The Wealthy Writer is my
brand new downloadable guide for writers, published by WCCL.
I wrote it in association with successful online author and publisher Ruth Barringham. The
Wealthy Writer is all about how to make money - a LOT of money! - writing for
It's easy to forget how new the net is. The World Wide Web, the most popular part of the net, started in 1989 with 50 people sharing web pages. Today, at least 500 million people use the web every week, and there are over
180 million websites, a figure increasing by 5% every month.
In its early days the Internet offered little in the way of paying opportunities for writers.
all that has changed. More and more companies are waking up to the fact that having a snazzy-looking web page isn't enough on its own. To keep visitors on their
website and put them in buying mood, they need well-written, interesting copy. And who's going to provide that for them? Not the techies in their IT department, that's for sure. What they need are writers!
But that's only a small part of the story. There is also a growing range of websites that advertise paying opportunities for writers, or invite them to bid for work. Still other sites invite contributions from writers directly.
Even better, with only a little bit of technical knowledge, you can create your own reports and
e-books based around your special interests and sell them to the ever-growing, world-wide online market.
This is one of the best ways to make serious sums of money writing for the Internet.
The net is also a wonderful tool for writers. Of course, it's invaluable for research and communication, but it also offers many
methods for writers to publicize themselves, find a publisher or agent, communicate with their readers, search for and obtain writing jobs and commissions, collaborate online with other writers, and much, much more.
And conventional publishers are seeing the potential of the Internet too. Publishers are now trawling the web for writing talent, and
almost every day another book based on a website or blog
is launched to a fanfare of publicity.
There's no doubt about it. If you're a writer or aspiring writer today, the Internet can turbo-charge your writing career - without you even having to leave the comfort of your chair.
It opens a whole new world of writing opportunities, and makes it easier than ever before to earn a great income online. But where do you start? The sheer volume and range of websites can seem bewildering even to the most experienced writer...
That is where
The Wealthy Writer comes in. It will guide you easily and painlessly through all the different money-making opportunities for writers on the
Between us - modesty aside - Ruth and I have direct experience of
all the main ways of making money writing for the net. Indeed, we now earn most of our income from this source. Methods we have employed successfully include:
writing website copy
short report writing
selling our writing services via job auction sites
setting up a writer's website
advertising online for writing work
and many more!
In The Wealthy Writer we guide you through all these methods, revealing the approaches that have worked for us, and our own hard-won 'insider tips' on maximizing
your income from writing for the Internet.
The Wealthy Writer assumes no special knowledge. It is ideal for writers
who are new to the Internet, as well as those who have taken their first few
steps and are now looking to step up a grade. To give you a flavor of the
content, here's a short extract from the (long) section
|Paid Blogging Opportunities
Blogging nowadays is big business. Many blogs rank high in the
search engines and attract substantial readerships. Companies have not
been slow to see the advantages of advertising on blogs and/or getting
bloggers to write about them. Many also now run blogs themselves, as a
way of communicating with clients, potential clients, employees, and
All this has generated a growing range of earning opportunities for
bloggers. These fall into two main categories:
1. Opportunities to earn money by posting regularly on company
2. Opportunities to earn money by hosting advertising and/or blogging
about companies on your own blog.
Let's look at each of these in turn.
One website that regularly advertises paid blogging opportunities
is the Problogger jobs board at http://jobs.problogger.net/.
Here are just a few opportunities that were being advertised there at
the time of writing
We are about to launch a new web site, www.successforlifeclub.com,
and want to engage a blogger to produce a weekly blog. The topics
covered include the following topics:
a. Personal Development
c. Stock Market
g. Success Stories
Our partner site, www.secretsexposedclub.com,
is already in operation and examples of the general nature of the new
site may be seen on this site. We would be looking for approximately
500 words per week, applicable to the topics above. Links to other
video/audio material would also be encouraged. Payment approach is by
TV and Online Video Tech Blogger
We are looking to hire writers for a blog that covers general
television, satellite TV, and online video topics. You must be able to
write between 3 and 5 posts a week. You can work on your own schedule
and remotely. You must have a good personality and strong writing
skills. Compensation depends on how much you write and the length of
the articles, but it is competitive.
Niche Industry Blogger
We are looking for a witty, sharp and entertaining blogger to
represent our company and write for an industry blog targeted at the
marketing/advertising/media/promotions industry. It is a niche blog
highlighting stories related to user generated content and how it is
being used effectively in marketing campaigns. You will discuss
various types of topics ranging from legal issues related to UGC and
marketing to the hottest online UGC campaign to the best technology
platform for a UGC campaign. You will be required to find content and
will be required to post a minimum of 5 stories per day, daily.
Obviously, by the time you read this, these opportunities will have
been taken, but you should be able to find plenty more at http://jobs.problogger.net/.
Another website that often advertises paid blogging opportunities is
the Absolute Write writers forum at www.absolutewrite.com/forums.
Look on the Paying Jobs board.
It's only fair to say that you are unlikely to make a fortune as a
paid blogger. Once you have been accepted, however, it can be a source
of steady work for as long as you want it. Another attraction is that
you will be researching and writing about a subject that you
presumably find interesting. For reasons of supply and demand, rates
of pay tend to be higher in niches requiring specialist knowledge.
