Content 2.0 Is A Great Resource for Writing eBooks

by Sue Spire

Soon after I launched my web site in Sept, 2006, emails started arriving asking for help with various problems my visitors were having with their stained glass work. I started thinking, "If one person is having a problem, there must be more people with the same problem... how can I share the questions and answers with all of my visitors?" A year later Content 2.0 solved my problem.

As soon as C2 became available it was on my web site. There are seven active invitations, and to date there's a total of 557 submissions. That's 4 times as many C2 pages as the 123 pages I wrote for my site. Does that make building my web site easier? You bet!

My question and answer pages get the most submissions, but the photo gallery is a favorite and draws many visitors. It's a page where my visitors can submit photos of their work. I put those photos on a slide show that runs across the top of the page. If I happen to forget to put a photo in the slide show I get an email from the person that submitted the photo asking where it is. Those photo submitters really feel ownership of "their" pages!

I'm now using my C2 pages for material to write FAQ eBooks. The eBooks are pretty easy to write, especially since I don't have to come up with much more to say than what has already been written on those C2 pages. I have 2 FAQ eBooks for sale right now with more to come.

I'm also in the beginning stages of making videos and DVDs. The material will be based on the most frequently asked C2 questions. Some of the videos will be short and go on my web site, but most of them (DVDs) will be full length and for sale through my ezine and affiliate programs.

The most exciting part of using C2 is coming up with more and more ways to use it. The possibilities are endless. C2 is growing my business for me, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to be able to implement it on my web site.

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.
