So you want to know more about SBI... well, you'll have to read about the fond-farewell.com team story as well:
We were a few people who felt we had something to offer the world (our opinions!), and having spent time in seasonal jobs, we wanted to create something that was a little more permanent.
We decided a website was the way to go, but had NO website experience other than surfing the net!
While researching how to make our website happen, we found out that a good quality website can at least make money just from advertising, without even selling anything... amazing! (Yes, we were all born before the eighties).
So we could be off chasing a new adventure, and the website could be consistently generating passive income.
As our incomes were always cyclical, we thought that it couldn't hurt to try this out. It took at long time for us to finally decide on SBI (a whole bunch of us reaching an agreement is no small thing).
The clincher was that SBI provided coaching on both online business research and actual website-building. We were happy to risk an initial US$299 outlay (shared between us) should it turn out to be a wrong decision.
It was a fantastic learning curve... All we started with was a passion for our subject (farewells!), a desire to help people, and now we get paid for it.
Right now, the site makes enough to cover the annual subscription fee 15 times over, per year.
Even more, we're loving the fact that we help so many people with their farewell dilemmas (between 30,000-50,0000 visitors a month and growing).
In the beginning, we asked ourselves "Would SBI really work? Can we trust this product?"
We also get visitors to this site asking us the same thing. Well, 2 years after deciding to use SBI, this is our answer:
Mind you, if you do want a successful website, no matter which company you choose to use (free or paid), you need to ask yourself the following questions to weigh your odds of success:
Basically if you love a certain topic, know a lot about it (or are willing to learn more about it), and have enough
to share it, you can create a wonderful and successful website.
The most common response we get to that is:
"Of course! If I'm persistent and passionate and work hard, I will be successful. Why should I choose SBI?"
Our answer is simply that there are millions of websites out there (count 'em!), competing for traffic and money.
SBI! gives you the edge to stand out from the rest, from the start, helping you make smart decisions about the website or online business you want to create.
So you see, what started for us as a desire to help people turned into THIS website!!
If it wasn't for SBI we would probably be arguing over "what to do next", but with the guidance we've received, we're confident that we're moving in the right direction.

and whatever you decide; whether website or not, SBI! or not,
good luck and to your success!
