One Website Can Change Your Life
Today is your lucky day. You just stumbled upon a site authored by someone who earns a full-time living from her computer thanks to her websites.
I know it may sound too good to be true, but by the end of this you will understand more about how it all works.
Before you continue, however, I want you to know this. There is no such thing as getting rich quickly online and if you want to succeed like me you have to be ready to work and learn.
If it was easy and guaranteed money, everyone would be doing it, right? Unfortunately too many people are looking to get rich quickly so they give up too early.
If you are in desperate need of money NOW, this is probably not going to be the thing for you. But if you are ready to embark on a journey filled with learning and fun, and can accept it may take some time... you are in the right place.
How I Earn a Living
I am an affiliate marketer. That just means I build websites on topics that interest me (like this one). I teach people what I know, learn how to drive traffic to my site and earn commissions by referring products from my site.
I also make money through sponsor ads and displaying Google ads on my website.
Notice there is nothing fancy about this site. I didn't have to try to compete with Facebook or Twitter and become the next social media giant just to make good money online.
You can actually create something as simple as a content website. It amazes me how many people think they have to be the next Amazon.com just to make money with a website.
Testing, Testing 1..2..3
To be honest, this website was just a test. I had been an affiliate of SiteSell (the host for this website) since 1999 but did not own their site-building product called Site Build It!.
In fact, I started to feel a little phony promoting it because I didn't really know how it worked or IF it worked. I had all these advertisements for the product on another site yet I had no idea if it was any good.
So in 2005, I bought Site Build It! and created this site. And to make a long story short, this site was earning a healthy 4-figures per month by its 2nd year.
All of the income comes from ads and affiliate programs/recommendations. I don't sell a single product directly from this site. No order-taking. No shipping. No customer service. All I do is collect my commissions every month.
Why Site Build It! and Not Some Cheap Host?
Unlike the other web hosts that just give you the space for your site and a "good luck", Site Build It! actually gives you a training guide (with video) that shows you how to build your website, drive traffic, make money with Google, affiliate marketing, etc.
You aren't left alone when it comes to building and marketing your site. Not only do you receive the Video Action Guide but you also get a site builder, mailing list manager (to collect and send e-mails), help with driving traffic and access to a member forum.
The member forum is amazing. It is flooded with other SBI! owners who are ready and willing to give you advice and help with building and marketing your site.
How Much Can I Make? How Long Will It Take?
I cannot and will not tell you how long it will take you to make money online. The reason is simple. I don't know. Everyone is different and it depends on how quickly you learn how to effectively market your site online.
If you follow the SBI! Action Guide and work hard, you will have a greater chance of succeeding than someone who just breezes through the tutorials and doesn't put a lot of work into their website.
If there's one thing I want you to get from this article, it's the idea that this is real work. However, if you enjoy this as much as I do, the rewards are unlimited. I am my own boss and I cannot imagine having another "job".
I'm Not The Only Success Story
I know what you're thinking. You're wondering if anyone else is doing this well with Site Build It!. I know you are! :)
Well I'm happy to tell you that I am not alone. Check out Andrew Ghigo's case study. He's another SBI! customer, and he graciously allowed me to feature his story on this site.
And if that's not enough, read the other case studies from other successful Site Build It! owners.
