OK, awesome. You now have your target audience, in other words, the direction for your brand chosen. That is great and don't worry about this not being "perfect" 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 brand/audience idea and building out a 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 build your website (and complete the next task).

Below I have included a video walking you through the Website platform here at WA and showing you how quickly and efficiently you can build a website here at Wealthy Affiliate,

 


Task 1: Building 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 revenue!

The SiteBuilder platform here at WA is the most simplistic, yet advanced in the industry. It is going to less than 30 seconds to get a full operational, profit ready Wordpress website up and running online.

You can access the SiteBuilder from the main Websites menu here at WA.

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 ONE FREE websites as a Starter.

As a Premium member, you can build and host up to 10 websites (including websites on your own domain). 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 may own) using the "Premium Only" MOVE feature. So by all means start off with a free website.

Step 2: Choose a Domain

Remember last lesson when I chose my "brand". In this step, I am going to be placing my brand name into 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 "Marketing With Kyle" 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 "marketingwithkyle".

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: marketingwithkyle.siterubix.com
Title: Marketing With Kyle

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 to 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)
  • SiteContent (Starter & Premium)
  • SiteBuilder (Starter & Premium)
  • SiteDomains (Starter & Premium)

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 (and do so for free).

Hi - yes, you need to write lots of original articles all focusing on the make money online niche. There is no content on your website, you need to write it yourself.

Hi George
OK, you need to write your own content for your website.

You can use your affiliate links (click on the $ sign in the top menu and then click on 'Links and Tracking') anywhere online you want - you don't necessarily have to have a website - just be aware that some websites don't like affiliate links.

SEO will come from you but there are some basic tips in Phase 2 of the Affiliate Bootcamp.

I hope that helps

I am just going to say first; you should ask both Kyle and Carson.

If you want to ask Kyle directly; click the magnifying glass in the top menu; put Kyle in the search bar; and go from there; and leave a message or question on his page.

I highly recommend you do the same with Carson too; after.

I have been told they can be busy; so it is best to ask both.

Hope this helps and encourages?

I'm currently brainstorming ideas about what kind of website to build for the niche. I'm thinking of "Helping others make money online" as a general direction of my website. I really like the idea and that's what I'm doing as well so I'm sure I am passionate as hell about it.

This will include affiliate programs, digital marketing methods, and many other making money online channels. Am I going in the right direction?

Hey
The Affiliate Bootcamp is the (make money online niche) I want to write lots of content addressing issues in making money. You need to see what type of audience (see resource below) you want to reflect on and resonate with you, may have knowledge with them and can reach out to them through your content. I was recommended to do the whole thing before starting work on my site and to only focus on wanting to do your own niche or the Bootcamp. But as a starter you can opt in to level one. For own I would choose something that resonates with me, could be a hobby, interest, a side hustle, something I know about and can write lots of original content. Anything rings the bell? it is important to know who your target audience is gonna be, who you are writing to and once you figure this out, it becomes easier coming up with a niche. Please reach out if you need help or a hand.
Wishing you well, continued success and a terrific day.

I am still new to affiliate marketing. Already have a site that is indexed by google. I am considering to have a another site, but I am concerned I may run out of ideas or posts if I try to have niche that is based on affiliate marketing.

My site I have currently I regularly have something to post. But, affiliate marketing I am still relevantly new. Any ideas or pointers?

Recommendation is to focus on ONE site, I would carry on with my current site and keeping it updated. One we know what we are doing we can then scale. IMO

It is up to you; what I will say; is just do all the training you can. I will say too; if you want to base your Niche on Affiliate Marketing; before doing it; I can suggest this.

Make a search in Google; look up Affiliate Marketing and see what Google has to say.

If this is not what you are asking? My Apologies. But, I suggest you do a search in Google; do some research and see what you come up with for potential Ideas for Posts.

If you have any more questions? Or not satisfied with this? Please ask again? Or wait for Other Members to answer.

Hope this helps and encourages?

Hi

As we are here in Bootcamp, it is the make money online niche.

We always recommend starting out with own niche vs the Affiliate Bootcamp (make money online niche) as the latter is a lot harder and more competitive, you would need to write 300 to 400 articles before you are able scratch the surface,

You'd also need to do the whole Bootcamp in its entirety before you can commence with your site.

Recommendation is to focus on ONE niche at a time, even Kyle himself would recommend the same.

Hello: I always get excited when new Tech items come onto the market or there is a Buzz floating around :) I am excited about where all this Technology is growing into since I could afford to buy my own phone, TV, Surround sound, Alexa, and the way the internet has changed since I was a little girl. I remember going to elementary on my Dinosaur ( haha Jk ). I do remember there only being 2 desktop computers in the library and they were the big beige ones the screen was blank with 1 blinking line and you had to type a code to do anything. Now we hold a whole computer in our hands. Sorry so long but what can I say? " I Love Electronics" ...... I just don't know what subcatagory I should pick for my Niche ? Any Ideas ?

Thank you in advance,
Leticia

Hi

Hi

You keep that in your mind or draft it some place to research it more.

A niche subject is something you are passionate and genuinely interested in could be a hobby or an interest, and know so well you can write plenty original content about.

ONE niche, a website.

You may consult with https://answersocrates.com/ for further research into finding a subcategory starting out. You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and query.


When deciding on a niche try narrow it down to a more specific niche, you can ask yourself the following question:

So I want to help people with ____________________ ?

Fill in the blank and you are going to get closer to a specific audience. Essentially you are writing more informational posts so that you do not sound so salesy to Google and if there’s a solution, a detailed analysis review post for your visitors to let them make an informed decision whether to go click your links and go purchase the focused item you proposed to solve their issue.

Meanwhile I'd ask as many questions as I want to get clarifications,

Welcome to WA and our community.

Okay, I can make a few suggestions here: Everything Electronics. All Machines you need in your daily life. Everything Electronics that you need. All Electronics that you want. Every piece of machinery you need to run your daily life. All Machines that you want.

Hope these help for suggestions? I am not sure how good they are? But, I hope at least they get you in the right direction.

Hope this did help and encourage?

I am just going to say this; to encourage you: Other Members please don't take Offense.

Click the magnifying glass in the top right menu; in the search bar; put in Success Stories; and go from there.

After; do a new search just as I explained; but this time; put in How To Succeed.

Don't take too much time on them. If you are still doing the training? Don't ignore the training.

But, I hope these help and encourage?
