Get paid to write
If you are looking to earn extra income, you may consider penning free-to-republish articles for Triond, Helium, and AssociatedContent. For AssociatedContent, you can be paid a minimum of $1.50 per thousand views, and if you are fortunate enough, you may be able to receive an upfront payment of no more than $10 for your article. But sometimes, you get nothing at all, depending on your content. For aspiring freelance writers who are eager to promote their personal blogs and websites, you can try writing for ezinearticles instead. It’s an excellent website, as it contains the possibility of luring millions of readers to your site, without you having to fork out a single cent for promotion through the placement of advertisements, and it certainly allows you to market your talents to the world. However, those with out-of-date information are likely to be tossed out after a period of 6 months. But you’d be lucky if the content you wrote is picked up and republished on other sites, with links to your website, which, in some instances, may be put on display for an indefinite period of time. Ezinearticles require its writers to submit unique and original articles in exchange for greater exposure to their websites. But you have to be prepared to write for free. In the end, it’s all worthwhile for those who have seen a spike in the number of visitors to their websites ever since they start contributing to Ezinearticles. It is slightly different on AssociatedContent, where you can only republish the headlines and a summary of the article. After which, you need to link the article back to the original one on its main website. The motive of it all is to drive greater traffic to AssociatedContent itself. Nevertheless, it is always wise to contribute. You can place a link to your personal blog or website at the end of your article if you aim to increase visitors to your site.
