You'd be surprised how many people in this world are decent writers. Okay, maybe they're no Hemmingway, but they can certainly put together a coherent English sentence. Many of these people would love to take their skills to the next level and actually make some writing with their articles. Well, this article will give you a very simple blueprint for turning YOUR articles into cash.
The first thing you need to do, and I can't stress this enough, is to make sure your writing skills are solid. Articles that sell have to be written with a certain quality. If you don't have these skills, don't worry. Later on I'll show you how you can get them.
The next thing you need to do is a little bit of research. If you want to write articles for profit, you have to find out what it is that people want to read. This is actually very easy to do on the Internet. Simply go to any search engine and type in a word, phrase, activity, or whatever. You will find a number of websites for these search terms. The more sites you find, more likely than not, the more demand there is for this information. For example, if you typed in “baseball players" you'd probably find hundreds of thousands of sites, if not more. So writing articles on a topic as popular as baseball players will probably give you ample opportunity to capitalize on those articles. Find out where the money is and go after it.
After you have discovered your niche, so to speak, the next thing you need to do is search out places online that accept articles for the topic you chose. When you find one in your search, send them an email and ask them if they would be interested in any articles on this topic and if so, how much do you pay for them. Most of the places you will find will be article directories or sites that specialize in accepting articles for payment.
However, there is another road you can take that few people know about. In your search, you will find a number of sites that specialize in the niche you've chosen. Maybe they have a site that has statistics about baseball players both past and present. There's no reason why you can't write to these places and ask them if they'd be interested in articles on your niche. If they're a savvy site owner, they'll know the value of content and will probably make you a decent offer.
These are just a couple of the many avenues you can take to get your articles online and get paid for them. We'll cover other ways in future articles. Now, if you're not sure if you're article writing is up to par, check out my signature. There is a resource in it that should help you a great deal.
Turning your articles into cash is easier than you realize. You just need a game plan.
