The decisions you’ve made:
If you’re reading this article you’ve decided to build a website and own an online business. If you’re still not sure if that is the right decision for you, then I suggest you read this article. How To Get Started With An Online Business- It’s Easier Than You Think
There you will learn why having an online business is a good idea, what the benefits are for you if an online business is right for you, different businesses to consider, choosing a niche, choosing a domain name, and choosing a hosting company without getting caught up in a scam.
You want to get out of the nine to five rat race, be your own boss, set your own hours, and do it all from the comfort of your living room. You want to have the freedom to run your own business from anywhere in the world and be able to set your own work pace.
No technical or prior online business experience required for you to achieve your goals and have your online dream job. Success is a journey, everything you do now, and every step you take will contribute towards your success in the future.
Building an online business in 4 steps:
Building an online business is really just a series of chooses you make. First, you decide what your interests are, then you create your website around those interests, now you write articles about those interests, then you recommend products on those interests to your visitors, and last, receive affiliate earnings from those products.
I know that all sounds hard, but it isn’t. It’s only a step by step process that takes a lot less time and effort then you would think.
Let’s break it down a bit further:
Step one, choose an interest:
It can be anything you want, passion, interest, or hobby. You want this to be something you really like because you’re going to be writing about it and explaining it to the visitors on your website.
This interest is called your niche, it’s what your website will be about. If you’re having trouble finding an interest you might want to read this article. How To Get Started With An Online Business- It’s Easier Than You Think.
Then you need to name your website, you want it to be either the same as your website address or something similar to that. Example: website address – Jack and Jill clothing.com
Website name – Jack and Jill clothing or Jack and Jill baby clothing
We’ll go over this in more detail below.
Step two, build your website:
Your website is the foundation of your business, it’s how your customers find you and where you promote products and services to generate dollars $$$!
This is the step we are talking about with this article. We’ll go into this in a little bit, but first I want to touch on the steps of building an online business.
Step three, attract visitors:
This is a long topic to try and cover here, so I’m going to wait and cover it in another article. I will say though that this is covered in the Wealthy Affiliate training, where you will learn how to attract tons of traffic for free. It’s easy to do if you just follow the step by step tutorials they layout.
Step four, earn revenue:
There are over 50 ways you can monetize traffic online, and over 550 MILLION products and services that you can promote as an affiliate. The Wealthy Affiliate training will show you how to do this too. Again it’s super easy to follow, understand, and do.
Building a website in 4 easy steps:
Building a website sounds like a “scary” process, but it really isn’t. It’s super easy and FUN, and it will only take you about 30 seconds to get a fully operational WordPress website up and running online.
You are going to take your niche idea and turn it into a business, starting with a website. I will be showing you inside the Wealthy Affiliate dashboard, so I can explain how easy it is and the basics of everything. This is also done in four easy steps:
Don’t worry about not understanding how to do anything, each step of these lessons has a video walkthrough like the one pictured below to show you step by step what to do. It’s super easy to follow along and do each step as the video shows.
Each lesson also has a step by step written text for those of you who don’t like watching the videos. Or, if you’re like I am and have too many noisy distractions, ( like my husband watching TV way too loud), to be able to watch the videos. For me, the written text comes in very handy because of that.
Step 1: Choose what kind of website you want.
This is inside your Wealthy Affiliate dashboard, under the websites heading you will find the seven main headings about your website. The site manager, site builder, site domains, site content, site comments, site feedback, and site support. Seeing as we want to build our site, you click on the site builder button. This will take you to another page where they ask you what kind of website you want to build.
There are two options here, either build a free website that you don’t own, or pay for one yourself and own it. If you are just starting as a Starter member, you will be building a website on the .siterubix.com domain, which is a completely free website. This is what most people start with, then they can move their free .siterubix.com website to a registered domain (the one you own) later.
So, by all means, start with a free website, and then down the road, you can easily move it to your domain. This is what I did, I started with a free siterubix website and moved it to my site later. It was so nice to try this system out for free, to see if it was going to be a good match for me. It was, and the rest is history, as they say.
Step 2: Choose a domain name:
You are now going to place your website name in the “Domain Name” box. It’s placed in front of the .siterubix.com. This will become your website URL. (your website address) Make sure this is the name you really want for your business because you CAN NOT change it in the future. When you decide to own this site your tail end of the URL will change but NOT your business name.
Example: jackandjillclothing.siterubix.com This is a starter member free website. This would change to
jackandjillclothing.com or .net or whatever is available at the time when you pay for your domain.
Don’t worry about the price of buying your domain site, it runs less than $20.00 for the year.
When you type in your domain, it will let you know if it is available or not. In this 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 can not put spaces in your domain name, hence why this domain is “jackandjillclothing”. You also want to make sure you spell your domain name correctly. If you notice in the example below the name is misspelled, it should have two d’s at the end. ( and drills) ( by the first red arrow in the image below)
Choose a website name:
The name of your website should match the name of your domain. ( your URL) They should have proper spacing and be grammatically correct. See the example below.
Title: Jack and Jill clothing
Step 3: Choose a design or theme:
Now you have to choose the look of your website. This is called your theme. It’s how your website looks and feels to your visitors. Where your content sits and how your menus appear if you have a colored background or just plain white. Each different theme offers you a different look and feel. It’s best to pick a theme that is simple to start with. This will allow you to concentrate on your content and not worry about making your theme too fancy and complicated looking.
These are a few examples of themes:
At the end of each lesson, there is a community discussion area, so if you have any questions about the lesson they are there to answer them. There are many experienced people there with lots of great tips and tricks to show you too. Don’t be afraid to ask anything you want to know in these groups, that’s what they are there for. They have helped me out many, many times in the past and I’m sure they will help me out in the future as well. They’re a wonderful resource and love to help.
Step 4: Write articles:
This is where most people say, “I’m not a writer” or, “I can’t write.” It’s not that hard to write an article on a topic you’re excited about or a product that you’ve used before and liked. It’s just telling a friend about this wonderful product you’ve found and wanted to recommend it to them. Or letting them know about a new aspect of your topic that you think they would be interested in. I try and write my articles as if I’m talking to a friend because that’s what I consider my visitors. Friends.
Now you have your website created.
See that wasn’t so hard, was it? If you’re anything like me, you will find it is actually fun. I was so proud of myself for doing it. I bet you will be too, and you should be. You’ll accomplish a lot and will be off to a real big start on your online business and have all your dreams come true. It’s a huge first step to take. Congratulations on wanting to take it.
