page first, or take a look around my entire site, then come right back to learn about "how I built my site".
If you already read my "About Me" page then welcome back and I am glad you want to learn about "how I built this site". I'll be more than happy to tell you about it!
My Site is Also My Home Based Business
You know, when we first started Nick on is gluten free diet, the first thing that became apparant to us immediately was the high price of gluten free food!
When you are paying $4 for a loaf of gluten free bread, $3 for a box of rice pasta and so on....we wanted to find ways to defray the high cost of a gluten free diet. As I was learning how to build a website, one of the benefits I learned about was that you could actually monetize a website and start earning money.
Where Did I Begin?
As I discussed on my "About Me" page, my first motivation to build this site was to bring more awareness to celiac disease and tell my son's story of how he successfully overcame his complications from CD.
However, I never built a website and the only internet experience I had was just how to surf the net and check email. Website building was very foreign to me. So I really wanted to find a tutorial and online teaching tool that could help me.
Also I wanted to avoid many of the "Get Rich Quick" scams that are out there across the internet. I was saavy enough to realize that if it seems too good to be true than it probably is too good to be true! I also didn't want to spend an enormous amount of money to build a website. I really wanted something easy to learn and affordable!
I searched all types of products, videos etc.. Finally I came across a product called Site Build It from Site Sell. SBI offered everything I needed to build a website about celiac disease. It offers a thorough step by step training guide using videos. The best part is it costs under $300 a year! Many website hosts charge thousands of $'s, not SBI....it's affordable!
Here are just a few of the great benefits of SBI:
*SBI! makes online business success do-able. Anyone can succeed with an all-in-one process, tools, and guidance.
* The process is simplified to such a degree that success (i.e., profits, not the mere presence of a Web site) is achievable even for a beginner. For an experienced person, achieving success is even smoother. SBI! really does change lives.
* Yes, there are easier ways to build a Web site. However, online profits require more than just having a collection of Web pages. SBI! includes all the tools and a proven process required to build a long-term, profitable e-business.
* SBI! removes the technical barriers allowing you to keep your attention on building your business. Many functions are completely automated. You don't need to know anything upfront about building a Web site in order to succeed. The tedious, "under-the-hood" stuff is handled automatically so you can focus on other important business-building activities.
* SBI! comes with unlimited Customer Support. SBI! owners often call it the best they've ever experienced. And the SBI! Forums complete the picture. They are the most friendly, help-and-be-helped set of e-business forums in the world.
* When it's time to create your site's Look & Feel, SBI! provides fully customizable, easy-to-use templates. You can choose and create a professional-looking presentation, even if you have no design skills. And if you're a designer, you can create and upload your own. This page shows a range of styles.
* SBI! includes domain name analysis, optimization, and registration. You will develop the best name for maximum profitability in your niche. (It's often different than what you had planned.)
* Fast, reliable, state-of-the-Net Web site hosting is all included with SBI!. You don't have to worry about choosing the right "hosting" features (size, capacity, etc.). Web hosting is included, no nonsense, no hidden clauses.

So how's my site doing? Am I making money?
I started the site about a year ago and I have had over 12 months in a row of increase website traffic/visitors coming to my site. Building a profitable site requires traffic. However, traffic just doesn't show up...you need to build webpages that are rich in "content" and "presell" your visitors, and then the visitors show up.
As you increase traffic, profits begin to increase. My site now has over 500 "unique" visitors each day or more than 15,000 unique visitors each month. Not bad for a small home based site that just wants to spread the word about celiac disease.
SBI helps you build your site and shows you exactly how to monetize it to start bringing in the cash. As I said I was not looking into this to get rich quick scheme, however, my profits have now grown to the point that this supplements my income from my day job nicely. You can make as much money as you want. The more time you put into your site, the more you will earn. I only spend a few hours a week right now and I am turning a decent profit.
Do I enjoy doing this?
Absolutely! I love SBI!! I am passionate about talking about celiac disease, gluten free diets, GF food etc.. Most of all I feel good about helping newly diagnosed people with CD or others that just want to learn more about living a gluten free diet.
What are you passionate about? Do you want to help others with some expertise that you have on a topic? Do you want to have your own home based business that you can take your time creating and enjoy doing it? If so then I strongly recommend you visit SBI website and learn more about it.
SBI's overall formula for success and their business philosophy!
Too many non-SBI! sites start without profits being "built into" the process from DAY 1. It all begins with the right process. Content Traffic PREsell Monetize is the underlying, logical and powerful process that capitalizes upon the fundamental realities of how people use the Web. C T P M puts you on a solid, profitable business foundation.
PREselling is a concept "invented" by SiteSell, part of the C T P M process. The concept is simple. As small business people, you do not have a brand name that is known and trusted. So you have to build that before you can monetize. Seems obvious, right? So few people do it, or they don't do it right, online.
I watched several promotional items once I was on their site before I purchased the product. What ultimately sold me was how they explained the overall business concept of C-P-T-M and the concept of Preselling:
These concepts are easily explained and make perfect sense for building a successful website that brings in traffic.
So now you know a little more about me and why and how I built this site. I hope you find my site useful and helpful. For those of you who want to try SBI for yourself to turn your knowledge/passion/expertise into your own home based business, then by all means give SBI a try and Order SBI! today!
Also one thing I forgot to mention, SBI! has a no-risk, 30-day money back guarantee. It's a risk-free decision that you can make with confidence and peace of mind.
