Making money from Your Articles
I often read of internet marketers extolling the virtues of article marketing how it’s a fantastic way to market a website, get more backlinks, increase traffic, and establish the writer as a professional in the field. Although, I’ve noticed very few individuals talk of how a small online business actually make money from their writing through article syndication.
In the early 90s with the dotcom boom, content syndication seemed easier to do, even if you had a small online presence. In the Pre-Adsense era, you don’t have to be a Reuters or Associated Press to earn money by using syndication.
Companies such as iSyndicate (bought out-by YellowBrix) and ScreamingMedia (bought out-by Dow Jones’ Market Watch) accepted very small content providers and having accepted and also syndicated by these companies guarantees you of earning a few thousands a month.
Instead of giving out your articles for free in websites like EzineArticles.com, check first if you can generate revenues from them. Today, here are a few companies that can help you earn more money from your content:
- Mochila = free to register and you’ll set the cost of your articles or contents. Mochila will get 30% of the price tag while the writer gets 70%.
- Uclick = syndicates works of cartoonists, puzzler constructors or developers /designers and gamers
- iCopyright = one of the leading reprint solutions today allowing publishers/writers to earn money by selling reprints of their content. Publishers/writers pay a percentage (up to 10%) of the shut sale done through iCopyright technology
- Associated Content = pay range is approximately $3 to $20 and will accept both exclusive (not ever been published before content or articles) or even non-exclusive (formerly published).
- YellowBrix = top tier content providers; hard for small businesses to get accepted as a provider
- Suite 101 = they just recently relaunched the site and today accepts freelance writer to get a revenue sharing proposition. Writers get a percentage of the earnings made from Google Adsense ads served within the article pages. The downside is the fact that they want to become first place where you publish the article and contents, and would like the article to become exclusive to Suite 101 for one year – after which you can republish in other places which includes your site (an important downside if you’ve your own blog and website)
