How to write paid articles
What once were article marketing and paid to write sites have now become Content Marketplace .
The concept, in reality, is always the same: these are virtual places where aspiring editors and copywriters make themselves available to companies that require content of any kind, the system which allows you to write articles and get paid .
Why use content marketplaces?
If you don’t have the time and the desire to manage your own website, if you don’t want to break your head between html codes, CMS, templates, plugins and potential attacks, you can take advantage of the content marketplaces to simply take care of the content editing.
You will not have to search for the topics to write about: the clients (companies or individuals) will request the contents on specific topics and categories, also indicating the keywords to use. Furthermore, if you know how to write well, you will be able to have a direct relationship with the companies that will contact you for their contents.
Why is it not convenient to use marketplaces?
Because often the earnings are not very high. Furthermore, the quality of the contents is not always appreciated, and sometimes “who is faster is more appreciated”.
The direct texts on the texts are clearly sold and you will not be able to request authorship: working for the content marketplaces you will become a ghost writer and you will not know the statistics and views of your articles.
Virtually every year I have dealt with this topic, and every year I always try to provide updates on the situation in Italy for those who want to create articles and earn without owning a website.
