How to Make Money Writing Articles

I have a number of pages on how to make money writing articles, but a while back I stumbled across the site, and I wondered about the people selling their writing there. In case you're not familiar with Fiverr, it is a website where people sell just about any service for $5. Some will write a poem for you, others will make a video screaming about your product, and others will even be your girlfriend on facebook for a week for five dollars.

Now, I was curious about the site and the cheapness of the offers, so I looked through the listings until I found someone willing to write an article about... writing for money on Fiverr. Here is what I got for my five dollars:

Fiverr: How to Make Money Writing Articles

If you're looking for how to make money writing articles, Fiverr is a good place to start. Since article writing is popular for marketing, you can sell this service for $5.00 per article. You can post a gig, as they call it, and offer to write articles. Since the price is reasonable, many buyers turn here to get writing done on various topics.

For most marketers, $5 is no big deal. You can open a world of opportunity for yourself by offering a valuable service of this type. If you do a good job, some buyers come back for more. With good feedback, you can also gain many new customers if you show off your good skills. If you do it right, you can build a good size database of clients and earn a good side income every month. You may also be able to turn it into a full time income if you know how to make money writing articles.

So, how do you start?

The first step is to see what others have posted. Then after a review of what others are doing, post your own service and set the terms for your service. Most of the sellers offer articles of 400 to 500 words or 2 articles that are 300 words each. I've also seen gigs for rewriting articles as well.

Another trick of how to make money writing articles on Fiverr is to keep the door open to communication after the articles have been delivered. You'll be surprised how many people will come back to order more of articles. Try to deliver on time and go the extra mile to get it right.

When you add your gig, always be clear as to what you will do. This way you are protected from those with unreasonable requests or tons of customization. I've had one experience like this and it wasn't fun. Don't undersell yourself and let the customer know where you stop. You should also make it clear what you need from the customer in order to do the article properly, especially for an SEO or LSI article.
In the beginning it will be slow but once you have built up a good amount of feedback, you'll see many orders start coming in. Try to get more people to rate the work you have sent them and try to rate your customers back. This will help you to build a solid article writing business on Fiverr.

Though Fiverr is a good way of how to make money writing articles, you should know the fees too. For each gig you sell, there is a small fee but isn't this the case with everything these days. You can easily withdraw the funds once they become available.

Steve's Note: I'll complete this page with a few thoughts below...

How Much Can You Make?

With taking a dollar of each sale last time I checked, there isn't much potential here, even if you write fast. I am a relatively fast writer, and I think I could make no more than $10 per hour doing jobs like these.

The opportunity here is to get experience as a paid writer. You won't make much upfornt, but it can be treated as training for later jobs that pay you $15 or more per article through or another freelance site.
