Watch Me Create A Niche Website In 5 Days & Make Money In Only 8 Days

I created this article to not only illustrate the process that I go through when creating a Niche website, but also the exact steps I take, and why I take them.

There are many ways to create Niche websites … this is my way.

My intention is that anyone who has a desire to make money online, can read this blueprint and create their own financial freedom by implementing each step.

[EDIT]

1) Niche Update #1 –Ā  first sale in only 8 days – Click here to see breakdown of the first sale.
2) Niche Update #2 – Next 20 sales

The domain for this niche website was purchased on 02 March 2014 and the content for the website was completed by 04 March 2014.

The video’s below shows you the entire process of creating a niche website.

So before I start … this tutorial makes the assumption that you already have an account with Wealthy Affiliate.

You don’t have to be a premium member for this to work, but some of the tutorials mentioned below, require a premium membership for you to access them – but like I said, you don’t have to have a premium account.

You do have to have an account to use the WA Keyword Tool though.

In this ‘real life’ example I am hosting my niche website at Wealthy Affiliate. As a premium member you can host as many websites as you like.

If you don’t have an account, then you can get one here and by using this link you will have access to my expertise within Wealthy Affiliate when you need it. Or join me here and I will give you step by step instructions on how to sign up and what to do once you’ve signed up.

Are you really able to create a niche website in a week?

Well, I use the term “in a week” loosely, because it depends on how much online experience you already have.

Some people will be able to accomplish the majority of these tasks (except for content creation) in a single afternoon, (I can do it in less than an hour), but others may take a little longer.

It also depends on how much time you have available a day to spend on each task.

Some people have to work a full-time job, others have full-time study … so what I have done is break each task into 30 minute chunks or less.

You’ll see what I mean shortly.

But if you follow along, you’ll be able to apply each step yourself, and create your own online business – super fast.

Plus if you become a member of Wealthy Affiliate you can get a ton of help from the community whenever you need it.

So where do you start?

Well, you start with finding a niche.

Day 1 – Finding a Niche

In order for you to attract the right visitor to your website you need to not only understand your target audience, but also understand what they search for in the search engines.

The best place to start finding your own niche is with the things you’re already interested in, or already have a bit of knowledge about.

Many of you are experts in a lot of different niches and don’t even know it.

So to find your own niche try this exercise.

Create 3 lists of 10 – 20 items.

Mine would look something like this …

List 1) Interests – as in what are you interested in and have knowledge about
Weight lifting
Nutrition
Mountain biking.
etc

List 2) Stuff that’s cool, but you don’t know anything about.
Iphone apps
Automatic gate openers
wireless headphones
etc

List 3) Frustrations – What frustrates you could frustration a lot of people
pitch forks that always bend
losing tv remote
joint pain
post workout nutrition
etc

Once you have got your lists, then order them by what you’re most interested in … to you’re least interest.

If you’re still unsure what to do then read What Should I Blog About To Make Money Online or watch this video in Wealthy Affiliate

Use the Keyword Tool

wa-keyword-toolStart plugging the seed keyword into the “WA keyword tool” and then sort by search volume.

It’s important to search by search volume, because it shows you the keyword phrases people are most interested in, in your niche.

Follow the flow of traffic.

I’m not sure where WA gets all of it’s keyword data from, but it is certainly not from the Google Keyword Planner – it could be a combination of many different search engines.

Nevertheless, it is a great indicator of searches performed around the internet.

Following the flow of search volume shows you where the interest lies in that niche.

Click the digg button under the keyword phrases that might be of interest to you, and you will slowly start to narrow your niche down.

Watch me do it here.

You can also watch this video on how to uncover 3 niches in a matter of minutes.

Once you think you’ve found a niche,these are some questions that you might be asking yourself.

How do you figure out whether it’s gonna be profitable?

Will it reach a financial ceiling?

Is there any interest in the niche beside me?

These are recurring questions that I get from people.

So I created this.

How to Quickly & Easily Find A Profitable Niche

Day 2 – Assessing Your Keywords

chosen_keywords

Now that I have my keywords, I want to figure out how I am going to use them.

To do this I look for some affiliate products online that I might be able to use with those keywords.

Looking at my keyword list one of the things that kept popping up was product names, specifically Sennheiser, Sony and Bose, which is a good indication that those brand of headphones are not only popular, but also related in some way to wireless headphones.

I choose the most popular brands of products to sell on my website.

Day 3 – Analyze The Competition

What you want to do here is to type your main keyword into Google to see what type of results it brings back.

I do this for several reasons, one being that whatever is on the frontpage of Google has passed their algorithm check (there are over 200 indicators) so if we want to have any chance of ranking on the first page then it only makes sense to see what Google thinks is worthy of frontpage results.

Another reason is to pick up some ideas of how you can layout your website and how to best serve your audience.

Depending on how much knowledge you already have in SEO, I might have gone a little too fast for some.

Not to worry, because there is an in-depth video that covers everything you need to understand how to analyze the competition on the first page and then how to beat them so that your website is ranking on the first page of the search engines.

 

serpdifficulty

 

 

Still Day 3 – Pick & Register A Domain Name

This is a no brainer really.

Find a domain name that has your main keyword in it.

In this case I have chosen wirelessheadphonestvreview.com

For more information on how to do that at Wealthy Affiliate watch the video below.

Day 4 – Create Your Website

Creating content is the life blood of any website and because you have already completed your keyword research on day 1, you have a fair idea what they type into the search engines.

So the next thing to do is to create the content that will satisfy their search.

So based on the research that I performed in the first few days I know what my target audience is searching for, and also know what sort of competition I’m competing with on the first page of Google. The next phase is to create the content.

In this video I walk you through my new niche website and show you my thought process for creating it.

If you’ve never used fiverr before, then you’re in for a treat because you can get just about any done for you for just $5.

But here’s a MUCH better place to get content for your website.

If you don’t know the first thing about creating a WordPress website then start here.

  1. Building your own website
  2. Setting Up Your Website
  3. Getting your site ready for SEO

Day 5 – Start Building Backlinks

Use Wealth Affiliate as a stepping stone. WA has some great ranking authority in Google and because content is being created on a constant basis, the Google bot comes running to slurp up any new content all the time. So by placing a link in the content your website will get indexed super fast.

moz-rank-WA

As you can see in the picture to the left WealthyAffiliate.com has a Moz rank of 55 Domain Authority and 63 Page Authority, which is a pretty big deal if you know anything about SEO.

You can put your new website link in your profile account.

Also Wealthy Affiliate encourages feedback from other members which means you can drop a few more links on other pages.

Watch the following video to see how you can instantly get feedback on your new niche website.

Here’s the link to the page shown in the video.

Please give me feedback on my website

Watch this live webinar for ranking metrics you need to be on the first page of Google.

Don’t be put off by the date when this webinar was aired, I know we have had a number of Google update since the 3rd August, but the information contained in this webinar is evergreen.

ranking-metrics

So that’s about it for the time being.

I have tried to capture as much information as possible on one page without over whelming you too much.

The information on this page should really be viewed as a blueprint and the detailed training within Wealthy Affiliate the lessons on “how to accomplish the blueprint”.

Honestly, there is just so much training within Wealthy Affiliate that it would literally take years to recreate.

Your Turn

Anyway I would love to get your feedback on this page. Was it helpful? If it was, it would give me incentive to create more like it.

  1. Matthew C. Kriner says:

    I simply want to mention I am beginner to blogging and certainly liked you’re website. Very likely Iā€™m planning to bookmark your blog post . You really have awesome articles and reviews. Thank you for sharing with us your blog.

  2. Bryant Cofty says:

    I recently joined WA through someone else but I think may rather be linked to them through you .I’m at the point of specifying my niche (anti aging) and purchasing my domain. Other than earning a commission on my premium membership at WA, which I was planning on purchasing today, what is your financial incentive in regards to our potential affiliation? You can check out my profile at WA if you would like. My user name is Bryant88. Thanks

    • Frank says:

      Hi Bryant, There’s no financial incentive for me if you signed up with a different person in WA, given that WA is not a MLM company. But the person you did sign up with is a really great coach too and I’m sure he can help you out.

      But, you can always ask me questions inside WA, since we all help each other out.

      Having said that, I apportion more of my time to my direct referrals first to be fair.

  3. Tony Tong says:

    Hi Frank,

    Great post that is short and sweet! I am trying to follow the steps you mentioned on my website and your tips really come in handy!

    Thanks!

    Tony

  4. jordan phillips says:

    Dear Frank,

    I have read all of your posts here and very much appreciate the information. I have just recently tried to work from home online and am still waiting for refunds from one scam after another. I am very much interested in signing up through you.

    What impressed me the most is your level of integrity, I suppose at least one of the programs I purchased I might have generated some income with but soon realized it seemed to be the only way to profit would be to sign up more desperate people and I am not okay with that.

    Please contact me if you can at my private email address as I do not wish to share all of my personal information here.

    Thank you !

  5. Hey Frank

    I’m so glad i found this website, it has really help in the right direction, But after seing all you videos and have red all you posts, i am still leaved with one question. How do you get amazon to pay you?

    • Frank says:

      There are 3 ways to get paid by Amazon.
      1) You can exchange your commissions for a gift card.
      2) Direct deposit (available to US states only).
      3) Check.
      Best,
      Frank

  6. jay says:

    Frank,

    Thanks for your honest reviews.
    Question:
    – so basically, the idea is to define a niche to sell something
    – setup a website to promote the item
    – setup key words that will get you up front in search engines

    Do I have it right?

    tks

    Jay

    • Frank says:

      Hey Jay,
      Pretty much, however, it’s how you put each piece together and WHY you put it together that way, is what makes the whole thing work.
      The “why” is probably more important than the “doing”, because the “why” determines what needs to be done.

  7. Carerra says:

    Hello there!
    So I’m not currently a member yet but I really want to work from home and make money at it so this is very interesting to me. I’m going to have a baby soon and I would like to stay home with her. The only questions I’m wondering about is where do we get the products to sell? Do we buy them? Also what about taxes. Do they automatically come out or do we have to do that ourselves?

    Thanks!!
    Carerra

    • Frank says:

      Hi Carerra,

      As an affiliate you’re basically the “middle-man” in the sales process. Meaning, you don’t have to buy in products or store inventory or even ship items, this is all taken care of by the vendor of the products your affiliated to.

      For example, if I am selling Amazon products as an affiliate, the fulfilment of the sale is taken care of by Amazon you just collect the standard affiliate fee for getting the sale.

      In terms of taxes, some vendors require tax information from you, but I just pay an accountant to take care of my taxes.

      Best,
      Frank

  8. VICTOR says:

    Hi. I live abroad. I live in Mexico City and was wondering if I can do it here, like, can I afiliate local companies?
    Thank you much Frank.

    • Frank says:

      Yes, you can Victor, however, you don’t have to only affiliate with local companies. The internet has made it possible for people to make money in just about any country in the world. Take me for example, I earn a full-time living operating my business in New Zealand. Most of my customers live abroad.

      Hope that helps.

      Best,
      Frank

  9. Veronica says:

    Hi Frank,

    Thank you very much for your post They were really interesting.

    I am just want to know the Price of the Premium member because I saw 47$ per month but you said than with you it could be 59% discount?

    Thanks!!!

    Regards,
    Veronica

    • Frank says:

      Yes, that’s right Veronica, it’s a special introductory price for the first month, but $47 per month there after.

    Thank you for this valuable information, Frank.

    I am about to watch the five videos mentioned, and I will come back with another feedback after watching them.

  12. Petrus says:

    Hi Frank.
    I am quite new at this and find your website very inspiring!! I do have one question though. Where do one get the content for your site/niche? I saw that site you build on headphones for tv, and was wondering where you got your info from. I’m having difficulty deciding on a niche due to not knowing if I’ll be able to supply enough info and how to put the info into words good enough to make sales.

    Petrus

    • Frank says:

      Hi Petrus,

      At the moment I am outsourcing the majority of my niche article creation through iWriter.com. I order what I need and the prices are very reasonable. You are charged by word count. Starting at around $1.25 for 150 words, and $10 for a decent 500 word article.

      If you’re having difficulty finding a profitable niche then read this post.

      Best,
      Frank

  17. Keena says:

    Is Wealthy Affiliate comparable to DS Domination (unit of prosperity)…. It sounds similar. Can you please tell me the difference & if Wealthy Affiliate can help me with my present direct sales business. Thanks!

    • Frank says:

      Hi Keena,
      I haven’t heard of DS Domination, but I can tell you that there is nothing in the marketplace that compares with WA. But don’t take my word for it, you can join free here and see for yourself.

  18. I really thank you for the content of your site.

    I am a complete newbie and really wants to make money online. I have been trying for the last six years now but just don’t know which and who to follow and listen to. The BS and Hype has taken over. Can you be the one to help me make some real money? I will appreciate that. Thanks.

    Matthew.

  19. Phil says:

    Good Evening Frank,

    It’s so refreshing to see your tutorial.

    Honest, straightforward and no nonsense.

    I am a member of WA, pj777777, and have been struggling with the concept of finding ‘low hanging fruit’. Although I have been finding this ‘fruit’ the traffic I have been generating has been also low as you would expect.

    Your approach just makes so much sense. It’s no use having the best site in the world (mine aren’t, but I’m progressing lol) if nobody sees it.

    Can you offer any insights into this situation and also anymore advice on back link building? My Nan used to say if you don’t ask you don’t get so please excuse my forwardness šŸ˜€

    Anyway, just had to comment on your advice and approach.

    Have a great weekend and look forward to hearing any advice you may have.

    In the meantime,

    Kind regards

    Phil

    Hi Frank,
    I’m so lucky to find your website and thanks so much sharing in great details. I’ve been trying to get into online game, but just have no clues how and what. So many questions in my head. By finding your post, I’m looking forward to join WA. Thanks!

  21. Sean Helm says:

    Hi Frank!

    Great article! I have been thinking about sstarting a paid membership for my niche market.Talking to clients they tell me it took a long time to find somebody in their area for my field. Is there a way to get all members to benefit using all blogs on one site for SEO purposes

  22. Jason Paul says:

    Hi Frank,

    Wandered upon your site looking for WA reviews, and I gotta say your site stands out the most out of everything I’ve read. Will sign up through you once I’m ready!

  23. Alan says:

    Hello Frank
    I was wondering if it is possible to earn money with the free membership and be able to work into affording the premium membership
    Thank you for your insight and information it is very helpful for newbies !

  24. nicolas says:

    Hi Frank i rely learnt alot from the information you just share great stuff but im all the way in zimbabwe will it work for me

  25. Curt says:

    Frank – What a great write up! I has been thinking about exploring online business opportunities for a while but never leaped. Then I suddenly lost my job 2 weeks ago. After sending out a few resumes I decided to check out online marketing while waiting for possible employers to call. I discovered WA, but like you, was skeptical. For the last 3 days I have gone through all the free training and am now on the verge of getting the premium membership. Your post helped me make up my mind. I have no idea if this is going to work but there is something so satisfying about working for yourself that I have to try. Honestly, the toughest part of the whole process for me was figuring out the niche market. Thanks for the great write up!

  26. Lydia Kimani says:

    Hi Frank,
    I stumbled onto your website two days ago and on reading about WA, I signed up…today I managed to finish the first course….am about to sign up for premium membership. I’d like to sign up under you….how do I go about it?….I think I’ll really need your help moving forward.

    Thank you for an awesome website.

    regards,

    L.

  28. Janelle says:

    Dear Frank ,

    I really loved reading your success story. I am happy you found the freedom and independence you so needed. I have no job and live in a home where one persons works and can hardly make ends meet. I need a solution and I think Ive found it. I have a couple of questions though:
    1. How does wealth affiliate pay you? In pay pal or cash? I dont have a paypal account and the only bank account I have is restricted because I have no cash in it (embarrassing I know)
    2. however they pay you, can you cash out?

    • Frank says:

      Hi Janelle,
      Wealthy Affiliate pays you monthly via paypal.
      I usually send the funds direct to my bank account.

    Hi Frank,

    Very nice explanation and tutorial. I will try soon.

    Best Regards,

  32. Romeo says:

    Hey Frank,
    Just wanted to ask a quick question. The premium account goes for $47. So to make a profit from the venture, I should make much more than that! Is it possible for a newbie to make that kind of money if he can’t spend more than 1-2 hours a day?
    Again I am web designer, so is it possible to create website outside of the tools provided by WA?

    Thanks in advance

    • Frank says:

      As a web designer, you’re a lot further down the track than a lot of folks who start out online and make money. And I know most folks like to get some sort of structure in place to understand how they can fit or create a business around the time they have available, but the reality is, your mindset needs to shift from apportioning a couple hours to getting the job done, to, “I’m gonna smash it and do whatever I need to do, to get the job done” attitude.

      This then creates the mental environment where your brain is constantly working, even when you’re not physically performing the action. It’s forming connections with relevant information, drawing on past experiences, making comparisons where applicable.

      So yes, it can be done with a couple hours of actionable work a day, but you need to have the right mindset for it.

  33. KeiKei Gallard says:

    I really like your website. A lot of info

  34. Thanos says:

    Hello, all of this is very interesting!!!

    I just have one question…
    Do i need to become an affiliate on a company i.e. amazon or else prior to creating my website?

    • Frank says:

      Hey Thanos,

      Thanks for your questions.

      No, you don’t have to become an affiliate with any company before you create a website. It is actually best to create your website first as some companies ask to see how you will be promoting their offers.
