Do want to build a website OR do you want to build a BUSINESS?

online business idea

Learn why I use the best online business builder in the world & it's perfect for Wordpress too

I believe you can benefit by taking a shortcut in your Business Startup learning curve, using this platform if you are new to the world of building your business online (even if you have an offline business too)

(Full disclosure there are affiliate links in this post, link policy here)

This does not affect you in any way and you don't pay any more if you do decide to purchase a particular product or service.

You can be sure though I will only be bringing you  the very best products I think will be of use to you on your small business ideas journey and to prove my point

I have a very special free training offer at the end of the page


If you are in a hurry to get to the offer, just click the link above and it will take you straight there.

My list of resources is going to be quite a small one  because the first I am going to share with you is so comprehensive.

I currently don't have to look outside it for any other business building information or tools.

And I make no apologies for explaining it here in such detail

It is brilliant for beginners, but just as useful for more experienced users.

If you want less words and prefer a video explanation, click here and it will jump you down the page.

I know not everyone likes to read or they are in a hurry and just want the facts.

If you are a WordPress user you are catered for to, click here and it will jump you down the page and you can get straight to it, but do come back and read the rest of the page because it applies to you too.

I believe it will be a game changer for you in your journey to

design your PERFECT business around

who you are & how you want to live your life


This is relevant to both online business building or if you want to have an offline one instead.

A web presence of some sort is a must even if you are only selling your product or service in your local area.

You may not think you need to reach a global audience but when you learn more about starting a small business you will no doubt see the benefit as time goes on.

The world has become a very small place since the dawn of the internet.

You may be cutting hair in Crewe but someone in China could be interested in buying your knowledge as a product or service when you post up your photographs or start teaching students in your salon or you video your work for YouTube

The length and breadth of the online world knows absolutely no bounds now


My Own Experience

Trust me when I say, I am was not tech savvy.

I knew nothing about building a web site, search engine optimisation, or the whole process of going online.

I approached it all with fear and trepidation and the perceived cost of starting and having to engage  a professional really had me in a bit of a state.

So, I did a bit of research, tried quite a lot stuff on my own that didn't cost any money like blogger, wix, weebly and  wordpress (the no cost version) but I soon realised, ridiculous as it may sound, 

there is a price to pay for free

And the price is time looking for all the information you need, and money needed when you realise you cannot necessarily actually do it yourself. 

I did even have a go with Typepad for a while,  which I liked for ease of use, and it came with a bit of a varying technical help-desk because you had a varying cost model but no business building advice.

To cut a long story very short, after a lot of trial and error, I came across the product I am using now.

It is a full online business building package and I could build it all myself, so that really kept the cost of start up right down.

And when I say a full business package, I mean a complete suite of tools & processes business education webinars & forum help all included (Click for a full list)

There is so much in it I don't have the room to write about it all, but if you click the link you will see the whole shebang.

But, please don't take my word for it.

I absolutely insist you to go and have try to get going online with one of the free programmes like blogger or the no cost version of WordPress and see how you get on.

There is no substitute at all for hands on experience.

The problem is...

 You probably don't know what you don't know, so how do you know if what you are are doing is right?

I know because I have tried them all thinking I was saving money and being savvy.

I wasn't!

I got a bit fed up in the end with people spouting, now just build a website in 20 minutes, its free to start with, because it wasn't working for me and I felt abject failure.

In fact, to be honest, I feel angry because I wasted so much valuable time I will never, ever get back!

The problem with free is there is no value to it and there are no lessons provided with it

FALSE ECONOMY!

All the well known names above, absolutely,  can help you produce a website in some form, shape or fashion but, as a few examples, there are:

  • No really decent support functions, no forums to ask questions with real people answering quickly.
  • No decent guide to what steps you should be taking and it what order.
  • No anything useful really to shortcut your training if you are a beginner.
  • Pretty much you have to trawl the web to find out every piece of information or pay someone who knows more than you.
  • Very little is mentioned about security and how to protect your business from hackers looking to exploit weaknesses.
  • No one explains in details how to track your visitors or how to find out who is visiting your website.

In fact, no business building education at all!

So...

Wouldn't it be better to be able to do it yourself if you want to under one umbrella, particularly as funds are often short in the early stages of creating your own business?


My Personal Choice 

The programme I am using, offers you a 10 day process to follow with logical steps and a bible to follow or Action Guide as it is known.

Your How To Build A Business Manual

You go from zero to hero in 10 steps, without having to go anywhere else on the web for your information, and the forum help offered is absolutely world class.

And you may be surprised to learn you never pick your domain name until step 5, and the reasons are obvious once you start on your journey.

Social media training included, marketing advice, webinars, hosting, domain name and an awful lot more.

One of the most fun parts is the brainstormer tool to help you find your best business idea and your best  positioning  in your industry.

You find out just exactly what it is people are looking for and in detail, not what you think they are looking for online and with a broad brush.

You are not just building a website you are actually building a business here.

A crucial point to remember in the land of low cost/no cost!

All for the bargain price of about £25.00/$20.00  per month or less if you pay in one go, or close to that in your own currency. 

So, if you think you might be interested, have a look here.

You get 90 days to trial it for free to see if you like it, if not just say so, and you don't have to pay anything at all.

Nowhere else on the internet offers a business building system system like this with this level of extensive help on tap 24/7. 


But I Prefer Wordpress! I hear you say...

No problem, I get it, a lot of people love it.

Well the good news is you can use SBI with Wordpress

WordPress lovers can get it even cheaper here, you  purchase the widget to drop in your current site or the one you will start and away you go.

You get all the bells and whistles included so in less than 90 days you could be up and  running your own successful online business.

Go on, give it a trial run, you have go nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Personally, I don't use Wordpress right now but I can speak from experience so  I am not just saying it for effect:

  1. I have tried it and the learning curve was too steep
  2. I had to look around for help, it wasn't on tap and I had no idea who was good or not or if I was paying too much?
  3. The low cost was appealing but then I had to start paying for other add-ons as I went which added up quite a bit
  4. I didn't really know what I was doing not did I really know what steps to take one after the other
  5. I didn't know what I didn't know so I couldn't be sure I was going in the right direction

So much more to it than just putting up a website in 20 minutes, believe me...


But you don't have to believe me!

Here are 52 other people who want to share their experiences, have a look at what they achieved.

Click on the links to their sites and see what a diverse, cross section of small business ideas they have come up in pursuit of a new career for themselves.

If you have a small business idea, no matter how crazy you think it might be, you can start...


But I Have A Web Designer Already?

No problem, you can give this programme to the person who designs your websites and they can upload their own HTML.

Which means they can build your site from scratch if they so choose and you can still use Wordpress if you prefer.

So that issue is covered.


I  Am Not Sure It will Suit My Learning Style?

No problem, you can learn how to build your business using the action guide as document you can read, you can learn using the video version of it and there is also an audio version so you can learn, how you want, when you want using any method you want.

How does that sound? All bases covered there I think!


Prefer A Visual Explanation To Words?

Here is the one minute explainer video, great if you are in a hurry

If you have a little more time to spare you can watch the full 30 minute video tour, that covers the whole process in depth about building your business and why you build more than a just website.

A fundamental point and absolutely worth your time to explore.


Want To Look Inside The Product?

You can have a look at the heart of the Brainstorming Tool.

This video shows you how you can choose your topic/niche/business idea and investigate if there is demand for it, what competition you will be facing, and if you are likely to be successful on the search engines with it.

The test topic chosen is Social Media but you would use your own topic keywords, say Cake Decorating or Small Business Marketing or whatever your business is going to be about.

You can then, work through the process testing and refining until you come up with a complete blue print for your topic.

But at least you will begin your business knowing what to write about on your website because you know what everyone is searching for rather than guessing.

You won't get that if you use other proprietary platforms because that is just what they are.. just a platform.

This is why SBI is called a business builder.


Now About That Special Offer I Mentioned

As I said in the beginning, I won't recommend anything if I really don't believe in it, because I don't like falsehood, I have been subject to it myself online and I really hate it when people are not being true.

I am prepared to offer you a 1.5 hour coaching session session at no charge around your business idea if you purchase a subscription to SBI through my affiliate link.

I want you to be happy with your choice of business idea before you go ahead with Step 1 of the Action Guide so you don't waste precious time and you feel more confident  during the brainstorming process .
