  • Making Money on HubPages

Job opening manager needed urgently - Traffic optimizer position - payment of all sums received for six months.

Updated on September 21, 2013

I am like this rattlesnake belt buckle, I ain't doing nobody no good lest I be fastened to belt and holding up my drawers

No big hurry.

I need a manager and traffic optimizer.

(to the machines -- this is not really a solicitation, I just worded that way to make a point - to hyper critics, read the hub before you complain)

I have a day job. I love to write. If it is legal I want a human to do my management. I want somebody to take what I have and market it. Hubpages has been good to me, I want to return the favor. I imagine to a veteran here that doing it would be easy. I need optimization and management of my writing.

I do not see any rules against it. And if someone is doing this all day long and likes the networking and moving things around and putting them into the right places -- well I have content.

You would have to go to my profile I suppose to determine if you could make money at it that was worth your time. But my hubs are just sitting taking up space as far as Hubpages must be concerned. I have 378 hubs. Some unpublished. only about 70 featured right now. I only average about 350 views per week. And only get about 30 or so comments.

I think Hubpages deserves me to drive traffic here and make them some money off of me. Heck if all I had to do was write I would even fix all my unfeatured and clean up and finish my unpublished. It would be great.

I am sure some folks think that I am talking a little bit crazy

I reckon I might be a little loco

But it doesn't seem right to not use what I have at least for someones' benefit. See when I set out on this writing journey I said "self give two years and then give it go to try to make money" that would be in May 2014. But here is the deal; without promoting I feel like I am just taking up space.

Hubpages has changed and not doing nearly as well as a year ago. Well if more of us here made more money they would do better. Quite simple math really.

If you think this just makes no sense let me know

Is this just a stupid idea?

See results

The business end of this stick.

One would have to evaluate whether they thought with my stats without any promoting or other publishing outlets and my content. They could make money off my content by doing the aforementioned.

I did go to my ebay and Amazon buttons recently and filled them in. It is kind of fun picking the keywords and then products to match. I am activated on adsense but from what I can tell I am not running that correctly. And frankly I do not want to learn it right now.

This whole idea hit me on a forum I think it was where someone asked how to increase traffic -- an therefor revenue. I followed it for a bit. And I saw some geniuses in this area I ran right over and viewed some profiles and they were excellent writers as well so I started following them. Man I really think that if you have moderately decent content and market it properly you could easily be making 60K a year off of just Hub and blog and website and social networking sites. Yes it would take 8-10 hours a day. But I could just write 4 and let the manager handle the rest and split it and that is a fine part time job.

I got beautiful roses. Guess how much time I have to spend on them a day

You got it. I have done the hard work and they are in great shape. Now I spend as much or as little time as I please with them.

The egotistical side.

I may not be a great writer but I have really interesting and important things to say. And I want a larger audience to be impacted by what I write. In this same vein I would like to diversify enough so that at one place I can concentrate on one area and another a different area. From what I can tell there are several here that do that quite well.

I know that is just down right arrogance. But think of it this way. If you are just writing for the money and not because you have something important to get across -- I can smell you one paragraph in as stinky. Well you got my hit, probably by SEO and Keywords and by a great title and maybe that made you some dinero. But instead of helping me in some way you just hurt me and pissed me off wasting my time.

I think I would like to be a little more prideful (I know it is a sin mamma) and a little less hurtful. I get into arguments with folk and many folks do not like what I have to say. And I have two guys in the religion area that complain about me and try to get me banned frequently on forums - Strange because all three of us are Christians -- or is that hypocritical -- let us leave it at strange. But I do not think I have a single thumbs down and no one has ever complained to my face about anything I write.

And I am not a failure here, so I must have something to say.

To me this time is a beginning of a sunrise

But that is just my current perception it really is a sunset

I think it is time I come out of my shell, with a little from my friends.

I think my boy really thought he was turtle for a second there -- oh dear!

Is this service viable?

5 out of 5 stars from 1 rating of Manager, Optimizer and traffic consultant

As is this authors' want I end with some thoughts

If a man builds a bigger barn to store more stuff he collects and dies tomorrow? What then?

If we have something we are not using we should lend it or use - the proverbial use it or lose it!

The above thought is why I am working on going solar

We should all enjoy and participate in hard work - the hardest part is picking the work.

If a thought is shared it may turn out to be wrong and you the fool, but if right you are cool

Ideas begin in this place called a brain, all wet and gray and dark, just think how they may blossom if shared in the bright sunlight

      I'm really not sure what term/phrase to use for such a manager; I found this page, with URL: http://talent-agencies.findthebest.com/d/a/Califor... , but am not sure if it would be useful. You might want to try choosing a specific type of talent, e.g.Writers, before searching on the site. As a disclaimer, I have no idea regarding the reputation and performance of the agencies listed. Any additional findings shared by you would be most welcome. Good luck! No problem =)

      Thanks Quirinus, I wonder if there is a site that has people for hire for such an endeavor.

      There's so much insight in your hub, Eric, and in the exchange of comments. As hubbers, we do need to be passionate about writing. That passion can be diffused if we have to attend to the marketing as well. It's an excellent idea to look for someone to do the marketing, for one to be able to give priority and devote full time to what one does best. Thanks for sharing, Voted up!

      No doubt about what you say. I guess it is a matter of time and prioritizing and promotion and networking is not my priority right now. But it could be for someone else.

      Well, if you put it like that, it makes more sense. My mind works in strange ways. I can't even do a geometry proof even when I understand the concept and follow the logic when someone else does it.

      Both writing and the networking and promotion are time consuming. I have found that the networking takes the most time, though it can ofyen be the most enjoyable. However, when my availability to network is darn near none, traffic falls off. While publishing posts is also important, it seems to be networking that hurts or helps me the most. Of course, I am not speaking about HP.

      Rolly, my business card reads "Ace of all trades" and I am, because I know how and when to get help. I think that we do the best for others and ourselves when we are passionate about what we do. I am passionate about writing but not networking and promotion. When something was too big for my brother to move by pushing, he always came and got me, so I could pull. Partnerships are important Where would we be without marriage?

      Shanmarie, Do NOT Change! My mother born and raised in Naperville up that IL way, transplanted to Arizona. She always just cut to the chase. That is why she became the first Lady to be Chairman of a major Board in her field. Save the gentleness for children and the weak and your lover in that order. (she insisted on being called Chairman -- thought all the feminizing of things was over sensitivity)

      The idea is just that two people can do this job better than one. One in the networking and promotions and one writer.

      Hi Eric... so well put, never doubt that you are not a successful writer. When it comes to SEO and rankings and all this other stuff I must admit I get lost. I do find the restrictions of some of these writing sites have grown to be a burden... not to mention any in particular. I think you are onto something here and love the way you think... surely the advertising revenue could be better shared for those who are contributing.

      Hugs and Blessings

      LOL. Thanks, I think. ;) I'm not trying to be rude! And frankness can get me in quite a bit of trouble. Please forgive me if I do offend you. It's never on purpose. I love you, too. And your hubs are very direct, unique, and filled with your humor. Besides, I'm actually from IL. I'm a transplanted Yankee, according to most Texans. But, I do love this state. hehe

      I'm also not saying it is a bad idea....just don't see how it works is all I'm saying.

      I just love Shanmarie. She got that really cool Texas frankness. Kind of fun they are in the middle between the East where they are known for some amount of rudeness and the West where we worry about offending so much we don't really say a thing.

      I hope to hear some suggestions. Hopefully we can all learn.

      I'm laughing at shanmarie's comment...don't hold back how you feel shanmarie! LOL

      I think it is a novel and clever approach....hell, I'd take on that job....after reading so many boring hubs that say the same old thing, it is refreshing to read a new idea. :)

      Thanks for that I will take some time and rewrite some so it makes sense. I have to admit I was being painfully and relentlessly bothered by my 3 year old and so probably did a little bit of a hack job.

      Dude, are you speaking English here or am I just totally dense? LOL I tried to follow what you are talking about, but you lost me.
