What is the cost of using SBI?

The Course cost includes the SBI cost for one year.

The SBI licence lasts for one year from the date of the Course beginning.
This cost of $299 USD is built into the course cost.

The ONLY future ongoing cost is $299 USD per year. Most important, there are no other costs.

Having used SBI since 2003, it is expected that a business, (using the knowledge from this Course and using SBI) should easily recoup this "cost" through the business income/profits that can be generated. Also depending on your tax advice, the fee could be tax deductible.

What is the COST of not using SBI?

The equivalent question is What are the traditional costs of creating an Internet business?

SBI is an investment in multiple integrated systems that removes the costs of a traditional Internet business. It is difficult to quantify, but as a list these costs can include:

Your time:

the biggest cost and includes your time to learn how to build an Internet business, to link together and maintain technologies to operate an Internet business, to manually research your idea, to learn the programming language used on the Internet or the tools to write this language.
Your time also has an "opportunity cost" - that's the cost of using your time to do something else, eg researching a new tool when you could be growing your business.

What value do you place on your time per hour?

Technical costs:

Webhosting costs each year, cost of Tools (usually annually) to automate a business, Tools to publish to the Internet, Newsletter subscriptions to maintain knowledge of Internet changes.

SBI enables anyone to create an Internet business and SAVES you time (most important) and unnecessary costs.

Using SBI covers all the traditional costs (see above) of creating and maintaining an Internet business for just $299 USD. SBI also regularly invents new systems and tools not found anywhere else in response to the feedback from the 30,000 business owners using SBI and in response to say the way Google or Yahoo changes its business model and how it works with you.

The Video by Kim from (last video on the main page) captures this very well in his video titled "Zero-Zero-Zero-Zero, An Entrepreneur's Dream Come True". Kim has had a number of traditional 'bricks and mortar' businesses in the past.

At $299 USD what is the REAL value of SBI?

The true value is much higher than $299 USD. In fact it is very hard to identify the enormous value of thousands of hours of YOUR time saved through researching, building and maintenance.

Anyway, here is an attempt to determine the real value of SBI.

SiteSell/Solo Build It!'s development highlights last year

Last Year Really Was Special...

EXTRACT from a recent Newsletter by Ken Evoy, CEO Sitesell

This is indeed a time for reflection! And maybe a little pat on the back to everyone.

Here's a quick review of SiteSell/Solo Build It!'s 2007 highlights. I could go on and on for pages and pages with all the details and smaller day-to-day stuff that happens all the time. But let's keep ourselves awake with the big stuff! ;-)

Solo Build It! Improvements

1) Sitemaps XML submissions/pinging -- several advances
2) Action Guide and special module videos -- a whole bunch
3) TNT and other HQs -- a ton of great new articles
4) Graphic Manager launch
5) Many new and updated searches in Search It!
6) Find It! integrated, now heavily used
7) Fav It! launched
8) Solo Build It! Checklist launched
9) Many updates of various modules
10) Monetization HQ launched
11) Forums restructured
12) Priority Build It! overhauled and relaunched
13) Analyze It! relaunched
14) Brainstorm It! V2 launched, V2.2 coming, and V3
(mind-blowing) is next
15) Infin It! nears launch (this will be big)

These additions really added a lot of new functionality to Solo Build It!. Naturally, there must have been a huge price increase, right?

Nope... same old $299 USD. What was a great deal years ago just keeps getting better and better.

The more complicated the Web gets, the more difficult technology becomes, the more impossible SEO becomes, the better SBIers do! For the same price. No doubt about it...

If you have not read it above, here is an attempt to work out the
real value of Solo Build It.
