How do I make money writing articles???

69 replies
Hello there warriors,

I've been surfing around in this website for sometime now. There is a lot of information on internet marketing and I've been trying to soak up as much as I can. It's been great learning. But I must take action now, but I'm a little confused. I want start earning writing articles but I don't know where to start.
Can you fellow warriors give me some tips on this issue?

Thanks! :-)

    When you say you want to start by writing articles, do you mean by doing something like blogging or being a ghostwriter, where you do research and write content for other marketers? If you're interested in blogging, you might want to check out Unstoppable Affiliate by Andrew Hansen and Josh Stanton. If you're interested in becoming a ghostwriter, I suggest Ghostwriting Cash by Tiffany Dow and Craig Decorcy.

    Good luck,
    Joey

      Hi,

      I am also new here.
      I fortunately read your answer which was perfectly fit for my question. However, do you think you can tell which of these two would be more...profitable? Blogging or ghostwriting. I am not familiar with what ghostwriting really is about yet.

      Thanks,
      Sue

    Try Squidoo, A great place to get started into the freelancing world and writing for an income. Squidoo is a place where you can write about any topic you feel comfortable and you get paid off of royalties from it. You also get a cut from the Ads and Amazon products you sell from it.

    I write for squidoo and love every minute of it. I love having the freedom of writing about any topic I feel fits. I sometimes write about my hobbies and when pay day comes around its always worth it. If you want to know more about me click here.

      Think about this carefully. Do you really want to make money writing articles? It's not high paying and can get tedious fast. You're much better off trying to make money from an alternate way, not just trying to spend half an hour for $4.

      If you really want to write, then I'd suggest creating your own Wordpress blog / site - buy a domain and start writing. It'll take time but you should be able to make more if you've got a good brand and traffic from people who genuinely wants to read your posts.

    You can also try ehow or hubpages, they are great sites as well to write articles for. My suggestion would be to google it, if you haven't already and you will be surprised at how many sites there are that you can write for and make money with.

      WRONG!
      $3-$5 is by no means a standard and there are no standards.

      Op, do not let anyone fool you. As a matter fact there are people on here who make as much as $50-$100 just to write an article and you know what? You would hardly find people that will pay you that much on here.

      Do not go on enslaving yourself because it's really going to be hard once you start. I will dig up a thread for you to take a look and see what I mean.

      Chris, lazy writers are not good, dumping spun material is not good. But for $3-5 for 500 words, you get what you pay for!

        I agree with the response above.

        I don't know how $3-5 dollars became the "standard" price for 500 words or original writing.

        It takes up to an hour to research and write 500 quality words. To make a decent wage, an American or British "writer" would have to compose at least three of these articles an hour.

        The only way to do that is to be lazy, do no to very little research, write top-of-your-head material, spin content with a program, or use other blackhat methods such as stealing foreign language articles and then translating them with google (use this idea if you want, it produces garbage, but you can sell it to people looking for ultra-cheap content).

        Good writing takes time and effort.

      No, it isn't! Who told you that?

      I'm halfway through writing an article that will pay me $100. I usually write several like that every day, and that's really the bottom end of well paid writing. There are plenty of people who earn a lot more than that through their writing.

      When you market yourself, there is no "standard price." There is only the price you place on your worth.

        It's falling on deaf ears. Very, very few (if any at all) don't realize this until they are already out of business. Even then it's not a guarantee. They'll blame Google for not liking their "great" keyword relevant content :rolleyes:.

      I wouldn't waste my time writing an article for $5.00. This could explain why you're having a difficult time finding a good writer.

      Whose standard? There is no standard price for article writing.
      • There's the idiotic price of $3 to $5 for 500 words
      • There's the sensible price of $50 to $100 for 500 words
      • There's the much more sensible price of $100 and up for 500 words.
      Why would anyone want to be limited to the idiotic price?

      Why get paid once for one article when you can get paid multiple times?

      Create a simple PLR license and offer the article on the cheap...then post it for sale on multiple sources.

    These threads never fail to blow my mind. Why, in heaven's name would you work for slave wages? Why do so many people recommend the sites that screw you royally? You'd get better pay at McDonald's.

    Do you really want to make money from writing? I mean, real money, such as $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more per article? Then PM me and let me help you. I'm a professional freelance writer with 14 years of experience. I've been published over 600 times. I've earned as low as $30K on the low end and as high as $100K on the high end. I have a formula that works and I can show you what you need to know.

      I don't recommend freelancing, but that's just me. I don't like to sell articles just because I put together something. I want to get paid for the QUALITY not QUANTITY. So I recommend you join a network marketing company and start writing articles that back-link to your capture page. Especially on GoArticles and Ezine, you will get lots of traffic, and possibly leads if you do a good signature box!

      freelancewriting - I am new here so I am not able to send PM's. I am very interested in your formula and would love your help with getting my freelance career off the ground. Is it possible for you to PM me?

      Also, just to add to the conversation, I write for a content mill (bottom rung of the freelance ladder) and I am paid much, much more than $5 per 500 word article. I would suggest running in the other direction if someone offers you that insulting fee!

          I was doing good enough writing sales letters on fiverr that I quit. I didn't have time to do my own stuff which made me more money.

          I increased my price, increased my time then got more sales. I'd forgotten about the old sales-psychology theory. If it costs more and takes longer to get it must be better lol. I finally just suspended the gig.

    OK, there is a lot of advice on here, you're right but listen to the Warriors - there are so many people that have helped me out! Start by doing these 2 things:

    1) Sign up to micro job sites (Fiverr, Fourerr, GigBucks, Fivesquids, Fiversworld etc).
    2) Sign up to freelancing sites (Elance, Guru, oDesk, Freelancer etc)

    Once you've set up one profile, you've got a profile for the rest of the sites - just make sure your profile includes a good portfolio of your writing style!

    On the micro job sites, look in the "Request/Suggest Gigs" section to see if you can help people seeking for article writers.

    Promote your profiles on Facebook/Twitter to get your name out there...

    Hope this helps

      The important mistake to avoid, Sean, as so many very successful writers keep explaining every single time this kind of discussion arises on the board, for all the reasons detailed in this post, is starting off at a low price in order to get customers who are attracted by low prices, "intending to increase your prices later".

      As so many have learned to their cost, that doesn't typically work at all, and the reasons why it doesn't are actually not that difficult to understand, once you appreciate how the market works.

    You can work on freelancing sites like odesk and scriptlance . but the preffered way is to make a website containing your articles . you can generate lots of traffic to your website and It has been proven that "traffic = money" you can then earn lots of money by selling your products or affilate programs

    There is a new service that is out called Hirewriter - they have only just started posting jobs, but maybe good to get your profile on there and start to look for writing work. Of course, you don't earn a lot as a beginner, but once you have written a few and your ratings go up, you will get more work.

    If you really like writing then you have the hardest part of Internet Marketing covered. Why don't you use your writing skills to build niche sites or do some affiliate marketing?

    Holly crap! So many responses! ... Thank you very (times infinity) much. All you guys suggestions have been very very helpful. I'm looking over this thread after a long time! Ok so here is my progress case study:

    I joined iWriter and I've been writing articles for sometime now. And a lot of you warriors are right. Content mill writing sucks! Writing 500 to 1000 word articles for $10 to $12 isn't worth it! I got frustrated after writing for 2 months! ... I did manage to make a few hundred bucks though. But, it wasn't close to what I was expecting to make. God! I was naive. I've decided to pursue copywriting in Febuary 2013. As of writing this..... I'm actually studying copywriting and have progress quite well. I'm taking AWAI Accelerated Program and I'm grasping the basics pretty well. Alongside I've enrolled in Copyhour course this month. And this course has really skyrocketed my learning curve. Geee, I'm already using 'power words'. hahaha

    Again, I thank you all for your time and exceptional feedback... I can't imagine anybody failing at this, with such active members giving almost immediate feedback.

    Keep rocking warriors,
    Salman

    You have to put yourself out there write some samples and offer to hand them out to people for a review. Get a WSO thread and hand out review copies. Post to article sites contact webmasters and offer to write for them on a trial basis. Call local SEO shops ask if they need any content for client sites.

      Here's a better idea: decide on the price you want to be paid per article, then find the customer who will pay you that price.

      It really can be that simple. If you want $50 per article, then find the customers who will pay that price. There are plenty of them. There may be more who think $5 or less is "the going rate," but that doesn't mean you can't find customer at higher rates.

      Handing out reviews and offering to write on a trial basis is a road to nowhere. It's surprisingly easy to rise above all that.

    Set up a website, post articles as your portfolio there, and then advertise your services in forums like WF or start a thread in the Warriors for Hire section. Be diligent, write high quality articles, don't be late in your submissions and always maintain excellent customer service. You'd make a killing.

    Also try googling "staff writer" to find blogs that offer staff writing positions so you'll find a article writing job that repeats every week or month!

    The question is are you any good. You need to prove your a good writer then you'll get clients.

    I've been looking for a good writer for weeks the problem is a lot are lazy and try to dump spun material.

    good luck,
    Chris
    Sometimes I feel like my prices are criminally low, but I would never in a thousand years write an article for a lousy three to five bucks. It's not worth the time and effort, and it's not worth dealing with the type of clients that are too cheap to fork out the extra dough for quality writing.

    It really comes down to whether or not you have the chops. In most cases, these five dollar article writers aren't writers at all. They're typists.
