You can Make Money on Infobarrel

Updated on December 28, 2014

What is Infobarrel?

Infobarrel is an online publishing site that allows writers to publish their work and get paid at the same time. Much like Squidoo, people write on various niche topics, such as pets, movies or parenting advice. When you write on something that you are passionate about, it really comes across in your article.

I find that some of my academic articles work very well on infobarrel For example, take a look at my article on Nietzsche: Death of God. I get good traffic to this because it is a well written article and a low competition subject.

The best thing is that you can get paid for writing about what you love. Most well written and socially promoted lenses earn about $0.50 per month. Doesn't sound a lot? Well if you upload an article every day for a year, you will create yourself a passive income stream of over $150.00! That would probably be without affiliate sales, so if you add your amazon affiliate link in, you can also earn a percentage of sales made through your article increasing your earning potential even more.

Infobarrel vs. Hubpages

Is infobarrel better than Hubpages? Not necessarily. I think that it is important to understand that the strengths of each lend themselves to different types of article. There is also the argument of not putting all of your eggs in one basket.

I personally like to run both a Hubpages and an Infobarrel account. I find that product Hubs and travel Hubs work best on Hubpages. I keep my more academic articles, such as Philosophy and Theology on Infobarrel. What do you think?
