Marketing Is The Only REAL Secret To A Fantastic Freelance Income
I correspond with writers who aren't selling, or who are making very little money, every day. I could compress my advice into a single word: "Market". Marketing skills are the only difference between a writer who's not selling, or is selling to tiny markets which pay in tiny amounts, and writers who are making a great income, and whose income goes up every month.
Great writers are great marketers of their writing. They have to be. Many writing venues are crowded. With some 150,000 books published in English each year, and magazine markets struggling as the Internet captures more advertising dollars, marketing your writing needs to be something that you do every day, as a matter of course.
This week's article lets you in on some of the secrets of using marketing and developing a highly lucrative writing career. Writing well is a skill that few people have, so you deserve to be well-compensated for the time you invest in learning how to write. Marketing ensures that as you become known, you can charge more for your work.
I should add - it's much more fun to be well paid than to be struggling. And there's no excuse for struggling in these boom times for writers. So if you're serious about wanting a six-figure income, and the security for your family that a high income brings, look to marketing.
My ebook "You CAN Sell Your Writing Now: Marketing Skills For Writers" teaches you essential marketing skills.
