Re: Does Site Build It (SiteSell) Really Deserve Its Excellent Reputation?

Do You Want To Build A Blog Or A Business?

Like a lot of people, you're thinking of creating your own website (or you wouldn't be reading this page).

If you're a tech-head, then this is a simple proposition. If you're not, then how do you go about creating a website?

One route to take is to pick up some webpage building software and learn how to put webpages together.

There can be a steep learning curve with this approach if you're not at all familiar with HTML or how websites are built in general.

Another option is to hire a web developer (see Top Design Blogs for professionally built, secure, hacker-hardened WordPress sites).

However, if you're on a small budget, then this is an expensive option as all the knowledge remains with your developer and you'll need to rehire them to make changes to your website.

A third option is Site Build It! (also known as SiteSell).

I'd heard of Site Build It (SBI) and was finally recommended to use it by a friend who'd started building her own site through it.

Now I've built websites for over 10 years using nothing more than Notepad. I've always found that the software to create webpages gets in the way, one way or another, and I've always had to delve in elbow-deep in HTML to get a webpage to do what I want.

So I was curious as to how different and whether it would be easier to build a site using Site Build It!'s point and click interface.

While, for me, it was a bit of an adjustment not being elbow-deep in HTML code...

The tools provided are eminently simple
and anyone (and I do mean anyone)
who can click a mouse can build a website

...and if you follow the Site Build It! / SiteSell philosophy, your website will make some money too!

Ok, Site Build It (SBI) / SiteSell seems to be targeted at newbies, so why should an experienced webmaster
be interested in SBI as a solution?

If you're an experienced webmaster, you might be wondering why you'd use Site Build It/SiteSell instead of one of the other hosting companies.

It has to be said that Site Build It/SiteSell is aimed at the "Ordinary Joe" and not experienced webmasters who may find the point and click interface somewhat clunky.

FTP access is through an interface rather than through an FTP application (SBI are very security conscious). If you're uplaoding or updating a lot of files, the amount of clicking you need to do may get tedious.

Also, there's no support for PHP, so if you're building webpages whose content, in part, is made from RSS feeds, then Site Build It/SiteSell probably isn't for you.

Site Build It (SBI) / SiteSell is all about content-rich (and unique) websites.

With that said, Site Build It/SiteSell stands head-and-shoulders above the competition in quite a number of respects. SBI is not just a website building system. It's a complete package that includes:

  • web-hosting
  • inbuilt autoresponders
  • it regularly submits your website and newsletters to all the major search engines (and others as well) which improves your rankings in the search engines (better rankings means more visitors) - this is usually a service that people pay for
  • it helps you optimize your webpages for the search engines
  • detailed traffic stats are available
  • park your unused domain names
  • it provides a 10-step course on how to create a profitable website that's designed for people who haven't an idea about how to go about building a website
  • it lets you research and brainstorm website ideas so you can find out if your idea will be a profitable one before you go off and spend time and energy building it
  • convert your RSS files into perfectly formatted blogs
  • finds link partners for you in the SBI network (which is huge) so you can swap links and increase your link popularity (and search engine rankings)
  • ...the list goes on.

Once I'd built my website, I pretty much had to leave it on autopilot due to other commitments. So I was very surprised when I came back to it some months later to find that the number of visitors had been steadily increasing and it had a Google PR rating of 5! This really was a website on autopilot. Not to mention the money I'd earned from Adsense in the meantime (a few hundred dollars). Site Build It!/SiteSell exceeded my expectations. It truly is a one-stop solution and from personal experience, I know it works. You really can't find any simpler or better solution to building a website anywhere!

[Note: Since I originally wrote this review, I've done little with my Great Landscape Photography website. Yet, it's become my single biggest earning website, typically bringing in $10+ per day from Adsense alone. The only conclusion I can draw is that SBI are doing something magical behind the scenes in terms of site submissions to various website directories. Wish I had this success with my other non-SBI sites!]

Who Am I? You don't know me from Adam, so why should you trust a thing I say? Well, I've been a full-time internet marketer since 2004, having chucked my 9-5 job in favor of making a living online. So I certainly know enough about marketing and selling online to keep the bills paid, and then some.

I broke free of my 9-5 job by writing and selling some niche products - astronomy software. You can read about them here: LunarPhase Pro and Jupsat Pro. LunarPhase Pro is now one of the top three software applications about the Moon. I've also written and sold the Keywords Manager application [no longer available] that makes it easy to create and prepare keyword lists for Google Adwords Campaigns, and SiteBuilder Elite [no longer available] which lets you quickly create dynamic, SEO optimized, monetized websites with the click of a button (a different approach to SBI). I'm also the founder of Top Design Blogs, which provides pre-built WordPress blogs that are secured and hardened against hackers. The blogs are also search engine optimized in various ways to help them rank better in Google.

As an aid to help me select hot Clickbank products to promote, I wrote a software application called Clickbank Elite (which is no longer available).

My various websites bring several hundred dollars per month [and rising] in Google Adsense earnings. I make a few thousand dollars each month through affiliate marketing, selling everything from gold and silver coins to internet tools. And I provide information for people who want to make a living online at Internet Marketing Strategies.
