Want to make a great income as a freelance writer?
As I’ve said many times before, and will go on saying that the key to your writing success is just two things – CREATION and PROMOTION.
You must promote (market) yourself and your writing to succeed. If no one knows what you do, no one can hire you.
“2.) Ongoing education makes a big difference to your online success. You don’t have to become an SEO expert, but you should devote consistent time to learning the latest trends and tactics in online marketing. Guitar teacher John Tuggle, profiled in the second interview, told me that ‘learning marketing has been the best thing I’ve ever learned how to do. I see tons of talent go to waste because of the lack of how to get the word out about yourself.'”
I know many writers are shy. However, you’re doing both yourself and your potential clients a huge disservice if you let this get the better of you.
You must promote, every day.
BTW, this teaching writers how and when and why to promote is the reason that most of my ebooks come with coaching. I want to stop you wasting years of your life because you don’t have experience. And aside from writing experience, experience in promotion is where 99 per cent of writers fall down.
I’ll always be grateful to two people – an agent and an editor – who helped me far beyond the calls of duty when I started writing around 30 years ago. They took a naive creative and set me on the road to understanding how writing and publishing works.
So do learn how to market, it’s the key to your writing success.
Want to develop a six-figure writing income?
The September 2007 issue of The Writer had a great story: “Secrets Of The Six-Figure Freelancers”. The story’s wonderful because it shows you the potential of a freelance writing career; with the development of the Web and its unlimited markets, if you can write, you can make a great income as a freelance writer.
I chuckled when I read the story because many writers think a “six figure income” is hype. Either that, or they think that a great income is reserved for copywriters, or genre novelists, or other specialist writers.
The fact is that YOU can develop a six-figure writing career: you just need to know that it’s possible to earn $250,000 a year and more as a freelance writer, and then make that your goal.
And of course, you need know-how. That’s what my writing ebook manuals give you. In 30 years as a freelance writer, I’ve learned the tricks of the writing trade, and I’d love to share those tricks with you, so many of my ebooks offer free coaching. Whatever your level of experience as a freelance writer, you can develop a fantastic career, when you know how.
