Writing for Websites
Yes, you can make money writing for websites, and this page
is a good example of that. I hired out the job to a writer who
was working through Fiverr.com. Since everything there sells
for $5, and you get only $4 of that, you might want to consider
working through one of the freelance sites where you're likely
to get better pay (I have paid as much as $22 per page). But
I suppose if you can crank out articles like the following in
twenty minutes or less you might do okay writing for just $5
each. Keep in mind though, that you typically give up all rights
to your content (notice the lack of a by-line), so you better
make a decent wage.
How I Made a Full Time Income Writing for Websites
Many people think it is literally impossible to earn money
online. This is simply not true if you use your imagination and
talents. At one time I believed it was impossible as well - until
I found my passion.
I've tried selling information, software and screen savers
and none of these plans worked as well as writing for people
who need content for marketing or for their websites. Of course,
it was slow at first, but as I gained popularity I was able to
get orders regularly. I was no longer able to keep up with the
work load alone and had to hire people to work with me.
I started out by opening an account on freelance site. The
main sites were scriptlance and GetAFreelancer as well as oDesk.
In the beginning it was difficult to get jobs but people are
still willing to give newcomers a chance. What I did is I always
sent samples with my bid. That way the client can judge what
I can do and can't do.
With time, I also learned more about SEO, search engine optimization
and keyword usage. My writing improved and so did my marketing
skills. I was able to learn about keywords, both proper placement
as well as density, for different purposes.
I always put the customers and quality ahead of everything
and it paid off. Not only did I earn money - a good monthly income
- but I made some valuable loving friends as well. When you put
gold in you get gold out. Since you have to work with the people,
you should go out of your way to show quality and caring as well.
This is the true key to success.
How Much Can You Make?
Within six months I was earning several thousand dollars per
month in profit from the comfort of my own home. I was able to
leave my full time job and work from home plus take care of my
children at the same time.

When I began placing ads on Warrior forum business boomed,
even more than on any other freelance sites. Placing ads here,
my business took off. I was getting orders daily - more than
I could handle. Because of this I was able to build a team of
ten writers and had to hire an editor as well as project manager.
Of course, I still stayed active. I never gave up writing and
simply took over management of employees as well as accounting.
