How to Write About What You Love and Get Paid

The internet is a hive of information some good some bad.  You can and join and be a part of the huge wave of writer's that populate the internet currently.  If you can construct a sentence and want to earn some extra money, starting your own blog is a good place to begin .

2. Promote Affiliate Links On Your Blog

You can write product reviews, while including a couple of affiliate links in every blog post you produce.  You can call the shots when you have your own writing platform.  This includes how you choose to make extra money.

If you put any affiliate links on your blog, always make sure you have a disclosure on your terms and conditions page or where you decide to put your affiliate link.

How Much Do Affiliate Links Make?

Depending upon your chosen program you can be paid up to 50% commission.  If you use Amazon Associates program yu'll receive around 5-6% commission.

Obviously the larger your audience the better your commissions will be and how big your audience is.

3. Website Advertising

Adding Google Adsense to your blog is really easy, and has a lot of potential.  Most bloggers have some kind of advertising, even if it's just one Google Adsense ad on a blog post.

Use the less is more approach, customising your adverts on your chosen subject.  That way, your blog won't be too garish and full of unwanted advertising.

How Much Does Advertising Make?

This depends on the overall size of your website.  Don't rely on earnings from one specific place of revenue.  Combine it with other methods.  Not everything will take off at once, it will take a while for people to trust to you and your blog.

As a long-term strategy, advertising is a really good one. It took me a while before I got my first Google Adsense payment,  it was definitely worth the wait.  If you're a competent writer and will to go that extra mile and build a popular website, you'll make good advertising revenue.

4. Sell Your Own Ebooks

If you're starting your own blog, you need to think seriously about writing your own products for people to buy.  It benefits both you and your readers.  You'll discover how to create your own eBook, while passing valuable information onto your followers.

5. How Much Money Will I Make Selling My Own eBooks?

If you're writing non-fiction ebooks rather than fiction you can charge as much as you like.  A few years ago website owners would sell their eBooks for $97 or more.

With the popularity of Kindle and e-readers most people are used to cheap eBooks.  With non-fiction you can still sell your own premium product, and sell it at around $10-$50 depending on the length and topic of your eBook.

You could sell your eBook through Amazon at a much lower price but to a larger audience.
