Hello, I've seen a lot of talk about article writing on these forums. It seems like a nifty new method I can try to make some more money. Can anyone give me some more information as to how this works? And possibly show me?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply, however that looks more complicated than just writing an article and getting paid for it.

Any simpler method?

Give an article writing service on Buy/Sell forums? I'm a member of DP forums also and there people make a lot of money by giving article writing services. Some even sell pre written articles in bulk. I think in this forum's buy and sell section also you can offer writing services and look for clients. Most successful IMers outsource the article writing part.

You can make money:

1. By writing the articles yourself. You can sign up with Fiverr, Freelancer, VWorker, iWriter, Guru or any other such platform and post your offerings there. Advertise yourself and make a name for yourself.

2. You can resell content. You can create ads on the mentioned sites but instead of writing the content yourself, you can hire someone to do it for you. Many people have started article-writing companies, but the competition is pretty stiff still. So I would make sure to offer something extra and unique in order to be seen and rise above the competition.

3. Article marketing - one of the traditional methods to make money online. Write articles and submit them to article directories - simple as that. Make sure the articles are SEO-optimized and your affiliate links in your signature. You can promote any kind of product this, be it an info product with Clickbank, a tangible product with Amazon or any other affiliate program out there.

Best of luck!

Well, there are really two ways you can do article writing: write for free sites and they pay you whatever they want to, which the majority of the time isn't a lot. They money is "spent" by the time you get it because they pay so cheaply. Your second option is to write for clients. It's a long-term business model in which you can get paid upfront (in whole or part). People are always looking for quality content.

The thing about making real money online is that there is a learning curve to every business model, but becoming a ghostwriter usually takes less time because lots of people already have many of the skills they need. If you're serious about article writing, you might want to check out Ghostwriting Cash by Tiffany Dow and Craig Decorcy.

Good luck,

There are a number of ways to go about doing it. You could join outsourcing sites such as oDesk, iWriter, The Content Authority. A good way of showcasing your skills is to build a blog to showcase your talent.

Or you could sell your writing services on forums such as this one!

Alternatively you could write articles on Squidoo or Hubpages for example and earn through adsense and affiliate commissions.

Why not try all 3 methods and see which works best for you.

It's easy to write an article. It's hard to find customers....

I write articles on fiverr in my spare time for a bit of extra cash. It is a pretty good gig once you get the ball rolling.

I find that if you sit down and set your mind to it you can make a not bad hourly rate once you get into the flow of writing.

However it does require that you have a good words per minute typing speed and can put together good articles. It has only been a part time thing for me but since January I've earnt almost $4000 doing article writing. So there is money to be made if you can provide a good service for people.

Article writing is a very popular form of freelance writing. It has attracted a lot of people. To learn a few tips about article writing click on the link below. It is a recent contributory thread I made to a post on this forum.

Main- internet-marketing-forum/How do you write good articles?

Though article writing is popular, it is, generally speaking, one of the lowest paid job. Writing an article for an hour make many people get just a dollar! Try to see offers on freelance writing sites to confirm what I am talking about.

A few better paying sites are highly competitive.

I suggest you sign up to some freelance websites like oDesk and Elance. There you will find work at different price points, however the majority of assignments pay very little.

Anyhow they are decent places to start where you can work on your writing skills whilst getting paid, even if it is peanuts.

Here's what I recommend you to do.

1. Visit the 'Warriors For Hire.'
2. Scroll all the way to the bottom.
3. Find the 'Display Options' area.
4. Sort the threads by selecting the prefix 'Content.'
5. Hit the 'Show Threads' button.
6. All threads that offer content writing services will appear.

You may want to touch-base with the providers themselves or observe what they do and how they do it. I hope this helps.

Xamder it depends on what direction you want to go. The link that RougeOne shared seems like a good solid plan. Yeah it's more work than just writing articles and making money off of them, this is more of a targeted article business.

If that's not your bag and you just want to write, take a look at some of the freelance sites (elance, fiver etc...) or write up an add for the Warriors For Hire forum. People are looking for writers all the time and the pay can be quite good. Articles, reviews, ghostwriting, the list goes on. You also may want to put up a website of your own to peddle your services.

Do you want fast and easy or in depth and more involved. Both will require work as there is no magic bullet but both can pay quite well. You just have to decide which route is best for you.

Xander,

The best advice I can give you about article marketing is:

1. Write good content. I see some people use this article section for spam. I open their articles and it is less then 200 words and it looks like a big crap. So make sure that your articles are not less then 300 words and that you really create value.

2. You must write a minimum of 1 article per day every day with out stopping. Too many people just write a few articles and think that they will get a ton of traffic for little work. I know some guys and ladies who wrote 100's and 1000's of articles and this in their only source of traffic.

This requires consistency.

Check out the services offering article writing at the "warriors for hire section". See how they lay their services to the people. Check if you are able to work on those services. Make your own thread and make it live by paying $20. Wait for your first order, and make sure to come up with a good article to get the ball rolling. Good Luck!

By the way, make sure that you maintain and keep your clients' trust...that's the most important factor you have to keep at all times.

Article marketing is a GREAT way to get more traffic and quick sales.

But you want to do it the right way, not the wrong way (submitting to useless article directories)

Instead, do what's called "guest posting".

Find top authority websites with tons of traffic, write an article, and contact these top sites asking them to post it on their site.

Most high traffic blog sites accept guest posts and if you can land one you can get hundreds of qualified visitors in a very short period of time.

Then you simply rinse and repeat.

You can also write articles as a service like many are recommending. It's hard work since people don't like to pay much for articles (and yet they expect great quality articles!!!) But if you're willing to do the work you can get good money doing it.

My sister asked me how she could make quick cash once and I set up a Fiverr gig for writing articles. She made 80 bucks in a week but quit since she was sick of writing articles on very random topics.

Offer a service on fiverr about your article writing service. Sign up for freelance writing sites. Do a Warrior for Hire gig. Have your own freelance writing website and promote it all over the place.
