How can you get started and make money online by writing content as a beginning writer? Here are some tips,
1. Start a Blog
If you are interested in writing and want to make money online by writing content, I suggest you set up a blog. Blogging can help you develop your content writing skills and build your audience. Start by posting weekly roundup articles. Share your experience of that week or write about how much money you earned that week. You can write on specific Niches like Online Business, Cryptocurrency, Travel or any other.
You can monetize and start making money with any type of blog using many different ways. Placing Affiliate and CPC/CPM ads are the most popular way to earn money using blogs. In case of the personal blog, you can also add “Hire me” button on your blog’s menu or sidebar or any other visible location. I have seen many bloggers who also accept donations.
2. Write a Guest Post
If you are really a “content person” you probably have got a few blogs on your must-read list. You can pitch those bloggers to write a guest post. There are lots of blogs that accept guest posts and many pays for the guest posts as well. Familiarize yourself with the blog and its posting guidelines, and make your guest post pitch. If accepted by such blogs, you have another way to make money by writing articles or content online. If you are interested in Web/Tech, W3stuffs also accept guest posts.
You can Google “write for us” or “submit guest post” to find websites that accept Guest Posts.
3. Write a List Post or List Article
This is one of the most interesting and easiest ways to make money by content writing. By the term “List Post” you may already know or have seen this type of content.

It is very easy to find the content on the internet, have you ever asked anything on Quora? Why not ask these? You can get amazing materials for the contents on sites like Quora, Wikipedia, and many other journal sites.
so why not get paid to write it down?
Sites like Listverse and TopTenz pay for top 10 lists, and plenty of other pop-culture sites thrive on list articles. Figure out who’s hiring, and start pitching.
You can even write a list style script for YouTube videos.
4. Publish Your Book
Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing can be the best option for you to make money by writing books. Start with short stories collection, essays etc. When your book is ready, upload it to make it Kindle-ready and start selling on Amazon. Spend your time on marketing your Amazon link. Promote your book on your personal blog by creating a banner ad. And don’t forget to fill up the “website” field of most of the social media profile.
5. Write for Content Sites
Contents you find on the internet from How-to-articles to funny quotes are created by content writers. There are many websites that pay you to write very short and simple contents. Start using sites like Crowdsource, Upwork, Fiverr to find such jobs. You can get good freelance writing jobs for beginners but you can move on to better-paying opportunities once you improve your skills.
