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).

The idea that i had was to write a blog about what I learn while reading through Carl Jung. I could use the books for my affiliate links. I could also extend it to psychoanalysis in general as well as to philosophy, but maybe that is too broad. However I am concerned that not many other people will be interested in such topics.

I think it's a great topic but I think you'll need to show the benefits for people to sell it. Like, for more success, happier relationships.. etc.

This is a good idea. Finding a dynamic way to post and present your information can draw the right 'crowd' to your site.

I need some advice I love psychology and stuff that deal relationships , sex , also im alot organic foods yoga alternative medicine people like dr.sebi Wim hof buteyko so on I google those but couldn't find a product to sell as a niche can someone give me some ideas ? thank you

you could write digital e books and sell them on your wegsite

You have several very popular niche ideas here. Foods is huge, relationships and sex are giants, and anything organic or alternative should have lots of options.

The first thing that came to mind was books. Amazon has a tremendous selection of books on all of your topics. I think once you start checking one product to sell, others will become obvious. Just take time to look and I know you'll discover many more.

I know this might sound disrespectful and I dont mean it to be this way but I was thinking maybe sex toys ? I know alot of people are into that because I dont think I can make much money selling books if your not offended id love to know what you think thank you.:)

I actually took a look at this market early on. I satisfied myself that I could find good sources for clothing and toys and books :-), but put it on hold. I may still go back to it later. There's an old advertising saying that "nothing sells like sex." It's still true. There's room here for good, factual information on all things related to sex too. You certainly shouldn't run out of topics for posts! If working in this topic will give you the most joy, go for it!

By the way, Amazon got their start selling nothing but books. You just have to be old enough to remember when they were just getting started.

Thank you so much for the tips and info but one more question I was having a look at Ali express earlier
and there were many categories related to sex toys so the question is should I choose one specific category to be my niche say for example ( Vibrators ) or can my website include different toys and different categories to choose from ? :)
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - there are some legalities to be considered with any kind of adult site. For example, you have to have some kind of gateway to ensure that nobody under age can view your content. Plus, sex toys are actually banned in some countries.
Reply
Nancy29 Premium
I would include a range of toys for the site, and then focus on them individually for posts and reviews.

its so funny many my friends seem skeptical about this affiliate marketing thing perhaps they tried and failed is it working out for you ?

thanks for replying so you suggest I find some another niche ? Im a music composer but I dont know I think niches like romance and fitness are the best to start with as they trending and all that what do you think ? :)

People are always skeptical of things that are new or different to them. It's just human nature. Like all businesses, you have to give it time. You also have to do the work. Follow the lessons and you're going to have success.

yeah but im a full time music composer id rather start with something easy im still trying to figure out what niche to go for im alot into psychology and relationship coaching and yoga and organic food but im confused about what specific niche to go for any ideas ? :)

Thank you I will God bless you :).

Hi - to be honest, with any adult niche, you are removing potential audiences because you need age restrictions and your site may be banned in several countries.

The top 3 niches are health and fitness, relationships and making money online. Of course, this means that they are the most competitive. You would need to pick a narrow aspect of one of these to be seen as an authority on your subject.

I notice you mention yoga. You could narrow that down to yoga clothing or yoga equipment. You could talk about the different types of yoga, but have plenty of products related to it. Just an idea

You've got a lot of great help already but, you mentioned you were a full-time music composer twice so I can't help but, think if that's something you are passionate about, maybe you'd put a lot of passion into writing about it and helping others as well ..as your niche?
Just a thought :)

Thanks for writing back im very passionate about I quit a very good job for it I recently lunched my website and my first film music track if you want to have a listen but to write about it and help others im not sure how to do that im thinking of doing this marketing thing on the side even if its just 50 or 100 dollars per day you know .. is this working out for you ?

sknnynotes . com the track is called ( moonlight ).

Wealthy Affiliate works for everyone who practices what they learn. There are no shortcuts to making money online.

As you keep going on the training you will learn many things you may not have even thought of...

An example: Your track moonlight. You can charge a fee for people to use your soundtracks in their videos etc.!

Be careful about just posting your site in comments as it is considered spam in general. You are just on level one of training but, as you move forward you will find the places here where you can share your website for feedback (on the site itself) and, another place for receiving comments on your music and, your site :)

I'm not discouraging you from trying any other niche you choose. I'm just going by the way you sound so passionate about what you already do full-time.

You wrote; " but to write about it and help others I'm not sure how to do that" that's exactly what you will learn about when you continue your training.

A final note: remember you will always be able to ask questions every step of the way, you are supported here.

Blessings, fyre

My life, ever since I was a little kid, has been surrounded by custom cars and racing. I have done body work and painted cars since I was at a very young age and I really would love to have automotive paint, high end auto paint guns or aftermarket car audio. Torn on what would be the best one to go with or go with all of it? Anyone got some advice or comments for me?
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - the first 2 would fit well together, but with car audio, you would be targeting a different audience, and that should be a separate website.

Hi ! My idea for a niche is health: clean eating specifically. I wonder however what I could promote as product though as the main concept of clean eating is healthy natural non-processed food. So it’s not product based...

Does anyone has thoughts or tips for this? Is it a good niche?

I’m passionate about this topic as it helped me turn my life around (lost 25kg in a year / no longer sick / more energy / etc )

there are plenty of products to recommend around clean eating, there are books there are DVDs and also you could recommend juicing products, smoothie makers etc.

There are many ways to monetize this niche:

meal kits & prepared meals
healthy snacks from Amazon
recipe books
clean eating or weight loss guides (videos, PDFs, etc)
weight loss membership websites

There are also plenty of ways to make money without "selling" anything. Information can always be monetized!

Hello everyone,

I am going through the training and have run into a snag. I am in step 6 of lesson 1 and have activated the SEO plugin. Now that I am at the instructions of writing in the name of my site, and writing a description of what is on my site, I do not know what to write because I do not yet have any product to advertise. I actually do not even know what product I will be able to find to put on my site.
So, how do I complete this step?

Wendy

Hi - your site should not be based entirely on products you will be promoting, it should also have useful information on the niche subject you have chosen.

So, for example, if you have chosen travel for seniors as your niche, then your site description could be "helping seniors travel more comfortably".

Did you go through the choose a niche training? You need to find a niche that you're passionate about first.

My niche is Pet Care but I would need to know exactly what pet product I am going to sell because Pet Care is too broad of a subject. I do not believe I will be able to find a seller that would be paying a commission on ALL of their products. That is why I believe I will have to know what product I am going to be promoting in order to be able to write a description. I am just going to leave it blank until I can have a product to write about. Problem solved!!

Thank you for your input.
