This is the story of how I came to learn to build a website. Have you ever seriously thought about it? Maybe I can inspire you!
I had been a freelance graphic artist for over 20 years, specializing in technical illustration and print production work for all kinds of businesses and industries. Two of the best things about my job were the flexible hours I enjoyed, and being able to working from home a good part of the time.
Ever since the internet had been around, I had thought about creating a home-based business for myself online, except that I had no idea what kind of business that could be.
Although I had many years of experience in my profession, the specialized work I was doing didn't really translate well into a business opportunity. I also didn't see a way to use any of my hobbies to make a living online, either. And since I had no experience in web design, I knew that there would also be a lot to learn. Where to start?
At the beginning of 2009, my graphics business went almost completely down the tubes along with the economy. My clients just stopped sending me work, due to budget constraints, and now I HAD to find something else.
Now, when you've freelanced as long as I have, the last thing you want to do is go back to a 9-to-5 job. But when your client base almost completely dries up, anything looks good! Of course, no one in my industry was hiring anyway, so that wasn't a issue.
Fortunately, that's about when my webmaster told me about Site Build It! (SBI). He had his own small webhosting business, and had gotten tired of servicing single-person businesses like mine, and started referring them to SBI instead. He saw that SBI gave his clients the chance to learn to build a website for themselves. SBI also provided far more of the services that a small business or individual needed to build and maintain their own website, at a fraction of what he would have to charge them.
It was the breakthrough that I had been needing. I had lots of time on my hands, so I decided to jump right in. I started learning the ABC's of internet marketing and developing a successful business online using the training materials provided by SBI — even before I had any idea of what my business would be.
The internet is full of websites with great ideas that no one knows about because they get no traffic. It's like having a real cool brick-and-mortar store located in a back alley — if no one knows you're there, it doesn't matter how awesome your store is, you won't survive!
The hardest part for me was finding a theme for my website. Most people have an expertise in something — things they learned in their jobs and careers, or hobbies they were passionate about. I seemed to have spent my life dabbling in many different interests, but never getting to be an expert in any of them — or so I thought.
With the help of the fantastic brainstorming tools that SBI provides, I was able to discover that I really did have some knowledge that would interest a great number of people. SBI also showed me how to define a target audience that would give me the best chance of success.
With the tools, the training and support provided by SBI, I've been able to build a site where my traffic builds steadily, month by month. After a little more than a year, I was getting over 200 unique new visitors every day, 6,000 a month (almost all of them from the search engines), and that number increases with every passing week. All this without any advertising — or any prior knowledge of how to build a website!
After a year spent researching, writing, and learning how to build a website, what I tell people about my experience is:
Learn to build a website and you'll have the opportunity to share yourself and what you know and love with people all across the globe.
Even better — you'll have your very own business that you can work on in the comfort of your home, at your own pace.
Now, if you're like many people, you might be saying to yourself, "Well, these people are just the exceptions — the 1% that would be successful with any business they tried. I don't think that I could learn to build a website that would be successful."
Well, this is where SBI shines! The SBI formula is designed to attract plenty of free search-engine traffic to your web site. A look at the statistics for all SBI sites makes that plainly clear:
Among all SBI websites:
62% make it to the top 3%
of all websites on the internet.
53% are in the top 2%
35% make the top 1%
of ALL websites on the internet!
Try finding any other web-hosting or site-building company
that can come close to that kind of success!
Many ordinary people, with little or no knowledge of site building to begin with, have created profitable websites with SBI. Their websites include themes that include kids' birthday party ideas, juggling, travel, photography, vegan diets, tea tree oil, antique dolls — even asphalt! Meet them and hear their stories at SBI Case Histories.
