Is ‘ Site Build It ‘ a Good Program for You Newbies to start a Blog or Website ??

You know I have always stuck by my assertions that anyone can start blogging and make it a go with a total outlay of of starting with less than $15 a month.

Not bad for having your own business and it has been a proven system that with time and patience it is a great way to learn how to make money on the internet.

Do You Need ‘Site Build it’ When You Start Out

Now, I have heard about ‘Site Build it’ for quite some years now. I have heard of a few positive reviews but most have been negative reviews and very dissatisfied customers.

One of the reasons that really turns me off about ‘Site Build it’ is that you pay $30 per domain a month to have your own website (hosting with them) and all the tools and expertise from SBI. That is $30 per domain. You add another domain it is like $60 a month and so on and so on.

Why would any one in their right mind participate in this ??

Also, I have read many reviews that SBI positions itself to compete with WordPress as a blogging platform. Which I highly doubt that they can compare to.

Especially when considering SBI does not even have a simple ‘auto save’ which should be a standard ‘no brain’ function for a blogging platform. So if you have a power surge your whole Post you worked diligently on is wiped away and irretrievable !

That would suck, huh ?? 🙁

Personally, from my view point I find SBI big waste of money that could be used in other areas that could benefit your Internet Marketing. If you want to learn how to make money on the internet then do not rely on this Company !

For instance, everything I learned about Internet Marketing and Blogging was at Warriorforum.com and a couple of other forums ! What I have been privy to there and my own experiences in my actual blogging were free and cost me just some time.

I chose to build this Blog to share my knowledge and experience from my own blogging in the last 6 years.
Of course, the information is free here ,and I would not have it any other way because I got the same thing from other free forums and blogs when I first started out.

Hence, I choose to pay it forward :>)

Take some time to go over to Warrior forum to get a good foundation of how to be successful at IM. You do not need to pay any $30 a month per domain to get started in this business.

You can go to a number of hosting companies and pay a flat $10 a month and have unlimited domains and Sites. A domain you can find as cheap as $7 a year too.

So this price notion with ‘Site Build It’ is ludicrous.

At SBI , they tout that it is a good starting place for newbies on how to make money on the internet with all their tools. Many (if not all) of their tools are free on the internet and some are outdated at that.

So summing it up, I just thought I would bring these points up to anyone here at my blog thinking about joining SBI……….Just do your self a service and walk away !! 😉

Shoot, I will take anyone of you by the hand and walk you through the necessities in getting started in blogging and Internet Marketing if that what it takes for you to stay away from this company.

Peace out,
Robert

WARNING : If You Start to Try Making Money Blogging Please Do Not Use Google’s Free Blogging Platform !

Plainly said this is a HUGE mistake many of you beginners will make when trying to start your Blogging business.

I know I made this mistake when I first started to try making money blogging. I got away with it for a little while with a few of my sites but a few months ago I got shot down by Google.

Let me Explain My Sad Story with using Blogger Blog

When I first started Blogging in early 2008 every one I met at the time said I should use the free blogging platform at Google a.k.a Blogger or Blogspot.

That was cool.

But then others that I got to know said I should take it one step further and make sure to buy my own Domain at Google. So it would be my property instead of Google’s ( so when you start out with Blogger blog you get a free domain that say www.newbiesblog.blogspot.com.)

If you decide to go with Blogger at the beginning you must at least take $10 and own your own domain; minimum. Do this or suffer later.

But thru the last 5 years of my experience I STRONGLY recommend that you guys out there starting out with blogging take it even one step further and go ahead and move in a direction away from Google’s free Blogger platform and go to paid hosting and start blogging on the WordPress platform..

After much egging on by fellow bloggers, I started to make the transition from Blogger to Hostgator/Wordpress back in 2010.

At first I was intimidated on how to do this but I easily did it with some info. I found by doing some ‘Googling’.

Now I love WordPress, and it is the only platform to go with if you want to really be serious in making money blogging !

However, out of the 18 blogs I own I still kept about 5 at Blogger Blog because I liked the certain templates for those sites. Particularly my second highest earning blog to date .

It had a 16.9% CTR with Adsense over 4 years which is virtually unheard with other bloggers or website owners who run Adsnese. The template was just perfect, and it was a very reliably source of income. Month in and month out.

Well guess what the heck happened 3 months ago ??

Let me start out with the chain of events.

So one day I write a nice, new post for this 16.9% CTR Adsense blog and published it.

Two days later I decided I wanted to make some revisions to the Post so I went to log into my Administration panel and the dashboard. I made the changes but when I went in entered domain to look at the new edits the URL came up as an ‘404 error and the Servers no longer find or host this Url ‘ . Something to that extent.

So I said well that’s cool. I will try it again and it will come up. But sure enough time after time this message kept coming up.

So I decided to reboot my computer and figured that would do the trick. But my Url/domain could and would not ever come up again.

After over 5 years of this domain /blog being run successfully on Google’s free Blogger platform they completely shut down my Blog and domain. With any warning or any reason whatsoever ! All of the sudden, POOF, my Site is history 🙁
And making money blogging with this site was literally impossible !

I tried contacting Google and sending a reconsideration letter (this is a form you can fill out in your Webmasters tool to write to Google if your Site has been de-indexed and would like to know why and try to plead your case to be put back in the rankings to where you once were.) and waited for weeks to no avail.

I was crushed !

Luckily, I was smart enough to have bought my own domain. And I was able to export all my 200+ Posts (95% original might I add) over to Hostgator and WordPress.

But all my SEO and Google Rankings are gone. Its like this Site NEVER existed, and I am having to start over from scratch.

It is a bummer but I did manage to get over it and move on 😉

Iam starting over with this Blog and maybe in a couple of years and I will be making money blogging with it like I did in its old glory days of 2008-2012.

But this is a prime example why you should use paid hosting if you want to start blogging. It is just not worth the chance when you choose a free hosting platform like blogger. Your material and domain can be taken down anytime without warning.

So just beware of that folks !

Making Money Online as an Internet Researcher ?? You Say B@llSh!t ….. I Say You are Dead Wrong !! ;)

Hey guys,
Hope you are having a good one. Things are going good here. Pretty hot down here in Texas but at least we are getting the kids out to the pool 3 or 4 times a week before it closes for the season.

I know I focus a lot about blogging and how to blog and make money doing it on my site here. But of course this blog is also about making money online with all kinds of other work at home opportunities.

All you need is a computer and a little patience 😉

So today I am talking about a little work at home business you can do from home. I talked about it on my other blog last year.
I thought it was worth talking about it again because I believe it can put some money in y’alls pockets if you want to put a little work into it.

It is quite legit and a great way in making money online !

Internet Researcher

Now folks do not get your underwear in a wad as I said last year an Internet Researcher is not like being a scientist or does not take any kind of training or degree. It really sounds more complicated than it is.

There is some great potential and personally I think it is a brilliant way to start making money online in a timely fashion.

Here is the low down guys :
There are a number of types of companies that will pay you money to gather up information that will help them with their own business and with saving time and money and ultimately help their bottom line profits. Information you can research on the internet which really does not take a brain surgeon to do lol

Now the kind of companies we are talking about really vary. They include Law firms, Political Action Committees. Car and Health Insurance companies, all kinds of Marketing Firms….and this is just to name a few.

I imagine many of you are asking how much can you make doing Internet Research for a company ?? Well, starting out you can expect around $11 to $12 an hour. Now as times goes by with experience this will increase. Just like most other jobs.

But there are some Internet Researchers who are Making Money Online in the neighborhood of more than $70 an hour.

Not too shabby.

And you can get paid thru Paypal and as you get some good experience you can even charge an upfront retainer’s fee. Also, you will be able to choose projects based on hourly or project completion.

Next, you might ask about the particular hours you have to work ?

This just varies according to your particular client. There will be some companies that will want a complete job done by a certain deadline. And you will find some that will want you to work 8 hours a day to finish a job.

I know a few of you may say that working 8 hours a day is just like working the regular rat race. I counter by saying I personally would rather have the flexibility of working that 8 hours from home and making money online than having a obnoxious boss looking over my shoulder every 15 minutes.

Thanks, but no thanks !!

Also you will have to follow the guidelines of what your client needs and how you present the information you gathered to them.. Knowing PDF, Excel, Power Point presentations etc. may be required…. these can easily be learned on your own by utilizing the Web and Google.

Btw, There are Internet Research Services that will help you find the jobs that will hire you. They will do all the work to find them too.

Other ways to find some jobs are to do some cold calling on the phone to places like Law firms and Insurance companies.

Having a Website or blog is always advantageous to show of your skills and abilities. So definitely consider that. A free ,good blog platform is Blogger blog.

Finally, to help grow your business join the National Association of Internet Researchers. I think you will find that helpful !

I made a list of some tools used by the best top Internet Researchers
1.Zotero and Wired-Marker (Firefox add-ons)
2.iCyte
3.Similar Web
4.Concierge (Safari plug-in)
5.EagleFiler and Selenium (Mac OS X)
6.SpringNote
7.Google Notebook

Guys, I think this is a really cool business. It takes very little start up cost. Probably none at all. People looking for work at home opportunities and ways in making money online definitely may want to consider something like this which could really turn into a very nice money maker !!

Cheers,
Robert
