In this section, you can find links to some of the webmaster resources and tools that we use or have used in the past at Quick Easy Recipes or on other sites that we manage.
Site Build It!
Site Build It is the software program we used to build Quick Easy Recipes. The main reason we chose this software was that so many of the routine/mundane chores that are needed to be done can be managed by the SBI software. This frees up your time to pursue the more creative aspects of web development. After comparing the features of many of the high-profile competitors of SBI, it really wasn't a tough decision to make.
Another reason we like SBI is that it's so easy to build a website using the software. You are led completely through each step of planning your website right from the initial brainstorming of an idea to the choosing of profitable keywords.
Search engine optimization which is something everyone is concerned about is high on the list of checks and balances as you create your site.
When finished SBI sites dominate the top of search engine listings. And all of this traffic is warm and fuzzy, FREE traffic.
After using their products for over 4 years, we believe you don't need any other tools to build an effective and profitable website. Quick Easy Recipes was one of the first websites to begin using Site Build-It when it became available in December of 2000. We now receive over a million visitors per year. What could be more proof than this that SBI works better than any of its competitors and will provide you with the results you need?
According to Alexa.com, which rates websites based on the number of visits, Quick Easy Recipes is in the top 1% of the most visited website on the Internet. Not too bad when you consider that their list of websites numbers over 16 million. See the graphic for our current rank.

Web marketers have found that it can take up to 8 or more contacts before a buyer is comfortable enough to buy something from you. If you have no way of contacting them beyond their initial visit, you could be losing up to 80% of your potential income.
The best method available for having continued contact is to use autoresponders in your marketing efforts. Autoresponders allow you to collect information about your visitors directly from your website. You can then develop and distribute sales messages to your visitors over a period of time. Autoresponders are like salespeople who work for you 24/7 without the grumbling and for very little pay.
There are many autoresponders available for under $20US. We use the autoresponders from Referralware. They provide each owner with an unlimited number of customizable autoresponders that can have as many messages as you wish.
Along with the autoresponders you also get a very powerful contact management system that allows you to categorize your contacts in various ways, enabling you to market different products to highly targeted segments of your contact list.
We have found these autoresponders to be very fast and dependable, allowing us to quickly build a large and manageable contact list. Along with the autoresponders we also received a selection of products that we can give away to help encourage our visitors to look at the products.
On top of all of the above, Referralware also supports hundreds of popular and successful programs that you can market if you desire. For under $20US per month, you can instantly have an Internet Marketing business that has been highly successful for thousands of people just like you.
