How To Make Money Writing Articles

Posted by mudac on May 30, 2008

There is a lot of different information in the world today, some of it is false and some of it is true. When you use the internetwork as much as me you will begin to see that making money is something everyone talks about and everyone writes about. Most of that is all rubbish, just plain trash. On the other hand, there are a few people who really do know what they are talking about. I am not going to tell you that one of those people is me, because that is for you to decide. However, reading this article could be a big help and you have got nothing to lose.

The key to article writing is style, and without it you won’t get very far. Your material has got to appeal to the readers. It doesn’t matter if you can find all of the business(article buyers) in the world if they won’t buy your material. So I would advise that you can speak your native language (or the one you choose to write in) fluently. Buyers will not be attracted to spelling or grammar errors. If you can put a check mark by that, then you are probably on the right foot. The next big thing will be, can I write about things people can use. If you can pass the two things I just said, then you can go ahead and move on. If not, then you probably aren’t a good fit for article writing.

Article writing should be something that you love to do, not something you do for money. There is a couple of exceptions, like me, I write professionally because it puts food on my table. On a good day I can make between 100-200$ and on a bad day where I just can’t come up with anything I can make as little as 10$. It just depends on my mood, whether I am busy or what. As long as you write can write 10 or 20 articles a few times a week, and you will be alright.

After you have determined how much you plan to make, you can begin to look for people that will hire you. I would recommend finding about 10 people who will hire you for a long term. Make sure these people are all paying decent, I usually charge 1$ per 100 words (usually– but I can go less). The reason you want so many people is so that you can be writing enough to be making money. By my calculations, it will take my 15 minutes to write this article. I will then proceed to sell this article for probably 6-7$ based off length and type. At this pace I will make 28-32$ an hour. That is good money where I live, and you can easily live off of it.

At this point you should basically be set—the rest of the details should be hammered out with your employer. I would recommend that if you do this full time that you hold back for taxes, because the government will find out.

Where To Find People To Write For:

This one is a bit trickier. I got myself freelancing by going to a forum full of web-masters. There is a lot of web-master forums, and a quick Google search will find you them. Another way to find freelance writing would be to Google “freelance” and you will find multiple places that offer services to freelance writers.

There you have it, this is how I make 500-700$ per week, and if I really tried—I could make even more.
