About this Site -- Why I used Site Build It.
Allow me to tell you about this site...the story behind it, why I created it using Site Build It, and why that might be of interest to you.
First and foremost, I hope you are finding my site useful and informative...
"My sincerest desire is for you to have the best experience you could possibly have in Hawaii...and truly come to love Hawaii as I do."
I mentioned on my homepage that I am very passionate about Hawaii and very proud of the fact that I am from there. Could you feel that passion? I certainly hope so! That passion and pride make me want to share Hawaii's beauty with others.
But do you want to know what else I'm passionate about? Want to know what trumps Hawaii and everything else? Hint...their pictures are scattered throughout my website! Whoops, here's another one. You guessed it...My wife and kids...
I've also mentioned that my wife and I have been flight attendants for a major airline for the past eleven years. Well, for the past few years, we have been looking for a way for my wife and eventually, I as well, to stay home. This is where Site Build It comes in.
UPDATE--My wife quit her airline job to stay at home with the boys...now she REALLY works! As of November 2007, I am still working for the airlines so we can keep flying to Hawaii!
Okay, back to SBI as we call it...Site Build It is a company that offers internet solutions for a wide variety of people. I know the term "e-commerce" may seem intimidating to many people (I know it was for me), but
SBI is e-commerce for everyone
Let me explain...or before we go any further, watch this short video and really SEE what I'm talking about.
Without getting too technical,
the basic premise behind Site Build It is this
...Build a website on a topic that is near and dear to your heart...or something you are passionate about (hence, Hawaii) and OVERdeliver great content for web-surfers (I do OVERdeliver don't I?..;)).
Site Build It's built-in software optimizes your site for high rankings at the search engines. This, in turn, brings you traffic...FREE traffic...and alot of it!
With this traffic, you can choose to monetize your site in many ways. For example,
- Sell hard goods
- Sell e-goods
- Sell your services
(like my Hawaii Travel Agent services)
- Increase a small business that you already own
- Finder's and referral fees
- Google adsense
- Affiliate programs
If everything on that list does not make sense, don't worry, it didn't for me either...The point is there are many ways to make money off of a website...it is really up to you and your imagination. The possibilities are endless!
And SBI does produce results!
This site went online at the end of December 2005. Because of the holidays, let's just say it came to life in January of 2006. Everything that Ken Evoy (the president of Site Build It) said would happen, has happened. I am not going to get into all the details but here are some:
- Traffic has been increasing geometrically every month. As Ken put it, "at first, nothing...then a trickle...then the snowball!"
- My rankings have gotten better and better at the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, Live (formerly MSN), and Ask.
This process has been nothing short of mystical for me...magical even. To see something you created from scratch...that you are
about...take off and fly...Well, this has been one of the most rewarding things I have done in my life!
Now that I've created one website, I can't wait to create another one. And do you know what I am going to do after that? You guessed it...build another Site Build It site...and another. Whoa! I can hear your wheels turning now...:)

What I am trying to say is this...If you have a desire to start your own business (research shows that 70% of us do), then Site Build It offers you a great way to do it. Who is Site Build It for?
- Well, let's start with a group that includes my family...Work-at-home moms (or work-at-home dads). We all know that "work-at-home" is an unnecessary adjective for a mom.
If you are a mom, do you really do anything but work? C'mon, that is by far the toughest and most demanding job in the world. But for those moms that want to do more work...
see how these moms have used Site Build It to make an income from home.
- Infopreneurs--convert knowledge of a certain subject into a business.
- Webmasters--convert your satisfied clients into raving fans.
- Network marketers--realize infinite networking potential
- Affiliate marketers--Sell products that you like and recommend...without ever handling them!
- Service sellers--Do you already have a service that you perform?
- Hard good seller--Do you already have something to sell or would you like to sell something? Do it online...the right way.
- E-goods seller--This has huge potential...e-books, e-pictures, e-music, you name it
- Business owners--Do you already own a small business? Get a website that delivers targeted traffic.
- Auction sellers--If you are an Ebay-er, take your business to a whole new level.
- Finders and referrers--help bring business to others and get paid a commission.
You see, SBI does have something for everyone...and everyone has something to offer others...including YOU.
This is not some gimmicky get-rich-quick scheme...not even close...so don't expect it to be. It is a legitimate and rewarding way to build an online business.
It is so rewarding to be sharing something I love (Hawaii) with others.
