If you’ve arrived at this page, you’re probably at least a little bit curious about SBI and what Site Build It (now known as Solo Build It) can do for you. Maybe, like me, you've seen or even tried several ways to earn extra income online.
And you may be thinking, “This system is like many others I've seen. I’ll keep reading until I find the 'fatal flaw', then I can cross this one off my list.”
This is the thought process I went through many times, searching for a program that would work. Every time, I found a flaw, or catch, or hidden surprise…
After using SBI to build and launch this site in June of 2011, I worked on creating content. I followed the SBI action guide, which lays out the whole process step-by-step.
I made no effort to monetize until April, 2012. One month after placing ads on the site, it was already earning more than its own expenses!
My site was still very young then, but I expected it to follow the path of many other successful SBI sites. Many of these SBI owners were making some much-needed extra income each month. Some were making more money with their sites than they ever did working their old "day jobs".
The difference between SBI sites and most others is the C-T-P-M process, and it's built into everything I do with my pages. C-T-P-M stands for Content Traffic PREsell Monetize, and is based on how people use the Web.
It begins with content I create - the pages and images on my site. They reflect my knowledge and understanding of the topic, and help the visitors looking for valuable, relevant information.
My site is focused on home security, since that's what I know. You can create a site based on your field of expertise, whatever it may be.
The C T P M Process In a Nutshell:
For an overview of how SBI works, take a quick Video Tour.
Writing a good page is done by first using the Brainstorm It! research tool. This powerful keyword finding function helps you verify that your page content is not only relevant, but also very likely to be found and displayed in search results.
Then, the page is created using the Block Builder tool. This allows even a beginner to write an effective page, without knowing HTML or other complex code. If you do have some HTML experience, you can customize the appearance of your pages to your liking, and make them more appealing to visitors.
As your pages are found by visitors, SBI’s listing and ranking reports let you see how much traffic each one generates.
The Traffic Stats and Click Analysis pages show you what your visitors are looking for. This lets you give them more of what they want, building your traffic even further.
Your pages are found because of your site topic, but there are probably hundreds, if not thousands of websites with similar content.
What makes your site different?
YOU! That's what!
You bring your own experience, insights, and opinions to your chosen topic. This gives your pages a unique voice that your visitors will pick up on.
As you create more content, you'll become known an expert in your field. You'll develop a level of trust with your visitors, who will look to you as a go-to source of advice and information. This is what pre-selling is all about.
Once your visitor traffic has grown to 20-30 visitors a day or so, and you have some links from other sites, you can begin to monetize. This can come in many forms:
And many other ways.
It's best to use a combination of a few of these methods. Some will do better than others, depending on your site topic and traffic levels. As you implement each one, they will begin earning you a monthly income.
How much you earn depends on many factors, but it all boils down to your willingness to follow a proven system, and your ability to express your knowledge in your pages.
There will be some hard work involved, but it is do-able.
And, unlike the hard work you've probably been doing at your job for years, this work can build you an independent income stream that you control.
