1. Writing for Revenue Sharing Article Writing Websites
This is one of the most popular writing platforms online.  There are numerous article writing websites that allow people to write articles and submit them to many websites.  These websites earn money from various types of advertisements placed around your article on the web page.  These websites share a portion of the earnings made from these ads.  The percentage will vary from one website to another.  Your articles will earn you money depending on the performance of the articles, which is measured by how many clicks and page views they generate.  If you are looking for a consistent passive income stream from article writing then these websites can be the best option for you.  These websites are also known as residual income websites because of the potential to get paid many times for the same piece of writing.

These revenue sharing writing websites operate on two methods: PPC (Pay Per Click) which is also known as CPC (Cost Per Click) and CPM (Cost Per Mile).  When readers click on any ad placed in the form of text, banner, image, or even audio and video on your article, the article earns revenue just from users clicking on the ad.  So the more clicks your articles get the more money you will make.  Your article will need a lot of traffic in order to make any real money from this method.  With CPM method your article will generate revenue whenever any visitor visits your article.  This means that the articles will earn revenue simply from page views and does not rely on users actually clicking on things.  So the more page views an article gets, the more profitable the article will be.  However, both these methods are considered to be unfair by many writers due to the disparity of effort between the writer and website owner.

But many like these methods because writers can earn money for an unspecified period of time lasting from a few months, to several years.  As long as these websites will continue to exist and are willing to pay, writers can earn residual income and passive income from article writing.

Below is described what passive and residual income from article writing is.

Passive and Residual Income Methods

Passive Income from Article WritingPassive income is the income that you earn again and again from an initial investment in something, such as time, effort, or money.  After your initial investment there is no further action required by you other than occasional participation in an activity that generates money.

With regard to passive income from writing articles online, you write once but earn again and again from the articles only needing to promote as well as update them occasionally.  Residual income is another name for passive income, and many use both terms interchangeably.  In article writing, you can earn money from your articles as long as people will read your articles or click ads on it.  You can create a nice opportunity for a stream of passive income by writing for these residual income writing websites.

2. Write for Upfront Pay Websites
This is another model many websites use in order to pay you for articles.  You get paid upfront for an approved article.  Payment can be any amount and range from less than a $ to $100 or more per article depending on the length of your article and the popularity of the topic.  This is great for writers who need instant cash and many writers are taking advantage of this opportunity.  In order to earn good money from this method, you will need to produce high quality and non-plagiarized content (content that is duplicated from other sources).

The site you are on right now (YurTopic) is actually an Upfront Pay website that buys great articles.

3. Write Articles for Others
There are many website owners, bloggers, and writers in general who are too busy to write their own content for their websites.  That is why they turn to freelance article writers to get the content for their websites.  Besides, there are many people who need fresh content for their websites that are geared towards all types of niches.  They usually post article writing jobs on various article writing websites.  These websites list various writing projects posted by clients in database form.  You have to pick an available article writing project that suits your expertise as well as something you are sure you can really deliver on.  Once written, you submit the article for approval from the client and the last step is getting paid for your work.

4. Submit Your Articles to Sell and Earn Money
These article writing websites are often referred to as content or article marketplaces where buyers (clients looking for content), and sellers (freelance article writers) gather to buy and sell articles.  You can write any article and then submit it to these article marketplaces.  A summary of your article will be displayed to potential buyers or customers, and if they like it they will hopefully buy your article.  The great advantage with these websites is that you can set the price for your article as long as it is within the price constraints set by the particular marketplace.  Rules are commonly based on word count and the genre of the article.  It is important to know that many content or article writing websites have strict editorial standards that your article must live up to.

5. Article Writing For Clients at Freelance Bidding Websites
