You don't have to submit articles to companies to get paid for your work. While that would be a great thing, there are other ways that may actually be more profitable. We're going to discuss a very clever way to make income from writing articles without having to worry about a company sending you a check for your work. As a matter of fact, you can give these articles away for free and still make money. Wondering how? Keep reading.
This is going to take some work, but once you've done it you'll be glad you did.
The first thing you have to do is pick a very specific niche that you want to write articles for. It doesn't matter what that niche is but it would be best if it was something that you could write easily on and didn't have to do a lot of research on. For this example let's pick the topic of boating.
The next thing you have to do is write as many articles on boating as you can to start. You want to have as many to begin with as possible in order to get you off to the best start. You'll see why in a minute.
After you have all your articles written, the next thing you want to do is build a web site. It doesn't have to be anything fancy but it should look professionally done. If you can't do this yourself, hire somebody to do it. It only has to be one page, so it shouldn't take too long or cost too much.
After your page is complete you want to open up a Google Adsense account. You'll then place Google Adsense ad blocks on your page which will include the articles that you've written. You're not going to have each article in its entirety on the page. Maybe just a paragraph of each and then a link to the main page of the article where they can read the rest of it.
The next thing you're going to do is search through some of the marketplaces online to see if there are any products being sold that relate to your article. If so, join their affiliate program and place your affiliate link with a description of the product on your site. Write a little blurb that will tell people how this product relates to what they just read and how if they get it, the product will help them.
After you have this all set up, you want to create your own blog. On it you're going to post, first, that your web site about boating is up and there are articles on boating there. Then you're going to go to one of the blog pinging services and let them know that your blog exists.
Here comes the hard part. You then want to try to write a new article every day. Why? Because each day that you do this, you can then update your blog, which further means you can ping the blog services. Why do you want to do this? Because each time you do this you'll be bringing new visitors to your site. Over time this is going to add up to quite a few visitors and potential customers.
Just repeat this procedure for every site you want to put up. Eventually you'll have a nice sized income being generated from it.
