This The Honest Way blog is getting its second post in a month. What’s going on here? I’ll tell you.
I love it when someone writes a review of a product or service that is hard hitting and honest, then all the affiliates and noob hangers on of said product come out in force to try to bully the writer with their side of the story, especially when they are only virtually spouting the company line.
Lissie called out Site Build It as a scam at her article that you can read here: Site Build It Scam along with all the troll comments from the so-called experts.
Ok, I’m not reviewing Site Build It here, nor am I saying whether it is a scam or not – plenty of people are already doing a great job of it without me adding fuel to the fire. I’m just raising awareness that if you take on a company like this with your own opinion of what it is, which in a free world is anyone’s prerogative, you should expect some defending to be done of that company, but what you should not expect is to be bullied and harassed by a bunch of nasty, ill-informed noobs.
So Lissie gets my full support here and I have a feeling that many other established marketers who do know what they are doing will likewise stand behind her and lend their support.
Incidentally, Vic has made one of his trademark videos with some real home truths about the alleged expertise of one of those know-it-all commenters here: Site Build It Noobs Are Funny. Hey Vic, hope you don’t mind the anchor to try outrank them for their own KW…
Anyway, good on ya Lissie!
Update: Looks like the heavyweights are all wading in now. Griz just posted this additional flame fanning post here: Site Build it – Don’t Buy It. So if you were actually contemplating spending $300 of your hard earned cash on a per year basis for a website that you could put together and host yourself for considerably less – after reading all this and all the additional info from the real experts (not the wannabe’s from the SBI forum) I’m willing to bet you won’t want anyone to know you were even considering signing up for Site Build It now!
