In the following article, I'll share my honest infobarrel review with you and I'll discuss whether or not I believe you should join and/or stay on board if you are already a member. The topics I'll address include the financial gain I've earned through this site, the connections I have made with other writers on here, and the overall landscape of writing for pay here and elsewhere.
First things first: I'll admit right away that since I have signed up here nearly half a year ago, I haven't made very much money at all yet quite frankly. That doesn't mean there is no money to be made using this platform... I'm just sharing my own story here. I'm just an average person and I haven't quite mastered how to make money with infobarrel yet... so I'd say for the time and effort I've put into creating my articles and stuff, I've definitely not benefited accordingly... It's true it's a little discouraging. However, on the opposite side of the spectrum, there are some very successful writers here on InfoBarrel. One of them is jcmayer777 who has crossed the $2000 mark last month in earnings from adsense, not to mention another couple of hundred from chitika. That is undeniable proof that the problem in my situation is not Infobarrel, it's me. I'm just not doing it right, I guess. It's not easy either. Last month, I made 0$... not even one single red cent. This month though, I've made about 50 cents so far and as small as that amount is, its still pretty encouraging because it proves that there is still hope for me here on Infobarrel.
Second, I wanted to talk briefly about the great connections I have had the opportunity to make here on Infobarrel. The people here have a great reputation for helping each other out and really working together to make this site great. And, it's very true from my point of view. I've gotten lots and lots of help from members on here who I have never even met before. Many, not all, go out of their way to try to help you as best they can and believe me for a newbie like myself that kind of help and assistance is priceless and always much appreciated. I'm so grateful to all the people on here who reached out to me and have helped me on my journey. It means a lot to me. So, in terms of connections you can make on here, I'd give this site and A+.
Third, I wanted to make something clear about the make money online world in general that I have found. This applies to article writing platforms like we have here but is not limited to the article writing world. I'm talking about online marketing in general. I've realized that this business can be really really shady. Also, it's tough to keep your integrity in tact when immersing yourself in the make money online world becaues there are so many temptations that come your way. I'm talking about grey hat and black hat tactics here. For those of you that have never heard of grey hat or black hat, those are basically terms that represent the shadier sides of online marketing and article writing. I do not condone those kinds of behaviors and I think it's very important for aspiring writers and/or marketers to be very careful when it comes to the practices they involve themselves in. A lot of the gurus out there are teachy completely unethical and maybe even illegal methods to making money online. I'm completely against that. I think it's terrible. For instance, if you'd like to get into affiliate marketing, it's important that you take the time to think critically about the marketing methods your merchants are pushing on you. I say this because I have personally gotten in trouble for implementing tactics that were either taught directly from clickbank product merchants for example or from internet marketing forums like the warrior forum.
In other words, it's tough out there for a newbie because we are often pretty clueless about what is acceptable and what is bad when it comes to our marketing and writing methods. The key thing here is to not give up. Try different things and see what works and what doesn't work... Move forward with your plans and learn from your mistakes. Now, the question is, do I recommend writing for infobarrel and/or online marketing in general to people? Do I believe you should sign up or stay on board if you are already write here? Yes, I'd have to say that I do. That's just my opinion though. Why do I believe you should write for Infobarrel? I just think it's a great introduction to the right way of doing things in internet marketing. Through writing here, you'll learn important lessons like researching topics including keyword research, you'll learn on-page SEO and other SEO, and you'll learn all kinds of useful skills that will benefit you in many different ways down the road.
For instance, once you have built yourself a healthy income here on Infobarrel, you could move on to a bigger and better project like creating a niche blog or a niche site. That's just my 2 cents though.
In conclusion, I believe that there is potential when it comes to the amount of money you can make writing on this site. I haven't quite figured it out but if you'd like just study the more succecssful writers on here and learn from them. Don't be afraid to contact them directly and ask them for help or advice... you would be surprised at how friendly people are here. That leads us to my second point. I was very impressed with the kindness and generosity other infobarrel members showed me when I first got started. It's really an incredible community and you would do a great disservice to yourself if you didn't join. And, finally, my last point was that you need to proceed with caution when it comes to learning about article writing and online marketing in general.
I hope you enjoyed reading this article.
