This is my independent SBI review, written from the heart, to help you understand how easy it is to create your own online business (without the need to be a computer whiz). Site Build It! is the company that made this possible for me.
In case you're wondering what or who SBI is, it stands for Site Build It!, recently renamed Solo Build It!
It's the company that gave me the tools and the confidence (alongside plenty of step by step hand-holding) to build this website about Cocker Spaniels.
I've been using SBI for over 10 years.
I remember uploading my very first page and the joy I felt at seeing my work on the world wide web. Today, I still get the same thrill as I write pages or answer my visitors' questions.
If you arrived here from my About Me page, you'll already know how I came to build this website, if not, you can find out here.
I was nervous about the technical side of building a website as I had no real IT knowledge. I could use a computer for the basics and could surf the internet, but that was the extent of it!
As it turned out, I didn't need to be a computer whiz kid or have experience of programming, web design or web building. This company gives you all the tools you need, not only to build a website but to build a successful business.
And as if that wasn't enough, they help you through the entire process, step-by-step and at your own pace. They hold your hand all the way!
My site began to earn an income at the end of the first year and it continues to grow steadily, year on year. How does it do that?
As you browse
through my pages, you may have seen some Google Ads.
Well, at the moment, this is where my income comes from.
Each time someone clicks on a Google Ad, it earns me a small amount of money.
There are many other ways to earn money with your website; for example, you could sell your own product or other people's products and receive a commission for each sale, or you could write an e-book and sell it on-line.
There are many possibilities, but don't worry if you've no idea how to do any of this. SBI! will show you how to make the most money from your site.
I've put a lot of time and effort into my website about Cocker Spaniels, and it's been hard work, but it's also been extremely rewarding and as I said earlier, after 10 years I'm still loving every minute of it!
(By the way, that's my precious Cocker Spaniel, Max, in the photo below. He's the real boss of this website!)
There are times when I wake up in the middle of the night with an idea, and I'm so excited about it that I want to get out of bed and start working!
I've not felt like
that in a long time.
Since discovering SBI!, I can honestly say it's changed my life!
I've regained the sense of purpose and direction that I lost when I retired.
The ongoing development of my site gives me a satisfying sense of achievement and fulfillment, something which was sadly missing after I gave up work.
It gives me the intellectual challenge I need to keep my mind sharp and has given me something to leap out of bed for in the mornings, well, almost leap!
I sincerely wish I'd learned about SBI! much sooner!
I often think of all those years wasted working for someone else, being unable to be there for my family as much as I would have liked. How I would have loved to be a 'stay at home' Mum!
Although I didn't discover SBI until my retirement, (and I'm so grateful for that) I wish I'd found it long ago. Things could have been so very different.
It's too late for me to turn back the clock, but it may not be too late for you.
That's why I'm letting you into my 'secret'.
letting you into my secret so that it may help
to provide a solution to your dreams"
You may be a 'stay at home' Mum (or a working Mum who longs to be at home with her children) looking for an extra income.
You may be about to retire, or you're already retired, and looking for something exciting to do, or you may need to top-up an ever-dwindling pension income.
There are many successful SBI! websites built by ordinary people like you and me. Take a look at these case studies. They'll give you an insight into what other SBI! owners are doing and may give you a few ideas of your own.
Cocker Spaniels are my passion, but it could just as easily have been cycling, fishing, photography, cooking or propagating roses.
Your web business can be about any topic. You could simply write about something you know well, or have a passion for, such as a hobby or an interest.
Although earning a living doing something you enjoy may sound like basic common sense, how many of us do it?
Most of us are in work because we need to earn money but very often we don't actually enjoy the work we do.
SBI! could help you to work towards your dream.
Their package comes with unlimited customer support, and the private forums are fantastic.
(The forums are where other SBI! users give you help and support when you need it most. Ask a question and it's answered for you by other users who've already 'been there, done that'.)
There's always someone willing to help you, no matter what stage you're at.
SBI! even gives you a comprehensive Action Guide (both in written and video formats) which will take you, step-by-step, through the entire process of building your website business.
It's easy, all you have to do is follow the guide.
Believe me, if this technically challenged individual can do it, you can too!
Whatever your circumstances, I sincerely recommend you give SBI! a try and see what a world of difference it could make to your life. I promise you, you won't regret it.
There's even a version of SBI! for Wordpress owners!
Unfortunately, if you search online for SBI or an SBI review, you're more than likely to come across fake reviews.
I know they're fake because I've used SBI for over 10 years. I know and trust SBI. SBI gives you all you need (and the support) to build a successful business, not just a website. The forums offer an unmatched sense of community; generously helping those who need it.
These fake SBI reviews have prompted me to write this page in the hope that it can help in some way to set the record straight.
Ken Envoy (SBI's founder and owner) and his team carried out a professional, in-depth study into the claims that these fake SBI reviews were making.
If you'd like to check it out for yourself, here's a link to the full study.
It's rather lengthy, so if you'd rather cut to the chase and go directly to the results here they are.
They clearly show that the claims WA is making are simply not true and the results clearly speak for themselves!
Thanks for listening. I hope I've helped in some small way and I wish you all the very best for your future venture - wherever that may take you.
