Make Money From Home With Writing and Publishing
Writing And Publishing
If you have a passion for writing, then there are numerous ways you can make money utilising your skills whilst working from home. Wherever your writing expertise lies, you can earn an extra income from producing just about any form of text.
Professional website content writers are in high demand at present. If you consider how many thousands of websites there on the internet, that adds up to an awful lot of content and that content has to come from somewhere. Many website owners can manage the technical aspects of building or designing their sites, but when it comes to the written side of things find they need help putting their ideas, products or services into a clear, concise and easy to understand format.
Many website content writing positions can be found online and generally writers will set their fees at a specific amount per word. Other types of content writing work include catalogue description writing where the writer would be required to write a short and informative description of a particular product. Then there's writing articles for SEO and social media purposes. The company purchasing the articles will distribute these around the internet in order to bring more traffic to their site, gaining higher rankings in the search engines as a result. Finally there's blogging - a popular choice which entails writing short articles and excerpts about a particular subject or product, to be uploaded on a regular basis to a specific blog.
Self publishing can apply to both books and articles. When it comes to a book you have written, self publishing can be an expensive business but, if you are confident that your book will find a market, then it's a quick way to get your work out there and noticed. Royalties from self publishing can often be 50% of the sales, compared to traditional publishing house royalties which are between 8% and 12%. There are some self publishing companies who will only expect a one-off fee, but you must always read the small print before entering into any agreement to ensure there are no hidden charges.
When it comes to self publishing a book, you should also have a good marketing plan in place to give your work the best chance of selling once it has been published. Some self publishing companies can provide both marketing and distribution packages but you should expect to pay a further fee for these additional services. When it comes to self publishing articles you will find many article websites which will allow you to upload your article and add a link to your web page or site for free. This is not so much a way of making money from your written work, but more a way to use your writing to give your website better exposure. More traffic means more customers which, in turn, should lead to increased sales.
Advertising your services is a must if you want to build a good client base. There are several excellent advertising sites where you can submit your advert for free. Always give careful thought to what you want to include in your ad, state the areas you have experience in and why your writing abilities far outshine the next person's. When setting your fee, try not to undercut yourself. You can always negotiate with clients if they have a large workload and need a small reduction, but beware of the companies out there that expect something for virtually nothing. Some of these businesses will offer only a few pence per article and when you take into account the time and effort involved in the researching and writing of a piece it's not worth your while to accept positions like these.
