Hey guys in today’s video you’re going to learn how to create a website online step by step but more specifically an affiliate marketing website that will actually make you money now if you’ve ever wanted to learn how to do affiliate marketing that is the first step to actually diving in and I’m going to show you how to do it inside my computer in a second so at the end of the severac short video you will know exactly how to make your own website online and this will apply to you even if you’re not making an affiliate marketing or website I will take you through step by step and prove to you that it’s really easy to make a website in this very short video so let’s jump into my computer right now and I’ll show you exactly how to get started and create your own profitable online website alright guys in this how to create a website tutorial we’re gonna go through step by step and I’m gonna show you how to install WordPress and get it started now the thing is you can use this for any type of website you want to create we’re gonna be talking about in a-flat marketing website in this tutorial the first step is to go and find hosting and get a domain name the hosting that I recommend is Bluehost com you get a free domain and you get one click WordPress install which I’m going to show you how to do that and this is for two dollars and 95 per month so you really can’t go wrong with this deal so I’ll show you how to actually sign this up and take you through the process then we’ll get into the other steps and show you exactly how to create your own WordPress website on line so the first step guys is actually gonna sign it to Bluehost or whatever hosting platform you want to use if you do click the link in the description you’ll get a discount and you will come to a page like this for friends of Franklin Hatchett and you’ll get a free domain and one-click install like I mentioned before so I’m gonna click get started now and take you through the steps what they’re gonna do is first ask what plan we would like to start on all you need to do is start on the basic plan you don’t need the plus or the choice plus because you can upgrade whenever you like if you are starting all you need is the basics so click on the basic the next step guys is to choose your domain name that will really be up to you in this case it doesn’t really matter we can choose anything but this is the name of your website so I go our Franks online reviews because in this example we’re talking about an affiliate marketing website where we would review products and I’m gonna go to next or if you already have a domain you can add that if you like now on this page guys is a few things I want to point out before you actually sign up that are really critical okay step number one is choose your hosting plan but what I do want to mention is that there’s a few options that are automatically text first of all take off code guard and site lock security you don’t need that because there’s free security plugins that you could use and domain privacy protection that’s up to you it’s an extra ninety-nine cents per month what that means is if someone goes and checks a website and the domain information online your name will be protected and I won’t show up so I recommend having that on but it’s really up to you you don’t need to if you don’t want to but definitely you don’t need these two here so if we had our domain privacy on for three years we would pay a hundred and eighteen dollars to have a website live for three years that’s incredible value so there’s really no excuse to go and start a website online because a hundred and eighteen dollars for three years is manageable for anybody so now guys I’m gonna go up and fill out the details that’s what I recommend you do to get your website started then we’ll go and install WordPress and go on to the next steps so when you sign up guys you’ll come to a page like this and you’ll also get sent some details in your email as well so I’m gonna go to create account and it’s going to create the account for me and then go to create account now on this page guys you can really put in anything because you can change this on the website and it doesn’t actually matter what you put there I’ll explain to you why when we actually create the website so I’m just going to put reviews and reviews and then we’re gonna start a blog and we’ll just just choose homepage for now and then go to continue and then just fill out whatever they ask you to fill out now at this point guys just choose any theme because I’m actually going to show you a bit of theme to use so just choose anything I’m gonna show the perfect theme to use for affiliate marketing and pretty much any kind of blogger website you want to create now once all that’s done guys gonna go to a page like this you don’t really need to worry about any of this stuff all you need to do is go to launch my site okay and launch my site anyways you don’t need to worry about any of this other stuff and let it do its thing and then go view my site and now you have a website but we need to go and do a few things go down to my sites and go to log into WordPress and we’re now going to log in and start changing things putting in plugins changing the theme and putting in an article all right guys before we get into the next step of actually installing a bit of theme we need to do one thing and that is the clean up we need to clean things up before we start because what happens as Bluehost installs a lot of stuff that we don’t need so first of all click these little X’s here we’ll get rid of this and then go to plugins ok and we’re going to delete a lot of plugins it’s just easier to do this now so we don’t have to do it later so delete this one here this will be automatically installed and then delete this one here so you go to plugins and then you’ll find all of this delete this analytic stuff we don’t need that but actually so it’s easier just to tick these buttons we don’t need that one we don’t need jetpack we don’t need this one and we don’t need this one so deactivate all of these by going to actually will delete them up here and then apply now once these are deleted guys you’re going to be left with a nice clean website so we can start from fresh so the next thing we need to do is go to appearance and themes now there’s got to be a lot of themes you can choose from here but I recommend do not do not choose any of these themes ok with premium themes WordPress themes the reason is because a lot of themes that WordPress has are not very fast and they’re not very optimized for what we’re trying to do so what I recommend guys is using a theme called schema or Shima however it’s pronounced and this is a free theme so if you go to this website here which is called my theme shop com I’ll leave a link below and you go to the Shema theme here and then go down to here and it’ll it might be on the licensed one just click that box and go to free and you can download this for free and then you want to go back to your website guys go to themes and then go to upload on the top here and then you want to there’ll be a whole lot of themes here guys don’t worry about that I mean you might find something you like but I would recommend not messing with these themes because they’re very advanced and a lot of them are very very slow but it’s up to you depending on what type of site you want for an affiliate site this is the one I recommend and then go to upload theme and go to choose file and choose the file of that theme and then install now now because it’s a free theme guys it’s probably gonna be a little bit limited so you might want to get the paid version however the free theme is fine for this and then go to activate now it’s gonna ask you to install a bunch of plugins here guys I would recommend you install wordpress SEO plugin ranked meth because there is actually one of the plugins that i’m going to be recommending in this training so rank meth SEO we will need that the rest of them don’t worry about getting so it’s going to ask you to install install rank meth and then we’ll also move on now to installing other recommended plug-ins for your website so if we quickly the scope to here guys and have a view of the site you’ll see that it’s now different ok it now looks completely different so now let’s go and do step number three which is we want to go and install some plugins so I’m gonna recommend these plugins guys we’re going to go and install them but I wanted to spin this guys to have your website really fast do not install a lot of plugins what a lot of people do is install way too many plugins and slow down their website so we’re going to install the classic editor image widget pretty links rank math which we already have thrive leads is optional it’s paid I will talk about that in this video and then wordfence is a security plugin if you need it so the first one goes we’re going to go to our plugins and we’ve got these are the best plugins guys we’re going to add new and we are going to go to the search bar up here and we’re going to put in classic and then install the classic editor the reason you want this is because WordPress didn’t update recently and it makes it very hard to edit things as a beginner so we want to install the classic editor to get it back to the old version and click activate next we want to install image widget and I’ll explain why later so go to add new and go to image widget I’m just going to install all these guys and then come back right guys I’m installed all these plugins now did forget to mention there sometimes with Bluehost when you start you might have a subdomain for a while because your proper domain that you got with them might not be started yet so you can still edit your site and then now change it over when it’s ready now the next step guys is what I like to do before I do anything else is to actually post some content so in step number three we’re actually going to jump into sitting everything up and all that sort of stuff but before I do that I like to put some content on so I know what we’re working with now if you watch one of my other previous videos we talked about a method called launch jacking so we’re actually going to go and pretend that we want to rank for a particular product from this website and affiliate marketing product and this is a product so we’re going to just imagine that we want to go and put our website on the front page for rank one agency review I actually have an article here it here that I got from another website we’re not going to make it live or use it for this particular example and here is the product here now this is the affiliate marketing page and here is the actual product which is really good so we can actually get a commission from this by having a article on Google what happens is when this launches people go and search for it on Google by putting in rank one agency review and we want our website to show up on the top ten now this one with this keyword is actually quite easy because there’s a lot of YouTube videos on the top ten which is a good indicate that this keyword will be quite easy to rank for so the first thing we want to do guys is we want to go back to our website and I’m going to show you how to use all these plugins and stuff in a second but we want to go and put a post on our website so I’m gonna go to post over here and you’ll automatically have a post that’s added you can either edit this yourself and use this post or you can create a new one which I’m going to do right now so I’m gonna go to add new now the reason I add a post guys is because if we go and look at our website right now there’s nothing there so it’s very hard to go and edit something when there’s nothing there and make it look nice so on this particular page guys I’m just going to first put in a title and I just want to so rank one agency is what I want to rank for so I would put that in the title and then I would put something like is this program the best for you to mark if you want to learn more about search engine optimization I have lots of videos on that but we’ll do some basic search engine optimization in this particular video so a post case as an article it’s a blog post the next thing guys will notice is permalink here we want to edit this permalink we want to delete this because it’s Auto filled and we want to put an rank one agency review and click OK now I’m actually going to go to save draft it’s a good idea to save draft after doing that just because sometimes it changes back and then you see this here this is why we installed the classic editor because it’s nice and clean usually if we don’t if you don’t install the classic editor this looks different and it’s very hard to use so I have an article here guys that I’m going to use this is a premade article I’m going to copy this into the sit into the website here and paste it here okay now if I actually go I’m save draft again and I preview this you’ll see why I actually went ahead and do an article before I do anything else because now it’s more filled out and we can start to edit more and it just looks like already guys this looks extremely good it just looks nice and clean now when you’re ranking websites not going to touch too much on on search engine optimization when you’re ranking you want to have stuff like keywords in here and stuff like that so you’d want to put your keyword in here so this is obviously a pre-made website but I could put something like let’s get started with this rank one agency review and I’ve put the keyword in the article now you want to do that a couple of times depending on how many words and the article but we have rank one agency review rank one agency review here and then rank one agency review now what a lot of people do guys as I say as they say all websites are hard to rank and stuff like that but when you’re going out so this is for the launch jacking method once again there’ll be a video blog for know more about that what we’re doing is we’re going out and we’re ranking these affiliate marketing websites for keywords that have no competition their new keywords people have never searched these before but when these products launch then people to search them that’s why this looks really different to what you’d usually see because no one is trying to rank for this so we can go and rank for this and make money when there’s product launches you’ll see that there’s Facebook in there and YouTube that’s a good indication that we’ll probably be able to go and rank for this particular keyword in fact I might even try and get something on here for this video but we’ll see it depends sometimes it takes a few days to show up but that’s what we’re trying to do go and rank for this particular keyword that are easy that are not hard keywords because they don’t even exist in Google when you’re when you’re doing these articles they only exist once the launch comes and people are actually searching these things so you want to go and edit your article guys for search engine optimization and make it optimized for this particular keyword or whatever article you’re for whatever product you’re trying to get Commission’s for so it could be things like and get response free view clickfunnels review how to make a website there’s another one because you’re trying to get people to sign up to hosting under you there’s all sorts of different affiliate marketing things you can do so go and research what you would like to do now the next step guys is we’re now going to use let’s just get rid of that real quick the next step is we’re going to actually edit this okay so rank one agency review is this program right for you you can actually rhymes you can actually leave that if you like I’m just going to edit it again and put in rank one agency review read this article be for you by so I’ve put in rank one agency review and what this plug-in does guys rank math SEO is we’re editing this text here so the title and the description so we’re editing what shows up in Google okay and then down here is the description so you can actually leave this if you like and Google will just randomly take sections out of the of the particular article but I’m gonna actually edits it real quick hang on edit this alright guys so put it a little bit of a description here you can probably put a more than once again I’ve got rank one agency review and they’re okay and then I always like to after I do an edit guys I like to just click save drops it’s not live yet but we’ve saved the draft so we can just keep editing without losing any information if we go back down guys and click on rich snippet I’m going to show you how to get these little stars here so on the rich snippet guides you want to go to rich snippet type go to review and then you can put in a star here so if four stars and then what what will happen is once your articles live you’ll have this little rank these little stars so you can do four stars five stars with five stars or whatever you like with that and then once again go and click Save draft so everything is saved now another great thing about this particular theme guys is on the right you can disable the header disable the title to savor them in a box disable the author box disable the footer so if I go and preview this right now you’ll see that we have a author box and some related posts I can disable those by going disabled related post disabled author box and save draft and then I can preview that again and those should be gone now and they have so that’s how you go and edit that get rid of those and you can get rid of the title if you want and stuff like that now another thing guys is that this is uncharacterized that is the category so you can add categories by going to categories on the left or you can actually add one in the post here so I’m going to add go to add category I’m just going to put reviews and we’re gonna categorize this article under reviews because that’s what it is so now it’s reviews is ticked if I go save draft and I go to preview again you’ll see that now it says reviews all right super easy guys to do this stuff we’ve literally just got a nice website going right here really easy just done just like that it would be up to you to go on you know optimize your article and stuff I use I writer guys to get articles for stuff like this now if you want to put images inside your article as well guys it’s really easy just click where you want to put the actual image and click add media and then you’ll be able to go select images and upload an image to your article that’s really easy to do that’s how you do that now once you have this all done guys all you need to do is just double check everything cuz all working when you do the search engine optimization stuff you’re gonna have a lot of this stuff that’s in the red and it’s going to say that things are incorrect but don’t worry about that too much as long as you have your keywords in there you have your titles done and you have kind of like semi optimized this stuff usually it really just depends on the keyword that you’re trying to rank for I try not to get this completely correct if you wanted to change this and get some stuff to show up all you would do is just go and get your keyword that you want to rank which is this one here go and put it into here as a focus keyword and you’ll see that as changed a little bit so your focus keyword is in the title your focus keyword is inside the mid a description it’s in the URL your word count is 800 which is good and these it just gives you a general idea of how optimized your pages now once this is all done guys just go to publish and your page will now be live so whenever someone goes to this URL it’ll be live so if we go to preview here we just bring this down a little bit and we get rid of the preview and we go out that your website will be live that’s now a live link and you can share this with anyone or whatever and Google will go and rank it but how do we make this tidier how do we change the menu here how do we put some stuff on the sidebar so now let’s go and explain to you how to do the sidebar and how to actually add things to the sidebar like images and all that sort of stuff and then we’ll do the menu actually so guys before we do that I did miss one thing how do you actually put an affiliate link inside this article so at the end of this video I’ll show you how to put buttons and but right now I’ll show you just how to put an affiliate link in and so you can know how to do it and stuff like that so I’m gonna go to plugins guys actually so I’m going to go to pretty link and I’m going to open up pretty links and this what this does is you can take a link and you can shorten it so if I get my affiliate link here this is not an affiliate link to the other program we were talking about but this is a affiliate link so right here if I take this link and I go to pretty link and I go add pretty link you’ll see that we can actually add a link in here so paste and then go to create what pretty link does is it’s a link shortener and it gives you a nice clean link here so I’m gonna copy that link I’m gonna go back to posts guys and I’m going to go and edit this post and I’ll show you how to do a link so let’s for example say that we want people to check out our link we can go do you want to know more about rank agency click here on the click here section you can highlight it and you can go to this little link up here and you can paste in that pretty link okay so pretty link is just a short enough but it makes the link cleaner and Google doesn’t like affiliate links on the page so it’s always a good idea to use some sort of link shortener and then go to apply pretty link is free to use so your merger I’ll just use it and then I’m going to go update now if we preview this page you’ll see that people can click through via click through to the affiliate link and I would get a commission if someone went and got get response under me now I’m going to show you how to do some more advanced stuff like buttons and that later on in this training so stay tuned for that so now we want to go to appearance and widgets okay now in the widgets section I’m going to show you how to edit the sidebar so on the right we’ll have we should have some standard sidebar stuff we don’t what you might want to do is just drag in a random one so drag that into the sidebar and click Save should be saved now I think and refresh yep so that’s taken away the standard ones so now we can work with we can kind of work with things so let’s start from scratch now because we’ve got rid of that so what this is guys is this sidebar you can drag things in and you and you can pretty much just drag whatever you wantin and they will show up on the sidebar so we can drag and recent post so if we put recent posts in there and that’s saved and we do a refresh we now have recent recent posts which I actually leave that there because what that X at X is a place where people can click and it’s good for Google it shows that people interested in your website and it creates what we call engagement so make sure you definitely add recent recent post I don’t know about categories that’s really up to you but what I would do guys is add the one where I am said image widget this theme actually already comes with an image image one but this one’s a little bit bitter so drag an image widget and you can actually add an image now for now you might want to do this with things like benna’s maybe your face and stuff like that so let’s gonna add one real quick I don’t know if this image is gonna look very good but I’m gonna add it anyway now I’m gonna go insert two widget and you can put a link if you like so I’ll link down here so you could put your affiliate link and all that sort of stuff I’m going to click Save I’m gonna refresh this page and you’ll see that now I’ve added this but how do we get rid of this ugly title that’s simple we just go here we take that out go to save and so now we’ve added an image right so look out look at the sites coming together really really nicely we’ve got an image let me just get rid of categories real quick cuz I don’t really want that in there I don’t like the look of the categories one we’ll just drag that out recent let’s just see what else we need here recent posts you can add a video you can add search you can add a custom HTML malicious go and view now and look at that we now have an image and if you want you can have a link here so it could be a banner of a link of your image of yourself if you like and we now have recent posts so people can go through and click through to other posts that we have and can go back to our original post and then here’s our affiliate link right here so as you can see the website is starting to come together really nicely but what do we do about this section up here let me show you how to edit this before we do that let’s just go to widgets one more time so widgets is right here guys and what you want to do with widgets as you can it at the side you can drag things into the sidebar and also the footer as well so you can go down and you can put stuff in the footer section if you like so now what we want to do guys is actually go to menus menus down here on the left under widgets and we can start to edit our menu add things to our menu if we like but well we want to do first guys is we need to create a menu so I’m going to go create menu and I’m just going to name this main menu and create menu and then I’m going to call this the primary menu and click Save and I think this theme actually comes standard with some sort of function up here that you can’t delete but we’ll get into that and inside this menu guys you can add a post if you like you can add custom links custom links is probably the best one to do because let me kind of show you what I mean so this rank review here let’s copy this okay go back to menu and post it into here then I can put whatever I want in here so I’ll put rank 1 review or you can put reviews and would it be like I’m gonna add that to the menu then what I’m also going to do guys is go to categories and add my reviews category add to the menu and I’m going to click Save menu and we’ll see what comes up here Oh yep so there we go we just changed the main menu so we have rank 1 review and we have reviews so I’m going to click on reviews and there we go and I’m going to click on rank 1 review so the most important thing here guys is just under I would use custom links because then you can put in whatever you link you want and whatever text you want and then if you want to go add some categories you can have some categories listed here to add as well and you can change it around if you like up-and-down or whatever or whatever you want to do so now this will be different so there we go so that guys is how you actually create that so let’s say you put the article in you put the sidebar but how do we kind of just do an overview of the site and change like logos and stuff well if I think if we go to customize down here so that’s how you create menus really simple to do if we go to customize we should be able to add logos and things like that alright but every theme is different ok so on this page guys we can do site identity you can do a site title and Gloam but don’t worry about that you don’t need to do that you can also select a logo which would replace this review section here now I could change the site title to Frank’s reviews and that would change to Frank’s reviews or I could put a logo in here by uploading a logo I don’t have a logo right now but you can do that and then go back and there’s a few other things you can edit but I wouldn’t really edit on this page guys because we’ve already showed you how to do it the stuff you don’t really need to do or anything because we’ve pretty much already done it on the other stuff now one thing I do want to show you guys is the home page so if we go to Frank’s reviews calm the home page has got all of the Bloods it has got the blogs right so that’s pretty cool when people go to Frank’s reviews calm it shows the blog articles but what if you want a custom page well that’s simple what you want to do is go to our first of all creator page so you can create a custom page like a landing page with the landing page builder or you can create your own custom home page I’m a good landing page builder guys is this one here called thrive architect and you can create custom pages on WordPress now this is not really for blogs right it’s to create stuff like this see this page right here this is the home page of one of my websites I created this with a program called thrive architect now this does cost money but this is good for creating custom landing pages on your website so for like for example home pages so I created this home page here with thrive architect all you’ve got to do I’m not going to share that during this video because it’s kind of another tutorial but all you’ve got to do is go to pages add new page and then they’ll be install something like thrive architect and I’ll give you instructions on how to use it then once you’ve created your page all you’ve got to do is go to settings and then reading and then once you’re on the reading section for your home page display settings if you keep it on your latest post then it’s going to look like this and that’s fine pretty much in 90% of cases if you’re doing an affiliate marketing website just keep it simple and have the blog I have the articles on the front page and they’ll automatically get added when you add a new article but if you want like a nice page like this we clicked emails and stuff use a landing page builder and create a page and then go to this section and click a static page and go to a home page and you’ll be and you’ll be able to choose specific pages that you want to that you want to have on the home page and for example just for the testing of this video we’ll go to a post page and actually we don’t have a sample page let’s just change it to this and see what happens okay Save Changes home page because you don’t actually have a proper page made but if we refresh that it’s now changed to the sample page so what we did is if we go into pages real quick what we did is we made the sample page the front page now okay so if you want to make your home page your main page of your website whatever you want just go and create a page so you could Scott to add new and you just create a page and you simply add it to the home page by going to reading down here a static page and select which page you want as a home page now when you have thrive architect installed you have a little option here that says in it with thrive architect and you’ll be able to edit this page will thrive architect and then you’ll be able to add some of the templates that they have and they’ve got templates like this so guys now you should be able to go out there and create a nice beautiful looking affiliate marketing or website like this depending on what you want to go and rank and what your planners or you do is rinse and repeat the process and put articles on your affiliate marketing blog now you might be asking why haven’t we talked about these particular plugins from the beginning thrive leads and wordfence so we’re going to talk about thrive leads right now our wordfence is a security plug-in so it’s up to you if you want to get wordfence they have a free version if you just put word fence into the plugins section you’ll be able to find that but what does thrive leads and what does it do now this is optional and it is paid but what thrive leads does is that lets you create buttons this but this is one of my affiliate marketing websites you can see that my affiliate marketing websites are very plain there’s not much to them that’s because we want everyone to be focused on the links and the buttons so what thrive leads does is it lets you create these buttons and this is the page here now not only that it actually lets you collect emails as well from your website so thrive leads is paid I think it’s like 60 bucks or something I’ll leave a discount below but you can go and watch the video and what it does is at least you collect emails from your blog and also create buttons that you can insert into your articles now the reason you’ll want to collect emails from your blog guys is so you can build an email list so you can have pop-ups so you can have banners at the top you can have forms that pop up on the bottom there you can have email things on your widget sidebar and they will show you how to do that you can have full screen overlays you can have content lock things you have a scroll map that comes down you can have all sorts of email marketing forms so you can collect emails this literally is the best one out there and not only that you can go and create these buttons so you can so when people click here guys it takes them to the page where they can purchase and you’ll get an affiliate Commission it’s just another way to get your affiliate link so all you would do would be to buy thrive leads install thrive leads and then go and edit your article and insert the thrive leads button into your article once you’ve created it and they will show you how to do that it’s called a shortcode and all you do is paste the shortcode into your article and then you’ll have a button there that you can use so that guys is how you can go
