Want to make money writing in 2014? Here’s the easiest way I know how — create websites. You can sell your websites if you wish, or keep them.
As I said in this post, Make Money Writing: $500 a Day From a Successful Website:
You can turn a website into a home business. You don’t need to invest a cent. Your inspiration, talent, and writing skills are all you need. Creating websites is FUN. Create them. You won’t hit a home run with every site, but each site teaches you something. And whether a website makes a dollar a day for you, or hundreds of dollars a day, it’s hugely satisfying to create something out of nothing.
You can create a website in minutes, using a service like Weebly, and it’s essentially FREE. I use Weebly to prototype websites for clients, because it’s such fun to use.
Create websites in hours… and profit
Over the past 12 months, writers are becoming more aware that they need a “home” on the Web. Whether you’re writing ebooks, or are selling your writing services, you need somewhere where people can find you.
Sadly, writers are making bad choices. I was speaking to a writer who’d put a lot of time and energy into a Facebook page. She was doing very well, selling her ebooks, and her services. Then Facebook changed. It stopped showing her page in her fans’ streams. Her traffic dropped by 90 per cent.
That’s always the danger when you create a faux “website” on networks like Facebook. You need your own home on the Web — or many homes, and that means creating your own websites. Networks like Facebook draw in people who put their lives onto these sites. Then they change how they operate. This always happens.
Create your own money-making websites, and you’ll ensure that it never happens to you.
Making money writing by creating websites is one of the easiest ways I know to create side projects which are profitable. Can you create a website which makes $500 a day? That depends on you. I know one thing however for certain: if you don’t try, it won’t happen. And if you try, even if you make just $50 a day, it’s a nice little income for a few hours of work.
