So I was in the hunt for a writer for one of my blogs and I must say that I was very much impressed. I did come across some that didn't impress me, but I did fine a couple that absolutely blew me away.
All this little test showed me, was that there were too many people out there that are letting their amazing talent go to waste
There are just too many writers out there that make way less than what they should really be making so I thought I'd assist those in the writing department.
Making Money Writing is Not Like it Used to be
Unlike the old days, you could only make money as a writer in a couple of ways and the online world was not one of them.
Newspapers and Magazines had no problem looking for freelance writers because everyone wanted to do them. Now, they would probably have to pay more and not everyone is qualified to do the job, in their eyes.
These days, there are better ways to put your writing to work for you and I just now realized that most great writers are putting their skills to waste.
I want to show you the absolute best way to make money for your writing efforts, even if you think that the only way to make big money is through writing a book
For most, blogging is completely misunderstood. To the ones that know a thing or two about it, it is an amazing opportunity to make some good money writing.
Do You Really Know what a Blog is?
Blogging is something that most people don't really know what is, and most think it's nothing but a way to express yourself to people on the internet, via a “weblog“.
Just like most, I don't like people knowing my business and although I do make a good amount of money blogging, I don't tell anything about my personal life.
Well, for the most part, I don't go telling everyone what I do on a daily basis like you see in these travel blogs and those like it.
Blogging For Money
In the world of online marketing, it is a lot different. I want to give you the best understanding of how money is made through writing and ultimately through your own blog.
If you can grasp the concept of how money is made writing through a blog, you can create a very successful one with out even being a great writer.
I am not the best and I actually don't love writing. The thing is that I just talk about things that already interest me and I share it with others, just like I'm doing here.
Getting Started – Building a Website
If I told you to build a website right now, you'll probably look at me like I'm crazy. These days, creating a website is not as hard as you think.
Just like how I don't care too much for writing, I am also not computer savvy and I am definitely not one to deal with computer codes.
Thanks to sites like Site Rubix and Weebly, we are able to create a website in under a minute. I wasn't apart of the dinosaur age, so I can't relate much when it comes to dealing with computer coding.
I just heard from some of those that had to deal with computer coding to create a website, so trust me, I don't know how to do code.
This is the part where your awesome writing ability comes into play. Imagine making your own money for writing your own stories. How cool would that be?
Being a writer in the online world is one of the few “jobs” that allows you to say that you are the boss. Most may claim to do that, but it doesn't work that way.
It's a really simple concept and money is literally made in these simple steps.
- Create a website
- Add content
- Get paid
When you create the content for your site, you will be doing so in a way that allows you to get rid of the whole direct selling side of things.
Someone looks for a problem (Google) and you be there to present them with the best solutions to their problem. Simple right?
It all Starts With a Passion
I had to save this for last because it is the foundation of all the money making writing part of everything.
If you don't like what you're writing about, it's not going to be easy to write about things. You choose something that you are interested in, makes everything else easier.
I have websites based on parenting, RC cars, and backpacks, so you can see how I chose different things that I found interesting.
