How I Built This Site
New Page 1
Hi and welcome to my “How I did it” page or About SBI,
I am assuming that since you are at this page you at least
have a little curiosity about how you could build and make some money with a web
site , or how I have done it.
I started this web site because I wanted to give back to
people some of the help and encouragement I have received over the years. I want
to share with you how I built this site and let you know how simple it is. It
is simple but it is still hard work. Anything in life that has real value is
going to require work; this is not a get-rich-quick scheme. However, when you
work at what you love, it doesn’t seem like real work.
This site has provided a way for me to talk about the
things I love and the things that have meaning for me. It has provided a way for
me to touch lives and to be touched by others. Readers have encouraged me and
shared their heart with me. I am deeply honored to be able to share in the hurts
and pain of many of the readers of the material on this site, and hopefully, to
pay back the encouragement I have received in life from my wife and others.
The site has grown way beyond my expectations. As I
mentioned on the “About Me” page there are a huge number of visitors each month
on this web site and I have a very large subscription base for The REMNANT
E-zine. Also, tens of thousands of pages are read here each month and increasing
all the time.
I didn’t start off with this web site or this success
though, so I want to give you some of the same encouragement I have
been given and let you know how I did it.
At first, I wanted a web site to sell the book I had
written about my experiences in helping to transform communities and in working
as a minister in a men’s prison that was transformed.
I paid a lot of money to have a web site built. It was
beautiful! It had a lot of neat stuff. The only problem with it there were
no visitors coming to the site. Ever try selling a book, or
anything for that matter, without having any customers? Not a profitable
The web site was expensive for me to have built and there
was an expensive monthly bill that had to be paid each month to keep the site.
I didn’t have that kind of money to throw around.
The site was complicated and I just didn’t know what to do
with it or how to write HTML code or anything else about it. The site had a so
called “Control Panel” where I could make changes or add to the site. I just
didn’t understand all the “teckie” stuff to be able to make proper use of the
site or the control panel – way too complicated for me.
Each year I hoped the visitors would come to the site and I
did all that I knew how to do to make that happen. I just didn’t have the tools
or know-how to attract visitors to the site, and I didn’t understand or know how
to use the tools provided.
The past has taught me to learn from my mistakes, and if
what I have learned can help just one person I will be grateful, so I desire to
pass on to you what I have learned.
I don’t know what the Lord has placed in you, but I do know
that at one time you had hopes and dreams and now you likely have some needs
that are predominate in your thoughts. I expect you visited this site on
spiritual warfare because you were looking for some information to help meet
some of your needs.
I want to be able to give to you some of what I have
received to maybe help restore your hope and dreams; or to encourage you.
You may have a need for some extra income – doesn’t
everybody? Why not do what your passion is? Let me ask you “What would
you do in this life if you knew there were absolutely no restrictions?” Really
give that some serious consideration! Because all you have to do is: “DO IT!”
Be encouraged; it’s a “mind-set” and it really is that simple! Sure, you may
have to re-educate yourself some, but that is a good thing!
Maybe you’ve lived a full life, and now wonder what it
was all about. Ever feel like that? Why not follow the dreams and passions
the Lord has placed in you? I don’t care how old or young you are; it is not too
late for you!
Why not sit down and ask yourself just what those old,
forgotten dreams are - those things the Lord placed in you many years ago and
you just set aside? – Why not do that? Write them out. It will give you hope
and it is GREAT FUN. It will infuse life into you no matter where you
are on life’s journey!
You may be looking for a job that would allow you to
quit your present 8-5 job. Or you may just be looking for something that
will put a spark in your life – who can’t use that?
Maybe you want to work for yourself, or work at home.
Or maybe, the difficult days we are living in today are telling
you in your gut that it is time to make sure you can take care of
yourself and your family. We just don’t know what the days ahead hold in this
I believe God has a ministry and work for all of us and
when we truly seek Him with all our heart and ask Him to reveal His will for us
I believe He does just that. It has been true in my own life and in a number of
other people I know.
I believe God led me, how-be-it indirectly, to this great
resource. I don’t think it is for everybody but I know it can help some.
And I know that if you just allow yourself to IMAGINE the potential for you, you
just may be able to imagine an exciting new future of possibilities for you.
My goal now is to share with you this resource that has
worked for me, and possibly, it may be just what the doctor ordered for you to
restore what God has placed in you.
After I lost a great deal of money and time on my old web
site I ran across Site Build It (SBI). This is the resource that has
benefited me so greatly and the web master for this Practical Spiritual Warfare
This SBI resource could be a blessing from God for some of
you who have come to this site searching for information. It just might help you
with a solution to some of the questions you have asked yourself or to some of
the questions I asked you above.
Whether you consider this SBI resource or not, at least
take time to ponder some of the questions above, and consider some solutions for
The information about SBI could also become vitally
important to you if you are at all considering how difficult the times are in
which we live. Jobs and retirement incomes could get drastically reduced in
these uncertain times. That is a scary thought!
I, for one, intend to be independent and take care of my
family and myself.
So, let me tell you what I have learned about SBI from
experience and about what I have come to love and enjoy, as well as what I have
come to look forward to in making good money. This effort has not been work, but
has become a real joy for me and is providing me some necessary security. That
is why I want to share with you about Site Build It (SBI), so you can have
the same security, fulfillment and enjoyment if you choose.
The process of SBI is simplified to such a degree that
success (i.e., measured in profits or visitors, not the mere presence of a Web
site) is achievable even for a beginner. For an experienced person,
achieving success is even smoother. SBI! really does change lives.
Yes, there are easier ways to build a Web site; I know that
from experience. However, success or online profits require more than just
having a collection of Web pages. SBI! includes all the tools and a proven
process required to build a long-term, profitable e-business or web presence
and bring visitors. This was a hard and expensive lesson I learned.
SBI! removed the technical barriers allowing me to keep my
attention on building my information to help people. It can help you do the same
with an information site like mine or with a business site. Many functions are
completely automated. You don't need to know anything upfront about building a
Web site in order to succeed. The tedious, "under-the-hood" stuff is handled
automatically so you can focus on other important business-building activities.
The Action Guide presents a step-by-step process,
presented in both written and video formats. All you have to do is follow it.
Really! The most successful SBI! owners say "all they did was follow the Guide."
They don't get sidetracked, or have to guess at what to do next. SBI!'s guided
approach helps you reach your goals. I have followed the guide step by step and
it is clear and simple and has made building this web site easy and, most of
all, fun for me.
SBI! has unlimited Customer Support. SBI! owners
often call it the best they've ever experienced. And the SBI! Forums complete
the picture. They are the most friendly, help-and-be-helped set of e-business
forums in the world. I use both the support and forums to get help whenever I
need it, but mostly to get some advice from more experienced users.
Again, as I learned the hard way, too many non-SBI! sites
start without profits, or without your ultimate goal, being "built into" the
process from DAY 1. It all begins with the right process. Their
PREsell =>Monetize process is the underlying, logical and powerful
process that capitalizes upon the fundamental realities of how people use the
Web. The C =>T =>P =>M put me on a solid, profitable business foundation, and it
didn’t matter if I decided to build a personal business or to supply
information. My choice, at the time, was to provide information. However, I am
now in the process of monetizing the site to make some money.
The process for monetizing the site is simple – BUT IT IS
NOT A GET-RICH-QUICK DEAL! It takes work, just like anything of value.
PREselling is a concept "invented" by SiteSell (the
name of the company), and the “P” part of the C=>T=>P=>M process. The concept is
simple. As a small business person or an information provider, you do not have a
brand name that is known and trusted. So you have to build that before you can
monetize. Seems obvious, right? But, few people do it, or they don't do it
right. That is where the help in the Action Guide comes in; it is taking me by
the hand and going step by step again.
Let me tell you, this company, SiteSell is FANTASTIC in
comparison to what else is out there! I have never seen anything like it in all
my years. Like I said, I knew nothing about web sites or what made them work or
how to get visitors, but SBI has walked me through everything. Other sites I
have looked at, or the one I had, didn’t do this for me..
Their tools are unbelievable!
They have unbelievable tools. I won’t even list them
because there are too many. Many of them work in the background without you
having to do anything; and the others are completely explained and demonstrated
so that even I can use them.
This means I can focus on creating content instead of
worrying about getting all the technical details right. Site Build It! will even
suggest new topics I should write about to increase my traffic, based on its
analysis of my current search traffic patterns.
Speaking of traffic, or visitors to the site, 35% of all
SBI web sites rank in the top 1% of all sites in the world, 53% of SBI sites
rank in the top 2% of all web sites in the world and 62% of SBI sites rank in
the top 3% of all sites in the world. Now that is something to write home about!
So what about my site, Practical Spiritual Warfare? Well, I
don’t want to brag, but we are in the top 1% of all web sites in the world
and there are well over 100 million! Let me tell you, I didn’t do it, it was
SBI! When it was up to me with my first site I didn’t get any visitors.
SBI has saved me time and money.
SBI has helped me stay focused and not get side tracked
with all the information out there.
SBI has given me this exceptional success rate for my site
- not me or what I have done.
SBI has made it possible for me to earn an income.
SBI has given me the opportunity to help people and share
what God and others have given to me.
SBI has impacted my life by giving me access to the world
and made it possible for me to get feedback from many, many visitors. I receive
many encouraging and uplifting comments on the Contact Form. I also have many,
many people share their lives with me and seek help for the spiritual battles
they are in.
I don’t know all the technical stuff about web sites, but I
do know that with the help of SBI I am able to reach out to the world and I am
finding that the people the world over are reaching back to me. This is me, it
is who I am and it is great for me.
You are most likely different from me, BUT SBI understands
you and your needs and how to help you meet your needs and live out your own
I do know that with the step-by-step help of SBI they will
walk you through exploring your passion and help you determine if your passion
will bring visitors. You would be surprised at some of the crazy stuff that
brings tons of traffic. SBI shows you how to find out what will work for you.
It is amazing.
Site Build It! is basically an all-in-one solution
for building a successful online business or information site. They continue to
add new tools and refine their existing tools to keep the service
I encourage you to look into Site Build It! to see if it
makes sense for you. I recommend you start with the Site
Build It! home page. Watch the 2-1/2 minute video there, and follow
whichever links interest you.
video tour is a must -- it will really clarify everything for you.
The video tour starts out mostly motivational in tone (i.e.
benefits of working from home), but later on it dives into the details of
how the tools and monetization strategies work, using real web sites as
examples. I think you'll find it educational even if you have only a minor
interest in making money online and would rather provide information to benefit
others; or you will find it interesting if you are just curious about some
possibilities for yourself.
If what you see arouses your interest, but you're skeptical
about what to expect, you'll definitely want to look at some of the information
available. I suggest checking out some of the
success story videos submitted by their customers as well as their in-depth
case studies. These case studies are really good!

pro-rated refund for the unused portion of your subscription... and of course

I wanted to tell you about Site Build It because it has
been of such value to me personally. The state of the world is such that I want
to provide every opportunity to my readers to be ready for turbulent times. I
know, as you most likely know, that the world is not getting better. I am old
enough to be able to observe how rapidly the world has declined.
I know there are those who say things are getting better,
and the potential of man can eventually make a very good world. However, that is
just not what the Bible says. So to be on the safe side, I wanted to give to you
the opportunity to have what I have: the opportunity to follow your passion (and
to find it if you don’t know what it is) and the opportunity to earn an income
doing what you love.
Many blessings to you and may you stay in the grip of
Christ in these exciting, yet turbulent days! – Bud Ford
