Never before in history of business of writing have opportunities opened up and presented themselves in such a large quantity and scale for writers to easily win so much regular business and revenue.
If you know anything about writers of old you will know that they mostly starved, some to death. Yes, they often had to pay such a high price for their love of writing.
Today everything has changed so dramatically and so suddenly. Thanks mainly to internet and huge hungry market it continues to build at high every day, business of writing has been changed forever.
Sadly however, many writers are yet to fully wake up to new realties of internet and fresh and different business and revenue opportunities that are suddenly within such easy reach of any writer. Many offline writers are still stuck saying that they will never write $3 or $5 articles (see my article on this controversial subject at
Yet same writers had no problem starting off their careers writing 10-cents-per-word articles in old days. Some even wrote for publications that pay in copies and others that don’t even pay (just to get clippings of their published work. And yet those clippings were not anywhere near as effective as “online writing clippings” – that is your articles posted free at article sites, can be today).
But for you to succeed as an online writer you must first understand that all online writing is business writing. In bricks and mortar world business writing is writing about boring stocks and sometimes boring companies and trying to explain why they are so successful or why they have failed. Incidentally I personally find such writing fascinating.
In online writing, business writing is different. You can write on any subject, giving a lot of useful details and advice but in end, you must find a way of getting readers to do what you want them to do. Your objective could be to get them to visit your website or blog for more information and this win higher traffic, which gives you many possibilities. Or your objective could be to get them to head straight to your affiliate website.
In other words your writing is always business writing because end objective is to sell something, even if it is just ideas. And yet moment your writing looks like it is selling, it will be shunned and people will not want to come anywhere near your writing. A good example is this article that you are reading so eagerly. It is actually selling something. Get my point? The kind of writing articles do online is very different.
