More Money on HubPages

Updated on June 29, 2013

Making More Money on HubPages

It is possible to make more money on HubPages. Those who read my previous articles may believe that the methods examined and detailed are the end of it. This is not so. You have to keep in mind that HubPages are simply web pages. They are your web pages! Within certain common sense and reasonable restrictions and limitations your HubPages are capable of doing very much what any web page can do.

Perhaps you don't have all the bells and whistles of having your own domain but, to be honest, these can be more of a hassle than a help. HubPages are improving all the time and it is any body's guess as to what they will offer you in the future. Remember that HubPages are free, and you CAN make money and you can make more money if you move on from the methods described here.

Affiliate Marketing is the way to go. The phrase itself sounds complicated and sounds like a lot of work. It isn't. Again it is a subject that I suggest that you read up on. Use HubPages search engine and look up 'Affiliate Marketing' and you will find everything you want to know. Go there before you go to Google. Google is good, brilliant even but using HubPages to read articles by Hubbers writing about Affiliate Marketing is going to give you more of an instant insight.

So What is Affiliate Marketing?- Quite simply it is advertising somebody elses product on their behalf. People read your Hub and think that the product is just what they are looking for and click on a link to that product. This link will take them to the site. If they then decide to purchase and actually buy the product then you will be paid commission on the sale. Some of these payments can be quite generous. Up to 75% in some cases.

You will of course have to become an affiliate of whatever organisation you are selling on behalf of. In most cases this is free so it is a win win situation. There are hundreds of organisations offering affiliate opportunities and many thousands of affiliate marketers. There are many already using HubPages. Have a trawl around and you will see them. It is all quite above board because HubPages allows you a couple of links to outside web pages. Read the rules!

It is a great opportunity for you to earn more because you could be earning from your Google Adsense, Amazon, and eBay already. Like I said. It is win win.

With only a little bit of editing you could even be adding an affiliate link into Hubs that you have already written. If you are writing for HubPages purely and simply to earn money then you should definitely be doing this.

Choose your affiliate. Make sure it is one which HubPages approves of.

Look through their products. Is there anything you could or would like to write a Hub about? You could write a new one today or adapt one which you previously published.

Give it a try. You will lose nothing. The game is not over yet. I will tell you how to earn even more money in 'Even More Money On HubPages'.

    sord87 - The thing is that people do exagerate. So if someone says that they are earning thousands a month from affiliate sales then they could be telling the truth or lying through their teeth. However it does no harm to have a go. It won't cost you and you may earn. If you don't join up, just like adsense, you will earn nothing.

    Austinstar - Sorry, I cannot help with the account cancelling. It must be there somewhere. It would probably do no harm if you just left it and allowed it to die a natural death. Don't take my word for it though.

    PayDot.com seems to be a way to sell products that you want to sell, not an affiliate promotion center like cj.com How do I cancel my new account there? I can't find any info about cancelling an account.

    justom - It is really a case of experimenting. Text will keep people on your pages longer and as they say 'a picture is worth a thousand words'....that could make for a very brief visit.

    Thanks Peter, I've only been doing hubs for a couple of weeks and am still trying to figure it all out. My hubs are more visual, should I try concentrating a bit more on writing to go along with the photos?

    Austinstar - Commission Junction has their own way of going about things. They don't even call an affiliate an affiliate but prefer to call them publishers or resellers. They also have quite an extensive document to read before you sign up. As you already belong to a ton of other programmes without problems it is probably best to avoid the one which does. Best of luck.

    What's the best way to incorporate Commission Junction with HP? I already belong to a ton of affiliate marketing, but it's hard to incorporate those links on HP. Thanks!
