What is your monthly earning goal for online activities?

    I want to have statistics about this. Whether you are Filipino, Indian, American, or any other.

      I don't have any earning goals. My goal is to bring more people to my niche - since not so many people are involved.

      Right now, about $1000 a month. I would like more but I'm barely hitting that right now. I think when I build up my 'stash' of online content I'll see a bigger profit, which is exactly why I'm on HubPages.

        Wow. This is the kind of answer I want. By the way, is $1000 a month more or less equal an ordinary job as an employee? Thanks. Are you an American citizen?

          Yes, I'm American. $1000 a month is about what I would make at a normal full time job. However, that's only because I'm fairly young and new to the job market (21). I haven't completed college yet and in the crappy job market I wouldn't be able to get anything better than minimum wage.

      My long term goal is $1000 per month, but of course I have short term goals..such as 500 a month. I have made a few hundred dollars in the last couple months. I am glad, but need to exponentially increase..

      I really need to start working more consistently like I did in the fall. Lately, I have not been not up to par. My niche is sort of making me discontent about its potential.

      Consistently earning $1000 per month.
      I can go well past leading up to Christmas, but then it drops off. 

      Then $2000, then $3000, etc.

      I'd like to be able to work from home (or a coffee shop or library).

      My goal is a grand a month.  No, I'm only about to get my first Adsense check ever; so I'm a LONG LONG way from that goal.  I am, however, doing some serious learning.

      My initial goal is $500 a month, but eventually I would like it to be in the thousands. I'm doing farely well on hubpages with the small number of hubs I have so far.

      I only recently hit my first payout.  I am, however, rather committed to this game right now, and I will be until Spring and Summer get here, and then I'll take up my yearly hvac trade for air conditioning repairs.

      Lots of folks are making a thousand dollars a month here on hubpages, but it's not the least bit easy to do; but it is doable so long as someone realizes that it takes a lot of time to build to that level.

          ZERO!  LOL    I just discovered HubPages again.  Seems that I signed up some time in the past and promptly forgot all about the Website. Too bad as I spend many hours a day on my computer doing research.  Now I am wondering if some of those hours should be spent earning extra cash.  I’m glad that you asked the question.

            I don't have the answer as I'm also new in this enterprise so as in HubPages. But I've been in network marketing with an extensive knowledge on selling yourself, patience, diligence, etc., so I want to believe those who succeed are just ahead of me in time and income. I may also become successful. The thing offered by HubPages is PASSIVE INCOME. Who wants to work for money forever? I'm tired of editing documents. I am stressed everyday. Did I answer your question?

          Looking at your profile, with 681 hubs and joined two years ago, you must have a steady influx of income from adsense I suppose.

            ryankettposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            Maybe I do, maybe I don't, my online activities stretch further than my Hubpages and there is nothing to say that I don't have many more Hubpages out there.

            I don't disclose my online earnings these days, as a result of people assuming too much and knowing too little. I am currently writing an article on Xomba, for example.

      The answer can be found in the Learning Center found below hubpages. Just use most of the capsules and arrange them so that you and everyone else will be delighted to see and read your hub. Content is one thing, creating a nice-looking hub is another.

    My immediate goal is a steady $1000 per month between HubPages, Squidoo, and my other projects online. I'm hitting it occasionally, but not regularly right now.

    Longer-term goal is $3,000 per month. Ultimate goal depends on how long it takes me to get to that!

    1. sergs_pogi profile image62
      sergs_pogiposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Looking at your profile, with 306 hubs and joined 3 years ago, you must have been earning quite a lot today. Is it enough to substitute to your job if you have one?

      1. kerryg profile image87
        kerrygposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        ~shrugs~ Not really. My husband makes nearly as much in a day as I do in a month. I'm not a great commercial hubber - I hate shopping, which makes me a pretty bad saleswoman for amazon/ebay type hubs, and many of the topics I like writing about best are obscure or simply not very profitable for ad revenue either. But I love writing, I love making money writing about whatever I want, and I love having a flexible schedule that allows me to stay home with my daughter, so it works for me.

        1. sergs_pogi profile image62
          sergs_pogiposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Therefore, hubpages earnings are not enough to substitute to an ordinary job.

            kerrygposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            Not a full-time job, but they are enough to substitute for a part time job, which is probably as much as I'd want with a four year old at home anyway.

    my goal is €500 a month (Ireland). Nowhere near at present of course, but I find it encouraging that even with the little time I have at present, my hubs are still generating money on a very small scale. I can see how it would be possible to reach my goal if I put more time into it. It`s a long term goal, and I`m really excited about it.

    Written By Jimposted 6 years ago

    At this point, I'd like to just get to $1.00! smile

    I think a reachable short term goal for me would be $10/mo. and should be doable within a month or two. Long term, greater than $1000.

    I think persistence and hard work will eventually pay off if you commit yourself to a plan. Consistency is probably one of the most underrated factors in being successful in any endeavor.

    Good luck to everyone in reaching their goals!

    (And yes, this is my first post here at HubPages!)

    reindeerzposted 6 years ago

    I aim to make $1000 a month, however I make that amount through my other writing jobs.  Right now I'm at the building stage with Hubpages.  I made around $40 last month and am shooting for $75 this month on Hubpages.  I hope that if I find the time to keep creating articles here that I will get up for $400 or $500 a month on here by the end of the year.  I really enjoy having the freedom to write about what I want to instead of what I'm assigned.  Maybe one day I can count residual income as a major portion of my writing income.

    For the record I am an American.  I'm a full time student and stay at home mom so I like being able to help provide for my family without having to wait tables on the weekend and not see my family.

      I check your profile and I found out you have created 79 hubs to date. How many hubs have you written last month that gave you $40? It's just amazing. I'm skeptical to take the 30-day challenge for I am also working as an editor in an outsourcing company. Writing articles in HubPages is my sideline only. I'm still figuring out the true potential.

    Sergs,
    My goal is determined monthly for now. It has to be more than the previous month.

    But if i have to think on a long term range, i'll say £1000 per month by December.

    So i'm going to have to work harder to get there.

    Around $25,000 a month!

    Won't tell you my full average monthly earnings, but it's enough to live off with spare money for luxuries such as a new Kodak ZI8 HD camera which I needed and a couple of laptops which help spread my online files around somewhat.

    My online activities exceed just Hubpages as I have blogs and a few private projects under other names which do well on their own.

    Ever since working for others I have become bored with working for employers that don't really value your work, they just treat you like a worker, so that's why I haven't worked a job since 2008 and am focusing on online business to see if I can push it to the extreme!

    This isn't an answer for how much per month, but I would like to make $60k by the end of the year so that I can pay for college the following year.

    All of the money I make that isn't part of my day job goes into a savings account so I can properly finish my college degree (I'm about halfway through!).

    My day job pays my bills.

    Right now my online income is averaging about $50 a month (average of last 12 months).  I have a long way to go.

    And I use much more than Hubpages, I run a few of my own sites, so don't think I'm making $50 a month on Hubpages, I'm definitely not.
