This week in Fab Freelance Writing Ezine, we talk about why you should LOVE your competition.
Here’s an excerpt from the Editorial:
Love your competitors — they’re the key to a great income, because they grow your market
Writers tend to get bent out of shape about their competitors. This is silly. In reality, you have NO competition. (See this week’s article, scroll down to read it.)
Your competitors benefit you hugely, you can’t do without them. For one thing, they grow the market for your words.
My family’s background is in farming. I love animals and farming, almost as much as I love writing. So understanding markets comes as second nature to me. Size matters. It’s impossible to survive on your own, in farming as in writing.
For example, consider the huge new market that Amazon’s creating with its Kindle. That market is in its infancy. As more writers make more money (Joe Konrath made $100,000 from Amazon alone in just three weeks), more writers jump on board.
When more writers jump on board, it means that there’s more for buyers to buy. More choices lead to excitement, and more purchases. There’s a snowball effect.
Read more in the ezine, it’s out tomorrow.
