    SoNET gives you the capability to output many more websites with more features and capability in way less time. Nothing else comes close. This is not a CMS, so you dont get stuck being anyones admin, you setup your install, it runs automatically, people serve themselves and you dont have to do anything besides market the business. You cant do this with a CMS like Wordpress or Drupal. I have tried them all and they all end up with the webmaster overloaded with administration work. Thats the main reason why most webmasters dont make good money anymore, they are too busy to sell because they are making changes for users.

    Selling the first 10 Websites using the free version of SWE - got my copy from Download (dotcom)back when version 3 came with 25 sites and I sold those door to door. Now the free version has no limits anymore so I am going to tell you exactly how to sell just like I did. FIRST, stick to the WebPI install, saves time and energy. SECOND, you do NOT need a domain name as you can point your customers domain name to the IP/sitename using the A RECORD on the customers DNS. A domain name does help but if you want to do this for completely free, then you dont need one yet. THIRD, select your customer first and make them a website before you even try to sell it to them. I mean that you need to walk into the business with their new website already completed. They will be impressed now you simply negotiate a price ($99 dollars always works). Dont be greedy and if they cant pay all at once offer then a monthly payment (thats why SoNET comes with that feature ;) - It is nearly always that simple. If the business does not want to buy the site, then simply find another business just like that one and swap out the title and images if applicable. You see what is going on? You have all the flexibility, you dont have to haggle with unreasonable people anymore, you simply pass them up and sell to their competition. This is THE NUMBER ONE BENEFIT of SWE in comparison to being a regular Webmaster. You do not have to kiss anybody's butt or bend over backwards convincing illogical people that they need a Website for their business. You simply move on to someone you CAN help. BAM, done. This technique works.

    If you want more sites you need ver.3. It comes with the 25 sites, but they are less powerful than ver.4 - so you can sell up to that amount instead of just the 10 from the new version. easy way to make money.

    RamK - Okay so I tried exactly as you said in your post and guess what? I talked to a fitness trainer at my gym and he wanted a website so I took some photo's of him with my phone and cam back with a pre-fab example the next day. He said he would trade me for two months free training, so I took it. I need the training and didnt have the money and now he is training me for free AND..he gave me a referal at the same gym, so this new person will pay $299 for her new site. Your post was awesome. Thanks. -Jeremy W.

    Good post RamK, I have a similar story. I used to sell websites door to door where I live and that worked well up until about 2010 then it started getting really slow. I downloaded the 3.0 version that used to come with 25 sites and started selling them to kids sporting teams as secure private sites. That is when I started making decent money. It turns out that parents DO NOT want the kids on FB or other sites because it is not safe. The coaches much preffer having a site that they control and that no outsiders can log into. So if you have not tried selling sites to small groups, I really suggest you try it. It is working really well for me and I have been a SWE user since 2008 ver 2.0.

    The Azure Marketplace has the easiest way to install SWE. They have it available as a Web App when you sign up, so you simply login and click one button, then wait about 1 minute...and its done and ready to point your domain.

    Tim, I agree that the Azure install is the best and lets not skip that it is the CHEAPEST = FREE. I made money on my first sale, thanks iRadek.
