Why Build a Website? How My Interests Became an Income
This page is about why I chose to build a website.
For me, the reason I chose to build a website began with a desire to produce relaxation materials, and make them available to a wide audience. I think relaxation is a valuable tool that can help improve quality of life. I enjoy recording relaxation audio and writing relaxation scripts, and this website is a good way to allow as many people as possible to access these resources. Why this website? For me, it is a way to connect what I enjoy with people who can find it useful.
I use Site Build It!, also called SBI!, to build my site. SBI! Allowed me to build a quality website by writing about what I am interested in. My passion for mental health, combined with my knowledge about relaxation, provided a foundation of information and resources I could offer. SBI! enabled me to turn this into a website with steadily growing traffic. I had no prior knowledge of website building, and did not know where to start, but SBI! provided a clear, simple, step-by-step guide.
The SBI! Action Guide showed me how to develop and build a website - all the way from finding a niche with good profit potential, to designing pages, to brainstorming topics, to setting up a newsletter... all of the steps were clearly laid out in a way that I could follow in my spare time. SBI! provided more than just a "site builder." I didn't need to worry about looking for separate hosting, paying for a separate keyword research tool, handling site submissions, integrating autoresponders, etc., etc.
I began my site in May 2008. Since beginning my website I have worked full time (even having more than one day job at the same time), and still, in my spare time, was able to create a website.
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. 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.
I have found building a website to be enjoyable and rewarding, and am pleased that my hobby is now a steady source of income. I recommend SBI! to anyone who would like to make money from a hobby.
