Independent local online news publishers flock to sponsored content
by: Michele McLellan

My new survey of independent online local news publishers indicates they are making progress in increasing their revenue and diversifying the sources of revenue, including a big jump in sales of sponsored content.

Most increased their revenue in 2015 while some experimented with new sources of revenue in addition to traditional display ads, including native advertising, video advertising, events and business services. About two-thirds said they were planning to develop a new revenue stream in the coming year.

Perhaps the biggest headline is the growth of sponsored content as a revenue source. About half the publishers in the 2016 survey said they are selling sponsored content or native advertising compared to 20 percent a year earlier.

The March-April survey of 93 publishers representing 103 publications was conducted on Michele’s List, a database of independent sites that is produced in collaboration with the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism. A full summary of the results and the dataset is available on the Tow-Knight website.

Fifty-seven percent said their 2015 revenue was $100,000 or less, compared to 66 percent who said that a year earlier. Seventy-eight percent reported their revenue increased compared to 70 percent the year before.

Nearly half said they turned a profit in 2015 while another 24 percent said they had developed a steady flow of revenue but were not yet profitable. These are about the same percentages as in the last survey.

The publishers continue to rely heavily on advertising – in most cases display advertising – for their revenue. Twenty percent said advertising was their only source of revenue, compared to a third who said that a year earlier.

In the survey, publishers reflected on their challenges on the revenue side.

Lean or one-person startups often find it difficult to make time for sales or to hire and adequately compensate a sales person.

"We've really struggled to secure sponsorships for online content. This is likely thanks to the fact that we've not hired anyone with a specific focus on this effort," said Michael Kanin of the Austin Monitor, a nonprofit site that launched in 2013 that operates mainly on large donations and subscriptions.

"Insufficient time to devote to ad sales personally, but not enough revenue stream to be able to compensate an ad sales rep adequately," said Bill Smith, who launched Evanston Now in 2006 in a suburban city north of Chicago. The site derives a lion's share of its revenue from local advertising.

Many of the sites are too small and local to appeal to large brands, meaning their potential advertisers are often small, cash-strapped local businesses.

In this environment, it is difficult for many publishers to look beyond display advertising, which itself remains a challenging sell to many more traditional advertisers.

"The 'mom and pop' businesses are very "old school," not internet savvy and rarely have ever considered the idea of advertising, much less have an ad budget.  Also, this is not an area where 'big box,' national chains reign," said Traven Rice, who founded The Lo-Down in New York City's Lower East Side in 2009 with her husband Ed Litvak. The primary revenue source is local advertising.

With these challenges, it is easy to see why the smaller sites struggle to find capacity to diversify their revenue streams.

However, among the for-profit sites, the significant increase in the number offering sponsored content and a small but growing number are offering video advertising suggests the publishers are finally seeing the limits of traditional display advertising.

But questions remain whether they can adapt their revenue model as more and more news consumption shifts off their websites and onto mobile and social platforms such as Facebook’s Instant Articles.

 10 Tips On Writing And Publishing Articles on Naijasky and earn Advertising Revenue share

Find Success On Naijasky





After five years on Naijasky I have learned a lot about writing, publishing and making money on the internet and I have managed to bring my income just from Naijasky alone, up to a satisfactory level.
It's not enough money to make a full-time wage but I also earn money from other online sources so it certainly all adds up to make a nice little cash tip at the end of each month in addition to my earnings in the real world.So, how did I bring my income from Naijasky up to a satisfactory level and what tips I can offer after this five-year-long learning process?

Read on to find out!

Tip 1: Unique rich content

If there's one thing I've learned from Naijasky, it's that nobody is interested in reading your articles if they can access the same information elsewhere online.Every single hub needs to offer something unique which cannot be found elsewhere and for this reason heavily researching the content you are writing about is an absolute necessity (unless you already have unique knowledge to share).When researching, you may find that different websites, newspapers, books, magazines, etc offer various bits of information on the topic you are studying.However, I have always found that when I am researching a topic, I never manage to find a webpage, magazine or book which has adequately consolidated all the information available on that subject... and so this is what I aim to do with many of my hubs and this often results in them receiving high traffic.People would much prefer to visit just one website or page where all the information they need is available, rather than having to visit page after page looking for extra tidbits of information.Consolidating the information into just one hub also gives visitors a reason to bookmark your page so that they can come back to it in the future.Including relevant high quality pictures in your hubs is also another way of increasing the richness of your hubs. You are not restrained to just one or two pictures but can add several. Not only does this keep readers coming back when they haven't had time to read all the information but it also keeps visitors on the page for a lengthier period of time and also ensures that your hub contains rich content. However, pictures alone are not sufficient enough and must be accompanied by a high-quality, original, informative, unique and rich write-up.

Tip 2: Develop Your Own Writing Style

This is not just about developing your own unique style of writing but is also about improving your spelling, punctuation and grammar. Just one simple spelling mistake can seriously downgrade your article in search results (believe me, I know from experience!).Additionally, developing your own sense of character and personality through your writing adds to the uniqueness of your content. Maybe add a few personal thoughts or speculations about the subject topic into your article. However, you shouldn't overdo it.It's important to strike a balance between not being too formal and not being too personal in your writing. How would I describe my own writing style?Assertive but sometimes subjective.

Tip 3: SEO, Keywords & Promotion

Many people are put off by the technical aspect of using SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and keywords. However, you don't need to be a genius and Google actually seems to be focusing less and less on SEO and keywords and more and more on actual content.Your title needs to say everything about your article; it needs to grab the attention of potential readers. If the title sucks them in and they want to know more, or they have specifically search for words in the title, the next thing they will look at is the summary or the first paragraph of the article.

For this reason it's important that the summary and first few paragraphs of your article really tell the reader all about the fantastic information you have on offer. Additionally, your title, summary and first few paragraphs should remain consistently focused on the relevant topic and should regularly include certain keywords (which people are likely to be searching for) that are closely related to the topic.However, this should not be too obvious or it can damage the consistency or your content and it shouldn't be done extensively or it could be classed as "keyword stuffing" which would result in Google penalizing your article.Promoting your content on other websites is also important.

 Build up a following on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and other social networking websites (only as many as you can handle). Not all of your readers may want to register with Naijasky to follow you and so this gives many of them the opportunity to follow you on a different website. You can then post links to your content on those websites.
Not only are you posting links to your content right in front of your followers on those social networking sites but you are also helping to generate inbound links. This may generate a temporary boost in traffic.

 However, these types of inbound links are considered low quality. What you really want is inbound links from high quality websites and web pages which are also relevant to your topic. The more high quality inbound links you can build, the higher search engines like Google will rank your content.



Tip 4: Social Networking


Social networking is not just about posting your links in front of people hoping that they'll click on them. It's about communication and networking. Following just anybody on Twitter hoping that they'll follow you back (even if it works) is not the best way of promoting your material. What you really need to do is communicate with people who have a genuine interest in your work.Don't just post links for them, communicate with them directly, learn about who they are and why they are interested in your material. Some of them may run websites, blogs or may be in a position where you can both be of benefit to each other - keep your eye open for such opportunities.

Additionally, it's always also good to show your followers your gratitude, it makes them know that their support is appreciated and that they are an important part of what you do.
Each of your writing page has three small social networking buttons on it: Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Sign up with all of them but don't just promote your own material, do some cross-promoting and help promote articles material that was written by others which you think is useful.

Tip 5: Keep Your Content Updated

Keeping your content up to date is important, although if you have hundreds (or thousands) of articles published then it can be a time consuming chore. However, it's well worth the effort. When you're not writing or are out of ideas for new writing, it's a good idea to go back through older articles, checking them for mistakes and consistency and it's also possible that you may have learned something new which you can add to those article, which you hadn't learned at the time they were originally published.If so, let your followers know that you have added more information.

 Updating older hubs usually results in those hubs receiving a little boost in traffic. Another reason why this is important is because as time goes on, the more you will refine your writing technique and skill which will (or should) improve. By updating older hubs you had published before developing and refining your writing skills you will giving them an upgrade.
Additionally, more and more information is constantly being released on a wide range of topics, some of which you may write about (technology or space discoveries, for example). Search engines like up-to-date, unique and rich high quality content, so when you learn something new add it to your hub(s).

Tip 6: Watch Out For SPAM


Not only is SPAM bad for you (pun not intended), it's also bad for your readers. For this reason it's a good idea to moderate your comments and don't approve them until you have checked them. This also helps prevent derogatory comments from being published on your hubs without you knowing until you see them.Sometimes people can be crafty and may leave a long significant comment and then slip an email address in their last sentence hoping you might not notice it. Additionally, some people may skew the wording of their comment, so that it affects the quality of your writing and downgrades it.

Tip 7: Never Publish Early

This is an important one which many creative people, whether they be writers, musicians, web designers or graphic artists, often mistakenly overlook. Many people are eager to get their work 'out there' usually for several reasons. They may want to find out what people's reaction to their work will be, or they may want to get the piece finished so they can get working on another one they have in mind, or have started working on, or they may even want to get their information out before it becomes outdated. However, this is one fundamental mistake that can result in people not bothering to take any notice of your newer material, even though you may have improved your writing.Make sure you include, in your hub, everything you can possibly think of which is relevant to the topic.

 Do not publish your hub until you are absolutely certain that you have included everything you possibly can. However, it's also important to ensure your hubs are not too lengthy either. Some readers tend to look at the first paragraph or two to see how interesting it is, then scroll down to find out how long the page is (ie how long it's going to take them to read it).
Additionally, publishing early then adding more information or making changes later may attract new traffic, but may also be overlooked by your regular readers. If you have made significant changes, let your followers know.

Tip 8: Monetize & Optimize

Don't just use Google Adsense -, you'll be surprised how different the results are. Also make sure to use other affiliate links and local adverts too,. Personally I recommend using the Amazon affiliate scheme as I have had the most success with this one. However, it's also important to have the capsules well placed on the page, where they are not intrusive but the reader can see them clearly. Also make certain to advertise products relevant to your content.

Tip 9: Branch Out

Don't place all your eggs in one basket, as they say. Although you may have found some success by using a website, this doesn't necessarily mean that this will always be the case - this is the internet and anything can happen. Consider trying out other websites, not just to see if you have any success, but to help build your online presence. Your material which is published on other websites could act as a supplement.If you have published many articles/hubs and have managed to build a good following, consider writing a book or, at least, an eBook. Self-publishing websites such as Lulu make this extremely easy for any writer to do. You can get an ISBN (International Standard Book Number) for your book and can sell hard copies to your readers on demand through a wide range of well-known distribution networks.Also consider starting your own website or blog where you can be more personal whilst building your brand (if you are a writer, your name is your brand). Your blog or website can then be used to help compliment your already published material.

Tip 10: Collaborate


This is one which I don't see happening anywhere near as often as should be. Not only can it help for writers to cross-promote their material, but teaming up with another writer, or other writers, and publishing material together can certainly help raise your profile. There are many advantages to this:
  • Two heads are better than one, three heads are better than two, etc.
  • You have a combined audience to market your material to.
  • You help to cross-promote each other's material.
  • Both (or all) of you end up with more readers.
This tip actually has plenty of room for flexibility and expansion. For example, a small team of writers could link up and collaborate to form their own website, blog, book, collective of writers and/or even their own publishing company.

How To Make Money As A Freelance Journalist           

The journalism industry is dramatically transforming both in the newsroom and in the boardroom. Over the years, the way journalists report the news has changed and the newspaper business has finally started to adapt to the changing times, whether it’s pay walls, cutting back on its workforce or offering real-time updates to important news stories.

It has become a common trend in recent years for print and online news outlets to use freelance journalists and photographers to cover the news because of budget restraints, or not having enough staffers to report on a small media event or press conference. This is certainly where freelancers who want to make a name for themselves as journalists can step in.

Due to advancements in technology, freelance journalists have a wide variety of avenues to choose from to earn a decent living as a journalist, and it doesn’t always have to require wearing down the “shoeleather.”

        Here are some ways as to how a freelance journalist can make money today:

Specialty

Before you start to initiate your journalistic endeavors, think about what areas you want to cover. Besides covering political and entertainment matters (two of the most popular topics), there are a wide variety of subjects that still need to be reported on: economics, finance, science, business, art and so on. Establish a specialty and then become the next Woodward or Bernstein.

Throwing a Pitch

Have a great idea for a news story? Do you have a scoop from a reliable source? Well, you can always pitch your local newspaper, or an online national journal with a news story that their staff hasn’t thought of or were unaware. This is an old-fashioned way for prospective journalists to get their foot in the door with a media venue.
Be sure to have the five Ws ahead of your pitch (who, what, where, when and why) and remain as confident as possible.

Websites

Establish your own brand by signing up for different websites (Digital Journal, Examiner, Guardian Liberty Voice and others) or by launching your own professional news website. Create a press badge, grab your digital voice recorder, get a good camera and attend some media events, scrums, or demonstrations, interview noteworthy individuals and start writing.

Although these websites mostly offer advertising revenue, a story might go viral and you can begin to earn passive income at the beginning. As long as you produce quality work then it’ll only be a matter of time until you’ll be known as a professional journalist and begin to get job offers or can work for more respected publications.

YouTube

Do you have a HD camera? This might be your ticket to earning decent cash by attending press conferences, protests and other newsworthy events and filming them. More people are turning to YouTube to watch the news and if you grab good footage that no other journal was able to capture then it could be cited by major media outlets, which would then lead to incredible viewership.


Photos


Similar to YouTube, if you snap some good shots of politicians, celebrities, demonstrations or other kinds of events then there is a good chance other publishers will notice and you can sell these images for the market price (varies by nation and industry). Post some examples on your portfolio page and potential businesses, political campaigns and websites will take notice.   
clip HOW MUCH CAN YOU EARN AS A FREELANCE WRITER?
May 07, 2018, 12:07:09 PM by Isaac Adeniran



 
WHEN DID YOU FIRST START WORKING AS A FREELANCE WRITER?
I did a little freelance writing on and off in college but I've been doing it seriously and consistently since March 2015. I started freelancing to earn more money so I could pay off my debt. At the time I started, I desperately wanted to pay off my student loans and high-interest car loan, but I was only making $28,000/yr at my full time job. I majored in journalism in college and love to write so when I saw people earning money from freelance writing, I wanted to try it too.
 
      HOW DID YOU LAND YOUR FIRST CLIENT?
 I wanted to start writing about personal finance and to break into that niche, I got with a coach who taught me everything she knew. She had been freelancing for several years and supported her family of 4 with her income at the time so I knew I needed to learn from her. She helped me set up   my blog, pitch for gigs, work on my resume, etc. My first client actually reached out to me and was in need of a weekly staff writer. I was pretty excited.
  HOW ELSE DO YOU FIND NEW CLIENTS?
 Mostly via referrals and cold pitching. I use Facebook groups and my network to land new clients sometimes, but most of the time, I just research potential clients in my niche and connect with them on social media then send a somewhat cold pitch.
 
AT WHAT POINT DID YOU REALIZE YOU COULD TURN FREELANCING INTO A FULL-TIME CAREER?
 I realized it right at the beginning. When I first spoke with my coach, she asked me how much I wanted to earn monthly from freelancing. I nervously told her $1,000 per month, but I wanted/knew/hoped I would earn more some day. Seeing other people earn a full-time income from freelance writing inspired me and made me feel like I could do the same one day.

 WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT TOOLS YOU'VE USED IN YOUR BUSINESS?
 My website has been the biggest tool. Without it, I don't think I'd have such a solid online presence and wouldn't have been able to land so many good clients. I have a few clients who have flat out told me that they don't consider hiring freelance writers who don't have a website/blog.

 I also credit my coach as being a great resource for me when I got started.

 I also like to use Grammarly to edit my work and make sure it's error free. Being a writer can seem challenging at first because you feel pressured to always spell everything right but people make mistakes all the time. Grammarly has been a great tool to help me edit my work and make sure I'm delivering the best content to my clients.         
 HOW MUCH CAN YOU EARN AS A FREELANCE WRITER?It's crazy how you can earn 6-figures a year from freelance writing. I know a few people who earn that much. It really just depends on your clients' budget and how much quality work you can get done. I imagine that your earning potential would not be limitless since your available time and energy are two big constaints, but you can definitely earn a lot of money quickly.
 
 I love how it's pretty easy to earn more. Traditionally in the journalism/content creation world, you have to start off with a low-paying position and work you way up over the years. With freelance writing, I love how you can just pitch higher paying clients or ask for raises when you want to earn more.
 
 After just a year of freelance writing on the side of my full-time job, I was earning around $2,800+ per month.
 
 
 During the first quarter of this year (Jan-March), I earned more than $14,000 from freelancing alone, which means I earned more than $4,600 per month on average.
 
 
WHAT IS THE MOST REWARDING PART OF THIS CAREER?
The most rewarding thing about what I do is having the flexibility I need to be there for myself and my family. I get to pick my son up from school each day and spend more quality time with him. I also get to enjoy my home more and don't have to worry about asking someone to take time off.
 
 Back when I worked a 9-5 job, I would put off doctor's appointments because I didn't want to deal with asking my boss for time off.
 
 It also feels really rewarding to see my content and know that it's helping people. It's pretty cool to see an article pop up in a Google search or on social media that I wrote.

 How to Make Money As A Beginner Freelance Writer


To make money as a beginner freelance writer is one hell of a job. Freelance writers can work full or part-time, and earn a good income to help cover the bills. If you possess the skills and the motivation, you can define your own career.

While Google and other search engines keep hitting hard on bad content through their updates, bloggers, website owners, magazine and e-zine publishers, and other internet marketers are becoming more conscious of the significance of quality content. Quality content is what drives traffic and brings profit, the demand for freelance writers has been on the increase for some time now and it won’t end anytime soon.

How to Make a Money As a Beginner Freelance Writer

Gather your resources

If you want to work and make money as a beginner freelance writer, you need your own PC, a dependable internet connection, and time to spare. You will write articles and other pieces as required by clients with your PC. With a good internet connection, you will be able to converse with your clients, submit articles, and carry out research before or during your writing tasks.
You need at least 3-4 hours of your day for your writing assignments. You may not spend up to that as a beginner, but the time you spend will increase as you attract more clients and get more writing jobs. If you don’t have any of these resources, you won’t find it easy to start your freelance writing career.
 
Write and publish some samples


Nearly all clients will ask to see samples of your work before hiring you as a beginner or a pro. If you don’t have any sample to show, getting clients will be difficult. So, write at least five sample articles on any subject of your preference.
To add credibility to your written articles, upload them to article directories or a simple blog. Sending unpublished samples will make most clients doubt if they were really written by you. But if you send them links to published samples that show your name as the author, your clients won’t doubt you.

Start hunting for clients and marketing your services

No client would want to hire your article writing services if they don’t know you have the skills to give them what they want. So, you will have to spend a lot of time on trying to get clients and promoting your article writing services on social media.
One of the methods you can use to attract clients is to register with freelance outsourcing sites like Fivver, Upwork, Elance, and Freelancer. These websites connect clients with freelancers with different skills, including article writing and content creating.
You can also get writing jobs by signing up with content mills such as TextBroker and iWriter. You will be able to select from a large collection of freelance writing assignments, complete and submit them, and get paid for your work.
Other methods to promote your freelance article writing services include telling your social media followers. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn are good examples of social media platforms where you can promote yourself as a freelance writer. You can also promote your services on forums and online communities like Warrior Forum, Nairaland, Naijasky etc. So, if you have been wondering how you can make money as a freelance writer, now is the time for you to act.

Focus on clients with recurring gigs

To make money as a freelance writer, you have to laser focus your attention on clients with recurring gigs that will offer you assignments months after months. These clients will become the bread and jam of your business.

You’ll know that you can expect monthly income because “client A” will always give you gigs to handle. You can even go to the extent of signing a binding contract with such client if the need be.
Note: Make sure you don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Try as much as you can to have a mix of several clients within your circle. Just in case “client A” goes out of business, you might still have something to fall back on.
