is on Automatic Pilot Thanks to Content 2.0

by Elad Shippony



SBI! introduced Content 2.0 (C2) in June 2008. It's now mid-February 2010. During this 20-month period, I've received and added 10,332 new visitor-submissions via C2! That's 10,332 new pages on my sites! And as I type these lines, submissions continue to roll in. Without C2 I would have never been able to grow my sites to such an extent, let alone manage them.

Being able to earn an online living with my SBI! sites is a dream come true. Since the inception of C2 and user-generated content, it's even more of a dream because now my sites are rapidly growing on automatic pilot. I'm earning MORE income, and I'm doing substantially LESS work.

Over the years I've written quite a bit about my SBI! adventure. One of the big milestones was the introduction of C2 and SBI's continuing effort to enhance the ability to control and manage visitor-submitted content. Even before the inception of SBI!'s C2, people were sending me party ideas and it was taking me forever to post them onto the sites. It was very tedious work and I was bogged down and backlogged. I didn't have time to do anything besides manually manage visitor submissions.

Then C2 came along and suddenly my workload was streamlined, visitor submissions became manageable, and I have time to develop and monetize my sites. And every few months, SBI! is adding new features that are making the whole process even easier and more effective!

I've discovered through my online experience that many people out there are eager to share their ideas, information, thoughts, etc. on a multitude of topics. You could even say that they're passionate about it and if you don't get their submissions online quickly, they often get upset. The SBI! Site-building process has taught me how to reach those people and C2 is enabling me to provide them a platform for sharing, while I can effectively manage their submissions and get them online fast.

Traffic across my sites has skyrocketed thanks to all the new pages and content being added. In 2007, during the pre-C2 era, my sites averaged 500,000 unique visitors per month. In 2009, with C2 working full-force, my sites averaged 1.5 million unique visitors PER MONTH! That's an increase of 1 MILLION unique visitors per month and get this--during this time I didn't create any of my own content!

That alone explains the power of C2!

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.
