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 SiteRubix platform here at WA and showing you how quickly and efficiently you can build a website here at Wealthy Affiliate.

 

DISCUSS VIDEO: Building Your Website in 30 Seconds, Literally

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.

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 and host up to 2 FREE websites as a Starter.

As a Premium member, you can build and host up to 25 free websites and the ability to create 25 sites on your own domains (total 50 websites). That is more than adequate to drive many multi-million dollar businesses over time.

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 "real deal affiliate" 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 "realdealaffiliate".

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: realdealaffiliate.siterubix.com
Title: Real Deal Affiliate

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 12, hand picked quality designs.

As a Premium member, you will have access to over 2,464 designs (as shown below) on your website. 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.

  • 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, After all this time I have been online I still haven't worked out a niche to work with there are so many things I am interested in but I want to be a master of only one eventually. I'd like a niche helping older people to do this affiliate thing as the way pensions are me and them are going to need some help. Veronica.

Master of ONE will lead to the most success...the reality is though once you become a master within one, you will understand the process and the formula for success in enough detail that you will be able to diversify and build out your business in many different niches. :)

Hi Veronica,
Keep your head up. I was stuck for a minute on finding mine as well. In fact even when I thought I had one I got feedback to help me even tighten that niche.
If you haven't seen this already. I would encourage you to watch it. It's Kyle's video on How to Become and Expert in Any niche. It really was a helpful resource to supplement what is in the main training track. Check it out.

Would creating business cards be a waste of time and money?
On a random note I officially have my own website. My goal is once I get this down O will create the other websites that are ideas in my head. I am excited! And I didn't have to she'll out $3000. Awesome!
To those of you just starting, stick with it and go at your own pace. And really consider premium membership,it is really a tremendous value!

I agree. I want to shout it from the rooftops "Don't waste your money!" There is something better and everyone supports each other and is really nice! I would love to promote WA but do not have a clue as to how to go about it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciative.

can we add video and sound clips a lot of my potential referrals have sound bites that they create and advertise some have videos showing products they create like clothes sneakers etc. so they would need to add different features so that potential customers can view or listen to content independently before making a decision to take action Thank you.

Sure, you are going to be able to add videos to your website. I wouldn't add gimmicky stuff though, when a walkthrough or useful "pitch" video makes sense, you can add that.

I would add stuff that doesn't make functional sense though.

I messed up !!!! My domain name is "all-entreprenuers.siterubix.com" but the name of my website is "The Disabled Entrepreneur". The training says the domain name and the website title should be the same. Oh and by the way, my niche is the disabled entrepreneur. Can anyone tell me how to rectify this problem ??

Have you only just created the website?

Do you have any content on it?
If so you can save it first.

Then all you have to do is delete it and start again with your new name.

To do this -

You click on Websites on the left of your screen
Then Site Manager.

Find your Site.

Over on the far right you will see the word - Details

Click on that and scroll down the page and you will see the words - Delete This Website
