How to Make More Money on Wizzley
You may have heard about Wizzley. It’s a revenue share site similar to HubPages and could be a great alternative now that Squidoo is closing down. After all, you don’t want all your eggs in one basket, do you? You may already be a writer on the site.
Either way, you’ll want to know how to make the most out of it. Just how do you make more money on Wizzley? Here are a few tips I’ve found after writing there for almost two years.
Write Often, Write Well
This is a phrase coined by Wizzley writer Jo Harrington. It’s a catchy one that has stayed with me and I regularly think of it when considering writing sites. It’s very true too.
The best way to make money on any revenue share site is to write often but to also write well. You can’t just put up any old content and you certainly can’t put up copied content. Wizzley and other revenue share sites thrive from high quality, relevant, informative and engaging posts.
Think about the type of content people are searching for and then find your own unique angle on it. Share your personal experience on a topic and offer solutions that nobody else has ever thought about. With the added bonus of video and poll modules, you could have an extremely engaging and helpful article for readers.

Make Use of Further Reading
With sites like Wizzley, the best way to get people to read more of your posts is through a further reading section. There’s no email signup box that you can offer them like you can with your own blogs. The further reading will need to be related to the topic that you’re writing on at the time. For example, if you’re writing about winter gardening tips, you could share posts on various winter flowers or to individual articles for sharing tips throughout the seasons.
There are different ways that you can offer further reading on Wizzley. The first is through the traditional in-text links. These are great since they’re so easy to use. Now, I speak from experience though when I say I don’t click links until I’ve finished reading something, unless I’m not getting the information I need from the original post. I go back after reading and then click them—if I remember.
Another option is to use the “articles” module that Wizzley offers. You can add further reading at strategic points in the article. These can take the reading into more details, and shows a picture and description of the article to help them decide whether they want to read on. You can also add something at the bottom for more reading on the topic.

Write Sales Articles Without the Sales Pitches
Interesting sales articles do really well on Wizzley; just ask Jo Harrington. It’s worth looking at the top selling products on the likes of Amazon and eBay and create interesting sales articles, without the obvious sales pitches. You could describe some great ideas for Christmas gifts or consider fun ideas for gifts for a specific niche.
Some writers do really well with Zazzle products. The benefit of Zazzle is that you can create your own products and sell them. You earn a better commission that way. You can sell other people’s while you set up your own store. There’s no need to do a lot of work. Simple add logos and pictures to cards, t-shirts etc. and sell them on the site. Zazzle takes care of all the rest.
If you sign up for VigiLink, you can sell on the site through that too. This gives you access to so many other affiliate stores so you offer exactly what you want.
Reviews tend to work out really well. It doesn’t matter what you’re reviewing, but make sure you offer your own personal experience.
There are modules for the various affiliate sections to make it really easy to add everything exactly where you’d like.
Learn How to make More Money on Wizzley From the Writers
The writers at the site aren’t selfish. Jo shares so many of her tips and tricks. With every 50 articles she writes, she shares another tips and tricks article. She’s coming up to 700 articles now too!
Learning from other writers is a great way to make more money on Wizzley. They’ve already figured out the way to do things and have an idea of what works and what doesn’t. They also have an idea of the better quality posts and ways to find Amazon or other affiliate products to promote.
It will take time to get through all the informational posts on the site, but that is time certainly worth spent. No article is the same when it comes to tips and tricks because they are all based on personal experiences.
