The website builder is an awesome tool if you follow the guide and start by only making minor text changes. Unfortunately, most people will jump ahead, pull our template all apart, delete important things and then be confused and frustrated with an unly non-professional site. Yes, you can make an awesome site with this tool. Yes you can change images, text, colors, layout and do incredible things, but you must learn it first, so until you do, remember…start with baby steps. Start by only changing text.
6 most important things about using the sitebuilder:
We all hate reading instructions, but please stop to take 2 minutes for these 6 steps.
1. CHANGE VERY LITTLE AT FIRST!
Remember that SITEBUILDER is software that needs to be learned. If you don’t have time to learn it by reading this guide, then do not make any drastic changes. We built ithis tool for anyone to have a professional looking site quickly. The site is prewritten and done when you receive it, so all most people do is type business information and only make MINOR changes to the text. Our special template already looks great if you don’t change it. Yes, you can change colors, pictures, site, template and everything…but do that later! Don’t do it all at once. Slow down. You’re learning a new skill. To maintain a professional looking site, change very little at first.
2. MISTAKES HAPPEN. SAVE AS YOU GO ALONG!
Like most software, you must SAVE as you go along. There’s a tool on the dashboard (a down arrow) next to the save button. It’s for saving different stages as you go along. If you’re saving as you go along, you can always revert back to an earlier version if you make a mistake.

4. IF YOU ARE A CREDIT REPAIR CLOUD USER
You’ll want to add the tools from your Credit Repair Cloud account (Log into CRC and click on “MY COMPANY>WEB SITE TOOLS”). Read this section below
5. DO NOT COPY TEXT OR IMAGES FROM ANOTHER COMPANY’S WEBSITE
That is grounds for termination. They will know and we will hear from their lawyers. Read this section to avoid embarassment.
6. IF YOUR DOMAIN IS REGISTERED AT ANOTHER COMPANY (OR YOUR EMAIL)
No worries, that’s fine, but there will be extra steps before your site can be live. Read this section below to know what to do.
Later, when you’ve learned how it works, you can do aweseome things with the sitebuilder, but for starters, remember: the template you start with is already a complete and professional site, so dont start by taking it all apart. That’s similar to taking the engine out of a car. Start by just adding your company info, then hide/remove the instructions. Then click publish. Then slowly start to change it over time as you learn how it works and learn to SAVE if you make a mistake.
