Let's say for example, you view your Google and/or Affiliates and your total was $23,801.82, what would you do with the money? Buy a new car, pay off loans, give it all to Origin, what?
Why is that what your payoff was for the month???? )
I did get a payout, but that's not it. I was just wondering what people would do if they saw that much money coming to them in a single month.
Ohhhh! Heck yeah I would take a nice long vaca, maybe pu the front deck on the house that I have been dreaming about for years now! Hmmm...And probably buy a bunch of lottos hopin to strike it big!
$23,000+ in a month? thats alot of money. i could buy alaska if i saved up for a few years!
Catchy title, it looks like I -- and many others will fall prey to it
On the subject itself: I would definately reinvest them on my writing career. Ads, inclusions...
I'd get my teeth whitened first. With all the nicotine and coffee I'm beginning to feel very stereotypically British lately.
i would spread the money to other Hubbers sho have been here at least over 9 months and who have 2 word nic names...
What about the single word people with 3 months under their belts? Do we get any kickbacks?
Mines Katie Did, go ahead Greek One feel free to call me Katie Did from this point out...
I would make sure that was going to be a continuing trend, then I would relocate to a beach and write for a living from besode the pool!
I would be doing the same thing, except I would swap the pool for an ocean.
I would take the money and invest it in real estate, maybe start my own investment group and we would buy up all the fixer upper brownstones in new york.
I would kick some of it back to the hubbers that have contributed to my success, get my teeth fixed, re invest in what I love to do and set up an environment where I could coach teens and young adults in order to set them up for their attaining their needs and wants, dreams and goals for their lives and the living of it.
Oh, and I would have some FUN and I would be able to contribute more to my own family!
I would pay off my car... The payoff is like $25something or another. That would definitely have my car paid off quick.
Well, I take that back. I would put half on my car and put the other half in savings. That would pay about half of my car off and then be a nice replacement in my savings for the down payment that I put on my car a few months ago.
W-05, You have so many Hubs, that I haven't searched through them all - may run a search later. Anyway, I'm interested in info about APBT's. My daughter and son-in-law recently got one. I'd like to know more about the breed and perhaps send them a link, if you have any articles they might like to read.
If you're out of debt, save it. If you have a good enough emergenct fund, invest it. Spending money when money can make you money is ludicrous.
Yup, I was baited into this topic thinking you achieved that.
I'll decide when I get there. Planning to do this before the end of this year
Everyone pretty much stole my answer, but yeah...I would throw it all into a writing career and live on the beach! Sounds like paradise to me!
I think I would invest most of it in my internet career(websites etc.)
I will spend it in the promotion of my newly created website for open use.
What does that dot mark(.82) doing in $23,801.82
the dot is to indicate cents in American money. "$23,801.82" is read as "twenty-three thousand, eight hundred and one dollars and eighty-two cents." By the way, a lot of us almost believed that the poster was telling about an actual payout. She was being hypothetical!
I know for sure it's "he". Shhh, don't tell anybody
Oh, the embarrassment.
I actually first wrote "He," changed it to "S/he," then decided that the turtleneck style of the shirt in his avatar looked more like what I might expect for a woman. If only I had first checked out his Hub titles...........I might still be waffling!
Thanks for the clarification. (I won't tell unless someone asks.)
I'd wait for a few more checks like that to roll in, pay off the mortgage, buy the bigger property I want with an annex attach and start mum+baby foster placements - that's my dream, its just gonna take me a while to get there
Almost 24K in a month? I'd spend a bit just for "live for today" extravagance, buy some nice stuff for my family and friends and maybe throw a party and make sure everyone had an outstanding time. Whatever I spend on this, an equal amount goes to charity.
The rest of it goes into savings and I get back to work with a giddy smile on my face.
Wow I am now in India for a few years and that much amount of money is a years worth of salary. Just imagine. But yes you are correct it is better to spend wisely and that will mean spending something now and rest save it for retirement years;-)
I would take the money, and go to school to learn how in the heck to do all of this online stuff, ugh...
But then, if I'd already earned THAT much money, then I must've already learned it all, right?
Is that what you call a paradox???
Referring to earlier kickback qualifications...what about single-word names that have been here over two years? Sounds fair!
I was going to say that I would throw it straight into our house savings account, but that's actually 20% down on the 35 acres outside of town we've been eyeing, so I'd be off to the bank to talk to them. Of course, subsequent payouts of similar size would be awesome so we could develop the land into a home place that much faster, but still .
This is really lame. It is just like saying what if you win the lottery. You spend all day dreaming about getting free money instead of actually doing some work to get money.
Yeah, except that for many people $11 million or something is a very uncomfortable amount and they wouldn't have any clue what to do with it, while just under $24K is easily conceivable for a lot of people and not enough to affect a complete lifestyle change. That said, I agree with you, I need to get back to work .
Awww, you're no fun!
Sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy life, and dream a little...
Retire from work if that was every month....
Otherwise.. build a swimming pool...
None of you seem to appreciated the need to pay a large amount of tax on this sum?
If you earnt this each month in the UK, you could expect most of it to be taxed at 40%, with some of it taxed at 50%!!
How much of this would be taken in tax in the US?
It would be taxed based on whatever income bracket it put you into at the end of the year. So 24k*12+(whatever normal income you may have). Probably close to 40-45% if you were to look at the charts. Even a net pay of 14k a month would be nice.
Here in my country, that amount is like 1 million, which will be, more or less, taxed at 32%.
Have to agree with dcladesigns, 680k is still very nice.
Answer to the OP, save up to buy a house and lot.
Origin, you been spying my account????? that is exactly what I got last month......
oh damn.....*kicks nearby bucket which is just handy being in his computer room*
wrong reality....... I didn't earn that amount
SERIOUSLY though, I would be providing most of it to my family and siblings and those I care dearly, there doing it tough, so I would help out all that I can.
Maybe save it for my family's future, my future sons and daughters and for my wife.
Only $23,801.82 ???
I'd be wondering why it was such a slow month
I probably wouldn't do anything with it except just put it in a bank for now. Then I'd look forward to next month's check.
Put it towards college for my Master's~whenever that happens.
I'll share it in orphanage and save it for the future of my family.
I would reinvest it and build an empire that would dwarf Buffet and Gates
All kidding aside, I would take my family on a well deserved vacation ..............
Retire! Haha maybe not but probably invest like three-fourths of it and then take a small vacation and buy some new household appliances.
Pay my college loans and insurance - and pay for special theme park tickets if I earn a lot more than that!
Holy crap, that's a lot of money. I would clear up my debt and buy a new car.
I would bank it, and wait to see how much next months payout was, then I could decide where the cash flow would be used to make the best returns.
If it was steady every month at over 23,000 I would sell my business, but continue to write. Probably just write car stuff and limericks.
Sorry Origin, as much as I'd like to ... I would indulge my horrendous shoe habit - which I know is sad - but there you are.

Can I?I have a couple of smaller accounts. As Amazon currently operates, my earnings go into one pot. From what I can understand, that won't happen once HP take over my Amazon. Or am I wrong?If I'm not, why not? I am going to lose out as it is, and I can't see the separation of my HP accounts being...

I only have $5 to go to reach payout for the first time. It took 2 years but I really don't count the first year because I only had 5 hubs that sat for a year so I figured it took about 1 year to reach payout. Is it true after your first payout your next payout comes quicker?

I just wrote a hub on making money with HubPages but wanted to make sure it's ok before publishing. I know you are not supposed to mention what you are earning on HP, but is it ok to use titles like 'How To Earn $1000 per month on Hubpages', or 'How To Make $1 Million On Hubpages'? I don't...

For me October has been the best Adsense month to date - will have made payout in one month for the first time. Yeay!!!Amazon has had the most amount of sales, but not the highest value, month yet (will be hard to top the $2500 diamond ring in June!!).Hope you have all had a great October...

How much time did you spend to earn your first $50 pay out?I am referring to the Hubpages ad program.
by Rahul Parashar 6 years ago
I was wondering how much people actually earn on HubPages through HubPages ads program? Does it produces better results than AdSense? How much hubs and tgime does it take to start earning? Yeah, I know, so many questions, but I really need to know the answers. Thanks in advance for answering it.
