Do You Need A Web Site or a Web Business?
If you're thinking of starting a website, there's one critical question you must ask yourself first…
Do you want a web site or do you want a web BUSINESS?
There's a huge difference between the two.
A web site is a hobby you pay to enjoy, and a web business is a hobby (or a store, if you'd prefer) that pays you.
While you're sleeping, eating, cruising the net, taking vacations with your family, a successful online business makes you money every day!
Even when you are ignoring it!
How great is that!
But first you really need to understand this key fact -- A web business can set you up for life. But a web site . . . ?
A Web Site Won't Make You Money
I've seen this happen with way too many of my friends, family, colleagues, and acquaintances . . .
- They want to make money online.
- They have an idea they think will earn them money.
- They know they need a website.
- They spend days or weeks or months on research, and web design, and writing content.
- They hire a reputable web developer who makes them a fine website.
- They pay thousands of dollars for their sparkling new web site.
- They wait, and wait, and wait, growing more discouraged, as the expected income fails to appear.
- They give up. They let the domain name drop. They mentally write off all the expenses and time as a lost cause.
- They decide that you can't make money on the web after all.
It's all so unnecessary, and a real waste. It all stems from this confusion....
Anyone Can Make A Website, But…
Lots of people will offer to create a web site for you. They'll charge you an arm and a leg for it too. And it's money down the drain.
People think they're paying for a web business, but at the end of the day, they've got an attractive (hopefully) and useful (occasionally) online business card. That they paid several thousand dollars for.
Or else they decide to make their own website, with pretty much the same result.
It doesn't take long for people to decide that they can't earn money online, and drop their dreams of an online business.
The Sordid Truth (My Story)
This scenario is all too familiar to me, because I did it myself. In fact, I did it several times! I've made seven websites, and the first six have earned only a few hundred dollars altogether.
If I told you what the average monthly visits were, you'd laugh! And I'm too embarrassed to say.
So I've been through the procedure myself, many times.
The only difference is, I was desperate enough to keep trying.
And finally I found the way that works.
Wicca-Spirituality.com is the proof. I now receive around four hundred thousand visitors every year ... a number which increases all the time.
And the difference really shows in my income! I finally have a web business, instead of just another web site.
Now I have people looking at how Wicca-Spirituality.com is doing, and asking me how they can do it.
This is what I tell them.
What Makes the Difference?
The difference, as with so many projects, is having the right tools.
For a web business, that's SBI. I swear by them!
When people ask me how to really make money on the web, I always say that if you're serious about making money online, you pretty much need to use SBI to do it. (Find out about the exceptions to that rule here.)
And the real plus is, it doesn't cost you serious money, either!
What The Heck Is SBI?
SBI is a set of tools that make it easy specifically designed for non-webmasters to make, and run, your own professional-looking web site, but that's barely the tip of the iceberg.
The real beauty of SBI is that it helps you create a web site that the search engines and your visitors love.
It gives you, as the saying goes, the tools AND the talent.
It teaches you everything you need to know, and takes care of a whole lot of details you really don't want to know. Because having a successful web business is more than putting up a site and hoping people find you. There are ways to make it work.
SBI teaches you how.
The bottom line?
It helps you make a web business that earns you a tidy income.
You don't have to take my word for it. Find out why thousands of people love SBI.
