Do you want to write for money online? There’s a huge demand for Web content, with several large companies hiring thousands of writers to write for them. In addition to these large media companies, there are hundreds of thousands of websites which buy content each and every week.
Payment for content varies, from a few cents per word, to a dollar a word and more.
So how do you get started writing for the Web?
Here’s a process you can follow.
1. Smart Small: Write for the Content-Buying Companies
It’s best to start small. Sign up with one of the large content-buying media companies. There are several large ones, and many smaller ones.
Be aware that you won’t make much money from these companies. There’s a big benefit however: you’ll gain experience. This experience is invaluable. You’re being paid to learn.
Not only will you gain experience but you’ll also develop a portfolio of examples of your writing. You can use this portfolio to target better-paying clients as your experience grows.
If you’re completely new to writing, spend several months exploring your talents by writing for these companies before striking out on your own.
2. Set up a Blog, to Showcase Your Writing Skills
Once you know how to post your work online, and feel comfortable, your next step is to set up your own blog. There are many free blogging applications, and it shouldn’t take you longer than a couple of minutes to set up your primary business blog.
Your blog should use your own name. This is because your aim is to get known as a Web writer.
Add content to your blog, targeting all the topics you want to be hired to cover. For example, perhaps you enjoy writing about dog training, or weight loss, or the iPad.
3. Promote Your Services on Your Blog: Your Client List Will Snowball
Once you’ve got your blog set up, you need to tell your blog’s visitors who you are and what you do… AND what you want them to do: hire you.
Essentially, you also have to ask for writing jobs, and keep asking.
No one can read your mind. Add a “Hire Me!” button to your sidebar, and make it easy for prospective clients to contact you, by posting your phone number and email address where they can find it. The easier you make it, the more clients you’ll get.
If you love to write, you can quickly make a small income. How rapidly your income grows is up to you.
