So now your asking… how is that even possible and how do you create a free website? It’s possible because Wealthy Affiliate has joined forces with the most powerful online website building software known as WordPress. WordPress takes all the hard work out of building a new website and WordPress allows you to build it for free. And most importantly, WordPress is pre-configured for you before you even get started, so you don’t have to worry about all the technical jargon that goes on in the background while you work away with ease. It’s as easy and very similar to Microsoft Word.
And get this… You even get a Free Domain Name and Hosting. What other online business or software that you know of, offers all this completely free?
Not only is it completely free, but I am going to help you in getting started!
WordPress – There is a reason why WordPress is so popular with beginners to the world of website building, including high-end professional website users… At last count, 23% of ALL internet websites, World-Wide use WordPress!
WordPress is extremely user-friendly and you don’t need to be an Internet expert or an HTML coder to use WordPress. All you need is an internet connection and a web browser to start creating your own website.
WordPress is the perfect starting point for any passion you wish to share with the world-wide web or any small business that needs to get the word out.
Please Note: In the above video, Kyle (owner of WA) explains how it is possible to build a website in under 30 seconds. Yes, this is doable, but I don’t expect this from anyone that is new to building websites. You can take 30 seconds, 5 minutes, or as long as you like. When you’re a WA member, there is no pressure as to when you get it finished.
Never has creating a new website for yourself been so easy!
Choose a theme for your new website… WordPress comes with an array of themes you can choose from which allows you to have a professionally designed website without the pain or expense of hiring a professional web designer.
Given that WordPress is so easy to use and the availability of thousands of professional quality themes, it’s not surprising that WordPress is the most popular web publishing system on the planet.
Choose a Plugin… WordPress Plugins add complex business features to your website without having to hire a coder. Need some additional functionality on your website? There’s a plugin for that!
There are thousands of WordPress plugins available that add functionality to the core system of your new website. So whether you need a simple contact form or a full-featured e-commerce system, there’s a plugin to meet your business needs.
WordPress is Search Engine friendly… Listen to what Google Engineer Matt Cutts has to say about WordPress. “WordPress automatically solves a ton of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) issues.” And with the free Yoast SEO plugin which is included with your site will be even more search engine friendly (Meaning: Improve your position in Google).
Mobile Friendly… Please do not assume your customers are visiting your website from a full-sized computer screen, cause chances are, they are using a small screen from a mobile handset or iPad. As you may already know or imagine, mobile website usage is exploding. If your website doesn’t look great and work well on a smartphone or tablet your customers will skip your site and go somewhere else.
All WordPress themes are designed to be responsive (mobile friendly), meaning your customers won’t be challenged when using your website on their Smartphones or iPads. Even the WordPress dashboard is designed to work on smartphones, iPad’s and full-sized PCs — so you can easily manage your website from anywhere in the world.
You will also be happy to know… That WordPress was launched back in May 2013. So it is far from being a backyard one-night stand. During the past decade, WordPress has been refined, tested, and enhanced to the fine-tuned, user-friendly software that is today. In the process, it has evolved into a world-class web publishing system.
Unlike other website building tools… WordPress is an open source and free of commercial restrictions and limitations. That means you can use the software any way you choose and host your website anywhere you choose. All without fear that changes in someone else’s business model will have an adverse impact on one of your most important business assets.
When you choose WordPress you have complete control over your website. And as a business owner, what better reason do you need to use WordPress.
Wealthy Affiliate… Highly recommends Word Press. Not just because it is free, but because it has the quality and all the tools needed for anyone to easily create any website they wish.
When your apart of the Wealthy Affiliate family, you will soon find out why there are so many users, and it’s only natural that a huge, active, and generous community has sprung up to provide support, exchange ideas, and make WordPress better for everyone.
