Web Content Writing for Money

Updated on April 18, 2011

More Money

Who could use more money; I certainly could. If you are anything like me and millions are; money is always in short supply, I work hard every day but I never seem to have any money left after the bills have been paid. Surely there must be a way to solve this lack of cash without having to put what little money I have at risk.

When I started writing this article which shows you how to make money in your spare time from home; I wanted it to give you a couple of simple ideas that work; money making ideas that anyone can do and don't need any money up front, this is actually harder than it may seem because any money making idea usually involves an investment of some sort. We have all read the adverts promising unlimited wealth overnight; keep your money they do not work and will releive you of what little money you have, these money making schemes will cause you to be disheartened about ever making extra money in you spare time; stay away at all cost's.


Have you heard the saying "learn by others mistakes"? If you have then you will understand that putting it into practice is very good advice.

In this article I will give you an overview of 2 simple ways of increasing your income, I and countless others have increased ours using these ideas, they are not secret formulas or mad cap schemes but tried and tested ways of making money from home. From your part you will have to put in effort and do not expect to make money overnight as it takes time to build up a successful business; anyone who tells you otherwise is being less than truthful.

How To Earn Money on Hubpages

To make money on Hubpages firstly you will need to write about subjects that people will want to read. You can share your existing knowledge or you can research virtually any subject by using Google, this should give you all the factual information you need; it's up to you then to present this information in an interesting way.

Hubpages is highly regarded by the search engines so your writing shouldn't take long to get listed; what this means is people will find your writing. There are a number of ways that Hubpages has allowed you to earn income from your writing; they are as follows:

  • Google- Targeted ads are displayed on your article pages, each time somebody clicks on one of these ads you earn a percentage of the fee paid by the advertiser. you will need to have a Google Adsense account which you can get here; again it's free to join.
  • Amazon- Take a look at Hubpages and you will see products advertised, you can display relevant products on your articles and earn a commission each time someone makes a purchase, to get an Amazon Affiliate account click here; yes this is free also.
  • Kontera- I do not use Kontera Ads myself but these can be added in the affiliate programs section of your Hubpages account dashboard.
  • Ebay- If you have an Ebay affiliate account you can display relevant Ebay products in your articles and earn a commission. If you haven't already signed up for an Ebay affiliate account you may find it difficult to open one as they generally prefer you to own a website or successful blog.
