Maybe you have always wanted to be a writer or maybe you are just a stay at home mom, retiree or other unemployed person looking for a way to make a few extra bucks. Writing online could be just the thing for you. However, you need to know how to go about it the right way.
There are a lot of people out there willing to talk about making money writing online. They make it sound like a fine, luxurious lifestyle. However, not very many will tell you how to make money with it yourself. They treat it as some elite club and if you haven’t paid your dues, don’t even try to sneak in.
I have worked my entire adult life as a freelance writer and I know there is money to be made. I support a family of six on it and I’m not afraid to share with others how it can be done. Writing online is a great way to make a full or part time living online. You just need to know how and where to find the money.
Are you looking for a method of finding steady writing opportunities that never dry up? Here are some guaranteed ways to make money writing online:
· Apply for freelance outsourcer sites- Websites like Elance or Get a Freelancer allow you to set up an account and bid on projects that you like at the pricing you choose. It also gives buyers the chance to invite you to their projects based on your profile information.
· Start a free blog with ads- If you want to have more control over where your content goes, you can set up your own free blog sites and place advertising such as Google AdSense on it. If you write quality content that is popular and bring in a lot of traffic, the earning potential is high.
· Write for a paid media company-You can also write for a media company that assigns titles or pays for submissions. Some pay upfront per article or assignment and some pay page views. Others pay both.
· Set up a website and freelance your services- You can also start an independent site to sell your services as a writer. Most often you will get clients who want ghostwriting or Web copy. This means that you will write content for them with no byline and according to their guidelines. You should typically charge more for this and always ask permission to use them as a reference.
· Send queries to magazines, newspapers and other media outlets- You can also send direct queries to on and offline publications that suit your writing tastes. Sometimes the income is a little slower when taking this route but it pays more which makes a great idea for dispersing into the other types of writing jobs you take.
Now that you know where the opportunities are, the power is in your hands to do something about it. There will be an investment of time that is required if you want to earn money writing and you will also want to be sure you have the basic skills needed to take on these jobs but with the right tools and skills, you can make a living writing online.
