Building Your Website – 30 seconds!

Your website is the foundation of your business. It is where you will build your unique brand, form trust with your website subscribers, and, ultimately, where you will be prompting products or services for generating an income online.

The SiteBuilder platform at Wealthy Affiliate is so simplistic, yet advanced in the industry. It will take you less than 30 seconds to get a fully operational, profit ready WordPress website up and running.

Building Your Website for FREE – The 4 Easy Steps building your first website

There are four very simple, easy to follow steps in the SiteRubix website building process I will walk you through each one step by step. 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 You Want Build

There are two options here for building your first website. The first option is a FREE website. The second option is on your own domain. Ideally, you will have your own domain, but that can come with time.

One of the many great things about Wealthy Affiliate is you can register your domains right within Wealthy Affiliate’s state of the art SiteDomains platform. This will allow you to instantly set up your own domain for personal use and get started right away.

As a Starter member you will be building your website on the siterubix.com domain, which is a completely free website. Starter members can build and host up to 2 FREE websites!

Here’s where things start to get good. As a Premium member, you can build and host up to 25 free websites and can create 25 sites on your own domains. That’s a total of 50 websites! Having the ability to create this many website domains should be more than adequate to drive a multi-million-dollar business over time.

For the sake of this training, we are going to choose “On a free domain”.

 Siterubix free website builder

But not to worry. 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. It’s a good idea start off with a free website and then move it to your own domain later.

Step 2: Choose a Domain Name for Your Website

In this step, I will choose a name for my website and place it in the “domain name” field. This will be my website URL and my brand moving forward.

As you can see below, I have added my brand “Stellar Affiliate Group” into the domain field.

When you type in your domain, it will let you know if it is available or not. In the example above, the domain was available. 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 “stellaraffiliategroup.com”.

Step 3: Choose a Website Name

The name of your website should match your domain, but it needs to be grammatically correct (with proper spacing). You can see below my example of this:

Oh, and don’t stress out much here if you are struggling or can’t come up with a name. You’ll be able to change this at any time.

Here is an Example: 

Domain: stellaraffiliategroup.com

Title: Stellar Affiliate Group

It’s just that simple. It’s important not overthink this step. Your title will be the same as your domain.

Step 4: Choose a Design – WordPress

Wealthy Affiliate uses WordPress as a website building platform. WordPress is the most popular website management and blogging system used on the Web today, supporting more than 60 million websites.

The fourth and final step in constructing your website is to choose the look and style of your theme. As a free member, you will have access to 12 hand-picked quality designs. These themes are more than enough to get started building your first website.

As a Premium Member, you will have access to more than 2,800 WordPress designs for your website, and there are awesome new designs being added to the collection list daily.

The phrase “Content is King” is a quote made famous by Bill Gates in 1996, and is the mantra for internet marketers and SEOs worldwide. Bill Gates went on to say, “Content is where I expect much of the real money will be made on the Internet, just as it was in broadcasting.” It seems Gates was right in his predictions.

There is a lot to learn but if you put in the time it can be more than rewarding. The best part is you don’t need to handle products and deal with customers.

    This article has everything!
    Never heard of the Kiss Method before, it is very interesting and important at the same time. It’s so easy to start building your business but it is not going to be easy to maintain it. Perseverance is a must and you have to be careful in selecting a niche you are honestly passionate about otherwise it won’t work.,
