Want to write for the Web? You can. With millions of websites and publications, you can’t fail.
If you’re a new writer, and you’ve yet to start writing for the Web, I guarantee you that writing for the online audience can earn you a full-time income within a few months. Website owners are desperate for competent writers, who know how to write for the Web.
On the other hand, if you’re already writing as a professional, then writing for the Web will be a breeze for you – say goodbye to rejections! You already know how to write. All you need to know is how to write for Web formats.
If you’re a NEW writer – congratulations. In choosing to write for the Web, you’re tapping into the Zeitgeist, the spirit of the times: Web writing is lucrative now, and it will become even more lucrative in the future, as traditional writing markets like magazines switch to a Web-only format.
This switch-over is now happening apace.
I love writing for the Web because the opportunities are unlimited, and they’re multiplying all the time. The market for Web writing has surged for enterprising writers. For example, nowadays the Amazon Kindle is fueling a new writing bonanza: creating and selling ebooks on the Kindle platform.
The key word here is “enterprising”.
You’ve got to be prepared to not only browse for writing jobs, but also to approach companies directly. This doesn’t mean that you contact one or two companies a week, and think that you’re doing enough. You’re not.
Contact as many as you can. And if you’ve only got an hour a day to devote to this, you can contact someone in that hour. Like Nike, just do it. Don’t think about it. I promise you that it’s purely a numbers game. The more companies you contact, the more work you will get.
Of course, this is only in the beginning. Within a short time, you’ll be turning away work – and raising your rates.
