Romantic Webpages Growing Virally With C2

by Nikki

I first added content 2.0 to my website a couple of years ago, with a lot of success right off the bat. But it wasn't until just recently, when I created a new C2 invitation that REALLY took off..

Since my site is about romantic ideas, it does very well in the months leading up to Valentines Day. This year I had the idea to put up an invitation in which each of my visitors could create a free webpage dedication for their partner.

My first submission came on Jan 16, and within a month I had 100 visitor submissions (pages) built. I soon had people commenting on those submissions, many of which were family and friends of the person that wrote it. I even had one comment from someone's relative saying "Oh, I see you found the site!.. " This showed me that they had been telling their friends and family about my site, giving me no doubt that more people had been spreading the word.

C2 (and SBI for that matter!) is a great tool for building your online presence.

I have Content 2.0 on two of my four SBI sites so far. But have big plans to make it a part of all of them!

An Idea
by: Jan

Hi There!

Looks like Nikki may be busy, and while I can't answer for her, I can offer a suggestion to help you with your question.

I took a quick visit to Nikki's site and see that she covers much more than just Valentine's day. There are other romantic occasions like weddings and anniversary that would keep her busy at all times of the year.

But if someone were finding their C2 stalled after big holidays, etc., a successful method to jump start traffic is to hold a contest. People love to win things and they get very competitive. This can draw lots of traffic and pull a lot of submissions.

Because of its ranking system, C2 is perfect for contests.

Great Idea!

I love romance and your idea has me inspired. One question though: What do you do in other times of the year to get submissions? Or are you rolling along now even though it's not Valentine's Day?

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.
