Sure enough, we all will need more of it in 2014. The question is “Will you work for it?” I have numerous sites that pay you to write articles and those clients on those sites will pay you very well for the time and work required. Sometimes making money from books alone is not enough to keep our heads above water so we all have to find other solutions to maximize additional income opportunities.

I have a book on Amazon called “Article Writer Success.” In that book, you will find websites and blogs that pay you to write for them. That pay you can make is really good money if you will devote the time to earn it. After all, you are going to have to work somewhere unless you are rich or inherited a fortune from your family.

Are you serious about making money? Would you like to pursue a career in freelancing opportunities? Are you one of those people who grow tired of commuting to a job that you hate?

There is money to be made and things that you can conquer online in the web universe if you will seriously devote your time to attaining those life long goals you dream about. People can show you the opportunities but it is up to you alone as to whether you really want the kind of life that you might be constantly dreaming about.

As of this post, I’m currently working on a second book called “Article Writer Success, Volume 2.” In that book, more websites and blogs will be listed that pay you good money for writing for them. Most of the requirements of these companies are for you to provide identification and payment options on their application process.

I do a ton of freelance work as well as write books to publish on Amazon. In fact, I do very well with my career. You can say that I’m one of those people who took the initiative to make a living branching out on my own! The biggest thing about what I do today is that if you seriously take those same steps, you can achieve the same goals and make a good living also.

If you are a decent writer and seriously devote the time needed to freelancing, you can make money online. All of the websites on the web need information to fill their pages on websites and blogs. If you will perform the required tasks that the ones seeking writers ask for, you can make some great money for the work involved.

Here is the link to the first book, called “Article Writer Success.” http://www.amazon.com/Article-Writer-Success-Book-Master-ebook/dp/B00CRTEPIU —- Article Writer Success

Writing with Style

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Does it take a thousand words to get your message across? Whether you’re writing a new book or a simple article for submission to a website, here are a few tips that you should follow to get the most out of your work.

“Know what it is you want to say.” In order to write quality content, it helps greatly to have experience with the subject matter in that book or article. The more knowledge that the writer has on the subject makes it easier to tell the story. If that writer enjoys what they write about it only makes that story more interesting.

“Keeping it simple.” Readers know more about Writers that they follow than those Writers know about themselves. A Writer can’t fool their Readers by using word hypnosis on them. In other words, never change your writing style by using words that those readers are unaccustomed to reading in books or articles you are the Author of.

“Perfection from experience.” The more a Writer spends working in their craft, the better that they will become. If you don’t believe that is truth, take the time to explore that first manuscript or article you wrote.

“Pour your heart and soul into words written.” I read many books, articles and posts during the weeks out of the months. Sometimes, I’ll find something out there that is so well written that you just know that writer has written a perfect masterpiece. It will help make sales happen also.

Have you seen reviews on books where the reviewer claims they couldn’t put the book down? Those book stories were well written with an extreme seriousness to detail because that Author enjoyed writing the story just as much as those Readers enjoyed reading it. That is pouring your heart and soul into the story.

“Never force yourself to write.” Writing is all about something that you love and want to do. Look back over several months and you will remember certain times that you were writing that every sentence would flow like magic. That is called “The Zone.” During those periods, one can write hours upon hours in one sitting.

Sometimes, Writers will take breaks from writing because of “Writer’s Block.” Many try to train themselves into a daily habit of writing so many words per day. Writing is all about something you love and want to do. Never force yourself into a routine that will become stale. Write when you really want to and not because it is about making money. Never make writing, something you should love to do turn into something to worry about in regards to making money through the rush to produce books.

“Research! Research!” Oh yes, know everything about whatever it is in that story you’re writing about. For example, if you are explaining a scene in the 16th century of England about the clothing of that era in a book story, you best do that nifty little research so you’re accurate within those details in the book. Otherwise, you can bet a silver dollar that one of those readers of that story will inform you in a book review of mistakes made.

“The fear of what others might think or say about my writing.” Yes, it happens every single day on one website or another. You will find a new Writer or Author with this profound fear of publishing a new book or the same towards an article they posted somewhere online.

You need to put that fear behind you. Go read some of the comments posted on some of the most popular websites on highly targeted articles and you will see some of most ghastly use of words going today. As FDR once said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

I hope you enjoyed this little article and the tips offered from it help you in strengthening your desires to become a better writer. It is an extremely interesting subject and I may post more on it in the future.

So, you wish to pursue an Indie Author Self-Publishing Career? (Part 2)

By far one of the toughest challenges anyone will ever take on in life as a career is the self-publishing lifestyle. If you’re one of those recently starting out on the journey then you have already experienced just how hard it can be to write and market those books at the same time.

In the first part of this series, we explored just a small taste of what it is like to pursue this type of career. In this second installment, I’ll give you some inside information to shorten those headaches you probably develop from banging your head against the wall trying to find what works the easiest.

Well my friends, there are few easy solutions to what will work for you to sell thousands of books month after month. Your greatest ally is time. Yes time, because you have more of it than any other resource. What do you do with it? Do you waste yours? Do you invest it in learning? Do you just use all your time writing? Those are great questions to answer for yourself and surely, you can think of some more to ask yourself.

If you are a beginning Author with only a couple of books under your belt, the top advice that can be given is to continue to write more. If you’re writing a second or third book already, you need to be promoting the first one(s). On my site, you can find many ways to promote and market those books. That material comes out of my books published on Amazon. Sure, you can call that a way of marketing. I offer you free advice from material out of my books. By the way, I have another new book coming out soon, “SEO, What’s my Rank?”

If you are looking for ways to market books after you published them, then follow some of the steps listed here. Get you an author website going right away. Add a sign-up form on your landing page to gain an e-mail list of followers so you can reach out to them easier with a newsletter or a new book release. You might not convince everyone to sign but gradually the list will grow.

Many refuse to put all their apples into one cart, with that being going solo with Amazon. I don’t care what anyone else might think. A new Author needs to learn and grow! That being spoken, Amazon has the best platform with the tools and goodies to help. There is too much to overwhelm a new Author trying to self publish on other platforms so that is why I personally recommend Amazon alone.

Over time, you can always move books to other self-publishing outlets or publish new ones over the various others. I guarantee you that the bulk of your sales will come from Amazon. Another thing that will help you is to keep track of everything that you do with each book.

Make you a chart sheet to record the Title, blurb information, publish date, etc. Include on this chart, all the sites that your book is listed online. You see, if you have a handy little chart like this on each book, it makes it much easier to reference all the information on that book in nanoseconds. This is great for when you need it in a spur of the moment to post the information on a site for a free book promo or to publish through a paid ad. It keeps you from having to open several sites at once trying to gather the information.

Seek out all the places or sites that readers are going to in search of what your book is about. That means you are looking for that reader audience where they congregate. If your book is a fiction novel, you want to scour the universal web for those readers in hopes of grabbing attention on your book. If it is a non-fiction book about cooking with recipes, you will be looking for those readers at websites about food preparation, cooking cuisine, etc. On the Internet, the sky is the limit because the web is never-ending.

You might find many opportunities to guest blog a post on a site once you randomly begin to seek out those marketing venues for your books. Most everyone that has a decent size following on their sites offer guest blogging to Authors in the hope that it helps bring more visitors to their websites.

Try to spend at least one hour each day marketing your books in some shape, way or form. You might spend it one day commenting on a few sites. The next day you could spend it on social media. The following day you could spend it on Author or book forums commenting on posts. These little things help establish you as an Author. Bookbuzzr is a great place to use to gain additional exposure for your books. Nifty tools there to help you get sales on your books. For a small monthly fee of a few bucks, you have an arsenal at your fingertips to help you in your marketing tactics.

It has already been mentioned in past post on my site about offering a new book free and the sites are there written on a post if you will do your research. Doing a little preplanning before a free promotion can net you a lot of free downloads of your book. Many sites request advanced noticed before posting your free promo. The negative side of the free promotion is the possibility of getting one star reviews but if you are so fearful of reviews, why bother to publish? At one time, the free promotion could net an Author with many sales. That isn’t the case now but still many new Authors are finding decent sales after a free promo run on a new book.

Using all social media outlets will help you market your name, brand and those books that you write. Use them all, from twitter to Tumblr, from linkedin to pin-it, from your website to other websites. There are so many opportunities out there now to use media to get the word out about you and your books and by not taking advantage of it all is just like throwing it away.

A remarkable opportunity is a book series. It is the hot item going today to make an unknown into a well known. The secret? Making the first book in the series perma-free. I don’t know how long this marketing strategy will continue to succeed as many more Authors are finding it the key that unlocks the door to their success.

Alright, We covered a lot here. So, what is Social media? Goodreads, Twitter, facebook, google+, yahoo, linkedin, tumblr, etc. Next we have Content media, which is? They are Press releases, articles, guest posts, book bloggers, etc.

Those two, Social and Content go directly hand in hand with your website. That website is your Author Platform base. You are gaining an email list of followers to your site as an addition through hits. Your website is the foundation or house that supports everything else that you do. Now then, we are finally getting somewhere on what it takes to sell books.

I’ll continue this series later so look forward to it. All of my books are listed on Amazon and my site. You have to market every way possible. Have a nice weekend!

Why You Should Write Articles?

Many People seldom think about the money that they can and would make writing articles and submitting them to “content-hungry” websites willing to pay them top dollar for interesting content.

It is true! If you will take the time and commitment needed to write and submit them, you can make some serious income from your efforts. All you have to do is “find the right sites” to submit your works.

I recently have written a ebook that details in the book a list of links to some of the best article submission links for payment. It took a lot of time developing that ebook to find these websites but I made it convenient for those that need that time searching to write.

You can order that book at Amazon at this link http://www.amazon.com/Article-Writer-Success-ebook/dp/B00CRTEPIU

This book can help you succeed in article writing and will well pay for it’s price many times over once you collect payment for the first article you sell.

Make Good Income Writing Articles

I’ll tell you a secret probably many know little about. You can make some good money writing articles and submitting  them to websites that pay you for that content. The key to being successful with it is having a serious and sincere attitude that you’re working for someone else just like a day job.

I just published a new eBook on Amazon that gives you some of the best links to read what these websites expect and the amount that they pay. Once you’re article is submitted, reviewed. accepted and published, the payment for them is deposited into your Paypal accounts.

This is a good way to get started in a writing career for those that are interested. The more companies you work with just increase the amount of income you can make. It’s basically the same thing as being hired by a company but you’re in the freelance business working for yourself.

Working with these content hungry websites only furthers yourself for the possibility of finding a job paying great money writing for a living. I do freelance article marketing on the side and bring in enough money each month to pay most of the bills. Some months after I did a little more writing than usual, I made more that following couple of months.

The more time you invest writing content and investing in writing great articles, the more income you can earn. This new book I published will give you enough of the best paying websites to work you silly or in other words, keep you so busy that you will succeed.

I also tell you in the book how to write your articles to better the chance of it being approved and published. Some people might think it is hard to do this and be afraid to try it, but I promise you that if you will treat it like a job, you will make good money.
