How to earn a four figure income from writing year after year

If you are a keen freelance writer chances are you are doing it to make some extra cash. By extra cash I mean a four figure income. It is much easier than you think to earn a 4 figure income from writing year after year. So how do you go about earning thousands of dollars from writing each year. There are many ways you can earn thousands of dollars, a four figure income from freelance writing.

A four figure income from freelance writing the hard way!!

Earning a four figure income on Associated Content. If you are an associated content writer who does not get paid upfront payments you can earn thousands of dollars per year from your performance payments. However if you are a clout 1-6 then you need to get around 56000 page views per month to enable you to earn $84 per month and $1008 in one year. That is alot of pageviews and would require alot of writing. Even if you were a clout 10 you and received $2 per 1000 views, you would still require 42000 pageviews a month.

Some easier ways to earn a four figure income from writing

1) Earning a four figure income from Helium.com. Even if you do not enter a contest or sell a marketplace article you can still earn a four figure income from Helium easier than what you could at AC. It goes without saying that if you did win contests and sell marketplace articles you could make thousands easier. Anyway back to the average writer who cannot win a writing contest or sell an article. It is possible to earn thousands of dollars from Helium each year because Helium pay all their writers upfront payments if they have a writing star. Now say you have four writing stars this means you qualify for $2 per article and $3 for empty titles. By writing 400 articles in a year, 200 at $2 an article, and 200 at $3 an article you earn $1000 for upfront payments alone. 400 articles a year is around 33 articles a month. Now you would not need to write as much as this as you will be earning page view payments for your articles and you may sell an article through stock content. This is a much easier way to earn thousands of dollars year after year from freelance writing.

2) Mahalo.Com

Mahalo is a site I have just joined recently, and the earning potential is endless. You can earn from answering questions, tasks, managing pages and creating how to articles. Mahalo pays you a percentage of the adsense revenue from the pages you manage. They also pay you sometimes as much as $12 for creating a page. Many users are making thousands of dollars per month from this site. I will give updates after I have used to site for a while.

3) Google adsense- I will consider adsense again, as I have posted over and over again how much money I make from it. I do earn a four figure income from google adsense every year.

4) Freelance writing job sites such as odesk, guru, elance and getafreelancer

Earning a four figure income from writing is easier than you think. Get started now and earn thousands of dollars from freelance writing each year.

Hi, this is Nicole from Rent a Coder.

While earning a four figure income from writing may be profitable to some, there is potential to earn a lot more. Earnings can depend on the service that you use and services like odesk, guru, elance and getafreelancer for example could influence both your satisfaction and earnings. I'll explain:

Fees:

Odesk for example, charges 10% for all types of projects versus 6.5-10% on Rent a Coder. So we let you keep more of your money and if you bring a repeat buyer from Odesk, you're guaranteed a cheaper 9% maximum rate (and perhaps lower - see http://www.rentacoder.com/RentACoder/dotnet/Docs/FindersFeeComissionSchedule.aspx). Guru also charges 10% in fees (5% if you pay for upgraded membership) plus $29.95/quarter - $129.95/quarter in fees. Then workers on Guru are charged a 2% fee for arbitration. They're also charged 2.5% if the buyer uses Pay Pal, or charged up to 4% if the buyer uses a credit card. Freelancer charges 10% in worker fees too. (3% if you pay for upgraded membership).

Bid Limits:

Since bidding strongly affects earnings, it's important to work with a service that doesn't restrict your ability to bid. Workers on Elance for example, cannot place more than 10 bids a month unless they pay a subscription fee ($10/month for 20, $20/month for 40 or $40/month for 60). It also charges workers a monthly subscription fee of $10/month - $40/month to show test results on their profiles. Workers on Guru cannot place more than 10 bids a month unless they pay a subscription fee ($29.95-$99.95/quarter for 100 bids for a person, $38.94-$129.94/quarter for 100 bids for a company). Then workers on Freelancer cannot place more than 15 bids a month unless they pay a subscription fee (which also reduces their commission fee from 10% to 3%).

Our service, Rent a Coder, does allows completely free, unlimited bidding -- ultimately maximizing your potential to earn.

There are other differences as well. I invite you and your visitors to compare the 7 major services through this link to learn even more: http://www.rentacoder.com/RentACoder/DotNet/misc/CompetitorInformation/WhyRentACoder_ForSellers.aspx
