    Default Site Build It

    Has anyone tried Site Build It. Lynn's guest blogger on building out a site used SBI for her front porch website and I just took a look at SBI and it seems ok. Just wondering if anyone has any feedback on them?
    Thanks, Bovic

    Bovic,
    Welcome to the forum.

    I haven't tried SBI but from what I hear you have to pay monthly or yearly to use the web design software. I personally use XSitePro web design software (this is my review on Lynn's blog). It was a one time payment and you can build as many sites as you want on it. You'll need hosting of course. Lynn uses and recommends Host Gator (use code wordpress for a discount).

    Thank you Angie. This looks like a great forum.
    I read your review on XSitePro and that does sound like a good tool.
    But Site Build It says they do more than just help you put up a website. They help you with niche selection, keyword research, links and so on.
    But I'm just not sure about them.
    There idea is to build out a site with hundreds or thousands of pages of content.
    My only problem is if you spend that much time, and we are talking a year or more, and the site flops, you are out a lot of effort.
    Thanks for your reply.

    Oh I see, they have training.

    I'm not sure if you are aware but Lynn has an elite membership group where we discuss all of those topics you listed. All elite members get ALL of Lynn's products free and gets weekly/monthly webinars and much more. It's affordable and you are not stuck in any type of contract. Happy to answer any questions.

    I have researched SBI, but not subscribed. My impression is that they offer very good training and help with getting small and medium sized websites ranked well and stable. Their weak site, IMHO, is monetization and list building. They are focused on adsense, and have no provisions for adding a clean opt-in page. Also, they are very anti-blog. So, if you consider adding a blog to your site at some point, your are better of to go with your own hosting, especially with a large site of hundreds of pages.

    Kai, thank you for responding to my post.
    I subscribed to SBI over the weekend. I chatted with Mary, Lynn's guest blogger, and liked what her and Dave had to say about SBI. So now I will find out if it is worth the money and effort or not. First, I have to find a niche to work with. Putting as much effort into a website as they suggest, you don't want to pick a bum niche.
    Thanks again for your input, Bovic.

    From a technical ease of use perspective and out of the box SEO, SBI and XSitepro aren't as good as a self-hosted WordPress site.

    Thanks Mark,

    I have already signed and I'm going to give it a try.

    There is certainly a structured action plan that they provide. And there are some high quality and high ranking sites from their members.

    If anyone would like, I will post my progress?

    Vic, you are most welcome to post your progress.

    As far as SEO, I have not found any issues with using XSitePro and I have heard of success with SBI sites so as long as you optimize your sites/blogs correctly there should be no problem.

    Thank you Angie,

    I'm going to follow SBI Action Guide to the letter, just to learn if their process is a good choice. I hava selected a competitive niche, and we will see how I do.
