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 3 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.

As a Premium Plus+ member, you will be able to build and host up to 10 websites!

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).

So just got done with lesson 6 and poked around my back office a bit.

Here’s my question. My “meta title” is for SEO purposes, correct?

What I filled out there didn’t go back and auto fill my “tag line” that I deleted in Lesson 4.

And if I’m understanding this whole process, my “meta title” and “tag line” are two separate things serving two separate purposes.

Is that correct?

For title and tagline (Just another WordPress site), settings > general edit and save changes.

Hope this helps.

Not really. But I’m sure my question wasn’t as clear as it should be. I appreciate you taking the time to help me anyway AbieAJ.

hi im in the custom menus section of the training and after following kyles advice on setting up my menu, ive noticed 2 things:
1: the menu is on the left hand side not right hand side and kyle said this is not a good idea.

2: when setting up my menu ,i only had the my story and privacy policy available. the HOME page is missing.

can anyone advise me pls?
Kyle Premium Plus
Left hand side menus are fine, you just don't want both a LHS and a RHS menu.

And that is fine if you don't have a home, but if you want to add Home you can create a Custom Menu item, just make a custom link and link to the root of your website. Then call it "Home", and add it to your existing menu.

I hope this clarifies for you here. :)

okidoki, thanks for that Kyle.

Hi Kyle
I just need some clarifications here
while doing the OEC i was guided to choose a niche and start a website with About me.
Now in WA Bootcamp course I am invited to start a website- are these two the same or different websites?
Do they need to be the same niche or can be different?
DianeScorpio Premium
Hi - as a free starter member, you can only build one website.

So, you need to decide whether to use your own niche as explained in the OEC training.

Or continue with this Boot Camp training, in which case, your niche will be make money online.

Even if you were to upgrade to premium with the opportunity to build up to 10 websites, it would still be better to focus on just one.

It would be very challenging to follow two sets of training and work on two different websites, writing content for both at the same time.

I have an interest in promoting the affiliate program from within WA , my target audience is the minimum wage, dead end job employees like I was for over 8 years, this lesson was a huge realization check, an eye opener for me & I believe my son as many people I know can absolutely benefit from WA & I want to "Bring them home" to WA and offer them a journey of no looking back!
TheAbie Premium Plus

That looks like a great direction to pursue especially if those folks resonate with you, can connect and build rapport. Relationships matter.

I hear you and I like the goals you set yourself, I wish you best of luck promoting the WA programs going forward.

Kindly reach out when needing help or have further questions. More than obliged.
