Writing For Money
Writing for money is both enjoyable and profitable.
Writing for money comes in many forms. If you enjoy writing you’ll find it even easier to earn good money with your writing skills. Writing for money is an excellent way to pay bills or to save towards a luxury item. Many people, however, like writing for money full-time and have the opportunity to set their own hours, pick and choose writing projects as well as enjoy the lifestyle that goes with it. If you’re happy to follow deadlines, work alone and sometimes work long hours then this is the right career for you.
In this article you’re going to learn how much you can earn writing for money, what sort of material you can write and how to find paying work on the internet. Let’s get started.
How Much Can You Earn Writing For Money?
So what can you earn when you’re writing for money? When you’ve been working in the industry for a while and you’ve made a name for yourself you could see yourself earning six figures within a relatively short period of time. But to be honest with you, if you’re a total beginner you won’t likely be earning that much within your first year, maybe more. You will however be able to earn between $150-250 per day within a few months if you really apply yourself. In fact, if you choose to go down the route of ghost writing eBooks, you could earn around $1000 for something that’ll only take you a few days to write.
What can you write for money?
Well, with the internet rapidly growing, there’s a never ending supply of online clients desperate for content for their websites. Probably the first couple of things you’ll be doing when you start is article and blog post writing. It’s easy to do and they’re quick to write. Once you’ve got some experience and credibility doing this you might want to move on to eBooks, short reports or maybe even full-length physical books if that’s what you want.
Now, in order to write for money you need some customers. The best way to find clients is to put an advert on the internet where target eyeballs are likely to see it. Craigslist is a good source. Internet marketing forums work well too and most of them have a ‘for hire’ section where you can advertise your services. You’re bound to get some interest with the latter method. Failing that (not that you will) you can always go to Google and type “article writers wanted” to see who’s looking for writers. All you need is your first client to start writing for money.
