If you like to write articles, you can make some decent income at it. My friend Maria makes about $1,500 a month on eHow. I’m not in the U.S. so can’t participate in eHow yet (I’m hopeful they’ll some day change that!) but I have other programs I do participate in such as:
Bukisa wants your how to articles and videos and you’ll make $3.95 per 1000 page views. I started with this site in October and have already hit payout.
I’m still learning about Yuwie but there’s lots to do in this social community so I’m checking it out. Not only do you get paid page views for things people do on your pages but for your own pages as well. The only downside I see so far is a LOT of ads to sift through and this comes up sometimes when I want to do something so having to bypass ads is slightly annoying.
InfoBarrel is a lot like Bukisa or eHow but the site offers Adsense revenue sharing instead of per page view rates so this looks like it has the same type of potential as eHow which means you can make a lot of money. You can also see how much money you’ll make because you track it through your own Adsense account.
Making money through passive income streams works great because you can write something today that pays you indefinitely. In 2006 I wrote an article about a particular topic on a shared revenue site and it went viral and is still paying me about $30 a month via Google Adsense almost 3 years later!
Amazon Mturk (mechanical turk) offers the ability to make money online from home. You can make cash if you have a US bank account or transfer earnings into an Amazon gift certificate and if you’ve been to Amazon lately you’ll know you can buy just about anything on the site!
what is the Amazon Mturk program?
Human intelligence tasks, aka HITS are offered to people who are members of the program and you can make a penny to several dollars for tasks that include things like writing, answering questions, doing admin work and more.
Is the pay on Mturk good?
The pay is really low. There are article writing jobs that pay much lower than you’d earn on many content sites and there are other tasks that are priced quite low as well but the site might be worth joining if you’d like to earn a bit of money in your down time for filler pay when not much else is available. This can be a good start for those just dipping their toe into the waters of working at home because:
Positives of Amazon Mturk
-it costs $0 to join
-Amazon is a trusted company
Negatives of Amazon Mturk
The negative side of things beyond difficulty cashing out if you’re not American, is that buyers have to choose to accept your work or you don’t get paid so if you’ve accepted a $10 job to write 10 articles and the buyer doesn’t like your work, you’ve wasted your time.
Writing on spec is something experienced writers don’t typically do because without a ‘kill fee’ that you’re paid if the buyer doesn’t like your writing, you can definitely lose out. Not all the jobs are writing though as some are research related or administrative.
There are a lot of ways to make money online beyond this site. Dig through my posts and you’ll see many online job opportunities. But, Mturk could provide you with some easy opportunities and the penny and nickel gigs could add up in your spare time for some spare change. Realise that you are financially responsible to pay tax for what you earn and again, you could spend time working on a project you won’t be paid for. I’d love to hear from other MTURK hit providers to see what their experience has been.
Check out Bukisa. It’s another revenue-sharing earning program. I already write for their ArticlesBase website so already know that this company knows how to promote and monetize their site. They also have lighting fast response times to support issues which is important. I joined another article site lately and their support sucked so I haven’t bothered to go back.
Anyway, this site looks to have great potential and a multi-level referral program which makes the money making potential pot even sweeter. Check it out

Making multiple streams of passive income is a great way to make money online from home and a site like this could net you earnings months after you’ve taken the time to write the article.

In the past, I’ve written for ehow as a ghostwriter working for a copywriting company and made good money at a flat rate an article. The thing about ehow earnings though, is that they can bring residual passive income month after month if you write for them directly. Why don’t I write for them directly and make passive income? The eHow writer compensation program is currently only open to U.S. residents and I am a Canuck. Drats.
eHow’s writer compensation program doesn’t give you a spefic pay per click commission structure. Much like Google Adsense, it’s a mystery. High paying keywords and great SEO will help you make more money from it.
If you write one ehow “how-to” article a day, within a few months you could be getting a very decent amount of money on a monthly basis. My writer friend Maria has been getting pretty monthly checks lately and just had her biggest cheque yet with almost $900 in September 2008 from her 202 articles which have been added regularly for the last several months. Even though she only wrote 11 new articles recently she’s earning from the last several months of work. Maria wrote a book about her strategy which is selling like hotcakes! I love freelance writing but when you sell it once, that’s it; your buyer gets to make all the future residuals. The eHow compensation plan lets you make passive income indefinitely!
Write one a day in your spare time and see what happens! Want to read a copy of Maria’s ehow book?

MLM programs are multi level marketing programs. If you’re at all familiar with Amway, this is a common example. In a MLM program, you pay to get into a program and the person on the ladder above you receives a commission based on everything you do. For everything you sell, you get a commission and the person above you in the ladder does as well.
