If you enjoy writing then you should have a go.
Make Money Online By Writing Articles For Upfront Payment
There are four sites you should research and consider
- Demand Studios – Pays $15 for How To articles for the eHow website (Article Sweeps). Very demanding. Endless rewrites, often unnecessarily because editor is wrong. Article titles are awful and take at least six hours to write, complete with references. Will take most writers five days to complete first 1,000 word article. Insists on incorrect punctuation (AP Style). English writers have great difficulty with some of the rules, which ban perfectly correct grammatical structures
- Constant Content – Pay $25-$40 for an 800 word article. Excellent English necessary, but no ridiculous grammar rules. Article subjects and titles are reasonable
- Break Studios – Pay $8 for a short article that takes 15 minutes to write
- Text Brokers – Pays 1c-2c per word. A short 200 word article will only take 15 minutes to write, so $2-$4 for 15 minutes of writing
Make Money Online By Writing Articles For A Share Of Advertizing Income
Your earnings are proportional to the number of times people click on ads next to your articles. It is the website management’s job to place those articles for maximum effectiveness and writers have no control of that.
It is the writers’ job to write articles that will produce clicks and to promote those articles by linking to them. You cannot write about anything. The people most likely to click are those who are looking to make a purchase or those with an urgent need that your article satisfies.
This means that review articles or comparison articles produce a lot of clicks and that advice/repair type articles do better than information articles. Linking to your articles is a simple job. Sign on to Snipsley.com and TheInfoMine.com. Write 3 sentence posts for Snipsley and include your link. TheInfoMine ask you to make 250 word posts, remember to include one or two links in your post.
There are dozens of sites and most have at least one strong point. You need to research carefully into the different payment systems and rules for each site.
- Bukisa – Pay per view, total waste of time (0.3c per view)
- Wikinut – Pay per view, total waste of time (0.01p per view)
- Xomba – 50% Adsense clicks to your own Adsense account (Articles earn very little because of poor site design and lack of article promotion)
- EHow – Secret formula and Article Sweeps (Look up “eHow Article Sweeps” in Google. NEVER write for this site
- Squidoo – Advertizing revenue is averaged over the website and then redistributed according to a secret algorithm, which favors very popular articles at the expense of the least popular 25% of articles, which get nothing, even though there might have been clicks on ads in those articles
- HubPages – 60% advertizing clicks to your own Adsense account. Overly competitive atmosphere encouraged between writers
- InfoBarrel – 75-90% advertising clicks to your own Adsense account. Very easy to earn a 90% share. Unlimited signatures. In body links allowed directly to affiliate pages. Cooperative atmosphere encouraged and forum is superb, helpful, open and welcoming RECOMMENDED
