Want to make great money writing articles? You can make $100 and more per article -- here's how.
Writing articles is a great way to make an income online, however many writers end up in a writing ghetto, writing like demons for a tiny income. While this may be a better option than zero income, with a little bit of know-how you can make much more for each of your articles.
Here's why: buyers pay for what they need. Some buyers at the lowest level have tiny budgets and can't afford good writers. It's your job to become the kind of writer who's worth a lot more, and who gets it.
Here's four tips which will help.
1. Build a Clientele of Article Buyers
Your first step is to develop a stable of buyers who regularly buy from you. This means you have money coming in. (However, do realize that the chance that you can convert a buyer who's paying you $5 per article into a $100 per article client is zero.)
With a regular income, no matter how small, you can turn your attention to buyers who pay more.
2. Find Web Sites Which Are Hungry for Great Content -- Get $1 a Word
Your next step is to specialize. Good specialties include business, technology and health. In all of these areas, clients are hungry for great content, and they're willing to pay $1 a word (and more) for it.
Start by discovering the difference between an 800 word article that's worth $10 to $20 dollars, and one that's worth $800. Once you understand the difference, you too can be paid $1 or more per word.
It will amaze you when you discover that it's easier to get high-paying article writing jobs than it is to get low-paid ones.
3. Promote Yourself on Your Own Blog
Are you blogging on your own blog? I hope you are. A blog is the easiest promotional tool ever. If you begrudge the time you spend blogging, you're killing your article writing career.
4. Raise Your Rates Consistently
Finally, raise your rates consistently. You can raise them as often as you prefer, but once a year is essential.
So there you have it: four tips which will help you to make $100 and more per article.
