If You Can Write, You CAN Make Money

Those who are new to Internet Marketing are often stunned at the simple fact that writing for other marketers can be a lucrative business all in itself. Sure you aren’t going to get rich from it, but you CAN build a sustainable and consistent income from it.

Of course, that’s assuming that you can write well for one thing. You’ll need some marketing skills to be successful as well – it’s not like people will be banging down your door for business right away. You’ll need to know how to present yourself to your market. You’ll need to know about your target market.

Writing Style

Different mediums do well with different writing styles. For example, you would not approach a 50 page ebook with the same mentality as a 10 page report necessarily. In addition, you might not approach a typical article the same way you would an email course. The other thing about style to keep in mind is to develop YOUR OWN. Don’t try to be like everybody else. Write the way you feel and don’t be afraid to put some passion into it. Passionate and ambitious writing is far more enjoyable to read than monotonous dry text.

TIP: Keep your sentences short and punchy, but don’t sacrifice getting your point across just to do so.

Target Market

There are many markets seeking proficient writers, but what I’m talking about today is writing for other Internet marketers. Learn everything you can about your target market. If you’re going to decide what to write, and sell rights to your writing, you’ll definitely need to pay attention to what your market is seeking. This is a tough area. It requires you to keep up to date on what niches are popular.  Now on the other hand, if you’re going to offer to do custom writing for others (a.k.a. ghostwriting), then your clients will typically already know what topic they want you to write about.

Pricing

This is where a lot of new writers get stuck. The thing to keep in mind is when you enter this type of field, you don’t want to prioritize profits right away. Make your main goal to gather feedback and testimonials from others, and to build up your portfolio. New writers typically will enter the field at a lower price, and then gradually raise their prices to reflect their worth and match the going rates.

A great place to take a look at new writers launching their services is the Warrior forum.
