Ways for Writers to Make Money

Writers have a lot of fun.  Their work involves a lot of research that teaches them a great deal.  Each book, article or story you write will teach you something new and fascinating.  If you have a passion for writing then it is time to make this terrific hobby a career.

Start a blog

A successful blog is one of the best ways for writers to make money.  Other article writing involves being paid for every word you write but with your very own blog you can earn even if you aren’t at the desk.  A successful blog can earn you a lot of income on a monthly basis because you can use your blog for advertising and branding or you can get paid for allowing companies to guest post onto your blog.

Ways for Writers to Make Money

Ghostwrite articles for blogs

A lot of successful blog owners don’t have time to maintain their blogs. You can look out for these busy blogs and ghostwrite articles on their behalf.  You will earn a good income for your ghost work but no one will know that it is in fact your work.

Ghostwrite for famous authors

It is incredibly hard to become a famous author.  You can write numerous books and never get any sales simply because people are not willing to spend money or time reading works by unknown writers.  But that does not mean that there is no money in books.  You can always make a deal with a famous author and get him or her to sell your work as if it is the work of the author.  Your name won’t be featured on the book but you will at least get some money for your work.  This is known as ghostwriting.  A lot of authors will also hire a ghostwriter to write certain scenes in books, entire books or short stories on their behalf when they have great ideas but no time to work in these ideas.

Write your own book

Kindle is making it possible for any writer to self-publish books.  You simply write your book, edit it yourself and convert it into an e-book.  People all over the world can buy your books.  This is a great way to get your own books published if you cannot get publishers to do it for you or don’t have money for publishing.  The only problem with self-publishing is that you will be responsible for your own promoting and advertising which can be tedious and expensive but is a must to get people to read your work.

Write short stories for magazines

Magazines are always looking for something terrific to fill their pages.  You can start writing short stories for magazines or perhaps even give journalism a try and become a freelance journalist for magazines.

Write product reviews

Companies are always launching new products into the market.  People are always skeptical of products that have not been tested by others.  You can contact companies like cosmetics and more and enquire about writing reviews.  A lot of these companies will supply you with free samples of the products so you can write an accurate and reliable review based on true experience.
