I've made an invitation for interested parties to write for hubpages with pay. Visiting my referral trackers, I discovered that I've already hooked 4 inactive signups, meaning that up to now not one has dared to write, submit and publish a hub. Any suggestion as what to do so as to inspire and coax them to publish hubs.
If you mean that you got people to join through your referral and they are inactive.you need to get in touch with them and personally encourage them, probably helping them with their initial hubs..most people don't know where to start.
I tried smacking them around a little bit, but that doesn't work either.
As an infamous Hub author once said, "You can lead a person to a site, but you can't make them write."
If your signups don't come here already possessing the desire to create content, there's no way you're going to inspire or induce them to do so.
I have over 100 signups and only about 20% of those have ever written a single hub. Unfortunately, due to how easy it is to sign up for sites and the number of sites out there, it's not unusual for people to sign up for a site then forget about it. Think about yourself - how often have you signed up for a site just because it looked interesting and you planned to get back to it later, or just to leave a comment or have a quick look around?
You can try contacting them, but I've personally never had success with this either. It's better to work on getting more signups and you'll usually get a small percent who become avid publishers. Out of the 20% of my signups who've published, I've seen about 500 hubs. So it can happen, just get more sign ups and cross your fingers!
I intend to wait for others to post their comments, suggestions and reactions on the issue. For the moment, I'm beginning to feel that it is QuestionMaster's advice that is quite worth taking.

How successful are you with the Referral program of Hubpages?Are you having enough sign-ups? Are they doing well? Or they simply sign up and then be inactive after?

I've had a few people sign up under my trackers when I send out emails of my hubs, but I was wondering what some of the rest of you have done as far as setting up a more unique way to have friends and family sign up here at hubpages? For some strange reason I don't think my profile link for sign...

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

Does anyone know if the Hub Pages are deleting old accounts that have been inactive for a long time?

When people sign up 4 HP in order for them to leave a comment on your hub, do you get credit for them signing up as an author and how do you see your referrals in the first place??

I can do up to 4 hubs. I can do more on vacation or when I retire from my job someday.
