Want to write for money? If you'd like to start a writing business in your spare time, here are three simple forms of writing you can do.

1. Write Articles for the Web

Every Web site needs content, and articles have a high Return on Investment, because they'll keep sending a site traffic for years. Therefore, it's easy to get Web article writing jobs, even if you have no experience.

When you're writing articles for a Web site, remember that each site has a particular audience which it wants to attract. Therefore, you need to write to and for that audience.

Here's how to get started writing articles for the Web: join an outsourcing site and get article writing jobs. This gives you practice in writing articles. You won't be paid as much as an experienced writer, but every writing job you do gives you writing credits which will enable you to increase your rates over time.

2. Write Web Content for Businesses

There's more to Web content than articles. As your skill at writing improves, you can move on to writing other forms of Web content, which are generally more highly paid.

Other forms of content you can write include: entire Web sites, news content, blogs, and Web copywriting.

Here's a secret. Write content for your own sites to get experience. This shows you what does, and doesn't work online. If you can boost the traffic and conversions (make sales) on your own sites, you can do it for others too.

3. Write Blogs for Businesses

Many businesses are awake to the traffic potential of blogs. However, most don't have the skills to develop blogs in-house, so they hire professional bloggers. As with writing Web content, you need to practice your blogging skills on your own blogs first.

Bloggers for large companies are highly paid. However, you do need considerable writing experience to get the highly paid jobs.
