Two Year Trip To Independence -
is Larry Pike. I began building my first web site two years ago. In
those two years it has replaced the corporate income from both my wife
Holly's job and mine. We now work at our own business from our home and
have a 30 second commute - down the stairs. Here's how we did it and how
BUSINESS IDEA STARTED FROM A PROBLEM
was trained as a classical musician. Five years ago her arm was injured
and she could no longer play or teach music. She worked her way into a
new career as a computer systems analyst, but missed the artistic outlet
of playing music. In searching for an outlet for her talents she ended
up in a sewing store and bought an embroidery machine.
is a computer-controlled sewing machine that puts designs onto fabric.
When you see a corporate logo on someone's shirt or jacket, it was put
there by one of these machines. Holly started to make a business out of
sewing embroidery for people but quickly realized that she did not enjoy
the repetitive aspect of doing the same thing over and over again. What
she did enjoy was creating the designs so she focused on making designs
that were usable by lots of people instead of one particular company.
Holly accumulated design creations, I set about making a web site to
sell them on. I had been a competent computer user, creating
spreadsheets and simple databases in the past, but making a web site was
a whole new area for me. I searched for someone to build the site for
us, but the price quotes were $10,000 and up! Finally, I
learned a little bit of HTML from a friend, found software I could use
to make a site and launched our first site in August of 2002.
By November of 2002 we had learned more about marketing on the web and had our first month of over $1,000 income from our business. At that point, Holly left her corporate job and began working full-time on building her inventory.
PROBLEM LEADS TO SITE-BUILD-IT
six months online, we noticed that while our web site was doing well
once customers found it, the search engines did not rate it very highly.
That started my search for how to build a web site that would rank
highly in the search engines.
buying an e-book called "Google Ranking Secrets Revealed"
I knew what the search engines were looking for in a web site. I looked
at all the tools I knew about for building a search-engine-optimized web
site and thought that I was in for several hundred hours of carefully
building a site by hand. Doing one final search before starting the job,
I found Site-Build-It.
called the toll free number at 1-888-987-3669 that would let me talk to
a real Site-Build-It web site owner and met Judd Burdon (You can
read Judd Burdon’s case study at http://www.sitesellexperts.com/judd-sbi-story.html
) I asked Judd technical questions about the HTML, did it do this and
did it do that, and Judd didn't know a thing about html, yet his web
site was ranked at the top of the search engines on some very
competitive keywords. I viewed the source code for his site and it was
exactly what I was trying to make for my new site. How could he have
achieved top rankings and NOT know anything about the details of how it
IS THE ANSWER
when it dawned on me.... You do not have to know anything about the
technical aspects of building a search-engine-optimized web site as the
SBI site-building tools take care of those details for you! I bought the
Site-Build-It package on the spot and started working on my new site
that evening. A few days later, I had several pages finished and was
waiting to see how Google liked the new site.
CUSTOMER TO SITE-BUILD-IT ADVISOR
soon as I looked at Judd's sites (www.asphaltkingdom.com,
), I realized that Site-Build-It is a powerful and unique product. I
stayed in contact with Judd and when he was ready to expand the team of
Site-Build-It advisors I joined him part-time in talking with potential
SBI customers. I am totally sold on the SBI system and believe anyone's
online business would benefit from adding a Site-Build-It web site.
my corporate job on January 12th of 2004. I am currently working on
"finishing" our three current web sites. I then have two more
sites to build out. One of them will be a Site-Build-It site and the
other a subscription site.
week I see another viable way to build an online business that could do
the same thing all over again, but all successful web businesses have at
least one thing in common.... TRAFFIC! To build a successful online
business, follow the Site-Build-It process.... Content - Traffic -
PREsell – Monetize!
is based upon the fundamental reality of the way people use the Web. To
succeed online, you must start where they start...
People search for information, look for solutions -- they are not
looking for you. Give them what they want by converting your knowledge
into high-quality, in-demand CONTENT.
Your theme-based topical content ranks high at the Search Engines,
attracting free, targeted TRAFFIC... interested, open-to-you visitors.
Develop trust and confidence ("PREsell") by OVER delivering
relevant, original, high-value information to these motivated
and only then...
MONETIZE your warm, willing-to-buy visitors in various ways. Sell hard
goods, e-goods, your personal or professional services... or all three.
Or become a "pure infopreneur" and earn substantial income
without selling at all, through Google Ads, affiliate fees, finder’s
fees and other techniques.
INTERNET IS A WIDE OPEN PLAYING FIELD
started now on building your online business, but don't just put up a
web site and HOPE that people will find it. One of my favorite sayings
is.... "If a tree falls in a forest and there's nobody there
to hear it, does it make a sound?" From a business
perspective, "If a person puts up a web site and it is listed
on page 463 of the search engines, is it a business?"
Evoy says.... "No one just happens to pass by your site and notice
it. And no one is looking for you. After all, if they knew you existed,
they would not be searching. They would already be customers. No one is
looking for you at all."
talked with hundreds of people that put the cart before the e-horse by
building an online store first and not understanding that you have to
have traffic before you make sales. Follow the Site-Build-It road
from Ken Evoy....
THAT is why 51% of SBI! sites end up in the Top 6% of most trafficked
sites on the net. It's your "unfair advantage" (of course,
all's fair in love and business!)."
YOUR QUESTION IS.... "CAN I DO THIS TOO?"
Ken Evoy says.... "Not everyone succeeds at SBI!, just the folks
who want to." You can create a successful business on the web. I
can guarantee it will require customers! And NOTHING out there can give
you the RESULTS
that you can get with Site-Build-It!
