I’ve been trying out one cool trick for my articles for a month now and it works like magic so I decided to share it with you.

One of the hardest things about internet writing is motivating yourself to write as often as possible. One of the best techniques I’ve found to be useful is writing series of articles. The idea is simple – you choose a topic and write a series of articles about it. For instance, I’ve always loved cats so decided to write a series of articles about the cats of the world. The idea is great because it’s easier to do research for a series of articles, also usually the articles are shorter, thus you save time. Another huge advantage is that your readers, who liked the first article will most likely read the other ones. This way you will gain useful fans you will contribute to your traffic in the future.

So the plan is simple – just write daily and you will notice how the overall traffic to your blog or website will increase rapidly. Also if you find yourself bored writing about the same topic you can write a couple of series at once, this way you will cover a variety of subjects and won’t get bored. I hope this little tip will help you. Thanks for reading!

Most of the people who decide to start writing for money have one question in their minds – is it really possible to earn a decent part-time or even full-time income from writing? Ironically, even though it’s the most popular question among beginner writers, it’s really hard to find an honest answer to this question. So I decided to try to answer this question. I don’t earn my living from internet writing, but I’ve been doing this for more than a year now and I know a lot of people who earn a decent income from their articles.

So first let’s talk about the payment system of Triond. Triond pays for views of your content. That means that every 5 – 10 views you get generate 0.01 $. Yeah I know this is not a big number and many people who are interested in internet writing usually lose interest because of this number. But even though you get only a penny for 5 – 10 views, the views add up rapidly when you have a lot of articles. Also you earn by Google Adsense, which is integrated into Triond. That means that relevant ads will be placed in your articles and you will earn money if people will view and hit them. Furthermore, there is a new feature in Triond, which gives you additional 5 -20% revenue if you will write 5,10 or 20 articles a month.

This is all fine, but what are the real numbers – you might ask. Well let’s take my account for example. I started writing with some terrible articles about gaming, which brought me no revenue. I actually got almost no money for the first 10 articles I wrote, because nobody read them. Now after almost a year, I have 95 articles and I earn about 10 dollars a month (about 30 – 40 cents daily). This is not a big sum, because I earn most of my money from about 10 – 20 popular articles. So as you might imagine I could earn about 4 times more, if I had 95 great articles instead of 10 – 20 great articles and 70 average ones.

40 cents daily for a year’s work pff… – you might say. And yes you’re right it’s not a huge sum of money. But the real beauty of Triond is that it’s not a get rich fast scheme, but more of an investment. You see, even if I stopped writing now I would still get my 10 bucks monthly, because people still read my articles. Now imagine if you had 1000 articles (2 – 3 years of work if you write daily) you’d get 200 – 500 dollars a month (but having in mind that your articles would get more popular overtime and you’d have more fans overtime, you’d get even more). Not a bad investment I’d say. Even better, these approximations apply only if you’re an average guy, who writes average stuff, article a day and so on. However, I know people who write a couple of articles a day. They write excellent articles and most importantly – they enjoy it. That is why they get 500 – 1000 dollars monthly or even more.

So in conclusion, Triond is more of an investment than a fast way to get money. You can’t make a fortune in a minute, a day, a month or even a year, but if you enjoy writing, work hard and improve you can get a decent revenue, or even a minimum wage from your articles. Of course, it’s a lot of work, but believe me, when you, after a couple of years of writing, will go on a holiday of your dreams from the money you earned writing, you will not regret all the hard work.

So once again we tackle one of the most important questions for all of you internet writers – how to write good titles. This time let’s look at some tips for what a good title should have.

Benefits for the Readers

The idea behind this is very simple – write titles, which show benefits that you have in store for your readers or website visitors. For instance, if you write about earning money using google AdSense, don’t write a title, which sounds boring and doesn’t include anything for the reader. For example, a title like Earning Money With Your Website Using Google AdSense is bad, because it’s boring and it doesn’t show how the reader could benefit from your article or website. Thus it’s better to write something like Learn to Earn Some Sweet Cash With Google AdSense. It sounds natural, easy to remember and it shows how readers can benefit from your website.

3 Page Rule

So how do you check if your title is not too common (after all, there’s nothing worse than a tittle, which is overused)? Use the so-called 3 Page Rule – check your title in Google and see how many pages of identical or very similar titles there are. If there are almost no identical titles – it’s a green light for your title.

So that’s all for today, thanks for reading!

PS. after writing this stuff I realised that the title of this whole series is also not perfect. Yeah it’s interesting, and eye-catching having in mind that it’s about internet marketing. However, from the title alone you can’t tell what the post is all about. Hey, but that’s not the end of the world, because there’s such a thing as tags, which will clearly indicate what your post is all about. So I guess a final tip for you is innovation > information for titles.
