5 best ways to make money by writing 

You certainly know one thing, dear reader who likes to write.

It is not easy to break into writing. I am talking about the fact of wanting to become a known and recognized writer. It is frankly not easy unless you have a thunder feather.

In short, you can very well know how to write, and never see your work exposed to the world. This is completely normal.

You know and I know it. Everyone knows it. However, you can still live and live well if you do it right. I am talking about being a writer and being paid to write articles or any other type of document.

If that's why you're reading this article today, then it can be great for you (read on, what follows).

If you are looking - just like me - at the time for a solution to finally live from your passion for writing, you will be delighted to know that it is entirely possible.

Similarly, if it is not really your passion and that passion in general, you do not care and I understand you perfectly. So even if you don't care royal, you will also find a good way to make money by writing a few articles. Even if it's not your passion, I imagine you like it, a minimum. In short, let's get down to business.

The Truth About How To Make Money By Writing:

Do you want to hear the truth? Well, I will tell you straight out. Everyone would like to write

when they want to and for whom they want. When you want to earn money by writing, in general, it is mainly for the free side that this implies.

Basically, when you earn money with your pen, you have no fixed office, no fixed schedule. We work according to the inspiration of the moment; Yeah, yeah, that's how we fantasize about it.

A good big fantasy.

However, we must wake up. You will not have the life of Fran├žoise Sagan.

There's no point writing in your room while we wait for you to come pick you up. I know quite a few people who like to write and who wanted to get started in article writing.

They were so far from the practical side! Frankly, I could make an article on the subject (by the way, I would make one!)

They don't want to think about all the little glamorous little tasks that make writing life possible.

Basically, they fear that their perfect dream will tarnish if they bring it back to reality. The harsh reality, yes. The one who tells you that we don't live on love and fresh water and that we are not the genius that we thought we were, when we were teenagers. So they stay dreaming and never want to face reality. They are dreamers and I hope, my good friend, that you do not belong to this category.

They sit on their cozy dreams of glory, waiting for someone to come and get them.

But let's be honest, it will just never happen. Or do you really think someone will one day approach you and say:

“Hey you, the little budding genius! I heard that you like to write and I would like to pay you to write articles, that tells you ?? ”

Yes, that too is part of the dream. Must wake up.

Without a concrete strategy, nothing will happen.

So that's what would be needed to make your distant dream come true.

Experience has shown that vague plans generally fail. Basing your dreams in reality is what makes them come true. It's not more complicated than that. Even if it means thinking about things you prefer not to consider.

It pisses off and everyone has been there, if that can reassure you.

It is not enough to say that you want to make a living as a writer or editor for this to happen.

You must especially learn how to do it concretely. You need a concrete plan to bridge the gap between your dreams, your reality and your goal of being able to live by your pen.

And the more realistic your plan, the better. Believe me. You also don't have to follow the path of a random editor who succeeds in breaking through. It was chance and his lucky star perhaps that brought him to where he is. You assume that the lucky star will come to you when the time comes.

Rather choose a rational plan, which has worked and works for several guys who like to write just like you.

And, as I am generous, I decided to give you here, the 5 most realistic ways to earn money by writing.

how to make money by writing?

Here are the 5 most well-known ways to make money by writing articles:

  1. Write articles for popular blogs, journals and online (or print) magazines
  2. Create content for news agencies
  3. Become a successful Kindle author and sell your own books on Amazon.
  4. Be a crazy copywriter and know how to sell anything just with a clever mix of words
  5. Create a niche blog and promote products via affiliate.

There are so many ways to make money by writing. The most important thing then will be to choose your path and direction for your career as a new web copywriter.

Writing for a living offers a ton of benefits. Yes clearly. You earn a certain reputation online in your field, as long as you choose a specific area of ​​expertise such as travel.

Read the article about how to write travel articles.

1. Write articles for blogs or magazines:

Even if we talk about the press crisis or the death of the blog , know one thing: there will always be articles published. At least in our lifetime, anyway.

It's up to you, to jump on the right opportunities, to knock on the right doors. Go to the blogs you like the most and contact the administrator. Offer him articles, even free. You have nothing to lose for now. You're just going to gain experience and notoriety. Besides, don't do too much free stuff. Quickly switch to paid items.

Good advice that I would give you is also to specialize as quickly as possible. For example, if you want to write about travel exclusively, focus first on travel related blogs and magazines.

(If the subject interests you, by the way, you can read the article: Become a travel writer)

Remember the days of trifles, that success will not happen overnight, but you will have already taken the first steps towards your next success as an online writer.

Small note on blogs:

Although writing articles for popular blogs (such as writing guest articles) is still generally unpaid, most new authors trade their content for an exhibition (via a signature or an author biography).

But, again, quickly switch to “paid” mode. Contact magazines and bloggers very quickly and expose your price, without detour.

In general, the secret to success in this model is to tenaciously search for opportunities - whether it's a short article or a regular freelance writing job.

2. Create content for different editorial agencies:

In the past five years, content marketing - the concept of creating quality content to attract customers and build credibility and trust - has become in high demand.

The result? More and more companies are getting into market content. They are looking for content. Of course, they delegate this part. Typically, editorial agencies do this work.

And, so this is very clearly the second method: contact and work to work with copywriting agencies that will subcontract the orders of articles to you.

When I started, I went there, I even did salary portage for freelancers, when I was still in Paris.

The great advantage with this way of doing things is that we have contracts regularly and therefore earn money in the form of wages.

No cycle, no manual search, everything is facilitated in this direction there.

It is a little less sexy than the first method because it is not you who choose Some have a clear strategy, while others are just jumping on the train hoping that it will pay off.

Also, the orders are relatively varied. You may be asked to write white papers, press releases, white papers etc.

3. Write by becoming a best-selling Kindle author to Get paid:

What about selling your book not as an editor but as an author? Could it be your best life towards a life of freedom as a full-time writer?

Well, it is certainly more feasible than it was then, in any case. Ten years ago, writing a bestseller was a distant dream for most writers, and self-publishing on Kindle was often seen as an exercise in conceit. Yes, almost narcissism.

But today, thanks in large part to Amazon and Kindle, the self-published book market is gigantic and it is much more profitable to earn money by writing books on these platforms than by going through houses of classic editions. Unless of course you are an unrecognized genius writer.

One thing to remember in your quest to make a living from your pen. Remember that to publish and sell on Amazon, you will need to have an entrepreneurial mindset.

Forget the poet in you; You have to think business. Yes, yes, I know, it's not easy especially when you come out of a college of letters…

To be successful in selling your ebook, you need to have a business vision and target an established market with proven demand from readers. This does not mean that you should not follow your passion, but simply that you must be ready to validate it first.

You also have to be persistent and prolific - chances are you will have to publish several books before gaining popularity. It doesn't happen like that overnight. Likewise, you will need to make a LOT of sales to make a living.

4. Make money as a luxury copywriter: copywriter:

In summary, the writing was designed for readers to take specific action.

Sales letters, video scripts, even product descriptions - all need to be written by someone. We agree so far.

Writing may not seem fundamentally different from other forms of writing, but in practice it is a separate discipline.

When writing is specifically related to sales, it's roughly called copywriting.

For example, there are marketers who manage to sell hundreds of courses simply because they have sales pages that kill.

The words are so well used that the guy who reads ends up every second time buying the product.

Besides, you may have the best product in the world, but if your sales page is not well copied, you will sell peanuts.

In fact, I have a lot to say about copywriting. Sometimes it's so much and purely persuasion that you're close to being scammed. So it depends on the product you are given to sell, in a way.

But, if you have a great pen and you know how to sell, then becoming a copywriter can save you a lot of money. The prices can be quite high.

5. Write your own articles for your (niche) blog and make a living from the affiliate:

Ah! Here's my favorite way to do it! If you don't know my story , then I'll summarize it for you in a few words: I was a freelance writer for about 4 years before I started creating my blogs. So, I chose option 1 and 5 and I know what I'm talking about (without arrogance, huh).

I will be honest right away: it is difficult to create a blog that is popular. Really difficult. It is doable, certainly, but difficult.

And once you have created your blog and it has had some success, you may be surprised how little time you actually spend doing what you love most: writing.

What I mean is that at the beginning, when you start your blog and if you launch it with the objective of earning (a lot) of money with it, then, you will really be nothing more than an editor.

A blog has become a real business. So, creating a blog is really about creating a business with different things to take into account, other than writing.

The time when it was enough to write well-licked articles is over, let it be said.

That said, it's still important to write the articles yourself, if only to infuse the tone of your blog.

But, considering all the marketing steps that you have to do next, very necessarily, you will have to take on copywriters yourself… .At least for certain articles.

If not? The workload would be too great.

To earn money with your own articles on your own blog, I personally find it to be the best. You are free to write what you want and when you want. In addition, you can monetize in different ways and earn in the long run. Ah, the magic of the internet!

A bit like me, with my various articles on my blogs.

Like I said, there are many ways to make money with a blog and affiliate is one of them. Promoting affiliate products is a much smarter way to make money on a blog than creating your own product. At least at the start.

With an affiliate product, someone else has already done the hard work necessary to validate the market, create the product and improve it based on customer feedback. Someone else takes care of inquiries, payments, refunds, and pre-sale product support. What you have to do is promote it. As simple as that, yes.

In short, if you want to know more, on why and how to create a blog (and to live from it), I write a lot of article on the subject, in this blog, in case you haven't noticed.

Of course, writing and writing articles is still crucial to attract traffic to your blog. This is why, the better you write and the more you write, the more likely you are to make money because your traffic will be targeted and Important.
