Do you want more eyeballs/traffic? Innovative Marketing Ideas is proud to introduce our proprietary software platform which creates "breaking news" websites. Our software sends out newsbots trained to look for breaking news on keywords surrounding vertical/niche markets. Once our bots find their “target” news stories, they send them to our server whereby our platform reformats into posts containing the title of the breaking news story along with a photo, (if applicable) a 25-250 word summary, credit to the author and a direct link to the original source of the story.  We also provide “related stories” for your readers convenience and pleasure.

To see one of our sites in action, please visit: NFCIP.org  (Breaking News on the NFC Mobile Payment Industry) or NBANewsHeat.com (breaking news on NBA Champion, Miami Heat)  Think of your breaking industry news site as a sort of “mini Drudge Report” built not around politics, but instead around your keywords relating to your specific industry, your specific vertical, AND your specific niche within the vertical. End Result? Eyeballs, aka: TRAFFIC. Make that “qualified” traffic. Your visitors will have a vested interest in the subject matter of your breaking industry news site because they chose to search for those keywords
We invite you to copy and paste any one of our breaking news headlines from NFCIP.org (or NBANewsHeat.com) into Google (or Bing) and see how we perform! When it comes to making Top 10 Lists, IMI blows away David Letterman)
