Website Open Secret: Site Build It

Here is a 2.5 minute video of Site Build It. Find out how to find success in the internet ...

For many small business owners, SBI is a sort of "Swiss army knife" for non technical webmasters. SBI offers the necessary tools most important for success:

  • Web hosting
  • Website builder (no tech knowledge required)
  • Niche and Keyword researcher
  • Lively Forum
  • Good Support
  • The SBI Action Guide...

The SBI Action Guide is the actual guide you will use to build your online business. It's a great way to evaluate SBI before making a purchase. Highly recommended to go through it before deciding.

The list goes on and on. Maybe the best way to understand Solo Build It, though, is to "tour" it. You can tour it 3 ways...

  1. You can take the long, guided tour, to learn EVERYthing you want to know about SBI, OR...
  2. You can take a 5-minute slideshow tour for a quick peek
  3. You can take the video tour, where you'll glean the high points in a nutshell

Since we are talking about success here are SBI websites topping their own business niches. Whats amazing is that most of them are done by ordinary people like you and me but with passion and knowledge:

There are people who work for SBI, from Al the Graphic Guy to Jim and Judd, who answer questions by email and many others.

And then... there are the SBI forums, chock full of fellow SBI users who volunteer their time to answer questions, offer tips, and critique your SBI website in a warm, friendly and wonderful way. "Pay it forward" is the culture on the SBI forums, and it's not just rhetoric. It's real.

If you want to get a feel for what SBI can do, check out some of their free tools:
