How can I create a Website? It’s easier than you think.

I guess when you come online looking for opportunities to make money, you weren’t necessarily thinking you’d build a website. How can I create a Website? That question is often asked… I’d like to provide you with the answer and show you how!

How can I create a Website?

There is a lot that goes into creating a Website, however, today I’m going to show you that its still easy! There are lots of web hosting companies out there that have set it up in such a way that you more or less choose the name i.e. yourwebname.com and then pick from a template of what you want the site to look like. After choosing your template you would simply enter information such as an ‘About Me’ page. The rest will be adding content, images, adding posts to your menu and just general content that you write.

 

Set up in 30 seconds

This is exciting and I wanted to show you how you can set up your website in just 30 seconds! I know, I didn’t believe it either. That’s OK. But you have a life going on around you and I’ve been telling you how you can start your own business. Now I want to show you how truly realistic that is. With this quick and easy setup you can see that Yes, you can start your own business. You don’t have to worry right now about all you don’t know! Much of the guesswork is done for you. The main thing you’ll have to do is create your wonderful content and add it to your website. (hint: that’s easy too!)

How can I create a Website?WordPress

What is WordPress? WordPress is the software you use to create your website. It’s the easiest and most widely used content management system or CMS for building a blog or website. It’s easy to learn how to use wordpress to create your beautiful, unique content! Wealthy Affiliate uses WordPress and I can say from personal experience that it’s completely user-friendly and enjoyable to build my website.

One of the great things is that not only does Wealthy Affiliate handle the web hosting but they also have templates for creating your content. This includes access to over 1 million images for free. So you don’t have to worry about copyright or being unsure if your photos are all kosher! Great news right? I thought so.

Here’s a little screenshot from WA (Wealthy Affiliate) to show you what it’s like to start creating your website. When you click on the writing template, there are templates for your Privacy Policy, About Me page, Disclosure (it’s a legal responsibility to disclose to people that your website has affiliate links for which you can be paid a commission), and Keyword-Rich Content. I like the Keyword Rich content as it’s just an outline to help you see exactly what Google and other search engines such as Bing and Yahoo are looking for when ranking your content.

I did mention themes and templates. I just wanted to show you another little screen shot. This is just a few (really there are thousands) of the templates and when setting up your website you can browse through and pick one that you like and then you have a website. Then you will use the site content to start adding content to your website.

One thing I have enjoyed so much by building my site through WA is that every single step was laid out in a video like the one you just watch above. So it wasn’t guesswork. I just followed each step to get my site up and running. Then started adding content.

So here you can see about 6 different themes. These themes can be edited as well and you can customize all your menus. Also you can choose which plugins to add and also widgets.

Plugins are software that adds specific features to your website. For example a Social Media plugin would add the links for Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Pinterest etc. to the bottom of your post so that viewers can then share your post to their social media.

A widget is an application that enables a user to perform a function or access a service. A widget for example could be a voting poll, newspaper headlines that show the latest news or the current weather forecasts for a specific city.

 

How Wealthy Affiliate helps with all this

With a Wealthy Affiliate Starter account (which is completely free-no credit card required) you can build up to two WordPress websites for free! You can create your own unique content, add pictures, embed videos (that’s also easy) and have a beautiful website. Wealthy Affiliate has Siterubix which you can create your own domain name through. This doesn’t cost anything. If you want to choose a web domain name using a .com/.net/.org then WA can help you find out what’s available and they usually cost about $14 or $15 for the domain name per year.

    Many thanks for explaining all the basics, I am new to internet marketing and finding it all a little too difficult. You say it can be set up in 30 seconds – is this for real? Is it really possible? Hope you get the time to reply

      It is possible to have it set up in 30 seconds. Of course this won’t be a complete website but this will be choosing a domain name and theme and completing the setup portion. This is outlined in the link to the video Build a website in 30 seconds. Thank You for the question.

    Hey Melanie! I agree when you said that this is a question often made, as I am not alone on this and I know this by the fact that I have a lot of friends around making the same question and having the same doubts as I do. I loved to read your article as it was nicely written, yet accurate and informative, simultaneously.

    My question is: How about a beginner who just wants to start on it and is there any age preference to do so or do you recommend it to anyone?

      That’s a good question. As a rule I believe that you need to be 18 or older to receive money made from Wealthy Affiliate.

    Wow, great content about WordPress! I use it myself and I like how easy it is to make a website, most especially with the help of WA’s training courses. I have built 4 websites in the last 2 months and have enjoyed every minute of website creation. I’ll probably even make more! When you have a premium membership you get 25 .com .net .org websites, and 25 SiteRubix websites. Great Site!
