We are living in the “information age.” Advances in technology, environmental concerns, medicine, and computer programming have created a great need for continuous learning and information. An internet business along with “brick and mortar” businesses need articles.
Here are some thoughts to consider in relation to creating and operating an article writing business.
You may be reading this because you are searching for a way to make money online or you just want to work from home. I can assure you this can happen for you. Writing articles is just one way to do it. But, if you are a writer then hear me when I say, there is nothing like sitting at your own desk and putting your creativity into a good article.
The first advantage to doing this kind of online business is it is inexpensive to start. No money is needed to actually start the business other than having an internet connection and a laptop. You don’t even need to have a home internet connection really. I actually started out years ago at local coffee shops using their wifi. So, find yourself a used laptop for $100.00 on a discount site and get to work.
Next, go to freelance sites and create a profile for yourself. It is usually a free sign up. Tell folks what you will write and for how much money. Post a good picture of yourself. Upload some samples of your work. I started out on these kinds of sites making $5.00 for 150 words and grew from there.
The next step for you might be to build out a website for yourself. Publish articles on it that have something to do with article writing. Create a sample page. Create an About Me page. Post a payment method and decide on how much money you want for an established amount of words.
The “overhead” for an online article writing business is low. Your monthly expenditure will be for your internet connection, if you are using one. If you are disciplined and write well, people will begin to refer you to others and that is the best kind of advertising.
As you continue writing in various niches and subjects, you will find you will resonate more with some kinds of writings. This will allow you to develop an expertise in certain areas. Eventually, you can become the “go to” guy/girl for that subject. This will also allow you to bill appropriately for this professional expertise.
Keep your writing simple and on point. Give good value for the price you charge. Treat each customer with respect and do your best job every time you sit down at the computer.
Over time, your diligence will serve you and others well.
