This page tells you about Helium, a elite writing site, which pays you for your work.

Helium

Helium is a website which has now been around for years, people have been writing and making money with them for a long time now. At one time Helium used to be one of the best places to earn money writing articles. I do not think that is the case any longer, but I still think it is a site which is worth checking out, if you are a online writer. Helium gives you thousands of different titles in which you can write about, so you are never short of writing ideas with them. They also have writing contest each week, which gives you the chance, to get your hands on some great cash prizes. Helium acts as co-op, providing a publishing platform, and the marketing investment to attract writers, readers and advertisers. The writers, create content, and rate and moderate the site, and for this receive a share of the sites, overall revenue.

Facts

The better written your articles are, then the more money you will get for them. The better your writing, the more valuable you will be to Helium, readers and advertisers a like. Some of the topics, will be more sought after than others, things like business and finance, are likely to get you more views than on something like board games. The more page views your articles get, then the more money you will make, and there is money to be made on Helium. You will be expected to write original content on Helium, and you are not allowed to republish your articles, anywhere else.

Payment

Payment is simple and easy with Helium, all you need is a Paypal account. When you reach $25, you can then have your money put into your Paypal account. They pay out twice a month, on the 15th and the last day of each month, so you will not have to wait long once you have earned your $25.

More about Helium

You can make money with Helium, but I would not say that it is easy, you will have to put in a lot of ground work, before it starts to pay off. So do not be put off if you are not instantly earning, keep on with the writing and the money will come. As well as writing, you can rate other writers articles, and you will be paid a extra bonus for this, how much you are paid, will depend on how many articles you rate. So on Helium you get paid for not only writing, but reading as well.

Summary

All in all, Helium is a trusted and reliable site, which has now been on the internet for years. This is a solid way, for online content writers to earn some money, and the more dedicated you are to your writing, then the more you will make. Helium is actually at the moment advertising for new writers, so if your into writing articles, why not get over there and earn some cash.

Though putting eggs in different baskets is a good idea, I am comfortable with Wikinut for now. I have heard of Helium though, thanks for the share - siva

I know this article was written a few months ago, so it's a little out of step with the current Helium, but I'll comment anyway.

I wrote for Helium, almost exclusively, for four years. During that time, yes, Helium was an okay place to earn some money. For several months it was THE place where I earned my money, thanks to their upfront payments.

Unfortunately, those days are dead and gone. Helium was recently separated into a few dozen topical sites, part of the 'Helium Network', and since that happened my Helium earnings have plummeted. I had several thousand articles on Helium which would earn me enough to pay a bill or two just last month; now I'm making a fraction of that amount, despite assurances that our earnings would remain stable, and perhaps even grow. I don't know if the numbers aren't there or if Helium's just gobbling up a ludicrous amount of the ad money and leaving nothing for its writers, but either way, there's no real cash to be made here.

In summary, if you're serious about making money writing online, Helium is NOT the place to go. Try somewhere else.

I have written for Helium since 2006, and have earnt well there. It is true the site has changed trying too hard to improve itself and it seems to have cut its own throat by doing so.

The site is very hard to navigate around now, they segregated all the types of writings into microsites nothing relates to anything else anymore.

These changes are only recently made though. I am sticking with them for now. If you are not active on their site they will not pay you anymore that is another change that benefits them and not us, so maybe SLTE is right in some things he said.

My own earnings have plummeted to a mere trickle of what they once were there too.
