How to Create a Business from a Website

In this overview today, I'm going to show you how to create a business from a website in the comfort of your own home. In the old days doing this was extremely difficult and you had to know HTML coding. These days WordPress has evolved and is so simple it's almost hard to believe.

What Will You Learn?

I'll show you how to build a website from scratch and all it takes is less than 5 minutes to do. Most actions under the hood of a WordPress website are so simple that it's quite easy, even for a complete beginner, to get a website up and running in a few minutes. 

The most difficult part of building a website these days is actually writing the content which goes on the website. This overview will show you how to get the framework in place, nothing more. This framework is indeed the foundation for your online business. 

Writing the content is an ongoing process which needs to be done in order to continue getting more and more visitors every day. More content equals more visitors. I'd like you to first watch this short demo on how easy and fast it is to create a website.

This demo comes courtesy of Kyle at Wealthy Affiliate University which teaches people how to create businesses online from scratch.

What's Your Passion? That's Your Niche!

Who wants to create a business based on something they don't like? Not me, that's for sure. What do you love to do and what do you love to watch on TV? Do you have specific talents? What are you an expert at? These things can all be turned into an online business.

This method is the best way to go about building your own niche website. If you choose something that you are genuinely passionate about you are going to have a much easier time building that dream business.

Here are a few ideas to get you started with choosing a niche. Each and every one could be a niche idea that you might love or you can add your own to the list. There are literally millions of ideas.

  • Nano Drones
  • Baby Clothes
  • Apple or Android Tablets
  • Cell Phone Cases
  • Fishing Equipment
  • Womens' Fashion Accessories
  • Men's Shaving Gear
  • Weight Loss
  • Car Stereo Equipment
  • Bumper Stickers
  • Organic Foods
  • Software
  • Kitchen Equipment
  • Office Equipment
  • Photography Equipment 

I could go on and on but I think you get the idea already, right?  Again, choose something you really do love and you are already halfway to success with an online business you can love to build.  Get training and get support.  Get help to build a profitable home based business the right way.

  1. Hi there,

    Thanks for sharing Jim. I love the list of niches provided, almost tempted to nick one or two as I am keen amateur photographer and lover of organic food, hey food, gastronomy, and photography can go very well together..yeah the list is truly endless. Thanks again for sharing those ideas.

    • Most welcome Derek, there’s plenty more where they came from. I can stare at my desk here and think of three or four niches just from the things sitting there.


  2. It was an instant like when I reached your page! So informative and such an easy read. Wealthy Affiliates sure has some awesome people by the looks of things. Great Job and thanks for sharing your information.
    By the way, you make it look so easy. Is it really that easy? I have tried a lot of things and it has been information overload!

    • Thanks Merry,

      Information overload is the number one reason I joined Wealthy Affiliate in the first place. I was floundering around google and youtube trying to put the pieces together myself and was constantly being side-tracked by the so-called gurus who all had a better way of doing things. I felt like I was going backwards for over a year. I stumbled on Wealthy Affiliate by accident actually. I’m so glad I did.

      I recommend you join the starter membership and check it out with a fine tooth comb for yourself. Go through this link if you want me to help you get started (faster). This applies to anyone reading, go through that link to get extra help from me personally.
      Thanks for dropping in to say hi, Merry!

  3. Hi James, this is a great information. However, I’m a total newbie, may I ask how much knowledge in computer do I need to know to be able to do this? Thanks.

    • Hi Aby

      Well, computer knowledge and even website knowledge is not required. You will learn all you need to know by following the training at Wealthy Affiliate. It’s step by step and all the important stuff to learn is shown in video training. Now, since you were able to make a comment on my site here today, that’s about all the knowledge of computers you need. I can assure you that you will be taken care of in the knowledge sense simply by joining up and using WA.

      If you have a facebook account, then it also proves that you have enough computer knowledge. How did you cope when setting up your facebook account? If you mentioned facebook to a newbie and they said “but I don’t have computer knowledge” you would give a similar answer to what I’ve given you here. It’s very similar and nowhere near as hard as you think it is before you do it. After you do it you realize that it is a breeze.

      Thanks for commenting Abyj.

      Take care whatever you decide to do. I hope you go for it.


      I think it was Richard Branson who said “If someone offers you a fantastic opportunity and you’re not sure if you could do it, say yes anyway, and then learn how to do it after” I think this mindset applies right here too.


  4. Great information and layout. You and Wealthy Affiliates make it sound so easy. It is great to be able to jump in and see if I like it here for free. Can I bring my existing website over to Wealthy Affiliates? How do I get my website seen? Thanks for the overview, I think everyone would think to jump in and at least look around!

    • Hi Greg!

      I won’t lie to you. It’s not a walk in the park. It takes time and effort. Unfortunately in today’s society most people are not able to grasp this basic concept of working hard first and reaping the benefits later. People want instant results and if they don’t get them, they move on to the next shiny object.

      The greatest thing at Wealthy Affiliate is that they do not in any way try to convey that you will get rich quick. This very thing alone is the first thing that told me that Wealthy Affiliate is legitimate. They do not try to con you out of money with upsell after upsell. Quite the opposite in fact. They try to stop you spending money on shiny objects and keep you with just the basic requirements until you can learn for yourself what it takes. I like that.

      Indeed you can transfer your existing website (or websites) over to Wealthy Affiliate for hosting, which saves heaps of money because you no longer have to pay hosting at hostgator or bluehost etc. They take care of your website better too, site support is fast should you ever have an issue with your website.

      Your second question, how to get your website(s) seen is answered in the training. Wealth Affiliate will teach you how to do proper keyword research with the “low hanging fruit” method. They’ll teach you how to leverage social media, ppc and lots of other ways you can “drive traffic” to your site.

      As I said it does take time. If you’re willing to learn the proper way, you should definitely go for it at WA. Let me know if you join up and I’ll show you a few things inside that will accelerate you a bit. There’s so much there that it can be hard to know what to look at first. Also, stick to the training videos.

      It’s top-notch stuff, Greg. I highly doubt you’ll be disappointed.

      Thanks for visiting,

      As Spock says, Live Long And Prosper.
