What Do You Need to Do to Make Money Online Through Writing?
A person who starts writing content think of ways of making money online and come across the following questions:
Q1. Which will be the best resource for me to make money online through writing?
Q2. What should I write about to attract readers towards my writing platform?
Q3. How can I find the right readers (my target audience)?
Q4. What should I do to engage readers with my writing platform?
Q5. In how many ways can I earn a good sum of money online?
Bloggers succeeding in answering the preceding questions successfully have made a lot of money and earned a high return for their efforts. Today, top bloggers are earning $100,000 per month and you will also be included in the list of top bloggers if you follow the following 5 simple steps (steps that will answer the preceding questions one by one) correctly:
Step 1: “The Best Resource Is a Blogging Platform”
People interested in making money online through writing will need a resource to start writing. The best writing resource for a writer is a blogging platform. “WordPress” and “Blogger” are the most popular blogging platforms to blog for money online. You should own the “WordPress” or “Blogger” website, and for doing this, you will need a custom domain name and web hosting space.
You will have to choose and register a custom domain name for a year or two (you will also need to pay for the renewal of the domain name once the registration time period expires). You will also pay for an amount of web hosting space per month with yearly contracts for storing your files. Names of a few domain name registrars and web hosting companies are Namecheap, GoDaddy, and 1&1.
*A good custom domain name is one that is short, memorable, without hyphens, and relevant to a website.
*A good web host is one that has a web host uptime not less than 99.5%, allows adding multiple domains, offers refunds for not providing the desired value, and has an easy-to-use hosting control panel.
Step 2: “Write What Readers Want to Read”
You will not only be writing to make money online but also for readers landing on your blog searching for the topic of their interests. The interesting and original information can mesmerize readers. It does not mean you should adopt only persuasive and explanatory styles for writing. Readers may be interested in reading a funny story, biography, controversial topic, and so on. In-Depth internet research can help you find out what readers exactly want to read.

Step 3: “Content-Type and Keywords Determine the Target Audience”
This is an important step. If you do not follow this step correctly, you will ruin your dream of making a large sum of money online through writing. Content-type will determine your target audience. For example, if you are writing about fashion trends, your target audience will be the readers who follow fashion. Typing content keywords online will land you towards the relevant and popular blogs where you can leave comments with a link to your site, create relevant guest posts (if the website permits guest post creation) with a backlink to your website, and answer readers’ questions (if they have asked) with the reference to your written post if it’s relevant to their queries.

Step 4: “Relentlessly Respond, Offer Something of Value, and Engage Readers”
If you see the target audience (the right readers) are coming to your website and commenting on your written posts, you should respond to their comments. If readers have queries for you, you should answer their queries intelligently to win their trust. You should offer something new and interesting to readers in your content to build engagement of readers with your written posts. Practically speaking: responding to readers, inspiring readers, and answering readers’ questions develop a good relationship between readers and writers.

Step 5: “A Variety of Ways to Earn Money Online”
Writing can help you make money in many ways. If readers regularly visit your website and like your posts, you can sign up for Google AdSense Program (That Allows People to Place a Relevant Ad on Their Websites after Signing up For Free) and earn money. Signing up on affiliate networks and promoting affiliate products through links, reviews, and promotional content can also help you win a large sum of money. Amazon.com Associates, ClickBank, and Rakuten LinkShare are world-famous affiliate networks. You can also write useful eBooks and sell your eBooks on your website through promotion.
