Site Build It! Review

Hi!  If you've landed on this page without seeing any other pages on my site, my name is Liz Allan and I've owned Cat Behavior Explained since 2008, when I set it up from scratch with SBI!

This Site Build It! review is a summary of my experience of building a website using SBI! and I hope it will help you if you're currently thinking about starting your own website and trying to decide who to go with.

The decision about who to go with is, in my opinion, the toughest and most important one you'll need to make.


  • Get it right, and you'll have all the tools and resources you need to build a successful online business.
  • Get it wrong, and you might as well chuck your money down the drain and spend your time in the pub instead.

Building a successful online business is hard work and anyone who claims otherwise is not telling the truth.  You'll spend many hours understanding how the process works, getting to grips with the platform, writing content and putting it all together.  

You can either spend those hours building a site on a solid, proven platform which gives you all the resources you need to succeed, or you can spend them floundering in the dark, getting nowhere at warp speed.  I know which option I'd go for :)

Why I Chose SBI!

I Googled.  For what felt like forever.

I read many reviews about Site Build It! and lots of other web hosting and web building services - and it was tough wading through them trying to figure out which were genuine and which were fake / scam.

I decided on SBI! in the end because:

  1. I had no previous website building experience whatsoever and SBI! was the only one to take care of all the "techy" stuff.  I realised this would free up hours and hours of my time allowing me to build content faster.  I now believe this was absolutely key to my success.

  2. People already using SBI! were enjoying great success in many different niches - and that is still absolutely true today.

  3. SBI! was (and still is) totally honest about the fact that building an online business takes real work.  For me, this was a clincher; honesty seemed to be lacking or totally absent in most places I looked.

  4. SBI! reviews were written by people who owned SBI! sites - i.e. they were not written by people who have never used the platform but write fake reviews just to earn commission.  

  5. Any web building / hosting company should be able to back up all claims they make with undeniable, undisputed proof.  SBI! was the only one that could provide it.

Why I Love SBI!

  • It over-delivers massively.  The $299 per year fee is waaaaay less than you'd pay if you needed to source all the components separately.  And the help and support is the best I've ever come across.

  • It's allowed me to build a successful online business which gives me a great income boost and lets me indulge my passion for felines :)  (BTW It's not a full-time business for me, but I never intended for it to be - however if I wanted to I could crank it up to become one - and it's great to have that choice).

  • It's boosted my career - I've landed both freelance and employed jobs because I could prove I understood how the web works (and you'd be surprised how many people - including lots of marketing professionals - really don't).  I never envisaged just how much the knowledge it's given me would help me at work - and it's been a truly amazing bonus.

My Recommendation

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Site Build It! to anyone who wants to build a successful online business and is prepared to put the work in to do it.  They even offer a 90 day money back guarantee, so you really have nothing to lose by giving it a go.

Buyer Beware

There are a lot of fake Site Build It! reviews on the internet at the moment, comparing it unfavourably with another web hosting / building platform called Wealthy Affiliate.  

These reviews are written by people who are being paid to sell Wealthy Affiliate.  The reviews claim that Wealthy Affiliate is better than SBI! but provide no proof to back that up.

A comprehensive study comparing SBI! with Wealthy Affiliate has clearly shown that SBI! users do much better.  You can read it here.

(BTW I'm not receiving any payment or commission for writing this review.  I've written it because SBI! is a system I truly believe in).

And Finally...

Before deciding who to go with, here are a few questions you might like to ask the different companies you're considering:

  • Are the online businesses built with them successful?  (And get them to define success - a good starting point is the amount of traffic they are getting: more traffic = more income)

  • Do the businesses appear at or near the top of search results?

  • How long have those businesses been using the platform?

  • Are there any hidden costs?

I hope you found this Site Build It! review useful.  Whoever you decide to go with, I wish you the very best of luck with your online business - and I hope you are as successful as these guys!

All the best

Liz :)
