Site Build It Manual
Site Build It Manual: The Action Guide Homepage
The Site Build It Manual is called the Action Guide. It works on a simple 10-Day system (as in steps, not literal 24 hour periods) that guides you through the general internet marketing world, has dedicated how-to mini-guides on using specific SBI tools such as Form Build It and MailOut Manager, as well as providing suggestions and grounds for brainstorming new ideas.
The Action Guide comes available in both written and video form. The videos come with two voice-overs; a cool American female voice and a rather strange male voice – it’s hard to describe... try it and you’ll see what I mean.
From the start, the Action Guide is designed for web novices – they acknowledge this at the beginning. Site Build It is aimed at a very broad audience, many who aren’t web savvy. However simple or slow it can come across, it’s important to stick through it.
The written guide may well be more suitable for the ‘net-savvy’ since you can scan read through the guides and take onboard what is new and relevant to you - although the video mini-guides to specific SBI tools are a must!

In Day 3, you look at further more comprehensive keyword brainstorming of your sites main topic. You then cherry pick selections of keywords to “map-out” how your site will work, in a simple 3-tier format. You end the day with an arsenal of powerful keywords, and an idea of how you’re going to use them.
