Using StumbleUpon to Promote -> ( The Binary Hybrid Wealth System)

Being a social bookmarking site, StumbleUpon is
like your browser’s bookmark function;
however, others can see these sites.

StumbleUpon also has some qualities of a search engine.
Some people use the site like yellow pages, where they
look for service providers; however,
StumbleUpon is unique as it provides information about
sites that other people have recommended.

 Users can vote for or against each site, where more up-votes
for a stumble increase its chances of
being seen by other users.

StumbleUpon users discover new sites but may spend limited
time on newly stumbled websites.
To retain them, capture their interest in the first few seconds.
This will increase the possibility
that they will bookmark your site and up-vote your content.

Become an expert in your area
All that you do on StumbleUpon should contribute towards
 establishing your expertise in your field.
While choosing interests for your profile, select the ones you
have substantial knowledge about.

You have the option to select up to 250 connections and must choose them wisely.
 Stumbling can be done by interest and by following.
Add well-worded comments to your stumbled content to improve
your credibility and visibility. If you discover content that has not been
stumbled yet, add a comment box to provide comments.

Content that has already been stumbled will have a
speech bubble icon in the toolbar
where you can add your comment.

Stumble only good content
Even if your content is very good and better than most content
on similar topics, keep stumbling other people’s
content until you establish credibility.

Be selective about what you stumble as that also
 contributes towards your standing as an expert. Initially,
avoid stumbling your own content because people
generally don’t like new entrants who focus only
on themselves.
Once you have established a position
in the StumbleUpon community, you can gradually
start stumbling your own content.

The recommended ration is 10:1,
where you stumble 1 of your content and 10 by others.

Invest in your launch on StumbleUpon
You can use paid services for launching your content.

To submit your content legitimately without running
the risk of being identified as a spammer,
you can opt for paid
discovery offered by StumbleUpon.

You can get 100 visitors for $5,
which is quite reasonable. Choose a page
from your blog or website and submit
 it with a specific budget for pay per view.

The basic plan charges $0.05 per visitor.
StumbleUpon features
 paid discovery higher up in its algorithm which
ensures views.
 Once your budgeted amount is exhausted, your content will still be visible.

Connect with a stumble exchange group
To gain increased exposure, join a StumbleUpon exchange group.
Becoming a TribelPro member can allow your tribe
to be a stumble exchange group
with extra share buttons.
You would have to be careful though, because StumbleUpon penalizes content
that is discovered and up-voted by the same group consistently.
