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.

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!

Well I started. My domain "Beautiful books, art and things". Word press is a bit clunky to use- a wix site is much easier to set up. Hopefully I'll persevere and get through all the tech stuff. A big day- day 1. Thanks for the support so far. Great to have a supportive community. Fabulous actually.

Looking at your meta description above I get the feeling that your website focuses on selling not helping.

As an affiliate marketer your goal is to help people NOT sell though selling is the ultimate goal. If I were looking for sports shoes I would click on a meta description that lets me know I can learn about them (reviews), see comparisons and know which ones are the best and why. This approach is important because you will want to get some organic (free traffic from search engines) traffic and organic traffic comes by writing something with your original ideas in your posts. That's where using Jaaxy becomes important. Jaaxy helps us find keywords people are search on with low competition.

Do a search on your niche and get some ideas about meta descriptions others use. (those that are not mega store sites)Then come up with your own original meta description..

That sounds pretty good; if it is fixed; I apologize; but I would suggest going for all types of stuff to put on your feet; you might include; boots and slippers and more; if your site is set; I apologize. I will just say; your idea seems sound; you should get lots of customers. I will just say though; it depends on your posts and links how successful you will be.

Hope this helps and encourages?

Welcome to WA
What are your interests? Your niche has to be something you are really passionate about. Nobody can pick it for you. And in order to be successful, ie earning money , you have to be serious- not "just playing around."
think about your interests: sports, internet games, camping, cars, cooking,, etc. Then break it down to one topic within your big interest.
Example: camping--best tents for camping, etc.
Pick something that you will like to write about.
Good luck

I haven't fully tested it yet. But, I will say this; if you want? Put that question in Google; if you want to? And if you want? Read a few reviews.

So I've just set up my title and tagline on SEO plugin, is my site live yet? Just thinking if it is live and users visit it in it's current state (currently has no content) will it put those users off from visiting again?
Hope that makes sense, thank you in advance!

Hello from Nottingham! Yes, it is live as soon as you create it. However, it has not been found by Google yet, so it is not in its search engine. This is called indexing and can take a couple of weeks. You will get an email when it happens.

Realistically, it can take a couple of months before visitors come to your website, you need to add lots of content first so that Google can rank it high enough to be found. Continue to follow the training. It is laid out in a specific order that will give you the best chance of success.

WA will notify you when the search engine Google has found it and indexed it. Until them it will not be found by anyone unless your share your website URL. (address).

There is no need to be concerned because traffic does not grow that fast. Even if it does, people will come back if they are interested. They will see your site is a work in progress.

When we started we felt the same way, but now we realize this does not heed to be something of concern.

Hi Kyle Carson or Team Success

Building a certain niche "ideas" for website I can choose - to be effective and more profitable

Question

Is there a free website or free tool that I can copy and paste niche idea into website or tool to see the amount of sales the niche is doing world wide in sales - High Volume or - low volume in sales for that month

find the best niches to make better profits and better habit from get to -need to be aware of this

so I can choose each niche wisely for better habits and for better profits even, if it is my first niche idea, moving forward better niches - I want to select wisely for better profit of awareness


What free tool or free website Can do this - Research to copy and paste each niche idea into free website or tool to do this research High volumes or low volumes so I will be more more profitable - short term and long term - moving forward - I can do research on my own if no one in team knows - this answer or if team is not aware of free website - together we all achieve more by knowing and being aware of better profits so no one gets left behind ..

Will you know any free website or tool can do this ? before move on properly

best wishes

Jonathan

I am just going to say; some of this sounds like Hosting questions? If I am wrong? Please do correct? But, if you have hosting issues? Try Site Support and Live Chat. For sure they can help.

I do not know of any free tool that does what you are asking.
You can however do some web searches on your own and find some profitable niches.

The thing with niches is if you are just doing a website for making money you can burnout or get bored easily. A niche should be chosen based on your passion and interest. Our approach to niche websites is to help in the niche not just sell visitors something.
