Best Online Articles Writing Websites to Earn Residual Income
Everybody knows that there are people who do online writing for a living, be it for their own blog, as freelancers, or simply writing for websites like HubPages. Yes, it is possible to earn really well from online writing sites, whether they use AdSense payment model or a revenue sharing payment model. Being a freelancer has a lot of benefits, but you only get paid once. That's why a lot of people like writing for non-marketplace online writing sites - they are attracted by the prospect of earning residual income. Here is a list of the best online writing websites that allow you to earn residual income.
Note: Bubblews turned out to be a scam. Once I started earning, they cancelled my access to the site by saying that I resided in a country where Bubblews was not available. They also didn't send me 2 withdrawals worth $100.
Bubblews is a site where you can make heaps of money. It's a news/blogging site where you can write about anything - news, politics, gardening, cool stuff, and even personal stuff. Bubblews pays per unique view and it pays richly. I haven't been there long and I only had 697 unique views, which got me $9.30. Bubblews has a $50 withdrawal threshold and you can withdraw by PayPal, cheque or ask Bubblews to buy to something on the Web. Click here to sign up and start making money.
Wizzley is a relatively new site, but it's definitely worth checking out. HubPages users will be familiar with it from the very start, as Wizzley uses the same capsule design. The only difference is that Wizzley gives you a lot more flexibility, a lot more design options, and a greater earning potential.
Wizzley encourages users to create informative pages rather than articles. Each page can have its own background and fonts design, have a table of contents and a bunch of other stuff including videos and, of course, affiliate links. So how can you earn on Wizzley? Well, there are countless options:
- AdSense revenue share
- Amazon affiliate program
- Chitika (if you'd rather not use AdSense)
- VigLink that affiliates all your links
- AllPosters.com affiliate program
- Zazzle.com affiliate program
As you can see, Wizzley has a great potential. And it also gives you the opportunity to create really beautiful pages. Click here to join Wizzley now.
Note: Helium does not operate anymore.
Helium is another revenue share online writing website that has a decent earnings potential. It used to be my favourite website, but the recent changes on Helium didn't do it any favours. For example, they've gotten rid of Marketplace, where I used to win assignments earning $100+ per article. Now it's gone. But Helium is still a decent source of residual income. True, it has a weird rating system (people write articles to the same title and then users rate them), but the fact that they pay per unique pageviews make it worthwhile. On top of that, there are article assignments paying something like $3-$4 per article plus lifetime revenue share. All in all, not too bad. The minimum payout is $25 and they pay through PayPal.
Previously known as Factoidz, Knoji is an online writing website that offers writer earn in a number of different ways and earn well. For a start, it's a revenue share website that pays you for the number of unique views your articles get. The more views there are, the more you earn. The payrate is different for different articles, as it depends on the subject (some rank higher than other) and on your content's SEO rank. The higher the payout rate and the SEO rank, the better you earn. For example, subjects like biographies have a low payout rank, while subjects like personal finance and computers have a high payout rate.
In addition to revenue share, Knoji encourages writers to write paid product reviews. You can reserve a product review to complete it within 72 hours. Knoji pays up to $10 per review upfront and then you continue to earn residual income on your reviews. There is also a contextual links Beta program, which enables you to earn from $1 to $15 for posting contextual links to Knoji on other websites. All in all, Knoji is a good online writing website with good earning potentials. Remember that Knoji is a knowlege-focused website, so they welcome informative articles. Payments are made via PayPal and there is no minimum payout.
Despite being last on my list, HubPages is one of my favourite online writing websites. The reason is simple - it's the most versatile and interactive. If you are smart, the earning potential is great thanks to the amount of affiliate programs you can participate in. Just think of it - Google AdSense, HubPages Ad Program, Amazon Associate Program, eBay. No other online writing website offers such an array of partners. Neither does any other website provide all the cool content options, such as polls, slideshows, videos, quizzes, etc. The money varies depending on your SEO skills and affiliate marketing skills, but the potential is truly great.
Naturally, there are other online writing websites where you can earn residual income. Keep in mind that I didn't mention websites that are open only for US residents, as I'm not one myself. So the sites mentioned in this article are open for international writers. Sign up, start writing, and enjoy getting your residual income from writing online every month.
