SBI Review
A Business Method We Believe In!
Here's Why You Can, Too!!

Our SBI Review is here to introduce readers to the fabulous method we've used to create our website. It's our story that intertwines with this great online business system!

We think it's the best out there!! And we'll tell you why...

Karen & Bill of their SBI website traveled to Sedona Arizona

SBI - Means Solo Build It
(Formerly Called Site Build It)

Once called Site Build It - because it's a system to build a website. But is that all? Absolutely not!!

But let me start at the beginning - Of why I love it! And so does my husband - but just a note, before I begin at the beginning:

This SBI review is written by me - Karen, though my husband agrees fully and supports me. But I'm the primary one who deals with the SBI system. He takes other background roles in our LLC business.

I've always had the entrepreneurial spirit - even as a kid! But I never really went there, and instead had various careers.

Then our kids became adults. And home computers were invented. That's when I started to think about having a business out of our home.

Karen was a Plant Lady

That would satisfy that spirit in me! Although I did a few things - I was even the "Plant Lady" for awhile!! Giving plant parties to sell potted plants, plus discussing some planting advice. (Oh my, I don't really even have a green thumb!)

Then one day I was searching the internet for possible home businesses. That's when I discovered SBI. Around 2002 or 2003. I saw their ad, read their SBI reviews.

It seemed quite good! Was it possible? The price seemed reasonable for all you got. What was really great, back then - you could download their manual to get started, to sample it first. My review of SBI seemed quite positive!

Loving a Beach Vacation

A little stick figure guy reviewed me on their step by step SBI method to create a website. Not only that - but one that could be successful. You start with an idea you love, an interest you're passionate about. That's what you base your website on! Then you won't lose interest - your passion for working on it.

Not only that! You also weave in interests of those out there searching for something on the internet. Where do the two intersect? 

Really?? I could find that out? 

I'd create a website about something I love! And choose that love because a lot of other people are loving it too!! That sounded like a plan!!

We loved taking vacations. Loved travel. Loved beach vacations. Loved going to the beach in California. So I started with a site about California beach vacations.

A woman with a frustrating health care career

My problem was I was still building my career. And it didn't leave me much time for working on my site. My fault - I didn't follow the plan. So when the year ended, I didn't renew. I didn't continue with that website. But I remembered the SBI potential. I was just too distracted at that time.

Time passed, my career in Respiratory Therapy, plus my educational advancement progressed well. It was time intensive, though! Not much free time to do the things we loved - like Lots Of Traveling. Or work on a travel website. But I never forgot about reviewing a future possibility with SBI.

Then down the road, some changes occurred. My husband Bill needed to retire. He was the right age. We began planning for it, to return "home" to Arizona, from California. I really thought of SBI then, and reviewed my memory of that system. But I still needed to work 1 or 2 more years.

Still, I went online and searched for SBI reviews. I found the SBI website again -

Solo Build It by

and much had been changed and updated since I last started with it. Except one thing: the price!

It was still such a bargain, I couldn't believe it -  Amazing!!

Yes! SBI can be ordered for such a price value!
A Mean Face: Site Built It Reviews that are so mean are fake - advice: just read it with critical thinking.

What's That Though??

I was a little disturbed with one SBI review, though. It went on and on about SBI being so bad, and the administrator who started it was so evil it seemed. This SBI review was so mean, I was really taken aback! I almost responded to this SBI reviewer - what was her problem? Why so mean? (More on this below!)

But I didn't bother. I'd used SBI before, and now reviewing their offer before me - I saw it had only way improved! They have a valuable 90 day Money-Back Guarantee. So no worries, if it wasn't the same or even better than I'd been thinking!

SBI Site will take you to Arizona which welcomes you to visit the Grand Canyon State

I began again, even though I still had a job. I carved out a little spare time for it. This time I chose Arizona travel as my theme. We love Arizona, and visiting all the variety of places in the state.

Now I followed the plan more closely. But, not quite exactly as I should have. But a lot more closely than before.

What I found was - it progressed. As I built my website - my business, my visitor traffic steadily grew. As long as I was working it and building, I saw some advancement. But I began to realize, I again didn't totally align with the plan. That made the road to success more difficult, and time intensive.

So finally - I, too was retiring! 

That's when I decided I needed to go back and review the SBI roots. Back to the beginning of the course of action, and start again. In December 2016 I began anew. A new site. Start with a passion again.

I centered my focus, Arizona was too broad. This time finally, I followed the plan!

The site related to where we retired: Tombstone Arizona! I'm on the final step of the SBI system now. As with any business - the system you follow, your business plan, is a continually ongoing process. But we do it for the love of it. After all, SBI is designed with that in mind. The final step IS your ongoing business plan!

And what's been happening is, there HAS been wonderful progress! Since getting started, and following the SBI plan. Our site is listed on Google, Bing and Yahoo!! There are more and more visits to our TombstoneTravelTips website all the time. Traffic like we hadn't seen before!! Steadily more and more each month. Every week we're getting more people subscribing to our newsletter - we're so thrilled!! 

I'm enjoying my retirement from the job I had! Yes, we're on the final step: well into working on Day 10!!! Working our business plan. Making more progress every day. Yes, that final, ongoing SBI step is regularly reviewed. As part of your business plan!

Our business is going so well, we've even begun another SBI website for another of our passions. Even though we're desert dwellers, as mentioned, we do love the beach - the coastal areas, island style, etc.! So we've begun a website devoted to lighthouses - called - take a look!

So How Does SBI Work?

It's a process you follow (not my initial bad examples, please!) -

The Solo Build It! Action Guide

Based on their CTPM principles:

  • Content - continually create authentic great content
  • Traffic - bring in targeted traffic wanting that content
  • PreSell - your visitors know you're an authentic person they can trust by the value of your site
  • Monetize - business area, where your visitors purchase offerings provided by you in a trusting manner

The SBI Action Guide takes you through 10 logical Chapters - called "Days" - each with sub-parts of action to accomplish.

  • Intro - Overview: in-depth explanation of the CTPM principle
  • Day 1 - Master the All-Important Basics: Building the foundation of your business
  • Day 2 - Develop Your Best Site Concept: Essential for your success
  • Day 3 - Brainstorm Profitable Topics: Your site blueprint
  • Day 4 - Investigate & Plan Monetization Options: Discover $$$
  • Day 5 - Refine Site Concept & Register Domain Name: Big decision!
  • Day 6 - Build a Site That Gets the Click: Construction instruction
  • Day 7 - Build Free Traffic From a Variety of Sources: Give life to the business
  • Day 8 - Develop Relationships: PreSelling needs
  • Day 9 - Know Your Visitors: Better profits via customer service
  • Day 10 - Monetize: Action plan begins & follows through

Each day is as long as you need it to be to accomplish the plan. Remember - this is NO get rich quick scheme. No such thing!!

It takes time, and work. Since the plan is designed with your interests in mind - you'll have fun putting in the time and work! The more time and work you put in - the faster you'll see results, though. But remember - (important!) follow the Action Guide!

Solo Build It!

But There are Free Website Builders!


I know you can use website builders other than SBI. Review them and you'll get varied opinions. Some are free, some are low-cost. Others are more costly.

Some are quite easy to use, some quite a bit more difficult to use. Definitely not user friendly!

I've used some of these. In fact, when I was a teacher, I often used free or very low-cost versions that came with domain names I purchased. I did that since I didn't need people to find the site on Google. I had automatic traffic: my students.

I posted assignments, inserted links to necessary information, provided email to use for contacting me, posted class rules, etc. I tended to go with one company most often. And although their website construction was somewhat easy to use, not as easy as SBI! And not as functional.

Plus if I'd wanted to be found by web searchers, it wasn't automatically done. There were more packages to purchase. Explanations weren't clear of what else to do. And more! Right!!

I've also used Word Press. I'm not sure why it seems to be so loved?? I think it's quite tedious. Maybe it's because I've only used the free version? But with all these plug-ins and various methods to do assorted things - I don't consider it user friendly at all.

For those who love Word Press, though - but desire better traffic for their site. And a great business system to support it throughout. Or for those who have Word Press, find it tedious (like me!), and don't want to ditch it for the work they've put into it. There's a solution to transfer to SBI! There is an SBI for Word Press - See the Info Here>

SBI Looks Out For Us

With free or low-cost, you build a website - Yes. Beautiful looking? Probably! But can you also build a successful business? If you build it, will they come? NO - likely they won't. Not for that initial no/little cost.

Right: does that company you're considering provide EVERYTHING you need for just one yearly, very reasonable fee? And I mean "Have Your Back" for all the background details you can't even anticipate? For instance, Google updates, international or U.S. laws affecting your site, ongoing free interactive Learning Challenges, etc., etc., etc.?

For example: when Google started wanting sites set up with HTTPS protocol (secure sites), SBI went to work for us automatically!  SBIers were given simple step by step instructions to convert our sites from HTTP to HTTPS. SBI handled it all seamlessly, for us, in the background, totally free of extra costs. We didn't need to pay for an SSL Security Certificate! SBI made our lives easier again!

In 2018 there was the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) rollout. Immediately SBI was on the ball. Determining it was needed compliance by ALL quality websites. SBI went to work.

SBI instructed us all, step by step, allowing SBIers to become fully compliant with GDPR regulations. Providing us a privacy-policy template with required wording for GDPR compliance, including details per individual sites' contingencies. Changes for contact forms, newsletter sign-up forms. All areas where visitors submit private information were automatically updated for GDPR compliance. 

SBI Forum leaders via our private forum helped us by sharing GDPR compliance needs from outside entities like Google Analytics, Google Adsense, Mailchimp, etc. 

So you can see: SBI has our backs. They do everything they can to let us SBIers focus on building our websites and businesses, without having to deal with these many complicated things occurring in the internet world. What a relief!!

Since they provide such absolutely stellar customer service - watching out for SBIers that way - SBI,  Site Build It! has my total confidence and true respect.

Imagine using a free/el-cheapo website for your business. With no help in dealing with the many regulatory and Internet issues and changes. They can be a nightmare for small businesses to deal with: the Google rules and algorithm changes, security and privacy issues like I just mentioned. What did you do, will you do, or have you done to become https and GDPR compliant? Etc. Etc. Did/would you have to pay a consultant to handle it? Or the website provider another fee?

But we at SBI had no worries - SBI had our backs that time, and all the time. 

I just can't help but say - SBI is the WHOLE PACKAGE! From start to finish, you're supplied with a user-friendly, business-building, website-building, fantastic system! I hope this SBI review is showing you what I mean.

Authentic Vs. Fake SBI Review

Beware of Fake online Reviews!

You can see we highly recommend SBI and their method for building an online business! We're giving our own review of SBI here, to help you evaluate it for yourself. Perhaps you're perusing around, searching for SBI reviews while considering an online business to pursue.

That's how I did it in the past. It's a good method. Take caution though, because fake reviews are out there!

Fake news has been a recent topic in the media. That's not a good thing, for sure! You want to be able to trust reports you see or hear. It's good to use critical thinking, and investigate, or research things you're told, read or see.

That's why I bring up fake reviews. Because I know there are Fake SBI reviews out there! Which amazes me!! In fact that one I read myself, mentioned above, I now realize was a fake review.

So I encourage you to do your own research! I encourage you to consider SBI, and cautiously look for authentic reviews. Use critical thinking, making sure they're authentic. Look for real Solo Build It Reviews - there are many, written by those who know SBI, use it and love it! Just like me!

Here's a favorite of mine - for one of our favorite places to visit:

Use critical thinking so you're not scammed by fake reviews. Search for authentic research.

When you do an internet search for reviews of Solo Build It, you'll find fake reviews. They're written by scammers who get paid to do that so they can sell you their product: A website that sells websites to sell a website!

A primary company promoting this method is "WA." Who is that? I shudder, really, to say their name! They call themselves Wealthy Affiliate. Affiliate being the key word. Because all they do is make money by selling you this same WA business. So it's not a real home business. And they do not make many "wealthy" for sure. They take advantage - those few who really do make money with this. I don’t know how WA affiliates can sleep at night.

They're in business to sell a "business" to you, that you in turn will sell to others, so they'll sell the same to others! That product only - a website to sell a website, to sell the same website - on which to earn commissions. Not only that - they aim to publish fake Solo Build It reviews to attempt to detract from what they feel is their competition!

So is SBI a competitive product that can be compared to WA? No! Because SBI is a real product, and WA is not. SBI is a business building system, to create a true-value real business, using a website methodology.

Personally, I can't see the value in this WA product! It's not a real business builder. Wealthy Affiliate is the actual fake business. It's like a shadow business. I don't believe it's an authentic method to build a successful online business.

These fake reviewers have their suspect methods of "fake-reviewing Solo Build It" - but one thing they never do, because they can't - is to compare success! Solo Build It always has tons of verifiable proof of successful sites of real people with home businesses via their websites.

Online fake reviews are a large problem. They mislead people, just to make money - to take hard-earned cash from consumers! If you search Google for "fake reviews" you'll see what a problem it is.

I've written this page to share my Solo Build It story, to review why I love it! It's also to let you in on this information, if you may consider beginning your own online business.

Awhile back...

  • I saw that vile Solo Build It review
  • and then found out it was a fake review
  • and even more-so discovered there was an aim, their goal to purposefully create Solo Build It fake reviews - because they want to lure people to purchasing WA instead

- I was upset! I was angry!

I wrote my own Solo Build It review to support this great system that works so well. It's a product that gives you so much - that we love to use for our online business!!

I felt disturbed that anyone with a legitimate desire to start a website business could be misled into buying this weak product promoted by fake reviews. A system where you have little chance of true success compared to Solo Build It.

Plus the ethics of the system, I feel, are questionable. I think they're willing to take your money selling you a fake dream. To me, they're selling you a scam-like system. I wouldn't trust them, and I hope you'll be cautious about trusting them also.

I'm building this website into a business with Solo Build It. We're becoming more and more successful each day. It's a real business builder. It doesn't only build a website, Solo Build It takes you through everything you need for your website business success. And I mean everything!!

Solo Build It takes care of everything, which allows us a clear path to focus on what we really know and love:
