I’ve met a lot of people who think that just because they can write (and some of them quite well) that they can make lots of money online. Ok, there are some writers that are lucky enough to get by on just their writing skills. But for most writers, there’s a lot more to writing when it comes to earning an income online.
Once you’ve written an article and posted it somewhere, the real work begins.

In order to make money from your writing, you need to get people to read what you’ve written. That means marketing. And there are a lot of different ways to market your words. In order to start making money, you have to become an expert in at least a few marketing techniques.
Marketing could include:
Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+ and others)
Email lists – build a big email list of people that like what you write and you can get lots of eyes on your work
Facebook Ads/Twitter Ads/Instagram Ads
Find a couple marketing venues that you love and become an expert in using them.
But there’s more than just marketing.
You need to learn how to search engine optimize your writing. That means using keywords correctly, learning to use tags, and learning what keywords people are using to find articles of the same or similar topics as yours. If you can master search engine optimization, you’ll start to find your articles showing up at the top of the search ranks for the keywords you’re targeting.
And this is just the beginning!
The truth is, that you can earn more money by writing less articles if you give it some careful thought. And I have. In fact, I put it all in this short ebook. It’s only 99 cents on Amazon (less than a cup of coffee!) or you can read it on Kindle Unlimited for free!
