Article Writers: Go Where the Money Is
First of all, if you write articles for $2 or $5 or $7, and you’re happy with the amount of money you’re making working for those prices, this message isn’t for you.
On the other hand, if you’re frustrated with the amount of money you’re making writing articles, and would like to significantly increase your writing income, please read on.
I recently received a call from an old client of mine. He owns a string of local insurance agencies, and I write the sales copy for his website, newspaper ads, and direct mail pieces. He was calling to give me a copywriting referral.
A good friend of his was getting ready to open up an upscale restaurant, and was looking for someone to write sales copy for his newspaper ads, as well as his direct mail pieces. Because of my heavy work load, I was forced to refer the client to someone else. And that’s the entire point of this post:
If you want to make good money writing, the money is not online, it’s offline!
Most offline businesses don’t know anything about $2 articles. And if you approach them about writing articles, or press releases for their business, you can charge significantly more for your writing services than you’re currently charging – provided you’re a competent writer.
The offline business culture is entirely different than it is online. An offline business wouldn’t think it was out of the ordinary to pay $100 or more for a single press release. Because they don’t know any different.
Heck, you could even look into writing resumes for people. I know writers who charge $100 or more to write a single resume. In fact, there are companies that are making millions, doing nothing but writing resumes for people. So the money is definitely out there. Again, provided you’re a competent writer.
Also, subscribe to magazines like Writer’s Digest. You’d be amazed how many people are looking for competent writers to write all kind of things – papers for college students, special reports, resumes…even entire book projects.
Plus, you’ll be supported by an entire community of writers who share your hopes, dreams and aspirations of success.
So if you would like to increase your writing income, go where the money is…go offline!
