How To Get Paid To Write Articles About Your Home-Based Business

With the many billions of home-based business websites and blogs on the internet today, there is a never ending supply of customers for you if you like to write. In this article we will look at ways to make money writing articles for them.

The problem many web publishers face is fresh content. They get all excited and start a new website or home business, or blog and then after a few days the excitement wears off. What they are left facing is the realization that need to provide fresh content on an ongoing basis if they are going to compete in the marketplace against all of the other websites and blogs in their niche.

This is a great opportunity for you to make money and provide a valuable service at the same time. So what do you do if you are not an experienced writer.

For starters you need to practice. The key to making money online writing is articles about your home business niche is to be able to write a quality 400 word article in around 30 minutes.

For this I suggest getting a copy of the "30 Minute Article Writing System" and learning how to quickly write quality articles.

Try and choose a topic you have an interest in or are an expert of. Let's say you love pets.

Start practicing writing and submitting articles on pets after you read this book. You should make it a goal to write and submit 10 articles on pets to:

1. EzineArticles.com
2. AssociatedContent.com

AssociatedContent.com will pay you for your articles if you live in the U.S. EzineArticles.com will review you articles and give you a title of "Expert Author" with Platinum Status after you have written 10 articles that they approve. This gives you the ability to submit unlimited number of articles in the future for your home-based business niche.

All of this is really just getting you ready to offer your writing services for money. Once you feel comfortable with your writing abilities it is time to start marketing yourself.

Start by doing a Google search for "Pets" and begin researching websites of blogs that you could contact to offer your writing services.

Your goal is to email the webmasters of these website or blogs and offer to write 400 word articles for $5 each. Provide the links to EzineArticles.com and Associated.Content that directly link to your articles for them to look at.

You will need a way to get paid and for that you need to get a PayPal account. You can quickly receive money through them. Always get paid up front before you write.

Make it a goal to quickly turn around your writing orders in 24 hours or less when you first start out. Once you have an article written email it back and thank them for their business.

Keep a list of all of your customers so you can contact them in the future to ask for more article writing business from them.

In hardly no time at all you can build a customer base of people to write for just by following this simple little approach. As you get better at writing and marketing yourself you can try other ways to market yourself.

If you can write 2 articles and hour and are charging an average of $10 per article you can earn $500 a week just writing 10 articles a day, 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year.

This is a reasonable figure to shoot for. If you want to make more money you can write more about your home business or what might interest your target market, articles, increase your hours you write, and branch into other areas like writing reports, or press releases, etc.

There is no end to the ways to make money writing on the internet.
