The following list is a list of web sites that allow you to freely write for them and earn money in the process.
· Associatedcontent.com-Associated content allows you to write for them like any other freelance writing site. The thing about this site that is different from others is that many are that the articles presented have price tags on them. Say for instance, you are writing about a movie and the article that you are writing for is worth $20, you will get $20 for the article that you have written. Basically, you are writing responses to article titles. Some articles require you to have a good performance, meaning that your article needs to be good. The better your article, the more you will get paid.
· Demand Studios.com- Demand Studios posts articles that it’s registered users write on web sites such as Ehow.com. Typically, they pay $15 for each article you write. The good thing about this site is that they pay you quickly, at the end of each week. The articles that are needed to be written are easy to write, and the pay rate is good. The only thing about this web site is that you are only allowed to accept 10 assignments at a time, which could put your writing on hold as you wait for them to accept your articles.
· About.com- While about.com doesn’t hire just anybody to write for their web site, those that do get accepted are able to make great money writing articls, as answers to questions that people may have been asking. First, you have to go through 3 weeks of training with this web site. At the end of the training, they will decide if you are eligible for their site or not. You do not get paid for the training but its well worth it. The average minimum monthly payments earned from this site are about $700 for the first 2 years and $500 after that. Some people make up to $2,000 a month working for about.com.
· Dailyarticle.com- Daily article is a new article web site. It shows many similarities to Constantcontent.com. Unlike Constant content, they take out 20% of your earnings compared to constant content’s 35%. One thing about this web site is that you give away the full rights to articles or writing material that you have created. That means once you sell your writing, you can’t resell it again because you have no copyright over it anymore.
· Reviewstream.com- On this site, you get paid to basically write reviews. Essentially, you can review anything that you feel like reviewing. They have three rates. The regular rate varies due to performance. It’s usually $1.50 per review, but it could vary depending on how well your review is. The minimum payout through paypal is $50.
· Families.com- This site usually pays people $3 per 300 word blog/post for beginners and $4 per post after completion of the 90 day probationary period. That’s a really easy way to make money. You can write about anything that you put your heart to. Nothing gets excluded at this web site. This is the easiest way to earn money online because there aren’t any set topics available here.
· Methodshop.com- This web site uses blogs for income. You make a blog and you place it to this web site. Not sure how it works but the posts that you place on that blog could be worth in between $20 and $200 per post.
· Suite101.com- Suite101 is a professional writing web site for the experienced writers. Mistakes are not tolerated here, so for those who aren’t good at writing shouldn’t come to this web site. You are required to offer a sample article as a little taste of what you can do for them.

It’s a great way for someone to earn a good amount of money.
· Rentaghostwriter.com- As the name of this web site suggests, you are a ghostwriter who is waiting for someone to purchase your writing. Besides the fact that the web site is surrounded by Google Adsense ads, it’s a pretty good way to earn money online.
· Wordfirm.com- Word firm is one of those experienced web sites that have been around for years. This web site is looking for experienced writers, copyeditors, and graphic designers. The writing for this web site is very strict and could be troublesome for those who haven’t mastered the art of writing.
· Hubpages.com- Hubpages is my personal favorite site to write for. There are different types of writers (they call us hubbers). There are regular writers, and then there are flagship writers. A regular writer doesn’t get paid to write, but earn money based on page impressions and affiliate programs. Flagship writers get paid in between $25 and $40 per article (hub) they publish. They also get to use affiliate programs like any other writer on the site. Flagship writers have a limit of 30 flagship hubs per month. There are four different available affiliate programs that work with Hubpages. You could use Amazon, Ebay, Kontera, and Google Adsense. That’s 4 different strings of income, not to mention the money earned from Hubpages itself. The article writing is very creative. They allow you to place images, news, rss feeds, and videos into your written content to better explain yourself.
· Triond.com- Triond allows you to write articles and earn money based on page impressions. You do not get a flat payment for every article you publish. The more impressions you get, the more money you will make.
· Xomba.com- xomba is a free community where you can earn money to write. It’s a free community. Something like a forum site mixed with a chat site. You make friends, write, and make comments, share ideas, and get paid, that simple.
· Squidoo.com- This site is similar to hubpages. It offers capsules that allow you to post images, videos, and written content on pages and earn money from page impressions.
2. Answering Questions-Believe it or not, people are being paid online just for answering questions. You’d be surprised at how much money people are willing to pay to get the information that they want. There are web sites online that allow you to give out your knowledge for profit. Some of these sites even allow you to bid on how much money your knowledge is worth. This is a great way to earn money online and the following information is based on web sites that allow you to earn money online.

You can answer questions received either from the computer or through the phone. It’s a great way to generate some extra income
· Iwantyouranswers.com- This web site is…..shall I say, strange. It’s a place for those with high tech questions and those who have those high tech answers. The web site is for those who have experience with technology. This is a very strange site to anyone who doesn’t have much technological knowledge.
· Qunu.com- This web site is one of those NOW web sites. Live experts online help people with questions they may have. You can sign up for this web site, but it isn’t like other sites. You have to be available at all times to receive a requested question or you will miss out on it. They offer software for your computer that allows you to receive requests when you are asked a question by a customer.
· Guruza.com- Guruza is a new web site that allows people to answer questions and receive payments. The questions are “relatively stupid” a lot of the time. It should be easy for most people to earn money using this site.
3. Affiliate Marketing Programs- Affiliate marketing is one of the most profitable ways to make money online for anyone. There are many companies to suggest. I won’t be naming the obvious programs, such as Google Adsense, but this is a great list. There are now more trusted companies making affiliate marketing apart of their business. Companies are matching popular content that people prefer to view. Here is a handsome list of affiliate programs:
· Admob.com- Admob is a company that specializes in mobile content. If you have a mobile web site, you can use this program to advertise on your site. Although Google has this feature as well, some mobile web sites are not compatible with Google, so Admob is a great alternative to making money online. Admob works with majority of the mobile sites. It even works with subdomain sites.
· Clickbank.com- Clickbank is a web site that allows you to become an affiliate marketer and sell your items. You must have your own web site and domain name to be able to sell your items (particularly ebooks), but you could use any type of site to use the affiliate program. People have made beautiful income using this web site. I myself make at least $2,000 at the most every month. That’s because I spend most of my time with Google, but it’s worth a shot. $2,000 for someone who uses 4 different affiliate programs is great. Imagine if this were my only program I was using. The income would skyrocket. But if you love money, use this site. There are 2 different ways to earn, take advantage of it.
· Gamestop.com- Yes, you seeing this correctly. Gamestop now has an affiliate program. The most trusted gaming company has opened an affiliate program. I also use this site.

Although the adbrite revenue is sometimes half that of Adsense, it’s a great company for larget business web sites. Adbrite is a great program if you have an adult web site (which Adsense doesn’t allow).

It’s a sure way to draw in traffic and make great sells, earning lots of money from commission per sell. The following list below is sites that offer porn affiliate programs to its members.

That’s right, no risk at all. Matter of fact, what if I told you that you could earn money playing a risk free stock market game? Yeah, sounds too good to be true, but it’s possible. It started with me using virtual simulations of the stock market to learn some things before I decide to invest my hard earned money into the market, but I found out that I can earn money just for playing a virtual simulation. It isn’t that many legit sites out there, but I will show two sites that I know are worthy.

Additional Money Making
People can make money creating ebooks and selling them on popular directories. The information that you place into an ebook must be accurate and legal, showing all of your best knowledge of the subject that your book obtains to. Using falsified knowledge could sum up to you being sued by angry customers or other legal actions being pursued. You must allow some area where you are able to write down, in plain english, that the information given may not be able to be duplicated. You must tell them that the information presented is not guaranteed to work, and results may vary depending on special circumstances. Guaranteed success to customers almost certainly means guaranteed failure.
Contracts are necessary to making sure that the content you present to customers does not get duplicated or stolen and used to sell as their own. People do these things on the internet a lot, so it would be wise to make these people sign contracts before you sell them your product. Making sure that you get paid is what its all about. If someone uploads your ebook onto a file directory and it gets sold or downloaded free, you can sue that person for breaching the contract and sue them for every single download that has taken place with that piece of information. Depending on the price that you were selling the piece for, you could generate an outstanding amount of income by making sure that people don't use your information freely.
Although there are no laws that state that you can't make a contract of your own in the United States, it would be wise to get someone more involved in the legal system to review your contract, letting you know if there are any errors in your contract and making sure that the contract that you are presenting is completely legal. An illegal contract could mean that you will lose every single dime that the person you were going to sue costed you.
There are many sites online that offer free contract templates. The better web sites are those that explain the proper way to create your very own contract. Check out ask.com for more information on how to make a legal contract to protect your business.
