Choose a Domain name

When choosing a domain name make sure you spell it correctly as often when people are excited they easily misspell the domain name and if this happens and you purchase it, you will then have to rebuy another one with the correct spelling. domain names are the way to go if you want serious traffic and also if you can create something simple and catchy even better and good luck finding what you want.

Choose a theme for your Website

The majority of people build websites using WordPress as it is brilliant and they have 1000’s of themes to choose from.

I belong to Wealthy Affiliate for 2 major reasons: Hosting $47 per month including 10 websites plus 2 free websites and we use WordPress as members included for the monthly fee which you will not find anywhere else on the Internet.

Other places charge for hosting, plus security, plus extras, and within WA,(Wealthy Affiliate, everything you need to become a success online is inside this awesome platform.

WordPress is so easy to use as within Wealthy Affiliate you can also take up the training if you are an online newbie. I did this and went from knowing 2% about life online to 97% understanding and the ability to build sites full time from home and earn money as well and I love it.

Develop Skills to become a Success Online

In order to become truly successful, you need to learn some skills and use the right tools to give you what you need.

I tried for 3 years to do it myself thinking it was easy. All I needed was a website and people would come. WRONG!!!!

You need to write excellent content to share with your readers, you have to learn keyword research for every article. You will need to know about Google, Bing, and Yahoo and how to get noticed by using SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

It may sound a little confusing and that’s exactly how it was for me as well until I went through the OEC (Online Entrepreneur Certification) inside Wealthy Affiliate and once I got started with the course, I found that everything fell into place like a puzzle and before long I was also ranking on page 1 of Google Bing and Yahoo and I was thrilled as I knew it was working and I was going to do well online.

The screenshot below gives you the course details and when you have completed this course you may also want to go through Bootcamp as this will give you even more skills to use in the future.
