Step #10 of Ten
How to build a website from the ground up is more than just having a simple website. It deals with how to make money online by knowing what a true site requires for making it profitable. To take everything that has been discussed over the last nine steps and put them all in a sequence that you can use to get yourself on the right path to success, I will list them out with simple paraphrasing to give you a guide for along the way.
If you choose to go the same route that I did, most of your planning is already laid out for you in the lessons on what to do and when as a premium member. I will explain this according to the packages for where I am, if you do it with somebodies else’s package you will need to figure out how to make the differences work for you, but there are still similarities that will always apply.
State of Mind
- Know that no business will achieve greatness or earn significant amounts of money without work and funding.
- Be prepared to do some work or do not bother wasting your time.
- You have to incorporate your time wisely by having a plan of action.
- A plan of action is all laid out with my provider.
- Time working your plan in the beginning access marketing and funding later.
- Know why you’re choosing this path, freedom, income, etc.
Start with a free package
- A free package gives you time to plan and lessons to learn to get you started.
- Take the free package and use the seven days of full access.
- You can look up and ask all the immediate questions you need answers for to begin.
- Do not purchase a domain name right away.
- Use keyword research to figure out your niche.
- You can transfer all content to a domain name later.
- Use the website creator and start the lessons.
After The Seven Days
When the seven days are up, you’ll lose the full access which means you will have to continue on your own with learning and planning what you’ll do next. For most people without knowing what and how to do everything, this will only lead to your failure. The website and hosting are free for as long as you want, but it will only be advantages for those who know just about everything they need to know.
For the rest of us, it is better to keep learning what we need to know and stay up to date with all the changes that keep happening with the Internet.
- Purchase the reduced one-month payment.
- Continue with the lessons.

The bottom line is, between Wealthy Affiliate and the community, you will be able to learn from all the lessons, webinars, community training and any questions you need answers to through your membership to get an online presence on the Internet and work towards the income you want.
Remember about the scams, do not be fooled into believing you can get rich overnight by doing next to nothing. Having any successful business means time and energy must be spent on developing it and maintaining it. The more time spent when done right, the faster the results with earning money. The platform with the premium package gives you the proper information to do it correctly. The more funding you put in the right way will speed up results.
Where people will spend their money for funding the business varies significantly. It boils down to how much you want to spend and how fast you want to be earning an income from online. The biggest question is where and making sure your not wasting your money.
Areas For Funding
- Domain name
- Hosting package
- Keyword Research Tool
- Website Theme and Plugins
- Marketing Tools
- Website Marketing
Areas For Funding
When it comes to funding, all businesses cost money, but businesses on the Internet are far cheaper and easier to fund than traditional offline companies. I know because I pay out $20,000 to $30,000 a year before I even get started to make any money with my offline company. My business is small, so most people I know pay far more per year than I do.
Buying a domain name is cheap at $10-$16 dollars a year, but as you read in Step #9, it saves me just over $500.00 a month from buying traffic. That takes me to my next purchase of using Jaaxy. By using Jaaxy, I was able to discover a domain name that could save me just over $6,000.00 a year not to buy traffic. For the sake of $199.00 a year, I want the best. Wealthy Affiliate does have a keyword research tool as part of being a premium member.
When it comes to hosting you can certainly use the freebie and stick with it which is fine, but you’ll need to generate all your traffic from other means. Until your name becomes very popular, nobody will be typing in a sub-domain name you choose. You will take longer to generate traffic without the use of marketing.
To help speed things up if you want to purchase a domain name that has lots of people already looking it up, you will need to upgrade your package to premium. Even at the monthly payments for what you receive it’s great but paying yearly has significant savings and is the better way to go. Monthly you’re looking at $47.00, and the annual rate is $359.00 which is what I use.
Now you can upgrade your website Theme and Plugin packages which I just use the freebie’s, and there are thousands to choose from in the package. The prices will vary depending on what packages you’re using; this theme would be $39.00 if I wanted all the bells and whistles.
Marketing tools again will vary in price according to all what functions and features they carry. For me, I use the free versions that Google supplies that track, all my pages/posts from where people enter and I’m able to see their tour through my site until they leave. They also include many other features that I and others are using. There are many other sites to check ranking for free which I can compare to my Jaaxy rank checker.
Website Marketing is where some people and companies can spend the money for results. Most of the people I know personally spend hundreds to thousands a month using these resources. Most of the people I know use AdWords and pay by the click for the chosen keyword or phrases that they decide to market their pages/posts on, and this system works. Personally, I have not used any of the heavier paid methods for marketing and have just been creating pages/posts and using social media for traffic and ranking to earn an income.
Traffic providers are not something I would recommend. To find out what they were all about, I did an experiment and found out even though they claim there are people behind the visits you’re purchasing, most of these companies are using bots. Google knows this, so they will not help your ranking as Google blocks the bots from affecting your ranking, so you do not improve over other sites that have organic traffic. Google does allow you to see the page/posts you tried to market this way with the visits coming to the page/posts. I took a newer post with basically no traffic and sent 5000 paid visitors to it. All 5,000 came and dropped off immediately. Google showed they did not go to another page or spend any time on the page they landed on. There may be sites that offer real traffic, but I and anybody I know are not aware of any.
No matter what you do when you first start out, you’ll need to apply quality time to generate an income online.
You can create and get a free website and host package to produce revenue for free with no money paid out. You need to make sure you’re in the right mindset that it’s going to take some serious time to produce money.
You will be more productive and make money faster if you invest some money into the business instead of only relying on the time you spend building the business. How much money depends on each individual and how fast you want to see results. I like to think of this as a pension plan to earn the extra money I’ll need for retirement, instead of working all your life to end up with not having enough money to retire on like so many people around us. I want to work this online business alongside my existing business for about 3-4 years then retire and keep living the lifestyle I presently have and maintain my online business.
