Did you know that writing simple articles can lead to a profitable business? Once you get the magical knack, you’ll be shocked at what you can achieve, and how quickly you can achieve it. Everything starts when you set an ambitious goal.
I’ve been writing articles for 30 years. For many years, I considered myself a magazine writer; I contributed to one magazine for 15 years. These days, I focus on Web articles for the same reason I encourage you to do so: to make money, and to get known.
Let’s look at how you can do that.
1. Set an Ambitious Goal
Start by setting an ambitious goal — something that’s a stretch for you. This is all about mindset. You’ll be more enthusiastic about your projects when your goals are truly out of your comfort zone.
Decide what you want to be known for, too. Perhaps you want to be known as an expert at something or other; perhaps you want to be known as an expert article writer.
2. Write Articles for Yourself and Others
I strongly encourage you to crete a program for your efforts, so that you can track the results. If you can prove that you’re getting results, people will want to hire you to achieve those results for themselves.
Focus on developing quality materials.
Over the past couple of years, there’s a flood of junk content online. There’s no point in adding to it. You can’t compete with the companies which product tens of thousands of pieces of content over a month, and there’s no need to try.
Create content for yourself, too. Everything you create with your name on it is an advertisement. You’ll attract clients.
3. Promote Your Article Writing Services
Promote your services, on your website and blog, and elsewhere too. If you enjoy social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, use them. Don’t forget the article directories.
As soon as your business is set up, use paid advertising. This achieves quick results, but use it with other promotional methods to increase your reach.
You can turn article writing into a complete online business. There’s a huge demand for content, and that demand can only increase. Remember that in addition to making money, you should aim to get known for what you do. Once you have a profile, your business will take off.
Become an article maestro, and watch your income soar
One of the most exciting and lucrative writing careers you can develop is also the simplest to start, for both new, and established writers.
Just write articles. Write for newspapers, magazines, and the Web.
I’ve compiled three of my article writing guides into a superbly effective package for you. This package will inspire and motivate you, and shows you exactly what you need to do.
