Make a Living Online – Writing Articles Part 1
I have been receiving questions both through email and on Facebook, Among the many ways to earn online, what is the easiest one in your opinion. The truth is this is the same question I have in mind back in 2010. And the answer had led me to the business I now have – Your Offshore Team | Virtual Assistant Philippines.
To those who are first time here, make sure to visit this post and be inspired by some people who already are making money online.
What I am about to share in this post is my personal system, a secret sauce I must say. This post is specifically written for Filipinos who are wanting to make a living online. When I say ALL, I mean ALL the stuff you are about to read from here are proven and are no scam. Keep in mind that there is no such thing as

Chapter 1: Earn Through Article Writing – Selling your Articles
You will learn here where to find people that are willing to pay 2$ to 8$ per 400 to 600 word article, that is around Php 175 to Php 350, some are even higher. That is per article, which means the more articles you write, the more money you make! A lot of times these people are actually willing to hire you as an article writer if you are really good at it!
My first and foremost recommendation is to visit onlinejobs.ph. The site OnlineJobs.ph has partnered with thousands of companies in the US, Australia, Singapore, Canada, the UK and other English speaking countries who are looking to hire Filipinos for full-time or part-time work.
You must create an account on the site so that both the job posting and the contact information can be viewed. Without an account you cannot view the contact information! See the image below to better understand.

Alright this is all for now, wait for my next post wherein we will discuss the 2nd Chapter, How to Write an Article. Included in the 2nd part are;
- How to write an article that you are not familiar with.

If you already are familiar or have been writing articles for some time now make sure to visit this post here that talks about driving people to your articles or websites.
This is how I started as well. Just would like to add that you need to have your own paypal account in order to receive payments from your clients.
Paypal is not an only option. However, some clients only pay through it. If you will use Paypal, make sure you secure your account from hackers. My Paypal account got hacked… Now my clients pay directly to my bank account.
“Thank you for posting this information and guide to those who might be interested in writing.

This is really a good post. I am earning through oDesk. I was an article writer and now, I am focusing on audio/video transcription. It feels really good to earn a hard-earned money online than from a quick one.
