The first time I came across Site Build it website was over 10 years ago. Looking back now to that distant time, to be honest, I remember I was very skeptical as to whether or not it was the right place for me to learn internet marketing. I tried many programs on the internet but my success with my own online business was decent.
Today I can say with confidence that I’m experienced enough and know how to choose the right program out of many scams out there. All the right things that I’ve learned, I owe to Wealthy Affiliate and I can honestly say that it is the best program to learn internet marketing if you want to be successful online.
I’ve never thought that I would be able to reach such a level of knowledge, that I could give my opinion about Site Build it. There are many reviews on the internet about this company, some of them honest and some not. In my review, I’m going to be very honest and I will show you all positive and negative points of this program so that you know if it is worth your time and money.
First of all, I would like to say that all reviews that call the program a scam are not honest. Site Build It is definitely not a scam. All their trainings are informative, easy to understand and follow. They teach you how to:
Find the right keywords for your website content
Create unique content for your site
Attract targeted traffic to your site
Presell your visitors
Monetize presold traffic
Finding the right keywords is really very crucial for your success. You need to find the best ones that have lowest competition and highest traffic possible. If you choose wrong keywords, i.e. highly competitive ones, you can hardly outrank old websites, and that will be a waste of your time. SBI’s keyword research tool is based on a Wordtracker results.
I personally used Wordtracker keyword tool and I can honestly say that it is by far not the best one in the industry. I recommend you to use Jaaxy keyword tool because it is very accurate compared to Wordtracker. It is the best keyword research tool on the internet and is free up to 30 searches and if you like it you can upgrade to pro. Read my full review here. I use it very often and I’m happy with it.
The next thing Site Build It teaches you is creating unique content for your site, and that is exactly what you need to do, if you want to succeed online. You need to create unique content that is different from other websites.
You need to give your visitors a reason to come to your site and stay on it. So, this part of the Site Build It teaching is exactly what you need to know to build a successful online business.
Bringing targeted traffic to your website is as important as creating content because what is the use of a great content if no one can find your site. They teach you the right traffic techniques to apply to your site.
Preselling your visitors is very important to your site success. They will teach you how to write content in the right way to be able to turn your visitors into customers. Your content must be well structured, you need to show all the benefits of your product or service and negative points as well if they are and avoid lying to your visitors.
Monetizing visitors is the final and ultimate goal of any business owner.
What I like in SBI
So, Site Build It training is the strong point of the program. Their videos are of high quality and easy to understand.
Among positive points of the program is their 90-day money back guarantee which is very rare to come across nowadays. That means they are confident in the quality of their program, and the service they provide. You have 90 days to try their program and make a decision.
They don’t make any false promises that you will be making millions of dollars once you join their program and instead they teach you to work hard, i.e. create unique content for your site and work on it consistently.
Another thing that I like in SBI is that sending your e-zine is included in your SBI subscription.
Sitesell package includes:
Email newsletter manager
Autoresponder (like aweber, mailchimp)
Support and forum
What I don’t like in SBI
There are few points that I don’t like in SBI and would like to share that info with you so you can make an informed purchase if you plan to join SBI.
First of all, it is not clear from their website what you are going to buy, or to be exact, they give a brief explanation. However, for anyone who is new to internet marketing, it will not be enough to make an informed purchase before you buy SBI.
There is no free trial for that program and that is definitely not good. Just an example, you can try IMPHO for $1 within 7 days, or for $7 you can try Bring the Fresh or you can join Wealthy Affiliate for free within 7 days. All these programs are awesome and legit and very similar to Site Build It.
What I don’t like most in Site Build It: their website builder is really outdated compared to a WordPress platform.
The builder is easy to understand, but any website built on that platform looks like an amateur website.
Compared to that, WordPress is really advanced platform used by most internet marketers and websites built on a WordPress look very professional.
SBI offers you a limited number of templates for your website and they look very unprofessional. I personally hate unprofessional sites, because they lack in credibility and trust. Compared to it, WordPress offers you thousands of templates and they look very professional.
If you decide to move your site to a different hosting, like Hostgator or Godaddy in the future, you will face a serious problem because their (SBI) platform is different from WordPress and it will cost you money.
I found some tutorials on the internet explaining how to move your site from Site Build It to a different hosting. So, you can do it, but you will need to spend some time to figure it out.
Compared to that, WordPress is much easier to learn and use and you can easily move your site anywhere and whenever you want. For example, my site is hosted at WA and if I want I can easily move it to any hosting company within seconds.
If you need immediate technical support for your website you need to pay $19.95. That is not good at all. Compared to that, at Wealthy Affiliate you can get unlimited support any time for free, i.e. I mean it is included in your subscription.
There is a forum at Site Build It where members can ask questions and get answers and that is very important for any program. At times members have to ask the same question many times before they get response but anyway, their members are active and can help you.
So, availability of the forum is an important part of that program. Compared to SBI, if you post any question at WA, in most cases you will get many responses within minutes if not seconds.
My final word on SBI
There are good and bad reviews about SBI on the internet and if you want to know which one to trust it can be a little difficult and the reason is because the program has both good and weak points.
If you do your search for Wealthy Affiliate you can hardly find any negative reviews because the program is really awesome. And I’m a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate and honestly recommend it. My final word about SBI is that it is a great, legit program and you can join it if you want to succeed online, but I highly recommend you to try WA for free before you make your final decision.
Wealthy Affiliate is the #1 program in the world. You can read more about WA below
