Writers: Use The Web To Your Advantage!
If you want to become a writing wahm or just a freelance writer, the internet provides a wealth of opportunities for finding writing jobs. You can research how much a freelance writer gets paid, look at other writer’s sample resumes, set up your own writing website, and more.
Beyond the resources listed here, why not consider creating your own website to show your talents? Bring writing clients to you!
I’m a freelance writer, editor, and consultant and I support my family with my online income. I won’t say it’s easy but it’s very doable if you are motivated!
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?
