I know to share your experience with everyone can be a bit terrifying! rather a (Nightmare) sometimes :p But, what if I tell you that you can earn a big chunk from not by recording some video or, talking in front of the audience; But, just by sharing your thoughts or experiences about the things, the apps, the websites which fascinate you, the new hacks which you love or it could be opposite to this. Where you love gardening, cooking, knitting, drawing, etc.
When I say big chunk I mean to say $100 to $200 just for sharing an article which is 1000 words long and that too just one of it. There are several platforms that I have on my list, Below which I listed for Indians and abroad. You can get paid for writing about anything. That's, right, if you stay abroad, and you love to write, or you are just an amateur; this platform is for you. Medium is one of the most updated, clean and to the core news blog.
What is Medium?
Medium is an online platform, where you can read as well as upload your articles, and earn money based on the time the readers spend on your article. For every article that you submit, Medium pays you on the time spent in reading your article. At the end of every month, Medium pays its contributors 50% of the profit and on top of that, you get a daily update regarding your earnings!
However, there are only 36 countries where Medium can share their revenue. That is because they use Stripe as the payment method and unfortunately Stripe pays to only 36 countries as of now. But they are daily making progress. If you want to know which are these 36 countries, click on the link Medium is a non-exclusive platform in simple language this means that you can add the same post which you have written for your website. But, don't just copy-paste the article. Try to build up a story and an interesting one. which people would be curious about reading so that they make it till the end.
Now coming back to Medium, Medium allows you to read only 5 posts a month. Once you have read the 5 posts, you will receive a notification saying that you have already viewed 5 articles for the month.
In case you are just a voracious reader and lusty towards growing your knowledge, you can join Medium at just $5 per month and this particular amount from your end is equally distributed amongst all the contributors and is been shared in your Paypal account.
