STEP-4: Build a Website

Build your website yourself using SiteBuildIt, a website builder. You can also use a web design software like CoffeeCup or Dreamweaver.  I own both but use Dreamweaver because I have advanced web building skils. CoffeeCup is good for beginnerss who have no technical background or experience. However, SiteBuildIt! (SBI) is also great for beginners. SBI! gives an Internet Business owners more than just a website builder. SBI! gives Internet Business owners everything they need to get online the right way.
