Welcome to the forum feo,
Never having used SBI! I'm curious...
I can see not wanting to spend that much yearly but have to ask:
- In those years did your site become successful in any way?
- Did you go from zero (no web skills/experience) to successful?
- Do you feel now that you can continue being successful without their tools?
I have a family member who uses SBI! and I never could understand him paying so much for something I had for many years at a fraction of the cost.
I have been building websites as a hobby since the mid 90's and never gave "earning" a thought. When I saw him go from no web experience at all to earning money every month in as little as a year I started wondering if I shouldn't try it myself.
