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).

Question on this lesson 9 - Understanding Keywords, The Star of Your Content

Hello Kyle, thanks for the lesson.
On your Jaaxy dashboard, once you type the 'key word' and search, you get results on AVG, Traffic, QSR, SEO - all the data are listed.
But on my Jaaxy dashboard, once entered the key word, the results are not opened, unless I open manually one by one (QSR,SEO, etc) - see the attached figure.
What can I do to have all the data opened ?
Thank you

I don't think you can open all the data. But, I am not sure? But, if you want to try with this? I hope this helps? Try Alphabet Soup; if you want to? If that doesn't work. You may have to open each Keyword separately. I am not sure? But, hope this helps?

Click on all of them. I'm certain your finger can manage and each click is free. Get QSR, get QSR.

Sorry, I'm being stupid as usual. It gets me into trouble sometimes.
I'm sure you have sorted it all out by now.

Hi - we are given the Lite version of Jaaxy, which means you have to click to see the results. You would have to pay extra for an upgraded version which does this automatically.

There is a lot of preparation to be done first...

Then you write about something and recommend a product with a link.

If a visitor clicks your link and then buys something, you get a commission.

The estimated time it takes to get to that point is 3 months minimum if you work hard. There is a lot to learn. You need passion commitment and some money to survive on till you get there.

If God put it on your heart to do this, ask Him for help, you'll be surprised.
All the best,
Garry.

I am having a very difficult time with Wealthy Affiliate training. I am at step 7-About me page. and I am experiencing major writer's block because my niche is Pet Care but I don't know to write. I cannot write about a product that I don't yet know what it is. Pet Care is a very broad subject and I can't write about pet health and then sell a pet toy. I can't write about dog food and then try to sell a dog house. If I were trying to sell a complete site with all of the pet products or at least a few, I could generalize my about page. I had the same problem with the title and description of my site. I just left the description blank because I don't have a product yet. How is this possible without knowing what you are going to be selling?

I am about done! I cannot handle the frustration!

Hi Wendy,
OK, take a breath. It's ok. This is what the training is for.
Why did you pick pet care? Is it because you love pets and want to share advice and products that would benefit the owners?
What I recommend is giving yourself a narrower focus to start. Concentrate on a smaller sub-niche, like senior dog health. Start writing about what senior dogs struggle with, and then you'll find products that can relieve those symptoms. Like supportive beds, senior dog food, etc. You'll find that you will attract more traffic with a narrower niche to start.
You can begin to expand with other pets and such later on when your site is more established. You have lots of space to expand with "pet care".
As for your "about me" page, talk a little about yourself and what led you to pick this topic. Do you have any pet stories you can share?
It doesn't have to be long. Just an introduction so your visitors know you're a real person.
I hope this helps. Message me if you need more help.
Cheers,
Suzanne

Hi Wendy, take it easy. You can do this. Important to remember that . If you are passionate about Pet Care writing will fall into place naturally. You are to provide helpful information on your website about Pet Care. Do not worry about the products right now. We want to get your website ranked with Google, and you will do that by writing naturally about your passion, taking care of pets. YOU CAN DO THIS...

Is the niche you choose something that interests you? If not you should rethink it.

Hi All. A new Member sent me her link, I immediately was very impressed.. but my question is.
Can one stay as a free member and have any success?
I can’t become premium for several reason, Although I think the training material alone could be worth it.

Wish I could but can’t, not right now. I also I would need to see revenue of some sort even if it’s a few dollars or credits. Anyone made revenue as a free account?

Yes people have done it but is a great deal harder and you have to work harder and be a better researcher because you don't have access to most of the site

Ayo fam, kudos to kyle and the entire WA team for making Affiliate marketing look easy, could never get a broad picture at varsity. Could be of great help though, to the less priviledge who cant access the internet, if WA could allow its users to download some tutoriel vids in hopes to spread it further. Would be a step further for WA, or am i wrong? 🤔

Hi everyone I have a niche, I also think I have a name for website. I am just going through the training to brush up on my skills. Would you continue to brushing up on your skills or get stuck in and build the website. I am an author at heart. and would i still be able to join in the discussions as my ability to ask questions ends in a days time.thanks

Welcome to WA. If you have a short time, that does not matter. You will still have some access to WA. I would recommend that you upgrade to Premium and take advantage of the wealth of information here. Peace,Mark.

If I understand correctly, you want to know if you should do this training or just make the website.

You can train and make a website at the same time. You should be able to find lots of people able to answer your questions here.

Hello Mrs Gibb, and Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate! You can do both, that is what I did. I would train, then pause and add it to my website.


I suggest you go Premium though, then you have access to ALL the trainings!

Would the free tools on WA be worth you being a paid member, and if not there really isn't a reason for you to upgrade unless you want to stay in the community for networking if you don't really need the training here
