Questions about SBI
by Nancy Twigg
Angie, I found your website as I was doing a web search for sites built using Site Build It. I already have a website (www.countingthecost.com/index1.htm) but am considering switching over to SBI, or possibly coming up with a niche topic and creating a new website. I have tried emailing a couple of different website owners who use SBI, but am having trouble getting a reply.
That makes me wonder if SBI is all it is touted to be after all. Can you tell me about your experiences? Have you been happy using SBI? Has it met your expectations as far as producing income? Any insights you can provide will be most appreciated.
I'm pleased to meet you and try to answer any questions you may have regarding SBI. Sorry you haven't had much success hearing from other SBI users. There could be a number of reasons for that.
I, personally, would not have been able to get back with you for some time if you had written me last month as I was away visiting my family and didn't have much internet access at the time. Fortunately, I just returned a few days ago and am available again.
That's one of the beauties of building an online business - you have the freedom to walk away for a little bit and it keeps working for you anyway. :-)
So, others may have been busy, away, or just plain lazy (ha ha), I don't know for sure. However, that is really no reflection on SBI, just the individuals who are using their program.
For me, SBI has been a huge blessing. I really had no idea what I was doing when I decided to try this whole web building thing. They really do make it 'simple' but, of course, it is still work.
I took a look at your site and it seems you are way ahead of me in the technical aspects of it all. You've done a lovely job. I think SBI
will help you improve in the area of how to build in such a way that you draw more traffic to your site.
Whether you start something completely different or convert this site over to an SBI site, they will help you understand how to build the site so that you will be found for whatever niche target you are aiming for. SiteBuildIt (SBI)
has exceeded my expectations as far as teaching me to build a quality site. They have also exceeded my expectations in being a company of integrity to work with. In my experience they have gone above and beyond what they promise.
As for income, I guess I can say they have exceeded my expectations since they were very low when I started. :-) My goal was to earn back the annual fee in the first year. I earned back 5x's that amount in the first year, so I was quite pleased.
I'm in my second year and for the first half of the year I've been averaging $500-$700 per month. That's small potatoes for most people, but it was far more than I originally expected to make doing this as a 'hobby' in my spare time to make extra spending money.
I've since decided to tackle it a little more seriously with additional websites that I hope to grow into a full time income in the next couple of years.
Basically, I've been using the affiliate marketing approach where I earn commissions on sales referals. If you sell your own products or services, obviously you will be making much more because the profit is all yours. There are many variables to consider, but I can assure you that the system itself is first class and well worth the small fee of $25 per month. What you do with it is completely up to you.
Let me know if you have any further questions. Just use the comment link below, and I'll do my best to help you out. You can even ask SBI questions
directly if you like.
