Things You Will NeedA Calculator
Do you ever catch yourself wondering how much your eHow articles will make this monthÃ¢ÂÂor the next? I have become perhaps overly obsessed (at the very least, I am very interested) in estimating eHow monthly earnings. From my own articles and from the earnings of other eHow writers, I have discovered a helpful formula.
First you must know that this is only an estimation. I cannot magically predict your eHow monthly earnings; because everyone writes a different quality of articles, and some will inevitably do better than others. If you have a good body of articles this should provide a pretty healthy estimate. (At least 40 articles is really needed to give an accurate estimate, more articles will give you a better estimate.)
Count the number of articles you have at the beginning of the month, and determine if they are 1 month, 2 months, or 3+ months old. Articles generally increase in earnings for the first 2-3 months and then level off.
To estimate eHow monthly earnings, first take the number of articles you have that are 3+ months old. These articles can average anywhere from 50 cents to over a dollar. A good estimate for these articles is $1. It may be slightly less or a little more, but multiply your number of articles by $1.
Now take any articles that are 1-2 months old. These articles generally won't do as well because they haven't made their way into the search engines. A safe estimate is .50 cents. Take the number of eHow articles in this category and multiply by 50 cents.
Finally you are ready for the articles that are less than a month old. These are the most difficult articles to estimate eHow monthly earnings for, because most won't make much at all. They generally average about 15-20 cents for the first month. So let's take the low end estimate and calculate the number of articles with $.15 for each article.
Add all of these numbers together and you should have a good estimate for eHow monthly earnings! Be sure to note that some people will have more successful articles that will average over a dollar a month, but some people might struggle to write articles and end up with articles that only perform half as well.Array
