Writing articles for websites is not only highly profitable but enjoyable if you like writing. Although many site owners can write, their time is better served elsewhere so they hire others to do it for them.
Why Are Articles So High In Demand?
Quite simply, the more content an owner has on their site the more traffic they will incur. Let’s face it, the more traffic, the more sales and that leads to more income!
I’m Interested But I’ve Never Written for Others Before:
Even if you are brand new to writing articles or have never even tried before, you could build a nice income rather quickly by developing your writing skills. Let’s take a look at article writing, understanding keywords, developing a fast but unique style and writing article packages.
Keywords Speak Volumes Online:
Some say content is king, well then what are keywords when it comes to the Internet? Actually, content and keywords can very well be one and the same. Keywords drive traffic to sites, without keywords your wonderful article will be read by none! Keywords are usually more than one word and pretty much in the form a searcher would put into a search engines looking for information.
Nine times out of ten, your client will provide you with keywords he or she want you to use in the article. That said, keep one thing in mind, never over use keywords. Overkill is almost as deadly as using no keywords at all. If an article is too loaded with keywords, search engines will look at these articles as spam. Your articles must always run smoothly and sound natural, you will know if you overdoing it because your sentences will sound phony or stiff.
Can You Write Quickly and Efficiently:
Obviously, the faster you can write articles, the more potential for income will follow suit. Developing your own style will help you pick up the pace as you develop your skills. Starting off you are not going to be clipping off a ton of articles a week. Learn your own writing skills and style, find techniques that work best for you and you will eventually have the entire process mastered.
Some Ideas for Creating a Style:
Some writers will create short outlines of approximately 6 to 8 lines for possibly 10 articles at a time. Creating some interesting titles that will cover those 10 articles as well, will help you save some valuable time.
Keep in mind, you want each article to have unique content. It’s important to your clients and it’s important to search engines.
There are various free softwares online that allow you to check the uniqueness of your articles. It’s usually advised to have a rating of 92% and up for passable content.
Find a place that works well for you when writing. Some writers prefer the peace and quite of their backyards while others like working from a coffee shop. Others prefer to listen to a certain style of music for the creative juices to flow.
Play around with it until you find what works best for you.
Writing Article Packages:
Writing article packages is a niche all unto itself. If you choose this avenue, you will need to find a certain theme collection of keywords to base your articles on. Fortunately, there are tons of keyword tools online to help you build your collection(s).
A great many of article writers head over to out sourcing sites and bid on any article writing project that is available. The downside to this is bidders are trying to outdo each other by pricing projects low. Unfortunately, your overall income could suffer quite a lot if you rely on these sites.
Your best bet is to sell your article packages on your own site. Write anywhere from 10 to 20 articles on popular subjects/keywords such as dieting, dating, pet health, etc. Buyers love well written, instant articles! Instead of waiting for you to write a particular article for someone, you have exactly what they are looking for and it’s ready to roll!
Once you have started putting together packages, start promoting your website and yourself as Web Content Seller that provides custom written articles for purchase.
In a Nutshell:
If you enjoy writing, article writing can be a wonderful home business opportunity. Unlike some startup home businesses, you can be up and running with a great deal of success in a very short period of time!
