Earning Passive Income Online as a Freelance Writer with hubpages

Updated on September 23, 2014

I am the type of guy who is always looking for opportunities that may bring me extra income to substantiate my fortnightly salary. Pity I am not working any more. You would ask me why I wanted extra when I had a job as a divisional Manager with one big agribusiness firm in my country. I did have the job, the statues and the education qualification. Good on me. The worse thing was my paycheck couldn't cater for all the good things in life I dream to have and I was made to work like a crazy robot. I needed time of my own to enjoy my young life.

It was all to do with money and time. I want to get this and that but? I want to go there but? It’s always the but thing at the end and time was always involved. The funny thing is that my BUT+ (T) is located at the back but I tend to bring it every day to the front. If the BUT+ (T) is at the front, then I was literary walking on my own shit. You get the picture.

After a long deeper look into my own life and doing a bit of research particularly online. I decided that I wanted to be a writer. To have more time of my own and doing what I loved doing. A freelance writer that writes for income. That’s what I wanted. I came up with an awful list self-publishing sites but found Hub pages to suit my taste and preference. So here you are reading my article.


Going back to basics for the benefit of non-Huber, what is Hub page all about? This is a question I normally get from my friends in Facebook and other social sites I share the links of my hubs to. I already have several freelance writers in my country willing to sign up under me to writer for hub pages which is good news for hub pages and myself.

Well, for a start, Hub page is a legitimate self-publishing website that you can publish your short articles, poems, news or just about anything and get paid. Get paid for your articles! You heard me right. Money for your articles.

Hub pages is connected to the web giant, Google and uses Google’s earning program such as Google AdSense to pay you. Payment is done through your PayPal account that upon sign up will be configured to your personal bank account.

How it works

1.You sign up for a username and password from Hub pages

2.Once you are accepted, start writing and publishing

3.Apply for Google AdSense account (You have to publish few article before you apply for this as Google wants to see is you are a legitimate writer or a spam worm)( Free sign up)

4.Apply for Google Analytics (To monitor your traffic and income daily-Enjoy watching your Dollars Growing up or down depending on your effort) (Free to sign up)

5.Sign up for a PayPal account (Its free to sign up)

6.Promote your articles on social sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Utube, Google + and many others you can find online

7.Commitment and consistency will build you are good reputation and as your traffic increases, so is your income.

8.Never stop learning. Always visit the Learning Center, you will never go wrong.

9.Be good to others in hub pages and you will rewarded.

As we say on hub pages “Quality is the King”. Yes it is and of course, “Quantity is the Queen”. Have both and you have a Residual Stream of income. When I say residual stream of income, I mean something that keeps making you money even when you go to sleep or on vacation.

I have about 144 international writers and authors who follow me on hub pages and my articles have been read over 1000 times (See on my hub page profile) receive wonderful fan mails and some even email my personally email address . As a result, my traffic keeps growing every day.

This is a simple income earning stream anyone who are keen to supplement their income can take it. This is not a GET RICH QUICK scheme so if you have that mentality, STOP READING HERE. Save your time and do something else.

Those who want to make a legitimate, online income and have love for writing, here’s an opportunity you can’t miss. The most Successful Huber makes around $8 000 a month…She is a stay home mama and full time Huber. Imagine just how much difference $100 (K250 if you are from PNG) can make your life to be? Or hell if you make $1000 a month. This is massive.

Success Formulae: High Quality & Quantity + High Traffic = High Income with Hub pages.

Success with hub pages doesn’t come over night and that you must know right from the start. That is why I always talk about having a success MINDSET. Let me repeat. Your success is surely dependent on the MINDSET you have. So if your mind is not set to make creating wealth online, you better start working on it.

You have to invest in your Mind Bank before it manifests in your real bank account. Set some goals as to how much you want to earn daily, weekly, monthly or annually and work to get there. Without set goals, you can easily go astray and never see the true earning potential of hub pages.

I wish you well in your online writing career

      It sure does take a lot of work to make writing on Hub Pages work. I work as a temporary worker, but I sure would like to be more successful as a writer on Hub Pages. I have to keep working at it. Very interesting and great advice.

      This was very informative hub. I loved how you explain what you are doing with hub and what you need to be doing or looking into before you start to write. Thanks so much for a great hub.
