One of the simplest ways to make money via the internet is simply to publish unique content or articles by either blogging or by submitting to an article directory.
A lot of online article directories like enzinearticles are used by marketers and webmasters as a backlinking and promotional source for their own products and websites. This is great if you have the time to setup an online empire, but for making a bit of spare change, it is definitely not ideal.
I recently found an article site called InfoBarrel which actualy shares advertising revenue with you. Perfect for a part time writer.
InfoBarrel is redefining the way average users participate in online media sites. By contributing their knowledge in the form of media (articles, videos, picture galleries or sound clips) any user can generate an income stream via the Google Adsense program while simultaneously contributing to a community of knowledge hungry individuals.
Every time a piece of your content is published on Infobarrel, you have the opportunity to make money. As a publisher on Infobarrel you are entitled to 75% of all the Google Adsense ad impressions generated by your content. You need a Google Adsense account in order to make money which you can do here.
