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).

I have a question. Let's say I have already decided my niche & one of my topics/webpage somehow don't have a product related to it on all the famous websites like Amazon, eBay, Flipkart etc ? What should I do in that case?

What if I have many topics to write on & I use an affiliate link related to the other topic(let's say mobile technology) on my website to my current topic(the one which doesn't have any products on the famous websites). Will that be OK?

I mean, in the end, most of us are just going to buy stuff from the well known & trusted websites.

And how many affiliate links on a single webpage is considered to be OK?
2?3?

I want to know that can I display different products from different sites on one 1 website.
for ex - from amazon one cc cream and from Walmart one lipstick can we do that. or by doing this we can go banned.

plz, suggest to me whether I go for different products from different sites or should stick to one site forex- like the only selling amazon products.

try not to think of your niche as a product - but what the product does - the end result.
so the lipstick - want to present yourself at your best - so more of a makeup - so what about makeupstyles in your 40's
this way you get to do how to's and promote products as solutions.
this way is a lot more subtle that trying to sell a product to anyone.
but it can cover many products on one website
good luck

Hi everyone! I've a question. Let's assume I have a website & someone buys a product through my affiliate link.
Now let's put aside the commission part.
What I want to know is what kind of information I'll get to know about the customer who is buying through my link?

*First of all, I would like to make this clear, I'm not talking about any personal information.*
The thing I'm talking about is for eg:- Which part of the world they belong to OR from where they are purchasing the product through my link.

The one thing that I know is "Business is all about catering your customers NEEDS & WANTS"

I'll try to explain by giving an example.
Let's assume I have like 10 affiliate links, out of which 7 links are accessed by people from a particular region, let's say, London & they end up buying a product.

So if I know from which region of the world, most of my affiliated products are bought, it would help me in future if I try to choose more specific products for my new affiliate links.

I hope my question makes some sense.

Thanks in advance for your reply & taking time out to read my question.

What information you get by the affiliate network differs but in most cases you won't get information other than how many clicks were there on your link and how many purchased from those clicks.

You can use tools like clickmagick to know where are the clicks coming from, fake clicks, and many other things.

Thanks for replying!
I just read few things on ClickMagick & honestly, I liked some of its features (& didn't understood the rest 😅). I didn't see its pricing, but I want to know is it really worth it to use such a tool?
Is there any better or maybe cheap alternative to it? Does Wealthy Affiliate provide such a tool?

Plus what do you mean by fake clicks? Do you mean bots? If yes, then how can we avoid the whole bot stuff? I have seen my websites & YouTube channels comment section which were spammed with full of bots messages.

I have just joined this community today & I'm still a starter member.
Infact you can think of me as a amateur in this whole online business stuff.

I'm going through the training & the comments section as well to know more about the community & all the different terms/tools associated with online business.

I know I'm getting too far ahead but still want to learn & know more about this stuff.

Is there anyone here who has tried this ClickMagick tool(or maybe another alternative) & could share their experience?

Thank you!

hey hi Vishal & welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Super question & all questions are good ones here....

Yes ... it's all possible .... it's just that it will take much more effort on your part for the rate of return and also likely take a lot, lot longer ...

Suggest you get rolling on the step by step training with Kyle over the next few days or so and then decide ... where there's a will, there's always a Way to Success! ....

here's the blue link to the training for you ... All the very best to you .. cheerio ... :)

Hi - it's possible, but it will be much more difficult. You will only have limited access to the training, and after your first 7 days, you won't be able to communicate with other members or ask questions if you get stuck.

Do be aware, that even with a premium membership you would be unlikely to see any income for at least 3 months, and more realistically it would be 6 months. This is not a get rich quick scheme, you are building a genuine online business for your future.

Should I reconsider my niche if Google ads keywords shows competition is very high? Should I pick a niche based off of low competition keywords rather than my passions? Using Jaxxy would it be better to go with a high traffic, high competition keyword with an OK KQI, and a SEO rank of 73, or rather pick a lower traffic, lower competition keyword that has a great KQI and SEO rank in the 90's?

I wouldn't base your niche off a keyword or off Google Ads. There will be thousands of keywords you can target for your niche to obtain free organic traffic from search results pages
