So, What’s an Internet Millionaire Do on a Friday Night? … Launch BlogRush!

BlogRush

Income.com is the flagship site of John Reese’s latest venture to help online entrepreneurs get traffic and make money on the internet. And the very first thing they’ve launched is BlogRush … a social widget to help bloggers increase their traffic and exposure.

There are a few different incarnations of these widgets that help bloggers connect with other bloggers and get exposure on the web. What I like best about BlogRush … is the source. John knows how to get traffic. He knows how to market on the internet. That’s good enough for me.

The BlogRush widget has all the hallmarks of good marketing:

  1. It’s targeted. When you sign up, you choose a category, like business or food. BlogRush uses your category to make sure your posts are seen on other blogs where the readers are most likely to be interested in what you’re writing about.
  2. It’s viral. Not only does it help bloggers and blog readers network, it rewards bloggers with a multi-tiered point system for signing up other bloggers. When someone signs up to BlogRush by clicking on your widget, you get points that give your posts more reach on the BlogRush network.
  3. It’s free. Plain and simple.

The next piece of the puzzle after BlogRush is another Income.com project that hasn’t been unveiled yet called TrafficJam.

I have no idea what TrafficJam is.

But I like it already.

  3. Hey Robin,

    Hope to hear how well it does for you.

  4. I’ve got it on my blog! Also, your title reminded me of something…Isn’t there a show on television called the next internet millionaire or something like that? If you know anything about it…has it started?

  5. Hey Gregg,

    I’ve heard some rumblings about a show like that. Don’t know anything about it though … thinking about starting another fansite? haha

  6. I’ve had it going for about a week now and haven’t really seen my traffic increase from it, but I’ll give it some time and see how things go.

  7. Hi Clarke,

    One of the things I’ve learned about the internet is that it’s easy to try something, see no results and write it off quickly. A lot of times, after we gain a little more knowledge and exoerience, we figure out how to leverage that same thing later on down the road.

    I’m a little less inclined these days to “try and toss” quickly. I like to play around with something a little more. Attack it from different angles. And then if I can’t get any performance out of it … it’s “see ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya”!
