How can i make money writing articles?

33 replies
Hi guys,

I have been trying to build adsense websites with little bit of content on them. They have been doing okay but not much income is rolling in.

I need money. And i need it fast. I know that offering my services here is the best option to make some regular money.

I would like some suggestions from you on what's the best way to start finding article writing jobs online? I am looking for long term article writing job and preferably work on a project.

Let me know!

I would have loved to write for sites like Associated Content.com which pay upfront. But they don't accept Non-Us writers for the payment.

Can you suggest anything else?

    You can try Xomba. It's tied to your Adsense account. Apart from that, try getting freelance gigs at freelancer.com, elance or just go look around fiverr.com or brighttask.com

        i dont mean copying the article but rrewrite the article in my own words from the idea of the article. i ensure the title is close to being the same as this will ensure my article appears as being related to the original article.
        i use a tool called article rewrite and i churn massive numbers of articles
        You aren't writing - you are spinning the work of others, taking credit for it and violating copyright. If people pay you for that - they are being ripped off in my opinion.

        I'm really tired of seeing members here saying it's ok to find an article on a topic, rewrite it and sell it to someone as an "original". Good writers do their own research and write their own articles from scratch.

        And people wonder why some writers charge so little....

    There are various forums that require articles on a daily basis or you can work as a freelance writer also. If you want some forum names then you can message me personally.

    Rather than just throw out a site name to recommend, I HIGHLY encourage you to conduct research into these elements of a potential writing platform.

    1) Ad revenue share arrangement/payment scheme
    2) Responsiveness of Ownership
    3) Earnings' potential. A site could offer 100% revenue share, BUT, if they don't have decent search engine authority and ownership that KNOW what they are doing with testing and optimizing advertising, you may earn very little....unless you are applying a hit-or-miss strategy with a ton of volume of articles.
    4) Growth trends/Bounce Rate %/etc
    5) Integrated Community forum functionality. This allows writers to have a place where they feel supported, and where their opinions and suggestions are heard.
    6) How do they treat the integration of affiliate links? Contextual? Where is the placement of their resource/author's bio box? Does it lend to favoring the writer? What are the editorial guidelines regarding affiliate links?
    7) I could go on and on....if you want me to expound, I can.

    Unfortunately, not to disregard the comments of others here, but some recommended sites may offer a high revenue share, however, they may have so little search engine authority that it will be a hair pulling endeavor to gain visibility of your articles (so that they can earn).

      From my experience, mturk.com has worked. All you have to do is sign up for a free account as a worker, and you will find many tasks that you can take on. The whole process is pretty simple and straightforward.

    Indeed, as others have said, you can write and put together good articles and sell here, either as fresh articles or PLR articles in the WSO section. You can also list your article writing expertise in the "Warrior for Hire" section. And you can put together 10+ articles on good topics/niches and quickly slap up a website with the articles and sell the website as a complete website in the "Complete Websites Sale" section of forum. Lots of ways to make money with your skills Kingsley

    If you use mturk, watch out for the time frame, many of the jobs have very little time allowed for completion and you are penalize for incomplete assignments. I tried it, but I couldn't complete the jobs I tried in the time span allotted. They got free work, I got squat.

    Maybe it was just me, and it was several years ago.

    Good Luck and properity to all

      If you are a good writer you CAN make money writing articles. You can place an ad on the Warrior For Hire section and offer a discount to fellow warriors! PLR's are a great idea also. Whatever route you end up going, Good Luck!

    You may want to offer product research along with article writing. Allot writers do not offer this and just write a article that sometimes do not make sense. Offer a side package where you ill research what their website, product, or service is and then write a highly related article based on what you have researched.

    Pays for your time in researching along with articles that you are writing. Just a idea.

    Check out www.constant-content.com.

    Constant-Content is like a marketplace where buyers can purchase articles.

    You need to be able to write without any grammar or spelling errors because they've got editors who proofreads every article that you submit.

    CC (Constant-Content) is great because you can set the price on your articles and sooner or later every article will get sold.

      Above all, why don't you utilize your skill for yourself? Do some keyword research, throw up one article per day, build a list and make luck with that list...

      IMO that's the most effective way to go.

    Yuo could try mixing it up a little. Write some articles yourself to promote affiliate products. Then carry on with your Adsense but try focusing on 'high paying' keywords. On top of that you could try obtaining a handful of clients to write articles for. Some people do very well writing for a small number of clients. Then find out which is working out best for you and steer more towards that.
