How C2 Helped Our Business Grow

I really don't know where to post our story. Because C2 has created a viral, trust-building, and competition edge effect on our site. But it all started when it got viral, as a mini-Yahoo Answers/forum-kinda-thing. :)

So here goes - is our 2nd site (with my ever-supportive husband, Jose). The first in 2006, Jose's (Pinoys refer to Filipinos of the Philippines) introduced Philippine-made skin lightening products on one page where I took over. It started to take off upon the introduction of C2 as a "Help Line" section to address questions from interested readers.

Content 2.0 established my ability as an 'expert' from more than a thousand posts! I noticed that the more I answered, the more ka-ching! Heck, being an 'expert' pays - financially. And I gained a thousand smiles from buying or non-buying individuals. Why? Because they appreciate when you treat them special, even if they don't buy.

It was then Ken Evoy noticed that I should start a theme-based site to address a growing consumer trust.

I listened. It was the best decision I've made.

And was born on Jan. 2008.

Now, after 2 years, my C2-driven site has another 1700+ questions, comments, testimonials and a wish list. That's over 1700 pages of FREE content!

It has pulled in a ngrowing and growingumber of customers - without even having used SBI's other amazing traffic-building tools yet!

From a mere $20 sale in April 2007 at, I am now enjoying an unbelievable 5 figure gross sales monthly! I now have bigger plans in the future on how to expand my (oh yeah!) home-based business and help more people. Jose will (very) soon quit as a truck driver which means we will reach another one of our goals... bringing Jose home. :-) Even our daughter is on her way to becoming a dermatologist in order to become the company's skin care doctor.

Until now, we can't get over the success we've experienced thanks to SBI and C2. It has CHANGED our lives in sooooo many ways.

We bless the day we found Ken and SBI!. Thank you from the heart. :-)

Amazing Business Power of C2
by: Rick

I am amazed at the power of using C2 to sell certain products to a targeted audience that was built up from another angle.

Of course both websites took advantage of keyword optimization, but the skin whitening site is driven by demand of its own now. Over 1000 pages of superb content that zeros in on specific information. And the result is astounding with a 5-figure monthly income.

I know nothing about skin care, but I see the value of how C2 can really lead you to a new targeted market with fantastic business potential.

Thanks for sharing and get Jose off the road soon.

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.

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.
