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 "Calorie Method" 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 "caloriemethod".

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: caloriemethod.siterubix.com

Title: Calorie Method

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 & Premium Plus+)
  • SiteContent (Starter, Premium & Premium Plus+)
  • SiteBuilder (Starter, Premium & Premium Plus+)
  • SiteDomains (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!

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).

Hi all, the niche I’m going to be starting with is mainly Uk focused, the products have a slight variation in names in the US compared to the uk plus most of these product are on Amazon uk, I use to make my own branded products of this type for around 11 years most of my sales were from the uk and Ireland with the odd one further afield. So my question would be do I go with a dot com or dot co dot uk domain as like I said Amazon uk have the largest selection of products for this niche, going to upgrade shortly so I need to decide on this today when I buy my domain, thanks all in advance.

Hi

Looks like you are marketing to the UK and Ireland, I would go with a dot co dot uk, however if global is a dot com.

The preference is of course a dot com.

Just to make you aware WA does not support .co.uk TLD's so you'd have to purchase your domain elsewhere and point it to WA servers should you wish to become a premium as hosting is included with a premium subscription to the platform.

For the first seven days you can test drive platform limited premium access to see if it fits with your business needs and objectives.

WA is a learning platform that teaches us how to build a progressive successful site for affiliate marketing. Please follow the training and apply what is taught all is explained within the lessons, ticking checklists at the bottom, tasks asked of you to complete in order to set up properly and guide you through the process.

You have access to Level One of OEC And level One of the Affiliate Bootcamp How to make money by Kyle Meanwhile I'd ask as many questions as I want to get clarifications,

Welcome to WA and our community.

Also it would be nice to hear how you are getting along. Much obliged and best wishes.

Thanks Abie I think I will go with .uk as that is the main market for this product, it’s something I knows a lot about so should be able to put a website together pretty fast. Thanks for the tip with regards to pointing my uk domain to WA servers, I didn’t know WA did not sell uk domains, which is a shame. I have used Wordpress a lot over the years but still going through all the stages and info on here for best results, never too old to learn a new trick or two.

Sounds like you have a great handle on the UK market. Terrific.
Maybe your can sell your own product again too. If you do you can use WordPress with the plugin WooCommerce to handle inventory, billing and all those customer related things.

When you buy your dot uk domain name and point to the WA servers, here is the DSN

WA Name Servers for Wealthy Affiliate Hosting ALWAYS are: DNS settings
Primary: ns1.mywahosting.com

Thanks for that I was just trying to find the DSN details before I upgrade and purchase my domain name from a 3rd party, I use to sell on woocommerce but my main sales came from Amazon or eBay, it would take an act of god to outrank my products on Amazon or eBay, maybe it’s how I started off so the big boys had the weight of my listings on their sites for many years before I made my own website, still I can’t complain I did ok out of it, no intention of starting it up again it was very hard work as a one man show. More suited to a couple or family business, I will probably integrate this within my first niche as it’s all related, with details how I made my products with affiliate links for where to purchase the raw materials 😉
Reply
jghwebbrand Premium
Glad our response came in time for the DSN.
Yes, we would agree being an affiliate marketer is so much easier - no product inventory, shipping, billing etc.
And it is true - Amazon and Ebay have a big market share.

The way to help shoppers within your niche is to provide informational help including how tos, products reviews, etc. Those topics are highly sought after and are something that makes niche website marketing a helpful shopping tool for consumers.

We wish you much success.

You may point your domain to WA servers

To update your domain DNS settings to point to WA. Here are the DNS settings.

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

These settings will be updated within your domain registrar (where you purchased your domain) after the transfer has taken place. To transfer your domain here you need login current registrar and fetch the EPP code, there's a one year charge of $15, privacy included. One year more will get added to your domain.

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

When pointing your domain, yes. WA hosting is very robust you may check further information on below resource

If you were to transfer out down the line it is up to the newer hosting provider - so I would advise checking package, their terms and conditions (small print) before signing up.

In case you want to check your niche idea, here are some niche tips.

First criterion must always be "are you passionate about your niche" because you will write 100+ posts and 200+ is better and they should be 1000+ words to rank well. So whatever you choose always deal with this first. Second think how you can help people solve problems in your niche. Does that excite you? Your degree of passion to help others makes a difference. A website is more than selling. The focus needs to be helping.

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.

The importance of a targeted audience is that It's always better to target a specific niche with a specific solution to problems.

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.

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.

Here are a couple of blogs on narrowing and expanding a niche.

In this lesson 4 you make this claim "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."
That is absolute bullshit, it's intentionally misleading and just an outright lie.
If you so blatantly make such false claims how do you expect someone to have any trust in your system. I would like to know how the people putting this curriculum together are doing with their online businesses currently. How many of them re first and foremost affiliates of "Wealthy Affiliates"

Very few of us promote wealthy affiliates. Most of us promote our own niche websites. Obviously, the platform needs affiliates to promote it but the majority of us don't. I have been here 14 years and I know for a fact from experience that the only people who fail here are those that give up

Welcome to WA.
How the words are read it a matter of personal interpretation. If someone is completely new to a website and is worried about having to know the technical part they would be relieved to know it takes software less than 30 section to get set up the pieces for a domain name so it can be edited with content and become a unique design for the owner.

Whether you choose to stay with this program is completely up to you. It is completely your choice.

We have been a member over 12 years and believe in this platform. It provides the training, hosting, support and tools we need to do this full time. We have several niches that are not WA content focused. We like to help people with problems in specific niches. Its a great way to do something worthwhile.

Choosing a niche is a personal choice.
The better you know a niche before starting a website, the easier it is and the less research needed. Many people who come to WA do not know anything about affiliate marketing and WA so it is easier to start with a known niche.

WA is certainly worthy of being promoted. We have many members who choose WA affiliate marketing as their niche and earn 5 and 6 figure incomes. There are many people who want to learn how to do affiliate marketing and WA is a terrific way and safe way to learn without being scammed.

WA publishes their membership types. Here they are.

I take written words literally the text states "It is going to take less than 30 seconds to get a fully operational, profit ready Wordpress website up and running online." Why the over exaggeration.?
This stuff is technical so accuracy maters. But the fact that prior to that ridiculous statement you are told that whatever niche you choose will be profitable. I'm sorry but that is just wrong advice unless you don't care about someone wasting the effort building a site that no one visits, or that the competition for the keywords is to high to get enough visitors to make any money.
People sign up here to learn how to build a successful internet business, many are quite upfront about being clueless. So starting off without researching the niche and keywords to gauge your potential for success does nothing to alleviate the risk of failing. You might as well go shoot craps.
Now I have only read through lesson 4 entirely, but just these two aspects of the advice or guidance that is being given, do not instill any confidence in the lessons, I don't see any reason to continue with this program. There are more out there I'm sure that some aren't as good, but I'll wager some are better.
I will give WA props on there automated systems though. I have so many emails now im going to have to block the site.

I have couple of questions regarding the website pages and the content.
1 - The example in the video shows a website with many pages. I know we can build a website with as many pages as we want, but what if I want to just create a simple landing page. How do I go about creating that?
2 - Second question is on the content. What if I'm not a creative writer and I'm not so keen in writing as much? I'm not so keen in creating content on YouTube either. What other options do I have to engage with my audience?

Hi

I would set up my site to a static page vs latest blog posts which you can do in Settings > Reading

Also input "Landing Page" and/or mag in the magnifying glass top menu for many resources

It is not that difficult to create content especially if you are passionate about your niche. It would come naturally and is it all the fuel which would keep you going despite all odds and challenges along the path.

I'd keep it simple, pretty much like explaining something to a friend, you can start off writing about whatever comes to mind eventually arousing interest to more focused writing.

You can utilize Grammarly which would help with learning and writing, an avenue for you to consider.

Welcome to WA.
The thought of writing content can be frightening. Do you have a passion you talk with your friends about, give them advice and help them? Is there something you do a lot of research on and could share what you learn with others? Do you have problems you have found solutions to and could share with others.

When writing think of it as talking with a friend or relative. You will find template outlines here which will also help you. We thought we couldn't write either when we started over 10 years ago, but we have forgotten all about our fear and doubts. We focus on how we can help people with our niche. So our focus is on helping.

Have you chosen your niche yet? The reason you are to be very passionate about it, know something about it and want to help people with it is because the passion results in action.

Here are some niche tips in case you need to review your choice.

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 website with only a landing page will not bring much traffic.

Informational, helpful pages bring traffic. Also you can include product reviews. Doing a keyword research will help you to discover what people want to know.

As you requested here is one example for creating a landing page.

I hope I don't come off as a grammar-nazi but there are two typos in this lesson. (Step4 after (as shown below) in parenthesis it says "or" instead of "for" and in the sentence "The powerful hosting you have access you here is unparalleled in the Managed Wordpress hosting industry." to instead of the second you)
Hopefully admin or someone can change that so people don't get distracted by it.

I really loved this! Easy, simple and straight to the point instructions that outline what's in the starter and premium levels and a quick way to start yourself on the path to a successful website.

Question: I would like to purchase the domain name later when I get further along, is there a way to figure out if its already being used/taken or even trademarked? Any resources to find that out?
Thanks! :)

Glad you found WA. And glad you are finding the training easy to follow.

See you have an eye for detail. it will help you with your own website as well. Thanks for your find.

WA gives you a way to check if domain names are available using Jaaxy, but want to save your 30 free searches for keywords.

You can use the following link to check the availability of your suggested domain name. http://Leandomainsearch.com

WA registers domain names. Here is more info.
https://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/domains/.

As far as your suggested domain names usage on the internet you can do a browser search in Google and see what comes up.

WA is a very friendly, helpful and active community. We like to help new comers achieve success. The Online Entrepreneur Training is a self-managed program. You can do it at your pace. When you have questions, you can ask them in the comments section after each lesson.

We do wish you much success.

(You have access to it for 6 months) You could potentially name your siterubix.com website your dot com domain name and MOVE your siterubix.com website to your dot com website when you become a Paid Premium member. The MOVE moves everything - content pages and posts, images, theme and settings. That way you do not have to redo it.

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.

Also it would be nice to hear how you are getting along. Much obliged and best wishes.

home furnishing is more of a topic...and a very broad one at that....
it may be worth answering hte question
'i want to help____(group) with _____(problem)'
so taking your interest you could have
'i want to help (group) to make their living space lively and comfortable'
you need to pick a target audience as talknig to everybody means you talk to no one in particular...
you will see a few generic answers pop up with this question and you will see that they really don't talk to you as an individual, but just give general information....

Home furnishings is great broad niche idea for long term success.

However to start it is important to narrow your focus. What is it specifically you like most (are most passionate about)? Who is it that you want to help (who would your targeted audience be?), and how do you want to help them (we see your have mentioned making it lively and comfortable).

It is important to start with a narrow focus so you can eliminate some competition and give you site a chance to rank.

Here are some niche tips you can apply to your home furnishings idea..

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.

Home Furnishing is fine. I will just say first; I have run into Members who say they run out of stuff to post about. Not only that; but you can have a broad Niche and make specific Posts. You can make posts as you want later. So, if you have a broad Niche; you can make posts about a lot of stuff. As said; you can make narrowed down posts later.

Hi

You need aim for ONE focused niche with a specific group of people, I'd go with what's best resonates 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 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 cover 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 home furnishing
https://www.zumper.com/blog/our-top-30-favorite-home-decorating-bloggers/

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 aand 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.
