As artists, we have to find different ways to support our dreams. I’ve heard it said so many times that you need to diversify when it comes to investments, but you also need to diversify when it comes to creating income. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket, so they say. One of the projects I’ve been working on is checking out places online that I can create legitimate income. I’m not into get rich quick scams and schemes. During the past 2 weeks I signed up with multiple article directories and blog sites that offer a chance to create revenue for myself. Any writers, video makers, photographers, and podcasters who are looking for cool sites should take a look at these. Some were familiar to me, others I never heard of.
I figure I’ll work these sites hard for the next few months then report back on the results. In the meantime, I thought I should share. Half of these I discovered through the blogs of fellow writers. It is so important for writers and all artists to network any way possible- build up your resources to draw from.
Two sites which I am excited about are:
1. Bukisa.com This is a unique article directory site that gives you the opportunity to earn revenues not only for your own articles, videos, audio clips, slides and photos (soon) but for content posted by others in your network. If you are interested in learning about how it is done, you can follow this link: http://www.bukisa.com/join/3105 That is my personal link so if you do sign up (there are no fees or anything like that), by going through that link you would join my network. It looks pretty cool and the site has a great “Learn More” page.
2. Today.com This is actually a blogging site that pays you $1 per original 100+ word post each day. You also get paid $2 per thousand unique page impressions, so the more traffic you get the more you get paid. Again there is no cost to sign up for one of their blogs. You just register to become a VIP Blogger. Follow this link if you are interested: (they offer a $5 referral bonus for anyone who qualifies as a VIP blogger – so you can also refer people to the site and earn a few bucks when you sign up ;-)
The blogs are built on a WordPress base but there are Adsense links and different advertising that comes up on your site. You may actually have the option to leave the Adsense off, I’m not sure. I don’t know about you but I can put out 100 words pretty easily. In case you’re interested, my blog on the site is www.launchyourdream.today.com. You do have to narrow it down to one category to post for. Not sure if you can multiple revenue earning blogs through them or not.
The other sites I’m excited to see results for are:
www.AssociatedContent.com . I’d heard a little about this site. It appears to be pretty well respected. There a couple different options to earn through this site. And a lot of the writing I noticed was top-notch.
www.Helium.com – this one I’ve looked into many times but was a little intimidated by. Now I know I’m ready to get serious.
Others you’ve probably heard of: www.ehow.com and www.ezinearticles.com.
Do you have sites you use to either earn income from or that really helps to build your name? Be sure to post a comment and let us all know.
