To make money on the internet you need to sell a product or service. One way anyone can make money today is to get paid to write articles for the never ending supply of blogs and websites who are looking for fresh content. Here is one way you could go about doing that even if you do not know how to write.
One obstacle many website and blog owners face is how to keep their content fresh. This is harder than it sounds, especially if they are not a writer themselves.
This creates an opportunity for you to make money at home and provide a useful benefit for them as well if you can write. What if you can not write or do not think you can write?
To begin with you need to get experience. Because you can not get rich writing one article you are going to have to master writing quality articles very quickly. It is possible to write a very good article of around 400-500 words in 30 minutes or less if you know how.
You need to learn how to write bullet articles. This means an article that has an introduction, a list or 3 or 4 bullet items relating to the introduction, and a closing.
Try and choose a topic you have a passion for or have an area of expertise in. Let’s say you love sewing.
Start writing 400 to 500 word articles on anything relating to cooking. Set a goal to write and submit 10 articles on sewing to:
They are the largest article directory on the internet and they will review and approve your articles if they are of a good enough quality. 10 approved articles will give you a “Platinum Statues” with them and allow you to submit as many articles to them as you want in the future. This is good for your creditability.
You can also go to ArticleMarketer.com and do the same thing. Except rewrite your 10 articles to make them unique. ArticleMarketer is a great way to learn how to write and they will give you some tough guidelines to follow to get your articles approved by them.
What you have done so far is get yourself prepared to write for a customer. This is not rocket science. If you can talk you can write. You just need to be sure and practice good grammar and spelling and learn to write at a quick pace.
Using search engines to research is a big key as well. A software like Search Automator really is handy to find an unlimited supply of information on virtually any subject. This takes you off of the hook and allows you to write relative information articles on any subject.
To find customers you just start looking for blogs on the topic you want to write about. You can Google search any keyword phrase and come up with a list of millions of results. Look for the contact information and send them and email. Offer to write blog posts for $5 a piece. Be sure and list your author page for Ezine Articles and Article Marketer as a reference for the quality of your work.
Make it a goal to contact 20 blog owners a day until you have a steady stream of customers who you are writing for on a weekly basis.
You can do the same thing for websites and offer to write 400 word articles for $8 a piece. Do the math and you can see how you could write 2 articles an hour at $8 each and earn $16 an hour writing at home. If you like to write you could easily earn over $30k a year writing full time at home.
As you can see to get paid to write online you need a computer, the internet, good research skills, and a talent for quickly developing articles on any topic. As you get better at this you will find a never ending supply of customers who you will be in demand for.
