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).

Hey WA community, I joined WA in 2014 with a premium membership and posted my goals at that time. In 2016 I cancelled my membership after my website was destroyed by a vicious virus (my fault!)

Fast forward......I just rejoined WA on January 3, 2022, with a premium membership. I notice that my previous goals are still posted and I would like to post my new goals. How do I delete the old ones and add new ones? It's been awhile and I've forgotton a lot of "how to's". Thanks in advance

Hi all, I have been away from WA for an insane amount of time! But have always paid my subs diligently through the years to somehow remain in contact...but without taking any action though.
Travelling (Travelling spouse ) the world with my wife who is in the foreign service of The Netherlands. We have resided in 7 countries so far and are about to relocate to our 8th by mid-2022. Most of the countries are not your average holiday destinations and so I have discovered the value of a VPN! I now no longer have any daily obligations so at long last, it's my time... 2022 will be a great start to complete my Bootcamp training and to take it into the future in order to help millions of people out there realize their hopes and dreams. My wish is to have 3 websites eventually.
Allow me to wish you all here at WA a highly successful and prosperous 2022...WA IS SIMPLY THE BEST!

Take care................... Johan

A little over a year ago I started working on blogging and affiliate marketing so its not totally foreign to me. I had to put it on hold and trying to start again. Does Lesson 3: Making Money, cover finding affiliate programs and using your blog/site to link to recommended products? It would be helpful to see a syllabus of the course before upgrading.

Hi

Totally yes.

I am afraid that's not possible. We are members just like you and management guidelines, hope you can understand.

However, you can always direct your question to Kyle on their profile page

you can get to see some more of what each level contains by clicking on the online entrepreneur certification at the top left and selecting the different levels...
remember this course is catering for every niche so it cannot be specific to each niche...
it will give guidelines of what works and the very fine details you will need to work out....
it does give you a structured approach to building your business...
but is not something to race through...
have fun

Hi Kyle...
another great video.. thank you. Things are becoming clearer at this point. Its not actually as complicated as I had envisioned..

For now the only question I have, are regarding plugins for a theme I've chosen for my website... Will this be covered In the upcoming lessons or?
Reply
AbieAJ Premium Plus
HI

If you have selected a theme that want to install plugins you may or may do so, they are there to aid your template.

However if you do, note them down in case you do not like the theme and wants to change it. You'd know what to uninstall.

Hi

You may want to zoom out if you can. You can reset your pw in site manager

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites

Sometimes when we copy and paste, we tend to add a space, best if you input manually.

If issue persists, you may like to contact support

Hello AbieAJ
I’ve not been able to zoom out or reset page view in site manager to make viewing more easy on my iPhone.
I have gone back over the menus and navigation training video, just to reinforce my learning for actioning this task.
I’ll attempt to set up the menu and remove some of the widgets on my website again.

One more question, can I access my WordPress account using the back office admin for my website on WA?

Thanks
Ruth

No Offense meant; trying to help. But, I would just say; until you can get your laptop fixed? If you want to?

If you have the money? You might consider buying a new Laptop on Amazon or E Bay? Just a suggestion. Trying not to Offend; trying to help.

Hope this helps and encourages?
