Do you really enjoy writing? There are lots of different ways that you can use your writing skills online. Blogging is one income opportunity.
You might just be thinking about writing content for your own blog site, but don’t stop there. There are a lot of people that launch blogs and want good content. You can contact blog owners. You can sell some of your extra blogging content to other site owners or you can start selling your content through other means.
Turn your passion for writing into ebooks. Do you know anybody with an electronic book reader? You know those amazon kindle devices are getting really hot. All you have to do is think about all the people that are turning on those kindles and looking for something to read. Why not put your own hat into the pool of potential readers. Create ebooks and sell them through amazon. You don’t just have to stick with the amazon program, you can create simple ebooks and sell them or give them away for free.
Newsletters and mailing lists are another place that is screaming for content. Blog owners are not just looking for blogging content for the top of their sites. A lot of blogs have newsletters and ezines attached. Those sources need new content all the time also.
Your content can focus on the areas and types of information that you want to provide. You can do online reviews. This is one area that can open up the doors for your affiliate marketing efforts. You are using products already. Why not start joining affiliate programs and add the potential of another income stream. It might be as simple as providing a simple text link or an email address to get on the road to earning income with your writing skills.
Take a quick look at all the items that are around you. What do you see? Do you see a laptop or desktop computer? What about a cordless telephone? Laser printer? These are all products that people buy. What do you think about the products that you have purchased? Would you buy them again or get another brand? Just answering some of these simple questions provides the foundation for articles that could be placed on a blog.
Don’t sit on your writing skills. Start dusting them off and putting them to good use. Your writing does not have to be really fancy or overly complex. You can do that if you want, but you can just write for your own audience. Don’t forget to post some articles in article directories. You never know when they could get picked up by other web developers, ezine owners or readers.
