Content 2.0 Is Helping Me Flatten The World

As I see it, Content 2.0 is playing a big part in further "flattening the world" as Thomas L. Friedman described at length in his book "The World Is Flat".

Here Is How

SBI! 2.0 helps to fill the gap between knowledge and its consumers ...

+ By giving knowledgeable people a first-class seat in my fast rising SBI!-built Web site - (over 20,000 page views per month and rising).

+ By giving information-hungry people - wanting to understand major issues such as "global warming" - access to more reliable information not available anywhere else.

I created to share my knowledge and hopefully help my readers better understand the weather-related information they are being fed by the media.

I have more than 25 years experience in operational meteorology, which means that I know for a fact that do not have all the answers ;-)

I felt that, collectively, my readers must have the answers that I do not posses or fully understand. Some of them would love to share what they know, but do not have the means to reach their intended audience.

I began looking for a way to give my readers a "platform" or "launching pad" from which they would share their experience and knowledge for the benefit of my Web site visitors.

SBI! To The Rescue ... Again

That is when the creators of SBI! came along wit Content 2.0 ... and saved my day, as usual ;-)

They developed a way for me to give my more knowledgeable readers the platform to publish their articles by giving them a permanent and visible berth on my (already) well known Web site.

Soon after incorporating Content 2.0 features in my Web site, individuals (some of them PhDs) began submitting articles in which they share their knowledge of atmospheric phenomena, climate change and "global warming".

My contributors get extra exposure. I get valuable extra content that I would, otherwise, never have been able to offer my Web site visitors.

My readers, my contributors and I are happy. A win-win-win situation.

Rewarding In More Ways Than Expected

My contributors obviously are proudly letting people know that they have published an article on a prominent Web site ... because I can see visitor traffic increasingly entering my Web site via their contributed pages.

Unexpectedly, my site's growing presence on the Web is becoming rewarding in ways I had not expected. The extra traffic is generating more income. A most welcome side-effect.

I am retired and I am awed by the fact that I am now contributing positively to a world wide change for the better.

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.
