Transform Your Love of Writing to Meaningful Revenue

Are you a creative person? If that creativity extends to the written word, you could have a future in writing. Websites are always on the lookout for good writing.

Websites are used to sell products and services. They are full of informative articles and snippets of expert advice. You don’t think that the website owners write all of those interesting articles do you? Writing is not a requirement to being a successful website business owner, but good web content is needed to help the business make money.

This is where you come in. Writing content for websites is a lucrative business. If you have a grasp of basic grammar and spelling, and also like to write, you could be just the person that a website business owner needs to partner with.

Most websites post content that is around 400-500 words in length. You read articles at least that long in newspapers and magazines. Website content does have slightly different structural guidelines, but you can learn those with a good style book.

Writing content can be done at home in front of your home computer. This is an appealing proposition for stay-at-home moms and people looking to make some extra money. You can operate a full-time or part-time writing business.

To operate a content writing business from home, you will need a few basic tools:

* Computer (desktop or laptop)
* High speed Internet connection
* Printer/copier/fax/scanner (you can get an all-in-one printer)
* Telephone
* Software (accounting, time management, Microsoft Office, etc.)

Most people have these items in their home already. Your computer will need to be mostly dedicated to business since you need it to write.

The trick to any business is to get your feet wet. There are web-based businesses that deal in supplying good content to websites that need it. They may be willing to give you a shot as a freelancer to see how you work out.

Are you a writer?But, before you hire yourself out, try working with websites that publish popular content and pay for your work. Sites of this type give you the opportunity to write what you like and get paid for it. You may not get rich but you will gain the experience of writing for Internet-based content. And you will be doing something you love. These sites will have writer forums as well. Interact with other writers to learn writing tips and also how to promote your writing.

Join writing websites. Signing up is usually free and you can talk to other writers about the craft and their experiences writing website content. You’ll find a friend or two and maybe some leads on writing work.

Also, write every day. There is no other way to hone your skills except to write. If you have trouble coming up with topics, enroll in an online writing course that teaches about writing for the Internet.

Writing content is a good way for a writer to get their feet wet in the writing world and provides a valuable commodity.

Now back to my previous sentence, You may not get rich but you will gain the experience of writing for Internet-based content…doing something you love.” There is a big, HOWEVER. If you become a proficient writer, creative & your skill surpasses in excellence AND you create brand awareness in a niche that you can dominate – this is not a true statement for you. Here is the only example necessary to illustrate this point. Dan Kennedy, one of the world’s highest paid copywriters. He is paid by the hundreds of thousands for his well-crafted word placement.

His DKIC coaching & training is phenomenal (I happen to be a member). I first become aware of Dan Kennedy, the author when I began my training in marketing, specifically learning how to write persuasive copy that moves people to action. Here is an article by  Sean Platt, 14 Lessons From One of the World’s Highest Paid Copywriters with valuable lessons from the mind of Dan Kennedy.
