How to build a website step-by-step for FREE. I don’t know about you but anything that offers me something for FREE, I am more than likely going to check it out. When joined the Wealthy Affiliate Program 3 1/2 years ago it was by far the best decision that I have ever made as far as starting a business online.
It took me awhile to find Wealthy Affiliate but when I did it was everything that I was looking for in starting an online business. I chose to go into Affiliate Marketing, and now I have 2 websites that are doing well. This one is my second website and I am working as an affiliate for WA, as well as being a member of the most elite training courses as well as a community right in the Program that is always there to help.
The Wealthy Affiliate Community as well as the Help Center, has been so extremely important to my business with any questions that I have had throughout my time at WA. Getting you started with building your own website is my goal and I want to share just a little bit of how to get started building your own website.
Pick Your Own Niche Market
Pick your own niche market website, and this is made possible through the Wealthy Affiliate training. It will guide you to make an informed decision on a NICHE Market.
When considering a Niche remember that the advertising industry is evolving at an exponential rate due to the continual development of social media platforms. The fast pace environment of digital marketing can often leave companies feeling overlooked and out-of-date. Be relevant and offer help to your customers. People are looking for products that they either need or want to buy and the more informative and helpful you are to get them to read your content and give them the best deal you can.
Your customers are going to want information and guidance when they come to your posts or pages through your website, so give them that and you will get more conversions with the products you have to offer.
Remember these SIX things:
1) The average consumer’s attention span is 8 seconds.
2) The amount that Facebook and Google ads out perform all other forms of print and radio advertising combined by 30X the amount.
3) 75% of big brands advertising budgets that goes to digital marketing.
4) 93% of businesses gain new customers due to content posted on social media.
5) 90% of social media users look up and reach out to brands and businesses via social media.
6) 135 minutes is the average amount of time spent on social media per day.
Knowing the numbers here, it is vital that you are thinking about, how, where and why you are sharing your NICHE with people. Thinking about the HELP you can offer through your content writing on your website, and sharing that with possible customers.
Setting Up Your Website
After finding your NICHE, you are now ready to build your website and start setting your site up for creating content, that will be able to be found by Google, Bing and Yahoo Search Engines to get you ranked in these three Search Engines.
The first step through the Wealthy Affiliate Platform will take you about 30 seconds, through the site builder link.
The website you build is the foundation of your business. It is where all of your traffic (visitors to your site) is ultimately going to come to, where you are going to build your brand (Niche) and to get it trusted within the industry, where you can promote products-services and generate conversions which equals CASH.
Choosing A Domain
Everything begins with choosing a NICHE, and then finding a domain name that compliments your Niche. Not only is it how your visitors/customers are able to find you, but also allows you to present your brand in the best way.
