How To Make Money By Writing
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A lot of people assume that the only way to make money by writing is to work for a company that will pay a person to write for them. These kind of writing jobs are usually found with magazine, book and newspaper companies in both print and Internet publishing. In order to get hired for one of these companies, a person will have to demonstrate experience in writing with a degree in Journalism, Communications, English or have expert knowledge in any given field of study. These are highly competitive jobs to attain due to the fact that there are so many writers looking for work. Sadly, most writers have to supplement their income from different sources.

There is another way you can learn how to make money by writing. Instead of focusing on getting paid to do a job for a particular company, you can make money by writing articles about products. Millions of people log onto the Internet each day to research products that they are considering to purchase. These potential buyers want to know if the product is any good or not. They will also look for reviews of a product to find out the first-hand experiences of people who have already made the purchase. With the way the Internet is set up today, it is possible for a writer to cash-in on an opportunity to lead a customer to a product.

You are not going to be making money by writing an article or review by itself. You are instead going to be using your writing skills as a tool to convince a person to make a purchase. When a person purchases a product or service through a gateway created from your article, you will get a commission on that sale. This is a great way to write and get paid for your opinion.

Positive reviews aren't your only option. If you've had a negative experience with a product or service, you can take advantage of getting the attention of people specifically looking for a negative review of a product. A buyer wants to know both the good and bad about a product. If you don't recommend buying a product or service, you can let your readers know why they shouldn't buy it. You can then recommend a related product or service that is superior to the one being reviewed.

What you will need to do is find a particular product that you have either purchased yourself or are very familiar with. You should choose a product that you would honestly recommend to a friend. You don't want to deceive people by pushing a particular product that is of poor quality. You then need to research companies that sell the product that you will be recommending to others. You will want to find a company that offers affiliate marketing which is a way for a company to promote products or services without having to spend money on extra advertising. An affiliate program will pay an individual to promote a product or service for a company. If a company offers affiliate opportunities, it will usually be listed at the bottom of their website, but some companies have a link available in a menu or column frame.

Once you have signed up for an affiliate program, you'll receive your very own special affiliate link that you can use to promote a product or service. When someone uses your link to land on a sales page to make a purchase, you will receive a commission for that sale. As a writer, you have many options over the Internet to get people to click on your affiliate link. This includes writing articles, answering questions or leaving informative comments.

There are many blogs and article websites that you can use to write about a product. The websites are usually free to use. Some of these sites allow you to embed your affiliate link right into your articles. However, many sites forbid the use of affiliate links in articles or comments. You will need to review a website's publishing guidelines to find out what kind of links are permitted. Most will allow you to link to a website as long as it does not include affiliate coding. An option around this is to set up your own website that provides more information on the product and include your affiliate link there.

As you can see, there is a potential to make money with internet marketing as a result of writing information that people are looking for. As with any hobby or profession, there are ways to impove your overall result You might find it useful to take a course on Internet marketing. Oftentimes you can take a beginner Internet marketing course and learn how to write an article that will show up on the first page of a search engine inquiry. Good search engine results equal more traffic which will lead to more sales.
