Website design and Site Build It

Postby Greg Felty on Wed Jun 24, 2009 6:50 am

I noticed just a few older posts regarding Site Build It. I'm gearing up to create a website(or two) and am interested in some feedback on Site Build It versus the other options(like using FrontPage to create a site and capture pages, etc). I am a "newbie" when it comes to website design. And I'm trying to determine what will be best in terms of quality, ease of use and future flexibility. I know....can't have it all, right? Or can I? ;)

Thanks for any suggestions.

What are you looking to build specifically: A blog, a lead capture page, or a web site?

For capture pages, personal blogs or even full sites I would highly recommend Wordpress.

Everything you need; flexibility, ease of use and quality is unmatched by Wordpress. Blogger.com is also a great place to start. I would recommend checking out either http://wordpress.com or http://blogger.com.

As you learn the ropes and want more flexibility, customization and professionalism I would check out http://wordpress.org as this is more for the marketer who wants an entirely customizable site.

Agree with all of the above but just thought I'd mention one other program that is simple to use yet very powerful too. Xsitepro. I use it a lot for landing pages and squeeze pages. It works really well and makes it simple to upload to your web server. It's also not very expensive compared to Site Builder.

Good Luck

I am currently in the process of building a site with SBI!. I am very impressed with them, but I have nothing to compare it to either. I do agree, they are pricey, but I firmly believe you get what you pay for, and being a newbie, I have absolutely no clue as to what I am doing. I am building a business for the long term, and not for it to die a slow death within a year, SBI! gives you the tools and training to have your business become successful, if you are serious about it. They also offer the 5 pillar affiliate program too.

of course, these are my affiliate links, feel free to click and browse! :mrgreen:

In all honesty I would say forget SB, save your money and grab a Blogger.com account. This is where I started. It is completely free and completely friendly to the newbie. Save the money, sure you are saying you are in for the long haul but Blogger.com will more than suit your needs for pretty much anything you want to make online. Plus it is fully customizable and has got a ton of features to help you out along the way.

Although it is true that Wordpress is good for SEO, everything, absolutely everything about SBI is geared for SEO. So don't let that argument dissuade you. If anything, you may be MORE successful with SEO with SBI because it forces you to think through the tough questions about niche and keywords that most bloggers skip over.

Blogs are fine and have their place in marketing. A website is good IF it is geared for a niche and IF it is geared for attracting customers with value. SBI guides you step by step in doing that. That's where the vale comes in ($300/year)

A blog can be very fast to set up. Within minutes you can be focused on content and starting to create leads. A GOOD website, and following all the SBI lessons, will take many weeks... more likely months. And SBI teaches constant updates to your site to keep it viable, just as you'd need to do with a blog.

Good luck with your decision!

Sean made an interesting observation about SBIers. They are a close knit family. Why? Because they have had success. Its just like everything else in marketing.

You need to use the product in order to accurately promote it. I do have an SBI site and would like to clarify a comment made earlier. You DO own your site with SBI.

Lis Sourbutts (spelling) tried to start a war with SBI not long ago and she made a correction to her first report about several claims. One was the ownership of your site.

The thing about SBI is they know how to build sites. You can get an online presence cheaper but not many content management systems will actually teach you about writing keyword focused content. And then there are the included tools to consider.

In my book. Their Brainstorm It tool and Analyze It are worth the cost of SBI in itself. The rest are all bonuses. I use these tools for all my content even my non SBI site.

I know SB is expensive but if it works for you and it gives you want you need then go ahead.
I favour Wordpress and I build Wordpress sites for people to get back onto Google PPC. It is also the best from an SEO perspective. If you don't have the technical skills then pay someone to do it for you.

The alternative is of course that you can you Wordpress.com or Blogger.com and still get a pretty good site up. These work well and are great for the newbie, you just don't get the same flexibility however.

I would definitely agree that WordPress is probably the best ticket. There is a site called http://www.000webhost.com that offers free hosting, but there are limits.... 1500MB of storage & 100GB of Bandwidth... This is great for someone that is on a budget since it's free. You will not get a customized domain, but that where GoDaddy or YourPowerHost.com come in. You can buy a domain name for under 10 bucks and then Mask and Forward to the free hosting service...
The free Hosting Service is also a nice place to park your beta sites before you do an actual launch....Hope this helps.
