What is SBI anyways?

That is probably the first question on your mind right?

..I knew it :-)

But just before I tell you, please do me a small favour, OK?

Go to right now and search for:

  • famous places in jamaica, OR
  • jamaican flowers, OR
  • jamaican rum cream, OR
  • aquasol beach, OR
  • jamaican roots drink, OR
  • free jamaican recipes, OR
  • rivers in jamaica, OR even
  • current events in jamaica

- TRY ANYONE! Go ahead.

Go... I'll wait!!


Did you notice that this website ( showed up on the very first result page? OF COURSE!

SBI is actually a Canadian company that guided me step by step to my online business  success.

The 'man behind the music' is Ken Evoy- its founder.

And the story?...

Well, I call it a story, simply because, like a story, it tells the particulars of a significant act or occurrence, a course of events - and this is significant enough :-)

How the SBI relationship started was very interesting!

Now although I had fairly stable job, I was looking for other avenues to supplement my income. I decided I would research some online possibilities so I started to work Google!

Online Opportunities

I ran into scores and scores of online business opportunities. I signed up with a few affiliate programs and started to actively promote them- from using free web pages and printing posters, to buying newspaper advertising spaces locally.

--Ms Pancheeta at the Western Mirror knows me very well now :-) --

But even after weeks and months, the impact was very minimal. However, deep down I figured that if others are succeeding online- not necessarily because they are smarter than I, then I should be able to succeed too.

I Found SBI!

With a little more self-conviction, I went back to Google and started to do some more research.

Again, I found several programs- but that time I was more cautious of the hype and false promises.
(you would understand why, right?)

But this time ONE STRUCK ME!...

One of Google's result showed up - a directory of affiliates programs that also offers reviews.

I clicked it and found they were giving the company some great reviews.

I was really impressed- but as you would understand, still cautious, as most of these so called 'online business opportunities' always seems to be very very impressive.

They had an free affiliate program, so I figured, "what the heck, I'll give it a shot" I have nothing to lose!

I signed up free as an affiliate.

The Rest is History!

Believe me, the rest is history..

I made only one sale (US$75) as an affiliate before I decided I had seen enough, I bought the package!

They not only showed me how to build a profitable website from the passion of my country, I learned all the fundamentals of online business which has opened up a new world to me- I doubt I would ever learn that in any University!

I felt very accomplished watching my little website pull visitors per day (as they promised) from 5 to 10 to 30 to 80, and then the snowball really startedin only a few weeks!

They took my passion and helped me to create a top 2% internet website [nothing catchy- I agree, but it works!]

A Website that Works!

Now my site is already matching up with the 'goliath' travel websites out there.

Listen to this:

As of 5/31/08, just 14 months of its launching, the website had a DAILY average of 987 unique visits, 674 visitors, and 2473 total page views! Yes per day!

That was 76,671 page views per month!

Updated: [September 2016 stats showed over 8,000 visitors per day, 80% of who are brand new, and a total of 480,000 page views per month!]

Amazing stuff!

That allows me to very earn a very nice supplement to my regular day job income each month

In fact, I earn from various avenues; Google's Adsense program is just one of them.

-Side Note-

And by the way, it happened WITHOUT any sort of advertising-none at all! I actually consider the investment to be a fraction of what could have been my advertising cost.

TIP! If you are interested to know exactly how I put it all together, click here and I'll rush you a copy of my free report on how I did it.

Moreover, Google had begun to give a number of my pages very high search engine rankings as I showed you above!

Never mind the fact that I already had some amazing #1 and #2 rankings at YahooAsk and Windows Live- for both text and image searches!

But Google is the BIG GUY, and if you in the Top 30 ranking of Google, your site is darn well respected...

...and my site is :-)

It continues to get many TOP 10 rankings already, but for example purposes...

I welcome you to go to right now and search for any of these keywords:

  1. "jamaican rum"
  2. "rivers in jamaica" 
  3. "national symbols of Jamaica"
  4. "current events in jamaica" 
  5. "famous people from jamaica"
  6. "sports played in jamaica"
  7. "famous places in jamaica"
  8. "historical sites in jamaica"
  9. "jamaican climate" 
  10. "jamaican sayings" 
  11. "facts about jamaica" OR 
  12. "jamaican animals"

[with or without the quotes]

There are MANY more, but try those, you will likely see this website [] on the very FIRST page!

Yes, in the TOP 10 of millions of pages! AND THIS IS STILL EARLY DAYS!

It is still hard for me to believe that this website made it to the top 2% of all the websites online in less than 6 months! And more importantly, keeping it up!

Don't believe me? Click Here and look at the Alexa rankings in real time. Now compare that now to the 60,000,000 websites online. Top 2% right?

I just couldn't go wrong with SBI, their 10-day guide took away all the complexities of building a profitable little website.

In fact, it feels like nothing but fun!

-Side Note-

If you would like to learn more about SBI, I would strongly suggest you join their free affiliate program now.

Yes, their free affiliate program allows you to promote the company and earn a whopping commission (60%), but joining it does a lot more for you - in my opinion...

It allows you to get on the inside and take part in the family-friendly forum discussions where you mingle & rub shoulders with other super successful SBI'ers (a lot more than I)- without buying the subscription!

For me, that was one of the best reasons joining SBI.

Join it FREE right now and start learning!

Of course, you can still join just to promote and make a nice commission. If that's your reason, feel free to use my website story as a testimony! :-)

-End Side Note-

Have a question about SBI?
Still have doubts?

That is perfectly OK.

Just take a minute and send it to me here

Here too are questions I was already asked

My story has inspired quite a number of persons already, not least is one guy called Dean. He already started his own SBI site which is doing very well.

And by the way, you are welcome to view a few of the phenomenal comments I am getting about this site.

[See more successful sites here]

Today, I have various sources of income from this site.

I am not the only fanatic of this SBI formula either; there are hundreds of other average people- even from other 3rd world countries that are succeeding online, thanks to SBI!

Some SBI'ers -we call ourselves, have even created videos to show off!

Click and watch this short 3-minute video by Stephani And Tobias, fellow Sbiers, who created another small site

SBI - Earn Money Picture

So again, much thanks to Ken, and the other guys (including Deb) at the great interactive forums.

Not only did they provided me a great product that allowed me to share my passion with the world [and make money], they provided me a kind of education that I could never learn in any college.

Thank you SBI!
