Writing To Make Money on the Internet

I have been writing for a few years on the internet to promote the affiliate products I am marketing. Writing on the internet for money is a new niche on the home based business sector of the internet. Explore with me how you can make money online through writing blog content, web content and article marketing.

Writing On The Internet

I began writing on the internet a few years ago by accident. Since then, I have been writing by choice and making money and contacts doing it. I have become better at writing on the internet over the years.

I can on the fly write articles about any topic I know about. However, for topics I am not conversant with, it takes me a while to do it. I hardly compromise on my standards since most people will know me and associate me with my articles they have read. Therefore, I do my best to write articles that are of the highest quality and not copied content.

Make Money Writing, Make Money Blogging

The first types of articles I started writing online are blog posts. You see, I was introduced to affiliate programs and I thought I could make a lot of money without promoting my affiliate products. The reality dawned on me when after several months I had not got visitors going to my affiliate websites.

My research on the internet revealed that the way to go was to write blog posts to draw attention to the affiliate websites. I went to blogger.com and registered a free account. I also went to wordpress.com and did the same. I started posting articles at my blogger blogs as soon as it was registered.

The blog posts drew attention to the affiliate products I was promoting and I made a few sales. The number of visitors ending up at my affiliate website increased and kept increasing on a daily basis.

As the visitors increased, so did my blog posts also increase. Because of the attention my blog was getting, I was motivated to write more since I was anxious to keep my content fresh and continue to appear on the Google search engine results page.

I was making money through my writing though not directly. My blog posts were promoting my affiliate products and I was making money through commissions received from affiliate products sales.

Writing For Money, Writing Articles, Writing For A Living

In time I started writing for money on the internet. I started by writing articles and submitting to articles directories where publishers could pick them up and republish them on their websites and blogs. Some of the republished articles helped me make affiliate sales through the websites where they were republished.

Many article directories, especially the small ones, invited me to write and submit articles on their directories. Some republished my articles on their directories. They were all good for me since they were actually promoting me on the internet as a writer of repute.

Eventually, I went and registered at Elance as a freelance article writer and proofreader. The success story so far changed.

Writing For A Living

It was a different ball game at Elance when I registered. I had the notion it was going to be easy writing for a living on the internet. How wrong I was.

It took me a few days to get my first project at Elance. The job was to write 5 spinnable articles using a predefined syntax. The topics were varied and most were in niches I had never heard of before. For instance, one of the articles was on bimini tops. That was the first time I was hearing that word bimini. A quick search on the internet revealed that it was a type of top for pontoons.

Well, I wrote the articles but could not meet up with the agreed time due to unforeseen circumstances. The owner of the project was understanding and accepted the project when it was finally ready and also paid me promptly and recommended me on the website.

Due to time, I could not take up more projects and I have not visited the website for a few months now. However, I could have been making a decent living writing articles for a living if I had promoted it.

Make Money Online Writing Articles

To conclude, I am sure that you can make money online writing articles if you put your mind on it. However, you need to build up a reputation as a writer of class.
- Do not copy other people's articles and republish as your own,
- proofread your articles prior to publishing,
- use technology to write better articles,
- study and learn how to be a better article writer.

I wish you the best as you strive to be a better article writer and make money writing articles at wikinut.

Hi there, I've heard about article directories but don't know much about them. Is Wikinut one? Perhaps you wouldn't mind doing an article about article directories.

People need to get realistic expectations, most people think if the join a site they will get rich over night.
It does not happen that way.
Until a writer has 100+ pages, and is getting consistant views they are still "Growing" their business.

I agree with you Mark. When I joined affiliate programs way back some years ago, I had that erroneous belief that the money will come once I joined.

Well, I kept waiting for the money which never came. Visitors were not even visiting my affiliate sites. That was when I began to take action as I mentioned in the body of the article.

There is no legitimate business that will make you rich overnight; none that I know of.

Listen to those that are already making it and learn from them and success will be yours a moment from now. .

bronnamdi, I want to thank you for putting your concluding statements in bold face. I have been a copy editor for an online site and it amazed me at how many people thought nothing was wrong with copying someone's work and calling it their own. Too many people seem to think that anything on the Internet is in the public domain and free to use. What amazed me even more was how many continued to submit plagiarized work and then try to make us out to be the bad guys when their accounts were closed.

Welcome to Wikinut.
