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!

Thanks for recognizing the work that goes into creating a program like this. Kyle and a group of expert marketers in WA worked together on this.

It is most challenging to make the training doable and clear to everyone.

Your awareness of details will be a positive asset for you as you do our niche website.

Hi You need create them in Appearance > Menus. That's WordPress sites back office.

You can create a primary, top, footer and social icons menus.

Sometimes it can be in relation to the theme and what it allows however you would be able do at least a primary menu.

Not all WordPress themes have a footer menu.
When you log into back office ->appearance -> customize
click on menu then when in menu screen does menu locations show footer? If not your theme does not have a footer.

We use the free Astra Wordpress theme and it does have a footer menu capability.

is this one of my videos or Kyle's video?

It is Kyle's video. It looks like it depends on the WordPress theme design that we have chosen. The theme I've chosen doesn't have a footer...Anyway, it's okay.

Thank you.

Hey you all, my name is Lula. I am coming to the end of my third month here at WA, I benefitted greatly from the program, the training is second to none, thanks to Kyle. I am loving the community, they are so helpful and willing voluntarily to share their experiences and wisdom. I am doing my own niche as well as building up my MMO (make money online niche) though Kyle would say to only focus on ONE niche at a time. One thing I learned starting out is to figure out my niche, TARGET AUDIENCE and start building original content off the bat as soon as signing up to the platform because by far it is the bulk of my site and takes the longest to rank in the search engines. (rank not index)
Wishing you all well, continued success and a terrific day.

Hi you get a whole month .

For the first seven days you can test drive platform full premium access to see if it fits with your business needs and objectives.

WA is a learning platform that teaches you how to build a successful website for affiliate marketing. You need to read all the information, watch all the videos and complete each task as you are requested to do so. (source: Diane)

It is not a get-rich-quick scheme and requires months of consistent work. You are building a genuine online business for your future.

As and when you decide to become a Premium, your first month would be $19 then $49 monthly afterwards until you cancel

Or $49 first month then $99 monthly afterwards for premium plus + tier subscribers.

I am just going to say in your case; to know for sure. Ask Kyle and Carson; they are The Pros to ask.

Just click the magnifying glass up above; in the search bar; put in Kyle; and go from there.

You should do the same thing for Carson too.

I have been told they can be busy.

To Other Members; please don't take Offense; this is the best way I can see to help this new Member.

Hope this helps?

Hey Lyaad
When I paid the $19 I got a whole month, my 7 days full premium access was not deducted from my first payment month.
Wishing you well and a terrific day.

A very warm late evening from Scotland to all, Well as in the old day's people used to ask the Elders for advice for every minor problem they face, So since I'm also in the same boat as you friend are but I have my own way of thinking even if I'm 61 years old and that is that there's no harm in Dreaming Big so Frankly my goal is to make at least 200 Million out of this Gold Mine. But the only thing that everyone should understand is First you have to sacrifice and I don't mean that you JUMP of the Cliff what I mean is Seriously just PAY AND KEEP YOURSELVES FOCUSED ON lISTENING TO THE VIDEOS AND READING THROUGH EVERYTHING SINGLE WORD AND ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT we ALLarehere for a reason, And I'm sure there's nothing Impossible so just be patience and enjoy
with Blessing and lick from Scotland to all brothers
