Freelancing 101|XIIB

You have written hundreds of great blog posts, articles and a wealth of Hub or Squidoo pages. Now you are interested in getting more traffic to them and make them more visible.  However, you want to maximize your opportunities to earn money so you are looking at options that are available. While it is true that Twitter, Redditt, StumbleUpon and other bookmarking sites can result in more page views, what you may not know is that there are social networking sites that you can earn from as well. Here are a few suggestions.

WikiNut – This is a combination of a social and content site. The interesting thing about Wikinut is that there are some great categories, great writers and you earn “Wikinut Points” as well as pennies. Do not expect to get rich on Wikinut postings, but if you use it properly, you can gain a lot of extra page hits (and a few extra pennies).

RedGage – Now some of you will remember that I wrote a post about giving up on RedGage. But, that doesn’t exclude the fact that they do in fact pay for work. If you know what you are doing and you are interested in earning a few extra dollars, you can use RedGage effectively.  The more you can use photographs, video, etc., the better off you will be on RedGage.

Xomba – Ironically enough I no longer contribute to Xomba but again, this does not exclude the fact that you can earn money from this site. You are paid directly through your AdSense account for all content you post on Xomba. Take some time to get acquainted with the site and find out which content gets the most attention. Since my focus was entirely business oriented, I did not fare too well which is what prompted my decision to leave.  Xomba does offer a flexible platform for promotion.

SheToldMe – Purely a social bookmarking site, they share AdSense revenue with those who share bookmarks. Registration does require that you explain why you feel you can add to the community. It takes about 24 hours to be approved then you can post links at your own discretion. Revenue is paid directly to your AdSense account.


These social sites allow you to earn directly. Do not expect any of them to increase your earnings by meaningful amounts, but if you use them all, the pennies will soon add up to dollars.  It is at least worth a try for those who have online content.
