Secrets of Successful Online Writers

Updated on January 15, 2012

So you want to become a successful online writer ay?

That's a noble and very ambitious goal! It's a wonderful profession that you can be successful at, if you know just how to do it...

Write Because You LOVE It

Seriously, when you write, you have a voice that sticks out to your readers, and if you aren't passionate about what you are writing, it will show and your writing will stink.

Don't Limit Yourself

Seriously, try out all sorts of topics and subjects. Writing about anything that catches your fancy, pisses you off or excites you. You can write about anything from the worlds rarest toadstools to the most intimate sex positions in the karma sutra. You can write about why you think the sky is blue, or what trends you see popping up in youngsters these days.

Don't limit yourself to what you can write about EVER. If you are open to learning anything and writing passionately about it, you'll not only gain a diverse and wide following, but you'll learn more and renew your obsession for writing as you go.

Find Your Niches

Now, even though you don't want to limit yourself, it's still a good idea to have some niche - areas of expertise that you can write about with your eyes closed. If you don't yet have your niches, don't worry, just follow the previous tip and you'll find them as you go.

Get a Personal Writing Coach

Seriously, I cannot find enough words to explain just how valuable it is to have a personal writing coach. Someone who can be your sounding board, give you advice or guidance when you need, and help inspire you when you feel like you've got no motivation left. Someone who knows the in's and out's of professional online writing and marketing.

Having a personal writing coach takes off half the pressure, and fast tracks you to a level of success most online writers will never achieve.
