Using Contests with Content 2.0 Makes Site Explode

When I first heard about C2.0, I immediately decided that I wanted to use it in an organized, targeted manner instead of just pasting invites on random pages of my site. I wanted to use C2.0 to create information that my visitors would be actively seeking. It took me several weeks to decide how I wanted to use the program, and it took me a few more weeks to figure out how to organize my pages. The system I used has worked out extremely well for my site, and I do not regret the time I spent planning. My advice to SBIers using C2.0 is to chart your own path - consider your visitors’ wants and needs, be creative and take time to think things through!

Since launching C2.0 on my site a little over a year ago, my visitors have created over 800 pages that bring search engine traffic to my site. I receive a few random C2 contributions here and there, but most of my contributions are the result of an annual contest I run on my site. I have monetized my C2.0 pages with Google Adsense, and I am currently brainstorming other monetization options for my C2.0 pages and my website as a whole. C2.0 was definitely worth the effort and I am thrilled that it is now free!

Summary

SBI! delivers a proven process and a the only complete suite of tools that convert your knowledge/passion into a profitable e-business.

Your knowledge and life experiences are unique. Use SBI! to tap into your interests. Connect with like-minded people. Grow a profitable e-business that can make this the first day of the rest of your life.

SBI! has long been the best way to achieve e-business-building success. No other product has its proven track record of success.

We took the best and pushed it an entire level higher. C2 turns your visitors into willing content-contributors. Content 2.0 pushes way beyond blogging, where you still create all the content and where only a few (the same few, if any) visitors leave short comments, often just to get "link love."

Content 2.0 is true Web 2.0 for the small e-business person. Visitors create full Web pages because they want to, because they share your passion. Others comment. Viral spread happens.

Important Disclosure

This site was started by SiteSell.com (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 SiteSell.com. 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.
