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!

Pardon me if my question is bit unnecessary as I'm a newbie. I'd like to know if there is an agreement I have to make with the seller before promotion their products on my website or I can just start promoting them without their consent and once the client is directed to them via my link/website they will automatically know it and pay me my commission from there. Thanks

Every affiliate programs or merchants will ask you to read their Terms and Conditions before you can join to be their affiliate.

You need the approval to sell their products. Once approved, you will get a link with your affiliate code to promote and track your earning. On some platforms like Clickbank you are preapproved. You can directly capture your affiliate link and start promoting. If you simply promote the product without their consent then you will not be eligible for the commission. You need your own affiliate link of the product to promote.

When I try to do the menu setup it says Your theme does not natively support menus, but you can use them in sidebars by adding a “Navigation Menu” widget on the Widgets screen. I actually do want to change my theme but the last time I did it I lost my website

Would you have a criterion what is a potentially profitable niche, i.e. more than x Google search requests (not absolutely eclectic and esoteric) / less than y Google search requests (so that it is not too broad). Background of my question is that I do consider setting up my business in German language, which means that my market is not all Americas, Canada, Australia etc. but tinier area of Germany, Switzerland and Austria. So I am curious to understand if I have to somehow "scale" the recommendations (apart from "localizing" everything....we have no football snack helmets around here (just fr example) but the concept of tiny niche is well understood). For example, I want to understand if my niche is rather on the level of "latest kitchen gadgets" or "high end kitchen cutting tools" or "garlic cutters".

you might not have football helmets but you do have skiing helmets....
it is more looking through google trends and you can select the country before you hit enter
what you are looking for is a stable or increasing market trend and people in it who are willing to buy and thats it really
then it is up to you to help those people with their problems and promote solutions....
if you think latest kitchen gadgets why not the world rather than germany switzerland and austria - why not create it in english with a translation to geman -wider market
if you go for the smaller market know what seperates those countries - know the people - what their problems are - how to talk to them and solve their problems.
good luck
phil
but you niche will be a problem area rather than a product itself
so kitchen gadgets or looking into that market and finding an area that is underserved by the big sites -you will need to do some research.
you will be creating loads of articles in your niche so make sure whatever you pick you like as it comes through in your writing and you want to be passionate about it.

I am going to sell jewelry for men, women, girls, boys, cats, and dogs.
SO EXCITING!!!!!

Jewellery will be a great niche but you might want to choose,say Men or women or children or animals, not have them all as this will be too wide to start with.
Start with 1 and then as you grow you can extend your niche out if you choose to
I hope this helps
