Dear fellow internet marketer... sometimes we get so caught up with all the noise about the latest push-button traffic generating software or the 'new kid on the block' social media site that we overlook more established - and maybe more reliable - sources of targeted traffic. Big mistake...
...because there's one site that's been quietly churning out tightly targeted traffic for savvy internet marketers for several years on a 'fire and forget' basis.
You see, social media is the new buzzword for traffic getting.
But it comes with its own problems...
Because - whilst they offer the dazzling prospect of millions of users, which you can attract to your web site or blog, - the downside is that you have to be active pretty much all the time, constantly coming up with fresh content and new ideas.
What's more, there's no guarantee you'll make a single red cent from all your frantic efforts...
So imagine a web site which has around 60 million visitors a year, which...
- Is very easy to understand and use (unlike some social media sites that are really difficult to fully understand and then - when you've almost mastered it - they produce even more radical changes and you have to start over).
- Where a complete web page can be set up in a couple of hours - with no need to constantly come back and 'fresh' it - unlike a blog or a social media page.
- And where you are paid 60% of the advertising revenue generated by your pages (just imagine getting the same deal from FaceBook).
- And where you can ALSO post two live dofollow links to your own money blog or website, backed by the supercharging link juice of a PR6 authority site.
And the good news is...
...such a paragon of a site does exist and has been quietly making money and generating traffic for its shrewd users since August 2006.
What's more, folks who have created pages as long ago as 2008, report that they still get traffic from those pages, four years later, despite never having updated or tweaked the content.
And the name of this site is HubPages.
Hub pages is a collection of web pages, created by its members, called 'hubbers'. It is free to join and the site offers a wide variety of ways of creating vibrant web pages that attract visitors, with easy to use elements as embedded videos, photos, articles, external links, maps, reader's surveys, reader's comments, quizzes RSS feeds from your own web sites and blogs. And you can even add virtual Amazon and eBay stores to your pages for even more income.
And, apart from the autopilot revenue sharing program (which has recently been streamlined to make it even easier to use), HubPages also allow you to have two live links to take visitors direct to your own blog or web site, where you can subscribe your visitors to your email list or sell them your products or affiliate products.
And, because your visitors will have come from one of your hub pages, they will already know something of your expertise on the subject and thus be 'pre-sold'. And research has shown that this type of targeted, pre-sold traffic is up to three times more likely to buy your product or subscribe to your mailing list than traffic coming from paid advertisements.
And - when you also consider these live links also have the power of a PR 6 authority site behind them - it's certainly worth your while to add this excellent source of good, sustainable traffic to your mix, particularly as it doesn't take much effort in relation to the rewards you can reap.
In short, HubPages offers you the very best of both worlds.
But there is one big problem
Because, it's simply not enough to slap up a few hub pages and then sit back and enjoy a torrent of new targeted traffic - because it just won't happen.
You see, anyone can hit a golf ball.
But to make that little white ball go exactly where you want it to - that's a different story entirely. Because you need the insider secrets, you aren't going to discover by accident. To get those, takes many days and months of heartache, frustration and sweat.
And it's the same with HubPages.
To have any hope of generating good solid, targeted traffic from HubPages (as well collect some of that automatic 60% ad revenue) takes insider knowledge, hard-won by trial and error.
And (as you'll discover in a moment) there's no earthly reason why you can't short-circuit all that hard work and steep learning curve and start seeing results within days!
But just imagine, once you trigger an unstoppable flow of high quality, pre-sold, targeted traffic from HubPages, the difference that would make to your bottom line.
So just imagine never having to worry about filling up your tank at the gas station. Or perhaps you'd even make enough extra profit from your HubPages empire to buy that new car you've always promised yourself.
So just imagine striding into the showroom, knowing you can finally afford the vehicle of your dreams - no loan involved - you're paying cash and driving it away!
Well now you can do more than just imagine, because I have the full inside track on how to create HubPage success and I'm about to reveal all to you. So...
