Yup…

That cheap…

Just give me few minutes of your precious time and I’ll walk you through these few steps (7) to show you exactly How to Build Your WordPress Website From Scratch quickly, easily and really on a tight budget.

Yup…

Only $9.99

You know, I am SO PROUD of what I put together in this article. 

That’s just because I’ve been at this for a while now literally repeating these 7 steps for more than a decade building a portfolio of niche sites generating my company, as we speak, at minimum $7,000.00 monthly, not individually but as a whole, consistently and most importantly passively since 2018.

I started this journey not soon as I got out of college back in 2015. But a little later, in 2017. And it was only in 2018 that one of my sites started to take off. At that point I got excited enormously. Not for the money but because I felt like I cracked the code. 

And I did. 

Otherwise I wouldn’t be able to sit today and freely sharing it all with you. In fact, I can’t be more pleased to show you the road map to where I got. And how I went about move mountains all along the way most importantly. Because you see, the road to the top it’s fun because it keeps you busy day in day out. But once you reach the top you miss being that busy and it may get lonesome. 

Can’t find better ways to spend my time…

And the what’ll show you today, the website that you are about to build, will look and operate just like all of mine, that is 1) looking great, 2) be well optimized for the search engines, 3) have what it takes to do spectacularly well on social networks and 4) make people scream: “This is so cool I need to share it with my friends!”.

And let me tell ya, on the internet, just like off it, get someone to talk about you, that is to share your article and your website and the content your provide and you know you cracked the code.

And that‘s in here too

WodPress along with SitGround is what I use to build and run all my niche sites whether it be Web Money School or any of other niche site in my portfolio. Both companies offer an amazing service and stupidly easily interfaces that’ll make you say: “Hell, you can teach an old dog new tricks!”. Both companies are so EASY to use and make the perfect marriage when it comes to build a website that’s meant to be the shit.

No further ado – let us jump right into these 7 stupidly easy steps to turn an idea into the ultimate WordPress money  machine niche site absolutely from scratch.

Let’s go..

Step 1) Getting a Domain Name and Web Hosting

To choose a domain name and register it while securing yourself a hosting account is the smartest thing to do at this point. And that’s step number one.

This is by no means the “most important step” as far as Building a WordPress Website From Scratch goes nor the “most difficult”. But it does set the foundation for what’s to come next. So don’t rush it but rather find your best self to avoid overthinking stuff too much here and now.

Just be smart about it.

A lot of people I’ve dealt with in the past seems to take AGES to be done with it. 

And what they do is spending hours upon hours choosing the “perfect” niche, then hours up on hours choosing the “perfect” domain and hours up on hours choosing the “perfect” hosting company. Not to mention all the time it usually takes these “perfect” fellas to choose the “perfect” theme for the site and the “perfect” logo. Oh, almost forgot to mention the time it takes them to find the “perfect” content to write about along with the “perfect” article to publish etc, etc…

You know well what I mean…

And BELIEVE ME I could go on and on pointing fingers, but I am afraid that I would only inspire you, lead you rather, along the same path. Yet again the folks I mentioned above, victims of a vicious cycle , are not to judge , but rather to learn from, I am using them as a lesson. 

Simply because all that pursuit of perfection leads rarely, if ever, to perfection.

You don’t want to be perfect…

You want to be smart

Here’s how to be smart about getting a domain and web hosting.

Everything start from the niche you set your site is going to be about. And although I have The Smartest Guide On Choosing A Niche That Work on the Internet. And a weekly show on YouTube every Monday about finding a niche plus a niche site ideas list I update religiously every week. 

You don’t need to go ahead and check it out. 

This is not like getting married you know, your first niche site is meant to get you started. In fact I would say that learning How To Build A WordPress Site From Scratch is rather more like buying your first car. A reasonably “cool” one’ll do for now.

Here’s how I chose the niche site I am building today’s WP site about in less than 5 minutes.

And I did it by simply typing into Google “weird animal facts” and choosing “anglefish” off the list ranking 1st Google prompted me at my query “weird animal facts”. 

And of course before I settled for it, I simply validate the niche by taking a look at the search volume for “anglefish” and the Google competition for it. 

You know, how many sites are out there talking about it.

Greenlight..

Niche Site Idea: Angelfish

Now it’s time to register a domain by going smart about it. And by that I mean settling for an easy yet catchy and brand-able domain. 

Something like anglefishzone.com

Domain Name: Angelfishzone.com

I head over to SiteGround, the most reliable, secure and fast hosting company of all time…

And after clicking “GET STARTED” down “WordPress Hosting”

Get Domain and Hosting #1

I continue by clicking “GET PLAN” under the BEST SELLER “GrowBig”section…

And that’ll be the hosting plan I’ll get in few steps to come as it’ll allow me to host unlimited website compared to only 1 the StartUp plan allows.

And that’s just for $3.00 difference.

Only $3.00 difference…

AWESOME 

Right!?

Now it’s the time to make sure that Angelfishzone.com is available. 

And by clicking “PROCEED” big blu-sky button I see that…

Get Domain and Hosting #3

It is.

Happy Days.. 

So I go ahead and seal the deal.

WOW..

Easier done than said I guess hey..

Get Domain and Hosting #5

As you can see above I claimed my hosting account and all along my lovely domain name.

I am ready to rattle n roll, rock n roll and jazz it up

I hope you had a great time claiming YOUR hosting account along with YOUR brand new domain name.

You should’ve received an email of confirmation like the one you see below.

And by scrolling down yourself you’ll see two links under “Point Your Domain To Your Site “

Those links are called DNS and you’ll use them in the future for sure. 

Don’t worry you can always grab them straight from your SG dashboard. And you’ll use them because next domain you’ll get yourself you’ll get it from say, GoDaddy.com. And once you grab it you’ll need to point it towards SG changing the DNS from GoDaddy. Once that’s done you’ll be able to mange your domain and install WordPress for free right from SG.

I’ll show you how that’s done too okey?

Just you want to refer back to this guide and repeat it all back for you second niche site 

By the way,

CONGRATS…

You now own your first digital asset, that is your DOMAIN NAME.

 Now you’re jet-set to install WordPress and bring your idea to life for the internet and everyone in the world  to see and enjoy.

And start making some of that good old dough…

But before we get to it, I need to introduce you to WordPress that we’ve just installed and do some cleaning and install a theme and few plug ins. 1) Cleaning because WP it’s a smart CMS (Content Management System) that comes pre installed with a theme and other features we can and should remove to set uniqueness 2) Install a theme because we need to give our website a look and feel that’s our own.

And I found out, after  years and years, few themes that seems to convert pretty well 

And surprise, surprise…

These themes I’ve been in love and list here are all FREE 

That’s a list of all my favourite themes that I installed on my niche sites and recommend others to install because again they are a) AWESOME, b) beautiful, c) light & fast and 3) free.

Let’s go

Step 2) Setting up and familiarizing with WordPress

Let’s make it happen

And for it I’ll click “SET UP SITE”

Get Domain and Hosting #7

And to begin the wizard all I do is hit that “SELECT” button.

And by the way what’s going on here is…

SiteGround, compared to all other hosting services has, just lately, added this wizard so that if you got started, like I did in the beginning, the MANAGED “WordPress Hosting” straight up…

Few clicks (3 as you’re witnessing) and WordPress along with basic set up for safety and speed would be installed and yours site is live in NO TIME at all and NO HASSLE at all.

You could literally teach it to an over 80 and he could pull that off effortlessly…

That’s why I said “Hell, you can teach an old dog new tricks”

SiteGround makes sure EVERYONE, not only millenniums,  find it super fun and cool to learn How to Build a WordPress Website From Scratch

Do you believe that now?

Next it’s just to re make sure the application we want to use to bring our site to life is WordPpress

And since it is…I’ll click “CONTINUE”

Last but not least SG recommends their…

Let me tell ya…

AMAZING…

Site Scanner, nothing but, again, an AMAZING monitoring service that checks your website daily and immediately notifies you if your website has been hacked or injected with malicious code for only the amount you see below.

I will not add it myself…

And I will love to see you do the same.

I do however want you to understand that keeping your site safe it’s SUPER smart since as your site starts attracting your first 10 visitors per day headed to you first 50…

It basically automatically starts attracting internet “thugs, thieves and goons”

And that sooner or later you’ll have to pay someone to protect you from these folks out to ruin ya or even steal your site all together…

Don’t be mad at these “thugs, thieves and goons” because it’s just in the normal scheme of things and besides it’s just on more reason to understand that the internet works EXACTLY like the “non-digital world”a

Get Domain and Hosting #10

Now we’re literally ALL SET

And even if we are

 SG, righteously presuming that someone is a complete beginner and no clue on how to more on forward, it prompts yet another 3 steps wizard but now to install a theme and few plug ins to get started smartly.

And although I would love to tell you to hit “EXIT”…

I am not…

I want to show it what SG does and so I clic “START NOW”

how build a WordPress money machine website from scratch (13)

Here as you see I typed “Mission News”

And that’s the name of the theme we want to install it on our site..

But nothing come up…

That’s just because not all free themes are available in WordPress free themes directory.

So I’ll click “CONTINUE” 

Have no worries as the default theme that was installed automatically when we installed WP would be the one still activated as the theme of your site

So yeah, I’ll click “CONTINUE”

how build a WordPress money machine website from scratch (14)

Although from experience I know jetpack is something useful to have installed on your WordPress site, just it is WooCommerce and Contact Form…

I am just going to click once again “CONTINUE”

Again I just wanted to show you how thoughtful SG is and that’s how they do it!

You’ll see the same approach when contacting them through the LIVE chat, by the way available 24/7 all days around he calendar.

So I’ll click “CONTINUE” without selecting anything from the recommended useful functionalities.

Next SG makes sure that you know about marketing and recommends few plug ins to get you started.

But I will not select none of them.

Again, not because they are no good or anything

But simply because as far as Google Analytics, that is tracking your traffic and their behaviour on your site, those famous cookie things, we will do the PRO way in the next steps. We will sign up for a little thing called Google Tag and from there install all of our cookies so we can track and study our traffic and its behaviour on our site.

As fas as SEO, which is nothing but the acronym that stands for Search Engine Optimazation, basically as the name implies optimize your site and the content therein to the search engines (e.i Google)…We will install a different plug in called Rank Math as opposed to SG recommendation.

Not because SG’s recommendation is no good, I’ve been using a different one in the past year and half on 3 of my niche sites that I own and operate just to test out new plug ins and new themes and new stuff in general and I have been loving. 

And lastly, I won’t install OptionMonster neither to start growing subscribers list because that’s something we need to account for when we hit that 50 visits a day. Only then it’ll make sense. Until then our main enjoyment will be in dive into the topic the site is about, that is the niche market we bet on and build expertise, authority and trust in it as a site and as a brand. And again one we reach to 50 visits a day we’ll talk about growing a list. And we’ll use a different company. 

Not because SG’s recommendation is no good. But because a little well known company known as MailChimp is just the shit and has an incredible FREE plan up to a list of 1k subs. Something that no other company have. We’ll integrate MailChimp with another email grabber service called SumoMe.

So I’ll go ahead and click “CONTINUE”

And That's How It's Done Fellas

On June 9th, 2016 at 10:36:21 UTC (or Coordinated Universal Time) I registered my first hosting account and bought along my first domain name for less than a whopping $6.99.

Not a lot of money. Not very impressive.

But what happened next is AMAZING.

Over the course of the next year I went on to use the same hosting account to host my second domain name, bought on January 5th, 2017 at 16:25:25 UTC, to build a a simple WordPress site now generating well over 2k/month. And a site with these numbers is worth well over $ 74,250.00.

Yup…A site is worth about 30x what it earns.

The website is still operating and growing by the way and it produces revenue of profits every single month for my business. But when I started I only spent $6.99, no traffic and no idea of the market I got myself into.

You know building an income online, especially on Google, doesn’t require big budget nor a lot of knowledge. As matter of the fact you should never, ever, spend neither a lot of money nor more than an hour when testing any idea online to build an income. In fact, once you have a hosting account, the likes which allow you to host unlimited websites, you should start by picking a random niche with a random domain name.
