If you could tell a new hubber one thing, what would it be?
My advice would be: do not give up! The road to earnings is not a fast one but over time you will begin to see financial rewards.
I am interested to hear your advice for a new hubber. Thanks!
Watch and learn from the ones who have been doing this for awhile. Ask questions and listen. They know what they are talking about!
Write about what you have a passion for and don't focus on making money.
Write purely for the purpose of writing: share your thoughts, dreams, ideas, whatever they may be. If making money is your first goal here on Hubpages, then you are here for the wrong reasons.
Take criticism seriously. Just like I can't sing, some people should not write.
1. Learn all you can about how HP works from the Learning Center and the FAQ. 2. Edit, and edit again. 3. Be patient; hubs take up to six months (in some cases longer) to mature and earn money.
If I was to take your question very literally and stick to just one thing it would be: Go read everything in the Learning Center. Then follow up on those topics you either don't get or are not good at. The learning center is a great resource that covers everything you need to know.
My advice to a new writer here would be to concentrate on grammar and use spell check. I would advise against slapping an article together without proofreading it several times. There is no bigger turn off than misspelled words in a title or opening paragraph. No matter how catchy a title may be, I find it almost impossible to go further into a story if there are numerous spelling errors.
It is difficult to say one thing, but we are here to write so write your very best.
I would write welcome to the hubpages and try to write informative or amusing hubs that Google or advertisers would like.
The first things that came to my mind (patience...learning center) are already covered, so I would tell a new hubber to seek out a profitable niche and seek to provide truly awesome resources for people looking for info and products/services in that niche.
If a new hubber is feeling discouraged and is perhaps considering giving up, that implies (I think) that they are here to make money...and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that! Nobody judges the girl that served them coffee this morning...
"Oh...she acted all nice and said to have a nice day...but I'll bet she's just working here for the money..."
...some people serve food for a living, and some people write Internet articles for a living. It's all good. There's money to be made writing for HubPages...but they gotta understand that to be financially successful, they must approach hubbing as they would any other business.
If they want to make money, then they've got to provide the answers and solutions that searchers are looking for.
I’d say follow ChrityWrites But seriously, follow the right mentors who are there to advise and support you on your journey, don’t get disheartened if things don’t happen fast and always write well.

What is the best tip to offer a new hubber?
by Linda Bilyeu4 years ago
If making money wasn't an option on HubPages, would you still write for this site...No matter if you make pennies a day or dollars. This question isn't about how much money a hubber makes. I'm just curious how many...
