Updated on June 11, 2015



Making money online has become very popular today and most of the make money opportunities are so boring and it seems impossible, to make money online without spending money. So many people are there to make people pay money to them in order to enrich themselves, yet they are not able to give lasting solution to people desiring to make money on line without spending money. There are situations where people ask job seekers online to pay some amount of money before they render their services. There are some jobs that are available online but it takes so much time for one to be able to earn a reasonable amount of money. Some of them are the paid to click, paid to read, paid to search the web, paid survey jobs etc. These jobs are good and you earn well if you happen to join good ones that actually pay out when due. There are also some websites that do these jobs as a team and earn much more than individuals doing them alone, example of such sites are the free money team which I am also a member and the marketing pond. Members of these websites work as a team and their members earn well.

Having said that, I have taken some time to make research on the internet and I’ve come to realize that it is not easy to make it with these sites mentioned above especially as an individual it takes a lot of hard work and patience. I have come to the conclusion that it is easier to make money online writing articles. If you are someone that can put words together and write things that can be of help to others then, you can really make good money writing your own articles and posting them to paid to write sites, write reviews for websites and writing your own articles at free blog sites. You can blog about anything you like, you can write about your life, your experiences, stories (fiction and true life stories). I am going to list out some sites where you can write and post your articles and get paid for them. Hold on! Before you pick up your pen to write, try to learn how to write good articles on line, especially if you want to write and post it to websites that will add it to their web content, because it is not all articles that are accepted at such websites. Your articles when submitted will be edited by the editorial team who will give you feed back in a short period of time say three days to one week. So, you need to write great content to be accepted or approved by such sites.

Let me give you a tip on how to get started, you can walk into your local magazine shop, read through some magazines and buy at least two, take them home and read them thoroughly, note how the articles are written and start writing your own articles following the same pattern. You can write about anything you like, ranging from your favorite movie star, sport star, television program etc. And post to any of the sites I will be listing below and you will start making good money. One thing you need to do is always read articles related to “making money online writing articles”. If you are a fast leaner you will soon start making money writing your own articles.

Below are some paid to write sites where you can sign up to start writing your articles for money.

All these websites listed above are free to sign up. You don’t have to pay to become a member. You are actually rendering service to these websites as a result you are to be paid and not the other way round. The free money making opportunities are limitless but some of them are scams so be careful and make sure you see reviews about the sites you intend to join, to avoid wasting your time with such sites. If you want to know if a website is a scam site all you need do is type the name of the site then type scam or review . Let’s say is the sight you intend to join. Type or review and you will see the opinions of the internet community about it. One thing I like about the internet community is that they don’t try to cover up scam sites since almost every internet user is out to make money. Especially those of us that want to make free money online and don’t want to take chances.

Before you leave this page, I want to advise that if you are from any of the countries not accepted by paypal, you choose the sites that have adsence revenue sharing opportunities so that you don’t waste your time working and lose your earnings when due.
