The easiest way to make money online is to write articles. You can take what you know, and turn it into money making products. It takes a lot of work and it takes a lot of time, but it can become an income worth talking about.
While it isn't easy to do this, it can be very profitable. But some people think it isn't worth it. Take Helium for example. I make an average of 10 cents an article per month. That means I make about $1.20 an article a year. This isn't much for my article. The hope is that Helium will be around a long time and I will make lots of these throughout the life of the site, but this isn't a gurantee. However, I will be brining in money for articles that are already written and some of them will make a fair amount of money in their lifetime. Additionally, I can take the same information, change it some and share it on several sites.
One of my favorite writing sites. Here you can make 60% of the Google Adsense impressions (more with promoting hubs that are other peoples and getting people to sign up and work on Hubpages). Plus setting up the pages can be a lot of fun.
Here at ehow you earn through their revenue sharing. It isn't clear how it comes, but you can get a lot of traffic and write on anything you want. I have recently found out that this is site only pays US citizens.
Sadly this site only pays US citizens. However, here you can get an upfront payment on some articles, but you can also get performance pay based on the number of page impressions you receive during the month ($1.50 for every 1000 page impressions)

This site is a new one for me, but so far I have enjoyed it and think that it has great potential.
If you are thinking of working online as a small business. If you are willing to work even when it isn't worth it. If you are willing to work hard. If you are willing to share what you know and write a lot. Then you can make more then $1000 a month! However, you do have to do all of those things, plus be willing to give it a fair amount of time.
This is by far my best hub and I thank you all for making it possible. I am glad that so many people have enjoyed this hub and have done a wonderful job leaving great comments. I just thought I would add that as long as you keep at it these methods and tips work for anyone with passible writing skills in English. Earning online is one of my favorite things to write about, however it is my least profitable. Take this hub for example. It has gotten thousands of views in the past week, but the ads aren't usually ones people click on, therefore this hub doesn't make as much as one with ads that intice people to click. You can choose your topic according to what you think will make you more money, or do what I do an enjoy getting all sorts of traffic and working hard to make it all work.
This hub specifically talks about making $1000 a month, which I think is a very reasonable goal. My goals, however, are a little more then that. My goal is to be making $4000 a month by 2011. That is a minimum of $48,000 a year, which isn't too bad a goal. If you are interested in keep up to date on that goal then stop by my blog-Make Money Online.
