Which Topics Seem to be Make Money in Online Writing?
People who start blogs, websites or begin writing online at places like HubPages always ask this single question. While the top three lucrative niches are making-money, weight-loss and love they are not necessarily going to make you money. First, the niches are overly saturated and it is difficult to get any type of ranking on Google for them. Secondly, if you try to write on something that you have no interest in or know very little about, it will show and you'll end up spinning your wheels until you give up. So what do you write about?
Write What You Know
It's an old adage, but one that serves you well. Simply put, write about topics you know well and that interest you. Even when you are searching for freelance writing jobs, it is good to find topics that match your interests. Writing what you know and topics you have interest in will serve you two-fold. You will cut down on your research and writing time, because you already have a working knowledge of the subject. You know how frustrating it gets sometimes when you are attempting to research a subject you've never written about before. Conflicting information, facts and figures can lead you astray sometimes. On the other hand when you write what you know, you become the authority on the subject.
The other reason this is such good advice is because when you write what you know, you never run out of ideas about what to write. Getting a blog off the ground, or consistently writing to promote a product requires posting on a regular basis. It is time consuming enough to write an article, proofread and upload it to the platform. Eliminate the need to “come up” with something to write everyday. Draw off your experiences or knowledge of topics that you know like the back of your hand.
Are You Chasing Money or Does It Follow You?
Although people create blogs or write articles at places like HubPages for a variety of reasons, there are those of us who do write for money. The bottom line is whether you are racking your brain chasing down the money, or allowing your words to flow naturally and letting the money come to you. There is a difference, and one comes a lot easier than you might think.
Constantly chasing the next “big” topic becomes frustrating and burns you out quickly. Chances are high that hundreds of other people are chasing down that next “big” topic as well. Soon everybody begins sounding the same and the “big” topic market is saturated.
However if you like organic container gardening and enjoy writing about it, you'll find that your immediate market is smaller and so is your competition. Do a little bit of keyword research, and choose some good ones AFTER you've written your article. Massage the keywords into the article where they fit naturally. You'll find that by writing on what you enjoy, doing just a little SEO and writing regularly that you'll develop a following. Once you develop a following, the rest becomes easy. Sure it takes a bit longer to see the financial results you want, but those financial results will only grow each and every month.
Making money as an online writer isn't a “get-rich quick” process. It is a business that requires planning, nurturing, consistency and persistence. It is fun way to earn money online. The only time you should chase money as a writer is collecting from private clients. (Even then, private clients should pay you on time for well-written content) Allow the money to follow you by creating quality content on your interests for your blogs and writing platforms like HubPages.
