Building a Website

Build A Website

In order to share your thoughts online, the first step is to build a website.  This seems like a daunting task and this is where people often quit …before they even begin.  There are so many questions to answer…..

How Do I?

  • Create my theme
  • Insert Pictures
  • Add pages and posts
  • Get recognized on the internet
  • Monetize it
  • Insert graphics
  • Create forms

The list goes on.  But, honestly, with today’s technology, the process is so easy.  It can be done, literally, in a few minutes.

There are three parts to building your website:

Part 1:  Build the Framework

First, you have to choose your domain name and get it registered.  You can think of a domain name as your internet address.  This can be done within the SiteRubix.com platform, which is part of Wealthy Affiliate.

Next, you have to choose a CMS (Content Management System) would be part of this task.  WordPress is the most well known and commonly used system because of the following reasons.

  • Typically very easy to install and set-up (click of a button at Wealthy Affiliate)
  • No HTML, no code, no need for some advanced knowledge
  • Over 1,400 different website templates to choose from
  • One click install over 10,000 “add on” features and website functionality

Within WordPress and Wealthy Affiliate, you can set up the look and outline of your website.  You will need to choose a theme that offers you the appearance you want as well as the functions you want the website to have.

During this stage, you can also create your static pages….information that will not change.  Pages such as “About Me” and “Privacy Policy” are examples of this.

The important aspects of this part is to have a website that has a Professional Design & Look and is Easy to Navigate.

Part 2:  Find a Hosting Service

In order for your website to be seen on the Internet you have to find a place to put it.  Web hosting is a service that allows people to do just that.  Hosting services provides the technologies and servers for your website to be viewed on the Internet when readers type in your website name.

In choosing you hosting service, Speed & Load Time has to be considered.  Creating your site within the Wealthy Affiliate platform provides an excellent system.

Part 3:  Create your Content

This is the fun part.  This is where you provide the information you want to share with your readers.  Writing your blogs, promoting your products, reviewing other products can all be done here.

Quality website content is probably the most important aspect to your website.  Once someone finds your website, they have to want to stay there and read what you are writing.  This takes some practice.
