It's becoming more clear that the internet is the place to be. I'm on a venture to make a decent (meaning the income of my full time job and more) living online. Give me your best advice. What tools should I use (if any)? What programs are good (so that I can start reviewing)? What do you suggest?
Best advice is to read or reread everything in the HubPages Help Center, read and/or reread every forum thread related to earning money and making a living online, read or reread every Hub related to the topic, and then ask specific questions about what you want to know after researching whether those questions have been asked and answered many times already.
BTW - Welcome to HubPages!
Thanks. Hubpages does have some very useful info. I've learned some for doing the things you've mentioned above. I guess what I'm looking for are some good programs to look into or some e-book recommendations. Something to kinda help me along as I go. I'm new t this whole thing and would like something to refer to.
Here are a few books (real books!) I would recommend:
"Inbound Marketing: Get found using google....."
"Don't Make me think: A common sense guide to web usability"
"Web Copy that sells: The revolutionary formula....."
(Feel free to buy them through one of amazon links )
Then look into buying micro niche finder or market samurai software.
You'll need to give quite a lot of thought to what your niche or niches are going to be. What topics can you write a lot about that don't have too much competition?
Have you ever heard of remote viewing ?
Many have this capability, they just don't don't refine to it
Online business is Great, specially with Good products
1. Find a niche or program that is easy. I found one that is easy, unique, has a low cost start-up and is profitable. You can see it in my site.
2. Set-up a simple design blog. Preferably use Wordpress. You can get a free-hosted site and domain to begin also you can see on my site.
3. Find a profit center or product to promote.
4. Create content based on your niche.
5. Post that content.
6. You'll need to build links to your site.
7. Post for more traffic.
8. Build a list for more profits.
I've found making money for yourself first, without recruiting helps your Psyche and your pocket-book. It also helps when you want to refer others, because you know it's profitable.
Don't make me think is good if you have your own websites/blogs, but not very relevant for article sites.
I would have to say that challenge.co is the best website to start with. Learn all about internet marketing. All go through the hubs written on making money at hubpages.Some real gems here.
I think you need to do some extensive research over the net and there are plenty of online business ideas which can help you to earn handsomely.
That's exactly what I "continued" to do...I found a really good free e-book about making money online

It from a very successful online affiliate marketer.
My long term goal is to write quality hubs that gets a decent income from ads. Then link my Hubs to my blogs to enhance both my blog and my hub's income. I would also use social bookmarking sites like Digg and social networking sites like Facebook or twitter to promote my sites. I would eventually want to create a website if everything goes well. I am not sure if it is a good plan but it is a start.
I would recommend whole heartedly looking into search engine optimization, known as SEO. I learned all of my techniques from thekeywordacademy.com, although it's not entirely free, there is a free trial membership you can cancel. I would not recommend this if I hadn't already tried it myself. I just started my hub account less than a week ago, with only 7 or 8 hubs and I'm already projecting money estimates in Google Adsense through these practices. I urge you to look into it and I promise it will work for you.

I'm exploring to this whole hub concept... is it really worth all the hassle and uncertainty of writing/working for yourself online or do you think it's better to just get a real brick-and-mortar job?

Or at least enough to pay the bills?

Hi, I'm new here and I am wondering what advice you would give based on your own experiences?
by Barbara Badder7 years ago
I'm curious what the best advice you would give someone new to Hubpages. I've read lots of advice in the hubs, but please share what you think is important.

I was wondering if anyone makes enough money on HubPages alone to make it their full time or only job?

My mother taught me to keep good records - I have kept a journal for most of my married life and have journals of both of my grandmother's and my mother's lives. They are very precious to me. What about you? What did...
