Freelance Writing and other ways to Make Money Online
I enjoy freelance writing too much to ever give it up. That being said, there are other ways to make money online that correspond nicely with a career as a freelance writer. Learning more about these other opportunities may open quite a few doors for you. Are you willing to expand into other areas if it means earning more money?
Here are three other ways many freelance writers are earning additional online income:
1. Blogging. Believe it or not, you can earn a lot of money by having a popular blog. The nice thing about this is that you are in charge of what you blog about, the topics you choose, and how you decide to monetize your project. While this blog makes me some extra money each month, it is far from my most profitable website.
2. Develop web properties. This is very similar to blogging. If you enjoy writing, as well as other aspects of web development, such as design, you should consider creating websites/blogs as income earners. At this time I have approximately 15 websites/blogs that generate monthly income on auto-pilot. Not only is this profitable, but it is a great chance of pace to my regular freelance writing workload.
3. Affiliate marketing. Some freelance writers will enjoy this, others wonâ€™t. Affiliate marketing is the act of selling a product or service for somebody else. When successful, the end result is payment (commission) based on a predetermined percentage of the sale price. I dabble a bit in affiliate marketing, and have found it to be quite exciting. This is especially true when it comes time to write the sales copy for my campaigns.
If you are a freelance writer you may want to consider the other ways you can make money online. The three ideas above are a good place to start.Â
