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!

The AIO plugin has been recently updated so the training will also need to be updated. You can follow the SEO wizard.

the same happened to me, is the video outdated?
Reply
jghwebbrand Premium
Yes. The plugin was very very recently updated, So time has not allowed for the video update yet. Following the wizard is best at this point.

At this stage I'm a little uncertain. As i understand it, I have two options open to me, of which I can choose one or the other or both, which is what I want to do. I have the option of building an affiliate business around my own niche and choice of product/s,
and/or building a business via the "boot camp"training, promoting the WA program as an affiliate. Now where I need guidance Kyle, is whether or not I should attempt both options at the same time.
I somehow feel it would be unwise to attempt both at once, but if you agree with me, which option would you suggest I tackle first. If it is left to me I would favor going with the niche model first.
I await your reply. Thank you

Read your blog.
You should do only ONE website at a time. We would recommend you choose your own niche to start with. "affiliate business around my own niche" as you put it.

Doing your own niche first gives you an opportunity to become an authority site. Writing relevant unique quality content will help you to achieve that.

Hi Sherlock101, I'm new here and this has the possibility to be overwhelming. Your situation as well. Anything is possible I believe. It's all in how you do it. I think that you should do whatever your hearts desire...do all of them, keeping in mind that life is a process and take one step at a time.

Hey there, I would not suggest taking both options at once. The best idea would be to build your own niche site around your passion through Online Entrepreneur Certification to learn the basics first.

Later on, when you gather some experience with affiliate marketing, you can take Bootcamp lessons and build a site in the affiliate marketing niche.

That's what I've done and it worked well for me.

Hey all - I need some advice, please . . . I am trying to come up with my Niche . . . Would I be better off doing "60 is the new 40 for women" or "What Grandparenting looks like in 2021" (wording needs to be changed but those are the general ideas) I am 59, divorced, single mom of 3 daughters and grandmother of 5 and one on the way. I love being a grandmother. Its so much better than being a mom! LOL! Also, I am struggling with the whole turning 60 thing. How is that possible, when I'm not even what I want to be when I grow up! I feel much younger (I guess that's a good thing).

I've written some content for a blog I was hoping to start, with the title, "It's never to late to start over" but I didn't know how to turn that into a money maker.

SUGGESTIONS? I'm open to anything!!! A completely different road, even. Thank you!! I'm in Southern California so I'm going to bed soon, but will hope to see suggestions in the morning! Thanks so much!

I like the grandparent thing; but, I would try to avoid putting a year to it. I would think you want it to be successful for many years to come.

There's no right or wrong choice here. If you're passionate about both topics, and you clearly are, one of them should be your niche. All you have to do is decide on one of those two topics and like Unamaa said in his comment, put a whole year to it.

To help you get over with this dilemma, I would suggest you ask yourself this. Would I like to help people to be better grandparents or women in their 60es to feel younger? How can I help any of those two groups of people?

In any case, just make a quick decision, like ripping off a bandaid. Once you build a successful business in one of those two niches, you can easily invest extra time and money into a second one. So it's a win-win situation whichever the way you go :)

I hope this helps :)

Ivan

I'm trying to set up my SEO. I get a launch wizard instead of the screens in the video. It asks a lot of different questions and never offers the check boxes we are supposed to do in the video of lesson 6. What do I do, or have I done wrong?
Reply
jghwebbrand Premium
The launch wizard is from the plugin author itself. Even if you get the wizard, once you can get out of it, go back and check the contents in each tab to make sure it matches the training.
