It takes a while working online to figure out the best way of making money from home. There’s no set best way, of course, because different people have found many diverse and successful income opportunities that they consider to be their best way of making money from home.
Article marketing is one of the best ways of getting traffic to your website. If you’re promoting your name, brand or an affiliate program, then just 20 or 30 of your articles posted at EzineArticles.com, for example, will help you to promote effectively. If you have done your keyword research and integrated your chosen keywords into your article, then you can expect a flurry of traffic to your website once you have posted your article.
In establishing your articles on directories, you will create many incoming links to your articles and Google will reward you by recognizing you as a legitimate article writer.
One of the drawbacks about posting articles to directories is that you don’t get paid for posting them. This promotional method relies on you attracting people to your articles so that they can then be diverted to your website as potential buyers of whatever product you are promoting. There’s no income earned from just getting people to visit your site – you need them to buy. What if, though, you could actually be paid for each article you write?
People with limited writing skills are making money from home writing articles. At places like Elance.com, one of the largest outsourcing sites online, webmasters and Internet entrepreneurs are contracting out their writing projects to budding writers having just basic writing skills. Such is the growth at Elance that the company expects to nearly double on its 2008 projects in 2009.
Many article writers barely make $100 per day, but if they were trained to adopt specific strategies they could easily exceed that amount. It’s not uncommon for hundreds of dollars per day being earned by some writers once these strategies are put into practice. Barry Walls with his online writing course, for example, is turning people into high performing freelance writers earning over $1000 per day.
Barry can take ordinary people from all walks of life and train them so effectively that many of his students are replacing their full time job incomes by article writing for webmasters and other online entrepreneurs.
With more and more people turning to the Internet as they lose their jobs, making money from home through article writing is an attractive alternative. The important ingredient for success, though is to adopt the strategies mentioned.
