The Truth About Writing For Money
There are people in the world who make a good living writing. There is likely close to 1000 others for every 1 of those who are making very little. The concept is a fantastic one, and success is possible. It is just against the odds. There are a large number of elements that must come together for a person to be successful doing this. The first is of course, that a person must be able to write informative or interesting material. That will provide a platform to build on. If you feel that you fit the bill, then the next step is choosing a subject that is popular and relevant. This is where a lot of authors fail. You can write the best hubs in the world, but if they are about how long it takes paint to dry, people probably won't read them. So let's act as if you can not only write, but you have the smarts to figure out great topics, too. That means you are rich, right? No way, not yet. Now that your material has substance and quality, you will need to make sure that every article is search engine friendly. How much money you are making from your writing will depend on this heavily. Make sure to use good key words, and get those keywords into your text and subtitles. This will give your writing some gravity when the topic is searched for on the search engines. If you are wise enough to have made it this far, maybe you are cut out to be the 1 in 1000, maybe not. Assuming that you could acquire all of the qualities that I mentioned above, you will still have more to do. One of those things is to gain popularity. Having a lot of contacts would get you ahead of the game here, but it is not absolutely necessary. If you join groups and make contacts in the fields that you write about, you can potentially find an audience. This is one of the most difficult parts. After that, there is one more key to making your writing profitable. A page view is worth very little, but a purchase via your hub/article can be worth a great deal. I suggest finding products that are used in your field(s) of expertise and do a solid promotional piece. Any person who makes a purchase via your recommendation (hub) will be putting money in your pocket. I have found that 1000 page views appears to be equal to a single transaction if the viewer makes a purchase. That's where the money is at. So, what's the truth about writing for money? You will have to overcome the odds to be successful. Such is life. Good luck.
