Now that you’ve set up both a Paypal Account (Deer, 2015, September 9) as well as a Payoneer account (Deer, 2015, September 10) to make it possible for you to withdraw funds easily from any ATM (Automated Teller Machine), you’re ready for the next stage of making money online.
Making money online is just like working in Jamaica. There are two (2) ways to make money while on the Internet:
- Selling a Product or a Service
- Working as a Freelance contractor
Either way you’ll need Internet to access in order to access the websites for either for these resources. For now, I’ll focus on working online (Voo, 2015) for websites related to making money from writing, my main Talent.
Here’s the listing of online writing websites you can start with:
- Article Teller
- Constant Content
- Content row
- Demand Studios
- Digital Journal
- Sponsored Reviews
- Yahoo Contributor Network
However, before you sign up, please make sure you have the following things in place!
Writing online – Checklist of Tools needed to be a successful Content Writer
Before you jump on the internet and access these websites, you’ll need to have a few things in place first. It’s best that you have Broadband Intent access, such as from FLOW Jamaica (Deer, 2014, July 8) at a minimum speed of 12MBps in order to maximize your potential at making money online.
You’ll also need a Desktop computer or a Laptop with a Mouse, as you’ll have to do a lot of Internet surfing on various websites. You’ll also need a Notebook or Journal to keep Track of all your Online Accounts and Passwords, as you may end up working on one or more websites in order to start making money from your ventures.
Finally, before you can even log on and sign up to any of these website, you’ll need a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service, which is basically an ISP in another country (Deer, 2014, September 20) that you can purchase online.
This makes it possible for you to appear to be in the US of A while in Jamaica and facilitates your access to American content such as streaming online video (Deer, 2015, September 1) Service such as Hulu or Netflix as well as accessing online websites.
Making money via US Writing websites – Book writing for the experienced writer
Once all are in place and you’re VPN has been checked out, you can then logon on to these websites, sign up and read what they have to offer. If you have significant experiencing at writing content on demand and at least four (4) hour per day to dedicate to this venture, then you’ll be able to be up and running in a few months making money online via these websites.
You’ll discover other online resources for making money from your writing as you get more experienced and explore the internet. Other options include writing your own book (Deer, 2015, August 8) and most of these resource are free. Some you might have to pay for using a Credit Card or a Scotia VISA Debit Card (Deer, 2012, February 13) or CIBC VISA Debit Card.
Be warned though; writing a book really only works if you’re writing about sex and romance or doing an adult colouring book (Deer, 2015, July 18), which is all the rage with adults trying to relax and being nostalgic and reconnecting with their youth.
Please remember dear reader sharing is caring so share this post with as many people that you know who have an interest in writing.
