Similar to writing an eBook or publishing a blog, writing articles will take time before you start to see a return but if you can persist it is a great way to make a passive income without any investment other than your time. The difference between writing an eBook or a blog is that writing articles is a bit more straight forward because you don’t have to worry about maintaining the blog or prouducing the eBook, you can focus 100% on the content creation.
There are two ways you can make cash from writing articles:
You can write them on a freelance basis where you get paid per article. You can do this on a freelance basis or using a site such as Textbroker. With this method, you write once and generally get paid once.
Alternatively, and this is by far the better option to build a residual income, you can publish on a site such as Hubpages which share the revenue they generate through affiliate links on your article. With this method you write once and get paid regularly.
