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.

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.

  • SiteManager (Starter, Premium & Premium Plus+)
  • SiteContent (Starter, Premium & Premium Plus+)
  • SiteBuilder (Starter, Premium & Premium Plus+)

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!

Hi - yes, you will not be able to communicate with anyone on the platform. You can use the search feature at the top of the screen to try and find answers to any questions.

As regards your website, you need to write lots of informative articles about the niche subject that you have chosen.

If you had something to sell, what would you say to the person you want to sell the product to? That is what it is, you put it into writing in the same way.

You will have to do some research on line to learn about the product so you can describe the product when telling your friend about it.
The benefits most likely. And you invite him/ her to buy the product you are selling on line.

In terms of asking questions you will have to up grade to premium facilitate questions. Not sure if you can still do lesson one, if you can some of your questions would be answered there.

Hi,

This is a learning platform that teaches you how to build a successful website for affiliate marketing. You need to read all the information, watch all the videos and complete each task as you are requested to do so.

It is not a get-rich-quick scheme and requires months of consistent work. You are building a genuine online business for your future.

It can take 3 - 6 months to see any income. This is a long term commitment and takes months of consistent work

Yes credit card.

I have a website to feature my services yoga and hypnosis and it's honestly doing rather poorly. I've tried writing articles to get people to the page, but I really have no idea, even after checking google, what people would be wanting to know enough to search. Can I narrow my niche with these? Is something there worth blogging? Help? Thanks :)

Hi-how many articles do you have on your website and has it been indexed by Google yet?
Reply
JoeRebisz Premium
You just started, it will time before you start seeing traffic, but it will need to be indexed and then ranked by Google before anyone will find it searching. Those are really two separate niches to be honest. You only want one niche per website. Concentrate on the one you feel you have the most knowledge on.

Give Google at least 6 months to index your site, and then to start indexing and ranking your articles/posts. Then only will traffic come to your site. How else will anyone find your site, Tatrina?

Hi, If you have just started with your website, It will be a good Idea to start getting traffic from WA site feedback like I am currently doing with mine. Organic traffic will need time, work and patience. You can read my blog on how I get traffic with WA site feedback below, to see how I am doing it. All the best

Are you using Jaaxy to research keyword rankings? That tool will give you an idea as to which words/ phrases are ranking better than others.

Do you have in person clients? Try starting a conversation (or do a survey) with a few people who fit into your target market. Listen to the key phrases they use to describe their yoga and/or hypnosis interests. Plug those phrases into jaaxy to see how they rank, choose the highest ranking keywords to build your content around.

You'd think so, but apparently there is a woman not far from me who is doing hypno-yoga which was kinda what I was going for. The site's been up for a long while, but I just started figuring out what to do with it.

Great idea! I have a few, but not enough because I'm having difficulty getting seen. THANKS!

I am just going to say; this may upset you a little. But, if you are trying to promote The Wealthy Affiliate? Check your homepage; and check your stats. If you want to?

If you get the same information that I am getting; you may want to mention it to Kyle and Carson? I already have. And I am waiting to see what they do?

No Offense to anyone meant here; just trying to help The Wealthy Affiliate get better.

Hi Everyone I am Lisa from the UK and I have a niche but I am not sure if its too broad a niche as if I wanted to select baby products can I just do all the baby products and clothes or is it just one product say like prams. Thanks in advance for the help.
Reply
DianeScorpio Premium
Hello from Nottingham! Yes, baby products is too broad. You need to show Google that you are an authority on your subject.

So, you could focus on baby sleeping or baby nutrition or travelling with babies etc.

If you chose baby sleep, you could write articles about helping your child to sleep and recommend products that would help.

If you want your niche to be all baby things you could narrow it down by a more targeted audience or by a common theme. Have a specific audience in mind. Do you love eco-friendly products, maybe all your items cater to a certain fashion style or even lifestyle.
