PayPal has made it much easier and faster for anyone to pay and get paid online.
Although there were online payment processing systems before PayPal, none of them were/are as popular and as effective as PayPal.
Perhaps the best part is that now almost anyone can make money and get paid fast online through this company.
Although there are many methods to do this, not many are as good as making money writing articles online for webmasters. Especially since in most cases you receive your PayPal payments instantly or within minutes or hours of delivering your work.
If you like getting paid for surveys, and are going to join only one site, I would recommend you choose Ipsos-iSay. Ipsos is the most fun and well-paying panel. Give it a try to see how you like it. It is free anyway!
If you want some fast cash in your PayPal account, here is how to do it.
Write and Get Paid
If the English language happens to be your native language (or even if it’s not but you can speak it as if it were your own mother tongue,) and you need some cash in your PayPal account quickly, your best option is to offer your English skills for cash.
Yes, I’m talking about writing for money.
Fresh, quality content is the most important asset for hundreds of thousands of websites and blogs.
But creating them takes time and skills. And not every webmaster or blogger has the time or skill to write their own content. That’s where you come in. You can offer your services as a freelance writer and get paid for doing so.
The market for fresh content is huge and is only getting bigger as more and more businesses realize they need an online presence.
The great thing about this moneymaking idea is that you are not expected to produce magic read in order to earn money. Often, strict guidelines are provided and you just need to make sure there is compliance on your part and the client will have no problem paying into your PayPal account.
Where to Start?
For me, I like to take my writing skills to websites where written contents could be easily traded, you can think of these as some sort of online marketplaces.
It works well for me because I can find work that interests me and works that I can write plenty about.
When you hang around long enough, people will notice your specialization and webmasters in those niches will actually look you up for work.
Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.
Digitalpoint.com and WarriorForum are two of my favorite marketplaces.
Each of these forums (and many other webmasters related forums) has a “services” section where writers and webmasters in need fo content find each other.
I like my articles to be around 400 to 700 words so that I can bundle them into pack of 5 or 10 and sell them as bundles (most clients on these forums prefer bundled content.)
How Much to Charge?
You can charge as much or as little as you want. It all depends on how much you value your time and skills.
Of course, when you first get started, it’d be hard to charge premium rates. But as you establish yourself in the community and clients see the quality of your work, it becomes much easier to charge premium rates.
Where Else Can I Find Clients?
The two forums I mentioned are not, of course, the only webmaster related forums.
There are many of them out there, but these two are the largest ones and so the chances of you being to make money as a writer are much higher.
Here are some of the top Webmaster Forums:
There are also other options. You could use freelancing sites to find clients to write for.
Working as a freelancer on these sites, of course, has its own advantages and disadvantages.
On these sites, prospective clients will spell out the exact specification that they want, from topic to length, text layout to format. As a freelance writer, you can bid on the work and if you win the bid, you get the work.
Since you don’t call the shots here on the kind of work you want, you probably have to do some research if the article is to be on topics you’re not familiar with. As a result, you probably find yourself to be less productive (and creative with your writing) than writing for people on forums like Digitalpoint.com.
Of course, you can demand more compensation per article, and as with most freelancing sites, there is also a system in place that guarantees you payment even before you start your work.
Here are some of the best freelancing sites for writers:
You probably are shocked for not seeing big freelancing sites like Freelancer.com.
The reason I didn’t include them is that although they are good freelancing sites for many other kinds of freelancing work, the pay rate on these sites for writers is just pathetic. You’ll not get near as much as you would on sites mentioned above.
The Bottom Line
Of course, there are other ways to get money in your PayPal fast as well, like selling stuff on eBay, selling your own hand made stuff, and even accepting PayPal donations, but I personally prefer content writing services.
Writing content is a great way to make some PayPal cash.
There is no need to invest a dime.
You can find clients fairly easy and quick.
And best of all, you get paid as soon as you deliver the work.
Put all of that together and you get one of the best ways of making PayPal money online fast and easy.
