The Power and Review of SBI - Site Build It (SiteSell)

The Power and Review of SBI - Site Build It (SiteSell)

Here is a SBI review, and a quick glance at the growth and media success of www.all-about-houseboats.com since its start in the competitive online world.

If you're interested in a SBI review, or better yet a review of Site Build It potential, let's take a moment and look at www.all-about-houseboats.com achievements with focused content, attracting visitors, traffic growth, and media attention.


The elements in building a successful website.

The chances of building a successful site amongst the 275 million websites already on the web are slim, unless you are a seasoned webmaster, with many skills and talents in SEO or in keyword traffic building.

You likely have many passions, hobbies, and interests, and would like to build a successful online business, yet you aren't into html coding, web design, or a technical SEO guru?

That's where I made my best business decision, and chose Site Sell, and their Site Build It package to start my online website story.

I was hesitant because of the price, but quickly realized that it included all the tools, hosting, and a wealth of information. The Action Guide, BrainStorm it, and the Master Keyword List are all invaluable tools in creating and building the Site BluePrint that is needed to build a successful website.

Needless to say, I'm now very happy that I chose SBI (Site Build It) to guide me online. The following information below shows some of the successes that www.all-about-houseboats.com has achieved.

Thank you SBI, and all my precious readers and visitors for all your support, I couldn't and wouldn't be here without YOU!

Below are some of the achievements and proud moments.

The ultimate HOW to BUY a HOUSEBOAT ebook arrives
by: IAN from all-about-houseboats.com

After two years work the ultimate "Houseboat Buying Guide" was born. The How to Buy a Houseboat ebook is now available for all our 2,000 daily website visitors.

The ebook was a lifetime project that assembles a lifetime of boat-buying experience into a simple to read guide for houseboat buyers.

The response from the ebook buyers has been fantastic as the testimonials show that everyone wants to learn how to "not get taken" and "how to save money" while purchasing that dream-boat. The ebook covers all the who, what, where, when, and how to do it all.

Here's a 20 Chapter summary of the ultimate Houseboat Buying guide.

by: IAN from all-about-houseboats.com

Another milestone happened in 2015 when we converted to a newer, more modern "responsive" website template that made us completely "mobile-friendly".

This mobile friendly template allows the website to be properly displayed for our tablet & especially smartphone visitors. As the mobile traffic is now representing @ 30% of the site's traffic (and only growing year per year) this is a major advancement to meet our visitor's needs.

Waterfront Houseboat article on MSN.com
by: IAN from www.all-about-houseboats.com

Because of the Bankrate.com article, MSN put the article on their front homepage for a day. The traffic generated from the frontpage exposure alone was @ 225,000 page hits, and resulted in @ 42,000 unique visitors in one day :)

This kind of traffic didn't even crash the SBI servers, just proof at the quality of the Site Build It package.

A video recommendation from Boaters TV show.
by: IAN from www.all-about-houseboats.com

Another one of our successes was when we received a recommendation from Boaters TV during their weekly TV show.

The host Julie did a segment called "Julie's got a Crush on Houseboats" and our site was on the list to go to for more information.



It's a very well done short video segment showing houseboats in general.
