Do the Research!

Before Joining any Website

Before joining any site, you need to research the site just as well as you can so that you do not find yourself caught up in some type of horrible website scam.

Content publishing may be a bit easier; however, it is not as profitable as is blogging. However, when you have a blog, you will need to update the blog ever so many days to keep a good rating in the search engines and of course, your readers finding you and returning to learn more about you and your blog. With content publishing there may or may not be any rules about how much or how many you can or cannot submit.

Be sure to read the TOS of any site before joining and if for some reason the site does not feel just right, then the best thing for you to do is pass it on by and keep searching and researching until you find something that you do feel good about.

Always Do the Research Required Before Joining Any Website!

Content Publishing

Submitting Articles to Make Money Online

Submitting articles to make money online is called content publishing. Content publishers will gather as many freelance writers as possible to create the content that they will publish on a website or blog. Most of the time these different content publishing websites will pay you according to the number of views your content will get while being displayed on that particular site. Of course, the quality of your content will play a major part in whether or not your article content is published on such a website, or blog.

Submitting articles or content publishing is one of the most simple means of making money online, while working at home from your computer. If you can write and enjoy doing so, you might consider creating the content to submit to such sites. The advertising money that is generated from these content publisher sites is what will pay you a particular percentage of the money generated by the site with your content as well as the content of others. These types of sites are generally revenue sharing sites.

    Great list!!, I enjoyed to read your post and I want to read more and I will come back to you later. The more blogs you have you will earn some money. I agree with you I think the affiliates nowadays are every where. I think you can make lots of money. Paypal now is best payment process to send money, People like to promote them self in videos (YouTube) that way you may make money more or add your picture on your profile.

    I write on work-at-home quite a bit and am a work-at-home person myself. I was laid off from a high-paying job about three years ago and could not find anything close in salary. I got a small business loan, researched online marketing, and then started my own writing/SEO company. Three years later, we are generating over six figures in sales and will NEVER have to return to the regular work force again.

    This is a great lens and offers everyone plenty of resources to know they can succeed at this if they really try.
