Setting Up Your Website with Bluehost
Having a website to host your pre-sell page content on is at the core of my affiliate marketing system.
TO GET STARTED HERE ARE A FEW QUICK STEPS:
- Getting A Paid Hosting Account (don’t worry this will be cheap)
- Buying A Domain Name (Domain Name is what you call a web address i.e. johncrestani.com or .net / .co / .info)
- Setting Up Hosting
- Installing WordPress
- How To Install the Clickfunnels Extension
STEP #1: BUYING A DOMAIN NAME
STEP #2 SETTING UP A HOSTING ACCOUNT.
ACTION STEP: Click HERE to buy your domain and signup for hosting with Bluehost. I have provided a visual guide of the steps below.
– IMPORTANT UPDATE (April 2018) …If you don’t use the above link and just go through bluehost.com, the setup process will be much different. You will be up-sold on many different products such as e-commerce extensions after you register which are not necessary and it will not automatically install WordPress. I asked if they could make it different for my students than they do for the general public to make it more simple and how I explain. They agreed.

BLUEHOST STEP #1
BLUEHOST STEP #2
Choose your plan. If you can afford it, I would highly suggest going with the ‘Plus’ or ‘Prime’ plan as you get unlimited storage and domain privacy (helps a lot).
If your budget is tight (I’ve certainly been there) go ahead and choose the ‘basic’ plan. You can upgrade later if needed.
BLUEHOST STEP #3
Choose your free domain name or bring over your current domain. Both are very easy processes.
BLUEHOST STEP #4
Enter your personal details.
BLUEHOST STEP #5
Choose your plan and any extras which are optional but not necessary. With Bluehost, you don’t pay monthly; you pay yearly, calculated by a monthly rate.
If you chose the ‘Basic’ plan, I would highly suggest getting domain privacy.
BLUEHOST STEP #6
Enter billing information to complete the registration.
BLUEHOST STEP #7
Now it’s time to create a password. Click the blue button which says ‘create your password’.
Type in your desired password then click the box to agree to the terms of service. Then click ‘next’.
BLUEHOST STEP #8
Click the ‘Login’ button to login to your new Bluehost account.
BLUEHOST STEP #9
Bluehost has made it super easy to install WordPress and start a blog. Pick a theme! – How you want your site to look. This isn’t very important since we are going to actually use Clickfunnels to build all of our pages.
BLUEHOST STEP #10
All done! You are now ready to see your WordPress dashboard and begin building your blog. Click “Start Building”
BLUEHOST STEP #11
You should now be in your WordPress dashboard! – Let’s activate your blog. Click “Bluehost” on the top left menu.
BLUEHOST STEP #12
Click “Launch” – Don’t stress, you will not have millions of people viewing your site.
BLUEHOST STEP #13
Give your blog a title and tagline. It doesn’t really matter what you pick honestly.
BLUEHOST STEP #14
Congratulations! Now you have your website, and you have wordpress installed. All you need to do now is install the Clickfunnels plugin to connect it to your site.
Just click ‘Plugins’ on the left side of your screen when you’re logged in, and search for ‘Clickfunnels’ and install the plugin.
This will be detailed in the next step of the system setup.
Congratulations! You have officially started your website. This is only the beginning of an exciting journey for you. If you have any questions or issues please leave a comment below or contact my support at firstname.lastname@example.org
Student Spotlight: Luis Nakamoto
Luis Nakamoto is from the San Fernando Valley in California, and one of my very first students.
He’s earned over $44,516 PROFIT in a single month from affiliate marketing, and has been earning hundreds of thousands of dollars every year.
He was destined to continue the family business, and work at his family’s Peruvian restaurant, but he had bigger dreams than that.
Luis went down the path of searching for a business that could afford him Freedom, rather than being subject to the confines of restaurant work all day.
He tried out a few network marketing companies at first, and then came across affiliate marketing, eventually to learn about the experiment I was doing, when I was taking on my very first students.
Luis was incredibly persistent about becoming a student of mine, and started learning from me when all I had to offer was a link to a Google Drive folder where I stored some of the video files I had been recording.
Here are some excerpts of an interview I conducted with Luis when we were at an affiliate marketing conference a few years back.
When he started, he had far less than any one of my students has to start out with today. He had:
- No Clickfunnels
- No weekly webinars
- No support
- No recurring revenue affiliate programs
Yet he was incredibly persistent, and an incredibly hard worker, and has created many hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of income for himself.
Luis started out by using the same method of affiliate marketing that I still prescribe today: Facebook Ads > Presell Page > Offer.
Luis was advertising health related products, all over the world, and was able to generate massive results, I have posted a screenshot of some of his results below.
When you look at his incredible results, keep in mind that times change. Facebook no longer likes people advertising dieting products on their ad network, which is why I recommend you get started with promoting my products on Clickbank, or my affiliate network below.
If you’d like to follow Luis on facebook, you can add him here.
Make sure you are registered for my weekly sessions to get feedback from yours truly, and get the most out of the course.
Apply For 1-on-1 Coaching
We have a few successful ex-students who are now coaches with the Super Affiliate System. Because we only have a limited number of highly trained coaches, there is an application process to work with them. Working with a coach can help accelerate your success in this new industry, help surround yourself with successful digital marketers, spend your ad dollars more wisely, and overcome any roadblocks that you come across quickly in this industry. I got my start in affiliate marketing by working closely with highly successful people, and I highly recommend you to do this as well.
Every quarter, we have live events where you can work with my coaches to define, create, and grow your business. We have four educational tracks within digital marketing that we address: Affiliate Marketing, eCommerce, Digital Consulting, and Info-Product entrepreneurship. My personal breakthrough in business came after I attended a live event. I have partnered with my friend Jeff Lerner to put on these events, and you can signup to speak with one of the advisors at his office in Utah to determine which event track/s are best for you to start with. I obviously recommend starting with the affiliate marketing event, but if others pique your interest, go for it!
