If you have decided to put up some real estate on the internet, whether you are starting an online business, or as a showcase for an offline business, you may be wondering what is the best way to build a website?
Well the options are plenty and at most confusing once you start to research all the possibilities.
And I am speaking from experience here because I have tried most of them.
But even though the learning curve seems steep, if you have read the article
5 Good Reasons To Build A Website,
you may have decided that building a website to build an online business or support an offline business is something you want to do.
So getting back to the question of "what is the best way to build a website?" - let’s look at what your options are, and the pro’s and con’s of each, along with the concepts of building a website.
And after looking at all of that, I'll answer this question with what I have found to be the best website building solution, along with the reasons why I choose it.
Website Building Options
The first option most people turn to if they have the budget is to hire a website designer, and you probably will spend about $500 for a minimal bare bones site and on up into the thousands of dollars if you want a lot more bells and whistles.
If you have the money the pros of course are that it’s done for you, no html and other computer techie stuff to learn.
The cons – well you have your brand new shiny website, but what do you do with it now?
Is your website designer going to continually update your site for you, check for broken links, build incoming links, submit every change and update to the search engines so you will be found and listed?
Are they going to add your new content for you, manage your email and communication with clients and add and manage your monetization models?
Will they continue to research high quality keywords with adequate demand that are under supplied for you to build more traffic generating content about?
The answers to all these questions are – maybe, but probably not.
And if you do find a web designer to do all this, you are going to need quite a budget to finance it.
But even then, there are no guarantees that you'll have a successful website. There are literally thousands of beautifully designed new websites put up on the internet that completely disappear and never see the light of day after awhile.
Now what if you are on the opposite end of the spectrum financially and need to start on a shoestring to build a website?
Well there are free website options available, and I have tried some of them out. But in my opinion it was a waste of time.
You could figure out how to put together a few pages of a website, but most free services offer very limited and restricted options unless you upgrade and purchase more services.
And if you stick to the free option most likely you will have to try and work with these limitations or allow the website company to place ads on your site that they will benefit from.
So even if this is acceptable to you, we are still back to the “what do you do with it” once you build it.
You will still have to manually submit to all the search engines every time you make a change or add to you site. You will need tools to do keyword research and you will manually have to be checking your site for broken links and other problems.
And what if you want to collect emails and build a list?
If you want to send out a newsletter or promotions you will have to purchase a service to do that for you too.
And then you have to try and make all this work on a site that you don’t own.
So could you build your own website that you own and learn to do all this yourself?
There are lots of options to do this too. You could buy a website design software program such as DreamWeaver or Front Page which run about $200 to $300.
Then you will need to pay for web hosting which you can get for about $10 a month. I can't tell you which is the best website building software, I think it's a matter of personal preference.
You will also have to find a good keyword research tool to use.
There are free options such as Google’s Keyword Tool and the free Wordtracker program, but you still have to research supply manually which can take up a lot of precious time.
And you will probably get so frustrated at how clunky that process is (believe me I know) that you will be ready to shell out the $300 cost for a Wordtracker subscription.
Then you will need to research and purchase a domain name.
Now you will also need a File Transfer Protocol program to upload all your website files that you create to your website host.
There are free options here, but again I got so frustrated with them that I finally shelled out $40.00 to buy a program.
Now the advantages of doing this are that once you purchase all these programs you own them, and once you tackle the steep learning curve you are empowered with the ability to build websites on your own.
But it's also like having someone dump a 10,000 piece puzzle all over your floor and you have to put it together.
And you will still have ongoing costs for monthly web hosting, yearly domain renewal and also yearly Wordtracker renewal too.
Plus you still have to do all the constant submitting and site maintenance on your own.
A Better Solution........
So is there a better answer than the solutions we have discussed so far?
SBI will help you avoid chasing down the rabbit hole of how to build a website, ending up spending lots of money and time with very little to show for it.
That's what happened to this guy before SBI turned him into a Webmaster Superhero: (cheesy fun - I hope you enjoy the satire!)
And SBI will also help you to avoid the get rich quick schemes and scams so prevalent on the internet today.
Believe me - the "Tao of SBI" is a great antidote to the get rich quick, and overnight solution mentality that so permeates the world of internet marketing.
Now it took me about 5 years of experimenting with all these other website building methods to finally realize what an amazing value SBI was.
The $300 price tag may seem like a lot at first, but after using it now to build this website I am continually amazed at how everything is so well laid out, and every aspect of website building and maintenance is covered.
A few days ago I got an email from SBI telling me that one of my links was broken, where it was and how to fix it.
Now this seems like a simple thing, but when you have a website with perhaps hundreds of pages and links, can you imagine manually trying to keep track of all of them and catch them when something goes wrong and needs to be fixed?
But that’s just one of the many automated functions of SBI.
And it’s just the tip of the iceberg, SBI holds your hand and guides you every step of the way in the website building process.
And with SBI you don’t just build a website, you build a successful internet business.
Are you ready to build a website that has real value too?
