Welcome to lesson 3. Hopefully, you have decided on a niche and now you want to get started making your website. The great news is, I can show you a really quick and easy way to set up a free website.
Introducing the SiteRubix Website Builder
SiteRubix is one of the easiest ways to start a website on any topic. But there is more to it than that. The slogan for SiteRubix is:“Turn Your Passion into a Thriving Business”. This is because it is more than just a website builder. It is part of Wealthy Affiliate, the internet’s number 1 affiliate marketing training center.

This is a great way to see if you really want to have a website on your chosen topic, and practice blog posting and experimenting with different website layouts.
