While attending college I did a lot of things for extra money. Some of which can’t be mentioned here. I spent a lot of my time looking for legitimate ways to make money online, and freelance writing was something I took an immediate interest in. My major was communications, so I figured myself to be a decent writer. Not to mention, I actually enjoyed writing.
One of the ways to make money online by writing is to start approaching content companies. How do you find these companies? Well for starters, Google is your friend when it comes to job opportunities. However, finding some of the legitimate content companies amidst the scam wasteland can be a daunting task.
Associated Content is one of the many great content companies out there for freelance writers. I highly recommend their web site for any aspiring online writer that wants to make money online by writing articles. Associated Content will pay you upfront amount for exclusive rights to your informative articles. How much will they pay you? I usually get between $5 and $8 for every article that I submit to them.
You might think that amount is fairly low, but how long does it really take you to write 400 words or so about a topic you know. If you don’t know a topic that well, but still want to write about it; Google is your best friend in this case as well. Another great thing that I found out about Associated Content is their revenue-sharing platform. For every 1,000 people that view your article, they will instantly pay you $1.50!
Only a measly $1.50 you say? Well if you have submitted 100 articles to Associated Content, these views will add up A LOT quicker than you think. If you can write some articles about popular topics, you will see just how powerful this revenue-sharing platform can be! The great thing about online content companies is that there are nearly twenty of them in operation today! If you can write, then they will write you a check!
