One of the easiest way to earn money online is to write articles, reviews, tips, advice, step-by-step instructions, etc. There are several sites where you can publish your content and share the revenue generated from it. And since the articles you write will be online forever, you can keep earning money from them for years after you have submitted them. This makes writing articles a great opportunity to earn a residual income.

Here are five of the best sites where you can get paid to write articles:

Associated Content has been online since 2005, and is now owned by Yahoo. There are two ways to earn money with your articles on Associated Content. If you submit exclusive and unique content you can ask for an upfront payment, and if your article is accepted you will earn anywhere from $3 to $20. For most articles, the upfront payment is about $4. In addition to the upfront payment, Associated Content will pay you based on the performance of your articles. The rate is $1.50-$2.00 per 1000 pageviews, depending on your total number of pageviews. If you have a lot of articles, this can add up nicely and is a great way to earn a passive income. Payments are sent via PayPal and to be eligible for payment you must be at least 18 years old and a citizen of the United States. Upfront payments are sent daily (Monday to Friday) and performance payments are sent monthly.

Helium is a another site where you can get paid to write. On Helium, the payment per article is based on three factors. The first is article quality – good articles that rank higher will be read more and earn more advertising money. The second factor is the topic of the article – some topics are more popular than others and will get more readers. The last factor is advertiser interest – advertisers are more willing to spend money on certain subjects. For example, finance articles will have higher ad rates than articles about online gaming. Another feature on Helium is the marketplace. In the marketplace publishers can ask writers to write an article with a specific title. If your article is selected by the publisher, you can earn up to $100 on just one article. Payments are sent twice per month, on the 15th and last day of the month. Payments are sent via PayPal and the minimum is $25.
