How to Earn $2,000 per Month by Writing Articles that Pay 10 Cents per Word

Let’s do some basic math.

Can you write 5,000 words per week?

If so, you have the potential to earn $2,000 per month if you write solely for markets that pay 10 cents per word.

In 50 Markets that Pay FreelanceWriters 10 Cents per Word, I provide author guidelines and contact information for 50 magazines, newspapers, websites, and e-zines that pay 10 cents per word for every article you write.

Let’s say that you are an inexperienced writer who doesn’t know where to start. What kinds of articles could you write for such publications? What might a typical week of writing for such publications look like?
Here is one possibility:
  • For a newsletter devoted to frugal living: An 800-word article on how you slashed your family’s clothing budget in half without sacrificing good taste or fashion ($80);
  • For a parenting magazine: A 1,200-word article on how to raise bilingual children ($120);
  • For an arts and crafts magazine: An 800-word profile of a local artist ($80);
  • For a pet magazine: A 1,500-word holiday gift-guide for dogs ($150);
  • For a surfing magazine: A 700-word article about a cool surfing experience you had ($70).

Can you see yourself writing the above?
If so, you are well on your way to earning a cool $500 per week, just by combining your personal interests and experiences with a bit of research. The above examples are all ideas taken from the author guidelines and other information you will have access to in my new e-book, 50 Markets that Pay Freelance Writers 10 Cents per Word.
