My SBI! Review

Thumbs up for Solo Build It!, an honest and effective website building company


When I joined Solo Build It!  (SBI!) back in 2007 – the internet Stone Age! – it was known as Site Build It! But even then, it was busy helping ordinary people to create their own successful online businesses. I’m one of them, and since then my website (you're looking at it) has been up and running, doing just what it promised to do. It brings me visitors and new clients for my German translation business.

If you’re interested in how I found SBI you can read more here about my story.

Why this SBI! review?

I’m writing this review in response to a call by Ken Evoy, founder of Solo Build It!, after a concerted attack in the form of fake and paid for negative SBI reviews by an aggressive online web hosting company.

What’s really sad is that, whereas there is evidence that webites built using Solo Build It! consistently draw far more visitors and enjoy better rankings than with any other website building and hosting company, this competitor is happy to take your money while not offering you the same chance of success.

In contrast, this review is entirely voluntary, and I am not being compensated for it in any way. Except for the comfort of believing in what I’m writing, and hoping it might help save someone from making an expensive mistake and wasting their time!

In a nutshell, please be aware that there are unscrupulous types out there, making plenty of get-rich-quick promises in order to get their hands on your hard-earned cash. And by unfairly doing down their competitors, rather than honest hard work.

So why am I happy to recommend SBI!?

SBI was designed to be used by anyone prepared to apply what Ken calls BAM – brains, attitude and motivation – to take their future into their own hands by setting up their own online business.

SBI provides a complete online business planning and building toolkit, offering all the support you’ll need. It's clearly written, and outlines the steps to take so that you can be sure you’re using your time effectively.

Plus there’s an active forum in which SBI owners generously offer advice and guidance to anyone with a question. Pay it forward is the philosophy, and that’s just part of what makes SBI feel rather like a large family. But don’t just take my word for it, see what other SBI-ers are saying too.

So how is SBI relevant to my German translation business?

In my case, SBI has made it possible for me to create a website written to support my own business - German translation.

The strategy is to find keywords related to German translation - i.e. to understand what information visitors are actually looking for when they use Google search - and then to write a page on that topic. And to ensure that each page is written in a clear and readable manner, and answers the question, or solves the a problem, or provides the information that the visitor is actually looking for.

In essence, the SBI philosophy is about creating value and helping others.

As ever, the more you help others, the more you yourself are helped - not just because helping people feels good, but because your visitors are happy to recommend good content to others, and that increases your readership. In my case, more visitors means more opportunities to present my translation services and win new clients.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Wishing you all the best in your own online adventure!
