A-Z Blog Challenge:Day 23:Writing For Dollars from Home

Posted by Cindy on May 1, 2013 at 12:57 am




In Day 23 of the A-Z Blog Challenge, I like to share with you a


‘funded approach’ to affiliate marketing.


When you first begin your affiliate marketing journey, you may be short on cash.


However, if you have writing skills and are willing to do some research, you can


begin to earn some money on the side as a writer.




Here are some sites that pay you cash for posting your articles on their sites.


This is a website that pays you based on a revenue-share model.


You are paid based on the number of views you have received on your articles.


So the more you write and the more catchy your headlines, the higher the chances


of your articles being read.


You can earn anywhere between $1 to as much as $16 per day from your articles.


And the best part of this is that the earnings are passive.


So in addition to writing articles to drive traffic to your website,


you can write a series of articles related to your affiliate product and earn


some pocket change in the side.


For instance, if you are promoting a ‘make money product’ online,


you can write articles on niche selection, keyword research,


ways to make money online and direct them to your affiliate product for more information.


If you are interested to make money from this approach, you can view more information


from this blog post by a fellow blogger who started earning money from writing.


This website is more stringent in its selection now. You need to apply as a writer and


provide three samples of your writing and your application will be screened before


they accept you. Once you are accepted as a writer in eHow, you can be assured of a steady


stream of work. They will pay more if you come up with the titles yourself.


On the writer’s dashboard, you will be able to find a selection of titles that needs to be written.


You will be paid upon article acceptance. and


These two websites are similar to Infobarrel  which has a revenue share model.


You are paid based on the ad revenue that your articles generate from your ‘lens’


or hubs on a particular niche topic.


In addition, you earn affiliate revenue on products that you recommend on your lens or hub.


So if you can write a hub/lens a day, you will have 365 ‘silent cash machines’ working for you


every day of the year. If you like to learn more about making money through  Hubpages, you can

For those who are interested in writing for other people’s blogs, you can sign up for


an account with this website. Blog owners will post topics and subjects that they need written


and the amount they are willing to pay for it. So if you can write an article a day and earn between


$20 to $50 per blog post, you can earn a decent income upwards of $1,000 a month from home.


If you are hard working and can generate 2 articles a day, you can earn a decent side income of $3,000


or more. For more sites where bloggers are needed, you can view the Job postings.


This is a unique website that pays you for writing about products and services.


You can select from the products and services that needs to be reviewed and


write a post about 200 to 500 words giving your feedback on the product/service or


website. There are some web masters who can pay upwards of $500 for a short review of their
