Hello and welcome yet, to another post on NewAffiliatesGuide.com!
I am, as always, Jose Reyes, your ever determinedly passionate Content Creator and Founder of this awesome website!
In this post, I want to talk to my business minded visitors and readers, about how they can start their own online business, from home, or anywhere where you may have a laptop with internet access!
I, when I started writing this post, I was actually in a Greek restaurant waiting for my take out order as I occupied my time busying myself on my smart phone!
in this post, I will be teaching my fellow newbies how they could be able to create a free website from scratch. Although I would love to clarify to my visitors that this can be done in a matter of minutes, that the process itself, would take a little longer than it is normally acknowledged by the majority of the already previously experienced affiliate marketers.
I’m not saying that they withhold information from the deserving public that have the right to know the truth about affiliate marketing; the truth to the matter is that choosing the direction of your website is the most important step of all!
Choosing a domain: the name that will represent your online business.
At the beginning, before I decided to help my fellow peers to discover that they can achieve all that they were willing to accomplish by means of being genuine with the kind of people that they were seriously passionate about helping online!
I originally thought of coming up with a domain name that would hopefully be as attractive and as catchy as a phrase that might be captivating in the minds of my readers.
Not only was I tasked in finding a domain name that I would have to be happy with, I had to be especially careful in how I had it worded or spelled out!
The reason for that being is because when you’re working on attaining your .com, .net, .org, etc; is because once you find a domain that is available for you to own, you are only given up to the moment before purchasing your domain, the opportunity to to make sure your domain is as you would like it to be.
You don’t have to buy a domain to host your website, it’s just more professional and trustworthy! You can create a free website, get website support, web hosting as well as training and coaching at Siterubix.com an awesome website powered by the great minds behind Wealthy Affiliate!
Buying a domain may be one of the most exciting things that you may end up doing, like buying a piece of virtual real estate, especially when you’re first getting started as an affiliate marketer!
When I started thinking about the kind of audience that I could most relate with, it didn’t take long for me to realize that my obvious niche was to create a guide for an audience that is just starting to learn about one of the most popular ways to create a passive income online, affiliate marketing!
I then also realized that I already had my work cut out for me… And the NewAffiliatesGuide.com website was born!
The direction of your website starts with your audience: be a voice to be trusted!
So now you know you have to have an idea of what you would love to name your website.
Have you thought of some great names for it? Are your top picks available for purchase? Most importantly, do your ideal domain names relate to the niche that you chose to become a content writer for?
Maybe you always thought about one day owning your own website, I know I have! And now I’m here trying my best to become a trusted affiliate marketer and not the type that is gonna pretend that spending hours in front of a screen is the fun part!
How about a little dose of the current reality that I am in? It has currently been a month and a half since I chose a theme and created my first website for free. I have even bought a domain for it too!
Needless to say, since I began my journey as an affiliate marketer on May 27th, I had given up on my first website and erased it. Erasing it, even though I had paid to have a domain for it for a year, I never even gave myself the opportunity to write more than just an introductory post for it!
So this is where I’m currently at, at this point: I’m nearing my second month as a beginning affiliate marketer. I still have yet to earn my first commission and so far only managed to get one referral… Not exactly impressive, right?
How many of you would have gotten discouraged at this point that it would have possibly caused you to doubt that you might not even get results from organic search engine optimized web pages that contained traffic targeting keywords that were carefully researched and expected to bring you traffic?
(Assuming if you were to me in my shoes right now!)
Why did I chose to write a brief update of my current progress as I continue to ever develop and work on adding more content to my website? My whole point of this personal exercise was to drive some points home:
1) the distance and the amount of effort and energy that you are willing to go and put into your business, is what will determine how far you’ll go and even how successful you will become as a result of all that you have put forth from the three.
2) when deciding to make the decision of the kind of direction your business will take, make sure that it’s something that you would love to talk to your audience about!
3) be confident and comfortable, and most of all, when you are focused on creating content with a passion, that you should always remember that you are doing it for the long haul, long term kind of thing!
You are running a business, treat it like you’re building a portfolio, not like a hobby!
After all, you are writing for real people, real people that deserve to have a content writer unlike the kind of content writers that they’re used to finding on the internet within your chosen niche!
Choosing a theme for your website: the look of the personality of your business
Here’s the deal: you’re ready and getting closer to seeing your first free website go live! But before you go and create it, you have to choose a theme that you feel will go as a great look for your website.
A theme is practically the skin and the layout of your website; the look! If you want to have a space where you can promote products or services that you feel confident and trust in, you’re gonna have to choose a look that you feel, will match the kind of life or energy that you are putting into your site.
Why you think I don’t write about adult diapers? It would be a shitty review!
If I’m gonna have a crappy theme with great content on a cool website, then so be it: it’s just a modest looking website with great content and a writer that you can’t help but admire his style of writing!
are you now ready to know how you can create two free websites? Cause that’s coming up right now!
Get to know Siterubix: not your typical website!

So what is Wealthy Affiliate?
They are the great minds behind Siterubix! Wealthy Affiliate is an Online University for aspiring entrepreneurs, for those that are barely getting started as well as for those that are already seasoned affiliate marketing pros.
They offer a free membership where they give the recently signed up member, instant access to the first of the five levels of the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course. They also provide live chat and 1 on 1 coaching, as well as access to the first phase of their Affiliate Bootcamp.
In a nutshell, they provide quality training, support and the backing of a very friendly and helpful community of Entrepreneurs that all have gone through the training or are still training, and are currently seeing results!
Some have been members at Wealthy Affiliate for years and either are living passive income lifestyles or have admitted to procrastinating for too long. Some already have had previous experience as well as success in their business but come to Wealthy Affiliate for the amazing training and incomparable service and community support!
how long will it take before you see success?: That all depends on what you define as success. Earning your first commission? Seeing your first staggering check or direct deposit? Achieving or exceeding your personal and financial goals from your business?
But I have read that it could be considered normal for someone to have been working on their website for 8 months before they started seeing consistent traffic and referrals! Some have without a doubt, worked tirelessly and have started seeing results in their 4th month in!
I had also read that people usually would end up giving up just as they were closer to achieving success than they realized!
