How to Make $100 to $200, Be Lazy and Never Leave Home


how to make money onlineI make around $100 to $200 per hour. I work at home and I make my own hours.

Not bad, eh? A lot of freelance writers I know don’t think this is possible. They grab $3 articles from auction sites like oDesk and Upwork, then work their fingers to the bone to bang out enough of these little stinkers to keep their power on.

Now, I admit, I’m lazy. Belting out article after article, eight hours per day, seven days a week just seems like too much work. I like to work smarter, not harder, so I end up writing higher paying articles, clips and how-tos a couple hours a day.
Oh sure, you’re probably saying, as if higher paying articles are just ripe for the picking!
Look, I’m not talking about Cosmo rates, here. I’m talking about articles that pay in the $50 – $200 range. These are easy enough to get if you have some sort of writing talent, and often only take an hour to type up.
Let’s look at the math:
  • Three $20 articles per day x 30 days = $1,800 per month
  • Two $30 articles per day x 30 = $1,800 per month
  • Two $40 articles per day x 30 = $2,400 per month
  • Two $50 articles per day x 30  = $2,800 per month
  • Two $100 articles per day x 30 = $6,000 per month
  • Two $200 articles per day x 30 = $11,200 per month

Of course, in real life you wouldn’t have an jumble of articles that were all worth the same amount. The point is, you want to be working at that larger end of the scale, not for peanuts.

Okay, you’re probably still thinking, ya that’s great, but where do I find the work? My course The No-Fluff Master Classes for Freelance Writers will teach you how to make good money without working so hard your brain turns to mush.
