How do you earn money writing online?
This is the question, there are a few ways actually
- Blogging- you can set up your very own blog like this one sign up with google adsense and that is it! However that is not it you must produce good quality content, or at least content that makes people want to come back and read it once in a while and maybe click on an advert or 2.
- Content writing for third party sites
You can sign up with certain sites such as http://www.xomba.com/ or http://www.triond.com/ you can write about virtually anything, promote your work online and earn money. With Triond you earn from the amount views you get and recently they have added an adsense element to the site where you can earn money if people click on the adsense adverts in your articles. You get paid through paypal and if you really put the work in with Triond you can make alot of money. With Xomba you can really begin to make a passive income if you add a large body of work and keep on promoting it. Xomba uses Google adsense only, you don't get paid for the number of views but the Xomba community is very friendly and if you get well known you can really make a good amount of money. I am personally only working on these two sites but there are so many other websites whereby you can make some extra money by writing articles.
- Writing music reviews
One of the only sites I have seen that you can make money from writing music reviews, is a website called http://www.slicethepie.com/ I know there are others but this seems to be the best one, you basically sign up for free and start writing reviews, you have to have a paypal account in order to get paid but again if you put the work in you could make a little bit of extra money. The only thing with slice the pie is that you don't start earning money straight away, it works on ratings basis, so if yor are one star you won't get paid for your reviews but once you reace 2 stars you will start earning 5pence per review and it goes all the way up to 10 pence per review. If you a couple of hours in the evenings then you could really make some decent extra money.
- Writing for online magazines and other peoples blogs
One of the best places to find writing work is http://www.craiglist.com/ all you need to do is sign up for free and browse the writing adverts, bloggers and website owners alike put adverts on these sites for new writers. Some of them pay well and some of them pay peanuts but you can still find some good work on here. Another thing you can do on craiglist is advertise your services as a writer, however make sure you have a good writing portfolio. You can also e mail blog owners and website owners to ask them if they have any writing work available.
