What is a realistic goal for profit on hub pages?
I understand that quality hubs, time, and using the assets such as the learning center are important. Just curious if you could tell me what a realistic number would be for generating some miniscule profit here. I am brand new and enjoy hub pages but question if my only having earned one cent in several weeks being new, is the norm.
It's possible to earn much more than that, but a bit of study in HOW to do so might be required. There are many Hubs and forum posts on this general topic--most of them well worth the time needed for at least a quick looksee.
I make much less than some do with far fewer Hubs than I've written (over 700), but I understand why: The VOICE provided by this platform (HubPages) is more important to me than the INCOME, and my work reflects that.
That said, the residual effect is very much worthwhile. I wrote something like 69 Hubs in early 2008 and then more or less forgot about them. Some months later, a check from Google suddenly showed up in the mail...and got my attention.
Hello David, I have been in and out of Hubpages for a couple of years now. It has never really returned what one might call a profit.
It might take several tens of hours to come up with, research and write a hub.
So if by profit you mean earn enough to live, I would say it will take time abd talent to be successful that way. For me I love the sharing of ideas, knowledge and practicing my writing skills. For me therefore the profit is the fun I get out of it. I will probably never reach the level of writing for a living, so any cash earned here is a bonus and too unreliable to consider making a real profit in traditional accounting terms.
Having said that, if you seek those profits, it is a case of study and hard work and commitment over the long term. A lot like a regular job really with no finite payoff dates.Everyone will have different timings from their own experiences..
All the best.
For a newbie I think that's normal until you discover some tricks of how to earn in a specified way, but posting hubs are fun if you share your thoughts honestly.
