How To Make Money Writing-What Not To Do
How To Make Money Writing-Wrong Steps
I guess the first advice I want to arm everyone with in how to make money writing is the things you shouldn't be doing. I can tell you this from experience as I have done all the wrong things in the past only to pay some pretty heavy prices.
Now I don't mean the small mistakes that we all make but rather I am talking about the mistakes that will cost you a lot of money. Everyone will be trying to sell you the latest greatest product on the internet to make sure you make money. In all honesty almost all the latest greatest programs are not what they are cut out to be. In fact most of them are really just garbage.
You see the people selling these really are not interested in helping you make money in most cases but rather they are very interested in taking any money you have in your bank account, paypal account or credit card.
How To Make Money Writing-Stay Away From Adwords
If you are looking for a great way to drain your bank account while learning to make money writing then go ahead and start using Adwords.
Now, I am not saying to never use Adwords because a lot of people make great money using this greatly popular tool. The problem is a lot of people are also losing a lot of money because they just don't know what they are doing.
Before you decide to jump into the world of Adwords I suggest you become an expert on SEO and keywords first. This will give you a great start but still doesn't guarantee anything.
After two years of serious affiliate marketing my partner and I are still very skeptical when it comes to using Adwords. We have used it a little but we are very careful and I like to think of us(especially her) as knowing what we are doing when it comes to SEO and keywords.
So if you want to learn how to make money writing then staying away from Adwords will be a good place not to start.
How To Make Money Writing-Need To Keep Writing
One of the biggest things when it comes to learn how to make money writing is to keep writing. Do not write a few pieces and then sit back and relax. You will never see money this way.
A few hubs and a few articles will make you no money when it comes to the internet. Oh sure you may get a few AdSense clicks but that's about as far as you will get.
Whether you like it or not you need to eat, dream, sleep, walk and talk writing. It needs to be your focus. You need to be thinking 5 pieces ahead all the time.
How To Make Money Writing-Unique Content
There are a few people who will tell you copied content is okay. They will tell you that Google has no problem with copied content. Well if you want to learn how to make money writing the biggest 2 words in your vocabulay needs to be unique content.
Google will always punish you for copied content. Others will eventually catch up to you and quickly realize you are too lazy to write your own material. If you can't even take the time in your own business to do your own work how long do you think your customers are going to trust you?
You need to understand that even if it takes you longer you are still better off writing less content that is unique as opposed to more copied material. Putting all your attention and focus into writing your own material will eventually turn into bigger dollars than if you decided to copy other peoples work.
Another thing to consider when you copy others people work is you are breaking the law. That's right, it is illegal to copy and use someone elses work without their permission and without giving the owner credit for the work.
All in all if you want to learn how to make money writing it just seems you are better off taking the time to do your own work. At the end of the day all your effort will always go further than stealing other peoples work and calling it yours.
How To Make Money Writing-A Few Last Words On What Not To Do
There are many other small things you need to learn on what not to do when you are learning how to make money writing. The thing is these are not so much on not what to do but which ones to use such as PLR and article spinners and submitters.
There are times when you can and should use these but you need to know which are good and which are garbage. Through out this series I hope to help you make smart decisions on some tools that really are worth paying for and others that really are garbage.
I know writing takes time. After all writing has been my number one tool for 3 years now and will continue to be for years to come. For some people that hate to write there are other options like out sourcing which we can get into at a later day as well.
People can argue with me as much as they want but no one can tell me you can't make money writing because almost 100% of my profits come as a result of my writing. As long as you realize the two most important points you too can do well.
Make sure your writing is quality and unique. if you follow that simple rule you will be well on your way on learning how to make money writing.
