Want to make money writing articles? You may have heard that articles are hot, and that you can build a great income from them. Here are four easy tips which will help.
1. Earn While You Learn: Discover the Buyers’ Hierarchy
Articles have become a commodity online because there’s a great market for them. However there’s an hierarchy in this particular market. If you’re not aware of this, you’re likely to stay at the bottom level and make very little money.
Essential know-how: the amount of money you make with your articles depends on how much money your buyers make. If your buyers are just making money from sources like Google AdSense you’re not likely to earn very much, simply because they usually don’t. They’re at the very bottom of the hierarchy.
Your aim is to work your way up to the top levels of the buyers’ hierarchy, earning while you learn, until you’re making great money.
2. Build Your Article Client List, and Stay in Touch
I know many writers who simply write articles, get paid for them, and then look for the next buyer. This is a mistake. If people have bought from you once, they will buy from you again.
Therefore you need to keep a client list, and stay in touch with your clients.
3. Ask Your Buyers What They Want
When you’ve got a list of buyers, ask them what types of articles they want. Usually they’ll be happy to tell you. They trust you, because they’ve bought from you before, and they know your writing style.
Be aware that they may be worried that you will share what they tell you with others: assure them of the confidentiality of the information they give you.
4. Schedule Your Writing and Get It Done
It’s very easy to get article writing jobs. However your aim is not just to get a single job, it’s to get ongoing gigs, as well as gigs which are worth real money to you. This means that you need to be utterly reliable, simply because reliable writers are as scarce as hen’s teeth.
As your writing jobs flow in, schedule them carefully.
Don’t overcommit yourself. Give yourself some wiggle room. However ensure that you schedule writing time each day, preferably at the start of the day, when you’re fresh. Get your writing done, and keep your deadlines, and your article writing clients will love you — and you’ll make money.
