Today you’ll learn how to create a free business website.
I’ll be showing you how to do this using a couple of free tools and walk you through the process with an example business website idea.
The tools I use will make it easier for you to break into pretty much any online business niche.
In today’s training I’ll show you how to..
- Start your own free business website.
- Bring in Free Traffic to that website.
- Convert that Traffic to Online Sales.
How To Create A Free Business Website:
You can create a free business website with many different website platforms. But not all platforms are made equally.
I’ve been successful working online for years and I encourage people to use the website builder called SiteRubix. Click here to see my SiteRubix Review.
It’s a WordPress platform that is powered and operated by a company called Wealthy Affiliate (WA).
Site Rubix is superior than using the free WordPress builder because it comes with 1,000’s of free website theme templates and a FREE training program.
This Free Website Training will teach you the basics in…
- Setting up your Website.
- Installing optimal plugins (this will protect your site as well as help you get your site ranked in search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing).
- Understand Keyword Research.
- Getting your first website pages started to form the foundation to your online business.
WA also offers free hosting so you have an all inclusive system to start your free online business.
Next you need to decide what your online business will be about.
In other words, what’s your niche (read this post should you need help figuring out your online niche)?
Business Website Domain Names:
Online business names, in general, should be…
- Related to the business niche.
- Short and sweet.
- Keyword based.
For Example: since my background is in the medical field of Occupational Therapy, I will show you two niche ideas that I have already investigated:
- Tennis Elbow
- Plantar Fasciitis
Special Note: With any free website builder, you will have a suffix name at the end of your website.
For example, if my site’s name is CureTennisElbow, with a free site builder, my website name would be..
You can get your site to rank and make money off your website, technically creating a free business website.
But, it will look more professional if you buy your own domain name, that way my site would read..
Now doesn’t that sound better?
Domain names are pretty inexpensive though, they cost around $12 – 15 dollars/year.
But to totally start a website for FREE, just put the name of the site you want in SiteRubix’s search bar below.
If your name is available, just click the Build It Now button and you can have the basics to your site established in about 30 seconds.
Now let’s look at how to find a low competition niche to base your free business website on.
Successful Business Website Ideas:
OK, so this can be a little overwhelming to some folks when they create their first online business, but it’s really not that hard.
The 3 Evergreen Niches in the online world are: Health, Money, and Love.
These are also super huge niches that are difficult to break into. Also, know that any niche is possible to break into if your understand how to do Keyword Research.
But when looking into any niche idea, I start with Google Trends.
It’s free to use and you can see how your niche idea is as far as popularity, past and present growth, and the amount of interest of your niche per geographical region.
So let’s check out my niche ideas of Plantar Fasciitis and see how it fares.
Using Google Trends, I’m going to look at the words Plantar Fasciitis and Foot Pain (they’re basically the same thing).
Notice the uprising trend for the term Plantar Fasciitis:
Again notice the uprising trend for the term Foot Pain.
So we can see that both these terms are on the rise. And both terms are related to the Evergreen Niche of Health, but they are much more detailed and specific.
Research Your Website Ideas for Competition:
You want to target low competition keywords. You also want to narrow down your niche to weed out big name competition.
My niche ideas work perfect. They’re not too broad, so it will be easier to break into and start making money faster.
Now Plantar Fasciitis has 271,00 people per month searching this term and Foot Pain has close to 37,000.
So I know that I have plenty of people who have this condition and are searching online for solutions to their problem.
When I look at low competition keyword phrases, I found a ton of really good search terms that people are searching in Google on a monthly basis that I can target to get quick rankings.
I will get good ranking if I am writing quality content that is based on my niche.
Check out this post to learn more about writing quality content.
Now on to how to find affiliate programs to make money with our websites.
Find Affiliate Programs for Your Business Website:
To find affiliate products related to my niche, I just type into Google my niche idea, add a + sign, with the words affiliate products.
In Google search results I will see various programs that I can review to see if I like the products, investigate the quality of the products, and see if they’d be a good fit for my niche business website.
For example, for a Tennis Elbow Niche Site, I would put Tennis Elbow + Affiliate Programs and this would give a list of programs that I can investigate. See below for my results.
Now to find low competition keyword phrases that I can use to rank my posts easily.
Build Your Free Business Website with Low Comp Keywords:
Understanding low competition keyword phrases is the key to getting quick rankings for your business website posts and pages.
If I choose high competition phrases, I’ll never see my website rank.
But if I use low competition phrases with a decent amount of monthly searches, I can get my posts to rank and that will lead to increased internet traffic.
I can then use that traffic to guide my readers to specific products that will be beneficial to them that are related to my niche.
I start off with Google again. Using Google’s Instant feature, I can play around with various phrases and find what people are searching on Google that is related to my niche of: Tennis Elbow, see below.
Special Note: These are just a few keyword phrases related to my niche, there a litterly thousands of good keyword phrases that I can use for most any niche
So you can see that by just using Google Instant, I can find multiple keyword phrases that people are searching.
Now to find the true competition of these keywords, I need to use a keyword tool.
Keyword Research is a Must:
The best keyword tool to use for this job is called Jaaxy.
But basically, Jaaxy will tell me…
- how many monthly searches each phrase receives.
- the amount of traffic I’ll get if my post ranks on page one of Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
- competing websites that rank for any particular keyword phrase.
See below for the results for the couple of keywords that I looked at from Google Instant listed above.
I labeled the Keyword Phrases Good/Awesome/Not Bad based on if they have a low competition number or the QSR, this is the number of competing websites that are targeting these keyword phrases.
Anything less than 200 is easy to rank if you’re writing quality content based on the keyword phrase that also has a decent amount of monthly Traffic.
I want my Traffic number to be above 50.
Traffic, using Jaaxy, is the number of monthly visitors I will get to my site if my post ranks on page one in Google.
Also, if I’m targeting the niche of Tennis Elbow, it’s advantageous for me if I name my site based on my targeted keywords (for increased rankings and search engine optimization).
So for that reason, I am also showing the domain names that are available in the chart above.
Since my next website is gong to be based on several niche ideas related to therapy, I went with a site name that is more brand-able (TherapyBoy.com).
This way I can create more of an authority website based on multiple products that I endorse as a therapist that will help people who have Therapy Related Problems.
