Want to make money from your writing? It’s easy when you understand a simple point: the more people who know you, the higher your income. So let’s see how you get known, and get people to buy your writing services, in three steps.
Firstly, please fix one important point in your mind, and never forget it: your writing skills have immense value online. Writers have never had it better. I’ve been writing for 30 years, and I wish I were starting out today, because the opportunities for writers to make money online are truly unlimited.
Get Known, and Make More Money from Your Writing
1. Get Targeted Traffic to Your Website
Getting known starts with your website, so if you don’t have a site, get one. Having a site isn’t enough, however. You need targeted traffic: that is, people who visit your site and who are looking for what you’re selling on the site.
You’re a writer, so your “targeted traffic” consists of editors, website owners and other buyers of writing services. You need to get these people to visit your site.
There are many, many ways to do this. The fastest way is to buy traffic. That is, to advertise. You can go to Google AdWords, set up a campaign, and get traffic in less than half an hour.
However, if you’re new to advertising, you may want to hold off on paid advertising until you get some experience with free traffic generating methods like free classifieds sites (Craigslist), social media marketing (Twitter, LinkedIn), and article marketing.
2. Traffic Isn’t Enough: Get Them to Come Back
Now you’ve got traffic: congratulations. Getting traffic (even if it’s just 50 unique visitors a day) is a huge coup.
Your next step is to get those people who visited your site (the targeted traffic) to return. As a rule of thumb, it takes around seven contacts to get someone to buy from you. So you need to work out how you’ll get your daily visitors to come back.
Tip: try a blog.
3. Now They Know You, Get Them to Buy
The final step is to get the people who now know you through your site to buy.
You do this by making an irresistible offer.
So, there you have it: that’s how you get known, and get people to buy your writing services in three steps. Get writing, and join the other writers who are already making a fantastic income from their writing services.
