Business Tactics and Hubpages
Fear is used in business to keep employees and managers in line, keeping them doing their job and earning the business income and good reputations. Many employees work hard for fear of some sort of punishment such as cut pay and being fired. Although this may not seem like something that would help with Hubpages, there is a fear in some of us of being persecuted for bringing incorrect or offensive information to the table. You make money from Hubpages by giving information that readers will find informative. We make money from Hubpages based on how many referred readers are brought.
Think of it this way; If you have no readers, you have no money. That's a fear and a reality for some who try to make money from Hubpages. This is known in the business world as Theory X, created by Douglas McGregor, stating the average person doesn't wanna work and will avoid it if possible. People must be forced and threatened with consequences in order to have them accomplish goals.
Reward is something we all need to recognize when we attempt to make money from Hubpages. If you don't realize a reward, you can't make money from Hubpages. Theory Y, also developed by Mcgregor says people like working if they are rewarded for doing it. Recognize what your goals are; get a positive attitude towards your goal to make money from Hubpages, and continue to fight towards this dream.
To make money from Hubpages, you have to be motivated to do so. Whether it be sharing your wealth of knowledge or simply to make more money; having a motivational factor is the main reason you are doing what you do. It's like working for or owning a business.
