Are you interested in jobs in writing? There’s never been a better time to be a writer — the explosive growth of the Web means that you can get all the writing jobs you’ve ever wanted. Let’s look at the three great jobs which may be right for you.
1. Writing Articles: Start Small, Build a Big Business
Websites need content, because adding articles to a site ensures that the site gets more traffic from the search engines — the more content, the more traffic. Since this traffic can be converted into sales, sites are very willing to spend money hiring web writers to write articles.
Thousands of large sites hire writers to produce a certain number of articles each week. Smaller sites buy articles as they need them.
Here’s an important tip. Realize that you’ll need to start small by writing for smaller sites to gain experience. As your experience grows, you can write for larger sites which pay better rates.
2. Blogging: Can You Write Snippets Every Day?
Blogging has become mainstream. There were many blog jobs available for writers, but just as with writing articles, you need to start small. The more experience you have, the more you’re worth.
If you’re interested in blogging for sites, you need to create and write your own blog. This will build a presence for you online, and in addition, your blog will act as a writing sample.
Getting blogs jobs is all about building relationships. Once you’ve created your own blog, and are blogging consistently, approach companies directly, rather than hunting for work.
As your experience grows, it’s a good idea to build a team — team up with a designer, and a programmer, so that you can take on large projects.
3. Information Marketing: Create Info Products
Information sells online. Thousands of businesses have sprung up to meet the desire for fast information, delivered immediately. You’ll find dozens of writing jobs on the outsourcing sites every day for writers to create eBooks and other information products.
As with blogging, you need to get visible in this space. Take a couple of low-paying jobs in the beginning, to build your credits, and then go for higher paying jobs.
