Create Your Professional Website For Free, In About Two Minutes
Hi, everyone. My name’s Grant, and I’m not an IT guy. I don’t speak HTML or coding or stuff like that. When I made this website, though, it only took me a couple of minutes! It was easy.
Are you one of those people who have an idea, or a desire to have an online presence, but don’t know how to get started? For a lot of things that you might want to do online, you need a website. A lot of places will help you get one, but most of them charge you money to do it, and then a monthly fee to keep it up and running.
I’m going to show you how you can have the website you’ve wanted, for FREE, and with no monthly fee at all.
First, Join Wealthy Affiliate
Don’t worry, it won’t hurt. I know a lot of us are leery of signing up for anything, even if it’s free, because a lot of so called “free” sites give you nothing of value and will bug you forever to upgrade and spend your money to get the stuff that works.
Or, they make you give your credit card number, and will automatically charge you when the “free trial” ends if you don’t remember to cancel. Wealthy Affiliate won’t do that. WA does offer upgrades too, but they give you real value for your free membership and you can remain in the free program for as long as you want. You aren’t pestered to upgrade.
And, the free training at WA works!
Since joining Wealthy Affiliate is FREE, too, and you don’t have to upgrade to a premium membership unless you want to, then there’s no risk to join up and get your free two websites. One of the perks of having a free membership with WA is that you can build two free websites. Take a look at the following video to get an overview of how easy it is to get your free website, then I’ll write some more about it.
So, why did I tell you to join Wealthy Affiliate? Because WA will guide you through the process of building your website, and will do it for free. What do you have to do to join?
Just go to the website, linked for you above, and fill out the sign-up screen. No credit card needed.
After you sign up, there are a couple of steps to take to access your new website builder. They are:
- Choose a profile picture
- write a short bio for your profile page
Now You Can Build Your Website.
Since you’ve filled out your profile, you will have your own dashboard that lets you, among other things, build your free website. Click on “Websites” on the left side of your screen, then click on “Site Builder.”
There are only 4 steps in you website creation.
Choose the kind of website you want to build. To be completely free, your website will be built on the .siterubix.com domain. If you want, you can purchase your own domain at only $14 per year, but right now we’re talking about a free website.
Choose a domain name. For example, let’s say you want your website to be about making baskets. You could maybe pick “basketweaver” for your domain name. Your website would be basketweaver.siterubix.com. A nice feature is that when you type in your domain name, WA will let you know if that name is available or not. If not, simply choose another name that relates to your subject.
Choose a name for your website. This isn’t necessarily the same as your domain name, but it should match your subject matter.
Choose a website design. There are twelve quality, hand-picked designs to choose from. Pick one you like, and don’t stress over it. If you later decide it’s not the one you want, you can go back and choose another design and all your data and posts and stuff will automatically transfer to the new design.
There’s no limit on how many times you can change designs, but remember, after 12 then you’re back to re-choosing a design you’ve already tried. Once you decide to go to the premium, paid training, you can choose from almost 2500 different designs.
You now have your free website. Congratulations!
Now For A Pep Talk!
The sad truth is that a lot of you reading this post won’t take advantage of the offer of a free website. I read the other day that there are 4 kinds of people.
- The Yeahbuts – These are the people with the excuses. “Yeah, but…” and they never get off the ground.
- The Gonnadoits – these are the world’s procrastinators. The people that know what needs to be done, but never get around to it.
- The WishIwouldas – These guys let the opportunity pass, and in hindsight moan that they wish that they had taken action when they had the chance.
- The GladIdidits – Yep, these are those who followed through and then reaped the benefits of their actions. These are the doers of the world, the ones who get started and then stick with it until they finish. These guys are the ones who get rich.
Which kind of person are you?
Disclosure: The FTC requires affiliate marketers to disclose that if a reader clicks on an affiliate link and purchase a product through that link, the affiliate will be paid a commission. That doesn’t apply to joining a free program, because a commission on nothing is nothing.
If you end up later on choosing to go premium at Wealthy Affiliate, then a commission will go to the affiliate. That commission doesn’t add to the price of the upgrade.
Thanks for reading my post. I hope it convinces you to jump in and get yourself a free website and join the big, huge internet world. I’d like to hear from you. Leave me a comment if you want or if you have a question.
