Even though I loved my job as a truck driver, it wasn’t something I wanted to do the rest of my life. The 50 to 70hr work weeks were starting to get to me and all the time away from home was tough, too. At the same time, I dreaded going back to working in an office. I had to find a solution. That’s when I found Site Build It and this website was born. About a year later, this website was earning so much money that I quit my full time job as a truck driver.
How I started this website with no web building skills
First, I’ll give you a little background on myself and tell you how I personally got started in building websites. If you want to try it for yourself, I’ve provided all the links and details for you a bit further down the page. If you don’t want to try it, that’s cool too. I hope you enjoy my story anyway! It’s been one hell of a ride!
When I first began researching building websites, I had absolutely zero knowledge about how to do it. I knew how to search for information online and that’s about it. But I wanted to start some sort of “business” from my truck and building a website seemed like a great fit for my lifestyle. It was something I could grow at my own pace, over time, and with minimal investment (I spent $300 to start my business and my expenses are only $300 / year now – what other business can you do that with??). It was something that would allow me to work when I want and from where I want at any time I want. After much research, I decided that I needed to educate myself on how to build a website and Site Build It was the answer.
This website was my first SBI! site. Since then, I’ve started a couple of others such as DogFoodInsider.com.
Why I chose SBI to start my online business
I could go on forever about why I chose SBI. But what ended up selling me on them was this video overview of SBI. At that point, I looked to see if they had a money back guarantee, which they do. For 3 months, I could try their program out and if I decided it wasn’t for me, I could cancel and get all my money back. That’s when I decided it was definitely something I was trying out.
Another money making “system” huh?
Well first of all, SBI never claims that this is a “system” or something which is guaranteed to make you money. In fact, they outright tell you it won’t come quickly (their mascot is the tortoise). And second, I honestly don’t know what the average SBI website earns. Not a clue. All I know is it took me a year for my website to earn me a full time living through residual income making me more than twice what I made as a truck driver and I work from home everyday. I live a total dream and I wish everyone could live the life I live. It’s absolutely wonderful. Whether you decide to give this a shot or not is up to you. If you’re interested, I’ve got a ton of info to help you get started.
How exactly do you make your money?
That’s very simple. I create quality content which the search engines (Google) like and they send people to my site, who then click on advertisements. Yep, in exchange for free and helpful content there are some advertisements sprinkled in here and there. If you search the site closely, you’ll notice them. Yes, I make a full time income off of simple advertising. That’s it! That’s the power of having lots of visitors to the website and SBI will teach you how to get all of those visitors.
See For Yourself
If you’re interested in a money making website of your own, you should definitely check out this video if you haven’t yet (it’s the same video I linked to earlier). Also be sure to see some of their other success stories too (I’m not cool enough to be included as one of their success stories). Literally thousands of people are doing this, though! Check out how you don’t even need to sell anything. All you need is a passion about something…anything! My passion is driving, hence I built a website about driving.
And of course, if you have any questions about Site Build It, you can ask your questions about SBI here. There is no “secret” here. They will answer any question you have honestly and directly.
I highly recommend you ask them the toughest question you can come up with! If you don’t feel comfortable asking them, you can always contact me directly and I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Earning Money with a Website in 2023
Much has changed since I wrote this article on SBI. Now, everything appears to have found a platform where it can be monetized online – videos on YouTube, viral Facebook posts, and yes, website blogs!
Though earning revenue online seems to still be extremely difficult for some, those who can find the right niche have no doubt benefited a lot from the changes that took place in the online world these recent years.
I’m thankful for these changes as it not only opened up opportunities for me to make money with my website, it also allowed me to experiment a bit on my content and how to earn from them.
To keep up with the changes, I’ve listed three of the most reliable ways to earn money with your website this 2023:
- Advertising – selling ad space has kept me going since the day I started with my first website. This traditional way of making money online remains the top source of my revenue. The new updates on technology and social media platforms being available only allowed me to have more creative ways to monetize my website.
- Affiliate marketing – Another bread and butter for me here. I’ve been doing this even before I learned what it does, and it has become an extremely popular form to monetize a website nowadays. How is it done? You just need to choose an affiliate program and post an affiliate link on your website to recommend their product to your audience. You earn every time someone visits the link and spends some time browsing the content. It sounds simple, but this requires skill in finding the best programs as well.For bloggers, you can also earn from affiliate marketing by writing or posting content about a certain product. The key here is you have to have a good following for brands to agree and make a deal with you. Most bloggers earn a hefty amount from this type of project.
- Webinar hosting – haven’t tried this one yet but webinar hosting has become an increasingly popular method to connect with an audience. Here, you will simply act as a host of a free webinar that promotes a product. Tutorial videos are a good example. Sounds interesting, right?
