Why doesn't anyone like me? I read everyone else's hubs, join every fan club and even serve breakfast. Despite my efforts, I am still working for a living and not able to live off of my HubPages empire. Life is so unfair!!!
Don't be disappointed. It takes a whole hour (sometimes two) to make your first thousand dollars, and it gets better after that.
Try to make at least 5,000 forum posts a day. This will also increase your visibility, and will make people like, admire, and respect you.
You could also dump a lot of unrelated keyword phrases into the questions and answers pages. This will make Google love you, and give you a higher ranking.
Find as many hubbers as you can, and become their fans. Some of them will become YOUR fans too, which is a GOOD THING. A couple of hundred an hour is a good target to aim for.
Publish a lot of hubs too. If you've only got one or two, you won't get those big dollars rolling in. Adding champagne to the breakfasts you server could be a good idea - I don't know of anyone doing that yet, so you could develop a great little niche for yourself.
Also, put links to three or four of your hubs into every forum post you make. This will attract hubbers like bees to a honeypot, and they will surely read your hubs, and click on the ads.
I'm sure you'll learn lots of other wonderful income increasing techniques, but those ones will get you started.
NOTE TO HUBBERS WITH IQ'S LESS THAN THEIR SHOE SIZE: The above is satire. don't believe a word of it.
Eric I'm so glad you posted this. I was just starting to get some research done of how to attract some dollars, fans, dollars and fans my way. Did I say I was trying to attract some dollars my way? I will now go and implement each and everyone of your points. I always take your advice seriously. Thank you.
I'm not sure what my shoe size has to do with anything but...you know best
Funniest thread EVER!!!!! I just laughted my ruddy head off! Why do you guys not have your own comedy show???? You'de def make a million for that and would make even more money from your hubs, you can't lose.
Thank you, thank you, thank you This is the best thread I've come across since finding Paraglider's limericks post. Thanks so much for brightening my day It is all so clear now Eric! Now I see what I was doing wrong. Bless you, my children, my path is now clear and my way lighted before me (genuflects in awe and gratitude)
For every one that you buy, you store up cosmic credit, and then when you write your own e-book, those cosmic credits come back to you.
Of course, you have to pay half the revenue to your affiliates, so you're still out of pocket.
But you can take the screen shot of your thousands of dollars of income from your e-book, and use it to launch your speaking career, after which folks will pay thousands for the six-CD set of you reading your e-book aloud, with the bonus DVD of you speaking your e-book to a live audience.
That's when you start being ahead financially.
And it all starts with buying those e-books - it's called "paying your dues". Get onto Clickbank and get that credit card smokin'!
Remember, every dollar spent is a cosmic credit ...
