Ways To Earn Money Online Writing

Updated on March 27, 2012

Make Money Online My Testimony

A few months ago I discover several ways to earn money online writing. It took lots of research and mistakes before I began making money but my earnings are increasing with each payout. Perhaps this article will help a few people looking to earn extra money online without wasting time.

In the beginning, the thought of any online work at home idea seemed like a scam. The very first time that i bought into a business plan, I was scammed. It was a service that required a $5 supply fee to start. I emailed, and called the numbers provided for customer service with no response. After about two weeks, I realized that I had been taken advantaged of. I was fortunate to only have lost $5. There are many who have not been so lucky.

I have a drive that keeps me continually researching and reading. Last summer I walked into my local library and checked out 5 books on internet marketing and blogging. I was so driven that I was able to complete all 5 books in two weeks! I just couldn't shake the " work at home" monkey off of my back. Being a housewife is very rewarding but, let's face it, the pay sucks!

After reading those books, I had a better understanding of what it would take to start earning money online quickly. The most important piece of advice that these materials taught me was time management. Reading and following so many different methods can pull you in a million different directions. Learning the basics and then creating your own course of action is the best way to go about earning money now.

Last month was the first time that I had more then doubled my earning because of the way I managed my time online. It takes alot of work and dedication before you will reap any benefits. If you're diligent and hardworking it will pay off..... literally. I was a skeptic at first but, like I said earlier, I had a drive like no other, so I kept at it. I hope sharing the ways that I earn money online writing articles can help you save time and begin your journey to internet marketing.

Make Money With Adsense, Hubpages & Bookmarking

Earn Money Online Writing Articles

Before I delve into this portion of the article, I want to briefly explain my status as a writer. If you visited my hubpages profile you will see that I don't consider myself a " writer". I write my content with real words, for real people. It's confusing to read something that you have to constantly Google words to understand it's meaning. There's alot of jargon involved with internet marketing, and I'm not a professional guru, so I will just share with you what I did to earn money online writing articles.

In the beginning I made pennies a month blogging. Then it dawn on me, I was doing myself a disservice by sharing information with people about a common problem.... " How To Get Healthy Hair". Don't get me wrong, I love sharing what I know with people but, there's costs involved with running websites. My first goal was to cover the cost of domains, hosting, and advertisements. After that, anything that I made would be extra.

After doing a little research I was able to join affiliate programs that allowed me to put links to their products on my blog. During the first year, I would get emails from readers asking where they could puchase the products that I mentioned in my posts. All this time I was giving away money by giving them direct links to where they could purchase hair products online. After signing up with these affiliate programs, I now earn commision off of what's sold through my blog. Below you will see a list of affiliate programs that I use.

  • Commission Junction
  • Amazon
  • Link Share
  • Share-a-sale

Best Ways To Earn Money Online Now

Some of the best ways to earn money online now, is to begin with writing articles. This very page that your're reading now is one of them. I have 100's online. It's really not hard at all, and best of all you really don't have to be a guru or an expert.

Right now I make money with my blogs, youtube, squidoo, eHow and very soon hubpages. I'm new to hubpages so I will update this section as soon as I begin to earn money. So far, my blog, youtube, and squidoo are my biggest earners. I make money through them from affiliate programs and adsense.

If you want a quick start to earning money online, you may want to also consider blogging. After you start gaining traffic, begin adding links. Most affiliate programs like to see that you actually have people visiting on a regular basis before approving you.

You will not make money overnight but it's possible to see some earnings in about two months. This is diffinitly an investment of time over money. In the begnning I didn't spend one dime. It wasn't until I realized the potential behind writing online that I began investing in domain names and hosting. Maybe you're ready to get started right away and have the money to do so, you can purchase your domain name, hosting and some content to get started. What ever you choose, just remember that it takes a few months to see earnings and if you're dlligent, you will see your earnings increase rapidly over time. Last month I more then doubled my earnings online but, I worked REALLY hard at it

Make Money Writing With No Fees

Don't get sucked into fees and scams. There are ways to make money writing with no fees. Get hired as an article writer by getting published to sites like this one. Use it as an online portfolio.

There are sites out there that guarantee work but with that guarantee comes fees. A few sites offer 3 to 12 month memberships ranging from $75, to upwards of $125. If you have the money, I say go for it. I have the tendency to lean more towards free sites, where I can publish my work and allow potential clients to contact me. Here are a few ways of doing this....

Anytime that you join a free site for article publishing, make sure that you complete the profile portions. If your intention is to make money writing online then state that somewhere in your profile. Leave contact information, and keep an eye on your inbox. If your writing appeals to a person, there's a huge chance that they will visit your profile and even contact you for an article writing job.

Here are a few sites that you can begin to write for and earn revenue from adsense:

Fastest Way To Make Money Writing Online

In my humble opinion, the fastest way to make money writing online is to start with sites like this one.

Article Submission Sites will published your articles and make it easier to get indexed by google. If you take time to learn basic SEO you should have no problem earning money. I listed a few above.

Blogging can be used to get fast results if you plan on updating frequently. If you have a niche blog, it's even better. Having products that you can promote will make posting articles a snap. You'll also find that blogging has a great fan base for those who are interested in what you have to offer.

Youtube, is last on the list only because it took almost 6 months for me to get accpeted into the partnership program. It was a long process but, it's my highest source of earnings from adsense so far. I drop links in the description box to drive traffic to my niche articles. This drives traffic to my articles and helps with my earnings.

When it's all said and done, if you want to earn money online writing you have to love what you do and not give up. It's doesn't happen overnight but when you see the results, you will not be sorry!. Good luck and please share your experiences below in the comment box.
