Writing for eHow

Make Money Writing for eHow!

UPDATE: Unfortunately, the eHow writers compensation program is now CLOSED. All articles currently submitted to eHow, are submitted through the Demand Studios website.

I've been writing for eHow since the end of March, 2008. When you write for eHow, you retain ownership of your article. eHow uses a formula to pay writers a percentage of profits from advertisements. I've tried many other paid writing websites including: Triond, Helium, Hubpages, Associated Content, Constant Content, myLot, textbroker and freelance sites. For me, eHow and Constant Content yield the highest earnings.

A few of the articles I've published with eHow have gotten #1 google rankings! I was rather shocked, but google seems to love eHow articles.

I don't like hype so, I'll tell you exactly what to expect. I have one article that made over $20 in 3 months and it is still earning. I have a few more articles that have earned almost $10 in 2 months and they are still earning. On average, I earn $1 per month per article. I currently have 44 articles and I expect to earn approximately $40 this month. Last month I had 30 articles and earned $30. The same for the month prior, 20 articles ad earned $20. So, earnings have been very consistent.

The best thing about eHow is the passive income. If I stopped writing today, I would continue to bring in money from my existing articles.

How to Earn Money on eHow

This is how I earn money on eHow. It seems to work well for me.

First, sit down and write a few articles. The eHow form makes it quite easy. It doesn't take a lot of effort. Just make sure you write about something you know well. Also, make sure you spell check your articles. Try to get at least 5 written initially.

If you have a Digg account, you can submit them to Digg, but don't go to a lot of trouble promoting your articles initially.

After your articles have been out there at least a month, calculate the earnings per view. To do this, take the total earnings for the article and divide it by the number of page views. Figure out which articles are earning the most per view.

Use what you've learned to your advantage. Write more eHow articles in the categories that are earning well for you. Also, I take my top earning articles each month and promote them to forums and answer websites.

Keep writing! Keep calculating the pay per view on your articles each month and see what is working for you!
