How To Earn Money Writing How To Articles

At eHow you don’t have to be a professional writer to earn cash for your writing; you just have to be knowledgeable about a topic and passionate enough to share your writing with the world. Join eHow’s Writer Compensation Program, write How To articles about what you know, and start making money today!

* Must be a U.S resident, age 18 or older with valid tax payer identification.


Sadly, if you are not a resident of the USA then forget about eHow. You can, of course, use it as a marketing tool to promote your writing, just like any other article directory. As they pay using Paypal there seems no good reason not to accept writers from other countries, but that's just how it is.

If you are a US resident then this brief snippet from eHow FAQ will be of interest.


Q. What is my payment based on?

A. You get paid per article. Your article's earning potential can be based on a combination of several elements, including the amount of times it's been viewed and its category. The more useful your articles are to the reader, the more money you could make. Check out our tips and guidelines, like adding photos, and eHow's most-requested topics page for How To ideas.

Q. How soon will I get paid after I submit each article?

A. All payments for work displayed on your My Earnings page during that month will be deposited into your personal PayPal account before the end of the following month. If you earn less than $10 over the year, you'll be paid via PayPal at year's end. Once you've joined eHow's Writer's Compensation Program, you can keep track of how much money you've earned by visiting your My Earnings page.

Q. What is the pay range per article?

A. Technically, there is no pay range per article. Simply put: The more useful your articles are to readers, the more money you could make. One good way to attract a larger audience and possibly make more money is by adding photos to your articles. Our tips and guidelines and eHow's most-requested topics page will help you get started.


Therefore, unlike other online publishing websites a writer really has no idea of how much an article could earn nor will earn. I cannot find any formula that would serve as a useful guide.

On the plus side, eHow gets a lot of traffic. As of writing, Alexa ranks it at 550, and eHow is currently getting nearly double the reach of AssociatedContent. So whether you're doing it for the money or as a marketing tool, eHow is worth submitting to.
