By following the 4 step process I’m about to show you, you will build a professional website that is profit ready and you’ll have all the tools you need to get started and to continue to scale your online business.
How To Build A Website For Free In Less Than 60 Seconds
Your website is your online storefront and therefore important that you start out building the right foundation. Why? Because you will be directing traffic to your website and you want your traffic to have the very best customer experience.
This is where you will build your brand and trust within your growing community and where you can promote products and services that can create a very lucrative income for you. Are you getting excited already?
Step 1: Choose Your Website – Free Or Your Own Domain
I will be demonstrating this using the SiteBuilder platform we use in Wealthy Affiliate called SiteRubix which uses WordPress. With Wealthy Affiliate you have access to the most simplistic and advanced website platform in the world at your fingertips.
The first thing you’ll do is click on the SiteRubix light blue button in the main menu.
Then you will click on Site Builder.
You will have two options here – FREE WEBSITE or you can purchase your own domain. As a Starter member you can build and host up to 2 FREE websites.
As a Premium Member you can build and host up to 50 websites – 25 Free and 25 with your own domain. Although you can start with a Free website, if you’re serious about building a truly successful online business, I highly recommend going Premium.
The extra training, benefits, features and tools that you receive are more than worth it. You won’t find the extent of what’s given to you as a Premium Member for its price anywhere else. I know. I’ve tried other places unsuccessfully and lost a lot of money doing so.
Now don’t get me wrong. You can still create a successful online business as a FREE member, but if you want to consider yourself a professional marketer and get from beginner to advanced, Premium is the way to go. Of course, this is my humble opinion. I’m only doing my best to give honest and truthful information for your future success.
The great thing about Wealthy Affiliate and using SiteRubix is that you can start with FREE and later move your website over to your paid domain with a click of a button using the Premium only Move feature. So no need to worry.
Step 2: Choose Your Domain, It’s Your Brand
Now you can choose a domain name for your website. This should be based on the niche you chose and will be your website URL. This is how people are going to remember your site and will give your visitor the first impression on what your website is about.
What is KEY here is to pick out a domain that can become a brand. Choosing a .com domain is recommended as the better choice but you can also use .net or .org.
Using my site as an example, my website URL or domain is http://www.Living-the-laptop-lifestyle.com
Although FREE is OK, the reason I suggest buying your own domain is that your domain is your Online Virtual Real Estate. See this as an asset you own and are in full control of. Just as real estate asset, your domain will increase in value as you build out your website.
Having your own domain also ranks better in Google, Bing and Yahoo which is key as ranking is how you will get and grow massive traffic to your site which means you earn more money that you can continue to scale.
TIP: People ask whether keywords are important to use in your domain and there are mixed opinions about this, however, the KEY thing to remember here is that it is your content that will be targeting keywords and bringing traffic to your website.
Step 3: Time To Choose Your Website Name
The name of your website should match your domain and be grammatically correct. You want your name to make sense.
The Title for my website is: Living The Laptop Lifestyle.
I chose this title because my niche is the make money online niche and this can create the laptop lifestyle for you. I choose to be my own boss and travel the world with a laptop so that I can work from anywhere.
Step 4: Choose Your Design
The last step is to choose your theme. This is the design of your website and with Wealthy Affiliate you can always change your design easily without worrying about losing your content. This is one of the perks I really love which gives me the freedom to be as creative as I choose to be.
As you can see there are almost 3,000 themes to choose from. Simply choose the theme you like and SiteRubix will upload your new website in less than 60 seconds.
Voila’, You Have Just Created Your Website
