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).

For my template when I go to add widgets It didn't work as simple as the video. it says things like "Block" and "HTML" and I am confused by that. Also, I am trying to figure out how to change my website name to capital letters and remove the words "just another word press site" under the Page name.

Hi

You may install the classic widgets plugin and with the classic editor.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-sidebars/
https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-widgets/

Initially you may download to your PC and then upload .zip files to your WordPress sites back office.

Or go to Plugins > Add new, input classic widgets, install and activate.

However in the standard view you may click the plus to add something or the three dots and choose to remove a block from the drop down menu.

-----------------
If title and tagline (Just another WordPress site), settings > general edit and save changes.

Block refers to the WordPress editor style.

Wordpress tries to make creating post layouts and content easier for those who are not technical, but there is a new vocabulary to learn.

Here's the purpose of a WordPress Block.
Blocks are the components for adding content in the WordPress block editor. There are many different block types available for you to use.

Here's a link with details.
https://wordpress.com/support/wordpress-editor/blocks/#:~:text=Blocks are the components for,about how to add blocks.

This link about has a list of the blocks that are available. The main WordPress Editor guide has information about how to add blocks.

HTML is the language used for the blocks.
Wkipedia defines it as
The HyperText Markup Language, or HTML is the standard markup language for documents designed to be displayed in a web browser.

It takes time to learn how to use them. But the more one uses them the easier it is. We have had to learn how to use Wordpress blocks too because when we started with WA we had to learn HTML.

Learning is part of being an affiliate marketer and the more that is learned the easier it is to navigate and succeed.

Well that was disappointing. Every video I have watched for the last 2 days have told you that premium was completely optional. Then what happens I finally reach level 2 and you have to buy the premium membership to unlock it. I was almost convinced that this was something that would actually work. $50/month is a phone bill that could be paid versus spending on something you are unsure of. I thought this website was different the videos said you could create one website being a starter member. which I was perfectly fine with, I thought i would start the first one and if it worked I would upgrade.They did not say you would have to upgrade in order to finish it. I am so disappointed.

Hi

You could remain a starter indefinitely and your siterubix subdomain remains valid for six months from day signing up to the platform, giving you time to build content.

However the learning curve would be steeper as communications with the platform ceases up in 7 days from time signing up, you will not have access to coaching and sound advice.

It can take 3 - 6 months to see any income. This is a long term commitment and takes months of consistent work For the first seven days you can test drive platform limited premium access to see if it fits with your business needs and objectives.

WA is a learning platform that teaches us how to build a progressive successful site for affiliate marketing. Please follow the training and apply what is taught all is explained within the lessons, ticking checklists at the bottom, tasks asked of you to complete in order to set up properly and guide you through the process.

Or $49 first month then $99 monthly afterwards for premium plus + tier subscribers. Premium plus can also host up to 50 premium sites.

You may start with a siterubix subdomain around a focused niche and build up content and until you are satisfied with your niche and name, down the line have your own dot com, as some affiliate programs do not work with a subdomain. Cost of which is $15 yearly each privacy included. You can then move your siterubix to your dot com applying the move feature found within the site manager which is an easy process.

No Offense meant to anyone. And please no one get mad at me. I am trying to help a disappointed Member.

I highly suggest what you do; click the magnifying glass in the top right menu; put in Kyle and go from there.

After that; do a second search for Carson. You should talk to them both.

If you are unhappy about something here; for sure they are the ones to talk to. They can explain whatever you feel is wrong here.

As said; trying to help out an unhappy Member. Please no one get mad at me. Trying to help.

We can assure you WA is not a scheme. But it tt takes a lot of work and dedication to succeed. The training teaches what is needed to succeed.

WA is a very friendly, helpful and active community. We like to help new comers achieve success.

The way to learn the online process is to complete the Online Entrepreneur Training which is a self-managed program. You can do it at your pace. When you have questions, you can ask them in the comments section after each lesson.

When you come to lesson 3 and choose a niche, ask questions so you get started in the right direction.

Here's a summary of the process taught by the training.

Success online is broken down into 4 basic steps. How to Create an Online Business - The 4 Steps It looks like this: Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs signing up for and adding affiliate links ete)

This applies in absolutely every niche and as you work through the training here at WA, you are going to be walked through this exact process. This is fundamental for ANY success online.

A niche is something you feel super excited to write about, a skill you have attained, something that resonates with you. You will want to be focused on one niche. What is it that you want to help a group of people with or what problem do you want to help them solve (group could be age, gender, location, experience level, degree or type of need, etc.)

We do wish you well.

I would suggest for the start; just follow the training; do all the training you can. And see what happens? That is what I am telling you. Just do the training.

And Experienced Members say to start with OEC. Once you click Training in the top left menu; you will know what that is. You can do AB later.

If still not satisfied? Please ask again? Or wait for Other Members to answer.

As I follow the training video I find that I'm confused. I know of no other means of clearing up confusion but to re watch the video again.

Is that the most productive way or should I complete the whole certification program first and then if I'm confused repeat the whole of the certification process?

When you first start it may sound confusing and it is a good idea to watch the initial videos more than once. We did. Something takes time to understand.

Do you do shopping on the internet. If yes, then think of the process you go through. For example if I wanted to buy the best athletic shoes, I would search the internet for some shoe reviews. Those reviews found in websites are usually written by affiliate marketers. Affiliate marketers seek to help people in need of information. You are being taught what you can do to become one of those affiliate marketers for a niche you are very passionate about, know something about and can help people with. The training will make sense as time goes on. Give it time.

Hi

I would run at own pace, part studying (watching) and part doing. You can replay the videos as many times as you want.

Ticking checklists bottom of lessons, tasks asked of you to complete in order to set up properly and guide you through the process.

Discussing your confusion and challenges with the community help a lot.

Where are you in the training? Have you figured out your niche yet?

Would be nice to hear how you are getting along. Much obliged and best wishes.
