An update on how this is going to work now that I’m getting this up and running properly (sorry it’s taken so long).
I have a plugin on my WordPress called Posts Pay Counter, which syncs to my Google Analytics and my AdSense and works out how much your post is making from the website. This would then be split between us 50/50 (but this can go up to 70 for you and 30 for me if you’re a successful writer) and you will be paid out as soon as your AdSense reaches over £30! (I have to get to £60 in order to get a payout, so if you hit £30, then we’ll get paid out)
What You Have to Do
Create an account on wordpress.com and follow the ShanniiWrites website (shanniiwrites.com).
DM me once you’ve followed us with an idea you have.
Also, give me the details of your Twitter, Instagram and any other account you’d like me to link.
I’ll make you an author and set up your payment account!
How it Works
You can write your articles on your account. I will then approve them to make sure there is no swearing or mature themes. Plus, I’ll make sure that they are good quality and fit the theme of the website! I will also need to make sure that you have made your post Yoast SEO-optimised (so that you get as much passive traffic as possible from people searching things on Google) and that the topic has not been covered before.
Please make sure your blog posts are helpful and give advice to my users!
I will then press “post” and you will start to get reads (hopefully) as soon as possible. The more you write and advertise yourself, the more you can make!
My blog is for writing, reading and English advice! You can write about many things, as long as you link it back to creative writing, reading or English (Language, Literature or English as a Foreign Language). You are welcome to include links to your own stories or blogs/websites as long as it’s relevant to what you’re discussing! I will not accept blog posts that are only there to advertise a rival blog, website or forum.
What You Get Out of It
As well as (hopefully) money if we get enough traffic, it will help you to learn how to produce SEO-optimised content. This will help you if you ever want to make your own blog or website, no matter the topic.
You will also have access to my audience. When I don’t post anything at all, I get around 50 page views a day! That’s from people searching Google as well as going through other channels. This means that you could get some traffic to your social media and stories!
I already have Yoast SEO to take care of SEO optimisation and give you suggestions. However, I recommend installing the free Grammarly browser extension (or getting the paid one if you’re extra keen) to make sure that your grammar is on point! Also, make sure to check out Capitalize My Title for, well, your titles and headers.
If I ever get time with the other 500 things I need to do, I will hopefully also be posting guides on how to use Yoast properly and how to create great blog posts, etc, which will help you along the way.
