How To Start Earning By Writing Articles

If you want to make money by writing online, there is one thing you absolutely need to know

You must know that..

There are essentially 3 ways to make money online writing:

  • Open a Blog
  • Create a customer list
  • Register in a marketplace

If you are new to my blog then I have to tell you that my favorite way of the ones listed above is:


as I always say “Blogging is the weapon of the free revolution”

Blogging is one of my favorite ways to make money online and it is also the most effective way in the long run as well as being the most valuable method.

But Jean why do you say that blogging is the most effective and most valuable method?

I’ll explain it to you right away!

When you start a blog you are not creating your own space on the web, with your personality and your rules

but above all you are creating an asset that is destined to increase in value over time

Having your own customer base and writing for others is also a very profitable and safe way to make money by writing

profitable and safe because when you write for someone else it often happens that the company you work for falls “in love” with your way of writing, your style and the tone of your writing

and once a tone of voice and a style become part of a company it is difficult to separate the two

What about marketplaces instead?

There are several marketplaces that allow you to make money by writing

marketplaces are web platforms where it is possible to exchange one’s work for remuneration

these platforms can be considered as the testing ground for “web writers”

many web editors, columnists, content creators … use these platforms to improve their skills as writers, to see if their works are appreciated or to create their first customers

instead The content marketplace is a web platform that allows customers to find web editors for the production of digital content

Web Writer

The web writer is a professional who specializes in the production of digital content for himself or for his clients.

The web writer work in the content marketing sector which is the part of Marketing that deals with the creation of content with the aim of advertising, promoting products , attracting new customers and increasing sales

the web writer takes care of the creation of the contents and their drafting

his specializations are copywriting and SEO

the content created must be able to convince customers and help them understand promotional messages and understand the benefits of the products

Ghost Writer

the ghost writer is a professional author paid to write books, articles and official documents under the direction of another person

often also referred to as a ghost writer or shadow writer, it responds to the market demand of those people who want to create written content but who fail

due to a lack of competence or due to a lack of time

ghost writers are usually Freelancers and can earn a decent amount of money

in general, a ghost writer can earn between $3,000 and $12,000 for writing a book

obviously these prices depend on many factors: the reputation of the ghost writer, his experience, his writing quality, etc.

ads for ghost writers can be found on marketplaces such as Fiverr

How to Make Money Writing Articles Online


The best way to make money by writing is …


the figure of the blogger has always been a figure much underestimated by the general public 

Ok, I have to admit blogging is not for everyone , there are many hours spent behind the MacBook writing 🙂

but if you are a person who wants to get out of the work system that the world imposes on us and create a life and a job tailored to you then you should definitely consider throwing yourself into this new world 

the world of blogging !!

in recent years the figure of the blogger has become more and more professional becoming in recent years a real job

there are many ways to make money with a blog and once your blog is online, other infinite possibilities of collaboration with other brands will present themselves in front of you 

How to Make Money Writing: The Blog

The main way to make money with a blog is by affiliation

What is affiliation?

Affiliation is the sale of another company’s product   or service in exchange for a commission

I consider it one of the best ways to earn a blog for 2 main reasons:

  1. ZERO RISKS AND ZERO COSTS : No risk because through the affiliation you will sell products already on the market , already known by the public and with an existing clientele, all factors that make the sale much easier

    In addition No cost because since the product has already been created you do not have any additional costs (rent, warehouse, transport …)
  2. TEACHES YOU TO SELL : The best benefit that affiliation brings you is without a doubt THE ABILITY TO SELL .

    After you have learned to sell and therefore make money with other people’s products , it will be much easier with your products because you will know all the mechanisms that lead to the sale.

In addition to affiliation , you can earn quite easily by integrating banner ads or Google Adsense ads

What is Google Adsense?

Google Adsense is the advertising banner service offered by Google

thanks to this service you will be able to earn based on the number of exposures or clicks your ads will receive from your site visitors

ATTENTION : You must know that to earn with Google Adsense you must have significant traffic on your site

my advice is to first focus on growing your organic traffic (i.e. traffic that comes directly from Google searches) if you want to use this earning method

organic traffic is the most important traffic in my opinion because it brings you a higher quality of visitors 

How to Make Money Writing: The Sponsored Post

DTS Year of Writing David Sherry 672

Sponsored posts (or sponsored articles) are posts where you are paid to write for other people and / or companies

companies always need to advertise their products and often pay web editors to write sponsored articles

sponsored articles are articles that can be of any type (blog article, facebook post …) where you present the product or service of the company from which you receive a commission and present to your audience the benefits and disadvantages of the product

the advantages of this earning method are:

  • POSSIBILITY TO CHOOSE BRANDS TO WORK WITH : since you are the one who advertises these companies, you are in a “position of power”this allows you to choose which companies to associate your image with Very important thing 🙂
  • FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION : companies do not impose too many restrictions on your writing, which means that you will not have to be subject to stylistic or form impositionsgreat isn’t it? 🙂 

There are many platforms that connect bloggers to brands and the ones that I absolutely recommend are:

  • SeedindUP
  • Barcellonais
  • Publisuites
  • GetFluence

How To Earn By Writing: The Book / Ebook


The electronic book, the “infamous” ebook is another great way to make money online

if you have a deep understanding of a topic you should consider writing an ebook about it

no matter what topic, believe me there are really books of any kind

PS: I even found a book that explains how to make the boss lose his head 🙂

you just have to take a folio word and write the most in-depth book possible on the subject of which you consider yourself a master

after you have finished the book you just have to convert it to PDF, upload it to an Ebook store like Amazon , choose the price of the book and voilà, that’s it 

Simple right?

people interested in your book and your knowledge will be able to find it in the ebook stores where you uploaded it

and after paying online they will have the option to download it directly to their kindle, tablet or computer

writing an ebook, contrary to what we are used to thinking, does not require superior language skills or the mastery of all Italian words

Calm calm, you don’t have to have a degree in literature 

but the absolutely necessary competence is to know how to organize and transmit your knowledge in a clear and simple way to your readers

all the concepts in your book, even the most complex ones, must be translated into as simple a language as possible

simplicity and clarity rather than complex language will determine the success of your Ebook

all you need to write an Ebook are:

  • your knowledge
  • a word sheet
  • an internet connection
  • a great desire to write a beautiful Ebook

How Much Do You Earn From Writing Articles Online


The income of a web editor is very variable, factors such as talent, style, experience mean that we have editors who have very different earning experiences.

doing a web search I can say that on average web writers earn between $10-15 per article

for articles between 500 and 1000 words in length

while the more experienced can reach figures such as $50/70 per article

Crazy right? 🙂

by writing an article a day at this rate, you can earn up to $1,500/ 2,100 per month

ATTENTION : you must know, however, that writing an article of excellent quality in one day is practically impossible

and don’t believe anyone who tells you otherwise 🙂

a quality article needs time:

the time to organize the structure of the article, the time to research the keywords, the time to research the sources, the time to rephrase the more complicated sentences etc …

All things you will learn when you dive into the world of web editing 🙂


There are still so many things to say about writing on the web, a topic that really fascinates me and I hope you too

let me know in the comments if I have forgotten anything or if you would like me to delve into this topic more

I hope I have given you some interesting information 🙂
