How I Made a
Website About Fundraising
And how you could create a website of your own and work from home too....

Work at home -Build a website

This page is really a continuation of my About Me page. So much of my life is wrapped up in my website now that the 2 are pretty intertwined.

My website has been really interesting to create and is now earning me a great income. I could not have done it however without the help of a great website building company called Site Build It - SBI.

More about them later but first I'm sure you have some questions. Lets see if I can answer them:

How easy is it to build a website?

Really easy if you do it the SBI way! If you know nothing about websites, computer code, design principles etc etc........(pretty much like me).....then you simply use a template called Block Builder which builds the web-pages for you bit by bit.

To get the right look and feel for your web-pages you can choose from a vast range of ready made templates (or design your own). You can change this as many times as you wish and try out all sorts of different looks at the click of a button.

Have a quick look at just some of the styles you can choose.

If you are more competent on the computer you can upload your own pages from pretty much any web design software package - but you really don't need to. Many of the most successful sites are built using SBI's Block Builder

I promise that if you can write a word document and send an email you can build a web page. If you can build 30 pages you've got yourself a website!

How do I choose what my site should be about?

All sorts of things can make a great subject for a website. It all depends what you are interested in.

Some people have a clear idea what they want to do and build a site about their interests and hobbies.

Others want to set up a website to expand an existing business ie. a fishing tackle shop wanting to start selling online.

Others are not quite clear what they might do. I was torn between a site about children's parties, kid's crafts and fundraising.

SBI shows you how to choose what would
work best and make money.

How do I get my website name?

This is called your domain name and SBI help you decide what it should be and register it. Its really easy to do and good fun choosing.

Worth spending some time on this though.
A good name for your website is really important.

How do I get people to visit my website?

The most important thing for any website is to rank highly with the search engines like Google. This will bring traffic to your site.

SBI shows you how to concentrate on building a site that both the search engines and your visitors love.

How do I make money from a website?

Well firstly not everyone wants to. There are many people out there who have built great websites around their hobbies and interests who have no interest in using them to make money. Also some sites, for instance church, club, school or charity websites are built to serve other purposes.

If you do want to earn income from your website however the 3 main ways are:

  • Sell a Product  There are all sorts of things you can sell on a website from small items such as jewelery to quite large machinery and equipment.
  • Become an Affiliate  Affiliates earn money by directing visitors from their site to specific commercial websites and earn commission on any purchases those visitors make.For instance if you have a site about gardening you might have an affiliate link to a company that sell lawnmowers or garden plants. As visitors go to that site from yours they are tagged as your customers. If someone then makes a purchase you will receive a percentage of the retail price.The advantage for these companies is that you are doing the hard work by attracting people to your great gardening website. The visitors you send them will be far more inclined to buy gardening products.There are all sorts of affiliate schemes covering pretty much every type of website you can imagine.
  • Google Adsense This is the main way my site makes me money - I'm sure you will have noticed the small blocks of adverts on the pages of many websites including this one. The ads are targeted at whatever the theme for the website is. So, for instance, my site carries ads for fundraising companies, but a cookery site would have ones for pots, pans and recipe books.

    Whichever country someone views your site from Google ads from that country will appear.The website owner gets paid a fee every time someone clicks on an ad, regardless of whether they buy anything or not!.

    Google Ads are really easy to set up on your site, matching the ads to your theme is automatically done by Google and they earn you money 24 hrs a day every day of the week. Google Ads mean that you can still make revenue from a site that doesn't actually sell anything. You can build a website about anything you are interested in, put Google ads on it and make money. Look on it like the adverts in a hobby magazine. The advantage of a website is that unlike a magazine it doesn't get put in the recycling bin after a month. It actually keeps on making you money year after year. Things I wrote for my website when I first started, still make me money today. Every morning I click on my Adsense account and it shows me exactly how many clicks my site took and how much I earned in the last 24hrs. What a lovely way to start the day!

It sounds like a lot of work...... how will I know what to do?

SBI breaks the whole process down into a handy Action Guide.

This easy to use guide becomes your bible. You can even watch a video on you computer for each of the 10 stages that make up the programme. (This is the method I preferred as it made it all so easy) or you can follow written instructions.

If you do get stuck with any part of the programme you can also use The Forums. This is an online community of other SBI-ers, both first timers and old hands. You can ask any question you like and someone will answer it. You can also look at all the previous questions about your topic to see if the answer is already there.

Being a rather reserved Englishman I was a bit nervous of The Forums when I started but everyone is always really friendly and even the dopiest question (and yes I asked my share!) got a quick and helpful answer.

The best way to build a business is slowly and steadily.

Site Build It. Working At Home

Well this is me
"At the office"

So that's it. I hope that has answered your questions (at least some of them anyway).

Site Build It - SBI is allowing all sorts of different people to work from home and build a business with a difference around a subject they love. But don't take my word for it -

To summarize -
Why do so many people love SBI?

SBI! is the only product that takes the time to prepare you to build a profitable business, before you jump into building your site.

SBI! removes the technical barriers allowing you to keep your attention on building your business. Many functions are completely automated. You don't need to know anything upfront about building a Web site in order to succeed.

The Action Guide presents a step-by-step process, presented in both written and video formats. All you have to do is follow it. The most successful SBI! owners say "all they did was follow the Guide." They don't get sidetracked, or have to guess at what to do next. SBI!'s guided approach helps them reach their goals.

The company offers unlimited Customer Support. SBI! owners often call it the best they've ever experienced. And the SBI! Forums complete the picture. They are friendly and helpful.

Choosing your best site concept is not always as obvious as you might think. SBI has special tools that show you the best path for your particular business, reveal some surprises, and help you make the right choice.

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 continue to use this simple system to build great web- pages. However SBI! is compatible with popular HTML editors (ex., Dreamweaver) and image tools (ex., Photoshop, Flash, etc.), so you can easily use advanced page-building techniques if you wish.

When it's time to create your site's Look & Feel, SBI! provides fully customizable, easy-to-use templates. You can choose and create a professional-looking website, even if you have no design skills. However, if you are a designer, you can create and upload your own.

SBI includes domain name analysis, optimization, and registration. You will develop the best name for maximum profitability in your niche. (It's often different than what you had planned.)

Traffic Statistics are updated daily helping you know exactly how many visitors visited your site and which are the most popular pages.

The tortoise approach symbolizes SBI!'s steady-and-sure approach. It's definitely not GRQ (GetRichQuick) and keeps you from getting distracted by false promises or dead-end tools and strategies that end up costing more money.

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.
