SBI! Reviews: Local Business
Update #4

Hi Ken,

It's been another fabulous year. Strong growth in sales and ever improving targeted traffic results...

Sales are up 46% and traffic is at 900 uniques daily.

I am very fortunate. The success of my "local" business site has given me and my family the chance to live anywhere we want. And our decisions don't affect my asphalt business in any way, even if we were to decide to move every few years. Juddbackflipgrab

But that's not going to happen for a long while...

My wife Christina, our 9 year old son Justin and I just love it here in Anguilla.

We have also taken a number of trips this year -- in fact, as I write this, we just got back from a week up in the Montreal area. How's that for a flexible business schedule?

Life is good! And as you can see, I still love kite surfing.

The secret to the success of is simple. Each and every day, my team follows the proven step-by-step SBI! process.

I have two full-time staff members (just writing that makes me smile when I realize how much my small-town business has grown due to the Net!) who run the day-to-day operation of the business. One of their jobs is to constantly update and create new content on the site.

And that's why my site continues to enjoy top Search Engine ranking status for a huge number of keywords and keyword phrases. Because of that, I get targeted traffic so leads are easier to convert into sales.

On the monetization front, we now have put an excellent shopping cart solution in place. This feature allows us to streamline the purchasing process.

My team and I also keep our ears and eyes open for additional money-making opportunities. For example, I'm proud to announce our new directory listing service. But there's more. We are in the midst of building an asphalt trailer division as well.


What do I learn each year? Building a successful business takes hard work, especially in a tough economy. It takes focus and persistence.

The right kind of tools and guidance paves the way, though. (Sorry, I couldn't resist the plug for my business!) That's what SBI! does for me...

Every time I consider the unique value that SBI! delivers, allowing anyone with drive and determination to succeed, I am just blown away. I don't think that feeling will ever leave me, even though I started my site five years ago!

Now that I stop and think about it, there is a lot of similarity between my two passions, kite surfing and SBI!. (Not only am I an SBI! owner, but I'm also part of the SBI! Advisor team at

Both give me those exhilarating feelings of flying and freedom, while at the same time making me want to go even higher the next time! I'm definitely in control of how and where I go.

What a dream match! And I get to do both of my passions every day, thanks to SBI!.

All the best as always!
