Content 2.0 Gave Me An Interactive Forum!

by Rebecca Turner

When my SBI website World of Lucid Dreaming turned one year old, I was itching to get an interactive forum going. This would allow my readers to share their personal experiences of lucid dreams (dreams in which you consciously control your self awareness and are often just as realistic as real life).

So I added Content 2.0 invitations to my best pages and soon the reader stories came flooding in! I deleted any silly or offensive remarks and wrote additional comments and responses to the best ones. So just like a real forum, I was able to present myself as a lucid dreaming authority in our online community.

Content 2.0 is so versatile; an interactive forum is just one application. For example, I have expanded my FAQ section massively by allowing people to post their questions on lucid dreaming and giving away "free lucid dreaming advice". Another invitation asks people to share their sleep disorders (just talking about it and hearing you're not alone can be a huge relief) as well as providing their favorite cures, which presents more ideas for monetization (such as herbal remedies for a good night's sleep).

The unique thing about Content 2.0 is each submission receives its own web page so I can encourage readers to give us the whole story - not just a one-liner like a blog comment. Google sees this as an entirely new content page which I can then monetize with AdSense or affiliate partner links. Ultimately, Content 2.0 has many benefits of a traditional forum while also extensively growing World of Lucid Dreaming while I'm off developing my other websites!

Highly recommended.

Important Disclosure

This site was started by (creator of SBI!) to showcase Content 2.0.

The vast majority of pages on this site are from submissions by real SBI! owners who want to share their stories with you.

They receive no compensation of any kind from Their stories are true.

Feel free to interact with any of them with your questions or comments. Use the Comments section at the end of each story.

You will notice a common thread here... These people simply do it. They have "BAM"...

Brain (knowledge of something) Attitude (positive) Motivation" (willing to work).

BAM is the key ingredient that you must add to SBI!. To elaborate...

"Brain" does not mean "brainy." It means they have, or have developed, knowledge in a niche (perhaps from a hobby, job, other life experience).

"Attitude" means they are positive, optimistic people who work well with others (this is why the SBI! Forums are unmatched in the small e-business world).

"Motivation" means they want to build a business and take control of their lives enough to sacrifice some leisure activities.

We point this out because we do not want to falsely raise your expectations. SBI! does not deliver "automatic success." Nothing can.

Your degree of success depends on your own level of "BAM," upon how much time you devote to building your Web business, and upon following the process correctly (every successful SBIer will tell you, "Follow the Action Guide").

SBI! does deliver what it promises... your best chance at e-business success. SBI! works... if you work it.
