This is about getting started on your new website and is really a continuation of a previous post titled “Build A WordPress Website In 30 Seconds”. Once you’ve taken action and chosen a niche for your new site and also given your about to be born creation a name, you are ready to start setting it up.
Your chosen niche is really your new business and brand and although there are a number of unknowns at the start, the picture becomes clearer as you move forward.
It’s a step by step process, because there’s a lot involved from start to completion. The right way forward needs a step by step system guideline for the learner to stay on track and not get lost along the way. The website is the storefront and location of your new business and you are the owner, manager, customer service, designer, troubleshooter and more.
The very first thing that needs to be done once you’ve chosen your niche is to give the new site a name and set it up the way you desire it to look. Building your WordPress website is really an amazing process to witness from start to finish, when you look back at it after the site is completed and earning revenue.
Building a website is fun
It does take time to build and that’s to be expected and when the steps are followed and the site is up and running and fully functional you’ll get a real sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. A WordPress website through Wealthy Affiliate was, and still is, my first choice and I think that you’ll agree after a nice user friendly experience.
The community of almost a million very active members are so incredibly helpful and all like minded on creating their own website businesses. Every phase of online business is covered from keyword research and SEO efforts, email marketing, Facebook, Twitter and the other social media contacts, groups, ads and forums.
Wealthy Affiliate prides themselves on being a technology company and are the industry leaders in the website development field. I don’t think that there’s a better deal anywhere online that beats everything that wealthy affiliate has to offer and using their SiteRubix platform you can quickly and very efficiently build any number of websites. From any page at the WA site using the menu to the left of the screen, click on the light blue “SiteRubix build your websites here” box. Now click on the “Site Builder build your website” link and:
Build Your Site
The website is like your own brick and mortar store on any city street, except it’s on the streets of cyberspace. It’s your business, set up to help and serve others in some way or another. Even if you have a game site you are still there to give your viewers what it is that they are searching for and you prefer that they stay on the site as long as possible and when they leave you’d like them to come back.
So then you’re always helping your viewer satisfy their search whether it’s for their entertainment, amusement, education, training or benefit in some way. Your website is where all of your traffic will flow to and through as you build your brand and trust within the industry of your choice.
This is also where you can promote and sell products and services whether they are your own brand or someone else’s. Pretty much whatever idea that one can imagine to help another in some way can be turned into a website and an online business and you can earn an income from it.
Most, if not all business owners online earning an income through their websites will have more than one site and probably as many as they can handle, but one person can only do so much. Once you learn how to create, start up, and generate income with your first site, more ideas will come into your mind that you can turn into revenue earning projects and make a nice monthly income from your efforts.
Once you create, run and scale a website it will be much easier the second and third time around.
The SiteBuilder platform is super easy to work with as you can see from watching the videos on this website and on the WA pages also. Although it is very simple to use it is considered to be the most simple and yet advanced platform in the industry. It is so simple as a matter of fact that a website can actually be started in under a minute!
Take These 4 Steps To Progress
In order to access everything related to your website you will only need to click on the light blue SiteRubix box in the menu that’s on the left of every page at WA. I would recommend to do what I did and sign up for the FREE 2 websites and 10 FREE Lessons to get a good look and see if you want to move forward, as I obviously did. I switched to premium after about 5 days and even paid for a year in advance for a nice savings.
By doing that it only averaged $30 per month and that’s a simply super deal that you can only get at WA due to the many members, almost a million, and the really kind hearts of co-owners Kyle and Carson.
I switched once I knew that this was going to be a large part of my future career as I was out of necessity seeking a career change. After I took most of the free lessons and had 2 websites started I upgraded to premium and will never look back except to see how far I’ve progressed.
I don’t see myself doing anything else so I’m very grateful for an honest and thorough affiliate university like this. There is also no upselling allowed so there are no distractions or surprise must have costs on the WA site.
It’s simply a fantastic working platform where the like minded can learn, create and profit side by side (sort of) with almost a million other members. We can ask and answer questions 24/7 and I’ve never asked a question that didn’t get a few response answers to within a few minutes.
Step #1- Choose your type of website
The choice here is simply to choose between the free offer or your own domain. It’s best to have your own domain however you can start with the free sites and lessons and add the premium membership later, after you can check it out first, without even pulling out your credit card, that’s sweet! You are allowed 2 Free sites and 10 Free lessons with the Starter membership.
Step #2 – Choose your domain
Free or $15 per year – just choose between the Free offer or purchase a domain. You can secure the domain (.com, .net, etc) with purchase or no guarantees to domain. See #3.
Step #3 – Choose your new site name
If you choose a website name like cantthinkofone.siterubix.com and use the free offer for a while, although you can continue as long as you like with the free starter plan, you might eventually choose to upgrade where there are a lot more benefits. It’s just a step that affirms that you are ready to get serious and move forward.
When you at that time search for a domain for your site it’s very likely that if the .com or what you desire was available when you named your site it might not be when you’re ready to purchase it. In that case you would choose another domain if available like .net or another one, or find a new name for your site where the .com is available.
I say that just to let you know if you really like your website name and you see that the .com or what you desire is available it might be in your best interest to purchase it for $15 and get the most out of your domain name.
As a premium member you can build and host up to 25 Free websites and 25 on your own domains, totaling 50 websites! What incredible potential that creates for those that take advantage.
Step #4 – Choose your site design/theme
There are about 2500 themes to choose from for your sites. Try not to be overwhelmed when selecting one. I’d recommend just spending a while comparing and then just choose one and move onto the next step.
Keep in mind that you can change the theme anytime to get a new look or when you would like the features of another site.
So I make my own initial choice and then wait until I have some pages and post articles and a menu and maybe even a widget or two posted and then I’ll consider a change, if it comes to mind. I’ve changed themes a few times without any problems, just make sure that your site content is backed up first.
