We have chosen to tell you about SBI!, as we simply love it. We have chosen to use SBI! over Blogs, HTML, Web Design Tools and other ready made templates, for one reason only:
You can focus on your passion and let SBI! do the rest!
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.
Yes, there are easier ways to build a Web site. However, online profits require more than just having a collection of Web pages. SBI! includes all the tools and a proven process required to build a long-term, profitable e-business.
You get more than just a "site builder." You don't need to worry about looking for separate hosting, paying for a separate keyword research tool, handling site submissions, integrating autoresponders, etc., etc. See the full list of features here -- pick the most relevant ones for you and your reader.
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.
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! The most successful SBI! owners say "all they did was follow the Guide." They don't get sidetracked, or have to guess at what to do next. SBI!'s guided approach helps you reach your goals.
Continuous mentoring via the Action Guide and online help is always available. Learn by reading (written guide) or watching (video guide)! You are carefully guided every step of the way, which make success that much more do-able. Advanced help is also available (when you are ready for it), all designed to save you time and keep you moving forward.
Too many non-SBI! sites start without profits being "built into" the process from DAY 1. It all begins with the right process. Content
Monetize is the underlying, logical and powerful process that capitalizes upon the fundamental realities of how people use the Web. C
Mputs you on a solid, profitable business foundation.
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.
Niche Choose It! is your final decision-making tool. It uses a complex decision-matrix theory that makes choosing the best niche for YOU simple... and flawless.
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.
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!
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. This page shows a range of styles.
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.
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.
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.
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.
SBI! includes Value Exchange (VE) for finding and managing high value inbound links (another criteria for ranking highly at the engines and building traffic). This automated inbound link-building tool saves time for what is otherwise a tedious time-sucker.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Content 2.0 allows your site's visitors to create content for you. Turn any page on your site into an invitation for your visitors to add content. C2 then allows other visitors to comment and rate the page much like on a blog. This means your site will have more Search Engine attractive pages. Having more site pages means the Search Engines will rank your pages higher and that leads to more traffic. A chain of events that simply started through the contributions of your visitors!
Infin It! enables you to plug third party resources into your SBI! site. You can add forums, shopping carts, datafeeds, blogs and other server-side functionality. Infin It! brings you an SBI! site with no limits.
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.
The SBIX! weekly newsletter brings you the latest news from SiteSell and around the Web, highlighting only what you "need to know," and saves you time. You won't have to worry about keeping up with the latest online marketing developments. We do it for you. You'll stay informed but not bogged down so you'll be able to continue focusing on your business.
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."
