One of the easiest ways to make money from your computer is to provide written content for websites. If you are looking for an online writing job the good news is that you can start today. The very fact that you are reading this tells me you have everything you need to start making an income. In fact you can begin as soon as you stop reading this article.

You have the tools:

The only equipment you need to offer your services as a content writer are a computer and an internet connection. These two items, and the power of your brain, are all you need to get started. I know you have all of these available otherwise you wouldn't be reading this article, right?

You have the expertise:

They say everyone has at least one novel in them.So it stands to reason you must have a few articles in there too. In all seriousness, everyone has expertise in at least one niche. This existing knowledge is what you will be able to write about right now. I am not saying you should limit yourself, but if you begin in a familiar area it will be a lot simpler.

People need your content:

There are countless websites online, and more start each day. Every-one of these sites needs content of one form or another, and most pay people just like you to write this content for them.

Good quality will always sell:

If you produce good quality error free writing it will sell. There is an insatiable need for quality, and if you can provide it you will always have clients asking you to supply it for them. It simply remains to find, and build your client base. There are several ways you can do this.

Bid for Jobs:

There are many online portals like where you can bid on freelance jobs. Simply register with the site and then search through the listings for ones you can complete, and bid on them. When you start you may have to bid low to get jobs as you are an unproven commodity. However as you build your reputation you will be able to charge more.

Post Your offer:

As well as freelancer sites there are also ones where you can post jobs you are willing to complete. One of the recent developments in this field are so called "micro job" sites like, and others. On these sites you simply post what you are willing to do for a set price (in the case of fiverr its $5.) You are not limited to just writing jobs either, you can post almost anything, so have fun with it.

Write now sell later:

You don't necessarily have to wait for a job to start writing. If you love scuba diving, why not write an article series on that niche. You can then sell these articles as a package. For even more income you can sell the PLR or (private label rights) to them, you can sell this package to several people, but place a strict limit on this to preserve the value of the content.

The other thing you can do if the articles are on the same subject is to compile them into an e book. Informational products can sell many thousands of copies, this is potentially the most profitable way for your writing to make money.

More online jobs:

OK I know writing isn't for everyone. Don't give up though there are many ways to make money online. The world wide web is filled with opportunity. All you need is an idea of what you want to do and some good web income training. With a bit of information the goal of working from home should be open to everyone, no matter what your unique abilities are.
