two weeks and $275.44

24 replies
Well, thought I would just update you on an experiment I was running. Basically I wanted to see if it was possible to make money writing articles, and so far I am at $275.44. so far, it is also been about probably 40 hours work (but which also includes research, and figuring out this industry). So that is about $6.89 per hour (at the moment) :-) but, I guess it does go to show that someone totally new to article writing can generate income.

Cheers!

    Johnathan -

    Congrats on taking action and $275 is a whole lot better than $0. Kudos to you and hope that you'll update again.

      Well, you've now overcome the hurdle of not having any money to start the business. If most people spent less time whining and taking action, like you did, then they'd all have the money they need to get started.

      With that 275, you can have a few sites up and running, or you can buy some WSO's. Either way, now you've got options.

    Jonathan that is a really great start. It has taken me a couple months to make $60 on Clickbank. I must be missing something that you already know.

    That's great!

    The next step is to create a website and expand on what you know to be most the most profitable niche/product you wrote articles on.

    Thanks for the comments. Well, actually I know there is 'more' coming. But just wanted to do the update as for the 'exact' amount that I have so far... Of course, I want to get past the $6.89/hour point. But my 'effective' hourly income is slightly higher than it was on my last update for 1 week ($102.5/20 hours work), so at about $5.12/hour at that time.

    Hi Tom,

    I think so far, I've written about the equivalent of about 60-70 articles...

    Good job so far... keep pumping out those articles. Now make some squidoo lenses, hub pages, and submit to other directories. You can also turn your articles into videos by just reading them with power point slide.

    Keep up the good work.

      Johnathan,

      Congratulations!

      My question to you is how are you using the articles? Are you selling them, using them for affiliate products or your own, or what way are you making money with them? The reason I ask is....if you're doing anything with them besides just selling them your income will go up over time automatically.

    Hi Jonathan,

    here is a little tip that may help you.

    focus your articles for search engine terms that get lots off traffic but have less than 200K results.

    what this will do is use the power of the article site to rank for that term and get you traffic. there are thousands and thousands of words like this.

    i found 50 yesterday that get over 1000 searches per day and have less than 90K competition on the engines.

    then "optimize" your article for the term.

    your hourly will go way way way up

    Dang, how long did it take you to do that?

    I just started up a new project on ebay, so far $1,624.79 in sales, for 90 minutes of listing the products, products sold in the first 4 days.

    I'm not trying to offer you anything, but, dude... are you really worth $7 p/h, you know, you could get more than that working at Mac Donalds ...

    I came across a place called SCM Wholesale Drop Shippers. Check them out, then flog the info on eBay... you'll make a killing.

    Hi Charles,

    at the moment, I am selling the articles (I wanted to see how it worked out/how feasible it is as an income stream). So far, about $6.89/hour However, I will probably start writing my own articles in the near future so I can use them.

    I also wanted to see whether it was possible for someone completely 'new' within this industry (specifically article writing) to make an income... because some ppl said they were finding it challenging... so far, again, it seems possible at $6.89/hour, so so far, I would say if you like the comfort of your own home instead of a burger flipping job, then this is a good way...

    I am working on something else (with of course my own work/not sold), and google adsense has generated about $0.25/day ... so, it's interesting...

      Loz,

      Do you actually sell on eBay? The reason I asked is I went to SCM and the prices they have on the items I sell on eBay are very high and you'd be lucky to sell them at 1/2 the price.

      Read your post again and see where you sell on eBay! $1600.00 in 4 days huh? Hell, you do better than I do usually in that amount of time. I'm a powerseller, you must be a platinum powerseller with those kind of sales.

        I don't want to hi-jack this thread of John's, so if you want to talk about it via PM or start a new post "Hey Loz - What's the Score on SCM via Ebay"

        and I'll be happy to share some info.

    Aksloz: thx for the feedback... are you selling articles on e-bay? or what exactly is it you are selling, and that is 1.6k net? (I haven't really used e-bay before -- i've looked at it, but it looked like it was crammed with stuff and might be difficult to sell anything on it...)

      nah dude, I have my own software that re-writes articles and will have a content syndication service popping its head out soon that will spit out a crap load of articles to your blog or normal website so it builds automatically.

      BUT YOU KNOW WHAT...

      You will be surprised... from what I am seeing, anything is possible. I mean, how many people these days use E-bay, or Amazon? LOTS right?

      How many people type that phrase in on those sites and move on cos they couldn't find what they were looking for cos they was not entering the right phrase... you might find some items listed.

      Here's a scoop
      http://shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=art...cles&_osacat=0

      I'm probably letting the cat out of the bag here, cos this is something that I was thinking of doing my self.


      4,523 results found for articles


      Say no more..

      Any site that gets over 1 million hits per day, is definitely worth seeking
