I have a book that I want to update and publish a second edition.  My issue is finding someone who can redesign/format the new edition.  I'm changing size of this book so it needs to be redesigned but I like the look now I don't want major changes to the style.    The person who did it for me originally did a fantastic job!  But for whatever reason he is apparently not in business anymore.  He is here on 48 days - Dustin Schwanger are you out there?? if you are contact me I can't get a hold of…See More

Sharon, I checked out your blog through the personal branding assignment. Very cool idea. I think you're on to something. It will be fun to see how all our ideas develop. Just keep plugging away!

Sharon, thank you so much for your kind words! I appreciate that. Since I didn't seem to be able to accept you as a friend from the previous email I received - I will add you! By the way - I love the picture of your little boy!

Sharon - Welcome and I would be happy to add you as a friend. I will go on my own page and see if I can accept your invitation as the page in my email won't let me accept. I look forward to getting to know you and wish you and your husband much continued success in your business.

Hey Sharon,
I've been using Site Build It for a year now and absolutely love it. To answer your question, yes the content is totally yours. Your site is "hosted" at SBI, so if you don't renew it each year, I imagine your site will not be "live". You will have the content you put your web pages in your computer on a text editor, but you won't have access to the actual web pages you have built unless you renew it. This would be true with any other web site host too.
Best of luck.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Because it's new! Jump on it....the water's fine! :)

And no....because you pay for the hosting on an annual basis and upfront...there are NO gotchas. Be aware though that this is a Canadian company (eh?) so your bank may charge you a few for the transaction if you use a debit card like we did.

Lemme know how it goes! I'm excited for you!

Hey Sharon- We used SBI for a year. We didn't renew it since Jay went to work for an employer.
One of the themes repeated over and over is the "Tortoise" approach. In another words...it's going to take time to build your website and build an audience. And the biggest key to this is to build CONTENT sooooo....if you don't think you'll write even a couple times of week, I wouldn't be planning on any windfalls. ;)
I think with SBI though you really can't go wrong because it is such an excellent tutorial and I learned a LOT of stuff that transfer easily.
I think they have a money back guarentee so they really remove the risk of buyer's remorse. And because I'm big on trying out things like this...I'd give it another whirl if I were in your shoes. Of course, that's just my opinion. ;)
Lemme know what you decide! t
