Site Build It Review: The SBI Scam
Is SBI a Scam? Thinking of Building Your Website
and Online Business with Site Build It? Read On...
It's a fact that there are a lot of scams on the internet
(just like in the offline world) and it can sometimes feel like
it's impossible to separate the truth from outright lies. To
begin this Site Build It review, let's look at the "SBI scam"
If you are reading this it's probably because you've heard of
Site Build It! and are doing your due diligence before making
a final decision. You may have done a Google search for the term
"Site Build It Review" or "SBI Scam". I know
I did before I got my first SBI! site.
The results of my searches showed the vast majority to be people
who were using SBI! and were very happy with the results. Who
better to do a review than someone who has actually used it?
However, from time to time I found some sites or blogs with a
Site Build It review that said "Don't Buy SBI!" or "Is
Site Build It a Scam?" or just plain old "SBI Scam".
What Was Going On? What's the Big "SBI Scam" Thing
Before we get into that a little disclosure is in order.
Many of the websites that have headlines like "SBI Scam"
or, well, even the headline of this article, "Site
Build It Review: The SBI Scam" are written by people like
myself who like and use SBI.
Why is this being done? It's just good search engine optimization
(SEO). Before I decided to buy SBI! I searched for dirt on SBI!
and used search terms like "site build it review" and
"sbi scam". So, it just makes sense that others doing
research on Site Build It! would probably do the same. Yes,
my secret is out — I want people to come visit my site!
SiteSell (the company that offers SBI!) has an affiliate program
that allows every SBI! website owner the possibility of earning
a commission for customers they refer. This doesn't change the
cost at all. Purchasing through an affiliate just means that they
get a percentage instead of SiteSell getting the full amount.
That's just fair.
Does this mean that I am biased and will lie my face off to get
the sale? Of course not. I put my name on this site! I want to
ensure that you know exactly what SBI! is, what it can do for
you and whether or not SBI! is the right product for you because
— SBI! is not for everyone, but more about
SBI! is about helping people to build successful online
businesses. That means that SiteSell and I are interested
in your long term success.
Okay, that said, let's get on with the SBI Review...
Site Build It Review: The "SBI Scam" Question
Not every SBI Review is a glowing recommendation.
You may have found some sites or blogs that have harsh criticisms.
Interestingly enough they are often spread by "reviewers"
who have never actually used SBI and are simply repeating misinformation
they have heard elsewhere. Of course, it's fine to review something
you haven't used — so long as you do proper research
As a result of some of these so-called "reviews" SiteSell has posted an official response to the supposed "Site Build It Scam" here.
SBI! has thousands of happy customers. People who have followed
the extensive educational materials and guidance available and
who have put in the necessary work to create a thriving online
business. But no matter how well a product works there will always
be some that complain.
Is it possible to fail with an SBI! website? Absolutely.
SBI! takes work, but not everyone is willing to do
what it takes. SBI! provides a step-by-step guide
(called the Action
Guide) that tells you what you need to do, when you
need to do it and why. But all that is useless if it
isn't put into action.
Some feel they already know-it-all and ignore the
guide. When things go wrong they blame SBI! Okay,
confession time. When I first started I thought I was pretty
smart. I ignored the Action Guide and my early results showed
it. Take it from me; paying for expert advise and then ignoring
it is foolish. Some reevaluate what they are doing
and make the necessary changes, others quit and say, "SBI
is a scam".
Misery loves company. These disgruntled people then try to
convince others that just because they have failed that everyone
elso will fail too. In this way they selfishly prevent
others from discovering the opportunity for success that SBI!
By not using the included research tools to identify the
best theme for their site they end up choosing a niche
that is too broad or does not have enough demand to support
a business. It might seem obvious but it's important
not to overlook. Of course, this is true for any
business, online or offline.
Failing to research the potential monetization for
a market niche. You will want to know that there
are enough ways to generate income and that there is enough
demand to make your site profitable. Again, this seems obvious
but it's critical to not start building an online business
in a niche that doesn't have marketable products or services.
Site Build It Review: Myths and Misconceptions
While the internet is a great research tool it's sometimes hard
to separate the truth from the myths and misconceptions. For example,
I've found information on the web about SBI! that is just plain
Sometimes this comes from people like those above. Other times
it comes from people passing on misconceptions without taking
the time to do proper research. In some cases it comes from hucksters
who have a vested interest in confusing you because they want
to sell you their latest get-rich-quick scheme instead.
Sometimes it comes from very savvy internet marketers who have
years of hard won experience who claim that you can do it on your
own without SBI! While that may be true for them, is it true for
the average person?
No Site Build It review would be complete without discussing
the myths and misconceptions. So what are some of the claims that
are being made? Here are some I have found...
You don’t own your domain name.
My Site Build It Review Response: FALSE
Your SBI! domain name is registered in your name, you own
it — period. This can easily be verified. Look up the
registered name of any SBI! website in a WhoIs search.
You can't move to a different host, you are locked-in
My Site Build It Review Response: FALSE
You can switch to another host whenever you like. There is
no charge to do this and simply follows ICANN regulations.
However, SBI! provides many tools and functions to help you
build and promote your site. If you switch to a different
host you would, of course, lose those benefits.
If you switch to another host you lose your whole
website and can't take your pages with you.
My Site Build It Review Response:
You own the copyright on all your pages. You built your website
and you can download the pages and associated files to your
computer anytime you like. You can transfer those files to
any other host you like.
This process would be easier for those who create their own
HTML pages rather than the online site builder, but either
way you own and have the right to your copyrighted material.
You can do everything SBI! does with cheap hosting
and information freely available on the web.
My Site Build It Review Response:
Okay, I didn't rate this one as outright FALSE. This
claim is usually made by very technically savvy people with
many years of internet marketing experience. They feel that
with the expertise they wield and with their in-depth knowledge
of all kinds of information, services and tools that they
could hobble together an online business that provides much
of the functionality and services that SBI! provides.
They say just get a "cheap hosting" package and
that all of the information you will need is "freely
available" on the internet. The problem for the average
person like you and me is that this "solution"
basically puts us back at square one...
This means we are faced with searching millions of pages of
"internet marketing" websites trying to come to
terms with a myriad of conflicting ideas and trying to figure
out which of the thousands of internet marketing gurus to
Sure, the knowledge is out there. Some of it may even be "free".
But where? And how long is it going to take to find just the
right combination of approaches, skills, tools and systematic
processes we need to succeed?
It could take YEARS of time and YEARS of trial and
error. And that would be far from "free".
In fact, many of these experts use advanced systems to do
what they do and by the time you calculate what it really
costs you would be very far from free indeed. How far?...
SBI! to so-called "cheap hosting" services here.
all of the tools included in SBI! that you would
wind up having to pay for from third party companies or scrounging
for "free" on the internet. To be fair to
Site Build It review that list and ask yourself how
long it would take and how much it would cost to come close
to matching SBI!
SBI! has done all that work for you and they've put
the information and tools you need all together in one place.
Starting with the step-by-step Action
Guide that shows you exactly what you need to do at every
phase of your site's development. How to research your site.
How to optimize your site's pages, how to develop relationships
with your customers, how to monetize your site.
Sure, you could spend years going in circles on the
web or you could spend that time with SBI! building your business
SBI! is for "newbies".
My Site Build It Review Response: TRUE
Self-important "gurus" who like to look
down on others to bolster their own egos like to claim that
SBI! is for "newbies" or "noobs". They
think that by insulting people with less experience than them
that we will all be impressed with how clever they are.
It's true that SBI! is the best solution for beginners
as it gives them everything they need, including the guidance
and support all in one place. But I hardly consider that to
be a bad thing. Is SBI! for beginners? Absolutely, but its
powerful set of tools are flexible enough to be used by experienced
webmasters and marketers.
So I would have to say that the statement "SBI! is for
newbies" is false in the sense that while SBI!
is an excellent choice for beginners it is certainly not just
In fact, experienced webmasters can use their favorite HTML
and graphics editors like Dreamweaver and Photoshop and upload
their own pages. You don't have to use the simple page building
system that allows beginners to create their website without
having to learn HTML programming first.
In fact, experienced webmasters can use SBI! to create websites
that get far better results for their clients than they are
currently getting. If you are a webmaster considering using

"The only way
you will really "get" SBI! is to use it yourself.
We have used it for over 4 years now and it keeps evolving
and getting better. It is the center of our business and
it has taught us about marketing on the web in a way that
no other tool could have. SBI has created a business for
us that brings us wealth, independence and a feeling of
being in control of our lives. It will do the same for you
if you let it. That's it. It is that simple. Go ahead and
give it a try."
