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 domains). As a Premium Plus+ member, you can build and host up to 50 websites (including websites on your own domains). 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.siterubix.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.

Hi Kyle,
Please, help me with the following:
1) To place specific stuff on my home page. I'm not yet conversant with the Rubix Editor, or is it the Classic Editor? Unlike with the Elementor or Colibri Editors/Themes accustomed to.
2)How can I recover part of my written post?
3) I don't quite understand the difference between a Pos and Page. According to you, Post is linked to blogs, but I don't quite get the mission of a Page; something about STATIC PAGES?

Thanks in advance.

Hey Pedro
Pages vs Posts
Pages 'tend' to be hard facts - like your Privacy Policy and Affiliate Disclosure. They do not need to have 'comments' left on them by visitors.
Posts are more your 'opinion' about something - your view of the subject and they are the beginning of conversations you have with your visitors and so you want them to create comments.

Static Pages
Static pages in Wordpress are homepages ( a 'homepage' is usually the 1st piece of content someone sees when they type your url into their browser bar) that do NOT have regularly upf=dated content (such as blog posts). They are 'static' and their subject matter can be whatever you want them to be.

Post Recovery
If you have published your content through SiteContent you cannot edit it through SiteContent; any editing needs to be done through your website's back office.

Themes & Editors
Once you have a website created you can change the theme at any time. In your site's 'back office' do the following steps:
Appearance>Themes>Add New>search for 'Colibri'>Choose the theme>Install>Activate.
Elementor is a plugin, I believe, so, again to your site's back office and follow:
Plugins>Add new>Search for elementor>install now

I hope that helps

1) How do you have your WordPress backup Office set up
WordPress backup Office -> scroll down left hand column look for SETTINGS -> Reading.

You will see you can set it as Static for a Page you create or a Post you create. or you can have the last 10 posts appear.

Have you created posts or pages yet?

2) Where di you create your Post? in Site Content or in WordPress. Regardless of where you created you content you must "save it in draft or publish it". If you used the WA Site Content when you publish it you can find it in your Wordpress back office -> Posts.

3) Think of pages as your static content or one-off kind of content that will seldom need changing. These would be your timeless content. Posts on the other hand are your blog entries or dynamic content that gets added regularly

With that being said, if you have content that you want to categorized Wordpress provides that feature with "Posts" only.

I don't know where you are in the training so some of this may be confusing yet.

Hi

You can use Site Content editor

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/content

That's websites tab top menu and then choosing site content from the drop down menu. Or if in directly in WordPress you may toggle between the classic and block editor, in settings > writing and choose which one resonates better with you.

However the classic might reach a stage where it is no longer supported so may want to learn the block editor sooner.

And of course there's site builders and as you mention, Elementor, Divi, Beaver etc.

With those you need edit within.

If you have Elementor installed and activated on your WordPress and when opening a new post / page you may click edit with Elementor button top.

If you start editing in Elementor, then you need carry on editing in Elementor.

Furthermore,

If you edited a document in site content and published it, future edits has to be done in WordPress. Site content and WordPress work independently.

I'd place my images in a document in site content and publish it to my site. it will be added to my WordPress media library. Then delete the “temporary image” doc in site content so that it does not get indexed as well.

Would be nice to hear how you are getting along. Much obliged and best wishes.

Pages / Posts are found under their respective tabs in your WordPress sites back office.

Pages are static while posts are included in your blog roll. Latest post showing first, however you may wish to make some sticky i.e. they always appear top above all.

To do this, you'd go to quick edit and mark post as sticky, you can mark more than one.

A page

Static content, for example, Affiliate Disclosure, Privacy Policy, and perhaps a contact us.
Content has commercial intent and wanting convert readers to clients
Not listed by date, can't be categorized or tagged
Plan to make it an evergreen resource
Pointing AdWords traffic to it (a landing page)
Include it in a hierarchy under other pages by making one the parent of the other, creating a group of pages
Set it up as my Homepage

A post

Informational updates about a specific topic
Posts listed in reverse chronological order and can be tagged, categorized, and even archived
Dynamic and constantly changing to my end-users
Non-clients / non leads to consuming my information and review posts.
Serialize content for more readers, creativity, increased productivity, mastery of knowledge, and more conversions.

Kindly let us know when needing help or have further questions.

I am considering using an interest of mine, the stock market, as the basis of my niche. I want to help individuals with little or no experience get involved so they can make more money off their investments. Interest rates are very low these days so traditional investments are not paying out very much. Is there potential for this niche? Any comments gratefully appreciated.

Yes, you can make commissions that way.

You can check this out by doing a browser search.

Stick market + Affiliate program + Location (location is optional).
Trading + + Affiliate program

I see you have defined your audience and purpose. Beginners so they can make more money.. All niches need an audience and
purpose.

Here's some general niche information that may help you..

How To Choose A Niche.
A niche is something you feel super excited to write about, a skill you have attained, something that resonates with you. You will want to be focused on one niche. What is it that you want to help a group of people with or what problem do you want to help them solve (group could be age, gender, location, experience level, degree or type of need, etc.)

A niche is not a product, it's a subject that you can help a target audience with. Remember, you are not setting up a shop (store), you will be writing lots of articles about your niche to help your targeted audience.

Kyles asks us to complete this statement.
'i want to help ____(group) with ______(problem)'

For example. I like camping and what to help campers buy the right equipment to make their camping experience more pleasant and safe.

Camping is a very broad topic with a lot of competition so to eliminate some competition in the beginning so the website has a chance to grow, the focus needs to be a smaller scope. For example essential camping equipment for beginners. Once the website is established and has a good volume, its scope can be expanded to include other things camping related. This is just an example.

Why should you narrow your niche when first starting?
The key to getting started fast is to narrow your niche down to a specific topic. This way, you will eliminate a lot of competition and get results much faster. Once your site is established and you are getting traffic you can expand your niche scope.

Hi

That's a great niche to be in however may be broad you may want to narrow it down to a subcategory starting out, otherwise you will find it very hard to get noticed by the search engines and to compete with big authority sites. Target audience is important too, who would you be writing to, once you are able to identify them, you are closer to finding a focused niche.

Once a site starts gaining traction, traffic and authority you can then scale to acover another subcategory.

See example blog post below A niche subject is something you are passionate and genuinely interested in could be a hobby or an interest, and know so well you can write plenty original content about.

ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche.

You may consult with https://answersocrates.com/ for further research into finding a subcategory starting out. You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and query. It is also great if someone wants to write a thorough research based article.

For example if you are in stock market

You 'd want discuss perhaps issues in relation to

Common stock.
Preferred stock.
Large-cap stocks.
Mid-cap stocks.
Small-cap stocks.
Domestic stock.
International stocks.
Growth stocks and for beginners or another specific group.

https://blog.feedspot.com/stock_blogs/

When deciding on a niche try narrow it down to a more specific niche, you can ask yourself the following question:

So I want to help people with ____________________ ?

Fill in the blank and you are going to get closer to a specific audience. Essentially you are writing more informational posts so that you do not sound so salesy to Google and if there’s a solution, a detailed analysis review post for your visitors to let them make an informed decision whether to go click your links and go purchase the focused item you proposed to solve their issue.

Possible programs

Or

You can do a google search

Your niche + affiliate programs + location
and see what results you get

Meanwhile I'd ask as many questions as I want to get clarifications,

I need help on building a website URL that's going to stand out in SEO searches. I think I don't have the best Google keywords so I can match my website. I have visibility and ranking in mind.

I have written few statements that help me to work around different niches. For now I'll just share two. But my question is how do I build a URL name around these many ideas?

Statements:
1. I love and enjoy hiking and I want to help other hikers build a proper hiking gear from start to "end" by buying the right hiking gear for dry or wet summer or winter to have them enjoying a safe and fun filled adventure.
2. I love children and I want to help parents buy equipment that ensures safety around the home... (I also like talking about how they can ensure developmentally parenting practices, help them explore safe home cooking ideas that go from 5-10 minutes of preparation. I love teaching them, I love planning nice picnics etc. (I had started a Facebook page about True Parenting and have just been using Canva for my content, but it's a small baby though.)
3. I love essential oils. I also love nice bags (backpacks, duffels, sachets, purses, traveling bags), men and women blazers, lace wigs. (Some of these things I have already been doing but never here on any social media.)

You have three terrific niche ideas here (and some others). Each of your niche ideas needs a separate website (URL Domain name.)

First off. It is nice to include your niche idea in your domain name (URL) but it does not affect SEO any more. So you can use any name that you like. Though we prefer to use our niche idea in the domain name.

You may find some domain name ideas at
Leandomainsearch.com

As a starter member you can only do one free site, so I would recommend you choose the niche that you are most passionate about, know the most about and want to help people with.

You can name your free siterubvix.com url what you want. If you become a premium member then you can buy a dot com domain name and MOVE your free website to it. The MOVE is done with the push of a button and it moves your content, images, theme and everything. It is so seamless. We use it and like it.

Hi

You need aim for ONE subject focused niche site with a specific group of people. If me I would go for what resonates best with me.

The recommendation is to focus on ONE site starting out as it takes lots of effort and work get it going, however once you know what you are doing, then the learning curve would be less steeper to scale up.

Those are great niches to be in however broad you may want to narrow it down to a subcategory starting out, otherwise you will find it very hard to get noticed by the search engines and to compete with big authority sites. Target audience is important too, who would you be writing to, once you are able to identify them, you are closer to finding a focused niche.

You may like to think what those essential oils can do for a specific group, who would benefit most from what you have to offer.

Once a site starts gaining traction, traffic and authority you can then scale to acover another subcategory.

See example blog post below A niche subject is something you are passionate and genuinely interested in could be a hobby or an interest, and know so well you can write plenty original content about.

For example if you are in hiking

day hiking
overnight hikes or weekenders
backpacking
backpacking options
fastpacking
solo hiking
hike in a class
and beginners, over forty hiking community etc

How to choose a domain name

You can use leandomainsearch dot com, you input a word and it gives you another

And a GoDaddy valuation tool to find a memorable name.

However nowadays domains are not so affected by SEO vs writing quality rich content with good choice of keywords, latter of which would rank you in the search engines.

I would always go for a dot com domain name vs dot net or dot org as people's perceptions when they start typing they would typically assume it is a dot com. And make sure it is spelled correctly as it cannot be edited once purchased.

I would not include dashes and check if the domain is copyrighted, trademarked and ' or registered to an established business.

You can use Jaaxy fo find something suitable and along the metrics would also search if the dot com domain is available

Look for searches (avg.) above 30 and competition (qsr. ) lower than 100, the lower the qsr the better. Starter sites SEO greater than 95. Starters are limited to 30 searches.


https://my.jaaxy.com/search/keywords

However so,

You may start with a siterubix subdomain around a focused niche and build up content, down the line have your own dot com, as some affiliate programs do not work with a subdomain. Cost of which is $14 yearly each privacy included. You can then move your siterubix to your dot com applying the move feature found within the site manager, an easy process. However hosting is included in a premium subscription to the platform.

As and when you decide to become a Premium, your first month would be $19 then $49 monthly afterwards until you cancel

Or $49 first month then $99 monthly afterwards for premium plus + tier subscribers.

I've been always stuck on the finding niche problems. The thing is I am passionate about making blog on self-improvement niche (I'd probably have to narrow it down to self-love or sth) Though I always hear that it's kinda hard making money out of that industry since people there usually don't really come to purchase products and they're only seeking for motivation or sth that keep them moving through their days. So the question is do you think I should still go with this niche or is it better to change to a more profitable niche. Because before starting out making website out of it, I'd want to make sure the niche is sth I am passionate about and also help me earn profit in the long run too.

Can you monetize the one you are passionate about?

Are there affiliate programs for the one you are passionate about?

You can do a browser search.
Your niche + Affiliate program + location (location is optional)

Are you sure there is no way to monetize your passion idea..


If there is no way to monetize your most passionate idea I would start with the other one first. Here's why we say only one website at t time. - You will be researching, and ideally writing 100+ original content posts each 1000+ words. When you start your website you want to consistently add new posts so Google sees your routine. Your posts will get crawled faster and your ranking will grow. You will need to leave time to learn new things as you go too. At least for the first 6 months working on one website is highly advised. You want your website to have the best possible outcome. As you grow a following your website visitors will come to expect new content. Adding new content grows your website ranking and traffic and ultimately your earnings.

Hi

"Personal development - self improvement" isn’t a niche. It’s an industry. You’d want to get more specific with what audience you’re helping and what goal within the personal development niche you’re helping with. Time management? Sales training? Law of attraction? Habit formation? Making vision boards?

The problem is some people try to do it all then it becomes hard to sell anything because you don’t have enough people who have the same interests." I'd certainly narrowed it down and cover one specific aspect, when your site starts developing traffic, traction and authority you can then scale.

Hi, I have a question regarding my niche. I was thinking of choosing Funkos. So for those who don’t know what this is, it’s a pop figure that people collect from movies, tv shows, games etc. But I was just wondering would this be a sustainable niche? I haven’t got a ton of personal interests currently, other than my love for collecting funkos & dvd boxsets. I’ve noticed there is affiliate programs for funkos, so I’m just wondering if this is a good niche idea or not.

Here is some information that will help you to refine a niche. You may even come up with a more passionate niche idea since you mentioned you have a lot.

How To Choose A Niche.
A niche is something you feel super excited to write about, a skill you have attained, something that resonates with you. You will want to be focused on one niche. What is it that you want to help a group of people with or what problem do you want to help them solve (group could be age, gender, location, experience level, degree or type of need, etc.)

A niche is not a product, it's a subject that you can help a target audience with. Remember, you are not setting up a shop (store), you will be writing lots of articles about your niche to help your targeted audience.

Kyles asks us to complete this statement.
'i want to help ____(group) with ______(problem)'

For example. I like camping and what to help campers buy the right equipment to make their camping experience more pleasant and safe.

Camping is a very broad topic with a lot of competition so to eliminate some competition in the beginning so the website has a chance to grow, the focus needs to be a smaller scope. For example essential camping equipment for beginners. Once the website is established and has a good volume, its scope can be expanded to include other things camping related. This is just an example.

Hi Katie, my honest advice is to go with your passion.
Think ab like this:
A niche you chose from your passions and decide to write and write and write and never stop writing
If for instance you like/love cooking and gardening then that are your passions, go for it.
Some of the eldest people here told me that in order to succeed and in order for Google to see you as an authority you must have been writing at least 20 articles for just 1 passion, eg. cooking.
You may consult with https://answersocrates.com/ for further research into finding a subcategory starting out. You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and queries. It is also great if someone wants to write a thorough research-based article.

hope this will help you decide
many blessings to you& family

Hi Katieemma. "But I was just wondering would this be a sustainable niche?" Believe me, this is the first thing that comes to every one of our minds when choosing a niche.
However, as I said before to Idowu, first feel the passion, the direction, and put in all it takes to make it work. Good luck!

Hi

Awesomeness I looked it up in Google to see what it was.

However you ought to think what would these products or boxsets do for a specific group of people, who would benefit most from what you have to offer. Mainly who would be your target audience?

And how would you monetize it?

You need aim for ONE subject focused niche site with a specific group of people. If me I would go for what resonates best with me.

The recommendation is to focus on ONE site starting out as it takes lots of effort and work get it going, however once you know what you are doing, then the learning curve would be less steeper to scale up.

That's a great niche (however more product related vs a niche subject) to be in however broad you may want to narrow it down to a subcategory starting out, otherwise you will find it very hard to get noticed by the search engines and to compete with big authority sites. Target audience is important too, who would you be writing to, once you are able to identify them, you are closer to finding a focused niche.

Once a site starts gaining traction, traffic and authority you can then scale to acover another subcategory.

See example blog post below A niche subject is something you are passionate and genuinely interested in could be a hobby or an interest, and know so well you can write plenty original content about.

ONE niche, a website. Products and programs can be varied however all must be relevant to the niche.

You may consult with https://answersocrates.com/ for further research into finding a subcategory starting out. You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and query. It is also great if someone wants to write a thorough research based article.

For example if you are in funkos

https://blog.feedspot.com/funko_blogs/


When deciding on a niche try narrow it down to a more specific niche, you can ask yourself the following question:

So I want to help people with ____________________ ?

Fill in the blank and you are going to get closer to a specific audience. Essentially you are writing more informational posts so that you do not sound so salesy to Google and if there’s a solution, a detailed analysis review post for your visitors to let them make an informed decision whether to go click your links and go purchase the focused item you proposed to solve their issue.
