There are a couple of ways that you can make money online writing articles so i will cover both within this article and once your finished reading, or maybe watching the video, then you can go out there and make some extra money. Its all about taking action, so if you do nothing with this information, then nothing will happen.
Marketers need a steady stream of unique content to submit to either their blog, or the article directories as this sends free traffic to the website which makes extra sales. This traffic is highly targeted and is why articles are much needed, in all markets.
You can do one of two things:
Become A Freelancer
I'm sure your aware that the freelancer sites are becoming bigger and bigger as more successful marketers want to hire people to do all the work and these people will pay you for quality unique articles. Sites such as freelancer allow you to bid on jobs and if the webmaster is interested then he/she will accept your bid.
A few of my friends have done the same thing but for web design and SEO and let me tell you, the results have been amazing. Yes, people from different countries will out bid you but the professional webmasters know that if you pay peanuts, you will get monkeys. Always only provide the highest quality and word of mouth will throw business at you faster than lightening.
Webmaster forums such as digital point or warrior forum are also great places to flog your articles at a reasonable price and once you get a few interested customers, you can then look forward to repeat business as article writing is on-going work. The need for constant, unique articles will never end so as long as you provide top quality content, you cannot fail.
Write For Yourself
Affiliate marketers or product owners will write their own articles and submit them to grow targeted traffic to their own landing pages as this traffic alone can generate alot of sales if it is consistent. You can do both! write for other people as well as yourself and make twice the amount of money, its a win win situation.
Articles are great to build backlinks, as well as to drive traffic from the actual article directory and if you submit multiple times per day, your traffic will certainly see an increase, as well as the sales.
You can use direct linking to your offers using a domain name which will send your article traffic to the offer. If your not worried about building a list and just want the sales then you can do this. I have personally tried this with great results.
You must choose a keyword for each article and make sure you include the keyword within your title, the summary and a few times within the article body. This will make sure that you get the maximum traffic from the actual search engine on the article directory as well as your listings within the other search engines such as Google and Yahoo.
