How To Make Money Writing

Updated on September 6, 2009

How To Make Money Writing-Use HubPages

I want to tell you a little about how to make money writing.  First I should tell you a little about me.  You all know me as Dale and that is who I am but I need to admit I do have a few more accounts here at HubPages.  Those accounts are 100% dedicated to making money on the Internet.  I won't give the names of them.  If some of you happen to guess then all the power to you. 

a few weeks ago I started a thread in the forum about how much money I was making and it actually developed a lot of controversy as to whether I should be mentioning earnings or not.  It was finally decided that it would be okay but also a few people asked me to do a hub up about how I make the earnings. 

I know many people have different ways they make money here and I have looked at a lot and some have even helped me change my thinking a bit.  However I am going to reveal how I make money and I know some of you will be quite surprised.

How To Make Money Writing-One Step At A Time

So you want to know how to make money writing while working online.  I will try and give you a break down of exactly what I do to earn online.  The thing is once you hear this you are really not going to believe how simple it is.

Now, I said simple but not easy.  There is a ton of work involved in how I make money.  In fact it keeps myself and my business partner very busy.  So I guess I should get on with it before you get too bored reading what I have to say.

I'm just going to give you a break down in this hub but it won't be very detailed.  I may keep the details for another day and another Hub or maybe there will be a lot of questions I will have to answer after this hub is published.  In fact I will give the steps without any details at all and let everything else speak for itself.

How To Make Money Writing-Almost All Writing

Ok, I guess it's time to tell you how to make money writing. Almost every dollar I make online has to do in part thanks to writing. So Here goes.

1. Decide on a niche.

2. Find Keywords for that niche.

3. Research the niche.

4. Write a Hub on the niche.

5. Write 5 articles on the niche. 2 for Ezine, 2 for Goarticles and one for article base. ( I also use a very good article submitter. If you want to know about it feel free to ask.)

6. Have an affiliate product picked out for your niche whether it be from Clickbank, Paydotcom or any number of other places.

7. Have a free blog started on your niche. For every article you write you should have a short blog post.

8. Now it's time to put the pieces of the puzzle together.

9. The Hub is done and has a link to a product or to the blog which has the product. The articles will all have links to the Hub and the blog.

10. In all honesty that is all there is to it. All you need to do now is rinse and repeat.

How To Make Money Writing-The Conclusion

So that's how to make money writing.  Okay, okay, I really don't need everyone jumping all over me on how light on information this Hub is.  I know that already and did it for a reason.

I just wanted this Hub to be the starting point on a series of Hubs that will have much more detail in them.  This was just to give you a very basic kindergarten sort of understanding of what we do.

I will have a series of hubs I will be starting on tonight that will have all the details you want.  I will also have a few links in the hubs for some of the tools I use.  Some are free and some are very inexpensive.  I will boldly say that the tools that do cost money are a great help but are not necessary to make money.  They save time and when you get as busy as us saved time is great.

Finally, because of a post a wrote I promised I would reveal how much money we make doing exactly what I will be talking to you about.  Keep in mind this is not to brag but rather to help.  I want all Hubbers that are looking to make money to understand how much money can be made.

In affiliate marketing you are usually paid a month late.  So at the end of August my partner and I will have received just over $7000 dollars from our efforts.  Just remember we don't use any expensive tools and we definitely don't deal in AdWords.  That 7 grand is clear, after expenses money.  So now all the Hubbers know what is possible, I hope they will follow me in my journey to help other Hubbers.

So I guess all that is left now is to continue on my series on how to make money writing.
