What I do To Make Extra Cash Online- Vol. 2

When I started on the search to make extra cash 3 years ago, I did not realize how many avenues you can take to do it. One day I had googled something and came across an article on a website and saw where they were accepting Freelance writers. My first thought was no way would one of my articles be accepted and I then googled the site and saw where people were making money by submitting articles and they were just your average person and not a professional writer. I have since wrote for a few sites online and earned some extra cash while I did it. Here are some of these sites that you can write for and not be a novelist to submit your work.

Associated Content was my first site that I submitted an article to. You can write about most anything. I write articles about local events, working at home, and more. How Associated Content works is when you submit an article you can choose to get paid an upfront fee for your article and that can take up to 2 weeks to get an offer or you can choose to want to get published sooner and opt for Performance Pay. You will also get Performance Pay for your articles if you get upfront payment. Performance Pay is a way to get paid for the page views of all of your articles. It is based on a PPM rate. They also have a place on their site where they have a "Call for Content" ticker that has some requested articles that is a great tool if you are getting writer's block. They also have a forum where you can interact with other content producers to get or share tips with. I have found that Associated Content's articles are highly ranked with Google and I have a few articles that are ranked high with Google and get a lot of monthly traffic. I would say this is a must join site if you are wanting to write as a freelancer.

eHow is another site that is easy for beginner's to submit their freelance writing. It is a site that is based on How-To tips. I have written some articles for this site and see that this site has great potential for earning cash for your articles. How it works is that you submit your articles for free and then your earnings are determined by a number of things, such as, views and category that your article is in. It is not an exact science as to how your earnings are calculated. I am a member of a yahoo group where women are pulling in a good amount of extra cash from this site. It is a site to definitely consider joining. If you do join look at a previous post that I made about eHow.
Review Stream is a great site to submit your consumer reviews on products and places to shop and eat. They pay you around $2 an article. The only downside to this site is that you have to reach $50 to get a payout. is a great site if you have an expertise on a subject. It can give you a bigger platform to give your knowledge out to others. This site is another site that seems to be well respected by Google and gets high rankings in searches. You can be a guide on health care, money saving, hobbies, cooking, and more. When you apply, they will require you to take part in a two part editorial training program. It does take a few steps to join but is well worth the trouble. For information on their commission plan click this link.
Squidoo is another great site to write about a particular subject and get traffic. All that you need is a particular subject and you can make a "lens" about it. Squidoo also gets a lot of traffic to their site and holds a good potential to earning extra money. You earn when someone purchases something from one of the well placed ads that are on your article. If you do a search on google you will find others that have made money from their Squidoo lens. A tip about how to earn more is to take your subject and dissect the different angles of it and make numerous lens about it.
As you can see there are plenty of places online for you to share your knowledge and not have to be a professional novelist. Visit these sites and look at what others have written and then you will see how easy it is. If you know if another writing site please leave a comment with that link.
