When it comes to online business, you need 3 main things in order to succeed:
(1) Up-to-Date Training,
(2) a Helpful Community, and
(3) Efficient Tools
Both Wealthy Affiliate and Site Build It excel in these areas. In an industry chock full of scams, helpful services like these are extremely hard to find. The best part is, you can experience both services for free/risk-free before you decide whether or not they are a good fit for you. Additionally, these services can teach you much more than any college course at a fraction of the cost.
Wealthy Affiliate Membership Levels
Wealthy Affiliate offers a Free Starter Membership that allows you to build 2 websites and watch/work through 20 tutorials. You will have limited access to certain tools, however, you can stay on as a free member as long as you’d like. See the chart below for a breakdown of the 2 membership levels at WA (Starter & Premium):
Site Build It Membership Levels
Site Build It does not offer a free, limited trial, however, they offer a 90-Day Money Back Guarantee – That’s hard to beat. 3 months is a long time to immerse yourself in your business and decide if this service will suite your needs.

The Moment of Truth: Wealthy Affiliate or Site Build It?
As you can see, Wealthy Affiliate is hard to beat. They received a perfect score and continue to dominate the online business industry. Site Build It is the next best option behind them, but are lacking in 4 important areas: It is difficult to contact the owner – they offer superb customer service, but the owner isn’t very accessible. With Wealthy Affiliate, you can private message the owners, see them interact in chat, and receive 1-on-1 coaching if necessary. Speaking of live chat, this is not offered within the Site Build It platform either. The last 2 criteria they failed to meet I will give some leeway on: SBI! does not offer any free websites, training (besides the Affiliate Masters Course mentioned above), tools, etc, however, they offer an attractive “risk-free” trial. You have to pay initially, but at any point within the first 90 days you can request a full refund if you are unhappy. Even with these last 2 items discounted, Wealthy Affiliate takes the cake.
So Which One is it Going to Be? WA or SBI!
