Create Your Favorite Lists on Listofied and Earn Passive Income Online
Earn Passive Income Online by Publishing Lists
In life there is always a need for some sort of a list - whether it'd be what to buy at the supermarket, what to pack for that trip, what restaurants to go to for dinner on your vacation or something else.
If you are the type of person that loves to create lists you can actually earn passive income online by publishing them online. There is a new site out there that I recently joined called Listofied that lets people make money online by publishing lists.
If you publish lists, however, you can't just list things and stop there. You have to actually add relevant content to each bullet. For example, if you create a list of your favorite movies you can't just list the names of the movies and publish the list. You have to also write something about each movie in the list, whether it'd be a summary, a review or something else. So, your lists can't just list stuff. They also have to expand on it.
You can create a list for just about anything. You can create how-to lists, top lists, best lists, worst lists. You can create those that discuss the easiest ways of doing something, or reasons for doing something. The possibilities are endless, so you will never run out of lists. All you have to do is get creative and may even browse through lists created by others to get ideas on what to write about yourself.
What's the Format for Listofied Lists?
There doesn't seem to be one set format for Listofied lists. If you are not sure how to create one you can look at lists that have already been published on the site. One possible format can be something like this:
A few brief lines summarizing the list.
Then the actual list with relevant content.
#1 - first bullet title in heading style
content relevant to #1
#2 - second bullet title in heading style
content relevant to #2
#3 - third bullet title in heading style
content relevant to #3
and so on...
I believe you can also create un-numbered bullets; that is use circles, etc. in place of numbers.
The minimum word count for any type of list post is 100 words.
How Do You Earn on Listofied?
You make money on Listofied from Google ads. When someone clicks on any of the ads displayed on your list pages you will earn something, be it in cents or in dollars. How much you will earn will depend on the cost per click of that ad. You may also earn from ad impressions. In this case no ad clicks are necessary as you get paid for ads being displayed on your list pages.
To be able to earn anything on Listofied you need to have an active Google AdSense account. If you do then you will have to paste some AdSense code into your Listofied account. If you don't have a Google AdSense account you will have to apply for one but before you can do that you have to have already published content. So, before you apply you will have to publish some lists. I am not sure how many lists you'll have to publish but I'd think at least ten would do the trick.
Since you earn on Listofied with Google AdSense, Google will actually be the one to pay you not Listofied. Therefore, you will need to earn $100 before you can get paid. Good thing is, if you already have a valid Google AdSense account that you use on other websites you will have more income coming in from other sources and hence will reach the payout faster than you would with Listofied income alone.
Why Should You Publish Your Lists on Listofied?
You don't have to publish your lists on Listofied but it's a good idea to do so because this site is designed specifically for lists. Also, Listofied is owned and operated by Harlow-McGaw Media, the same people that own and run Daily Two Cents and Writedge, both of which pay writers for publishing articles. This reliable team of people will answer all your questions quickly. So, if you have any problems with publishing lists, the website itself, or have any other questions, you will be able to get the answers and help you need without having to wait for days. You may even get a reply the instant you post an inquiry. All you have to do is join the Harlow-McGaw Media Support Group on Facebook and post your questions there.
