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!

With the one website that you get as a starter, how many products can you advertise on that page? for ex, if there are several products that fall under the category that you choose as your "Niche", how many products related to that "Niche" can I have on one website?

As many as you want as long as they are relevant to your niche. Ensure that all of them should have product reviews.

Hi as many as you like however I would concentrate on quality vs quantity and write high quality original content with good choice of keywords in relation to my chosen niche.

The number of products that you can promote on your website is unlimited! Normally we would build a basic website structure as you'll learn here and then I would recommend 1 product per page after that. So you would have your basic Contacts page, About me and so on. Then you would have lots of blog pages that might contain information about your niche or review pages. Reviews work well because you can focus on one product per page.

My site doesn't look like yours for 1 The home tab about me tab and the privacy policy tabs are not in colored blocks and my search widget and other widgets are all at the bottom of the page not sure what happened need some advice about how to fix the appearance of this please.

Hi, I believe Kyle is using the "Hiero" theme, however as starter and default you have the GeneratePress theme.

You can go to Appearance > Menus and add your privacy page. However about me should be a post, that's included in the blog roll.

And then to Appearance > Widgets. I believe you have a header, side and footer ones.

Kindly let us know how you get on.

So I have a couple different niche ideas floating around, but I’m having a hard time coming up with something I REALLY would enjoy writing about. My main ideas coming into this were something to do with gaming or automotive, but those are both very broad, and I do t know what to narrow down to within those categories.

what you can do is to go to google and type 'gaming for '
the space can be ther or not ....it will give you two sets of autosuggestion results...
these results are normally subsets of the broader topic...
so maybe look and choose one and do the same again.....

same with automotive ...what do youlike about autimotive...fixing, specs, detailing, ....
try to pick a smaller niche to start with

the other place is to goto answerthepublic.com
and type in your topics and see hte questions people ask.....
download them and have a look through them for ideas....
or goto relatedwords.org and type it in and see what turns up in the words....
but you need ideally to pick a smaller area and maybe an audience
so detailing for beginners.....
or as someone looked at the other day
gaming chairs
suggesting gaming chairs for beginners....
or gaming chairs for the bigger person...

good luck

Hi,Stefan.I'm from Bulgaria and I have read about the fake games you have played before .I tried to do the same thing like you, because I am a disabled man of forty and seven years old and I need to find some job in internet but I don't know how .No matter how much the money would be. The life of the people like me in Bulgaria is not easy. I don't know how to earn money in internet at all. May you help me,Stefan or the people around you .I have a daughter as well that I must look after for all by myself,or at least to give me advice.Excuse my English if it is not so good but I study it alone with books and other ways. Thanks and I'll be very appreciate to you.
