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!

Is it ok to have 2 niches at once. E.G. can I have a niche about a topic that I'm passionate about, and also have a page or section that promotes wealthy affiliate or any other affiliate program?
I'm just curious as to how would this be done and has anyone ever double dipped on niches and had any success..

Quite frankly it is up to you. Tes, why not. If you create great content and follow the training you will succeed. A lot of the guys would tell you one at a time.

Thank you.
I appreciate you.

Your not alone. During the last session I immediately thought of two ideas. I would say get the ground work on one done first. That way you can learn from your mistakes before taking on the second one. If everything goes well you will be into your second one shortly.

@hgruvman. Thank you. I appreciate you. That makes sense. I always do what I think is right when it comes to the online business and always end up with zero results.
This time I'm going to listen to my peers. They say if you want different results you have to do things differently..

So thank you.

And I will focus on just one niche, and if successful, then I'll give 2 a try ..

Hi, I think I need some help here with the WordPress menu and those things.
I have tried over and over again to get it set like described herein
the session without any luck.
It looks more a battlefield than a WP site.
The Menu page has a bit different outlook than what you describe in the program, and that makes me a bit confused.
Is there any way for support to help me get it up and shine?

Thanks a lot for this program. I am confident that I will succeed more or less over time.

Hi there, newbie here! My question is for the website that is being built, what is the content that exists on here? Is it blogging or just strictly advertising the niche? What sets a high traffic website apart from one that is not getting any leads? Lastly, how is the website found by others (for example: if someone performs a Google search, what page of the results would your site be found on and do you need to pay to have it bumped up?).

Hi Tammy, Joe here. Welcome to WA! You follow the training outlined, build your website and start writing articles about your niche. What sets the high traffic sites apart from the lower ones is content. Google will index your site, meaning they will notice it, then as you write more and more articles, it will move up in ranking with publishing more genuine content. You cannot pay to move up in google ranking. If you use the right keywords when writing, those that people will use when searching google, then it will gain more popularity quicker. I have only been here about 5 months and have already had two of my articles make page 1, for a couple days anyway. Now average page 2 with all my articles. Follow the training step by step and you'll do fine:)

This was a great introduction. I think I'll stay on as a starter until I learn more and start making some money. It's great to know that premium is available for furthering my knowledge and education.
I just have one question. Is the only way to make money with affiliate marketing by building a website and directing traffic to that site? I've seen some other stuff with click funnels and embedding your link in a popular instagrammer's account, etc. Are those legitimate or scams?

probably the fastest way to make money is to create reviews on yt about products from click bank - but even that will take time as it is competitive.
all legit make money online schemes will take time - and work
or if not time then money....
or you could use the fallback of filling in forms or surveys...
good luck

Hi - you are unlikely to find legitimate and genuine websites that pay you $10 for 10 minutes' work. All online businesses take time and effort.
