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!

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).

Is there a reason why QSR and SEO don't appear unless you click on "Get QSR"? In the video, the search revealed all columns. When I do it, I have to click each result separately. This seems to be a bit of a pain. Am I missing something or has the program changed since the video was created?

Hi Davor,

As premium members, we get Jaaxy Lite where we need to click on the "Get QSR" button. Still, Jaxxy Lite enables us to get unlimited keywords search. That in itself is super helpful.

In the video training, Kyle is using Jaaxy Enterprise. If we want to, we can upgrade but it will cost $99/month.
Jaaxy Lite is sufficient enough to help us with our keywords search.

Hope this helps.

Davor,

Basically, it saves Jaaxy bandwidth and money in the long run. You can upgrade your Jaaxy account like Ferra said, but it's easy enough to deal with while you're just starting out.

You dont have to wait for each one to load. Simply click down the entire column, it takes literally a couple of seconds.

Hi team, I just completed lesson #10 of the starter package, and although I understand the premise of paying it forward and helping others, the goal is to earn an income as well. However, so far, unless I missed it, there has not been any mention of how or where to put my info for receiving commissions. Am I missing something? Please help me understand, ,thanks.

You haven't missed anything. That is all covered later in training.

Hi - as you have now built your website, you now need to write lots of articles for it. This is what attracts potential customers. Once you have around 15 articles, you can start applying to affiliate programs such as Amazon. Then you will add links to products and earn a commission if people buy them.

Hi Romtis as you progress forward to level 2 and become a premium member, continue to follow the lessons you will add more content to your site and knowledge on adding more links.

You've got great answers already.

I just want to add why it is a great reason to upgrade to Premium because then you can buy your domain name here at WA and move your siterubix website there following Level 2 Lesson training.
Siterubix is WA's subdomain. With your own domain name, you'll have a better chance to get approved by affiliate programs and promote their products (and after you have a decent amount of quality posts on the website and all of the required legal pages: privacy policy and affiliate disclosure page).

Hope this helps.

Hey, just a question on keywords. So, let's say I'm planning on creating content about guides on how to play every character in a game. Would it make the most sense to start off with the ones that have the best AVG/QSR ratio (best average with the lowest QSR) before writing about those with higher QSR?
Reply
Dale123 Premium
Yeah, that's typically the wisest plan of attack :)
Reply
JosephRebisz Premium
Generally, yes. Once your site has gained authority and lots of traffic, then you play with the higher QSR keywords. For a newer site though, it's best to keep the QSR under 50 if you can.

Yes, you can use a Pen name

Great question. Yes. Like Cyndes said, you can use a pen name. The key is that you use a name that people can connect with. Good luck!

Hi! Just wanted to create an account on Click Bank and when I entered the details at the profile after I clicked "save" this message came out:
Account Disabled
We appreciate your interest in ClickBank. Based on a review of your profile information, we are unable to offer you a ClickBank account at this time.
This decision is final. Inquiries through our support channels regarding this decision will not change this account status.
No further action is required. Thank you for your understanding.

Do you have any idea why?

Same thing happened on TextBroker. I just don't understand why.
Reply

I know that ClickBank is not available everywhere in the world. I don't know why, but that's al I can give you right now.
