I believe you are surprise about this 30 seconds bit and you may ask, how is that possible?
just click on the video below and I will walk you through the simplest and fastest way to build wordpress website.
Task 1: Build Your Website
Your website is your foundation of your business. It is where all of your traffic is ultimately going to come to, where you are going to build brand and trust within the industry, and where you can promote products/services and generate $$$!
The SiteBuilder platform here at WA is the most simplistic, yet advanced in the industry. It is going to take less than 30 seconds to get a fully operational, profit ready WordPress website up and running online.
Thereare 4 steps in the website build process, that I am going to walk you through here. 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
There are really TWO options here, on a FREE website or on your OWN domain. Ideally, you will have your own domain, but that can come with time.
You can “register” your very own domains right within Wealthy Affiliate using our state of the art SiteDomains platform, which will allow you to instantly set-up your own domain for your own use. If you are just starting out as a
Starter member, you will be building a website on the .siterubix.com domain, which is a completely free website. You can build and host your own FREE website as a Starter.
As a Premium member, you can build and host up to 10 websites (including websites on your own domain). That is more than adequate to drive many multi-million dollar businesses over time and our hosting platform is industry leading in terms of speed, security, and reliability…all critical factors to running a successful online business.
For the sake of this training, we are going to be choosing “On a free domain”.
Do know that within the Premium membership, you can easily MOVE a free.siterubix.com button to a registered domain (one you own) using the “Premium Only” MOVE feature. So by all means start off with a free website and then down the road you can easily move it to your own domain.
Step 2: Choose a Domain
Remember last lesson when I chose my “niche”. In this step, I am going to be choosing a name for my website and placing it in the “domain name” field. This is because this will be my website URL and my brand moving forward.
As you can see below, I have added my brand “how to lose belly fat today” into the domain field.
When you type in your domain, it will let you know if it is available or not. In my 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 cannot put spaces in your domain name, hence why my domain is “howtolosebellyfattoday”.
Step 3: Choose a Website Name
The name of your website should match your domain, but it just needs to be grammatically correct (with proper spacing). You can see below my example of this:
Title: Basketball Skills and Drills
It is as simple as that. Don’t overthink this step, your title will be the same as your domain.
Step 4: Choose a Design
The last step is choosing a “look” for your theme. As a Starter member you will have access to ONE theme that has been hand-picked for quality, speed, security, and overall theme design. As a Premium Member though you will have access to over 4,134 designs (as shown below) or your website and there are always new designs being added to this daily. These are referred to as “Themes”.
Choose a design that you like.
Click on the design you like, and then you
