5 top tips for money making forum posts.
Forum posting is one of the best ways to earn money as a writer online. I am a freelance writer at iwriter and freelancer.com. But in between writing projects I make money through forum posting at postloop, and theforumwheel. The following tips will help you write great comments that will earn you decent income whenever the other avenues run dry.

- add examples,
- And personal stories to your replies.
This may call for a little research but at the end of the day it helps you earn more.
- Be polite

“That’s a great idea @Reddyash, the sites that I trust for freelance work include micro jobs sites like:
All these sites are reliable sources of income and are all free to join.”
- Be brief
Although very short posts are discouraged at all forums, it’s great to stay on point and not lose focus.
