better than a running blog | build your own best website!

running blogStarting a website could be the perfect way to share your passion with world!

Many of our readers have considered starting their own running blog.

Either that, or they already have one.

Usually, runners (or anyone with a hobby or passion) move to create an online presence for one or a few of several possible reasons.

Here are just a few of those reasons:

  • To create a community like the one that they're used to in person (similar to a running club)

  • To help in keeping themselves accountable by announcing their running goals publicly
  • To share their excitement about the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of running

  • To make money (through providing products and/or services, displaying ads, promoting affiliate programs, etc.)

How I Built My Running Website

website

The very first time I created a business website was in 2005.

I was way outside of my comfort zone, but that is what I enjoyed, even then.

At that point in time, I was fully immersed in fitness, as a Personal Trainer and as a Fitness Manager.

I knew that I wanted to be able to help even more people than I was able to in my day-to-day routine.

Comfortable with technology, I though about trying Wordpress and some of the other platforms for blogging.

None of them seemed to have the features that I found with SiteSell.

What is SoloBuildIt!? What is SiteSell?

So, what is SoloBuildIt!, or SiteSell? Watch the video just below for your introduction.

I Wasn't Sure I Could Build a Business Website (Running Blog or Otherwise)

I was nervous about the time it would take to learn a software that was completely new to me.

What if I screwed up? What if it was too advanced?

It could have been, but the potential for lasting success, and that it was an all-in-one solution drew me in.

What do I mean by all-in-one?

Rather than try to integrate solutions for all the items involved in building a business website, everything was combined for me.

I did not have to worry about hosting a website, email account access, HTML coding, newsletter integration, or anything remotely related to any of those.

Instead of trying to figure out how to fit a square peg into a round hole, those concerns had already been met.

Still, I needed proof. That's why the SBI! Case Studies were so helpful to me.

Results Were (and Are) Important to Me

As a former Personal Trainer, the results of my clients were always important to me.

And so, the results and success of others who had tried SBI! were important to me, as well.

I spent a long time perusing the SBI! Results Page to see what other entrepreneurs and small business owners had experienced.

With so many people seeing good results in so many different niches, I was positive that I could do the same.

Here are just a few of the categories that have been successful for "SBI!ers."

  • Entertainment
  • Finance & Investing
  • Food & Cooking
  • Travel
  • Miscellaneous
  • Hobbies
  • Sports & Fitness
  • Health & Medicine
  • Self-Help
  • Misc. Business

What About Traffic?

This specific site is still very young (started in July 2019). Our plan is that all of our traffic is a result of the powerful tools and strategies of SoloBuildIt!, and those who visit by way of our social media pages, without paying for any visitors.

Since we know it is on your mind (as it was ours), here's a look at our monthly traffic stats (a feature included within SBI!) every so often, so you can see how things are progressing:

solobuildit traffic statistics

In each of our first 4 months, we'd averaged about 20 new pages per month.

That is exclusive of the reader-submitted articles, which totaled about 40 total articles over the whole 4 months.

We'd done some writing (original, not duplicate content) for other websites as a means of generating some inbound links.

And, most of our initial traffic resulted from our social media presence. With that, Facebook has been our strongest generator of traffic, with Twitter providing the second most.

Our continued goal is to write more content each week (though, our production does slow a little bit while we are in semester in the Southern New Hampshire University MBA program).

Page views have grown, as have the number of daily visits and daily visitors. Though, the amount of traffic experience currently would not support a significant income via ads or affiliate links.

A medium to long-term goal is to keep writing to get to 300 self-contributed pages, with reader-contributed articles being the gravy to our mashed potatoes.

There is a reason that in 2019, when given the option of so many online resources, I chose SBI! to create something better than a running blog, just as I did in 2005, when I was first building my online presence.
