How to Make Money Writing Articles

Hello Folks! How are you today? Day 31 of the 100 blogging marathon challenge and the weather here is very hot.

Today we are going to speak of another money-making idea, of how to make money online writing articles.

There are a number of different ways for you to make money writing articles. Although writing articles can help you make money from home, it is not necessarily something that you should do on without some thought.  First, create a small business plan.  After all, if you want to write articles for money, you are essentially creating a business.  That business needs to be well thought-out to be profitable.

It is also a good idea to decide what type of articles you want to write, ahead of time.  Are you knowledgeable on the subject of internet marketing, cycling, or something else? If so, did you know that you can specialize in technical writing, which tends to pay more?  Do you want to stick with writing traditional web content or would you like to branch out to sales letters and press releases?  To make the most money, you may want to consider trying all of these avenues of making money writing articles.

Next, you will want to decide who you want to write for.  Do you want to write for yourself or for others?  Know that each has its own advantages and disadvantages.  For example, if you use your articles to create a blog that will make money through advertisements, it can take up to a three to six months or more for you to start seeing a profit.  On the other hand, if you start writing for third persons you will being paid from the start. A good article usually costs between 20-25$, on average.

You should also stop and think about how much money you want to make writing articles.  Since you are able to write articles and work from home, you may be seeing huge dollar signs.  With that said, like any other legitimate work-at-home opportunity, you will not get rich right away.  Web content articles vary greatly.  Some writers charge $5 per page, while others can charge as much as $50 for a page. Having a written goal before starting any business is a must, while you should always have a blueprint to follow on beforehand.

If you opt to write articles for others, you will want to target either webmasters or SEO companies.  Webmasters often look for article writers for content for their blogs.  SEO companies are hired by webmasters to market their sites and increase their search engine rankings.  Article writing is an important component of search engine ranking.  Aside from outright targeting these individuals and companies, you can look for freelance job boards, visit freelance bidding websites, or create your own blog. l Personally believe that you should definitely have your personal blog and write a hundred articles before starting branding yourself to your target audience.  With this approach, you can make money through advertisements or affiliate programs that will bring you good money.

If you opt to write your own articles, it is important to know that you have a number of different moneymaking options.  One of the easiest ways is to sell your content online.  There are websites that allow you to do so, but these websites tend to take a percentage of the sale.  There are also websites that either pay you outright or with a page view bonus for displaying your article on their website. Also there are many freelancer websites that you can sell your articles online. Some of them are elance, fivrr, ondesk, etc.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways that you can make money writing articles.  In fact, that is what is so nice about doing so.  You have the freedom to decide how you want to make money, because you are the master of yourself. Article writing is also known as copywriting and it is a very well paid marketing and blogging skill!
