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.

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!

Ideally my goal is to reach $2,000 CAD/month as quickly as possible. From what I'm reading it'll take 3-6 months which I'm hoping I'll be able to sustain it for but that would essentially provide a comfortable life style. After that I want to rise in the ranks so to speak over time in intervals.

I am new here, and excited to be here. I learnt about this from my friend who is in Nigeria, That was in 2018. I tried to join the WA, at that time in Nigeria, but was told that I could not as it was not available in my country. I wanna know why this is the case. My friend who told me of this, was going to introduce me to MOBE, but because it was down at that time, and still is, he took my own offer, to join my network marketing company, where he is currently doing well. So my question is I wanna really know why this is not currently not allowed in that country, because I also intend to promote WA in Nigeria. I am currently studying at a University in Dominica, that's why I am able to join; as I said, I had earlier tried to sign in to WA while I was in Nigeria. I await answer on this, so that I know if I can promote this to my down-lines in Nigeria

Okay. Thank you. but is this available in other African countries besides Nigeria? I was also asking myself why is it not available there. Is it not time we also took this good news to them? Just thinking.. Because my three brothers in Nigeria will be so excited to be on this platform.

I wonder how I can set up my future page to be bi-lingual with the following requirements:
1.) SEO should be possible and not disturbed by different languages
2.) There will be a pattern like articles
a,b,c,d, f available in language a
a, c,d,e available in language b
( so no exact mirror imaging of every page)
3.) nevertheless I want an easy way to ideally copy paste a post, re-using structure and imagery and only replacing translated text.
4.) users might want to switch between languages, but they will mostly stay in one language setting right from the beginning ( but I might reference things like "Post about xyz, only available in the English version and link from German version to English version).

What do I need to consider / understand / take care right from the start so as not to feel sorry later, once a lot of content has already been created and structures might be more difficult to change?

I hope there's somebody out there who has already been running multi-lanugage wordpress pages and can give me direction.

I think most people will have their own browser translator, so I wouldn't focus too much on translating your website. Just my opinion though.

Hi .
As Diane says follow the training closely.
A little tip I used because my memory does not retain technical info. I opened 2 windows and as I watched and listened to the videos, I paused and then implemented the training straight away so as not to forget it. The other thing is if you try to do something and it doesn't work 1st time you don't have find the relative training.
Good luck

I have completed the 9 training modules and was reviewing my pages and menus when I decided to try a manual log-in. I typed my website URL 'name'; SafetyAtHome followed by .siterubix/wp-admin (SafetyAtHome.siterubix/wp-admin/) but I did not get in. Instead, I got some Google search results related to siterubix/wp-admin/. When I removed the /wp-admin component, hoping to hit my website I received an advisory that the site was not secure.
Any ideas?
- Ron
