One Website Can Change Your Lifestyle
If you are thinking of breaking out from your current working situation, starting a business and also earning a passive income then this is, in my opinion, the best education you'll ever get to achieving Financial Freedom.
Whilst earning a monthly income now is important to me, I, like many people do not have adequate pension provision in place, which is becoming a concern to me. I may only be 38, but the amount I would need to put away every month to achieve a moderate pension in my retirement is unaffordable - I want to enjoy my life while I am still young and I don’t want to have to work well into my 70’s!
By setting up my own content web business, I now have the financial security of knowing that my monthly income will continue even once the website is completed. The hard work will be done and I can reap the rewards for the rest of my life with just a bit of tweaking and maintenance on a monthly basis. Now that’s what I call real financial security.
The income grows steadily, day after day after day, whether I work on my website or not. It grows faster when I do a lot of work, but it still grows while I go away on holiday. I earn money while I travel, I earn money while I'm socialising, I earn money while I sleep. It's pretty hard to beat.
What's also hard to beat is the feeling that
you own your life and your time.
There is no way I could ever go back to working for others in an office.
I know it may sound too good to be true, but by the end of this you will understand more about how it all works.
Before you continue, however, I want you to know this. There is no such thing as getting rich quickly online and if you want to succeed like me you have to be ready to work hard and learn many new things. You don’t need to be a computer whiz or an academic, but you do have to be
passionate about your subject.
If you are in desperate need of money now, this is probably not going to be the thing for you. But if you are ready to embark on a journey filled with learning and fun, and can accept it may take some time... you are in the right place.
How I Earn a Living
I am an affiliate marketer. That just means I have built a website on a topic that interests me (like this one). I teach people what I know, learn how to drive traffic to my site and earn commissions by referring products from my site.
I also make money through sponsor ads and displaying Google ads on my website. Notice there is nothing fancy about this site. I didn't have to try to compete with Facebook or Twitter and become the next social media giant just to make good money online.
You can actually create something as simple as a content (information only) website like I have done.
All of the income comes from ads and affiliate programs/recommendations. I don't sell a single product directly from this site. No order-taking. No shipping. No customer service. So you are not relying on selling a product to earn an income which then ceases when you stop working on your site.
Is this really as easy as it sounds?
That is probably the most common question. The answer is, yes and no. It depends how you define easy.
It certainly isn't a matter of pressing a few buttons and the money starts rolling in. The one point I must stress, is this: it takes time, hard work and commitment to build a successful website. Do not underestimate the amount of time, the amount of hard work, and the amount of commitment involved!
But that's all it takes. It does not take exceptional writing skills, it does not take technical knowledge, it does not require that you know anything about computers or websites. Nothing.
You will initially have to learn a lot, but that learning is part of SBI. You will be guided through the whole process. Anybody who is fairly bright and who is willing to learn and work can do this, no matter what their background. So if that's what you wondered, then the answer is yes. It really is that easy. You can do it.
Not sure what to write about?
I thought the same thing when I started. But as I already mentioned above, SBI teaches you everything you need to know to build a successful website, including how to write compelling content.
Ken Evoy wrote a fabulous book called Make Your Content Pre-Sell. It teaches how to write for the web. The book has always been part of SBI available for free for SBIers, but outsiders had to buy it. But since some time in 2006 it is totally free for non SBIers, too.
If someone tells me they worry about their writing I send them this link: you can

Why Site Build It! and not a cheaper Host?
SBI! makes online business success do-able. Anyone can succeed, even someone like me with no web building experience, with an all-in-one process, tools, and guidance.
The process is simplified to such a degree that success (i.e. profits, not the mere presence of a Web site) is achievable even for a beginner. For an experienced person, achieving success is even smoother.
You get more than just a "site builder." You don't need to worry about looking for separate hosting, paying for a separate keyword research tool, handling site submissions, integrating autoresponders etc. see the full list of features here.
Unlike the other web hosts that just give you the space for your site and a "good luck", Site Build It! actually gives you a training guide (with video) that shows you how to build your website, drive traffic, make money with Google, affiliate marketing, etc.
You aren't left alone when it comes to building and marketing your site. Not only do you receive the Video Action Guide but you also get a site builder, mailing list manager (to collect and send e-mails), help with driving traffic and access to a member forum.
The member forum is amazing. It is flooded with other SBI! owners who are ready and willing to give you advice and help with building and marketing your site.
How Much Can I Make? How Long Will It Take?
I cannot and will not tell you how long it will take you to make money online. The reason is simple. I don't know. Everyone is different and it depends on how quickly you learn how to effectively market your site online.
If you follow the SBI! Action Guide and work hard, you will have a greater chance of succeeding than someone who just breezes through the tutorials and doesn't put a lot of work into their website.
If there's one thing I want you to get from this article, it's the idea that this is real work. However, if you enjoy this as much as I do, the rewards are unlimited. I am my own boss and I cannot imagine having another "job".
I'm Not The Only Success Story
