SBI! makes online business success do-able. Anyone can succeed with the Site Build It! all-in-one process, tools, and guidance.
As I've been working on the change from running an offline business to running a successful online business that has shown increasingly good results, people have been asking me how they can achieve a similar level of online success with their business.
How did you build a high-traffic website? How do you make money online? How can I quit my day job and have a home based business of my own? Will you mentor me?
These questions have propelled me to write this article to introduce you to the practical solution I have found for people who want to build a successful online business of their own without getting lost on a mountain of technical details, using essentially the same business model I used to build Bookkeeping-Basics.net.
Sounds good you say? Great, let's get started!
I started Bookkeeping-Basics.net in mid 2008 after having already been running an offline business part-time while working part-time for a CPA as well. While my offline business has proven to be successful, it has also shown itself to to be quite needy in the way of time and energy needed to keep it growing. This has been somewhat of a problem considering one of the main reasons I personally wanted to go into business for myself was so that I would have MORE time to spend with my two beautiful children who are growing far too fast right before my eyes! :)
So, I decided I should develop an online presence as well and fortunately ran across SBI where I learned about a successful entrepreneur named Ken Evoy. Ken is the founder of SBI, a wonderful service that helps people build income-generating web sites for ANY kind of business. SBI provides complete hosting as well as an extensive suite of tools to help you build traffic and generate meaningful income. This is all a part of the magic.
The process is simplified to such a degree that success (i.e., profits, not the mere presence of a Web site) is achievable even for a beginner. (Like me!) For an experienced person, achieving success is even smoother. SBI! really does change lives. In just two short years, putting in minimal time on the tax off season, I had over 400 visitors a day to my website. And this in turn translates into money in my pocket.
Meanwhile, the traffic keeps growing and growing in a snowball like fashion. Now going into my 3rd year, I have over 1,100 visitors a day! I can't tell you how exciting and motivating this is. It really, really works!!
SBI! removes the technical barriers allowing you to keep your attention on building your business. Many functions are completely automated. You don't need to know anything upfront about building a Web site in order to succeed. The tedious, "under-the-hood" stuff is handled automatically so you can focus on other important business-building activities. This was very important to me as a newby. I just wanted to write about what I know, and SBI allowed me to do this with their automated tools.
The Action Guide presents a step-by-step process, presented in both written and video formats. All you have to do is follow it. Really! All I did was follow the Guide. I didn't get sidetracked, or have to guess at what to do next. SBI!'s guided approach helped me reach my goals. Anytime I'm at a loss for what to do next, I just go right back to the guide and immediately come up with a brainstorm of ideas to work on next. I find the creative process to be extremely enjoyable.
SBI! comes with unlimited Customer Support. SBI! owners often call it the best they've ever experienced. And the SBI! Forums complete the picture. They are the most friendly, help-and-be-helped set of e-business forums in the world. There's nothing like having access to the friendly advice of those who have come before you. Sitesell is also on Twitter. Make sure to check them out and click follow so you don't miss out on anything valuable.
Too many non-SBI! sites start without profits being "built into" the process from DAY 1. It all begins with the right process. Content, Traffic, Presell, Monetize is the underlying, logical and powerful process that capitalizes upon the fundamental realities of how people use the Web. C T P M puts you on a solid, profitable business foundation.
Choosing your best site concept is not always as obvious as you might think. Brainstorm It! and Niche Choose It! show you the best path for your particular business, reveal some surprises, and help you make the right choice.
Monetize It! helps you choose the best monetization options for your site concept. Creating a diverse monetization mix will help you maximize your site's profitability and ensure long-term growth. This was especially surprising for me, as I initially started my website for marketing my services only. But, with SBI I learned how to initiate monetization and immediately started making a passive income online as well. An extra $200 a month within 3 months - Hurray! And that has continued going up almost EVERY month so that now 3 years later I'm up to an extra $1,000 a month - It feels like the sky is the limit!! :-)
When it's time to create your site's Look & Feel, SBI! provides fully customizable, easy-to-use templates. You can choose and create a professional-looking presentation, even if you have no design skills. And if you're a designer, you can create and upload your own.
SBI! includes domain name analysis, optimization, and registration. You will develop the best name for maximum profitability in your niche. (It's often different than what you had planned.)
Fast, reliable, state-of-the-Net Web site hosting is all included with SBI!. You don't have to worry about choosing the right "hosting" features (size, capacity, etc.). Web hosting is included, no nonsense, no hidden clauses.
To announce your site to Search Engines, you need to submit a specialized file called a "Sitemap XML" file. SBI! does it all automatically, a huge time saver, that enables you to quickly achieve wider distribution and attract more targeted free traffic.
Search Engine spider/listing/ranking reports let you see how your pages are being handled by the Search Engines. You can see what pages rank best and drive traffic. Each report's insights help you to determine how to increase traffic and monetization. Most pros don't have easy and reliable access to this type of information. I highly recommend you join their affiliate program to give you an extra passive income stream. (To learn more about their affiliate program, scroll to the bottom of this page)
You Get All the Tools, Training, and Support You Need to Build Your Own Profitable Online Business Website
SBI! includes an easy-to-use form builder with autoresponders. You can build contact forms, surveys, and polls to easily communicate with your visitors. You don't need to use your e-mail address, which attracts spam. Experienced users will appreciate no longer needing separate form-building tools. Having these tools all in one place saves time and expense, too.
List-building and e-mail marketing are included (usually these expensive features are bought separately). Sign up visitors to your e-zine subscription list and then mail an issue to them. This repeat exposure builds a stronger bond with your visitors and allows for direct promotions to them. Deeper PREselling = More Monetization. Everything included is truly incredible.
Automatic site blogging turns your site into a blog easily. You'll enjoy all the benefits of a blog without needing extra skills or additional software. For those experienced with blogging, auto-pinging for your SBI! blog keeps your site on the Search Engines' radar. All of this helps attract more traffic.
SBI! has a no-risk, 30-day money back guarantee. It's a risk-free decision that you can make with confidence and peace of mind.
The various HQs ("Traffic," "Tips 'n Techniques," "Resources," "Monetization" and several others) keep you on the cutting edge of all that you need to know. No other "outside reading" is necessary (except for info related to your own business, of course). There are membership sites that charge hundreds (even thousands) of dollars for this type of invaluable information.
The SBI! private forums provide friendly, helpful support from other Site Build It! users. Help is available from folks who are in the same place as you. This peer-to-peer support gets you over the humps along the way in a stress-free environment. Help is available even for advanced questions. The forums are a business-building support community ready to help you succeed.
SiteSell.com was established by Dr. Ken Evoy in 1997. His series of books have helped hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs and small businesses. Make Your Content PREsell! and Make Your Words Sell!, formerly books sold by SiteSell, are now free. They are literally the dynamic duo of "Web-writing."
Ken Evoy provides a rare level of dedication to his customers. He's extremely active in the SBI! forums with over 5000 posts to date. He makes a tremendous personal effort to help people succeed and is highly passionate about helping people build businesses online. Anyone who owns SBI! can benefit from this extraordinary Internet business visionary.
I highly recommend that you to look into Site Build It! to see if it makes sense for you and your business. You should start with the SBI home page, watch the 2-1/2 minute video there, and then follow any of the links that interest you. The 30 minute video tour is a must do. It really helps to clarify everything for you. The video tour starts out very motivational and then it dives into the details of how the tools and monetization strategies work, using real web sites as examples. I think you will find it interesting and educational even if you only have a limited interest in making money online.
If you really want to do your homework, you should consider checking out some of the successful results submitted by their customers as well as their in-depth case studies. If you have any questions about Site Build It!, you can submit them via the questions form, and you'll get an answer from a real Site Build It! owner/user.
