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.

  • 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!

Thanks for great video!

My website has an error, the 'e' didn't come out in the footer or the top left of my site, so it says, 'Th Age-Defying Vegan' instead of 'The'.

How do I correct this please? I can't find any 'footer modification' etc and I need to change the top left too,

Many thanks

Nikki

Hi Nikki - to change the title of your site go into the wordpress dashboard and click on settings general and you will find the title there.
the footer modification should be under appearance - customize and in there there should be footer...
but it may not be in that section...it maybe in the site identity...or elsewhere.
the designers of these templates express their personalities in things they can alter and the customize menu structure is one of them....
best to look at the themes homepage for documentation on your particular theme
good luck

Hi all, just a quick question regarding Jaaxy, not sure how it works, where is it getting this search information, from whole GOOGLE or USA or Canada only? I am in the UK and would like to target people in UK, will it show me relevant information for UK market? p.s. Thanks, great stuff to learn on here! :)

carson created an article on where jaaxy gets its data from can you target just the uk...hmmm well as data is oming from google.com then not really - but if you are going for local seo ou will be putting the town or city in
if it is general then i maybe would be looking at ubersuggest.io or other search engines that can change location - and if you are using google autocomplete then make sure to use google.co.uk = nd look at the related searches as well....
good luck

Jaaxy gets the data from Google. I have found Ubersuggest to be better when I want to target local SEO.

Regarding the topic of board games: board games shop/stores are a good topic to focus on?

There are tons of keywords including the word store or shop related to board games with a lot of traffic and almost no competition: but I'm concerned it may not be related enough to my webpage, which talks about these games and does recommendations. What do you think?

On first glance, I like the topic. I can see a lot of potential in it.

Hi everyone, need help again!

Ive added a policy page and posted about me as a post. When I view my website I can't see my policy page and the about me section does not look how I have written it but if I view it on the WA site content page it seems fine.

How do I edit my posts, do I do it on Wordpress or on WA site content?

Can you share the link to your website? I don't know if it's possible to find it on your profile or not :)

I have used Wordpress a lot in the past, but have only just created my site through WA. I would assume that you have more control from within Wordpress itself.

For me, the word "Niche" is indeed both scary and exciting at the same time.

However, the statement below puts me more at ease. Especially the last sentence.

"When choosing a niche that fits you, you should be choosing something that is ideally an interest, a passion, a hobby, but it could be something that you would like to learn about. You don't need to BE an expert, you BECOME an expert."

I can completely relate to that when I started. I had no idea how any of this worked. I was severely overwhelmed.

The way Kyle teaches us through these lessons makes it all more understandable and down to earth.

I'm glad you were put at ease with choosing a niche. You really don't have to be a pro to teach. Teach what you learn as you learn.

All the best,
Brandon
