5 Ways To Make $1,000 A Month Online

If you are looking to make some extra income then this is the post for you. It is possible for you to earn $1,000 a month right from the comforts of your own home. There is no limit on how much you could earn depending on how quickly you can turn out content. You may not get rich writing for all of these sites but you can pad your bank account.

Here are 5 sites that can help you on your money making quest.

1. Write for eHow.

You can bring in almost $1000 a month by just writing 2 eHow articles a day for a month. Demand studios pays authors to write “How to” articles for its eHow website. The company pays $15 per article to writers. A writer that writes 3 articles per day for 30 days a week could net himself $900 per month in income. That’s a pretty sizeable chump of income for writing a few articles a day.

2. Become a consultant for Elance.

Elance is like a brokerage site for freelance writers. You can apply for writing jobs on Elance and earn anywhere from $5 to $100 depending on the writing assignment. The lower paying jobs are normally very short assignments and are much easier to get done. You could either take on 100 lower paying jobs or just take a couple higher paying gigs. There are over 36,000 jobs on the Elance website. That’s more than enough to keep you writing day after day.

3. Write for Helium.

Helium pays the lowest fixed rate of any site but the site does offer writers a share of potential revenue. Pay rates average 50 cents to $3.50 on the main Helium site and ad revenue depends on page views. There is no use bothering with writing for the traditional Helium site. You can make a lot more money writing for Helium’s Marketplace section. At Helium’s Marketplace, you are given a title, subject, and guidelines as to the topic to write on. The pay for this section ranges from $20 to $200 per article.

4. Become a Delegate2/Pure Content Writer

Delegate2 provides content for a number of sites on the net. The company has writers with varying backgrounds from new college grads to experienced writers. You can apply online at the Delegate 2 website. The lowest pay rate runs about $3 per 250 words. Most new writers will earn at least $4. If you write just over 8 short 250 word articles a day, you could make an extra $1,000 a month. Many assignments pay more than the $4 minimum rate.

5. Write for Yovia.


Yovia is different in that you actually set up a blog on the company’s site. On Yovia’s site, you choose your niche and start contributing content to the site. It is then your job to promote your blog and draw traffic to the site via social media. Your pay depends upon how large a following you can generate using email, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms. If you can draw a lot of followers, your pay rate could be rather high. There are currently over 5,500 Yovia bloggers hosting 11,450 blogs on the Yovia site.


  1. Great resource! I’m not that prolific of a writer and time is strapped with the new baby, but great to know there are options out there!

  2. It’s nice to find some of the other sites that I didn’t know about before. Sounds like everyone has options available to them if they are willing to put in the effort.

  3. What about Fiverr? I heard a lot of people making big money on Fiverr, but only when they reach the Top level.

  4. You really can write and make money doing it. Take your skills and turn them into writing! You can do it everyone!

  5. Elance is my favorite way to make money online. Being a student, it provides the flexibility and steady income to help pay for school and other expenses.

    Hi Mark, You always give great advice. I remember reading your “how to start a blog…” over three years ago, when I started mine and here we still stand. Thanks for your insight, I also was worried for a minute you stopped writing. Glad your back! Oh, I am also starting to write a book based on the premise of my blog and years of experience as a single mother raising a son. I found many success stories contrary to statistics. Got any advice whether to self publish or otherwise?
