Are you frustrated when you try to find great Web writing gigs? Chances are that you have, because I hear tales of woe every day, and they shock me, because I know how desperate Web developers and companies are to find great writers and to reward them for their skills.
So why aren’t the great writers and the eager developers finding each other? Why do some Web writers persist in grubbing for so little reward, when they could be doing so much better?
Finally I had a blinding flash of the obvious: most Web writers lack real familiarity with the Web, and with how companies trade and operate online. A little background. I’ve been online since the 1980s, well before the birth of the Web; since the days of command line interfaces and bulletin board systems. I’m also a veteran tech journalist, writing for Australian computer magazines. So certain strategies seem obvious to me, but they’re much less obvious to other writers without extensive online experience.
It’s depressing to see writers floundering online. So for me, the challenge was how to help writers to make the most of their writing skills in the online environment.
Finally I hit on a solution: a full year’s worth of training in Web writing, taking writers zero Web writing income to $250 an hour, if they want to pursue top writing gigs.
The Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) training is based on my personal coaching programs; I’ve worked with many writers getting them up to speed on the online world, both new writers and experienced writers, so I know the system works.
If you want to make great money online, SYWON leads you step by step through the entire process; you earn while you learn.
