Earning A Real Income At Home
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Today's economy is in a slump. They say its recovering, but for many this pace is just too slow. The jobs just aren't there yet and people need a source of income. Whether you're an unemployed worker that has been hit by the poor economy, a college student, a stay at home mother, upset at your boss, or just wanting to make more money, I have the solution for you!

Many websites give hundreds ideas for making money online. The internet is endless in what it can provide in terms of jobs. There are however good and bad jobs to have and you'll need to sort through these to find the best one. Some websites encourage you to fill out surveys for an income. They promise a steady $1500 or so a month. But have you ever tried it? You're email gets spammed, each survey nets only about $0.50 - which means you'll have to do A LOT of surveys, and sometimes you don't get paid at all, you just get put into a drawing for a sweepstakes. That doesn't sound very pleasant to me.

Other websites encourage online selling for websites like ebay. This can be a great route or a very costly failure. It often requires a pretty large investment with a risk at how well the item will take off and sell. To me, that's a waste of money. Why spend money on something that isn't a sure thing? Risks are hard to take when you're already struggling! There are countless other job opportunities on the internet and I could take time to go through each and every one of them but you would get bored of reading all of that. Most of it just isn't worth it.

There are a few diamonds in the rough so to speak. Not all online businesses are a scam and some can be utilized as actual jobs with an actual steady income. One avenue to this is through affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketers create websites to sell products for vendors. It can be a risk investing into this as you'll need a domain name, web hosting, etc. After that you'll have to find a way to actually get people to visit your website, this can be a risk on its own. Marketers use what are called Articles to get people to their websites to sell their products.

A much, much, much, much (have I emphasized that at all?) much better avenue is writing these articles for those marketers! Each product needs an average of 30 articles to sell well. That a lot! Fortunately for you and I, they're willing to pay large sums of money to have other people write those articles for them. That's a nice opportunity for us! Writing articles is each and takes about 20 to 30 minutes, research included! The average pay for an article is $50 per article. That can net $100 per hour of work. Amazing, right!? This is real money for real work and can provide you with that stead income you've been looking for. You'll first need to get connected with a high paying Article Producing Website, from they're they'll guide you into what to do next. Remember, what you put in is what you get out. You won't earn anything sitting on the couch watching television. The more articles you write, the more money you'll get paid, it's that simple!

Street Talk

Great tips Street Talk! I'm an affiliate marketer myself and I can vouch for the work that is involved in article marketing. Didn't know it took about 30 articles statistically...I'll keep that in mind and test that out. I love the strategy involved with SEO. But for anyone who loves only to write or wouldn't mind writing for that kind of pay...article marketing is it. There will always be a demand for new unique content. Good Info! Soul Purpose
