  1. Hi Chris!

    I have been a WA user for some weeks now, and I just wanted to say that all you descriptions on the post are totally accurate and quoted for truth!

    I had really no idea of how to build a website, and since I joined WA I have learned a lot, and obviously I have a website now up and running 🙂

    The good part? It was free!!! I mean, the training you get with just the free trial is just amazing and has let me learn a lot.

    Great and informative post!

    Best regards!


  2. Hi

    Yes, website builder at Wealthy Affiliate is great. I didn’t know before that you can build your blog so easily.

    I can’t say whether it is the best website builder, but most probably it’s the fastest one.

    As for the themes I always use WooThemes for my most important blogs.

    1. Hi Luke,
      WooThemes you say? I’ll have to look into them a bit further ( haven’t come across them before! )

  3. Hi Chris , for me when I started building my first website all these technical stuff seemed like a marathon.How can I build a website alone?…I was thinking.How can I get in contact with my visitors?

    But when I used the siterubix builder inside WA I could not believe in my eyes.Although the training was clearly stating that it would be an easy and super fast process I still had to do that on my own to get convinced.

    I had a brand new website in less than a minute , empty from content but ready and working , it was live on the net.I felt something exciting at that time.I knew I had a long way ahead but I had a mission to complete , too.

    Now as I am getting experienced , these technical stuff and details seem like a fairytale of the past.I think that even a kid could build a website these days.

    Very nice recommendations as always , I hope that people will try this builder , it is only an email away.

    1. Hi Tasos,
      Yeah the website builder the WA offer as part of their deal is quite immense. I often just start of website up for experiment purposes to see what works and what doesn’t – just delete it the next day!!!

  4. Totally agree with you here, WordPress and SiteRubix have been invaluable resources to me in my online business journey. Being able to get a website up and running fast is such an incredible tool to have, along with the multiple other benefits WA has to offer. I would encourage anyone looking to join the online business world to check out WA and SiteRubix just to get their feet wet and see what this industry is all about!

    1. Great to hear that you’ve seen some success through the choices we have covered Mark – good luck with your future online efforts 🙂

  5. i think you are totally right, you need a foundation before you have a real shot of success online. That’s why you gotta have a website, and looks like you gave a really good explaination how to do it, thank you! I’ll pass this along to a few friends! By the way, when starting the website, did you use wealthy affiliate initially, or start directly with wordpress.

    1. Hi Matt,

      When I first started up I used Wealthy Affiliate from the word go! I didn’t really have any idea about WordPress or websites in general. I learned my entire trade with them! 🙂
