    I'm a college student looking to make some side money to help make my life more enjoyable. I started off with an article writing service on fiverr (2 articles for 5$ at first and then 1 for 5$ once my gig got a positive response and several satisfied re-turning customers.) but I find that making just 4 dollars per article (not spun ones mind you, hand written and well researched) was a turn off and I lost motivation (made about 50$ I guess over the course of a 10 days).

    What I want to know is, is there any way to make better money from writing articles for people? My English is pretty good (don't judge based on any grammatical errors that you may find in this post, im not really paying attention here.) and none of my customers have been disappointed with my work thus far.

    Also, if not articles, what else can i do without having to make any online payments? Due to the country I live in currently (India) I cannot use paypal to make payments as my paypal balance gets auto-withdrawn to my bank account every day. Further, I do not have a credit card (only debit).

    Paid blogging networks also known as pay per post are ok to start out with. Also look into the Yahoo Voices area and see what you can do there. You can easily make $100 per month if you can bring in the traffic and write proficiently. Other than that people would say do SEO and put Adsense on a site, but that is the most common and stupid penny earning way here. Think outside the box, the above ideas are just basic starters.

    Well, are these paid blogging sites really better than fiverr gigs? 4$ per 400-500 words is what i get from there

    Well $1/100 words is pretty much the standard price for article writing. You could start your own blog, research this forum on how to bring traffic to it and you can easily make a living of it, if you do your research and keep yourself motivated.

    Does starting my own blog not involve putting in an investment? I only have a debit card and cant really use it to pay for anything :/

    Do free blogs from blogger etc really make any money efficiently? I thought the ad revenue goes to the site that is letting you host the blog.

    You can go to Yahoo Voices and setup for free. Also, $10 investment might be required for you to start pumping "traffic" to the articles. $10 to mask earned or free surf traffic and push them to the articles and earn based on a ppv method. As it is Yahoo has no visitors from the web, but doing this will help rank your articles and get Yahoo and you exposure at the same time.

    You could get hold of some free spinning software, and learn how to MANUALLY spin articles to about 60 or 70 percent unique

    That way you can turn 1 article into 50 articles - takes about 2 hours, so even if you only charged $5 for 5 articles, it would be high paying

    There's a recent spinning thread on here somewhere - with a link to a video showing how to do it
