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, & Premium Plus+)
  • SiteContent (Starter, Premium, & Premium Plus+)
  • SiteBuilder (Starter, Premium, & Premium Plus+)
  • SiteDomains (Starter, Premium, & Premium Plus+)

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 All,

So my goal is to target people not just for my own benefit of earning lucrative commisions, but to help those people who wish to live a financial free life, to help those moms and dads who wish they can work from home to be closer to their children, to help stop poverty, the fact that people can start free in Wealthy Affiliate is already an entry point for stopping poverty!
I want to make this known to as many people as I can, the fact that I can make a difference in someone elses life and at the same time benefit financially from it is absolutely a game changer in todays world.

So, what do you think about the following for my brand:
1) A new life through Wealthy Affiliate!
2) Creating a new word with a new world- "Unpovertizing" through Wealthy Affiliate!
3) Financial opportunities with Wealthy Affiliate!

Hi Cornelia & ntmu & warm welcome.#
love them all but they are all titles from where you can expand and talk and write about it. a lot.
maybe you should think ab a short name for your website, for eg "UnpovertizingWealthy4you" or " financiallybenefit" something like this
Just my honest opinion.
Blessings to you&family;
PS> love your kids

You can absolutely tie a slogan like this into your promotions, all great ideas there. I just wouldn't recommend necessarily tying it into your main brand as it may make you appear quite biased, versus having your own brand as your blog, then promoting WA within your website.

Just something to consider here, but all very creative ideas you have there Cornelia!
Hi Angel!

Thank you so much for your honest opinion, I am very new here so any advise is welcoming! :)

Thank you for complimenting my boys, they are my life! :)

During the training advise I learned that I need to have niche that will allow me to write a lot about, therefore I made them so long, but yet you have a point, Shortening it would be a good idea as I will be creating a website on it and wouldnt want to over complicate it too.

I really like "UnpovertizingWealthy4you"

Thanks for the advise! :)

Blessings to you and your family as well! :)
Thanks Mandy :)
Thanks Kyle.

I like what Angel suggested about "UnpovertizingWealthy4you"

I'll throw this out there: Escaping Poverty with The Wealthy Affiliate. Or: Breaking The Cycle of Poverty with The Wealthy Affiliate. Hope those inspire?

I kinda have an idea of my market that I want to do but im kinda unsure if it would be a good market to do, coming from a person who struggles at a job that's not designed for an ADHD person I think it would be great to market affiliate marketing to people with ADHD, it would give the person the freedom to be their own boss and that's what's needed most
TheAbie Premium Plus

That's awesome, can see this resonates well with you and through your content you can reach out to your desired audience and hopefully convince and convert them into joining the WA platform as a way to gain freedom and as you say; that can be a great start with the Affiliate Bootcamp (make money online niche) - I would follow through and tick checklists bottom of lessons, tasks and activities asked of you to set up properly.

However, kindly let us know how else can we help you or if having further questions. Thank you for your notes, very well appreciated and much obliged.
michaelw777 Premium
That's a great Niche idea. But, I can't think offhand right now; but you might want to broaden it. You might want to broaden a little. And if you have questions about broadening it? Please do ask?
Your spot on, this training is the best I have seen. I wish you all the luck in your future with WA,you will benefit greatly from their training.

I know that in the world of the digital market there are thousands of products and not all of them have the same demand. In my website I have several topics that I don't know if they match and I don't know which one to delete?
My website is : https://myextraordinarystuff.com
YvonneBray Premium
You need to choose a market that you are passionate about. Then delete the rest. You have too much going on. I would suggest going back over your level one training and decide. You are in the
BootCamp Area.
YvonneBray Premium
In one of your posts, you wrote about water that would come under a Niche in the OEC. I think you need to decide whether you want to do a Niche or MMO.
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - you are trying to target too many audiences by covering health, entertainment, electronics, etc all on one website. You need to pick one specific niche and concentrate on that.

Plus, a lot of your content is copied and pasted, which you can't do. Everything on your site has to be original and written in your own words.

In this lesson 3 of Bootcamp Carl tech to create a domain and a website. I ready have 2 website and 2 domain names. My other question is if I have to create another one or just transfer to siterux?
michaelw777 Premium
You might just try keeping it the same for a little while and see what happens? No Offense meant; but before changing it. You might leave it a week to a month; and just see what happens? No Offense meant.
YvonneBray Premium
The domain names and websites are they held in WA or outside?
RodolfoV1 Premium
in WA
RodolfoV1 Premium
ok, thanks.

Hi and welcome to WA

The Affiliate Bootcamp is the make money online niche, is this what you are aiming for or more following up on an own interest focused niche and if so,

Please follow the training and apply what is taught all is explained within the lessons. How to make money by Kyle Kindly let us know when needing help or have further questions.
michaelw777 Premium
I am just going to say; your Niche; which goes with your website. It should be something you Love and Feel Passionate about. It should also be something you think you can market and People will buy. It should also help People.

Hope this helps and encourages?

I would like to ask you for some feedback on a new blog I'm thinking of starting (and scrapping my previous idea of creating a blog around personal finance tips).

The idea is to combine two ideas: business productivity + online marketing. My goal is to find a niche to promote the WA Affiliate offer.

The name of the blog will be Find Your Flow. (Flow, here, refers to workflow)

Here are some topic ideas that I thought I could blog on:

* How to Increase Productivity for Your Online Business With a Dedicated Blog

* Why Productivity is Important for Every Business

* What Should be Included in a Dedicated Blog

* Types of Blogs: Content vs. Lead Generation vs. Branding

* Do you think it’s a good idea or a lame one and I should come up with something better?

Angell70 Premium
Hi Sal, these are great ideas but can I ask or suggest to shortener a bit title pls?
For instance, for me as a dyspraxic, it is v hard to read so long title - and to be honest a lot of people out there suffer with this and our audience I don't think they will read all content from A-Z,
I just know they will skim & scamm as their are more prone to pictures, videos etc etc
Its just a suggestion
Bllessings to you&family;
DValentine Premium
Great choice Saleem!
I wonder if you could get a little more narrow and aim your content directly at online marketers.
"Get More Dollars Out Of Every Hour With These Productivity Pointers!"
I think this is great and I can see you growing well.
Now, stop reading and start doing :))
Saleem Premium
Wow! You're good at this stuff! That's it! That's the niche idea! It's time to roll up my sleeve and get to work!
michaelw777 Premium
I am just going to say; for your Title; Find your Flow; you might confuse Customers? You might want to try a different title. Such as Advice On How to Make Money Online.
Saleem Premium
Thanks. Good advice. I need to rethink the name of the blog.
