A little about me...
My name is Cari. Owner and webmaster of EasyMakeupGuide.com. Words I never imagined myself using. I had absolutely NO knowledge of computer programming website design. I had basic skills on how to search the internet and how to use email - that was about it. My website can now provide me with an ongoing income without having to attend to it every day!
Many people tell me they would love to earn a little extra online but easily become discouraged at the idea of making their own website.
Here is all how all of this began.
I was a makeup artist before I had my children. It was a hobby and passion of mine for many years. In addition to my full-time job in health care, I had wedding bookings for most weekends of the wedding season and I LOVED it.
Fast forward to 2007. I was 7 months pregnant for my 2nd child and thought it would be so great to have an extended maternity leave without compromising my lifestyle. My priorities had obviously shifted so I had given up the makeup artistry hobby. I searched and searched online only to find many stay-at-home gigs I would feel quite weary and distrustful of. It IS very difficult to buy into business opportunities that promise and preach about getting rich quick and that just wasn't my "thing". It wasn't my goal either as I knew I was no salesperson. All I wanted was a plan I could fall back on in the event that I decided to stay home longer. Plus - I felt I had a very good knowledge base on makeup application that could keep me talking for a while...ha!
So, I won't lie. It was quite a learning curve to start building this website but in such a positive way. I didn't mind the work. It was actually fun. I was talking about things that were of interest to me. I felt empowered after listening to the action guided videos. They were super easy to understand, even for someone like me, who was previously completely clueless about this whole process. It took about 2 months to get a good enough base to incorporate Google Ads. Every day, I made progress and that was encouraging. I was beginning to understand the world of web design which is something I NEVER imagined myself doing. I just typed and typed and away it went. There is fantastic, reliable support if clarification was needed as well. Tons of experts online who are waiting to answer your questions.
I would soon be at home for one whole year (with my hands full of course) with my 2 girls, and thought this would be a good time to try to build my website. With my husband's support and help, I managed to set aside the time to follow through with my goals. And here I am today, writing about my success through this wonderful journey just as I had read from other websites a few years back. It's a great feeling having accomplished something that seemed so out of reach.
I had NO KNOWLEDGE of building a website...at all. I had read all the real life testimonials and analyzed all the other SBI websites and the people behind them. This made it realistic for me. This made it achievable.
SBI stands for Site Build It! and helps you to turn any hobby, passion or skill into a viable, successful online business. You probably don't even realize that almost any topic can make money with a website.
Build a website?! You got it.
Remember, I was new to computer programming and to most of the internet world.
So you see... anyone can do it.
You don't require any programming skills or webdesign knowledge, You don't even need a product to sell. Just bring your thoughts, knowledge, motivation and inspiration. You can talk about anything really. SBI has all the tools you need, and they teach you step by step.
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. If that's what you meant when you said easy then the answer is no.
The one point I stress in every email, whether people asked this question or not, 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!
It sounds good but I have no idea what I could make a website about.
That is absolutely not a problem. Most people who already have an idea change their mind once they start with SBI.
The first thing that SBI teaches you is how to select a profitable topic. There are no general rules. Everybody is different so this is an individual decision. SBI has brainstorming tools. You use them to generate ideas and to analyse them. You'll see if there is enough interest in a topic, how much competition there is, and if there is money to be made.
To choose a topic for a website is the most important step in the whole process, so you shouldn't do it without SBI anyway. Don't know what to make your site about? Good!
There are no catches whatsoever either. Solo Build It includes everything you need. There are no hidden costs. You can't go wrong by trying it out. The way I see it you have everything to win and nothing to lose.
Solo Build It also now offers a monthly subscription as well so my suggestion is, if you are serious about building a sizable income stream for yourself, get the yearly subscription. It works out cheaper, and if you don't like it you can easily get all your money back. I see no point in getting the monthly option, but apparently it is very popular.
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 Solo Build It. You will be guided through the whole process. Anybody with a brain who's 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.
The only way to know is to try!
All the best,
