I have a confession…
In October 2008, I was a 15-year old web novice. My internet training comprised of a few IT lessons at school, which in all honesty was more of a social exercise than anything else. That was it!
Then I discovered SBI…

"The web site has allowed me to seed the market, prove the concept and create incredible buzz among the public who now go into stores demanding the product. This is how I was able to level the playing field and run around the big corporations to get my product to market."
~ Richard Bergman
"It's so logical, so efficient, and the tools make it so do-able. But you still have to do it. While SBI made this possible, we built this business. So if you are looking for a get-rich-quick, Dr. Evoy would be the first to tell you to chase after these false dreams elsewhere. If you want to own a business that makes it fun to wake up each morning, I can't say enough how much SBI has impacted our lives."

"I have also been approached by Microsoft for a nomination to recognize my "contribution" to the Microsoft online community! (only a nomination at this stage...) It is called the MVP (Most Valued Professional) award and there is no way I could have got this recommendation from my "peers" so soon, if I had NOT been using SBI!."
~ Marc Liron
"Thank you again for all you have done to develop SiteBuildIt. It has made a tremendous difference in my life. I have a hand-built site, costing almost nothing, and making $10,000 MORE per MONTH."
~ Dr. John Burch DDS
"My 7 year old son (who has a strong entrepreneurial streak) is showing a keen interest in starting a site of his own at some point. What an incredible thing it will be to show my son how to build an online business!"
~ Michelle Schill
Back to it’s roots, SiteSell (SBI) was founded by Dr Ken Evoy. Born in 1953 and raised in Montreal, Canada - Evoy went to Loyola High School and graduated from McGill
University, Montreal with first class honours. He founded SiteSell in 1997, having previously been a medical physician.
In the run up to founding SiteSell, he published several eBooks – now available for free (you can download down the bottom). Now SBI has over 40,000 members and consists of several branches including SiteSell services and SBI eLearning which is taught in over 30 Universities and Colleges including the University of Arizona and The Citadel.
Let’s talk about the SBI Site Build It process.
For those who don’t like reading – it’s best watch this video (the best 30 minutes I’ve spent of my life!). Those who prefer literacy read on!
SBI has a 10-Day (as in stages, not 24 hour periods) Action Guide which takes you through the process – which comes in video and written format; although please do select the female option for the video! Incidentally, the Action Guide is free for anyone to look at – I’ve a link further down the page; something to look forward to!
But the Action Guide doesn’t even let you register your domain name until Day 5! What do they do before that? Preparation.
This is where you formulate a list of quality keywords which people will find your site via from the search engines, fine tune it, decide on a definitive site concept, construct a site-blueprint mapping out your website in a search-engine friendly structure, develop a planned stream of income – and only then, can you advance forwards and register your domain.
Why? Because your immediately put ahead of competing sites in the fact that you’ve already got great keyword potential and ideas mapped out – all you need to do, is make it (SBI makes that easy, more of that later).
Webmasters may put up a site, some intuitive ones may “optimize it” with suitable on-page and off-page criteria to please the search engines. But if your keywords aren’t being searched (even the best webmasters can’t change what people search for!) or are insanely competitive then you’re fighting a losing battle. But SBIers already have hundreds of potential lucrative keywords before they’ve even built a page.
The keyword researching tool, ‘Brainstorm It!’ is one of literally dozens of incredible tools which puts SBIers ahead. Brainstorm It! is powered by Wordtracker – which comes at a cost of £161/$329 per year.
Armed with an arsenal of profitable keywords, you register your domain (and any others that take your fancy with SBI’s Name Park It service).
So far, you’d have had to look at multiple different services from different companies for hosting, domain name registration, keyword research (such as Wordtracker), search engine optimisation tutorials etc. – and we haven’t touched on the tools attached to your site or the support or anything else…
SBI has two methods for constructing a website. Using their “Block-builder” – no html required, low maintenance and easy to use, or you can upload your own HTML.
The Block-builder is quite literally that. You select a type of block, fill it in and build it! Block-builder is great for putting pages together quickly and dealing with simple updates. It’s by far the lower maintenance option – that’s why it’s brilliant for beginners as well as experienced webmasters.
Or you simply upload an HTML text file which you’ve built using an HTML editor such as Dreamweaver and image tools like Photoshop. This is better for more creative layouts and customisation.
Either way is entirely up to you – you can always start your site in one method and switch to the other. The Action Guide is there to help, as well as SBI three-pronged support network.
1) SBI provides it’s members with unlimited email support. Members get responses within a few hours, if not the next morning from the dedicated support team. They’ll stay with you until your problem has been resolved – no matter how trivial. I can honestly say this has been such a relief when I’ve been pressed with deadlines such as my Ezine mailout date.
2) SBI Coaching is available to people who want much more intense professional help with their specific site, offering suggestions and a more focused analysis of your site. Whilst support is a technical problem solver, coaching is a human tutor.
3) SBI Forums are there to help and be helped by fellow SBIers. You’ll find newbies, old-timers users, people in the same place as you, experienced moderators and even the founder – Ken Evoy!
If you choose the block-builder, you then go on to choose your look and feel. SBI has an incredibly extensive range of customizable graphics to build your sites appearance as well as tools to let you build your own using your own photos or graphics.
Now, moving on to Day 6, you begin to build your content. Each time you build a page you have to meet on-page search engine optimisation criteria crawled by Analyse It! – yet another SBI tool. Analyse It! crawls your page preview (before it goes live) and advises you on how to make it more suitable for high search engine rankings. This can vary from keyword density to ensuring your meta descriptions don’t confuse search engine robots to making sure you feature your main page keyword is in a link of sort (but not more than 2!).
Now, you build you page and SiteBuildIt submits the automatically created sitemap file using WorldSubmitter (another SBI tool) to the search engines – although it requires manual submission to each major search engine so they index your site. Thereafter it’s all automatic. SBI also ‘pings’ major blog directories with your latest content.
Speaking of blogs, SBI can create a Blog consisting of all your latest content (and anything else you want to add) and an RSS feed to distribute it. They also provide a newsletter software application complete with mailout and subscriber database and Spam Check It! – a powerful tool to keep your mailouts out of junk folders and in-front of your subscribers eyes. Oh, and you get unlimited email accounts with your domain (eg. your-name @ domain.com, your-mums-name @ domain.com, your-dogs-name @ domain.com etc.)
By now, your SBI site should be of reasonable size (20-30 pages) and receiving a steady trickle of visitors. The Blog, RSS and newsletter all part of retaining visitors and converting them (PREselling as Ken Evoy says…) – but how are you going to turn that trickle into a torrent? Once again, SBI tools and support are there for you – beyond a simple ‘Share This toolbar – SBI’s offering is an updated Socialize It! toolbar featuring links to FaceBook and similar sites.’
A key part to search engines such as Google deciding how to rank your website is the quality and quantity of inbound links to your site; something that humans have done in order to reference your site, giving it credibility and human approval. Search engine robots will never match the degree of judgement of that a human has, so they look for as many “references” as possible. Make sense? (Don’t worry, you can download a free e-Book at the bottom ‘Make Your Links Work’ by Ken Evoy – makes much more sense than I do!)
SBI has literally dozens of suggestions to seeding links in their Tips and Techniques section, the SBI forum and also via the SBI newsletter (SiteSell scours the internet marketing world and cherry-picks the best info to deliver to your inbox – neat huh?). But one of the best SBI link-building tools is their Value Exchange.
Picture a match-making service for webmasters (whether they’re SBIers or not) where you enter information relevant to your site, and SBI finds suitable partners for you. Link requests are exchanged and then you can swap links with people of a similar and related topic. Result? More search engine relevance.
Having visitors is one thing, but improving your online experience is a natural part to any business. SBI integrates a traffic analysis tool allowing you to analyse what your visitors are doing. Make improvements, promote what’s working and improve your results.
But without any substance to your site, you’re going nowhere. What drives your site? Content.
A system SBI encourages is C>T>P>M or Content > Traffic > PREsell Monetize. Broken down…
Content – this is what the search engines want to find. This is your keyword-focused content pages which contain the on-page hooks which people search for. This brings in…
Traffic – Visitors who come to your site. The lifeblood of any business, visitors use your website in order to achieve their personal goals. But these visitors need direction – that’s why they’re searching. Which leads you to…
PREsell – A term cottoned by Ken Evoy, essentially it’s about talking about a product (general term) and directing a visitor towards a product. There’s a key difference between PREselling and ‘hard-selling’. Think the opposite of a pushy salesman – giving direction? It’s a tricky term to describe… consult the Action Guide!
Monetize – Having used content to encourage visitors to your site and converted them, only then will you be able to make money. Many webmasters will put up a website, cash-register ready but not build the basics of driving content and converting it. So you’re just stuck sinking cash into a website without any consistent and substantial means of getting a return on your investment.
Of course, that leads us to the last ‘Day’ of the Action Guide – money making day. Monetize It! is a tool that uses Brainstorm It!’s database to search for the most lucrative keywords for you and provides suggestions on how to mine their potential.
So there you have it – an awesome way to success!
So what else comes with SBI?
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, but you get tips how to “mine” your niche using online and offline systems). This quality and quantity of information often comes at an incredible cost from self-confessed internet marketing gurus. Check Clickbank if you don’t believe me!
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. And of course you can always keep an eye on the forums for the latest ideas and tools on the net.
SBI also features an extra Content 2.0 system allowing for your site to feature user-generated content. This (properly applied) allows for all sorts of creative uses to balloon your sites content (remember that content drives the internet) increasing it’s attractiveness to the search engines. Also, contributing visitors are more likely to return to your site.
Supposing you want to integrate third-party resource into your site such as a forum or shopping cart, Infin It! allows you to plug-in limitless different systems and tools into your website.
The tortoise approach symbolizes SBI!'s steady-and-sure approach. It is definitely not get-rich-quick. Instead, it keeps you from getting distracted by false promises or dead-end tools and strategies that will inevitably 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 – that’s proven success too.
Alright, how much is this going to cost me?
SBI comes with an attractive annual-cost of $299 – remember it includes Wordtracker (under the Brainstorm It! brand) which costs more than that on it’s own! You don’t just buy a piece of online software; you buy into a proven route to success, a business-building tool and in many ways – a community.
Not convinced by the cost?
> Having already saved $30 on an annual Wordtracker subscription - which is the internet brainstorming tool used by all major web professionals.
> Most hosting is paid on a monthly basis, so for just under $25 per month, SBI is reasonable - but not the most competitive option in the industry, but that said; anyone can do good hosting.
> Your domain is included in the price. There are probably several thousand *BIG* brands that specialize in domain names – the biggest is perhaps GoDaddy.com – so browse the cost of domains and get some ideas.
> Ranking reports show you where your pages are in the Search Engines without you having to search extensively yourself. Check your performance at a glance.
> Ezine mailout and spam check software; as well as unlimited email
That’s only a handful of the dozens of SBI tools which make SBI sites successful, excluding the non-monetary elements such as the forum, the training, the research. We (SBIers) are consistent in our quality – top 3% websites with almost 40% in the top 1% of websites online – according to Alexa.
But are you right for SBI?
Every project has challenges – this is not get-rich-quick. Building businesses requires work, effort and passion. It needs BAM – Brain and Motivation. SBI needs you to create success. It needs your knowledge, your experience and your enjoyment – and it needs you to work with it. If you’re driven and want to take yourself or your business (or both!) to the next level – try SBI!
Don’t take my word for it, try it for free today!
SBI comes with a no-quibble 30 day guarantee. They’ll even let you take your domain with you if you’ve already registered it by then. Heck, you could download your Brainstorm It! keywords and use it on another site in that time.
To give you a guide of what you can do in 30-days, building this site I had already researched keywords, registered my domain and built the first 20-odd pages – and importantly, already seen some return on my investment via my Amazon Associates account. People had already found my site and purchased laptops!
