3 Ways You Can Profit From Giving Your Writing Away


I recently made an important discovery that I just couldn't wait to share. You can make money by giving your writing away. Yes, it really is true.

This isn't some "get rich overnight" scheme or some trick to get you to lay out a bunch of money for a "turn key business". You have to do the work yourself and it will take some time to set everything in place -- but anyone with an elementary grasp of the English language can make this work!

Giving your writing away to web sites, blogs, firms, and newsletters can really make you some serious cash on the internet and I'm not joking.

In fact, I make more money giving my writing away than I did selling my articles and columns. That's right. The truth is that I'm making more money writing part-time for free than I did in any of my full-time paid writing jobs and that includes advances and royalties from the publication of three novels.

There are three ways I profit from giving my writing away. They aren't secrets and you can use them profitably as well:

Traffic- for my web sites and blogs (I've seen traffic triple within a week from some articles)

Reputation- building for me and my online enterprises which helps attract clients, customers, and visitors

Profit- for my advertisers and for me through sales of my own products as well as affiliate income

It really is not a difficult or complicated business model and one any competent writer, or anyone with the ability to string a decent sentence together, could replicate or modify to suit their purpose. I am a writer not a business person, but I know this is working for me and that it could work for you, too.

And let me share one last terrific benefit of this writing business -- you can write whatever you want. You aren't dependent on some editor's whim or assignment. You don't need to worry about tightly focusing your work to fit within a publication's editorial guidelines. You are in total control -- you write to suit yourself in terms of topic, approach, and tone. And you'll make more money doing that then you ever did when you tried to write for someone else. I promise!

Now go out there and give your writing away!

Authors: Do You Have A Web Site To Promote Your Book?

I was browsing online the other day and discovered the news about a first time novelist who had recently published a book telling the story of an African tribe suffering the loss of land and identity. Her story is based on her true-life experiences and research. She’s even donating a portion of the book’s profits to a charity that helps the displaced people. Her whole story sounded intriguing. However, when I looked for her web site--I couldn’t find it.

What a shame, I thought.

While her book is featured on Amazon.com and other online bookseller sites, and there’s a couple of press releases announcing her book signings, there is no obvious web presence for this wonderful book and its author. My immediate thought was that she was leaving book awareness and sales on the table.

Maybe she feels she doesn’t need a web site because she has the charity and her publisher assisting with publicity, or because there is some expressed interest in movie rights. Even so, I feel that a simple web s…

5 Habits of Frequently Published Wrters

Are you ready to sign off on your first project or publish more of what you have already written? Have you been wondering who will publish your work? The publishing industry is changing in the new millennium and doesn’t appear ready to stop changing. It is estimated that in the next 10 years, 50 percent of all books will be self-published or published by smaller presses.

With that said the way to more published writing credits is basically the same as Anne Wayman says, "Write well and write often." If you want to get published more by industry respected magazines and even enter into the competition for the attention of traditional book publishers, you may want to examine some of your writing habits. There are some habits those writers who consistently get published share. If you want to join the winner’s circle of frequently published writers deve…
