Ideas, hobbies, passion and knowledge... your business starts with what you know and love.
You have the desire and a lifetime of experiences. In order to turn them into an online business, you need the right guidance and tools. SBI! was built for this.
People often forget that building an online business requires proper research and planning — that somehow these basic principles do not apply online. In fact, the majority of the industry tries to convince you of it!
Consider the countless ads about how you can just put up a website (or blog), and how people are going to magically come to your site. Not true. This is why most folks who are lured by all the "start a business in under 10 mins" ads do not succeed.
You wouldn't rent a storefront before doing the market research to ensure you'll have the best chance for success. So why would you register a domain name and start building a website before knowing if enough people are looking for your information?
Successful Solo Build It! members describe the SBI! Action Guide as "the equivalent of getting your MBA online." When you see all that's covered in the learn-as-you-go Action Guide, you'll likely find that statement to be accurate.
The Solo Build It! Action Guide pulls all the important business-building information you need into one place. It leads you through the C T P M! process (discussed below) that's been proven to work by thousands of successful members.
As you make your way through the Action Guide, you'll develop a hands-on understanding of online business and how it really works. You'll...
Discovering your niche, then refining it to make sure that it fits your goal, is the key to any successful and sustainable business. This is where the Solo Build It! process starts.
Following the Action Guide, you will begin by using our exclusive Brainstorm It! module — the world's first smart brainstorming tool. Brainstorm It! lets you find potential Site Concepts for profitable niches for your new online business, then it helps you choose and perfect the best niche to achieve your goal.
If you only have a general idea of your niche, or even if you have no clear idea, Brainstorm It! will help you explore until you know. Pick the one that's right for you (i.e., according to your passion, knowledge, available time, and intended monetization options). This puts you ahead of 90% of all online content creators.
Step-by-step, the Action Guide and Brainstorm It! will ensure that your idea is both something that works for you, and is in-demand.
With your niche selected, you can now move confidently through the business-building process.
Solo Build It! uses a process that's been proven by thousands of successful online business owners over the last 20+ years. Here's how it works...
People search for information and solutions using keywords. Searching on Google, social media, news aggregators (Reddit), Q&A sites (Quora) and visual platforms (Pinterest), they're looking for an endless variety of knowledge and guidance.
You have information others want. Share it with them! How? Hone in on your knowledge and convert it into Content that people will find as they search.
Your Content gets found (in search) or discovered (on social media). It attracts free, interested visitors. These visitors form your Traffic — folks who visit pages you've written on the very topic they want to know more about.
Visitors to your website develop trust and confidence in you as you share what they need to know — relevant, original, topical information. We call this Preselling — think of it as building your "brand of one."
As you draw people in with your well written, informative niche content, they'll not only follow you and return for additional content, they will increasingly be more open to clicking on ads, following your recommendations, or buying your products/services.
Now that your Content is getting a high volume of people to your site (Traffic), and you begin building their trust (Presell), it's time to convert their visits into income (Monetize). This is known as "monetizing" — it's only effective once you have successfully built "C T P."
C T P is the motor that drives M. Going for the money too soon — while tempting — is where you'll either make it or you won't. The "M" is at the end for good reason.
Once you have your own Presold traffic, you're in control. The next step is to execute a diversified set of income-generating options that maximize income, growth and stability.
Start at the beginning — Content. Don't start at the end — Monetization.
So many people spend time and energy setting up a shopping cart and a merchant account or some other way of "making money." That's putting the (shopping) cart before the horse (Presold traffic).
Monetization comes last... it's the final result of doing everything else in the C T P process correctly.
Deliver Content, which builds Traffic, which is Presold. Then, you're ready to Monetize.
