Are you a follower or a leader? A consumer or a producer? If you’re a consumer, you probably want to become a producer. If so, you’re probably wondering how to start writing articles for money.

In every job I’ve had, I wasn’t paid what I was worth. Minimum wage wasn’t the answer to all of life’s problems. When I first started on my journey of writing articles, things got better. Not because there was a lot of initial money to be made. Rather, because I became my own boss.

You can start writing articles today — and it’s not that difficult.

How to Start Writing Articles For Money: The Realities

Let’s be honest, make that money — whatever it takes.

For the majority of people, you can start writing articles for money but it won’t make a quick return. Rather, it’ll make a long term return.

Bills simply don’t go away. For that reason, I recommend you put some time throughout the week dedicated to writing articles. With the rest of your time, go figure out your life. Go work those hours. Make the transition slow.

It’s important to make these types of investments in your life — especially when you want to start writing articles for money.

If we plant our money in rich soil, it grows. Whether in real life, or on the internet. This is how it works. How you implement these ideas is up to you.

How to Start Writing Articles For Money: The Basics of Writing Articles

Writing articles for money is easy. You don’t have to be talented or educated to do so. You don’t need to take communication courses. All you need is to be interested in a subject long enough to write something about it.

There are writers that exist in today’s world. Then there are those that say they want to write but don’t write. They simply talk but don’t walk. They don’t get their plans rolling.

For some, it’s a matter of they can’t write quick enough. Their mind flies off to oblivion. For most, they don’t feel confident in their own knowledge base.

I urge you to learn to draft out your ideas. Once those ideas are made, edit them slowly. And then write your first draft. Edit, and then create your final draft. Edit once more, and you’re good to go.

Me personally, I do all of my work on an iPad Pro. I have a keyboard, a mouse, and a pen to work with. I do all of my writings in a way where I can later work off of them. I waste no time — no virtual paper.

Writing articles takes research — especially when you’re not an expert yet. Whatever your topic is that you want to write about, make sure to have some sort of experience. And make sure to do plenty of research when you don’t know.

How to Start Writing Articles For Money: The Burger Structure of Article Writing

If you can cook a burger, you can make an article.

  1. Choose your protein. Choose your topic. Choose anything — preferably something you’re interested in.
  2. Choose your toppings. What do you want to talk about? Talk about your topic. Write all of these ideas down. If you need to (you probably must), do some research. Put it all together.
  3. Cook the protein and toppings. Order doesn’t matter here. Put together the main ideas and passages of the article.
  4. Add the buns. Now, sandwich the topic and ideas between a beginning and an end — the alpha and the omega. Write a good conclusion. Write a compelling introduction.
