If you looking for how to make extra money writing articles online, this article will guide you through. We will unveil the top ten websites that will pay you to write for them. But before we start, I need to make something absolutely clear, there is so many misleading information out there on this topic and it can be very frustrating to finally find what you were searching for but then discover that the content differs from what the headlines present.

Before writing this post I searched for “How to make money writing articles online”  and most of what I find out was far from normal, so I decided to write this articles to help those who are actively looking for how to make money writing articles online. I have used almost all of them and I can guarantee you that if you read through and follow every suggestions in this articles you will be making good money writing articles online.

Things you should consider as we progress:

Before writing to any of the websites below, make sure you read up to 5 articles on the website, understand their guidelines and style before sending in a post. The reason most writers fail to succeed online even with their talents is that most of them present their writing to the wrong audience, and expect to get good feedback; for instance,  if you have an article on relationship and send it to websites that publish only political news, your article will not be accepted.

  1. Hello,

    I came across your website and it was really informative, i am not a writer i wish i could be, i learnt how to make money online using bitcoin faucets with some strategies i learnt online and some i developed. I was able to convert my bitcoin earnings to naira on an exchange site.
    I want people to learn how to earn as well, also getting referrals will be a plus for me, although i did not use refferals to earn.I did it on my own. I want to know if i can post an article on my experience and how much i will be paid for it.

  2. Nice post.
    Please since nigerians can’t use some online payment options such as PayPal, how can I go about selling websites on flippa

    • You can receive money from Flippa straight into your bank account. There are many options. One of them is bank wire if you use Flippa Escrow

  3. No doubt a well written article that will go on to help turn lives around. Am an experienced writer with massive years of experience, when i come across a worthy piece, i should be in a position to tell

    Kudos guys

  4. Great website with interesting contents. I am a writer that currently write for some companies similar to yours. It seems your company prefers stories on personal experience than anything else. I have series of personal experiences on my business sojourn (Especially in the world of forex). I would like to know if you look out for such articles and of what value is it to make money.ng. Must the article only be about positive experiences or any is accepted?

  5. This is bullshit. I was looking for websites within Nigeria – not some foreign rippers. Most articles, even by top experts, are rejected. They only use the high pay as a bait, knowing the chances of you succeeding is less than slim. Frankly, I think the author of this article doesn’t have the interest of anyone in his heart as he claimed. He is only trying to make money from the referral links he post for those website. No one should waste their time on this bullshit.
    There are many alternatives to these sites: iWriter, Writers-Domain.net, Topcontent.com, and much more. just make your research. Nothing in this article will help you. He’s only selling his referral links. What a shame!

    • What are you saying? This author does not own Makemoney and there is no affiliate or paid referral link in this article. If you understand, you could simply click on any link and monitor the url instead of dropping your hate here

    • Thanks a lot for sharing your honest observation. I suspected that the high prices are just a bait to. And what is the guarantee that one’s article will be accepted.
      The writer should have been a little honest and realistic instead of saying- sure websites…as if it’s a 100% assurance.

  6. Thank you very much. This is nice.
    I would like to write opinion articles for Guardian. I need clarification please. Does it mean I can write any opinion and sell to them?
    Then, for COSMOPOLITAN Can, do they accept fictions?
    I would like these answers please.
    Best Regards.

  8. this has been so helpful ,am also working on an article how to earn money online trading on,forex i hope i can sell it here if it suits your reviees

  9. You did not include payment methods, because PayPal does not accept Nigeria to withdraw from it.

  10. Really informative
    I’m a writer and I have some articles.
    I don’t know if I can post it here and how much will I be paid for it.
