InfoBarrel is a great writing platform that can help you to establish your online presence and credibility when you write for them. But not only that, InfoBarrel also allows you to earn a residual income while doing so. Here are some of the pros as well as a few cons to writing for InfoBarrel.
Earn Revenue. InfoBarrel is a great site to help you to earn an extra income on the side. But if you have a lot of articles, you could even make a full-time residual income. However, InfoBarrel does not pay you according to page views, but rather you get a percentage of the revenue that is generated through Google Adsense. Therefore the more you write, and the more traffic that you create, the more money you can make.
Resource Boxes. InfoBarrel allows you to create and save many resource boxes to accompany your articles. In these boxes you are allowed to add links to other sites where you are selling stuff and so on.
Establish Your Credibility. Writing articles for writing platforms is a great way for you to establish your credibility. This includes whether you are a freelancer, an affiliate marketer, or when you are selling your own products. Writing helps you to show off your knowledge in your field, and thus others will be more likely to trust your recommendations.
Profile Page. InfoBarrel allows you to create a profile page from where others can see all of your content, your achievements on the site and more. From this page you are also allowed to link out to other sites for more free traffic to them.
No Links in Article. One of the cons of InfoBarrel is that they will not allow you to add links into your article, unless they are links to other InfoBarrel articles. The only outgoing links that are allowed along with your articles are those that are in the resource box.
Original Content. I could hardly say that this is a con, but InfoBarrel requires that you only submit content that is original and not posted anywhere else online. It is a con in the sense that it is more work to rewrite your content so that it is unique, but it is a pro as well, as unique content will help you to rank higher in the search engines.
Despite the few cons, InfoBarrel is a great site to take advantage of, and make it a part of your internet marketing strategies.
