More and more small service-providers are considering the need for a website. And these days, many providers from the phone company to your neighbor's nephew offer to build you one cheaply. The problem with that is you wind up with a cheap website.
I'm not talking about how it looks. That can be easily repaired.
I mean those sites are often cheaply thought out. You want traffic to your site? For that you need a sound marketing foundation. You need to know what Internet users are really looking for. And ways to provide it. You need a plan that works.

If you've toured the rest of my you may have noticed that I don't link to a lot of products and services. Site Build It! is one of the exceptions, because it's of interest to some of my own clients and associates.
I know, as a copywriter and creative consultant, that if you want to
draw customers, a website should be more than a mere "web presence."
Site Build It! gets you past that stage, in record time, at minimal
Look at Site Build It! now.
The name "Site Build It!" is actually a misnomer, because, although
it builds a respectable website for you pretty much by point-and-click
it also builds a business. It does the marketing
research drudge work for you, too. And the really
valuable thing about it is that it guides you in setting up the
foundation for a site that is virtually guaranteed to draw significant
traffic from search engine users. (In fact, its publisher gives you
a Satisfaction Guarantee.)
Site Build It! does all this...
It's a whole bunch of great packages in one. Yes, you still have to
do some serious thinking and planning (why would you not want to?).
But Site Build It! guides you every step of the way, so you're
sure to cover all the bases, thoroughly and professionally. In fact,
it requires a significant investment of your time. But, instead of spending
that time learning complex HTML skills, or learning to use an HTML editing
program, you'll be spending the time on identifying a lucrative niche,
on your site's content (very important) and on other traffic
and loyalty-building projects, such as writing an e-newsletter (SBI!
processes sign-ups and emails it automatically). What SBI! does

I know the company, SiteSell.com.
Its principal, Ken Evoy, has one of the best reputations on the Internet
for integrity and for offering real value. After years of building that
reputation in other online ventures, he's turned this product into an
even more special labor of love.
Which raises a couple of other important points...
Although you won't have to learn HTML in order to make SBI!
work for you, you can use HTML if you want. (So if you have a special
look, you can keep it). There are many ways to "customize" the results,
some authorized, some not. But that negates a key advantage... if you
don't want to spend time learning all about HTML and FTP transfers,
etc., it makes even less sense learning how to customize SBI. (I'm a
Certified Webmaster for Site Build It!, so I can help with that
if necessary. But I recommend first using it "straight out of the box."
That way, you'll focus on the strategic aspects of content and traffic-building,
making the key business decisions only you can make. Then if you still
want to tweak the site, you'll know what's really important.)
Although you may be tempted to save time by skipping parts
of the manual the "Action Guide" please don't. SBI! is
a traffic-building, business-building concept, and success at those
goals depends very much on building a sound foundation. If you take
things in the proper order, and don't skip steps, SBI! is specifically
designed to maximize your chance of success.
