This past week, we covered: copywriting tips, blogging, Kindle self-publishing, and writing jobs.
Want to get hired as a copywriter? Many copywriters are freelancers, however, you can certainly opt to get hired full-time either by an agency, or by a large company.
Blogging is fun. Blogging is profitable. Blogging can also be a total pain in the rear end, if you’re overwhelmed.
You’re either a new, or an established copywriter. How many services do you offer? Some copywriters offer a single service, such as writing Web sales pages. If you offer more services however, you will increase your income.
Want an easy way to make money from your writing skills? Write and sell ebooks. These days the “books” you sell online don’t need to be 300 pages. They can be 30 pages; or even 10 pages.
Google+ now has communities. Since you can set up private communities, I’ll be conducting some coaching and classes there in 2013.
Kindle self-publishing is hot. Every writer I know is considering taking a chance on the Kindle book store. One writer made $700 in his first month, publishing a cookbook of his grandmother’s recipes.
I love self-publishing on the Kindle. Here’s why. You can write whatever you like. I’ve got a long list of ebook ideas. Many are ideas I ignored, because the potential market is small. Others are ideas which I thought were too small for a book.
Looking for writing jobs? The easiest jobs are the ones right under your nose, close to home. Yet few writers go for them.
This is invariably because they’re looking for “writing” jobs, instead of thinking about what businesses need. Consider your local dentist, dry cleaning shop, gym and day spa … Better yet, go chat with the shop owners. Ask them what they need.
