My Earning Experience with Hub Pages-Powerful Lessons learnt in 2 years

Updated on February 13, 2013

It’s been two years since I started writing with Hub Pages. I was looking for some ways to earn passive income online. I was damn serious to at least make a break from what some call Rat Race. Hub Pages is small but to me as long as it’s a passive way of earning, it’s an asset. I have been slowly building my hub pages earning over the years. I am not surprised at my earnings now. The moment I understood the difference between and asset and liability by reading Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, my perception on my hub pages earning took a twist. I was going to only buy assets. Hub Pages was on asset. This is how Robert defined asset and liability. He said and asset put money into your pocket and a liability took money out of your pocket. Equipped with that knowledge I decided not to take money out of my Hub Page earning. By then I was well established in business and even get hired as a marketer so I had enough money to spend than to worry over Hub Pages earnings.

What happened after that was that I became an expert and credible freelance writer. I began coaching aspiring writers and still made good money. I ran seminars, one-on-one sessions, wrote an eBook, all made good bucks for me. But as I said, nothing came without sweat. Joining Hub pages was the best decision I had ever made. Maybe one day I’ll be earning $100 daily, which I strongly believe is possible. But I am happy with my handsome dollars these days. I went on for a long vacation at home and didn’t almost publish for a long time but was glad to see my earning still climbing every day.

Powerful lessons learnt

I wish I could give you the formula to earn $100 daily. I really wish I could. But I haven’t reached that level yet so if I did, I lie. That you must agree with me. So here I only share my experience to help you chart your future with Hub Pages. These lessons are powerful enough that I have made it my business to turn then to business not only in Hub Pages but in other areas of writing.

1. Be open to learning

The moment you say “I know it”, you command your mind to stop learning. You finish. Opportunities can bypass you easily. You became conservative and gradually become obsolete. World is moving fast and if you stop learning, you soon become historical figure living in 21st century. As a writer, you have to keep with the trend. That’s just my opinion. Hub Pages has more to offer, swallow your pride and learn from those who have been there before you. You will have your time, but learn first before you rise with a might force, no one can stop you.

2. Always test what you learn

I told you to be open to learning. Remember, not all that glitters is gold. It is your sole responsibility to test everything you learn from Hub Pages. What works for me or others may not work for you. But you must be willing to learn and then modify the steps to suit you. Asians are very good in doing this. They have mastered the art so well that they lead in global market.

3. Do you part by producing high quality hubs

This is your sole responsibility. No from Hub Pages will tell you what to do. Please take it upon yourself to self-discipline yourself and produce high quality hubs. Your hubs will market you as a professional writer. If you want to make it big, think big and write big…People can easily form a impression of you on your writing. So write as a professional. I sometimes write for pleasure but the bottom is to write intellectually and impress my readers so I can build a strong brand for myself. I am talking about future benefits.

4. Be part of the community

No man is an island. We need each other to be effective in Hub pages. There is no Law here that spells out this but again its human nature to treat well others who threat them well. That’s it. Threat everyone well. Refrain from abusing others. You know “You reap what you sow”. Be a good citizen of Hub pages and you will be glad you did.

5. Manage your time

All is not writing. All is not Hub pages. All isn’t money. There are times you must stop to smell the roses. Take time away from writing. After sometime away from writing, when I get back, I get blasted with ideas that I can write till midnight.

Ending remarks

Many more things I have learnt over the years but these are few I am sharing with you. Hope you learn as much as I so here in Hub pages.

      " If you want to make it big, think big and write big…" is a nice sentence.

      Sorry, in point 4 I think you want to type "treat" not "threat".

      I voted useful. Thanks.
