Earn a Full-Time Income Online

I get a lot of emails from people asking me if I really earn a full-time income online. I can understand their skepticism. There's a lot of hype surrounding making money online and often times it's presented in a way that seems too good to be true.

Plus, the Net is faceless so your interaction with people is often limited to e-mail or instant messaging. It's hard to know who to trust and you certainly don't want to waste your time and money on a worthless scheme or program.

Well, my online success story is indeed true. I began my venture back in 1998. I invested $20 in an MLM program and I turned that $20 bucks into about $6,000 over the course of 9 months. I was in college at the time so you can imagine how elated I was to make that kind of money during one of the poorest times in my life. :-)

That MLM program has since shut down. However, I took the knowledge I gained from that and began creating websites to help people create their own personal and business websites.

That's when was born. Even though the information on the site is completely free, I earn money by participating in various affiliate programs that relate to the theme of my site.

You can do the same. You don't have to sell any products to make money online. You can build a content-rich website on your hobby or a topic you are passionate about and monetize it with related affiliated programs.

For example...

Say you love crafts. You can create a website about this. Your goal would be to create as much content as you can on the topic so you can attract free search engine traffic (Google, MSN and Yahoo, for example).

Once you begin getting traffic, you earn money with different monetization models. For instance, Google AdSense pays you to display ads on your site.

If your site is about crafts, the AdSense program will automatically display ads related to your content. When your site visitors click on your ads, you earn money. I make anywhere from $1500 to $1800 per month just with this program alone.

You could also join's affiliate program and promote their craft-related books. Refer your audience to buy these books and Amazon pays you a commission for every sale. There are tons of free programs on the Net like this.

I also have a fitness site called and it earns money in the same ways explained above. See how my two sites are totally different in regards to the topics, but the money making concept is the same?

If you decide this is something you'd like to try, do me a favor. Don't use any host except Site Build It!. They are the only company that provides all the tools you need in one place AND the coaching that will walk you through the process step-by-step.

Could you do this on your own without Site Build It!? Absolutely. BUT... you will be left to figure out how to attract traffic and finding programs to earn money from your site. After all, with no traffic and affiliate programs, you won't make any money.

I didn't create with Site Build It! but I used it for my newest site, and I received free search engine traffic to that site 3 times faster than I did with sites I've built using the old fashioned method. That's because SBI! coached me as I wrote each page to ensure it ranked well in the major search engines.

I'm so glad SiteSell finally launched a video that allows you to see how Site Build It! works. It's really difficult to explain the process in words because there's so much to tell. So watching a video will give you a much clearer picture of what you'll be getting for your money.

I'll say it again...

If you want to make money with a website, Site Build It! is the only way to go. If you do decide to go the cheaper route and you have no website building experience, you'll have a lot to learn on your own.

But if you have Site Build It!, it eliminates a lot of the technical things you'd have to figure out if you didn't use it.

The key to making money online is not becoming a web programmer or designer, it's about writing content and ranking high in the major search engines.

SBI! takes care of all the programming in the background while you can focus on what's most important. Watch the video here!
