SEO writing is more than ordinary writings.

What’s SEO writing?

SEO writing, according to onlinewritingjobs.com, is a form of writing that helps websites become more visible to major search engines like Google and Bing.

From the name, “Search Engine Optimization” is making a website appear on top of the list of search engine results with the immediate aim of getting more online visitors to a particular website, using content as the bait.

Are the options above too serious? Here’s another way to make money online as a writer.

YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world with multitudes of Internet users stuck to it like a swarm of bees. From this, did you know writing could fetch you crazy earnings?

I’m calling you to scriptwriting.

If you can do it the right way, writers who provide seductive scripts (with an endless appeal) for viral YouTubers get a heap of money. As a subscriber, you’re part of their donators. Lol.

YouTube pays – YouTubers who link Google AdSense to their channels – 68% of ad revenues for every time a video is watched for longer than 30 seconds. In another account, a video creator earns $2,000 for every million views.

Script Writing for YouTube business

On the whole, YouTube presents a plethora of opportunities for action takers, not pleasure seekers. Knowing that the video-sharing website processes more than 3 billion searches in a month, the former give the latter what to learn or laugh about – and make tons of money from it.

Alternatively, you could have someone else as the character while you’re the content creator. This is if you think your voice/face is not nice enough. But in all honesty, what really matters is the value. Not your face nor voice.

Wrap up:

James Chartrand talks about why some people make money writing and others never will; according to her, there are two types of writers in this world: the people whose writing has a positive net effect on their lives and their businesses, and the hobbyists.

If you choose to go for the former, a writing that pays off, you won’t hesitate to grab the bull by the horn. Will you?

    I found this very interesting. I do some freelance writing for $$$’s, and am working on a project that might be more lucrative. Many thanks.

    • Thanks, Di Hill. I got your comment on Facebook as well. Do you mind having more hands around to work on the project? I would like to know.

      Many thanks!

  • Tariq Agbabiaka

    Nice article, as always.

    Though something still bothers me.

    Why has writing shifted from a hobby and free venture deal to an increasing monetized domain? It should be more than just exploration for more money.

    • In the simplest of terms, globalization accounts for why a lot of things have changed about our world. Pretty much, It’s not only writing.

      I think writing is still very much cool to be a hobby. But how do I play smart between my hobby and the impact I’m supposed to make in my age?

      I will simply – and perhaps wisely – tailor my hobby in accordance with the order of the day. In the digital economy, there’s more to writing than hobby. Writing, as a rare talent, should never waste. Not anymore.

      Make impact. And make money. It’s sweeter that way 🙂

      Oh! Thanks for the compliment.

    I agree with Tariq on writing being what wasnt used to be but come to think of it, no matter how we sugar quote it, Shakespeare and others wrote so that their names would be worthy of honourable mention among generations to come. its true they write because they have to write, but their actions too is a form of Monetization (its even more than money) that has changed to what it is today. Thanks @Akorede for the insightful article. At least we know how to tread the path in making our talents our profession.

    • Valid points, there. Whichever, the rewards deserved by one’s talent must be pursued wisely and strategically.
