When I first heard the name “ SiteBuildIt ” (SBI), I was on a guy's website who builds sites for a living, and I was touring around the internet looking for a website building process that was workable for a newbie (and that would not involve a huge amount of cash). He had several recommendations on his list for software or building processes, and I clicked on them all to check them out.
He said SBI was good for website-building newbies like me because it had two options – one for those who are comfortable with HTML and the like, and an option for those who just thought “what?” when I said HTML. I was choice #2.
I wanted to build a site, and probably more than one, that did not require me to spend the better part of a year learning about HTML editors. I wanted to focus on the business part of the site, not worrying about my coding skills.
Two things you should know about me at this point – I research EVERYTHING, and I am a skeptic. I like facts, and I like proof that I can see. Door-to-door salespeople hate me.
I am also what I would consider frugal with money (some
would say “cheap"!).
So there I am, researching website building. I read many pages, many forums, many articles. Over a three month period I looked at A Lot of options – from do it yourself type options to complete site-building companies.
I bookmarked them if I found them interesting. At the end of three months I had a decent list of stuff to consider.
The one I kept coming back to was SiteBuildIt.
Why that one?
