Writing Online – Who wants to make money online now?

There are thousands of people who write online today. Some for pleasure, some for an extra income and some to help others etc.

For those who write to earn extra cash – I have observed that most expect to earn money immediately. I was one of those people. When I signed up with Hubpages in May 2009, I checked my Adsense account every couple of hours to see how many hundreds of pounds had been made with my 5 Hubs or so, but it was just a few pence.

So, can someone who is just starting to write online make money - immediately?

.

a) The Good News

You can and will definitely make money online – but, don’t expect it to happen now or "yesterday".

In preparation, ensure you have a Paypal account as most sites pay this way. For some sites like Hubpages, Shetoldme, Xomba etc you would need an Adsense Account which will generate your earnings. Sign up: wwww.google.com/adsense. This is a commission payment by Google for people who have clicked on Ads on your posts. Many websites now pay for the number of views of your articles and if you write for Hubpages, sign up to the Hubpages Ad Program.


b) The Action News

  • Put in the work now. Be consistent in writing articles.
  • Get Traffic to them. Post them on various Social networks. Visit other Hubs/articles - don't be a lone ranger onsite. Use Backlinks. Helpful Article (More useful Articles below)
  • Be Patient (at least give it some weeks). It's funny, I have noticed the times I don’t check my adsense is the time it earns a lot. It doesn’t like me checking it everytime.
  • In the interim, read / find useful info to help you. No matter how good a person is, there is always room for improvement. There is so much useful information on Hubpages - simply make use of the search button and type in what you are looking for. Search Twitter using hash tags like #blogging #earnonline #writingonline. It will bring up some awesome articles to help you.

If you write for Hubpages, remember to sign up to the Hubpages AdProgram. You will earn more and the payouts will be quicker. Example every month or every other month.... unlike Adsense which could be every few months because of the Amount you have to reach before payout.

c) The Cashing in News

After a while – maybe months you should start making some money. You will get to a point where you are no longer writing lots of Articles or just writing 2 or 3 a month, but a reasonable amount is still being generated from what you’ve already written. You could decide to put your feet up then or continue and build a Passive income.

** It is also a good idea to write for more than one site or have your own Blog by the side, just incase one website does something that could affect your articles or they have a problem which means certain features are not working temporarily on the site.

In a nutshell, you can make money online, there are genuine websites but you have to plant (write) water (get traffic) and wait for it to yield (). I have been publishing online since 2009 and my pay from Writing online does make a difference every month.

Good Luck.

Excellent advice, Lady E. It really takes hard work and patience. "It's funny, I have noticed the times I don’t check my adsense is the time it earns a lot. It doesn’t like me checking it everytime." Isn't that the truth! Thanks, Ciao. :)

Mike Lickteig profile image

Mike Lickteig 6 years ago from Lawrence KS USA

Hi, Elena! Adsense doesn't like me checking it, either! It also doesn't like me quoting it. I told a friend once how much I was waking on Adsense, and it seemed the earnings halved themselves as soon as I said it. So, I check it as infrequently as I can stand, and I never talk with friends about it!

Recommending we read is such sound advice. We learn about Adsense, about web page design and more importantly, about writing when we read. To some degree it doesn't even matter what we read! Reading anything helps, at least a little.

I am always appreciate of your insights. Thanks for sharing.

Mike


Lady_E profile image

Lady_E 6 years ago from London, UK Author

** Cheers Jai, I'm glad you can identify with the Adsense checking issue. lol. Thanks for stopping. :)

** Thank you Roli - wishing you good luck on HP. I am over due to visit your profile again. See you soon.

** Hello Mike - aaawh. It's so strange. Once you flatter something it does the opposite. Some kind of spiritual law?? So, now I do the opposite. I've had emails asking my earnings and I just play it down: Well, you know, it's okay. The money's not bad. lol. I'm not tempting fate.

Thanks so much for stopping - it's nice to know other people have the same experience. Best Wishes. :)

I'm still too new to be bothered with it. It is just fun to write and read all your articles. But seeing the people make money, perhaps I must take a more serious look into it. This will buy me time to write and read more. Think I will go back in your old articles and catch up. Thanx for the info.

Nicely put. I do had the same problem with myself, I've checked my adsense account to often, wasting my time browsing instead of writing. Though I saw improvements of page impressions after the articles grow in age. After all it takes some time for the search engines to find a fresh article and put it in his index.

Great hub.

andromida 6 years ago

It's really takes time to see some real cash flow with little traffic.For the time being I am trying to build backlinks for my hubs and also revamping hubs such as changing title or even changing URL helps to increase traffic.Initially,I made lots of mistake in choosing the right keywords, everyday I am learning how to write better..hope some day I will be able to write like you.What I love the most is reading the feedback from hubbers, there are some real serious readers who really read every piece of information you present to them.Without joining hubpages I could never meet people with diverse cultural background.thank you Elena :)

** Hi Fgual - Good to know and I hope it increases every month. I enjoy your Hubs. Regards.

** Cheers Cari - nice to hear from you. Those pennies will be turning into lots of crispy notes for you soon. Best Wishes.

** Hello theboxmeister - It's nice that you are already seeing an improvement on page impressions. You just need people to get clicking the Ads on your Hubs. Good Luck.

** Aaaawh Andromida - such warm comments. Thanks, I appreciate them and I also enjoy your articles too. Particularly the IT ones as I am only knowledgable in software. (That's why I call you my IT Guru. lol)

** Hi Avant - you have to sign up with Adsense. google.com/adsense. Google will verify your paypal/bank details and will send you a pincode. Once all is verified they will send payments monthly into your bank account via paypal. (proivded you reach the payment limit which is $100 or £60) Best Wishes.

** Thanks Hubpages Writer - Good Luck. :)

** Maruthirp - Thanks so much for your comments. Regards.

** Hi Vaalion - it does take a bit of time but after a while you can just sit back and earn even while you are sleeping. Good Luck.

** Thanks Ictodd for confirming that. I appreciate you stopping by.

** It's nice that people help you out Mary, but you know they say practice makes perfect. I'm not a professional writer but have just learnt as I've gone along. Try writing a few on subjects close to your heart and I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Thanks so much for stopping.:)


Set Up Free Website 6 years ago

If a person is willing to work at it, significant income can be made online. It does take time, as all real undertakings do but for those willing to learn the ropes, online income is attainable.

As you've touched on, it is a good idea to work a number of opportunities, so that you have multiple income streams.

Whether it be through writing articles, blogging or creating websites, the income potential is there.

Good hub. Bookmarked.

Thanks for the encouragement. Being new and having so far to go before getting any financial reward reminds me how important it is to keep plugging away and to provide useful, quality content as I go. This allows me to benefit in the long run when the money does come in and it (hopefully) allows readers to benefit from reading better hubs because I am in it for the long haul and not just seeking the quick, easy money. The right mindset should keep us focused on doing what is best for all.

Nice hub, I used to have a blog long time ago, but I had no purpose of making money on it (then), it was only for private pleasure and learning what "ticks of" people, in the sense to get response, I liked it. But unfortunately my time to continue back then (4-5 years ago) was limited due to very much work. But I'm back again, but now I'm to grown up to start ticking people of, but I might put up something for the fun of it, someday ;)

Lol mxgwebmaster. "I'm too grown up to start ticking people off". I'm sure you'll enjoy it as you take it up again. Not all people write for money. I have a poem blog which just inspires people - it hasn't got adsense on it and earns no money, but I enjoy writing there.

Hi lady E, and thanks for this well written piece. When I first got on the block writing for not only hubpages but other get paid to write sites as well, I was already planning on how I'll go on a yatch ride all from the money I'll be earning from adsense and other affiliate networks, but lo the clicks where not coming, and I was busy with other projects. But looking back now, I've come to realize my mistakes and oversights. Thanks for this piece.

Dont mind tatto guy who wants his money now, I follow this guy and I think he's one hell of a hubber with nice hubs and a large network of followers. This guy has cracked the adsense code, and he sure knows this. Hi tatto guy say I'm wrong...


Lady_E profile image

Lady_E 6 years ago from London, UK Author

Thanks Chinemeremz - Glad you found the article useful. You will earn reasonable money, you just need to put in the ground work for now and then even when you are sleeping, Your Hubs / articles will be yielding money for you.

True about Tattoo guy - he knows his stuff. His Tattoo profile is a new one, He' been on HP for years and there is a lot to learn from him.

Good luck. :)

Mind you I've been on HubPages since May, 2009, and received only one check since beginning to write. However I'm due to finally receive my second one, which took almost a year.

Lady E, thanks for that piece of advice, I was one of those who looked forward to earning money immidiately, after a long time of writing in several pages like Hubpages ,Helium etc,I am yet to pick a dollar as rewards.

However, like biblical Abraham, and Job, I must continue to trust God until I see my Isaac.

Brava..God bless you.

OK! I have had my work out for the day - working my way down to the end of this long, long list of comments. Whew! :)

This is one for the books - bookmarking, that is. Love it, with all the valuable information given. For me, I write for the sheer joy of writing. I so much want to encourage and teach others, that is my motivation. And the other reason for writing is to keep in touch with and support my hub family. Thank you dear Lady, for an excellent hub here. Hugs...vocalcoach

Great Hub and what an impressive following you have. I have been writing online a couple of years now, although my work is mainly seen on my websites. Following recent Google updates I have realised that getting an authorship profile and a following of real people as opposed to just search engine traffic is the way forward, so I hope to follow the same path as you on here. Well done :) Steve

As far as Adsense not doing well if you check it a lot, there is a saying in America-- a watched pot never boils. Of course it is not true. But it is saying that time flies when you are having fun and moves slowly when you are feeling bad. A baby learns to walk by falling down a lot. So if a person checks it a lot, he will learn what he needs to learn by doing it. That is how you learned!

Lady_E, you have hit the nail right on the head by saying making money by writing online is not instant. One has to write regularly, get traffic and then wait. This is the most frustrating part though but if one can get through it, one can make money.

You are encouraging and very truthful. I started writing to learn and to share. Next week I will launch my own websites complete with a mobile application. I only wish I had started earlier and had found HubPages a couple of years before. I truly love this community. The help from my fellow hub bears, the quick and complete response from the team at HP has kept me both engaged and encouraged.

The pennies do turn into dollars and I can see where creative and dedicated talent can earn a real income.

bac2basics profile image

bac2basics 3 years ago from Spain

Hi LadyE. It can be very frustrating when you work hard at this but have only had one payout in 9 months, but the thing is to keep going. I must learn how to do the back linking thing, my friend who encouraged me to write online explained it all with great care and patience and I understood perfectly what he was telling me, but when it came to putting it into practice I just couldn´t get it to work...so if you fancy nipping over to Spain to give me a lesson I would appreciate that greatly LOL :)


Lady_E profile image

Lady_E 3 years ago from London, UK Author

@bac2basics - Hola Anne, Thanks. I would love to pop over to Spain to give you a lesson - but in the summer, with 2 chairs on the beach. My advice is to sign up to the Hubpages Ad Program as payments are more frequent. Atleast, you will get one every 2 months, if not every month . Google Adsense takes a long time to meet the threshold.

Good Luck with Writing and most of all enjoy. :-)


moneyfairy profile image

moneyfairy 3 years ago

Thank you Lady E I have been trying to be patient as my adsense account that I signed up for is still not approved or disapproved so I am just waiting....it does get frustrating as I would like to see some $$ but I guess I just have to keep writing and get at least 1000 views. I am not technical at all and the only high speed internet for me is when I get a chance to go to the library. So I don't know how to get more traffic. I wish I knew a good computer geek to help . thanks for this hub!!!


bac2basics profile image

bac2basics 3 years ago from Spain

Hi Lady E.

I am signed up to Hubpages Ad program but have still only had 1 payment in 10 or 11 months. Mind you I didn't sign up for that particular earnings setting until much later than everything else, so who knows there may be a payment winging it´s way to me as we speak...I do hope so because I did hope to earn some extra income from writing, and as much as I love the friendship and support from all my hub friends, I need the dosh too :)


Lady_E profile image

Lady_E 3 years ago from London, UK Author

@bac2basics - Sorry for delay in response. I was on holiday abroad for 2 weeks.

It might be Traffic. Sometimes, it's useful to promote your Hubs. Less views, less earnings - High views, higher earnings. You can use Twitter, Facebook, Redgage and many more. I will share a link on one of your articles (incase you don't see this response) - it gives 101 ways to get traffic to your website. If you follow that, (well, do at least 10) hopefully, there will be changes. Best of Luck


Lady_E profile image

Lady_E 3 years ago from London, UK Author

@MoneyFairy - I'm so sorry for late response. I've been away for a few weeks. My suggestion, is while waiting for Adsense to be approved, you can write for sites that pay for page views and also pay with Paypal.

Take care.

bingskee 3 years ago from Quezon City, Philippines

hi, Lady_E! it's been a while and as expected, in my visit to your hubpages corner, i'll find a treasure. :)

this is such a nice tip for newbies and 'oldies'. sometimes, the many concerns can drown the interest to write, and also the (financial) results from the efforts. but everybody hast to continue writing their hearts out not only for money. the gain will surely come unexpectedly.


Bedbugabscond profile image

Bedbugabscond 3 years ago from United States

The first time I read this article was a long time ago. Yet the advice is as important and genuine as ever. I can not believe what I have learned since then. I no longer Adsense stalk, and I have learned the patience and dedication it takes to make money online.

I have finally figured out why it is so important to diversify when writing online. Writing online at more than one site and having blogs is essential to making an income online. I am still learning, and I think this will continue to be a journey that I appreciate taking. Thanks for the read, again!

Short, crisp and to the point. Enjoyed reading the hub.

How many articles a month is good enough to earn a reasonable sum of money ($$$)?


Lady_E profile image

Lady_E 3 years ago from London, UK Author

@Zanaworld

Thanks for stopping. It's not so much the number of articles. It's the quality of the articles. Example, you could have 40 articles but only 10 of them might bring in high traffic. (lots of views).

So, aim to get very good articles that attract a lot of views and you will see it reflect in your income.

Good Luck.

I agree with Deborah. I've only joined nine months ago and at the beginning I never knew I could earn money from it. I love learning how to earn from writing besides my novels, and for fun I joined Bubblews and earned my first $50.00. I've so far earned $16.00 in total on hubpages, so money is not the driving force for me here, but I love the people I have connected and interacted with on this forum and those connections are more valuable than money for me.

Jo_Goldsmith11 2 years ago

I just think these are some of the best ideas! I don't trust Pay Pal anymore or their 'bill me later'. That company called some of my business and acquaintances that I sometimes do business with and bugged them about my debt! I was a couple days late, and they had the nerve! I have since closed my account with them. I also reported to the SEC about their harassing my contacts and infringing on my privacy.

This hub is useful and helpful...I voted up and shared. :-)

This reminds me of when i started to write online, at Squidoo and later, here at HubPages. I expected the $$'s to start rolling in. When i made my first 25p, i was over the moon.

But then i soon realised that i had to "plant" and "water" for a long while before i could expect anything worthwhile.

The rest is now history.
