It's a sad fact that average writer only makes about $1,500 to $4,000 a year unless that writer is a business writer.
What about everyone else? Shouldn't other writers have a chance to make money writing, especially a full-time income?
Before Internet, writers didn't have many options. You could try to publish your poetry, fiction, nofiction, etc. in books and magazines, but pay was dismal at best unless you somehow managed to breakthru and become a superstar in your field.
The Internet changed everything. Writers suddenly had millions of places to publish their work, but again pay was sometimes dismal.
Now though, although you will find there are as many opinions on online marketing as there are marketers, here are four methods you can use to build your readership of your site and make a full-time living from your writing regardless of what kind of writing you do.
If you're starting on a shoestring, you'll still be able to build traffic without spending much money.
1. Write articles. As a writer, this should be a simple thing for you to do. Even if your chosen field isn't article writing, you can still easily create articles that readers will read.
Luckily, writing articles can be as simple as creating a list of items and then adding detail to each one.
You can also write step-by-step instructions on how to do something. This technique will work with just about any type of writing because internet surfers are always looking for how to information.
2. Create an optin list. The one thing that all of top marketers online agree on is that you must have a list.
There are two ways you can do this.
First, you can purchase leads, but make sure you find a respectable dealer and make sure that leads you purchase are targeted to your market.
Second, you can build your own list. This is cheaper, and it takes longer, but you'll be better off because you know your traffic is targeted.
These are people who want to be on your list and want what you sell.
