Making Money From Home As A Writer

Handsome writer with pipe
December 17th, 2013

Making money working from home and doing what you’re good at, is a dream come true for many an aspiring person. But this is just what content writing is all about. If you possess a good vocabulary, stay updated with current affairs, content writing may just be the thing for you. Earning a quick buck working in the comfort of your home will surely attract anyone’s attention. Freelance writing is one of the most sought after and highly paying professions today. Here are a few tips and tricks to make it work.
 
Selecting a good subject
 
Write on topics in which you are most interested in and in which you feel you are more knowledgeable than the average reader. Selecting good topics/subjects to write about is the first step to becoming a good writer. Remember that it will be obvious to your readers if you attempt to write on subjects that you have poor knowledge of. Writing such articles will be a waste of time and effort. The more you have knowledge and interest in the subject, the more effortlessly you can write articles worth reading! Stay committed and focused on subjects of your interest and choice.
 
Develop your personal style
 
Ever wonder how Guy Fieri or Simon Cowell click with the audience? They have developed their own inimitable style which makes their shows watched and followed by people all over. To be a good writer, it’s imperative that you develop your own style of writing. Your words, phrases and the content should bring the subject alive and vivid to the people reading them. When you develop your own style, you will build a rapport with your readers and they will be looking forward for your next publications.
 
Formats and grammar
 
Your articles should be properly formatted. Websites/Micro blogging sites usually specify the format for the articles. You should scrupulously follow the prescribed formats. What a shame it will be if your article is rejected just because it didn’t adhere to the proper format. Your article should also be free from grammatical mistakes. Otherwise it will look clumsy and you may draw flak.
Articles should generally be between 500 and 700 words. Don’t fall into the “copy and paste” trap as it can easily be detected by the websites and you’ll lose your effort’s worth.
 
Market yourself
 
When you see yourself as a budding freelance content writer, you should market yourself. Places like http://www.realwritingjobs.com/ and similar sites can help connect you to people looking for writers.
 
Spread the word among your family members, friends circle and community. Chances are, someone may require your services or know someone else who does. Keep your professional business cards ready to hand out to your acquaintances. Build your own website which contains sample articles written by you, your areas of interest, your contact information, pricing for your content- writing services.
 
Social media is another great way of promoting your business. Create your page in networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn and make sure you get your friends and family “like” your page! Emphasize on your capabilities and get potential customers hooked to your page.
 
With these few tips to get started, you can make the most being a content writer.
