My Story - Why and How I built a

Web Site on Putting.


My story begins in 2008 after we moved to a smaller house. The down-sizing meant that there was now no room to set up a Putting Studio.

Putting Lesson

Putting Lesson

In our old house I had a fully equipped setup. There I was able to indulge my Passion for golf by helping fellow golfers with their Putting Problems. It was rewarding to see their improvement as they took the information on board.

The new house ended the lessons. However, rather than let my knowledge, experience and ongoing research on Putting go to waste, I decided to commit my thoughts and ideas to paper.

At first I imagined a Book, but a book is not dynamic in the sense that it is difficult to update regularly. Next I thought of a Blog, but decided in the end to build a Web Site as a more permanent source of information.

Belling The Cat

... Have you heard the tale of the mice and the troublesome cat? The mice were bothered by the cat creeping up on them unawares. They came up with the fine idea that a bell around the cat's neck would alert them in time.

Amid the self-congratulations of finding such an elegant solution to their problem, a timid mouse raised the awkward question of how they exactly were going to bell the cat ...

The Search Begins

To build a web site is a good way to get your message out, but you face the same dilemma as the mice - How do you do it?

Being new to the Internet and Web Site world and without any programming skills I began to look around for a way forward.

My first inclination was to find someone who could build the web site for me. I soon found out that this was both expensive and inconvenient. When you want to change or correct something, you are dependent on another person's technical knowledge and timetable.

As I wanted to update the web site regularly I had to be independent, capable of editing and maintaining the information myself.

The next few months of fact finding were spent reading books, as well as articles on the internet. It was a maze of HTML and technical stuff - a mass of noise and confusion.

Continuing the search I looked into attending classes, but there were none that went beyond a basic introduction.



Enter Solo Build It

Fortunately I managed to side-step the fly-by-night companies and the instant gratification of "A site up in 24 hours" urge. My search for the perfect answer eventually hit pay dirt when it turned up Solo Build It (SBI).

Here was a reputable company with a proven easy-to-use system and sound track record of customer satisfaction.

For a person such as me without any technical savvy, it combined the instruction of how to build and maintain a web site with the essential web-hosting service at a fraction of the cost that I had been quoted by web designers, web masters, and web hosts.

Another huge plus factor was that I didn't have to buy or learn any web-building software such as DreamWeaver or FrontPage since SBI's block-by-block building process took care of all the technical details. I could just write about Putting.

With their all-in-one approach they would set up my domain name, provide a choice of design templates, submit my web pages to the Search Engines, and host the site all for US$299 a year with a no-risk, 30-day money back guarantee.

The Proof

SBI is quite unique. You only have to read the Testimonials of like-minded individuals to realise that this is no ordinary company. They take you by the hand and teach you step-by-step using a Video (or written, should you prefer) Action Guide.

More importantly when you are stuck, they get back with an answer promptly. The networking effect of the Forums covers all aspects of building a successful web site.

Following SBI's advice I have learned from a zero base how to create the Look as well as Write web pages that rank high in the major Search Engines to generate Free Traffic.

I am still learning every day how to improve the Presentation and grow the site to attract more Visitors. What is the point of having something to say (or sell), and nobody knows how to find your web site?

Earning Money

If you have a passion and want to take the next step to a second income via a home-based online business, then SBI is worth investigating.

My primary motivation was to share my knowledge and research. However, as the visitor traffic builds, there are now opportunities for me to make a little cash on the side.

Even though the information on my site is completely free, SBI has shown me how to earn money with Google AdSense, Affiliate links, and Referral programs.

Maybe you have been toying with building your personal and financial independence by working from home. Find out from those who have already done it. Satisfy your desire by embarking on a new risk-free adventure.

When you read about the ventures of other SBIers, you will discover that it can also be a very profitable adventure.
