Content 2.0 Provides Great Value to My Readers

by Leslie Degner, RN, BSN

I have several places on my website where people can share with each other. In one section, they can share their own stories of what type of macular degeneration they have, the treatment they've received and how it has affected their life. Many people comment how reading these stories of how others are handling their vision loss helps them.

Another way I have used Content 2.0 is to offer to see if there are any clinical trials in the country, state, or city they live in. It is an easy thing for me to do and again provides great value to my readers. A physician who is the principle investigator for one of the research studies I wrote about posted some helpful comments and information about the study.

There have been over 100 submissions in the 6 months it has been up on my site. The most popular is the Ask a Question form. A retina specialist posted a well-written comment to one of the questions. I e-mailed him and thanked him for taking the time to post a response. I then asked if he would be interested in answering some of the questions that would best be answered by a physician. In return, he would get a link to his website and practice. He readily agreed. He has answered many questions already, very promptly and succinctly.

I also have an eye specialist who is more nutritionally trained who has also agreed to answer more difficult nutritional questions. He also gets a link back to his practice. Having a variety of professionals answering questions provides another great value to the readers.

I'm excited to find other ways to use Content 2.0 on my site to educate more people about macular degeneration.

Good Luck,

Leslie Degner, RN, BSN

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.
