Writing from home could mean freelance writing for
your local newspaper, or writing a book, or writing
resumes for other people. It could mean writing technical
documents for the IT company you used to work for, or
training material on a subject you are an expert in.
It can also mean writing content on the web. This could
be articles, Blog entries, or web site content. There
is a huge demand for content, as a website's success
depends on its content and links to it, which affect
rankings in the search engines.
If you search on the internet for writing from home
jobs, you will find a range of sites, where you can
register as a writer and might be asked to bid on jobs,
or sites where you get paid for the articles you write.
The amount you get paid varies hugely, and in some
cases you have to pay a monthly fee to be able to see
the listings of work available. I need to try some of
these out to see if they are genuine.
Another way to earn money writing, is to write your
own Blog and earn money through affiliate
Or, if you are good at the sales pitch, professional
copywriters charge a decent fee for a marketing pitch.
For example, if I were to write
an eBook, I might hire someone to put together the
sales page for me. They would know how to write it to
appeal to the right audience, get people hooked and
hopefully buy my book.
