Yes, the Internet has brought us bad things, but it has also brought many good things, such as the opportunity of earning money at home online.

How to Write and Earn Money Online $1000+ per month!

 


Become a Freelancer

 

Working as a Freelancer gives you the freedom of working on different projects within a short space of time and charge a higher rate for your work.

 

You no longer need to call a recruiter and hope they will find you something that you can do as soon as your current contract ends.

 

Being a Freelancer these days can be much more flexible and allows you to work from home for companies located all over the world.

 

There are many websites out there specialised on “work from home” freelancing jobs.

 

Here is a list of websites where you will be able to find freelancing jobs:

 

  • Upwork.com
  • PeoplePerHour.com
  • Fiverr.com
  • Freelancer.com
  • writingcreek.com
  • wordapp.com

 

Set your own reasonable rate to start with. After working on a couple of projects and building up your portfolio, you will be able to increase your rate and make a comfortable living working as a freelancer part-time!

Start your own blog

 

Starting a blog may sound complicated but actually, it isn’t at all!

 

You could either opt for buying a domain, hosting package and site editor separately or go for something that will give you everything you need in one place.

 

I use Wealthy Affiliate, which not only gives me all the tools I need to run multiple blogs, but is also has tons of training on how to get your blog ranked in Google and make money.

 

You can get started for FREE and set up a blog as a free member, but you also have the option to upgrade to premium and get tons of more benefits.

 

Blogging is a really nice way to make money, because you get to own your little space (your website), where you get to talk about things you like and make money from that!

 

Here is the process:

 

  1. Choose a niche based on your passions
  2. Build a blog
  3. Write quality content at least once a week
  4. Optimise your site for SEO

 

Once your blog starts ranking well in Google and you have written enough quality content, you will be able to start adding ads and affiliate links to your blog.

 

Making a full-time income from blogging, is totally achievable but it will not happen overnight!

 

You have to put lot of effort into it. This will eventually pay off and your old blog posts will start bringing you passive income. You will literally earn money while sleeping!

 

I have read fantastic stories of people making $9000+ per month with their blogs. Some even making $150,000 per month!

Write for paying websites

 

There are some websites out there that pay you for writing articles.

 

Articles do not have to be long and for example, in the case of Upworthy, all you have to do is write a 500-word story.

 

Here is a list of websites that pay per article:

 

  • Listverse.com
  • Thepennyhoarder.com
  • Makealivingwriting.com
  • Upworthy.com

Help companies manage their social media accounts

 

Many companies struggle to manage their social media accounts.

 

Knowing your way around social medias, could land you a job as a Social Media Manager.

 

However, bear in mind that being a Social Media Manager takes more than just being able to post an image or a status.

 

You need skills that will allow you to attract new clients and increase profits for the business you are working for.

 

Pick a couple of social media platforms you want to become an expert at and study them inside out.


Take Facebook, for example:

 

  • Learn how to create a Facebook page for business
  • Check its “Insights” section and understand how to use it
  • Learn how to set up the perfect Facebook advertising campaigns

 

..and so on!

 

Once you have mastered a few skills on one or more platforms of your choice, set up a social account for your own branding.

 

Grow your following and then start looking for your first client.

 

You can try websites such as upwork.com or freelancer.com

 

Make sure you have a strategy in place and know what sort of “packages” you will want to sell to your potential clients and how much you will want to charge for them!

Write and sell eBooks

 

eBooks are digital books that can be downloaded on devices such as phones and tablets.

 

Selling eBooks is a good way to build passive income.

 

You write one, promote it and start the selling process.

 

If the book goes viral, people might keep buying it for many years to come, meaning that you would have done the work once, but you will continue to get paid in the future.

 

Here is a list of websites where you can sell your eBooks:

 

  • Amazon.com
  • Payhip.com
  • Blurb.com
  • Tradebit.com
  • Booktango.com

 

 


My Advice: The road to financial freedom

 

Despite all of these being great ways to earn money writing online, there is only one way for you to have full control on your work: Building your own blog.

 

When you set up your own website, nobody will ever be allowed to take your content down.

 

You have control over what you write and how you write it.

 

It is a very cheap way to build a great income overtime.

 

When you start writing content on a new website, this will rank very low (or not at all) in Google.

 

Overtime, however, Google will start trusting your site more and your blog posts will start showing up, whenever users perform Google searches.

 

Once your blog starts getting traffic, you can add Google Ads and Affiliate Links and make good money writing!

 

As I mentioned before, I read amazing stories of people making a full-time income thanks to their blog!

 

If you want to reach financial freedom and become your own boss, then I would advise you get started with your blog now.

 

You can even start for FREE!

  1. I love your place of work. What a view! I like the way you list things. That is easy to follow. It is a clean site and well done. We all want to make money. I think your site will help many people in this area.

  2. Cristina,
    All great ways to get started making money from home. All will pay off if you put in an honest effort. My only thought is that you only do one at a time until you get the results that you are looking for. You must focus your energy in one direction for at least six months to see some good results.
    What do you think of a store online, it does not seem as profitable as it once was, you would have to write as much as an Affiliate website.

  3. Hi Cristina,

    This was very concise and informative. I agree doing your own blog is the ultimate and so is Wealthy affiliate for helping people get their website up and getting traffic so as you
    said we can make money in our sleep.That is one of my motivators and thanks for the post.

  4. Thanks for sharing these ideas. I like the idea of making $150,000 a month from a blog. I know it won’t happen overnight, but it is something to work toward. I also started with Wealthy Affiliate because of the awesome free training that they provide to help us become successful. In the meantime, I think I will look at writing for others on some of the websites that you have suggested. best of luck to us all!

  5. There are many ways of making money online from writing (some great ones listed in this very post). I guess it’s about finding the way that works for you.

    For me, writing and selling ebooks is what has worked best so far. Small PDF reports that cover a specific topic can make you a good deal of money. Last week I updated one of my reports that has been selling steadily since 2014, so it’s definitely possible to create an ongoing income stream from your own ebooks.

    Thank you for the post.
