How to Make Money Writing Online – An Intro

Making money online isn’t witchcraft, and it isn’t wizardry; but on the flipside, it’s also not always turn-key easy. But it can be done by anyone, anywhere…anytime! All you’ll need is a few simple tips, resources, and basic writing topics and ideas to get you making money writing online on a full or part-time basis.

Niche writing is one of the most popular ways to make money online. Essentially, because the Internet is so vast, the opportunity to become an expert in any one particular niche or narrow field is bountiful. If someone is searching for a particular product, topic, or keyword that is unique and there aren’t many people writing about it, chances are good your writing will be found. And once it’s found, you can advertise and capitalize on that traffic.

There’s hundreds of free resources out there that you can leverage to get your content found, and you don’t have to be a professional or experienced writer (although it can’t hurt to brush up on basic, proper reading and writing skills once you get going). Take Ezine Articles, for example. Ezine is a free article directory that allows you to post content and links to your website.

Don’t have a website? No problem; Use WordPress, a free open-source blogging application that allows you to build pages and publish your articles. Finally, sign up for a free affiliate marketing account either through Commission Junction or ClickBank and load up some advertisements on your new website. As traffic comes through your site, so too will affiliate advertising dollars.
