How to Make Money from Writing

There are different ways to make money, let’s look at how to make money from writing.

We will discuss freelance writing, blogging, and affiliate marketing.

Freelance Writing

There are numerous different places that will pay you to do freelance writing such as blogs (guest blogging), magazines, and journals. According to Jennifer Roland who wrote Earn Money Online: 92 Websites That Pay Writers $50+, for SmartBlogger you have a number of categories that you can write about. Areas such as business, career, finance, essays, family, parenting, health, lifestyle, general interest, tech, travel, and food. It is amazing just how many websites need content. If you love to write and you want to be paid for it, look into different sites and discover who you should contact about being paid. You can even negotiate with some. Write the article and collect your fee.

Author

If you enjoy writing stories, whether nonfiction or fiction based you can become a Kindle author. This allows you to flex your creative muscles and become a published author. As Glen Long has written in The Five Most Realistic Ways to Make a Living as a Writer, for SmartBlogger you will need to be a prolific writer and will likely have published three books before the money becomes even close to a full-time income. The good thing is that once your books become popular you will earn money from your back catalogue as your audience will be looking for more of your material. This may take a couple of years but it is do-able.

 

Blogging

Why not show off your writing skills and build your own Blog. Its a great way to show your work to the general public. A blog can be a non-fiction one or a blog that contains information about a niche market. Gain subscribers that share their email information with you and become an affiliate marketer. We have a blog that we started with the training provided through Wealthy Affiliate. WA has taught us all we need to know to build and advance our blog to the point where the affiliate marketing makes an income. Click here to read a review of WA  and find out more information.
