How much you can earn as a freelance writer?

Freelance writing throws several avenues to work from home and earn a full time income. I know of a few people who make more than $1000 per month just by writing articles.

Different avenues for freelance writers:

Article writing

Resume writing

Newspaper column writing

Copywriting

Poetry writing

Review writing

There are mainly two ways to earn as a writer for the Internet. One is by bidding for job requirements in online market places and the other is by getting hired directly by submitting samples of your writing work. There is no need to win a bid in the second method.

There is a third method of earning by writing but it is not a lucrative avenue. If you have approved Google AdSense id, you can submit your articles to several revenue sharing websites.

Earn by bidding in online market places:

There are quite a lot of online marketplaces where job providers will advertise their requirements and mention their budget.

As a job provider, you can bid for jobs that you feel you are competent to do it. Invariably, you will have to pay percentage of your earnings to the owner of the marketplace. So, you must place your bid taking into the fees you have to pay.

Initially, your bid may not be successful but you will learn how to win bids in due course.

Since the rate per article varies, I would put $1 per article as a minimum you can earn. This is the lowest rate. The more number of articles you write, the more you can earn. Most of the time, the specified word count would be between 300 – 500 words per article.

Even if you write just 4 articles per day @ $1 per article, you can easily earn around $120 per month.

Earn by writing reviews:

You can earn small amounts of money by writing honest reviews of products and services. The products include digital products also like software and scripts.

But, you can earn big money if you write reviews of movies and books. I know of a company that will pay you even $50 per review.

Your earnings will depend on the number of reads your contribution gets and the numbers of votes the readers give on your writing.

Here too, the rate per review will vary. Some companies will pay you a flat rate per review while some pay per number of votes your review gets.

You can expect a minimum of $25 in a month.

Earn as a freelance article writer:

There are big networks that hire you on a monthly salary. Some big names will pay you up to $25 per article. But to get employed by them, you must be a good writer, which you can become with a few months of writing experience.

You can earn as high as $1000 per month as a freelance article writer.

Earning opportunity for academic writers:

One particular company is ready to pay $6 to $20 per page. You will be writing essays and term papers.

Skills required to earn as a freelance writer:

Ability to do research on the Internet for information

You should be self-organized

Write free of grammar errors

Willing to correct mistakes

Take criticism in the right spirit

Willing to re-do your work

Summary:

Even on a conservative estimate, you can earn a minimum of $300 per month within 6 months.

MTurk Training.

MTurk Training

Many Indians are making a full time income by working with Amazon’s Mechanical Turk aka MTurk. Would you like to join them?

How much can you earn?

To be frank, there is really no limit. You can earn as much as you want.

On a conservative estimate, one can earn $10 in a matter of two hours. However, this depends on your Internet knowledge and other skills that you possess.

What are the skills needed to earn from MTurk?

  • Audio Transcription
  • Writing articles and summaries
  • Re-writing/paraphrasing sentences, paragraphs, and articles
  • Image tagging (identifying objects in a picture)
  • Posting comments to blogs
  • Writing reviews of movies, products, or services
  • Researching details on various topics
  • Answering questions on myriad topics
  • Taking short surveys
  • Signing up for sites
  • Translation work
  • Classifying a web page
  • Finding email addresses in a spread sheet
  • Searching the Internet
  • Commenting on a Youtube video
  • Proof reading
  • Data Entry
  • Social bookmarking
  • Posting in forums
  • Link building

There are many more kinds of jobs available. Not all can be listed here.

Pros:

  • You can choose any job that you feel you can do.
  • There is no need to bid on any job. There are jobs in lakhs, just for you to grab.
  • There is no investment, no selling, no referring, and no recruiting.
  • You don’t need a website or a blog
  • You don’t have to have a Paypal account
  • You don’t need a credit or debit card
  • An ideal platform to improve your Internet earning skills
  • No big minimum payout
  • Small bonuses for some tasks

Cons:

  • Most of the jobs are low paying jobs when compared to other places in the Internet
  • All jobs are to be completed in the stipulated time.
  • If the job provider rejects jobs that are completed by you, you are not given a chance to rectify like other sites that I know of.

Here is a sample earnings report of a friend of mine that I trained in 2008. As of today, he has earned about Rs.60,000.

There is another person whom I have trained is also earning from MTurk.

Just like a traditional job, you will earn more money with practice and hard work.


Why do you need training?

I offer to train people to earn with MTurk. I believe people require training because:

* The website of MTurk is a bit difficult to understand for newbies in Internet. I give you a personal demonstration of how to use the site and earn money.

* There are certain job providers that you need to avoid and I know of a tool that can help you in this regard

* I will show you how to come to know of high paying jobs as soon as they are posted on MTurk


Ebook content:

History:

The name ‘Mechanical Turk”-why?

What are qualification tests?

Two ways to find work.

Styleguide Instruction

How to accept a work

What is approval rate

MTurk tools

How to find other MTurkers and interact

How to recognize bad job providers and avoid them

How to come to know high paying HITs instantly?


Training fee:

The training fee is only Rs.1000

Training Duration:

Two to three hours.

Any training material is given?:

Yes, I give you a screen shot tutorial and personal support on understanding the website of MTurk.

Note: I don’t train you on developing the skills required to earn. I only train you on how to use the MTurk website.

Who can join?

Those who possess at least some of the skills mentioned above can join.

Whom it is not for?

It is not for total novices of Internet. If you say that you can only operate email and can chat, then, it is not for you. Sorry to be blunt.

What you gain?

You can start earning almost immediately after the training. In fact, it is possible for you to see some U.S. dollars in your name even during my personal demonstration.

There is no one who is offering to train you in MTurk in India except me. I heard that one person based at Bangalore, is giving a training material and is charging Rs.6000. No personal demonstration is given by that person.

If You are interested and if you meet the eligibility requirement, please contact me:

Get paid to comment on blogs.


How much can one get for blog commenting?
In my experience, I earned better than forum posting. It can vary from $0.25 to $1 per comment. Though, the rate has gone down in DP forums, I have seen some Indian SEO companies charge as high as $1.85 per comment.

Tips for blog commenting jobs:
* It is a monotonous job. Don't take too much than you can chew.
* Give yourself a break every now and then.
* Compile your own list of high PR 'Do Follow' forums.
* Buy or find a list of 'auto approved do follow' forums. Without your own resources, you won't make a penny.
* When you're quoting to the client how long it'll take to complete, add an extra day or two on top just in case. If you happen to finish early, then you leave a good impression as someone who delivers not only on time, but way before.

Sale:
I am selling a big list of 'do follow' blogs. My list contains 5000 do follow blogs. I am giving it away for Rs.1000 only. Elsewhere in the Internet, it is sold for $80 to $140

More forum posting jobs.

Below is a screenshot that I have captured regarding the availability of forum posting jobs in a freelancers marketplace. One of my blogging trainees Mr.Rajagopalan has sent me this link. For your information, he has not attended the forum posting training session.

I have provided this marketplace's URL to the those who have learnt the skill from me. May I know how many of you have noticed this?
















Below is another freelance work opportunity that I saw in the same online marketplace.
I quote:
"This is easy money that can be guaranteed for your every single month as long as you can read and follow directions.

All you have to do is follow a detailed PDF file with instructions on where and how to insert backlinks. I will give you the URL and anchor text and you just have to go through the list.

when you are finished I will simply require an excel file with the public URL to the backlink and a section to list if any sites were broken or did not work or were not accepting registrations at the time.

I've been doing this myself but I have other things I need to focus on more.

The list varies from 50-80.

Lowest bid that can communicate well and seems like an honest guy will get the long term project. If the bids are any higher than $10.00 a month I will probably just do it myself because, like I said, this is very easy work and doesn't take that long at all."

I have made this blog post to motivate you to learn the work quickly and start earning. I will be sad if you are not using the skill learnt.

How much you can earn with one blog?



I have been earning by blogging since 2005. I started with just one blog and now I have about 18 blogs and all are fetching money to me.

I am happy to be working from home.

First I started earning only from Google AdSense. Over the years, I have found various ways to earn by blogging.

I am giving below a short report on how much you can earn with just one blog provided you do the search engine optimization of your blog and promote your blog vigorously for 3 months.

All the estimated earnings are calculated on a conservative basis and this is the minimum you can earn. You can increase your earnings over and above my estimate and that depends on several parameters that include the topic of your blog, the content of your blog, keyword analysis and of course the traffic you receive.

Google AdSense: $15 per month
I arrived at this figure on an estimated 100 unique visitors per day. If the CTR is 3% and suppose the average click yields approximately 17 cents then…
3 clicks X 17 cents X 30 days=$15 per month

Sponsored posts: $20 per month
There are more than 30 companies that pay you to blog. But I arrived at this figure considering you work for just one company and they give you one blog post per week and it fetches you $5 per post.
$5 X 4 posts= $20 per month
Conditions: Your blog should have Google PR2 and above.

Text link ads: $15 per month
I know of 80 ad network and they usually pay $5 per month per link. Even if 3 companies approve your blog, you can earn $15 per month.
Conditions: Your blog should have Google PR3

Banner ads: $30 per month
Generally, a PR3 blogs commands a price of $30 per month per banner. There are more than 15 sources that give you this opportunity.
Cost per million (CPM): $36 per month
If your blog has Google PR3 and if it attracts 3000 unique visitors per month, you can earn a handsome amount of $36 per month. The average cost paid to you is $4 per 1000 impressions. There are 50 CPM ad network. If just 3 applications from your blog is successful, then 3 X 12 = $36


Total expected earnings: $116 per month

Note:
Earning through affiliate marketing is another potential avenue to monetize your blog. The income through this method cannot be estimated. But it can surpass all the above earning expectation.

Important:
To achieve the above result, your blog should be on your own domain and it should be preferably built using wordpress platform.

The earnings estimate is not typical and can vary either way.

Want to learn the skills to earn online?



Way back in 1998, I sought refuge in Internet. I was desperate to find some way to earn a living. For the first three years, I just browsed and browsed in search of a silver line.


I ended up learning several skills and finally, I earned my first $4 online. That was two years after I started scouring the web.


Even though I learnt useful skills that are required to make money online, I could not make it big. I persisted; I learnt. I compiled tons of resources, which I felt would help me one day.


Then, I entered into the world of HYIP which when expanded says, High Yield Income Potential. This involved money up front. I borrowed and courageously plunged in.

I was lucky and I earned good money. I started helping my friends but not all of them were as lucky as I was.


When the HYIP field started collapsing, God pushed me into the blogosphere. I was a novice in the world of blogging but by then, I have gained some knowledge about Internet Marketing.

I struggled to learn blogging. I tried, panted and failed. I got up and again failed. But this time, I was not wounded. God pushed me to go on. I read, read and read thousands of websites and blogs.


I established contacts with some of the top Internet marketers. I followed them wherever they went.


Slowly, the nuances of blogging knocked at my door. I threw the doors wide opened. Still, not all was rosy. I had to learn everything on my own.


First I learnt blogging through Blogger, a free platform offered by Google. I published my first blog in 2005. Deleted it in 2006 and published again another blog with the help of a Canadian in 2006. Till the year 2008, I was afraid to learn Wordpress blogging platform, that is more versatile than blogger.


I gathered enough courage, bought my first domain for my wordpress blog. The learning curve was real steep. However, with the help of God, I gained sufficient knowledge and today, I maintain 21 blogs and have plans for at least another four blogs.


I started training people who wanted to learn blogging. Only a handful of people came forward. Blogging is a serious business. It involves a lot of learning. Blogging is not for all. But, there is big money for passionate bloggers. No doubt about it.


Many of my contacts have asked me if they could earn online without a website or a blog. They were all interested to do some clerical work. I thought about their request. All the skills that I learnt in my early years can be put into use. The money may not be big at first, but then, which venture can shower you with money, as soon as you start?


There is a law of Universe in which I believe strongly. Quick money will disappear as quickly as it came, probably quicker.


These Internet skills are easy to learn and they will help anyone to work from home. Being able to work at home is very relaxing. Still, just because you are at home does not mean it is all fun and games. You also need skill and luck to make it work for you.


Once you get it rolling though, your home business can be a full-time job or a sideline to supplement your income. This is particularly true when using a computer and the Internet for your home business.


Let me briefly tell you about various easy ways to earn money from the Internet.

There are so many ads out there in the world trying to deter people. How do you know where to go? Those beckoning ads-are they genuine or are they trap? It is difficult to distinguish. I know, because, I have fallen many times.


I have tried so many different work-from-home gimmicks.

A personal guide, who has undergone the failures on behalf of you can render valuable guidance. I am here to guide you. I can help you set up your own online business. In the end, it is all up to you sustain all the ups and downs and still succeed.


Here are some of the non-technical skills that are in good demand in the Internet.

1. Forum Posting.

2. Directory submission

3. Blog Commenting

4. Social bookmarking

5. Link building

6. Signature marketing

7. Transcription work

8. Proof reading and Data entry

9. RSS Feed Submission

10. Press Release Distribution

11. Articles submission

12. Keyword research

Creative skills that can fetch you a better income:

  1. Web content writing
  2. Blogging
  3. Press release writing
  4. Copywriting (includes sales page writing, advertisement writing)
  5. Article writing
  6. Review writing
  7. Content development for search engines
  8. Answering question on myriad subjects
  9. Resume writing
  10. Letter writing
  11. Tutorial writing
  12. Poem writing

What do you require to do these jobs?

Apart from learning how to do these online jobs, you definitely need:

  • Computer with broadband Internet
  • Resources and tools required for these tasks
  • Knowledge about where to find work for these skills
  • Ability to organize your work and resources
  • Basic knowledge of Excel worksheet

How much can you earn?

Don’t expect to earn anything immediately. Once, you learn these skills, you need some practical experience. In addition, you must establish your credentials online as a dependable worker.


I would say you could earn anything from $150 to $500 per month starting from third month onwards. In some cases, the time taken to see the first dollar will be longer or even shorter.

The money and time mentioned above is just a rough estimate. Don’t get glued to it please. It is very important. Earnings are not typical.

What I would do for you?

I will teach you the skills required for:

1 Forum Posting

2 Directory Submission

3 Blog Commenting

4 Social Bookmarking

5 Link Building

6 RSS Feed submission

7 Article Submission


These are very basic clerical skills that can be quickly mastered and put into use for financial gains.

I will give you all the resources I have.

I will demonstrate how to do the work

I will show you where to find work.

I will tell you how to get first credentials without much experience to show.

I will tell you how to maintain your work report.


Can you give me a name for this work at home business?

Yes, you will be learning 75% of SEO (Search Engine Optimization)


Are there competitors in this business?

Acute competition! Just do a search in Google or Yahoo! for “SEO India”.





The figure two million search results cannot be taken as very accurate but I would guess there may about 2000 SEO companies in India alone. (I know they are constantly looking for SEO professionals. There is a perennial demand supply gap).

Just for your academic interest, please click on ‘Submitedge.com’ that I have shown to above. Study their SEO services (those 8 skills plus some more) and their pricing for each service. If I am right, it will motivate you to learn these skills.

Note: The rate for Indian companies and individuals will be much less.

Example: http://blog.indian-seo-services.com/our-services/


Who knows, one day, you can start your own professional SEO services. There are more SEO companies in India than anywhere in the world.


What is the training duration?

Each module will take two hours, probably quicker.

I am planning to conduct this course on an ongoing basis. I intend to conduct this course on Saturdays and Sundays in two batches.

First batch: 8 Am to 10 AM

Second Batch: 4 PM to 6 PM


How much it will be?

It will be Rs.500 for each module. If you want to learn all the 8 modules, it will be Rs. 3500.


Where it will be?

At my office located at:

Ruby Enclave, F2,

406, 18th Street,

Korattur

Chennai-600080

Landmark: Near Bkathavatsalam Vidyashram

Phone: 91 9600090096

There will be a free introductory session on Saturday the 15th May at my office at 8.00 AM. It will be more of a Question & Answer session. You are free to ask anything and I will try to answer to the best of my knowledge.

Note:

If you are interested in learning other creative skills, I provide these:

  • Complete art of blogging
  • Keyword Analysis
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Article writing
  • Integrated Internet Marketing
  • Affiliate Marketing

Please call me for custom training packages.
