Are you a Helium writer? Are you contemplating writing for Helium? Helium has been a great money making writing site for many, and a new look is going to help that even further.
For 4 years, I’ve been making steady growing solid income from Helium. I’ve been very impressed by what they have to offer me as a writer. It’s not as laid back as with other writing sites, such as Triond and Experts Column, but I think that’s why I’ve continually made a good income with them. They hold higher standards for writing, which I think is a great addition to my writing portfolio. The other publishers have allowed me to have a mix of fun in my writing and also add a bit of myself into it, while with Helium, I keep my writing as if I’m an educator. It’s what they want, and it has benefited me, as it has improved my writing. Better writing means better chances of return visitors, or getting liked on Facebook or added to Twitter. People want knowledge, and Helium is giving that. So while you may still see some creative writing and some looser fun topics, those “how to” articles at Helium are pulling in a lot of money.
Helium also offers a set ecpm which I like. As a writer, I like anticipating what I’ll be making that day, month, or year. It helps to set view goals and know how many I’ll need to hit my target money goal for the year. I even enjoy looking ahead to predict what I’ll make in 5 years. With a generous cpm of $.02 per 1,000 views, and drawing readers who know Helium delivers knowledge, it’s a great opportunity to cash in.
As the internet continues to change, along with blog designs, new technology, the addition of new fresh publishers, etc., Helium needs to change as well. They are going for it! They’re unveiling a new color scheme to their pages. This is exciting. Years of red and white have been good to us, but it’s time Helium has a facelift. They’re going with an orange and light blue header, and the page layout looks much more sharper to the eye. It’s an incredible look in my opinion. The reason I say this, is our goal as writers at Helium is to be an authority figure, and the page should look the style of authority. So, you ask what does authority look like? Well, you’ll just need to wait and see. But, the new layout is extremely professional, and it’s sure to give us a further edge in getting views. More views means we make more money!
