The Best Way for a Writer to Make Money Online is to Help Others make Money Online!
The best way to make money online is to help other people make money online! And the best way a writer can make money online is to write about ways for other people to make money online and in the real world. It's a method that works and will continue to work long after you and I are dead and buried.
We are living in difficult times. The unemployment rate is higher than we are being told and people are desperate to earn a little cash here and there by almost any means necessary. Therefore, if you can help those people earn some extra cash you will, in turn, benefit yourself financially as well as have the satisfaction of helping others.
I have one article that does just that and it accounts for more than 40% of my total views each day. That article is “Fast Cash: 29 Ways to Get Cash in One Day or Less”. I wrote this article quickly one day without even thinking about it. I wrote it because I was trying to think of ways to add to my bottom line quickly myself. Now, it is the first entry on google and I'm doing quite well from it.
What this little article has taught me is this:
- People are Desperate to earn/make money.
- If you can help them, you will make money.
- If you have a skill that you can teach others that will help them do that, you will benefit.
Many of us bemoan the fact that we might not be earning as much as we would like from online writing websites like Hubpages or whathaveyou. But I think if you can tap into a skill or an angle that will help others to earn even a little extra money every month that you will also benefit financially from doing so. In fact, I am convinced of it.
Now this particular article was not successful right off the bat, but what happened is as the economy has worsened more and more people are searching for ways to make a buck and that is why I think it has grown exponentially in the past year or two. The lesson learned is that you never know what will take off. Everyone has skills and your skills are unique so why not share those skills to help others. It's a very satisfying way to live and you will benefit as well.
What is crucial, however, is showing how your niche can actually benefit someone financially. Instead of just writing a "How To" article, why not incorporate how to financially benefit from the niche? Include in this article tips for marketing your product as well as how to make the product.
People are googling “How to make money from XXX”, not necessarily “How to Knit a Sweater” or “How to Fix a Car” or “How to Skin a Rabbit”. I mean I'm sure they are googling those things too but you aren't going to make as much money from those searches. You will benefit more from a search that might read “How to Make Money from Knitting Part-time” or “How to earn Cash by Raising Rabbits”. You get the gist? You have to tie in the skill with making money because that is what people need, they don't necessarily need another hobby. I am not saying that those other articles aren't fine and dandy I just think if you want to earn more from your articles you might want to help others earn money as well as learn a new skill.
I hope this little article helps you help other make some hard earned cash. It's a win, win, scenario and aren't those the best!
