HubPages Helps Users Become Effective Online Writers; Announces HubCamp Program

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 14, 2010) - Many good writers find it hard to transfer their creative skills to the world of online writing where searchability, link building and traffic generation are as important as a good writing style. To help users understand and master the necessary skills of effective online creation, HubPages today launched its multi-city HubCamp program designed to help HubPages users of all levels of proficiency become more successful online authors.

"Good writing and good technology skills don't always co-exist. Our 200,000 published users each have very different kinds of expertise, and have in-depth knowledge on topics that are valuable to others. We want all of them to have equal chances of success on HubPages," says Paul Edmondson, CEO of HubPages. "It's hard to always understand and learn in an online format. So, alongside our online videos and tutorials, we decided to adopt an offline teaching format as well. It gives us a chance to meet with our users in their hometowns, answer their questions and help them become even more successful at online content creation on HubPages."

Designed as a series of seminars, HubCamps will give writers the insight into using HubPages to publish their writing, generate an interested readership and earn money from their content. Employing its philosophy that everyone is an expert on a subject of value, HubCamps will use a tutorial format where HubPages hosts will walk attendees through all the information they need to create search-friendly, financially lucrative and enjoyable to read articles for the HubPages site. Simultaneously, HubPages will offer more proficient users all the necessary "meet-up" resources and materials to conduct HubCamps of their own within their communities.

"HubCamps are a way for our community of authors to connect with each other and to give and receive suggestions on how to write better Hubs," says Ren Chin, Vice President of Marketing. "We feel certain that not only will our users enjoy our company-hosted tutorial model, but will also adopt the concept by delivering their own HubCamp classes within their local communities. We hope to support these practices by offering everything our authors need to teach personalized HubCamps in their hometowns."

Today's HubCamp will be held at Hollywood, Los Angeles, at the Beverly Garland's Holiday Inn Universal Studios in North Hollywood. The address is 4222 Vineland Ave. A schedule of future events is available on:
