It’s easy to be an online writer because you get to work from home so no time is wasted commuting, buying coffee or going out for lunch with colleagues. You can just get up in the morning, work for a few hours, and you’re done for the day.
But one question remains. How do you make money writing?
The secret (well, it’s not really a secret at all) is that you have to write a lot. No one earns a full-time income from writing one blog post or one article or one book. Even the most wealthiest writers write every day and they work fast.
And these days it’s so easy to earn money as an online writer. You just get up, write for a few hours, hit publish, and you’re done for the day.
But is it really that easy?
It is if you’re focused, self disciplined and can write fast.
If you want to earn money from your writing you need to be able to write fast because the more you write the more you can earn.
The easiest way to earn money from writing online is to write articles. And the articles you write can have many uses.
You can write short articles and use them as
Short eBook chapters
In fact, once you get into the daily swing of writing several articles, you find dozens of uses for them.
But first you need to be able to write them quickly and this is how you do it.
Pick a topic for your article. Make sure you’re only writing about one thing.
Pick 3 points you want to cover in your article.
Write the article using an opening paragraph, your 3 points and a concluding paragraph.
Using a simple outline like this can speed up the article writing process so that you should, within a week or so, be able to write an article in only 15 minutes, including research, outlining, writing and proof reading.
If you don’t think it’s possible to write an article that quickly, just try it. Spend a week doing nothing but writing articles using the simple outline I showed you. It should only take one week of practice for you to perfect your technique and write articles fast.
And when you can write an article in 15 minutes, that’s 4 per hour which, in a 5 hour day, is 20 articles a day. And if you work 5 days a week, that’s 100 articles. If you want to go even further, 100 articles a week over 50 weeks a year is 5,000 articles!
Can you imagine how much money you could earn if you could write 100 articles a week?
You could have a blog or website with 50 pages on new content, a whole string of emails waiting to out to your subscribers and an auto-responder of emails set up to help market whatever you are selling, whether it’s your own product or your working as an affiliate and a dozen or so marketing articles submitted to a few article directories to help bring more visitors to your website. And that’s what you could do in just 5 days.
And all it takes is for you to get started and you’ll soon be writing hundreds of articles every month.
