I started this site as a way to drive local traffic to my local off line business, executive search and temp staffing service. (In fact there is an entire masters course dedicated to this very task called the local biz masters course.) It took a year to find SBI but it was well worth the wait and here's why...
The site took a few months for me to understand how SBI worked and to build the site and to start producing results but a funny thing happened along the way... not only did it produce results, I decide to see if I could get the site to pay for itself with a few ads here and there. I'd have to make about $25/mo to have it pay for itself so I started reading a little about monetization.
All the while my traffic kept a slow and steady rise but now the site was paying for itself and as the traffic grew so did my income. Long story short, in a little over a year, the site not only pays for itself but even in this bad economy, pretty soon it will pay me enough for a small car payment. That's exciting.
SBI! makes online business success do-able. Anyone can succeed with an all-in-one process, tools, and guidance.
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. For an experienced person, achieving success is even smoother. SBI! really does change lives.
Brainstorm It! is SBI!'s powerful keyword brainstorming and research tool. It helps you verify that your site concept has acceptable profit potential. SBIers are saved from making that common fatal error. With Brainstorm It!'s help, they know they are on track, right from the start. Brainstorm It! also helps you to find topics related to your niche that will pull in traffic and generate income.
Page creation is as simple as riding a bike with its training wheels still attached. No need to know HTML. The block-by-block builder trains you how to write a page that is both "Search Engine and human effective." It's simple, do-able and most importantly, effective site-building. The block-by-block builder is perfect for beginners, but even many "advanced" users should start with this tool. It's an excellent way to break bad habits!
You learn to "get it right" quickly (or correct bad habits) so you can focus on other traffic-building strategies. (These are also easily mastered due to "automation-and-process.")
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.
Traffic Stats and Click Analysis help you understand what your visitors like most. Understanding them helps you know what to write about, which in turn leads to more and more business.
PREselling is a concept "invented" by SiteSell, part of the C
Mprocess. The concept is simple. As small business people, you do not have a brand name that is known and trusted. So you have to build that before you can monetize. Seems obvious, right? So few people do it, or they don't do it right, online.
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.
New tools are added continuously so you can feel secure that you'll always have the most up-to-date site-building and marketing tools.
The SBI! private forums provide friendly, helpful support from other Solo 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.
The tortoise approach symbolizes SBI!'s steady-and-sure approach. It's definitely not GRQ (GetRichQuick) and keeps you from getting distracted by false promises or dead-end tools and strategies that end up costing more money. Experienced users will appreciate avoiding time-wasters that don't help you succeed. Think of it as a simple, direct, hype-free path that leads to success.
One last thing...commissions, yes I make commissions on products. I recommend good products because then I don't have to worry about refunds. I give you my honest hype-free take and if you decide to buy from me, terrific. If I am the one who helped you make a decision I hope you support me. If I am the one who made you ask more questions I hope you find your answer and that is good for you. So in short, yes I do make commissions on this site. I also hope you find that what I've presented helps you as well. That is a win win for everyone.
