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.

Hey there, I would suggest watching this tutorial:

First I must let you know, just try and the most difficult paRte out of the way.

When you gave done that and you wish to tackle other things you may.

You if you're not accustomuch multi-tasking you'll be very overwhelied.

Hope this helps, been there, follow instructions. Hope this helps
I wish you happiness.

This is a follow up question:

How long did it take for someone to become interested & actually physically click on your webpage.

Because your blog post could be indexed by search engines, but no one will click on it, if they are not interested in looking at your webpage.

So this, nobody wants to click on your blog post, could go on for a very long time.

Meaning, no one might see your website or your webpages or blog posts for a very long time, if they are, all not interested in your content.
What is your strategy to overcome this possible situation?
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - that is precisely what the training here teaches you. You need to find specific keywords, which are phrases that people are searching for, related to the niche subject you have chosen. You add these keywords to your blog posts, and Google will then know that your post will help provide the appropriate information.

However, this all takes time, as Google views all new sites with suspicion for the first few months, and doesn't rank their posts highly. You need to show that you have authority in your subject, and that is only achieved by having lots of blog posts.

Realistically, it will be around 3 months before you start seeing any traffic when you would ideally have around 25 posts.

Hi, there's many various elements here, first you must be passionate about you niche. Choose something you like writing about and make it interesting. We have a tool in house call Jaaxy for you to analyse and choose what we call low hanging fruit keywords, you will learn about this in the training, to get your post indexed, noticed and in time getting ranked.

It can take 3 - 6 months to see any income. This is a long term commitment and takes months of consistent work.
IvanBroz Premium
Hey there, the situation you're describing here is almost impossible.

If you follow the training here to the letter, your site/ content should start appearing on the first page of Google and other search engines. And if you reach the first three positions, you're guaranteed to get clicks.

However, if you get the lower first-page position, you are less likely to receive any clicks because people trust the most websites that get the first three positions.

So in this case, I would suggest updating your old content to improve your rankings and CTR (click-through-rate) using the process I describe in the post below: By the way, it may take 2-3 months and about 30-40 posts before you start getting rankings and clicks.

I hope this helps.
