You Can Also Make Money From Article Writing

Author : Tinae Craft

Most people consider the idea of writing for money at some time. The advances in publishing over the Internet has given people the idea that writing for money is somehow easy. It's not quite so easy as that. Advances in self publishing have made it easier than ever. However, finding ways to get paid to write can be challenging.

Even so, there are plenty of people who still consider this as a way to make money online. There are some who think that article writing could be an easy way to make money online. The idea is simple: get someone to pay you to write articles for them. However, as with all business ideas, it's not quite as easy as it seems. If you still want to make money writing articles, below are some hints to give you a good start.

As with any venture, online article writing requires a fair bit of marketing. You need to be prepared to spend at least a couple of hours every day marketing yourself and seeking out clients. There are, thankfully, quite a few ways you can achieve this. You will need to join forums. Article directories can be a good way to start building a portfolio by submitting your own work. You can inform potential clients that you are offering your writing services. Think outside the box! You can also consider marketing yourself offline if you discover that you love writing. Never give out freebies. As you learn more about writing articles for money you will inevitably have at least one person suggest writing for free to help you build your portfolio. This is complete hogwash. You should never write a free article to show your skills to a client. If you will be doing free work then do it under your byline and for yourself. Any prospect trying to get you to do free work to prove your skills simply wants you to do free work for them. Don't let yourself get taken advantage of!

There are many other places you can conduct research; the internet isn't the only one. You can easily research a topic at a bookstore or a library. Google is simple. Anyone searching for the same terms you are will also find the same content. Using offline sources gives you an edge over writers who do not know how to do offline research. It is also a great way to differentiate your work from everything else that is on the internet. Writing articles can be an incredibly lucrative and rewarding way to make money online. It is also one of the hardest and most time intensive ways to earn money online. However, if you are ready to put in the time and effort there is little reason for you not to have a successful online writing career.
