Creating multiple revenue streams when writing online

Creating multiple revenue streams when writing online is a must. Some companies will allow you to repost articles that you've written elsewhere. It's important to know which companies will and which won't. You always review the rules for each site carefully and make sure you understand them before posting.

Once you've begun writing on several sites creating multiple revenue streams when writing online isn't difficult. It's usually easy to do a quick rewrite if you don't want to or can't post the same article. To demonstrate, let's look at an article that I've written.

My daughters are both away at college and sometimes crave home cooked food. To ease homesickness I've begun posting some recipes online. My kids can keep up with the recipes here much better than they can a recipe card. Since it will be online anyway it may as well make a dollar or two.

Here's how creating multiple revenue streams when writing online was accomplished with Grandma's Easy Broccoli Casserole recipe:

First, I posted the article about Grandma’s Easy Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole Recipe on the writing site called Factoidz. They want content to be unique to their site. Posting it here first makes sure that the content is unique.

The second step in creating multiple revenue streams when writing online with this recipe was to post it on my blog. While the recipe doesn't directly appear on You've Been Reviewed, a link to the Factoidz article does. Now there are two streams of revenue. The first is the original article. Second is the advertising on my blog.

What advertisements I have there may not be directly related to the recipe. However, posting it will help me keep traffic flowing to the blog. Insufficient traffic means lost revenue. Therefore, the article about Grandma’s Easy Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole Recipe  is still helping create multiple revenue streams. 

Here are two more ways that the recipe is paying off.
