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).

Hi you all.. I am just got certified as a personal trainer; After watching these training videos, I realized I will be able to do a lot better bringing traffic to my website; and actually writing about my fitness niche.. I want to do a youth fitness. Should this niche be narrowed down a bit more?

I don't think you need to narrow it down beyond that. What's your site name / url?

Thank you so much for your response. I created a fitness brand called Insane Fitness (IInsanefiTness) years back.. I wanted to use http://IInsanefiTness.com; but I’m kind of confused as to rather or not I should include something dealing with youth in the url.

Hey, so I have a candle business with a website up and running. Am I supposed to have my niche based around candles? I feel if I do that, I will be promoting the candles of another company. And if I picked a different niche to promote on my website like lets say nail polish... would that look weird to the customers shopping on my website. I feel like the niche and my business website have to go hand-and- hand, but there isn't a real way to do that without promoting some other companies candles.

You are right, your business website is your niche. I truly hope this is what you wanted. You will be promoting candles from another company, but you should do so as an affiliate to that company. That is the basics of affiliate marketing.
Once you have chosen candles, stay away from promoting other products like nail polish, so as to not confuse your audience. The principle here is one website, one niche only.

Thanks so much that helps me. In my candle business, I make and sell my candles on my website to customers. So this niche thing for me would pretty much have to be a whole new business and new website.

Yes, if you have another niche different from you candle business, then it is best to start a new website for that niche.

However, on your candle website you can look for items to promote that go along with candles, like candle holders, or table runners that you set candles on, just think accessories, and promote those on your candle site, if you don't already.

Good luck.

Kendra, you can also add a store and sell your own candles through the Affiliate website if it's separate. If it's the same site, then keep the Affiliate links to your blog portion and make sure to sprinkle your own products in there as well. Think of the Affiliate Revenue as bonus money or drop shipping.

You may promote yours. However the challenge is how do you send the candles around the world. Whereas if it i another candles through Affliate program, you only have to write content on these candles and if your redersbuy from your site, you will get commissions. You do not to worry about shipping, and all that.

Megawinner has a point. There are plugins that can show different content based on your location. I would use one of these and push your own products to the markets where you are able to ship.

I've used this one previously for a client. I recommend the pro version.

I want a mentor to give me samples of niche

A sample of a niche is Fitness Training. Now you may want to norrow it you may want to go to the exercise training. In the gym there are types of exercises using equipment, They are aerobic activity and training, strength training, balance training and flexibility training. So if you choose. Fitness training Exercises you would have many options to go to equipmentor accessories. Those are your niche.

Niche is a specific topic of your choice. You should think of a niche that would earn you money through commission not only about what you are most passionate about and most interested in.
