Three Important Tips To Making Money From Writing Online

Updated on August 1, 2011

There are a lot of Internet-money-making-claims and Get-Rich-quick ways of making money on the Internet. Some are more interested in making you to sign-up by narrating how much money you will make without explaining how you will make the money. While others will take you through a meaningless long write-up with repeated Words and Sentences, colourful Texts, Photos of dollars, Videos, and all sorts of systems that usually ends up with a sign-up page or a "sale of the secret". But the truth is that, the actual art of making money requires hard-work and the investment of time and patience, as evident in writing on the Internet.

Writing Articles online has taken a new dimension that free tools and materials are now available for you to create your own space and make money from it. Although the make-money aspect is rather juicy, the education and gradual developmental process that terminates in a professional Webmaster, should command the zeal. Small wonder this Hub has given birth to a progress through three important steps with the simplest recommendations:

• Hubs → Hubpages

• Blogs → Blogger

• Website → Yola

Hubs (Hubpages)

As a First-time-writer, it is advice-able that you began by creating or writing your own Hubs on Hubpages. We all have what we know (and what we think we know) more than other people. Hubpages gives you the opportunity to express that knowledge, interact with the rest of the World on that subject, and earn in the process. But you would soon learn about what others are writing and begin to create something serious and more useful from your initial knowledge.

Hubpages is more of a well fortified classroom with so many great teachers, some you know and interacts with, others you learn from their great articles and postings in forums and questions. They are all Authors in their own right that might have began just like you, or seasoned real-life professionals. There are so many of them who are ready and sometimes volunteers to give important assistance that could take you through to the next level.

Also, while it is popular to write a comprehensive and almost perfect articles for you to be considered to be paid; Hubpages gives you the opportunity to receive money for Articles that comes from your own naive as you grow with the Community. Such money-making process gives you simple tools that gets you enlisted in affiliate programs such as with eBay, Amazon, Google AdSense; and also make money from the almighty Hubpages Ad program.

Hubpages contains a whole lot of simple tools that are incorporated into an array of capsules. All you need do is to just order for one, and it is at your service. Such capsules Includes: Photo, Text, Comment, Link, Amazon, etc. They are unique in that, you can give what ever Capsule Subtitle you wish and arrange them in what ever order you so desire.

One major problem with starting your own writing-space on the Internet is how to get followers and make people to read your Articles. This is no problem at Hubpages because, it gives you access to a whole reserve of interesting followers with some of them being the first to follow you.

Although I cannot list the vast advantage of Hubpages, but I must also tell that it is a decent place to publish. There is freedom to write what you wish with some rather challenging in terms of philosophy, religion and morals. But all boils down to a moderation that ensures that people are not abused. Guess who spots you when you use a racial slur? Fellow Hubbers!

Useful Books to help you develop your Internet writing

Blog (Blogger)

Creating your own Blog is more of designing a "mock" Website. It gives you a window into how to design and own your own independent Website. Making your Blog on Blogger can be the best choice because you can get access to unlimited Applications and monetize your page with Google AdSense and Amazon Affiliate. Also, you are endowed to be able to rent out space for Adverts.

Blogger is a free blog hosting site and allows you to create a reputation that can be developed on. Your page can either be customised or built to our own taste with Photos of your choice. But unlike Hubpages, you must be creative on how to attract the attentions of readers.

Building Your own Website

Once you have mastered the act of Hubbing and Blogging, the next step will be to map out how to create your own Website. Before venturing into this area, you must know that you are in the stage where you have to invest money into the process. Although most Web-hosting Sites are fond of promising free-hosting and design, the Truth is that, you will have to pay if you would want to have your own Domain name and build a Site that can be used to engage in commercial transaction.

For Simplicity, It is advice-able you Build Your Website with Yola. Yola do not only give you an initial free-hosting, but gives you very simple tools that makes it seem like you are on Hubpages or Blogger. But you are expected to up-grade to premium to get improved access and your own Domain Name. This requires money! It also gives you access to award-winning professional Website-Builders that will help to Build an attractive site you can be proud of. But what is more important is that they help you to pass through a pathway to owning your own Website.

The Process of Making Money writing online can be summarised into,

1, Start as an Individual who just want to write Articles online.

2, Use free Applications, tools, and online services to actualise your goal.

3, Learn how to use the free system to generate money.

4, Develop your writing skills and move to the next level.

5, Build your own Website with your own Domain name, and start making good money.

      One step at a time. It seems to me you have presented the easy way to build an online business. That makes a lot of sense and probably going to be the quickest way too because one part of the process naturally leads to the next.

      RentedMule, Building a Website and creating a link is an important practice that should be a part of this Hub. Fortunately, you have been able to include it in this comment. Again, you have been able to clarify that the building process do not have to progress through the former. One could also start from Website to Hub.

      I thank you!

      I started out with the website, built around something I am knowledgeable about,with lots of content, then moved on to writing articles for Hubpages and others, to help build links and traffic to the website. I have discovered, that I really enjoy the writing more than I thought I would. I enjoyed your article, very informatative, and useful.
