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!

To be honest... I'm amazingly, 100%, totally, lost in all this. I feel like I'm in some kind of fog what with all the info. being poured out in front of you. There are skills here, that are different from skills I'm familiar with. I think what's being said, in a nutshell, is that we will basically 'advertise' for a product and when said product is purchased from them, then we would get a percentage of the profit. I hope I'm correct and also making sense.

Yup that's right; and I have suggested this to others. Try Amazon Associates; sign up for them. Just search for Amazon Associates in Google. Then sign up for them. And if you have problems with the tax forms; try Kyle, Carson, Carson2, and Site Support. Site Support is in Websites at the bottom; and to contact Kyle and others; just put their names into the search engine here on WA separately. Then click on the name; for instance; Kyle. Hope this helps?

You are right, that is it. However, the best way to move forward is to go through the training. If still unclear go through again. It is pretty straight forward, just needs to click.

I think you're getting it. I know I feel as confused as you say you do a lot of the time. I think I'm going to have to learn to take it one step at a time, learn what is on that step, and then move on. That's hard for me because I keep running into things where I feel like I need to know it all at once!

I agree with Wynette, it is a lot of information, however I believe if I'm willing to climb a mountain then it will be 1 step at a time! We can do this!

I haven't signed up to a premium membership but I just would like to know what the terms and conditions are if I cancel my membership ( let's say after I join for 3 months)? Can I cancel anytime I want? I have done 10 video lessons and I have a good faith of the services / products provided by WA, but I just would like to know some details about membership cancellation. It seems that I can't find any information or discussion about the cancellation.

Quite easy Clementapp. You can terminate your membership at anytime. Just go through your Dashboard, Account Setting, Membership and then stop Billing and Cancel Membership. However, better to always think of suceeding rather than anticipating the otherwise. With the current trend in Technology and World Wide Web, the easy way to secure the source of income tomorrow is building an Online Business. It might take sometime before it start yielding big but it certainly will. Goodluck

Hi!, as a senior (50+) I want to focus on this market. I think it is relatively underserved... lots of senior living, etc. I am thinking of a lifestyle site/blog/products to address the under-recognized reality of the hardships senior face: age/job discrimination, loneliness, discrimination, etc. Does anyone think this is a good market, idea(s), and any input will be very helpful.

I think this is a good niche. The more targeted you get the better, as it will lead to a more targeted audience. I think there's a lot to be talked and wrote about here. If you have good knowledge in these areas, I'd say go for it!

I think this is an awesome idea. Not only will you have people in your target market seeking the info you're considering, but their caretakers will be doing so as well. I haven't done any searches in this niche myself but it sounds like a pretty solid one. I'll let you know if I come up with any other thoughts.

Looking forward to seeing your progress!

Hi, to add a photo, click on the circle where your image should appear and go to profile. There you will see how to add an image. With clickbank, etc, all the info you need to get started is in the training. Ask questions, send me a message anytime. Your English is great! Good luck

I am an English language teacher and I think you are doing a fine job of communicating in English.
First, go through the training and get your website set up and indexed.

Creat 10 or more posts/articles.

Then go to an affiliate program outside WA and use their software to insert links.

When a visitor clicks your redirecting link and then buys something, you earn a commission.
