At this stage of the course you should have your website created! Congratulations, this is a big accomplishment!

Looking back to 2002 when I started my career in Online Business it took me 30 days just to figure out how to build a website. There definitely weren't any platforms like the Website platform you have access to here. What takes 30 seconds now, took 30 days back then.

How things have changed!

In this lesson we are going to be walking you through the process of the initial website set-up. This includes the removal of "default" content that is installed with every website as well as a look around of the back office of your website.

Additionally, I am also going to be walking you through the activation of your "Plugins" and be walking you through the benefits of the plugins (feature extensions) that have been installed automatically with your website.

Below is a video walk-through showing you the process of setting up your website. Click play to watch the "Setting Up Your Niche Website - The Initial Steps" video below.

 

Task 1: Login Into Your Website Back Office

In order to do this, you need to log into your website. This is very easy to do and can be done using the "Log In!" button (as shown below).

This will automatically show you all your users you have associated with your website and from there you can log into your website.

No more need for manual logins and the passwords within your account are encrypted and secured using SiteRubix technology!

You can also find your website login details, username, and password within the Details link on your SiteManager dashboard.

Task 2: Activate and Update Your Plugins

After you login, you will see your Wordpress administration dashboard for your website (see below).

This may look completely foreign to you if you have never logged into a WordPress website before, but don't worry, you will get the hang of this and there is a ton of help here within the community to work you through any questions/issues you may run into.

Wordpress is the most powerful and widely used website platform in the world. It is used by over 30% of ALL websites (millions) and it also has a wide range of "add ons" known as plugins that you can use extend the functionality of your website.

When you install website here at WA we pre-install three of the most useful plugins with your website automatically and your first step is going to be activating these plugins.

You will see the All in One SEO plugin, which we will be setting up in the next lesson. This is a plugin that is going to help you get found and ranked by search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo.

You will also see the Classic Editor plugin, which is already activated. This gives you access to the classic editor when you upgrade and create posts within your back office, which is preferrable (in particular when getting started) to the new and more modular editor. It is going to make your life a lot easier and it is already set up for you so you have to do nothing from you end.

Lastly, the Kraken Image Optimization plugin is going to compress and optimize all of the images on your website automatically. This is really sophisticated and advanced platform that is going to lead to better website speeds, a better user experience, and better search engine rankings. This is already set-up optimally for you.

Task 3: Delete Default Posts, Pages and Comments

Every new Wordpress website that you install will come with "default" or dummy content that is added with every website install. You want to get rid of this content before you can start creating content that is relevant to your niche.

The first thing you want to do is delete the default post that is added with each website.

Click on the Posts button, within the side menu.

This will take you to the posts page where you will go to see a list of all the posts on your website. A post is simply a content page on your site (we will be explaining them in more detail later).



Simply "mouse over" the post area and it will reveal the post management buttons. You will want to then click the "Trash" button. This will delete the default "Hello World!" post.

Do the same with the "Pages" link as well. There may be a few different Pages, including the Privacy Policy page. You can delete all of these pages as we are going to be starting fresh with our own content and starting the build out process of this in upcoming lessons.

**Do note that there may not be both default Pages and Posts. If that is the case, just move on.

That is it for this lesson, nice work! You now have a live website that is set-up and ready to go. This is your own Internet "real estate". You will use this website to connect with your niche and ultimately earn revenue through. This website is your foundation for building a successful online business!

The next lesson we are going to be showing you how to get your website ready to rank in Google and other search engines!

Hi, I am working through the training and i am trying to find my niche. I love travel , especially cruises and i was thinking of cruises being my niche. is cruises to broad to be a niche, as it is only a small part of the travel industry.Your opinions would be most helpful. Thanks

Sure, you can head in the cruise direction. What type of cruises do you want to help people with? There are many different types, locations, etc...and I think you want to narrow things down a bit here! :)

As i dont have a clue what im doing,im not sure how far i should narrow things down, i was under the impression that within the travel industry as a whole, cruising was a niche on it's own.

I'm not ready to take on another cost just yet to improve my site. Can I create content for my site before I register for another monthly bill? I have student loans, mortgage, car payment, insurance, utilities, etc. I want to create content first to see if I have what it takes with the information I've gathered so far. I feel like it's pressure to get the upgrade. In the Jaxxy the keywords were blocked out. Let me develop content for this site and create menu items to see if I've learned anything from the videos. I need time to decide to manage another monthly bill.

Are you talking about an upgrade to Premium Membership? You can upgrade at any time when you're ready. However, the Starter membership is limited in resources (not in time, though). You can still work on your content, but you only have 10 free lessons in the Online Entrepreneur Certification course and 30 free Jaaxy searches for free. The only "pressure" is that you are receiving a $30 discount for the first month if you upgrade rather sooner than later. Other than that, nobody pressures you.

HI Elvie,

Many Affiliate marketers have bills just like the ones you have listed. It is not uncommon in today's society to have a debt burden. If you are serious about giving this an honest try then you will become creative and figure out a way to make it possible!

You can remain a free starter member and start-up two different free siterubix.com subdomain websites to see if you can earn money by doing Affiliate Marketing.

However, after 6 months if you do not go premium you will lose those free websites and their content, so in reality, the only thing you have to lose would be your time.

By not going premium it will take much more effort to find out how to do certain aspects of the business model on your own through the search engines. Because the training as a free member is limited to only the first level in either training modular.

One of the biggest advantages in going premium is that you open the flood gates (literally) to so much more training that will help you succeed. WA can show you the way, but it will still take your hard work and efforts to make it happen!

The choice is yours,
Calvin

Calvin, this is the first time I hear that the Starter membership is limited to 6 months... Where did you find such information?

Thank you,

Hi Julia,

I am sorry but you read that wrong the free website(s) is/are limited to 6 months now (as of about 4 months ago).

The starter membership (as far as I know) is as long as they want to remain a free member (Might want to check with Kyle to see if they have not changed that also).

No, I understood perfectly what you were saying, but limiting free websites to 6 months is the same as limiting Starter membership to this period because there is nothing else to do if one can't work on his/her site. I'm sorry, but I question whether this information being correct. Could you please point out the source of it?

Thank you,

~ Julia

No limiting free websites is just that, limiting the use of the free website to 6 months. It does not, however, limit the free membership.

As far as I know, you can remain a free member for an unlimited amount of time. Now, if you can start another free website after the first expires (I Do Not Know) this is another issue that you might ask Kyle about also.

As I said this information was provided by Kyle.

He has mentioned this often in live chat, so if you doubt this as being true. Please, by all means, to assure your doubtfulness contact, Kyle, to confirm this to be true.

You might be correct if a free website stays inactive (no new posts) for 6 months. But if a person works on his/her site, it can't be true. Otherwise, it would be specified in the Membership Comparison chart, but it's not - I just checked.

Moving at a fast pace here. Completed watching the video for lesson three on niches. The question is this... What do you do if you have created a product that is general in its appeal? Specifically, this has always troubled me as an author. My latest book is designed to "Enlighten, enrich, and encourage people along the journey of life." However, every marketing guru says to "niche down." How do you find a niche target audience for a generalized book without going back to page one and re-writing the book? Do you forever try to market to niche audience after niche audience in the hope that you will find a group that responds?

Hi, Kenneth! I am delighted to meet you.

I go by my passion. As a rule, (at least for me) there will always be people who would be looking for similar passion like yours and mine. The bottom line is the content, its quality, relevance, and value. It should have proper references and useful data. And it must be engaging. What about you?

Cheers!

Hello Florentino. Good to meet you also, and I appreciate your feedback to my couple of questions so far. I will follow you, and look forward to both learning from you, and perhaps contributing value to your life in return. I am sure in the process we shall find ourselves engaging in some interesting discussions. May we then encourage people with our collective and individual insights, and our writings. Regards, Kenneth.

Now who doesn't like watches! You can get them for yourself, for others as a gift, you can even get your whole crew rocking the same watch. You can get a sentimental watch or you can get a beautiful watch to brag about all day! Just don't brag too much lol. When I create my website, go ahead and check it out, use that affiliation money and prize yourself some ice.

Joined as a starter last night, completed lesson one just now. Maybe I am jumping the gun here with my questions, but I am thinking ahead. 1. I have several websites already, these were created in the past with Godaddy being used to purchase the URLs, and Wordpress itself being both the platform and host. As I progress in WA, is it possible to migrate these over to the WA hosting platform as a premium member? 2. Related to this, I have paid Wordpress in the past for sites to be free of their adverts. Can I assume that Wordpress sites on the WA hosting are similarly free of unwanted ads, and that this is all inclusive as part of WA premium membership? Thank you in advance for your answers. Best Regards, Kenneth

Hi Kenneth ... you have come to the right place! Yes, your Go Daddy WordPress sites can be moved easily to the WA hosting platform.

This PlugIn that does this very easily .. https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-wp-migration/

There is no advertising on your websites unless you insert ads yourself.

As a Premium member, you can have 25 personal url's that are yours do to do with as you wish ... as well as subdomains and all the training and support this platform offers!

Best wishes,
Allan
