A Quick Website Overview
- Choose a name for your website and a niche market
- Choose a theme page
- Building out your website and adding content
1. What Niche will you Choose
There is a lot of discussion about choosing a niche and the best advice I can give you is choose something that really interests you. Maybe you want a website to promote the business you already work in or you have a hobby that you dream about. To make money online you will be writing a lot of reviews and posts on the problems people want to solve. So it is important to choose a topic that you have views on.
You don’t need to be an expert in your niche (you can research) but it will help to have a real passion for your topic. If you are a keen gardener you will be writing about plants and tools for the garden. Do you breed dogs, then you will know the best whelping beds and products to feed puppies. Maybe, you love vintage cars and can talk for hours on parts and design.
Perhaps you want to review software products available for people to build their business. Guitars and music may be the best hobby that you enjoy. There is a world of opportunity!
Many people start websites because they want to make money and that’s fine but you will need to build a service of help and knowledge for people to read and buy from you.

Choosing a Domain Name
Once you choose and pay for a domain name you will have it for life. Best to create a name that is indicative of your business as it will show above any posts that you load onto Google.
2. Choose a Theme Page

3. Building Out Your Website and Adding Content
Congratulations on taking the plunge into the internet business world. I bet you are excited and ready for the next steps in writing content to attract buyers. Contrary to popular belief just having a website loaded with advertisements will not make you successful. Remember the last time you landed on such a website, I bet you clicked out of there as fast as you could, I know I did. Let’s face facts, no-one likes to be sold but we all buy stuff every day. Some of it we need to live and a lot is what we want to buy. Most of our discretionary purchases are to solve a problem.
Everyone Googles problems and interests that they have on a daily basis. Some ideas are:
- Buying a present for a birthday, Christmas, Easter
- Need a new washing machine, Fridge, Lawnmower
- Want education for job or hobby
- Booking travel, Concerts, Entertainment
- Money advice
- Everything for children
- Everything for dogs, horses and pets
Everyday you probably ask a new question starting with;
How do I ……..?

The Start of An Exciting Journey
You may not realize it right now but today you decided on the first step of a journey that may take you years. This is a good thing. Time will pass anyway no matter what you do but knowing that each day you are taking a small step to reach your dreams is exciting. Your past is an accumulation of lots of small decisions and actions that you have taken over your life, now you are deliberately moving in a direction of your choice.
Make a conscious decision to give yourself the time to learn each step, do the actions and wait for the results. Imagine you are a farmer planting a crop, you wouldn’t expect to harvest it sooner than 3 – 6 months and if you are growing trees maybe a year or two.
Join The Community
If you are a lone wolf like myself it is tempting to ignore the benefits of participating in a caring community. Believe me you will gain much more from actively joining in on discussions than you can ever repay. Many a time I have put an important question to these experienced marketers and received an answer that made me money and saved me time.
Apart from this you will meet people from all over the world and make friends for life. It’s a rare gift to share your ideas and success with like-minded people who understand what you are talking about. They will support and encourage you as will I.
