Tips to earn money writing blogs:
One blog for one subject you write about. This is so important.
You can create as many free blogs as you like so this is not a problem.
Spend time making the blog look professional by using the templates and other add ons available.
Keep the blog up to date and try to write a blog post at least 3 times a week but more if you can.
Write an eBook
This is free to create but does take time.
The best non fiction eBook to write is a ‘How to’ on anything subject.
The subject will depend on your knowledge and research capabilities.
I am writing a recipe eBook at the moment.
Fiction eBooks take longer to earn money but there have been a few great successes notably the Fifty Shades of Grey series. These books have earned the author millions of dollars and still are. The first book started out as an eBook and then a monster was born lol.
You get paid for each eBook sold a certain percentage depending on which payment structure you use.
Tips to earn money writing eBooks online
Research your subject if writing a non fiction book.
Use easy to understand step by step instructions.
If you promise to show how to do or make something then that is what you should do.
You will have a few near misses and may have spent hours writing on a subject you were sure would be popular and earn you money online. If the first few eBooks do not sell well then do not give up.
Learn from it and carry on with the next one.
Follow the Terms and Conditions on each site
Follow the rules of each writing site or you will take the risk of being banned and lose your payments due. The same applies to the affiliate programs of Google Adsense and Amazon. Take the time to read the Terms and Conditions then you will be able to write online and earn money every month with confidence.
The best ways to earn money online for me is writing
Writing online to earn money can be done very successfully. But if you want to earn a good steady income then you have to put in the work and be patient.
This is not a quick rich scheme. So don’t get fed up after a few months writing online if you are not earning 100’s of dollars a month.
You can earn that much and more but you have to put in the work. It does take time but once you have a good portfolio of articles and fiction online then you can earn from different types of writing on many sites.
