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.

These days many people underestimate the power of making money with blogs. And that’s unfortunate because blogs offer an oportunity for anyone to enjoy the pleasure of  writing about your favourite subject  even getting some cash in the process. Even better, if you are ready to put some work in it you can make a relatively decent income from blogging. But how can you make money with blogging?

It’s easy – you can make money blogging by posting advertisements on your blog or marketing and advertising various products. Of course there are more options, for instance selling content, selling various services and so on, but they require more experience, so let’s just skip them for now.

So how do you earn money by using ads on your blog?  Every time someone views a page you have and advertisement on, you will get some small revenue. Even better, if someone clicks the advertisement, you will gain even more money. One of the best ways to earn money with advertisements is by using Google Adsense, which is a completely free service. All you have to do is install Google Adsense ads on your blog and create a Google Adsense account. It’s needless to say that there are other possibilities when it comes to gaining money by placing ads on your site. Just type PPC advertising or CPM advertising in google and you’ll find what you need.

The hardest part though is not earning but getting traffic to your blog. One of the most simple yet useful techniques is creating a web of blogs about the same subject and connecting them with links. Or of course you can always focus on one good blog and post often. Blogs usually take a good position on the search engine result lists, so if you blog often you should eventually get some traffic.

Now don’t get me wrong – even though it’s not hard to earn a couple of bucks, you will not get rich instantly using these techniques. But let’s face it there’s simply no easy way of getting rich instantaneously on the web (well unless you win a lottery or something like that). However, if you really work hard, enjoy blogging and make good posts, and are ready to develop your blog, you might earn a decent income out of it. Then of course you can create a website or use more advanced earning techniques for blogs and earn more. It’s all in your hands. Good luck earning!

Everyone knows that in order to get traffic you have to produce great quality content, but is it always the most important thing? Another important way of getting traffic is, of course, producing a lot of content. So what is more important – quality or quantity? The answer is – it depends.

It depends on what kind of content you create, what popularity your website, articles or blog has and how much free time do you have. But one thing is constant – you have to create a lot of content as well as good content.

One of the biggest enemies of new bloggers or website creators is a constant feeling that they are wasting their time, when they get no traffic. And the reasons or natural, new bloggers usually are obsessed with creating quality content. Whereas sometimes quantity is as important as quality.

It’s important to catch your fan base and constant traffic by updating your blog or website regularly. The best way to do this is to create as much content as possible early on. That means that it’s always a good idea to create shorter and good posts than very good but only a few.

If you’re like most of the bloggers or website creators you will not get thousands of views for one great article, thus, it’s always important to write many articles or posts. Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to write bad quality content.

The best way is to find a harmony between writing a lot of articles or posts and writing with quality. From what I experienced and found out, the best way to do this is making a schedule of when you will write specific articles. For instance, every weekday you can write short posts on your blog, whereas on weekends explode with a great big article. Another way is creating article series or blog categories – some for short and simple posts and articles, others for long posts, which need a lot of research and so on.

All in all, the best way to find out what works best for you is by a little experiment. Try writing short simple articles and posts for a week and then switch to more serious stuff for the following week. Then, after all of this work, check which week is more succesful. Thanks for reading!
