HubMob Weekly Topic: Products, Products And More Products!

    http://hubpages.com/u/586273_f520.jpg

    This week's HubMob has taken more of a consumer, money-spending, self-indulgent shift, which is totally OK with me. You see, this week's HubMob Topic of Products, Products And More Products! Hub about a product that you love or that other people love is designed to appeal to that inner mall-loving, electronic-buying, web-searching, credit card-swiper that's inside all of us. The thinking is, if you write a Hub about something that you love, then you're most likely also writing a Hub about something that other people love, too, which means that they're probably out there searching for it.

    So, with this week's HubMob, you should pick some type of product that you love or that you know that other people love and create a Hub that will inform, educate, entertain and possibly persuade those people who read your Hub and help them decide whether or not the product(s) is for them. These Hubs should have better potential as revenue generators and you'll also find that they're pretty fun to write, too. One good example of a Hub that would be great for this HubMob topic would be the one that Mark wrote on Five Best iPhone Bluetooth headsets.

    I was partly inspired to create this HubMob after reading DJ Funktual's Forum post that had him asking why he wasn't getting any revenue-generating traffic on his Hubs. One of the main reasons that many brought up was the fact that he should be writing more about the issues and products that he uses as a DJ as opposed to writing about pure entertainment topics. Hopefully this will be a good way for DJ, as well as other Hubbers, to get a better grasp on creating Hubs that are more revenue-friendly. So, pick some products, do a little research and get to Hubbing!

    Oh, and be sure to have some fun. smile

    To join this week's HubMob, please follow the steps below:

    1. Come up with an amazing idea to write your Hub on that has something to do with the topic of products that you love. Make the topic your own and feel free to have fun with it, research it or wing it. It's up to you on how you write your HubMob Hub.

    2. After you come up with your topic idea, click this link and answer the Request that I entered in for all of you HubMobsters. Feel free to use the tags that I suggested or add a few of your own.

    3. Write a an awesomely comprehensive Hub that completely covers your topic idea. Be sure to add an RSS Capsule that includes the RSS feed to the rest of this week's HubMob entries (Link: http://hubpages.com/request/7915/best?rss) and also add one of the HubMob images below to your Hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.

    http://hubpages.com/u/515149_f520.jpg

    4. After you publish your HubMob Hub, reply in this Forum thread with a brief description of what topic idea you wrote about, why you chose it and a link to your newly published contribution to the HubMob. I mean, we all want to see, too!

    5. Keep track of your Hub and keep us updated on any traffic that you're getting and post some screenshots if you end up HubMobbing a few search keyword over on Google.

    6. Promote the HubMob by sending out this link to your friends, family and complete strangers http://HubPages.com/info/hubmob

    Nice topic this week, I shall get on with one right away.

    Oh, not sure if I'm missing something, but can you do more than one HubMob in the same week?

    Cheers Ryan, keep it up.

      Hey WhoArtNow,

      Thanks for the encouragement, I hope that everyone likes this week's topic. It should not only help us all learn to write better product-based Hubs, but it should also be a great time to have these hubs out there on the Web since the shopping season is coming up here very soon.

      Feel free to add as many Hubs as you'd like to the HubMob - the more Hubs the better!

      Also, I have a crazy idea that I've been thinking about here lately and I think I'm going to try out over the next month or so and it has to do with product based Hubs. If I can get the guts to do it I think that I might be able to do something pretty cool. I'll keep you all updated. smile

    OKthis is my first attempt at a hubmob thingy I hope  I got it right! I have done a review of Cases for iPod Nano 4G
    Why this particular item?  I didn't do a lot of research but I know the iPod Nano 4G is new so there will be a demand for the accessories for them: the cases are cheap and light - so a perfect item to buy online.

    Oh and the rss feed is not working properly: I can see items in the feed in edit mode but once I save and done editing it reverts to no items in this feed message!

        1. Ryan Hupfer profile image80
          Ryan Hupferposted 8 years ago in reply to this

          It will be 30 products overviews by the same company and they will all be linked together and will be summarized in one overall Hub at the end. Like I said, might take a little bit of planning, but I think that it will pay off bigtime...especially with the holidays coming up.

    This series of Hubs inspired me and got me thinking about this idea:

    Paul Edmondson talks more about these Rolex Hubs over here in one of his latest Hubs:

    They're making $100+/month and have been for quite a while...and they probably will for a while, too.

    I write a lot of product reviews for my blog. So now that the HubMob topic IS about product reviews I decided to do something a little different. Because that's the kind of rebel I am.

    So my "products" are television shows. Specifically, television shows that scientists have found can make people smarter. (And we are talking entertainment shows here not, you know, PBS nature specials). I tried concentrating on the intelligence-boosting aspects of each show rather than writing a critique of the shows themselves.

    And OMG!!! I have my first fan! Thank you to whomever you are! When I get that figured out I'll reciprocate.

    On to my topic. It's about those handy counter top gadgets the Food Saver and the Seal-a-meal. I did a comparison (albeit a biased one I confess) on the two products and my experiences with both.

    Hey Ryan I got a great topic for next weeks HubMob.... Viruses and getting the bugs out of your computer.. everyone deals with these adware bugs and the new vurtumonde.dll that is IMPOSSIBLE to remove... I thought we could get a bunch of people writing hubs on the different things they came across and how they got them out.. this could be good for the community.. I for one found my solution to vurtumonde in a hubpages hub (thank god she wrote that hub!)

    what do you think guys?

      That is a really good idea Jerrico, and something people would search for.  I remember back in 2007 I had just moved to this new apartment and my computer got a very ugly virus because I had not had time to install virus software.  I rushed to the store to buy a CD, but then later I learned there was software I could download on the Internet.  Interesting topic.
