This approach is ideal if you need a website fast, and want to learn about a great way to make your own website, where you are in control. With this approach you will need a website builder. A website builder is an easy tool that allows people to build websites by answering a few questions, and the tool than builds the website for you using this information. Let me tell you about the Wealthy Affiliate website builder.

With this approach, you need an account with Wealthy Affiliate, and the really good news, is that you can get a free starter account right now for free. There is no need to spend any money on this, until you are happy to do so. 🙂 🙂

My experience from free starter account to premium

Just so you know, I myself used the free starter account for a few weeks so that I could explore more the offerings within Wealthy Affiliate. After all, at the time, Wealthy Affiliate was new to me so I had to learn more about Wealthy Affiliate and their offerings before I spent one cent. You could also be in a ‘similar boat’ and the great news is that the free starter account within Wealthy Affiliate allows this approach. You get to sample their offerings and if you like them, you can continue or not. The choice is totally up to you, as it should be. 🙂 🙂

So for the first few weeks I did some of their training and some of their video walk-throughs. I also built websites proving to me that their process works. You can do the same. Once I saw that their approach works, I upgraded to premium account which is worth every cent. I did not upgrade immediately from starter to premium. I took full advantage of the free starter account, and then upgraded to premium when I was ready and not before. I am now in my second year of full premium membership, and in my opinion, full premium membership is worth every cent and more: 🙂 🙂

Make your own website

Following are some brief notes on how to make your own website using the website builder provided by Wealthy Affiliate. At this stage, you will need an account with Wealthy Affiliate. So if you have not got it yet, get it here.

Once you have your free starter account, log in, you will see a drop down menu on the left hand side. Select the Site Rubix by clicking on it. Then a Site Rubix screen is displayed, select Site Builder and click on the Go button.

Then you will see a screen, that shows a few easy steps (Step 1, Step 2 and so on) as shown in the screen shot below.

Let us go through these few easy steps, one at a time. 🙂 🙂

Select the kind of website you want. On the starter account, you select “A Free Website” if this is not already automatically selected. If you have a premium account, you also have another option. However, initially use a free website option until you are ready and happy to upgrade to premium.

The next question that needs answering, is to enter in a domain name. Key in something that makes sense to you and you might be able to grab that name if it is still available. If not, key in something different, until you find one that is still available. In this context, the name is, where yoursite is the name you selected which has not yet been grabbed. 🙂 🙂

In this example, I entered “enterwebsitename”. As it was available, the “available” icon is displayed as shown in the screen shot below.

Going to the next question, which is to name the website. Sometimes people put in the full domain here, or just simply what the website is about. You could put in a short marketing catchphrase. If you can not think of anything fast, put in something like “Welcome to”. This can be easily changed afterwards so I recommend that you put in a temporary statement and change it later if you want to.

For this run through, I entered “The Name of the web site goes here”. as shown in the screen shot below.

The next thing to do is to choose a look and feel for your website. Choose a look and feel that you like from the list displayed. In this example, I selected the “Hiero” theme as shown in the following screen shot. Don’t worry if this look and feel is not available, just select one from the list that you are happy with.

Build my website now

Next, a ‘confirmation’ screen is displayed, showing your answers. You just click on the “I’m Ready, Build My WebSite Now” button as shown below. Once you click on the “I’m Ready, Build My Website Now” button, your website is moments away. You will be able to access your website on the net.

Building website

A “hold tight, building website” message is displayed. A few moments later, a built website message is displayed. The website is now built. This post very clearly and very concisely answers the Need a website but don’t know where to start requirement. Or at least, I think it does. Let me know below if it does or if it does not. 🙂 🙂

Need a website, but don’t know where to start

Now that you need a website, but don’t know where to start, I suggest that you try out this approach for yourself.

If you need a website but don’t know where to start, I recommend that you follow the approach mentioned above and then you will very quickly see that this approach works, and if you actually do this, you will have built your own website. 🙂 🙂

Even if you need a website, and do know where to start, I suggest that you try out the approach mentioned above because it may be a better way of starting. It is a lot better than coding a website from scratch and has a lot of functionally built in. 🙂 🙂

Let me know how you find this process yourself, after you do it. 🙂 🙂

Let me know if you have any related questions. Just ask them below. I would love to help. 🙂

  1. Very comprehensive review on WA’s website builder here. I am sure many readers will be able to easily follow through the steps, once they are convinced of using WA to create their website.

    With so many different website services out there, it is important to have more genuine reviews like this. This helps to build trust in the readers about the service provided.

    Great article!

    • Hi Farhan, thanks for your comments. It is important to understand that with Wealthy Affiliate (WA), other WA members provide a lot of mutual support. With some webhosts, it is just the web hosting. With WA, it is a lot more. WA have a really good support system in place, with other WA members adding in their expertise and their experience. This is something that I have not experienced with any other webhost.
