Making Money with Xomba

In the comments of my last Xomba post, Gayle asked me if I had any tips on writing for Xomba. Keeping in mind that I've only been focused on Xomba for a little over a week or so, these are some of the things I'm doing that might be helping with my Xomba earnings:

1. If at all possible, become a Featured Author as it increases your exposure on the site. I am a Featured Author for Business and Entrepreneurs and there is another opening in that category. (There are two Featured Authors in each category.) There are openings in several other categories as well. Pick something you have some experience with and use your eHow articles as part of your 'resume'.

Your only requirement to keep your status as a Featured Author is to write one Xombyte (minimum 150 word article) every two weeks and post it in your category. That is so easy to do! You are free to write in other categories as well.

2.  Vote for your Xombyte or Xomblurb once you have posted it. Content is featured on the site, based in part on the number of votes it gets. In some cases it doesn't seem to take very many votes to get your byte or blurb featured.

3. Post lots of content. As I mentioned in my last post, it takes almost no time to write a Xomblurb. I estimate two minutes or less. If you look at my list of Xomblurbs you can see that their posting times are all 2-4 minutes apart. That includes the time it takes to copy and paste my eHow link, type in a title, choose a category, type in five tag words, type my 50 word description, and submit the blurb. In a few cases I even uploaded a picture.

You won't believe how easy it is to post a Xomblurb until you try it yourself. Consider doing ten a day until your entire eHow library is linked to.

That's really all I've done so far to generate $4.35 in earnings and put up backlinks to 70+  of my eHow articles in about a week's time. If my Xomba experiment continues to go well I will probably work on some other things like including affiliate links and linking my Xomba articles together to see if I can bump the earnings even more.

Remember, Xomba also rewards you for referrals to the site with 10% of your referrals' earnings. The 10% comes out of Xomba's cut, not the writer's so you can feel good about generating residual income this way as well. The links in this blog post are my referral links. I hope you'll consider signing up for Xomba using one of m y referral links, but either way, please request me as a friend once you're there!

Hi, Julie,

I wanted to thank you for posting this. I just signed up at Xomba and used your referral number. Hope everything went through okay.

Posting the bookmarks appears easy -- I've done one so far, but I also had to sign up for Adsense, too.
