all the info you need to get started is in the training. Ask questions, send me a message anytime. Your English is great! Good luck

I am an English language teacher and I think you are doing a fine job of communicating in English.
First, go through the training and get your website set up and indexed.

Creat 10 or more posts/articles.

Then go to an affiliate program outside WA and use their software to insert links.

When a visitor clicks your redirecting link and then buys something, you earn a commission.
