Want to make money writing articles? There are many ways you can profit from this by writing for others. But let's take a different approach, so you can create a long term income which deposits cash into your bank account for years to come.
We'll talk about how you can profit from your article writing skills by writing articles for a single niche, and then monetizing your efforts. It's a simple strategy, but it's powerfully effective.
1. Choose Your Profitable Niche (Topic) and Research
Everything starts with your niche, the topic. Is this niche profitable? Can you write articles for this niche without spending too much time on research?
Choosing a prospective niche is your first step.
2. What Sells in This Niche? Choose Five Affiliate Products
(An “affiliate" product is a product you promote. You're usually paid a percentage of sales you make, however some affiliate programs will pay you for a “lead", when someone fills out an online form, for example. )
Let's say you've decided on a niche: pet food. You know a little about this niche, and you know you could write articles without too much effort. You type “dog food affiliate" (without quotes) into Google, and you discover that their are many companies which will pay you to promote their products.
Choose five affiliate programs to start with.
3. Write Five Articles and Post Them to a Blog
Your next step is to create a blog. (If you're new to blogging, choose a free application like Blogger. ) Write five articles and post them to your blog. These articles will get your blog indexed in the search engines, so you start getting traffic.
You can start promoting your chosen affiliate products by linking to them in your articles.
4. Write Articles to Promote Your Blog, and Earn Affiliate Income
Finally, you promote your blog (and therefore your affiliate products) by writing articles and posting them to article directories.
Writing articles can be a powerfully effective way to develop many income streams. As you create additional content for each niche, and its blog or blogs, you'll make an increasing number of sales every day.
