50 in 30 days - My Personal Make Money Hubpages Challenge
The Outline to the Challenge of Making Money on Hubpages
For a lot of people Hubpages is a great way to express
themselves by allowing them to write on whatever topic they want and get their
voice heard onilne. However there are a growing number of Hubpages's users that
use Hubpages as a great way to make money online. There are several thirty-day
challenges out there in which people try to write more work as well as increase
their revenue via Hubpages. I have decided to do my own thirty-day moneymaking
challenge to dramatically increase the amount of money I make on Hubpages in
one month. Since I've only just started on Hubpages I will be going from zero
dollars and a day to what I hope will be $50 a day.
I’m calling it my 50 in 30 day challenge!
How I plan to do this
With Hubpages there are several ways to make money via advertising. The main ones are Google Adsense and Amazon associates. I have a lot of experience with Adsense. In many respects with Adsense it is just a case of setting up and getting going. The main way you will make money with Google Adsense is by getting more people to read your hubs, more people who read your articles the more likely it is someone will click on an advert. There is more to it, however the most part it is a numbers game. Because of this, the best way to increase my Adsense income is by writing more hubs. This is because Hubpages themselves optimise your article with the best positioning for Adsense adverts. By doing this you do not need to worry about where to put the adverts or what size is best for the article. Obviously on Google some keywords pay more than others on Adsense, this is a whole different article to write, however if we are talking pure numbers then the best way to increase clicks is to write more.
This is also true for Amazon Associates. Amazon Associates is Amazon's own affiliate program in which you get money if you refer people to Amazon and then they buy a product. While Amazon do not give out the highest percentages of commissions in the world, I believe this can be levelled out as Amazon is arguably the most trusted shopping company on the Internet. You can always trust Amazon for payments and security and because of this you are more likely to get sale if you show people a product on Amazon. You could ask anyone on the street if they have heard of Amazon, and they will say yes. This means a lot when it comes to buying things online, as a lot of people still have concerns about this. In my thirty-day challenge I'm going to test out is whether its best to write about one product, or several products in one article. I've read several articles on Hubpages about this and it really does seem to depend on the type of product and the type of market that product is aimed for, so I will investigate how this will affect what sells.
I hope to write the least one page a day across an average of 30 days. This will be hard to keep up a good quality writing style as I'm sure at one point (probably more than one point) I will run out of ideas for things to write about. I can think of lots of now however have already come across this situation a few times. But the key here is to try and make more money so it will be interesting to see how the writing style and the article content changes as the month goes on. Across the month I will adapt my work as I find different articles working.
Why $50 a day?
If I can make $50 a day via Hubpages I would be very happy.
I know you can make money via Hubpages, seriously good money even, as you see
there are many people who have written hundreds even thousands of hubs. The
amount of traffic they get alone must equal a really good amount of money from
Adsense. Whilst I am aiming high to get $50 a day in just 30 days I think if
you aim higher, you'll reach higher and you are more likely to achieve what you
want. Sure my challenge seems like a hard task, but its something I believe in, and I'm sure you guys want to believe in it to. Because if I can do it, you sure can!
So please give your encouragement and if you are interested in this, why don't you join my challenge? If we work together I feel we can easily achieve $50 a day no problems! Please let me know via a message if you do and let's go! Good luck!

Week 1 Money Update
Adsense Earnings: $5.52
Amazon Earnings: $3.59
Thoughts: Wow that was a lot of effort for little reward. However, on second viewing after reading some other people's challenges, I am doing really well for a first week. The thing with marketing online is that it takes time for your pages to mature. I've seen some good figures on some of my hubs. Two are receiving over 50 views a day which I am very happy with. I am going to see which hubs worked best, and try to optimize this week to increase click through rates.
