Writing Articles for Yourself, for Others and to Make Money

February 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 70

When it comes to writing articles to make money online there are a couple of different models that you can follow. The first model has to do with starting your own blog and writing articles for yourself that promote your point of view and offer related advertisements. The more traffic you get, the more money you make, hopefully. The second avenue of profit for writing articles concerns branding one particular image or product. You get paid for promoting this image either through sales or through direct payments from and advertiser. The third road, and the one less traveled, is writing for others.

Ghostwriting Articles for Others

The internet is full of people and companies attempting to sell something, express a certain point of view or just express themselves and many of these people do not understand what it takes to write an article that can be easily read and understood. It seems like a simple task. All you have to do is write down what you think and post it to your webpage. However, writing for many is not that easy and they need help putting their thoughts in a cohesive form. This is where you come to the rescue and are able to profit.

One thing that needs to be emphasized here is that you do not need to be a Language and Grammar specialist. You just need to be able to communicate your thoughts or the thoughts of your client clearly to others. Your basic goal when writing articles for others is to express one main point and get readers to seek additional information from your clients site.

What to Write About

Most often when you write articles for others they will provide you with the keywords or key phrases that they want you to write about. You will have their website to reference and can do a search on the internet for additional information. You must then read, understand and communicate an interesting point that would have others seek more information.

The easiest way to begin is to outline your work. The first thing you should do is to write and objective or purpose for your article. It may be something like, "In this article I will explain the basics of ghostwriting to those looking to begin writing articles for money." You then build an introduction around this premise and write down 3 or 4 ideas that you want to convey to the readers. These ideas will make up your paragraphs and then you end with a conclusion that wraps up your ideas and points the reader toward the site you want them to visit.

It is very simple to begin writing articles for money on the internet and there is a never ending need for writers who can consistently put out good material. Article marketing is growing more and more each day as search engines get smarter. This means a need for writers will continue to grow and the income you can make writing articles will continue to grow.
