From comic book kid to rocket scientist to comic book business web builder extraordinaire. How was I able to create a comic book business that others find fascinating? I have been in the self employment mind set for many years now. Being without a corporate day job for a time, forced me to look at other avenues of income development.
Starting in the multilevel marketing (MLM) world was quite an eye opening experience. Enough so that it made me realize that business model just wasn’t for me, and personally I don’t think it is for many others either. Then my girl friend and I delved into the exciting world of vending machines. We worked this concept for several years, before burning out, shall we say. Hey you interested in some vending machines? Sell um to you cheap (ha ha). I did create an ebook on vending though, that I sell on the Net. That as they say, is another story.
After a few years went by, I did manage to snag a job back at the rocket factory from whence I came. I was in rocket heaven for a few years. But as the company started changing ownership, rocket design started losing its fascination and mystique. So I stumbled across several Internet business income models that piqued my curiosity. Among my trials and tribulations of learning what worked and what didn’t in the Internet Marketing (IM) world I found Site Build It (SBI). And I also decided to strike out on my own again and turned in my rocket building papers. At this time I didn't know that a comic book business was surely on my horizon!
I started working 2 or 3 potential concepts (I created a vending machine business site and product for one). I came across a mentoring program that was too hard to pass up. I had been on the Net for a couple of years. Had even been reading up on SBI and its concepts. And this mentoring program used SBI as its site building platform. Hey boy, I was on my way.
After my initial niche research I settled on the concept of a comic book business. Comic books was a world I was enamored with as a kid. It was time to rekindle my comic book roots. And the rest, as they say, is history. I have poured my heart and soul into my comic book business. And using the tools and methodology provided by SBI, I have a business assess that I am proud of and will last the rest of my life. Or the rest of the Internet life, whichever comes first (ha ha).
Now as an added attraction here is just a smattering of other successful SBI users and some snippets of what they have to say:
"Tamar and I did lots and lots of research on kid birthday parties and started experimenting with our ideas on kids and during parties whenever the opportunity arose. We wrote up lots of content for the site and I was in charge of strategy and building the site from a technical aspect (although, with Site Build It!, you really don't need any technical knowledge because you can build a site through simple building blocks and monitor every aspect of traffic through a consolidated control center.). In no time, both of us became kid birthday junkies."
~ Elad Shippony
"My income continues to grow along with my passion for this business I'm building. Some recent additions to SBI!s functionality have made it possible for me to take the business in exciting new directions."
~ Michelle Schill
"To all potential SBI users: If you are considering SBI! and the SiteSell process as the method to build your own business, I can only say that it is the best value we have ever found. Anywhere!"
~ Jerry Mack
"Site Build It! changed my life. I know this sounds like a "cliche", even corny to some, but it is perfectly true. I now devote all my time at being happy and productive, with my wife, close by my side, making her own dreams come true. As we sail in the sunset ... it keeps receding, while remaining just as breathtaking. I am 61 years young, and having the time of my life!"
~ Claude Jollet
This is only a taste of what many of the successful SBI users are saying. But I don’t want this page to be mainly others’ thoughts. I, as yet, have more useful content to provide to you as a comic book business owner. Onward and upward!!
Seems like everyone and their dog (yes, even their dog) are building websites these days. But then I may be too close to the forest with my comic book business, because all I see are trees. There are many ways to build a site and get it on the Net. Depending on your level of experience, there are differing levels of technique and instruction.
I have tried several. And quite frankly for overall all completeness and ease, I have found SBI to be, hands down, the best. It is best as a beginner and best as an experienced site builder. Now the Net is full of web builders and would be entrepreneurs. Problem is most propeller heads (technical junkies) love to build a site with all them thar bells and whistles, but don’t know a thing about marketing. And then there are beginning and more experienced marketers that don’t have a clue as to the mechanics of site building that brings traffic and income.
A Site Build It hosting service comes with full knowledge of building a web business and not just building a web site. You would be surprised at how many people don’t understand this concept, but THINK they do!
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.
You get more than just a "site builder." You don't need to worry about looking for separate hosting, paying for a separate keyword research tool, handling site submissions, integrating autoresponders, etc., etc. See the full list of features here.
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.
Brainstorm It! is SBI!'s powerful keyword brainstorming and research tool. It helps you verify that your site concept has acceptable profit potential. SBIers are saved from making that common fatal error. With Brainstorm It!'s help, they know they are on track, right from the start. Brainstorm It! also helps you to find topics related to your niche that will pull in traffic and generate income.
Page creation is as simple as riding a bike with its training wheels still attached. No need to know HTML. The block-by-block builder trains you how to write a page that is both "Search Engine and human effective." It's simple, do-able and most importantly, effective site-building. The block-by-block builder is perfect for beginners, but even many "advanced" users should start with this tool. It's an excellent way to break bad habits!
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.
The various HQs ("Traffic," "Tips 'n Techniques," "Resources," "Monetization" and several others) keep you on the cutting edge of all that you need to know. No other "outside reading" is necessary (except for info related to your own business, of course). There are membership sites that charge hundreds (even thousands) of dollars for this type of invaluable information.
New tools are added continuously so you can feel secure that you'll always have the most up-to-date site-building and marketing tools.
And (almost forgot to mention this), there is the price tag on SBI. First I must make note that if you want to build a web site,you HAVE to host it SOMEWHERE! And the cost of hosting can really run the gambit. You have free hosting services, which you should stay away from if you want your OWN business and not help build someone else's. And you can pay several hundred dollars per month for services that, quite frankly, give you what you don't need and don't give you all that SBI does.
For my comic book business, I pay $299 per year, which breaks down to $25 per month. Not a bad deal for the all-in-one inclusive business building package SBI delivers. The price has not gone up in all the years I have been web site building. Recently though, Ken Evoy (owner of SBI) has made a monthly payment option of $29.95 available. I prefer the yearly charge, but hey, that is up to you.
I could go on and on about SBI and my comic book business, but this page would get too long beyond reason. I would like to leave you with this video though. It will be worthwhile to watch, I assure you.
Well, hopefully you have gotten a gist as to why I am sold on SBI for building my comic book business. Check out some of the links on this page, read up a little more on Solo Build It, the method I use to build my comic book business, and make your own decision. If you are looking to turn your comic book passion, or any other passion for that matter, into a web business you have come to the right place.
